Our Mothers day run saw some very muddy conditions on our course leading to at least one runner losing a shoe! It didn't stop some of our brilliant runners getting new PB's though - huge congratulations to Mia, Libby, Kayla, Jasper and Kate.

Well done to all our runners this week for coming out and doing their best - we are always very proud of your efforts and love seeing your enthusiasm every week.

Finally many thanks to all our brilliant volunteers who so willingly give up their time each week to ensure that our event can happen. Please do let us know if you can help out - there really isn't anything to it and you would always be very welcome.

A beautiful crisp, cold morning for our 199th Harrow Lodge Junior Parkrun led to brilliant running conditions and 10 new PBs for our brilliant runners today.

Many congratulations to Kasey on getting his Ultra marathon wrist band for completing 50 runs - a great achievement.

We were really pleased to welcome some new runners - Mia, Libby Maisie and Isabelle - a great first effort by all of you and we hope you'll be back again soon for another run.

Finally thank you to all of our volunteers especially those who helped out for the first time or tried a new role. It really is fun and not a lot of effort so consider having a go helping out in the future - you would always be very welcome - send us an email or write on the whiteboard on a Sunday.

See you next week - we'll be celebrating our 200th junior parkrun at Harrow Lodge. There may well be cake!

It was a beautifully sunny, albeit a little cold, for our 198th junior Parkrun. We had a great turnout with 54 children (and their parents) running the course. A great Sunday morning!

There were 16 PBs run and 5 first timers. Well done to all of you.

Many congratulations to Izzy Valentine who received her Ultra-Marathon wrist band, and to James Tudor who volunteered for the 25th time, taking part in the warm up.

Thanks to all our volunteers for their involvement as always - please do let us know if you would like to volunteer for a future event - you would be very welcome.

Have a great week and we hope to see you next Sunday.


11th February 2018

A windy and cold morning with a hint of sunshine for our 197th junior parkrun. 27 runners (and their parents) enthusiastically tackled the course, battled the wind and ran through the mud. Well done to all!

Many congratulations to Isla Hope-Crossley our only runner this week to get a PB - a brilliant effort.

A particular well done - and hello - to our Harrow Lodge visitor Ethan Prince - a first timer on our course but a regular junior park runner elsewhere.

Finally well done to Hudson Brien and Adam Ledger who both got their half marathon wrist bands for completing 11 junior parkruns. Congratulations and we hope to see you receiving your marathon wristbands in a few more weeks.

Thanks to all our volunteers for their involvement as always - please do let us know if you would like to volunteer for a future event - you would be very welcome.

Hope to see you next Sunday!


28 January 2018

It was a nice mild morning at Harrow Lodge park for our 195th junior parkrun.  53 youngsters (and plenty of parents) joined us today.  The continuing recent rain meant that the course was still pretty muddy and boggy but we didn't let that stop us.

Among the 53 were 5 first timers.  We welcome Luka and Kate Kilcoin, Leila and Sophia Wells and Isla Hope-Crossley to the parkrun community.  We hope to see you for many more runs!

We were very pleased to award 5 wristbands today.  Half-marathon bands went to Grace Murphy and Shannon McGarry Marsden after they made it to 11 junior parkruns.  Additionally we had Samuel Bailey, Holly Little and Isabel Forrest who all received their marathon bands having run 21 times previously.  Well done to you all on a super achievement.

We saw 7 personal best runs on what was a testing day.  Congratulations go to Henri Hobbs, Dean and Jake Shaw, Harrison Nolan, Alex Stokes, Jack Hildreth and Travis Davis on your great efforts.

Thanks as ever to all our super volunteers for making the event possible.

We hope to see you all again next Sunday.
