Temple Newsam junior parkrun #212 17.03.19
Hello everyone and welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #212.
After the cold and rain of last Sunday (and yesterday!) we were relieved to see much better weather this morning! We were delighted to welcome 39 of you today, just slightly up on last week’s attendance, with 16 girls and 22 boys, and representatives from 4 different running clubs: High Peak Athletic Club, St Theresa’s AC, Crossgates Harriers AC and Rothwell Harriers & AC.
It was also lovely to welcome 4 first timers this morning: Max Maddison, Seth Martin and Finley Fox, who were all doing their first ever junior parkrun, and Dougie Blatherwick who usually runs at Newark junior parkun, 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.
In an exact repeat of last week’s results, 8 of you got a fantastic PB this morning: high fives go to Jacob James, Rory Bryan, Libby Gregory, Dylan Jellett, Eve Maddison, India Robinson, Lincoln Goodwin and James Harrison.
Today’s highest male age grade went to Jacob James with 68.40% and the highest female age grade was Eden Few-Finch with 59.68%.
Congratulations to Eden Few-Finch who joined the Ultra Marathon Club this morning, well done to you! Don't forget that club wristbands are given out at parkrun while certificates can be found in your individual profile.
It’s 17th March today, so we’ll ‘shine the spotlight’ on our 17th place finisher this morning – Lewis Clay. Lewis has now done 101 junior parkruns: 100 here at Temple Newsam and one at Southampton junior parkrun. He has also run twice at Rothwell parkrun. Lewis ran his first ever junior parkrun in January 2015, finishing in a time of 21:10, and his PB is currently 10:12, less than half the time of his first run! Today Lewis was the 10th boy to cross the finish line, in a time of 13:09. Fantastic running Lewis, keep it up!

That’s it for today. See you next week!
