A new course record

Run 494 16/9/17

What a morning we had yesterday with great running conditions and a new course record. So a big congratulations to Cameron Boyek who beat the existing course record by 1 second to give a new course record of 14.29. An amazing achievement considering, by his own admission he is not at peak fitness at the moment and has promised to come back when he is to give the record another go. We look forward to seeing you soon Cameron.

We had just 1 milestone yesterday with Nicola Parkes completing her 150th run.

We also had a couple of birthdays for 2 of our regular runners. Ben Hodgson became a teenager on Friday and Nick Dent had his birthday yesterday. Happy birthday to you both.

A few stats.

We had 19 first timers who began their parkrun journey with us yesterday. I hope you all enjoyed your morning and we'll hopefully see you all again next week.

We had 15 first time visitors including a group from Newcastle Frontrunners and another from York parkrun, I hope you all enjoyed your visit to Albert park and we'll hopefully see you again soon.

Then we had 34 parkrunners who achieved a pb yesterday so well done to all of you.

One little hiccup that we nearly had was when a couple of runners ran through the finish but then refused to take a finish token. Can I please reiterate that if you go through the finish funnel you must take a token even if you do not wish to register your run as it throws out all the other results behind you and makes for a lot of extra work for the volunteers. Thankfully we managed to remove the tokens from the pile and keep the times in order but it is not fair to put additional pressure like this on the volunteers and can put people off volunteering if the jobs are made more difficult than they need to be so please help the volunteers keep the posts a simple as possible and don't be a 'funnel ducker'

Speaking of volunteers we struggled yesterday to fill our roster and it was touch and go as to whether we would have enough to go ahead so please consider giving a little back and if you have never volunteered before then give it a go, you will never be given a job that you are not comfortable with and it really is very rewarding. If every runner could volunteer 3 times a year then we would always have a full roster.

Thank you
Karen. x
