Another fantastic morning at Gedling junior parkrun. We had lots of lovely comments today about how much people love junior parkrun so thank you for being part of the magic of Gedling junior parkrun.
We welcomed 2 official first timers - Kiera and Phoebe and hello to our first timers who did not have a bar code. We hope to see you all again soon!
There were 46 runners, joggers and walkers today, luckily the mist started to clear at 9am. When we set up the course there was hardly any visibility so we were a bit worried that we would not be able to see how super you were all doing.
An amazing 10 of you recorded a personal best this morning - well done to Dominic, Emily, Luke, Holly, Billy, Rafe, Oliver, Lewis, James and Henry.
Did you notice our lovely new finish funnel that has been donated to us? Here are the Duke of Edinburgh volunteers showing it off!
As always we had a fantastic bunch of volunteers this morning. A big thank you to Sammy and Jack keeping time, James, Louis and Myles bar code scanning, Yasmin managing the funnel, Ewan handing out the tokens, Evie sorted the tokens after the run, Roger tail walked and our magnicient marshals were Kelly, Rory, Hilary, Jonathan, Ellie, Karen, Natalie, Adam, Ian, Joanne, Zoe, Rita and Nic.
Did you realise that out of all our volunteers this morning 17 of them did not even have family running at junior parkrun? They were volunteering just because they love parkrun! Some of our volunteers also travelled some distance to be with us. Nic came from Beeston, Adam came from Sleaford but the winners of the furthest distance travelled are Rory and Hilary who came from Ipswich (although they were visiting family as well!) Rory has now volunteered at parkrun over 450 times and Hilary over 100 times. Wow! Isn't that amazing? Thank you for coming to visit us at Gedling juniors.
Next week our regular volunteer Jonathan will be doing his first time stint as Run Director so a big thanks to Jonathan.
See you again soon on the hills of Gedling.
