Race Results

Shirley Gibson was celebrating her 500th parkrun on Saturday at South Park. Thats pretty much 10 years of park-running week on week. This milestone has definitely come later than expected due to Covid stopping parkrun activity for a long spell but an amazing achievement to hit this number, lots of dedication on a Saturday morning.

500 parkrun’s for Shirley

On Saturday at the Cross Country at Akley Heads we had a number of our athletes in action across various age groups. Starting in the U11 boys race it was Ollie Curran first across the line for the club in 3rd place with Daniel Callaghan also finishing well up the pecking order in 7th.

Marissa Boon was our only U20 girl competing finishing 27th despite posting a much superior time to many of the girls from the slower group which would have seen her make the top 15.
