Penrose parkrun #194 – 15th December 2018

Well, what a wet and wild parkrun it was this morning.  Considering the weather we had a good turnout of 110 runners but again had to finish on the path due to the field being completely waterlogged and boggy.

We had a couple of first timers today and seemingly a lone tourist who was from Lincoln.  Unfortunately I had a senior moment and didn't do a shout out for milestone runs, just when it was Giles Newcombe's 100th parkrun.  I managed a quick shout out as he finished and will make sure he gets a proper cheer for his 101st next week, well done to you Giles.

Just a quick reminder that it's our fancy dress parkrun next Saturday and we will also be collecting for the foodbank, all donations gratefully received.

I'd like to say a big thank you to today's hardy volunteers, who were Peter, Jon, Derrick, Gillian, Alan J, Alan P, Mick, Evie, Jess, Craig and a last minute addition Oliver who did a splendid job of barcode scanning for the first time.  Everyone was way out on the finishing number sweepstake so I galloped to victory this week by adopting the tactic of choosing the number higher than all the other guesses!!

All the stats are below, see you all again next week, I'll be the Christmas tree holding the watch!!!

Penrose parkrun Event #193 – 8th December 2018

A blustery Saturday morning combined with another local race meant we had a slightly quieter parkrun this week.  We did however have a number of parkrun tourists, our hardy locals plus a special 13th Birthday parkrun for Penrose regular Hamish - racking up his 30th parkrun in the process too!  After the run toady there was much talk of the weird and wonderful  Christmas fancy dress outfits people have in store for our event on the 22nd of December.  Cant wait to see this!

A massive thank you to our volunteers this week who braved the damp and windy conditions with a smile on their faces!

Thats all from me, see the lovely stats below:

Penrose parkrun 1st December #192

Saturday was a little murky to start but turned out to be perfect running weather (as I was informed by many a park runner at the finish!).  This week we welcomed a few first timers plus the Mounts Bay Harriers beginners group celebrated the end of their training programme by joining us for their first 5k.  They looked the part in their lovely hi vis orange t shirts too!

Due to the finish field being very waterlogged we moved the finish to the main path however with a bit of luck and some dryer weather this week we will be back on the field as usual next week.

I'd like to give the volunteers this week an extra special 'shout out' as everyone worked so well together and made the morning go like a breeze, a real 'dream team'!  And James wins the glory of guessing the closest number of finishers too!

Heres the stats, see you again next week
