The light was lovely under the trees, particularly the circuit around the bandstand. The sun flecs dappled the course and the different shades of green (the only grey here, being the aged runners’ hair) made the colour scheme terrific. In the field of 242 runners (a new record), Liam BARRY was first, Daniel SMITH 2nd and Sam THOM 3rd.In the ladies, Yoko MIYA (PB) was first, Claire BARRY (P) 2nd and Gooya MODZBAR 3rd. Yoko MIYA, had the highest age grade (82%) followed by Janne FAULKNER (First Timer) and Claire BARRY. It must have been Ladies Day at the races, as the fourth placed woman in position and age grade, Maria KROONENBERG, also had a PB. I must find out what the KROONENERG family had for breakfast, as all three members running are running so well. David LEAR, Liam BARRY and Jim WILSON had the highest age grade in the men.
In all there were 31 first timers of whom 18 had run at other parkrun locations. Visitors included Neil (143 parkruns) and Jacqueline HOLLOWAY (38), David (116) and Lindsey MARSHALL (88) and Ray DAVIES (65).
Nico PINHEIRO PAPP was the first JM10, David NEVILLE won the JM11-14 and Liam BARRY JM15-17. Isabella WARE won the JW10 followed by sister Lauren (PB) and Noa OWEN (well done girls), Isabel Kroonenberg (PB) was 1st JW11-14 and India JAMES JW11-14. Juniors to achieve PBs included Isabel Kroonenberg, Lauren WARE, Will CLIFTON, Nico PINHEIRO PAPP and Leo Ross. There were 32 PBs.
Sixteen athletic clubs were represented by 37 runners, with the Auckland YMCA Marathon club contributing thirteen.

Please bring your barcode each week, without a barcode you will appear as ‘unknown’ on the results. If you’d like a durable plastic barcode (key tag) you can order one online at https://www.parkrun.co.nz/news/ It’ll be posted to you in about a week – perfect if you don’t have a printer and so much better for rainy days!
parkrun cannot operate without the assistance of volunteers. We encourage parkrunners to volunteer three times a year, so if you are injured or have a race on a Sunday, and therefore don’t want to run parkrun one week, we would welcome your help. Go onto the Cornwall parkrun webpage and email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your availability and which Saturday you can volunteer.
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.
