What a beautiful sunny morning it was at Gedling junior parkrun. With it being a cold night I was worried whether we would have to cancel due to ice. However with some extra cones and marshals on the course I decided that we were good to go.
96 juniors and their grown ups were definately ready to have a morning wake up walk, jog or run around Gedling Country Park. It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces this morning so thank you to you all for turning up. I understand that even the car park got full this morning so fingers crossed the work on the car park extension will finish soon.
We welcomed 9 first timers to parkrun so hello to Maya, Isla, Hanna, Poppy, Eva, Alfie, Olivia, Findley and Noah. Do come and see us again soon.
There were some milestone wristbands to hand out - Tallyn got his ultra marathon wristband (50 junior parkruns) and Sophie got her half marathon (11 junior parkruns). I also noticed that Marrissa should have got her marathon wristband so do let the us know next time you join us. Well done to you all.
There were PB's a plenty with 21 of you achieving your personal best time so well done to Archie, Isla, Imogen, Lily, Alexandra, Ruby, Georgia, Felix, Charlie, Evelyn, Adam, Oliver, Abigail, Isabella, David, Jodie, Jack, Madeline, Leo, Fyfe and Charley. Gedling junior parkrun has now had 1997 PB's so if you get a PB next week you have a chance of being our 2000th PB!
As always we can not go ahead without our fantastic volunteers in the hi-viz so a massive thank you to the ones who were already on the roster and the extras who helped last minute to be "ice marshals"!
