Eastbourne parkrun : Event number 359 ;13th October 2018

It was a relatively quiet parkrun today with a lot of local running events taking place this weekend.

This week 259 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.

As usual we welcomed a number of visitors - from Windsor, Thetford, Reading, Yorkshire

First male home was visitor Mark Symes , running his 342nd parkrun , first time at Eastbourne. Mark recorded a time of 17.11 with an age grading of 85.84%.

First female was Elaine Everill Hailsham Harriers with a time of 21.19.

Also well done to my nephew Dan Allistone who achieved a new PB of 18.33. Dan is the Southern Counties Boxing Champion welterweight division and trains with local Phoenix boxing club.  Dan's coach gave him the option of sprint drills or parkrun. No contest really on a warm, sunny Saturday morning in the park with 250 other parkrunners. I did explain to Dan that parkrun was a non contact event which he fully acknowledged. Dan says he'll be back soon to break through the 18 min time.

We also celebrated a number of  milestones today.  Well done to Jessica Marshall Tony Rochester and Brian Knights on 50 parkruns.

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers: A huge thank you to you all.

Southam Denied, Korchev Takeover and Pacers.

Perfect running weather greeted the 300 runners to Eastbourne this morning, providing ideal conditions for Pacer Day!
The course was out and back which is mostly tarmac and this lends itself to faster times.

1st Home was Stuart Pelling from Eastbourne Rovers in a time of 18:21, enjoying the 1st place finish for the 9th time.
2nd Home and denied a second win in as many weeks was Matt Southam, also from Eastbourne Rovers, in 18:32.

1st Lady was Rebecca Holdaway of Hailsham Harriers in 20:18 just 19 seconds behind her PB..
2nd Lady was Jenny Brown From Eastbourne Rovers in 20:38

Star of the show though has to go to a Junior. Ilya Korchev (Eastbourne Rovers), who lowered his own JM10 course record down to 20:11 finishing 7th overall. Very close to the magical sub 20 time, assisted by Richard Davis (Eastbourne Rovers) and Dylan Janetta (pacer, Eastbourne Rovers), fantastic job there.
Ilya has lowered the JM10 record on no less than 3 times this year and on this occasion knocked 11 seconds off of the previous best time.

Not to be out-done by his son Juriy Korchev scored his 7th pb in a row, lowering his time this year from 28:02 down to 22:33.

There was one official milestone this week achieved by Johnathan Scotcher who hit his 50th run in a time of 24:15, finishing in 75th place.
Significant other mentionable milestones go to Graham Purdye (Pacer) and Geoff Depper both from Hailsham Harriers who topped their totals up to 200 runs each. Only 50 more for those next official shirts Boys!

Another Hailsham Harrier, Paul Howell dipped under 21 minutes for the first time and landed himself a PB of 20:45
Steven Anderson lowered his PB by nearly 2 minutes scoring a new time of 21:04.
The 1 minute stars this week are: Matthew Terry (21:42), Debbie McDermott (27:20), Richard Wilson (30:20) and Heather Lavender (33:01). All lowered their PB times by at least a Minute.

There are too many other outstanding performances to mention but well done to all.

Event 357 – Matt’s 50th Run Win!

This week 253 people ran, jogged and walked the course, on a beautiful, if a bit nippy, autumn parkrun morning.

29 people ran at Eastbourne for the first time, of which 12 were completely new to parkrun. Hope you enjoyed your run and hope to see you back again soon. Beware, parkrun can become addictive!!

Our first time visitors included Leslie Jackson from Maidstone, running his 27th different parkrun, Nicky Johnson from Fountains Abbey, running her 37th different parkrun, and Derek and Margaret Blount from Bronberrik parkrun in South Africa who have both run at over 100 different parkruns! They also presented Eastbourne parkrun with the gift of a 250 milestone celebration flag. This can be used by parkrunners to help celebrate their 250th parkrun by either running with it or having a celebratory photo taken with the flag. Thanks to Derek and Margaret.

For milestones this week, well done to Keith Weblin, who ran his 100th parkrun, Luke Edwards-Evans, who completed his 50th parkrun and special congratulations to Matt Southam, who celebrated his 50th parkrun with a first place finish! Congratulations to you all.

41 runners recorded new Personal Bests this week including Alfie Starkie, his best time in 47 runs at Eastbourne, Fin Lumber-Fry in a fantastic time of 24:31, and Otis Fred Farmer with his best time in 32 runs at Eastbourne.
