Once again, I am never disappointed by the atmosphere that is generated by Gedling junior parkrun. So many excited voices as we wait for the start, the chitter-chatter of friends saying hello to each other as they play on the park and the squeaks of joy as the "3-2-1, go" releases hundreds of little legs onto the course.
Today we welcomed 59 of you to our beautiful park and you certainly made the most of it. Among the numbers were four brand-new parkrunners, a huge hello to Luca, Alexandra, William and Ella. There were a few personal best times today too, Phoenix, Hudson, Evalina, Lydia and Samuel all managed to shave a few seconds off their previous best time. Well done all of you. Congratulations too to Ewan and Edward who completed 50 and 11 junior parkruns today. If you think that you are due to receive your celebration wristband, just let your Run Director know and you'll be leaving with a lovely little keepsake. Don't forget that you can download and print a certificate too, both are great if you have a show and tell coming up at school.
As always, we wouldn't be able to put on this marvelous event without the help of our volunteers. Look how happy they are in the hi-viz! If you fancy wearing the waistcoat of wonder, just drop us an email or have a chat with your Run Director. We are a little short over the summer months, so come and join us whenever you can.
Tamsin is in charge of the mega-phone next week, I know she is already looking forward to seeing you all.
See you at the start line, have a great week. Jonathan. #loveparkrun
