Jack is about to reach 25 parkruns, which is absolutely fantastic! He turns up every week to parkrun / junior parkrun and training. He always has a smile on his face no matter what the weather!
I like how Jack always tries to do his best.
Michael joined in September and since then has completed every race. My nomination is specifically because he has at park run and another race run with a younger member to help them and get them round. This has meant his times have not been his best, however his attitude has been what the running club is really about.
Always turns up with a smile, and gives 100% on a Wednesday night (Tegan runs with the ‘returner’s run’ and encourages the adults also running this). and the events she competes in – Tegan has completed many junior parkruns, 5K parkruns as well as a variety of junior races and improved her times significantly in 2021.
In [a fellow junior’s] words… “I think Lucas should win, for 3 reasons: 1. He’s really fast, 2. He’s really friendly, 3. He helps me get around the 5K parkrun.”
He’s a good runner and he’s super fast. He’s a good friend, he always plays with us and encourages us. He’s always at training and always gives his all with a constant smile on his face.
Because he has done his first parkruns this year and when he fell over he managed to carry on and finish the parkrun.
She’s a fast runner, but always encourages others too and always has a smile on her face.
