Ally Pally parkrun CANCELLED – 3rd March 2018

Please be advised that we inspected the course this morning and have decided to cancel the run on Saturday 3rd March due to snow and ice on all our courses (main and alternatives) making it unsafe for parkrunners and volunteers. Apologies for any inconvenience caused but the health and safety of parkrunners and volunteers must come first. Please forward this message onto anyone who is thinking of coming to avoid disappointment.

Our plan is to return next week 10th March (weather permitting)!

Run 316- 17th February – Spring is (almost) sprung

We were blessed with a beautiful crisp and sunny day, with a promise of spring to come. The bottom of the park remains muddy so we were still on the Winter course, but were maybe able to see the light at the end of the winter tunnel.
Congratulations to Rosie Sheldon, regular run director, who was running her 200th parkrun. Andrew had put his secret cooking skills to good use, and we enjoyed post-run cake thanks to the Sheldon family.
This was a good week for milestones, as another regular volunteer, Joanna Elson, was running her 100th, and Kate and Dan Stolworthy came all the way from Huddersfield to run their 100th, as well as Eliot Toynton visiting us for his 50th. Congratulations to all.
The first runners home were Edward Campbell in 18.31, closely followed by Chris Mattinson in 18.38, and an unknown runner in 3rd. For the ladies, first home for the 3rd time at Ally Pally was junior Mia Manttan in 21.50, followed by Ruth Forbes in 22.15 and Gail Mackie in 23.27.
Mia Manttan was fastest junior, followed by Matthew Sheldon, and Janak Subberwal.
Best age grades were achieved by Caroline White and Mike Hurford.
Many thanks to all our volunteers, including those who stepped up in response to our late Friday plea. It is always good for the run director's blood pressure if we have a full complement of volunteers well before the day, so please consider signing up if you haven't done it before.

Ally Pally parkun over the winter season

It is this time of year when you find that there is a higher chance of a parkrun cancelling an event due to bad weather conditions. We are currently using an alternative 'winter' course in reverse which consists of three clockwise laps of the upper half of the original course only. We have every intention of still holding Ally Pally parkrun as long as we can hold the event safely. If we know in advance of a cancellation we will put it up on the news page and send a message via social media but if the decision to call off an event is made on the morning we hope you will understand if you arrive to find this out. The health and safety of the volunteers and parkrunners must come first. You can still run the course under your own choosing but it will not be an official parkrun.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
