As ever parkrunner knows it isn't just about running but also about being part of the parkrun community and giving a bit back to the community; and in this instance we have four parkrunners who have done just that and, between them, volunteered on no less than 75 occasions! So well-done guys we could not have done it without you.

Phew! Liz cools her feet down after completing her 50th parkrun in January 2016.

.

Liz, has run parkrun 100 times and is the Cleethorpes Country Park * STAR OF THE DAY *

 

Her personal best for Cleethorpes parkrun 5K is 29.28 recorded in May 2016.

 

Liz, runs in the VW50 age category and her best Age-Grade was recorded in May 2016 when she achieved 56.22%.

 

Liz's first ever parkrun was Cleethorpes number three, back in June 2014, when she ran 37.28 for the distance. Since then she has amassed a massive 16 personal bests; and as stated above her PB is now 29.28.

 

Liz has run Cleethorpes parkrun 97 times and three other local parkruns: Hull, Scunthorpe and Humber Bridge.

Liz, in one of her numerous parkrun roles, scans Mike McDougall's barcode.

Not only has Liz run parkrun 100 times she is also, along with her friend, Lisa Chambers, an official “Super Volunteer” having volunteered in numerous roles – Bar Code Scanner, Funnel Manager, Finish Token Support, etc. - on no more than 34 occasions! Without a shadow of a doubt this, on a run to volunteer ratio, is one of the best at the Cleethorpes Country Park.

So well-done Liz you are our *STAR OF THE DAY *

 Running in the rain!

A damp country park greeted parkrunners this morning!

.

It was great weather for ducks this morning but the rain did not stop 110 hardy souls from getting their weekly parkrun fix at Cleethorpes Country Park.  The weather and a number of other running events taking place this weekend, saw the lowest turnout so far this year at Cleethorpes parkrun.  The inaugural Normanby Hall parkrun also took place today which some Cleethorpes regulars visited.  Regular run reporter, Colin Wright, was also absent and didn't get the best weather for his Saturday off!  He'll be back next week.

Sir Steve Green on his 40th Run Director stint!

.

Today saw Steve Green undertake his 40th stint as Run Director!  Steve is a member of the core team at Cleethorpes parkrun and frequently volunteers with his wife Susan.  Their contribution to parkrun is amazing and ensures we can all enjoy a run every week, so thank you Steve and Susan!

.

On the subject of helping out, Steve had to have a moan about the lack of volunteers for this week.  Members of the core team have had to give up their own runs or come to help out when they had other plans.  Thankfully enough volunteers were found for the run to go ahead but if people hadn't have come forward there would have been no run.  If you have run parkrun a number of times, please volunteer once in a while.  If everyone volunteered once in every 15 runs, we will be able to ensure parkrun continues at Cleethorpes.  Email cleethorpeshelpers@parkrun.com to let the team know when you can help out.  All the roles are easy to pick up and training is given.

Kevin Green led the men home this morning in 18:05.  On form Kevin, ran Brigg 10k last weekend in a time of 37:25, coming 3rd!  Today was Kev's 4th first finish at Cleethorpes parkrun.

Second for the men was Ashley Colley in 18:14.  This was Ashley's first visit to Cleethorpes parkrun from Leeds.  Ashely usually runs Brighouse parkrun and has a pb of 17.27 which he ran in 2013.

Third across the line forgot to bring his barcode today!  #dfyb.

Regular runner and volunteer, Annelis Knight, was third lady after an exciting sprint to the finish.  In her 114th parkrun today, Annelis clocked 24:26.  Annelis has volunteered on 24 occasions and has a PB of 23:28.

PB Corner

 

Although it was raining there wasn't much wind today so there were a fair few PBs recorded.  19 people managed to run their fastest ever time at Cleethorpes parkrun today.  Well done to you all!

They came from the north side of the Country park, they came from the south side; Vampires, Frankensteins, Zombies, Walking Skeletons … and that was just the dog walkers!

.

Yes, it was the 4th Annual Halloween Cleethorpes Monster Dash incorporating the 177th Cleethorpes parkrun and what a monster dash it was; with over 200 finishers, a record breaking number of volunteers, and the 25,000 ... yes, that's right, our twenty five thousand Cleethorpes parkrun finisher! Plus … yes there is MORE – two age-category records broken – WHEW!

DSCN5020

.

Mike has run parkrun 96 times, 95 of them at Cleethorpes, and is the Cleethorpes Country Park * STAR OF THE DAY*

.

He first ran parkrun in June 2014, in only the fourth running of the Cleethorpes parkrun, and on that day he ran 28.51 for the distance. His best ever time for parkrun is 25.54, recorded in October 2016. Mike has eight personal bests to his credit.

.

Mike's best age-grade of 60.36% was recorded when he ran his current personal best in October 2016. His highest overall gender finishing position was 31st in Cleethorpes parkrun number 21.

.

He has also run at Dublin parkrun in the grounds of Malahide Castle where he clocked a 27.44, 5K. Mike runs in the VM55 age-category. Mike ran in the recent Cleethorpes half-marathon and finished in 2.12.18. He also ran the 2017 Grimsby 10k and ran 55.45.

.

Mike has volunteered his services at parkrun on 14 occasions: so well-done Mike, you are our *STAR OF THE DAY *

Leading home all 201 parkrunners this week we have Caistor based, Lincoln Wellington Runner, Ryan Page, who ran a fast 16.06, which in less windy conditions would have surely been a sub 16 minute performance.

.

Ryan was telling me that at the, Cleethorpes New Year Day 10K 2018, we could possibly see seven members of his club go sub 30 minutes for the distance. Let us hope that this is the case. The last time anyone went sub 30 on New Year's Day was 24 years ago when Skyrac's, Peter Whitehead, ran the current course record of 29.24; and the record number of sub 30 minute performances was in the same year, when three managed that feat.

.

.

In second place today, and also running on New Year Day 2018, we have former NYD 10K winner, Gregan Clarkson, on his annual trip to the resort. Gregan shot round the course in 16.30 which just happens to be a new course record for the VM 35-39 category, so congratulations Gregan and see you on New Year's Day!

.

In third place and all the way from Derbyshire we have Paul Whittleton, who has run Cleethorpes four times and has managed to improve his time on each occasion.

.

Leading home all 94 parkrun ladies this week we have, Ruth Hayden-Cox, from Newent Runners in Gloucestershire, who, on her debut, hit the number one spot and actually ran her all-time personal best; amazingly faster than every one of her 104 runs in the Forest of Dean parkrun! Perhaps Cleethorpes is flat and the Forest of Dean isn't!

.

DSCN5180

Our first five ladies with Ruth (1st) third from left, with new age-category record holder, Kathy Palmer, second from left.

.

Louth Ac's Kerry Drewery was second with Rebecca Hodgson running 22.30, three seconds down on Kerry, for third.

.

Since I mentioned the male runners on New Year's Day perhaps I should mention the ladies; and I've noticed that Sophie Cowper, Rotherham Harriers, the England 5K Road Champion ( 16.27) has entered; and she could be only the third female runner to run 34 minutes, on NYD, this century since Gemma Steel (Charnwood AC) in 2009 (34.50) and former Cleethorpes AC's English Internationalist, Lisa Mawer (Bingley Harriers) in 2006 (34.51)

.

And just keeping to the Cleethorpes AC organised New Years Day 10K theme, we has former NYD winner, Kathy Palmer who finished in a parkrun PB of 22.32 in fourth. Kathy won NYD 1989 in a then course record of 35.11 – in fact Kathy also won the 1986 event with brother, Neil, running for Coventry Godiva , winning the male event, a feat that has yet to be repeated.

.

Not only has Kathy the top age grade of the day 81.43% but she also set a new age-category record in the VW55-59 with her 22.32 clocking.

CLEETHORPES PARKRUN 176

.


NO ONE FINISHES LAST AT parkrun.


.

* Halloween parkrun next week * 188 finishers in the 176th Cleethorpes parkrun * Neve Nearney runs her big 150 * Brynnen Massey clocks his 50th, as does Ben Goodwin; whilst Sarah Edwards also runs her 50th as she leads home all 84 parkrun ladies * Kevin Green first * 19 first timers * Kathy Palmer top age grader of the day ... again! *


.

.

Calling all our crazy parkrunners, it's our annual Halloween run in the park next Saturday, which is really spooky as next Saturday just happened to be Halloween – what a scary coincidence!

So get your Halloween fancy dress costumes out of the attic, dust them off (actually probably best to leave the dust on) and get yourself down to the Cleethorpes Country Park.

Could all runners in fancy dress, please assemble in front of the Pigeon House by 8.45 for a group photo. There will also be a competition for the best costume in the following categories – Male, Female, Boy and Girl. Our resident costume expert, Jason Neilson, has kindly agreed to judge the contest.

Sarah after today's parkrun with son, Ben. Ben was first JM 11-14 - well done Ben. I'm now seeing how many times I can say the word Ben in this caption ... well, that's four times!

.

Sarah, our intrepid, Run Reporter, has run Cleethorpes parkrun 50 times and is the Cleethorpes Country Park * STAR OF THE DAY *

.

Her personal best for Cleethorpes parkrun 5K is 20.44 recorded in February 2015 when Sarah was second lady. Sarah has finished first lady on nine occasions: including today!

.

Sarah, runs in the VW40 age category and her best Age-Grade was recorded in February 2015 when she achieved 73.71%. The following month Sarah ran in the Gainsborough 10K and ran a PB of 41.50 and was 4th in her age-group. Recently she ran the Cleethorpes Half-Marathon was part of the Cleethorpes Athletic Club winning team.

.

Sarah is one of the originals having run the first ever Cleethorpes parkrun back in May 2014. In fact, she was known as the “PB Queen” in the early days after running her first nine parkruns in a personal best time. So far, Sarah has chalked up 12 PB's.

.

Sarah and her family: husband Craig, and her children, Ben and Jacob are staunch supporters of parkrun and are regularly seen running or marshalling the event. Sarah has volunteered on no less than 48 times, 12 times as Run Reporter. So well-done Sarah you are our *STAR OF THE DAY *
