Wet weather doesn’t stop Airlie parkrun
PARKRUN: It wasn’t the bright, sunny conditions Airlie Beach parkrunners are used to, but that didn’t stop a determined team of 62 from pounding the pavement for the 164th event.
Five first timers were christened into the fold as they took to the 5km loop across the boardwalk from Airlie Beach to Cannonvale and back.
Congratulations to Bradley Williamson, Suzi Bellert, Tyler Greenhill and Nathan Dickin who achieved personal bests on the weekend.
Airlie Beach parkrunner Suzie Bellert hit her 50th milestone on Saturday and Margaret Coote was congratulated for making her 100th milestone last week.
Thank you to volunteers Stuart Allwright, Bob Barford, Craig Boxer, Margaret Coote, Vanessa Corbett, Matthew Curr, Joshua King, Justin Knight-Gray who made parkrun possible this week.
Airlie Beach parkrun is held every Saturday, 7am, from Abell Point Marina, Shingley Dr. Parkrun is free, but first-time participants should register before attending.
Participants are invited to mingle with the parkrun community for a coffee at New Bohemian Raw Cafe after each event.
Airlie Beach parkrun will be held on Christmas and New Year’s Day at the usual time and location.
More information can be found on the Airlie Beach parkrun website and Facebook page or phone event director Bob Barford on 0407 895 011.
GOOD TIME: Not even the wet weather spoiled last Saturday’s Airlie Beach parkrun due to the efforts of these volunteers.
