Hello everyone and welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #177.
So England didn’t quite make it to the World Cup Final but that didn’t stop 67 of you ‘coming home’ to Temple Newsam for another hot, sunny run in the park! In fact, you were all so keen and eager to run this morning that we had a spectacular false start – Graham hadn’t even finished saying “Get set...” and you were off!
It was wonderful to see 21 first timers joining us this morning: Ryan Kluziak, Rory Masek, Daisy Allotey, Abigayle Hill, Max Grooby, William Kilner, Chloe Kilner, Morgan Smith-Manley, Joshua Barton, Archie Nisbet, Lily Stephenson, Isaac Abraham, Zak Gale and Hope Cassidy, who were all running their first ever junior parkrun; along with Oliver Hayes, Amber Hayes, Noah Gale, Luke Gale, Lyle Kershaw, Sophie Hinton and Noah Swoboda, who all ran for the first time at Temple Newsam. We hope you enjoyed your run and look forward to welcoming you back to Temple Newsam again soon.
We were also delighted to welcome Sharp Lane Primary School’s running club, organised by their pastoral manager Mrs Smith. It was lovely to see you all enjoying yourselves out on the course and we hope you’re feeling really proud of your achievements today.
The hot sun wasn’t stopping you this morning, as 9 of you achieved a super PB! High fives for Joshua Cochrane, Rebecca Strickland, Emily Strickland, Rohan Masek, Josephine Robins, Orlaith Marsh and William Wilson. Congratulations to Annabelle Fenton who joined the Half Marathon Club this morning. 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 amazing volunteers: Cath ANDREWS, Elliot ANDREWS, Pete ANDREWS, Nicky BEST, Ella BROWN, Kate CRONSHAW, Mr Sam CUSSEN, Michael HIGGINS, Brian MCTAGGART, Annette MCTAGGART, Ella MOULE, Rachel OWEN, David John OWEN, Amy RUSSELL, Jonathan RUSSELL, Lucy Russell, Graham SHOOTER, Debbie SMITH, Sarah WILSON
We are always happy to welcome new volunteers, no experience is necessary! If you would like to give it a go, just speak to someone in a hi-vis vest (or let us know via our Facebook page) and we will happily get you involved.
A reminder that from Sunday 2nd September the new start time for Temple Newsam junior parkrun will be 9am to meet other junior parkrun times around the UK. We appreciate that this time change may not suit everyone, but we hope that you will support this decision and continue to help make our parkrun magic happen.
That’s it for today. See you next week!
