Run report – Event #396 – What’s your number?

Parkrun Run Report #396 by Nicola Reynolds

Welcome to the Reading parkrun run report #396. This will be a bit of a report by numbers, as they featured so prominently today!

The countdown to the 'let's go for a run!' was uttered by our Run Director, Paul Caswell, assisted by his shadow RD – Sunil Fernandes. Paul led the intrepid runners through their running orders, backed with a happy sunny day to propel us all forwards!

Paul was assisted by his team of volunteers, Alexa DUCKWORTH- BRIGGS  •  Caroline PHILLIPS  •  Charlie MANTON  •  Chris MANTON  •  Chris SMITH  •  Colin MCCARLIE  •  David HODGKINSON  •  Gina HOPKINS  •  Helen GRIEVES  •  Jane SILVEY  •  Jennifer GREEN  •  Keith ELLIS  •  Kerry EASTWOOD  •  Krish TRICHUR  •  Nicola REYNOLDS  •  Paul CASWELL  •  Peter COOK  •  Robert HELE  •  Robin BERTRAND  •  Sue JONES  •  Sunil FERNANDES. Thanks all! Remember, it's worthwhile to give back to parkrun, as without the volunteers there is no run! Feel free to get in touch via our facebook page or readinghelpers@parkrun.com and we can set you up!

Tourists joined us from Bracknell, Linwood, Peter Pan parkrun (didn't know it even existed! - author's note), Southend, Castlehaven, Southampton, Hackney, and Woodley. At least 10 tourist destinations shouted during the briefing which helps to colour our parkrun!

On a numbers note, we had a very special parkrunner with us today, celebrating his 400th (yes, that's right, 400th!) parkrun. Ian Giggs, of Reading Roadrunners, started running at parkrun back in 2009. He has been a roving tourist, having visited a total of 218 different parkruns, including as far and wide as Wales, Poland, Sweden, Italy, Ireland, and of course jolly old England. Ian has run a little over 25% of his runs with us here at Reading (112, to be precise) and has finished in 1st place previously – an outstanding achievement! Congratulations to you, Ian, and only 100 more runs to the coveted 500 shirt!

A brief feature, PB of the week, trawling the stats I was super impressed by Benjamin SUMMERS, who arrived in 4th place at today's parkrun. He has improved by 27 seconds since his last visit to Reading on 22nd July! Congratulations, Benjamin! We look forward to your continued improvements as you work towards your 50 shirt.

Have a good week – see you next parkrunday!

Reading parkrun Event #390

By Mary Wilson

Well, a few weeks ago, my parkrun report suggested that the sun should be shining just that little bit more. The sun must have been paying attention because boy did the sun shine today!! What a beautiful morning to be by the river!
Today in preparation for the future Prospect parkrun (no we don’t know when it will start, yes we will let people know), I had the great opportunity to shadow the Run Director, who was Jon Kew. In order to become a Run Director they show you the ropes before releasing you on the masses.
As it was a three lap course due to the impending regatta we had to collect the paraphernalia from the storage unit and lug it down to the start point, which had been commandeered by the fishermen!! But ever resourceful we set up on the other side.
The morning starts off very friendly as volunteers arrive and grab their hi-viz vests. Each volunteer is greeted and asked if they know what their role entails. If they don’t the RD gives them an overview of what they need to do so that they are comfortable. If they already know, off they go and mingle. At this point the course set up crew were already out there marking the course for hazards and directions.
The run get a little busy before the off, as there is the first timers briefing, the remaining volunteers arriving, people asking questions and making sure that the correct people have the stopwatches, the tokens and the scanners.

With all this in place, Jon held the runners briefing, where milestone runners were identified;
Well done Sharon Cameron on your unofficial milestone of 200 parkruns.

Congratulations to El DEIGHTON, Rachael BURCHARDT and Catherine HICKS who all completed their 50th parkrun. Great running ladies.

Then the tourists were welcomed – Hello Scotland! 1st timers were congratulated and all runners were advised; it’s a 3 course lap – count your laps and NO Reading parkrun on 24th June (there are others you can be a tourist at if you want to).

With the run briefing over, 362 runners headed to the start point for the off. On the count of 3,2,1, *GO* 362 runners headed towards the bridge and off they disappeared into the distance to be carefully looked after by the marshals dotted around on the course.

This is where the fun kicked in for the remaining volunteers as everyone leapt into action building the finish funnel, directing late starters (not Christina and Phil this time) where to go and making sure the right people had the right clipboards and everyone was happy with their role.
Then we waited…and waited…staring at the bridge wondering which runners that came over were parkrun runners or just park runners!
…and then the first one home came over the bridge sprinted down the home straight, turned into the finish funnel and so began the timing, token giving and scanning of the runners. With a constant flow of runners the next 45 minutes seems a blur as the Run Director makes sure everything is running smoothly, any issues are highlighted, any questions from the volunteers are answered and the process is kept going like the well-oiled machine that it is.


Then suddenly the tail runners, Caroline and Jacob Phillips, crossed the line and were scanned in. That was it. Parkrun over for another week…or was it.

Of course not, the course was collected in, the finish was dismantled and put away, the hi-viz were returned with words of thanks for their help and the paraphernalia was lugged back to the storage unit. The volunteer army that created the magical parkrun was released for the day. Then it was off to the pub for post run refreshments and the important task of uploading the results!

Huge thanks go to the runners, the volunteers and especially to Jon Kew for allowing me to shadow him at Saturday's parkrun.

Mary’s thought for the day
Feeling hot hot hot, well done to all runners that made it round the course in that hot weather! I was fascinated to see so many different running outfits in people’s efforts to keep cool and protected from the sun. However, I was surprised to see that as I was volunteering I forgot to take water for myself or a sun hat! As I wasn’t running, I didn’t think I needed it. Boy oh boy was I wrong as I slowly cooked myself in the heat. Huge thanks to Margaret for sharing her water with me.
However, it seemed to be a fairly common theme, as people said to me that they hadn’t thought to bring water as it was just 5km! They hadn’t realized just how hot it was out there as they slowly melted over my clipboard!
So, remember to drink before you are thirsty and eat before you are hungry. Try drinking a glass of water / weak juice before your run (in advance to prevent icks and sicks) to ensure hydration and have some after your run to rehydrate! If you get too hot a little tip is that running cold water over your wrists can help cool you down.

Side note:
A conversation recently highlighted that lots of new runners weren’t aware that parkrun is a not for profit organisation and that parkruns each have their own donation page. It’s important to highlight this is optional as the beauty of parkrun is that it’s free for everyone and this is how it will continue to be, this is just an awareness not a prompt…we save the prompts for #DFYB

Reading parkrun Event #389

By Clare Sheppard, with photos from Peter Cook

As I opened up the curtains this morning, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but happily I saw blue sky and the sunshine.  That’s always a good start to a Saturday morning.  It was a bit blowy, and during the walk down the long stretch to the meeting point I did wonder how that was going to affect the running….but as our race director Peter Reilly suggested, it would hopefully cool us down not slow us down.  And indeed it seemed to do the trick, for an amazing 82 people (including myself!) achieved a PB at today’s event.

Race number 389 saw 13 people giving parkrun a go for the first time.  A huge welcome to them, and we do hope to see you again.  Indeed we also saw 13 people returning for a 2nd time.  So 13 is definitely not an unlucky number for parkrunners at Reading this week.  The total number of runners this week was 489, and over 80 of those runners were new to Reading parkrun.  As well as welcoming those from nearby Woodley whose event was not on this week, we also had people from Preston, Southampton, Bath and even New Zealand.  Considering there were 80 of you though, the rest of you were pretty quiet!!  Congratulations also went to Sue and Phil Davey, tourists from Exeter Riverside, who will be celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow.  Congratulations guys.

Parkrun celebrations now, and Nick Keane and Robin Jewell both achieved the milestone 50 parkruns this morning.  Robin was also accompanied by a baby and buggy today! Well done to you both.  I did also notice on the results that Sharon Cameron ran her 199th parkrun today, so will hopefully be celebrating the unofficial 200 very soon.  For someone who is only on parkrun number 18, 50 still seems a long way off let alone into the 100s.

Without the incredible volunteers of course, parkrun couldn’t exist.  I for one, have been a member for some years, not attending very often to start with, but until recently I, took it for granted that it would always be there.  It’s only since being more heavily involved in a running community that I have come to appreciate the high viz heros at every race, and at every parkrun.  My running club is called UK Mudd Queens (yes with 2 ds!) and it is because of the Mudd Queens I decided to take the plunge and volunteer.  I started today with the race report, but will certainly be doing more in the future.  One of the Mudd Queens designed a challenge a month or so ago, in order to collect the letters to spell out Mudd Queens.

We had to undertake certain things at parkruns each week before 24th June.  To collect the 2nd ‘D’, it either needed to drizzle during parkrun or we needed to donate our time to parkrun.  Depsite the crazy weather of late, I can confirm that there has not been any rain at Reading parkrun for many weeks.  With the deadline looming, I decided the chance of drizzle was looking unlikely, and it was the last letter I had left.  So I took the plunge, looked at the volunteer page on the website and emailed my interest.  It was as easy as that, the roster is there for all to see, and all the roles explained. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/reading/volunteer/ If you would like to, but are a bit unsure, don’t be.  The team will be more than happy to explain anything to you, and welcome you on board.

Your volunteers this week were Sushant CHUDAL, Anthony EASTAWAY, Craig HENDERSON, David HODGKINSON, Sue JONES, Ian MAY, Colin MCCARLIE, Jenny OAKLEY, William PLATT, Joshua PULLAN, Peter REILLY, Clare SHEPPARD, Matt SLINGSBY, Chris SMITH

Finally, I had a bit of a FOMO this weekend (fear of missing out) as many of you took part in Endure 24.  I did not know about this event until recently, and having been at the Brutal Endurance event last year, (only doing the 10k) the atmosphere was amazing.  I have heard the atmosphere at Wasing Park is too.  I hope you had a great time there and at other running events at the weekend such as the Wargrave 10km.  Happy and safe running everyone.

Event 386 – Reading Joggers Takeover (20th May)

Words by Jayne Woodhouse (Run Director on the day) and photos by Peter Cook and Andy Lambourne

On Saturday 20th May Reading Joggers took over Reading parkrun. Nearly all volunteer roles were carried out by members of Reading Joggers. I found myself with the role of Run Director. Eekk not a role I had remotely thought about before; however with Teresa's "guide to being run director" the day arrived.

How did the run brief go? Well I survived, I did forget to mention all the tourists, for that I am sorry.  Looking out at the 400+ people is pretty nerve wracking. The best bit by far was shouting GO.. Wow this was almost as good as the cake. I enjoyed it so much that I may have to do this role again.  If you haven't volunteered yet or are anxious about not knowing what to do, don't worry everyone is so helpful and friendly that you need not worry.  It is an amazing sight to see all the runners take off and disappear over the bridge. There were 428 who ran, walked or jogged. The weather was perfect for the volunteers :-) 63 of you managed a personal best, well done.

There was 1 milestone runner; Peter Beard ran his 250th parkrun, congratulations, that is awesome. His family were there to help him celebrate.  I look forward to seeing Peter in his 250th t-shirt. There was also a birthday celebration for Brian Grieves, happy Birthday.

Reading Joggers surpassed themselves at baking; there was a huge array of cakes which were enjoyed by all. Reading Joggers have a reputation for wonderful cakes.  Thank you Reading Joggers for the lovely cakes.

Reading parkrun a wonderful community which I am extremely proud to be part of.

 

Reading parkrun #385 Celebrations at parkrun

By Mary Wilson, photos by Peter Cook

I’d like to start by saying a big thank you from the runners to all the volunteers who do such an amazing job, especially over the last month as Reading parkrun numbers have soared which is testimony to what a great event TVP is each week.

As it’s May I can’t be alone in thinking that the sun should be shining just that little bit more than it seems to be but as there’s no such thing as bad weather only bad clothes parkrun day began regardless!

So, despite the inclement weather, event number 385 started with a great run briefing by Paul Caswell who identified a few visitors from Bracknell, Slough, Chipping Sodbury (with the great peach top, perfect for touristing) and Faye Hemmingway from Newark (who I got to meet whilst running, but more about that later).

Paul also identified a number of milestone runs including; Emma Gennard  and Matthew Berry who both achieved their 50, Lee Savage who completed his 100th.  Congratulations to you all.  I am told that if t-shirts are not in stock yet they will hopefully be arriving in June, keep your eyes peeled for them!

Also running unofficial milestones were Alfie Louis Jones at 150 and Jayne Woodhouse at 200. Well done those are both huge achievements and well on your way to the 250 t-shirt!!

A whopping 503 of us set off on our stint around TVP. Although I personally found the morning quite humid and close, which I find really hinders me, there were an amazing 105 new PB’s of which 20 of those were returning for their 2nd parkruns, which is brilliant and includes  David Lewis who was first runner home with a new shiny PB to boot.  There were 71 Reading parkrun first timers of which 46 were running their first parkrun ever!  Welcome to the parkrun family and we look forward to seeing you again next week.

As I mentioned earlier, during the run I got to meet Faye from Newark who was visiting friends and needed a prompt to remember to get up and run her local parkrun more often so that she could reach her 50th this year.  There are excuses and excuses, but Faye says her local one is only a stones throw away and so it is too easy to stay under the duvet!!

It is often said that the hardest part of a run, is doing up your laces before you leave the house and I think this week’s celebrations have demonstrated that once parkrun becomes a habit it just keeps you coming back.

Mary’s thought for the day

I started parkrun as I needed to learn to run with people, I was quite happy running on my own, but I found in the Henley Half Marathon as a back of the pack runner I wouldn’t overtake the runners in front of me. It was psychological and I have overcome my issue and can now be found sprinting (well it is to me) down the home straight!

What was great for me when I turned up was an experienced (to me) runner came over and said hello and engaged with me till we started, thanks Nevil Hunt! Don’t ever underestimate the power of conversation to allay the voices in the head who are asking what you are doing.

What made you come to parkrun and what is it that keeps you coming back each week?
