Queenstown parkrun – Event number 102 – 14th November 2020

Queenstown parkrun
Event number 102
14th November 2020

This week 52 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part. We had visitors from across New Zealand.

On an overcast morning the wind picked up just before start time to add another dynamic to our fave weekly 5km event.  First time Run Director Wendy Banks did a great job managing the event under the gusty conditions and we thank her for her contributions to Queenstown parkrun.  Our pacers today helped 11 parkrunners to new PBs today.

Visiting parkrunners Shaun McWhirter and Daniel Redmond strolled to the finish line together and politely decided that Shaun would be first across the line at 18:30.  Daniel crossed shortly after at 18:31 with local runner Marjin Wouters completing his first parkrun to round out the top three at 19:34.

Junior parkrunner Siena Mackley was the first female across the line at 20:38.  The Queenstown Athletic runner earned herself a new PB in the process.  Sarah Jenkins finished her 8th parkrun today crossing second with a new PB of 24:08.  Visiting parkrunner Christine Stowell-Collett was third female at 28:04.
