Temple Newsam junior parkrun #195 18.11.18
Hello everyone and welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #195.
It was a rather chilly start but the sun came out to see 48 of you run at Temple Newsam this morning. The boys massively outnumbered the girls today, in fact there were exactly twice as many: 32 boys and 16 girls!
We welcomed 6 first timers to our event this morning: Max Crossland, Archie Boyne, Haydn Vessey and Ralphy King, who were all doing their first ever junior parkrun; and Saoirse Oconnell and Sebastian Oconnell, who were both 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 7 fabulous PBs today: high fives go to Zeke Phillips Vessey, Lucy Denman, Jessica Denman, Carys Earl-Speed, Noah Lebeter, Seth Miller and Frankie Fox.
Today’s highest male age grade went to Archie Boyne with 68.40%, a fantastic achievement on his first ever junior parkrun, and the highest female age grade was Carys Earl-Speed with 64.91%.
It was a special morning for milestones as 4 of you joined the Half Marathon Club! Congratulations to Archie Lovett, Felicity Burn-Chandler, Carys Earl-Speed and Rhion Earl-Speed, well done to all 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:Charlie BLAND, Ronnie BRAY, Zak BRITTON, Ella BROWN, Kate CRONSHAW, Lisa JAMES, Brian MCTAGGART, Annette MCTAGGART, Rachel OWEN, Louise TURNER, Dave John WILLIAMSON
We’re always happy to welcome new volunteers so if you’d like to be a high-vis hero, please send us a message or speak to someone in a high-vis vest and we’ll happily welcome you on board.
In just a few weeks time we will be celebrating our 200th event! Weather permitting (fingers crossed for no winter cancellations) this special event will take place on Sunday 23rd December – put the date in your diary and watch this space for more details!
That’s all for today, see you next week!
