We hosted 26 superstars who ran, jogged and walked our 2k course. Jo and Rohan did a fantastic job ensuring that everyone got around our course. Rohan was joined by a very special guest; Felix the Fox. Felix’s presence ensured that there were 5 PBs this morning! Great work!

We were joined by 4 firefighters from Edwinstowe Fire Station who ran alongside our juniors, giving them lots of encouragement. We are delighted that they could join us and hope that they will return in the near future.

Daisy and Felix ensured that all of our juniors were fully warmed up before heading to the start. All of our juniors were amazing. This morning, our course record was smashed. Jake Orr was the first finisher recording a time of 07:21 with Edward Holden coming in next with a time of 07:29. Well done to everyone who completed the course this morning.

We had 6 first timers this morning; a big shout out to Jake O, Sylvain P, Harry O, Braydn-Jake C, Katherine F and Joshua L. We hope that our first timers enjoyed Dukeries junior parkrun and will be eager to return in the near future. If you’ve had a great time, please tell your family and friends and encourage them to try junior parkrun.

A massive shout out to Jessica who received her half-marathon wristband this morning, this is an amazing achievement. Well Done! Our juniors receive a wristband after completing 11, 21 or 50 junior parkrun events. Please let us know once you have achieved this milestone so that we can present you with a lovely wristband.

This morning’s event could not have happened had it not been for our amazing volunteer team. A big shout out to our 16 high-vis heroes for doing an amazing job this morning. It was lovely to welcome several new volunteers to our team, those being Charlotte A, Rohan S, Louise P and Paul C. We hope that you enjoyed volunteering and will return to wear a high-vis in the near future.

Dukeries junior parkrun is back at 8.45am on Sunday 17th November. We hope that you will join us again. If you would like to join our volunteer team, please send us an e-mail and we will add you to our volunteer roster. We are a friendly bunch and we meet at the Dukeries Leisure Centre straight after the event for a drink and a chat. Everyone is welcome.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon
