Colchester Castle parkrun – Event number 235 – 23rd September 2017

Due to an oversight, it was the inaugural parkrun ultra this week. The course was approx. 300 metres longer than usual, which meant well done to those 14 people who managed a PB despite the longer run.  Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week, but I expect there will be more PB’s after this long-distance run!

This week 301 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 25 volunteers:

Colchester Castle parkrun Event number 234 16th September 2017

As the economist Muhammad Yunus once said: “While technology is important, it's what we do with it that truly matters.” What we did with it this week was to have a few troubles getting all the results together. All the results from Saturday are now up to date and the errant barcode scanner has been told to behave and threatened with a tin opener if it doesn’t improve its behaviour. Thanks for everyone’s patience whilst we got it all sorted.
Saturday was also our Event Director and parkrun Regional Ambassador’s birthday, John, who has been involved with Colchester Castle parkrun from the very beginning turned 75. It is hard to understate just how instrumental and hardworking John has been in getting CCPR off the ground and making it the success it is, I think I can speak on behalf of the core committee in saying that his efforts have made our tasks so much easier. John has now decided to step down as Event Director but we will do our very best to maintain the high standards that he has set.
So onward and upward.
This week 339 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 37 were first timers and 68 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 28 different clubs took part.
