Should it be this humid in January? … Run report #12

The surprisingly warm temperatures for mid-January were the main topic of conversation as participants and volunteers lined up for the 12th parkrun on Third Creek Greenway.  

Event 011420

The majority of our runners this week were returners, with just one first-timer - welcome to parkrun Sarah! We hope you enjoyed your first free, weekly timed 5k running with regular Rebecca and ‘barkrunner’ Pepper.

Ron was first across the line for the second time at his second run with us. Showing incredible consistency, he’s recorded 18:38 and 18:39 on our course!

Ask what you can do for your parkrun...

A huge thank you to our volunteers this week, especially Nancy who parkrun volunteered for the first time!

Each week we need 4-5 volunteers to help us run the event safely and record participants’ times and finish positions. Volunteer roles at Third Creek Greenway parkrun are easy, fun, and don’t require a lengthy commitment. You’ll get a briefing about roles at 8:45am and be on site until the tail walker has crossed the line.

If you’d like to volunteer at a future event please email
