TWO members of the Harlow junior parkrun core team were busy last week visiting three primary schools in Harlow to spread the word about how wonderful Harlow junior parkrun is!
The children at Katherines Primary Academy, Harlowbury Primary School and Pemberley Academy Primary School heard about how junior parkrun is a free, weekly timed 2km run in Harlow Town Park for children aged between 4 and 14.
They learnt about how they need to register in advance and print out their personal barcode to bring each week. Children from each school were chosen to take on the roles of the volunteers who help out every week. They were run directors, marshals, time keepers and more! They also heard about the wristbands given out to participants for various achievements.
Finally the children, and staff, joined in with the warm up they do each week before starting the run.
They are booked into three more school in the next few weeks and are happy to make more appointments if other schools would like them to visit.
Please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
They hope these visits mean lots of new faces in Town Park, by the Llamas at Pets Corner, on Sunday at 9am!! (Visit https://www.parkrun.org.uk/harlow-juniors/ for all details and how to register in advance)
