Buckingham Parkrun Takeover!
On Sunday we helped Buckingham Junior Parkrun break its attendance record! 110 young people aged between 4 and 14 completed the 2k course in Bourton Park. Pupils, parents and teachers of Buckingham Primary School took over many of the volunteering duties for the day and our Sports Organising Crew did a fantastic job with the pre-event warm up!
Mrs France said, "I have previously enjoyed the event with my own children and jumped at the opportunity for BPS to be involved."
Claire Hubner, Event Director, visited the school to lead an assembly, explaining to the pupils what Parkrun is all about which inspired so many to get involved.
Following the run, Claire said, “We are delighted with the support that the school have given this week, I hope that all of the runners and helpers enjoyed themselves and that they will become regular participants.”
We hope we will be able to support the event again before too long and look forward to seeing BPS children run regularly on a Sunday morning.
