Hello, my name is Thomas and this week was a very special week at junior parkrun as there were many milestones celebrated. Firstly, it was mine, Grace and Eliott’s 50th junior parkruns. Amazingly, we were the first ever 3 runners to get to 50 at Wardown juniors. This is a great privilege and something I’m extremely proud of. Me and Eliott ran with balloons and had a banner. I really enjoyed this and have had some great battles with Eliott since my start of park running. This also included challenging each other for 1st place. Eliott I know you can get that first place and that McDonalds! In addition our wonderful RD Kathryn Ball did her 25th volunteering stint on Sunday. Well done Kathryn and thank you for your contribution to junior parkrun, you are one of the loveliest people at parkrun.
