#Event Number 108
Well it was great to see 214 of you lining up to take part in Poolsbrook event number 108. The conditions were good, a mild and still morning, without doubt perfect conditions for a parkrun.
A big cheer for our lovely volunteers for this week, and it was nice to see some of them trying their hands at a new role:
Alan BROWNE, Marie CLARK, Richard DOWNES, Lucy HAMES, Daniel HARPHAM, Heather HILL, Roger KENCH, Holly MAYOR, Andy MORRIS, Chris PATTISON, Lynne SARGEANT, Ruth SMITH, Paul SMITH, Andrea WALKER, Glenis WILSON
We are a friendly bunch when it comes to volunteers. Please consider joining our team every now and then and helping out if you don't already. The rota for the next few weeks (excluding 28th April) is looking a little threadbare, if you can help then you would be most welcome. Please email us at PoolsbrookHelpers@parkrun or via the facebook page if you can help. If you are considering helping but are uncertain about what is involved then have a chat with us, all the roles are straightforward and we will give you full training. Many of our volunteers comment about it being a rewarding experience.
There was a big crowd gathered round Andy for the first time runners briefing, we had 26 of you here.
A big welcome to the following 18 people completing their first parkrun:
Shane BRIDDON, Jon-Paul HARDING, Andrew LONGDEN, Jack HARPHAM, Matthew HADLEY, Pete NEWBOLD, Sian HASTINGS, Denise NEWBOLD, Alex NEWBOLD, Natalie YOUD, Julie NEWMAN, Francesca LISTER, Deb BEUZEVAL, Diane GUNN, Amelia ARTHUR, Ian BANKS, Natalie TEE, Emily MILLS
Hopefully you all had a great time and return to us next week, or soon after.
And a big welcome to the following 8 tourists visiting us today for the first time:
Daniel IRVING, Kelvin ARA, Rachel IRVING, Emma HICKEY, Carolyn STANLEY, Bill SHEPPARD, Catherine ROWE, Emily PARTRIDGE
We all hope you enjoyed your first time at Poolsbrook, come back and see us again soon please.
Pleasingly we also had some other tourists returning to us, including one from the USA.
No milestones this week unfortunately, but we did have Helen Spencer enjoying a birthday parkrun. Well done Helen, I hope you had a lovely birthday.
It looks like the conditions were indeed good for the run as there was an amazing amount of PB's achieved, 57 in all. Very well done to the following people:
Jason PLATTS, Carl MARTIN, Jim SHAW, Gracie PELL, Laura MOOR, Chris BREEN, Chris NOBLE, Fiona CUNLIFFE, Eluned INNES, Alice ROBERTS, Cheryl SMITH, Adam MARRIOTT, Sonny SHAW, Judith GILLIAT, Kerrie HOLLAND, Stephanie HILL, Richard SPENCER, Chris ROBERTS, Matthew HEAD, Jason FOTIDAR, Pat NAYLOR, Samantha TAYLOR, Sally REVELL, Adam SMALL, Helena GODLEY, Vicky SPARKES, Cindy IRVING, Richard SHIRTCLIFFE, Steven BRIDDON, Chris LACEY, Kevin BIRD, Rachel JONES, Lorna SHEARSTONE, Sean IRVING, Stuart HARDY, Terence WEST, Megan SPENCER, Ellie STENSON, Dean MARRIOTT, Michelle BIRD, Nicola CHAPLEN, Chris STEVENS, Nick HUTCHESON, Allison PREECE, Leanne FEATHERSTONE, Ian WILSON, Janine JONES, Denney LAU, Doris SWIFT, Nichola HEATHCOTE, Jonathan HEATHFIELD, Dawn BROOKS, Craig LOCKETT, Ashley CROW, Alannah BOLTON, Lenka SOCHOR, Michael WARING, Kevin SMITH
As you will know we are a barcode only event. Unfortunately there were 11 unknown athletes this week (there were also 13 in the previous week), typically this means that you did not bring your barcode. Please remember to bring it along in future weeks and then you can track your time and we can also enjoy your progress.
Don't forget that on 28th April the lovely folk from Clowne Road Runners will be doing a takeover and putting on what will be a great event. Please come along and be assured of a warm welcome. Did you see the post from Andy on the FB page ? Why not come along in a red running top to support our lovely hosts for the day? Lets all paint Poolsbrook red.
Parkrun welcomes dogs, although during the run it is one dog on a short leash. This week we unfortunately had an incident in the cafe following parkrun where a young boy was bitten by a dog. If anyone saw anything or knows the owner, can they please email us at email@example.com. Needless to say that dogs should be kept under control at all times before, during and after parkrun. Happily the young boy and his mother will be returning to next week's parkrun.
