Barking parkrun #332 10/11/2018

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day i have a wonderful feeling oh wait  hang on this is the run report not the Barking sing along. The earlier rain had subsided and although we had a lot of surface water and tree debris we were a able to proceed without any issues.We seem to have had an unknown runner crossing the line twice, so if you finished towards the rear of the field you may find that your finishing position does not match with the token you were given although we are confident that the times are correct. This week was particularly special because of the number of volunteers that stepped forward enable us to provide you with plenty of support on the course. Perhaps you could let us know next week where you got the loudest cheer was it Aftab and family by the tennis courts, Jason and family by the allotments or perhaps Annette by the main road gate ? Don't let this influence your vote but yesterday was Annette Prior's 25th volunteering appearance at parkrun thank you.  For those who maybe were not aware if you volunteer 25 times you get a free tee shirt just like the milestone running shirts (purple).

We were delighted to welcome 19 first timers to our parkrun including an impressive 8 debutants , so welcome to Barking; Duncan, Ellie, Natalie, Richard, Alan, Jessica, Keith, Charanjit, Abigail, Deborah & Jaroslava. Welcome to Barking and to parkrun; Stephen, Somto, Oliver, Duvan, Zac, Claudia, Jade & Julia.

Barking parkrun #330 27th October 2018

Well it felt like winter had arrived at Barking, but at least it remained dry for our wonderful volunteers who i think were caught out by the recent mild weather as there was an absence of hats and gloves and a few blue hands. Perhaps the colder weather spurred you on as we saw an impressive 15 new personal best times, too many to mention individually but very well done to all concerned.
We were pleased to welcome 11 first timers including 2 parkrun debuts, so welcome to parkrun Owen and Robert, and welcome to Barking parkrun, Lloyd, Olasoji, James, Andy, Jason, Emma, Neil, Andrea & Grace.
2 milestones to note Steve Chissell 50 and Sarah Pepper 50, as we have said before we do not receive prior notification of milestones(although we try to keep an eye out) so do let us know on the day if you want a shout out in the briefing.

Now for the statistical bit the best age graded results were Female; Lorraine Moor 63.41% Male; John Whan 73.97% well done both.

Christmas 2018

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Only 12 weeks until Christmas.

You'll be pleased to know that we will be having the now traditional parkrun at Barking Park on Christmas morning. We will be starting at the normal time of 9.00am, so you can get home in time for the turkey (or vegetarian alternative) and mince pies.  I'm sure we will also have a few nibbles at parkrun too, if you can't wait until lunchtime.

It's usually our biggest and best parkrun of the year, so do try and come along. Silly Christmas outfits optional.

Barking parkrun # 323 – 8th September 2018

We just missed the ton this week, with 98 people running, jogging and walking the course. This included seven people running their first-ever parkrun (welcome Chris, Ausra, Lee, Sarah, Harjinder, Rakesh, and Sartabdi) and 11 runners paying their first visit to Barking parkrun (hello Sean, James, Bob, Shaun, Carl, Graeme, Terry, Sue, Sue, Alyssa, and Jacqueline). Sixteen people recorded new Personal Bests (well done Ananthi, Abigail, Linda, Omer, Rehan, Steve, Simi, Tabassum, Gurvinder, Clodagh, Nicola, Amy, Ewan, the mysterious K Koomson, Alexander and Joyce).

Parkrun tourist Bob Turner was wearing his Little Stoke parkrun t-shirt. Some of you may remember that Little Stoke was the parkrun near Bristol that had to close down a couple of years ago because the local council wanted to start charging for the use of the park. As parkrun is committed to providing free timed runs, forever, there was no money to pay for the park use so that was the end of Little Stoke parkrun. Bob and his fellow parkrunners are still hopeful that the council may have a change of heart – fingers crossed for them.

This week congratulations went to Victor Hutchins and Sue Parkinson who both celebrated their 100th parkruns, and to Alice Bridge who celebrated her 13th birthday by running her 35th parkrun.

Today’s event was made possible by 10 volunteers:

Philip PEARSON • Alison FRYATT • Paul Antony TABOR • Chris HESLEGRAVE • Louise CHAPPELL • Chris ANASTASI • Jeremy YEATES • Tolu OYELOLA • Alain COOPER • Harmander SINGH.

Today’s first three men across the line were:
1. Ewan Maynard – 19:34
