Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun

Alice Holt parkrun has been cancelled by the Forestry Commission because work being carried out by their builders has resulted in part of our course being closed over the weekend.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Rushmoor parkrun is also cancelled for the whole of July.

 

278th Alice Holt parkrun run report

Wonderland?

Well we really enjoyed our visit to Alice Holt, very friendly, very lovely, and very welcoming. The Marshals all smiled and gave us plenty of encouragement.

Also we collected an A for our parkrun alphabet (just I & U for 3 of us for the UK alphabet, then maybe a trip to Poland for a Z??). If you don’t know about this then go to this episode Free Weekly Timed - The Bee Gees, the Seven Seas and Polish parkrun which you can find at parkrun podcast and they will explain!

We gather there were a few falls today, and though everyone was ok, the message from the event team is do watch out for the uneven ground as we all want everyone to run safely.

We have to say a nice surprise to get a 10% parkrun discount at the café – and an even bigger surprise to find volunteers can park for free (I had no idea honest when I said I’d do the report). So go ahead and volunteer folks, fill that roster up!

I suspect we came from far and wide! If you fancy a tour sometime, do consider Roundshaw Downs parkrun – we are a basic cross country course, with views over London on a clear day – and a 0.5k DOWNHILL finish. Try it, you might like it.

Lot’s of PB’s today as well, despite the hills – my wife said she kept hoping for a vehicle when we crossed big enough paths so she could stop and take a break!
Those PB’s then:
Sean HOLTOM
Olly MALKIN
Richard TURNER
Naomi HUNTLEY
Helen WALTERS
Rich PHILIP
Peter TEMPLE
Kay TOMLINSON

Just so many I can’t analyse them all, but I did chat with a very proud Dad in the café, who we had met briefly because of his Tourist Cow Cowl in the car park before the event – so a special mention to Olivia MEREFIELD-WHITE who ran a massive 13 minute course best time today. Very well done Olivia, great running.

Milestones:
Well done to Steve Armstrong [Ed's note - nice to have you, Laura and Ethan with us today - we've missed you!] as well as Derek & Julia Graham– all joining the 100 club today.
50 up for John Thorpe – well done sir. And a junior 10 for Matt Spencer – excellent running Matt, Steve, and John, who are on the PB list as well.
Also a Flake run for Elliot Moore – so 100 soon.

We had a nice bike ride afterwards – and hope to be back to visit you again.

Lastly thanks to all those fab volunteers: Beth WHITE • Colin ADDISON • Craig TATE-GRIMES • Dan CLARKE • Dan ELLIOTT • Evelyn BURR • Gary JAMES • Gemma WHITEHOUSE • Imogen BARR • Jacob ROSEVEARE • Jane MOORE • Jasper HENDERSON • Jean DRUMMOND • Jemima HENDERSON • Jhon COSGROVE • Jo JAMES • Lisa BLAYDEN • Lucy BRAND • Lucy TUITE • Olivia MOORE • Patrick TUITE • Pip BARR • Richard BRAND • Rupert HOLLOM • Stephen LAVERY • Thomas BURR

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun on 24/03/18

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun

Due to another event taking place at Alice Holt Forest on 24th March, there will be no parkrun.

We've also been advised that Guildford parkrun is OFF on this date. You can see if any other parkruns in our area are not going ahead by looking at http://wiki.parkrun.info/index.php/Cancellations#United_Kingdom

It would be sensible to check individual social media pages before setting out to any parkrun as cancellations can occur at any point and may take time to appear on the main page.

Have a great weekend, see you back in the Forest as usual on 31st for our Easter weekend special!
