Event 191 – The one where the storm clouds cleared

The Weather over the past few weeks has been nothing short of horrible meaning that the hills of Gedling haven't seen the Junior parkrun gang for the last couple of weeks, so we were all delighted when the clouds broke and the rain stopped just in time for us to get event number 191 underway this Sunday.  Ewan did a fantastic job in the Run Director's tent on Sunday, making sure that all the marshall slots were covered and we could go ahead safely.

The early morning rain didn't put 20 of you fabulous runners and some grown ups off, and a massive well done to Finn and Danny for achieving their personal bests over the 2Km course. Hopefully the weather will start to improve over the next few weeks, and we can all start to look forward to a sunny Sunday run/walk/jog!



Scarlett has been waiting 3 weeks to run her 50th with us here at Gedling and it was an absolute pleasure to present her with her wristband. Congratulations!


In spite of the rain, we also had a great bunch of volunteers turn up to marshall, keep time, scan barcodes and manage the funnel. I know we mention them often but the event really couldn't happen if we didn't have them on board, so a huge Thank You, to anyone who has ever donned the high Viz. If you want to get involved and join the team of volunteers, let us know via our facebook page or by emailing the team gedlingjuniors@parkrun.com.


We hope those of you who have been back to school after half term have had a good week so far, and we look forward to seeing you at Gedling Country Park again soon.
