Fantastic morning at Invercargill parkrun, stunning course at Queen’s Park. Today was the first runs at Invercargill for both Trent, who has now done 20 different New Zealand courses, and James who is rocketing up the NZ Most Events list with 22 different courses.! Thanks to the fabulous group of volunteers and runners who gave us a wonderful parkrun welcome, next stop Wanaka.
Also our milestone t-shirts arrived early this week so timing was perfect for our South Island visit! – Martin O’Sullivan, Lower Hutt

Thanks to the organisers and volunteers on a well run event. – Martin O’Sullivan
