parkrun profile: Cambridge juniors


 In Milton, just outside Cambridge, every Sunday morning you can find Cambridge junior parkrun. Sarah Lee from Cambridge juniors tells us more…


We love our event because it keeps our children active, has let us make lots of really good friends and makes us feel part of a welcoming community.




Our 2k course is beautiful woodland and really, really, really muddy in the winter!


There is the giant puddle / bog at Marshal point number 8… You go faster if you run straight through it!




I would invite any children and families in the area to come along and join us. We have every age of boys and girls, and all levels of speed of walkers, joggers and runners.


There are trees to climb beforehand, very friendly volunteers and delicious treats at the park café afterwards. The Grounds Café in the park does fantastic coffee.




All the volunteers are great. Our junior parkrunners enjoy coming – we have several who’ve been well over 100 times now!


Among our volunteers, we love that we get parents, grandparents, Duke of Edinburgh volunteers and local residents coming along to join in the fun.


And if you volunteer as Tail Walker, you get a choice of fluffy tail to wear!




We’ve seen people come to run who never thought they would be able to get round – parents in particular, running with young children.

They have never run before, yet because their child wants to run with them, it gives them motivation.
