One the loveliest things about helping at junior parkrun is the joy you see on (almost) all of the young runners. This morning, it was damp, there were puddles, and a bit of mud straying onto the path. Despite this, one young woman ran all the way round with a smile on her face. There are children being encouraged every step of the way by parents. And there are young people doing it all by themselves - marvelous! If you haven't helped out at junior parkrun before, give it try - be it as a marshal, giving out finish tokens, or any of the other important roles - it's a joy!
