Harrogate parkrun #362 run report

Untitled

Well we promised you a dream team of volunteers and a blue sky and shades kind of morning and we always try to deliver.

So whilst the parkrun weather fairy delivered on the sunshine she really was outdone by the parkrun weather troll who was huffing and puffing and trying to blow this buggy runner (and everyone else) off the Stray.

Huge thanks as ever to all of this weeks wonderful volunteers. A special shout out to Mark who did a fabulous job in his first RD stint, awesome work.

In other awesomeness we had this weeks milesoners. We had three new 25 Volunteer club memebrs in Emma BRAUNTON, Katie RIGBY and Philip CARLING, amazing !

Molly HUGHES & Oliver GIDDINGS  ran their 10th parkruns getting them both into the junior 10 club. we had no new 100 clubber but Garry HOLDSWORTH, James MORGAN and James TUCKNOTT have all entered the 50 club and finally the amazing Caleb AYLESBURY clocked up his 250th parkrun Brilliant running Caleb.  

That's it for now.

Mid week parkrun message

Hey folks, hope the weeks going well!?

This weekend already looks to be a 'cracker'... well, its nearly Christmas :D

We have a fantastic team of volunteers and then we have you, the beautifully placed ready to run, runners and walkers.

Who's bringing the tinsel to the stray? Santa hats welcomed, all are welcome. Festive dress, Lycra clad elegance or like me, the faithful baggy T-shirt.

Bring on the Christmas December run fun. See you there!

 

Run report Harrogate #361

Welcome to a very damp and soggy Harrogate parkrun #361 run report.

Yep it was a soggy initiation for Mark Taylor in his first session as run director and along with his amazing team of volunteers we think he did a splendid job.

Despite the weather (did we mention it was damp ?) everything was ready and organised for your 9am start.

Out on the course Richard HANEN was flying the flag (o.k Balloon) for the mile stoners hitting his 250th parkrun. 

Untitled

Other mil stoners were John KIRKHAM doing his 100th and Caroline YATES, , Catherine DOBSON, Geoff KING, Josh SHAW, Mark SHELTON, Tom SUTTILL all ran their 50th parkruns. Here is Mark celebrating with his Striders teammates.

We had one new junior 10 club member this week too Martha STONER. Congratulations all of you. Hope you have all dried out (did we mention it was wet ?)  and are able to order your milestone tee shirts soon. 

With the winter weather setting in it is getting noticeably slippy underfoot on parts of the Stray (i'm sure we've mentioned it was moist). Please remember its just a run in the park and when its wet and slippy slow down on the corners or you may well find yourself covered in mud. It would also really help the event team if you pay attention to the marked course each week (yep we do move it around to protect the Stray).

W'ell end this weeks report with Team Richard enjoying the weather .....

Is it too late for midweek? Nevermind :D

Hey folks, Thursday is the new Wednesday right? Never mind, it means parkrun is even closer. Woo hoo :D:D:D We have lots of mile stone hopefuls and a new run director joining us this weekend. Who are these fabulous people? Come along and find out :D

We have just filled the last important marshal role, giving us a lovely healthy roster for the weekend. Volunteers, you are the heartbeat of our Saturday mornings.

News in from one of our tail walkers who ran round the stray this morning... "its a bit soggy". Typical November Stray running then :D. Who loves a bit of mud? MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! With that in mind, a bit grip on the trainers might be helpful.

See you there :D #DFBC

 

Harrogate parkrun #360 run report

After bit of an alarm clock fail it was up to rather grey looking Stray to get everything set up. Fortunately we had lots of help getting the course measured and set.

It was great to get the chance to catch up with lots of the of the SRG runners (Social Run Group- who meet at Up and Running in town on a Monday night for a free social run if you fancy joining them)

Untitled

As always its a huge thank you to this weeks volunteers who were simply brilliant.

 

Untitled

On to the running and it was a little slippery underfoot as demonstrated here by our first finisher (yes he wasn't going to let a fall on lap two slow him at all.

Untitled

Fortunately no damage was done save a dirty vest. As we head into winter please do slow down and remember its just a run in the park and not worth damaging yourself for, conditions are likely to remain slippy and or muddy on the Stray as they do every winter so adjust your pace and embrace the cross country feel !
