Happy New Year from all of us at Depot Park parkrun!! Join us in our special New Year's Day parkrun at 10 am tomorrow. A great way to start your new year and perhaps a resolution to do a 5k every Saturday!!
Set goals, achieve results and repeat.
For the past 15 months we, as a community, have worked hard together to grow and share this wonderful weekly event with our friends, family, tourists, volunteers and all who come out on a Saturday morning to exercise. My wish for 2020 is that it continues to grow and makes its mark in Gainesville as a consistent venue for people of all ages and abilities to have the opportunity to do a free, timed 5k each weekend, make new friends and meet tourists from all over the world who frequently join us.
As Event Director and founder of your parkrun, I wanted to use this platform to let you know that the new year will be bringing many changes for me personally, one of them being an amazing opportunity to pursue a new career out west. With this comes the reality that I will be leaving Depot Park parkrun, but with every intention of starting another one, should I be lucky enough to find a location as perfect as the one we have here in Gainesville.
You are in good hands with Kristen Bryant, who has served as the CO-ED for months already. She is every bit as passionate about parkrun as I am. Please reach out to her and lend a helping hand whenever you can. Without our volunteers (you), we could not have parkrun, and I would never have had the pleasure of meeting you and all of the wonderful people who have made Saturday mornings extra special week after week because of parkrun.
I am full of parkrun pride as I wish you a very happy and healthy new year and lots of parkrunning/walking in 2020 and beyond.
