Did you join us on Sunday for Park run?
How did your runner get on?
Wasn't it lovely weather to run in?
It looks like our little hic up with the finish tokens was sorted OK as no emails from anyone saying there was an issue so we are really happy about that So what else happened on Sunday? Well we seemed to have a little bit of a mini helper takeover. There was us in the cupboard when suddenly there were lots of smaller people grabbing everything and running to set everything up! In total we had 8 people running an volunteering!
Thanks mini tribe you were fab! I think everyone enjoyed the warm up loads, it was a great team effort and a fantastic start to a run (which only got better)
We did a test start, apparently 2 is the new 3 but then they were off.
32 Boys, 28 Girls
Lets look at the first 5 in...
It was a brilliant and fast run for the 5 of them, no PB's but close. Boy, Girl, Girl, Girl then boy. A brilliant run from all 5 of them.
19 Personal Bests
11 Boys 8 Girls
Now there are far to many PB's to mention each one by name however, Sophie (26 seconds off) and Sebastian (19 seconds off) who were both part of the junior helpers both got a PB.
So does volunteering make you run faster?
Now the final PB i'm going to mention belongs to a young gentleman Ethan who finished just before our tail walker.
By this time the Children had the megaphone so he was yelled (sorry encouraged) in. It was his 4th run with us, his first PB and 19 seconds quicker than his first run. Nice steady running from him (and his dad) I wonder if dad is slowing him down? Well done Ethan
4 first timers
Now welcome to all of our first timers, there were 4 ladies who had their bar codes so have a time. It was nice to meet Beth at the end who said she had enjoyed it (and even helped handing round the biscuits). You had a great first run at 13:07, next time do your shoe lace up before you start and you will have a PB Welcome to Beth (her mum) and all the first timers - we hope to see you again at Bedford Juniors.
