Run Report 10 July 2021

Barry Curtis parkrun
Event number 401
10th July 2021

This week 148 people ran, jogged and walked in temperatures that must have been at least 10 degrees warmer than our event last week.  We welcomed visitors from Hamilton and Western Springs, and of the 9 people who were visiting Barry Curtis parkrun for the first time, 5 people were doing their very first parkrun. We hope all our first-timers enjoyed themselves today. Please come again!

The slightly muddy conditions didn't deter 10 people from recording new Personal Bests. Congratulations to you all.

Thank you to the following people for volunteering:

David DOWLING • Karen ROUT • Grant LINCOLN • Ray FREEMAN • Tristan NICHOLLS • Ronald LOBJOIT • Keegan KOKKE • Lana LOBJOIT • Jono WILLIS • Maria SHALLARD • Caitlin SHALLARD • Mia FALETANOAI • Josiah WILLIS • Andrew SHALLARD • Juliet HUNT • Gail FLEMING • Emily WILLIS

We really appreciate you giving up your time to help run our event. If you would like to give volunteering a go, please email us at or write your name on the whiteboard on Saturday morning.  If you're unsure about something, talk to Ray, and he will show you how easy it is.

Thank you to Sequel Café for giving us coffee vouchers to reward some of our volunteers. This morning Jono and Dave were the recipients and the Willis family also received a pizza voucher kindly donated by Gareth. Sequel makes lovely coffees, so if you'd like to join us for the after parkrun get-together, you'd be very welcome. It's a great way to get to know people a little better!

Thank you too to our parkrun sponsor, The Athlete's Foot, who help to keep parkrun in New Zealand free for everybody.
