This Sunday was a pleasant Summer's day, perfect for parkrunning, park-jogging and park-walking and park-volunteering !
Our wonderful volunteers arrived bright and early as usual, all 22 of them, ready to take up their roles with their usual gusto.
Once again, Ewan was first there, leading the charge to set up the course.
We also had several new volunteers (well, new to me anyway!), so very warm welcome to you, and thanks very much, look forward to seeing you soon!!
The full list of volunteers this week, since they all deserve a shout, is: Linda ALLEN, Michelle BRADLEY, Ian BRINKLER, Jake BROUGHTON, Karen E BROUGHTON, Catriona BUCKLEY, Charlie COLLIN, Tom ENGLAND, John ENGLAND, Nick HILL, Max HILL, Madeleine HORRIGAN, Sarah HORRIGAN-FULLARD, Louise KELLY, Emily RATCLIFFE, Matthew RATCLIFFE, Louise RATCLIFFE, Isabella RIELEY, Jonathan TANNER, Joanne TANNER, Zoe TANNER, Ewan WANE
By 9 o'clock our willing runners, and wonderful parents had gathered in their masses, and we were ready to start the pre-run announcements (yes, sorry, I'll try and do it faster next time ! :-))
There were milestones reached by Evelyn and Sophie, who received Half-Marathon wristbands as a reward for completing 11 runs at Gedling Juniors. Very well done both of you !
Don't forget you can print off your certificate to show all your friends at school what a fabulous runner you are! Just ask a parent to log in to your parkrun profile to print it off.
Once again Ewan led the warm up, which proved very popular !
There were 64 children, and countless parents joining them so it was a great turn out, once again! There were 12 personal best times , and 9 first timers, so welcome one and all !
We look forward to seeing you all next week, when Jonathan will be Run Director, at our wonderful, scenic , parkrun!
