Park Run.

Park Run.


Forty two runners took part in the latest junior parkrun held in Weston.

The weather was on the juniors’ side at the latest Weston parkrun, it was sunny but not too hot, with 42 runners taking part.

There were four first time runners: Luca, Louis, Caitlin and Megan. Organisers hope they enjoyed their first parkrun and they return.

Congratulations go to Charles Broadhurst, who was the first male over the line (7.58), followed by first female Poppy Burton-Dickie in 8.21.

Three PBs went to Blake Wilkins (9.57), Luke Carratt (10.52) and Jay Campbell (11.27). A special mention goes to Dexter Cunningham, who sprinted over the finish line with the biggest smile of the day.
