This week's report has been written by Oscar, one of our Duke of Edinburgh volunteers. He did our first timers briefing and also bar code scanned today, so he deserves a special mention in his own right....over to Oscar....
It was a quite a cloudy day this morning and I thought oh no we’ve just missed the sun from the day before. I hoped that it would clear up on the way to Meadowcroft but sadly it didn’t - but still we had a total of 63 dedicated runners.
Before we started the run off today we awarded Ben G, Fintan B and Justin K-N their half marathon bands, whilst Josef S and Chloe G received their marathon bands. Alice T and Nate H qualified for their half marathon bands and will receive them next time. Remember that you can download a certificate by logging into your junior parkrun account to mark the achievement.
I’d also like to say a big well done to the 8 first timers: Bali H, Molly U, Alice U, Isobel U, Mav H, Daniel W, Bilyana F, Owen W. We hope you enjoyed it and will tell your friends about us
We also had 15 PBs today especially Lexie B who beat her PB by over one and a half minutes. Wow!
It’s always a nice sight to see kids running through the finish with a big grin on their face and the general attitude to be nice and cheery.
Well done to everyone who showed up this morning and whatever speed you ran, you’re still faster than those who stayed at home. Remember that you can view the full results and stats at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/aylesbury-juniors/results/latestresults/ If you run regularly it’s nice to be able to see how you’re progressing.
A Big thank you to all the volunteers here today we wouldn’t be able to organise this without their help so thank you so much. If anyone is ever able to volunteer please message us via FaceBook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Without a full volunteer roster we are not allowed to run the event so it really is very important.
Take care and we’ll see you next week.
