Three week warning: just to remind you that it is our Halloween "Monster Dash" on Saturday 28th October 2017. Costume wearing is entirely optional; though knowing what a spooky lot you are, I'm sure we will get a bumper turn-out of scary people in scary costumes.

Congratulations to two of our regulars on reaching a parkrun milestone; Charles Anderson hit the 100 and Fiona Craig 50. As every parkrunner knows – well, nearly every parkrunner! - it is not just about running but also about volunteering and Charles and Fiona have volunteered a total of 22 times between the two of them: so well-done, Charles & Fiona.

*MIKE WELLS*

DSCN2286

Mike taking this morning's "first timers briefing"

.

Mike, has run parkrun 260 times and is the Cleethorpes Country Park * STAR OF THE DAY*

.

Mike, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind me saying this, is one of the characters that make parkrun special; after all how can someone running around in a tutu and giving the occasional “twirl” not be a character!

.

He is one of the “originals” having run the first ever Country Park parkrun back in May 2014: on that day he ran 19.27. Mike's fastest time at Cleethorpes is 18.32 recorded in May 2016.

.

His best time for the distance is 18.10 recorded at the Long Eaton parkrun. Mike is rather an avid parkrun tourist having run numerous 5K's up and down the country including events at: Colwick (176 runs) Conkers, Northampton, Huddersfield, Sheffield, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Pontefract, Walsall, Falkirk, Abingdon, Bushy Park, in fact I could go on, but my typewriter is running out of ribbon, but I make that 36 non-Cleethorpes parkruns!

.

Mike's best Cleethorpes age-grade of 74.19% was recorded when he ran his current personal best. His highest overall gender finishing position at the Country Park was 3rd recorded in May 2016.

.

He runs in the VM40 age-category and is a member of Caistor Running Club.

.

Mike has volunteered his services at parkrun on 26 occasions: so well-done Mike, you are our *STAR OF THE DAY *

Cleethorpes parkrun 173

 

PBs galore at pacer week!

 

DSC_0116

Run Director, Rob Atkinson briefing runners from the rock

.

Wow!  What a lot of PBs there were this week!  65 in total!  I am putting that down to the amazing pacers that were out on the course today helping people achieve their goal times.  The conditions at the Country Park were also favourable for the 229 runners, being cool with little wind.  Before looking closer at the results, let's not forget there would not have been a run this morning if it wasn't for the fabulous volunteers who gave up an hour of their time.  A big thank you to: Charles ANDERSON, Helen ATKINSON, Robert ATKINSON, Pam BENDLE, Michael BENTON, John BIRCH, Barry BRADLEY, Cynthia COMMONS, Sarah EDWARDS, Emma HAWKEY, Mark HERRON, Katy HEWIS, Emma HINKLEY, Steven HOLMES, Rita LINFORD, Paul MARCHANT, John POTTER, Archie RAINBOW, Ellie RAINBOW, Joanne RAMSAY, Andrew SHADLOCK, Edward TREACHER, Anne TREACHER, David WALTON, Sheila WARD, Sarah WATSON, Desmond WRIGHT.

Some of our lovely volunteers making sure others could have a run this morning

.

If you regularly run Cleethorpes parkrun and haven't volunteered yet please give it a go one week.  Some weeks are a struggle to find the volunteers needed to ensure the run can go ahead safely.  If we all do our bit every now and then we can ensure we will always have Cleethorpes parkrun.  Email cleethorpeshelpers@parkrun.com

PB Corner

 

Without looking through all the old results to be sure, I bet 65 PBs could well be a record here at Cleethorpes!  Regular run reporter, Colin Wright would probably know but he's having the day off today.  He'll be back with us next week.  Matthew Storey would also probably know!

Cleethorpes regular Bridget Benton achieved a new PB today of 30:46.  Bridget first ran Cleethorpes parkrun in June 2014 and has since knocked 4 minutes off her time.  Joanne Yates also got a PB today in her 63rd Cleethorpes parkrun.  Joanne came in at 24:04, proving that it is still possible to get PBs after running parkrun for a while.  Dominic Cartwright ran his first sub 21:00 today!  Dominic ran the first ever Cleethorpes parkrun back in May 2014 in 27:46 coming 93rd overall.  Today he was 8th!  There are too many PBs for me to mention you all but great running everyone!

Among the visitors to the park today were Team Awesome parkrun (TAp)!  This is a group of 3 enthusiastic parkrunners who are making it their mission to visit all the parkruns in the Yorkshire and Humber region as well as other parkruns around the UK and worldwide!  Sam, Tom and Michelle hail from Leeds and commented on what a beautiful park we have to run in.

Male placings

 

It was PBs for the first and second male finishers today.  Ben PLUMPTON (JM15-17) of Cleethorpes & District AC, was first over the line in 17:39.  Ben's second time in 21 appearances.  This is Ben's second sub 18 minute parkrun and his third PB in a row.  Kevin GREEN (VM35-39) (Unattached) was second over the line in 17:52.  Kevin has been first to finish on 2 previous occasions.  This was also Kevin's second sub 18 minute parkrun and his second PB in a row.  Sam EKLUND (JM15-17) (Unattached) was third over the line in 19:26.

 Female placings

 

Madeleine CARTWRIGHT (JW11-14) of Cleethorpes & District AC, was first female to scan her barcode (26th overall) over the line in 21:50.  This was Madeleine's 5th first finish in 48 appearances.  Kathryn PALMER (VW55-59) (Unattached) was second (38th overall) over the line in 22:34.  Kathy has set a new VM55-59 age category record with this time.  It was also a PB for Kathy and she has topped the age grade results with an amazing 81.31%!  Sammy NEEDHAM (SW25-29) (Unattached) was third (41st overall) over the line in 23:03.  Sammy and sister Stacey have recently trained up as run leaders and are involved in the new Fit Mums and Friend's group which launched in Grimsby this week.

Fast females! Madeline, Rachel (don't forget to scan!) and Kathy who has set a new VM55-59 record.

.

This week's female placings are a reminder of how important it is to scan your barcode after parkrun.  Regular parkrunner Rachel Portlock arrived with her barcode and ran a good time, especially considering she ran Hull marathon in 3:37:14 on Sunday.  However, after getting chatting following her run, she went home only to realise she hadn't scanned her barcode!  Ooops!

Milestones

 

No-one shouted out as having a milestone run when Rob asked runners during the briefing but I spotted on the results that Daniel Payling ran his 10th parkrun today.  As Daniel is in the JM11-14 he can now claim his 10 parkrun t-shirt.  Daniel also ran a PB of 28:38 today.  He first ran parkrun in June of this year and clocked 31:02 so has quickly reduced his time!  Well done Daniel!

Jeni Lowe and Nicola Carden had an extra special reason to be at parkrun this morning and it was to complete the running challenge they have taken on this month.  The pair have run 100km in September in the Mr Men and Little Miss Run raising money for Children with Cancer UK.  They have done a fantastic job taking on the Mr Strong challenge and have raised over £200 between them!  To add to this they both also clocked PBs today!  Well done Jeni and Nicola!

Jeni and Nicola aren't the only parkrunners taking on challenges recently.  A number of regular runners completed the Hull marathon, either fully or as part of a relay team and  Jamie Sullivan, John Armstrong and Rob Pritchard completed the Brigg Sprint Triathlon.  The Grimsby Tri Club members proudly showed off their finishers' t-shirts while parkrunning this morning.  Rob also achieved a PB today of over 2 minutes to run 26:50! Well done guys!

Grimsby Poachers Reunion

 

Frank Rimmer ran his 5th Cleethorpes parkrun today and achieved his 4th PB in a row by clocking 23:41.  Frank told me that despite parkrun being on his doorstep it was his friend in Peterborough who told him about it!  Frank was promoting the Grimsby Poachers Reunion to be held at the Beachcomber on 24 March 2018.  The Grimsby Poachers are past and present soldiers who have served in the 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment.  Well done Frank!

CLEETHORPES PARKRUN 172

.


NO ONE FINISHES LAST AT parkrun.


.

* 5.000 Personal Bests at the Country Park * Halloween announcement * 33 PB's including Kevin Green & Katrina Walster * 23 Volunteers *


.

Please note: this is a special official announcement – right that got your attention - it is now, from today, five weeks to go to the Country Park Halloween Special. So now is the time to start knitting your favourite spooky Halloween costume as we can announce, without further ado that our annual Halloween parkrun will take place on Saturday 28th October. How spooky is THAT!

Thanks to the volunteers

We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen: Donna ABERNETHIE, John ARMSTRONG, Pam BENDLE, Cynthia COMMONS, Strachan CRAIG, Flora FORSTER, Phil HENDERSON, Debbie HENDERSON, Clare HIGGINS, Finlay HOLGETH, Steven HOLMES, Annelis KNIGHT, Rita LINFORD, Sammy NEEDHAM, Stacey NEEDHAM, Dawn NEWTON, Archie RAINBOW, Jon SACHRO, Jane SMITH, Ian SMITH, Matthew STOREY, Frank THOMAS, Sheila WARD, Colin WRIGHT.

Yes, it's the 8.30am volunteer line-up. Vacancies are available for next week.

.

Despite it being, officially, the second day of autumn there was certainly a spring in the step of the 33 runners who managed a personal best today; with the mild conditions and hardly any wind attracting 169 parkrunners to the resort.

.

Leading home all parkrunners this week was Ryan Page who recorded a fast 16.08; only eleven seconds shy of his parkrun personal best. Ryan was part of the Lincoln Wellington team who won last week's Northern Counties 6 Stage Relays.

.

Ryan, from Caistor, averaged 5.05 minute mileing for his four mile stage and with his team finishing just over two minutes in front of the second team (Liverpool Harriers) Ryan has “high hopes” that his team can finish in the top three in the National event at Sutton Park in two-weeks time. The last time this area had a top three finisher in the National was when Robin Powell was part of the Gateshead Harriers winning team in the 1980s.

.

Beverley Wilson, led home all 62 parkrun ladies this week; clocking 19.56 for her three laps of the Lake. Beverley, the W45 & W50 course record holder, was also the day's top placed Age-Category runner with a high 84.11%. She ran the first ever Cleethorpes parkrun back in 2014 and her 18.50 still remains the W45 record.

St Albans Striders away day at Cleethorpes.

.

With rather an autumnal feeling to the morning and a cruel wind blowing only 25 personal bests were recorded this morning: despite over 200 toeing the start line. With the Great North Run and the Mablethorpe 10k taking place tomorrow this was quite an exceptional turn-out; showing how popular our event has become. Numbers were boosted with the Hertfordshire based St Albans Striders having an away day at Cleethorpes parkrun.

*STAR OF THE DAY AT CLEETHORPES COUNTRY PARK*

.

*CHRIS ECCLESTONE*

.

DSCN0495

Chris.

.

Chris, has run parkrun 14 times and is the Cleethorpes Country Park * STAR OF THE DAY*

.

Chris, alone with his son, Joshua, are regular supporters at the Country Park and the fact that some mornings, Chris, has come straight from a night shift to help out makes his contribution to parkrun just that bit extra special.

.

He first ran Cleethorpes parkrun back in April 2015 when he ran 24.33 for the distance. He has five personal bests to his credit: and has twice done the double.

.

His best time for the distance is 21.24 recorded in July 2016. All his runs have been at the Cleethorpes Country Park.

.

His best age-grade of 61.99% was recorded when he ran his current personal best. Chris's highest overall gender finishing position was 15th recorded in May 2016.

.

Chris runs in the VM35 age-category and is a member of the Wolds Veteran Runners Club.

.

He has volunteered his services at parkrun on 34 occasions, and since he has only run the event 14 times this must be one of the best, run/volunteer ratio, at the Country Park: so well-done Chris, you are our *STAR OF THE DAY *

.

Mad dash to the Bin ... and beyond.

.

Leading lady this week was Cleethorpes AC's Beverley Wilson. Beverley, the Country Park W45 and W50 course record holder, was the highest placed parkrunner in last Sundays Half Marathon: clocking 1.29.47 for third place, which earned her £100. She was also first counter for the victorious Cleethorpes AC Ladies team which also included parkrunners Sarah Edwards and Emily Kirk, none parkrunner, Jill Otley, was second counter for the team.

.

It is now 28 years since Beverley, as a 22 year old, won the Humberston Half Marathon, in 1.25.47, which was partly run on a similar route to last Sundays Humber Coastal Half Marathon. So, despite last week's event being double her usual distance she put in a commendable effort and her time compares well to her time from 28 years ago!

(L to R) Wendy, Ryan & Beverley.

.

Wendy Walsh, of St Albans Striders, third in this year's Watford 10K, was in second place today with Katie Cotton, in her 247 parkrun, in third. Katie is a bit of a parkrun tourist and I note today's run was her 108th different venue! I also note that Katie does not just accumulate run numbers (247) but contributes to the well-being of the parkrun community by having volunteered 53 times: thirty seven times as “Run Reporter” - so well done Katie!

Stephen Dring at the finish.

.

Leading home all 207 parkrunners this morning was Ryan Page our double category course record holder: JM 15-17 & SM 20-24. Ryan, who has a track 5.000m best this year of 15.47.2, recorded at Rotherham, will be running in next week's Northern Athletics Road Relay Championships as part of a strong Lincoln Wellington team.

.

Lee Piercy, in his 23rd parkrun, was in second, only four second shy of his PB; a little less wind on the back-straight and he most undoubtedly would have walked/run home with a personal best time today.

.

Stephen Dring, our W50 course record holder, was in third today clocking 18.25. Stephen was our highest placed regular parkrun male runner (6th) in last week's Cleethorpes Half Marathon, clocking 1.19.36: his first time sub 1.20. Stephen, with his compact running style, shot past me at 10 miles (I was watching not running!) looking like he could keep that pace going for the full marathon distance.

ABP HUMBER COASTAL HALF MARATHON

.

Well, I hope everyone has recovered from the excitement of last Sundays Cleethorpes Half Marathon and have achieved whatever they wanted to achieve: be it a personal best or just getting round the course.

.

This area is now officially a hotbed of running: no doubt helped by parkrun setting up in the Country Park in May 2014.

.

Attendances at local races and people out running have now surpassed figures achieved in the 1980s & 1990s, and in the week leading up to Sundays Half Marathon we had over 100 at Croxby on the Wednesday; 163 on Saturday at parkrun with 40 volunteers; and a massive 1600 entries for the Humber Coastal Half Marathon the following day.

.

The sense of community, created by parkrun, was also on display on Sunday at the Half Marathon with parkrunners taking on various roles. Organisers, Neal and Nicola Pattison, of Tape2Tape, managing to assemble 200 helpers on the day: no doubt achieved by the goodwill generated by their previous events. Don't forget their next event the Gruesome Twosome on October 14th.

Thanks to the volunteers

We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen:James ALLENBY, Barbara BELL, Michael BENTON, John BIRCH, Colin BLOW, Barry BRADLEY, Jo BURNETT, Yasmin BURNETT, Sean CLARK, Debbie COOK, Paul DAVIDSON, Joshua ECCLESTONE, Chris ECCLESTONE, Sarah EDWARDS, Susan GREEN, Janet HARTER, Stephanie HARTER, Mike MACDOUGALL, Sammy NEEDHAM, Stacey NEEDHAM, Andy PHILLIPS, Helen ROWE, Jane SMITH, Paul SPEED, Jeanette STEVENS, Matthew STOREY, Edward TREACHER, William TREACHER, Sheila WARD, Mike WELLS, Sarah WELLS, Lyndsay WHITE, Oliver WHITE, Wayne WINFARRAH, Colin WRIGHT.

.

With yet another themed rock speech from Run Director, Matt Storrey, ringing in their ears (I counted 12 groans, whoops, sorry, I counted 12 puns) today's mass attendance of 164 parkrunners set off into the morning sun with just that extra bounce in their step to record 38 new Personal Bests. Quite appropriately, Richard Roe, on his 50th run, was one of the 38 and his PB time of 19.57 also gave him his best ever age-grade (71.60%)

.

Also mentioned in the rock speech was that it is Josh Ecclestone's 17th birthday on Sunday and needless to say he was serenaded with what the neighbours described afterwards as an ear shattering rendition of the classic “Happy Birthday” song.

Ahh, shucks, just for me. Happy Birthday Josh!

Pacers, PBs and age category records were all part of the fun at this morning's Cleethorpes parkrun which saw 185 runners, joggers and walkers make their way around the country park.  Regular run reporter Colin Wright is enjoying a day out today but will be back with his notebook and pen next week.

Chris Allison and Mike Jones representing Caistor Running Club very well

.

There was an incredible 36 PBs set at the country park today!  Many of those will have been helped along by the pacers encouraging them around the course.  Caistor  Running Club saw 3 members set new PBs with Chris Allison, Nigel Morrison and Mike Jones all being able to ring the PB bell.  Emily Birch ran 28:12 this week, making it 2 PBs on the trot.   Karen Bird also got her second PB in a row by running 32:31.  Karen started at parkrun in January of this year running it in 42:26, so has made a massive improvement in her time.  There are too many PBs for me to mention all of them but very well done to you all!

Male placings

Stephen DRING (VM50-54) of Wolds Veteran RC, was first over the line in 17:49.  This was Stephen's 11th first finish in 108 appearances.

An unknown runner was second.  Don't forget your barcode!

George WILSON (JM10) of Cleethorpes & District AC, was third over the line in 19:33.  George caused quite a stir today as he achieved his amazing PB at the age of only 9!  Definitely a name to look out for in the future.  George was accompanied around the course by his uncle, regular parkrunner Andy Ely.  Running at that pace I'm not sure how much longer Andy will be able to keep up with him!

Sara EAMES (VW35-39) of Racing TNT, was first (6th overall) over the line in 19:41.  Sara's 6th first finish in 7 appearances. Rebecca HODGSON (SW30-34) (Unattached) was second (31st overall) over the line in 22:09. Jane HILL (VW50-54) of Cleethorpes & District AC, was third (33rd overall) over the line in 22:17.  Jane is improving every week, and achieved her 3rd PB in a row this morning.

Age category record smashed 

 

Mike Casey today set a new VM70-74 age category record, beating the previous record by almost 4 minutes!  In July Mick ran a 5k in Lincoln in 20:29.  That time places him 6th in the UK this year for that distance.  Well done Mick, you are an inspiration to us all.

Cath and Jake Hunt indulging in a spot of parkrun tourism on their camping trip

. Where could be better to spend this bank holiday weekend than in sunny Cleethorpes!  Many parkrunners had this idea and visited us from around the country.  There were representatives from 16 different running clubs including Caerphilly RC, Barnsley AC and Hyde Park Harriers.  Craig Ward and Claire Hardwick visited Cleethorpes from Gainsborough parkrun, wanting to repay the favour after most of Caistor RC visited them last week.  Cath and Jake Hunt from Peterborough are camping in the area and had a choice of a number of parkruns but chose Cleethorpes.  Welcome to Cleethorpes parkrun, we hope you enjoyed your visit. .

New to the country park

An incredible 27 people ran Cleethorpes parkrun for the first time today.  No doubt some of them will have been visiting the area for bank holiday (where else would you want to be?) and hopefully some will become regular parkrunners with us. .

CLEETHORPES PARKRUN 167

.


NO ONE FINISHES LAST AT parkrun.


.

Well, perhaps we should start this week's “News Report” by pointing out these “free” 5k runs don't work unless we have volunteers. This week's Run Director, Dr. John Potter, on the podium, pointed out that it was a real struggle this week getting enough volunteers to safely put on our parkrun; one would imagine that with more people running the 5K it would be easier to fill the roster every week, but I'm afraid this has not been the case.

.

We would encourage runners to volunteer at least once every 10 runs and many of you do just that, but we seem to have a hard core that is perhaps getting confused with the term “Free Run” and not making a regular contribution to what after all is their parkrun.

.

To me some of the run to volunteer ratio are embarrassing and I think some runners at Cleethorpes should “wake up and smell the “coffee” and realize that they can only call themselves parkrunner if they actually contribute to the event by volunteering: no one is getting paid at Cleethorpes parkrun, we are all volunteers!

.

So if you haven't volunteered for a while, or perhaps not at all, please email us at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/cleethorpes/volunteer/ and sign up to be a Country Park volunteer.

*BAZ SMITH*

.

parkrun 94

A rainy day in April 2016. Baz with son James.

.

Baz, has run parkrun 36 times and is the Cleethorpes Country Park * STAR OF THE DAY*

.

 

All his 5k's have been at the Country Park and his best time for the distance is 21.43 recorded in April 2017.

.

Baz first ran Cleethorpes parkrun back in October 2015 when he ran 24.01 for the distance. He has eleven personal bests to his credit; including an hat trick amongst those eleven.

.

His best age-grade of a high 70.76% was recorded in April 2017. Baz's highest overall gender finishing position was 16th recorded in September 2016.

.

Baz runs in the VM55 age-category. He has an average running time of 22.52 over the 36 parkruns he has run.

.

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

PB CORNER

.

Amazingly, with a strong wind blowing: enough to blow the finish posts over; 35 of you recorded personal bests today including on form Jane Hill of Cleethorpes AC, who has now recorded five PB's in ten outings. Fellow Clee AC runner, Debbie Iwanczuk, in her 29th Country Park appearance also recorded a PB for the course. Amy Portess was another who went home with a PB, in this her 28th parkrun: all run at Cleethorpes. This is just a casual observation of the results, obviously I haven't the time to give everyone a mention, but congratulations to all today's PBers!

COUNTRY PARK FIRST TIMERS

.

Today, in the glorious East coast sun, we welcomed an amazing 36 first timers to the Country Park for their first taste of three laps round our bottomless lake. We also welcome back to Cleethorpes Paul and Helen Devitt who now live in Belgium. Paul, as everyone will remember ran the Cleethorpes parkrun on the day of his wedding, wearing a wedding dress; though probably not THE wedding dress! If I remember correct I seem to thing he actually ran a PB that day: or is that just an urban myth?

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but wasn't it a bit quite today at the Country Park? Perhaps it was just a coincidence, but Caistor RC were on an away day at Gainsborough parkrun. I noticed that their attendance at the West Lindsey Leisure Centre venue bumped the figures up and Gainsborough parkrun had a record turn-out. So congratulations to Gainsborough parkrun on your record field and can we have our runners back now!

.

This week's * STAR OF THE DAY* is Andrew Reynolds, who has run parkrun 100 times; but as every parkrunner knows it isn't just about running; it is also about volunteering and Andrew has volunteered 22 times.

.

His personal best for the Cleethorpes parkrun 5K is 16.54 recorded in July 2017. Andrew has finished first at Cleethorpes on seven occasions.

.

Andrew's first appearance at the Country Park was August 2014 in only the twelfth Cleethorpes parkrun when he ran 21.00. The following month he recorded his first PB when he reduced his August time down to 19.42.

.

He runs in the parkrun SM30 age category. His best Age-Grade of 76.53% was recorded when he ran his current personal best.

.

Andrew has chalked up thirteen personal bests since his inaugural Cleethorpes parkrun appearance in August 2014.

.

He has run Cleethorpes 83 times. He has also run: Brighton, Hanley, Lincoln, Penrith, Hull, Peter pan, Humber Bridge, Colwick, Liverpool, Pontefract and Scunthorpe. His best ever, non-Cleethorpes run was at Scunthorpe when he ran 17.07.

.

Andrew has also finished in first place at the Pontefract Racecourse parkrun. So well-done Andrew you are our * STAR OF THE DAY*

Leading home all 221 parkrunners – joint 5th highest ever attendance – was University of Bolton student, Sean Husband, who was first last week, but as an unknown. This week, Sean remembered his barcode, was first again, in an improved time!

.

Stephen Dring, in second, had a stormer, recording a personal best, and also broke his own M50 category record. Stephen stopped the clock in 17.41. He ran in the recent Great Grimsby 10K and crossed the line in 35.59, a PB and just four seconds shy of the Wolds Vets M50 club record.

.

Lee Piercy, in his 22nd parkrun, was third, in a PB time of 18.10; a nine second improvement on his January 2016 previous best.
