Tuggeranong parkrun

Event number 176

9th July 2016

A perfect winter morning greeted 176 runners for the weekend, including 11 first timers. The conditions certainly proved to be great for fast time, as we saw 22 new Personal Bests. It was all possible thanks to the following volunteers: Amy ARMRIDING, Gary CLARKE, David CLARKE, Peter DALY, Lee EGERTON, Kelly FINN, Lisa LIN, Michele MCDONALD, Barbara MCKAY, Karen MCKAY, and Andrew John WALKER.

An honourable mention goes out this week to Kahlia BURRIDGE, who clocked up her 50th parkrun in style with a PB! Kahlia has run all but two of her parkruns with us in Tuggeranong (the others being in Kingscliff and over with the new Burley Griffin parkrun), and has impressively volunteered five times in five different roles. Well done Kahlia.
