Another wet morning greeted the Studley parkrunners this week but it was still a great run or walk in the park. As usual our volunteers were awesome and we have some great photos on our Facebook page.
We love having visitors join us each week. This week, Albert Park legend Vin Martin joined us and left some nice words after his visit...
Mindfulness - Studley parkrun in a word. Running beside a river, along winding trails through bushland. Great course, great company, great setting. Thank you Leigh, Dave, John Pocock and all the gang at Studley for event management with a minimum of fuss.
