This week's report by the Woodland Whippets.
On the 22nd of January, it was a freezing cold morning, but this didn’t stop 58 young runners from taking part in the Skelmersdale Junior Park Run.
We would like to welcome our 14 new comers, we hope you enjoyed the hilly course and we look forward to seeing you again.
Congratulations to Oliver Farrer and Chloe Gregory Moss for being the first male and female to cross the finish line.
We would like to applaud the 20 pupils that achieved a PB (personal best) despite the harsh weather conditions.A special mention goes to Isabella -Rae Holden and Nikki Schofield who have completed 11 Park Runs which is equivalent to half a marathon (22km). We encourage Blake Beach to take part in the Park Run next week as he will also reach his half marathon.
We would like to thank Woodland Community Primary School, for bringing 22 present and past pupils along to the Park Run. We encourage other schools to get their students involved.
Last but not least, a massive thank you goes to Paul and his team of marshals; your encouragement kept us going. We could not have done it without you!
Detailed results are here.
See you soon
