Happy New Year!

What a fantastic record-breaking start to the year - where is Norris McWhirter when you need him?

20190101 - ParkRun - 0004I have always wondered  but now I know- this is what what 448 people waiting to do parkrun looks like! We welcomed the in the New Year with a brand spanking new Attendance record. We were delighted when we found out that we had broken the record on Christmas day, we never expected quite so many people to turn up for New Years Day. Fortunately no one noticed the panic behind the scenes where we only had 400 tokens to hand out to 448 runners. We had to recycle the early numbers to make sure everyone got a position....I think we got away with it!

Thanks to 'StatsGeek' we can see that in order to get their double 212 people ran at another parkrun first, so before descending on Chippenham there were; 155 from Melsham, 50 from Chipping Sodbury, 1 from Bath and 6 from Southwick.

We welcomed 20 first timers to parkrun and a staggering 104 visitors from other parkruns (Worcester, Dursley, Taunton, Bath, Maesteg, Conkers, Pomphrey Hill, Didcot, Swindon, Orpington, Winchester, Mile End, Chipping Sodbury, Melksham, Keynsham, Porthcawl, PontyPridd, Salisbury, Brentwood, Abingdon, Nottingham, Fulham and non-parkrun visitors from Adelaide, Calgary and China. Even though there were so many people 53 runners managed to get a PB.

We had a spectacular amount of milestones achieved (some of them kept it quiet!);

Achieving their 50th parkrun milestone were;

Rohaise De Voeux (Chippenham Harriers) - Rohaise has been running here since April 2014 and has completed 45 of the 50 here at Chippenham. She has also volunteered here on 49 separate occasions. She was also one of the founding core team members of jnr parkrun and has clocked up another 47 volunteering credits at Chippenham juniors.

Merry Christmas!

Wow! Where do I start with this record smashing Christmas event? I knew we would have a busy parkrun today but I was not prepared for our attendance record to be smashed. Not only was it our largest turnout in five Xmas Day runs by 77 runners, but also our all time largest turnout by 35 runners. I am fairly confident that this is also the most first time runners we've ever had too. There were a number of runners entering into the Christmas spirit, we had Santas, elves, reindeers, Grinchs and a gingerbread man! The Campbell boys and their friends once again came up trumps with their costumes below;   44656427430_51210f6c4f_o

An attendance record smashing 354 people ran, jogged and walked the course today. We welcomed 25 first timers to parkrun and we also welcomed a staggering 60 tourists to Chippenham from the following parkruns; Isle of Sky, Swindon, Milton Keynes, Lincoln, Manchester, Melksham, Burnham on Crouch, Reading, Southampton, Poole, Highbury Fields, Cleethorpes, Nottingham, Abingdon, Maidenhead, Norwich and Widley.

The conditions were just right for 32 runners to record new Personal Bests.
