Richmond parkrun 529 – 21st October 2017

Coffee and a sprinkle of confidence.

 

A conversation at a coffee morning reinforces the benefits of parkrun and the need for each of us to keep true to its spirit.

 

As the group of women talked, conversation turned from children to exercise. I like yoga, said one, but you have to choose your class carefully. I’ve been to lots where everyone is so beautifully dressed and amazing at yoga and you just end up feeling rubbish. Oh yes, said another, and sometimes the teacher looks down on you because you can’t do things and you feel really uncomfortable. A third nodded her agreement: she had tried many classes but was still searching for one that would not leave her feeling inadequate.

 

It was startling to hear these women talk in this way about yoga, a practice which eschews competition and advocates kindness and compassion to others. It was perhaps more startling when the conversation moved on to swimming. I’m terrible at swimming, said the first, so I only go when I know the pool will be empty and no-one will see me. The others were impressed that she went at all: for them it would be too humiliating. A suggestion that we are all equally entitled to our space in a public pool and that it is no-one else’s business how good or bad you look as you swim up and down a lane, in no way affecting the experience of other swimmers, was met by small shakes of the head.

 

This is not a recruitment drive for women who have been scarred by experiences of yoga and swimming. Both are wonderful forms of exercise for body and mind and anyone who wants to give them a go should feel good about doing so. Instead it is a plea to parkrunners to keep making parkrun an inclusive, welcoming community for those who may be inclined to feel rubbish, uncomfortable and inadequate.

 

So do, please, keep turning up on a Saturday morning looking as if you only woke up ten minutes ago. Do keep wearing the tee-shirt that is now so faded you can’t be sure if it celebrated Charles and Diana’s wedding or Y2K. Do mutter on the start line about how you’ll be glad just to get round and grunt on the hills about how the wind is always blowing in the wrong direction. Do, if you’re one of the early finishers, walk back to cheer the rest of us on and make us feel good that we’re all part of the same event. Each parkrun completed is a sprinkle of confidence, sometimes much needed.

 

This week 438 people completed Richmond Park parkrun. Those who were there bright and early were rewarded by a sharp shower, while those who dragged themselves out of bed at the last minute were greeted by a warm autumn sunshine start. Fifty five were first timers – inclusive shout outs to Reuben Pivcevic, Gail and David Edwards and to second timers June Goh, who seems to have been bitten by the parkrun bug after making her debut last week, and Julie Mellor, who debuted two weeks ago and was lured back again this week. Thank you to the group from Bracknell Forest Runners who made the journey to Richmond Park parkrun, particularly to Robin Briscoe, running with Taylor Briscoe (JM10), Adrian and Sarah Luscombe, Samantha Coombs and Steph Clare, who all spent long enough out there to really enjoy our single lap route. Congratulations to Juliette Cooper and Ela Slonina, who both ran their 100th parkrun this week, Juliette having completed all 100 at Richmond Park.

 

Thank you, too, to the volunteers who make everyone feel welcome, from the cheery “just run through the puddles” at the start to the heartfelt “well run” at the end. Confidence sprinklers, all.

Richmond parkrun 528 – 14th October 2017

Happy 10th Birthday Richmond Park parkrun.

Glorious autumn sunshine lit up Richmond Park for our 10th Birthday parkrun today. 487 runners, joggers and walkers joined this week’s volunteers in singing Happy Birthday before listening to some impressive birthday statistics.

17,649 individuals have completed the Richmond Park parkrun, between them recording 131,460 parkruns and covering a staggering 657,300 kilometres. Our course record attendance, set earlier this year, is 527 and our average of 250 runners each week is rising quickly as we haven’t dropped below 300 since the beginning of 2017.

As befits a birthday party, there were prizes for winners and for those who had played their part. The male and female points trophies, now retired in line with parkrun HQ’s removal of the parkrun points table, found permanent homes with the two runners who in the last four years have won them three times each. Cecily Day keeps the female points trophy, while Nick Ward was sent back to fetch the male points trophy from his car, before being awarded it again. Running this extra distance may have contributed to his 19.37 this week, a little off his PB of 18.34.

Pat Hewlett became the first winner of the new Richmond parkrun inspiration award and celebrated by completing her 323rd parkrun in 41.48. Pat does the parkrun almost every week, is the course VW75-80 record holder and has already run 38 times in the VW81-84, most recently setting the 2nd fastest time in this category. Inspiration, indeed.

The Rushby family had the honour of becoming the first winners of the Richmond parkrun family award. Between them they had already completed over 700 parkruns, most at Richmond Park, and they added another six today, with James the first to finish with a new PB of 22.55 and Phil bringing the family home in well under half an hour.

Osian Jones showed just why he won the Junior of the Year award when he celebrated Richmond Park’s 10th birthday parkrun by setting his 10th PB of this year in 20.36. Osian’s father had threatened to stop bringing Osian to parkrun once he beat his dad’s PB, but we’re guessing Gareth was extremely proud to see his son smash it by 15 seconds.

There were awards, too, for Ian Harrison, who won the Richmond Report Writer Award for his latest contribution to his much acclaimed “Noddy” series, and Steve Thomas, who took home the Richmond Volunteer Award in recognition of his services to Richmond Park parkrun in that most stressful of parkrun roles, timekeeper.

We were all extremely proud to be joined for the 10th birthday parkrun by Richmond Park parkrun’s first event director, Karen Weir, who completed this week’s parkrun in an impressive 24.15, and by the founder of parkrun himself, Mr. Paul Sinton-Hewitt, CBE. Paul spoke about how much parkrun means to him and said that one of the unexpected benefits has been the opportunity parkrun provides for people to meet people they would not otherwise have the chance to meet. Many hands went up as Paul asked who had made new friends through parkrun.

Trevor Patterson

In the midst of all the celebrating, runners and volunteers stood quietly as we learned of the sudden death last Tuesday of Trevor Patterson. Trevor ran 256 parkruns, all but ten of them at Richmond Park parkrun, his most recent one just last week. We were joined today by his three sons and Connor spoke emotionally but eloquently about how parkrun had been important to them as father and son. Connor went on to complete his 150th parkrun today, coming in a few seconds behind his brother, Ben, who set a new PB of 19.46. Our thoughts are with them and their family at this toughest of times.

Richmond parkrun # 527 – 07/10/2017

Lets get this party started:

This weekend was parkrun’s 13th birthday. As 200,000 runners and volunteers across 1,200 events and 17 countries gathered together for their local parkruns, it’s quite astonishing to think that the whole, wonderful movement began with a dozen or so friends gathering for what they then called ‘Bushy Park Time-Trials’ in early October 2004.

It just shows that you really can't have too much of a good thing, because parkrun is now the largest running-event on the planet. But despite it being a massive ‘movement’, parkrun’s success is rooted in its ‘local’ feel at whichever event you call your home run. For those of us who indulge in a little parkrun tourism, we find the same atmosphere at other events – that friendliness and warmth of welcome to new and visiting runners and a very democratic mix of experienced and elite runners lining up together with (and volunteering and encouraging) novice runners, children, people pushing baby-buggies and those running with dogs. Anything else this well organised and inclusive would cost you something to join, but parkrun remains a free, timed event, which keeps runners (and walkers) of all levels coming back every week.

The first Saturday of every month is pacers' week, which always seems to boost the numbers (as well as the PBs). This Saturday was a big one - 439 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 46 were first timers. A fantastic 68 runners recorded new PBs including Noyan KONNOLU (32:00), Neelam NIJJAR (34:23), Junior runner Joel JONES (50:07), Michael BOARDMAN (22:22), Maxine COLES (29:45), Anna REICHWALD (24:14), John WHITE  (27:00), Hayley GREATHOLDER (25:39) and Isabelle WHITEHILL (32:07).

Margie Marshall and Ian Harrison attended parkrun on Saturday even though they were getting married later that day. Margie could be forgiven for running six minutes slower than her PB of 24:13 seeing as how she was wearing a white net veil. She and Ian were obviously having a lot of fun with their friends, who ran with them.  Ian added a sporting twist to tradition by carrying Margie over the finishing line to the amusement (or frustration depending on whether they were trying for PBs or not) of other runners.

There was nothing to stop the first three men over the line achieving incredible times although all three were slightly off their PBs. First over the line was Simon SHAW in 17:15, closely followed by Thomas ZIEGEL and Graham BROOK with 18:20   and 18:30 respectively.

Claire BAGLIN was first lady in a time 20:21, Elisa FERRUA was second in 21:54 and Junior runner  Mia BROOKS (JW11-14) was third in 22:27.

Another person worthy of note is F WERNDLE who ran his 441st parkrun, which is an incredible achievement. His time was pretty respectable too (38:48).

As always, the event was made possible by 27 volunteers:

F WERNDLE • Elio ZENTILIN • Clive LESTER • Sonia KOHOL • Steve THOMAS • Greig CATTO • Lesley Helen FOOTE • Angela CATTO • Nick CATTO • David PENNELL • Neil ISAAC • Peter BOWKER • Simon MORSE • Clare DAY • Chris BULGER • Katherine BURSTON • Justine PANAY • Elizabeth ORR • Francesca CREASY • Jasper ROSELAND • Elisabeth GORES • Hadi KHATAMIZADEH • Katie LEE • Maia LEWIS • Zanny LEWIS • Robert HILLHOUSE • Lucy WESTENBERGER.

This week's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Richmond parkrun Results Page.

Don’t forget that this weekend Richmond parkrun will be celebrating its 10th birthday, so we hope to see a huge turnout. It will also be awards day, during which volunteers and some special achievers will be hailed and praised (or named and shamed) in the nicest possible way. Oh, and there’ll be cake, so what’s not to like! You could also bring some cake too and to heck with the calories – you’ll have just run 5k, half of it uphill!

We look forward to seeing you all next week, same time, same place and in the party mood! In the meantime have a great week’s running.

Richmond Park parkrun 526 – 30 September 2017

Conversation pieces

Notwithstanding resolutely dreary forecasts, the weather gods smiled on Richmond parkrun yet again - 462 set off running, jogging and walking, through a couple of puddles at the start but finishing in full sun under a blue sky.

Of the 462, 48 were Unknown, counted as male (because they forget their barcodes? in fact, some are serious athletes who don't want to compromise their Run Britain ranking www.runbritainrankings.com/ on our relatively slow course, which goes some way to explaining why Mr Unknown Athlete figures prominently on the first finishers page - 5th fastest time and 36 first places, second only to Anna Critchlow with 46 www.parkrun.org.uk/richmond/results/firstfinishescount/).
Another 61 of us were 1st timers, including:
- 22 absolute beginners (13 male, 9 female, ages from under 10 to 55-59: it's never too late to start parkrunning!):
- Mike Brennan (M40-4) 22:35 on his 295th (a seasoned south London tourist, all the way from neighbouring Wimbledon!);
- Bracknell regulars and international tourists (Isle of Wight to South Africa), Mark (M40-4) 33:25 and Carla Statham (W35-9) 33:24, celebrating her 50th parkrun the traditional way with copious doughnuts, which they shared generously with everyone queuing to register: congratulations and thank you very much Carla!;
- Fulham Palace regular and international tourist Catherine Louise Spurin (W20-24) 25:01 on her 129th;
- the Hull family from Rushmere parkrun, Leighton Buzzard;
- Heidi Catt (W40-44) 53:45 from South Africa on her 45th;and
- a family from Florida (still no parkruns, but they are starting to spread in the USA).
Welcome to you all!

A run, not a race, of course - but am I alone in regarding parkrun as more a conversation?  What did you talk about?  This week I put the world right with fellow Ranelagh Harrier, Annemarie Goodridge, squeezing in a run before visiting her mother in Sussex.
And there were other conversations throughout the field: Fi Whatley tail walking had ample time, as did old hands Clive Lester and Serge Lourie (combined total 645 parkruns!) discussing quantum physics; others had to be more concise, e.g., 1st timers, Elysia Upton (W20-4) 25:07 and the aforementioned Catherine Spurin - not sure of their topics of conversation: what do Imperial College biology and geophysics graduates talk about?

Demographics
Talking of old hands, I'm sure there's interesting work to be done on the changing demographics of parkrun.  For example, comparing today's field with that on the last parkrun in September 2010 (there could be more representative dates: I have neither time nor expertise for thorough analysis), I note a marginal increase in female participation (from 39% to 42% overall): roughly equal up to the Senior 30-34 age group in 2010 it is now roughly equal up to Veteran 40-44; more strikingly, it's very clear that we're getting older!

Special performances
Not only was the weather good - run director David Pennell posted results very speedily (11.05am), recording some very speedy times, including 45 new Personal Bests, notably:
- Connor Paterson (M20-4) 18:24 by a sizzling 39 seconds, on his 141st at Richmond (of 149; NB, his interesting slowest time of 1:59:59 on 3 September 2011, when he finished equal 24th behind someone on 21:01 and ahead of 21:45: wonderful what scanning problems can do for one's average!);
- Ollie Morjaria (M15-17) 20:48 by 20 seconds on his 73rd at Richmond;
- Ruben Bouwmeester-Reid (M10) 22:43 by 28 seconds on his 3rd at Richmond of 10 parkruns (the others in South Africa, where his parkun PB is only 7 seconds ahead!);
- Scott Turnbull (M30-4) 21:33 by 9 seconds on his 55th Richmond run (of 77);
- Osian Jones (M11-14) 21:02 by 3 seconds on his 64th (of 77: another international tourist).

Clubs: Congratulations
- on joining the 250 Club, to taciturn Tim Curry (M65-9), running his 243rd at Richmond, and to David Summers (M50-4) on his 174th here (a mega tourist, he has run at 53 different parkruns so far!);
- on joining the 50 Club, to Karen Kirk (W40-4), all at Richmond, who matched her fastest 2017 time, and to Carla "doughnuts" Statham! And, last but not least,
- on joining the 10 Club to Ruben Bouwmeester-Reid (see above)!

Party time!
Finally, it's the season of celebrations - as we all know from Paul Sinton-Hewitt's email, this Saturday 7 October is #parkrun13  (what a shame Runner's World chose to upset him with their silly article; why cheat at parkrun? it's not a race: you only cheat yourself!).
7 October is also the Harrison & Marshall wedding parkrun at Richmond: hairy groom will be struggling to catch beautiful bride, and there will be pop and cakes!

Looking ahead, 14 October sees Richmond's 10th birthday - did you see Karen Weir's lovely piece? http://blog.parkrun.com/uk/2017/09/28/a-happy-accident/ - do make an effort to be early and feel the special buzz around "the best parkrun in the world" (with even more cake!).
.
Happy parkrunning!

Richmond parkrun 525 – 23 September 2017

The ‘Parkrun Birthday’ season is upon us, the first ever parkrun having taken place 13 years ago, with just 13 runners in Bushy Park on 2nd October 2004.

#parkrun13

Now the event is global and has become an essential part of the weekly diary for thousands of runners.  To celebrate the 13 years of phenomenal development, those of us who have an apricot top personalised with our home parkrun have been asked to upload a photo of themselves on social media with the hashtag: #parkrun13 … so the photo below, taken today, has been uploaded to www.flickr.com/groups/richmond-parkrun/ – will you do the same?
#parkrun13

With a cloudy but a comfortable 15°, 405 runners completed the Richmond parkrun today, including ‘tourists’ from Australia and South Africa and representatives of 36 different clubs taking part.  40 runners were First Timers and 70 recorded new Personal Bests.  Numbers seem to be going up in the junior age category, with a total today of 68 young runners aged 17 and under.  27 of them were in the ‘10 and under’ age category and another 27 were in the 11-14 age group.  It’s great to see so many families taking up the challenge together! Our Run Director, Francesca CREASY had to ask for volunteers to sprint with some of our super-fast under-11s who leave their parents far behind.  Oskar Fredrik BRIMACOMBE (JM10) gained the highest Age-Grade score (80.52%), coming in at 21.08 – brilliant stuff Oskar!  And at the other end of the age-range, our ever-faithful Pat HEWLETT (VW80-84) completed her 320th run today, while Clive LESTER (VM70-74) completed his 415th – well done Pat and Clive – you are an inspiration!

Congratulations also to:
Andrew BROWN (VM65-69) who completed his 400th run today
Phil AIKEN (VM50-54) who joined the 250 club today
Johan VON SOLMS (VM45-49) who joined the 50 club today
Rupert HOOPER (JM10) who joined the 10 club today
No-one joined the 100 club today, but there are 4 men on 98 who should smash it in 2 weeks’ time.
