A long hot summer

I am really enjoying this summer: the weather is fabulous, the football has been great with England doing far better than expected, the tennis has been exciting and I've got both my boys at home. Those of you who know me will know my older son studies in the US but he's been home since mid May. My younger son, who I write about a lot in 'View from the Injury Bench' has finished his GCSEs and has been off school now for nearly a month.  Yesterday Tom did his first parkrun since coming back from the US and Alex beat him. I know, I know, it's not a race. Could someone explain that to my sons' who are still, as I write this (Sunday afternoon) arguing over whether this means Alex is a better runner than Tom!

Anyway, the football is over (France bet Croatia in the final), the tennis is over (Djokovic beat Anderson) (this report really is a public information service) and I may actually get to eat family meals at the table instead of in front of the TV!

So, to parkrun. It was hot yesterday but that didn't stop 340 people lining up at the start line. Those of you who have already looked at the results will see that we had 337 finishers. Don't worry we didn't lose three runners: Melissa Allwork, Julie Letts and George Williams kindly gave up their runs as we didn't have enough volunteers. So a HUGE thank you to them.  George and Julie are marathon training so after they had closed down parkrun they did a training run.

We had added incentives yesterday as the Co-op are working in partnership with parkrun to encourage healthy lifestyles (a bit like preaching to the converted I would have thought) so gave all finishers and volunteers a box containing goodies.   What;s not to like!

Eleven people joined the parkrun family yesterday. Welcome to you all but particularly welcome to Emma McKittrick who did the funnel ducking role play! And to Elena Martinez who flew round in just over 30 minutes with her daughter in a buggy (and not one of those running buggies). In fact Elena was so fast her poor exhausted daughter fell asleep and missed seeing the dinosaurs! We had tourists too, of course we did. Jill Thompson was one of the 20 people who ran our parkrun for the first time having run elsewhere before.  Jill came up to me afterwards asking if I was the Run Director, as I wasn't I said no but I probably would have anyway as Jill is one of those no-nonsense northern women and so I wasn't sure if she wanted to complain!  She did say she thought our thermostat was broken as the heating had clearly been left on overnight. Sorry Jill - do come back again to see us and I will make sure we have cooler weather!  So lovely to meet you.

I didn't get to meet Andrew Civil - he was running his first Crystal Palace parkrun yesterday but his 229th.  He usually runs in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia but seems to be doing some English parkruns so may be on holiday as he's run in Woodley and Keswick as well as with us. You are making very good choices Andrew!

I didn't think it was really PB weather yesterday but that didn't stop 32 people running their fastest ever Crystal Palace parkrun. Ollie Longworth gets a PB every other week so was due one yesterday which of course he got.  Doug Taylor got a PB which should be disallowed as he brought along a south Londoner, George Butler who supports Arsenal. Mary Goodger came back to run with us for the first time in four years and took 1 min 19 seconds off her previous PB!  Well done to all of you and to all of those who ran their fastest parkrun yesterday.

Mark Mahoney and Glynn Mcdonald joined the 50 club yesterday.  Matthew Michael and Alistair Smith joined the 100 club.  Well done to you all, don't forget to look out for the email about your T-shirts.

I could go on about other achievements but but there were 36 people we had down as 'unknown'. Yes 36 people ran our mountainous parkrun without a barcode! So, we will never know if they were first timers, tourists or got a PB. DFYB

Final point - we are going to get a bit better at asking for volunteers as we seem to be depending on a small group of the same people to put their hand up. I'm going to pin a post on our Facebook page - it's a very attractive photo of Simon, Barry and me in matching outfits.........don't worry, you don't have to copy us, although we will love you a bit more if you do! Email the office or reply to the photo if you're happy to don a hi-vis vest and maybe get to play with a bit of gadgetry.  I think we will also be revitalising our volunteer page on the parkrun page so that's another place to drop us a note.

I'm here next week and then away for the next three Saturdays.  If anyone would like to have the parkrun quill and parchment please do let us know and I will gladly hand them over!

Until next week then, results are available by hitting the link.

When is a first timer not a first timer

Here we are in the hottest summer since 1976 and yet 259 people still turned up to run/walk/hop our beautiful slightly undulating course yesterday morning. Yes, I have to admit I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon having spent yesterday afternoon in a bar watching England beat Sweden before returning home to watch Croatia beat Russia.  It must be said a glass or two of ale was taken which may explain why even when I run I am nowhere near Che Compton's time.  Che didn't do Crystal Palace parkrun yesterday opting instead for a PB at South Norwood Country Park's first birthday parkrun before then running up to Crystal Palace for a few extra kilometres and then running onto Dulwich park for a few more miles. That man may be a machine!

Anyway Dominic Griese and Adrian Lobb probably thought they might be in with a chance as neither Che nor Jake were with us yesterday but not they were pipped to the post by Ian Fenn who had a blistering finish of 18:31. With it being the first Saturday of the month we had pacers from Crystal Palace parkrun but with the temperature gauges hitting 27 degrees by 9am we weren't expecting too many PBs - to get 25 was quite astounding. Kate Brownless on her ninth parkrun at Crystal Palace ran sub 32 for the first time, Simon Oliver went sub 27 and John Green went sub 22!  well done to everyone who ran their fastest ever parkrun yesterday, you are truly amazing athletes to run your fastest parkrun on what was probably our hottest day.

Twenty-nine people ran without a barcode - in that heat! So we will never know if they were first timers, achieved PBs, were world tourists or just crossed the finish line by mistake as we had very enthusiastic volunteers!  #DFYB

What we do know is that not all of the first timers were actually crinkle free, fresh out of the wrapper parkrunners. Robert Nagorski was listed as a first timer. To be fair to Robert he did start parkrun once before on 11th November but just as he was running over the walkway by the sports centre he suffered a cardiac arrest.  Luckily for Robert the runners near him were able to administer first aid and we also used our (at the time very new) defibrillator. Robert was awake and sitting up by the time the ambulance arrived.  He was taken to hospital, had a stent inserted and the following Saturday was back at parkrun to say thanks to everyone who had helped him.  Six weeks after that he did his first walk/run at his local parkrun in Poland and yesterday charged round our course in an incredibly fast 25:31. Welcome back Robert; in more ways than one, looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. *

Welcome also to all of you who came along and walked/ran/hopped our beautiful route and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

It's a short report this week as I'm supposed to sorting out our family holiday. Thanks as ever to all the volunteers who made it possible. there were 26 of us yesterday and if you would like to be one of our number then just email the parkrun office or send a message on Facebook. We welcome absolutely anyone and if you're very lucky you get to play with some high tech gadgets and you will definitely get a hi-vis jacket.  Results can be accessed by the link.

Until next week then - Michele #loveparkrun

*for anyone concerned about GDPR or patient confidentiality: Robert very kindly said I could write about him in my report this week. He's a great example of a person who is fit and healthy and so recovered quickly when he did become ill. Thanks Robert.

Tourists, milestones and missing tokens.

Today we didn't have a huge turnout - I blame the summer and people going on holiday, not many of them appear to be coming to Crystal Palace as we only had 328 people at the start line this morning. We had a bit of a shock as Che on his 250th parkrun (200th at Crystal Palace) didn't come first!  Peter Lighting did and got a PB of 18 seconds to boot. Well done Peter.  Che told me I'd been at his first parkrun and I was a bit concerned he may have been trying to take my mantle of Crystal Palace parkrun report writer, editor and stalker in chief but he 'fessed up that he'd checked the results of the day of his first parkrun.  This is going to be a bit like 'This is your Life' (if you don't know what that is you're too young to be reading this so ask a grandparent (if you've got one)). Che did his first parkrun on 28th January 2012 in a leisurely 20:36.  He came in as 20th finisher; if he did that now we would assume he was ill!  Others who are regulars at Crystal Palace who were there on that fateful day (besides me) and today were Tom Wilson, Jeremy Spooncer, Will Davis, Bob Bell, George Williams and Susannah Simpson and there were a mere 72 of us!*

Other milestone runners today were Adrian Lobb and Gaby Drinkwater who joined the 50 club, don't forget to order your T-shirt! Philippa Ryan joined the 100 club and celebrated with prosecco and chocs, for which we were very grateful!   John Russell did his 200th and whilst he may not get a T shirt for that it's a great achievement! Well done to all of you.

Sixty-six people ran without barcodes and so we have them down as 'unknowns'.  Lots of those were from the Kondavil Welfare Association who are a Sri Lankan charity raising money to help people with physical challenges in the village of Vanni in Sri Lanka. They run as a group called Yarl Devi Run and their annual run was with us today (they joined us last year as well).   Not all of our unknowns were with their group but sadly none of the unknown runners/walkers/skippers/hoppers/dogpullees/buggy pushers and Olympic handstanders got the much coveted email from parkrun with their time. #DFYB

We had a good turnout of first timers: fresh out of the wrapper with not a wrinkle between them. Fifteen of them in total and I'd like to thanks James (whichever one of the two new James' we had) for participating in the finish funnel etiquette role play! Whichever one of you it was ran a very respectable time of 23:34 or 27:37 - very respectable indeed, particularly in this heat.

Some of today's first timers were tourists. Our furthest flung traveller was Jo Sippel. Jo is a new member of the parkrun family having joined us in April this year and until today had run six times at her home parkrun of The Entrance which is about an hour out of Sydney in Australia.  Jo only arrived here on Thursday morning and had a bit of a cold but that didn't stop her putting on her trainers and running round our slightly undulating park.  Of course being an Ozzie she then had some prosecco and chocolate before coming to the Pride of Venice for breakfast. That's the beauty of parkrun - you go to a 5K run with people you don't know and they drag you out for breakfast. i suspect some people do it for the running but when when Alex and I ran in North Carolina last year it really was for the breakfast!

Forty-four people ran a PB today (for the uninitiated among you a PB is a personal best or quicker than you've done it before). In this heat!!!!  Too many to mention individually so i will mention a few: Dominic Grise got one for the third week running (the man is on a roll, getting a PB for each of our courses!), Julie Letts who took three seconds off her last PB (achieved in Jan 2017), Ollie Longworth (again!(who is running three minutes faster than when he started in Aug 2016)) and Thomas Skinner who ran over seven minutes faster than his previous PB which he got in May!  Well done to all of you - particularly Julie was feeling rather fragile and clearly couldn't get to Philippa's prosecco quickly enough!

As ever we couldn't do this without our volunteers and tday we had plenty but do remember we do need volunteers every week so if you feel like being part of the parkrun love without the sweaty exercise bit then do come along or pop a message on our Facebook page or email us.

*Che - I wasn't at your first parkrun :(

Until next week then.

Lots of running in the park

I'm writing this on Sunday evening after spending a very busy weekend: what with parkrun yesterday morning, Crystal Palace Festival yesterday afternoon, going to my sister's today for a BBQ and of course countless football matches I haven't had time to write this. Thank goodness then for Love Island..............at last I have time to sit down and start writing as I will not succumb to it!.

Bromley parkrun wasn't on yesterday so we got some tourists from there but I think a lot of people thought we were also going to be cancelled because of the festival so we only had 305 people champing at the bit to start a three lap run of the park. Saying that, in addition to our Bromley refugees we had a few other tourists whose children were taking part in the London Youth Games and so thought they would do a spot of running in our lovely park. And that of course is one of the many beauties of parkrun; when you're being dragged out of bed at an ungodly hour to support your gifted offspring in some sporting activity you can, at least, pop on your trainers and add to your parkrun tally!

Simon had brought along a step ladder and so we had to do a quick health and safety assessment to make sure he was OK to climb it and do the usual pre run briefing etc. I think it worked better as he was able to survey the crowd and project so everyone could hear him.

So, who were these 305 people who arrived at our beautiful park to run/walk/jog/crawl/hop/push a buggy/be pulled by a dog?  It was a slightly quieter start as most of our canine parkrunners wren't there yesterday and Milo, although being there was less brave without his Huskie mates so kept a low profile. He wasn't running as he has a sore paw but Belinda also ran without him at Wednesday's Dino Dash in the park so I wouldn't be surprised if he was feeling a bit left out and subdued. Not so subdued he didn't nick most of my Scotch Egg at the Festival later but that's another story!

Well, as I have already said we had a few tourists: 44 people attended their first ever parkrun at Crystal Palace yesterday.  Nine of them/you were brand new wrinkle free parkrunners so welcome to Jason Thomas, Max Edwards-May, Richard Sloan, Verity Treadwell, Louise Rigby, Rachel Russell, John Hughes, Eddie Cheung and Regina Cunningham.  Your Saturdays will never be the same. parkrun is a bit like a drug except rather than trying to re-capture that amazing high you're just doing it again and again to see what possesses people to get out of bed early on a Saturday morning when they could be having a lie-in and give that some people do this hundreds if times there must be some hidden secret to actually enjoying it.

I can tell you what that secret is............breakfast at the Pride of Venice afterwards!

If we had 44 new names yesterday and nine were brand new it follows we had 35 tourists (I can stop doing this complicated maths now as Alex has finished his GCSEs and so I don't have to show him how important maths is any longer!). Who were these tourists? Richard Vadon was one. Richard unfortunately left his wallet in the park and those of you who read this drivel every week will know I fancy myself as a bit of an investigative soul so I put a message on our Facebook page and then having found him on Twitter (well Piers did that bit) started following him and told him I had his wallet. To my shock he asked if I also had his shorts. As it happens I did, so there was a lot of speculation in the PoV as to what he might be wearing as we weren't sure a man wondering around the park, and then Penge, in his pants would go entirely unnoticed. It was with relief that we saw he had more than one pair of shorts as he was wearing some when he came to collect his wallet!

Scott Clarke also did his first parkrun in our beautiful, slightly undulating, park yesterday. Scott is worthy of mention as he was running his 197th parkrun but his first with us.  What kept you Scott?  He also has earned his purple volunteer T-shirt as he also manages to regularly volunteer. Joe Neanor was one of our Bromley tourists running his 163rd parkrun. Joe usually runs in Bromley or Orpington which are both a bit flatter than ours.......he still ran ours in 25.06, a bit too fast for my liking.

In a lovely bit of symmetry 44 people also ran their fastest EVER parkruns! Well done to all of you. With that many I can't mention you all by name but here are a few: Melissa Allwark went sub 28 for the first time, Ollie Longworth took over 20 seconds off his previous PB, Adrian Lobb took a whole second off his previous time but a PB is a PB so still a reason to celebrate and Nonie Hamilton got a PB, her second in as many weeks but last week's was her first in a year.  Well done to all of you and to those I haven't mentioned!

For some people yesterday's parkrun was a special one. Jacob Clark ran his 10th and, as he's a junior parkrunner, he can order a bright new white T-shirt. Well done Jacob. Erica Harris ran her 100th parkrun yesterday on the day she also marked being exactly 33 weeks pregnant.  Yes, Erica is the woman who insists on jumping high in the air whenever she sees Fred with his camera and who we have as our Facebook profile pic.  What a fabulous role model, we are all looking forward to meeting the new Baby Harris!

Thirty-one people ran with us yesterday and were recorded as unknown because they didn't have their barcode. A few people said they hadn't registered, a few said they had just forgotten and a few didn't really seem to mind, they're the odd ones! No barcode. No time so #DFYB.

A few weeks ago Doug Taylor came and ran with us. He is one of those annoyingly fast (but very nice) people who run and then take a scanner and start scanning slower runners. Yesterday he turned up with what we shall be calling the Doug Taylor Sorting Pots.  He had a row of pots numbered in increments of 50 and scanners (like Cameron Tough and me) were relieved of our tokens so when we go to PoV they were already sorted in batches of 50 which made token sorting so much easier. Thank you Doug, we appreciate all the posh yogurt you had to eat to get those pots for us!  Gary Edwards couldn't let it pass, he had told us that they had pots like that in Brighton but as a Palace supporter I can't possibly agree to anything people in Brighton think is a good idea and so I ignored him! Yesterday, he made some sarky comment about me agreeing to it. Gary, mate - I have the parkrun pen so we'll have less cheek from you or you'll find yourself down as an 'unknown' for the next six months!

Final point - as ever we were looking for volunteers yesterday, thanks to everyone who stepped up and helped make this the best parkrun!

So, lovely people; Love Island is over and I have a busy week ahead. Good night, good running and see you next week.  Results in the link below. But well done Che!

A little bit late

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday! I know, I know, this is a bit late and you’ve already forgotten your last parkrun and are beginning to get excited about your next one so this will be a reminder of what you did two days ago!

320 people lined up at the start line, once we had worked out where it was! We’d (well not me, the stalwarts who get to the park at lark’s fart in order to set up the route) arrived at the park only to discover the top section of the park was being used for the British Pentanque Championships. So, a quick bit of thinking and recalculating and a slightly three course lap was devised; slightly amended because we needed to change the finish line because of the building work. We are, I suspect, one of the more ‘flexible’ parkruns!

So, if you were one of the 25 people who had never run at our beautiful, if slightly undulating park then welcome. When you come back our route will probably be different! Caroline Judge ran her 124th parkrun but first with us, what kept you Caroline?! Daniel Crocker was another of our tourists running his 21st parkrun but first outside of Cardiff, we get quite a few International Tourists so welcome Daniel!

According to the results we had 15 brand new out of the wrapper shiny crinkle free runners.  But, dear reader, the results are just plain wrong. Pete Offord is down as one of our first timers. Not only does Pete run nearly every week, he volunteers nearly every week too. Pete, it seems wasn’t actually registered before! I reckon he’s done at least 50 if not more parkruns and NEVER had it recorded! #DFYB! Now, I wondering who else on our First Timer list wasn’t really a first timer?!

Ben and Issy Hilary-Gosling were first timers, I’m going to take a punt and say they’re brother and sister and they both ran a fabulous 22:57! Well done to you both and welcome to the parkrun family.

Sixty-six people ran their fastest ever parkrun on Saturday; far too many to mention individually so I shall pick a few. Jamie Morris took 30 seconds off his previous fastest, Maria Heather took 20 seconds and is edging ever closer to sub 32 and Jacqui Green ran her fastest despite a four month break! Well done to you all.

Richard Moorhouse and Paul Hilton both joined the 50 club on Saturday, we look forward to seeing you in your red T-shirts soon, and although not an official milestone Julie Letts ran her 150th, well done to you all.

Tom commented on the fact that the scanners did a better job than usual with very few discrepancies to clear up so thanks to Valerie Nichol, Alex Singhgolden and Doug Taylor for doing such an efficient job! Thanks also to all the volunteers as without them we couldn’t run. So, if you fancy experiencing parkrun from a different perspective drop us a line either to the office or on Facebook and we will happily allow you to wear some hi-vis and maybe let you play with some gadgets! Or, if anyone would like to borrow the parkrun pencil you can write next week’s run report. I will be around but have got a crazy packed weekend so don’t know when I’ll get a chance to write the report.

Finally, next Saturday sees the return of the Crystal Palace festival, it’s taking place at the top of the park so we will have parkrun at the bottom, probably the three lap route again.

Until then, have a great week. Oh results can be found by clicking on the link.
