Car Parking on 1st & 8th August 2015

On the first two Saturday's in August 2015 we will not have any/limited use of the main car park so we would ask that if you are travelling to us by car that you arrive early - 8:30am - in order to get diverted onto the alternative grass parking. Marshals will be positioned to direct you to the Rossall Avenue entrance to the park and will show you onto the grass while there is space.

On the 1st August we will also be using the winter course (3 1/2 tarmac laps starting being Riverside) which is another good reason to get there early! The run brief will be at 8:45am and then we will need to walk up to the start ready to get underway at 9am.

If the grass parking fills up we would ask you to park legally and considerately, not blocking any driveways or pavements. If you are able to leave the car at home and come on foot even better, and there is plenty of cycle parking by the community hall if you can use your bike.

PLEASE NOTE: The barrier at Rossall Avenue will be closed while the event takes place and re-opened when the tail runner has finished in order to keep the runners and other park users safe during the event.

See you bright and early in the park. #DFYB!

Run report #134 18/07/15

Apologies for the late report folks, results are below.

Quick follow up on t-shirts: for anyone who thinks they are due one the milestone t-shirts you can view your 'club progress' by clicking on the 'Manage my profile' link on any parkrun HQ email, i.e. your result, the parkrun newsletter, volunteer thank-you emails. You may have to be patient if it states 'you be able to claim it soon' but the flood of pictures on facebook and the sea of purple volunteer shirts last Saturday is proof positive the system is catching up.

Talking of volunteers, huge thanks to all involved on Saturday - shout out especially again to Roz and Ruth who hit their '25' milestone. Please visit our future roster for volunteer opportunities.

A reminder to runners with dogs, we ask you to abide by the following rules:

  • One dog per runner
  • Most of our events do allow runners with dogs, though in some locations this may not be possible, please ask at your local event.
  • In any case, we ask that dogs are under firm control, kept on a short lead or harness, and extreme care taken to avoid tripping other runners.
  • Not to register their dogs. Any registration allocated to a dog, or any other animal, will be deleted and the results removed.

The PRC takeover

Run Report for event #132 by Run Director Mayur Desai

20150704_094856

Last parkrunday we welcome 30 first timers; 14 of them were new to parkrun (including first finisher for the day) and 16 tourists. Surprisingly a low turnout of 190 runners for bright Summer’s day. It looked even less when we started the pre-run brief.

20150704_105742

 

Highlight of the day was the wonderful Portishead Running Club team who hosted the event for us taking over all the key positions supported by myself as the RD and Lynn Booth & Robin Phillips for photographs.

We played a small game among the marshals and the Funnel team to guess the total number of runners on the day. Lynn wins it by guessing it ~170 :) while everyone else guessed in the range of 130-150 mark.

Thanks to all the volunteers from this week –

Andrea GOUDE • Angela COPELAND • Cecilie ANDERSEN • Christian SAXTOFT • Duncan MANNING • Elizabeth MANNING • Katharine FAULKNER • Louise THOMAS • Lucy HISCOCKS • Lynn BOOTH • Mayur DESAI • Paula JAMES • Poppy MAULE • Richard NUELL • Robin PHILLIPS • Sarah HAWKINS • Simon FAULKNER • Stephen Dale CORBETT • Stuart WALLACE

Not forgetting Giacomo and Ian who kindly volunteered to be the Pacers for the day. I received ‘Thank yous’ on their behalf from a few runners who managed to beat their times as a result of their Pacing.

We would like to invite local running clubs and recreational running groups to host a parkrun event at Little Stoke. It’s a great way for parkrunners to get to know local running clubs and also for the clubs to gain visibility among the runners.

Alternatively, if you would like to volunteer for any role in coming weeks please check the Future Roster and let us know if you fancy any role. We do provide full training, although all the roles are fairly easy to handle.

The photos for this week’s event are already uploaded on to the Flickr Stream.
