With temperatures not so low (or the ground soggy) this Saturday - running conditions were perfect for tackling those PB's.
Thanks to our wonderful volunteers this morning - everything ran like a well oiled machine ... and special thanks to our amazing pacers who helped 36 people get a PB - great effort!
We welcomed 26 first timers at Stones Corner parkrun and we hope to see you back again next week.
Congratulations to our April parkrunner of the month - Dee Eldridge
A big thank you goes out to this weeks volunteers:
Antony GLEDSTONE • Cassandra ZAYONCE • Charmaine CONSOLATI • Gillian EASTGATE • Jeanette MCGHEE • Jenny GEARING • Mark MOLLER • Natalie PETERSEN • Nia SCHUHEN • Steve BECK • Warren CHEESMAN

This is the most convenient way to carry your parkrun Athlete ID barcode - on a durable plastic key tag. No more soggy paper barcode! Attach it to your car keys, shoelace, necklace, wristband or zip and you won't need to worry about forgetting it.
Simply visit the BentLogic website to order. The cost is $6 AUD (including postage) and best of all, $2 from each key tag will be donated back to parkrun.
Cafe Elvira offer all parkrunners free hot drinks each week on display of their barcode. All parkrunners get free basic coffee and tea, and only $2.50 for hot chocolate and chai latte (volunteers get all hot drinks free). They're open from 6-1 and can be found on the same side of the road as the library/toilets and about 300m up the road. There's always a few of us up there after the run so come say hi!
