Summertime Camperdown parkrun

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!

parkrun 153 – parkrunning in the rain

It never rains at parkrun, right? Well, it rained on the recce run before hand, I can certainly say that!

As always, a big thank you to the volunteers, particularly for standing in the icy rain for an hour!

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. The course was also in good condition, if a tad 'squelchy' in the usual places. 140 parkrunners took to the course and the volunteers stayed in the sun to keep warm! Our post run hot drinks in the café warmed hands up nicely. Well done to everyone who ran & volunteered today - you were all fantastic!

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.

Event Report 118 – August 2nd 2014

Is it the Commonwealth Games effect or just the week of good weather we've had? We're not sure, but something brought you all out this morning, and a host of new parkrunners too.. It was great to be able to introduce so many of you to the parkrun family. We really hope you all enjoyed your run. Its a tough course, but it does get easier!

The first few home managed to make it back before the rain, but unfortunately we did all get a little bit wet this week. Third time in 118 weeks isn't too bad though we think!

We had two prizes to give out this week from our sponsor Adidas, which were picked randomly in the cafe afterwards. Prizes went to Gail Rattray and Jennifer Merry - you can pick up your prizes next week!

We have quite a lot of lost property building up now. If you have left something behind, please come and claim it. We'll be clearing out at the end of August and will give anything unwanted to charity.

A couple of little reminders to everyone too; any children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the run. This is simply for health and safety and insurance, and we have to stick to it. If you would like to run with your dog, you're very welcome to. We do ask though that you run with one dog, start at the back and keep it on a short lead so that everyone is happy.

Camperdown parkrun 116

"It never rains at parkrun"

Never. Apart from parkrun 116.

Despite Emma's assurance, pre-run, that 'mizzle' (part mist, part drizzle) is the ideal running condition, it rained. The marshals got a bit damp, and it was enough for Purple-hand Penman to don his poncho. A bit of rain wasn't going to dampen the spirits of Michelle Cooper, who ran this week in her Hen Party get-up:

Michelle and the DRR group at Camperdown

It was great to see Sarah Winter out at her first parkrun since giving birth to Murray, 3 weeks ago! Rumours that her first words after Murray arrived were "When can I start running again, I have the DRAM in under a month" are yet to be confirmed.

This weeks results are here - it's so great to see so many members of the 10, 50 and 100 clubs in the results: 31 out of 111 runners have a parkrun t-shirt, and you can add another 5 or 6 amongst the marshals. I don't know how many other parkruns can claim nearly 1/3 of their runners have a t-shirt....?

Every week we must thank our volunteers, for without them, there is no parkrun. We rely on them, so we rely on you! If you can volunteer at parkrun in the next few weeks, please let us know!

Good luck to all our friends involved in the DRAM and 1/2 DRAM on Sunday - will it rain? I suspect it'll be hot and humid - remember to take on plenty of fluids!

See you next week!

 

Event 115 – 12/7/14 – Visitors Galore!

This week saw another excellent morning for running (if a wee bit hot and muggy). The course was in tremendous condition so we had quite a few PB's among the 136 parkrunners, notably Lorraine Dunbar taking 1 second off her previous PB, set in August last year. Well done Lorraine!

Lots of parkrun tourists came to visit us this week, from Strathclyde, Aberdeen and Edinburgh parkruns - it was nice to see some faces again and meet new folk. There was plenty of good chat at the café post-run where ice cream & cakes were enjoyed. All our guests enjoyed their visit and the course, even the hills!

Looking forward to next week already - look out for the dancing marshal with the big foam hands...

Sunshine, new paths, and our first 100 T-shirt!

Running round the route at 8am yesterday, the sun was already out and shining, there wasn't a breath of wind, and it was perfect weather for running (in my opinion) so I knew it was going to be a hot one!
I started out on my recce run though, and had the brilliant surprise of some newly surfaced paths! The fist downhill, and the path past the playpark, have been resurfaced by the park, providing a lovely springy path to run on - perfect PB conditions. However if like John Toller you run too fast to notice what's going on around you, this might have made no difference at all.
We had another brilliant turnout this week, with 13 new runners, so welcome to you all, we hope you enjoyed your run! 37 runners got PBs this week, and there were many of you very close to PBs too. With the dry weather, hopefully so more of you will see improvements.
This week we gave out the June issue of Club t-shirts, with our first 100 Club t-shirt awarded to Brian Dunbar. 100 runs is an amazing acheivement. This week was Brian's 103rd parkrun too. So whe you see him next week, take a look at his special black t-shirt, and give him some respect!
Big thanks to our first runners in this week, especially Peter Flick, who pointed out that some of our markers on the final hill had been moved since we put them out. We don't think this affected anyone, but we're sorry if it caused any confusion. Unfortunately there's not a lot we can do to ensure this doesn't happen, as it was done between us putting cones out and runners passing. So please try to familiarise yourself with the route as well as possible, or follow the person in front of you. Hopefully we won't have any problems again!
Results for this week were quite impressive, with an especially fast time from Lynn Henderson, first female home in 19.26.
Full results are available on the results page.
Next week will see our second 100 Club member - and our first Junior 100 Club member - please come along and celebrate Danny Flynn's impressive tally!
