My name is Tia and I’m a Bathurst parkdog.
I’ve been doing parkrun for a long time with my peoples and I love to run with them. I get very excited at the start so I bark for about 5 mins before we run. I bark through any speeches and bark when anyone claps.l love a good bark…and these parkrunning people are so nice to me.
I’m a good runner for the first half (I like to… lead the way!! woof woof) but I tend to pull back in the last half of the run. I do this so my person gets a rest. He must like it because he says “Thanks very much you furry anchor “…whatever that means.
My best time is 23mins. parkrun is my favourite time of the week. Rain or sun, my fur gets frosty on a Bathurst minus 4 morning!
All dogs should go to parkrun, you’re barking mad if you don’t!
