Good evening team Invercargill parkrun! And welcome to the worlds southernmost run report!
What an absolutely amazingly admirable event we had today! 143 inspiring souls joined us to run, walk or jog our 5km, beautifyingly blissful 85th event this super spring morn.
We welcomed parkrunners from Dunedin today! Thank you for joining us! 18 of our awesome members achieved their personal best today! High five guys and gals!
Welcome also to our 15 first timers, we hope you enjoyed it and will see you again next week.
I'd like to take a minute to give a big chest-bump, mid-air-high-five to our 21 positively positive peeps that volunteered their time for us today. Because of these guys and gals, we are able to continue to keep parkrun going. Thank you!
