On a surprisingly fresh morning, four Goodgymers put their best foot forward to help out at event number 103 for Florence Park Junior Parkrun.

In order to keep all the volunteers warm, Trev brought along his ukulele and instigated a complete rendition of the Hokey Cokey, complete with actions and lots of curious looks as people arrived in time for the start. Fashioning a vegetative hat, Trev also led the 1st timer's welcome for those coming along for their 1st parkrun or 1st parkun in Florence Park, of which there were several. Both Julia and Kieran clapped and cheered on super runners around the 2-lap course. Ben aided in the set up and led the event as the Run Director, armed with a whistle and first aid kit in case of any mishaps (thankfully, neither were required!).

70 youngsters completed the run and more wristbands handed out for those completing their half-marathon (11 junior parkruns) or marathon (21 junior parkruns). It was a super event and thankful for the efficient token sorting and clear up at the end to earn a warm cup of coffee.

Thanks to all those that helped out!!
