Event 107 – 27th June 2015

It was a warm one, glad I was just standing around volunteering really, looking the perspiration on the finishers!

There were 222 parkrunners at Newark this week. In amongst the 28 first timers and 6 tourists were a contingent from Witham Runners and visitors from the land down under. 39 of you grabbed PBs - well done.

We had another missing token in the post run sort out. Please try to make sure you don't walk away with any as it creates work to make up new ones for the following week.

Congratulations go to Gill OXLEY,  Philippa CLARKE,  John MILLER and Kay PETERS as they passed their 50 mark last week.  Jamie MAWER gets a mention too, a Junior runner passing the first 10 run milestone.

Event 105 – 13/6/15

Well we had a good turnout of first timers this week, 33 in total hope you enjoyed your 1st run at Newark parkrun. Conditions weren't too bad for runners but not very good for the volunteers, it's June should be blue skies, big bright sun in the sky, sun tan lotion applied, but, reality... overcast, drizzly and not warm.

Today was drizzly, paper bar-codes get wet they won't scan, we have to record your details in a covered sheet, not easy, it also gets wettish.. parkrun is free but involves volunteers, so lets try and make their lives a little easier.. ranging from £3.69 including VAT & delivery (just over a pint or 175ml glass of wine) you can get 3 printed bar-code tokens that scan even when wet and holds any medical information and contact details for someone if anything should happen to you, hopefully not.. http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/parkrun-barcodes-ra1.aspx  Our volunteers might abject to bending over to scan your bar-code if it's attached to your shoe (although I think this is a brilliant idea) and ask you to balance on one leg whilst lifting the other, but in my book that's better than a "Unknown" on the results.

A big thank you for most of the volunteers from Grantham Running Club and those who stepped in to fill the couple of gaps as it was a big running weekend for GRC.

Regards
Gordon

Event 103 – 30th May 2015

For the last weekend in May, it was rather chilly for the start of event 103, and with a stiff breeze blowing, runners and volunteers alike were keen to get started. We welcomed visitors from as far afield as London, Hull and Colwick, as well as 18 people who were completing their first ever parkrun. We wished Callum Mumby, one of our regular volunteers, a very Happy Birthday and a very successful first run without his mum or dad.

First and second runners to finish were both juniors; Matthew Buchan was first over the line, in 17.37, having run in neck and neck with Thomas Trimble, who finished second in 17.38. Adam Holland, newly returned from his John O’Groats to Land’s End adventures, was third in 17.44. Amongst the women, Marguerita McHugh crossed the line first in 23.57, followed by Ann Kitchen in 24.23 and Lauren Davies in 24.56. There were 57 PBs, including Callum, the birthday boy.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who made today’s run happen, and thanks to everyone who signed up for future weeks – your support is much appreciated.

Next week is our second birthday event and we will be celebrating by having pacers running. If you would like to pace, please drop us a line stating what time you would like to run. If not, then come along and perhaps one of the pacers can help you to a PB too!

Happy running!

Rachel
