We had visiting parkrunners, brand new parkrunners, our regular parkrunners, spectators, volunteers and a Koala.... all enjoying a magnificent sunny Easter Saturday morning.
The Easter Bunny left a few tracks and clues on the way to the turnaround where parkrunners were greeted by our Easter Bunny Marshals Mandi and Maria armed with a basket of chocolate eggs! Our other Easter Bunny Judy lefty another basket of eggs at the table. There was chocolate everywhere!
Of the 59 parkrunners today 16 were first timers and we welcomed plenty of visiting parkrunners from Maribyrnong, Berwick Springs, Karkarook, Highlands, Coburg, Torquay, Gardiners Creek, Horseshoe Bay, Hamilton, Mansfield, Adelaide and Warrnambool. We’re glad you chose to spend your Easter parkrun with us, and we wish those of you holidaying in our beautiful part of the world a safe and relaxing break and hope you come back again soon.
