This week 85 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 10 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part. We had visitors from across New Zealand and Australia!!

Today was our junior parkrunner volunteer takeover! The youngsters did an amazing job today and we are very proud of them. Here is a quick recap from Matthew and Joe Murray who were our Run Directors!

"Hi we're Matt and Joe and we had a privilege of being the parkrun directors on the 3rd birthday of Queenstown parkrun. It was great to see Saturday beautiful and warm, but it was windy. It was nice to see how many people showed up, and seeing all the cool LUMA sculptures. Thanks for the cake that Wendy made and all the other baking that was brought to the event."
