Event 278 — 17 October 2020

Another great turnout, with a 114 of you out there, giving it your all. Congratulations to Poppy with yet another PB this week and due to her age, will only get faster. Would be great to see a local female hold the Parkrun record for Kapiti again.

As the longer, warmer days arrive, we tend to get a bit more adventurous with our runs and hikes, venturing further a field. Would like to give all our folk a timely reminder to stay safe and preferably to partner up with someone else. If the destination is remote, always let someone back home know your intentions. Go prepared for a change in the weather, our climate (particularly in the hills), can change very quickly. Take water, snacks and first aid. Most of all, enjoy.

Parkrun is a great, safe way to start out running and a great way to meet others to partner up with for something more adventurous. Perhaps training for your first 10k or something even bigger. No matter what it is, have fun.

A big thanks to all our volunteers this week. Have a great week everyone and don't forget to put your name down on the volunteer list, from time to time.
