15th November 2014 – #77

We were lucky – no rain – just fog. It was a cool and a bit damp – so good running conditions.

We can tell the cold weather is coming in as a number of people started a bit late including someone who ran the course with 2 right foot trainers – well done Mark!

We had another good turnout today with 126 people taking part. Our only visitor was from South Manchester. We had 5 first timers and an amazing 28 people got personal best times.

Thanks to all our volunteers this week including a couple of people who were first time volunteers. Everyone was feeling the cold by the end of the event but it all went like clockwork as usual. We are short of volunteers for the next few weeks so please volunteer if you can - just get in touch at newarkhelpers@parkrun.com .

A huge thanks must go out to all our volunteers who did a fantastic job ensuring that parkrun runs so smoothly!  This week ended up being cold and wet, so they deserve a huge amount of praise. 

As per the Run Brief, we have 150 plus runners most weeks, with over 1,000 individuals registered at Newark parkrun and 600 plus following us on Facebook.  We do have a few gaps in the rosters for November and December and we would really welcome your support. If you are able to give up a an hour or two on a Saturday morning to help us out please have a look at the volunteering page on the website and get in touch by e-mailing newarkoffice@parkrun,com

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! :)

If you want any more information on Newark Striders visit www.newarkstriders.co.uk

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,

 

Brian

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
