Bournemouth parkrun run report #219 7/10/17

Thanks to Matthew Kay for this weeks run report

Anyone who knows me knows I love to write a run report but this is my first time doing one for Bournemouth parkrun and it's been a weekend of firsts as yesterday I ran my first marathon.

I always champion the course of volunteering whenever I do parkrun and that's because whilst it's great to run a PB and improve your times everyone deserves a break and that includes the volunteers.

Wherever I parkrun there are always a core group of volunteers and they're the fulcrum and backbone of that particular parkrun but that core group of volunteers needs support and if each runner can volunteer three times a year then that staffs parkrun forever more. It also gives your legs a rest and recovery is so important for running to ensure optimal performance. So if every now and again you give a bit back you'll be rewarded too not just through the thanks from the grateful run directors but from enhanced performance through resting the legs.

In terms of the run itself, the wet drizzle didn't dampen runners spirits or affect the turn out with nearly 500 runners taking part in the 5k. There was a good collection of visitors amongst the regulars no doubt in town for the marathon festival. With runners turning out from a collection of clubs including Buckinghamshire and Stowe, deckchair dynamos and vegan runners.

Andrew Ridley from Veterans AC was first home in a time of 17.26 and an age grade of 86.71- great effort Andrew.

Jennifer McBain of Alchester RC was First Lady in a time of 19.33 and an age grade of 78.26- well done Jennifer and well done to all the other runners who joined us for parkrun on 7 October!

 

Bournemouth parkrun #203 – 17th June 2017

Bournemouth parkrun report 17th June 2017

'Feeling hot, hot, HOT!!!'
It was definitely a warm one today at Bournemouth's 203rd parkrun. The crowds descended on King's Park with neither the humongous Southampton or Poole parkruns taking place today.
The sweltering temperatures didn't put anyone off with 62 Bournemouth first timers. There were a staggering 46 new PB's, which equates to exactly a 10th of the field, with 460 runners crossing the line today.
Big shout outs go to Mitchell Griffiths, Tony Clifton and Laura Read who all earn a red t-shirt for completing 50 parkruns. Peter Hellawell and Steve Elson from Littledown Harriers, Premkumar Jayapaul from Christchurch Runners and Agnes Ale all hit the 100 milestone this week too. Well done to all - amazing achievements!
Now, along with most of the south coast I will go and make the most of the beautiful place we live and hit the beach!
See you all next Saturday at 9am.

Bournrmouth parkrun Event #198 – 13/5/17

Run Report - Bournemouth parkrun 13.5.17
Naomi Stanley

Happy Saturday, or should I say happy parkrun-day! With the clouds clearing over Bournemouth we said hello to parkrun number 198.
Today saw an astounding 499 parkrunners sprint, run, jog and propel themselves around King’s Park in a sea of multi-coloured attire.
Big congratulations to Ewan Forsyth and Michael Jackson who both completed their 50th parkruns today and even better both got new PB’s! Red t-shirts in the post. Huge well done to Allan Watt and Pawel Surowiec who completed their 100th parkruns today too – hope to see you both in your new black t-shirts soon.
Big kudos to all the first timers on the course today, and a special high five to Evie Brunton and Eliana Cherrett. Both in the junior category and kept me company whilst I was on tail-running duty earlier. These two little ladies will be the ones to watch in the future!
The biggest shout out and thank you goes to all the volunteers, as without them this isn’t possible and 499 people would have been left parkrun-less this morning. If you want to volunteer in future weeks just email bournemouthhelpers@parkrun.com
