Harrogate parkrun #353 run report

We'll we thought it was going to be a slightly cold and damp start for this weeks parkrun so it was out with the jackets, gloves and hats and off to the Stray.

Thanks to all of this weeks amazing volunteers setup was a breeze (definitely no RD forgetting, nope, nothing to see here) ...a special mention this week goes out to the recently retired Stephen James FAIRWEATHER joins the 25 volunteer club, brilliant.

On to the run and of the 355 who ran, jogged and walked the course 61 got PB's well done all.

A cooler start to the weekend meant great running conditions on the Stay this week as 386 of you walked jogged or ran around your three laps of the Stray.

All supported by our crack team of awesome volunteers who made the parkrun magic happen.

One of whom was Super Sam Fugill on pacing.  Sam was pacing 25 minutes and came in to the second at 25 minutes, absolutely amazing considering Sam had his watch set on cycling mode and really didn't have a clue what pace he was doing !

Huge congrats and shiny new 100 tee shirts go out to Andrew WOODHALL,  Matthew RICKARD and Lynn DAVISON. George PRENTIS joined the 50 club and Ben QUINE gets into the junior 10 club well done all.

Harrogate parkrun #350 run report

Another cracking morning on the Stray with an array of neon and smiles. Loved the integrity of our late starters who jumped in and made sure they completed the full distance.

Four hundred and fifty three people ran, jogged and walked... 49 for the first time... 87 got a wriggle on and bagged themselves a well deserved PB. Would you believe that there were 24 different running clubs represented? Can you name them all without looking at the results?

We were looked after by 30 wonderful volunteers this morning... well, you can never have too many. Huge thanks to:

Tony LEDWABA-CHAPMAN • Sean BRENNAN • Jane EVANS • Tracy Louise ILES • Andrew HARRIS • Lorna ELEY • Adam ATKINSON • William ELEY • Jeremy SCOTT • Joe HALLAS • Freddie PALFREMAN • Caroline RAINBOW - GARDENER • Sarah HUGHAN • Andrea PRICE • Mark GIBSON • Sam FUGILL • Jane ROBBINS • Iain MANWARING • Martin THORNTON • Lynsey BARRACLOUGH • Linda DODSWORTH • Steve DODSWORTH • Jeff WALKER • Dan YOUNG • Elizabeth JACKSON • James SHARRATT • Mark WRIGHTSON • Debbie JARVIS • Paul ANDREW • Patricia ANDREW

Today also saw Mark Gibson join the Volunteer 25 Club, Leila Barclay the Junior 10 Club, Ian Carnazza, Kate Rosie, Liam Escott and Richard Stangroom join the 50 Club and Joshua Goldsbrough join the 100 Club. Super-duper commitment folks!

Full results can be found here: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harrogate/results/latestresults/

You might notice a slight difference with your position / time... particularly further down the field. Looks like we once again had a funnel ducker which messed the results up for people. It really is quite simple. If you go past the timers, stay in the funnel, take a token... Simples. If you spot someone ducking out of the funnel... please encourage them back in... if they don't respond (selfish shellfish), please let the token volunteers, funnel manager or run director know. We work hard to get your results right every week... help us help you.

That's about it for this week. Just a quick shout out for the Knaresborough Striders 5 mile multi terrain Crag Rat Run which takes place next Sunday 23rd at Knaresborough Cricket Club... You can find further details here: https://racebest.com/races/t6hsv

Have an amazing week and we look forward to seeing you next Saturday. Same time. Same place.

 

 

Countdown to Harrogate parkrun #350

It's almost Harrogate parkrun #350! That's over 12,900 parkrunners, 100,000 runs and 500,000 kms... Remember when hitting #250 was a huge milestone and now that's a 100 parkruns ago. Phew. The good news is that despite these very large numbers... you only need to remember three things... Barcode. Nine. Bench. See you soon.
