3 December 2017

Winter has arrived but we were presented with mind conditions for the 187th Harrow Lodge junior parkrun.  47 youngsters lined up today in order to run for fun.

There were no 'real' first timers, though we did welcome 2 runners who were new to Harrow Lodge - Arthur Ansell and Ethan Georgeson.  It's always great to see visitors on the run and we hope to see you both again at some point.

We were able to present an ultra-marathon wristband to Jamieson McLaren following the completion of his 50th junior parkrun last Sunday.  What a great achievement.

The good conditions brought 14 personal bests.  Congratulations to Oscar Emery, Findlay and Jamieson McLaren, Michael Henry, Erin Chester, Rocco Bellamy, Saul and Caleb McGrath, Charlie and Abigail Rogers, William and Rosie Hobbs, Samuel Kirk and Senan Leggate.

Thanks as ever to all our wonderful volunteers for making the event possible.  We'll be back next Sunday and hope to see you again then.

Another Sunday and another beautiful crisp (freezing cold) morning greeted us.  53 youngsters lined up today for the 186th Harrow Lodge junior parkrun.

Newcomers keep coming and today was no different with Lucas Nolan, Holly Reilly, Oscar Cornwell and Thomas and Rosie Warner making their first junior parkrun.  We hope you enjoyed yourselves and come back for many more.

We presented 2 milestone wristbands today.  First up was Alex Robinson who received his half-marathon band having previously completed 11 junior parkruns.  Then we had Olivia Forrest receiving her marathon wristband after completing her 21st junior parkrun last week.

Thanks as ever to our volunteers.  Katie Grove and Jen Sheridan joined our merry gang this week for the first time.  We are very grateful and hope to see some more newcomers getting involved soon.  Nothing beats being part of the volunteer group!

See you again next week as we move into December!

29 October 2017

It's now almost November and by this time in the year we generally see low numbers in attendance as the weather turns gloomy and the nights draw in.  So how surprised were we to see 65 youngsters line up for the 182nd Harrow Lodge junior parkrun on 29 October 2017.  65 is the equal 7th highest ever turnout which is just fabulous!

Among the 65 were 8 first timers.  We welcome Ethan Brien, Joseph Gray, Lois Smith, Shannon McGarry Marsden, Layla Fincham, Oliver Woolnough-Brown, Mitchell Thurgood and Albie Lane to the parkrun family and hope to see you for many more runs.

We were very please to award 2 wristbands today.  Robbie Brown received a half-marathon bands after completing his 11th junior parkrun last Sunday.  Jacob Ley completed his wristband set by receiving his ultra-marathon band after running his 50th junior parkrun last week.
