We had some tourists with us today, including Maeve and Donna from North Belfast Harriers in err… Belfast, funnily enough!  A shout out to Geoff of Kinross Road Runners and Ruth from Hampshire.  And a welcome home to Suzie and Alan, who’ve been Down Under and are now back in the Hove Park fold.

Just the one milestone run today: for Benjamin William Stevens who was celebrating a 50th run – congratulations, and we look forward to seeing you in your red t-shirt soon!

Brighton & Hove parkrun #560 June 30th

Summer Sporting Frenzy…

As a Run Director, you always have a few things on your mind in the build up to Saturday morning – Have the scanners and laptop been charged? Do I wear the pink or the blue and white high-viz? Did I leave the iron on? How many volunteers do we have?  The answer to the last question was volunteers galore – thanks to all of you and to the members of Brighton & Hove Woman’s Running Club who donned with high-viz this week. 

This weeks’ role of honour was as follows –

Andrew BROOKS  •  Anne BALDWIN  •  Brian RUSSELL  •  Calum SALMONS  •  Caroline MASON  •  Cheryl COSTELLO  •  Daniel GENT  •  Daniel PORGES  •  David KEMP  •  Eddie MEEGAN  •  Emma HOPWOOD  •  Frank SERADI  •  George WALLACE  •  Iain MARTIN  •  Imogen WALLACE  •  Isobel MACKENZIE  •  James ADAMS  •  Jenny PREECE  •  Joan LENNON  •  John ELBOURNE  •  John P DOHERTY  •  Juliet GREENWOOD  •  Laura GIFFORD  •  Lindsay ADAMS  •  Lisa ELBOURNE  •  Lucy ROBERTS  •  Lydia VYE  •  Michael MILLER  •  Michelle BOND  •  Michelle Lorraine BLACKWELL  •  Mike BALDWIN  •  Naomi SHARP  •  Peter GOLTON  •  Richard SMITH  •  Sarah ARJUN  •  Sue BRUMWELL  •  Susie BARTLETT  •  Zachary WALL  •  Zoe CHERRYMAN

The BHWRC were a busy bunch – as well as volunteering there was the fantastic charity cake sale and the graduation of their beginners group who were running their debut parkrun. It was fantastic to see so many smiling happy faces as they crossed the finish line.  

Here are a few words of thanks from Carol Grant from BHWRC –

“Thank you lovely parkrunners for your support for our sale of cakes and running related painted pebbles this morning. You raised an astonishing £346.70 for our charity of the year Brighton Women's Centre. Lots of parkrun love from the Brighton and Hove Women's Running Club”

A total of 348 of you lined up at the start, including 24 first timers and visitors from Sittingbourne, Hailsham, and Manchester – we hope you enjoyed our parkrun and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

So to the scores on the doors and the 1,2,3 for the Ladies & Gents

Ladies – 1st was Harriet BLOOR in 19:55, 2nd was Olivia WEBB 20:16 and Martha SACREE 3rd in 21:01 

Gents - 1st was Andrew MCCASKILL in 16:13,2nd was Josh MUTCH in 16:46 and David BENTON 3rd in 17:28. 

On the milestone front, congratulations to James OPENSHAW and Ronnie SMITH on their 100th run and Karen BURGOYNE on her 250th.

Until next Saturday, have a great running week, enjoy the World Cup, Wimbledon and see you at Hove Park for more summer running. Oh and before I forget - the answers to the other questions were Yes, Pink and No,

Brian

 

 

 

Brighton and Hove parkrun no 560 – 30 June ’18

Sorry folks – I have no time for a full run report this week. Suffice it to say we had a splendid day for parkrun as the sun shone throughout and everyone seemed happy. I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who came along from the Brighton and Hove Women’s Running Club. They marshalled the course for us and also brought a table which was weighed down with lots of lovely home made cakes for sale. The money raised from their cake sale went to support the Brighton Women’s Centre, a very worthy cause. Thank you so much to all of them and to you of course for buying cakes and supporting their fundraising efforts.

I hope our visitors enjoyed themselves – I spoke to some from Sittingbourne in Kent and from Blickley parkrun near Norwich.

And well done to Karen Burgoyne for completing her 250th parkrun and to Ronnie Smith and James Oppenshaw for each completing their 100th runs.
