A slightly cooler and smoke free morning saw 108 parkrunners finish their 5km around the Condamine River. We welcomed visitors from Townsville, Highfields, Northern Beaches, Lismore, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast and New York USA! I hope I didn't miss anyone.

PBs were earned by Alicia Hayes, Jeffrey Cohen, Stan Petersen, Joshua Rye, Sue Daniel, Louise Ryan, Hollie Pleasance, Aiden Shuptrine and Malcolm Daniel. Congratulations everyone!

As always we could not have parkrun without our amazing volunteers - Imelda, Anita, Len, Jacob, Rebecca and Tara.

Enjoy your weekend and we hope to see you kicking off the New Year the way you intend to continue - running with us at parkrun.

 

“Howzat?” 30th November 2019

The crack of leather on willow, or a vociferous “Howzat?”. Two of the most iconic sounds of summer. Almost equally well heard is something along the lines of “@%#$ it’s hot!”, uttered by many a parkrunner, red as a beetroot, as they finish their regular Saturday morning five kilometre run under the bright Aussie sun...

Yes, today was warm, and standing still at the finish line in a volunteer role turned out to be a good idea! Thanks to Len, Bob, Jill and Vanessa for filling those positions today, allowing everyone else to complain about the heat. As mentioned during the briefing, we are in need of plenty of vollies for the remainder of the year, and thanks go to those people who wrote their name in the book this morning. For those regular runners who were not in attendance today, but are reading this report, we also spoke about our desire to add to our Run Director ranks. If you would like to join the event team, please contact us so we can give you further information.

Congratulations to Anita and Cathy for their milestones today. Technically Anita reached her 50 run mark a couple of weeks ago, but kept it quiet, so I had to go and spoil that! Cathy became our latest member of the 100 club - no small feat either. Well done both of you.

For some reason there is a delay in the results being processed, so I don’t know if anyone achieved a PB this morning. But, should anyone have done so, great work, cause it was hot!

Ok, plenty more cricket beckons, so I’m outta here! Enjoy the weekend everyone, and see you all next Saturday, as we hit the home straight of 2019.

Warwick parkrun Report, 16th November 2019 Event #318

A brave 47 runners and 6 volunteers risked the possibility of dusty and smoky conditions today. Thankfully the conditions were not as bad as we were expecting and lots of great times were posted, well done to a

We welcomed one visitor from Armidale and we trust that you had a great run and have a great stay in Warwick. We also met a new local runner who has joined us, well done and look forward to seeing you again.

As always we can't run this event without the awesome volunteers that make it all happen. This week we had Tom Brown, Gale Ward, Kelly Nielsen, Jemmah Nielsen, Aiden Shuptrine, Michaela Shuptrine and Rebecca Shuptrine. Thankyou again for making it all go smoothly.

Also a shout out needs to go to our juniors and their volunteering efforts well done and thankyou.

Congratulations to all for achieving over 20000 runners around our course today, lucky number 4 got the official title but without you all we wouldn't have achieved this huge milestone. That is approximately 3300 runners per year or 16500 kms each year, great work team.

We are in need of volunteers next week we need a timekeeper and a photographers, the jobs are so easy and we are all here to help if you are unsure.

Well done to all again and have a great weekend.

Thankyou to Josh for stepping up to run with a very fast junior. We certainly appreciated it, as I'm sure did Ben.

Warwick parkrun Event #160, 29th October 2016

WOW What a great morning for our Rodeo parkrun today. We had 61 runners off to a whip-cracking start thanks to the Naughton brothers skills. Our pacers took us round our 5K run in style - thanks to them and all of todays volunteers.

With the rodeo on in town we saw some new faces. We had visitors to Warwick parkrun joining us from afar as well as a new face having his first parkrun circuit debut. Thanks for your company, hope you enjoyed our scenic course! The warming weather also saw more of our wonderful parkrun pooches come for their walk which is fantastic to see.

 

Two of our most junior parkrunners today took to our path with one making it all the way around both laps (high 5 Aiden) whilst the other's enthusiastic sprinting around the first lap left the second a bit daunting this time.

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful morning and look forward to seeing you all again next week. Remember to volunteer - it's easy and friendly. Your RD Sandra

 

Event #144, 2nd July 2016

What a wonderful morning for a parkrun....a brisk 0 degrees (or -1, I've heard both reports), frost, NO wind....perfect!

Our volunteers were all rugged up for the morning. Thankyou to Jayne keeping the times, Kelly handing out the finish tokens, Autumn scanning the barcodes, Caitlyn (and her beautiful puppy) filled the tailrunner spot. A special thankyou to Joseph who braved the cold lonely conditions at the weir to cheer you on and dispense high 5s. And when you check out our fantastic photos today, they are from the fabulous Annie.

We always love having new parkrunners and visitors, but when they come on a frosty winter morning we feel truly honoured. We welcomed two new parkrunners, Rachel and Stella, and David visited from Chermside parkrun.

We celebrated two milestones.....one of our Run Directors, Karen, ran her 100th parkrun. One of our volunteers extra-ordinaire Ross was joined by a tribe of superheroes to run his 50th parkrun. Congratulations to both of you.

Ellena MacDonald (and beautiful Gypsy) is our parkrunner of the month for June, receiving a lovely parkrun keyring. Our volunteer of the month for June is Imelda Bacon, the recipient of a coffee and cake voucher from Urban Mist Speciality Coffees.

 

 

We had some great PBs this week. If you are chasing a faster parkrun time, next week is for you....it's pacer week! We are seeking someone to pace at 22.5 min, 25 min, 27.5 min and 30 min. We have a 20 min pacer locked and loaded. If you are keen to pace some runners to a PB please let us know.

Enjoy your weekend. Linda (your Run Director)
