There will not be a LF junior parkrun on Christmas Day.
Thanks to everyone, runners, volunteers and funders for making today be so wonderful. We had a great turn out of 34, I was secretly dreading the 200 odd that some events have on their first run, but am sure we will get those numbers soon!
We added some extra markers to the course - I hope they helped. Do remember to turn off the path toward the park benches near the beginning and then run around to the right of them. If we have enough volunteers we might place someone there for the first couple of runs.
It's really great if parents etc run too, but please remind them to go to the side of the finish funnel rather than through it, otherwise it easily messes up the numbers.
22 of our 34 runners had never run a junior parkrun before, so a special welcome to you all. If you would like to volunteer with us as well as run let the Run Director know and we will see when we can fit it in; you could help with the warm up, if you are one of the first finishers scan the athlete codes and finish tokens at the end, or help with setting up and closing down. You could also help out with the run report, so budding journalists out there do let Mary know.
See you all next week, perhaps bring a friend along as well?
A great test run today, many thanks to those runners who made it, all the volunteers and the excellent feedback. We've ordered some more flags and Caution Runner signs. We attached a A screen shot of the results on our FB page; we know there is one anomaly but not quite sure where #DFYB!! See you Sunday
