Queenstown parkrun – Event number 131 – 12th June 2021

Queenstown parkrun
Event number 131
12th June 2021

This week 46 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 6 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 4 different clubs took part. We had visitors from across New Zealand and from Australia!

Unfortunately due to unforeseen council works that we were not notified of, we had to adjust the course at the last possible minute.  As a result, the course was approximately 300m shot and we adjusted our participants' time to ensure there are no highly abnormal PBs as a result of today.  The event team apologises for this unforeseen issue and we will take action to ensure a full 5km course next week.

Well done to debutante Run Director, Dani Moynes, who did a fantastic job today. Dani's enthusiasm for parkrun is infectious and we appreciate all of her support!

Top three across the line today were Luke Hammington, Chris Seymour, and Sara Metzger.  Rounding out the top three males was Hamish Burrow and the top three females was Wendy Hawkes and Wendy Zhu!

The event was made possible by 11 volunteers:

Carmella BURY • Dani MOYNES • Chris SEYMOUR • Dave PEARSON • Jamie SEYMOUR • Charlie GERARD • Joel GERARD • Elizabeth TREVATHAN • Brodie BANKS • Michelle MOYNES • Shelley CHARLTON
