It was a somewhat soggy day in Stratton Park, but the rain held off for our run. 71 of you turned up this week, assisted by20 excellent volunteers who help to put the run on.
This week we had 7 members of the Ultra marathon club (50+ junior parkruns), 12 members of the Marathon club (21+ junior parkruns) and 16 members of the Half marathon club (11+ junior parkruns). At the other end of the scale 4 of you were doing your first ever junior parkrun with us. Welcome to junior parkrun. We hope you enjoyed it and will be back for many more. Despite the slightly damp conditions underfoot, 16 of you got new PBs this week. Congratulations to all of you.
4 runners were recorded as “unknown” in this week’s results. The parkrun rule is: No barcode, no time, no exceptions, so please do remember to register and bring a printed barcode with you. You can print out a sheet of 6 barcodes from your profile page, that’s enough to keep lots of spare ones in handy places. Or you can order (small charge) a variety of plastic barcodes from: https://parkrun-barcode.com/
Please note that barcodes stored on phones aren’t accepted.
If you’d like to volunteer in future weeks you can check the volunteer roster here: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/basingstoke-juniors/futureroster/ Then please e-mail us, post on our Facebook page, or speak to one of the team in the park.
See you all in the park next week.
