Sun 9th June

What better way to spend a sunny Sunday than on the hills of Gedling Country Park for our junior parkrun! 87 super speedy runners and 26 volunteers definitely agreed, creating a real buzz this morning.

We welcomed plenty of new faces today: 7 recorded their first official runs at Gedling juniors, and there were a few more who haven't yet registered and got their barcode. It’s easy to register and you only need to do it once.

Overall we recorded 21 Personal Best times this morning which was amazing, and definitely rewarding to ring the PB-Cowbell at the end! Well done to all of you and a special mention to Joey and Jenny for completing their half marathons (11 runs), as well as Cairo for completing his full marathon (21 runs). Anyone can qualify for a wristband after completing 11, 21 or 50 junior parkruns, so if you think that you are due to collect one, just speak to your friendly Run Director and we'll make sure that you're not disappointed.

A massive thank you to all of our volunteers who played a helping hand this morning. The lovely volunteers today were: Nick Hill, Frances Astill, Tom England, Sammy King, Sarah Horringan-Fullard, Matthew Marshal, Jonathan Tanner, Joanne Tanner, Sharon Astill, Bo Nowicki, Clare Cunningham, Tasmin Millns, Richard Millns, Helen Smalley, Ewan Wane, Zoe Tanner, John England, Isabella Riley, Catriona Buckley, Louis Astill, Madeleine Millns, Madeleine Horrigan, and Sonny Chapman.

Junior parkrun wouldn't happen without the efforts of our amazing volunteers, please do come and help out, it is loads of fun and none of the roles are difficult.

Thank you for coming to Gedling juniors to run, jog, walk or volunteer, see you next week when Sarah is back in the run director’s hi-vis.

Enjoy your week!
