Lytham Hall parkrun is cancelled on 24 June 2017: Lytham Club Day

Run report: event #76, 17 June 2016

This week 257 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 78 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part. Many of this week's participants were regulars from Preston and Blackpool, which were both cancelled. It was lovely to have you all join us! It meant the course was busy. Please do remember that parkrun is for everyone. If you're a super speedy runner, please do take care not to bump into others. If you're less speedy, you can help by keeping to the left once people start overtaking. It's not a race but people of all abilities do challenge themselves to beat their own pb's.

We're cancelled this week, as the Hall is hosting events for Lytham Club Day. We're going to be walking in the procession, so if you would like to join us please come to Cleveland Rd (the fire station end) before 9.15. Look out for the parkrun flag!

As you may know, we have been using our B route since one of the paths (Old Ballam Rd) has had an unsuitable running surface, meaning we have had a 4 lap B route. Final work is now scheduled for the path, which will mean us soon returning to the 3 lap A route, or, as we hope, a new 2 lap route. Work is taking place on the following dates in June: Thurs 22, Tues 27 and Thurs 29. There may be further dates. The team usually works between 915am and 1pm, then 2-4pm. It would be great if we as a parkrun community could boost team numbers by a couple so if you are able and willing to help, even if just for one of these shifts, please go along to the Hall. You would need gloves and sturdy footwear and would be helping to rake the loose stone level, as it is dropped on the path. It is pretty physical on the arms.

The event was made possible by 22 wonderful volunteers:

Richard Harry STOREY • Paul CROSS • Clive John BERRY • Clive BARLEY • Sharon COOPER • Kirsten BURNETT • David YOUNG • Martyn BURNETT • Matthew LARDNER • Neil TATE • Nicola WISEMAN • Greg OULTON • David WOOD • Michelle COPELAND • Keith RHEAD • Marian RHEAD • Trinny WHARRIER • Joyce BOND • Marion WILSON • Harry THOMPSON • Jo HAY • Patrick HILLS

Run report: event #75, 10 June 2017

The heavy rain meant a smaller turnout than usual today but that didn’t dampen our spirit. The marshals provided cheers and music to spur everyone along and 11 out of 103 of you achieved personal bests. It was great to welcome a group from Blackburn Road Runners. This club is fantastic at supporting, whether it’s their fellow club members or anyone else. They are often to be spotted at races and they stand out for their friendliness – and the volume of their encouragement! We hope you had a fun visit and that you come and visit us again soon!

Juniors Caleb GRIFFITH and Maddy MARKHAM clocked up their 10th parkrun. Meanwhile Dave NIXON, Howard HENSHAW and Richard HAZELDINE ran their 50th. Dave has also made time to volunteer a couple of times this year. Congratulations to all of you and we hope you get your t-shirts soon!

Also joining us this week were 22 first-time Lytham Hall runners, including 13 people doing their first ever parkrun! Among the group were several couch to 5k graduates along with coaches Jonas and Amanda. Well done to you all, it was brilliant to have you with us!

Future cancellations

We are on next week (17 June) but cancelled on 24 June, when Lytham Club Day sees lots going on at the Hall. We’ll be walking in the procession, so you’re welcome to come and join us.

Blackpool and Preston parkruns are both cancelled next week so it could be a bumper week

Local events

There are some great local running events coming up to make you aware of.

On 18 June, the PTFA from Lytham St.Annes Technology and Performing Arts College (Ansdell High to the oldies amongst us) is holding a Fun Run. There’s a 1k starting at 10.30 and then a 5k at 11.15. Both start and finish in the school grounds. You may have seen that our local schools are receiving cuts to per pupil funding, so the PTFA, pupils and parents will be grateful for your support. For more details, go online at http://www.lythamhigh.lancs.sch.uk/parents/PTFA/forthcoming-events

Also on 18 June, in the afternoon, it’s Freckleton half marathon. Good luck if you’re running it, and if you live on the route, why not come and cheer everyone along?

On Sunday 9 July, Lytham St.Annes Road Running Club will be holding their popular St.Annes carnival 5k (11am start) and 1500m fun run (10am). These are accurately measured and certified events along St.Annes prom, with half the profits going to the carnival charity. More details at http://www.runlythamstannes.co.uk/

Run report: event #73, 20 May 2017

It was anther glorious parkrun morning, as 181 people ran, jogged and walked the course and 44 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.

21 of our parkrunners this week were first timers at Lytham Hall, with 11 of those running their first ever parkrun. Welcome to the parkrun family! Your Saturday mornings need never be the same again :-)

The event was made possible by 28 volunteers. Most of our volunteers this week were from Run Mummy Run, which is a supportive ladies' Facebook group for runners - from those bravely taking their first step out on a couch to 5k journey through to the slightly mad ones who run ultras! All our volunteers were fabulous, cheering everyone along, and indeed for some of them marshalling was their first taste of parkrun. Volunteering is a great first step if you feel unsure about runnning. You'll see what a friendly atmosphere there is and how runners of all abilities are equally valued. We do get excited when a course record looks like it might be broken, but it's the sight of a new runner pushing themselves and crossing the finish line nearer to 10 o'clock that makes us feel all warm and gooey about parkrun. Here's this week's line up of lovely ladies and charming chaps:

Ali CUNLIFFE • Annabel SOUTHERN • Charlotte Laura COPELAND • Claire ASHTON • Claire WISEMAN • Clive John BERRY • Emily SOUTHERN • Hannah CONNELL • Harry THOMPSON • Jeremy MCCANDLESS • Jude BARTON • Julie WISEMAN • Kirsten BURNETT • Laura BUCKLEY • Lauren BURNETT • Maisie COOPER • Marion WILSON • Michelle COPELAND • Michelle SHERIDAN • Morgan RICHARDS • Nicola WISEMAN • Roy STEVENS • Sarah COOK • Saul ASHTON • Sharon COOPER • Susie BUCKLEY • Tilly CUNLIFFE • Trinny WHARRIER

Please remember that we have 2 cancellations in June. 3 June is a weekend arts and craft fair at the hall and stallholders need to set up early, so there is no parkrun. On 24 June, it's Lytham Club Day. The hall is the focus of many of the day's activities but that doesn't include parkrun :-( We're joining in though - we've entered the procession as "Lytham's Running Community", where we'll be joined by Park View junior parkrun, Lytham St.Annes Road Runners, and other local run groups. This will involve walking through Lytham waving at the crowds and showing what a lovely bunch we are. We'd love some of you to come and join in. Kids love it! We'll post details nearer the time of where to meet. This will be before 9am on Club Day.

This means that June gives you a chance to check out one of the other Lancashire parkruns, if you haven't already done so. They're not all quite as flat as us......

Righty-ho. Here's the stats:
