We were all up before the sun this morning, on what was the shortest parkrun day, but what a beautiful sunrise it was. The colourful sky seemed to fit our ‘purple for parkrun’ theme perfectly! It was also great to see so many of our participants don purple including a number of Volunteer Club t-shirts.
278 people ran, jogged and walked the course, on what was a fairly crisp Christchurch morning. 26 of whom were first timers and a staggering 51 people recorded new Personal Bests. Congratulations!
Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.
One of our junior runners joined the Junior 10 Club and set himself a new PB, well done Finn! Jason Shaskey, Vaughan Morrison and Bartosz Morawiec all completed their 50th milestone today. It was great to see these milestones celebrated, we all especially enjoyed the pyrotechnics!
Today we recognised National Volunteer Week and all of the wonderful volunteers around New Zealand.
