As you may or may not be aware, a new Junior Parkrun has just started in Swansea called the Swansea Prom Junior Parkrun and is ideal for children of primary school age to get more active, hence our email to your school.
The Junior parkrun is specifically for children 4 to 14 years, and is held every week at 9am Sunday morning, by the old Café 360 (i.e. Secret café) by St. Helens rugby ground in Swansea.
The junior parkrun in Swansea is a marshalled 2k distance (2 laps of 1k), so your pupils can do it on their own or joined by their parent(s) or guardian(s). It is also accessible to all, as it is a flat hard footpath. We also hope to ask at future events which schools the children are coming from and publish each week.
In order to further raise the profile of the event, the Swansea Junior Parkrun team would therefore be grateful if you could communicate this message to your parents and pupils via social media or newsletter in a similar content style to below
“Swansea Bay Junior Parkrun : 9am Each Sunday – Cafe360, St Helens (4 to 4 years welcome and volunteers)
For Pupils: Just register in advance with a Parkrun barcode and then turn up at 8:50 for the 9am start.
For Everyone else: Volunteering help from any Adults or young adults are also
welcome. So If you would like to volunteer, please email swanseaprom- firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know which dates you can help out, as there are a variety of roles to assist with on the day.
