It’s amazing walking into a park in the middle of a suburban district away from the traffic. The hills and the trees seem to remove any sign of the city. Just a bunch of runners and walkers in day glow colours to brighten up the landscape.
It’s the tutu parkrun challenge today for the 22nd of September at Bothamley Park. Many runners and walkers have turned up in this fun costume. Sparkly dots are in fashion, yellow, green, red, blue, purple, and even black can be seen at the start.

Dunedin parkrun also got into the ‘tutu’ fun!
