Event 102 – 23rd May 2015

The runners and volunteers were greeted at Sconce & Devon park by a cool breeze and sunshine for event 102, some might say perfect running conditions.

The team of volunteers quickly set up the course ready for the 189 runners that took part in the event. Well done to you all and an extra well done to those that managed to get PB's (56 of you in fact) and for those that didn't there is always next week!!!

I would like to give a special mention to the volunteers this week as many of them stepped in last minute on Thursday evening when the roster was still very short. If you can help us out in future events please get in touch via email, social media or come along and speak to the hi-vis team on Saturday morning. Remember parkrun would not happen without the volunteers!

Don't forget 6th June is our 2nd Anniversary event! - If you would like to be a pacer please get in touch and we will add you to the list.. We hope you will all be joining us for the celebration event, don't forget to bring some cake!!!

Kind regards

Fiona

Event 101 – 16th May 2015

A bright morning with a cool breeze greeted everyone for our 101st event. An amazing 209 people took part and we had 26 first timers this week. We had visitors from Scunthorpe and Chester.

Incredibly 59 people achieved a new personal best – which is over a quarter of everyone who took part. Well done.

3 people achieved there 50 parkrun events - they were Keith Measures, Oakley Took and Karen Borrill - congratulations.

Thanks again to all the volunteers this week - special mention to Jon who volunteered whilst still recovering from his very recent John O'Groats to Lands End cycle ride - I think the ride in the wheel barrow ride helped his sore knees.

Event 100! – 9th May 2015

Hope you were able to make use of our week off to take in a spot of parkrun tourism. It may have meant a parkrun PB since the Newark course is a good 30 seconds slower (those pesky steps!). If you did catch any of the civil war re-enactment on the Sconce or Castle, it was an awesome sight.

Great to come back this week though to what was our 100th, yes 100th(!) Newark parkrun and see you all in the red, white and black colours that celebrate the parkrun milestones. There was one other dominant colour and that was provided by Newark Striders who manned the volunteer positions and added more than a splash of orange out in the field (the Striders had had a social evening the night before so there were a few thick heads to add to the mix, hopefully no-one noticed).

Well done to all.

Thanks,

Brian.

Event 99 – 25th April 2015

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!
Rachel

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
