Event #246 (12/01/19)

This week 329 people ran, jogged and walked the course, this was our highest ever attendance, of whom 25 were first timers and 52 recorded new Personal Bests. 37 volunteers made the event possible and they all did a fabulous job, many thanks to you all.

Today Tony Wallace ran his 100th parkrun, Adam Perkins his 50th, Ben Waring his 10th and Helen Pepper managed a double combining her 50th run with her 25th volunteer stint, well done to you all.

This week was also our first pacer week of the year and as 52 of you recorded PBs I am guessing they did a good job!

Thank you again to all of those who have volunteered over the past two weeks, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, you have been amazing. Dan will be your RD next week and he need lots of you to come forward to fill the roster so he isn't feeling stressed on Friday morning!

walkers
It's good to see our walking group growing each week, remember you don't have to run to take part... parkrun is for everyone no matter your ability, walking, running, jogging, skipping and dancing your way around the course are all permitted and welcomed.

That's my Rd stint done for now, as always it's been a blast and I will be back running next Saturday.

Event #245 (05/01/19)

start

318 runners, walkers, joggers and a few dogs took part in yesterday's run. It was a little cold so a massive thank you to the 25 gorgeous volunteers who made sure your event could go ahead. If you haven't volunteered for a while (or ever) get your name down for the coming weeks, all the jobs are easy and it makes you feel great to give something back to the event.
Drop us an email to get your name on the roster. greatnotleyhelpers@parkrun.com
Look how happy volunteering makes Malcolm, and he has now volunteered 201 times!

We had 42 first timers and 29 of you got a new PB, we hope the first timers had a great run or walk and we look forward to seeing you over the coming months.

Just a reminder that under 11s must run within arms reach of their parent, or other adult that parent knows, at all times during parkrun. If you have youngsters that want to run alone they can try a junior event where they can safely do this.

I am going to leave you with a photo of my favourite 'runner' from yesterday's event, if Dexter can do 5k on these little legs anyone can!

dexter

Have a great week and I will see you back in the park on Saturday to do it all again.

Event #244 (1st Jan 2019)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This is a super brief run report stuffed full of numbers and figures - if you love your facts and stats, you'll love this one.

If you're very new to parkrun or you're thinking of coming along click HERE!

Before we plough on with the groovy numbers, Saturday and the next event is just around the corner and YOU need volunteers to allow YOU to put on YOUR event. You see what I did there?

It's really important for you to appreciate that your parkrun event shouldn't be treated like some sort of gymnasium or a race charging for an entrance - parkrun is pretty unique in that it's run by the parkrunners for the parkrunners. So when you hear some of the regular parkrunners, like me, asking for volunteers we really are asking on your behalf.

If you love your parkrun you all need to look after your parkrun.

If you can volunteer and help out drop us an e-mail. If you can't help out this week, why not think about a future date. You'd really be helping your event run smoothly and safely if you did.

We had a total 307 parkrunners (our 4th highest attendance) of which 52 were first timers.

NYD 2018 Start at Great Notley parkrun

There 148 parkrunners at Great Notley who went on to achieve the New Year's Day Double.
114 went on to Chelmsford Central, whilst 35 went on to parkrun at the new Great Dunmow event.

If you wanted to see how these numbers compared with the NYD 2018 parkrun click here.

Some parkrunners decided that the double just wasn't enough and not only did they run at Great Notley but that RAN to Chelmsford Central and then ran there!

Addendum : Charlotte May got in touch to say that Steve May, Rachael Roughan and Dan Hollinshead ran from Great Notley to Great Dunmow too! Dan didn't get scanned so doesn't feature in our formal stats - No Barcode, No Double ;-)

Team Hawkins

A very special thank you to the volunteers for the New Year's Day parkrun. We had a bit of a juggle around with the Run Directors, with Chris Sewell doing the preparation for the event, I did the shouty bit on the bench and then Nic Edwards saw the tail walkers across the line and processed the results. It turned into quite a team effort!

Help your parkrun Help the Country Parks
You can donate to Great Notley parkrun through our About Us page and a small percentage of your donation will also help start up new parkruns. The donation will go to your "home run" and you can check this through your profile's update page. When you buy a car park ticket or a season ticket all profit goes back into the Country Parks, including Great Notley Country Park.
The money is used for things like the upkeep of the paths and even our new permanent sign posts. Essex Country Parks also, generously, offer free car parking to all those parkrunners who volunteer. Ask the Volunteer Co-ordinator on the morning for a parking pass which can be exchanged for exit from the car park.

Welcome to Great Notley

So you've been thinking about getting active and you keep hearing your chums raving about parkrun.

If you've been thinking about coming along but you can't run, or it all sounds a bit too intimidating - then this page has been written just for you.

Q) What do I need to take part?
A) All you need is a printed barcode, and to get one of these you'll need to register. You only need to do this once and once you've got your barcode you can use it every week. If you become a regular (which we'd recommend!) you may want to think about buying a barcode!

Q) It's called parkrun, but I can't run...
A) It really should have been called "parkactive" because you really don't need to run at parkrun.

Q) But I've been advised not to run...
A) No really, you can turn up every Saturday and walk at parkrun. Walking at a parkrun is not some sort of cunning trick to get you running in the future. parkrun as an organisation looks to get everyone active, which isn't necessarily getting everyone running. Have a read of the parkrun Event Charter if you don't believe us ;-)

Q) How fit do I need to be to come to parkrun?
A) There is no minimum fitness level. parkrun is an all inclusive organisation and that includes fitness level. If you do have some concerns about your fitness level we would recommend you have a chat with your GP. Great Notley parkrun is a two lap course so if after the first lap you don't think, for whatever reason, you can continue - then you can drop out.

Q) That's all very well, but I don't want to come in last.
A) Great Notley, like all events has a Tail Walker, so you'll never be last! No matter how fast or slow you go, they'll walk the whole course.

Tail Walker

Q) I've seen the photos! It all looks pretty intimidating!
A) Feeling nervous at your first parkrun is perfectly understandable, so why not just pop along and spectate or come and find us in the cafe afterwards. Have a chat with some of the parkrunners, the marshals and other organisers, we're a friendly bunch! You could come along and marshal (it involves wearing a groovy high-vis and making sure the parkrunners stay on course).

The Great Notley parkrun Family
Yeah there's a few people at Great Notley, but they're the friendliest bunch you'll ever meet!

Q) How much does it cost?
A) It's free! All we ask is that, every once in a while you help out. Great Notley parkrun is organised, run, planned, managed and co-ordinated by volunteers - exactly the same as all of the parkrun's worldwide. If you really, really, really wanted to spend some money you can buy yourself a cool barcode wristband or card from ERS Barcodes and

Volunteers at Great Notley
Helping out at Great Notley keeps the event running smoothly and it's a lot of fun too

Q) How much does it cost to run parkrun event?
parkrun has sponsors, and if you buy any clothing from Contra the profits go back into parkrun, all of this is used to run the systems, store results and send out text's etc. If you wanted to contribute directly to Great Notley's fund, which we use for things like signs, cones, stationery etc. you can donate through our website. A percentage of the money donated is used help start up new parkrun events.

Q) How old do you need to be take part in parkrun?
A) If your son or daughter is under 11yrs old, they will need to run with a responsible adult. If they're between 4yrs and 14yrs old they can run at Great Notley junior parkrun on a Sunday morning on their own!

Under 11's must be accompanied by a responsible adult
Under 11's must be accompanied by a responsible adult (leaping optional!)

Q) I hear that you've got to go up that scary looking hill?
A) It really isn't as bad as it looks! You have to "Touch the Bird" just the once and when you have you're actually over half way! The hill can be a little slippery when muddy, so do take it easy. Whatever you think of the hill, the view from the top is spectacular.

Touch the Bird!
"The Hill" isn't actually as scary as you'd think!

Q) Can I bring my dog along to parkrun?
A) Yes you can! (not advised on the junior parkrun as some children don't like dogs). We allow one dog on a short controlled lead. If you've got a particularly enthusiastic wee furry friend, it might be an idea for you to start at the front!

One dog on a short controlled lead!

Q) I've done a couple of parkruns and I've had a lot of fun - but I want more!
A) ...and you'll not be alone! There are lots of excellent running clubs and groups that support parkrunners from Great Notley. They're all slightly different, they're all friendly, have a chat with them and see which one suits you best, here's just a few of them...
- Michelle's Running Group
- Witham Running Club
- Braintree and District Athletic Club
- Halstead Road Runners
- Grange Farm and Dunmow Runners
- Springfield Striders

Q) I want to volunteer but I've never done it before!
A) Volunteering at Great Notley is really easy and all of the roles can be trained on the morning in a matter of minutes.

All of the roles are designed to be carried out by parkrunners, so they're all pretty straightforward. Most of the roles will have a lanyard too so if you did miss anything in the training, it's all written down on the lanyard too. You can put your name down several weeks in advance to help out and you can look on our website to see what roles are available.

Marshalling at Great Notley

Q) Is there anywhere cheaper to park?
A) We will always advise you to park at Great Notley Country Park as parking elsewhere can cause issues for the local residents. You can get free parking if you volunteer and you don't necessarily need to give up your run/walking your parkrun if you help out. If you were to help set up or pack away, for instance, but these roles go quickly!

Hopefully that's help answer most of your questions, if you still wanted to ask any questions please feel free to drop us an e-mail or you can post a query to through our various social media channels and your fellow parkrunners may have the answer!

Event #242 (25th Dec 2018) – Christmas Day

Thanks to RD Dan for stepping forward and run directing on the day I was able to run at Great Notley for the first time! I only took two photos on Christmas Day, with the frost on the ground and the parkrunners stretching off into the distance, how could I not take this pic...
Christmas Day parkrun from the Hill

...the other pic was of Larry sat in a box.

146 parkrunners ran, walked and jogged our Winter Route which - similar to the Christmas Jumper Event - a steady increase on previous events...

Event Date parkrunners
188 25/12/2017 125
134 25/12/2016 102
79 25/12/2015 71

The frosty conditions meant that the surface was frozen and hard, considerably nicer to run on than the Christmas which may explain the higher percentage of personal bests (16) - or maybe everyone was just bursting full of Christmas spirit and that gave you all a huge boost!

I love the Christmas Day event, it feels very local, very community - with the only tourists typically being visiting families in need of their Christmas Day parkrun.

Families on Christmas Day

A huge thank you to all of the volunteers on Christmas Day, with minimal signage you're all even more critical on the day - and with no reports of our 13 first timers running down the A131 - we can only assume nobody got (very) lost!.

A special shout out to Tony Perkins and The May Family who have helped run your event on Christmas Day since 2015.

Your volunteers on the day were...

Christopher SEWELL • Len MARTEN • Daniel WARDEN • Sarah FROST • Chris HOPKINSON • Victoria GRICE • Vanessa SANTOMAURO • Debbie CASEY • Anthony PERKINS • David HOWARD • Jerry THOMPSON • Charlotte MAY • Simon EDNEY • Martha MAY • Mollie REASON • Annabel MARRIOTT • Alan PEAREY • Edward LEGGETT • Oliver LEGGETT • Samuel MAY • Colin MARTEN • Amr ZIKO

Why not consider for 2019 to help out your parkrun? It's a lot of fun and not scary at all (except for when you've got to stand on an icy picnic bench - that's pretty scary)

Many thanks for everyone that made the Christmas Day parkrun especially groovy.
