Harrow Lodge parkrun is cancelled on 26 August 2017: Havering Show takes place in park

Harrow Lodge parkrun Event # 234 19th August 2017

Today 123 athletes took part in parkrun number 234 at Harrow Lodge. I like the numerical pattern that creates.

The weather was less August, more September but there was still enough blue sky to make a pair of sailor’s trousers as my old Granny used to say.

The café was busy with the terrace overlooking the lake full of parkrunners and volunteers. If you haven’t visited come and say hello to us there after the next parkrun. On that note there is NO PARKRUN at Harrow Lodge next Saturday (26th) due to the Havering Show. Please visit the Home page on the Harrow Lodge parkrun website to find a local alternative. There are 10 parkruns within 10 miles of Harrow Lodge.

Barry Smith was first over the line today for the 18th time. Well done to him!

17 of today’s parkrunners were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 13 volunteers (hurrah!):

Anthony MAPLESDEN • Jenni KULESZA • Melanie WILTSHIRE • David KEELEY • Neil TRUSLER • Keith PENFOLD • Sandra DOBIE • Mike DIVER • William CLISSOLD • Steve CIPA • Mei Lin EDWARDS • Rory BURR • Richard ROZEE

Harrow Lodge parkrun Event # 230 22nd July 2017

 This week 120 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part. Iain Brooks and Tracy Bailey completed their 50th parkruns today. John Evetts achieved his 100th. Many congratulations to them!

Below are a couple of pictures from the newly refurbished 'Lakeview Palace Cafe' which has been under new management for a month. The new coffee machine arrived yesterday and I enjoyed an expertly created cappucino this morning - in a china cup! The menu is extensive - from eggs or beans on toast right through to a 'big breakfast'. The outside terrace has more tables and umbrellas to protect you from UV rays or a summer shower.

So come along and say hello to the Harrow Lodge core team and other parkrunners every Saturday. The cafe is open before the run starts and toilet facilities are available.

         Cheers!

 Thanks, Marshal!

Great day to experience being a marshal; I tried to encourage all the runners to give their best by clapping and cheering them on and it is a welcoming experience to be appreciated with responses of "Thanks" and "good morning." The importance of how significant all the volunteers are to parkrun is cannot be undervalued as without them it would not be possible, and me especially, always when I run parkrun I always find the encouragements provided by the marshals, while running the course, to give me that extra boost of motivation to keep a good pace throughout the 5km run…

It is important to note that the the runners from Barking road runners that do an away Parkrun once a month; have chosen Harrow Lodge today. The Barking runners were a strong coherent team as when they were warming down they all performed there stretches synchronised.

There were 30 new timers and hopefully that number of first timers continues to increase at this great park.

I hope others would take up the role of marshalling the course or to volunteer to help in any way as truly a fulfilling experience.

The total distance run by Harrow Lodge parkrunners since its inception in 2013 is a mahoosive 106,705km! As a result of some quick research I can tell you that this equates to more than two and a half times the distance around the world. Just in case it ever comes up in a quiz you are now fully informed!

It was a hot one today and 113 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 17 recorded new Personal Bests. Good job, everyone!

A cheer for our 17 volunteers this week – Hurrah!!

Harrow Lodge parkrun Event # 223 3rd June 2017

I have missed the last 4 parkruns at Harrow Lodge and so it was comforting to turn up this morning and see the familiar faces. Then to run the course I know so well, passing the encouraging marshals and finally see the timer’s smiling faces willing each runner to a last push to the line. Like a pair of old slippers parkrun fits into many lives every Saturday – comfy, reliable, and welcoming. I hope today’s 11 first timers soon come to feel this way about parkrun as I am sure many of the 113 already do.

 

A cheer for our 16 volunteers this week – Hurrah!!
