Yet another enjoyable junior parkrun with lots of smiley faces and bouncy feet! We welcomed 70 juniors and their parents/carers to the hills of Gedling Country Park. There were 4 first timers to Gedling and 3 of you were completely new to junior parkrun. We hope to see you again soon!
It does not matter how fast or how slow you are at junior parkrun it really is the taking part that counts, enjoying the experience, getting some exercise, fresh air and socialising with the local community. We now have the added bonus of the cafe being open so there is the option of breakfast or ice cream after you have ran!
14 of you must have had your weetabix on Sunday morning (other breakfast cereals are available) as you managed to achieve a personal best! We were also able to hand out half marathon wristbands (11 junior parkruns) to Chen, Holly and Finlay. Well done! Don't forget you can get a wristband for 11 (half marathon), 21 (marathon) and 50 (ultra marathon) junior parkruns. You can also go on your profile on the parkrun website to print a certificate for your milestones.
Of course we always love to say a big thank you to our amazing volunteers. This week we had Nicola and Jack timekeeping, Naomi and Jonathan scanning the barcodes, Orla and Sean on the funnel, Olivia and Fleur tail running and Evie helping with the warm up. Marshalling the mountains were Roger, Wayne, Tabitha, Andy, Peter, Peter, Ian, Ian, Sam and Nicola and Helen was your run director.
We would love to be able to get a full roster of volunteers prior to each week. It would be great if you could consider helping us out. Lots of juniors love volunteering too! Please let Olivia, our volunteer coordinator know if you can help via email, facebook or see the run director. Your help would be greatly appreciated!
That's all for now! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
