Milton Keynes parkrun event number 287 22nd August 2015

This week there were 464 runners out enjoying the awesome Summer sunshine. Slightly too warm for some but still 36 recorded new Personal Bests.

36 runners were first timers either visiting our parkrun as tourists such as both our first and second placed males Michael KAZER and Adam BARLOW or running parkrun for the first time. Either way welcome and hope you enjoyed our course.

Representatives of 26 different athletics clubs took part with visitors from far and wide including Ebbw Vale RC, Gade Valley Harriers and Yorkshire Wolds Runners.

Thanks to this week's volunteers

See our volunteer page for details on getting involved in making Milton Keynes parkrun happen.

We are very short of marshalls next week so if you can help out with that or any other roles/weeks then please get in touch with the role and weekend you can look after.

MIlton Keynes parkrun is cancelled the week of the 5th September as the Parks Trust are replacing the bridge between the two lakes. Plenty of other parkruns in the local area so let us know where you are going. Please check the parkrun is being held before travelling.

Congratulations to the two runners that hit their 50th run milestones Keith GENTRY and Stephane CARPENTER and a special mention to Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos RAMÍREZ who was running his 272nd run! Remember the only way to hit these sort of numbers is to drag yourself out of bed on a Saturday morning and bring your barcode! Each week we have loads of people either forget their barcodes or supply a soggy disintegrated paper barcode that can’t be scanned. Our rules are simple - no barcode - no result - no exceptions no matter who you are.

Finally, we have our roving reporter family being kept busy with this from Adam Downton:

As Pippa is not feeling well today Adam took the role of reporter for her.

parkrun Report

Interviewed today was Paul Hindley

How many parkruns have you done so far?
I have run 32, including today, in my Redway Runners T-shirt.

What do you like about parkrun?
The social atmosphere of everyone in parkrun. It's really good to talk to different people each week.

Favourite running weather?
Slight drizzle because it's nice and cool but not wet enough to slow me down.

Do you have a running hero?
David Morecroft - he was the first runner I saw that broke world records in his time.

Do you have any running goals?
To run 50 parkruns before I am 50 but I am RUNNING out of time. hahaha
(only 18 left to go though Paul)

(My favourite question to ask) What animal would you run parkrun as?
Probably an elephant because then I wouldn't have to worry about slower people in front of me. They would have to get out the way. Ha ha

Are you a parkrun tourist?
Yes - I have travelled to Aylesbury and done their one. It is my favourite tourist parkrun because it is nice and flat and also it's the only other parkrun I have done.

Thank you Paul - It was good to interview you

We now know that if you want to avoid a few hills then why not travel to Aylesbury for a nice flat run in a nice countryside park.

Milton Keynes parkrun event number 286 15th August 2015

This week we had 467 runners. Bit of a drop recently as we were hitting 600+ a couple of months ago but I think it is a bit more manageable with less people, especially at the start line. Martin Lawrence started us off the second week running with the countdown from 10 on a glorious sunny morning. Anyone that ran yesterday will appreciate running in the sun today! Next week sees the return of Gareth Snelson as run director.

There were 38 first timers either as parkrun tourists or as complete newbies. Welcome to you all and let us know how you got on today. Special mention to some of our higher run tourists such as Helen LETTS on 99 runs and Georgina Alice LETTS on 62 runs, both from Sedgefield Harriers.

75 recorded new Personal Bests. It seemed relatively easy to get a pb when you are first starting out at parkrun but after a while it can seem quite a struggle so congratulations to Tim GIFFEN who managed a pb today on his 158th run. It has been a while Tim so well done!

Representatives of 23 different athletics clubs took part including some new club visitors including Eye Community Runners, Harpenden Arrows Running Club and Wynnum Running Group.

Huge thanks to volunteers as always. Our heroes this week were:

Andrew CHILCRAFT  •  Andrew DODDS  •  Anne HULLY  •  Becca WINWOOD  •  Ben MULLAN  •  Carol WEBBER  •  Chris RICHARDS  •  Danny MORRIS  •  David COOPER  •  David HUDSON  •  David ROSE  •  Deborah BOTTOMLEY  •  Elizabeth TRIBE  •  Gillian SHEPPARD  •  Helen BLUCHER-ALTONA  •  Jacqui BROAD  •  Jenny FENTON  •  Kerry COOPER  •  Kevin CHURCH  •  Lauren POLLOCK  •  Martin LAWRENCE  •  Michael WATSON  •  Mike WEBBER  •  Neil HIGSON  •  Neville ROWLES  •  Patrick MARSHALL  •  Richard WARDMAN  •  Sheralyn WHATLEY  •  Sinead BRADBEER  •  Stuart SULLIVAN  •  Sue MCINTOSH  •  Tim MACKLEY  •  William SHIPPIN

We are always short of volunteers so please email in to help us keep your local parkrun going. I hope you all know the route next week and don’t mind a massive queue for scanning as currently we have hardly any marshalls and just the one barcode scanner volunteer. You may have make your times up as well as we have no timer or back-up timer! Looking through the points table we have plenty of people who have run most weeks and yet are still to volunteer. Please take your turn volunteering so others can run. We have the same faces that help our each week.

No runners hit their T shirt milestones this week which I do believe is a first however we have loads of runners on 49 and 99 so next week could be a special occasion for many of you. I am not keen on doughnuts but any other cake is fine. Just saying!

Great photo this morning of the MK Lakeside runners group prior to the run this morning. Not sure what the award was?

Milton Keynes parkrun event number 285 8th August 2015

This week we had 472 finishers in the gorgeous Summer sunshine. Martin Lawrence, our run director for the day, kicked us off with a countdown from 10 and we were away up towards the canal. Great to see the start line now confirmed as behind the two posts between the trees.

We had some really enthusiastic marshalls out on the course. It certainly helps getting some encouragement so please keep it up marshalls!

There was 64 pb’s including recent Birthday girl Julie Martin with her first parkrun pb since March last year. Well done Julie.

We had 55 first timers being either completely new to parkrun or tourists visiting MK for the first time. Hope you enjoyed our course, let us know how you got on.

Representatives of 26 different athletics clubs took part.

Huge thanks to this week’s volunteers:

Alison RUTHERFORD  •  Annette KRAFT  •  Ben MULLAN  •  Carl FURNESS  •  Debra ANDREWS  •  Elizabeth TRIBE  •  Helen BLUCHER-ALTONA  •  Ian PENNICOTT  •  Jen BATES  •  Karen LAWRENCE  •  Kath CRAWLEY  •  Kevin WILLIAMSON  •  Layla MORRISON  •  Leigh STEERE  •  Linda PRICE  •  Lucy RICHARDS  •  Lynda MURRAY  •  Maree Blossom JESSON  •  Martin LAWRENCE  •  Mick BATES  •  Neville ROWLES  •  Peter CRAWLEY  •  Rosalind CRAWLEY  •  William SHIPPIN  •  William SNELL

See our volunteer page for details on getting involved in making Milton Keynes parkrun happen.

Remember the only way we can continue to have an MK parkrun each week is if we all volunteer. All we ask is that everyone takes their turn and volunteers at least three time a year. Not much to ask for a free timed run each week is it? We are really short of volunteers over the coming weeks so just email in with the role and date you can cover.

Congratulations to those that hit their T shirt milestones this week:

10 Daniel HELM

50 Thomas INCHLEY, Sarah LAMBERT and Mark BLUNDELL

Adults have to wait till 50 to get their first T shirt, the 10 is for juniors only. Go onto the Wiggle site from the link on your parkrun homepage to order your T shirt.

Great to see a bit of colour this morning! Well done Kerry, David and Dennis!

See our volunteer page for details on getting involved in making Milton Keynes parkrun happen.

We have an introduction now to one of our new run directors in the shape of Fiona Siequien. This is her story:

What got you into running/parkrun?

I started running in 2009 when I realised after changing jobs that I wasn't moving around as much and losing fitness. I started off the same as everyone else - a few minutes running, several minutes walking and gradually built it up. I only discovered parkrun in 2013 when I moved back to MK and joined MK Lakeside running club.

How many parkruns have you done and what do you enjoy about it?

I've run 29 so far. I love that it caters for everyone of all abilities, providing an accessible way to get moving more.

Why volunteer and is there a specific reason you wanted to help with run director?

I first volunteered to give back to the running community - without volunteers parkrun can't happen. I have got more involved because I find it really rewarding. It's great meeting new people, cheering all the runners on (especially those who are completing their first ever 5k), and there is a real sense of community spirit.

What will you bring to the event in terms of style/skills?

My style is friendly and approachable and through work I've gained experience in managing large teams of people and dealing with incidents as they arise - hopefully I can navigate Saturday mornings successfully and with a smile!

Cheers for that Fiona. Fiona’s first stint as run director is on the 29th August so please be kind to her!

Milton Keynes parkrun Event number 278 20th June 2015

This week we had a small dip in numbers, with only 474 finishers. Looking back at the stats, that would have been a record attendance as recently as March last year. Just shows how large our event is these days. A record attendance next week would require 657 runners.

It seems the Milton Keynes running scene really is thriving. We have several thriving running clubs, a huge number of people attending our 5k parkrun, and then this morning (Sunday 21st) our 'Little Sibling' MK junior parkrun launched with the largest ever attendance for a junior inaugural event! I think runners are spoilt here with a huge network of segregated paths, and a large number of lakes, woods, rivers and a canal to run at.

We welcomed some tourists this morning, including from Aylesbury, Heaton, Brueton, Bromley, and Longrun Meadow! Apologies to the two runners from Longrun that did exactly that and took a slightly more creative route around the course, though I am glad you still enjoyed your run (and I think your deviation only added 0.06 of a mile to the route!). To clarify, after crossing the short wooden bridge between the lakes, runners stick to the hard path and go under the road bridge to go round the south lake and head to the finish, rather than taking the soft path towards the stone circle.

This week we have a fantastic team of volunteers to thank. The event all went really smoothly, which is a run director's delight. I'd like to offer my personal thanks from writing the run report as I didn't catch a lot of you following the run to thank you.

Debra ANDREWS, Keith ARMOUR, Sinead BRADBEER, Steve BURLACE, Heather CECIL, Andrew CHILCRAFT, Brigitte COX, Rosalind CRAWLEY, Sam DOWNTON, Martin DOWNTON, Adam DOWNTON, Joey GARNER, Malcolm KIDBY, Ivan MOSTYN-SCOTT, Ben MULLAN, Maria PERALTA, Sean POLLOCK, Lauren POLLOCK, Chris RICHARDS, Ian ROPKE, William SHIPPIN, Jean-Paul SRIVALSAN, Leigh STEERE, Dianne VON HAGEN, Len VORALIA, Helen WIGGINS

Finally, I'd like to congratulate those that achieved t-shirt milestones during the run.

Tony DAGLISH

Obviously a special mention goes to Tony for being the second person to begin their parkrun career at MK to reach the milestone. He's sent me a summary of his journey to 250, posted below:

OK, so here goes for a parkrun statistic roundup from me. I started my 1st parkrun at MK parkrun no. 2, and finished in 13th in a time of 22.09 on 23rd January 2010. Since then I have done 152 at MK. I have done 69 different parkrun venues to date and have revisited 13 different ones. My PB at MK is 18.44 on the 3rd March last year. I have clocked up four first finishes at Buckingham, Barking, Upton Court and Pymmes. Five 2nd places at Conkers, Milton Keynes, Grovelands, Gunpowder and Bedfont Lakes, and seven 3rd place finishes at Walthamstow, Harlow, Luton, Banbury, Newbury, Oak Hill and St Albans. My official PB is at Wolverhampton in 18.22. My previous slowest was 31.37 at Milton Keynes, the reason for that was my 100th parkrun, and I ran with the lovely Ami Gardner as a change to the normal racing. Today was my new slowest parkrun but also one of my most enjoyable. My favourite parkruns apart from Milton Keynes are Wycombe Rye, St Albans, Cambridge, Basildon, South Shields, and Oak Hill as it has the best looking run director there in Rebecca Bunting. One of my fave moments of parkrun memories was finishing over the line with Rebecca, as well as running around MK with Ami Gardner and of course first finishing the parkruns I have done so far. In that time I have have joined the Redway Runners and made lots and lots of great running friends and improved my running in all my distances because of parkrun. Again I would like to say a big big big thank you to Gareth Snelson for getting me out of bed for the last 5+ years to run around a park. And thanks to Geoff New for all the different parkruns with our tourist group for the good times we have had and more to come in the future. parkrun changed my way of running for the better, as I may not have met some fantastic friends along the way.

Tony

Thanks very much Tony for sending that in.
