On Sunday 19th May 2019 we were welcomed to Gedling Country Park with sunny skies and 92 juniors who ran, walked and jogged their way around our course.
The course was set up and our merry bunch of volunteers all had their roles given out in record time so we were able to have a prompt start time.
Big thanks to our amazing hi-vis heroes, on timers we had Zoe and Isabella, managing the funnel was Richard and Matthew, and scanning the barcodes was Ewan and Jonathan. Out on the course, managing you safely round as marshals was Clare, Rachel, Tom, John, Nick, Madeleine, Sarah, Jonathan, Joanne, Mark and Julie. Finally, bringing up the rear as tail walkers was Bea and Nicola.
Thanks also to Madeleine and Eloise for their extra help with the funnel and token sorting.
If you want to help out one week, have a look at our future volunteer roster to see if theres a job you fancy, and then drop Sarah an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Every role is really simple and everyone looks good in hi-vis!
There were a couple of half marathon writstbands handed out, these went to Finlay and Florence. Well done! Don’t forget to print off your half marathon certificate!
Big thanks to Ewan for leading the warm up and getting everyone raring to go.
And then you were off! Speeding your way round the park, up and down those hills! It was the perfect day for a PB as 13 of you scored new personal bests, well done!
That’s it from me for now, next week it’s Sarah being shouty with the megaphone!
