parkrun 270 13th October

Today we were delighted to welcome a new Run Director to the core volunteer team.  Mark MANLEY is a regular parkrunner, volunteer and Worksop Harrier. I'm sure you'll all agree he did a fantastic job this morning?

He was there early to set everything up, did a recce of the course to ensure it was clear of any obstructions, greeted all the volunteers, delegated the organising of the volunteers to his wife LEE-ANNE, made coffee, briefed the new runners, briefed the rest of the runners, started the run, ensured everything went smoothly around the finish area, helped pack away, made more coffee, ate cake, processed the results and locked up.  Once he'd finished his stint at Clumber, he rushed home to write the run report for this week. Next week, he'll be wearing his Superman outfit!

Here's Mark's run report:-

As Winnie the Pooh would say - It was a very blustery day in the woods today! Despite the winds 291 people came out to join us in a very autumnal Clumber Park. This week our 23 volunteers were all members of Worksop Harriers Athletics Club, a big thank you to the club for supporting the event. Whether you're looking to start running, to run more or to improve your performance the Worksop Harriers have a group for you and information on joining can be found on their website. 20181013_085004

 

Don't forget the Worksop Halloween Half  Marathon is coming up on the 28th October. The course is spectacular, on closed roads and through the length of Clumber Park. There are a few places left but they are going fast, you can secure your place online today https://www.worksophalfmarathon.co.uk/
Our very own Halloween theme Park Run is on the 27th October so you've got plenty of time to start giving your costume some thought!
Visitors today were from London, Preston and somewhere called Rotherham? We hope you enjoyed your run with us this morning?
Well done to Cain Dagger who completed his 50th Parkrun with us this morning and was kind enough to bring cakes for everyone :)
Nigel Dawber and the Clumber Park Runners were both nominated in the English Athletics Volunteer Awards 2018 and were presented with a certificate by Pete Fendley. Well done to both and thank you for your continued support.

parkrun 269 6th October

Celebrating International parkrun day and National Poetry Day we had great oration from Julian HILL our very own poet in residence.

20181006_085947

In nineteen hundred and forty three,
my aunt Ester said to me,
Here's some money, put it in the bank
And in future years you'll have me to thank
It will always be there to go toward
All those things you cant afford
So I thought what if the same could apply
to physical fitness, so by and by
I started training for the Great North Run
Stored that away, as part of a plan
So over time I got well in credit
And now years later I can inherit
The balance left in my storage bank
And I have Nigel and PARKRUN to thank

We had visitors from as far afield as New Zealand running what was a rather damp and slightly muddy course

While the volunteers took cover under umbrellas whilst waiting for the 185 runners to complete the course.

Making sure the equipment was kept dry.

Even the first runner home Ian SADLER didn't manage to avoid getting splashed..

..so his kit will be probably in the washing machine before you've finished your coffees. Don't forget to read the label!

Wash

Next week it's a take over by the Worksop Harriers so there'll be plenty of Green and Black on show.

parkrun 267 22nd September

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, Saturday 22nd September, to witness the union of runners and Clumber Park in the holy 267th park-running, which is at an honourable ‘National Trust’ estate; that is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently and soberly…

September 22nd 2018

We have to start this week’s news with our congratulations to Chantal and Andy who joined us, along with their Bridesmaid Lynne, at Clumber Park on the morning of their wedding day!  Everyone was over the moon as they finished, with buggy, safe and sound, to the sounds of The Wedding March echoing across the park.  Definitely a photo for the album…!

IMG_0952

Jordan and Chris avoided the fallen twigs and conkers on the course this week to come in a close first and second at 18:31 and 18:33.  This time was a new PB for Chris, in fact we had 5 of the top 10 hitting a PB this week, well done all.

IMG_0961

There were other runners celebrating this week too as Simon and Leo were hitting milestones with their 50th and 100th park runs, congratulations to you both and keep up the great efforts.

September 22nd 2018

If you saw the news letter from 25th August 2018 (Clumber Park parkrun No. 263) you will have seen Camilla and Barry volunteering as tail walkers.  It was great to see them again this week but this time as runners, but still with the two dogs!  If you would like to volunteer then please let us know!

It was Mark Crossley’s 5th time as Run Director this week and he loves to get off on time.  We were able to start at exactly 9am again this week thanks to all the volunteers who turn up 30 minutes before the start for their allocation and briefing.  Once the run had started the volunteers could be seen hovering near the finish funnel preparing their tasks and waiting for the runners to arrive…
