Cheddar junior parkrun is cancelled on 5 April 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

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.


Cheddar junior parkrun no 129 – 20th Feb 2019

Another fantastic Cheddar junior parkrun. Despite the slightly parky weather we had 20 intrepid runners and 13 fantastic volunteers. A special mention goes to William, who did his first parkrun at the grand age of 4 and a few days, we hope he back for many more runs but he has a few to do to catch his sister who has done 101 runs at Cheddar.

Elijah was the first runner home in 8.58 and with the highest age grade of 66.75% closely followed by Alex in 9.22 and an age grade of 66.49. Finn was a first timer at Cheddar, he came third in 10.01, age grade 55.87, and our only male in the 11-14 category, well done Finn we hope you come back again. For the girls Darcy was first in 9.43 (62%) and out only girl in the 11-14 category, Alice was second in 10.49 (58.74%) and Megan was third in 11.43 (57.99%). Well done girls.
There were just two PBs - Megan on her 8th run (third at Cheddar) and Lucas on his third run at Cheddar. Lucas is getting faster every week - how long can he keep this going!
A huge thank you to the volunteers we need lots every week - so please do consider volunteering, its easy, fun, gives you a sense of well being, and without the volunteers we can't run this event weekly. Hope to see you all next Sunday - the first weekend of half term for most.


Cheddar Junior parkrun no 120 – 02 Dec 2018

Today was the 120th Cheddar Junior parkrun and it was quite miserable weather! We had 16 people turn up and everyone did very well. Well done to Albany Powell who did her first Junior parkrun today. Despite the drizzle the conditions were quite good. See you all next week - I hope it is sunny!

Cheddar junior parkrun no 115

Well done to the 19 intrepid runners who sprinted, jogged, walked and skipped around the Kings leisure centre sports field today. It was a bit windy but dry and probably better if you were running than if you were volunteering. Thank you to our wonderful 12 volunteers today. We had some visitors today - and Olivia Bramwell who usually runs at Shrewsbury was our only runner who achieved a PB today, well done Olivia. Charlie, her brother did his first run at Cheddar today, Cameron Neilson-Pritchard was another first timer, second boy home and third overall. We hope he feels inspired to come again. Ruby Tipper was first home overall and first girl finisher for the second time. Alexander Rice was the first boy finisher for the second time.

We hope to see you all again on the 4th of November, and please volunteer if you can.

Sorrel and Elijah


Cheddar junior parkrun no 101 – July 22nd

We had a 30 runners on Sunday July 22nd, including just one new first timer. There were 7 new PBs. One of the most impressive was Ellen Flinders who has run at Cheddar junior parkrun just 5 times and managed 3 PBs including her most recent PB when she knocked 1 minute 20 seconds off her last PB to run in a time of 11 minutes 20 seconds. The first finisher on Sunday was Seb Leaney, and the best age grade percentage of the day went to Olly Smith with 72.61%, and that included running with his arm in a splint! Thank you to all the volunteers and hope to see you all next week.
