Event report #121

A typical Wairarapa frosty winter's morning

As we all know when you run, walk, or jog a parkrun at this time of year, eventually you’ll
warm up. You’ve got to feel for the volunteers standing around waiting for us to finish our
5kms. Thanks for wrapping up warm and greeting us with a welcoming smile as we crossed the finish line one by one.

We soon warmed up with a hot drink and some food at The Offering. As we chatted post
parkrun I was very pleased to learn from Dave that Greytown Woodside Trail parkrun now
has in its position a defibrillator, thanks to our friends at Invercargill parkrun.


John WYETH ran his first ever parkrun on Saturday. Hopefully, this is just the start of a long and happy parkrun journey.

We also welcomed Leigh SOLOMON and Luke SOLOMON, who visited Greytown Woodside Trail this week for the first time. We hope you enjoyed your run and your visit to Greytown’s Festival of Christmas afterwards.

6 New Personal Bests

Of the 38 finishers on Saturday 6 bettered their previous times and set themselves a new PB. Congratulations to Ali LANG, Chris MEAD, Dylan WALKER, Melissa MEAD, Rebecca EDGECOMBE and Sian LEAN.
