As was the same in the previous two years, 25 runners ran the first parkrun of the new year. Fin Harper finished first, like this time last year. But he was 21 seconds faster than a year ago.
Four runners achieved PBs and we had two first timers.
Don’t forget our party at 2.30pm in Underskiddaw Village Hall, Millbeck.
We have a new instagram page, where pictures can be seen from the events. This can be found here: @keswickjpr.
The results are processed and on the website now.
And there are more on this google photos page:
A call out to older children to come to Keswick junior parkrun. If you're a bit older, you might be thinking 2km is a bit too easy and you're regularly running the Saturday 5km event anyway. Well 2km is just another training tool in your armoury. A different animal to 5km. Our course record is 6:50, set by Charlie Neece on 28th July 2019. Other junior parkrun course records are sub-7 minutes. That could be something to aim for for older runners. Also a bit of competition makes it more interest and fun for all concerned.
As ever, though, junior parkrun is for all abilities. And we look forward to seeing you all on a Sunday morning.
We had another great show of volunteers today, but we're always after volunteers. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, send a message via our Facebook page or send us a tweet to @keswickjpr.
Champing at the bit
