Wet weather doesn’t stop Air­lie parkrun

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.
