Carnival 56 can't stop us! They may have put a fence up over the start/finish line, but camperdown parkrun will endure!
123 parkrunners made it to the finish of today's alternative, alternative, deviated route Camperdown parkrun. It was a bit squeltchy underfoot, but it was certainly a free, timed, 5k run, in a park.
The front runners may have taken an extra deviation route, thanks to Martin, but they found the portaloos, and made it back to the path. The long hill finish through the woods was well received.
I forgot to thank the volunteers in the briefing, so a MASSIVE THANKYOU to all the volunteers today, they make this thing happen, every week, so give them a thankyou.
Results are processed, and they should be with you very soon.
Next week will be another alternative route, keen an eye out for updates on where we'll be starting, as it may be different, again. But it's definitely on! And we're told that we should have a Team GB athlete along as an extra volunteer, at some point..
