Event 437 – 30th June 2018

Good morning Albert parkrunners,

Well what a lovely, sunny parkrun we had this morning at Albert Park, lovely to sit and have a coffee at the end in the glorious sunshine.
Today saw the first outing of our new finish tokens and that they were all returned!!! Boom thankyou all. Thank you to the ladies who put in a donation towards them.
Few milestones this morning:
Kevin Atkinson completed his 100th run on his 50th birthday – Well done!
Steve Midgeley completed his 73rd run – everyone worth a mention

As we approach holiday season, the need for volunteers to come forward is most important as regulars will be away and we need to ensure we have the correct number of marshalls around the course as well as the core jobs of timekeeper, etc – So please let us know if you can assist email us as albertoffice@parkrun.com or leave comment/message on facebook.

Anyway onto today’s results and statistics:

Albert parkrun Event 529 – 5th May 2018

Good evening Albertparkrunners what a beautiful day it has been!

We have a fabulous morning at Albert parkrun brought to you by Steven King and his Team of smiling volunteers who clapped and supported you round the course today.

On the subject of volunteers, I have decided that I will just ask on social media if anyone can volunteer for the forthcoming week (or indeed any week) and fill the rota up that way. You can also email in to albertoffice@parkrun.com or put your name down in our volunteer book which is located on the scanning table. We will also mention it during the pre run announcements. As all Run Directors work full time we cannot be stressed in continually “begging” for volunteers and a decision will be made on the morning of the run as to whether we have enough to bring you the run that day. Hope you all understand.

We know there have been some issues today regarding times – we believe that some of the tags were stuck together and with this in mind I have already emailed HQ to enquire about purchasing new ones – I think we need them after 10 years don’t you. Please bear with us with this we try to have your times etc spot on.

Couple of milestones today:
Junior Runner Poppy Cross completed her 100th run today
The lovely Maggie Heppell completed her 250th run
Massive well done ladies and the cake was gorgeous!!

The last 6 months we have had some DOE boys from Acklam Grange School, they have now completed their allocated time needed. They have progressed from marshalling on the course to key roles such as timekeeper, token support and funnel manager. We would like to thank them all and wish them well, particularly Owne Enouch, Josh Richardson and Andrew Mogridge who coped very well today under pressure.

Lots of dates for you diary as things happening in Albert Park and organisations wanting to come down and be part of our fabulous event. (Here goes I was out of breath reading them all this morning)

Saturday 26th May – parkrun coincides with Dementia Week and the Middlesbrough Office would like to make it Dementia Friendly (to promote exactly what parkrun is about and that it is inclusive for everyone) – one of parkruns UK Charities is Alzheimer’s Research so it is a very worthwhile cause to raise. We could do cakes and maybe raise some money too.

Saturday 2nd June 2018 – Is Albert parkruns 10th Birthday! My goodness how time flies – we need a Theme of some sort – I looked on how many years of marriage the theme was and it is Tin or Aluminium?? Just a thought but any ideas please put forward

Also if there are any budding bakers out there it would be fab if someone could create a cake

Saturday 9th June 2018 – (Is not only a certain Event Directors Birthday) but the wonderful NHS is 70 years old – parkrun would like us to have a themed parkrun – I propose Doctors, Nurses and Patients! Should be fun

Saturday 12th August – Albert park itself is 150 years old – The park management have asked if parkrun could have a themed parkrun that morning – we will obviously oblige as the park’s staff are brilliant.

So onto today’s results:

Event 526 – 14/4/18

Good afternoon Albert parkrunners,

A fabulous parkrun yesterday brought to you by Louise and her Team of Volunteers. However, as you are aware now there was an issue with tags not being given out – Louise did her best to rectify mistakes to hopefully everybody is happy
.
However, there are a few things that I feel as Event Director I need to remind runners and volunteers of the protocol and rules of parkrun which make it easy to deliver our fab event to you week in week out.

Spitting – I said my piece yesterday on social media – if you did not see it we have a number of runners that spat as they crossed the finish line – one of which narrowly missed a volunteer. This is disgusting and if you must do this please do it on the grass area and not where people have to walk. If this happens again I will remove people from results.

Barcodes – These must be in paper form or credit or key fob size that can easily be scanned. We cannot accept barcodes from phones or if you have lost them or if you know the number. Yes we have done this in the past but parkrun HQ have now said NO BARCODE NO TIME

Volunteers – Albert parkrun cannot run without kind hearted people who give their time up to complete jobs to bring the event. Please try and join us one week to complete a job, I am sure you will enjoy it – I did offer that I am standing in for Karen on the 28 th April if anyone would like to be a shadow Run Director I am more than happy to show you the ropes – please email in or send message via social media if you can help.

Well done to our Grand National Sweep Winners they were Nicole Lackenby and Bill Fraser – Will bring prizes next week.

Next week sees our first person at Albert parkrun to complete 500 parkruns – Hopefully David Appleyard will be joining us to complete this fabulous achievement.

Now onto yesterdays statistics:
