Guernsey parkrun Event #128 -6 October 2018

Untitled
Early hopes of escaping without the arrival of the forecast rain were soon dashed when spots started soon after the runners set off. We escaped the worst of it however and with next to no wind it was actually a good day to stretch the legs. The runners also had their free tea, coffee or juice to look forward to in The Beach House Cafe, always a nice bonus!

This week 129 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 27 were first timers and 18 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 16 volunteers (see below) and I would like to thank the team for a great job well done today. A particular warm welcome to the high-viz heroes team goes to new volunteers Paul Williams and Francis Snoding who were both marshaling today.

Paul J WILLIAMS • Lorna O'DONNELL • Julie LAWLOR • Anthony O'DONNELL • Dave WATSON • Mollie WATSON • Diane BOOTH • Alex ALLAN • Caroline MAUGER • Angela WATERS • Kevin TRUMP • Peter BECKERLEG • Destiny HOLLYER-HILL • Francis SNODING • Michelle TORODE • Lynne WOOD

As always, please do keep an eye on the roster (http://www.parkrun.org.uk/guernsey/futureroster) to check availability and see whether you could help out one week. All regular runners are expected to volunteer a few times each year and if this actually happened we would not need to put out so many email appeals for last minute volunteers. Volunteering is good fun and the team always enjoy the event so please do give it a go!

Back to the run and first finishers today were Charlie Thompson and Abbie Swain, Abbie running a new PB, and taking a significant chunk of time off her previous best. Congratulations to you both.

Second through the finish funnel was visitor Pete Hopley from Preston. Daniel Waas from Woodhouse Moor near Leeds was running his 237th parkrun with us and Amanda Neethling joined us from Rondebosch Common parkrun near Cape Town!

This group of friends from Exeter Riverside were doing a bit of parkrun tourism with us today and we congratulate Rosie Glazier who celebrated her 50th milestone run with us. Well done Rosie!

And talking about milestones, the race is on for whoever is going to be Guernsey’s first runner to reach the big 100 parkrun milestone, with Terry Greening running number 99 with us today. Terry is now off to Hong Kong to visit family, no parkrun there as yet Terry, which leaves the door open for Peter McGovern who is on 98!

See you all next week when Martin Dean will be looking after you all. For the current state of play on the volunteer roster for the coming weeks, see below.

Well done to the 167 participants who took part in Guernsey parkrun this week. I must give a special mention to first finisher Ryan McCrickerd who had his eye on the course record and came close with a time of 17:00. It was wonderful to see another group of New Wave runners today and we hope to see them again soon. We were also joined by the very colourful Alun Williams in his fabulous rainbow suit, in support of Guernsey Pride. We sadly lost tokens 61 and 154; if you have either of those we would appreciate having them back, so please get in touch.

Guernsey parkrun Event #123 -1 September 2018

Well Guernsey parkrun no. 123 proved to be a busy old morning, 184 participants took to the course which included a mixture of first timers and visitors, 39 in total, fantastic!

Well done to first finishers Nick Copperwaite who also got a new PB and Alice Loveridge who came in as first lady on her first run with us. A big well done also to Josh Langmead, who reached his 25th volunteering credit this week.

It was great to see another group of New Waves ladies taking to the course and the morning was cheered up with the arrival of Alun Williams and his box of rainbow laces which were given out in support of the Rainbow Laces Campaign for Guernsey Pride, you'd better bring a bigger box next week Alun!

This week we had many visitors who once again left us some lovely comments in our visitor book. Just some of the places they had traveled from were Huddersfield, Bath, Jersey, Wythenshawe near Manchester and St Albans including the Clarke family, with Dad Scott and son Samuel kindly sorting the finish tokens for us as well, thanks guys! Another visitor who came straight off the boat and jumped into a taxi to get to us was Justin Kirkham from Conkers parkrun who sadly had forgotten his barcode, sorry Justin you know the rules but glad you enjoyed the course and running by the sea.

One shout out please, finisher number 63 left with their token please get in touch with us if you have it and arrange to return it, thank you.

Thank you to all our volunteers and participants, look forward to seeing you all next week"

We had less sunshine this week and cooler temperatures, but this didn’t discourage 160 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests.

This week, Guernsey parkrun welcomed visitors from St Andrews, Cambridge and Brighton and we also welcomed back our parkrun ambassador from Osterley parkrun, Geoff Miles who has been visiting the island this week.

The female course record was broken by two minutes this week, by Louise Perrio at her first visit to Guernsey parkrun. This was also the first time we have had a female first finisher, so double congratulations Louise. Louise was closely followed by Taylor Huxster who also recorded a new PB.

As always my thanks to our volunteers this week, we really can’t run parkrun every week without you.
