Misty conditions, with light rain threatening, meant that Will LEARY showed the way home to two first timers, Michael DAVIS (Northern Suburbs, 49 parkruns) and Barry KELLY.Two First Timers were the first of the ladies, Allie WALTERS and Claire BAUDOUIN followed by Lucy LANE. Michael DAVIS (78%), Christopher ROBB and Jim WILSON had the highest age grade in the men; Allie WALTERS, Sue Kirk and Karen MATHEWS had the highest age grade in the women.
Of the 198 runners, there were 22 first timers of whom 11 had run at other parkrun locations (5 of them from running clubs). Visitors included Sheila (152 parkruns) and Ian OLDACRE (147 parkruns) of Andover AC. Those from exotic climes included a parkrunner from The Dominican Republic.
Liam BATES was the first JM10, Albert MOODY won the JM11-14 and Ethan MASANI JM15-17. Isabella WARE won the JW10, Peyton LEIGH (PB) was 1st JW11-14 and Joana NGAN JW15-17. Juniors to achieve PBs also included Amy JOHNSTON. There were 25 PBs, including Man YU in her 162nd parkrun.
Eighteen athletic clubs were represented by 30 runners, with the Auckland YMCA Marathon club contributing eight (a good number of the club runners, and other parkrunners were away at the Taupo Relay).

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.
