A Milestone Morning With Mackay parkrun

The cool clear morning provided perfect running conditions for Event #386. The Mackay parkrun event saw a fantastic turnout with 291 participants, including many first-timers and visitors.

Highlights of Saturday's event included celebrating several milestones for Elaine McFarlane, Russell Leeson, and Ashley Miles who achieved their 100th finish milestones. Michael Zivkovic reached his 50th finish milestone. Weslan Hawkins completed his 10th Junior finish milestone and Michael Vella accomplished an impressive 250 finishes.

Underneath a Mackay parkrun Facebook post was a heart-warming comment left from a visiting tourist that said “Thanks Mackay parkrun for such a welcoming, friendly Saturday morning run for us visiting tourists – and we did an overall PB for this year, out of over 20 different locations. Loved the course in the Gardens too.”

The event wouldn't have been possible without the dedicated efforts of volunteers, to whom the team extends their heartfelt thank you to.

Congratulations to Michael Vella who achieved an impressive milestone with his 250th finish, while Elaine McFarlane, Russell Leeson and Ashley Miles celebrated reaching their 100th parkrun milestones. Photo credit: Mackay parkrun (Facebook)
