Event 277 Run Report

Despite the wind and rain, we welcomed 42 runners to Little Stoke for junior parkrun this morning. First timer Bibiane was the first across the line closely followed by Sebastian who, even before getting his breath back, took on the volunteer role of bar code scanner (thank you!). Toby and Emily brought our run to an end today with great times- well done. We also had another seven first timers- one who'd come from Gloucester and a phenomenal eleven personal best times!! Great running everyone and we're so impressed that the rain didn't put you off.

As always, thank you to our amazing volunteers today who braved the elements- two stepping up at the last minute. Thanks also to the parents who also offered to help while we were setting up and please let us know if you would like to volunteer at a future parkrun where you would be very welcome.

See you next week! Louise

 

Event 276 – Run report

Event 276 is complete with a sprinkling of rain and otherwise lovely running conditions. We had 28 runners including first timers, tourists, more returning 11 to 14 year olds, and milestones.

We had a photographer at this week's Little Stoke Junior parkrun and all photos can be found via this Flickr link.

Thank you to all the volunteers this week; we couldn't do it without you. We need around 20 volunteers each week to ensure the event can be run safely, so if anyone is able to volunteer for future weeks please view the future roster on our parkrun page and email littlestoke-juniors@parkrun.com.

Thanks everyone,

Dave

 

Event 275 Run Report

After the really hot weather last week, it was a little cooler for the Little Stoke Junior Parkrun today where the rain and thunder held off! We had 29 runners, with a few first timers and some visitors joining us from Kings Weston and Page Park who unfortunately had to cancel their events. It was nice to welcome back two 11 to 14 year olds who can now restart participating in Junior Parkrun following the restart of Parkrun yesterday. :)

Unfortunately some of the runners at the front took a wrong turn and ended up seeing a little more of the park than usual. This was quickly rectified and all runners completed the Junior Parkrun safely. The first runner to cross the line was super fast with 3 people recording personal bests today - well done to all who took part!

We had a photographer at this weeks Parkrun and all photos will be uploaded shortly.

Thank you to all the fantastic volunteers this week, all very helpful and supportive, we literally couldn't do it without you. We need around 20 volunteers each week to ensure the event can be run safely so if anyone is able to volunteer for future weeks please view the future roster on our Parkrun page and email littlestoke-juniors@parkrun.com.

Many thanks to all.

Event 273 Report

It was great to see so many happy faces running today, we hope everyone had a great time. Welcome to the 9 first time parkrunners and 3 running at Little Stoke for the first time. Special mention to two super keen 4 year olds running in their birthday week. We hope to see you all again soon. We also had 7 shiny new PBs.....I believe there was some sibling rivalry involved in at least one of them!

Congratulations to Sienna on collecting your well deserved and overdue half marathon wristband. We are not currently doing public milestone presentations for COVID reasons but if you are due one speak to the run director any week. Milestone wristbands are available for:

  • Half Marathon Club (anyone who completes 11 junior parkruns)
  • Marathon Club (anyone who completes 21 junior parkruns)
  • Ultra Marathon club (anyone who completes 50 junior parkruns)
