Run report event #97 27/09/14

Hi parkrunners, hope you enjoyed the event on Saturday.

173 runners took up their starting positions as the journalistic team of Rich Kenington and Caroline Potter documented the occasion. I think a video of the start is a first for LS parkrun, for those of you who've not seen it yet you can follow the link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anp6E8BiwJk

Rich took some great pictures too, you can find them on the Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/groups/littlestoke-parkrun/

Thanks Rich and Caroline, and indeed all of our volunteers for the day Lisa, Jim, Bob, Andy G, Simon, Andy J, Rich, Lu, Jackie, Sabrina, Caroline, Stuart, Nicola and Samantha. I was very grateful to have a full roster by Thursday including several people putting on the hi-vis for the first time. It's encouraging to get a response like that and it means very much to the run directors to have our runners support the event so strongly.

First across the line this week was Jamie from Bristol & West AC, pulling the next 3 finishers behind him to new PBs. Jamie's not registered unfortunately so his time's not up (please register Jamie if you're reading this!), but congratulations anyway and to Robin, Peter and David close on your tail.

Across the line first for the girls was Rebecca Awde on her first parkrun, not a bad start! Ali Vaz and Meryl Fogg were next to finish and again both scored PBs on their 7th and 2nd outings respectively.

Well done to Luke Smith who was visiting from Pomphrey Hill and joined Club 10 in the process, great to have you along Luke.

Event 96 – 20th September ’14

Another fine morning and countless Daddy longlegs, greeted 152 parkrunners this morning, which considering the Bristol Half was the next day was quite surprising.

I was in a very fortunate position this week as the volunteer roster was 95% full before Tuesday, many thanks to  Lynn BOOTH, David BROADBENT, Suzanne CUNDY, Andrew Brian DARTON, Dave GUEST, Joe HONEYSETT, Clare JUBB, Carolyn LOVE, Ciaran MCQUADE, Oliver MURTON, Wendy NETTO, Trevor NETTO, Jonathan PEARCE & Sheila TURNER and all the offers of help on the day.

Also thanks to Derek da Silva who helped make a few ‘slight’ adjustments to the course at short notice…

If you missed it during the brief we now have a new run director to join Martin, Mayur, Becky, Brad and myself, Clare Jubb has now joined the core team and will  be carrying out her first run directorship on the 8th of November, Clare, as many of you will know has been involved with parkrun and particularly Little stoke for a long time now. Please join with me in welcoming her to the team.

Can’t beat a grand day out with friends in the Park – Event #95

Thanks to our merry band of Hi-Vis heroes again for putting on another slick and well run event at Little Stoke Park for our 176 runners to enjoy. Sandra, Jackie, Pete and Pete were the supportive marshals out on the course, while Shelley, Tina and Mel ensured you were all scanned efficiently having gone through the finish funnel, brilliantly manned by Martin, Richard, Ros and Jim. The run was well backed up by Dave who looked like he was enjoying a good old chin wag with Charlie Redwood for most of the run, and even picked up lots of cones on their last lap. Thanks Dave for bringing along some Jammie Dodgers to keep us volunteers company during the run too. Please don’t always leave it to someone else to volunteer every week and volunteer in the coming weeks by emailing us at littlestokehelpers@parkrun.com. I notice next week’s roster is full, possibly due to some event on the streets of Bristol on Sunday. Good luck to anyone running the Bristol Half.
Good running was had by lots of runners with 36 of the returning 154 runners recording Personal Bests, with 22 first timers among our 113 male and 63 female runners. Some very fast running from Helen, Rebecca and Bridget among the ladies and from Peter and Lewis, plus one other unknown runner who does not seem to want to register, among the men. Well done to Sebastian Aquilina who marshalled a couple of times in the last few weeks and decided to run his first 5k parkrun, while collecting conkers on the way, and to Matthew Curtis on running his 50th parkrun. Also welcome to Ollie and Ross Landymore on their first parkrun’s.
Thanks to all our runners and volunteers for making Little Stoke parkrun what it is. Remember to pick your lost property before it goes to charity shop. Results and stats below for your perusal. Look forward to seeing you all again in the Park soon.
Cheers
Martin Dunne – Run Director
