Canons Park parkrun Number 68

Our second parkrun of the year was a little warmer and every so slightly less muddy than the last few weeks have been! We welcomed 118 people to Canons Park this week, with 23 people being first timers to Canons. We want to say thank you to those of you who travelled far to be with us (we welcomed runners from Hertfordshire, Edinburgh and even an RD from South Africa!). Of the 23 first timers, 13 of our runners completed their first ever parkrun! It's lovely to see so many new faces; we hope you continue to enjoy parkrun and return again soon!

19 of our runners recorded personal bests this week, which included 8 people who were doing their second parkrun. Well done guys, you should all be proud of your achievements!

Our first finishers today were:

Men - Daniel Dalquen

Women - Katie Self

Boys - Aaron O'Connell (who actually finished first - well done Aaron!)

Girls - Maryam Janmohamed

As always, we need to say a massive thank you to all of our volunteers this weekend - we couldn't hold a parkrun without them. This week's volunteers were: Mark MULVENNA • Meryl WALKER • Lily WALKER • Wendy MULVENNA • Shama MEGHJEE-CAINE • Cara MISAN • Andrew SOUTHERLAND-KIRBY • Sean SOUTHERLAND-KIRBY • Kanti VARSANI • Florentina COLACIOIU • Soraya JANMOHAMED • Christine LENNON • Kevin ZIANTS • Sharon LAIFER • Evie LAIFER

We would love it you could volunteer occasionally too - none of our roles are too hard (all necessary training is given) and its a really rewarding role! Look at our future roster on the Canons Park parkrun website to see what is available then email us or message us on Facebook to tell us what you would like to do.

I hope you guys have a good week and that we will see plenty of you again next Saturday.

Canons Park parkrun Number 66

It was the last parkrun of 2017, but my first time as run director. We have seen all the different weather, temperatures and terrains at Canons Park parkrun in 2017 like ice, frost, rain and sun which seems a distant memory at the moment.

The best way to describe the course was cross country. The finish was definitely a soggy area! Not wanting to spoil the fun for the cross-country fans who like jumping in puddles but keen to make sure that everyone stayed upright as they entered and exited the funnel, a hasty revision was made to stay on the path.

We celebrated Callum Smyth's 50th parkrun.

However just because it was muddy, it didn’t slow or stop anyone zooming across the finish line. Paul Oxley was the first man and Katie Schwarzmann was the first woman. The first junior boy was Toby Martley and Maryam Janmohamed was the first junior girl.

This event was not possible without the help of all our volunteers : Alisha SIDIK • Alyson ANGELIDES • Andrew SOUTHERLAND-KIRBY • Ariff SIDIK • Brian MCGRORY • Chris PARKINSON-BEST • Chris WOODWARD • Craig CHAPMAN • John AYTON • Olivia PARKINSON-BEST • Owen PARKINSON-BEST • Sakina SIDIK • Sean SOUTHERLAND-KIRBY • Wendy MULVENNA • Zaheer SIDIK.

Hope to see you all at the parkruns in 2018 and have a happy new year!

Canons Park parkrun Number 65

What a special morning to be spending with our parkrun family! I'd like to thank everyone for joining us for our special Christmas day event at Canons Park. The weather didn't quite stay dry for us, but no one let that stop them enjoying the festivities taking place in the park.

Special thanks must go to all the volunteers who demonstrated true selflessness on such a busy morning in many peoples' lives. To come out and participate in a Christmas Day parkrun is one thing. To come out on Christmas morning to volunteer to make the event happen for others is an extra level of special! So thank you to my fellow Christmas Day volunteers: Liz ABRAHAMS • Irene PAULL • Kirit LADVA • Brian MCGRORY • John AYTON • Craig CHAPMAN • Bilal ALI • Andrea RYAN • Clive LLOYD • Alice MULVENNA.

Congratulations to our festive first finishers:

  • Quentin Harding (men)
  • Joanne Kent (women)
  • Luca Ghai Matharu (boy)
  • Isabella D'amico (girl).

We had ten people join us for their very first parkrun. Well done to all of you and we hope you enjoy it enough to come back sometime! Another 50 parkrunners were joining us from other events from neighbouring events such as Harrow and Gladstone parkruns and further afield including Nottingham, Wales and Ireland. A special congratulations must also go out to Christina Brady and Wendy Mulvenna for achieving their 50 milestones on Christmas Day and Andrew Clery for doing so on the 23rd of December at this event.

Wishing you all a very happy festive season, however you are spending your time.

Canons Park parkrun Number 64

We were so happy to welcome 90 people to Canons Park this morning for our Festive Christmas Run. Of the 90 people who ran, walked or jogged the course, 19 were first timers, so a big welcome to parkrun and to Canons Park.We also recorded 9 Personal bests today. Maybe that was down to the tinsel and baubles in the spinney, maybe it was pre-emptively burning off those Xmas calories. Whatever it was, well done. I Big congratulations also to Alex Brampton on becoming our new course record holder with a time of 16:26.
