What an absolutely beautiful morning we had as we welcomed 61 runners to junior parkrun today! If we can have weather like that every week, it would be amazing! I’ll try to put an order in
We welcomed 6 new runners to junior parkrun today: Evangeline, Jack, Jocelyne, Lilly-Ann, Matilda & Ned. You all did brilliantly! It’s not easy doing something for the first time and it can be very nerve-wracking but you all completed the course - great job :-) We hope that you all enjoyed parkrun and that we see you again very soon!
I took great pleasure in handing out achievement wristbands to the following runners:
Bonita B collected her half marathon band (11 junior parkruns)
Sophy Walker collected her full marathon band (21 parkruns)
In addition, the following have now qualified for their wristbands:
Gavinjit S has completed 11 (half marathon)
Louis C has completed 21 (full marathon)
Woody D has completed 21 (full marathon)
Congratulations to all those that collected wristbands or have now qualified. Remember that you can download a certificate by logging into your junior parkrun account to mark the achievement. In addition, it was my very great pleasure to announce that today marked the 150th junior parkrun for Hannah W, seen below:
Outstanding! Well done Hannah, we can all take inspiration from your dedication
As for the run itself, 13 runners achieved PBs: Angelica B, Annabel H, Bethany W, Charlie A, Emily E, Erin C, Rhys B, Riley S, Ryan A, Sam G, Siya S, Toby S & William G. Congratulations, you all did amazingly well!
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. I always say that junior parkrun is about having fun and not about competing with anyone else but it’s a great confidence booster to see yourself improve over time.
As always, thank you so much to all the volunteers today. Without you we cannot hold this event and your help is very much appreciated. I say it in every report that I write but it’s true! 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. Thanks to my warm up crew today: Amelia C, Sophia C & Vicky N. You do a much better job of it than I do.
Finally, if you have any photos that you’ve taken with the selfie frame that we could upload to our FaceBook page, please send them through to us via email or FB Messenger. It would be great to see them!
Thanks everyone & see you next week.
