Emily wins Cambridge Junior Parkrun

Last Sunday (21st Sept) saw Emily Wake-Primett from our club win the Cambridge Junior Parkrun held at Milton Country Park. The BRJ Junior won the race in a new personal best time of 7 minutes 49 seconds which is just 13 second outside the course best time for this event. As Emily has been making rapid progress in reducing her personal best times it might only be a short time before Emily takes the course record for the Cambridge junior Parkrun.

The Junior Parkrun is quite a new thing Sundays race being only the 10th that has been held. It is proving a popular event though, with 125 children taking part in the 2k run this week.

Beatrice Pauley was the second under 10 girl home and Dominic Pauley was 3rd in the under 10 boys category.

Well done to Emily, Beatrice and Dominic.
