Some of the volunteers who helped out at Saturday’s parkrun event in Bowral. Photos supplied Amelia and her dad Al Carpenter run together on Saturday.
PERFECT running conditions greeted the 62 runners and walkers at the Bowral Parkrun event on Saturday.
The ideal conditions led to 60 per cent of finishers achieving a personal best time.
It was terrific to welcome five first timers to the Bowral run, along with parkrun tourists from Penrith, Campbelltown and Menai.
David Watson continued his winning streak in a time of 18 minutes and 42 seconds.
It was his fifth record in a row and beat his previous personal best by seven seconds.
Zara Steffensen, one of the junior runners (11 to 14 years), was the first female across the finish line with a personal best time of 24 minutes and 12 seconds.
Zara was the field across the finish line in the field overall.
In 10th position overall, and second female, was another junior (10 years and under division), Amelia Carpenter.
Amelia finished in a time of 24 minutes and 15 seconds and also achieved a personal best time.
Bowral Parkrun relies on at least five volunteers each week to run.
This week, organisers had a happy crowd of volunteers and they appreciated the efforts of Christine, John, Jenny, Megan, Maeve, Louie, Caroline, and Natasha.
Thanks also to The Briars which allow parkrun organisers to use its grounds each week.
Parkrun is a free, timed 5km run and walk every Saturday at 8am at The Briars.
