Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 22 April 2017 Run Report

After yesterday’s downpour we were expecting to be greeted by a muddy course for today’s Prudhoe Riverside parkrun, but the sun had other ideas, and by 9am, things had dried out nicely.

With several eleventh-hour offers from volunteers, we were also well-equipped with smiling marshals, cheering on the 149 runners who joined us this morning.

We cannot say this often enough: we can only keep our parkrun going through the wonderful people who give up their Saturday lie-in to help us out. If you can help next Saturday (or any Saturday), please email us at prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com, with your parkrun barcode number (and tell us if there’s a particular volunteer role you’d like to do).

Our thanks this week go to: Helen Boaden, Howard and Jane Buckingham, Samantha Day, Melanie Elliott, Kay French, Richard Heslop, Brendon Jackson, Maxine J Lewis, Joanne Lucking, Jane Morton, Kay and Paul Myerscough, Luke and Karen Page, Mel Reed, Paul Robinson, Micky Shore, Jenni Whittaker, Kenneth Wright and Ashleigh Young.

We welcomed 26 Prudhoe Riverside first timers today, with eight of you running your first ever parkrun, and 48 runners recording new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part, and we welcomed parkrun tourists Kevin McCann and Jeanette Davies, whose home parkrun is Croxteth Hall, Liverpool. Hope you both enjoyed the change of scenery!

And finally, to Michael O’Donovan, whose home parkrun is Durham. Michael ran the first ever Prudhoe Riverside parkrun last November, and returned today to run his 200th parkrun with us. Congratulations Michael; 200 might not get you the next milestone t-shirt, but it definitely gets you a run report mention!

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Prudhoe Riverside parkrun Results Page.

See you next Saturday, and #dfyb!

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 15 April Run Report

Another sunny Saturday greeted the 174 parkrunners who joined us this morning at Prudhoe Riverside. Unfortunately the temperatures didn’t quite live up to the sunshine. Our hardy band of volunteers shivered enviously as Hezzy, one of the event team, donned his super-warm rabbit costume to deliver a slightly surreal event briefing, and hand out eggs to all today’s finishers!

Our thanks go to volunteers Helen, Jack and Michael Boaden, Tony Brown, Jennifer Burn, Tracey Corfield, Melanie Elliott, Richard Heslop, Maria and Philip Hindmarsh, Maxine J Lewis, Joanne Lucking, Donna Maughan, Jane Morton, Lisa Napier and Paul Townsend.

Almost one third (57) of today’s runners were first timers, with 16 running their first ever parkrun and 40 runners recording new Personal Bests. Well done to everyone on their achievements, with special mentions to Tony Robson of Derwent Valley Running Club, who earned his ‘50’ milestone t-shirt today, and four JM/JW10s running their first ever parkrun – Harry, Meghan, Oisin and Oliver.

The Bank Holiday weekend brought a few tourists to Prudhoe Riverside – with visitors joining us from Greater and South Manchester, Leicestershire, West Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire, and Scotland. We hope you all loved our parkrun as much as we do.

While every run is an achievement, we finish today with our Scottish parkrunner. David Saunders of Carnegie Harriers has completed 162 parkruns. Working his way across Scotland and north-east England, David has now completed all but two Scottish parkruns, and, after today, only has two left to do in the north east. Well done, and glad you enjoyed the run David. Cumbria and Yorkshire next perhaps?

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 8th April 2017 Run Report

A smattering of seasonal Spring frost greeted the 165 participants of this mornings parkrun. Most of the bite was taken out of the air by brilliant sunshine in a clear blue sky, and if you hadn't warmed up by then already, there was a gorgeous suntrap just as you cornered round the back of The Spetchells.

Fifty six first timers took advantage of the beautiful weather, including Jonathan Gilroy who took the First Finisher position, with local lad, and no stranger to the top spot, Jack Boaden, hot on his heels. The fantastic conditions resulted in sixty seven new PB's, with Teresa Saint scoring a best time on her 150th parkrun! Well done Teresa, well done everyone.

It was nice to see some new smiling faces at the marshal points throughout the course and waiting at the end. Remember, if you want to volunteer and keep the machine that is Prudhoe Riverside parkrun going, drop an email to prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com

Have a great week folks!

April 1st 2017 Run Report

It was sunshine and dry paths for the 126 runners who joined us for event number 21,  at Prudhoe parkrun, 28 for the first time, and we recorded a whopping 53 personal bests.

It was a morning of celebration and drama as we were joined by a visiting Stag party, and our Event Director’s long suffering hubby, Seamus Kelleher, joined us for his birthday parkrun. There was drama with a faller on the final lap, thankfully we can report after extensive prodding and x-raying at Hexham General, she is fine and will be running with us again soon. Hopefully this time she’ll have memorised where that tree root was!

Manchester Frontrunner’s Martin Dunn took the coveted first home spot this week, his second run at Prudhoe but his first time as first finisher. He was chased down by local runner, and Prudhoe Riverside stalwart, Andy Green of Tynedale Harriers and fellow Tynedale Harrier, Christopher Jackson finished third. The ladies were well represented and we had a photo finish between Beth Fraser and Claire Philips for first place, in 22:05 with Beth just edging it for the coveted first female finisher place. In total 13 running clubs were represented in this week’s run and the event was made possible by 17 volunteers.

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 25 March 2017 Run Report

Spring finally arrived at Prudhoe Riverside this morning, with the growing pile of extra layers on the fence next to the downhill evidence of the rapidly rising temperatures!

The glorious sunshine brought you out in force – 144 people ran Prudhoe Riverside this morning. It also helped dry out the mud at the back of the Spetchells, and brought a smile to everyone’s face. Danny, our photographer this week, takes his role very seriously: he’s been getting some photography tips from the excellent Debbie Young. Check out his photos on our Facebook page - we think you’ll agree he’s captured the sunny, happy mood of this week’s parkrun perfectly: https://www.facebook.com/pg/prudhoeriversideparkrun/photos/?tab=album&album_id=315450618858208

Of course, Danny is only one of our band of amazing volunteers, and our thanks this week go to:

Amanda Fletcher, Danny Gilholme, Helen, Jack and Michael Boaden, Jane Morton,  Joanne Lucking, Kate Lloyd, Katharine, Mark and Max Russell, Kenneth Wright, Maxine J Lewis, Paul Robinson, Richard Heslop, Samantha Day, Tony Brown and Tracey Corfield.

47 of you achieved new PBs, and, of the 33 first timers at Prudhoe Riverside today, 11 of you were also running your first every parkrun. Welcome to the family. Special mention goes to Lindsay for getting today’s tail-runners Jane and Tracey round the course in one piece!

We also welcomed tourists from York and Leeds – hope you enjoyed the course and come back soon.

Last, but not least, we also saw three runners complete their 50th parkrun today. Our congratulations go to Jason Brooker, Hayley Regan and Mark John Reynolds.

As we say every week, parkrun is made possible because of the support of our volunteers. Please consider giving up a run to wear the high-vis one Saturday.  To join us next Saturday (or any other week), please email us with your parkrun barcode number at:  prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com.

See you next Saturday and #dfyb!
