Event 89 – February 4th 2018 – the one where we reached a milestone

What another brilliant week at Gedling junior parkrun this Sunday, finally after a few snowy weeks we have reached a landmark in our history. Last Sunday saw Charlie become the 5000th finisher of Gedling junior parkrun, which means that our amazing athletes have completed over 10,000 kilometres since we launched in 2016. Alongside Charlie were another 48 of you (and some willing adults!) tackling the hills.

We had two wristbands to give out this week, congratulations to those dedicated people. Remember you get wristbands for completing 11 (half marathon, 21 (full marathon) and 50 (ultra marathon) parkruns so shout up to the Run Director if you qualify.

The event wouldn’t be possible without the help of our amazing volunteers.
Nickesh popped over from the 5k event to Direct events, Bea and Bethan warmed you up, Tom and Nicola tail walked and in between, Wayne, Tabitha, Natalie, Tony, Richard, Madeleine, Tamsin, Kelly, Ellie, Sam, Helen and Roger marshalled the course and the funnel and finish area was staffed by our Duke of Edinburgh volunteers Louis, Sammy, Yasmin, Jack and Chris.
