Forty nine parkrunners enjoyed a perfect Saturday morning which saw First Timer Greg Taylor come home in a time of 18:35. In all there were eleven first timers enjoying the run. The morning also saw ten new PB's What a fantastic pacer parkrun we had Congratulations to those who managed a PB on the Batemans Bay course: Harry Clark Kayne Carmichael Kellie Grubb Karmen Ison Christopher Lamb Samantha Tibbles Jaxon Davey Tony Dawe Abbey Clark and Judi Jamieson. A big thank you to Eurocoast Athletics Club for providing some of their members as pacers last Saturday - Rhys Flood, Harrison Gilligan, Jo Flood, Vaughn Gilligan and Brock Gilligan. And to parkrun regulars Deb Livermore and Stephen Phipps for making up our pacer numbers. They all did a fantastic job but special mention to Brock for being the closest to his assigned time - only 1 second out - and entertaining us with a delaying dance before the finish line. Wish we had a photo of that!!
