Phew – another hot one!

And another great turnout with 300+ runners enjoying the warmth and the dappled shade.

Congratulations to Brian Davies, more often seen at Pennington Flash but made his 10th visit to Delamere today to earn his 100 shirt.
Also congratulations to Gemma Barnett and Jane Reid who completed their 50th parkruns (Gemma also being female first finisher for the 34th time!)

Big welcome to all our tourists – this week including a contingent from Chorlton Runners.

Plus special congratulations to Ruth Clayton. Little did she know that when she ventured to Delamere to do her first ever parkrun, she would become today’s 16th first timer, and so Delamere’s 11,000th participant!

Big thanks to all our volunteers – we couldn’t do it without you.

See you all again next week – where someone will be celebrating Delamere’s 12,000th PB!

Run Report – Event No. 265 30th June 2018

 

Another beautiful day for a run, but so hot in the exposed stretches and so dry that our feet raised clouds of dust. The heat didn’t stop our first two runners back achieving PB’s though – well done to Jamie and Isaac from West Cheshire AC and also huge congratulations to Alice from Vale Royal AC who was first female back on her very first parkrun!

There were a number of people achieving milestones today :  Patrick Scott (a VRAC junior) and Zak Woodward have both done 10 parkruns, Roger Jones has now completed 50 parkruns and Lauren Walker has completed 100 parkruns.

Volunteering at the parkrun can be a really rewarding experience and there are a number of roles to choose from. Today we had Mr ‘John’ Carruthers as our marshal down by the lake along with his black labrador Carrie. Although John can’t run any more he is a very enthusiastic supporter of parkrun and shared some of his history with us. He was a middle distance runner at Oxford 4 years after Roger Bannister ran the 4 minute mile at the Iffley Road track there. He went on to teach Geography for 7 years before becoming a Senior Education Officer in Cheshire, working with architects to build new schools.
A big thankyou to John and all the other volunteers who supported the event today.

Run Report – Event No. 264 23rd June 2018

 

Another morning of fun in the sun for 274 happy parkrunners.

Yet again we had a fine selection of first timers and tourists adding to the mix.
Today there were tourists from Phoenix, Runcorn (about as close as you can get) and Lake Joondalup, Australia (about as far away as you can get).
Plus many places in between – including a contingent of Shropshire Shufflers from the Shrewsbury parkrun.
Welcome to you all !

Congratulations to Phillipa Dick and Dino Walker who both earned their 100 shirts today.

Massive thanks to this week’s volunteers.
Remember we’re always on the lookout for volunteers to help the event run smoothly every week. No experience is necessary so even if you’ve never done it before, helping out just once makes a big difference.

Enjoy the sunshine and see you all next week!

Run Report – Event No. 263 16th June 2018

 

After last week’s enforced tourism courtesy of Gary Barlow, it was great to be back on the woodland trails of Delamere Forest this morning.

The rain came back too giving some much needed overnight refreshment to the parched ground, but then amazingly stopped just as we were about to get underway.
This resulted in a beautiful fresh feel to the forest – accentuated by the smell of honeysuckle along the upper section of the course (thanks Ann!).

Another bunch of milestones out there today:
Carolyn Beamson, Nina Walker & AJ Halford all doing their 100th (AJ tail-walking to her 50th volunteering stint too!)
Andy Wallace and Shirley Hurst completed their 50th.
Juniors Nicholas White and Tomos Pritchard both doing their 10th.
Plus special mention to Chris Clarke who returned to complete his 100th run at Delamere today.
Congratulations to all of you – just hope the t-shirt factory can keep up!

Amongst this week's tourists we were delighted to welcome a contingent from Spectrum Striders RC – particularly as they came bearing cake!
It transpires they bring cake every week to whichever parkrun they’re attending – so just for the record, there’ll always be a special welcome anytime you want to come back to Delamere!!

Big welcome too to all our other tourists and first timers.

Plus huge thanks to our wonderful volunteers who make it all happen.

See you all next week!
