At event 93 on 4 November, Sarah Bagshaw completed her 50th run. All 50 runs have been at Lytham Hall and Sarah’s knocked nearly 7 minutes off her first run time. Her son Nathan has done his bronze Duke of Edinburgh placement with us and heads decided to come back for his silver placement too, so it’s a real family affair.

Cancellation this week

We are cancelled on 18 November as there is a weekend arts and crafts fair at Lytham Hall, a great chance to get some unusual presents. It’s also a great chance for parkrun tourism. If you haven’t been to any other parkruns, you just take the same barcode and everything works in the same way.

Birthday parkrun and food bank collection

On 25 November, it’s our birthday! A good few regulars will be off running the fabulous Wesham 10k but we hope lots of you will join us. Feel free to dress up if you like, but we thought we would like to give something back to the local community. We’re going to collect items for our local Fylde food bank. There is absolutely no obligation but if you would like to bring something, the food bank particularly needs toiletries, long-life fruit juice and tinned tomatoes or tinned fruit. Hopefully we can gather a decent contribution between us.

Festive extra parkrun!

parkruns are able to hold extra events of Christmas and New Year’s Day. We’re not having a Christmas Day parkrun but we propose an extra one for New Year’s Day, starting at 10am. This will depend on having enough volunteers so please let us know if you can help. Volunteering in the fresh air may be a good option for those who expect to feel a little delicate! To volunteer on this or any other event, please email lythamhallhelpers@parkrun.com

Each week’s full results and a complete event history can be found on the Lytham Hall parkrun Results Page.

Run report: event # 92, 28 October 2017

Well done to junior Alistair Leivers who qualified for his 10 t shirt this week. And a huge thanks to Harry Thompson who not only completed his silver Duke of Edinburgh placement but also now gains the coveted purple volunteer top for 25 stints.

We have lots of D of E students with us at the moment, some for 3 months, some for 6. They provide a brilliant boost to our volunteer team. If you would like to do a volunteer placement with us as part of this programme, do get in touch. However, there is a waiting list as we can only accommodate so many unsupervised under 18 volunteers at a time.

This month we have a cancellation on 18 November because there is an arts and crafts fair at the Hall, great for unusual Christmas presents! The following week, 25 November, is our 2nd birthday! We’re not asking for presents but we are holding a food bank collection. If you would like to support this, the items most needed are deodorant, shower gel and soap, tinned tomatoes, tinned fruit and long-life fruit juice. If you fancy dressing up, go for it!

This week 179 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 28 awesome volunteers. Lease consider getting your name on the roster one future week, just let us know one Saturday, email lythamhallhelpers@parkrun.com or contact us via social media.

Run report: event # 91, 14 October 2017

This week 192 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

James Buckley (speedy guy with the pram) and Jim Hellewell both ran their 50th parkrun this week – well done! Tim Ashton earned his 25 volunteer top at Sunday’s junior parkrun over at Park View park, having donned a high viz for us at Lytham Hall on several occasions. Special thanks to Patrick Hills who completed his D of E placement. Full marks for cheering on skills!

The recent storms have meant regular checks of the weather forecast. We’re hopeful that all will be well for Saturday. The Hall parkland was closed one day this week and there was some damage to trees, but they have been dealt with and given a clean bill of health. It’s always worth checking for any updates before you set off though, just in case.

Run report: event #90, 7 October 2017

This week we joined thousands celebrating the 13th birthday of parkrun. Here at Lytham Hall, we’ll be 2 years old at the end of November (see below), but it’s 13 years of the growing worldwide movement that has made our Saturday mornings such fun. parkrun has had such an impact in encouraging people to give running a go and has wakened the enthusiasm of many who thought they had left their running days behind them. It started as such a wonderfully simple concept and that’s what still makes it so special. So if you wondered why the marshals were wearing silly hats, that’s why. Thanks to this week’s run director, Michelle, for organising this.

Michelle shared the following short quote in our run brief from the founder of parkrun Paul Sinton-Hewitt CBE:
"parkrun brings people together in a social, supportive and non-competitive environment... We value everyone at parkrun equally... I would like to say a personal thank you to each and every one of you, who all play an important role in promoting the values that we stand for… parkrun is so much more than a traditional running event and spreading that message far and wide is helping us to create a healthier and happier planet".

We were lucky to have our resident photographer David with us again today and, as usual, he took some fantastic shots. These are available through the album section of our Facebook page.

Well done to Angus Craigen on his 50th parkrun this week! 35 of those runs have been with us here at Lytham Hall.

November dates

We won’t be holding a parkrun event on 18 November as there is a craft fair on all weekend at the Hall – a great place to pick up some unusual presents. We’ll be back the following week celebrating our anniversary – 2 years since parkrun arrived in Lytham! No doubt people will rustle up a few cakes for the occasion but we thought it would be great to give something back to the community. We’re all used to taking a present to a party, so this year we're going to organise a collection for our local food bank. We’ll find out what’s most needed and let you know nearer the time. If everyone who'd like to brings a tin or packet or two, we should be able to make a pretty decent contribution.

This week 162 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 15 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.
