Penrose parkrun #116 – 24th June 2017

Bit of a damp and drizzly parkrun today but still a decent turnout of hardy souls!! 163 runners tackled today's parkrun with 44 first timers which is brilliant, when I asked if there were any first timers dozens of hands shot up so welcome to parkrun you lot, see you all again soon hopefully. We also had a lot of tourists this week from various places, the ones I can remember are Manchester, Winchester and Chichester but lots of others too. Diane brought friends over from Germany so I think they were the farthest travelled. We also welcomed Clive again, he's a Run Director from Conwy parkrun in North Wales, back down on holiday for his first run on our new flatter course, see you again next year Clive!!

The best story of today has to be the five runners from Pennington Flash parkrun, near Manchester, James, Gareth, Stuart, John & Phil. They are on the first day of a cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats and started off very early this morning to cycle to Penrose, do the parkrun and then carry on up through Cornwall. They're aiming to get to John O'Groats in two weeks time, taking in another parkrun next Saturday. The best bit is that these guys all know each other originally from doing parkrun and from there have started to take on these other challenges. From all of us at Penrose good luck on the ride, look forward to hearing how it goes!!!

Today ran like clockwork, it's nice when that happens!! It's all down to the volunteers and today we had the A-Team, including Edie-May barcode scanning and her brother Seb tailrunning, proving that it's never too early to start being a parkrun volunteer!! So on that note, thanks to all today's volunteers who were Robert, Liz, Janna, Derrick, Tom, Mick, Edie-May, Seb, Kelly, Matt, Eoin, Sue and Diane. Derrick, Robert and Di have all volunteered to fill next week's vacant positions so thanks for that guys, Janna will have an A-Team next week too!!! There are still lots of vacant volunteering positions for the rest of July so please take a look and see if you can help, especially if you've not volunteered before.

That's it from me, all the stats from today are below, see you in a couple of weeks.

Penrose parkrun #115 – 17th June 2017

What a fantastic day for today's parkrun, clear blue skies, sun shining brightly and at 9am it was already hot, hot, hot!! 228 runners today with the usual smattering of tourists and first timers. Today marked George Andrews 100th parkrun, the day before his birthday too so well done and happy birthday to George.

We also had visitors from Bristol here for a wedding and had the groom, best man and various family members running, alas the bride was chilling at home and getting ready for her big day. So well done to Steve Speak on his wedding day, dressed as a chicken too - I notice his parkrun pb is 17.40 so safe to the say the chicken costume and possibly wedding nerves slowed him down a bit.

I'd like to say a big thankyou to today's volunteers, without whom the parkrun couldn't happen. So thanks go to Stuart F, Andrea, Tom, Wiebke, Keith, Shane, Diane, Mick, Emma, Sue, Rachel and Stuart T. There are still various volunteering spots available for July so please get in touch via email if you can help out, especially if you haven't done it before and are a regular parkrunner.

I'll be back with you again next week, see you then, hopefully still in the sunshine. Today's stats are below.
