Where were you when the volunteers went all crazy on our first themed run/walk at Imbuko ? A overcast morning kept a few of the runners in bed, or could it be the late night after watching our Boks play it out for third place ? Thank you one and all out there and a special thanks to the Volunteers for your efforts.... Well done to Lynda Palmer on a great run and showing her awesome support to Wellington parkrun...
