The weather gods seems to hear the plea from the entire state of South Australia and provided a much cooler (although still windy) morning for West Beach parkrun event #185. We had several milestones - 50s and a 100! - and visitors from all parts of the world, interstate from Victoria and Queensland, and internationally from England and Canada! Well done to everyone on a somewhat challenging day weatherwise.
Unfortunately we had a couple of incidents where dogs were not controlled, one which could have ended a lot worse than it did. While parkrun does pride itself on being dog friendly and welcoming, owners MUST keep their dogs controlled, on a short leash when running/walking, and definitely not off lead at the finish area. This is for the safety of your dogs as well as parkrunners.
See you all next Saturday, and hopefully at the New Years Day 7:30am parkrun event as well.
This week 248 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 29 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests.
The event was made possible by 11 volunteers:
David BAILEY • Ian HILL • Briony BULLARD • Chris BOWDEN • Aleta GUNN • Michael GUNN • James GUNN • Caycee FELL • Narelle ALVARO • Rebecca NORMAN • Annabel JONES
