A small March run!

Temple Newsam junior parkrun #256 15.03.20

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #256.

It was a chilly but dry morning as we welcomed 23 of you to Temple Newsam for a run round the park, 13 boys and just 8 girls. In a break with tradition, there were no first timers joining us today, something which hasn’t happened for about 3 months!

There were 6 amazing PBs this morning, a huge round of applause for Connor Laurie, Katie Vernon, Robyn Howard, George Bradley, Finley Fox and Bella Oldfield.

Congratulations to Alex Edmondson who joined the Marathon Club (21 junior parkruns) this morning. Well done to you! Don't forget that club wristbands are given out at parkrun while certificates can be found in your individual profile.

It’s 15th March today, so we’ll ‘shine the spotlight’ on our 15th place finisher this morning: Bella Oldfield. Today was Bella’s second junior parkrun. She runs in the JW10 category and today she was the 4th girl to cross the line in a time of 16:53, a new PB which took 35 seconds off her previous time! Fantastic running Bella, we hope to see you again soon here at Temple Newsam!

Thanks as always to all of our brilliant volunteers today: Zak BRITTON, Benjamin CLAY, Anthony CRONSHAW, Kate CRONSHAW, Sarah CRONSHAW, Andy CULLEN, Sophie CULLEN, Georgina DUNCAN, Violet GILL, Paul GRAHAM, Michael HIGGINS, Alison HUNTER, Annette MCTAGGART, Brian MCTAGGART, David John OWEN, Rachel OWEN, Neil PRICE, Anna SHARROTT, Gareth WELLS. And congratulations to Rachel Owen who completed her first event as Run Director today!

Would you be able to volunteer next week and help us to run our original course again? We need to know by Friday evening each week that we have enough volunteers to cover the event. If we have 13 marshals, we will run the original course. If not, we will use the new “back-up” course that we trialled earlier this year.

Preferably email us at templenewsamjuniors@parkrun.com with your name and parkrun number or leave a message on Facebook and then you can be added to the roster. If you are not already registered with parkrun, just visit parkrun.org.uk

We were delighted to welcome 6 first timers this morning: Lauren Donnell, John Clark and Lola Marquis-Linley, who were all running their first ever junior parkrun; and Thomas Hetherington, Bella McAllister and Skyla Sutcliffe, who were all running at Temple Newsam for the first time.
