Shepparton parkrun weekly news – event #310

Happy birthday to us!
A great turn out for out 6th birthday! How fast does the time go. From our humble beginnings, where around 60 people showed up to give this new idea a go, to now when there are frequently more than 200 of us giving it a crack. Way better weather for being outside today, vast contrast to yesterday, and we were glad that everyone took the opportunity to enjoy themselves this morning with us.

This week 221 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 11 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 15 volunteers: Allan CONNOLLY • Kerry CONNOLLY • Justine RYAN • Carmel RYAN • Louise DWYER • Kate DAINTON • Bree HANSLOW • Andrea SCHOLZ • Demi WOOD • Sharleen BACHELOR • Ray RYAN • Julie GOODALL • Peter SEXTON • Ruby DAINTON • Georgie WASER

We had tourists this week from Bright parkrun and Albury parkrun.
