We were so pleased this week that there was not any ice on the paths and so Gedling junior parkrun could go ahead. Remember that if we ever need to cancel a junior parkrun (which we try and avoid if at all possible) the first place to know about cancellations will be on our facebook page. (We can't update the website from our phones so are unable to do that while we are at the park).
So back to event 88 - 40 juniors were running, jogging, skipping and walking our lovely route at Gedling country park.
We welcomed 2 first timers to parkrun - we hope you enjoyed it Reuben and Billy!
Since Gedling junior parkrun started we have had 914 personal bests recorded. Wow! Today Rafe and Eve added to the total of personal bests. Well done!
We gave out a half marathon wristband today. Remember you get a wristband when you reach 11 (half marathon), 21 (marathon) or 50 (ultra marathon) junior parkruns. Don't forget to print your certificate off the parkrun website. Eve (who also got a PB) should have had her half marathon wristband today. Seth and Bethan should have had their marathon wristbands today so let the run director know next time you are here.
So next week we should reach 10,000km ran by runners at Gedling junior parkrun! So if you are runner 36 next week you will be the lucky junior who reaches this milestone!
A massive thanks to all our volunteers. We were concerned that we would not be able to get enough volunteers this week and would love it if we could get the roster filled up in advance. If you can help please let us know on our facebook page or by email on email@example.com.
So this week we had Ewan and Evie keeping time, Sammy and Christopher scanning bar codes, Jack handing out the tokens, Louis managing the funnel, Nicola tail walking, Helen was run director and the marshals giving out the high 5's were Maisie, Helen, Kelly, Karen, Sam, Roger, Rachel, Jenny, Peter, Rob, Tony and Natalie.
We look forward to seeing you next week when we welcome Nickesh in the run director vest.
