Event 167 – 18th August 2019

It was a warm, bright and sunny day for this weeks Gedling junior parkrun, which saw 51 runners (as well as several parents) smile their way through the course.

This week, Charlotte, Finlay and Isla all completed their first junior parkrun, and Scarlett earned her half-marathon wristband. We also saw 9 people set a new PB, so congratulations to Elijah, Oliver James, Hannah, Sadie, Henry, Archie, Dylan, Sophia and Ruby. Our first finisher was Lewis, whilst Talitha was the first female finisher.

Our traditional pre-run warm-up was led by myself (Ewan) and Sammy.

Of course, the event can’t happen without the volunteers so thanks to Catriona, Ciaran, Clare, Damian, Evie, Frances, Helen, Henry, Ian, Jake, Jenny, Karen, Linda, Madeleine, Madeleine, Matthew, Mhairi, Nick, Nick, Oliver, Richard, Rory, Sammy, Sarah and Sharon for wearing the high-vis this week. Also, an extra big “Thank you!” to Sarah, who, as well as being our Volunteer Co-Ordinator, has now volunteered at 250 various parkrun events. We are always looking for new volunteers, so please consider it if you are free on a Sunday morning.

Your run director next week, and for the first time, is going to be Sammy.
