Five GoodGymers volunteered at Mowbray Park junior parkrun on a cold, but sunny, Sunday morning, helping 23 junior parkrunners enjoy their run.

Aimee was funnel manager, Richard was run director, while Tanya, Debbie and Michael were cheerful marshals. They helped contribute to a record-breaking number of volunteers at Mowbray Park junior parkrun. Thank you very much for your volunteering efforts, which really helped the event take place.

Many hot drinks and pastries were consumed afterwards and many words of chat were spoken, contributing to a delightful morning. Michael even managed to find his way back to his car afterwards without getting lost.
