A beautiful misty morning greeted 110 participants to the river front. This week saw 17 first timers enjoy Taree parkrun and we had visitors from Sandgate, Petrie and Canberra.
The volunteer spots this week were filled by the Taree Masons, who did a sterling job once again. They have become regular volunteers at Taree parkrun, it's so good to have their support. If you haven't yet volunteered, why not come and chat to us next week or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org ? We only ask you to volunteer 3 times a year and when you do volunteer, you will receive the maximum points towards the end of year points score.
Our Run Director for the day was Steve Morton. After a minor hiccup with the stopwatch, Steve set the runners off with parkrun "pups" singing barking excitedly as everyone went past. The front runners set a cracking pace which eventually saw the following 31 people achieve PB's:
