Run Report Number 5

Run Report 24/10/15

Hello, this is Rosie Ibberson. I am writing the run report for the 5th Glossop parkrun.

Saturday was a great day for the 36 runners receiving PB’s. Also we are very happy to have the 39 new runners. Unfortunately it wasn’t the best weather with rain beginning to fall near the end of the parkrun. I wonder whether the rain encouraged lots of people to run faster or not.

The first male finisher was Keith Littlewood and the first female finisher was Kerrie Wood-Doyle and for both it was only their first time!

I myself doing the parkrun the previous week understand how hard a 5km parkrun can be. All the hills around the course don’t really help, but if you pace yourself properly it can be made easier.

The first junior to finish was Emma Chrystie-Lowe, for whom it was her first time at Glossop. There were representatives of over ten different running clubs.

From the 26th of September when the first Glossop parkrun was held it has been graced by 381 different runners, members from 45 different clubs, 620 runs covering a total of 3,100km and there have been 152 new personal bests. This a great achievement for only 5 weeks!

I would like to remind you of the parkrun on the 31st October, to help make this parkrun ‘more’ interesting we would appreciate it you could come in fancy dress for Halloween. If you would also like to bring something to hang around the park, it would be welcomed.


Thanks to Rosie for a great report. Just a quick word to let everyone know about the fairly serious incident that happened on Saturday. A runner fell and banged her back on the short descent out of the walled garden onto the riverbank. The marshals were all brilliant, and ensured that the runner was looked after and the ambulance got to her as soon as possible. She was in a lot of pain, but fortunately there were no broken bones. We will review all aspects of what happened, and make any changes deemed necessary.


Run Report #4

Hello, Freya your run reporter here, for week four. Me being a junior myself I decided to base most of this on the under 18s:

We had a six new juniors; Jacob Cook, Jonathon Whitehead, James Given, Adam Crompton, Rosie Ibberson and Ewan Hall Green. Congratulations to the first three male juniors Reuben Hewitt , Jacob Cook and Jonathon Whitehead and Niamh Boyle, Harriet Williams, and Rosie Ibberson were the first three female juniors.

In the grown-up world, there was some outstanding running from the first and close second, runners James Young and Anthony Aimon was also there first time running Glossop parkrun! Bethany Hirst and Jenny Rouse were the first women runners home.

Congratulations to the park runners that that have run all 4 Glossop parkruns so far (we think 10). Well-done to the fifty runners that completed the Glossop parkrun for the first time, and 35 who posted new personal best times.

Of course parkrun would not be parkrun without the lovely kind volunteers so thank you to the marshals and scanners and time keepers and anyone else that gave up there time to make this a nice friendly parkrun, a very special thank you to the team of run directors who has started up this parkrun.

I would like to let everyone know that anyone can volunteer all you need to do is let the team know by email ( Volunteering is an incredibly easy and fun job to do: you can marshal, scan barcodes and even write this report (and many more).

I'm really looking forward to seeing you all dressed up for the Halloween run on the 31st. If you want you can bring something to help decorate the course too, and leave it for the Friends of Manor Park Spooky Day in the park.

Thank you for reading my run report please. If you had any problems with it come and tell me on Saturday many thanks Freya Ellingworth-Grundy.`
