Cheddar junior parkrun #187 – 9th May 2021

Congratulations to the 37 junior parkrunners who completed our 2k course this morning! It was great to see lots of dedicated runners who have been coming back time and again - well done to Bailey, Xavier, Euan, Kenzie, Scarlett, Parker, Freya, Rupert, Alys, Elin and William who have completed all four events since our restart. Xavier received his orange ultramarathon wristband for completing 50 runs in total, what an achievement! There were lots of personal best times today, and Olly was first home followed by Isabella who achieved a very impressive 73% age grade.

Many thanks as ever to our wonderful bunch of dedicated volunteers. Apparently this is how 'pre-event setup' is done!



Cheddar junior parkrun #185 – 25th April 2021

Another beautifully sunny morning and 34 junior parkrunners completed two laps of our course - well done to all of you! Alex and Harley had a sprint finish at the front, hotly followed by Isabella. We had lots more personal best times, and most importantly, loads of smiles. We had five new first timers, and a nearly-four-year-old who can't register for parkrun yet but completed the whole 2k, bravo!

Thank you as ever to all of our volunteers who make this event happen. If you would like to help out, please email us at to let us know when you are available, or click here to find out more:



Cheddar junior parkrun #184 – 18th April 2021

Wow! What an event! 41 juniors ran, jogged or walked around our field in glorious sunshine this morning with their grown ups, siblings and friends cheering them on. After 13 months away, it was so lovely to see everybody giving it their all. Our volunteers were keen to be back and did a fabulous job as ever - thank you so much!

Three wristbands were presented today to Arlo Clark, Isabella Clark and Elin Roderick England who completed their 21st junior parkrun back in March last year and finally claimed their green marathon wristbands this morning. Well done to all of you - great to see you back again and I suspect you will claim your ultra marathon wristbands in a shorter time!

There were many personal best times this morning from our regulars who must have been working hard to keep fit over the last year (or their legs have grown!) and we were delighted to welcome 7 children who completed their very first junior parkrun today.

There are lots of photos from today (thank you Jamie!) so click on the photos tab, then on the orange link to the Cheddar junior parkrun flickr group - see if you can find yourself!



We’re back on Sunday 18th April!

Cheddar junior parkrun #181 – 1st March 2020

Well done to the 13 children who braved the mud and rain this morning for the 181st Cheddar junior parkrun.  The field was very squelchy and slippery and most of the runners were covered in mud by the end.

Congratulations to Alys Roderick England who achieved her marathon wristband today after completing 21 junior parkruns.

Olly Smith led the group and completed the run in 09.43.  Elyssa Herowych secured a new PB on her 2nd parkrun as did Gabrielle Herowych who also on her 2nd parkrun shaved just under a minute off her first time last week with a new PB of 13.18.

Thank you to all the volunteers for braving the weather & mud and cheering on today's small group of dedicated children with their run.

Hopefully as we move towards spring we may start to see some warmer weather so please tell your friends all about Cheddar junior parkrun and how a free 2 lap run around a field with friends can give them a fantastic start to a Sunday morning.
