The rain just couldn't hold off any longer, and everyone got a little soggy at this weeks event. But no one's spirits were dampened and everyone still put in a fantastic effort, Marshalls and runners alike. I estimate a thousand high fives were given out, and I know that we had 6 first timers, choosing to run their first ever parkrun with us, thank you and I really hope you enjoyed it. We had tourists from Hilly Fields and Gedling and those visiting family for the holidays, welcome runners, we hope you enjoyed our course. And a phenomenal 16! new personal bests, if we add in the first timers, as that's also their personal best, that's 22 PB's achieved. It certainly seems like slightly soggy makes for perfect running conditions.
We need to give a huge thank you to our volunteers who make this parkrun possible every week, they were: Teresa ADAMS, Daniel BURTON, Tim CLARKE, Sam CLARKE, Charlie COOK, Heather DUFFY, Ryan FRAKE, Bob FRAKE, Glenn HANCOCK, Natalie HOLMES, Charlotte ROWATT, Ian SULLIVAN, Zoia WAINWRIGHT, Linda WOODINGS, Helen YATES
If you or your adults would like to volunteer one week, they can get in touch via the facebook page, by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can pop you down on the roster. All the roles are easy and fun to do and full training and support will be given.
Thank you for coming to our event, and we hope to see you again soon.
The Forest Rec Junior parkrun Team.
