I started this briefing about 5 times, thinking about how to write about one piece of information that we talk about every week. It is however as important as ever, especially with holidays, beautiful British summer that graced us this year and many many running events that are happening across the country. We cannot stage the Little Stoke juniors without you - our amazing parents, carers, friends. We need about 20 of you each week for the event to go ahead. Last week we had 4, including the Run Director; this meant we had to cancel and we did it with a heavy heart. If you know that you are able to help, let us know via Facebook, Instragram or email - firstname.lastname@example.org - we send emails every week so why not to go to your parkrun profile and sign up to our volunteer appeals? This week we had amazing response from Frampton Cotterell Harriers who took over nearly every role! Many thanks to everybody who volunteered today: Donna ABBOTT, Jo ASTLEY, Andy BARTON, Sarah BRADLEY, Paul BURGESS, Kate DALLAS, Chris FRENCH, Sarah HANDLEY, Emma HARDING, Emma HARDING, Anna LAMBOURNE, Andrew LAMBOURNE, Vesper LAMBOURNE, Molly OVENDEN, Katie PINNINGTON, Janet SMITH, Alan SMITH, Sophie SPARKS, Liz WINDETT
We have had a lot of new runners today. Big welcome to Joseph, Billy, Jack, Nathan, Olivia, Harry, Katelyn, Eliza, Ella, Asheligh, George, Emily, Eleanor, Isha and George - we hope you enjoyed your first Little Stoke junior parkrun and we cannot wait to see you again!
Congratulations to the new PBs go to Harry, Matilda, Hannah, Daniel, Theo, Noah, Jack, Enola, Joshua and Ruth!
We award milestone wristbands to those who run an equivalent of a half (11 junior parkruns) or full marathon (21 junior parkruns) and an ultra (50 junior parkruns). Congratulations to Isaac for collecting his orange ultra wristband, to Evelyn and Jack for collecting a full marathon green wristband! We are looking forward to seeing you all next week.
The cafe is now open in the park so why not pop in for a brunch or a cup of tea after the next event?
