Countdown to Harrogate parkrun #338

Nearly everything's in place for a fabulous parkrun tomorrow. We've got the weather. We've a roster full of cheery volunteers. We've got all the kit sorted, charged, counted, checked.

All we need now to make it complete..... is you. And all you need is enthusiasm, energy and your barcode.

So see you in the morning and in the meantime have a lovely evening.

 

 

Fabulous midweek message

Aren't you just loving these extra long evenings building up to the longest day tomorrow? Isn't it great to be able to get out running 'til late and to enjoy all the amazing scenery and wildlife around us and the absolutely glorious sunsets.

So never mind all that football stuff and all those other things which seem important but really can wait til later - make sure you get out there and savour the extra hours of daylight and, dare we mention it, the actually-quite-nice weather.

And if life gets in the way of any other running this week then at least make it a priority to join us on Saturday.... for the first parkrun of summer.

It was a mildly moist start to the weekend but we weren't going to let that dampen our spirits, oh no. The brolly was packed and it was off to the Stray to get set up. After a quick measure of the course ans moving a few rouge  branches that had been blown off the trees the night before we were all set.

As always a huge thank you to all of this weeks volunteers who were just amazing.

After a quick briefing and the shout out's it was on to the run. The drizzle stopped just in time so it was a dry and warm three laps of the Stray for 410 happy Harrogatonians (well a few less as we had plenty of lovely visitors).

We had lots of milestone runners this week too so congratulations to Meg CHILVERS who joins the junior 10 Club, Nigel SCAIFE clocked up his 50th and Andrew PEAGRAM, Jonathan SPRUCE, Matthew LAVERACK, Philip HARVEY, Rob HEMSON & Simon DALTON all ran their 100th parkruns fantastic commitment all of you.

As ever a huge thank you to all of this weeks amazing volunteers for making it all happen.

Outside of parkrun it was a super busy weekend of madcap sporting activities for Harrogate parkrunners. Massive congratulations to all of the Bed-racers and bed race volunteers it always seems that the Castle Grounds are like a parkrun day out on bed race day. Sunday saw a fair few of you doing the ITU Triathlon in Leeds to round off an amazing weekend.

And that's nearly it but we couldn't sign off without an update on Simon William's antics in South Africa. That's right you all wished him luck and it seems to have worked. We think the phrase is "smashed it !" Simon finished the Comrades Marathon (yes all 90km of it - that's 18 parkruns) in 9hrs 17mins 58...take a bow Simon.

And that's your lot.

Harrogate parkrun #335 run report

If you went under the big tree before corner 2... straight past the ghost train... kept the emoji stall where everyone wins on your left... down past the whirligigs... jumped the blue electric cable... turned right when you got to James... waded through the long grass jungle and headed back onto the normal course when you reached Oatlands! ... And you did it twice more...

Then it can only mean one thing, you probably ran jogged walked at Harrogate parkrun #335 in the warm but wet first parkrun of June.

We all got soaked, the kit got soaked (sorry next volunteers), the tokens got soakened... but did we care? Not a drop... No ones enthusiasm was dampened! 441 parkrunners had a marvellous morning completing the course and all crossed the finish line looking resplendent in all their athletic glory. Honestly... you did... all of you.

Andrew Dobby and Sharon Hardcastle finished first, Isabel Conkleton ran her very first parkrun pipping her dad at the post, Richard ran all the way from the Gold Coast, Luke Warburton completed his 10th and Jo Wiliams, Elizabeth Watson and Rach Ibi smashed their 50ths.

Just wonderful to watch... All topped off with a mad hunt for the missing 3rd scanner... which wasn't missing at all, just sheltering in the big blue bag... and a hot Italian coffee courtesy of the gorgeous folks at Caffe Marconi. That there, is what Saturday's were made for.

Next week we'll be celebrating the fabulous NHS's 70th birthday... which is kinda handy given the large number of parkrunners taking part in the Great Knaresborough Bed Race... come down and join us. Same time. Same place. Don't forget your barcode.
