Aylesbury junior parkrun volunteers

Junior parkrunners need to be registered before their first visit - see www.parkrun.org.uk/aylesbury-juniors/

The event is completely free, but remember to bring the junior parkrunners barcode.

Participants should arrive 10 to 15 minutes early for the pre-run briefing and warm-up routine.

Over the weeks, junior parkrunners can achieve various milestones.

Junior parkrunners can collect wristbands over the weeks they take part

Finishing 11 junior 2km parkruns is the equivalent to completing a half marathon and is rewarded with a wristband.

Finishing 21 junior parkruns is equal to completing a marathon and is rewarded with a wristband.

Finishing 50 junior parkruns is rewarded with an Ultra wristband, and finishing 100 junior parkruns is rewarded with a certificate.

Aylesbury junior parkrun is organised and run by volunteers every week, and would love to welcome more volunteers to help out.
