Event 68 – 20th August 2017

At 0855 on Sunday morning we had about 5 juniors lining up for Gedling junior parkrun but then as if by magic at 0900 the magic of the playground ended and we had 27 fantastic runners at Gedling junior parkrun.

There may have only been 27 runners, with lots of people being on holidays, but that did not stop 6 of you recording a personal best so well done to Jack, Phoebe, Noah, Harriett, Mia and Henry!

While you are on your holidays why don't you see whether there is a junior parkrun near your holiday that you can be a tourist at? It's always lovely to try a different parkrun but we look forward to you coming back to Gedling!

We did not hand out any milestone wristbands but looking from the results Chloe was due her marathon wristband so please come and see the run director next time you are at junior parkrun.
