Harrogate parkrun #310 run report

Some patchy ice greeted us as we arrived at corner 3 to setup for parkrun 310, a bit of jogging up and down the path to test and all was ok, as you were!

There were 352 (I was 2 off on my prediction – must try harder!!) of you running, jogging and walking on a very cold morning on the Stray.

We had 20 first timers, a fair few visitors as usual, including a couple from Windsor – no it wasn’t royalty, and 40 of you recorded a new Personal Bests

Andrew Dobby was first finisher in a time of 17:59, an unknown runner second, and Edward Garner in third place in 18:53

Lorna Wrigley was first lady home in 20:57 followed by Sharon Hardcastle (21:22) in second and Rebecca Wood (22:49) third.

Massive Congratulations and apologies for not giving you a shout out Stephen Fairweather on completing your 250th parkrun, amazing!!

Congratulations also to David Rowley who completed his 200th parkrun and Jack Brierley who completed his 10th as a Junior.

That’s all from me for this week, and I’m back as your RD this Saturday too!



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. If you still want to run don't let that put you off we have lots of jobs where you can still run !
