Event 83 – Teamwork

Wardown junior parkrun - event 83

This week we were joined by an amazing 37 incredible finishers and 16 super volunteers for event 83.  As your RD this week, I wasn't feeling on top form but I was determined to provide a happy, safe and enjoyable event for each one of our children. I couldn't have managed this without the support of every single volunteer who made up our team for this week's event. It really is true when they say that teamwork makes the dreamwork. Thank you all once again.

Our 15th non-parkrun event – Our 2nd birthday! 1st July 2020

Happy birthday to us!

Happy birthday Wardown junior parkrun!

Happy birthday to us!

Celebrating our first birthday last year was definitely very different to celebrating our second this year. There wasn't any banners, balloons, cakes, sweets and most importantly the wonderful children and adults were missing from Wardown park with party hats waiting for their pictures to be taken.

We did however have a few birthday messages and a hand drawn card from Thomas (future Run Director).

A big happy 2nd birthday to our very special junior parkrun from yours truly. I am proud of each and every child that has participated in the 80 events we have held so far. We wouldn't have been able to hold these events without the amazing volunteers and I'd like to express my sincere gratitude for the time you have given so freely.

And last but not least a big thank you to the wonderful core team that make up our junior parkrun family. We will make our 3rd birthday the best ever!

Stay alert - look after yourselves and look out for each other ♥
