Christmas Parkrun 2017

We will be hosting a Christmas Day parkrun at 9am with Mark as your RD. As ever we rely on lots of you volunteering to make this a safe and fun festive pre over indulgence parkrun. Fancy dress is as ever strongly recommended.

If you won't be in Northampton on Christmas day, check here nearer the time for local parkruns that will be hosting a Christmas day parkrun! http://www.parkrun.org.uk/christmas-compendium/

We will also be hosting a New Year's Day parkrun at 9am with Lizzie and Hattie as your RDs. However if you can't quite make it that early on New Year's Day, or if you're looking to run a double parkrun to start your year, make sure to check the above link for other parkruns which will be running at slightly later times!

 

Northampton parkrun 251- 18th February 2017- the busiest one yet!

Mark and crew did a semi miraculous job today, where did you all come from? When you look at the results you will see that every result from position 518 will have a time of 52 minutes- we know this is just a starting point! Technical issues meant we were unable to take times from this point onwards. So:

  • if you finished in position 518- 545 please accept out apologies
  • if you finished in position 518-545 and have an accurate time of your run please email it too us northamptonoffice@parkrun.com no later than Wednesday 22.2.17
  • we will take all these times and improve all the results around them by Friday
  • if you do not want a time at all let us know and we will make you an unknown in the results
  • full cash refunds on your entry will be available ;)
  • if you haven't done so before, we would love you to volunteer so you can experience what goes into making Northampton parkrun each week
  • we do have a solution for next time......

Happy Running
Helen

Northampton parkrun 224 and the Umbrella Fair set up

Please help spread the word: this parkrunday 20th August we are sharing the park with the team setting up for the fabulous Umbrella Fair. See: https://www.facebook.com/UmbrellaFair/?fref=ts

Their planned vehicle access will be along Leicester Street then alongside our runners to the Barrack Road entrance area where the vehicles will then be stewarded across the running route we use. This is the part of the park around the Dragon play area. We need to have runners to the left on this bit of path- this will be especially important when 2nd lappers are going round 1st lappers. We will also all need to keep an eye out for any other vehicles that enter the park by another route in error. As ever, runners and volunteers safety is the most important thing and we will appreciate everyone's vigilance and as many marshals as we can muster. Thanks Helen

(I was hoping to add a map/ image but I can't at the moment!- if you have access to our facebook site the image is on there)
