Event 72 – Purple Takeover

On the first junior parkrun of a new decade 38 top juniors took on our course, cheered on by our brilliant volunteers decked out wearing purple :)

I would like to thank my co run director Chloe, (who you all must admit) she did a brilliant job making sure this event went off smoothly!

The future is bright at Wardown with our juniors stepping up to the role of run director and are naturals in the process :)

Results

First boy finisher was Liam Neale in a time of 08:01 and first girl finisher was Sky Fisher-Eames with a time of 08:46, superb effort guys!!

Out of the 38 runners we had 5 first timers and 6 new shiny personal bests, well done everyone :)

Finally on the results this was the first time we tried out the official parkrun volunteer mobile phone app as a timer and used that data file to help process the results!

This week's event was given in tribute to all of the volunteers who have given up their time to make sure our juniors have a fun & safe event to run every week come whatever the weather throws at us!

For the record, it was Jessica's 25th separate volunteer day milestone, Elaine Withnail's 25th day at our juniors and my 100th with loads of cake and sweets available for everyone at the finish from me and Elaine!
