Perrigo parkrun #11 report


What a great morning at Perrigo parkrun. I think for the first time ever we had no visitors, but we had 55 of our local gang (13 of whom were first timers) come out to enjoy the glorious sunshine! Well done to everyone. It so gratifying to see so many people come back each week and personally come up to me to say what a great event Perrigo parkrun is. I know I’ve said it before, but the real sense of community is growing and growing each week, and you can really see and feel the friendships forming.


We had 13 personal bests today, so major kudos to all of you who snatched a PB!



7 amazing volunteers made parkrun #11 happen today. Thank you so much to Mary Blake, Shawn Pearce, David Seber, Melani McGrath, Nina Tang, Carlos Figueira and Premalatha Grandhi! We need 7-10 volunteers every Saturday, and we are so lucky at Perrigo parkrun to have so many fantastic volunteers step up to the plate. We have alot of repeat volunteers, which just goes to show how awesome volunteering is! You will want to do it again and again! If you haven't volunteered yet and would like to give it a try, please just shoot us an email at, or reach out on our facebook page "Perrigo parkrun". We also have a sign up sheet at parkrun every Saturday.


Till next week parkrunners! Get a great start to your labor day weekend with a free 5K!

Yours in stride,
