WE ARE BACK!!!!
It was perfect weather this morning for parkrun to come back after many months away. It was great to see many familiar faces and so many smiles.
A very warm welcome to the twelve 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 PATTEN, Chandni BUMB, Christy PANAYIDES, Elizabeth STROUD, Janine LIVERSAGE, Meredith KERR, Nigel ROFF, Stelio PANAYIDES, Steve GAUNSON, Suzy LU, Valdis PAUZERS, and Vicki GEORGAKLIS. 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 eleven participants who completed our five kilometre course faster than ever before today: Adrian JONES (24:15), Amit BUMB (25:52), Andrew JONES (23:58), Bob QIAN (21:31), David ISAACS (37:31), Dhanush RUBYCHANDRAN (23:11), Georgia BIANCHIN (24:48), Jason LOVERIDGE (22:59), Noah BURGESS (24:45), Petar STOLIC (22:04) and Sam HASSETT (21:12). May your new PBs be short-lived!
Age Category Records
It's pretty special to set a new benchmark for your age category. Today we saw this happen and we want to celebrate it.
- Brody MCCARTHY set a new SM20-24 record of 00:17:57 (72.61 %)
Very well done indeed!
Don't forget your barcode! #dfyb
This week's results include one "Unknown" participant. This is because they forgot their barcode.
Barcodes are used at all parkrun events globally to record your results. You can collect, display, 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 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 fourteen wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Tracey BANNAN, Andrew BIANCHIN, Karina BIANCHIN, David BUERCKNER, Colleen DALTON, Olivier DAVID, Wendy GLEN, Doris GLIER, Lee HARGREAVES, Luke MCDOUGALL, Steven O'CONNELL, Daniel REES, Kate WAKELIN and Gary ZUCCALA.
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.
This week we welcomed participants registered with the following clubs: Diamond Valley AC, Westerfoldians, Crosbie Crew, Melbourne Midday Milers, Herne Hill Harriers, Glasshouse Run Club, Merri Creek Running Club, Achilles Running Club Melbourne and Salvos Striders.
Are your ICE details up to date?
Should anything happen to you while at parkrun, or in life in general, having readily accessible "In Case of Emergency" (ICE) contact details can be important. At parkrun, this information can be recorded in our system and the details will automatically print on your barcode.
It's also wise to store the information in your smartphone and iPhones have a function built into the Health App so that Medical ID information can be accessed even when the phone is locked.
If you’ve been parkrunning for a while, you may have registered before we started collecting ICE data. In that case, please re-print your barcode or order a new parkrun Athlete ID Key Tag from Bent Logic.
