I checked the thermometer this morning, and it was officially chilly. But did that deter the 51 runners who came to Daventry Junior Parkrun this morning - you know the answer to that! With a beautiful blue sky as the backdrop, 5 runners speeded their way through to a PB. A big shout out too to the 4 first timers - we hope to see you again soon.
A particular thanks to the volunteers, who struggled with numb fingers to scan your barcodes and cheer you on - the event couldn’t happen without you, so many thank you’s to all the volunteers. And a special mention to one volunteer - Simon Elliott, who managed to timetable in volunteering as a VI guide into his 50th birthday celebrations, well done to Scarlett for ensuring that he built up a sweat!
Finally, congratulations to George, Ethan and Nathan who all collected their half marathon wristbands today.
