The 114th junior parkrun was held at Walford Avenue, with Stephanie Brooks coming home first.

Forty-six keen juniors turned up to a dry September Sunday morning at Walford Avenue for the 114th junior parkrun.

There were three first timers joining the event - Skye, Pierre and Raphael and the organisers hope to see them again.

Congratulations went to Jacob Forsebrook who has run the equivalent of a half marathon while running.

It was an all girls affair at the front of the run with Stephanie Brooks being the first finisher in a personal best of 7.56. Sophie Carratt finished next in 8.30 followed by Zachary Yeung finishing in 8.38.

There was a total of nine PBs, an amazing effort by those runners, but parkrun is also about the enjoyment of running. It does not matter if you come in first, last or in the middle as long as runners enjoy their run.

As always thanks goes to all volunteers who without them the event could not go ahead every Sunday.
