While the weather was definitely milder than last week, that also meant the return of the mud at Harrow Lodge Junior parkrun. Despite this, 69 enthusiastic young runners turned out to complete the course.
We were pleased to welcome some first timers to our course. A big parkrun welcome to the Williams, Bere, Powell and Dungate families. We hope to see you back running with us again in weeks to come!
Congratulations to our wristband recipients this week. Half marathon wristbands (for completing 11 junior parkruns) were awarded to Millie Cook, Anastasia Phillips and Cooper Rodwell; all of whom have been running consistently at Harrow Lodge juniors since last autumn.
Massive thanks as always to all our volunteers. We can’t stress enough that this event really cannot run without you. If you haven’t volunteered yet please do consider doing so one week, we’re all very friendly, honest!
Moving on to our PBs for the week. Well done to:
Abigail Rogers - 4 PBs in 4 runs, and another 12 seconds off her time this week.
Brothers Joshua and Samuel Donegan – another PB this week for both boys with 9 seconds off for Joshua and 18 seconds for Samuel.
Anastasia Phillips – powered by her new wristband she took a great 48 seconds off her previous best.
Joel Hutton – returning to Harrow Lodge after a 5 year break, and taking 24 seconds off his time – welcome back, Joel!
Isabelle Wilkins – 35 seconds off her previous best – great running!
Zoe Jones – taking a huge 56 seconds off her time – keep it up!
Eva Abdelhameed – super running today and a great 55 seconds faster.
Thanks again to everyone who attended today. Look forward to seeing you next Sunday. A reminder that, due to the mini-marathon trials taking place in the park on the same day, we will be looking to start our event promptly at 9:00 – so don’t be late!
