Penrose parkrun #141 – 16th December 2017

A very chilly start to the day today, I never really got warm after putting the signs out and standing around in my wellies but at least it was dry and the sun shone. There were 166 runners today with a few visitors from Manchester, Bournemouth & Canterbury, I think a few of our regular runners must have been busy with their Christmas shopping!

Don't forget we have our fancy dress parkrun next Saturday and a special Christmas Day parkrun too, santa hats and more fancy dress welcomed! We will also be collecting for Helston Foodbank so any items for that would be appreciated.

Thanks to all today's volunteers who were Liz, Kate, Janna, Di P, Charlie, Mick, Jo, Ewan, Rachel and Stuart. Big thanks to Ian Matthews who stepped in to do some barcode scanning after his run. And also thanks to Mick and Jill for the choccies, yum yum!!

Penrose parkrun #138 25th November 2017

Penrose parkrun
Event number 138
25th November 2017

Flipping cold whilst checking the course this morning and an amazing number of squirrels. One of them obviously had a death wish and ran out right in front of my bike.

A really good number of runners of all ages this week including quite a few young children. It's fantastic to encourage the little ones and parkrun is a fantastic place for this to happen. Having said that it is important that their responsible adult understands that if the child didn't complete the whole course, they mustn't go through the finish funnel. One parent thought I was being mean to a 7 year old, but it really isn't fair to other children some of whom are only 5, who have completed the whole route. Everyone who goes through the funnel has a time and a finish position, anyone who has only completed part of the route must go around the funnel. We love to give lots of encouragement to all ages.

Penrose parkrun #137 – 18th November 2017

A chilly start to the day today and by the time I came back from putting the signs out I'd lost all feeling in my feet!! However, once the sun came up it turned into a beautiful morning for the 210 runners and one pasty at Penrose today. We had a smattering of first timers and visitors including Daniel Pebody who gave Sarah Pepper a run for her money with both their dogs absolutely raring to go off the start line. Sarah posted a PB before she travels out to the Canicross World Championships later today so good luck to her!

We must say a huge good luck to one of our Run Directors, Janna, who trialled her pasty costume ahead of tomorrow's Cornish Marathon which she is running in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. She ran a great time despite the unwieldy costume and will probably be glad of more cold weather tomorrow as it got slightly warm inside that pasty!!

I must also say a personal thankyou to Yvonne, Mick and Di P who brought donations to the Rescue Dogs Charity collection 2017. If anyone else has any items of dog food or toys that they'd like to donate I can collect it up and it will all be handed out two weeks before Christmas to several dog rescue centres around Cornwall and Devon.

Big thank you to today's volunteers who braved the chill, I think the time has come for hats, gloves, wellies and lots of layers if you're in a volunteering role. So thanks to Derrick, Amanda, James, Andy, Abby, Di P, Di W, Mick, Mark, Stuart and Claire. I'll see you all again on the 16th.
