Kia ora koutou! We made it! Apologies for the late post, we ran into some technical issues. Thanks for your patience and enjoy!
Welcome to the run report for invercargill parkruns 44th event!
113 beautiful souls graced us with their presence on this overcast but pleasant December morning! 26 fabulous whānau joined us for the first time! Welcome! And 28 blasted home with their personal bests! Well done!
The event started with a briefing and two milestone presentations being awarded for completing 10 runs, in the junior category. Congratulations to Jayden & Blake Prattley on your fabulous effort and achievements!
We were lucky enough to be joined by parkrunners from Queensland, NSW, Auckland & Dunedin this week. Our Dunedin visitor, Wendy, chose to spend her birthday parkrun with us! Thank you for that and we hope you enjoyed your visit! Safe travels back and Ra Whānau Wendy.

Next week is our TUTU event. Anytime an event falls on the 22nd of a month we like to encourage parkrunners to sport a flamboyant tutu. Christmas wear also welcome. Double points if you find a Christmas themed tutu!
We are holding Invercargill's first Christmas Day parkrun this year. Bring the whānau and spend an hour walking through our beautiful Queens Park. Christmas attire hugely encouraged! Same time, same place.
See you all next week, parkrun briefing at the cricket pavilion in Queens park, 7.50am. Event starts 8am. Join us at the cheeky llama afterward for a gossipy chinwag and a cuppa.
Stay safe out there, please Drive safely and Look after each other!
