Harrogate parkrun #376 Run report

Wow, that was a blustery one!

Today was my first trip to Harrogate parkrun. A random night away in a hotel means only 1 thing, which parkrun can I attend… who needs a hotel breakfast anyway! I also managed to register and drag along some new ‘willing’ victims!

Despite the risk of storm Hannah, or is it still storm Gareth, 209 hardy souls braved the elements to complete Harrogate parkrun number 376. Of these there were several first timers and 7 people completely new to parkrun so well done to them… hopefully the conditions today will not put you off returning. Somehow there were also a few PB’s today, I can only assume those with a PB managed to use the 'tail wind' better than the rest of us.

This was all made possible by a team of fluorescent clad wonders. This weeks hi vis heroes were Louise ALLEN, Pauline BAIN, Benjamin BAIRD, Lynsey BARRACLOUGH, Emma BRAUNTON, Louise BUCK, Aileen CAMERON, Hope COOPER, Ian COOPER, Billy FOX, Sam FUGILL, Joseph HARRIS, Susan HOLDEN, Sarah HUGHAN, Martin LOFTHOUSE, Ruth MANN, Moira MCTAGUE, Jay NORTON, Caroline RAINBOW - GARDENER, Jane ROBBINS, Susan ROGERS, Jeremy SCOTT, James SHARRATT, Martin SHAW, Gavin SMITH, Paul SNELLING, Ted WELTON, Louisa WELTON, Alexandra WHAPPLES, Mark WRIGHTSON a big thankyou to all this weeks volunteers.

Parkrun can only survive with the help of volunteers so please have a look at the future roster and look for any ways you can help out.

After the parkrun I squelched back to the hotel for a late full English to warm from the elements, 3 coffees later and I am starting to regain sensation. Well done to all today’s volunteers and athletes and I look forward to seeing you all again soon... thankyou for making this tourist feel welcome.

Huge thanks to Clive for the run report.

Right parkrun weather fairy, you really let us down this week. I think we are going to give conditions a B for brutal ! Yep is was cold and wet and wet and cold. On the plus side we are all waterproof and there was an awesome tail wind for part of the course. So we were not going to let a spot of weather stop us enjoying our three laps of the Stray were we, oh no.

An extra special thanks to all of this weeks volunteers who were simply amazing and fortunately have all thawed out now.

We've loads of photo's on Yorkshire Runner Photos page on Facebook.

Wowzers what a week. We know we were going to be busy with the SRG runners and Knaresborough Striders both planning on coming to Harrogate parkrun this week.

So it was a relief to ha a roster full of brilliant volunteers on hand to make sure everything went to plan. As always a huge thank you to you all. Here's a few of the team with Moira's map.

Harrogate parkrun #373 run report

Meteorologists might have you know that the first parkun of spring is not
until the first Saturday in March, but Mother Nature suggested that we could
have one in February never the less.
It meant that such good weather brought out 555 parkrunners this week to
run, jog, walk and pace round the Stray, 77 of whom were new to the
Harrogate course, including 27 parkrun first timers. A little route
tinkering avoided the unseasonably early crocus crop, so please take care
and stick to the amended sections. The zeal of the crocus police is not to
be under-estimated, so it's important that we rub along with them
harmoniously. Besides, who doesn't feel guilty squashing flowers?

An unknown runner came home first, with Andrew Dobby coming in second
at17:22 and Tom Mitchell third at 17:59. The vastly experienced
Amelie Aylesbury romped home as first lady in 21:05, followed by first-timer
Abby Prince in 21:33 and visiting from Bristol, Debbie Hunt in 22:24. Andrew
scored the highest Male age grade result, while Jayne Dale made the trip
from Beverly worthwhile by scoring the highest female age grade. 

Good weather and conditions make for great running, so this week's
parkrunners clocked up a fantastic 116 PBs.  We even saw father and son PBs
from Tim and Joe Hallas - Tim on his 289th attempt, no less- plus the speedy
siblings Caleb and Amelie Aylesbury who have run 260 and 283 times
respectively to manage this feat.  Proof that dedication and determination
pays off at the parkrun whether you are under 15 or over 50. 
Finally, congratulations to Bruce Ford, Nicole Diggle and Simon Lawson for
joining the 50 club; we hope to see you in those well earned red shirts very
soon!

 

Count down to Harrogate parkrun #373

Tick tock its the count down clock. Anyone remember the era when you could phone for the time and a voice would speak? Well I always think of that when its count down, that and the famous song with final and countdown in it. Moving swiftly on.

Tomorrow looks to be fantastic, we have plenty of pacers, the spring flowers are really getting into the swing of this lovely warmth. Expect course alterations eg finish area. Looked firm-ish underfoot, could be for some, perfect conditions

Don't forget your barcode and see you there :D:D:D:D
