Event 324

Cornwall parkrun
Event number 324
22nd September 2018

Hi everyone

Thank you to all those who braved a chilly start to the morning and welcome to the visitors who came along from around the world, Germany, France and UK and also locally of course! There were 26 brand new first timers and in that group 5 were new juniors under 10 - Leo, Louis, James, Harry and Lucas, welcome to you all!

Congratulations also go to Ben Coley who ran his 100th parkrun on Saturday!

We wish Caitlin Barton all the very best for her baby boys who are about to arrive in the next few weeks and look forward to hearing her and Chris' lovely news, thanks for coming along to visit!

On that note we'd like to mention that Caitlin has obviously had to step down for the time being from her responsibilities as co - Event Director with Jeff for Cornwall Park parkrun. Jeff Parkinson has ably managed the running of this event over the past number of months. However, we do hope that other parkrunners will come on board to lend a hand so Jeff can have some Saturdays when he can come and simply run. Being a Run Director is very rewarding and gives a different aspect to how parkrun works and one gets to know more wonderful parkrunners from the amazing community we have at Cornwall Park!

Get in touch with Jeff on the Cornwall office email and there are many other ways to volunteer too like writing the Run Report - that way you can run too! Look forward to hearing from you.

Lastly - Caitlin would like to thank everyone for her beautiful baby gift baskets and she feels very spoiled, but it is much appreciated!

Cheers and see you all next parkrunday :)

Event number 302
21st April 2018

Today was lovely running weather and it certainly brought a lot of runners and walkers out to enjoy it! So many visitors from Australia, South Africa, Japan and Germany. We also had a contingent from Western Springs parkrun join us today due to the unfortunate second cancellation of that event - lovely to have you all though!

Congratulations to Hamish Thomson who received his Junior 10 certificate, he ran his 11th parkrun today and Marcia who has now volunteered for over 25 times! Daniel Jones ran his 50th parkrun today - congratulations!

Actually out of our volunteers  today there were four more who are well over 25 times volunteering - Samantha, Cerise, Larry and Denise! Many thanks for always pitching in when needed, but of course thank you to all our volunteers without whom parkrun couldn't happen every Saturday.

Today there was an 'all girl' power team at the finish line and regrettably the pictures that were taken are all blurry! Sorry girls :(

Among the visitors today was Martin O'Sullivan (274 runs), long time parkrunner from Lower Hutt, with his sons - "Early morning drive from Turangi to parkrun Cornwall Park, warm morning in the City of Sails and great turnout. James completed his 15th different NZ course on run 88 and Trent 13th different course on run 86. Tauranga inaugural next weekend". All the best for that one Martin!

 

Looking forward to seeing most of you again next parkrunday and have a good week in between!

If you would like to run and volunteer you can do an earlier ‘freedom’ run or even write the run report for our website! Anyone wishing to volunteer their talents as a photographer is most welcome too.
