Run Report – Event No. 276 15th September 2018

 

Today’s contingent of 278 runners were rewarded with perfect running conditions at Delamere this morning.  The recent rain has softened the ground but not enough to cause any muddy areas on the course.

Congratulations go to Delamere stalwarts Zoe Dixon and Elaine Dawson who both ran their 50th parkruns today and also to Anthony Dunn who reached the impressive milestone of 250 (173 of these at Delamere).

 In other news, well done to regular Delamere attendees David Twiss and Amy Farrington who last week ran the Great North Run and were raising money for the mental health charity Mind.    David finished with a time of 1 hour 56 and Amy 2 hours 27.

 Finally, we are always on the lookout for more volunteers to help with the organisation of Delamere parkrun.   If you know any teenagers who are starting Duke of Edinburgh award programmes then it worth being aware that helping at parkrun is an approved activity for the volunteering part of the award. We have had a number of D of E people helping in the past few years as it is a great way to give something back to the community and is a big help to our race directors when they are trying to fill the weekly volunteer roster.

 

This week 278 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 38 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 29 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:

Seb Roberts - Laurence RUDKIN • Mark David BOWDEN • Mark FLANAGAN • Mike GEARY • Richard HILL • Nicola RUDD • Claire MORTON • Sam WASHINGTON • Elizabeth CHANTLER • Jeff BROADHURST • Joanna CASE • Charles TWISS • Rebecca BROADHURST • Lesley BOOL • Dawn APPLETON • Amanda BROWN

Another Saturday morning at Delamere, not sunny, not raining, not windy, so just right for 250 pairs of feet - plus assorted four-pawed friends - to go scampering round the forest!

Three visiting runners earned their 50 shirts today, Jonathan Duffy, Reena Dhopate and Kevin Fitzpatrick, plus 3 junior Delamere regulars achieved their 10 shirts, Jack Hughes, Catie Boyde and Edward Rayner. Well done!

“Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness. Close bosom friend of the maturing sun.”  - Ode to Autumn

When John Keats wrote those famous words in 1819 surely he must have been inspired by the thought of the first Delamere parkrun of the Autumn season.  The sight of such a magnificent group of athletes would encourage anyone to get poetic.

Yes, Summer is now over and thoughts turn to falling leaves and darker nights. It was, however, still a bright and pleasant morning in the forest for a bumper turnout of 341 runners who ran, walked and pushed the five kilometre course. A sizable contingent from Vale Royal AC made up the majority of the fastest finishers and we also welcomed a group of visitors from Styal Running Club.

Kudos is due to Lesley Bool and Tim Baglole who both reached their 50 parkrun milestones this week. Tim also managed to celebrate by running a PB.  There were also a number of junior runners reaching their 10th run. These included Kaci Hudson, William Standing, Oliver Shorland, Toby Shorland and Dylan Carney. Congratulations to all of you.

Next week (8th September) the North West Relay Championships will be held at Delamere starting at 10:10.   There may well be red signs and arrows relating to this event dotted around the parkrun route.  Please ignore these as parkrun will follow the usual course and begin at 9:00 as normal.

Thanks to our volunteers this week. If you are a regular runner then please consider taking a week out and volunteering instead.  If everyone takes a turn then it reduces the burden on those people who frequently organise and make the event run smoothly.

Run Report – Event No. 273 25th August 2018

 

What can I say that hasn’t been said 99 times before?
Well quite a lot as it happens – today’s parkrun was quite exceptional for a number of reasons!

Let’s start with the weather. The heavy showers forecast throughout the morning abruptly stopped just before 9 and didn’t resume until (most of) the parkrunners were on their way home.

OK maybe that’s happened before, but today must surely be the most number of milestone runs seen at Delamere.
Topping the list is Brad Ehlen who completed his 250th today.
From the early days of Delamere parkrun Brad has been a familiar sight pushing daughter Freya round the course in her pushchair, and today was no exception.
To add to the celebrations we had chocolate and malteser cake plus sweet treats to reward the runners and volunteers – thanks Brad and congratulations!
Also we had Steve Smith completing his 100th – all done at Delamere.
Luciana Fallows, Andrew Caldwell, Simon Pritchard Jones and Nicola Rudd doing their 50th.
Plus juniors Oberon Kearney, Darcie Victoria Hudson and Joseph Woolley all doing their 10th.
No wonder the t-shirt makers are struggling to keep up – congratulations to all of you!

Today must also have been the most experienced field of parkrunners ever seen at Delamere with 8 runners having 250+ parkruns under their belts (including Brad!).
That list is topped by first finisher Nick McKay doing his 446th parkrun, visiting again from Wimbledon with Sophie McKay (who’s on 351).

Big welcome to all our first timers and tourists.
We do like it when we’re visited by ‘contingents’ from other parkruns/clubs and today we were honoured by a visit of 11 runners from Wirral AC, many of whom were making their Delamere debut, plus another visit by 8 runners from Penyffordd Run Club.

Huge thanks to all our volunteers. If you fancy giving it a go let us know. Remember:

  • Volunteer just once and you help ensure parkrun can continue
  • Volunteer 25 times and you get a free t-shirt
  • Volunteer 100 times and you might just get embarrassed by the run director!

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

Another warm summer's day greeted the 282 parkrunners who visited Delamere this morning.

A special welcome to our first timers and tourists.
Amongst the tourists we had first finisher George Frost of Sale Harriers making his Delamere debut.
And a brilliant run by junior Grace Roberts of Vale Royal AC finishing in 5th place and first female.

Two white milestone t-shirts go to juniors Thomas Wilde and Owen Hughes who completed their 10th parkrun today.
And two red shirts to Simone Tondelloni and Tom Atherton, both doing their 50th today.
