Back to school this week for the Autumn term and it was a very autumnal morning! I had my big coat on as I left the house as we had the first frost – I couldn’t believe it! Quite chilly but also lovely & sunny. Great help from some of our volunteers for the pre event set-up – thanks to Jacob, Harrison, Owen & Elizabeth
Speaking of volunteers, I had 21 volunteers for today’s event and had received more others of help. This is absolutely amazing and I’d like to thank all of you so much; your help was & is very much appreciated. I normally leave mentioning our volunteers until the end of my report but I was overwhelmed this week; it was so reassuring knowing that I had the roster covered in advance of the event. If anyone is ever able to volunteer please message us via FaceBook or email us at Aylesburyemail@example.com. Your help is invaluable. . .thank you
Anyway. . . we had a great turnout today with 85 runners! We welcomed 3 first timers to junior parkrun: Ffion V, Jess B & Sam W. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and that you join us again very soon.
I took great pleasure in handing out the following wristbands: -
Ben P – half marathon (11 junior parkruns)
Ingrid C-S – marathon (21 junior parkruns)
Congratulations! Remember you can download a certificate by logging into your junior parkrun account to mark the achievement.
The following have now qualified for awards: -
Bali H – half marathon
Lexie B – half marathon
Zoe P – half marathon
Melaka U - marathon
If you think that you’ve qualified for a wristband but haven’t received it yet, please do get in touch via FaceBook or email so that we can investigate for you.

Here are a couple from this week’s event including one of me (I do love a selfie!) with my niece Amelia D and my friend Lexi S with a couple of her running buddies.
Thanks everyone for a great event!
