Humber Bridge parkrun #214 – 30/6/2018

The Country Park is a lovely place to visit at any time, however, with hot sunny weather like today....its makes it even better.


177 people turned up on this hot, sunny morning to run, walk or jog the 5k route, with 11 taking part in parkrun for the first time. Welcome to the parkrun family everyone, hope you enjoyed it and we see you again soon.


There was quite a few black t'shirts being worn today to say goodbye to Walter SOMERVILLE, one of Humber Bridge parkruns regular runners and volunteer who is moving back home to NZ, today being his last parkrun here, which he did in style by finishing first and smashing in one last PB....well done!  Safe travels Walter and keep in touch :)


Speaking of PB's, theres so many to list, see the link below.  Everyone was brilliant, with the sun and heat clearly not slowing anyone down. You were all brilliant!  And Jacqueline EDWARDS and Sean CAHILL were also celebrating reaching 50 parkruns milestone today.  Fantastic achievement.



As always, we have to thank this week's hi-vis heroes (aka volunteers) below, who make parkrun happen each and every week.  We honestly couldn't run it without you.

Chris POWNEY  •  Dave MONAGHAN  •  David BIRKIN  •  Emily MATTISON  •  Helen PENN  •  Jane DOWNING  •  Matthew FISHER-GILL  •  Paul CLARKE  •  Sarah LOGAN  •  Tania CREAM  •  Tony BARKER  •  Vicky COE  •  Victoria RIDDIOUGH  •  William BURNETT

Finally, good luck to everyone racing this weekend wherever you are.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and week ahead.....only 7 more sleeps till the next parkrun (and counting!).

Event #212

We were truly blessed this week, the weather fairies had been working overtime to keep us guessing just exactly what season we are supposed to be in! Having foolishly left home without my coat ( it being summer and all) I was only too pleased to get a good old soaking before the run started : ) .

Good to see that it didn't put too many of you off though as we had a field of 166 participants join us, including 23 first timers to our course and visitors from Grantham, Sunderland, Derby, Cambridge, York and Scunthorpe. You're all very welcome and we hope you enjoyed your visit with us.

The volunteer roster is looking very healthy for the next few weeks, so a great big thank you for that, however, it would be great if we could get June 30th and July 21st filled up asap as the Penn family are away those weekends  ( we will also be away for September 15th run looking ahead)  cheers!

Congratulations are in order for Fiona Wales who this week not only completed her 100th parkrun but also her 50th volunteer role as she tail walked around for us this week. Fantastic work Fiona : ) .

Congratulations also to Tom Shortland who completed his 50th parkrun with us yesterday - with a nice p.b too : ).
