Hello everyone and welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #186.
On a drizzly Sunday morning, we welcomed 47 of you to our event, and this week it was the boys outnumbering the girls 25 to 22, however for the second time in as many weeks, our first finisher was a girl. This morning Madeleine Patel, who was doing only her second ever junior parkrun, followed in the footsteps of last week’s female first finisher Alannah Thornton!
We had 7 first timers who joined us this morning: Benjamin Webb, William Webb, Jacob James, Alexander James, Norah Hayton and Harrison Birch, who were all doing their first ever junior parkrun; and Isobella Hutchinson, who was running at Temple Newsam for the first time. We hope you all enjoyed your run and look forward to welcoming you back to Temple Newsam again soon.
There were 4 fantastic PBs this morning: a huge well done to Callum Gaunt, Madeleine Patel, Joshua Cochrane and Ella Hutchings.
Today’s highest age grade went to William Webb with 77.49%, which puts him in 2nd place in the ‘Top 1000 Temple Newsam junior parkrun Age Graded League’! Not bad for his first ever junior parkrun!
Congratulations to Jacob Capewell who joined the Half Marathon Club this morning, and to Toby Clay who joined the Marathon Club (whilst also being a brilliant junior tail walker this morning!) Well done to both of you! Don't forget that club wristbands are given out at parkrun while certificates can be found in your individual profile.
Thanks as always to our brilliant volunteers: Cath ANDREWS, Ronnie BRAY, Zak BRITTON, Ella BROWN, Benjamin CLAY, Toby CLAY, Kate CRONSHAW, Mr Sam CUSSEN, Michael HIGGINS, Annette MCTAGGART, Brian MCTAGGART, Janet MUJTABA, Amy RUSSELL, Jonathan RUSSELL, Lucy RUSSELL, Graham SHOOTER
Don’t forget that next week it’s our 4th birthday and kids’ takeover day! We’ve had quite a few children who have already signed up to be a hi-vis hero, but we still need some more. If you have a Mini-Me who would like to get involved (they will be supervised by an adult volunteer) then please get in touch via our Facebook page. Roles still available are:
5 x marshals
1 x tail walker
1 x timer
1 x Run Director
That’s it for today. See you next week, and remember our start time is now 9am every week!
