Queenstown parkrun
Event number 108
26th December 2020

This week 40 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 4 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 4 different clubs took part. We had visitors from Christchurch, Dunedin, Wellington, Nelson, Whakatane, and Auckland!

Today marked the last Queenstown parkrun of 2020 and we had a smaller group of parkrunners than we did yesterday on Christmas Day.  The weather was great again albeit a bit breezy.

Visiting junior parkrunner Liam Dooley was first across the line today in a speedy 17:40.  This was his first time at Queenstown parkrun and only his second parkrun ever.  Local junior parkrunner Jude Deaker came across second with a time of 18:27 earning himself a new PB for his efforts.  Visiting parkrunner Hayden King rounded out the top 3 males with a time of 20:58.

The Dooley family was also represented in the top 3 ladies today as junior parkrunner Kiera Dooley was first across in a time of 23:45.  This was Kiera's first ever parkrun finish and she did it in style!  Queenstown parkrun Run Director and Team Banks member, Wendy Banks was second across at 25:31.  Visiting junior parkrunner Kiara Puche Struben followed Wendy in with a time of 25:43.
