A damp and drizzly morning did not deter our sixteen keen juniors at Dukeries junior parkrun, event number eight, this morning. We hosted 16 superstars who ran jogged and walked our 2k course.
Daisy and Felix made sure all our Juniors were warmed up before heading to the start.
We had five first-timers Alexander W, Rocco P, Scarlett P, Darcy P, Jennifer P. We hope you enjoyed Dukeries junior parkrun and will join us again soon.
Alexander Whitehead led the field from the start and came in with a first finishing time of 8.33 at his Dukeries debut. Dagon Murray was next with a time of 9.31 followed closely by Sylvain Pennington with 9.33. Daisy Wilson came in at 10.16, the third time she's finished first girl at Dukeries, followed closely by Sienna Hayward with 10.25 and Scarlett Parkin not far behind. A massive 'Well Done' to everyone who completed the course this morning.
As with all parkruns the events can't take place without the help of our volunteers. We had 14 high-vis heroes this morning who did a fantastic job. A big shout out to Kara for soldiering on in great pain as a tail walker and a special thank you for Mark for taking over. Thank you for the great Volunteering and we hope you will all return to wear a high-vis in the near future.
Dukeries Junior Parkrun is back at 8.45 am on Sunday 24th November, please come and join us again.
If you would like to join our Volunteer team, please send us an e-mail and we will add you to the roster. We are a friendly group 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 soon.
