Barry Curtis parkrun
Event number 406
14th August 2021

The sun was out this week, making conditions a bit warmer, after the wet and cold of the past week.  We have a great community of people at Barry Curtis parkrun, and it is always nice to catch up with parkrun friends each week.

This week 132 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 8 were first timers, including three who came out for their first event ever - well done and we looking forward to seeing you next week!  We celebrated a 200 milestone for Shaun this week - great effort - we trust the balloon didn't slow you down too much!

Conditions were great today and 17 parkrunners recorded new Personal Bests - including juniors James, Timothy, James and Edward, and at the other end of the scale, one of our over 70's, Victor.  Well done to your all on your personal parkrun journey.

The event was made possible by 16 wonderful volunteers:

Chris WHITELEY • Jeremy CROUCHER • Carl HARDLEY-ROUT • Peter ROUT • Karen ROUT • Brian KWOK • Grant LINCOLN • Ray FREEMAN • Rosalie FREEMAN • Ronald LOBJOIT • Keegan KOKKE • Caitlin SHALLARD • Andrew SHALLARD • Siapo AUVAE • Delwyn SMEDLEY • Willi BRYANT

This weeks recipients of the Sequel Cafe coffee vouchers were Siapo and Willi.  You too can be in the draw for a free coffee - simply sign up as a volunteer for one of the upcoming weeks.  If you missed seeing the volunteer board at our event, you can check out the roster online to see where the gaps are and send us an email.  Many hands make light work - and by all accounts this weeks volunteers were having a great time.  And as volunteer coordinator, Ray, has told us on many occasions - volunteering gives you a warm glow inside!  Give it a go.....

And some special acknowledgements.  A big thank you to Sequel Cafe for their warm welcome to us each week - great coffee, great food and lovely staff.  Come and join in the post event camaraderie.  And another big thank you to parkrun NZ sponsor 'The Athlete's Foot' for supporting this event.  Are you in need of some new footwear?  Go and see the team at Botany Town Centre and they will look after you.
