The Running Commentary #305 – 8th September 2018

A dull morning but thankfully no rain for our 305th run around the lakes which was enjoyed by 195 runners and walkers this morning.

Thanks to a last minute rally on Facebook and some additional helpers this morning we had enough volunteers, please try to help out once every few months to ensure we always have a good supply of volunteers, you can sign up on our white board at the end of your run or drop us a message on Facebook thanks. Here is a selection of this morning's high vis heroes:

Next week we will be having another celebration, one of our parkrunners, Martin McCauley is getting married that afternoon but he will spend the morning doing the parkrun first, so please come along and wish him good luck as he says goodbye to his single life.

Hopefully everyone is embracing our environmentally friendly stance on having no more plastic throw away cups, so all our cups are reusable, please make sure you return them to the box at the end of the run to be washed for the following week. Don't bin them or take them home. And if anyone would like to help out with the washing please let us know.

If you know any wannabe runners out there, lots of couch to 5Ks are starting this coming week. Options of Craigavon, Portadown, Banbridge and Armagh are available. Please see full details at: https://getactiveabc.com/hw_programs/couch-to-5k/

 

Good luck to all our parkrunners who are off to do the Great North Run tomorrow, a fantastic run, if you ever get the chance I'd encourage you to do it, definitely my favourite half marathon.

 

Finally both JD and I are AWOL next week as we head off to the Berlin marathon, so we need a report writer. If anyone would like to give it a go please see Brendan or Ron next Saturday.

 

Hopefully see some of you over at Lurgan junior parkrun in the morning.

The Running Commentary #304 – 1st September 2018

The Starting Line 

Miserable and drizzly was the morning that greeted me as I awoke this morning. Dry and warm was the morning that greeted me as I arrived at the farm – it never rains on parkrun! 

This morning we had a Run Chatters takeover, with the girls taking on the majority of the volunteer roles and doing a fantastic job! 

Also this morning was the first Saturday of the month so our pacers were on hand to help runners to PBs galore. 

40484281_238224743714318_7015892003581853696_n

The Volunteers 

 

The Run Chatters (plus a few of our regular helpers) allowed for the event to once again go off with aplomb – thanks girls et al. If you are a member of a running group/club (or indeed any group, team or club) and could spare a Saturday morning it would be great to have you help out. We also accept helpful individuals! Leave your name on the whiteboard or get in touch via Facebook.

Finishing Line 

Back to the gazebo to celebrate the birthday of one of our stalwart volunteers, Caroline. Cake was richly deserved for our most familiar and happiest scanner.

We’ve been talking about how to reduce the number of plastic cups we throw away on a weekly basis, so this morning we introduced reusable cups for water. If you are using these cups please return them to the box beside the water bottles. I was incredibly disappointed that as I returned to my car to find one of these cups discarded on the grass. This is not acceptable for two reasons:Littering is a disgusting habit and I really shouldn’t have to tell anyone to keep the park and farms tidy, if I see anyone dropping litter I will challenge them, and I would hope that others would do likewise. Secondly, money has been spent on these reusable cups, the sign to place them in the box for reuse is clear, the requirement to place them in the box was mentioned in the pre-run brief – these cups are to be REUSED!!! 

40507993_1668083403313468_8552306387814711296_n

On that wee rant, I’ll see you next week. 

 

Happy running,

The Running Commentary #303 – 18th August 2018

A lovely dry mild morning (I'm guessing here but judging by the photos I must be right) for our 214 runners and walkers this morning.

39468146_265222047428646_3071119676424585216_n

 

Sorry I missed the run but I was off tackling the slightly longer Dambusters half marathon this morning. A run I can only describe as brutal - long dragging hills, very tough headwinds and what seemed like a never ending climb through the trails at the end, I think they only time I smiled was when I heard a man behind me say at about 9.5 miles there was just over a parkrun to go. That was like music to my ears.

 

We had a good squad of volunteers this morning, thanks to the following superstars:

I don't know if our runners and walkers were aware but our tail walker today was Susie Tawney who was at the World masters athletics in S.Korea last year and won in the W55 3000 metres race. So you can all go to bed happy in the knowledge that you have beaten a world champ.

Thanks so much to Susie who was over on her holidays but had an injury and kindly emailed us offering to volunteer:   39467295_2672138016343675_6943512609119272960_n

While Nick tops the age grades this week.

 

IMPORTANT NEWS next week's parkrun is cancelled, this is due to the bird fair on at Tannaghmore Gardens, please spread the word. Why not use this opportunity for a bit of parkrun tourism instead and try Lisburn, Armagh or the newly started Dungannon.

 

Hopefully see some of you over at Lurgan junior parkrun in the morning and the rest of you in a fortnight at the lakes.

On this day six years ago City Park welcomed its first parkrunners. That first group of 65 has grown steadily and this morning 217 runners, joggers and walkers lapped the Lakes for the 302nd time. 

 

We started off by presenting our wonderful event director with a wee present. Thanks to Brendan for his dedication across almost all of the last six years.

Finally, Gillian and I will be away next week so if you fancy having a go at writing the run report, please get in touch. 

Happy running,

The Running Commentary #301 – 4th August 2018

The Starting Line 

City Park parkrun number 301 saw 261 runners, joggers and walkers turn up to an overcast but warm Tannaghmore Farm - it never rains on our parkrun! 

As this was the first Saturday of August we had pacers (though sadly not the sweets for people of my vintage) covering a wide range of target times from 19 minutes to 35 minutes. 

The Volunteers 

Thanks as always to our brilliant volunteers who help make the event happen. As Brendan mentioned in the pre-run briefing, if every runner helps out just a few times a year parkrun will continue to run smoothly. 

These are the guys and gals that made the run today possible...

The Podiums 

Male 

1  Brian YOUNG  17:58 
2  Niall RANKIN  18:15 
3  James WILSON  18:56 

One of our first timers finished first (how did he know the way?) followed by two PB performances. 

Female 

1  Natalie BOWBANKS  20:37 
2  Jillian REDPATH  20:43 
3  Eileen JACK  21:26 

A PB for Natalie and Jillian while occasional visitor Eileen was just short of her best too. 

The Finishing Line

Back to the gazebo for some fruit and veg (thanks to whoever brought those along, the tomatoes were very tasty). 

Next Saturday is our sixth birthday and the Friends of City Park are arranging a special event to mark it and the anniversary of the passing of Jonny Peden, so check out their Facebook page. 

See you all bright and early next week. 

Happy running, 

Jonny D
