This Sunday, 18th September, the 1st Blaby Brownies have teamed up with Junior Parkrun to stage a special running challenge for all Brownies and Rainbows members.
By taking part in the Junior Parkrun at Aylestone Park this Sunday, 9am in their Brownie/Rainbow/Guides uniform girls will get a special commissioned badge as well as experience a great, fun activity. Those taking part do not have to have been to a Parkrun before, although below are details for registering.
By registering runners are given an official time. The event is totally free and is fully marshalled by accredited supervisors. Junior Parkrun is for all children aged 4-14 and it is not organised as a race but a timed run where children aim to improve on their personal performance. We already have several Year 6 children attending Parkrun – it would be great to have as many children as possible there. Anyone can attend on Sunday whether they are girls or boys – Mr Short will be there marshalling and he may give out House Points to any Pastures children he sees!
It really is a fun event with no pressure on performance – you can even walk if you want! Parents can run with their children too so it can be a real family activity.
Please see me if you have any questions – I look forward to seeing lots of you there!
