Thir­teen years of parkrun

Stanthorpe Border Post - - SPORT -

PARKRUN: Stan­thorpe cel­e­brated parkrun’s 13th birth­day like the rest of the world­wide parkrun com­mu­nity on Satur­day.

It was a great turnout again, with 65 keen run­ners par­tic­i­pat­ing.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mar­garet Porter and Robert Duff who have com­pleted 50 parkruns.

Eight first-timers joined the usual parkrun gang.

Wel­come to Paul Miller, David Ca­vanagh, Blake and Karen Mathie, Kathie Miller, Grace Mitch­ener, Bella Ba­ro­nio and Benita

Suck­ling.

Scott Beesley, who was first over the line on Satur­day, nearly cracked his per­sonal best time of 19:35, fin­ish­ing the 5km course in 19:39.

Robert Yates and Jamie Deb­nam crossed the fin­ish line close after Beesley with great times of 19:50 and 19:56 re­spec­tively.

Im­pres­sive times were also achieved by Amanda Gemt­pon, who was the first woman to cross the fin­ish line after 22:15, fol­lowed by Ma­rina Water­worth and Brigid O’Dea.

Per­sonal best times were set by Alun Roberts, Ja­cob Hen­noste, Liam Telfer, Karin Tracey, Jaimee Costanzo and Les­ley Ooster­broek.

As al­ways, a big thank you goes to our vol­un­teers.

This week we would es­pe­cially like to ac­knowl­edge Glenda Ri­ley who al­ways takes amaz­ing pho­tos for Stan­thorpe parkrun that cap­ture the re­lax­ing and fun at­mos­phere we all en­joy so much.

Thank you Glenda, we love your work.
