Coldham’s Common parkrun #23 16th March 2019

What Callie failed to add, in this her run report, is that this was her 100th parkrun and there were cakes and biscuits aplenty, even Nemo the parkrun dog got to try his first every cake courtesy of the wind!

 

Despite some very blustery spring weather a total of 266 people braved the wind and ran, jogged and walked the course at Coldham’s Common with us this week! Many of whom were rewarded with milestone treats of cupcakes, cookies and brownies. This weeks’ runners included 42 of you who came to your first ever parkrun and 14 people who came to their second parkrun (welcome back! Please come again!) 28 runners recorded new Personal Bests and we had 27 different clubs represented at parkrun today.
Nobody could have a parkrun without the amazing support of fabulous volunteers; 22 of whom marshalled, timed, number checked, volunteer coordinated etc. despite the wind today. Your hi-vis heroes were:
Helen D JOHNSON • Dominick MCINTYRE • Jane M WILSON • Jacquie MERCER • Richard LYLE • Maurice John GOODRICK • Tracy HUTCHISON • Andrew O'DOWD • Katherine Jane HODSON • Rachel EVANS • James Nicholas THOMSON • Libbie READ • Suzy ASHWORTH • Suzannah GILFORD • Cerys MCBRIEN • David MORGAN • Sarah HART • Callie VANDEWIELE • Silvia FERDIN • Rebecca W • Sarah CLARK • Elisabeth WHITEBREAD

Coldham’s Common #21, 2nd March 2019

Well looking at this week's parkrun it was pretty obvious that the Cambridge half takes place tomorrow, today's run was our 3rd smallest event, still 217 of you walked, ran and jogged round the course on what was Goldilocks weather (for the runners), not too hot, not too cold, not too windy or too wet.

A whopping 51 people ran their first Coldham's Common parkrun and a fair few of them were tourists, Iain Burns was our first finisher on his first time with us, good job he knew which way to go. The course conditions and general awesomeness of the runners led to 61 PBs and we had a fantastic team of volunteers who made it all possible.

Good luck to anyone running tomorrow and thank you in advance to everyone who will be cheering us on, I don't expect to beat 2:30 so I am certainly getting value for my money on my entry.

Next weeks' roster offers opportunities to try out almost any role, including writing the run report.

Coldham’s Common parkrun #19 16th February 2019

The planning had started a full week ago,

The team were prepared for sun, rain, or snow.

The call had gone out for more volunteers,

Enough had been found, calming all fears.

Early on Saturday setup began

Everything happened according to plan

The sun had come up on a rather grey day

And hundreds of runners set out on their way.

First timers, regulars, tourists from other places

Children and dogs, and all smiling faces.

When all was ready the briefing could start

Making it safe for all who took part.

The runners assembled, ready to go

The countdown was finished and off went the flow,

Out round the fields and back through the trees

With mud on the trainers, and mud on the knees,

Some walkers, some runners, some slow and some fast,

The tail-walker makes sure that no-one comes last.

Jonathan was up for it, around he flashed,

He got to the end - the course record he'd smashed!

To help build the spirit which we should all foster,

Next week maybe check out the volunteer roster?

All who participated had loads of fun,

You too can help out and support your parkrun.

This week 290 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 60 were first timers and 67 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.
