96 runners turned out in a slightly soggy Stratton Park last Sunday. Conditions must still have been good for running as 25 of you, more than a quarter of the field, got a new PB. Well done to all of you!
The field induced: 10 members of the Ultra marathon club (50+ junior parkruns), 19 members of the Marathon club (21+ junior parkruns) and 23 members of the Half marathon club (11+ junior parkruns). At the other end of the scale 8 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.
There were just 2 runners recorded as “unknown” in today’s results, the lowest for some time. 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.
Thanks as always to the 24 excellent volunteers who turned out to put the event on. Your help is much appreciated, we can’t do it without you.
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.
Next month we will be celebrated “Love Parks Week”. On Sunday 14th July we will have a wear green, or wildlife fancy dress run and the following Sunday, 21st July, we will organise a litter pick in the park. More details of both of these events to come.
See you all in the park next Sunday.
