Overview

Well done everyone!

The hero’s of the day our volunteer team. So as you are running, spare a thought to the marshals, the finish people, the scanners, the samplers, the results processors and all who before and after, put out and collect the kit.

This event is totally and utterly dependent on these dedicated people, offering their time and talents to parkrun each week. Our run requires eighteen to twenty volunteers per week. 

Many of the volunteers are runners who have helped today, so if you are a regular, consider helping once in a while and allow our volunteers to have a run.

Brian Beale, Mark Benton, Tracey Benton, Max Boyes, Craig Brown, Katrina Bufton, Naomi Chandler, Angela Clarke, Melanie Coles, Stephen Coles, Clive Dicker, Edwin Gaines, Vincent Reginald Huxtable, Pete Manning, Patrick Murray, Roger Pease, Matt Powell, Michael Reep, Roger Tolley, Jonathan Wickens, Stephen Wilcox, Cecilia Young

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun – Event number 161, 28th July 2018

Just when you thought it was safe to go on a parkrun following weeks of dry, sunny and hot weather the rain came, and did it arrive in style. A torrential downpour greeted everyone whilst they were out on course just to remind us all that we still live in an English climate and provided the topic of discussion that we love so much.

IMG_7533

In total, 257 runners completed today’s parkrun, including 34 first timers and parkrunners coming from destinations including Bournemouth, Birmingham and Lincoln to name a few. A big welcome to all our visiting parkrunners; we hope you enjoyed today’s event despite the interim downpour! Congratulations to Gavin Moorhead, our first parkrunner home today in 18:22, whilst our first female home was Rebecca Stewart in a personal best 22:11. Happy 50th parkruns to Clare Wood (53rd in 24:25) and Mark Russ (110th in 27:34). Whether you ran, jogged or walked today congratulations to you all.

IMG_7537 IMG_7554

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun #160 21.07.2018

Another hot one, but we shouldn't complain.  300 of you turned up to run today, with a few visitors boosting the numbers.

IMG_7135

We had no less than five members of the green 250 club, with Iain Hall topping the list and our record with an impressive 452 parkruns completed.  He is from Middlesborough, but looks like he's become a  parkrun tourist for the last few weeks. Hope you enjoyed our seaside parkrun. IMG_7184

At the other end of the scale we had 15 people doing their first ever parkrun, congratulations to you all and hope you will come again.

IMG_7457

Kayleigh Whitbread completed her 50th parkrun today, congratulations to you, and thanks for the treats.

IMG_7254

A big Thank You to our volunteers today, hopefully encouraging you round but secretly thinking rather you than me.

IMG_7484

We had a few extra volunteers today as it was Pacer week, and they were showing off our new "cool" pacer bibs.  Thank You for all the generous donations to our parkrun fund which enable us to buy bits of kit to make your parkrun experience more enjoyable.  You can still donate if you want to via out About us page  We now have bibs for times between 20-40mins and will vary them from month to month.  If you fancy trying out being a pacer yourselves, send us an email before our next pacer event (which will probably be Saturday 18th August)  Or you can sign up to volunteer for any roles via our volunteer page.

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun 14/07/2018 #159

Another glorious summers day at Burnham and Highbridge parkrun was enjoyed by 301 participants who walked, jogged and ran the course. 38 Personal Bests were recorded, proving that the heat was no match for some of you. We welcomed 30 first timers, some of whom were visiting and some who had just experienced their first ever parkrun. We hope you liked our event and will come back to us again in the future.

Today we were under the watchful eye of our new parkrun Ambassador Kirk Shepherd who came to introduce himself, see how we operate and to take part in the run. It was a pleasure to meet him and to hear he was pleased to see that we were upholding parkrun's high standards. So thank you to you all for making us look good :-)

IMG_6748Our thanks must also definitely be given to our superb volunteers who make this event happen week in week out. Without them we simply couldn't put on this successful show each Saturday.
