Event 74 – 25th October 2014

A great day weather wise, as can be seen. This week was run entirely by Newark Striders, although one Notfaster couldn't resist the temptation for a photo bombing opportunity - Adam! :)

We had a good number of first timers again not least from White Watch who man the Fire Station just up the road. They were gobsmacked that we had reached 73 parkruns without them noticing and they hope to be a more permanent fixture going forwards (might bring in a few more ladies...)

Congratulations to Helen McLaughlin for reaching her 50 parkruns this week and also to the 37 of you who managed PB's!

We also had some rising talent in the form of Ben Smith, a first timer from Newark AC came in at 20:16, position 6 and is under 14! He looks like one to keep an eye on going forward!

Volunteering over the next few weeks remains a challenge, so if you are interested in seeing another side to parkrun and to meet different people (and other parkrunners) then please get in touch at newarkhelpers@parkrun.com

See you next week,

Event 73 – 18th October 2014

A lovely warm October morning greeted the 173 of you that took part in parkrun this week – almost felt like summer. We had 17 first timers and 23 of you got personal best times – well done. We had tourists from Hinkley and York.

Congratulations to Jeff Taylor for reaching 50 parkruns - t-shirt to follow.

Photo: All systems (and runners) are go... have a good run!

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

New volunteers are always welcome. We have had to fill spaces at the last minute for past couple of weeks so if you can help please get in touch here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/newark/futureroster/. It is good fun and it’s a chance to give something back.

If you volunteer and can’t make it for some reason please let the run director know by text or email as soon as you can.

Thanks

Jerry

Event 72 – 11th October 2014

It was a glorious autumn morning for event 72 - clear and crisp, with little wind. Lots of regulars were notably absent due to the start of the cross country season and the 'Run or Dye' event in Nottingham, but there was still a good turn out of 160.

Simon Daniel ran a PB of 19.00 and was first to finish - he celebrated with a very impressive forward roll over the line. James McBain was in second place, with a time of 19.14, and in third place was Jennifer McBain, also the first lady, in 19.16. Second lady was Nancy Britten, and third Gill Oxley.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who made the event happen today - we couldn't do it without you!

A polite request to all runners (in fact two polite requests!):

* if you took home finish token number 45, please could you return it as soon as possible. Thanks.

* if you are not running the full course, or you are just running into the finish to keep someone company, please don't cross the finish line. It plays havoc with our timing. Thank you!

Happy running

Event 71 – 4th October

Autumn had well and truly set in at Sconce and Devon park on Saturday as our team of volunteers arrived. Grey clouds and a light drizzle greeted the volunteers as they began to set out the course. As the pre run brief commenced the skies began to get darker and darker, we just managed to get the T-shirts presented and get the runners started before the heavens opened!!

181 of you joined us to celebrate 10 years of parkrun! We were also joined by 18 first timers and had visitors from Leeds, Sheffield and Sydney. We hope you all enjoyed your visit to Newark parkrun and we hope you didn't get too wet.

Well done to Adam Holland who was our first male across the line and to Lynsey Carveth the first female. 31 of you managed to achieve PB's in the rather wet conditions, well done and for those of you that didn't quite make it there is always next week....

A special mention must go to the volunteers who give up their time to ensure that Newark parkrun runs swiftly and safely each week. We do have a few gaps on the roster for up and coming weeks and we would love to have you on board. If you are interested in volunteering please look on the volunteering page of our website and get in touch via email.

Kind regards

Fiona

Event 70 – 27th September 2014

There was the biggest turnout for a while at event 70, partly due to the cancellation of Lincoln parkrun. Numbers were also boosted by sevral tourists - from Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Bedford and North Yorkshire to name a few. Conditions were great for running - cool and overcast, with little wind. This led to PBs for many, including some of our regulars.

First over the line was Adam Holland, in a time of 16.50, followed by Martin Waite nearly two minutes later, and an unknown runner in third. First lady was Sarah High, closely followed by Daisy Homes, a junior, and Lyndsay Dungworth. 184 runners completed the course in all.

A special thanks must be given to Witham Runners, who provided many of the volunteers, including Allegra, aged 18 months, who helped give out tokens on the finish line. Thank you Allegra! parkrun is run entirely by volunteers - if you would like to volunteer, please sign up via the website, or put your name down with the barcode scanners after your run.

Unfortunately we lost some more finish tokens today. Whoever finished in positions 117, 156 and 167 did not come to get their tokens scanned, and took the tokens home. If that was you, please could you return them as soon as possible. Thank you.

Happy running!
