Burnham and Highbridge parkrun #182 22/12/2018

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun
Event number 182 - The Christmas edition
22nd December 2018

Well Christmas is well and truly in full swing and of course Parkrun being what it is fully embraces this wonderful time of the year. Today saw high spirits and some fantastic outfits on display!

IMG_6644

Pretty good course conditions today and just a small headwind on the seafront return meant some good times were posted.
Part of the attraction with the Park section is the ever-changing dynamic throughout the year. Today marked one of those times and we had our first sighting of the annual "water feature" thanks to the rising lake levels partly overflowing onto the path, luckily single-file traffic was easily able to get through without a diversion!
All these things make this location unique in character and such a great course.
IMG_6650

Today's special shout-out has to go to the exceptional group from Weston Whippets who not only have a great team spirit and fielded the largest single club attendance with an amazing field of 24 members but also ran the entire course (including right up to the barcode scanner) whilst singing Christmas carols!
Hats-off to you all - Aled Jones is quaking in his boots for the next xmas #1
IMG_7299

Another tip of the hat goes to one of our regular volunteers Georgina Della-Valle who took up her marshaling point with added cheer and provided a solo saxophone musical medley of seasonal jingles. Maybe join the Whippets next year and run alongside?

The pics

A common theme this week and any cares about clashing outfits with your best friend go right out of the window.

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun #181 15/12/2018

Oh yes, it was cold, it was windy and it was wet. It was also pretty dark as the thick, heavy, rain filled cloud did it’s best to keep any sunshine well and truly hidden. These conditions are tough but that’s what brings out the best in people and makes you stronger.  So, all this leads me to say a massive well done to the 155 runners, joggers and walkers who turned out today to take part.

DSC_4501

The conditions also made it extra challenging for the volunteers. We found an alternative position to erect the gazebo to give our amazing barcode scanning team some shelter.

DSC_4492

 

For anyone who knows a bit about taking photographs, spare a thought for our photographer today, Stuart Anderson. Not only was he challenged with keeping his lens dry, taking pictures of fast moving figures in the semi dark and keeping focus is a tall order and still managed some arty shots – amazing job Stuart.

 

DSC_4528

We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen: Stuart ANDERSON, Brian BEALE, Tracey BENTON, Mark BENTON, Julian BOLITHO, Ian BOOTH, Max BOYES, Tina BURROWS, Maria CASEY, Angela CLARKE, Steven DORRALL, Philip HOBBS, David HORWOOD, Vincent Reginald HUXTABLE, Robert JENNER, Toni MALLIN, Pete MANNING, Allan PENDLETON, Matt POWELL, Stephen WALKER, Jonathan WICKENS, Hayley WILD Why not get involved and volunteer?

 

Celebrating their 50th parkrun together today were regular volunteers Paul and Michelle Smith. Their balloons got lost somewhere along the way but we’re glad to say they made it back safely.
DSC_4493

Next week we get into the Christmas spirit and are inviting everyone to come along to parkrun in fancy dress in place of your normal running attire. We can’t wait!
