Queenstown parkrun
Event number 133
26th June 2021

This week 50 people braved the rain and soggy conditions to complete the
5k Queenstown Gardens Course, of whom 15 were first timers to the
course plus 5 first time parkrunners!
We welcomed many Australian visitors today from Perth, Sydney and
Queensland. Special mention to the Thornton family celebrating Shelley’s
50th parkrun milestone!
Well done to the following parkrunners for achieving their PBs this morning:
Joe Sutheran, Carl Redpath, Ina Chalmers and Melissa White. It’s so great
to see new faces and returning faces, big shout out to Caroline Lane, Caz
started parkrun in May this year and achieved four consecutive parkrun
personal bests and also to Melissa White with her third PB in a row today!

Local parkrunner Seamus Costello was first to finish with a time of
19:25. He was followed by Nicholas Bentley (St Peters) with a time of 20:25
and Joe Sutheran 20:43. Top female spot went to Dahna Hunter with a
time of 21:52, followed by Wendy Hawkes 23:54 and Ina Chalmers 24:09.
