Run Report – Event No. 234 18th November 2017

 

A beautiful autumnal morning in the forest with the trees changing colour was captured by Chris and Eileen Griffiths as they were putting the arrows out on the course, well before the 265 parkrunners set off on their 5K constitutional.

Also before setting off we were pleased to welcome another bunch of first-timers and tourists, congratulate those runners doing a milestone run, and give a round of thanks to our amazing volunteers.

This week we had 6 dipping a toe in the mud and doing there first ever parkrun (hope you enjoyed it and hopefully see you back soon!), and another intrepid band of tourists, including visitors from Chester, Congleton, Erddig, Lac de Divonne (Geneva), Pennington Flash, St Helens, Whitley Bay, Widnes, Worsley Woods and York.

Congratulation to Catherine Hill and Midori Greenland who completed their 100th run today.
Also Bob Corinaldi and Rebecca Kenwright, both doing their 50th.

Plus (another?!) special mention to Chris & Eileen Griffiths - doing their 150th parkruns whilst simultaneously collecting up the arrows (just hope the tail walker, Stephen Smout, managed to find his way around the course!)

Finally a formal reminder from the Forestry Commission:
We know you're all eager to get yourselves to parkrun on a Saturday morning, and home again afterwards, but please remember there is a 15mph speed limit on the access road - all the way from the main road to the car parks.
This is both for the safety of other park users and the local residents.

Thanks again to all who turned up, especially the volunteers, and see you all next week!

Run Report – Event No. 233 11th November 2017

 

Very similar conditions to last week - the heavy overnight rain fizzled out producing a lovely morning, but with the legacy of plenty of mud and puddles for the 303 parkrunners to splash through.

Another busy week ahead at the t-shirt factory:
We had Liz Chantler doing her 100th parkrun today (see pic below..),
Wendy Chilton doing her 50th,
plus Rebecca Main and Isabella Hall who become the latest members of the 10 Club.
Congratulations to all of you!

After a very wet night the rain gods turned off the taps just before this mornings parkrun, leaving it dry overhead but a bit soggy underfoot.

Run Report – Event No. 230 21st October 2017

 

Welcome back - we missed you all last week.

Our biggest thanks today go out to Brian (the storm), who held back his howling gales and lashing rain until all runners and walkers were safely over the finish line and the volunteer team had packed everything up.

OK (sorry Brian) but even bigger thanks have to go out to the volunteer team who give up their time whatever the weather - either out on the course, or in the start finish/area to make sure the event can happen.
We're always on the lookout for volunteers so if you fancy giving it a go follow the link above or speak to one of the team.

More milestone t-shirts awarded this week:
100 parkruns for Charles Fish - all completed at Delamere
50 for Danielle Ryder and Heather McBride, and
10 for Hanson Martin - making his Delamere parkrun debut from High Wycombe.
Congratulations to you all!

In addition to High Wycombe it was great to welcome tourists from Birkenhead, Bramhall, Edinburgh, Ellesmere Port, Erddig, Haigh Woodland, Heaton, Little Stoke, South Manchester, Widnes, Worsley Woods & Wythenshawe.

Thanks to everyone who turned up and see you all next week!
