68 x 2-legged runners, nine volunteers and six 4-legged runners were greeted with glorious weather at the 112th Greytown Woodside Trail parkrun.
Congratulations to newlywed Aucklander Dion O’Neale, who stole the show with another first placing in 18:19.
Likewise congratulations to Lilla Csorgo for her first place in 23:16 (her 15th first pacing at Greytown Woodside from 19 starts!).
And well done to our Age Grade percentage winner this week, Marcia Hunter with 78.06%
Chris Mead, Kim Gourlay, Alison Payne and Heather Haines all capitalised on the windless conditions to snatch a PB. Well done!
We had nine Greytown Woodside Trail first timers, including three who chose our trail as their very first parkrun. Welcome. (Our first timers represented just 1.6% of the 190 first timers across NZ on Saturday).
One of the big attractions to many parkrunners are the statistics, so here are a few more:
Combined, our 68 runners have completed a total of 3,044 parkruns between them. Impressive!
The average time at event #112 was 33:26. This is slightly higher than the national average of 30:58. Remember, whether you complete parkrun in 17 minutes, or 68 minutes, you have both done 5km!
Of the 67 named runners this week, the most common first name initial was M with 8 people, followed by A with 6 people.
Thank you for attending and putting another 5km into your health bank.
Thank you also to our team of volunteers who make the event possible.
