Another brilliant morning for running today saw 36 young juniors take to our course to give their best. Joining us today for the first time were 5 new runners. Congratulations to Harsimran Bhangu, Amber Elwood, Lois Richardson, Dylan Eaton and Oscar Eaton - do come back again soon.
Well done to Callun Francis who received his half marathon wristband for completing 11 junior parkruns - and well done to your dad and grandad too for keeping up with you!
Our first finisher today - Eddie de Souza - was joining us for his last junior parkrun before turning 15. He has come a long way since event #102 which was his first junior parkrun where he managed a time of 9.36. Today he ran the third fastest time ever on our course in a new PB of 7.06. Congratulations Eddie and do keep enjoying your running.
We saw some other brilliant PB's this morning too so huge congratulations to:
Olivia Forrest - a 7 second PB
Daniel Aiyewumi - a 14 second PB
Louis Geater - 3 PBs in 3 weeks - 18 seconds today
Liam Cole - 2 minutes and 6 seconds off his 2019 time
Emily Brewington - a 31 second PB
Jude Crawley - a 52 second PB
Sahib Bhangu - 2 PBs in 2 weeks and 48 seconds quicker today
Finally - we talk every week about how amazing our volunteers are but this week we really wanted to highlight how amazing Dave Keeley is. An active part of both the Harrow Lodge parkrun and junior parkrun since both started - in fact neither would have started without him - he has now sailed past the milestone of 500 volunteering credits which is a remarkable achievement. We know he has done a lot for runners in Havering for many years and we are incredibly proud that he is part of our team. Thank you Dave.
See you all next Sunday
