600 parkruns! This week we celebrated a very special milestone. Steve Darby ran his 600th parkrun. We had cake and speeches and visitors to cheer him on and he even managed to get his best time since his cancer diagnosis in September last year. Congratulations Steve! There will be another special ‘Steve Darby’ report posted in the News section of our website soon, and keep an eye out on our Facebook page for photos of the day and an inspiring and interesting interview with Steve.

This week 158 people ran, jogged and walked the course. Conditions were foggy, but thankfully the course has started to dry out. We had lots of visitors and first timers, including people from South Australia, Sherwood Reserve, Manchester, Hobsonville Point, Millwater, Brisbane, Sydney, Hamilton Lakes, Foster, Queensland and Lower Hutt.  Of our first timers, there were 9 people who completed their very first parkrun. We hope you all enjoyed your time with us.

25th June 2022

This week 110 people ran, jogged and walked the course. Considering we’re at the end of June already and we’ve had some very heavy rain lately, the course is holding up pretty well this year.

We welcomed 16 first timers this week, including 6 people who were at their very first parkrun. We also welcomed visitors from Melbourne, Cambridge and Blenheim. We hope you all enjoyed your time with us.

Ten people managed Personal Bests this week. Congratulations to you all, and special mention to Grace, one of our juniors, on you PB.

Peter ROUT • Karen ROUT • Kate PATTINSON • Grant LINCOLN • Ronald LOBJOIT • Matt KENRICK • Chanpen KANABOOT • Lana LOBJOIT • Maria SHALLARD • Rebekah SHALLARD • Andrew SHALLARD • Jordan LOBJOIT • Colin WICHMAN • Tania KOKKE • Jerome KLOEG • Tony MEEHAN

Thank you to you all for helping to make our event run so smoothly. Thank you too, to Sequel Café for providing us with coffee vouchers to give to a couple of volunteers each week. This week, two of our junior helpers were the recipients; Lana and Hannah.

Congratulations to those who achieved milestones; Laurie (100), Juliet (100), and Caitlin (50). Thank you to Laurie for bringing a delicious cake along! Congratulations too to Hayes on achieving a milestone birthday – 30 years young.

Finally, the ‘above and beyond’ award goes to Ray and Ronald. One of our regulars lost their keys, so these two valiant men went in search of them. They were gone for quite some time, when one of our visitors, who had gone to the café for a coffee, realised that she had some keys in her pocket that didn’t belong to her. Turns out that she had the exact same jacket as our keyless guy, just a slightly different size, and had mistakenly picked up his jacket at the finish line. Ray and Ronald got the bonus of a couple of extra kilometres of exercise and were relieved that their needle in a haystack search was over!

Another gorgeous autumn day with great conditions for getting some morning exercise. This morning we had 156 people run, jog or walk the course.

Six of those first timers finished in our top ten finishers today. Special mention should go to Christian, our first finisher, who set a blistering pace and claimed our age graded record (86.45%) and was just 22 seconds off our course record. Amazing!

It was great to be able to welcome some visitors from Cornwall Park and Napier today. Thank you for coming.
