Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 16th March 2019 Run Report

A dusting of snow wasn’t what I expected to see out my bedroom window this morning. I hadn’t put much stock in any of the weather warnings and was expecting a smooth and flawless parkrun (or as close as it gets when I’m running the show).
Fortunately, by the time my glamorous assistant and I had checked the course, relentless rain had melted the snow and slush into fun puddles and made the back of the course claggy rather than slippy.
For a while I was worried the number of marshals would outnumber actual parkrunners, but then 86 of you brave, dedicated souls turned out to splash and slide around the Spetchells. A few had defied the weather and made the trip from as far as South Shields parkrun, including today's first finisher, who was kind enough to say how much he enjoyed my Run Directors briefing.
A HUGE well done to the latest graduates of Prudhoe Plodders Couch 2 5k group who weren't put off by the winterish conditions to join the parkrun party! Hopefully you'll be back time and again to score PB after PB!
Charlie Downing celebrated her one year parkrunniversary, and that wouldn’t have been possible without my band of hi-viz heroes:

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 9 March 2019 Run Report

After the crowds of the last few weeks, the early morning forecast must have persuaded some of you to stay in bed today. Nicola and Jane, today’s set-up team, were wishing they could have stayed in bed too, as they slid their way along the muddy, rainy trail at the back of the Spetchells on this morning’s course check.

153 washing machines across the Tyne Valley will be working hard this afternoon to clean the kit of those who joined us to run, jog and walk the course.  14 of you were first timers at Prudhoe Riverside, with four completing their first ever parkrun and 22 recording new Personal Bests. Well done all! Unfortunately we forgot to collect the PB gong from kit cupboard this morning, so you’ll have to ring it next week, instead!

Congratulations also go to my fellow Stocksfield Strider, Rinke Vinkenoog, who claimed his 50 milestone t-shirt this morning.

Representatives of 14 different clubs took part, including a lone tourist from further afield, representing Cleethorpes and District AC. Hope you enjoyed the course, despite the cold.

The event was made possible by 19 hi-viz heroes:

Joanne LUCKING • Richard WEYMES • Alison HABEBI • Jane MORTON • Steven BRADY • Angela NEWSOME • Maelona REDHEAD • Lisa NAPIER • Haydn WEYMES • Janine CALKIN • Paul REVILL • Peter REDHEAD • Nicola MACLEAN • Jane SHIPLEY • Sarah BECK • Linda MACKENZIE • Marzena MARZEC • Alexandra HUGHES • Jen CAIRNS

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 2 March 2019 Run Report – the one before Storm Freya arrives…

Spring officially arrived this morning (albeit briefly, if the MET office is to be believed), and blue sky and sunshine greeted our junior Run Director, Meghan, and her support crew on the riverside this morning. 202 of you who joined the hi-vis crew to run, jog and walk the course, including 20 first timers, with five of you completing your first ever parkrun. Welcome and well done!

A fabulous 32 of you recorded new Personal Bests this week. We’d like to think our first pacer week had something to do with it – so a big thank you to our wonderful pacers for supporting today’s parkrunners. We now have a PB gong to celebrate your achievements too, so make some noise next time!!

Representatives of 18 different clubs took part, including visitors from Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Leeds, and we celebrated just the one milestone: congratulations James Turner (JM10) on completing your tenth parkrun.

Alongside our pacers in blue, we were supported by our fabulous hi-vis heroes. Thanks to you all:
Ian BROWN • Jude SMITH • Richard WEYMES • Mel REED • Jane MORTON • Micky SHORE • Holly KELLEHER • Lisa GIBSON • Paul ROBINSON • Caroline O'NEILL • Steven BRADY • Richard HESLOP • Angela NEWSOME • Maelona REDHEAD • Aoife KELLEHER • Haydn WEYMES • Janine CALKIN • Peter REDHEAD • Ashleigh YOUNG • Meghan NAPIER • Sarah BECK • Samantha EDWARDS

We’ve had a run of kit being left behind after parkrun (mostly hoodies) since the start of the year, and two are still unclaimed – one burgundy and one grey. If they remain unclaimed by next Saturday, we’ll be donating them to charity, so if you are missing a jacket, email us at prudhoeriverside@parkrun.com
