It was a super cold morning for the 245th Harrow Lodge junior parkrun on 20 January 2019. Temperatures below zero greeted our runners but with the sun slowly making it's way over the surrounding houses, it was actually a beautiful morning.
59 youngsters layered up for the event, including 4 newcomers. We welcome Gabriella-Grace Barrett, Jack Beaseley, Dylan Elsayed and Harrison Pearce to the parkrun community and hope to see you for many more runs.
We were very pleased to award a wristband today with Gabriel Norton receiving his half-marathon band having made it to 11 junior parkruns a couple of weeks ago. Well done Gabriel!!
There were 8 personal bests this week. Congratulations go to Kasey Perceval-Broadfield, Summer Smith, Natalia Greenfield, Charlie White, Alice and Isla Duke, Niamh Coyle and Jessica Green on their great efforts.
As ever, we are hugely grateful to our wonderful volunteers and appeal to all parents/carers to step forward if they are able, in order to make the event possible.
The forecast is for continuing cold weather so we will no doubt remain wrapped up for next Sunday. Don't worry though - junior parkrun will continue however cold it gets!! See you then.
