Four new faces turned up for the latest junior parkrun held in Weston, with 45 taking part in total.

It was a damp affair for the 66th outing of Weston junior parkrun, with 45 juniors and 21 volunteers turning out sporting raincoats and umbrellas galore.

There were four first timers - Nathan Anelay, Jack Harris, Zara and Kyla Long. A half marathon wristband (11 junior parkruns) was awarded to Zackary Vincent and a marathon wristband (21) was awarded to Connor Price.

First male and female finishers were the familiar faces of Charles Broadhurst (7.51) and Poppy Burton-Dickie (8.06) and despite the rain three runners - Rhys Anelay, Luke Carratt and Megan Board managed to set new PBs.

It was great to see so many youngsters enjoying the parkrun in the rain with lots of smiling faces and a massive thank you to the fabulous volunteers.
