Alyn Waters #7
Heavy downpours didn't stop 17 children from running at the seventh Alyn Waters junior parkrun. After a quick warm up the runners set off on the course, passing the enthusiastic marshals at regular intervals along the way, before turning round after 1000m and returning to the start.
First to finish this week was Niamh MAKIN of Deeside AAC in a very good time for the conditions. First boy home was Archie REYNOLDS, shortly followed by Lauren Jones and Dewi HEARD. Dewi was running here for the 6th time, along with Max SCHWARZ and Keira SMITH. In fact, Max and Keira have run 9 junior parkruns each so are closing in on their Half Marathon wristbands – just 2 more Sundays to go.
There were 2 first timers this week, as well as 8 runners getting PB times. Congratulations to all runners however you did, it was great to see so many out running in those conditions. A big thank you must also go out to all the parents and other grown-ups who weren't put off getting up on a Sunday morning by the rain and brought (and in many cases ran with) the participants.
