Invercargill parkrun Event number 164 31st July 2021

TheWeather Slab

After a forecast suggesting a fine but cloudy morning, it was a surprise to be setting up for parkrun this morning in misty and reasonably wet conditions.  It was wonderful to see all the parkrunners who joined us despite the weather!

We are here every week, and it definitely helps the volunteers knowing that we have many other parkrunners, walkers and joggers with us on the course.

This week 95 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 5 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:

Liz HENRY • Alexandra HENRY • Amy IVERSEN • Aimee WITHINGTON • Cindy MULROONEY • Sandra SWENSSON • Craig SWENSSON • Cheryl DAHMS • Robyn SMITH • Barry SMITH • Brendon CORBETT • Kim HARTLEY • Melanie RYDING • Helen BRUNNER • Cam NELSON • Mackenzie VAUGHAN

The volunteer board is looking quite bare.  Can you help us out?

Here is how the board is looking at the moment:
