The Unofficial, but VERY Popular, Twilight Run 2013

As an unofficial parkrun, and therefore no times, no tokens given out or PBs recorded, it is difficult to say exactly how many people took part in the Twilight Run.  But the turnout exceeded expectations because there were HEEEAAAAAAAPS of Rockingham parkrunners, and a few visitors from other Perth events, down at the beach enjoying a run in the last of the afternoon's rays.

A quick greeting from the Event Director before heading off.

 

Safety was a bigger issue than usual, due to the massive increase in regular park users.  Despite this, the event was incident free, although the large crowd of runners moving past did receive some bemused and curious looks from onlookers!

The serious folks timed themselves, and others just enjoyed the atmosphere, the location and the beautiful afternoon.  All in all, everyone had a rather pleasant way to finish the day, particularly those that found their way to a local bar for a few coldies and pizza!!

For those interested, you can log your time as a Freedom Run.  Just go to one of your results emails or the weekly parkrun news.  Look for the link to 'manage your profile' and follow the links from there.  While you're there, you may need to change your home run to Rockingham if you haven't already done so and you were previously registered at Claisebrook Cove prior to Rockingham parkrun launching.
