Montrose parkrun Event number 63 on 29th September 2018

We had a new record of 10 pacers this week. We also had 30 PB's so we hope they helped a few of you round.The wind played havoc with a few of our signs so we apologised if this sent any of you the wrong way! Joys of a coastal parkrun!

A special well done to Karen Adams and Rich Ballantyne. Karen has been chasing a sub 30 min time since she started parkrun and she smashed it with a new PB of 29.33. Well done Karen! Nothing like a public announcement to put the pressure on!

Rich currently has a broken ankle but being the fitness fanatic that he is decided to come along and try and pace 45 minutes today whilst on crutches. He was 'slightly' off, but major kudos for the effort Rich! 42713287_2068042843507103_1858197547412094976_n

Montrose parkrun #62 Montvélo CC Takeover

A bright but rather breezy morning awaited us this week and we certainly felt a cooler air than of recent weeks, so we were very grateful that the team from Montvelo CC brought their cosy gazebo with them for their takeover of Montrose parkrun, they also brought cake and drinks which went down well.

20180922_092453

They have sent in the following run report.

This Saturday, Montvelo CC took over the Montrose parkrun to allow the volunteers who do this every week a well deserved day off and the chance to take part in their own event.

Thankfully everything went well and under the watchful eye of Sam Redpath a bunch of cyclists managed to maintain order and ensure everyone went home with a time logged and hopefully happy to get a sweetie and bit of cake at the end. (runners don't seem as keen on cake as cyclists it must be said, it's pretty much the main reason we go out for a pedal.

Setup

On behalf of Montvélo CC I would like to say a thank you to the parkrun for trusting us to host your event and it's great to see a bit of community involvement between groups and to see everyone having a blether after the run.

I am sure we will be back another time to give the regulars a day off, maybe when it's a bit warmer though and hopefully some of the runners will be interested to come and give the cycling a go. We have a beginners ride planned for the 7th October, which is perfect for anyone to come along and see the club at a gentle pace without being surrounded by seasoned cyclists

There are also runs every Sunday at 8:00 and Wednesday nights at 18:30 leaving from Lidl, which anyone is more than welcome to come along to, to get a taste for club rides.

Anyone who picked up a flyer and decides to join the club following Saturday's takeover can obtain membership which will run to March 2020, so basically 18 months for the price of 12!

We are also in the process of organising Montrose's 1st ever Cyclcocross race "Mo Cross" which will take place on the 16th December at the East Links, entry is now open and there are full details on the website. This promises to be an exciting event the likes of which have never been seen in the town with close racing and a great atmosphere. Entry on the day is free for spectators, so please come along, grab a cowbell and make some noise.

If anyone would like more info, do not hesitate to contact the club via our Facebook Page or email montvelocc@hotmail.com

Thanks again.

Montvélo CC

Montrose parkrun Event number 61 on 15th September 2018

It's that time of the week again with the run report and stats but first a little fun. This week we have a young lady who reached her 10th run at the same time as her mum achieved her 25 volunteer. We also had a young man who reached his 10th run and we are very proud of them both for their achievements.

We would also like to introduce our newest run director (in training) Jamie Kinghorn. Jamie has been dipping his toes in all the pots that is Montrose parkrun since inception and we have a lot to be grateful to him for. Recently Jamie was able to secure a £500 donation from GSK to Montrose parkrun. We are hoping to use it to fix up our storage facilities that the Roselea FC has discussed donating to us. Jamie as you can see from his picture was flying high this Saturday. Not only did Jamie come home to collect the first finisher but as you can see from his T-shirt he also completed the Great North Run half marathon, I hope I have all that correct. Please welcome Jamie to our team and be kind to him as he starts to take on his new role.
One happy bunny

This week 104 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.
