Event 123 – 25 June 2017

Hello everyone! We're back with the run report for Event 123 after missing the last couple of events.

Sunday was another good turnout with 82 juniors joining us - which is bang on our overall average attendance here at Barnsley juniors. Rest of the stats to follow...

Darrell was our Run Director this week and took charge of a full roster of volunteers. Thanks go to each and every one of them, and as we always say, the event simply couldn't happen without them:

Stephanie BOWER, Bill COTON, Simon EATON, Darrell HARRISON, Jake HARRISON, Tim HOBBS, Lyndsey JONES, Georgina JONES, Charlotte JONES, Gaynor LUNN, Jayne MANLEY, Jude MITCHELL, Tony MURRAY, June SIMS, Paul STEPHENSON, Martin SWIFT, Kathleen TAYLOR, Jennifer ULLETT, Tim WADE

Darrell handed out 3 milestone wristbands - 2 blue half marathon (11 runs) and 1 orange ultra marathon (50 runs!). It's always great to reward our juniors for these achievements and thanks to everyone for the applause you give to each of them in recognition. Head over to our Facebook page for some photos.

Georgina did a great job leading our warmup, supported by her sister Charlotte. Well done girls. Remember, if you'd like to help out with the warmup, juniors are always welcome to do so - just let our RD or warm-up leader know on the day.

It was a chillier day than last weekend for Event 122, but probably better conditions for running. Here are the stats:

82 juniors took part, of which

16 were First Timers doing their first ever parkruns - welcome!

14 recorded New PBs - well done

and we had just 1 Unknown in the results.

You can see the full results on our website here.

An important stat to note is that we passed through the 10,000 total runs barrier back in Event 121 on 4 June! The total number of runs completed over our 123 events now stands at 10,193. That's 20,386km covered by our juniors. That's more than the distance from Barnsley to Cape Town, South Africa and back again! Fantastic.

Looking ahead to next Sunday 2 July and our volunteer roster is looking in good shape. Thank you so much to all of you who have put your name down already. We very much appreciate it and doing so in good time makes the whole process so much less stressful for our core team. We need just 3 barcode scanners and 1 marshal to complete the roster, which is fantastic. You can check the state of the roster for future weeks here.

That's all for this week, see you on Sunday!
