Kia Ora team! You have entered the last leap day parkrun until 2048. Congratulations to 163 parkrunners who joined us today and celebrated their sunny extra day, in style, with great company and a casual walk, jog or run through our 5km park.
Firstly, I would like to acknowledge the absolutely AMAZING feedback we received about our parkrun course and our parkrun community from our many many visitors today! Thank you all for joining us and thank you for your feedback!
We had Fleur from Queenstown join us today! Welcome, have a safe trip home and thank you for your beautiful feedback. We also got to welcome friends from Wanaka, Lower Hutt, Brisbane, Ireland, many parkrun friends from around the UK including Craig from chesterfield and Belinda & Ruben from London!
The weather was astounding, with a warm sun drying the grounds and warming our 18 fabulous volunteers up as they each assisted, directed or cheered on our parkrunners.

Ross HENRY • Liz HENRY • Denise HARE • Ruth PRATTLEY • Regan PRATTLEY • Sarah BIGGERSTAFF • Mel LEMM • Peter BIGGERSTAFF • Aimee WITHINGTON • Aaron THOMPSON • Cheryl DAHMS • Robyn SMITH • Euan KENNEDY • Samantha LEMM • Katrina MCGILLAN • Bruce HARTLEY • Tobias PRATTLEY • Leon HARTNETT
I super appreciate the many fine folk whom allowed me to gently nag them into volunteering over the next few weeks today. However, many spaces still need filled and many more of your wonderful souls are still required to marshal, timekeep, scan, photograph and hand out our finish tokens to our finishers.
ALL of these positions are super simple and we always make sure you understand your role before you partake.
Please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Facebook to let us know when you can help please.
15 of our finishers were first timers to Invercargill parkrun! Welcome and we hope you enjoyed your time here. Safe travels to those who visited and will be travelling home.
PERSONAL BESTS were achieved by the following 33 savvy souls.
Congratulations to our first female finisher today, Samantha POTTER!
