Junior parkrun in Weston - Info and help wanted

02/09/2015 22:48:58

With the need to get more families engaged in physical activity North Somerset Council are pushing ahead with the planning of a junior parkrun in Weston-Super-Mare. It will be taking place at Drove Road every Sunday at 9am and is open to all children between the ages of 4-14yrs (mums or dads or both are asked to run with small children). A date has not been set for the first run as they are currently busy planning the event with the support of Weston College students.

If there are any WAC club members who are interested in getting involved with the initial planning of the event then please get in touch with Kira Thorpe who is running with this for North Somerset council. I am sure that once the event gets underway many of you will be only too happy to help out every now and then to make the event a success.
