Event 71 – 10th September 2017

It's like we have never been away from the hills with Sunday coming round so quickly, that must mean one thing....junior parkrun day!

Today was event number 71 and would you believe it we had 71 juniors navigating their way around the course! 11 of you managed to complete the 2km with a personal best and 4 of you were recorded as first timers so a big welcome from us. There were 8 unknown runners today who won't get a run credit so don't forget to register via the parkrun website, print a barcode and bring your barcode with you next time as we always enjoy handing out half marathon (11 runs), marathon (21 runs) and ultra marathon (50 runs) wristbands to celebrate your achievements.

This week we celebrated the achievements of Arthur, Oliver and Florence who all received their marathon wristbands! If you are due a wristband, just let the run director know so they can present it to you!
