Penrose parkrun #205 16/02/2019

This was my first week as run director and it went smoothly.

We had tourists from various parts of the country including Oxford and Hertfordshire.

It was Esther Parker's 50th parkrun and she had a balloon to celebrate this achievement! It was also Stuart Smith's 50th but he kept that very quiet!

Many thanks to everyone for coming along today and supporting me in my Duke of Edinburgh volunteering!

Penrose parkrun Event # 203 2nd February 2019

A pretty cold damp parkrun this morning and there were a good number of cold fingers going about. That said, the rain held off for most of the actual event. We had fewer runners, partly because of a major endurance event, the Arc, involving a good number of regulars running at the same time and partly due to the weather. That said, a couple of nearby parkruns were cancelled, so we probably did better than we would have. The volunteers did a cracking job, despite the conditions. Thanks to Dean Evans for stepping in at short notice as Liz Prady is not well, hope you are on the mend Liz. Jane Cannon and Anne Betteridge completed their 50th parkrun today and kindly made a donation to Penrose, thanks girls! We had one first timer, brave lad.

This week 166 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

Penrose parkrun #202 26th January 2019

A rather damp parkrun today but still a good number of runners braving the drizzle and it could've been a whole lot worse.  We had a few first timers today including Vicky, who told me she had never done any sort of run before, let alone a parkrun so well done to you Vicky.  We had a sprinkling of visitors but I think the Peak District pipped the others to the furthest travelled accolade.

Today we had a couple of milestone runs - Jules Lewis with his 100th parkrun and Luke Bennett with his 50th.  Thanks to Jules for the bananas and chocolates and well done both on your milestones.  Whilst browsing the results I see we have a good handful of our local parkrunners, including Yvonne, on 99 so there will be a few 100 celebrations over the next couple of weeks I expect.

Thankyou to today's volunteers who were Alun, Dean, Marie, James, Jenny, Di P, Di W, Evie, Mick, Oliver, Claire, Jess and even Ian, our reluctant Funnel Manager!!  Thanks also to John Telford and Rachel Flannagan who have stepped in at short notice to fill a couple of gaps for next week.

I'll be back in a couple of weeks, see you then. All today's stats are below.

Penrose parkrun #201 19th January 2019

A cold and wet morning turned into perfect running conditions (I am reliably informed)  with a clear, crisp and bright parkrun bringing a good handful of pb's.  It was also regular Penrose volunteer/runner Neil Hams birthday, and whilst I did give a somewhat crackly shout out during the run briefing her's another..."Happy birthday Neil!"

Thanks to the volunteers today, and a special mention to Diane Warren who guessed the closet number of runners in the weekly "guess the total number of finish parkrunners" game...this is what we fill our time with as you guys are off enjoying the beautiful Penrose Estate!

Here's your stats, see you soon
