It was a foggy morning for parkrun #26 at Warringal Parklands, but that did not deter over 100 parkrunners from their 5km run or walk.
A very warm welcome to the twenty-four people who had their personal barcodes scanned at Warringal Parklands parkrun for the very first time today, especially those who were at parkrun for the first time: Andrew KAIGHIN, Angus COOPER, Annie ROTEN, Billy COOPER, Bronwyn WALKLEY, Fiona PILEGGI, Harper RAMSAY, Hudson RAMSAY, Isla MOORE, Jack NELSON, James COOPER, James WARD, Joshua FIELD, Karol ILIOPOULOS, Kendall PHILLIPS, Lorraine MCCONNELL, Luke WHITMORE, Madeline STOKES, Melissa GRANDEMANGE, Musashi FUJIHARA, Nadia RAMSAY, Nigel FANNING, Rachel DAPIRAN, and Shaun BRIEN. We hope to see you all again soon!
Warringal Parklands parkrun is not a race, but many of us get great joy and motivation from a personal best. Congratulations to those twenty-six participants who completed our five kilometre course faster than ever before today: Alex POLATOS (20:38), Amanda AITKEN (31:02), Aurora JARVIS (22:33), Barney HENRY (24:37), Ben VULINOVIC (22:30), Brenton HALL (18:50), Daniel JENK (30:06), Graeme SEELEY (33:58), Haley FIELD (19:27), Himadi GAMBRELL (31:12), James TAYLOR (22:58), James TELFORD (20:29), John MULLANE (30:48), Lachlan JENK (30:05), Laura ADAMS (27:54), Louise RIEDERER-HILL (27:16), Luke MALARA (20:28), Michael NOLAN (24:22), Niamh HENRY (24:36), Nicole STEPHENS (32:43), Nyree POTTER (30:36), Peter EDWARDS (31:02), Roberto DI PASQUALE (26:18), Simon FIELD (20:32), Simon WALSH (19:08) and Simone FITZGERALD (27:50).

Don't forget your barcode! #dfyb
This week's results include eight "Unknown" participants. This is because they forgot their barcode.
Printed barcodes are used at all parkrun events globally to record your results. You can collect and print your barcode from parkrun.com. Alternatively, you can order your barcode on a laser engraved silicone wristband or other ID accessories from the parkrun Australia shop. We are strict with regard to this policy as we process over 100,000 results every weekend and if we were to relax our approach it would increase the amount of work for our volunteers.
If you'd like to learn more about the history of the printed barcode at parkrun and why this policy is in place, take a listen to the special No barcode, no result, no exceptions episode of the excellent Free, Weekly, Timed podcast.
Thanks to this week's volunteers
Every parkrun event relies on volunteers and volunteering is a wonderful way to make friends, feel great and have fun. We're very grateful to everyone who's volunteered at Warringal Parklands parkrun in the past.
This weekend's community event was brought to you by fifteen wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Laura ADAMS, Amanda AITKEN, Kristy ANDERSON, Indira BARROW, Silvia BUGAY, Colleen DALTON, Sharon FRASER, Jim HOPKINS, Luke MCDOUGALL, Steven O'CONNELL, Chris PITTOCK, Ella PITTOCK, Daniel REES, Pauline VANDENBERG and Dugal WALLACE.
Please visit our FAQ to learn all about volunteering at parkrun.
Please download the Virtual Volunteer App
The Virtual Volunteer app replaces timing and scanning hardware at parkrun events and helps maintain our free-to-participate model as we expand. All parkrun events are now required to be ‘app-only’ and we no longer have stand-alone timers or scanners.
To see how easy this app is to use, read the user guide.

Photographs at parkrun
Most of our participants and volunteers love to have their photo taken during our events and shared via social media. We do understand that not everybody feels the same way.
All parkrun events to use the arms crossed over the chest or face as a signal that a person does not want their photo taken and/or not publicised on social media (as modelled in this picture), so please let your event photographer know by using this signal if you do not wish to be photographed.
If you have been photographed and would like a photograph withdrawn, please drop us an email or an instant message with a link to the image and we'd be happy to take it down for you.
For more information, please visit photographs on our support site.
