Gedling junior parkrun 14th May 2017

This week's run report is courtesy of Will, one of our junior runners. If a junior would like to write the run report just let the run director know. Maybe it could count towards homework or a badge for brownies, cubs etc? We just need the text as an email and then we add the photos and publish it. It's as simple as that! So here is Will and his run report. Thanks Will!

To start with I want to say a big thank you to all the volunteers for
making sure junior parkrun happened on Sunday, and while thanking them I
want to put a request out to everyone who comes and watches to have a go
at volunteering if you haven't already because it is really easy and
lots of fun.

It was really sunny on Sunday morning and there were lots of juniors
ready to have a good run at 9am. After a fun warm up, we started off and
although it isn't a race a few of us battled it out from the start to
the end to see how well we could do. Junior parkrun appeals to lots of
different people and you can come along to walk, skip, hop or run it.
Everyone is welcome.

It was only my second time at Gedling junior parkrun. It's certainly one
of the harder ones, but it's also one of my favourites and I can't wait
to come back soon.

There were a few milestone runners and even one ultra marathon runner.
The junior parkrun milestones are 11 (a half marathon), 21 (a marathon)
and 50 (an ultra marathon), you get a new wristband for each milestone.
Tegan got her ultra marathon band this week. Well done Tegan.
