This week we had 45 children (and dozens of accompanying & supportive parents !) , of whom 13 managed personal best times; very well done to all of you.
We also welcomed 6 first timers , which is always great to see!
There were no milestone wristbands to hand out this week ( for children who would have been completing their 11th, 21st or 50th Gedling Junior parkruns), but we were able to give a huge round of applause to celebrate the amazing achievement of Tegan, who was completing her 150th junior parkrun; well done Tegan!
Our first finisher this week was Leo, and our ultimate finisher was Charlie, who was also serving as one of our Tailwalkers (Tailwalking is one of the many roles that you can try out, if you join our group of volunteers).
It would be really great to have additional helpers, to make sure we can run the event every week (once again this week we didn’t know if we had enough volunteers until Saturday night) , so If you’d like to join our merry band of volunteers from time to time, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us through our Facebook page (Gedling Junior Parkrun).
Hopefully see you all again soon !
