Basildon parkrun Run Report #252

Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 252, this week sent in by Run Director Carole!

Happy New Year to all 190 runners and walkers who turned up at Northlands park for our first parkrun of 2019. A fantastic number of people visited Basildon for the first time, hopefully those of you who made taking part in parkrun a New Year Resolution will find it is one that you do not break. Also, congratulations to our 16 parkrunners to got PBs this week, Ted Hillebrant on joining the 10 parkrun Club, and Robert Monger on joining the 50 parkrun Club!

There are a lot of unknown in the results remember it is free to sign up you only need to print off your barcode and bring along to get scanned at the end that way you will receive a time and can start working towards those milestones.

In the past year at Basildon we have had 1889 participants, 214 volunteers and 836 people registered and this week 11 more people registered, unfortunately I cannot tell you how many cups of tea were drank or bacon butties eaten in the café afterwards.

Well done to everyone who has taken part and especially to our volunteers as without our hi viz heroes parkrun cannot take place it would be great to look at the figures this time next year and see more people had given volunteering a go, don’t forget there are some roles that mean you can volunteer and run.

Thanks Carole!

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! :-)

See you next week, and, as always, Don't Forget Your Barcode! #dfyb

Albert having run all 100 parkruns at Basildon and volunteering an incredible 62 times here too! Colin also has an incredible 93 Parkruns at Basildon! We also had Lucy Outen join the 10 parkrun Club, and Charles Omer, Emma Absolom and Lee Webb join the 50 parkrun Club - well done all!

The run started with a stampede to the hill before a muddy cone corner and slippery descent to the lake, that was just lap 1. The leaders crossed the line together just like the tail walkers.

Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their time to make this possible. We appreciate every thank you as you pass, it makes it worth it. Volunteers are needed every week so please do help out when you can.

This was the 251st Basildon parkrun and the last of the year. 2018 has been an incredible year for parkrun which will continue into 2019. Happy New Year to all and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Thanks Adam!

Okay, you get the idea. There's plenty going on with parkrun over the Festive period, you need never be bored.

Thank you to everyone that makes Basildon parkrun possible, and to the supporters and sponsors that help keep it free!

Northlands Park was a fine morning for the pre-Christmas event, with many parkrunners taking to fancy dress, including new Run Director, Dave Mullender, who ditched his turkey costume this year for something more subtle.

RD Dave in his Santa suite!

We welcomed Tourists and Excursionists, 5 first timers, and 6 new PBs!

Congratulations to Wendy Kaur joining the parkrun junior 10 club, and Lisa Cusgrove achieving the 100!

Thanks to everyone that donated to the cake table, which heavily pregnant Mary was trying to beat an old Turkey to get to:

Festive runners!

Ty was thinking that maybe a thumbs-up sign wasn't the best for his aerodynamics

Thumbs up Ty!

whilst Mrs Claus was wondering how to shake off all the Santas

Go Santa!

Remember parkrun can't take place without you. If you can offer some time to volunteer please contact basildonoffice@parkrun.com and let them know. Some roles mean you can still take part and run such as First Timer's Briefing, Run Report Writer, Finish Token Sorter.

Our next event is CHRISTMAS DAY! Yes... we are committed to bringing our event to you at 9am on 25 December which will be Basildon parkrun #250. Reminder that it will be parkrun lite, with minimal volunteers, and the results are likely to be a little later than usual and possibly post Christmas Dinner and a few sherries, but, like Santa, they will turn up eventually.

Wishing you all the best over the Festive Season, and a Happy New Year.

From all at Basildon parkrun

Basildon parkrun Run Report #248

Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 248, this week sent in by Louise Maikovsky!

This Saturday morning 117 runners and 20 volunteers braved the cold Basildon parkrun! Congratulations to the 4 new first time parkrunners (Manuela-Roxana Gordea, Mia Kiteley, Natasha Baptist and Natasha Walden), 5 PBs (Andrew Kenyon - with a 2:47 PB!, Daniel Hadley, Glyn Yeldham, Leigh Still, Natalie Burton - with a 3:32 PB!, Philip Beaumont and Susan Everett), and 2 milestone runners (Lottie Poulton and Greg Regan, both now having completed 10 parkruns!)

This was my first parkrun at Basildon and what really stood up to me was the lovely community spirit! We started off by getting a really welcoming first timers briefing by Kenneth Carey and then being started off by the wonderful run directors Ian Hart and Dave Mullender! The course was really scenic and the downhill was very much appreciated! The lake was very beautiful to run around and it was nice to be running on grass for a change. The volunteers were awesome, cheering everyone on, especially the lady with the noisy toys before the hill! Definitely helped me get up the hill. After 3 laps I was happy to see the finish, cheer on the fastest tailwalkers I've ever seen and then hop into the warm cafe which was full of friendly faces. I'd definitely recommend this parkrun and look forward to doing it again.

Many thanks to all the high-vis heroes who made parkrun happen this week:

Albert MILES • Anne COGGIN • Anne PETERSON • Ben CURTIS • Carly RODGERS • Charlie LLOYD • Dave MULLENDER • David DAVIDSON • Ian HART • John VICTORY • John WILKINSON • Kairen HART • Kenneth CAREY • Laura MCDERMOTT • Linda BATES • Louise MAIKOVSKY • Lucy KEMISH • Michael WOODWARD • Pauline MACKENZIE-MOORE • Richard MOORE

Thank you Louise! :-)
