Event Report #124

In a week, where I am sure we have all been motivated by the NZ Team at the Tokyo Olympics, I think a few of our regulars may have slept in today, after some late nights!! We still managed a good turnout, with 35 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this morning.

These chilly mornings are taking a bit of getting used to, for those of us who have moved back from Queensland. But it’s not hard to get out of bed when you arrive and get a friendly welcome, from one of our parkrun family.

One of our regulars, Sheila, used this week's parkrun to complete a 425km walk - the equivalent of the refugee path from Afghanistan to Pakistan - in support of the Red Cross.


If anyone would like to know more about Sheila's journey, please follow this link. Well done Sheila!!

First Timers

We had five new parkrunners today. Welcome! We hope this is the first of many at Woodside:

Ben and Julie did particularly well on their first parkrun with Julie achieving "first lady" and Ben coming first overall.


It's also interesting to note that this is our first event in which both first- and second-placed finishers beat the train!  Congratulations, guys!


New Personnel Bests

Pleased to see the wet, chilly conditions a few weeks ago for your first parkrun, have not put you off, Rachel.

And congratulations, Kim on achieving a new PB and still having the energy to prepare this great write-up!
