Report courtesy of Mark FOSTER
Hello fellow parkrun enthusiasts and welcome to this week’s run report. This week's run report is quite a bit longer than last week's run report. Before beginning this week's run report, could I just thank top parkrun photographer Graham BELL for his fantastic photos of event #224 and for uploading his photos on to Op's Flickr page!
It goes without saying that at 9:00 am on July 14th at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk, the temperature was 20 ̊C, feeling like 20 ̊C, with 79% cloud cover, 64% humidity and a 6 mph south-south-westerly wind. RD Peter was in charge of Op today and, it has to be said, Peter belied his title of Worst Volunteer of the Year 2017/2018 by actually doing a very good job. In addition to the usual pre-run briefing, there was some polite applause as Matt COCHRANE was presented with the Shorts of Shame. Also, just like RD Margaret did last week, RD Peter kept all the 230 runners and one or two of the volunteers impatiently chomping at the bit at the end of his pre-run briefing by forcing them to listen to excerpts from the following poem:
They hit, they knocked and they crushed,
every single brick and every single rock.
their bare hands bled but they did not stop-
Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood,
Through the towers high windows
a group of ants formed at its gates.
But they covered the fortress whole,
and with every falling brick,
proved themselves lions.
The fire of will,
it held their minds
and powered their hearts.
the fire of will,
it surged through their veins;
once ignited, it grew unstoppable,
bound to leave ash in its wake.
The majestic fortress had stood firm;
a mountain, cold and absolute,
defending its might come violent rain or strong wind.
The high towers concealed
the deepest dungeons,
with stone walls seemingly impervious,
and its gateway, tightly shut.
But its majesty soon to wither away,
this great mountain, would soon to succumb
to the swirling winds of change,
picking up the flame that began
right from within.
This fortress would prove itself unworthy,
against a nation’s cry.
For it stood for the tyrant,
the tight shut gates oblivious
to the raging fire.
Among shattered glass,
the crumbling bricks
and the falling walls,
the ancient regime will be left hanging,
only to be crushed under
the boot of reformation.
A cold statue; the tyrant
his vanity; as high as the towers,
any appeal, and every appeal, he stonewalled.
With a head so high up in the clouds,
he could never foresee,
the fatal blow that knocked
him to his knees.
Its majesty now reduced to rubble,
by the simple hands of peasants,
its glorious blocks were crushed,
left to be equal,
to blend into the land's soil.
As the nation rejoiced to see,
the once mighty façade now under their feet,
is this a revolt? No sire,
for the flags have been raised,
picked up by lasting winds of change,
and the blood of the nation imprinted
deep into the rubble,
to forever remain in the roots of the land,
to forever mark its glory,
for this is a revolution.

Thanks to all our fantastic volunteers today! Thanks to Karen and Matt for pacing today! Thanks to Izobel BERRY (JW10) for tail walking today! Thanks to Toby FARRER (JM10) for barcode scanning today! Well done to all the 230 parkrunners today!
Congratulations to Jonathan HILEY (SM30-34), who crossed the line at Op for the first time today with a stunning time of 16:37 (78.23%)! Jonathan has run in a total of five parkruns, spread out over nearly six years. Jonathan has finished first at Dulwich, Pennington Flash and York parkruns and his FpT to date of 16:10 (79.79%) was recorded on his way to finishing first at event #40 of Dulwich parkrun.
In order to finish first today, Jonathan had to see off the determined challenge of multiple first-finisher Jamie RUTHERFORD (SM25-29) of Liverpool RC, who finished just two seconds behind Jonathan with an age-graded score of 77.48%! Jamie has run 22 of his 42 parkruns here at Op and he has been the first to finish here on ten occasions. I shouldn’t really be telling you this, but Jamie is the only male runner to have finished first at more than two consecutive Op events, having finished first at events #129, #130 and #131. Jamie recorded his current PB here of 16:36 (77.71%) not so long ago in fact at event #219. You would be forgiven for thinking that this is Jamie’s fastest parkrun time to date but it isn’t. Jamie’s fastest parkrun time to date of 16:32 (78.02%) was recorded on his way to finishing first at event #168 of Croxteth Hall parkrun. As luck would have it, Jamie has run 15 times at Croxteth Hall parkrun, where coincidentally he has been the first to finish on eight occasions. Jamie has also finished first at Brockwell parkrun, Herne Hill and Southport parkrun. Jamie finished second overall at this year’s Southport half-marathon with a very fast time. Congratulations to Jamie on his silver medals!
Not wanting to upset the apple-cart, today’s male bronze medallist Mark WYNNE (VM40-44) of LPSH recorded the every high age-graded score of 82.97% for his time of 16:50! Mark has run 20 of his 29 parkruns here at Op and he has been the first to finish here on 9 occasions. Mark’s PB here of 16:36 (82.83%) tops the VM40-44 category at t’ moment and it is currently his fastest parkrun time to date. Mark recorded his highest anne-girdled score to date today. Mark has run nine times at Princes parkrun, where he has been the first to finish on two occasions. Congratulations to Mark on his bronze medal today!
Two-time first-finisher Ian ROBERTS (VM35-39) of LPSH just missed out on the medals this week, despite recording the very respectable time of 18:13 (73.28%). Congratulations to one-time first-finisher Mike GALL (VM35-39) of LPSH, who strained every sinew and used every trick in the book to cross the line with a new PB of 18:32 (71.13%)! Mike knocked one second off his old PB today! Congratulations to Adam SIMPKIN (SM30-34) on his new PB of 18:58 (68.80%)! Adam recorded his FpT to date of 18:30 (70.27%) at event #119 of Croxteth Hall parkrun. Congratulations to Damien GILL (SM30-34), who continued his rise up the rankings here at Op by recording yet another new PB of 19:04 (68.44%)!
Our VM55-59 category topper Tony HARVEY (VM55-59) recorded the very high age-graded score of 79.16% for his time of 19:45. Well done to Tony on his very high age-graded score! Elite junior parkunner Se LOUGHLIN (JM11-14) put in another terrific performance to claim the tenth top ten male position with a time of 19:51 (71.45%)!
Lookin’-for-some-hot-stuff performances by all these male athletes!
Congratulations to first-timer at Op Rebecca SARGEANT (SW25-29) of Penny Lane Striders, who was this week’s female gold medallist with a time of 22:21 (66.22%)! Rebecca has run in a total of 25 parkruns so far. She has run 16 times at Princes parkrun, where her highest gender position thus far is second. Rebecca has run four times at Widnes parkrun, where she was the first female at event #92 and where her current PB and FpT to date is 21:11 (69.87%). Rebecca has also run four times at Croxteth Hall parkrun. Rebecca is a keen supporter of NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac and she never misses a home game.
Congratulations to Laura GRACE (VW40-44), who finished in her highest gender position thus far of second with a new PB of 23:29 (66.00%)! Laura has run all of her 15 parkruns here at Op and she recorded her fourth PB today. Laura first ran at event #78 with a time of 26:29.
Congratulations to Op stalwart Sal EDGAR (VW40-44), who was this week’s female bronze medallist with a time of 23:32 (65.86%)! Sal has run all of her 69 parkruns here at Op and she was the first female to finish way back at event #221, if you remember. Sal first ran at event #101 with a time of 29:30 and she then went on to record five PBs in her next five runs. Sal has so far recorded 12 PBs, culminating in her current PB of 23:22 (65.83%). Sal recorded her second fastest parkrun time to date of 23:24 and her highest age-graded score to date of 66.24% last week at event #223.
Congratulations to Natasha CARR-SYCHEVA (SW25-29), who finished in her joint highest gender position of fourth today with a new PB of 23:57 (61.80%)! The hot weather didn’t stop Angela DOLAN (VW40-44) crossing the line with a time of 24:20 (62.88%), that’s for sure! Angela was the first female to finish at event #109 of Crosby parkrun. Joanna JONES (VW50-54) took just 24 minutes and twenty seconds to record an age-graded score of 68.83% today. Congratulations to our VW70-74 category topper Karen FALOON (VW70-74) of Barnet & District AC, who set a new age-graded score record 88.42% and recorded a new VW70-74 record of 25:11! Sensational running from Karen today! (Please see the token-sorted scores section below for more details on Karen’s parkrun career.) World famous parkrunners Shona TAYLOR (VW50-54) of Wigan Harriers, Nicola HAYES (VW40-44) of SBH and Charlotte CHAPPELL (VW40-44) were the next three females to cross the line this week with times of 25:18 (69.70%), 25:38 (60.01%) and 26:01 (60.03%).

Thanks for reading this week’s run report!
Enjoy the rest of the week and we look forward to seeing you all next time!
Following this event our current participant to volunteer ratio stands at 9.2% for the previous four weeks. This gives us a red rating. As all parkrun events rely on non-runners and runners giving up some of their time in order for them to take place, for our parkrun we'd like our rating to be in the green ▲ i.e. be above 15%.
If you could volunteer at any of our future events please let us know by contacting our awesome Volunteer Co-ordinator who will fit you in on the roster. The majority of our roles are very easy to do so please don't worry about being thrown in at the deep end
Are you are a budding photographer wishing to hone your skills? Then why not offer to be our official photographer for an upcoming event? All you need do is contact us at our office and you've got the job!
Please note that as we are a public event photographs may be taken at multiple places on the course by various people at any time. If you see any singular images of yourself/dependants appearing on our social media outlets, or on our flickr photo pool and you wish for them to be removed please contact our office.
Duke Of Edinburgh's Awards [D of E]
parkrun is no longer an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, but we still welcome those wishing to do their D of E physical/volunteering requirement with us. Please note our available places are limited, so prospective candidates may have to join a waiting list.
Currently there are no D of E candidates registered with us. If you'd like to volunteer your time as part of your Bronze/Silver/Gold award requirements please contact our office.
Please remember to bring your personal barcode with you to every parkrun event - if you do not you will not get your finishing time recorded. Laminate them if possible to protect them from rain, better still why not purchase a more durable barcode by visiting The ID Band Company, who are official suppliers of barcodes to parkrun.
parkrun/UKA insurance stipulates ALL juniors listed in the JM10 or JW10 categories (i.e. all children 10 or under) MUST run with a PARENT, GUARDIAN or other DESIGNATED ADULT at all times around the course. Failure to do so may result in the child's time being withheld. Note - if there'll be no nearby legitimate matching surname in the results please let the barcode scanning team know on the day, or contact us as soon as possible later, to avoid this happening.
Please do not take the finish tokens home with you as we need them again for the next event. If you do find one in the washing later even if the event was a while ago, please let our office know. We'll be pleased to have it back again to join its friends. Thanks.
Where's My Result?
We want you to enjoy our parkrun and to go home after the event with a result. If, following your run, you do not appear in the results, it's most likely due to your not having presented your athlete barcode (see Personal Barcode above) to the Barcode Scanning Team. If you did but you still do not appear, it could be because of an infringement ranging from but not limited to:
- not completing the full course
- failing to keep to the course path at all times
- being a junior in the U11 category appearing to be running alone
- being inconsiderate to another parkrunner, volunteer or other third-party
Sorry, but fair play is a parkrun participation course requirement.
