THE GREAT CAISTOR CAKEOVER TAKEOVER *** UNIQUE DOUBLE MILESTONE *** 100th MILESTONE

Caistor Running Club - running for fun and cake!

.

There were tutus, lots of leaping and cake for everyone this morning as Caistor Running Club took over Cleethorpes parkrun for the second time.  I wondered if it would be possible for them to top their first takeover but with an appearance from Captain Lincolnshire and an array of delicious cakes on offer I think they managed it!  The usually shy and retiring Frankie Thomas (ahem!) managed to put his nerves aside as his alter ego, Captain Lincolnshire, delivered a dog themed rock speech in celebration of Steve Green's milestones today (more about that later)!

Caistor Running Club were also celebrating the 30th birthday of member Laura Sutherland, so even more excuse to have cake!  Caistor Running Club members have always been loyal supporters of Cleethorpes parkrun, regularly volunteering and running.  The popularity of this friendly club is growing all the time, no doubt due to the fun they seem to have when running and the cake they eat when they've finished!    Well done to you all and thank you for supporting Cleethorpes parkrun!

 

If you would like to volunteer please contact us at cleethorpeshelpers@parkrun.com.  All the roles are easy to learn and you will be shown what to do by a Volunteer Co-ordinator.  Remember that parkrun relies on volunteers and there would be no event without them.  Thanks to Fran ALLISON, Chris ALLISON, Tracey ANDREWS, Barbara BELL, Andy BELL, John BIRCH, Georgia CHAPMAN-WELLS, Derek COMMANDER, Jill COMMANDER, Fiona CRAIG, Paul DAVIDSON, Joshua ECCLESTONE, Chris ECCLESTONE, Rachael EDWARDS, Sarah EDWARDS, Steven GREEN, Michelle JONES, Mike JONES, Mark KIDD, David MANNION, Tracie MCGUIRE, Cheryl MOOR, Holly PARTRIDGE, Chris RAMSAY, Andrew REYNOLDS, Helen SHILLINGS, Luke SHILLINGS, Laura SUTHERLAND, Frank THOMAS, Lydia WALTON, Mike WELLS, Sarah WELLS.

50/50

 

Steve Green was at the helm as Run Director today with support from John Birch.  Steve needed John's help as he achieved a unique double milestone this morning.  It's taken him over 6 years due to the amount of volunteering he has done but today Steve finally ran his 50th parkrun.  This coincides with his 50th stint as Run Director!  Steve was part of the group who brought parkrun to Cleethorpes and when he isn't acting as Run Director, he is regularly volunteering and has helped out on well over 100 occasions.  So a big thank you Steve for everything you do for Cleethorpes parkrun!

Unique double milestone for Steve Green

.

An extra big thank you must also go to John Birch who went above and beyond his role as Run Director today by clearing the course.  Sadly the Country Park was subject to vandalism overnight with damage caused to a gate, bins tipped over and rubbish everywhere.  John came across this on his pre-parkrun course check and cleared it all away so that the event could still take place.  Thank you John!

.

PB Corner

 

36 people managed to clock a PB at the Country Park today.  It was a family affair for Pete and Hayden Blow as this father and son duo both ran PBs.  Hayden also coincided his PB with his 10th milestone run!  A few Caistor runners were spurred on by their takeover and also achieved PBs.

Kerry Harrison ran a PB on his 59th parkrun today.  This was Kerry's 56th different parkrun!  He hasn't run a parkrun more than twice so I'm not sure which is his home one!  That is some serious parkrun tourism!

New to the park!

 

There were 30 first timers at the Country Park this morning!  For some of these it was their first ever parkrun but a lot have run a number of parkruns before.  I wonder if some of these visitors are over for the ABP Humber Coastal half marathon taking place in Cleethorpes tomorrow.  I know there are a lot of regular Cleethorpes parkrunners taking part in the race so good luck to you all.  I'll give you a cheer if I see you and look out for regular run reporter Colin Wright who will be on the course at 2.5 and 10.5 miles with his camera.

parkrun on Tour

Sarah Mcfazdean back at the Country Park

.

We had tourists from all over the country today!  Again, maybe they are here for the half marathon but I like to think they've visited just to do Cleethorpes parkrun!  Old friend of Cleethorpes parkrun, Sarah Mcfazdean is visiting from Campbeltown in Scotland.  Sarah lived in Cleethorpes a few years ago and was a regular at parkrun.  She's gone back to Scotland but tries to visit every year and fit a race in.  We also had visitors from Nottingham, Grantham, Newark, Leeds, Hull, Lincoln, Hertfordshire, Sheffield, Rochdale and Bath!

Netty Stevens was visiting Cleethorpes from Newark and ran with her guide Paul Davidson.  Netty is here to run the half marathon tomorrow and said what a good course Cleethorpes parkrun is for people who are visually impaired.  Word must be getting around as I also noticed Mike Wells guiding Iris Peel today.

 

.

100th parkrun!

 

Congratulations to Paul Marchant on his 100th parkrun!  Paul has run 98 of his parkruns at Cleethorpes and 2 at Peterborough.  He runs in the VM50 - 54 age category and has a PB of 22:17 which he achieved in May of this year.  Paul has volunteered at parkrun on 7 occasions.  Well done Paul!

Well, there was certainly was an autumnal feel to the Country Park this morning ; despite the temperature gauge slowly moving into double figures. Before we go any further, can I just point out that the photo (above) was not taken this morning: if it was it certainly wouldn't have been as bright as the one shown! Rita Linford, our intrepid Tail-Walker, made sure the attendance figure went over the 200 mark (201) and amazingly with 66 runners less, this morning, than last week's record entry, we had six more personal bests (47).

.

Sammy and Stacey Needham both ran their 100th parkrun this morning and were given a rousing “rock speech” by the king of the puns, Matt Storey, whose recital on the theme of fruit and root vegetable managed to give an alternative meaning to “two peas in a pod,” “top banana,” “pear,” and my favourite,” “mushroom,” (not much room!) OK it's not rocket science, but how the hell does he remember them all without notes?

Thanks to the volunteers

We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen:Robert ATKINSON, Barbara BELL, Michael BENTON, Sean CLARK, Cynthia COMMONS, Ann CRISP, Penny DIXON, Joshua ECCLESTONE, Paul EMENY, Daniel GELDER, Steven GREEN, Kristin HOSET, Jessica JEX, Rita LINFORD, Martin LONGSHAW, Jeni LOWE, Jason NEILSON, Shane NORTH, Mattie PORTLOCK, Melanie PORTLOCK, Frank RIMMER, Jon SACHRO, Edward TREACHER, William TREACHER, Sarah WATSON, Colin WRIGHT

Why not get involved and volunteer?

Thumbs up from Diane Pegg, as Tracie McGuire, rings the PB bell. Tracie, Caistor RC, and judging by the photo, Grimsby Tri Club, was running her 11th Cleethorpes parkrun. Tracie is one of the originals having run the first ever Country Park run back in May 2014; though I note she didn't run her next Cleethorpes parkrun until three years later in parkrun number 149: I'm blaming the poor bus service from Caistor to Cleethorpes. Oh, Tracie's inaugural parkrun was timed at 28.21, today she ran 27.41, so 40 second PB, well done Tracie.

Members of Cleethorpes Athletic Club (above) in mid-training for the ABP Humber Coastal Half-Marathon, take a break for a photo op, after completing the 5K and with another 12 miles to go to make up the 20 mile training run! Congratulations to Jo Barnsley, fourth from the left, on her 40th birthday next Wednesday. She will be celebrating at Millfields tonight at 8pm, but please keep that quiet as she doesn't want any gatecrashers! Marshals are still needed for the Half-Marathon and if anyone fancies this prestigious job please email Lydia Gibbs at - lydia@tape2tape.co.uk

In glorious Cleethorpes sunshine, but without the oppressive heat of late, 198 enthusiastic and eager parkrunners strode round the course, in the 217th edition of the Cleethorpes parkrun and, despite the keen wind an amazing 42 went home with a personal best.

.

Today saw a new and welcome addition to our rota of Run Directors with Sean Clark making his Country Park debut in this role. Sean is our "Star of the Day"; so read more about Sean later in this article.

.

 Amazingly, we had three new age-category records broken this morning: Super Vet, David Baird, set new figures in the VM75.79 with a sensational 24.07, the second fastest time in this category today in the UK, with running sensation, ten year-old George Wilson, going just that one better with his 18.28 being the fastest time in the UK today by over a minute and just to achieve the hat-trick of age-category records at the Country Park, we had Sara Eames beating her own VW40 record with a 19.21 clocking.

George Wilson and Sara Eames (above) both set new category records today. George set new figures in the JM10 age-category record by recording 18.28 which surpassed fellow Cleethorpes AC's Charlie Burrell's 18.58. This was a 36 second improvement on George's previous PB when he recorded 19.04 in mid-June. As we all know, Charlie Burrell is no slouch, so this is quite an incredible run.

.

George is running so fast now that he has left his Uncle Andy floundering; and Mike McDougall has had to step forward to accompany him as George is still in an age-category where he has to be accompanied by an adult. I suspect if George goes any faster his grandad, George Ely, might just have to come out of retirement to officially run alongside!

.

Sheffield's Sara Eames, a great supporter of Cleethorpes parkrun, had a cracking run in the sun, to surpass her own W40 age-category record by 12 seconds to cross the line in 19.21. This time moves her from 11th to 7th on the Cleethorpes Women all-time list and needless to say this is a Country Park PB for her. Sarah is training for the Chesterfield Half-Marathon in October and I'm sure everyone at Cleethorpes parkrun wish her all the best for this race.

.

Can I just point out that in the photograph (above) George is stood on the infamous Cleethorpes glacial erratic boulder, and he is not, despite appearances to the contrary, seven feet ten inches tall, but the normal size for a ten year-old!

Look after each other, and other people

We're rightly proud of the welcoming, family atmosphere that we enjoy at Cleethorpes and that we extend to people who travel long distances to share our wonderful event with us.

As the event has grown- and has now more than trebled in size from when we first started four years ago- we must remember, now more than ever, to think about everyone we meet on a parkrunday, be they parkrunners of all ages and abilities or other park users.

Please remember that the paths can be narrow in places, crowded on occasion, and that there can be children and buggies enjoying walking, jogging or running around our course; cyclists and dog walkers enjoying their park; or other park users enjoying a Saturday morning out.

Everyone is entitled to enjoy the same level of joy being out in our park and for that reason we ask all members of the Cleethorpes parkrun family to run with the utmost consideration for everyone they meet.

While we all enjoy trying to beat our best time, week in, week out, we sometimes need to step back and think about others who are also on the course, with the same aim as us, as we sprint by.

* Faster runners, please give plenty of room to those people we pass, move well over to the right around the lake to pass others, take care on the out-and-back and only pass when it is safe to do so. There should be no need, and no excuses, for other runners to feel uneasy while running, and absolutely no excuses for "touching" other runners on the way past.

* Other runners, and that's the vast majority of us, we need to make sure that we are always aware of who is around us, keep well over to the left of the path around the lake (and to the right on the out and back) and be aware that on some narrow sections of the course, particularly the finishing straight, "tunnel vision" can set in with those people who are straining to beat their own best times. Keep well left and let them pass.

* Can we also remind everyone that children under 11 taking part on foot should be comfortably within reach of a trusted adult known to them at all times who is able to help them run in a safe position on the paths, runners with buggies (like our very own Event Director) need to be doubly aware of their position to pass and allow passing safely, and that, according to parkrun global rules, bicycles and scooters are not allowed to take part in parkrun.

Together, with a bit of consideration for others, we can continue welcoming new members to our family and ensure everyone enjoys running at Cleethorpes for years to come.

Take care of yourselves, and each other.
