Parking warning

Firstly may I thank all who have embraced the recently introduced parking charges for non NT members, not forgetting that any parkrun volunteers park for free (parking ticket available from the Run Director).

Now on a serious note. Anyone who thinks that by parking on the main road to save on paying for parking please note the following. Police are now regularly checking for parked cars and are handing out parking fines. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

 

23rd June parkrun cancellation

Due to the National Stand Up Paddle Boarding event taking place on the 23rd June we have had to cancel our parkrun. Your nearest parkrun is either Barrow, Millom, Keswick or Lancaster.

 

 

Latest updates for 28th April 2018

Hi everybody. Looking forward to greeting you all on the morning. A few things to mention.
1. Firstly some bad news. The cafe have informed me that they have had to withdraw the "25p off your coffee if you bring your own cup" offer. 
2.Don't forget parking charges now apply, volunteers collect your free parking pass from the RD.
3. #finishformatt For anyone wanting to run the extra 0.6 mile in the morning can I please suggest the following. The distance from the start to the meadow gate and then retrace your steps back to the start is 0.6 mile. You can do this either before hand or after completing your normal parkrun. PLEASE PLEASE do not go through the finish twice as this will mess up the results for everybody, especially your results processing volunteer.
4. As part of my pre run brief we will have short silence and applause for Matt. It was good to see several of our regular runners on Thursday evening running the 3.7 miles at Brathay.
That is enough from me for now, more at 09.00 in the morning.

 

Back on the meadow route for Easter

Hi everybody,
I hope you are all looking forward to starting your Easter weekend with a parkrun here at Fell Foot. The good news is we are back on our original meadow route for at least the next 2 weeks. So dogs and buggies are once again welcome (thank you for your patience over the last 12 weeks). Please listen carefully to the Run Director's run briefing and marshal instructions as we are using extra cones to protect certain corners of the course. The ground in places is still soft and wet so we are working with the NT to protect them as much as we can. SO DO NOT CUT CORNERS!
 
The second piece of good news is the cafe is now open but only for light refreshments at the moment. Please do support the cafe and it is also good chance to catch up with our parkrunning family post run.
 
Can I as Event Director thank those who were faced with the new parking charges last week. The vast majority were very understanding about the reasons behind the need for Fell foot to start charging our parkrunners, again thank you. We will shortly be updating our website to correct this information,
As a reminder the following is from last week's post
Last weekend the National Trust started to charge parkrunners who are not NT members for car parking. Those who are NT members please ensure you bring your membership card and scan it at the ticket machine to obtain your parking ticket. This is essential not only in getting your ticket but each time you scan your card Fell Foot gets money from central funds towards its upkeep.
For those people who are marshalling or volunteering who are not NT members you still get free parking. Please go to the Run Director on arrival and they will issue you a parking permit for that morning.
Parking Charges are
1 hour £3
2 hours £4
NT Membership is from £5.75 per month
The following is from Peter the head recruiter at Fell Foot
When you join the national trust at Fell Foot we receive direct funding which can then benefit the park. It would be amazing if you could join with us!
All you need to bring is your sort code and account number to set up direct debit. We'll give you everything you need there and then!
I'll endeavor to have a recruiter on the car park from 8.30am. We will either be able to take your car registration and you can join after the run without paying for parking, or you can join before the run. It takes about 5 minutes to complete the form.
Please encourage as many other park runners to join at Fell Foot! Membership helps us look after Fell Foot for everyone and comes with so many benefits for the member (free parking, entry to 500 NT places etc).
Any park run marshalls will get free parking when marshalling… but there is nothing stopping marshalls joining too!
Many thanks,
 
Finally, as it is the Easter holidays we look forward to giving all our many visitors a friendly and warm welcome to Fell Foot. If you are a parkrun tourist please do come and say hello before or after the run.
 
As I sign off may I in advance wish you all a happy and blessed Easter. Not forgetting #DNFYBC and #DNFYNTMC
Ron
Event Director
