Penrose parkrun
Event number 109
29th April 2017

It appears that we had a problem with some of our results today. It seems that despite a barcode scanner beeping at both the barcode and finish token, some people's times weren't recorded. I have had a number of people contact me and I have entered them manually. If you find you weren't given a result and you position is down as unknown, contact me and I will enter you.

This week 261 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 62 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

Saturday, 6 May 2017 – Penrose parkrun cancelled!

Due to Flora Day there will be no parkrun on Saturday, 6 May 2017!

Hopefully any tourists will see this message but I will be sitting on the granite block in the amenity area just in case anyone turns up!

Try some parkrun tourism either at Trelissick or Lanhydrock.  Or if you want to go further afield in Cornwall try Mount Edgcumbe!

 

 

Penrose parkrun #108 – 22nd April 2017

250 runners at Penrose today with a smattering of first timers and parkrun tourists.  Our furthest travelled were Tony & Carol Royle & Murray Little over from the Sunshine Coast north of Brisbane.  They're sampling various parkruns around the country so it was lovely to welcome them to Penrose.

As our parkrun gets busier the challenges for the volunteers have grown and to that end we have obtained a third barcode scanner.  Thanks to Ruth Glover for stepping in at short notice yesterday to man the scanner, it was a bit temperamental but hopefully in the long run this will make the process a bit quicker.  Also a big thankyou to Bill Hill visiting from Bury St Edmonds who stepped up straight after his run and volunteered to help with the finish tokens, another hectic job now that our numbers have grown. Thanks very much Bill, your help was much appreciated.

There were quite a few people today without barcodes or barcodes on phones so just a quick reminder to print out your barcode and bring it along, or you can get a wristband which is a useful way of keeping your barcode. Unfortunately, no barcode no time!!

So, finally a big thank you to this weeks volunteers including Emily Harvey, surely our youngest volunteer, Tail Running with her Mum Ceri. Thanks also to the ever present Mick & Sue, Diane P, Janna, Diane W, Scott, Derrick, Ruth, Bill & Tom.  Also thanks to Yvonne for the photos.

I'm busy for all the Saturdays in May but I'll see you all again in June.  Happy parkrunning!!  All today's stats are below.
