**** Important notice – Change of course tomorrow (17th January 2016) ****

***** URGENT MESSAGE FOR ALL ROUNDHAY JUNIORS ******
Please note that due to the icy weather, tomorrow's Roundhay junior parkrun is moving to our winter course. We will meet by the skate park on Princes Avenue (note that we will probably start a couple of minutes late to allow anyone turning up to the normal course to be redirected).

Can I ask that you spread the word about this to anyone you know who comes to junior parkrun?

Thank you, and see you tomorrow (wrap up warm and don't forget your barcode!)

Volunteer Coordinator

 

Roundhay junior parkrun #111- 3 January 2016

Happy 2016 to all! After only having a select few running last weekend (what dedication) numbers were up to 86 this week. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces, but also great to see 14 new faces joining us - do children make New Year's resolutions to get fitter? Welcome to the club newcomers and welcome back to the rest of you. We hope to see lots more of you in 2016.

Congratulations to the 14 runners who recorded PBs this week and to Ella and Annabel Lim and Maddie Metcalf, all of whom completed their 21st runs and earned their marathon wristbands. Congratulations also to Cameron Brockway who completed his 11th run and earned his half-marathon band.

The volunteer rota is looking awfully bare for the next few weeks so if you could help out the young runners would be very grateful: we can't do it without the volunteers as there are strict rules about the number of marshals we need, so that every part of the course is visible to a marshal. If you want to help then email roundhay-juniorshelpers@parkrun.com. At the moment you can pretty much pick any role (I've already baggsied mine for Sunday).

It was great to be back at Roundhay juniors after a few weeks off. This week was our festive Christmas run and we had 73 runners, of whom 7 were first timers and 9 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 6 different athletics clubs took part.

Congratulations to Holly Featherstone on reaching 50 runs – amazing recovery from her broken leg back when we first started. And some beautiful costumes in the Featherstone family! In fact, there were a fair few excellent costumes among both the youngsters and the grown-ups. Thank you for entering into the Christmas spirit (because it’s nearly Christmas). Other milestoners this week were Kyal Head and Douglas Campbell who earned their marathon bands for 21 runs and Ava Martin, Daniel Aggrey,  Jayden Lee Head and Rory Hollowed who all ran their 11th runs and earned their half marathon bands.

Roundhay junior parkrun #103 – 8 November 2015

Number of first-timers (9) x number of PBs (11) = number of runners (99). How very tidy.

Thanks to everyone who joined us, whether to run, volunteer or support, for our Remembrance Sunday run. It's lovely to see we’ve still got first-timers joining us even though the weather definitely seems to be on the turn. Welcome to the 9 young runners who ran with us for the first time today.

Please make sure that your child hands over their own barcode when they run: we had 2 adult barcodes scanned in our run for 4-14 year olds this week!
