Event number 144

It now feels like the number 500 could become normal for Belton House parkrun!
505 of you ran walked and jogged the free 5k course situated in the beautiful surroundings of Belton House National Trust heritage site. Well done everyone!
For those that don’t know much about the National Trust, they have been protecting the natural environment, historic places and wildlife for over 100 years
I add this as some of you visiting or touring may not be aware that the National Trust are our graceful hosts allowing us to hold parkrun every week.

After a few weeks of high numbers the Event Director posted this after saturday's event on the Belton House parkrun site:
A plea from the organisers. Well we broke 500 again today, however it is worrying, because some people are leaving it to the last minute to arrive, queues are building up in both directions from the entrance. What is very concerning is the queue is stretching back onto the A607. Please if you are coming along the A607 and you cannot turn into Belton Lane,carry on and take the next turning into the village, that has more space for queues. Best of all, would be, if you could arrive earlier, so to spread out the traffic entering the site.

We had a fare few comments posted after this and we do thank you for all the suggestions that came in, however all is sometimes not as simple as it looks.
Belton House National Trust look after 1300 acres of land, 300 fallow deer an abundance of wildlife and vegetation, ‘we’ as parkrun have to consider the impact of 500 runners, joggers and walkers alone, this does not include the volunteers and how all that will impact on the site with the added foot fall and vehicles.

Please rest assured parkrun are in contact with the National Trust, and hold regular meetings, there is one this month and we will of course let you know the outcome of the discussions surrounding the Lion Gate entrance, in the meantime we would ask that you consider car sharing, cycling, running and walking - Obviously only if you are able to do so and safely.

So back to your amazing achievements, milestones and tourists :-)

This week 506 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 61 were first timers, welcome to the parkrun family and see you next week for your 2nd, 20 first timers to Belton House and 108 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 27 different clubs took part.

Jo Parkes celebrated her 40th birthday in style and it happened to be the same day as her 40th parkrun. Well done Jo and a happy 40th!

Thrilled to see 38 of you came back and completed your 2nd parkrun :-)

Tourist James Aitken from Harlow in Essex was visiting, his first time to Belton House and completed in 23:39 but certainly not his first parkrun and has completed 128! Welcome and we hope you enjoyed the course.

20190105-DSC_8514

Well, we didn't break the record but still had a fantastic turn out on Saturday with 539 of you running walking and jogging. Well done all! 98 were first timers, 66 of those first timers to Belton House! And and incredible 136 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 30 different clubs took part.

Due to the eagle eyed Event Director, Gordon Geach who had been monitoring parkrun registrations to Belton House, 115 new registrations on the lead up to saturday, coupled with knowing the uni students had not yet gone back, potential friends and family visiting for the festive period, plus new years resolutions we were well prepared for you all!

For those that don’t use face book a note from Event Director and your Run director on saturday, Gordon who posted this after Saturday's event.
Firstly, thank you everyone who attended parkrun today, it was great to see all 538/539 of you, plus the 24 hi-viz volunteers!
Yes I say 538/539 as we gave out 538 tokens, recorded 538 times but ended up with 539 finishers, for some reason two people had been scanned at a certain position by the same scanner one after each other
I think the funnel and handing out of finish tokens worked very well, even though one or two of you still stopped right after the finish line. Having the three funnel managers greatly helped, 2 bruisers, who kept you in order and moving and one speedy DofE (Duke of Edinbiurgh) to check that the stopwatches and finish tokens were in sink, he had a 100m dash each time to check (there and back), they were bang on right to the end.
Moving the scanners further away from the end of the funnel helped.
Tokens, we had to go to raffle tickets again, but were still able to scan the position from a preprinted A4 with the position barcodes on them, which made processing the results easier and less time consuming. We also had four people scanninig today as one of the volunteers, Ruth Featherstone downloaded the parkrun virtual app which allows you to scan barcodes then email them in.
I am waiting a response from HQ on purchasing additional finish tokens, so we do not have to revert to raffle tickets.
Timekeeping, again one of the timekeepers downloaded the virtual app to do the timing, leaving David Crombie with 2 stop watches with a maximum capacity of 500 positions. So he used one stopwatch to record 1 to 500 and then second to record 1 to 38. Uploading the files to the application causes it to recognise that position 1 on the second stopwatch due to the lapsed time is actually 501 and so forth, files merged, compared with the mobile app results and used.
Toilets, I'm please to say after contacting my National Trust contacts during the week, the toilets opened today and will in the future at 08:30 and not 08:45.
On that note, please respect the toilets, on very muddy days we do transports a lot of mud into them which then has to be cleaned away for their members, so please try and get as much mud off as possibly before going in.
Under no circumstances should you rinse your trainers in the sinks!
We and the National Trust understand that if you have a dog and by yourself then you will take the dog into the toilets with you, again as above please treat the toilets with respect and minimise any dirty/mud were possible.
I suspect numbers will start to drop now as people head off back to university and schools go back, but it's been a ball, from the nightmare of our 3rd anniversary where our record went from 388 to 561 and the testing NYD 591 to today 538/9. We've learnt a lot along this journey and asked other parkruns what they do and implemented some changes today that facilitated an enjoyable stress-free parkrun. At least now we know we can cater for large numbers, it will just be forecasting when they may occur
Have a great weekend and week, see you next Saturday.

So a big thank you from us to you boys and girls partaking, thanks for listening to the ‘bruisers’ (Funnel Managers) we expect as long as we keep you all moving then this funnel may take 600 of you! So you may feel a little pained from your run walk, or jog but we will ask you to keep a fast pace walk through the funnel, but not to overtake the person in front of you, keep your four legged friends on a very short lead, watch out for little people in front of you and as you approach the end of the funnel to have your palm out flat, ready to receive your token.

So back to celebrating the milestones, achievements, tourists and all things parkrun!


66 of you ran, jogged and walked for the first time, well done to each and everyone of you!
Chris Harris, Sarah Raymond, Simon Allsop, Joshua ONeill, Andrew Bawden, Rebecca Hallett, Max Adams, Colin Mills, Rhys Mercer, Gavin Stubbings, Jenny Darby, Jack Sumner, Vince Body, Fiona White, Anna Norrie, Connie Richardson, Grant Little, Ben Hanwell, Joe-Ann Dickenson, Lizzy Anthony, Judi Allsopp, Rose Hawcroft, Helen Bullement, William Rowe, Jo Saul, David Reeves, Georgina Ashley, Sadie Johnstone, Barbara Huxtable, Ann Raymond, Millie Gardiner, James Hayter, Rachel Osbourne, Karen Roberts, Emma Fleet, Donna Booth, Sarah Fowkes, Shani Rayner, Jodie Martin, India Stafford, Elizabeth Airdrie, Edward Airdrie, Jamye Oxby, Damon Boyle, Joseph Boyle, Eve Konarska, Zoe Konarska, Kirin Konarska, Thoma Sumner, Olly Lievers, Kris Sumner, Beatrice Smeaton, Jack Boyle, Harriet Smeaton, Gail Coates, Harry Nethercleft, Victoria Nethercleft, Karen Boyle, Patricia Hawcroft, Amanda Stephens, Isabel Stephens, Sally White, Sandra Gray, Bronwyn Baxter and Robyn Baxter.

Before we go one last thing! Grantham food Bank donations, thank you so much, we were thrilled when going to the visitors reception and finding the container full. This was delivered to them on Sunday. Unfortunately we cannot leave the container there in the week, but it will be back on Saturday and donations will continue for another 3 weeks.
Thank you for your generosity and supporting Grantham Food Bank.

More fancy dress below, sorry unsure who this is but I think it could be Olaf from the 22nd December……Do you know this lady, let us know?

We have to mention the volunteers! While the marshalls kept you all going on the course and Shaun was busy papping you all, the RD Gordon Geach and funnel Manager Jim Lane where busy extending the funnel and checking for funnel duckers all while sorting out raffle tickets as we only have tokens up to 500.
The queues backed up while everyone was timed in and you all shuffled through the funnel.
20190101-DSC_5928
We thank you for your patients.

We are unsure why we get funnel duckers, when this happens you have been timed in by the timekeepers therefore we ask that you do stay in the funnel and collect a token and if you don't want to be scanned, hand it straight to a barcode scanner. OR better still if you don't actually want to be timed and are using parkrun for a bit of motivation, could we kindly ask that you just don't go through the funnel.
If you funnel duck, this changes the results for everyone and also makes the RD’s time harder processing the result. Thank you.


After you had all either departed for your double or drinking coffee or in some cases champagne then Elaine and Roger Worster packed the course up and stored everything away, the Run director (Gordon) was busy sorting the results and this week Jo Parkes who has volunteered 17 times for token sorting alone put all the tokens back into numerical order, and last but not least while all runners, walkers and joggers are home relaxing the last job of the day is the processing the photos by Shaun and the days report to be done by the report writer - Phew’

The event was made possible by 22 volunteers, a HUGE thank you to all

Gordon GEACH • Helen BROWN • Brendon BUCKLEY • Claire LANE • Jim LANE • Dona HALL • Cameron MUIR • Hannah SAN JOSE • David FERGUSON • Samuel TATE • Anne TATE • Suzanne ELLIOTT • Judy SAUNDERS • Claire FRITZ • Georgia COWLING • Jo PARKES • Roger WORSTER • Elaine WORSTER • Shaun PARKES • Keith MUNRO • Kirsten CRUTCHLEY • Pete ASHMORE

Call for hivis heros!
In the last 3 years a total of 562 individuals have volunteered 2,929 times, so you can understand the ratio here, it is the same people stepping forward all the time. Some because they do love parkrun and volunteering, some as they worry that if the rosters are not filled then we will not be able to facilitate parkrun.
There has been a lot of occasions in 2018 that the poor roster coordinators are still trying to fill the roster on a friday night, which then has us all on edge wondering if the event will take place the following morning, and added stress for the RD who may have to then swap volunteers round to cover the essential duties if the roster has not been filled!
We really would love some new volunteers to step forward, and not just once but maybe think about a ratio to your running and give something back, 5 to 1 maybe, 10 to 1 even.
Full training will be given for all roles (if required) volunteering is fun, we can even bribe you with CAKE!
If you are unsure about volunteering please speak with the RD (always in the blue and white HIVIS) or even ask to shadow someone first if you have any fears, the only fear I have is that I am going to get fat…..parkrun is powered by CAKE and HIVIS heros :-)
Please email in to offer your help to beltonhousehelpers@parkrun.com or message on the facebook page.

That's all for now folks,see you in 3 sleeps!

Belton parkrun has had a fabulous 2018, looking back there has been fancy dress ago-go celebrating milestones, birthdays and even wedding runs. We had the best turnout ever on the the 3rd birthday party in November with an incredible 561 of you running, walking and jogging and don't forget the CAKE - Parkrun is powered on cake and hivis heros :-)
A huge thank you goes out to the volunteers, past, present and future that have made all the events take place and thank you to our hosts the National Trust.

A couple of little reminders as we go into 2019.

Please ensure you have either a printed barcode or one that has been purchased from the parkrun UK shop, we can only write down results where a barcode or token has not scanned.
If we are presented with a barcode number written down on paper or electronically on a phone we cannot accept these, one, it a parkrun UK rule - No barcode - no time and two, any results written down have to be manually loaded, and all this adds more time to the Run Directors day. Please do not be upset if the barcode scanners refuse to write your details down.

10 commandments of parkrun:
Go through the funnel only once
Do not dip out of the funnel, if you do not want your time recorded, just hand your token back.
Stay in order in the funnel
Be kind to all runners, joggers, walkers and hivis hero’s
Respect other park users
If your dog can get over excited please muzzle them, so we can all continue to run together with our 4 legged friends.
NO barcode, NO time, NO exceptions
Have fun
Volunteer occasionally
Hand back your token

We will be back on Tuesday 01st January, start time of 09:00, the Run Director will be prompt getting everyone off at 9am due to it being the only day that parkrunners can complete a local double parkrun. All facilities will be open as normal.

That's all for now folks, see you on Tuesday.

What a glorious festive parkrun, we were very lucky in comparison to last week's parkrun with what feels like minus temperatures, to this week around 7 degrees, with the sun shining down on Belton House and no wind, so all of this made for a very warm run, walk or jog.
349 of you ran, walked and jogged, 17 first timers, welcome to the parkrun family. 20 where first timers to Belton House, 30 recorded new personal bests and 27 different clubs took part.
Well done to each and everyone of you.

So many got on board with the festive costumes, was wonderful seeing so many santa's and elves, I even spotted Olaf who had a made a visit, the friendliest snowman in Arendelle.

The National Trust have kindly offered a donation point at the visitors reception area. Hope you have all been able to purchase an extra item with your festive shopping or why not donate you festive leftovers.
Thank you for supporting Grantham food bank.

We still have hi vis hero slots to fill for the 29th December and 01st January, so if you can give up an hour of your day to support your local free 5k parkrun please email the roster coordinators Richard and Claire at beltonhousehelpers@parkrun.com or message the face book page, nothing is difficult and full training will be given.
