Fyfe Benner (age 7) was Run Director on the morning, assisted by his Dad, Damian (age 43). Fyfe took charge of assigning marshal positions, giving the run brief and making his mother proud, whilst his Dad did the lesser, more boring duties, such as overseeing H&S, processing the results and writing the run report.
You'll have noticed we had another under 11 volunteering this week, too, which was young Finn, who took the marshal spot on Bunny Corner, at the top of the hill with his Mum. If any other kids want to get involved like Fyfe and Finn, rocking the Hi Vis, just let us know.
The full volunteer team included a few people volunteering for the first time. I hope you all enjoyed it. We certainly appreciated your help!

We had some milestones this morning, with Ivy Miles collecting her half marathon wristband. Talitha Roberts and Daniel Charlton collected their marathon wristbands.
After expertly delivered the run brief, Francis, Archie and Ewan led the warm up
We were also joined by four first timers. Welcome Harry Walker, Charlotte Carter-Smith, Anais Schoeman and Belle Walton! Also, welcome back to Aurelia Cooney who completed her second run with us.
Fyfe got to do another important job, which was to set you all off running and 63 of you set off, many of you with your grown ups trying to keep up with you.
Despite the wind or maybe helped by it, 11 of you managed to achieve a new PB this morning.
That includes your first and second finishers Ben Taylor and Eddie Lowe. Both achieved new PBs of 07:18 and 07:25 respectively.
We had lots of fun waiting for you all back at the funnel.
We did have a few problems with some of the scanning, which can happen on busy and bright sunny mornings. If you think your result is missing, do let us know.
