A lovely day in the sunshine, albeit a little squelchy underfoot. Emma Fardon and Harry Mitchell became Camperdown's 2nd and 3rd members of the 250 club. There was cake, there were photos, there was merriment, there was the crushing realisation that it will be another 5 years at least until the next t-shirt (500!). There are only 2757 people in THE WORLD who are in the 250 club.
Other Camperdown parkrunners to reach a landmark this week:
Wendy Patterson and Mary O'Connor - 25 times volunteering
Elliot Berghuis - 10 club!!!
Fiona Dutch and David Collison are both at 99 runs, so will get their 100 very soon!
Next week Camperdown parkrun turns 6. Yes, we've been at this game for 6 years. As usual we have a fancy dress theme - this year we're going with Summer Holidays, so it's Hawaiian shirts, bermuda shorts, sunglasses and fancy hats. My children have decided to go with ski jackets - Summer holidays in the Southern Hemisphere, apparently. I suspect they'll boil in their sallopettes.
Here's the official numbers:
This week 153 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 33 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.
