Event 60 – 19th July 2015

The team of Volunteers arrived at the park to drizzle and grey skies, fortunately for us the drizzle stopped in time to set up the course for another Newark parkrun!! The volunteers did a fantastic job as usual setting up the course ready for our runners to descend at 9am. There are still some gaps on the roster for the next month if you interested in getting involved please follow the link and send us an email with your preferred position.

153 runners joined the team of volunteers for event 60, 18 of them were first timers to Newark. We hope all the first timers enjoyed Newark parkrun and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Well done to the 28 of you that managed to gain PB's and to those of you that didn't quite manage a PB this week... There is always next week!!!

Kind regards

Event 59 – Another Course Record

Newark parkrun no 59 was held in glorious sunshine - perhaps the warmest day of the year so far? This (and the cancellation of Lincoln parkrun) resulted in a field of 213 runners and a new course record too.

Alastair Watson of Notts AC stormed around in 15:51, smashing the previous record of 16:06. Well done Alastair! Tomas Tresnak was second home in 18:24 and Dean Houlton third in 19:10.

First woman was Molly Warbuton from Lincoln in 24:40; this was her first run at Newark, and an impressive one for someone in the JW10 age group. Second lady was Lyndsay Dungworth in 25:52 and third Jackie Duers in 25:57.

Thank you to all todays volunteers; we rely on volunteers to keep parkrun running, so if you would like to volunteer, please sign up via the parkrun website.

We noticed today that a number of runners had brought their barcode numbers handwritten on pieces of paper. Could we please remind runners that we need the actual barcodes themselves so that they can be scanned? Thank you.

Happy running

Event 58 – Viva La France!

On the same day at Le Tour set off in Yorkshire, we had our own French visit with a parkrun tourist all the way from Lyon, while another visited from a little closer to home in Stevenage (pictured below).

In total there were 147 runners, of whom 24 were first timers and 32 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different athletics clubs took part.  With Adam Holland was the first over the line in a new PB of 16:48 and has now lead the field at 27 of the 33 times he has run.  Daniel Williams was second over the line in a time of 19:26, closely followed by Martin WAITE of Newark AC in 19:32.

A huge thanks goes out to all the volunteers, who set up the course in the damp, wet weather and cheered all the runners round the course.

Until next time, happy running!

Event 57 – 28th June 2014

We had another great attendance for our parkrun event with 178 people taking part. The weather forecast didn't look too promising but on the day it was cloudy and cool - great running conditions - with 61 of you getting Personal Bests!

We had 37 juniors taking part which is great to see and we presented Olivia and Cameron Henderson with their 10 T-Shirts - well done!

Thanks again to the volunteers that helped out and thanks to Adam Holland who completed his run and then helped out with the barcode scanning.

With summer holidays and lots of summer events it is difficult to get volunteers to help with parkrun. If you can help please get in touch here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/newark/futureroster/ It's good fun and a chance to give something back!

As an update on the contributions to the defibrillator our anniversary parkrun raised £305. The total required has nearly been reached and we understand that it will be installed between the cafe and the football field.

Regards

Event 55 – 14th June 2014

As the team of  parkrun volunteers arrived at the park to set up the course they were faced with a slight challenge. A local Football Club were holding a football tournament due to start at 9am! Unfortunately we were only made aware of this the day before which left little time to make changes to the course.... In true Newark parkrun style our volunteers took it in their stride, set up the course making a couple of changes to ensure that the course was still safe to run and by 8:40am we were ready to go!

To all 169 of you that took part on Saturday,  thank you for persevering with the last minute changes. We hope the slight course alteration didn't cause too much inconvenience. Well done to the 53 of you that managed to gain PB's and well done to our first Lady and Gent over the line, Jessica Gordon and Nigel Watkin!

We were also joined by 11 first timers, we hope that you enjoyed your first Newark parkrun experience and look forward to seeing you again soon.

As mentioned in the pre run brief we are still short of volunteers over the next few weeks, if you would like to have a go at volunteering please have a look at the roster by following this link  http://www.parkrun.org.uk/newark/futureroster/ and email in with your preferred position. Please remember that without the volunteers parkrun would not be able to take place every week!

We look forward to seeing you all at the same time next week.

Kind regards
