Eleanore has done all her runs at Porirua and she is certainly a wonderful asset to have in the community there. She must also be very valuable when pacing with her faithful dog, Sox! Eleanore is running in red above with Astrid (ED of Porirua parkrun)

Porirua: Both Eleanore and Sox volunteer. Eleanore is always ready with a smile and one of our core parkrunners. She belongs to the Olympic Harriers and is often one of the pace-runners when Porirua has a pacer day. Sox is great for achieving PB’s. You just tie the dog’s leash around your waist and lift your feet. She pulls equally hard going uphill as on the way down back to the finish.
One thing I love about parkrun is: the social aspect of meeting with other people, so does Sox. Sox can get really excited at the start and barks to encourage the run-director to yap faster.
Porirua: Eleanore is fantastic at encouraging people and it is lovely to see her smiling face at parkrun.
My most memorable parkrun moment was: When I achieved my PB of 24:56:00 on 20 May 2017.
