parkrun 284 12th January 2019

Once again, we had a great turnout as 418 runners, joggers and walkers joined us for their Saturday morning parkrun fix.  Making sure everything went smoothly, 22 volunteers did a fantastic job and were on hand to cover the various volunteering roles.  Thanks to the Phillipson family who took care of all things barcode related.

Unfortunately, the person in 44th position, didn't scan and went home with their small plastic finish token.  If this was you, no worries that you didn't scan, but can we please have our finish token back? Every week, we put up signs, give out reminders and do what we can to ensure that all finish tokens are returned.  Please, please don't take then home with you!

 

This week, the Run Director reminded everyone that the National Trust have made a few changes to the parking in Clumber, and have requested that you only park in the main car park near the visitor facilities or on the event field. There is limited parking behind Central Bark, but this fills up quickly.  Please don't park on any verges around the cricket field or along the entrance to the Central Bark car park.  These measures have been put in place to aid the Trust's ongoing conservation work. We were made aware that queues developed at the entrance gate this week.  With so many people entering Clumber at the same time, this is inevitable, so please give yourself extra time to arrive, park and attend the 8.55 a.m. briefing.

As usual, there were some milestones and birthdays today. Visitors Pip ROBERSON and Daniel BURNS joined us, along with their friends to celebrate their 50th birthdays. Running is clearly much more fun than partying...or perhaps they did both?  Joining the 10 Club were Evelyn OLDALE, Jacob WILKINSON, Kian BUTLER and Kula DYSON.  New Members to the 100 Club were Neil RUSHBY and Julie CARROLL.  Julie very kindly donated a prize to the 100th person to cross the finish line.  Here she is, celebrating with The Clumber Park Runners. 20190112_094301

See you all next time on the best day of the week....parkrun day!  #DFYB

Thanks to Oscar for wrestling tokens from people at the end of the finish funnel. All the little tokens are safe in their box ready for next week

51 first time park runners today! Well done for getting involved, hope to see you again next week, always on a Saturday at 9(ish) and always for free! And most weeks there's cake!

Congratulations to Alison and Darren Schofield for completing their 50th parkrun today, what a fantastic way to celebrate Alisons retirement this week after 37 years working for a delivery company! (Alison has hung up her midwife apron for the last time). The cake must have been amazing as it had all gone by the time I went to take a photo

What an amazing group of volunteers today, giving up their time so we can enjoy the run, a few new faces this week which is great to see. Take a look at the roster and email us if you would like to give back one Saturday morning clumberparkhelpers@parkrun.com

parkrun 282 1st January 2019

Happy New Year! Clumber Park looked amazing this morning as we all welcomed in the New Year... 432 runners took to the amended start line as, in keeping with tradition, we ran parkrun at Clumber Park the opposite way around this morning.

Clumber Park Run 01/01/19

Mark Crossley took to the bench this morning as Run Director along with Mark from Poolsbrook who advised the runners who were looking to complete two parkrun's today (Clumber Park and Poolsbrook) that it would be busy with a challenging car park.  Happily everyone at Clumber listened and used common sense and patience to ensure the people leaving early did so with the safety of other park users in the for front of their mind, thank you!

parkrun 281 29th December

I wonder if it was the consumption of too much festive food and drink that encouraged so many of you to take some exercise this Saturday?  Perhaps it could have been the mild, almost spring like weather that encouraged you all to get out of bed first thing in the morning?  Or maybe you were just fed up of the in-laws and needed to get away for a couple of hours? Either way, 404 of you took part in our 281st parkrun, of which over 11% did so for the very first time. We also had 19 volunteers this week - some experienced, some less so, but they all enjoyed being part of the parkrun community and contributing to an event which is so much more than merely running round a park.  Even the youngest participants can get involved and proudly wear a high-viz vest.

We all know how amazing parkrun is and for those of you who haven't read your parkrun UK blog this week, parkrun founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt has written an article  'Reflecting on the 2018 parkrun year' which is well worth a read.

This week Roy delivered the briefing and welcomed  Scott BEAUMONT to the 10 Club, Helena NICHOLSON, Steve NICHOLSON, Matthew BEER, Paul GEBBIE, Sarah PEARSON, and Stephen BAGULEY to the 50 Club and Paul SUMMERLY to the 100 Club.  No wonder there was so much cake (we've not had much recently)! Is anyone actually listening to Roy? Clumber Park Run 291218

As ever, the Run Director reminded everyone of the few parkrun 'rules' that are reiterated every week to make your run is safe and that you can quickly and accurately be issued with your result.  With this in mind, please remember that you should only cross the finish line once after two laps. If you don't intend coming through the funnel, please don't run right up to the timekeepers then do an emergency stop and duck away!   Stay in the finish funnel, in line all the way to the end and take the finish position token given to you.  This corresponds with your finish position time recorded by the timekeepers. Have this scanned, along with your barcode and drop it into the numbered baskets.  If you don't have a barcode or haven't registered with parkrun, you still need to hand the token in.  This week token numbers 16 and 39 were taken away (we'd love to have them back) so blanks will have to be made up which wastes volunteer time and leaves us with inferior tokens which won't always scan.

Roy also reminded everyone that we are holding an additional parkrun on Tuesday to celebrate New Year's Day.  Traditionally, this is always a busy event so arrive early to ensure you are parked and ready to attend the briefing at 8.50 a.m. We need to get the run away on time to assist those who intend on travelling to another parkrun which has a 10.30 a.m. start.  Remember to park in the main car park or on the event field.  At the request of the National Trust, please don't park on the verges on the approach road and around the start area. 

Happy New Year from the team at Clumber parkrun and we'll see you on Tuesday #loveparkrun

Junior Henry Layhe joined the 10 club.

A big shout out went to Niamh who has now done 50 volunteer runs. She was recently awarded her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and here she is with one of our other Duke of Edinburgh awardees Martha.

If you didn't see the Facebook posts Niamh and Euan raised £530 for Bluebell Wood Hospice at last week's Elf Dash.

Today another token was not returned. I would show you a picture of token 118, but I can't because someone walked off with it!!

Our last run this year will be on 29th December and we will be seeing the New Year in on 1st January with a 09:00 run. We are still short of 1 marshal for the 29th and 7 volunteers for the 1st January. If you can help us put these runs on, please email clumberparkhelpers@parkrun.com stating your parkrun barcode number.

Here are the stats:
