For Angela

This week saw a huge turnout of 361 people who ran, jogged and walked the course on a rather chilly morning.

There were 43 first timers and we welcomed a number of visitors from all over the UK including Cleethorpes and Canterbury.

Special mention to our parkrun tourist from Lincoln – Richard Webster. He ran his 50th parkrun with beautiful dog Fudge. He dedicated his run to the memory of his wonderful wife Angela who studied here in Eastbourne in the 1990’s. She passed away 3 years ago tomorrow.

There were 39 PB’s today including Mark Hastings, Donna Maskell, Louise Cave, Jed Stevenson, Lorna Bell, Anna-Louise Akehurst and super speedy David Woollard – sub 19 now within reach !

Another milestone today was Chris Roberts who ran his 50th parkru

Thanks to Martin Sales who was taking photos this morning, look out for these in the next few days.

27th January is our 6th Anniversary. That will be our 333rd parkrun here at Eastbourne. With an average of 25 volunteers needed each week to ensure your free weekly event can go ahead it would be good if we can try to fill the roster without expecting the same people to do it week in week out. Volunteering is easy, check the future volunteer roster on line and email in to eastbournehelpers@parkrun.com with the dates you can help. We will ensure you know what to do, it really is fun. Taking part in an event on a Sunday? Why not use your Saturday rest day and volunteer.

Pam HART • Colin BURGESS • Mike THOMPSON • Gill WHEELER • Fenella MALONEY • Natalie MCCREATH • Jonni ANDREWS • Richard DAVIS • Steve STANFIELD • Tom KELLY • Darren BRODERICK • Rachael STEPHENS • Graham PELLING • Vicky YATES • Peter DRAKE • Chris KEEP • George RADANOV • Joanne VAN HEERDEN • Lorraine KYRIACOU • Martin SALES • Teresa MITCHELL • Andrew NAPIER • Mark STATTERSFIELD • James LANDER • Lorna EARL

Happy New Year !

Happy New Year parkrunners!

A happy atmosphere at Shinewater this morning for the first Eastbourne parkrun of 2018.

It was a cold start...but not raining at least. 336 people turned out to run, jog, walk (and pace) the course today. Thankfully the flooding from last weekend had cleared up and we were able to run the classic winter route this morning, with a few puddles to dodge along the way...

36 of you were first timers, well done guys and what a great way to start the year! We hope you enjoyed it and come back again soon.

This first event in 2018 was also pacer day. Thank you to our brilliant pacers for volunteering to help push those to their pbs this week. We had a massive 33 personal bests! Brilliant stuff.

Special mentions go to Lee Dunstall, who crossed the line in 20:10 knocking a whopping 55 seconds off his time. Well done Lee! Keith Axell also recorded a new personal best, crossing the line in a impressive time of 19.13. Other shiny new PB's to name a few, Lorna Cooper, Andrew Bettiss, Nikki Young, Ben Purkiss, Ewen Rose, Justin Sealey and Jazz Shiret.

It is inspiring to see so many people on the start line each week, lining up in all kinds of weather; a sea of effort as we all try to improve, enjoy the park and reach the finish line smiling.

Many people will have set fresh goals as the new year begins. The weather has been so wet and dark that it is often hard to stay motivated. But warmer climes shall be here before long and we'll soon forget what mud even looked like....(or maybe not)

If anyone out there is considering volunteering, do give it a go! Everyone is very welcoming and it's great to try something new and get involved.

Many happy returns to Peter Young, who celebrated his 70th Birthday today!

It was also Danny Garbett's 50th parkrun this morning, well done for reaching the milestone Danny. Heres to many more too!

Lastly, there are 3 places left on the Defib Training session on Thursday 25th January at St. Wilfs Hospice at 7.30pm. Get in touch if you would like to attend.

For all those who enjoy a cuppa and eccles cake at St.Wilfs after parkrun, it is also worth noting that the minimum spend to pay on card now is £5. I suppose that means we will now just have to buy two eccles cakes? It's a hard life...

With vigour into 2018 we go! May your parkruns be frequent and your running be happy.

Happy New Year

Apologies to those runners who turned up this morning hoping to run Eastbourne parkrun. We posted as early as possible once the course had been checked and the decision was made to cancel.

As I said yesterday these decisions are never easy. This is only the second time we have cancelled in almost 6 years !

We have informed East Sussex Highways about the flooding on the underpass, hopefully this can be rectified for next week which is of course PACER DAY !

Happy New Year from all the Core Team at Eastbourne parkrun.
