Run Report – Event No. 260 19th May 2018

 

Yet another gorgeous morning in the forest today – just how we like it!

A visit by the youngsters from Vale Royal AC made things interesting at the sharp end with Cameron Weaver (who really needs to update his club details!) and Holly Weedall recording the fastest times of the year so far.

There was a shout out for Eva Price, celebrating her 11th birthday and rounding off the morning with a PB - happy birthday and well done!
Keeping quiet at the start was Jeff Broadhurst who completed his 100th parkrun today – congratulations!!
Also congratulations to Aaron Doyle and Daisy McNally who earned their 10 shirts.

We were honoured by the presence of some highly experienced London tourists – Stuart Lodge (only 15 off his 500!) and Nicola Whitby from Bushy, plus Laurence Messer and Neville Simpson from Gunnersbury.
Plus great to welcome visitors from Birkenhead, Bracknell, Burgess (London), Cannon Hill (Birmingham), Cheltenham, Chester, Congleton, Croxteth Hall, Edinburgh, Forest Rec (Nottingham), Nostell (Wakefield), Princes, Shrewsbury (inc. Chris Clarke!), Warrington, Watergrove (Rochdale), Wilmslow and Wythenshawe.

A couple of announcements:
Should anyone need it – there is always a first-aid kit available by the start-finish tree.
Plus remember – there is a 15mph speed limit on the approach road. Please respect local residents and other forest users by keeping to it. If you feel the need for speed – save it for the parkrun!!

See you all next week.

Those cold wet parkruns seem like a distant memory now as we were treated to yet another glorious morning in the forest.

This week’s highlight was Northwich Running Club hosting another Couch-to-5K graduation. The support at the finish line for the returning runners created a fantastic atmosphere.
Congratulations to all the new graduates.

Run Report – Event No. 257 28th April 2018

 

A cool clear morning in the forest, near perfect running conditions. Unless of course you'd run the Kingsley 5k last night. Or were saving your legs for the Chester half tomorrow. Or you were one of the fraction of a hen party from the Isle of Man who's prosecco-based preparation is apparently not to be recommended (although check out our first female finisher, not bad at all!!).

The rest of us enjoyed a lovely run, with George Scott earning his 10 shirt, Deborah Jones her 50 and Allan Bird his 100th. In our first full house of shirts, special mention goes to Steve Collier, who earned his 250th. Given Delamere has only had 257 runs, that shows superb dedication. The rumour that he knows every tree in the forest by name is of course not true, there's at least 4 new ones he's not met yet. Steve is also our regular report writer, 48 reports last year alone, thanks Steve!

Congratulations to all our brave first timers, plus visitors from Barnstaple, Birkenhead, Bradford, Folkestone, Isle of Man, Warrington and Wythenshaw, hope you enjoyed our lovely course.
