Studley parkrun #20 – 9th July 2016

Lots of fog around Melbourne on Saturday for a different view of our course. We welcomed our newest Run Director Aaron into the fold and everything ran smoothly. Thanks to all our volunteers for making that happen... and here is proof that volunteering can be fun. Send us an email if you want to have fun volunteering in future weeks.
Volunteers are awesome
