As a regular volunteer at Alderman Kneeshaw parkrun its saddens me to know this will be the last run report for a undefined period of time due to the cancellation of all UK events due to the Coronavirus. Before I dwell on that I wish to recall the great parkrun day we had last Sunday.
We had 15 runners, of which 3 achieved PBs. These were:
Isabella Hill ran 9:48 on her 24th junior parkrun. Isabella has a 5k parkrun PB of 25.07 which she achieved the previous day at Hull parkrun. Great running Isabella. Keep the running going over the parkrun hiatus.
Nick Waugh achieved his best time of 14.02 knocking 1 minute and 3 seconds off his best time on his third run.
Reggie Low achieved a big PB on his second junior parkrun. Going from 21:17 to 19:53, way to go Reggie.
First boy back was Joseph Hardey in 9:29, which was close to his all time fastest time at Alderman Kneeshaw juniors. That was Josephs 94th junior parkrun!
First girl back was the aforementioned Isabella Hill on her 27th junior parkrun.
We welcomed Jayden Welburn to the parkrun family for his first run. We hope you come back often to junior parkrun and specifically to us at Aldermen Kneeshaw in the future.
Thanks as always to this weeks volunteers:
Andy DOUGLAS • Ann LONG • Daniel FRANCE • Hel BIG • Isabelle HARDEY • James FOULDS • Keith CONKERTON • Kerry YOUNG • Kim STAGG • Kristina GADIE • Lisa DOUGLAS • Mark GADIE • Martin HARDEY • Maxine HARDEY • Melanie WATSON • Paul REAM • Shaun KEMP • Trevor ROSE
So to face the elephant in the room. No junior parkrun next week and for what will probably turn out to be for some time. As we all face the unprecedented changes to our lives due to the coronavirus we at parkrun must take a break. It is important that during this time we try and reduce the transmission of the virus and by not holding junior and the Saturday parkruns we will do that. While this enforced hiatus is ongoing we all at Alderman Kneeshaw wish you all the very best. Try and stay healthy, active and try and find ways to help each other. I do hope we are all back at Alderman Kneeshaw junior parkrun soon. If you’re a runner do try and come back faster than your last run – that’s your challenge! If you’re a volunteer, we have nicely washed clean bibs for you to come back to…
