Well. I do hope all the wonderful volunteers, juniors and adults have dried out by the time you read this! I had a vain hope that perhaps the weather forecast was greatly exaggerated but… nope. Thank you so much to the fab 24 volunteers who filled up the roster by Thursday which is always a huge relief: Wai Meng AU-YEONG, Amanda BARNETT, Emily BARNETT, Matthew BARNETT, Richard BARNETT, Andrew COX, Helen COX, Imogen COX, Kezia ELLIOTT, Charlotte HAWES, Sarah HAWKINS, Annette HOWARD, Gary HOWARD, Ruth KENT, Chris LLOYD, Aimee PEACOCK, Mark PINNEY, Helen PLANT, Katie SWAINSBURY, Mark Anthony TRAVERS, Angela WILSON, Cameron WILSON, Campbell WILSON and Lucy WILSON. The next time we see Annette will be the 100th time she’s volunteered at Leavesden juniors; thanks so much for your awesome dedication! Aimee, who has been the fab volunteer co-ordinator for the last few weeks is making her run director debut next week so if you are able to volunteer, please email email@example.com; all roles are straight forward and you can start your Sunday knowing you’ve made it possible for 4-14 year olds to have their free 2km!
Thank you so much to this week’s volunteers!
25 juniors braved the conditions this morning (turning up in poor weather tends to mean a higher finish position which is a nice incentive!). I was very impressed with the Halloween outfits! Volunteer Charlotte led an excellent Halloween themed warm-up (complete with sound effects) before we set off. Maybe it was the relief of finishing but there were plenty of smiles at the finish line from the juniors; congratulations to Hector G and Hannah H who were first boy and girl and well done to Abigail L who ran a PB! I was happy to present Beatrix C with her marathon wristband (21 junior parkruns done!). Noah S is one junior parkrun away from his 50th which is super exciting!
Well done Beatrix on achieving your marathon wristband!
If your child has done 11, 21 or 50 junior parkruns, please do tell the Run Director (or drop us an email, Facebook message or tweet) so their wristband can be presented. Don’t forget you can download a certificate too (go to ‘manage your profile’ on their results email). While we are on the subject of emails, you can also ‘opt in’ to the Leavesden juniors email distribution list so we can contact you if we need volunteers or we need to contact you due to a results query etc.
Hope you have a safe, spooky Halloween evening, enjoy your return to school (bring your classmates to Leavesden juniors!) and see you next week!
