Fountains abbey run report 330

330 runners completed parkrun 230 today. 11 degrees and cloudy must have been perfect running conditions as we had 41 pbs!
Well done to Toby Osman who was first male home in a time of 16.22 and Emma Sorby who was First Lady in a time of 20.29.

A huge welcome and congratulations to our 10 first timers today who we hope enjoyed their morning and we look forward to seeing you all back here again soon.

Kate Rosie, Joshua Bell-Walker and Paul Tohor all completed 50 runs today and Samuel Currass completed 100.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered this week, it wouldn’t happen without you.

We still have plenty of spaces for volunteers over the next few weeks so just send us an email if you would like to have a go.

Important notices concerning the Fountains Abbey parkrun.

Please do not be offended if we ask you to help us; we can’t run without volunteer support. Many thanks for your co-operation & support in looking after the beautiful environment in which we run each week.

The beautiful play area by the cafe is open from 10am on Saturdays; we politely welcome visitors down to the Abbey for the parkrun and if you’d like to stay and spend more time in the beautiful grounds please just head back through the Visitor Centre once the grounds open to the public [free to NT members].

A polite reminder to all parkrunners that the trees at the start area are not clothes pegs. Please would runners leave their kit on the ground during the run; not doing so may risk the NT staff removing the item from the tree.

Fountains Abbey parkrun takes place before the NT site opens to the public, therefore parkrunners, volunteers & spectators are kindly requested to be through the Visitor Centre gate and down by the Abbey before 9am or you will be denied access. We politely ask that all visitors to Fountains Abbey parkrun help us and our special relationship with the NT by respecting the basis upon which we operate. The gate at the top by the Visitor Centre is now closed at 9am so anyone hoping to get in after this time will be disappointed. The good news is that we look forward to joining you for a coffee in the Visitor Centre café as soon as we possibly can. Thank you for your support in this important matter.

All parkrun visitors must vacate the Abbey grounds before 10am when the NT site opens.

Visitors arriving at Fountains Abbey by bicycle are asked to leave their bikes in the racks at the Visitor Centre please. Bikes are not allowed in the grounds beyond this point. We can’t allow kids’ scooters during parkrun, sorry.

There are toilets by the Visitor Centre and these are well signposted. There are additional toilets around 50 metres behind the old start line by Fountains Hall. Please use them - no exceptions; we need your fullest support with this. Thank you.

Please stand in the correct place at the start of the run according to your ability. If you are slower than the runners behind you this will cause a bottleneck at the start of the parkrun. Please mind your feet particularly at the start of the run. No slips and trips please.

All dogs must be on a short, hand-held lead (no cani-cross leads) to minimise trip hazards. One dog per runner maximum. We also ask that dog runners occupy the edge of the start area, with the dog on the outside, to minimise the chance of the dog’s lead tripping somebody up.  An adult should be running solo, accompanying a child under-11 or in charge of a dog or a buggy but never both please.  Dog walkers who are supporting runners are asked to keep off the paths that the runners use during the run please.

A reminder about one of the key rules that govern parkrun. For your, our and your children's protection could parents please help us by making sure that any children under 11 are accompanied (i.e. at arm’s length) by a responsible adult at all times.

Why not order yourself a printed plastic barcode?

A range of tough and durable plastic parkrun barcode ID tags are available via http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/ These are the only UK authorised and professionally printed tags and feature the parkrun branding and logo, your athlete details and can also be personalised with your ICE (In Case of Emergency) telephone number and additional information including specific medical details. They come in a range of options and can be attached to a key ring, laces, and running vest zip or worn on a lanyard.

Fountains Abbey Run Report #229

Fountains Abbey parkrun #229, 8th September 2018.

A big weekend of running with 43,000 turning out for The Great North Run on Sunday morning and a hardy 301 souls for the warm-up event on Saturday morning at a damp and distinctly cooler (but no less Fabulous) Fountains Abbey parkrun.

The weather actually meant for pretty good conditions for those running and walking the course (hence 38 shiny pb's), but maybe less so for our fabulous ever-smiling team of volunteers. Very many thanks to each and every one of you.

Congratulations to first-time first finisher, visiting runner Ben Wimpory in 17:36 and first female, local Ripon Runner, Emma Sorby in 20.34.

An amazing 16 chose the moment to experience parkrun for the first time, and a further 37 experienced runners making their first visit to Fountains Abbey. And with some degree of success too. In addition to Ben's first finish, top age grade performances from Bryce Aitken (Fife AC) with a new VM55-59 category record running 18:38 for 85.33% and Carol Baker (Eden Runners) FV50-54 in 21:29 for 82.08%. Great running both of you.

Some milestone runs, with (another) first time visitor Kate Shepherd joining us for her 50th parkrun, and Ripon locals John Bull and Annette Stainthorpe both celebrating their 100th.

And then of course Mo Farah, doubtless inspired by the previous day's events at parkrun all over the UK, had a pretty good run out at The Great North Run on Sunday, breaking the course record. I'm not sure if it was an age grade best though! What I am sure about is that it will have been watched by millions on tv who will themselves have been inspired to give this running malarkey a go. I wonder how many new runners we'll welcome down by the Porters Lodge next week? I can't wait to see!

 

Marvellous Midweek Message

Fountains Abbey “Back to School” Midweek Message

How can it be? Back to school already! Those 6 weeks (7 parkruns) of the summer holidays seem to have passed all too quickly. The return to school may mean either a fraught and stressful week for some of us, or perhaps a return to peace and quiet for others.

Whichever it is for you, we can all look forward to parkrun # 229 this weekend as a chance to let off a little steam or to clear our minds whilst running, jogging, walking, being pushed in a buggy or held at the end of a short hand-held lead around the beautiful Abbey grounds.

For me one of the most inspiring and exciting parts of the whole parkrun thing is the number of juniors, of all school ages, who choose to get up early every Saturday morning, week after week to come down and run the three miles (and a bit) around the route. And without exception, they're all having fun! Kids today, eh?

For those like me whose memories of running whilst a teenager are restricted to the dreaded school cross-country course this is a remarkable change in attitude of children to the idea of running, just for the sake of it.

So, if you happen to be running or walking alongside a junior (and their responsible adult) this weekend, give them a smile or a wave or, if you have the breath left, some words of encouragement. Next time you might not get the chance. They're getting quicker every week. Are you?

 

Fountains Abbey parkrun Event number 228 1st September 2018

A brilliant turnout today, with an above-average 416 runners and a full set of volunteers, so everything ran smoothly. By all accounts, the car park was chocker so thanks to everyone who made it on time; we’re glad that only one late arrival had to be denied access at the gate.  Of course that’s still one too many, as we like everyone to be able to run.

One such traveller was today’s first finisher, Gregan CLARKSON from Hull, who had kindly picked our event for his 200th parkrun. He then stomped around in less than 17 minutes which was impressive to say the least! Even more impressive was the makeshift number ‘2’ which he’d made to cover the ‘1’ on the back of his ‘100 parkruns’ running shirt. Just 50 more to go Gregan, and you can get a new shirt!

Kudos also to Zoe LANGHAM, our other first finisher (20:50 and 29th overall).

It was good to welcome the boys from Ripon City Panthers FC and their coach James today as well. A 5k run is of course excellent cross-training for the footy players, and we hope to see you all again soon.

Congratulations to Donna TUCKER on her 100th parkrun today.

We also had a number of parkrunners embarking on their own parkrun odysseys today, so thanks for turning out, and we really hope you’ll all be back.

See you all next week!

Fountains Abbey parkrun Event number 227 – 25th August 2018

Well done to everyone who set out this morning, we had a good Bank Holiday weekend turnout of 392 runners. Perennial first finisher Reece DALTON strode forth again in an impressive 16:18, with visiting runner Julie MASTERMAN claiming the honours for the females in a PB time of 20:57 (37th overall).  Great running Reece and Julie.

Landmarks were notched up by

Will KNOWLES – 50th parkrun (with a fast PB as well – chapeau Will!)

Toby REDFERN – 10th junior parkrun – PB!

Penny MANOCK – 100th parkrun

It’s fabulous to see the sheer variety of people who turn out to enjoy parkrun on a Saturday morning. From seasoned club athletes, to youngsters starting out, to couch-to-5k adults, parkrun offers everybody something unique. We’re so incredibly lucky to have been able to share in Paul Sinton-Hewitt’s vision, ably assisted by the National Trust, who are always 100% welcoming.

We had one late arrival who had to be turned away, who complained that we’re a ridiculous parkrun as we actually turn away late arrivals. We explain this by the fact that, yes, our rulebook is a little bit larger than for your typical parkrun; it’s the price we pay for being able to run in a World Heritage Site. A fair price, you may ask? Well, we would say so, and so do most of our runners and walkers! This way, we were able to get everyone away at 9 sharp, and everyone safely across the finish line by 9:50, letting us honour our commitment to the Trust and clear the grounds by 10:00, allowing the site to open to the public on time.  We are incredibly grateful to the 99.99% of parkrunners who ‘get’ this and behave accordingly – thank you!!

It was great to welcome Lisa QUINN onto the core team of Run Directors today; Lisa like other RDs before her, has stepped up (despite injury in her case), and joined the core team. As Event Director, having such a great team of RDs reduces the weekly admin burden greatly and keeps things fresh. I want all our RDs to still have the option to run as rank-and-file parkrunners regularly, as that is what prompted us to attend every week in the first place. We have a wonderful core team here at Fountains Abbey, with a massive range of skills, and it’s a pleasure to lead them. I hope it shows every week, we really do love parkrun and all that it offers.

See you all next week (is it September already?!)

Lisa, Graham and Phil (Run Directors)

Fountains Abbey parkrun 226 Run Report

Run Report for Fountains Abbey parkrun 226, 18 August 2018

A little cooler then perhaps we have been used to over the last few weeks, and a swirling breeze around parts of the course, gave Fountains Abbey the first few hints of approaching Autumn early yesterday morning. Volunteers arrived early to set up the course, wearing a few more protective layers, perhaps a sign that we will soon be digging out our warmer running kit.

We welcomed 360 runners yesterday, fully supported by a superb team of volunteers who made the Run Directors’ job easy! We were delighted to welcome another new volunteer, Samantha Hobson, who stepped up to hand out those precious finish tokens. Also to Anna Gisbourne, accompanied by father Michael. Moving to Ripon from Lancaster, they decided that volunteering to be tail-walkers would be a good way to introduce themselves to their new local parkrun. We hope it compared favourably to Lancaster and we look forward to seeing you as regular participants. We’re also delighted to welcome Lisa Quinn as a new Run Director; Lisa is currently shadowing the current team to understand the work that goes on during the week preceding each run, the actions on the day and the IT processes (plus a little bit of human manipulation) required to get a set of results out to all the runners before midday.

We seemed to have an outstanding set of runners all through the field yesterday, with lots of smiles and thanks being passed throughout the course to the marshals. To all the runners, a huge thank you for heeding our request to keep the finish funnel area clear and not to backtrack down the course. It really does help to keep the area clear between the timekeepers and the tokens team, while running back and peeling off at the last moment causes a huge amount of uncertainty for the timekeepers (with approx. 400 runners, we can’t possibly recall all those who have already finished, especially in a clutch of runners), while even worse, crossing the line twice (and getting clicked again as a finisher) causes all the subsequent results to be corrupted.

I was asked yesterday what a ‘Funnel Ducker’ was. Well they are a finisher who ‘ducks’ out of the finishers’ queue before collecting a token, or stays in line but refuses to take a token. However, they have been clicked over the finish line, so they now have a finish place recorded in the stopwatch, but through not taking a token, cause all subsequent times and places to be mismatched. This can have a dramatic effect, especially further down the field where runners may be widely spaced in their finishing time. To look at yesterday’s run for example, one of the finishers on 38:05 would have been awarded a time of 37:46. It might sound good and generate a PB, but we do find most runners like to see accurate times against their names. So please don’t ‘Funnel Duck’.

We still seem to be attracting lots of visitors and tourists to Fountains Abbey. Indeed, 94 ran at Fountains Abbey for the first time, an incredible 26% of the field. It was a pleasure to welcome Adrian Mountford, Exeter’s parkrun Event Director, while we also enjoyed seeing a large and happy contingent from Tingley RunFIT. Meanwhile, I know some of our regulars were out and about, enjoying Dalby Forest and Lanhydrock amongst others.

Some Milestones and Mentions

First over the line for the men was Reece Dalton in 17:04 and for the ladies Emma Sorby in 20:01. Well done to both of you; last time I wrote a run report, I asked you both to please go on holiday and give others a chance. Any chance of going back on holiday?

Ben Linscott and Matilda Harrison both qualified for their 10 parkrun t-shirts, while on the milestones front, David Mawer ran his 200th parkrun (with 184 of those at Fountains Abbey)! Congratulations to all. We do have a glut of runners approaching their 100th, so watch this space and stay tuned to the run briefs!

There were 66 PBs yesterday, a superb number with the conditions, and from some of our regulars with over 50 runs too, so a special well done to Peter Kilford on his 69th run here and Sarah Harford on her 66th.

Important notices concerning the Fountains Abbey parkrun. 

Please do not be offended if we ask you to help us. Many thanks for your co-operation & support in looking after the beautiful environment in which we run each week.

The beautiful play area by the cafe is open from 10am on Saturdays; we politely welcome visitors down to the Abbey for the parkrun and if you’d like to stay and spend more time in the beautiful grounds please just head back through the Visitor Centre once the grounds open to the public [free to NT members].

A polite reminder to all parkrunners that the trees at the start area are not clothes pegs. Please would runners leave their kit on the ground during the run.

Fountains Abbey parkrun takes place before the NT site opens to the public, therefore parkrunners, volunteers & spectators are kindly requested to be through the Visitor Centre gate and down by the Abbey before 9am or you will be denied access. We politely ask that all visitors to Fountains Abbey parkrun help us and our special relationship with the NT by respecting the basis upon which we operate. The gate at the top by the Visitor Centre is now closed at 9am so anyone hoping to get in after this time will be disappointed. The good news is that we look forward to joining you for a coffee in the Visitor Centre café as soon as we possibly can. Thank you for your support in this important matter.

All parkrun visitors must vacate the Abbey grounds before 10am when the NT site opens.

Visitors arriving at Fountains Abbey by bicycle are asked to leave their bikes in the racks at the Visitor Centre please. Bikes are not allowed in the grounds beyond this point.

There are toilets by the Visitor Centre and these are well signposted. There are additional toilets around 50 metres behind the old start line by Fountains Hall. Please use them - no exceptions; we need your fullest support with this. Thank you.

Please stand in the correct place at the start of the run according to your ability. If you are slower than the runners behind you this will cause a bottleneck at the start of the parkrun.  Please mind your feet particularly at the start of the run. No slips and trips please

A reminder about one of the key rules that govern parkrun. For your, our and your children's protection could parents please help us by making sure that any children under 11 are accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Fabbey parkrun report #225

Another stunning day down at the Abbey on Saturday morning as 407 parkrun athletes assembled at the Porters Lodge to make their way around our well manicured 5k course.
Many of us will have been watching the European championships this weekend as a 17 year old from Norway won the men's 5k in 13:17 and a young Lady winning women's 5k in 14:46. We can only marvel at the outstanding times from these athletes and I am sure I am not alone as a parkrunner in wondering how on earth they manage such speed.

Unlike the European Championships everyone who participates is a winner but our first finishers this week were:

Robert Wood for the Gents in 16:53
Myra Jones for the Ladies in 19:52

The top age graded performances were:
Geoffrey Howard with 87.96%
Jane Holmes with 87.92%

A special mention to Dave Binks on finally dipping under the 18min mark to set a new PB and hit the 80% (80.22%) age grade.

This week 407 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 99 were first timers and 69 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 41 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 21 volunteers:

Joanne WALLACE • Fiona ALDER • Douglas Andrew SCOTT • Neil DRING • Phil CHATTERTON • Steve SILVER • Karen MADDISON • Lisa QUINN • Ann COLLIER • Jon HANCOCK • Sara CHATTERTON • Alan COLLIER • Karen TULLEY • Graham LIVESEY • Joy FLETCHER • Graham BOYD • Roger TAYLOR • Lise SEIERSEN • Susan WILLIAMSON • Robert EAMES • Nel TAYLOR

Run Report for Fountains Abbey parkrun #224

On a day of near-perfect batting conditions the teams (totalling 432 players) arrived, if you used a little imagination, in immaculately turned-out whites and not a hint of lycra in sight. The grounds staff had been hard at work and both the Fountains Abbey ground and the Studley Royal ground were looking splendid. Having sorted out the batting order we headed off aiming, like the England cricket team, to make our innings as short as possible. Amongst the visiting team we welcomed the Hinchliff family from North Carolina, Alison Holden-Jones who scored a century, and Wendy and Paul Reddaway, from the Gunpowder parkrun in Essex, who each scored 250 (and kindly brought sweets for us all to help celebrate). Well done too to half-centurion Chloe McCooke. Great effort all round.

Grateful thanks go to each of the wonderful volunteering team of umpires and marshals. Enthusiasm and efficiency was the order of the day. Particular thanks to the always calm Steve Marks for not only Funnel Managing but also processing the results and then helping sort the tokens. (Incidentally token sorting is a role that anyone can do over their coffee after having run. It of course needs doing every week – and it would be great if the burden could be shared... PLEASE sign up on the roster - or just come forward on the day - you'll get a shiny parkrun volunteer credit as well as the undying gratitude of the runners and core team.) Thanks also to Run Director Wendy Marks for setting up the course and also collecting some stray cones and flags at the end of the day.

And what were the results of the match? Well, woman/man of the match awards went as follows: First female home was Ella Towers in 19:47 with a PB to boot, first male home was Reece Dalton in 16:21, and highest age-grading was Jane Holmes with 86.43%. Champagne and silverware to each of them and congratulations to all our runners, especially to those who got a PB. The cricketing omens were clearly good, because despite a batting collapse in both innings England pulled it out of the bag later that morning. "Oh Jimmy, Jimmy" etc. Enjoy the cricket if it's your thing and a foretaste of heaven, ignore it if it's not and more like purgatory – but either way see you again soon at probably the best parkrun in the world.

This week 432 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 102 were first timers and 59 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 61 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 20 volunteers:

Wendy MARKS • Jane CUMMINS • Joanne WALLACE • Tony SHAW • Steve MARKS • Richard HALL • Susie HILL • Douglas Andrew SCOTT • Allan HANSEN • Steve SILVER • Mary HEATH • Gillian CRANE • Christine FIELDHOUSE • Lilla HINCHLIFF • Graham BOYD • Linz MCCOOKE • Kaelin MCCOOKE • Mark OWEN • Richard KNOWLES • Susan WILLIAMSON

Fountains Abbey parkrun midweek message

After a short spell of distinctly non summery weather the forecast is for the sun and warmer temperatures to return this weekend for parkrun day. Whatever the weather it's sure to be a great morning at The Abbey.

We still have quite a few volunteer slots to fill this week (and next week) including at present no one to scan next week and only one person this week. So, if you want a fantastic opportunity to top up your tan while admiring the stunning views of the Abbey as the runners glide by this could be your chance. If you've not volunteered before full support and guidance is given and all roles are suitable for complete beginners to volunteering. Just drop us a line via the link on the website.

We look forward to welcoming you all on Saturday

 

Fountains Abbey parkrun report #223 28th July 2018

Run report for Fountains Abbey parkrun # 223 28th July 2018.

Well, those of us who have been looking forward to rain for the last few heat-soaked weeks certainly got what we asked for on Saturday morning! But the downpour that greeted us as we headed down the hill to the Abbey soon passed and maybe resulted in cooler (perfect running?) conditions than we have been used to of late, and some outstanding performances as a result.

The rain didn't put off the 365 hardy souls who lined up at the start including visiting parties from our friends at Oakwell Running Bears and a coachload of an amazing 25 runners from Bridlington Road Runners (including a new record holder - see below!). We hope you enjoyed the trip despite the weather and look forward to welcoming you back some time soon.

More than a quarter (an astonishing 96) of this week's field were at Fountains Abbey for the first time, and of those, 20 were experiencing parkrun for the very first time. We had predicted earlier in the week that there might be a number of new runners this weekend, but couldn't have imagined so many would brave the weather to begin their journey into the wonderful world of parkrun. We hope to see you back many more times in the future.

Milestones and mentions

Congratulations to first finisher Samuel Roberts from City of Sheffield, visting for the first time, running a fabulous 16.24 for a WAVA age grading of 83.54% (JM15-17) and local Ripon Runner Emma Sorby first lady (and 21st overall) in 20.08 (SW18-19, 74.34%).

Milestones runs by Lewis Brooks (Ripon Runners) and Fountains Abbey parkrun local Mark Hunter (2nd best time ever, just 4 seconds off a pb) both running their 50th parkrun.

Huge thanks to Ripon Runners who adopted this week's event and provided much appreciated cake as well as a crack team of 37 rain-drenched volunteers, including pacemakers right through the field from 36 minutes to 20 minutes, and an additional 23 happy, smiling claret-vested runners. The club adopted runs are always special and we look forward to the next one in the Autumn.

A fabulous 53 pbs resulted and a new WAVA age graded record for Patricia Bielby from Bridlington Road Runners (VW 65-69) of 88.12%, running an amazing 22.43. In fact this week 6 runners achieved age grading over 80%.

Usually we do well to get more than one or two, so great work by the aforementioned Patricia Bielby and Sam Roberts, Shiela Illingworth (VW55-59, 86.76%), Paul Stockburn (VM60-64, 82.50%), Lillian Hayton (VW65-69, 81.52%) and Morag McDowell (VW55-59, 80.44%). Superb running.
