Event 111 – 25/7/15

The rain held off and the sun was out but there was a fair breeze. We had a big contingent of first timers to Newark, 26 in all and 20 of those were new to parkrun. We had tourists from Wimbledon - a couple up for their friends wedding (one of whom has just past the 250 mark last week!) and Holland.

Another of our stalwart volunteers received special mention from Bob this week. Alan Robinson, our 'professional' timekeeper, has ratcheted up enough volunteering to get two purple t-shirts! Thank you Alan.

If you hadn't noticed, Jon Rawson has his arm in a sling from a broken collar bone so he has been helping us out on the volunteering side. With one hand he has been pointing the way as a marshal and clapping - with the help of a small plastic clapper. Well this week you may have seen the hand clapper mark 2, the next generation. The jury is still out as to how annoying/uplifting it is! ;-)

Funnel Management
On a more serious note, I think we need to re-iterate the funnel procedures as we had some confusion this week and as a result your times may be slightly out, apologies if they are.
When a runner goes through the funnel, they are timed by the two timekeepers and then given a parkrun barcode. This barcode is then scanned along with their own personal barcode. The timekeeper record is matched to the scan record to give the end results. If you don't want your time recording (e.g. not having completed 3 laps or having been through once already and running back through to support someone else) then please DO NOT enter the funnel. Simply stay on the path otherwise this can potentially knock out all the runners times meaning that it is not just yourselves that you are affecting. If you do enter the funnel please take a token and give it the barcode scanner and ask them to make a note of your position and tell them you do not want a time.

Thanks

Brian

Event 110 – 18th July 15

Event 110 - 18th July 2015!

parkrunners arrived to a cool and sunny Newark parkrun, maybe a little breezy, but on the whole good running/jogging weather. There were quite a few first timers today and a long distance tourist from Mexico running. Three parkrunners were proudly wearing their 25 volunteer shirt and cards signed by regular parkrunners were present to Rachel Sheldrake, Brian Thompson and Louise Carter.

218 runners took part and 1st home was Adam Holland in a time of 16:51 and the 1st lady was Carrier Knight in a time of 20:56. Thank you to everyone as we had no missing position tokens this week.

There were 10 runners this week that had left their personal barcode at home, why not order your personal barcode, includes emergency contact details and any medical information from http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/, there is quite a range of choice.

For regular parkrunners there is now a parkrun application available on google store "My 5k Run Results" which provides you with details of you runs and any volunteering you have done.

Event 109

Event number 109 brought our first ever home-grown ‘100 club’ runner. Gill Flye was presented with a beautiful card signed by many of the regulars – the card was adorned with a wonderful painting of Gill running up the steps! Congratulations Gill! The event also brought some more unwelcome visitors who were extremely attracted to the marshalls high-vis jackets and any runners wearing yellow. Thanks to Rushcliffe parkrun for letting us know that these little visitors were indeed pollen beetles. Never before have the marshalls been so keen to get those jackets off!

227 runners completed the course, with Andrew Powell first over the line in 18.41 and Natalie Smith, a first-timer, first woman in 21.52. Well done to them both, and to everyone who crossed the line.

Don’t forget that if you have completed 50 runs or volunteered at least 25 times, or you are a junior who has completed at least 10 runs, your parkrun t-shirt may now be ready to order. Look at your parkrun profile ‘club progress’ section and this will tell you whether you can order now, or will be able to order soon. You can access your profile via the weekly newsletter or via the email you received when you first signed up. We look forward to seeing a sea of red, white and purple very soon!

Happy running!

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
