Canons Park parkrun Number 82

21st April 2018

This week our attendance was the highest of 2018 so far: 161 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were running their first ever parkrun. Welcome to you all, and we hope you will join us again very soon! We also had a few tourists, including Joshua and Zoey who were visiting from Leeds for Joshua to run the London marathon on Sunday – hope it went well for you!

We also had our course record broken this week! Alex Bampton, from the Oxford University XC club, improved on his previous time, by lowering the course record to 16:16. Great job Alex, and we look forward to having you back soon to break 16 minutes!

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers this week, especially Hayden and Omari who were volunteering for the first time :-)

Chris PARKINSON-BEST • Meryl WALKER • Lily WALKER • Sakina SIDIK • Barry NOLAN • Christopher SHEARWOOD • Gillian SHEARWOOD • Lana MISAN • Cara MISAN • Alisha SIDIK • Hayden PRONTO-HUSSEY • Omari PHILLIPS-GORDON • Zawer LAD

Canons Park parkrun Number 81

Could this be true? Is winter finally behind us?

We enjoyed the first morning of sunshine for some time this week and this appears to have done wonders for parkrunners' enthusiasm working their way around our course. This week an amazing 24 personal bests. Well done to each and every one of you. A big welcome goes to the 14 participating in their very first parkrun today. We hope you enjoyed your experience and decide to join us again next week. And of course welcome to the 10 parkrunners visiting from elsewhere from as near as Gunnersbury and to as far away as South Africa. We hope you enjoyed your time in our beautiful part of the world!

Today's first finishers were:

  • Ashley Hope (men)
  • Sasha Birkin (women)
  • Oliver Epstein (junior boys)
  • Dalya Taleb (junior girls).

We also had a special junior 10 milestone being celebrated today. Perhaps she didn't realise. Congratulations again to Dalya Taleb for running her 10th parkrun. For this she has earned her white 10 Milestone t-shirt. These are only available to juniors under 18 years of age. Adults however earn their red 50 Milestone, black 100 Milestone, Green 250 Milestone and blue 500 Milestone. There is also a purple 25 Milestone for volunteers. Keep an eye out for these t-shirts being worn as the weather warms up!

Speaking of volunteers, please join me in thanking this week's team of volunteers, without whom our event just won't take place.

Canons Park parkrun Number 80

This week was a little warmer and drier than it has been in the previous weeks, and we saw an amazing 122 people run, jog and walk their way around our course. 13 people visited Canons Park for the first time with 5 completing their very first parkrun! We hope you all enjoyed it and will be visiting us again soon. We were also happy to host tourists from Wanstead, Oak Hill and Huddersfield - thank you for the lovely feedback we received on our course!

A huge 26 of you achieved a PB at Canons Park this Saturday - that's an amazing achievement and you should all be very proud! We also wanted to say well done to Esmat Sidik, who completed her 50th run, and Taylor Bridges, who ran her 10th parkrun as a junior.

Jonathan Thomson was our first finisher today, crossing the line in 19:02. Ian Bridges (19:34) and Stephen Warburton (20:55) were our second and third male finishers, each bagging a PB in the process!
Yat Wing Smart was our first female finisher (22:54) with Sharon Donovan (23:38) and Zahra Bassiri (24:46) following her.
George Nolan got a new PB of 23:32 to be our first junior male finisher and Maryam Janmohamed was our first junior female finisher in 29:49. Well done to all of you guys!

A big thank you needs to be given to all of our volunteers and pacers this week.

Feel free to check out our future roster and then tell us (via email or facebook) how you would like to help out. You can see what roles are available at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/canonspark/futureroster/

Volunteering at parkrun is fun and a brilliant way of ensuring the events continue; to find out more, please click here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/canonspark/volunteer/

Briefing and support is given for all the roles. Some roles are suitable to do with a pal (timekeeping – you are both at the finish line, recording times on the stopwatches), some are great for you to try with your children (barcode scanning, children seem to like making the scanning devices bleep!), there are even some that you can do without missing your run (course set-up and close-down, new runners’ briefing, tail walker, pacer, run report writer) there really is something for everyone.
We hope you will find out what fun it can be and the appreciation you get from runners! Don’t forget too that every time you volunteer you are another step closer to qualifying for the coveted purple milestone t-shirt that is earned after 25 times of volunteering!
