Tamariki takeover day 24/07/2021

Today started off to a funny start from our Junior run director, Sebastian Gatie. It was Cornwall Parkrun’s 9th birthday and to celebrate we had a junior takeover day. This week 232 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers and 18 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part. 

As the sun came through the fog, two 50 milestones were celebrated; Micheal Ludbrook and Christine Miller. Congratulations! Cornwall Park Parkrun managed to clear the rain last week and this week we got rid of the sun!

We all had lots of fun which made it a successful morning despite being quite foggy at the start. We also really appreciated the hot chocolates that were bought for us by Sania Smit and also the cakes that were provided by Helen Watson. 

At the Tamariki takeover we all enjoyed volunteering. If we can do it then you can do it too! If you are interested in volunteering, it will definitely help, so let the run director know (not the junior one!!!).
