Barry Curtis parkrun
Event number 428
6th August 2022
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.
16 people recorded new Personal Bests. Congratulations to you all and special mention to our juniors with new PBs; Harrison, Matthew, Josiah, Amelia, Sophia and Annamae.
