What a surprise waking up and stepping out of the house to a rather mild and pleasant morning, it felt like perfect running weather and 52 of you fabulous juniors thought so too!
We started off this morning by rewarding our juniors their milestone wristbands as they have done an amazing job running 11 (half marathon), 21 (marathon) or 50 (ultra marathon) junior parkruns. Don't forget to tell the run director when you are due for your wristband. This week Hannah, Abbie, Alex and Samuel achieved their half marathon and Noah achieved a marathon, fantastic and well done!
Our DofE volunteers James, Jack, Ewan and Christopher then delivered the warm up brilliantly to get all the juniors ready for a run.
We were joined by one first timer this week, welcome and we hope you enjoyed our course. A whopping 13 juniors achieved personal bests, great running from you all.
Lastly a big thank you to our volunteers and those who stepped in at the last minute so we could run the juniors safely, it's really appreciated that you all give your time on Sunday morning to help out. Christopher and Jack kept time, Peter, Peter, Amanda, Fraser, Jonathan, Jon, Felix, Sarah, Kelly, Nicola and Rich marshalled, Ella and Ewan scanned everyone in, James managed the funnel, Rob handed out tokens, Sam tail walked you all safely around the course and Theo sorted tokens.
Next week Helen will be wearing the run director vest and still needs some marshals for a full team, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on our facebook page gedling junior parkrun if you can help out.
