The participants for our 249th event were met with a parched Osterley but everyone did very well dealing with the conditions - perhaps we're used to it now.

Despite the heat we recorded our fourth fastest male runner - congratulations Andrew McCaskill, two new age group records and 44 PBs!

Once again many Gunnersbury parkrunners joined us and we also welcomed tourists from far and wide including Ghana.

A huge thank you to our volunteers - they make parkrun possible, as well as enjoyable and fantastically rewarding for all those who take part each Saturday.

It was another sultry morning up at Osterley, and some 247 people turned up to run our 248th event. With our neighbours, Gunnersbury, on hiatus for a couple of weeks, it was great to see a few of their regulars make an appearance. And we were joined by runners from a whole variety of other parkruns. Two of our visitors, Juno Jenkins and John Kinder set excellent times in the VW75-79 and VM80-84 age groups. We hope you enjoyed your trip to us, and do come back again! Thanks to our photographers - there are some great shots, so thank you!

The summer holidays are approaching and many of you will be off on your travels. If you’re planning to stay closer to home, and perhaps are feeling the heat a little, do please consider whether you could volunteer with us. There are lots of roles, and several can be done before the run, or indeed, afterwards, so please let us know if you can help us out. If everyone who regularly runs Osterley volunteers just three times a year, the roster would be full!

This week 247 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 62 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 21 volunteers, to whom we are very grateful! Thank you so much for giving up your time to help us keep the show on the road.

Osterley parkrun #245 9th June 2018

This weekend at parkruns all over the land we celebrated 70 years of the wonderful NHS #NHS70. Our guest Run Director was super Kay who brought along many of her pals from the excellent midwifery team at the West Middlesex Hospital. We had a record attendance with 281 and the most volunteers ever at 32.
We were joined by 5 members of the 250 club and two new joiners: local parkrun ambassador Carol Moran and Osterley regular Deborah Leavers. Congratulations to both of you - we look forward to seeing you in your new green tshirts soon.
There were other new club members too:
Francisco Joaquim joined the 100 club;
Sushil Bansi, Rick Cannon and James Donovan joined the 50 club;
Scarlett Hall and Fabian Morrison joined the junior 10 club.
Well done to all.
Although they won't receive a special tshirt, two other milestones were achieved with Jasvir Sekhon completing her 200th parkrun and Bob Empson his 150th.

We had visitors from Wimbledon, Beckton, Constantia Greenbelt parkrun (South Africa) and a large group from Fulham who impressed us all with their team stretches afterwards. Local MP Ruth Cadbury ran with us today and after finishing went back to support regular volunteer Phil Clarke. Event director Pete McGovern from Osterley juniors (2km for 4-14 year olds on Sundays at 9am) accompanied his wife Antoinette on her first ever parkrun almost a decade after Pete caught the parkrun bug.

We heard some inspiring stories about the wonderful NHS and saw dentists, nurses, support staff and ambulance crew complete the course before enjoying celebratory cake.

There are numerous photos posted here:

Well done to everyone who joined us, especially to those who came along for the first time. Remember Osterley 10km will be on in the park next Saturday after parkrun, and if you fancy a different 10km run the following Sunday take a look here at the Brentford Challenge http://www.brentfordfccst.com/news-archive/brentford-challenge.aspx

Osterley parkrun #244 2nd June 2018

_DSC0354 A

Saturday morning arrived, Jim had expertly marked out the course, the start line and finish funnel were in place and Louise had completed the new participants briefing so it was time to “get the parkrun started”!

182 runners joggers and walkers lined up for the briefing. The big announcement was that next week – June 9th - Osterley parkrun is proudly celebrating the 70th birthday of the NHS. There will be cake and balloons and everyone is welcome to come along and show their support for a great institution that is close to everyone’s hearts.

As always we like to make mention of those participating in their first ever parkrun so we welcome Mason, Isaac, Francesca, Susan, Bina, Lesley, Joanne and Magdalena. We hope you enjoyed your first taste of parkrun and that you'll be back running with us again soon.

A remarkable number of PBs (25 in all) this week – well done everyone and in particular Osterley regular Catharine McHale whose times have really tumbled since completing the London Marathon.

Yousuf Rana and Steven Daley fought a close battle for first place with Yousuf edging it by six seconds. Steven however scored the highest age grade rating – a very impressive 81.44% well done both.

Regular Rachael Turner sprint finish saw her get in under the 20 minute barrier by 2 seconds – great running Rachel!
As always, none of this would be possible without our volunteers a lovely bunch of people and I wanted to make particular mention of our two youngest volunteers Evie Bale (token support) and Emily Pagnamenta (Marshall support) who wore their h-vis with pride!

See you all next week for the 70th NHS birthday!
