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!

Event 67 – 6th September

This week runners from the Grantham Running Club ‘took-over’ the parkrun, enabling some of the regular volunteers a chance to run. The team were all a little nervous doing this for the first time and not wanting to let you the runners down, but after the briefing where a lot more comfortable. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are already talking of another “take-over”.

GRC Newark ParkRun Volunteers 05092014

The weather was just perfect for running. 167 people set off running, jogging, fast walking and walking, the sweep walker was provided with a dog (Paddy) to accompany her around the course at the last minute.

There were 11 first timers at the parkrun with another 5 runners having their first Newark parkrun. Unfortunately 9 runners did not have their barcode with them so were not recorded, but it’s the taking part that counts, just remember them next time please. 33 of you must have been very pleased with yourselves when your result email arrived informing you of your “New PB”.

Special mention to Fiona Whittingham & John Combie who chalked up their 50th parkrun, congratulations!

Nigel Watkin was the first home in 19:13 and Sophie Stanley was the first woman home in a time of 23:49.

Well done to everyone who ran.
