Conditions & Participants
We enjoyed a sunny but cold morning for TCG #99. We had 20 parkrunners come out, which is a January attendance record for us. Of these, four were tourists visiting from other parkruns. Julie and Barton were visiting from Durham NC parkrun. Our co-event director, Meredith, used to participate in this parkrun while she was in graduate school and enjoyed connecting again with them. Julie founded Durham NC parkrun and has directed it since 2013. Linda and Nathan also visited us, having been part of Weedon Island Preserve parkrun and Bargara parkrun. Thanks to all for making the trip! Additionally, this week we had two first-time parkrunners. Welcome to Ryan and Haley! We’re so glad you joined us and we hope to see you again in future weeks.
Coincidentally, our first timers were our first two finishers across the line. Ryan ran a 24:10 and Haley ran a 24:48. Nice job to both!
Complete results from this week’s parkrun can be found here. If you have never been to a parkrun but are considering it, give us a try. All you need to do is register for a personalized barcode and be sure to bring a copy (digital or printed) along with you. And don’t worry, registration is free and always will be!
Volunteer Call & Appreciation
Thanks to all of our volunteers who made this week’s parkrun possible - Christopher, David, Earl, Meredith, and Savannah. Earl graciously agreed to help despite the fact that his next parkrun out will be a milestone. Savannah also stepped forward to help us fill potential gaps. If you’d like to volunteer at a future event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can always use more volunteers and will make sure you find a role that’s fun for you. See our future volunteer roster or our spreadsheet to help us fill in our gaps.
We are back next week at 9am! Don’t forget to register and don’t forget your barcode . . .
Since launching on October 26 2019, Third Creek Greenway parkrun has had 319 individual finishers and 58 individuals volunteering.
Note that this upcoming Saturday will be our 100th event. Depending on weather, we plan to have a breakfast potluck at Meredith’s house, which is near the West Hills Elementary, after parkrun. An address will be shared on Saturday. Feel free to bring anything you’d like to share. Some items to consider include coffee and vegetarian friendly foods.
