junior parkrun contestant Zach Yeung completed a unique double, completing 100 junior and adult 5k races.

The 77th junior parkrun in Weston took place on a dry, but cold day. The course was muddy and slippery in places, but this did not deter the 53 runners from successfully completing the course.

Congratulations to April and Summer Ford for completing 11 junior parkruns. The first male today was Charles Broadhurst (07.32) and first female Poppy Burton-Dickie (8.28).

There were two first timers: Harry Shallcross and Bradley Reynolds, with five of the regular runners setting new personal bests.

Last but not least, an incredible accomplishment was achieved by Zack Yeung, who not only completed 100 junior parkruns, but also completed 100 adult 5k parkruns the day before at Burnham.
