And that's your lot. 

Just a few reminders:

Post run refreshments - Join us at Caffe Marconi (2 Princes Square) each week after parkrun to catch up, process the results, have a coffee and a good old chat. The food and drinks are great and Sarah and her team are huge fans of parkrun! It's good fun and you can even get your result early!

In Case of Emergency - Please double check that your emergency contact details are complete and up to date on your parkrun profile. You'll find a link to your profile on your weekly results email and newsletters or via this How can I access my profile / account? link. It only takes a few moments, put could really help us to help you if and when you most need it.

Barcodes - Is your printed barcode looking tired or not scanning easily? There are a range of tough and durable plastic parkrun barcode ID tags and parkrun wristbands 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.

Volunteering - We do ask that each of you, if possible, volunteer 3 times over the year. It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday. Harrogate is no exception and without your kindness we would not be able to put on this wonderful free event. If you would like to help out please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harrogate/volunteer/ for more information or talk to anyone in a yellow vest on parkrun day and then email us at harrogatehelpers@parkrun.com to get involved.

Mid week message (and its just in time)

Ice Ice Baby

No we're not going all 1990's Gangster Rap. It's ICE as in In Case of Emergency

Hopefully you will never ever need it but just in case please make sure your ICE (in case of emergency) details are recorded and up to date on the parkrun system. If there are any changes, please reprint your barcode and the ICE number will be shown on your newly printed barcode.  

If nothing else if you drop your bacode you'll probably get it back and it could be vital in saving time in the event of a real emergency.

Just open your last results email and follow the pics below to update your ICE, simples...

Have a fabulous week and well see you all on Saturday

Harrogate parkrun #316 Run report

26195724_1573650369370652_7809664741733129894_n  Harrogate parkrun No. 316, a day of many great things. The day began with a fresh faced Dan VENTRESS pulling on the Run Directors Hi Viz for the first time. Dan at 15 years old is one of the youngest Run Director to have looked after Harrogate parkrun and was doing it on the day of his 50th 

 26169840_10156215654218109_6594815384809306934_n

It was cold and damp as the many volunteers arrived each donning their Hi Viz then starting to put the course together but this was not to be any ordinary Harrogate parkrun, today it would be in reverse with a start by the toilets and a new style finish!

We often have to alter the course during the winter to avoid causing undue wear to the grass and crucially to avoid the crocus beds. We would ask all runners to please pay particular attention to the red flags each week and ensure you run around them and as close to the marked course as possible (and please don't take offence if fellow runners shout you to stick to the marked route ;-) )

After a brief introduction Dan took his place on the famous podium (better known as the park bench) and delivered a perfect briefing covering all the points and safety factors like he had been born to it.

The run included quite a bit of mud and water but then again it is January in Harrogate so what else would we expect.

First male back was Andrew DOBBY in 17:38 and first female Lisa Maria MAWER in 21:11. There were a wonderful 17 first time parkrunners who we trust will all be back to play in the Harrogate mud again very soon. There were a total of 331 finishers looked after and cheered home by 31 wonderful volunteers. Of the 331 runners 22 managed new personal bests in what we're very difficult conditions.

We had some very special runners with Justin LOCK running his 50th parkrun, Andy DEIGHTON and Andrew HARRIS running their 100th parkruns. Well done to each of you for a brilliant milestone. I think it only right that we finish with two ends of the spectrum by once again giving a shout out to Dan VENTRESS on his 1st Run Directing and finally to mention something very special Alexandra WHAPPLES completed her 250th parkrun which goes beyond brilliant. Congratulations Alexandrea on an absolutely awesome achievement.

See you all next week. Cheers Jeff (Jeff Walker)

Harrogate parkrun #314 & #315 Bumper Christmas Special run report

Not one but 2 events this week, that combined with a huge amount of food to be eaten, presents to give and parties to attend has meant a later than normal run report.

We started off with Saturdays parkrun and Caroline was at the helm in her Santa outfit.

20171223_085943

Some say Caroline just wanted to time her 100th parkrun for Christmas day but one thing is for certain she was Fabulous as RD on Saturday along with all of the wonderful volunteers. As for the run it was a tough one for most with an extra wiggle around the trees to avoid the crocus beds and a strong headwind. That combined with a bit too much Friday night partying for some of us ;-) 20171223_090522

Anyway after the run it was a great atmosphere in Cafe Marconi as lots of us avoided the inevitable Christmas shopping trip, I mean had coffee and processed the results. 

So on to my favorite parkrun of the year, yes Christmas Day parkrun which for many families in Harrogate is becoming a nit of a tradition. It really is fantastic to be able to see all of your parkrun family on Christmas morning and luckily for me I also got to run thanks to Simon who took on the walkie talkie and RD Hi-Viz for a bit. 

We were lucky to get a visit from the Big Man himself as he'd completed his overnight deliveries so he came along to hand out tokens and to join all the other wonderful Christmas Day Volunteers. 25659864_10155287498127865_116801448741144943_n

It was a busy week in run clubland with Jamie LOWE clocking up his junior 10 Tee, Jim MAWER, Kirsty O'DONNELL, Mark WILSON & Rob WALTERS have all clocked up 50 runs. Finally we had Anthony EVERITT, Caroline RAINBOW - GARDENER, Ian FOY & Mark WOOD have all done their 100th run (oh and Caroline had a special Birthday, Happy 21st again Caroline !)

And that's it for this week,

Hope you all had a magical Christmas and Happy parkrunning.

Ted
