parkrun report – 12th January 2019 by Helen Pickering

Brueton parkrun
Event number 443
12th January 2019

Report

This week 694 people ran, jogged and walked the course, an event record. We’ve been seeing higher numbers the last few weeks, no doubt as a result of the inevitable New Year’s Resolutions and January keep fit kick. It’s great to see some new runners!

In fact, we had 100 first timers. Three were friends of mine, two of whom I have been badgering to come for some time! So a shout out to Louise EVERELL, Chris EVERELL and Jeni NEWBERY for making it along – we’ll see if they come back!

5 Random numbers

We had 70 new Personal Bests and in 70th place was Darren MAGGS.
He’s managed an impressive 156 runs and in 156th position was Mohammed Naveed TARIQ, a first timer at Brueton (welcome!) but it was his third run overall.
Mohammed was the 140th male finisher and in 140th place was Katie STEAD, who runs in the JW11-14 category. She finished in a very impressive 24:27. Katie has managed 46 parkruns
and in 46th was Mark MCCUTCHEON for his 13th parkrun.
In 13th position was Ainsley WAINWRIGHT.

parkrun report – 5th January 2019 by Fiona Penton

Brueton parkrun
Event number 442
5th January 2019

Report

The first official parkrun of the year and what an impressive turnout. 635 people braved the chill to run, walk, jog the 2 laps of the beautiful Brueton Park. It was inspiring to see so many new faces and the determination to run the course the best they could - we all have our own challenges. My challenge was to beat the kids to the finish line! I walked the first lap, then tagged teamed with Brett and away I went. Running the 2 laps before they finished walking the second. I can safely say, it was the most enjoyable parkrun I've had in awhile. Clear path, no children moaning at me, and the growing knowledge that I was going to beat the little beasties and by a good margin! Little victories and all. It wasn't about my time, or gaining a new PB, but for the shear joy of running.

Brueton had a tourist from Concord parkrun in Sheffield on Saturday, and I have decided to use their results to help me with the random stats:

5 Random numbers

118 people attended Concord at the weekend, the 118th finisher at Brueton was Tony HUGHES, with a time of 23:58.

It was Concord's 415th event, the 415th finisher was Linda Michele WHITEHEAD, with a time of 30:51.

There were 5 under 11s at Concord, the quickest in position 71, with a time of 28:28 (dam him! grr) Lorraine FRANCIS, in position 314th, also had a time of 28:28 - just shows what a busy parkrun we have at Brueton!

Concord had 29 new people to their course on Saturday, the 29th finisher at Brueton was Peter SHACKLADY, with a time of 20:21.

parkrun report – 1st January 2019 by Alex Brown

Brueton parkrun
Event number 441
1st January 2019

Report

Things returned to relative normality at Brueton Park on the morning of the first of January. There were no Santas or elves running as there had been at the previous couple of events, but there were 557 people who were determined to kick off their 2019 by running, walking or jogging their way around the course.

Among those 557 parkrunners there were a great many who decided that the opportunity to ‘do the double’ was just too good to pass up! At Brueton we were joined by visitors from various other Midlands parkruns, most notably the Kingfisher Harriers from Arrow Valley in their bright orange t-shirts. Well done to everyone who completed the course, where you travelled from near or far.

After running at Brueton at our usual 0900 start time, it was our turn to be tourists. I expected to see a few familiar faces when we made our way to Kingsbury Water Park, but I was amazed to see just how many other people had decided to make the same trip for their 1030 start. In fact, the turnout at KWP was so great that they set a new attendance record with 792 runners! Well done to everyone who made the trip to Kingsbury, or elsewhere, for a spot of tourism

Whether you were one of the 557 at Brueton, the 792 at Kingsbury, or if you were one of the 38 volunteers at Brueton (or all of the above), I hope your first parkrun experience of 2019 was a great one!

Brueton parkrun
Event number 440
29th December 2018

Report

9am on the 29th of December saw the final Brueton parkrun of 2018 and the 440th total Brueton parkrun. We had an astonishing amount of parkrunners (564) turn up to shake off that Christmas Turkey. The rain managed to hold off for what was a surprisingly pleasant morning to run on. I think there may have even been a slight glimpse of sunlight. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out not just today but throughout the year. Personally, this week, I completed my 30th run of the year and a 5th time volunteering.

2018 enjoyed a total of 49 parkruns at Brueton and many more welcomed new faces to the parkrun community. I hope you all have a wonderful, safe new year and I hope to see you all back in 2019.

As it's the 440th run the parkrunner who finished in 440th was an unknown runner with a time of around 33:10

Brueton parkrun
Event number 439
25th December 2018

Report

93,059 started their Christmas Day with a parkrun at over 400 locations worldwide. That’s incredible. 2018 was the year that Brueton parkrun put on their 9th Christmas Day Special, dating back to 2010. This was my 4th Christmas Day parkrun and I’m always amazed to see so many people involved whether they’re walking, jogging, running, volunteering or even supporting all of the above from the side lines. I couldn’t think of a better example of showing Christmas spirit than what parkrun has to offer. Thank you to those that volunteer and give to their local community putting on such a great show.

5 Random numbers(Nativity Special)

54 – Mary HEALD who ran in 21:34 on her 70th parkrun
