Sisters keep it in the family at Bramley Junior Parkrun

Words: Jean Hollings

Sisters Danielle Hutchinson and Vickie Jamieson have taken over the leadership of Bramley Junior Parkrun.

Vickie said:

“It’s the happiest way to start a Sunday morning, the children have such enthusiasm you can’t help but enjoy taking part.

“Parkrun has given me so much, I know the huge benefits it can provide participants and volunteers so I wanted to become part of the parkrun family to help introduce others so they can experience the same thing.”

How do children join junior parkrun? 

Please register at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ and print off your barcode before you start. Then remember to bring it every time you attend. 

Your child can start to achieve wristbands for attending.

If you are a parent or guardian you can run with your child or you are welcome to volunteer while your child is running.
