104 People Participate In Parkrun

Another successful parkrun took place at the Airlie Beach waterfront on January 21st, with 104 participants running, jogging, and walking the 5km course.

Of those, 22 were first-time parkrunners and 8 completed their very first parkrun. Five participants even recorded new personal bests, with Jarrod, Craig, Jessie, Krystal, and Brett leading the way.

Aidan also celebrated his 25th parkrun, and Su was recognised for her 50 weeks of volunteering.

Every Saturday, parkrunners meet at 6:50am for a briefing at area D, Coral Sea Marina, with free parking available in the lower carpark until 9:30am for those displaying a parkrun barcode on their dashboard. After the run, participants gather for coffee and conversation at Bohemian Raw and Berry and Maple Patisserie.
