FREE Monthly 2K Run

JAVR would like to thank the four organisations that have donated money to help establish the Junior AVR race. Proseus, Morrisons, Apetito and Avon Valley Runners have all made substantial donations to help pay for race equipment including electronic timing and a computer to help upload results directly to the web.

The Monthly Junior AVR race started in April 2012 and takes place at 10am on the last Saturday of each month at Southwick Country park. The race is for under 15 year olds and is 2km in length (just over one lap of the park) it is FREE to enter.

To enter: Just turn up at 9.40 enter the park by the parkrunner statue, fork left and the start is 200 metre up the slope. Please be careful when entering the park as the parkrun takes place at 9am on a Saturday and there may be runners on the pathways.

To volunteer: Just turn up at 9.30 and ask to speak to a Junior AVR official who should be wearing a Hi Viz "official" jacket.  Please let us know if you are volunteering by joining the Junior AVR Facebook page and posting or by e-mailing,
please put "JAVR" in the title.
