Run Report- parkrun #80 – June 1, 2019

It was an exciting start to the weekend for Imogen, who reached her 10 milestone! Younger sister Amelia earned hers a few weeks ago so soon the sisters will be sporting matching parkrun youth 10 shirts.

Thanks to Event Director Cam for baking and decorating some sweet treats to help celebrate the milestone.

Our next youth 10 shirt earner will likely be Akhil, who ran his 8th parkrun today. We look forward to celebrating you, Akhil!

Max and Phil paced on each other during the run and Phil earned a PB! Both needed to take a moment to catch their breath before picking up their finish tokens.

Two of our first-timers were walkers, Diane from Piggly Wiggly parkrun in Australia, who brought along her son David who is local.

Erika and Casey, regular parkrunners at neighboring Des Moines Creek parkrun, visited Renton this week to share about the local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event coming up near the end of June. Erika (in the blue shirt) brought along friend and cancer survivor and first time parkrunner John to enjoy the 5K.
