Barking parkrun- event number 291 – 20th January 2018

All week the weather forecast for Saturday was dry and bright until yesterday when it changed and boy did it change. Special thanks to the volunteers listed below who stood out in the soggy and cold weather to make sure your parkrun was able to take place. Picture the scene of several volunteers huddled together under a hand dryer in the splash park trying to get feeling back into very cold hands as we closed down the event. Special mention to Julie Gillender who started her run director training under Rob's careful supervision, it is a slow process but Julie will hopefully be in charge in a few month's time

Still you are a hardy bunch  and a bit of rain did not put off 92 of you including 2 new members of the parkrun club. Welcome Abul Muhsin & David Turner. We also welcomed 4 other first timers to Barking including the first 2 male finishers. Perhaps the wet and cold spurred a few on as we had 10 pb's including our first lady finisher.

Barking parkrun Event number 288 30th December 2017

Better late than never, although the keen eyed amongst you will see this has some of the usual information missing as rd Chris has only just discovered that if you do the reports out of sequence the statistics disappear. However on a positive note we were pleased to see our 20000th finisher Rosanna Howard which means that you lovely parkrunners have now covered more than 100000kms since Barking parkrun started on the 28th of July 2012
On a beautiful Saturday morning we saw 107 people run, jog, or walk the course including 9 people new to Barking parkrun. The first 6 finishers were as follows.

Congratulations to our highest age graded runners Jason Syrett 73.81% and Jane Bramble 70.14%
The event was made possible by our lovely volunteers: Chris Anastasi, Margaret Bainbridge, Martin Brooks, Alan Cranmer, Alison Fryatt, George Hanmore, Chris Heslegrave, Dee King, Rowland Lyons, Lucy Mellor & Harmander Singh.
Please consider a new year resolution to become more involved with helping your parkrun to take place and become a volunteer, you will see your name in lights in the run report but more important it is great fun. we do not need you every week but it would be great if you could all consider offering your services a few times a year

Well was it cold? freezing? i think we will go with bracing at parkrun this morning. At least it was dry and therefore no sign of the ice that threatened us a few weeks ago.Another good turnout despite the cold, perhaps this was partly as a result of the closure of nearby harrow lodge parkrun , there loss was our gain.

Phillip Ellul 18.11

Barking parkrun #287 – 25th December 2017

Thank you to everyone who helped to make yesterday the biggest Barking parkrun to date, and the best Christmas Day parkrun ever! Yesterday 228 people ran, jogged and walked the course, smashing our previous attendance record of 155, set on Christmas Day 2015, by 73. This included 49 first timers at Barking of which two, Ewan McAuley and Sonny Plummer, were completing their first ever parkruns – welcome to the wonderful world of parkrun, guys.

As if the day wasn’t special enough, our male course record holder, Paul Martelletti turned up and completed the course in 14.52, breaking his own record set on 24th January 2015 by 10 seconds. Paul also set a new Age Grade course record of 90.47% (VM35-39). I think it was the light sabre that helped the force be with him!

Not far behind were Bertie Powell who finished in 16.37, and David Jones who crossed the line in 16.56.

Our first three women across the line were Morgan Campbell in 20.23, Carole Broome in 24.17 and Gemma Thompson in 24.26.

An amazing 38 people recorded new Personal Bests, far too many to name them all personally but a big well done to them.

Last but very definitely not least, a very big THANK YOU to our volunteers. We really couldn’t put on parkrun every week, rain or shine, without those people who contribute their time to allow the rest of us to run:

Amanda Jane HESLEGRAVE • Timi Selon VEERASAMY • Ken SUMMERFIELD • Rowland LYONS • Ronald VIALLS • Alison FRYATT • Dennis SPENCER-PERKINS • Kresh VEERASAMY • Harmander SINGH • Chris HESLEGRAVE • Asha SANDHU • Chris ANASTASI • Sonya VEERASAMY • Ita O'CONNOR • Charles ELLUL

And thank you to Jason Li for providing the music, which really added to the festive atmosphere. Oh, and the light sabre...
