It was a very wet morning for some events around the country last Saturday, but spare a thought for our parkrun friends in Russia going into their winter! The temperature was -31.2°C at parkrun Якутск Дохсун in east Siberia on Saturday!
Hamilton Lake had a junior volunteer day last Saturday, which was very well managed by Taylor and her great little team! (pictured above)

This week’s beautiful, furry friend comes from Whangarei in the winterless north! This is Charlie. Charlie loves parkrun. Charlie has run 56 parkruns in Whangarei. Charlie wants to know where her “50” T shirt is so she can be just like Bonnie. That’s Bonnie on her right. She always follows Charlie around the course. Whangarei…
