Well after last week's torrential rain and miserable conditions, it could only have been better really, but we were blessed with a lovely crisp and bright morning for parkrun this week. And what a great turnout we had too. There were 22 new parkrunners welcomed into the family this week. Its great to see so many new people coming along each week, and we really hope you enjoy your run and come back again. Although hopefully we won't have everyone along on the same morning - we now have 2263 runners registered with Camperdown as their home run!
This week, Brian Middleton joined the 100 Club - a massive acheivement so well done from all the Camperdown team! Your new tshirt will be on its way soon.
We are starting to get into our winter running conditions in Camperdown. For those of you who haven't run with us over a year yet, this can mean frost, ice, mud and snow - its great fun! But it does mean that you are better off with some good off-road trail shoes. If you don't have a pair yet, why not visit Sweatshop and see what they have? A pair of shoes with good grips, will make you feel much safer when running in the park.
