Countdown to Harrogate parkrun #369

Happy Birthday to Harrogate parkrun - we turn seven this week so tomorrow's our anniversary event. We hope you'll come and join us as we mark those seven amazing years.

If you want to sport red in celebration that'd be fab, although not compulsory, but do be sure to dress suitably for the weather.

It's going to be a bit cold in the morning so wrap up warm. And bring a cosy layer to wear when you're milling about at the finish - one thing we've certainly learnt over the last seven years is that the middle of the Stray is always way, way colder than anywhere else round and about.

We can't wait to see you all tomorrow, just before 9 - in the meantime have a lovely Friday evening.

And oh......don't forget your Barcode.

 

Mid week message for our 7th birthday celebration

Hey folks, well its all getting a bit exciting. Can you believe that there has been a parkrun nearly every week for the last seven years in Harrogate? This Saturday will be special, like it is every other Saturday. Come rain or shine there will be fantastic volunteers, fabulous runners/walkers, laughter, friendships and a good honest free 5 km timed event.

If you are wanting to dress for the occasion, then feel free to get fancy. As a suggestion, people could wear red to show parkrun love and to celebrate all the healthy strong hearts who have run or walked during the last seven years on the Stray. It's also fitting as the good people of Harrogate parkrun helped to fund the Defib (AED) that is available to help those who may need it in the future.

See you there :D

 

Harrogate parkrun Event number 368 12th January 2019

Well what another lovely parkrunday it was. Our fantastic volunteers did a superb job getting the course set up and this week we utilised what has been called the Braddon funnel (named after its founder), which is where we had to pass corner 1 again before we could turn into the finish straight, which is needed when we've come inside the tree line a little more and therefore shortened each lap slightly. 

A longer finish funnel was in place nicely anticipating our burgeoning numbers and we matched last week's record attendance of 555 recorded results. We would have been at 559 but a few people crossed the line and then (shock horror) ducked out of the funnel! Each week we do ask you not to 'funnel duck' since it can play havoc with the results if we don't spot you doing it. Essentially the person behind you ends up receiving your finish time, not an issue if you are 1 second apart but more of an issue if you are 30 seconds apart. So, if you have forgotten your barcode or for whatever reason do not want your result recorded against your name, please do cross the line, stay in the finish funnel and collect a finish token; at this point you can bypass the barcode scanners and place the finish token into the token box. You will then have happy results processors and happy parkrunners since they will get their results more quickly. Thank you :-)

We had an amazing 51 - yes 51 - brand new parkrunners. To all of you brilliant people, we hope you enjoyed your first taste of parkrun, and we do hope to see you again next week. 30 people who had that experience previously, completed their 2nd parkrun on Saturday with 23 of those getting a PB, so to the 51 first timers, look what you could get this Saturday, the shiny new PB badge is more than likely to be yours on your return. 21 people completed their 3rd parkrun and are now well on their way to the intoxicating repeat feeling that parkrunday brings, and before you know it, they will be determining their holiday locations based on whether there is a parkrun nearby [or maybe that's just me :-)]

Many congratulations on achieving 50th parkrun milestones to Mike Fawcett, Owen Hunter, Richard Pearce and Peter Hibbert, and yay! to Harry Crichton in the 11-14 age category for completing his 10th parkrun, and doing it in style with a new PB; congratulations and hugely well done! We hope you all enjoy sporting your new milestone t-shirts very soon.

Brand new pacer vests were sported and looked rather spiffing, and many thanks to Nidd Valley Road Runners for funding these and making these possible. We had some lovely visitors, we hope you enjoyed our parkrun, and we hope to see you again. Clara ran a whole lap before seeking the taxi services and warmth of her buggy, well done Clara, 1.5 laps next week? Our RD for the day was family man Sean Brennan who took a break from milling around to superbly oversee our morning congregation and an old favourite with lovely shoulders was seen amongst the throng [I'm sure that means something to someone]. 

 

Another successful parkrun held and for those able/savvy enough to go along to the cafe afterwards, another Saturday morning passed in the satisfying warmth processing the results, sorting the tokens, and chatting all things parkrun with your parkrun buddies (new buddies welcomed every week) to the sound track of cappuccino, latte, tea, croissant, orange juice, bacon sandwich and granola. Now, how long until the next one?

Just a few reminders:

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!

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.

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 -  It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday.

Harrogate parkrun #367 Run Report

Saturday 5th January will go down in the record books for parkrun. On an international level there were more parkrun participants than ever, with the world wide participation record being smashed at over 340,000, and the women's parkrun world record being beaten too by Charlotte Arter running in Cardiff, finishing in 15:50.

At Harrogate, we had our largest attendance ever at 555, beating our previous best of 524 reached on Christmas Day.  All of these lovely people were cheered and supported around the Stray by our fantastic collection of Hi Viz heroes. Plus we had the wonderful Nicola Forward with us from the 'With Me Now' pakrun podcast. Give yourselves a pat on the back as she was incredibly complimentary about all things Harrogate parkrun.

First man home this week was Chris Oddy and first woman Alexandra Louise Watson-Usher.

There were 63 people running their first ever parkrun; see you next week for your second. There were also an incredible 67 PBs.  Hats off to you all!

There were three people celebrating their 50th parkrun Gillian Fawcett, Sally Arkinsall and Chris Oddy (yes he was first man back too). Well done to you all.

Another first was seeing our Co-Event Director Ted Welton being lapped after no more than 200 metres of his first lap! "How can this be?" I hear you cry. There was a little teething problem which Ted and others sorted before starting his parkrun 5 minutes after everyone else... and he still finished in under 25 minutes!

It was an incredible day on the Stray with a few tribulations for the Run Director(s) and the incredible team of volunteers but all finished well on an amazing, record breaking day.

It’s the New Year midweek message even though it feels like a Monday

New Year, new resolution? It's Harrogate parkrun #367 . A huge welcome to all first-timers, returners-after-a-while and indeed our regulars. It’s shaping up to be a good one, if a little chilly.
The volunteer roster is looking very healthy for this week (thank you so much to those wonderful people who have volunteered). If you are looking at the names on the future roster with just that little bit if envy and want to be one of our amazing and fabulous volunteers over the next few weeks, we are still a bit thin on the ground after this weekend ... but if you're still looking for a New Year's resolution, why not put your name down? Go on, you know it makes sense! Please drop an email to HarrogateHelpers@parkrun.com with your name and barcode number if you feel the call.
The weather is looking like it will be bright and mostly clear but please wrap up warm. The forecast is for near-freezing temperatures with light winds, meaning a subzero windchill. Perhaps it'll be time to wear your new running tops received for Christmas? And of course your new Christmas running trainers - everybody loves new running shoes!
Hope you all have a fabulous 2nd part of the week and we look forward to seeing you on The Stray for a 9am start.
And of course....... Don't Forget Your Barcode - no barcode, no time! #DFYB

 

Harrogate parkrun #366 Run Report

It was ‘Hold on to your hats’ and indeed anything else that wasn’t fastened down on Saturday as the wind blasted us from all angles. It certainly made set-up interesting with various bit of kit striking a bid for freedom if we dared to leave it unattended for a moment. Even kitting out the volunteers was a challenge with the hi-vis refusing to co-operate and we had to abandon the trusty ‘home-straight’ cones fearing we’d never see them again.

However such testing conditions didn’t deter 383 fabulous parkrunners who turned out to clock up the final parkrun of the year. For 26 amazing people it was also their first parkrun ever, impressively starting those New Year resolutions early. You've joined the parkun family - hope to see you again very soon. We also welcomed another first timer - our new measuring wheel had its inaugural outing and performed superbly.

As is usual in the holiday season we welcomed quite a number of tourists form various places – the furthest travelled award has to go to visitors who came all the way from..... Hong Kong and Melbourne.

With precision planning 4 people timed their milestone membership to perfection all joining the 50 Club on the last run of 2018 – so big congratulations go to Lindsey Pallant, Justine Bowden, Paul Grindley and Jeff Oakley.

Of course none of this would be possible without the wonderful volunteers who step forward without hesitation to continually fill the roster. Whatever the weather they enthusiastically support and encourage everyone and this week was no exception so thank you.

So that’s it for this year – we wish you all a very Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Harrogate parkrun #365 run report

Wow, who'd have thought it. Santa brought us an attendance PB for Harrogate parkrun. OK so the big man was helped by our fabulous team of volunteers and all 524 runners walkers and joggers who completed a festive three laps of the Stray.

Extra special Kudos to Sean who had to measure the course twice due to Wheely Mcwheelface the measuring wheel falling ill, some say he overdid it on mince pies all we know is we have a new and as yet unnamed wheel who starts work this week.

Untitled

Special shout outs this week to David BULMER, Mick YOUNGSON, Nick CREBBIN & Nigel PULLING who all enter the 50 club, Harry BROOK-DOBSON hit his 100th brilliant timing all !

Mid week Christmas message 2018

Hey folks, the Harrogate parkrun team hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. If you were one of the amazing 524 runners and walkers (record attendance) on Christmas day then even better, as we know your day started out wonderfully! All made possible by our splendid angelic volunteers.

Just a quick note to say we are on as usual for this Saturday 29th on the stray.

We are not holding a parkrun at Harrogate on years day but there are plenty around locally. If you have time to think about it a bit you can do the new years day parkrun double!

Look forward to seeing you all on the 29th :D

 

Harrogate parkrun #364 Run Report

It certainly was Super Saturday on the Stray as 348 of you supported by a fabulous team of hi-vis heroes gathered together to enjoy another amazing parkrun. The sun shone, the wind stayed away and the drizzle managed to hold off until we’d just finished packing up. And last week’s bitter, bitter, bitter cold was thankfully absent.

As usual everyone miraculously appeared from all directions to create a multicoloured throng by the bench, at which point the Harrogate Advertiser photographer corralled us into a tidy and more photogenic grouping. So keep an eye out in the New Year for an article and see if you can spot yourself waving.

There was a further pause as the assembled masses spontaneously applauded a group of firefighters who left the pack mid-briefing, setting off at pace towards corner 1 to join their strategically parked fire engine in response to a call-out.  

Everyone was on their way shortly afterwards and it wasn’t long before the field was stretched out around the four sides of the course, like our very own decorative garland. Many of you took the opportunity to sport seasonal attire and we were treated to a mix of Santa outfits, reindeer antlers, Christmas Pudding bobble hats, and assorted festive leggings and jumpers.

Shout outs this week go to Junior Ben Brearley who has joined the 10 Club running it in style with a PB and to Jodie Kirby who joined the 100 Club. Congratulations to both of you and to the other 24 people with a new PB.

We welcomed new parkrunners who were taking part in their very first parkrun - hope you’ve well and truly got the parkrun bug and will be back for more soon. We also had a number of visitors from other courses, amongst them Andrew from Bristol who set off very early this morning to make his annual trip to see us. His parkrun story started 4 years ago this very weekend here at Harrogate and it was lovely to chat with him at the finish and hear what a fabulous experience it has been so far – we look forward to seeing you again same time, same place next year!

At this point we’d normally say ‘that’s it til next week’ – only it isn’t because we’re doing it all over again on Tuesday. So do join us if you can on Christmas Day – it’s the usual 9am start. We are expecting to see you either in Christmassy outfits or your lovely new running gear if you were on the ‘good list’.

So in the meantime enjoy the rest of the weekend and looking forward to seeing you all soon.

And now for the 'official bits':

This week 348 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.
