It was a really sunny morning for junior parkrun today although quite slippy from last night's down pour of rain. It was my first time as run director since I had started volunteering for DofE and I was very nervous going in to it, however the experienced volunteers guided me through it and I couldn't have done it without their help. There were many volunteers today to help out with over 80 junior runners, which was very helpful. We started with the volunteers brief which I thought went well, remembering to mention all of the milestones which our volunteers had met. We then moved on to the runner's brief, with a massive number of runners raring to take on the 2k course. After the warm up we moved on to the run which as Scott reminded me is not a "RACE". Lots of the runners today posted quick times and all gave a really good effort. Thanks again to all the volunteers for making this event and my first as run director possible.
