Barking and Dagenham junior parkrun #Event 288 – 09/05/2021


Spring has been bursting out everywhere and today at Parsloes Park in Dagenham was no exception. The dandelions and daisies were abundant in the grass and the sun shone for all it was worth.

It was great to see 19 children complete the course as well as others who came to watch their siblings. Our spectators also included Mums, Dads, Aunties and Grandmas!

We welcomed three new runners today, Matthew Guiney, Max Copping and Fred Copping and we hope that they enjoyed themselves and that they come back again.

Well done to Taylor Green for being the first one to complete the course, followed by Yaseen Elfallah. It was very relaxed this morning so no personal bests but many stayed on to chase each other through the wild grass area.

Overall times this week.  Taylor GREEN 10:50, Yaseen ELFALLAH 10:53, Jacob KELLY 11:23, Heath BAKER 11:47, Ellison GREEN 12:33, Ryan HOWLETT 13:04, Yusuf AL-HAQ 13:47, Vidya MONRO 13:54, Olivia KELLY 14:04, Matthew GUINEY 14:24, Max COPPING 16:12, Fred COPPING 16:23, Gwyneth M W LI 16:44, Kiefer COLES 17:29, Sylvie SWINBURNE 18:01, Samatta MAHARJAN 18:51, Aimee BATEMAN 20:39, Erin KELLY 20:40 and Iwanee MAHARJAN 21:21.

We had brilliant action shots from Jason Li available on by clicking here and we hope that you enjoy seeing yourselves!


We are very grateful to all 19 of the volunteers and thank them for making the event happen and tidying it away afterwards.

We look forward to another great Sunday morning run next week. Tell your friends and get them to join in the fun!

Our special thanks to all those who have donated since the start of the event.  We have just hit our target which enabled us to get the AED but now we need to save towards some additional items for it:

- special pads for those under 8
- A travel case for it (so it does not get damaged)
- training pads so we can teach our core team how to use it (if needed)

That said, if you are in a position to support us.  Please do so via this link:

Street Tag:
We are also very grateful for the links that Claudia helped us build with the local streettag team who have also been instrumental in helping us reach our target for purchasing our AED and continue to support our event.

Future Youth zone:

Our thanks to the local youth zone who have kept our 'outdoor equipment' safe during lockdown.  They will also continue to keep our equipment safe and provide us with toilet facilities up until 10am on the day of our events.
