The Ponds parkrun Event #57 run report (25 June 2016)

The core team was gearing up for a snowy parkrun yesterday. We’ve had lots of rain in the previous weeks, what is a little bit of frost to make for another exciting event. Sure it was a freezing 6°C morning, but at 8am the sun radiated to warm our frozen fingers. And perhaps some parkrunners and parkwalkers suffered a bit of cabin fever from the previous rainy weekend as 293 showed up! 40 were first timers and 37 recorded newPersonal Bests.

Do you know that you could earn volunteer points and run points at the same time? Check out the photo gallery to find out how. It is a role called 'pre-event setup', we will show you how it works. If you are on taper or simply you’ve done 8 parkruns, please think about volunteering.
WE NEED YOU. Check out our roster and let us know what role interests you ~ http://www.parkrun.com.au/theponds/futureroster/ We have spaces for marshals, backup timer and photographer this upcoming Saturday.

One final message to all our beloved parkrunners who have major events this first weekend of July ~ **You are all going to rock it! Enjoy your “very long runs” and share your experience with us next parkrunday.**
