#teamparkrun

Hello parkrunners!

Yet another beautiful day on The Sunshine Coast, we welcomed 308 lovely people to Eastbourne parkrun event no. 299. It's the big 300th next week so be sure to come and help us celebrate what has come to be the best part of our weekends!

Start_parkrun_19.8.17

It was the summer course this week and an amazing 35 runners recorded Personal Bests, including Elliot Hoskins, (who finished 2nd in a time of 17.53), Archie Wells, Mateusz Baran, William Chaplin, Kelly Tattam & Jason Remington...to name a few. Which just goes to prove Chopper T's theory of 'It is a PB course...It is!'

63 were first timers and representatives of 36 different clubs took part. I hope you guys all enjoyed it and come back next week.

A special thanks to TeamGB Sailor Nicola Boniface for tail walking yesterday, it was great to have you at Shinewater.

A director debut by George, who did a smashing job. Can't wait for Mr. Kellond's directing debut next Saturday, no pressure Dave, suffice to say he will not require the megaphone.

Best wishes to the super brilliant Belinda Cramp, who celebrated her birthday with a whirl on barcode scanning. Shout out to Belinda's scanning number 1. Louise Rice too. Who was greeted by Huw with a 'Hey! How come you got a pink jacket?!'

Apologies to anyone who got stung yesterday by a pesky wasp. We've now located the nest and should be ok from now on. But as an added precaution we'll do the out and back course next week to be on the safe side. Hopefully they won't bug us anymore! ... (Get it?) haha. Oh dear.

Its all about Gary

Down at parkrun HQ, we normally get a whole bunch of people hitting their milestone run.  This week, however, was an exception, as we had just the one runner that hit a milestone.  He celebrated his 50 parkruns with a win.  Congratulations to Gary Judges.

I'm often told just how boring I am, and was therefore dispatched to trawl the parkrun masses for some worthy news for the parkrun report.  One thing I learned was the overall feeling that the run was very tiring (other words were used other than tiring, which I cant print) for quite a few runners and the appreciation shown by the said masses for the organisation. I can't be blamed of been boring now, with all this news brought to you.

This week 320 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 39 were first timers and 74 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 25 different clubs took part.

Male placings:
Gary JUDGES in 17:46.
Jack MADDEN in 18:09.
Stuart PELLING in 18:30.

Female placings:
Natalie MCCREATH in 20:10.
Louise OLIPHANT in 20:21.
Liz LUMBER in 20:40.

On Saturday 19 August 2017, following the World Athletics Championships in London, the UK's National Lottery funded Olympic and Paralympic athletes are teaming up with parkrun to encourage the nation to get active with #teamparkrun.

To thank you for all your support for sport at all levels over the years, and being right behind them every step of the way, the UK's top National Lottery funded athletes will be right behind you on #teamparkrun, acting as tail walkers at parkruns across the country.

For anyone interested in 'Sailing' and would like to meet her, Nicola Boniface will be our tail walker. Don't forget your barcode Nicola, no barcode, no time.  Please dress as Popeye to be in with the chance of winning the outfit contest. That's parkrun 299.

Eastbourne parkrun started on 28th January 2012. Since then 6,029 participants have completed 44,954 parkruns covering a total distance of 224,770 km, including 8,023 new Personal Bests.

The week after, Eastbourne parkrun will be 300 runs old. We're hitting some serious numbers here folks.

I've even added a splash of colour. Booorrriiinnnggg, really?

 

Event 297 5 August 2017 World Championships Pacer Day

It was a sunny one today so I was impressed to see there were 45 PBs by the 350 runners. Sure we set off about 5 minutes late due to all the milestones, well done everyone reaching 50 / 100 parkruns and thank you to Martin Sales for the Cake, Amelia enjoyed her 4 pieces!

Todays milestoners were:

  • Michael Ellis 100
  • Veronique Lain 100
  • Martin Sales 50
  • Keith Weblin 50

And well done and thank you to all the volunteers and pacers I am sure that contributed to the high percentage of PBs.

Obviously we cannot mention all PBs but... There seemed to be a big grouping of PBs in the 21 minutes with Andrew Hobden, Mark Bassett (again), Lisa Goldsmith (again), Scott Stanfield, William Ahl, Lee Osborn and Paul Hollis all setting PBs.

There then seemed to be another massive grouping of PBs in the 23 minutes with Philip Wright, Kenny West, Giles Owen, Ricky Curran, Suzi Christie, Travis Rolfe-Cane (Junior) and Gary Wren, Sean Wright and Chris Mullens all presumably coming in with the sub 24 minute pacer.

A mention also for Nick Wheals achieving a PB in his 53rd parkrun with 26:17, Jennifer Dearie ran her first sub 30 and Allison Kelly got a great PB falling just short of a sub-30 time that will surely come soon, Bill Elliot took 50 seconds off his PB with a fantastic 31:41.

Also congratulations to Beabop who's 21 today and ran her 31st parkrun!( possibly with a slight hangover)

Well done everyone.

Event 296

Weather conditions looked like they were going to be favourable for some quick running but the sun came out and it got a little hot. I was marshalling today, making sure that people don't go over the overpass and up towards Polegate and was delighted with the number of thank you marshal comments I received on my 25th volunteer role. I also got to have a lovely chat with some of the walkers that were out and about this morning and whilst most the comments were positive there were a couple of ladies that were sworn at by a parkrunner because their dog got in the way, please remember it is a run not a race, it is free and there is always next week, the walkers and their dogs have as much right to be there as us and there is no need to tell them to put their dogs on the lead and and certainly not to swear at them! Luckily the 2 ladies were very good natured about it and really positive about everyone else who was thanking them for moving to one side and they were delighted to tell me that they approved of all the men in Lycra!

There were lots of good performances this week with 35 Pbs from the 285 runners, sorry I can't mention everyone! Surely one of the youngest to set a PB was Isaac Phillips, running his second parkrun and took over 3 minutes off of the time he set on his first attempt, Polegate Plodder Tom Kettle ran his first sub 19 and David Buist ran his first sub 20 by knocking off 20 seconds from 4 weeks ago.

Anna-Louise Akehurst set her first PB since February on her 24th parkrun and is edging ever closer to sub 40, Sarah Doherty set a PB for the second week in a row and given her progress since March is well on the way to running sub 30 and Clark Webber is on a fantastic streak with 5 consecutive PBs and with any luck will break sub 28 with the pacer next week and with a time of 27:03 I imagine Emma Delea will be chasing the sub 27 minute pacer next week.

As I was basically at the half way point I left well before the start so I asked Katie if there were any announcements and she couldn't remember any so imagine my surprise when I go through the results looking for 50th milestones and find that Adrien Coyne was running his 250th of which 239 have been at Eastbourne. Although not an official milestone Tim Reading was doing his 150th parkrun. Well done both.

Well done everyone today and hopefully we will see a big turn out for pacer day next week.

This week 285 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 48 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 27 different clubs took part.
