Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 22nd July Run Report

Newcastle parkrun wasn't on. Running Ninjas were visiting. AND it was a Castle Tri Couch to 5k graduation week! It also rained, which certainly didn't dampen the spirits of the 142 parkrunners who turned out this morning. Thankfully, the weather didn't make the things too muddy for the 38 first timers gracing our course, and it certainly didn't trouble the 27 new PB's scored!

All the aforementioned C25Kers did magnificently, with Simon Carr bringing home a superb time of 25:32!! Well done to each and every one of you, wear your graduation t shirts with pride! You'll always get a warm welcome here whether you're running or volunteering (email prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com if you fancy a bit of that) and we hope to see you back soon.

We always like it when different running clubs visit, so it was great to see all the Running Ninjas today, and the support they gave to each other. Our Tail Walker reported it was the nicest finish she's ever known!

One last thing, congratulations to one of our Run Directors, Maxine, who got engaged today! MASSIVE congratulations to you and Ken!

That's it for now, thank you as always to our volunteers, who's smiles and encouragement shone through the drizzle!

Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 15th July Run Report

Volunteers.
You're amazing.
Seriously.
I thought things were going well this morning during set-up, until it was pointed out I'd missed a few things. I just wasn't quite 'with it'. And this amazing group of people helped hold everything together:

Joanne LUCKING • Michael BOADEN • Daniel POLLARD • Holly KELLEHER • Andrew ENZOR • Tom BENTLEY • Melanie ELLIOTT • Michael BROADHURST • Janine CALKIN • Linzi ELLENDER • Sandra DUIM • Alison SOUTHWOOD • Nicola MACLEAN • Thomas MASON • Adam KUZNESOF

The parkrun can't happen without people like this, so if you want to be part of a crack team, are having a rest day, nursing an injury, or just want to see how parkrun all works, drop us a message at prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com we're always delighted to have you, and no task is too daunting or complicated.

Now, as awesome as volunteers are, they'd look a bit daft standing on the course if it was devoid of anyone using it. So thank you also to the 102 participants who took on the weirdly changeable morning and produced 24 personal bests, with 21 of you having a bash for the first time. We'll be at the same place at the same time next week, and hope you are too.

Don't forget that Prudhoe is one of only 50 parkruns where you can take part in the Vitality 'My Summer Goal' challenge. If you have a health/lifestyle changing ambition for Summer, write it on our special whiteboard, have your picture taken holding it, and register here - https://mysummergoal.co.uk/ - the prizes up for grabs are amazing!

Saturday will be upon us again before you know it, keep smiling, and have a great week!

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 8th July Run Report

Summer remembered it wasn't quite over, and the sun warmed the morning from a clear blue sky...which when clouded over certainly made things a bit parky! Not that it put any of you off, as 170 of you graced our course. Whether you were getting some last minute practice in before Sunday's Great North 10K, or visiting due to Durham parkrun taking a break, we hope you had fun.

There were 26 first timers run/jog/walking around the Spetchells today and 42 new PB's were achieved, including Birthday girl Helen Orrell!

It was the debut of our special Vitality Health #mysummergoal this morning. We'll be asking you what your goal is over the Summer, and be pictured holding the #mysummergoal white board. More information can be found on our Facebook page with an example from our ED, Holly.

If you ever fancy a break from running, but still want to be part of parkrun, and think 'those volunteers look like they're having great fun, and check out the snazzy jackets they get to wear!' Then you too can be in hi-viz heaven by emailing prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com

Have a great week and see you on Saturday!

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 01 July Run Report

Fresh from the successful staging of their much-loved Tynedale 10k last Tuesday, the Tynedale Harriers and Athletics Club decided they hadn’t had enough of volunteering, and staged a parkrun takeover this Saturday, ably supporting Run Director Maxine. Thankfully, someone read the memo about booking good weather (unlike Tuesday) and they welcomed 138 parkrunners to a dry (but still muddy) Prudhoe Riverside.

18 of this week’s participants were first timers at Prudhoe, with nine of you running your first ever parkrun, and 33 achieving new Personal Bests. Well done to everyone - from the first to the final finisher.

Our thanks this week’s volunteers:
Louise Griffin, Elizabeth Earle, Joanne Lucking, Douglas Maxwell, Jules Pearson, Steven Diboll, Jane Morton, Liz Foster, Jan Oliver, Jo Lally, Andrew Turnbull, Maxine Lewis, Peter Graham, Paul Robinson, Jane Buckingham, Kay French, Janine Calkin, Gillian Bell and Liz Sandison.

We’re still looking for helpers next Saturday, so please consider swapping the extra half hour in bed for a hi-vis jacket and the gratitude of the parkrun community. You can contact us on FB: https://www.facebook.com/prudhoeriversideparkrun/ or email us at: prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com.

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

See you next Saturday - #dfyb (and the sunscreen, hopefully)!

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 24th June Run Report

Last weekends stunning summer heat had thankfully abated a little this morning, and with a slight breeze in the air, conditions were belting for a parkrun! Our friends and supporters from Castle Tri staged a takeover, and they literally had the flags out to welcome everyone. Everyone being the nearly 200 of you (190 to be exact) who turned out to run/jog/walk around our course. If you were ‘on tour’ due to Newcastle parkrun being on hiatus, we hope you had fun and are back to visit soon.

There were 41 first timers joining the parkrun experience, and 52 of you left with new Personal Best times. Special shout out to Ben Mitchell who completed his 50th parkrun today with his 14th visit to Prudhoe Riverside parkrun.

We very much believe in the all inclusive nature of parkrun here at Prudhoe Riverside, and it was manifested today by Elspeth Thomson, who made her debut as a guide runner for a visually impaired parkrunner. You’re a wonderful example of the parkrun ethos, Elspeth, and welcome back any time.

On a final note, we always like to provide a challenge to our volunteers, and Castle Tri certainly coped well this morning. Not just with the above average number of participants, the sudden squeaking waiver of Mr. Heslop’s voice during the NRB, but also with one of our stopwatches ‘conking out’. Well done! You can find out more about the club and their training sessions on the internet - http://www.castletri.co.uk/ and Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/CastleTri2015/?fref=ts

Thanks everyone, and remember, if you want to help out, drop us an email - prudhoeriversidehelpers@hotmail.com. See you all next week, and be excellent to each other!
