Penrose parkrun #181 15/09/18

Mega thanks to Alverton Surgery for the takeover today - all went smoothly!  We're looking forward to parkrun being prescribed instead of medication under the new parkrun practice initiative.

 

Superb performance from Emma Paull being first across the line and chicking all those men!

 

Please remember that under 11s MUST run with the same 18+ adult for the duration of the parkrun.  If they are running with someone with a different surname then let the Run Director know so that we can tie them up in the results.

 

See you all next week!

Penrose parkrun 08/09/18 #180

Guest report writer this week!  Many thanks to Mark Pinney from Stevenage parkrun for today's report.

 

As a parkrun tourist I arrived in Cornwall late on Friday evening, specifically wanting to do the UK's most south-westerley course for my 100th parkrun. It took a mammoth 5 hours to drive from Kings Langley (near Watford) to get to the hotel and a further hour in the morning, but it was well worth the effort.

A rather grey parkrunday to start with, but that didn't dampen anyone's parkrun enthusiasm. I arrived early and introduced myself to Liz Prady (our Run Director for the day). Without Liz and her amazing team of Volunteers (Simon BAKER, Verity BATEMAN, Janna EYRE, Derrick FRANTZ, Clare HUGHES, Chris HUGHES, Andrea HUNT, Anna LOGAN, Marianne MOSS, Shane ORCHARD, Finn PERHAM, Mark PINNEY, Jess WHITEHOUSE, Lucy YEOMANS) we wouldn't have been able to run, so a big thank you to them all for volunteering and ensuring we had a well organised and safe run.

Liz very kindly mentioned it was my 100th parkrun during the briefing, and then it was off to the start. Some of you may have noticed me with a GoPro on my head as I like to video all of my parkruns and put them on YouTube, so please have a look and see if you can spot yourself.

We went for breakfast at the cafe afterwards and met Craig MCCARTHY who was doing his first parkrun since moving back to the UK from France. Craig has already got the bug and is looking forward to being a regular runner at Penrose.

On to the stats....

This week we had 224 runners, joggers and walkers. 26 UNKNOWNSs (don't forget your barcode next week), 95 Female and 103 Male.

Top 3 Males were Justin THOMAS in a superb time of 16:59, Steven WHERRY in 17:52 and James WILLIAMS in a new PB of 18:06. Top 3 Females were Abbie MILNES in 18:46 (smashing her previous PB by well over a minute!), Emma MOSSOP in 20:49 and Charlotte BENNETT in 21:32.

There were an astonishing 40 parkrunners who were new to Penrose, of whom 15 were doing their first ever parkrun. So well done to you all and we hope to see you back next week.

The "most runniest runner" was Andrew PANTELI on 204 parkruns, but there were 14 other members of the 100 Club and 28 members of the 50 Club. Only two milestones were achieved today: Kelly ROUND joined the 50 Club, and I joined the 100 Club.

The 101st finisher today was Alan JONES who has run at Penrose more often than anyone else, an amazing 149 times out of a possible 180. Well done Alan, that's commitment!!

Other news....

We now have two excellent parkrun podcasts available each week. "Free Weekly Timed" is the offical parkrun podcast with Vassos Alexander and Louise Ayling. We also have "With Me Now" with Danny Norman and Nicola Forwood which is an independent parkrun-based podcast (some of you may remember Danny and Nicola from the much loved "The parkrun Show"). I thoroughly recommend them both.

Penrose parkrun would like to announce that we had 2 wedding parties running today.

Bekka Peake and Gareth Joseph along with about 20 guests ran today, even though both of them are carrying injuries. They were off to Helston Registry Office right after parkrun, to do the legal part of their wedding, dressed in their running kit. Later this afternoon they are having a full ceremony in formal wedding attire on the cliff top at Porthleven. Bekka and Gareth's home parkrun is Burgess parkrun,  South London.

Cat Gordon whose home parkrun is Plym Valley, along with her hen party also ran today. Cat and her bridegroom Mark Horton, who had his stag party in Berlin,  are getting married on 29th September. I definitely think Cat had the best idea, hen party and parkrun, what could be better.

Penrose parkrun would like to offer Bekka and Gareth, Cat and Mark, congratulations and a very happy married life. Sorry we couldn't make the sun shine for you today.

What a brilliant turnout today with appearance of the lovely Helen Glover and baby Logan. Helen is a 2 times olympic gold medalist in 2012 and 2016 in the coxless pairs along with Heather Stanning and kindly offered to be our '#team parkrun' tail walker. Lots of people got to talk to her and meet baby Logan and lots of photos and selfies were taken. Thank you so much Helen for your time and patience.

Penrose parkrun Event number 177 – 18th August 2018

The sun made a very welcome appearance this week after a soggy parkrun the previous Saturday. We had runners from far and wide including Eastbourne, Kingston Upon Thames, Bedgebury, LIncoln, Aldershot, Whetherby and Watford...but furthest traveled prize contenders were runners from Malaysia and Australia with our Australian parkrunners pipping them to the post by a narrow 3000 or so miles (thanks google!)

We also had a lovely bunch of runners and a posse of fellow park run volunteers/Run Directors from Cassiobury parkrun who enjoyed our course and from the sounds of it are well on their way to completing the much treasured A-Z of parkruns!

This weeks parkrun also saw 2 Penrose regulars achieving milestone runs with Teresa P completing her 50th parkrun and Neil H completing his 100th! There were a few others who I've notice on the results too so massive well done to you all!

Finally, before that stats everyone is waiting for I just wanted to take the opportunity to remind people of some park run 'rules' that help the event run smoothly: Park run is not a race, as in we are all there due to our love of getting out in the outdoors and walking, jogging or running 5k each Saturday. At the risk of sounding cheesy the only person we are competing with is ourselves so we ask participants to be mindful of this and be considerate to others. With that in mind we need to be aware that we share the beautiful Penrose Estate with a variety of people including dog walkers, horse riders, bike riders etc so please extend that courtesy to them. And finally, please only go through the finish funnel if you have completed park run and do not go through the finish funnel twice! Moan over!

Lastly thank you to this weeks awesome volunteers, and a special shout out to Di P who won the ever catchily named 'guess the correct number of runners sweepstake'!

This week 287 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 91 were first timers and 48 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 50 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 13 volunteers:

Diane PHILLIPS • Marie KAY • Diane WARREN • Laura MILLWARD • Janna EYRE • Lucy YEOMANS • Derrick FRANTZ • Mick RANDALL • Hayley ORCHARD • Gillian COOKE • Craig TONKIN • Finn PERHAM • Marianne MOSS
