Another heart-warming Parkrun with students from school. I ran with Abdul (24 minutes), encouraging him to push on through a stitch, which he nobly did for the majority of the run. Esther ran with the girls, and tried to explain to them what a PHD was. Heather coached Yasir, and other runners supported us all through our struggles.
Parkrun is an oustanding thing for students to get involved in:
- Achievable (5km is accessible for all – nothing wrong with walking)
- Minimal admin from teachers – students just turn up and run!
