Run report 75

The weather was great, the sun was shining down on us, our numbers were up on last week, with 75 taking part.

Charlie did an excellent job as Run Director with his inspiring speech at the start! Short but sweet.

Today was all about the youngsters, we had Maddy P helping Charlie set everyone off, Sienna M helping with the tokens, after running one lap with her Grandad, Emma C was 12 yesterday and ran her 12th parkrun today. We also had Sam C finish 8th overall and new PB’s for Max H, Ryan W, Isaac Q and Joshua. It’s lovely to see so many youngsters running with their Mum’s or Dad’s and beating them!

We had a few runners not registered and coming in the top 5, make sure you register to make your runs count and start earning those T shirts!!

Safe travels to Ian and Ali as they spent the next 4 weeks in Australia.

Well done to everyone who took part today and many thanks to all our volunteers.

Nobles parkrun Event #67 – 16th March 2019

Guest run report for 16th March 2019
Event #67
by Fran Upshon
Home parkrun: Ashton Court

I had been feeling quite confident about writing this run report, until the RD informed me that he had written nearly all of the other 66 run reports. Eek! I have rather big shoes to fill, so here goes...

My first visit to Nobles parkrun was rather wet and windy, however, being a tourist it didn’t put me off. The RD had informed us first timers that for the last 4 weeks it had been raining, but the rain had stopped just in time for parkrun. Not this week though! Especially as I had only brought my road running shoes with me - not ideal considering the first part of the course is on an uphill grassy section that was quite boggy - and we had to run this part 3 times!

The course itself was 2 figure of eight laps, plus a tiny bit extra, and there was so much to look at along the route the miles seemed to fly by. We ran past football pitches, outdoor exercise equipment, through some tennis courts (I’ve never done that on a parkrun before), past a children’s play area, round what looked like a small motorhome campsite, then up past a cafe and the TT grandstand to take us back to the start.

Despite the weather, there were 54 runners this week. Five of which braved the wet and windy conditions to complete their first ever parkrun! Well done to you all, I hope you’re looking forward to returning sometime soon. Three parkrunners also achieved brand new PBs! The most popular finishing times were 25:xx with 8 finishers, 26:xx with 7 finishers and 30:xx with 6 finishers. In fact just over half of you finished in the 6 minutes between 25:00 and 30:59.

Nobles parkrun enjoys sharing their course with visiting parkrunners, they even have a tourist book you can fill in with some comments. I did attempt to fill this in, but with cold hands and rain dropping onto the page, I’m not sure that my handwriting was very legible! I was visiting today from Ashton Court parkrun. Coincidentally, Jessica Thornton was also visiting from Ashton Court and Nick Bear was visiting from Cheltenham. There were also quite a few tourists from Northern Island. John Holmes from Antrim parkrun, Lorraine Craig from Ecos parkrun, Ballymena and David and Jennifer Patterson were visiting from Portrush parkrun.

A big thank you to all the volunteers for helping us start our Saturday with a parkrun. You did a great job this week considering the awful weather, particularly as this was the last practice run before Ian and Ali go off on holiday for a month! If you’ve never volunteered at parkrun before, why not give it a try?

Nobles parkrun Event #66 – 9th March 2019

Luck was on our side once again....just!

The wet weather that we have endured all week eased and finally stopped just as our wonderful volunteers arrived at 08:30
The luck! It started raining just as close down was completed.

Thankyou to all those who have put themselves forward to help in the coming weeks in our absence, and to try new roles, and once again assisted massively this week.
The roster is filling well, if you can assist in any role which now includes Run Report writer lol, please shout.

http://www.parkrun.org.uk/nobles/futureroster/

Some of you have noticed a few additional bits of kit appearing of late - the introduction of rope etc and have asked what we do to acquire our old and new kit, so.....
As part of the original outlay we receive a choice of basic kit to start our event, as we did in October 2017 - this included posts, tape, cones, basic signage, laptop, scanners, timers etc. If this kit fails over time then it is down to us to replace or to add things such as the loadspeaker and rope, plus other options such as birthday trophies.
Our next purchase! We hope to get our our parkrun selfie frame, an example shown below

Selfie frame

So how do buy additional kit - the formal parkrun way is to donate to our webpage (http://www.parkrun.org.uk/nobles/aboutus/). As it explains, a small portion of each donation goes to support new events across the UK. I am pleased to say that, as pictured below shows, we have now got enough to order our frame....woohoo - watch this space! Data from www.wiki.parkrun.com

Donations

As you can also see, from above, we have broken through the 1200 registered runners / participants...….well done all.
And how is that 1200 split?
Well, take a look, below is the demographic split for you all - an impressive mix of ages.

Demographic

So this coming Saturday will be mine and Ali's last one for a month, god! What will we do!
We will be handing everything over to the team
So please give them your full support …..we know you will

See you Saturday

Nobles parkrun Event #65 – 2nd March 2019

Afternoon parkrun family

We were lucky again this week, avoiding the worst of the weather - roll on Summer eh!

Another good turn out this week, beating last years sub 30 numbers lol

Thankyou to all those generous peeps that have been assisting over the last few weeks, in preparation for covering our lazy backsides when we abscond on holiday, learning new roles and taking on new challenges. Anyone keen to take on the challenge in April please do shout - potential Run Directors out there????????

We've been a little lax in regard to our Visitors Book over the last few weeks, but ensured this week that visitors were at the heart of our event.

We said a big 'hi' to Cass Castleton (a very nearly perfect Island surname) who arrived with us for his 335th parkrun, and to add 'N' to his parkrun Alphabet challenge ( for those who have never heard of it, its to get all 26 letters covered by a parkrun with that letter). Cass is also well known for being the only parkrunners thus far, including founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt, to have run an event in ALL the countries currently participating in parkrun worldwide. Cass is pictured here with fellow visitor and volunteer Dennis Lancaster....plus the cakes they generously supplied

2-3-19 Visitors

Dennis wasn't our only visiting volunteer this week, Tailwalker Elanor Kennedy joined us from the Emerald Isle representing Celbridge AC, making sure partner Donal Gilman completed the course for his 70th event (both pictured below)

And we cant miss the opportunity to say a belated Happy Birthday to our own parkrun regular Peter Duchars….pictured
