It was all about the numbers 2, 1 and 4 at Hilly Fields parkrun on 21st July. It was our 214th event. 114 junior parkrunners ran, jogged and walked the 2 laps of the park. 24 got a brand new personal best and another 24 volunteers helped to make it all happen. Thank you to Adam Cole, Agnes Stanley, Amanda Dominy, Andrew Mundy, Anya Quiney, Cameron Livingstone, Clare Griffiths, Darryl Chamberlain, Frankie Campbell, Freya Wrake, Glenn Hancock, Isaac Mathers, Jala Aldous,  Kev Wrake, Layla Mathers, Luke Hodgson, Mary Hodgson, Mateo Mathers, Robin Morgan, Sam Broderick, Scott Koronka, Sharon Stanley, Sheonaidh Johnston, Sky London, Suzanne Spalding.

Special mention to the volunteers who picked up litter from around the course before the run started this morning.

We will be holding junior parkrun events every Sunday through the summer holidays. Please let us know if you know you are coming along and can help out. It's great fun and a fantastic way to start the day. If you are able to help Jacqueline next Sunday please get in touch with her at hillyfieldsjuniors@parkrun.com or via our socials. Thank you in advance.

Have a great week, and I hope to see you at Hilly Fields junior parkrun again next Sunday.

Run report for event 210 – 23rd June 2019.

This mornings event was a record breaking one. It was our biggest attendance to date (273), and also our second largest number of first timers (65) since our inaugural event in May 2015.

As part of our outreach into local primary schools, we welcomed over 100 children and their parents/carers from Gordonbrock School in Ladywell this morning. Gordonbrock School is less than half a mile from our start line but only a few of their school community attend Hilly Fields junior parkrun each week. As a result, many of the children ran 2km for the first time today. We hope to see lots of you back in future weeks.

Well done to the 46 finishers who ran, jogged and walked a shiny new personal best time today too. Massive thanks as always to the 32 volunteers, many of whom volunteered for the first time as well. We hope to see lots of you back again running, jogging, walking or volunteering with us next week.

Run report – 30th December 2018

Hello, my name is Jake and I have done 142 junior parkruns at Gedling, Long Eaton, Rushcliffe and Hucknall juniors in Nottingham where my grandparents live, Highbury Fields, Mile End and Brockwell juniors as well as Norwich juniors while we were on holiday in Norfolk a few years ago. I have run Hilly Fields 126 of the 142 that I have run.

I have also volunteered at Hilly Fields over 50 times and today on the 30th of December I finished all of my volunteering for my Bronze DofE award. Therefore I intend to start running again next Sunday.

This morning it was quite dark, there was a little bit of rain and mud around the course but that didn’t stop the 85 amazing runners that woke up extra early to go for a run with their friends. There were 2 first timers and 5 tourists along with 12 people that achieved a PB today. There were also 30 volunteers that helped make this event happen. Thank you to Adam, Amanda, Andrew, Cameron, Claire, Edward, Eloise, Eric, Frankie, Glenn, Heather, Jake, James, Jennifer, Joseph, Jude, Kate, Kev, Laura, Layla, Lew, Linda, Lisa, Nick, Philip, Robin, Sharon, Sky, Suzanne and Zoe.

Thank you for reading and me and everyone else at junior parkrun will see you in the café next week.

These are some pictures that I took today.
