Run Report Event No 760 – 10 November 2018

 

The Apricot Season

 
IMG_1562
 
Autumn was all around us in the park this week; butter yellow, apricot and scarlet leaves fluttered against a bright blue sky and the thermometer didn't dip below 11 degrees.  In fact it was a perfect Saturday morning for a run / walk in our favourite park with our best parkrun buddies.
 
IMG_1488
 
Visitors
 
IMG_1503
 
There were around 20 or so runners visiting from East London Runners. They usually run at either Valentines parkrun in Ilford or Wanstead Flats parkrun. This week they had a burning urge to get up at 6am and come to Bushy to meet with Bushy regular Nick Rowe (far right) - that's his position, not his politics!
 
IMG_1495
 
From left to right Niamh, Neasa, Trish, Olivia, Romy and Ciara.
 
Also visiting from St Anne's parkrun in Dublin were Ciara and her daughter Olivia, and Neasa and her daughter Romy (more of her later) and their friend Trish.  They were visiting Niamh, a Bushy regular. There was a fair bit of competition between the sisters to see who could get the fastest time, but it looks like Niamh just nailed it!
 
We also had our fair share of elite athletes. Those of you who ran at Bushy on 25th August will remember we had the pleasure of hosting Team GB 1500m runner Jake Wightman, who set us off on our run, and helped with scanning. He promised he would be back over the winter when his training schedule allowed and true to his word he was back today (more of his results later).
 
IMG_1566
 
Elite selfie: Also visiting were Emma Pallant, World Duathlon Champion; Michelle Dillon, Olympic Triathlete for Team GB (now retired); and Stuart Hayes, Team GB Triathlete

The Main Event
 
IMG_1507
 
We were in the safe hands of Run Director Simon Lane and his trusty stepladder. It had rained all night so the ground was a bit wet but conditions were pretty good and 114 of you managed a PB!  Well done to all 1280 runners and walkers.

It seems a fitting time to remind everyone of the importance of Bushy Park during WW11 as the Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF). Every week we run past these plaques in the ground commemorating the site of the buildings that made up the US Military base that was Camp Griffiss.  It was here that officials including General Eisenhower planned the D- Day invasion.  This plaque indicates the north west corner of block A, and is past the 3km point, not far from where we turn left onto Chestnut Avenue.
 
IMG_1539
 
Personally I always try to spot one as I run past as it gives me a little boost at a point when I'm usually flagging.   There are 16 plaques marking the corners of the four main blocks A-D, so if you're ever looking for an adventure on a quiet afternoon in Bushy park you know what to do.

There were a few large puddles on Cobblers Walk, but cunningly most people managed to avoid them.

Run Report Event No 759 – 3 November 2018

 

A visitor's perspective...

 
BP1
BP2

This week on my travels was the Pilgrimage to Bushy Park, home of the original parkrun. I was joined by 1,435 other runners, joggers and walkers in a beautiful location. Before the start I wandered around the park and saw a number of great sights, such as a Heron by the lake and a Stag gracefully walking through the trees. The first time I’ve see both at a parkrun location! I was warmly greeted by Andrew Howarth, who later on welcomed all new-comers to parkrun and first timers at Bushy Park.

Milestones

10 Club
Five juniors completed their 10th run to claim the pristine white shirt: well done to Maddy WHITMAN, Joseph EYSSELL, and Charlotte PHILLIPS.

50 Club
Six runners reached the milestone of 50 this week: Ian PEGGS, Ellen SUGDEN, Peter STEVENS, Stella HAMMOND, Jason BISS and Emma RAO. Ellen was making her pilgrimage from Cardiff and Ian had managed to arrange his 50th run bang on his 50th birthday. Hats off if he manages that on his next milestone, but I suspect he might do it sooner than that.
Meanwhile Stella had brought along some signatory cake and Prosecco to mark her milestone. Stella did her first run on her birthday on New Year’s Eve 2016. There’s always a party on Stella’s birthday.

Run Report Event No 757 – 20 October 2018

 

The first cold one

 

Arriving at Bushy Park this morning, there was a mist across the bracken, a beautiful blue sky and a wintry sun. The car thermometer read 6.5 degrees, so the new season is truly upon us.

The cold one

Two tables were already set up for milestone celebrations for Maxine and Suzanne (more of them later). There are now so many participants at Bushy, there appears to be a cake and Prosecco celebration nearly every week, a definite bonus!

 

Tourists

 

On the way to the start, I met several tourists. Glenn, a first timer at Bushy Park, who was with Mel, a Run Director of Cheshunt junior parkrun. Mel has volunteered an amazing 199 times in various positions. Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

Jenny from Markeaton parkrun and Laura from Melton Mowbray were both looking forward to their first runs at the home of parkrun.

Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

I walked down towards the start with Steven, Judith, Liz and Jimmy. Us soft southerners thought it a bit chilly, but this group put us straight about real cold! Their home parkrun is Druridge Bay in Alnwick on the beautiful Northumberland coast. Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

This week there were 131 first timers, many of whom attended the briefing, ably presented by Simon Lane (Happy Birthday Simon!).

Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

At the start, I found Maxine with a 100 balloon, and Carolyn, who was celebrating with her; Carolyn had completed her 100 a couple of weeks before. Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

I also found three generations of Crosthwaites raring to go (looking good there Grandpa Alan!) Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

This week there were 1274 runners who passed through the finish and queued in Ray’s beautifully constructed funnel.

So, for me, it turned out to be ‘Bring your Manager to parkrun day’. A few of weeks ago, I happened to mention to my manager that I was doing parkrun on Saturday morning. He hadn’t heard of it, (really?!), neither had colleague Barbara. I extolled the virtues of a Saturday morning well spent at parkrun and suffice to say, they came, they saw, they ran, they’re hooked! Two more converts to the cause – Garo and Barbara, take a bow!

Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

 

Celebrations

 

Another parkrun comes to an end – and back to that cake and Prosecco. Congratulations again to Maxine and Carolyn, for completing 100 parkruns. Maxine’s grandson (sorry a bit hidden from view) ran all the way round with her, having never done Parkrun before, well done young man.Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

 

A great milestone for Suzanne, 250 parkruns, 248 of them being at Bushy Park – congratulations Suzanne.

Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

Congratulations too, to Martin, who won the Most Improved Runner award at the 2018 Bushy parkrun Awards on October 6th. Martin wasn’t there on the day to receive his Award, so it was presented to him today by Rob. Huge congratulations Martin, hope you enjoyed celebrating in the sunshine today with family and friends. Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

 

Milestones this week

 

Completing their 10th runs for a Milestone t-shirt were juniors: Digby Turk (JM11-14), Alice Roberts (JW11-14) PB today, Annabelle Frampton (JW11-14) PB today, Jack Small (JM10), Daniel Rust (JM10) PB today, Gabriel Keech (JM10) and Ella Brooks (JW11-14).

Joining the 50 club were: Chris Brook, Helen Batten, and Polly Mattia.

Joining the 100 club were: Rich McAleer (well done for achieving a PB on your 100th run), Stephen Hird, Matthew Houghton, Nick Hanson, Peter Walker, Maxine Kelly, and Tim Bartholomew.

PBs for 229 participants today, well done everybody.

40 returners for what is often the difficult͛ 2nd run – well done all.

 

Finally, a very happy birthday to Wally who ducked under 40 minutes on his 83rd birthday - fantastic. Wally is a joy to know, and I missed taking his picture, so I am using a bit of artistic licence. In true Blue Peter style – here’s one I made earlier! I took this picture of Wally with his daughter last year on what was his 400th parkrun. He has now completed 455 runs, including two as a tourist this year, on a parkrun holiday where he ran the Etna Parkrun and the Favorita Parkrun along with Parkrun founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt.

Meanwhile in Italy........A group of Bushy parkrun stalwarts were taking part in the Treviso parkrun – you might recognise a few faces here.

Bushy Parkrun report 20th October 2018

 

That’s parkrun done for another week. Have you ever wondered what happens to all the stuff? It ends up in the garage of one of our volunteers.
