Barrow parkrun 384

Barrow parkrun 384

Numbers were down again this week, but it didn't stop an exciting finish to the top 3 mens placing as all three men are juniors and finished within 19 seconds from 1st to 3rd, well done to our junior runners.

There was a few large puddles to negotiate this week which definitely made the going a little bit tougher than normal, the main topic of conversation was to either run through the water or round through the mud.  From looking at some of the photographs taken lots of people had fun running through the water.

Saturday 6th April is junior week at parkrun when all our juniors will take over the volunteering roles, if you would like to help please email or message on the Facebook page.

Congratulations to Malini Kamalanathan who completed her 50th milestone run today, although not an official milestone Gordon Gibson completed his 150th run, well done to you both.

This week 118 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

This week personal bests were achieved by: Justin CORBISHLEY, Matthew SHAW, Laura DEAN, Colin KNIGHT, Ian BROCKBANK, Louise BURKE, Emma SMITH, Maurice DUFFY, Shaun BARROW, Linda BROCKBANK, Jayne MOWBRAY, Michelle JOHNSON

16th February 2019

 

It felt almost like spring was upon as when  179 people ran, jogged and walked Barrow’s parkrun course this week - the sun and the daffodils were making the effort, though it was still nippy enough for plenty of jackets to be in evidence too!

There was also plenty of cake, thanks to Alfie Dale and Justine Blackburn who each clocked up their 50th parkruns, and Paul Willetts  completing his 100th. It was lovely to see so many people staying around after completing their runs to enjoy the social aspect of parkrun (and the cake!) and a big thanks must go to the park cafe - they have opened up for us every week right through the winter and are an important part of the Barrow parkrun experience.

There were 16 first timers among this week’s participants, and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 19 volunteers:

David FARISH • Donna BATES • Raymond ROBB • Philip HORROCKS • Jennifer FAZACKERLEY • Christopher O'HARE • Jamie OHARE • Ruth HAUGHIAN • Dawn WILD • Nicholas James EMERSON • Philip LOW • Michael HIGGINS • John SHERWEN • John WEARING • Fred BAGLEY • Philip LEIGH • Ann HORTON • Brian LEECE • Keith HERBERT

Barrow parkrun 380

Barrow parkrun – event 380

It was a last minute decision as to whether the event was due to go ahead given the icy weather we have endured all week.  Just after 8am it was announced, the run would go ahead but on the alternative course due to the unsafe icy patches on our normal course.  For 153 runners this meant they jumped out of bed and for others, they may have taken the opportunity to get a lie in, as it was quieter than it has been since the New Year.

Whilst the alternative course is hillier and fractionally longer than 5k, it did not stop 8 people from recording new personal best times.   We welcome 8 first timers including 2 ‘tourists’, one from Bradford and the other from Manchester.  As always, a big thank you to the volunteers who got cold to make this event go ahead.

It was a milestone run for junior runner Kacey-Anne Brown who completed her 10th run and whilst not an official milestone, Jo Barnard ran her 200th, so only 50 more runs before her next t-shirt….

parkrun is for people of all abilities and ages. If you want to get fit, train for a future race or meet new friends then barrow parkrun provides the solution to anyone’s motivation. Participants can walk, jog/walk or sprint. No pressure is put on people only encouragement to finish the course. If you are a first time runner wanting to join us it is recommended that you register at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/barcode and arrive at the bandstand at 8.45am for the pre run briefing. Please bring along your barcode if you want your time to be registered.

We also have a junior parkrun which is held on Sunday at 9am and is for kids aged 4 to 14. Children do not have to run with an adult for this event and the course is shortly at 2k. More information about this event can be found at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/barrow-juniors/

Happy running,

BARROW PARKRUN REPORT #376 – 5TH JANUARY 2019

A blockbuster of a run report for you this week, thanks to Tourist Barry Shackleton for writing the report!

We have moved into the second month of winter and the first parkrun Saturday of 2019, and so far the weather Gods have been kind with no bad weather threatening enough for cancellations. Indeed, at 9am as 242 runners gathered at the bandstand for the Run Director's address it was about 8°C with no wind so it felt mild and maybe that is what was attracting the highest attendance ever seen at a Barrow parkrun.

It is the 9th time there have been 200+ runners at Barrow and 242 was 19 more than the previous record which was set in October last year. This was one of 64 new attendance parkrun records which have been set this week in the UK. There were also a record number of parkruns taking place in the UK with 581, and this attracted 168,139 runners which was over 150,000 for the first time ever and beats the previous record set in May 2018.

So with all this activity, here is a closer look at who did what:
The first runner home was Liam Walker of the University of Sheffield Tri Club who finished in 17:44. This was his 16th run at Barrow, and the 14th time he has crossed the line in front of everyone else. He is also the 4th fastest runner ever seen at Barrow which was when he ran his PB of 16:11 on New Years Day this year.
An unknown runner finished in 2nd place while in 3rd position was Ian Sadler of Walney Wind Cheetahs who was running his 265th parkrun, of which 248 have been completed at Barrow. Ian already has his 250 run t-shirt and needs just two more appearances at Barrow to complete a 250-double. Ian is the 123rd fastest runner ever seen at Barrow.

The Walney Wind Cheetahs club also produced the first Lady with Amy Singleton coming home in 13th place overall in 21:15. This was her 124th parkrun of which 120 have been at Barrow and this is the 13th time that Amy has finished as first Lady.
Karen Oldham was 2nd Lady in 22nd place who was taking part in her 78th parkrun and Karen is a true passionista having completed all 78 runs at Barrow. Third position was claimed by Sarah Bouffler who runs for the Barrow and Furness Striders and this was Sarah's 288th appearance at Barrow out of 295 completed parkruns. She also had the 8th highest attendance of any runners appearing on the day.

Another Barrow and Furness Strider, David Spencer, was the only one on the day with an Age Grading higher than 80% when his 82.15% scored higher than anyone else. He finished in 65th place with a time of 26:14 which is brilliant for someone who is in the V80 category. He holds the Barrow record for the quickest run in that category, and also holds the V75 category. David has completed 238 parkruns with 236 of them being at Barrow, having strayed only twice at Cardiff and Fell Foot.

There were 26 runners today who ran a Personal Best time, so well done to them. All aboard the PB Express. There were no new Category records. 116 runners today were ladies and 124 were men, and there were 30 juniors. Don't forget that while we love the youngsters running with us, if the junior is under the age of 11 they MUST be accompanied at all times during the run by an adult. 12 of the juniors were female aged 10 and under so there is a rich vein of young running talent in the Barrow area.

There were 18 First Timers who joined the parkrun party at Barrow of which 15 were running a parkrun for the very first time and joining the ever growing parkrun family. Now that you have completed your first parkrun why not come back to Barrow next week and try to run a Personal Best time by beating it?

This week there were 23 runners who were shown as 'unknown'. It's terrible to have a brilliant run, maybe get a Personal Best, or finish in 2nd place as happened today, and then fail to have it recognised because you have no barcode. PLEASE …. Don't Forget Your Barcode. Need a new barcode? Or would you like your result as a text? Follow the link to your profile from your latest results email. And remember please don't take home your finish tokens. They are not souvenirs - DON'T BE A TOKEN MAGPIE.

HALL OF FAME
Those celebrating milestones with us this week were:
250 - Dave Aitken (Parkside Panthers) joined the 250-club and gets a green commemorative t-shirt.
100 - Alan Robinson joined the 100-club and gets a black commemorative t-shirt.
75 - Kim Anderson (Walney Wind Cheetahs)
75 - Alexia Blackburn (Walney Wind Cheetahs)
50 - Pam Robertson joined the 50-club and gets a red commemorative t-shirt.
50 - Rachael Park joined the 50-club and gets a red commemorative t-shirt.
10 - Casey Turner (junior) joined the 10-club and gets a white commemorative t-shirt. He finished in 25th place in 22:35 which was a new Personal Best time.

Over the holiday period in the UK:
4,149 runners joined the 50 club, 2,050 runners joined the 100-club, 277 runners joined the 250-club
-and Barrow runners were featured in each group!

And those who are knocking on the celebration door include:
199 - Ruth Haughian (Walney Wind Cheetahs) She is only 5k away from completing 1,000,000 parkrun metres.

Number of Commemorative T-shirts on show today:

Cardinal Red (50 runs) - 36 runners
Jet Black (100 runs) - 44 runners
Green (250 runs) - 18 runners

Want to give feedback? Have anything to say or want anyone mentioned in future run reports? Are there any corrections needed to this report?
Please e-mail barrowoffice@parkrun.com

VOLUNTEERS - REMEMBER that parkrun can only take place weekly because of the volunteers and marshalls who give up their time on a Saturday morning. If you want to get involved, email barrowhelpers@parkrun.com.
This week, we had 20 credited volunteers so thank you all.
And potential runners remember that to officially take part at Barrow (or any other parkrun anywhere) you need to be registered at www.parkrun.org.uk , but you only need to register once and the barcode they give you will be needed each week when you have finished the run.
DON'T FORGET YOUR BARCODE.

Barrow parkrun started on the 24th September 2011 with 25 runners and 9 volunteers. The course record was set in October 2015 by Phil Waite in 15:12, and the female course record was set by Lizzie Browne in October 2012 at 16:24. There have been 4,377 different runners on the course, representing 421 different running clubs, and they have completed 47,447 runs. The average attendance is 126 every week and there have been 7,844 Personal Bests. The attendance record stands at 242 which was set this week. Barrow parkrunners have completed 237,235Km and have been running in total for 2 years and 256 days.
And that's it for the report for run #376.
If you fancy writing a run report, and putting your slant on it, get in touch. We would love to hear from you.

We welcome children at parkrun. Please note that those under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice whilst attending 5k parkrun events. It must also be ensured that children place themselves appropriately at the start so as to prevent a situation where they are being repeatedly overtaken. This is to ensure the safety of your child.

Don't forget there's also a Barrow parkrun taking place on New Year's Day - what a great way to kick off 2019!

Thanks

Barrow parkrun – Event number 371 – 15th December 2018

A combination of dreadful weather and the Christmas party season being upon us meant the second lowest turnout of the year at Barrow parkrun with only 96 hardy souls making their way to the 9am start. It was also day two of the local “Frosty Triple” race series, so quite a few parkrun regulars were out collecting medals and personal best times on a different course than their usual Saturday morning route.

Of the brave 96, first home was Ryan Everett, in 18:21, second was Luca Messenger Jones in 19:19 and third was William McAllister in 19:30.
For the ladies, Janice Callister was first in 22:25, Sarah Bouffler 2nd in 22:55 and third place was taken by Sandra Garnett in 23:11.

2 visitors from the Spectrum Striders running club, Ran and Lisa Mackay, were the only two “first-timers” and we look forward to seeing them again in the future in better weather. Three people recorded new Personal Best times, Matthew Lynch, Isla Robertson and Rebecca MacMahon, well done!

Junior runners Will Cush and Joseph Cush made their milestone 10th run and will be able to vlaim their free milestone t-shirt.

Barrow parkrun is free to enter and takes place every Saturday at 9 am, meet at the bandstand at 8:45 for the pre-run briefing. Register at www.parkrun.org.uk/register and follow the instructions on that page to print your personal barcode then you can receive an official time, which is emailed and text to you on the Saturday when the results are processed.

Don’t forget our special runs over Christmas - Join us for our 6th Christmas Day parkrun here in Barrow - 9am start and why not start 2019 with a parkrun? Join us for a 9am start to our 5th New Year's Day parkrun.
