Battery Park junior parkrun, event number 107, September 17

A TOTAL of 26 hardy runners took part in junior parkrun on a very wet Sunday morning.

Two runners, Oscar and Charlie, achieved new PBs. There were four Battery Park first timers - Emilie, Lucas and Zara were running in their first ever parkrun, and Tom was running in his second event.

There were two volunteer milestones, with Caleb Freeman volunteering for the tenth time, and run director Sandra Campbell for clocking up her half-century.

In a time of 07:16, Louis Reid was first to complete the course. Noah Carroll was next (08:11) with Elijah Taylor (08:21) completing the top three boys.
