Last sunday saw the launch of a brand new 2k Junior parkrun for 4-14yr olds at Colliers Moss.
A spokesperson said “We couldn’t have asked for better weather conditions on Sunday, for the launch of Bold Forest Junior Park Run. We had an unexpected 44 junior runners, full of smiles, thumbs up and most importantly lots and lots of High Fives all around the course. Our volunteers live for High Fives”
“Just seeing the juniors enjoying the run and really getting into the parkrun spirit, brought home exactly why we all get involved in parkrun and why we volunteer our time. It was fantastic to see.”
“We had an incredible 26 volunteers on the day – all doing a brilliant job. Thank You All.”
“We would like to give a big shout out of Thanks to The Bandstanders from St Helens parkrun, who have supported us throughout this journey. You guys are the best”
“Big thank you also to Jo Jones and the Widnes junior parkrun team who have also supported us with team training and general help and advice too”
