Event #246 Sunshine, canoes and a funfair

Spotted in the sky today: a yellow ball. Allegedly it was "The Sun", last seen...well it feels like a long time ago. Perhaps it was this that bought out over 300 runners for the first time since January, or maybe the end of Easter Holidays, but it was fantastic to welcome 29 first timers and well done the 49 people who recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

And the sun bought lots of people to the Prom today, including a group who were canoeing, and people setting up a funfair. Both issues were superbly dealt with by the volunteers and I wish to once again thank them for ensuring we had a free, fun, safe, timed run today. So thank you

Invitation to celebrate our 250th event

It's party time!

On 12th May we're due to stage our 250th Maldon Prom parkrun. Yes, you read that right!

We're inviting parkrunners from anywhere in the country, who have already reached this milestone, to join us that day and help us to celebrate. We'd love everyone to wear their parkrun milestone shirts for a fantastic photo opportunity, and we might even organise some cake!

So spread the word, let's see how many 250 club tourists we can muster :-)

 

Event #245 7th April 2018: a calm, if damp, one!

A largely uneventful one this week. There was a sense of calm about the place, the absence of a brisk wind is really noticeable. Our set up was done and dusted promptly and the volunteers trickled in for their respective briefings.

We had visitors from nearby Chelmsford and not so nearby Swansea and we gave Mandy Graves a shout out to mark her 100th parkrun. If you're celebrating a parkrun milestone one week, please let the Run Director know that morning so they can give you a shout out, we don't have a system for knowing who's at what stage and who's there that day so don't rely on us!

We're 5 events away from our next event milestone, 12th May will be our 250th Maldon Prom parkrun. We've invited parkrunners from around the country, who have already reached this milestone, to join us that day and we hope there'll be lots of them. We may even organise some cake :-)

Unfortunately there are no photos this week as we had no volunteer photographer, boo :-(

See you next time

Event #241: 10th March 2018 – from a DofE guest report writer

Sincere apologies to Jade for the fact that this report got lost in our email and has only just been published. Although it's a little late please do read it, especially if you are, or know of someone who might be, thinking of volunteering as part of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme....Thanks Jade, and sorry once again!

"It was quite a nice, warm morning (surprising as its March!) everyone was very lively and ready for the run. But there was a few things to do first all of the volunteers had to do there briefing and then the first timers had a warm welcome!

I let my family go off and get ready for the run, whilst I waited for the starting signal. Its quite a nice view from the platform on amphitheatre from above where everyone stood as you can watch them all go round the first part of the course and when they come through to the finish that is my favourite bit as everyone's cheering along and they all always finish with a fantastic super speedy sprint. The timers were ready, the runners were ready, and the team were ready...3......2.....1....GO!! The race had started.

The first runners ran rapidly through the finish getting an outstanding time so congrats! So much cheering echoed along the finish line and before you knew the race was over, with just over 249 people including 21 volunteers-who are very helpful running the event! Well done to everyone taking part and d specially to Cheryl Palmer for her 50th and Jacqueline Robinson for her 150. Also for or 10 first timers- we are looking forward to seeing you next week.

I think park run is a great thing to do for the Duke Of Edinburgh-which is what I'm doing. I would definitely recommend it as your volunteering skill if you haven't picked one yet, the team are so lovely so you would have such a nice time down at Maldon Prom! Or if you want to get out the house for a few hours!

Have a fun weekend, we all hope to see you next week!

Jade Hawes:)"

Event #244 Easter Fun

Yes it’s Easter. It should be Spring, but unfortunately the weather doesn’t know this. But it didn’t stop you, as this week 250 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 31 were first timers (welcome!) and 19 recorded new Personal Bests (well done!). Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by our awesome volunteers and I’d like to thank them again:
Barbara HOBBS • Paul Malcolm DOBSON • Emma VAUGHAN • Alison HUGHES • David MORRIS • Rebecca RICHARDS • Jamie RICHARDS • Imogen GIDDINGS • Jill MCKINNELL • Mark MCKINNELL • William MAHONEY • Alfredo VALADAS MARQUES • Gabrielle BOLAND • Deborah CUTLER • Amanda MORRIS • James SKILLERN • Nic VINCENT • Oliver BRITTER • Jade HAWES

There are several volunteering roles, and hopefully they’ll be a role to suit everyone. Please drop us a line if you are interested in volunteering in the near future.

We celebrate three Prommers getting to 50 parkruns this week; congratulations Mark Wiseby, Martina Byrne and Sharon Hardwicke. Well done!

Here are a few interesting finishing times:
Ollie Livens ran a pallendromic 23:32

Spike Johns was a pallendromic 24:42
