Hi all, unfortunately the run today, 18th March 2018 has been postponed until next week.
The course is relatively ok to run and I’m happy that it’s safe, but the roads, even the main roads nearby are quite bad and I don’t want people taking the risk.
Sorry for contributing to today’s ‘snowflake’ society but it’s a must! Get them out building snowmen instead!!
This week we welcomed first timer Euan who had a fantastic run, coming in just under his expected time of 10 minutes, very impressive!
We also had a fantastic 3 personal bests achieved!
Here is Oliver, celebrating with P.B. Paddington
after getting his third consecutive PB; a 100% record so far! Continue reading “11TH FEBRUARY 2018”
Sorry to announce but the run for 4th February has to be cancelled 🙁
All 3 of the admin team are away at a race and we’ve only had 5 volunteers come forward in advance.
It’s really a shame to have to stop the kids from doing something that’s so easy, so free, so beneficial and so accessible!
Please help us out in future by letting us know when you can volunteer!
A big thanks to Rob, Candy, Clare, Holly & Gareth for volunteering 🙂
Thank you to everybody who made today another good morning for the kids of the Potteries!
We welcomed another new comer, Tara who won the bet with Continue reading “28th January 2018”
Don’t forget, there won’t be a PAK run this Sunday 21/1/18 as we will be at the Kidsgrove 10K but fear not, there is a fun run!!
The fun run will start just after the second adult race has started, around about 11:10 am.
Once the kids have finished, we will give them a Cadbury selection box – IF YOU DON’T WISH YOUR CHILD TO BE GIVEN ONE PLEASE MAKE US AWARE.
Thanks to Oscar & Ben’s dad, Laurence Regan, we have the selection boxes for free!
Entries for the fun run will be taken on the day. If anybody can’t afford the entrance fee, Potteries Active Kids have the ability to pay for your child so please let me know on the day, I will be confidential. Don’t be too proud!
Well done to all of the fantastic kids that joined us for their first run of 2018 🙂
A massive thank you also to the marvelous volunteers that gave their time to stand in the cold to let them!
We had 12 runners this week, and there times are here; Continue reading “7th January 2018”
Great news, whilst Goals is closed for business over Christmas, Potteries Active Kids is still going ahead!
Santa’s elves have worked out a safe and scenic route and you never know, the man himself might even make an appearance!
We won’t be meeting in the usual place, this time we will be meeting in the car park opposite McDonald’s on Leek New Road.
The start will be 30 seconds walk away from the car park, and the run will be finishing at the car park so you should all be able to see the kids pass at least twice!!
Please come and join us and help the kids have a brilliant time!!
Unfortunately due to the weather conditions, we have made the decision to cancel the run on Sunday 17th December.
We were out checking the course a few times on Saturday throughout the day and we’ve decided it best to cancel in advance.
We hope you understand!
Today was slightly wet and dreary but the sun was shining in the efforts of the kids!!
We only had a slight 12 runners in the run and again a great marshal turnout and to all of those who did turn up, a special thank you and well done!! Continue reading “26th NOVEMBER 2017”
