While in Australia in January, AVRs Carol Austin and Lesley Adams took part in four Parkruns each, ‘down under’, writes Dave Mutter.

There are hundreds of Parkruns worldwide so anyone who has registered can run and take part in some Parkrun tourism!

Lesley was pleased and surprised to be first lady W60-64 home on all four occasions. Carol finished first in the W50-54 age group twice at the Rhodes parkrun, located in Sydney Olympic Park, in a grade of 76 per cent.

Up the coast at Fingal Bay she was second woman home to another W50-54! At Cooks River the temperature hit 35 degrees even at 8am so a fast time for Brits was out of the question - even the locals struggled in that heat.

Lesley and Carol were back volunteering in the cooler temperatures at Seaton this weekend.
