Event 99

Despite some forecasting rain, event 99 took place on a bright, if rather breezy morning. There was a good turnout of people running for the first time, and tourists from as far away as Harrogate and St Andrews. Adam Holland was first over the line in a time of 17.14, a whole minute faster than his first place the previous week, and more than a minute and a half ahead of William Parkin in second place. Daniel Williams was third. Amongst the women, Gill Oxley crossed the line first in 24.46, followed by Louise Knapton Carter in second and Della Money in third. First junior over the line was Rory Harrison in 26.01.
Many thanks go to all of the volunteers who made today’s event possible.
We would like to remind you that there is no Newark parkrun on Saturday 2nd May; this is due to the Civil War re-enactment taking place in Sconce Park. We return to the park on Saturday 9th May for our 100th event. Newark Striders will be taking over the volunteer roster, and we are asking all runners to wear the parkrun colours of red, black and white to celebrate this special event.
Happy running!

Event 98 – 18th April 2015

Well, what a difference a week makes. The weather conditions were perfect and all that winter training must be starting to pay off as a staggering 54 of you posted PBs, that's a THIRD of the field running faster than they have ever run the course before!! A huge WELL DONE! This is even more impressive given we are in the thick of race season with parkrunners supposedly needing to taper or take it easier but probably thinking 'just what can I do now' :)

The sunshine also brought out 13 first timers and a tourist from Dorking. I did forget to thank the volunteers in the run brief, but those out on the course marshalling or covering the obstacles at the start never get to hear it anyway which make it all the more gratifying when parkrunners themselves pass on their thanks to the marshalls.

Don't forget, 2nd May is cancelled due to Civil War re-enactment and the week after that is the 100th Newark parkrun! So come in black, if possible.

Thanks,

Brian

Event 97 – 11th April 2015

After a week of lovely spring weather, it felt like winter had come back  on Saturday morning as the volunteers arrived at the park. The team were greeted by wind and rain as they started to set the course up for the runners!

The winter weather didn't stop 138 of you that turned out to complete Newark parkrun though. We even had some first timers and some tourists from London and Manchester. Well done everyone that took part and well done to those that managed to get PB's!

We must give a big thank you to the volunteers that braved the winter weather to support event 96 on Saturday, if you would like to volunteer at future events please get in touch via the parkrun website. We have a couple of spaces in the roster for next week and lots of gaps for mid/late May.

We look forward to seeing you all again next weekend (I promise I will order in some spring weather).

Kind regards

Fiona
