Blickling parkrun #235 – 16th June 2018

We continue to have problems with parkrunners entering the finish funnel incorrectly. Some simple rules; 1. Only enter the finish tunnel if you have completed the 5K course. 2. Only enter the finish tunnel once. 3. If you enter the finish funnel you MUST take a finish token. At Saturday's parkrun two people entered the finish tunnel having only completed three quarters of a lap - this caused me more than three hours of extra work to try and sort out the results. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE just obey these simple rules and you will make life much easier for your lovely volunteers.
Anyway, back to the actual parkrun. Another glorious day in our lovely park, which 257 of you took advantage of. These included 45 first timers at Blickling Parkrun, 13 of whom were complete beginners. Welcome to; Tim, Hannah, Leah and Steve Burt, Rebecca, Sarah, Sophie, Tanya, Anna, Kate, Ben and Sian - we hope to see you again next week.
36 PBs were recorded, including Sam and Ryan, the first two parkrunners over the line in 16.44 and 1647 respectively. My friend David Butler equalled his PB - it's there for the taking David!
I look forward to seeing you all next week and don't forget - IF IT'S SATURDAY, IT'S PARKRUN DAY.

 

Blickling parkrun #220 – 24th February 2018

Blickling parkrun Well, another glorious day in the history of Blickling parkrun, with 205 parkrunners turning out on a bright, but breezy, day to run, jog and walk around our beautiful parkland setting. Firstly, I must say a big than you to Run Director, Neil Anderton and the Dereham Runners AC crew who took over all the volunteer slots today. I think that you will all agree that they did a cracking job.Welcome to our first timers today, Elizabeth, Emma, Brian, another Elizabeth, Adele, Mark, Steven, Abigail and Ian. We hope that you enjoyed the experience and come back again next week. Lots of PBs today, in fact 34 of them. Congratulations in particular go to Nigel Smith who got a PB of 23.59 today at his 99th parkrun and also to Alan Butterworth in 24.02 on his 120th parkrun. It was a close run thing for a couple of my friends today; Sally Bardsley was just one second behind her PB and Helene Hagon was only three seconds away from beating her best. I claim all the credit because I'm convinced that they were chasing me. It won't be long before it'll be the other way round. Don't forget, IF IT'S SATURDAY, IT'S PARKRUN DAY. Best wishes from Mick Liston

 

Blickling parkrun #216 – 27th January 2018

A personal milestone reached for me today after completing my 100th parkrun. Congratulations also go to Rebecca and Max Westmoreland who both finished their 100th parkruns - I hope that you enjoyed your balloon! Once again we were blessed with another glorious day and 246 of you took the opportunity to run, jog and walk around our lovely course. There were 14 first timers today, amongst whom was Gordon Lindsay, who I managed to chat with before his run - he looked like he might have actually enjoyed the run when I saw him at the finish. I hope that you took my advice to leave some gas in the tank so that you can get a PB next week Gordon. Welcome also to first timers at Blickling, Katie and Darren who were visiting from their home parkrun at Wimpole.

I have made a video of my run today and will publish it as soon as I have done some suitable editing. James Anderton was present today taking photographs so you will probably be able to see yourself in all your athletic glory very soon. Lovely to see you all today and we look forward to seeing you all again next week. Remember, 'If it's Saturday it's parkrun day'.
