Community run marks birthday
Superheroes of all sizes and colours will be charging through Cobram’s parklands on Saturday morning as Cobram parkrun celebrates its first birthday.
Cobram parkrun began on July 2 last year, with events running each Saturday morning — although there was a short hiatus late last year due to the Murray River flooding.
Since then, more than 691 people have completed more than 2427 parkruns, covering a distance of more than 12 135 km.
Participants have recorded more than 560 personal best times.
People are being encouraged to dress up in the superhero theme and join the festivities, with a cake being made by Cafe 3641 and donated by the Kelly family.
parkrun is a free event held every Saturday morning, where people walk or run a 5 km course around Quinn Island, starting from Thompsons Beach at 7.50 am.
The female record is held by Brooke Williams, who recorded a time of 00:19:43 on July 9, 2016 (event number two), and also recorded a time of 00:19:43 on July 16, 2016 (event number three).
The male record is held by Graham Bergroth who recorded a time of 00:17:35 on December 10 (event number 12). The age grade course record is held by Stacey Van Deuren who recorded 87.14 per cent (21:39) on December 31 (event number 15).
