Guest Report from Peet Oosthuizen

155 of us were privileged on this slightly overcast day with a relatively mild temperature of 11 degree Celsius to complete this beautiful parkrun course. We hope that circumstances will return to normal for all 22 parkrun countries around the world as soon as possible.

We had an international visitor today from the UK. We also welcomed visitors from Blenheim parkrun, Puarenga parkrun in Roturua and Millwater parkrun.

The first male and the first female to finish the parkrun were respectively Jack Ryan and Shamiso Sisimayi.

Congratulations to our juniors who achieved PB’s today. They were: Timothy, Archie, Olivia, Zachary, Lihini, Siyumi, Dan and Jessica.
