EVENT 210 – 23rd December 2018
Swadlincote Juniors run report 23/12/18 – by Richard Hall
It was a cool 6 degrees; the skies had opened and to steal a quote from Sam the Run Director "The Christmas Elves were out with their water pistols!" But this didn't stop our brave volunteers who all looked very festive today in their Santa outfits. Even braver were our young runners who stepped up to the starting line for another junior parkrun...
The 35 runners set off at a quick pace and didn't let the rain bother them at all, some of them appeared to be enjoying it. The two laps were soon over with the first boy home finishing in 8 mins 27 secs and first girl in 8 mins 48 secs. Good times in any conditions!
There were 3 first timers today starting their respective parkrun adventures, 4 had achieved over 100 runs each and 2 new PB's! Everyone was greeted with some chocolates at the finish for their well deserved efforts.
We always need volunteers , follow the links on the website for the opportunities and dates available. If you volunteer 25 times you become eligible for 'the purple t-shirt'. You may have wondered how to get hold of one of these and become the envy of all your friends
So, as we approach the end of the year let's say thank you to all our volunteers who make these events possible and a big round of applause for all our junior runners. Merry Christmas and keep on junior parkrunnin'.
All the best and have a great Christmas!
