Wet. That's what we were! Wet.
It was the soggiest Sunday morning for quite a while today, but that did not stop 35 brave and determined junior parkrunners turning up and tackling the elements and the hills of Gedling. A massive well done to all of you and also to those adults who were responsible for getting you to and from the park.
Despite the conditions, a fantastic thirteen of you somehow managed to record your fastest ever time, congratulations all of you. It's not all about speed though, today we welcomed four of you who were absolutely brand to junior parkrun. Welcome Grace, Riley, Joseph and Adam, we hope to see you all again very soon.
We had a couple of juniors picking up their first wristbands today, both Ravi and Ada are now very proud owners of their half-marathon bands. Well done you two, keep on coming and you will soon get your marathon and ultra-marathon bands.
There was a fine selection of umbrellas on show today too, helping to keep your marshals as dry as possible. We wouldn't be able to get this event up and running without the lovely volunteers and we are always on the look out for more happy helpers, willing to join to group. If you fancy it, just let your Run Director know, or drop us an email. Please note that the email address will change tomorrow (11 Feb 19) to firstname.lastname@example.org
That's it from me. Tamsin takes the reins next week and I know she is looking forward to it.
See you soon, Jonathan. #loveparkrun
