Run Report – Event Number 115 19th January 2019

Clacton Seafront parkrun
Event number 115
19th January 2019

This week 165 people ran, jogged and walked the course on a very cold windy day, the course again was littered with stones and sand but you brave people tackled it with no issue. We welcomed 25 first timers and a whopping 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

We had a few milestone parkrunners this morning, congratulations to Bill Heaton who completed his 200th parkrun, Chris Clarke his 50th, and Annabel Moore on her 10th as a junior.

We had a few issues again with parkrunners going through the funnel twice. If you have already been through the funnel once PLEASE do not go through again, this can cause mayhem with the results. If you want to support your fellow parkrunners by running with them, we fully support and encourage this, it is lovely to see, but could I ask that you either run alongside them outside of the coned area or stop before the finish.

Mark and I look forward to seeing you all next week, fingers crossed it will be not as cold.

The event was made possible by 13 awesome volunteers:

Lorraine GRINDROD • Mark GRINDROD • Mel WILLSMORE • Nigel BUTCHER • Julia ROCKELL • Erica JOSCELYNE • Pete INMAN • Paul CRAWFORD • Matt PLUMMER • Gill CUSHWAY • Jasmine YANG • Daniel CASEY • Eric FARRANT

Event #114 – 12th January 2019

Many thanks for taking the time to read what is only my 2nd run report as Run Director here at Clacton Seafront. It was a nice fresh day on the seafront but the lower prom was quite heavily littered with stones. This is one of the hazards of being a seafront parkrun, but I was sure to refer to this in in my pre-run briefing and first timer briefings so hopefully everyone took as much care as possible.

Congratulations to regular volunteers Peter JAMES and Paul CRAWFORD who reached 25 and 50 milestones as volunteers respectively today, their hard work and giving up their Saturday mornings for our parkrun community is very much appreciated by all involved.

Our other Pete (Pete INMAN) hit an impressive milestone of 60 times as our Clacton Seafront parkrun photographer that means he has been with us on 52.6% of our parkruns as photographer as well as other weeks when he has volunteered in other roles meaning that a fantastic 59.6% of our parkruns have seen Pete appear as a volunteer, he is a pillar of our parkrun community and I for one am glad we have him.


Please do get in touch if you would like to volunteer, no volunteers = no parkrun it is a very simple equation so please do help out when you can.

The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:

Sandra JAMES • Jack WILDERS • Dominic JOSCELYNE • Erica JOSCELYNE • Amanda ROSE • Pete INMAN • Paul CRAWFORD • Maria BLANCHE • Gill CUSHWAY • Jasmine YANG • Peter JAMES • Heidi BAKER • Daniel CASEY • Eric FARRANT • Mitchell ROSE • Tilda HARRAGAN

This week 165 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

Today's first finisher was Clacton Seafront regular hero Sam PLUMMER who excels himself in the JM11-14 category he finished just outside his PB by 19 seconds in a time of 18:48.


Today's first female finisher was Vicky MOORE who completed her 15th parkrun with us in a time of 23:32 just 25 seconds outside of her PB.

Another notable PB was that of Graham HIPKIN who registered under 23 minutes for the first time setting his new PB at 22:56 - > Well done Graham!

Also a massive well done to Abigail QUILTER who set a new PB of 38:50 with lots of hard work as her previous PB has stood since February 2017 so well done to her.


Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Clacton Seafront parkrun Results Page.

Please note that parkrun operate a strict no barcode, no time, no exception policy. A post I wrote earlier may have implied differently this was not my intention. My intention was to make it clear that we were aware of some barcodes that had clearly not scanned properly once the results had been processed but that must not have been noticed at the time as we did not have the results noted on our "scanning error" sheet.

Please do remember your barcodes, and don't take ours, number 77 went missing today, so it is no surprise to see this as an unknown runner. I was quite clear around the barcode process in my first timers briefing and before the run, please hand in your barcodes even if you are not on the parkrun system not getting them back causes us trouble.

I hope you had a great parkrun, it was a great turnout today, long may that continue into 2019.

I will see you next week, but I'll have my running shoes on and be running the course with you.

Many Thanks

Jack - Run Director

Event Number 113 – 5th January 2019

This week's event had a lot to live up to what with the epic New Years Day event so no pressure for me at my first event as Run Director then.

I have had lots of positive feedback following my first event so many thanks for the support of the core team, volunteers and everyone involved in parkrun who has been very supportive. I would expect no less from the parkrun community as I know that we are so supportive of all participants of the event all who look to complete it in their own way, but I thought it worth a thank you.

We did unfortunately have some participants who came through the finish but did not take a token, the effect that this has is that we have times and places recorded on our timer that do not exist on our scanners meaning incorrect times. I have spent a fair while comparing people's own results with our results and after a lot of adjustments have got them to a place that is as accurate as possible, but do feel free to let me know if you think there is a glaring issue somewhere with your time.

Note that as this is an edited time submission the results may not have yet updated at the time of this course, but the system will process them imminently.

It is important that even if you are not yet registered with parkrun or you forget your personal barcode that you do take a finishing barcode and hand it to the scanners.

Please do not take the barcodes home. I would like to say a special thank you to Lorraine GRINDROD who had a warm down sprint after the event chasing someone who tried to leave with one of our barcodes and managed to get it back, we as that you please do not take the timing barcodes home.

It was a cold day on the seafront so well done to those 145 ladies, gents and children who ran, jogged or walked the course on a morning that was clear and pleasant but certainly had a cold bite about it.

21 of today's participants were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests and we had representatives from 14 different clubs taking part.

Today's first Male finisher was Aaron GRAVES in 18:19 a first timer at Clacton.

Today's first Female finisher was Vicky MOORE in 23:17.

The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:

Lorraine GRINDROD • Mark GRINDROD • Mel WILLSMORE • David YOUNG • Clare YOUNG • Amelia YOUNG • Phoebe YOUNG • Jack WILDERS • Dominic JOSCELYNE • Erica JOSCELYNE • Paul CRAWFORD • Gill CUSHWAY • Jasmine YANG • Kristine STACEY • Daniel CASEY • Sarah PEARCE

Many thanks for all those who gave up their time to help. It is a simple concept but no volunteers means no parkrun, so please do click the volunteer link above to get involved and keep our parkrun happening.

Thank you once again for making my first week as RD so enjoyable and do your best to get the run briefing tune out of your head, and we hope to see you next week.

Many Thanks

Jack
