New Years Day Double

Well another fantastic NYD double is happening between Stanthorpe parkrun and our friends at Warwick parkrun. We will operate the same times as last year,that is a 7 am start in Warwick followed by a 8.30 am start in Stanthorpe (keeping in mind not to rush between events as we would like everyone to get there safe and sound). We will be flexible with the start time to allow everyone a chance to do the double. #newyear

 

Stanthorpe parkrun #209 – 4th Birthday! 8 December 2018

Stanthorpe parkrun celebrated their 4th birthday last Saturday in blustery conditions. 77 parkrunners and walkers from all over including Stanthorpe, Highfields, Warwick, Brisbane and the coast turned up to join in celebrations. Special guests included Ian Wickham, parkrun Event Ambassador, along with the Warwick parkrun event team who offered their time to volunteer, and also Kirsten Ellis who set up Stanthorpe parkrun 4 years ago.

parkrun has changed the lives of many people across Australia and in Stanthorpe it’s no different. Over the past 12 months participants have collectively completed the course 3291 at the local event and each week about a third of our parkrunners actually park walk, and are every bit as valued as faster runners.

Each month Stanthorpe parkrun awards a parkrunner of the month to acknowledge someone’s dedication and commitment not just to their own parkrunning, but also to the local event. Kirsty Irwin was presented with the November award, and was acknowledged for attending all the November events, volunteering once and achieving a personal best time. She was also recognised for achieving the most personal best times out of anybody at Stanthorpe parkrun in the last year, with 13! Well done Kirsty.

There were 4 personal best times on Saturday from Charlie, Jackie, Ray and Nigel - well done guys. After the run participants enjoyed some delicious birthday cake donated by Vixens Bakery Café along with great coffee from the Piccolo Coffee Van.

Stanthorpe parkrun happens at Talc Street every Saturday at 7am and anybody who would like to give parkrun a go can register at www.parkrun.com.au or contact the local team on stanthorpeoffice@parkrun.com.au.

 

Stanthorpe parkrun Report #208

Stanthorpe parkrun Report #208 1 December 2018

It was the first summer parkrun event for this year and it certainly didn't disappoint with a beautiful warm morning to greet 60 runners and walkers. Peter Patti took the reins for the first time as Run Director for the day, and Jodie Harvey achieved a personal best time. Regular parkrunners welcomed eleven first timers including an enthusiastic group from Zonta who participated dressed in orange to show their support for the International campaign to eliminate violence against women. A huge thanks goes to our volunteers for the day Gidge, Karen, Ursula, Peter, Brock, Michael and Amanda.

Next Saturday 8 December is Stanthorpe parkrun's 4th Birthday and everybody is invited to join in the fun by walking or running 5 km and then stay for some coffee and birthday cake. We would especially like to see some new faces as well as people who have not been for a while to join us at this special event. People participating for the first time should register at www.parkrun.com.au and print their unique barcode to bring along. Stanthorpe parkrun is free and takes place every Saturday morning at 7am, now at a slightly different location closer to the skate park in Talc Street. This week the run brief will commence at 6.50 am so come on down and experience the joy of parkrun.
