8th September 2018 ~ Event #203

A slightly drizzly, damp day for this weeks parkrun but that didn't dampen the spirits of 233 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this week.

We were joined by 29 first timers and 64 of you recorded new Personal Bests.... WOW! Is that thanks to the army of volunteers from Harlow Running Club pacing this week I wonder - I think it most certainly helped.

Was lovely to hear the PB triangle being rung so much this week.

Talking of Harlow Running Club - they supplied a majority of our 37 volunteers this weekend - without volunteers, parkrun does not happen so a massive thank you to all of you.

Wasn't it lovely to see Roy running only his 12th ever parkrun and his 10th at Harlow. He is always there cheering us on at Roys Corner and I am really pleased to see so many of you giving him some shouts of encouragement this week.

Congratulations to Derek Jenner on joining the 50 club

If you know you are running your 10th (for juniors only), 50th, 100th, 250th parkrun, or even your 25th volunteering stint, please do let us know so we can give you the shout out you deserve. Providing cake to celebrate is not compulsory but very nice!

A massive thanks again to all who sponsored my mum for Braving the Shave at parkrun last week - she is still collecting money but once she has collected everything promised, she will have raised in excess of £600.

Next week, We are being "TAKEN OVER" by Harlow Running Club. It still means you have your run, but the majority of the volunteers are from the running club, and they are also providing at least 12 Pacers......which means it will be a great opportunity for you to aim towards a PB , or to pick up some tips from the "experts"

18th August, 2018 – Event #200

Hel-loooo Harlow parkrunners,

Welcome to run report # 200. Hoo-raaaaaay!!

As the saying goes, "Time flies when your having fun!" and as we have all realized,    it's no different at parkrun!! For those of you who have been with us from launch day,  it just doesn't seem that long ago that the shout went up, "Go".

Yet here we are, nearly 4000 participants have run our course.

Almost 29,000 parkruns have been completed.

In the amount of time Harlow parkrun has been with us, practically 6,000 Personal Bests have been earned.

And the distance, phew. The total distance completed by all finishers adds up to 144,535 kilometres. That, in old fashion money, comes close to 90,000 miles!!        That's getting on to 4 times around the equator. Wow-wah!!

I am sure you will agree, that the concept has worked very well in our community.     Lots of participants enjoy the  event's healthy aspect. Others can't wait to see  friends that they only get to see on parkrunday, to have a catch-up(in more ways then one)! Some of our regulars aren't interested in the running side of the event, but are oh so willing to get involved with one of the volunteering roles. Lets face it.. Without this group of interchanging individuals, we would never have got off the mark and we certainly wouldn't still be functioning 200 parkruns later.

A massive thank-you to all who have given up their time to keep your/our parkrun event as popular as ever, for the benefit of the whole community.                                     Please can you make sure you volunteer three times in a year, pleaseeee.

Our 200th event was timed nicely for  a surprise visit from one of our country's National Lottery funded athletes. Fiona Pennie who is a K1 Canoe Slalom competitor, came to be involved(specifically to be joint tail walker) keeping our Denise Gigg company. After I went through the long list of honours that Fiona has accumulated over the years, she  received a very long, warm and deserving round of applause from all who were present. Very nice to have met you Denice and keep flying the #teamparkrun and UK Sport flag flying high for all of us to see.

There were a couple of milestones this week.                                                             Craig Segal celebrated finishing his 50th parkrun by bagging himself a P.B.!!          David Ivory completed his 100th parkrun.                                                             Everyone enjoyed the cakes and slices on offer at the end of the run, as part of the celebrations.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Harlow parkrun Results Page.

11th August 2018 – Event #199

Hello all!!

Well another Saturday is over which means we have completed event 199....some of us in a most unusual fashion!!

38454901_1731370663585335_2193670377681453056_n

This week 187 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

TThe event was made possible by 25 volunteers:

Hazel KURZ • Robin Peter LOZEAU • Bobby DRAPER • Roy STEVEN • John GILLESPIE • Jenny HOLLAND • Alan WELLBELOVE • Liam WALDRON • Sara COOMBE • Andrew BELLWORTHY • Steve COWLIN • Carmen BYFIELD • Allison BEETON • Chris MCCARTHY • John MCCARTHY • Denise GIGG • Glen WILSON • Tom FREEMAN • Tracie COOK • Peter WOOTTON • Karen KEMPSON • Brenda FREEMAN • Matthew AUSTIN • Michael SCHMITT • Graham SPARREY

The roster proved difficult to fill this week and I have to admit, I wondered if we would be holding an untimed event as we just didn't have enough volunteers. Fortunately, a last minute plea from Lee made all the difference and we were able to fill the roles. As I said in the run briefing before we started, our regular volunteers deserve a break and this is when we rely on others to step in and give us a hand. It really is a most rewarding experience, encouraging everyone around the course, so please, please do consider popping your name down over the next couple of weeks. Please let us know if you can help by emailing harlowhelpers@parkrun.com and we will add you to the roster.  

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Harlow parkrun Results Page.

If you have a Milestone, or a birthday you'd like to have mentioned during our Run Brief, please contact us via email, or by Facebook and we will give a shout out to you!!

Next week we will be celebrating our 200th event, and in recognition of the fact that Parkrun is a worldwide event, we have chosen a "Countries of the World" theme. So feel free to choose a country and wear something associated with that country. Kilts, Irish hats, St George's flags, Mexican sombreros, French berets etc....

We are also going to be joined by Olympic athlete, Fiona Pennie, a slalom canoeist. Fiona will join our tailwalker as part of a Parkrun initiative #teamparkrun so let's all make Fiona welcome and show her what a great event we have! I am sure there will be cake and sweets to enjoy.

Robin has the Carnival preparations in full swing and will shortly be in touch with those of you that have volunteered to confirm arrangements . If you would like to get involved, there is still time.The Harlow Carnival takes place on Sunday August 26th, starting at Bush Fair and finishing at the Town Park. We just want to show what a lovely bunch we are at parkrun, so newcomers of all abilities will feel welcome. Leave a message on Facebook, or email us if you can help out .

Robin is your Run Director next week, so until then, have a super week and we will see you at event 200 :-)

August 4th 2018 – Event #198

Hello parkrun family!!!

I hope you enjoyed your run on Saturday. It was a great sight to see you all disappearing off into the distance up the cycle track.....and even better seeing you all returning back again with the familiar Pained expressions, slowly turning to smiles from the  sense of achievement (or relief!!)

This week 210 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 28 were first timers and 36 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers:

Vicky CALVER • Roy STEVEN • John GILLESPIE • Steve WRIGHT • Liam WALDRON • Miguel LUQUE • Ryan SMITH • Jillian CHENG • Allison BEETON • Lee WEBBER • Michael ROBEY • Tegan WEBBER • Kevin SMITH • Robin DEFOE • Tom FREEMAN • Natalie TAYLOR • Agnieszka GUSZPIT • Brenda FREEMAN • Matthew AUSTIN • Michael SCHMITT • Tom RUSZKOWSKI • Louise PEACOCK • Samantha BATT

If you have a Milestone, or a birthday you'd like to have mentioned during our Run Brief, please contact us via email, or by Facebook , and we will give a shout out to you!!

Please remember to drink plenty of fluids in this hot weather (water based i mean!)....hydrate throughout the whole week.....not just the morning before the run!!!!

Remember , think very carefully about whether to bring your dog to parkrun during this hot weather too. We enjoy seeing them there, but the heat does get too much for them, so it would be best to leave them at home until the cooler days.

 

Robin would still like some more people to join him for The Harlow Carnival on  Sunday August 26th. It starts at Bush Fair, and finishes at the Town Park. We just want to show what a great range of people we have at parkrun, so any newcomers will feel we are a really friendly bunch, and we cater for all different abilities.

Leave a Message on Facebook, or email us if you can help out .

 

 

Hope you all have a great week, Tracie will be your Run Director Saturday. See you after my holiday!
