Into three figures… Run report #14

We hit a major milestone at event number 14 last Saturday as first-timers Carlene and Casey became the 100th and 101st individuals to walk, run or jog 5k on Third Creek Greenway!

Event 14 2020-01-25

Carlene and Casey were our only two first timers this week. With cold winds blowing down the greenway, it was 10 hardy souls who made it out.

Finishing first was David (and ‘barkrunner’ Scout) with incredible support from Max to help pace him to an extremely consistent time. Great to see the parkrun community spirit in action with runners supporting each other to progress. 

There were personal bests for Nancy and for your regular report writer Joe, who wishes he’d slowed down a bit rather than knock nearly 50 seconds off in one huge leap...

A massive thanks to our volunteers this week, especially Kirk and Diane as our joint tail walkers - keeping each other company and cheering on fellow participants. 

All the 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.

A number of our usual team are unavailable for our events on February 1st and February 8th so we’d love to hear from you if you can help out on those dates. Please email
