20181006 - ParkRun - 0004

Today was International parkrun Day and parkrun celebrated its 14th birthday and its 5 millionth registered parkrunner this week.

It was cold, it was wet and it was a miserable start to the day, it wasn’t too bad as we were setting up, then it started to spit, then drizzle. I delivered my quickest pre run brief ever to the 152 brave souls who vacated their warm comfortable beds early to have the pleasure of running, jogging and walking round the park. Then came the rain – the relentless rain and there was no escaping it. 19 soggy wet runners achieved PBs to ensure they could get home to the warm and dry as soon as possible. We welcomed 5 first timers to parkrun and 13 visitors from other parkruns.

First up this week I must thank the wonderful volunteers who braved the conditions and got soaked through for the privilege of doing so. A special mention must be given to John Belcher for taking this weeks photos in the rain. The others that we are grateful to are;

Chris HUNT • Ollie CAMPBELL • Neil ADDISON • Andrew NICHOLSON • Gary IBBOTSON • Jeff KIRK • Elizabeth BARNETT • Neil BENTLEY • Travis ARCHER • Selby ARCHER • Julia MADDOCKS • Giles ARCHER • Debbie WILLIAMS • Valerie LIGHT • Ian MOORE • Julie BEAN • Nicola LOWTHER • Jules PEARSON • Julia MANNERING • Becky O'BRIEN • Jinnette SMITH • Zachary SMITH • Noah SMITH • Rita LINDSAY • Beren WALKER • Dougal CAMPBELL • John BELCHER • Nicola JOHNSON • Julia COOK • Catherine HARRIS • Ben HARRIS

New Years Day 2018

We will be holding our annual New Years Day parkrun in Monkton Park with a start time of 10:30. You can either have a lie-in or go to another parkrun (e.g Southwick) and get a 'double parkrun' under your belt (New Years Day is the only day you can record 2 parkruns on the same day) We look forward to seeing you then.

 

Christmas Day 2018

We will be holding our annual Christmas Day parkrun as usual at 09:00 on Tuesday 25th December 2018. What better way to kick off the festivities?  Feel free to dress up as Santa, an elf, a reindeer or the Grinch! We look forward to seeing you!
