British summer time

Good evening one and all.

Please remember to put your clocks forward tomorrow.



Cancellation 3rd February 2019

Hello parkrun family.

The decision has been made to cancel this Sunday's event due to the ice, snow and freezing temperatures. The children's safety and well-being is of the upmost importance and priority, as is their families and our committed volunteers. A huge thank you to the volunteers that added their name to the roster for this week ♥

Please take care, enjoy the snow - have fun - stay safe.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday 10th February.

**Sunday 3rd February**

Hello parkrun family. Rest assured we will be keeping a very close eye on the weather leading up to Sunday - updates will be posted on here and on Facebook. We will be inspecting the course on Saturday.

Thank you.


Happy New Year!

Wishing our parkrun family a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2019.

Looking forward to seeing you all for our first parkrun of this year on the 6th of January ♥


Happy Christmas


On behalf of the core team at Wardown juniors, I would like to send out a heart felt thanks to each and everyone of the volunteers who without them, we wouldn’t have a parkrun on Sunday mornings. Come rain or shine they roll out of warm beds to encourage and cheer on all the boys and girls who love to turn up each week.

I would also like to thank the superb core team of RDs who spend many unseen hours organising each event to ensure they run as smoothly as possible.
It takes some sorting out, ensuring that the roles are all covered, photos uploaded from our wonderful photographers and results are processed, not to mention the early risers who set the course up and ensure it is fit and safe for use.

Also the runners, walkers, pushed and self propelled chair users who brave the elements to try their best each week. Well done boys and girls.

We’ve had a few challenges this year, the fair has visited a few times and our course cuts right through the rides, every one did brilliantly to ensure it had little impact.

We also had a couple of extreme weather warnings which fortunately didn’t come to much, however everyone got a bit wet, and not to mention the Brent Geese we sometimes share the park with. They tend to move on once the children begin hurtling towards them.

In the new year we will have new challenges - The Bandstand is due to be built in the middle of our course. We are in the middle of plans to ensure it doesn’t stop us enjoying our Sunday mornings and as long as it’s safe, we will hold the event.

Lastly please try and bring a friend or two next year - the more the merrier and mums, dads, guardians and carers please look into joining our hi-viz heroes in 2019.  It’s easy and fun and a great little family atmosphere.

So from myself and the team Happy Christmas, and see you all for the last one of 2018.
