This week 181 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Of course this couldn't happen without our fantastic volunteers:
Emily SCOTT • Rachael MASTERTON • Neville SHANKS • Nick WOOLISCROFT • Lynne KERR • Hannah SCOTT • Corinna FLAWN • Laura SCOTT • Kathy MCKENDRY • Logan GRAY
We also had one of parkrun's Event Ambassadors visiting us for the first time and here's his impression of Dunedin parkrun
What a fantastic event the South Islands original parkrun is! I’m talking about Dunedin parkrun of course! It’s taken me until my 220th finish to arrive here and the wait has been worth it.
A friendly, encouraging and enthusiastic group of volunteers, ably led by ED Tania and today’s RD Nick - self supporting parkrunners and parkwalkers - a picturesque course through the Botanic Gardens and of course, The Stairs of Despair!
I thoroughly enjoyed my First Timer at Dunedin as did Caren, great to see other First Timers at the briefing and also First Time Visitors like ourselves.
Next time we are here we won’t arrange to be in another town by a particular time.
Looking forward to our 2nd run with Dunedin parkrunners already (& hopefully I won’t be in broken condition next time)
