A Bright May Morning

 

Temple Newsam junior parkrun   #258       02.05.2021

Hello everyone. Welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #258.

On a cold but bright morning for the beginning of May we welcomed 38 runners, 22 boys and 15 girls, (one unknown) all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, some ready for another run and others arriving for the first time.

There were 7 first timers today. Welcome to Savannah Swift, Daniel Grace, Lily Mae Swift, Isaac Atkinson, Louis Coyne, Joseph Asprey and Charlotte Marshall . We hope you enjoyed your run and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

There were a fantastic 15 PBs today. Well done to Seth Miller, William Armstrong, George Bradley, Benjamin Merriman, Rosie Shicluna, Ruby Darley, Finley Fox, Dylan Spencer, Martha Coyne, Joshua Flockton, Oliver Wray, Ralphy King, Samuel Pailing, Sienna Vidal and Molly Dawe. Awesome running!

Congratulations to Dylan Spencer who joined the Half-Marathon club (11 junior parkruns) today. You can collect your club wristband at your next parkrun and don’t forget your certificate can be found in your individual profile.

Apologies to Imogen Jellett who joined the Marathon club (21 junior parkruns) last Sunday but was omitted from the Run Report. You can collect your club wristband at your next parkrun and don’t forget your certificate can be found in your individual profile. Congratulations!

This week our Alphabet Athletes is focusing on the letter B. Benjamin Merriman is the first on the list alphabetically.

Today was Benjamin’s 80th junior parkrun, all at Temple Newsam. He runs in the JW10 category. Benjamin was the 4th boy across the line and he finished in 4th overall position in a time of 09:58 which was a PB, taking 19 seconds off his time last Sunday, which was also a PB. Benjamin has also completed three 5K parkruns at Temple Newsam. Well done!

Many thanks to all the amazing volunteers

Temple Newsam junior parkrun   #257       25.04.2021

Hello everyone. Welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #257

What a wonderful spring morning for the relaunch of our junior parkrun. It was a fine bright dry morning and we welcomed 49 runners, 24 boys and 24 girls, (one unknown) eager to enjoy the freedom of being able to run around the park again after just over a year.

There were 18 first timers today. Welcome to Sophie Brady, Annabel Herrington, Toby Noyes, Hugo Pauley, Phoebe Waines, Annie-May Bew, Joshua Flockton, Samuel Pailing, Zachary Beckett, Oliver Newey, Jack West, William Wray, Archie McDougall, Imogen Waines, Maisie Angove, Molly Dawe, Grace Emilia Wallace and Ivy Newey. We hope you enjoyed your run and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Well done to William Wilson, Samantha Taylor, Evan Cullen, Benjamin Merriman, Matilda Baxter, George Bradley, Frey Cherrett, Thomas Asprey, Ruby Darley, Jasmin Hussein, Issaq Hussein, Harvey Starks, Clara Merriman, Carrie Harford-Cross, Florence Duncan, Oliver Wray, Christian Sutcliffe, Sienna Vidal and Georgia Richardson. Well done!

Congratulations to Issaq Hussein who joined the Half-Marathon club (11 junior parkruns) today. You can collect your club wristband at your next parkrun and don’t forget your certificate can be found in your individual profile.

Special congratulations must go to Imogen Hartley who courageously completed the course on crutches in 21:57 only 4:03 outside her PB time. Fantastic!

A huge thank you to Annette McTaggart who, having written over 100 run reports, whether she was at the event or not, has decided to step down. If anyone feels they would like to take up the baton please contact us at templenewsamjuniors@parkrun.com

Alphabet Athletes. As we re-open we are changing the focus from the date to the alphabet to promote greater inclusivity. As there are only a maximum of 31 days in any month this limits the scope of who can be included to the first 31 finishers so Shine the Spotlight is becoming Alphabet Athletes.

This morning, beginning with the letter A, Amalie Merriman is the first on the list alphabetically.

Today was Amalie’s 25th junior parkrun, all at Temple Newsam. She runs in the JW10 category. Amalie was the 6th girl across the line and she finished in 16th overall position in a time of 12:32 just 27 seconds outside her PB time. Well done!

Many thanks to all the amazing volunteers

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!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Temple Newsam junior parkrun weekly newsletter for event #254.

It’s the first day of spring today and for a change we had no rain, but it was windy and cold, and we even saw a few glimpses of the sun! It was lovely to see all the daffodils and crocuses bursting into flower as we arrived, and it was fantastic to see 52 of you join us at Temple Newsam this morning.

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.
