Basildon parkrun Run Report #239

Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 239!

On an unseasonably warm Saturday morning, Run Director Charlie weclomed 204 parkrunners to his briefing in Northlands Park. We were joined by 29 first timers, and lots of tourists & excursionists - welcome all!

23 of you managed to record Personal Bests, and three of you achieved milestones this week:

Alfie HILL - 10 parkrun Club
Hannah FOOTER - 10 parkrun Club
Dave SARGENT - 50 parkrun Club

Well done all!

Our event is only as successful as our volunteers make it - please help future events by checking our roster, and email us at basildonhelpers@parkrun.com with what you’d like to do and when. You will be given all information needed to ensure you are happy in your role. We can't do this without you! :-)

Basildon parkrun Run Report #237

Basildon parkrun number 237 29/09/18

159 participants completed Basildon parkrun on a sunny Saturday morning. The conditions were obviously good as 39 people got personal bests. We welcomed five first timers plus visitors from Lowestoft and Brentwood, with 14 running clubs being represented.
Congratulations to Ray Beard who joined the 100 parkrun club.
Many thanks to this week’s volunteers. Congratulations to Andrew Clifford who volunteered and celebrated his birthday on Saturday. Parkrun relies on volunteers and there are a range of roles some of which you can do and still run, like checking the course, setting up, token sorting and first timers briefing. If you’d like to volunteer speak to the run director or another hi-vis hero on Saturday or take a look at https://support.parkrun.com/hc/en-us/articles/200566523-What-do-the-volunteers-do-
If you happen to have finish tokens 89 or 123 please bring them back next time you come to Basildon parkrun. If you haven’t got your parkrun ID with you give your finish token to the volunteer with the bar code scanner or the run director. As lovely as they are they are not souvenirs and have to be replaced.

Christmas Day 2018!

Basildon parkrun - Christmas Day Event

We're pleased to announce we will be running a Christmas Day special parkrun! This will be in addition to our normal Saturday events, so please make a note in your diaries for Tuesday 25th December 2018 at the usual start time of 9.00am.

A few volunteers are required for the event, but we will be operating a 'parkrun lite' event to keep the volunteers to a minimum.

The Northlands Park café and toilets will not be open.

See you there, and #dfyb!

 

Basildon parkrun Run Report #236

Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 236, this week sent in by Run Director Richard!

parkrun number #236 saw 182 runners, joggers and walkers gather in Northlands Park and parkrun together. There were 9 first time parkrunners, 5 Basildon parkrun first time visitors and a whopping 47 PBers who benifitted from the volunteer roster and pacer rolls being filled, by Pitsea Running Club.

But its not just parkrunners in the park on a Saturday morning. We share the park (and carpark) with many other groups; fishermen, dog walkers, pokemon players(?) etc. and therefore need to allow every park user to enjoy the park as much as we do on each and every Saturday morning.

Thanks Richard!
