Linwood parkrun #90 – 14th April 2018

Today was another successful event for the 90th Linwood parkrun .It was inspiring to watch 160 people make the effort to complete the 5k course. Some of you managed not to get too muddy, some didn’t. Nothing that a good shower couldn’t remove though!! Hope you all enjoyed yourselves and will spread the word to others to join us on a Saturday morning. Everyone welcome. It was lovely to have 15 people join parkrun for the first time today with another 8 visiting from other areas. Hope that this will be the first of many and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

There is no doubt that participating in regular parkruns is only one way of maintaining fitness as proven by the 28 people who all achieved a personal best time this morning. Great effort and one of which you should all be very proud . A huge well done. It is worth noting that Fiona Murray who only joined parkrun in January this year and at that time completed her first parkrun in 32.18mins, has now finished 9 events with an improved time each week producing her record time of 26.52mins today. Fiona, this is an outstanding effort and most encouraging to others whether they are a seasoned club runner or starting out on their path to fitness. Many congratulations. There were also some super runs today by several club runners with the first twelve finishers completing the course in under 21mins. Callum Matthews in 1st place who has just returned from injury with an excellent time of 16.28mins and first visitor to Linwood, Natalie Sharp was first female to finish in a time of 20.20mins. Extremely well done. C5AF4E89-0886-41B3-9ECA-F95634D2017C

Many thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their time today so that our event could go ahead . As always your contribution and teamwork produced a seamless event .Thank you also to everyone who came forward to offer their assistance for the next couple of weeks. It makes the role of run director much less stressful for the coming week to know that the roster is almost full. Just one more marshall needed.
A quick mention to everyone for conforming to the request of Renfrewshire Leisure by parking in our designated parking area . Please continue to do so as it frees up spaces in the car park for users of the sports centre and maintain a good working partnership.

If you yourself or anyone you know has an upcoming milestone please let the run director know via email or speak to the run director before the run commences so that we can acknowledge them during the pre run briefing.
Thank you to the many volunteers who took time out of their day to help keep all of the runners safe throughout the course and after, we do hope that everyone takes their turn of volunteering as the run would not happen without them. So if you would like to volunteer please email linwoodoffice@parkrun.com or ask at the end of a run for following weeks.

A few other pieces of information are; there are quite a few pieces of clothing that have been left behind so if you are missing anything please let us know in the following weeks and collect it, we would like to ask you to make sure you are parking on the side road at the bottom of the car park as the car park becomes very congested with all of the people using the On-x facilities.

We also had two of our long time runners achieve their 50 milestone with us on Saturday with both Tom Goldie and junior Erin Adams qualifying for their red T-shirt. Erin's grandpa said it had cost her a lot of sweat and tears to get there but had cost him 36 rolls and sausage, 14 rolls and bacon and 50 cans of Coke. Congratulations to you both from Linwood parkrun. If you are approaching a milestone please drop us an email in advance or speak to us prior to the brief so we can acknowledge your achievement.

Huge thank you as always go to our hi-viz volunteers who braved the cold on Saturday to ensure your safety. The reason we constantly ask for Volunteers each week was highlighted on Saturday when one of our runners took ill on Saturday but our Marshal sprung into action and the situation was resolved quickly and the runner eventually finished the course. Thank you also goes to the two runners who stopped to provide medical assistance.

As stated last week Renfrewshire Leisure have asked that we park in our designated area of the car park adjacent to the Woodlands Bowling Club, they have been very supportive of our run from the outset and we'd be grateful if you could follow their request. See link below to our webpage for further details  http://www.parkrun.org.uk/linwood/course/ or view the map on our Facebook page.

Enjoy the rest of your week and look forward to seeing you all next week. #DFYB

Linwood parkrun #83 17th February 2018

DSC02541

After so much recent rain, snow and wind, it was great to find dry , still and sometimes even a little sun greeting this mornings group of volunteers and parkrunners. An early course inspection revealed some puddles on the course, but much less water than last weeks splashfest and we were all set for our usual two lap main course parkrun.

A huge thanks to this weeks volunteers , they were magnificent. James Cassidy was a volunteer for the first time after just a few runs at Linwood , and confirmed it was a great , fun way to add to his parkrun experiences.

145 runners joined us this morning, with 24 first time parkrunners to Linwood, among which was a bit of parkrun tourism from Cheltenham parkrun. A belated acknowledgement of two 50 milestones for Mathew Svensson and Kevin Adams was given before our timekeepers for the day, Douglas and Tom got everyone underway.

23 new PBs were earned from todays runners who ran and splashed their way around the course. The first runner home was William MacNaughhtan in a tiime of 18:11, with today's fastest women run being achieved by Alison Wood from Garscube Harriers in 21:55 mins.

Our water obstacle continues to be a feature that continues to be a bit of a fun splash for kids of all ages :-)

Well done to all of our finishers today. It looked like you all had a great time out there, and lets hope we see you back next week and the course becomes even drier

Once again a huge thanks to our happy bunch of volunteers, who smiled, cheered and helped us all have a great and safe day. I would ask that you consider sustaining your parkrun by volunteering. 1 volunteer role every 10 parkruns would make the weekly preparation less stressful . It really is a good way to see another side and engage further in our parkrun community. If you cant run because of injury or an upcoming "race" then volunteering is a great way to keep involved. If you can help out at any time then a comment on the facebook page or an email to linwoodhelpers@parkrun.com would be appreciated.

Already looking forward to next weeks run
