Barry Curtis parkrun
Event number 403
24th July 2021

No rain..... No wind.... Some fog around the edges..... Gorgeous sunshine..... what a lovely morning to parkrun.  And we were joined this week by 127 people who ran, jogged and walked the course at Barry Curtis Park.

Things were relatively quiet this week with no visitors and no milestones to celebrate.  However we did have one lovely new parkrunner out on their first event - Welcome to Barry Curtis parkrun.  We trust you enjoyed your morning run and we look forward to seeing you again.

 In the great conditions, 9 of our number recorded new Personal Bests, with particular note our juniors Emily, Kate and Willow - congratulations on your efforts. .

The event was made possible by 14 volunteers:

Jeremy CROUCHER • Karen ROUT • Ray FREEMAN • Rosalie FREEMAN • Gareth JESS • Cathy WELCH • Tristan NICHOLLS • Ronald LOBJOIT • Keegan KOKKE • Chanpen KANABOOT • Caitlin SHALLARD • Mia FALETANOAI • Andrew SHALLARD • Colin WICHMAN

We are so appreciative of our volunteers, without which this event could not happen.  There were a number of vacancies for the next two weeks, but Ray cleverly stood at the end of the finish chute with the volunteer board and a marker, and miraculously our spaces are filled.  This weeks winners of the Sequel Coffee voucher draw were Jeremy and Colin.

You too can be entered in this weekly draw - entry is very easy. no complicated questions or tests - all you have to do is volunteer.  Either write your name on the board on a Saturday morning or send an email to with the job you would like to do - the roster is available online so you can see what jobs are available - at  Have you volunteered yet - many hands make light work?
