parkrun 197 – Soggy Bottom

The rain, then the ice, and this week?  Great conditions, although the bottom end of the course was pretty soggy, as usual.

A massive thanks to those Camperdown parkrunners who have already donated money to the defibrillator fund, we've already hit the £750 mark, and need only £250 to reach our target.  I hope we never have to use it, but having it at the run each week will be a great reassurance to us all, I'm sure.

It's our 200th birthday in 3 weeks.  So we're having a party - 13th February, our 200th birthday ties in nicely with Valentine's day, so the theme will be red, flowers, velvet cakes, roses, love, and all that...

Like the Queen, we have two birthdays, so our official birthday is in May - more details of that party to come later.  Remember that the points competition runs from May to May, so the competition is really hotting up now.

Same time and place next week!

2.  Gillian Sangster

3.  Anna Bennet

Camperdown parkrun 182

The sun always shines on TV.
It never rains at parkrun.

It was pretty miserable on the recce run at 08:15 though. It brightened up as the morning went on, and we had a thoroughly glorious parkrun.

Three firsts:

1) for the first time we had no-one at the first timers' briefing! No visitors, no first timers, just me, standing by myself. The 7 people who were *actually* first timers in the results? They were obviously shy...

2) for the first time we have no 'unknown athletes' on the results. This is probably not as exciting to the runners, but is a major milestone for the run directors!

3) for the first time the first placed runner, and the last placed runner were related! Son Chris Walsh, and Mother Viv Walsh topped and tailed the results this week. At least I think they're Mother and Son - there were kisses at the finish....

***Next week it's FANCY DRESS HALLOWEEN parkrun*** Drag out your skeleton, witch, ghoul, ghost, and whatever else, costumes, and come and run at Camperdown.

Thanks to all the volunteers this week, and thanks to next week's too - we've already filled the roster!

See you next week.

It might have rained all week but it never rains at parkrun, so by 09:30 the sun was out and 153 runners gathered to run round Camperdown.

I like doing the new/visiting parkrunners' briefing - it's always nice to hear how far some people have come, and see how many people have taken the first step into the parkrun journey. One parkrunner cycled all the way up from London, so mad keen was he on running at our park!

It never rains at parkrun, but it sometimes ‘Mizzles’

149 parkruns, and it's never rained once! Well, maybe once or twice. This week it was a sort of drizzly mist type rain that I'm reliably informed is known as 'missile'. It was enough to make me wipe my glasses, but not enough to dampen the spirits of our Camperdown parkrun faithful.

Even with the poor weather, and the Cupar 5 Mile Road Race in the afternoon, there was a great turnout of 139 runners. We have a lot of returning parkrunners, 25 50-club members, and 13 100-club members at this week's run. But we're still recruiting - 8 first timers, and 41 runners still in single figures. We're particularly encouraged by our returning runners - we know the run is tough, but no-one seems to be put off by it!

Many of our runners were out at the Cupar 5 Mile Road Race on Saturday afternoon too - great running by lots of Hawks and DDRs, and others. Particular mention to: James Donald, fastest junior, and 3rd overall; Johnny McBain, 6th overall; Billy Gibson, 7th overall; DDR/M3's David Stewart, 2nd MV50; Innes Bracegirdle, 2nd FV50; Ruth Toller 3rd FV60. (John and I ran too!)

Full results here

Next week is pacing week at Camperdown parkrun - we have pacers from 22:30 all the way to 35:00. If you are after a pacer to get you under 20 minutes, you'll have to fend for yourselves! Someone at the sharper end will let you know if they're likely to run sub 20 - just keep them in sight, if you can.

Thanks to all the volunteers:

Run Director - Tom Fardon
Timekeeper - Peter Derrick
Backup Timer - Pete Bracegirdle
Barcodes - Paul Reed
Barcodes - Steve Matthews
Barcodes - Innes Bracegirdle
Tokens - Carolyn Webber
Marshal 1 - Tracey McFee
Marshal 2 - Karen Campbell
Marshall 3 - Dave and Rory Davies
Tail Runner - Margaret Davidson

I'm on call next weekend, so no parkrunning for me, but Kenny P will keep you all right, I'm sure.

Beautiful but chilly! Winter’s a comin’! parkrun 131 – 08.11.14

We had a fresh, chilly but beautiful morning for today's Camperdown parkrun. The park was looking fantastic in full autumn colours.

Event 126 – Run report

Well after last week's torrential rain and miserable conditions, it could only have been better really, but we were blessed with a lovely crisp and bright morning for parkrun this week. And what a great turnout we had too. There were 22 new parkrunners welcomed into the family this week. Its great to see so many new people coming along each week, and we really hope you enjoy your run and come back again. Although hopefully we won't have everyone along on the same morning - we now have 2263 runners registered with Camperdown as their home run!

This week, Brian Middleton joined the 100 Club - a massive acheivement so well done from all the Camperdown team! Your new tshirt will be on its way soon.

We are starting to get into our winter running conditions in Camperdown. For those of you who haven't run with us over a year yet, this can mean frost, ice, mud and snow - its great fun! But it does mean that you are better off with some good off-road trail shoes. If you don't have a pair yet, why not visit Sweatshop and see what they have? A pair of shoes with good grips, will make you feel much safer when running in the park.
