Event # 295 8th December 2018, by David Bell

Battle parkrun 

To the start of parkrun was a battle to put all the parkrun equipment out as it was really windy. But we all got there in the end.  Some of us carried out parkrun maintenance on clearing some leaves and just making the main paths opposite the pond better for running on.

The challenge for the parkrunners was with the wind Battling with the wind. So a very big well done to everyone for running.

Milestone congratulations to Sarah Wilson on her amazing 250th parkrun, Mark Mawson on his 100th, and Alan Salvidge on his 50th, and Andrew Jackson on 150

David J BELL • Graham COOK • Glenn CAMPBELL • Linda DODSWORTH • Rob NEWTON • Judi COLE • Vicky COE • Nigel WILEY • Paul MAUNOURY • Suzie HILTON-BELL • Sarah ROWLAND • Andy GOY • Patricia OSBORNE • Shirley GOY • Jade HARRISON • Trinity Shaw

Last week 177 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers David RANSFORD and George RANSFORD didn't let the strong wind defeat them on completing their very first parkrun, so well done to both of them and hope to see them in the future.  Phill TAYLOR from Bridlington Road runners completed the course in 18:04 Phil Taylor has completed 104 parkruns in total. Joshua TAYLOR also from Bridlington Road Runners completed the course in 18:29 and undertaking 207 parkrun in total.

The Peter Pan team will be taking a well-earned rest on Christmas Day but, if you want an extra parkrun fix, why not travel over to East Park and join Hull parkrun for the day.
The New Year just wouldn't be the same without your early morning alarm call for parkrun. (it is only 4 weeks away)

It is the only day you can run 2 parkruns on the same day (unless you are a time-traveller!).

Humber Bridge parkrun will be holding another New Year Day, making it an excellent opportunity to do a double parkrun, back-to-back on New Year's Day starting at 9am. Then run or Drive down the hill to Peter Pan Park for our parkrun at 10:30 ( Not last years time of 9am)!.

If you still want to volunteer as a Marshal to give encourage and motivate to other parkrunners  - please let us know if you can help peterpanoffice@parkrun.com

Peter Pan parkrun will be celebrating our  300th event on New Years Day.... Do you think we will get even more runners to parkrun?

Plus third scanner..  The Roster for that Tuesday look really healthy, so a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has kindly offered to volunteer for our parkrun.

Event # 294, 24th November 2018, by Rob Newton

Happy Days

Once again the weather was kind to us as we embarked upon Event Number 294 at Peter Pan Park. By our calculations we should be celebrating our 300th event on New Year's Day, which we know will be a busy morning; our parkrun starting at 10.30 following on from the Humber Bridge parkrun at 09.00.

Mike Watson was joined by family and friends as he celebrated his 200th Parkrun this morning (only 50 to go to acquire the much-sought green 250 t-shirt). Mike's daughter Hayley and granddaughters Lily and Emily, and many of Mike's friends including his running club (Kingston upon Hull Athletics Club) were along to run and provide support - as well  as a congratulatory balloon. Janet, Mike's wife, was also offering encouragement from the sideleines. Mike is perhaps one of our most local parkrunners as his house overlooks the park, however his parkruns are not just limited to Peter Pan. Mike's 200 breakdown being :- Peter Pan parkrun (121), Humber Bridge parkrun (41), Hull parkrun (31), Normanby Hall parkrun (2), St Peters parkrun (Sydney, Australia 1), River Oaks parkrun (Oakville, Canada 1), Goole parkrun (1), Beach Strip parkrun (Hamilton, Canada 1), and Sewerby parkrun (1). So you'll notice that Mike has completed a few parkrun trips further afield.

Congratulations also to Callum Manley on his 50th parkrun. Somehow he slipped under our radar. so we'll give him a pre-run mention next week.

At the other end of the scale we welcomed 14 first timers today and hope that this is the start of their parkrun experience with many runs to come. Our visitors included Eddie Oxley and Diane Fisher from Pegwell Bay in Kent, Amy Abethell from Colwick Country Park in Nottinghamshire who was visiting her parents, and Richard Farrow from Hilly Fields in South London.

At the front today was Thomas Smailes, one of our junior runners, recording his first win at Peter Pan in an impressive PB time of 18.03 and as a an 11-14 recorded an age grade of 78.58%. A sprint for the line saw Stuart Spencer just pip Rob Newton for second, with just 1 second between them.

Recording her best time since July 2016 was Sarah Rowland at 23.39, accompanied by KuHAC team mate Rachel Johnson. Also from the KuHAC club, Joanne Osborne crossed the line in 30.04 with a PB improving by an impressive 2 minutes 48. Great running by Matthew Wallis also with a PB of 20.50, improving by 29 seconds. It's great to run with your freinds, which is what Katie Hahn, Rebecca Sellers and Wendy Brown  are doing and crossed the line together to record PBs. Robert Burton was well satisified with his PB today, improving by 55 seconds.

Welcome back to Victoria Briggs and Lorraine Scott - it's always nice to see people return to parkrun after a long break.

Finally, a quick mention of Bob Thomson, our inspirational octegenarian who turns 85 in a few weeks. We hope you've had chance to watch Monday's episode of Island Medics, in which Bob appeared, having suffered a fractured femur whilst running the Shetland Half Marathon. Thankfully Bob was superbly attended to and had an operation which has alllowed him to return to running again. It's episode 6 on the BBC iplayer.

See you again for next week, Event No. 295.
