Central Park junior parkrun #49

Well, I think we can finally say the summer is but a distant memory after Sunday's run. Let's just say it wasn't the most pleasant of mornings.
But a bit of rain and wind were not enough to put off our hardy parkrunners, with 44 youngsters making the Sunday morning pilgrimage to Central Park.
With such horrible weather, it's no surprise there wasn't a deluge of PBs, but a big well done needs to go to Connie Goodley and Heidi Goodley-Gray, who both recorded new best times.
We also welcomed three first timers, with Harry Cranke, Maisie Goodley and Liana Jones all making their debuts.
First across the line this week was Joseph Reindel, in a fantastic time of 7:17. Next in, and first girl, was Evie Hemings in 8:06, followed by Edward Judd, who was just a second behind.
Once again, thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers, who gave up a nice Sunday lie-in in their warm dry houses to ensure that the event went ahead. More helpers would always be nice, so if you are interested in lending a hand, just check out the website or Facebook page.
