It was wonderful to celebrate volunteers last week leading up to Saturday and many thanks to everyone who sent through pictures, there’s also brilliant pictures on all the event Facebook pages! Whangarei parkrun is featured here enjoying a lovely morning celebrating their volunteers!
“A bit of fun celebrating the many people who volunteer to make parkrun work this morning, with a tutu run and purple for parkrun! I was Tail Walker today so a nice easy walk for me with a good yarn! A massive shout out to everyone who gives up their time to make parkrun work!” – Emma M. Palmerston North
What a beautiful, sunny day we had for East End parkrun #40. Oblivious to the bemused looks of passers by on the walkway, many of our fun loving East Enders turned up in their tutus to celebrate parkrun falling on the 22nd of the month (22nd, two twos, tutus )
A splendid bunch of hardy parkrunners then took part in the inaugural winter solstice post-parkrun plunge. Many were still wearing their tutus as they ran unflinchingly into the ice cold waters of the Tasman Sea. Rather refreshing, maybe we should make it a weekly event!?
We love the many ways that you enjoy your parkrun with us here at the East End, thank you for joining us and we look forward to seeing you next week! - East End parkrun
Beautiful cake from Pegasus’s 3rd anniversary last week!
What beautiful day for celebrating! Our 3rd Birthday, national volunteer week wearing purple, 22nd June – a tutu run and Matariki! So much to celebrate and Alan also celebrated his 100th parkrun, yippee!
It was great to see everyone get into the spirit of things. We had a few tourists which was great to see, we also had a few first timers. It was also lovely to see our enthusiastic home grown parkrunners.
We hope you enjoyed celebrating with us as we did with you. Hope all have a lovely weekend and we will see you back here another time. - Puarenga parkrun
Robyn Richards from Blenheim parkrun has just completed her 100th parkrun! Having reached the milestone, Robyn began to reflect on how parkrun, and the journey parkrunners go on, reflects life. I’m a huge parkrun fan, and recently I realised why. Along with 350 or so others, I was jogging around a 5km course on the island…
On Saturday 2 October 2004, 13 runners and five volunteers turned up to Bushy Park in Teddington, London for a free, timed, 5k run, known then as the Bushy Park Time Trial. Little did they know what they had started. 15 years later, more than four million different people around the world…
