Barrow parkrun event #325 - 13th January 2018

A good attendance again this week as 184 runners, joggers and walkers completed Barrow parkrun's 325th event. Everyone met at the bandstand as usual at 08:45 for a quick run briefing-ready to start the 5 km timed run. With a team of 20 volunteers, spectators, friends and family it can be a lively affair, this week was no exception.
It's great to see new people turn up. Barrow parkrun welcomed 9 first timers to event 325. Now they're familiar we hope they come back soon for another go. 4 participants did just that completing their 2nd parkrun, Ruby Harrison improved on her time by over 3 minutes.
It was chilly with a strong breeze, some would say cold and windy but the weather didn't deter 17 taker parters achieving a PB (personal best) time. It takes some gusto to give it everything and it seems the ladies had more gusto this week with 11 PB's to the mens 6.
Well done to you all
Tourist parkrunners this week joined us from Moors Valley, Worsley Woods and Neil Bayntun-Roberts, on his 76th parkrun is on a mission to complete parkrun events in alphabetical order-there's still a lot more, and more starting up so it may take a long while!

Barrow parkrun # 324 – 06/01/2018

This week Barrow parkrun had the highest attendance since it began in September of 2011! A very busy and lively morning with many new faces and many familiar ones. A new year and resolute runners, walkers and joggers joined in for the first parkrun of 2018.
209 participants took on the timed 5 kilometre barcode event, 9 of those were making their parkrun debuts - we hope they come back soon for another go.

6.jan1

William McAllister, this weeks run director gave a memorable, longer than usual pre-run briefing making very clear the route and course safety. Thanks William - for the chuckles and to all the other volunteers who gave up their time for the rest of us.
1st finisher this week was Black Combe Runner Joshua Hartley in an impressive 17:30,
2nd over the line was Harvey Lord in 18:13, completing his milestone 50th run in style.
3rd home was Helm Hill Runner Jon Lowther in 19:09, a new personal best time.
Kim Anderson was the 1st lady to complete the course with a time of 22:20 in 15th overall position.

06.jan
1st Junior runner to complete parkrun was Adam Williamson in 23:39.
Highest age gradings went to regulars Ian Sadler for the men at 78.66% and Brenda Bagley for the ladies with 76.19%. Age grade is a more accurate way to measure the results as it takes into consideration age and gender rather than just who runs fastest. So well done to you for your excellent efforts.
12 taking part achieved personal best times and parkrun tourists joined us from Lancaster (Rebecca Shephard) and Chris Hanlon celebrating his 60th birthday and 50th parkrun this morning. Chris is a regular at Braunstone parkrun so thanks for joining us today.
Barrow parkrun takes place every Saturday morning. We meet at the bandstand 08:45 to start at 09:00 and welcome all ages and abilities, you can run, jog or walk and there's no pressure to hurry just encouragement to finish. If you'd like to give it a try then register here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ print a barcode and bring it along with you.
Full results can be found here - http://www.parkrun.org.uk/barrow/results/latestresults/
The cafe was open as usual this week so many taking part, volunteering and spectating met for post run refreshment and banter. It's good way to meet new people and catch up with friends.

Please join us next week, we'd love to see you!

Barrow pakrun – event 320

everettsBarrow parkrun – 322

We held an extra parkrun on Christmas Day which went down well with 95 runners turning up including 14 junior runners which is incredible given it’s the one day of the year when staying at home might be more appealing.   Well done to everyone who came along and special shout of to those that volunteered.

Our run the 30th Dec was rather nippy but we were fortunate we did not have to cancel as the weather the previous day bought lots of snow and many other events were left with little choice but to cancel. A good turnout with 131 people taking part including 7 first timers of which 5 were ‘tourists’ from other parkruns.

It was a milestone run for Emma Gomersall who celebrated her 50th run and after recovering from an injury, ran her fastest time since April. Michael Higgins also had a significant run as he reached his 100th run.

emma gomersall 50th

Ryan Everett had some tough competition from Liam Walker as the pair battled for first place however Sheffield runner Liam, had the edge and finished in 16:52 with Ryan in second in 17:01. In third place was Harvey Lord who finished his 49th run in 18:27.

In the ladies placing, the first to finish was Emma Broadbent who finished in 22:31 and was followed by Heather Travis in 22:59. In third position was Karen Oldham who ran the 5k course in 24:02.

The following runners recorded the best Age Grade scores;

  • Ryan Everett 77.47% (2nd overall)
  • Brenda Bagley 77.34% (38th overall
  • Liam Walker 76.48% (1st overall)

And well done to those runners that came for our extra run on New Year’s Day. We had a handful of tourists with many then going onto do the double at Millom parkrun. It is the one time of the year that parkrun allows people to do two events in one day and it’s the first time in Cumbria that we have had two events where it has been possible. Six of our Barrow runners did both and the conditions at Millom could only be described as ‘boggy’.  It was 5 laps around the school field which was entirely waterlogged and left everyone caked in mud.

millom

We have a junior parkrun now 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/

Remember parkrun is for people of all abilities and ages. If you want to get fit as a new year’s resolution, 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.

Happy running,

Fiona Bannister

Barow parkrun event #317 – 25th November 2017

Barrow parkrun Event 315 – 11th November 2017

This week, Jennifer Fazackerley was our volunteer run director and began proceedings with a course briefing before participants made their way to the start line ready for the off at 09:00.
183 participants, a team of 27 much appreciated volunteers and many spectators made for a lively parkrun - a challenging timed 5km event around Barrow park. Volunteers always offer encouragement and applause along the way and other roles include handing out tokens, scanning barcodes and collecting up flags and pointers afterwards.
Of 183 participants, 5 were 1st timers and possibly the 1st of many to come. Tourist runners Agnieszka Colcomb joined us from her regular Newbury parkrun and Christine Rodgers from Millom parkrun made Barrow parkrun her 5th event to date.
30 parkrunners achieved new personal best times this week. Well done to each of you. Good weather conditions may have helped but mostly it's due to determination and attitude. 13 taking part were unknown, which means they either forgot to bring along their barcode or have yet to registered at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/.
1st finisher was unknown, if I finished 1st I'd really want to see my name on the results page! http://www.parkrun.org.uk/barrow/results/latestresults/
Andrew Dorrian finished 2nd in a nimble 18:56 making his 20th parkrun event to date. 1st Junior runner home was Greg Barnard-Mackenzie in 20:00 and his 113th parkrun done. 1st lady this week was Janice Callister in 23rd place and just 8 seconds shy of a PB with a time of 22:36.
Merryn Stangroom ran her milestone 10th parkrun in fine style with a new personal best time of 25:52 and also Daisy Parkinson earns her milestone Tshirt supplied by Tribesports, completing her 10th parkrun this week. Congratulations to you both.
David Spencer tops the age grade chart this week with a very impressive 81.94% with an equally impressive time of 25:39 and 204th parkrun to date. David is a regular at Barrow and runs in the 80-84 age catagory. A true inspiration to many a younger runner,
The 280th event completed today by Jacqui Armstrong is the highest attendance of a Barrow regular. Many more are fast approaching their milestone 250th run as Barrow parkrun has become well established since it began in September 2011 with just 25 taking part.
Many taking part meet afterwards at the cafe for a refreshments and a chat. It's good to catch up with friends and fellow runners if you can't catch up with them along the route you probably can here.
If you'd like to give parkrun a try then you are more than welcome, we'd like to see you and you don't need to go like the clappers, just at a pace that suits you - run, jog or walk. Many dog lovers bring their pooch on a short lead and parents can be seen pushing their young ones in a buggy. The volunteer tail walkers finish the event and scan in last to ensure nobody is left behind or loses their way. If you don't feel up to running then a volunteer role is good way to get involved and see how things work. FInd out more here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/barrow/volunteer/
Junoir parkrun starts on the 3rd December. More details can be found here - http://www.parkrun.org.uk/barrow-juniors/
The male record holder at Barrow parkrun is Phil Waite in a keen 15:12 while Lizzie Browne holds the fastest female top spot in an equally keen 16:24.
We don't need to be THAT keen.
See you soon!

Barrow parkrun Event #314 – 04th November 2017

This morning was a chilly one, a definite winter nip in the air and a grey sky to go with it, this though didn't deter 182 parkrunners taking part in the 314th parkrun at Barrow, the usual buzz of excitement and enthusiasm was as apparent as ever as everyone gathered at the bandstand at 08:50 for a quick course briefing before heading to the start line for the off.
The grey morning was made a lot more colourful with fresh faces and brightly coloured sports gear. The volunteers brought encouragement and kind words along the way - this week was no exception as a team of 19 helpers made the event go smoothly and enjoyable for the others. Thank you to you all, you're efforts were appreciated.
1st over the finish line this week was Reuben Copley, his 5th appearence at Barrow and with a new PB (personal best) time of 17:48. Olesia Winder was the first female to complete the challenging route also with a PB of 19:34 and an age grade score of 83:22%, the highest score this week, Reuben and Olesia are both running in the junior age catagories, well done to you both.
6 taking part were new to parkrun and tourist parkrunners from Barnsley, London, Preston and somewhat further afield - Delhi! We hope you enjoyed your run, thanks for visiting.
37 taking part recorded new PB times, what a brilliant effort. Well done to you.
Junior runner Kirsty Noble ran her milestone 10th parkrun in fine style with a new PB time of 31:21, an improvement of nearly 2 minutes. Tribesports - a parkrun sponsor reward milestone runners with parkrun t-shirt. Well done Kirsty. Dave Aitken ran his 200th parkrun this week, well done to you Dave. 200 isn't a milestone tshirt run but it's still a great achievement.
Ian Sadler topped the male age grade score this week with 78.45% with Peter Hall close behind with 77.24%, Peter runs in the 75-79 age catagory. He has recently started taking part again after an absence and completed this mornings event in 24:58. It's great to see such a wide age range of people joining in at parkrun. Everyone is welcome. Under 11's are required to run with an adult, this is parkrun policy. If you fancy giving parkrun a try then why not come along. Register, bring a barcode and take part-you can walk, jog or run. Pets are required to be on a short lead, some parents even push their young ones around in pushchairs and buggies.
After the event many runners, spectators and volunteers meet for a brew and a chat at the cafe afterwards - it's a good way to catch up with the people you can't catch up to round the course. Why not join us next week?
Hope to see you there.
