Run Report 30th June

Cannon Hill parkrun, Birmingham
Event number 395
30th June 2018

Wow, what a day to do my first ever ‘First Timers Briefing’; 141 first timers joined us today , including around 100 runners from the Couch to 5k group from the Ramgharia Sikh Temple in Birmingham, led by Fauja Singh, who holds a number of records and, at age 107 is one of the world’s oldest marathoners. We were even joined by a TV crew so you might spot yourself on the Central News coverage here: http://www.itv.com/news/central/2018-06-30/107-year-old-marathon-runner-leads-group-of-sikhs-at-park-run/.

Fortunately, Dave CHAPMAN was on hand to lead the larger briefing whilst I welcomed our other first timers and parkrun tourists from as far afield as Edinburgh, Leeds, Northampton and Worthing (including the Worthing parkrun mascot, Gulliver the seagull!) I hope you all enjoyed the run and will be back to see us again soon.

The sun was shining for us and, thanks to the core team, we were able to run in the park today in spite of the busy set up of ‘In the Night Garden’ on our usual route. The alternative course was a straightforward three laps (four times past the tea rooms) and the volunteers did a great job in marshalling the course and welcoming the many visitors.

This week 781 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 88 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 42 different clubs took part (Kings Heath Running Club fielded 43 members in the battle of the local clubs). Local runner, Jack GRAY, relocated to Cambridge and Coleridge AC, was the first finisher in 15:03 and the first female finisher was Constance NANKIVELL from East Sutherland AC in 19:05.

Joining the parkrun 50 club this week were Rachel KILGALLON, Hannah BROWN and Andrea EHGARTNER; whilst Brenda HINES did her 100th run.

The event was made possible by 35 volunteers:
Martin FOSTER • Barrie Moelwyn Antony ROBERTS • Dave R JOHNSON • Helen BLOOMER • Chris HARRISON • Jort Michiel VAN MOURIK • Matthew James BROCKINGTON • David CHAPMAN • Vanessa BEECH • Graham LAWRENCE • Keith EVANS • Richard GIBBS • Stacey MARSTON • Sylvia HUGHES • Chrissie BOYER • Geoffrey HUGHES • Chris OXLEY • Lee J GREGORY • Rachel BROWN • Barbara TEFFER • Paul GRIZZELL • Oliver BROWN • Chris FISHER • Liz DEXTER • Aaron LLOYD-MCARTHUR • Stuart BRINDLEY • Vikki HARMAN • Lottie STONE • Greg MCCANN • Kamaljit SINGH SAHOTA • Ceri ARMSTRONG • Louis MACINTOSH • Thomas HAHN • Amanda HAHN • Oliver GREGORY

The event can’t happen without volunteers, so if you’ve been thinking of volunteering why not join us next week – there’s a role to suit everyone, and volunteering is a wonderful way to make friends, feel great and have fun. If you'd like to help, please take a look at the Future Roster page and drop our volunteer co-ordinator an email with the date(s) you'd like to volunteer on. Visit our FAQ to learn all about volunteering at parkrun.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Cannon Hill parkrun, Birmingham Results Page.

The female record is held by Hannah WALKER who recorded a time of 16:31 on 15th September 2012 (event number 107). The male record is held by Matt JACKSON who recorded a time of 14:45 on 25th June 2016 (event number 298).
The Age Grade course record is held by Melanie JAMES who recorded 91.35% (19:04) on 2nd June 2018 (event number 391).

Cannon Hill parkrun, Birmingham started on 28th August 2010. Since then 19,293 participants have completed 166,083 parkruns covering a total distance of 830,415 km, including 28,837 new Personal Bests.

Look forward to seeing you again next Saturday. Don’t forget your barcode!

23rd June – Temporary course at Holders Lane

Due to the Foodies Festival in Cannon Hill park, parkrun will be relocating on 23rd June to Holders Lane playing fields.

The new route should be fun but as it is the first time running it there could be some slow points or minor confusions so if you are looking for a PB this week will not be the time to do it! Many thanks to all the volunteers who have already stepped forward to help at this exciting event.

The link to the route in Strava is as below but full briefing will be given at 8.45

https://www.strava.com/segments/17728634?filter=overall

  • The route is partly on tracks and trails and grass and unfortunately is not suitable for any type of buggy.
  • Extra care will be needed to avoid tripping over tree roots and stones.
  • Dogs are welcome on a very short lead and not overtaking at any single track point

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday for a fun time! Helen and Geoff
