Today marks Beaumont park juniors first birthday, can you believe it!
And what a wet one it was. We were hoping the weather would hold off but no, a few seconds after we started, the heavens opened and my goodness, didn't it rain! We had soggy marshals, parents and children. The rain, however, didnt stop everyone having fun. We had princesses, superheroes, Disney characters, skeletons and even Bananaman! You all looked amazing.
We had a change to the normal route and ran it in reverse. It did confuse a few, who thought we were actually running it backwards haha. Once everyone had finished it appeared it was a very popular route and the 22 PB's confirmed this! Amazing stuff, well done all. Although, it could have been the promise of cake in the band stand after the run.
Our top 3 finishers were: Jessica Hill - 09:55 (PB), Amber Miller - 10:10 (PB), and Tyler Wilkins - 10:13 (PB).
A massive thank you to our fabulous volunteers who stood out in the downpour, cheering and making lots of noise as the children went past. I hope you have all dried out.
Thank you to all for making our first year so amazing and heres to another fab year.
Hope to see you all again next week
