Rising Sun parkrun Event number 135 12th January 2019

Wow, just Wow!!!

Our 3rd largest attendance this morning with 544 of you lovely people joining our 36 amazing volunteers at our much loved Rising Sun parkrun. There were so many of you that we very nearly had an issue with capturing all of your times but quick thinking saved the day. We are aware of a couple of scanning errors so let us know if there is an issue with yours.

This morning (very early for Aidan and I) we welcomed Persil who are a new parkrun sponsor. We hope that you all managed to get a free Persil sample pack and remember to keep your sticker with your number on so that you can find your photo on the website, pic2go.co.uk.

Congratulations to Mark Boxshall on his 100th parkrun and Thomas Stutt on his 50th parkrun, a great achievement by both.

A massive well done and thank you to Aidan Batey for his 50th volunteer role as a pacer. Thanks also to Michael Ashby and Pete Hawthorn - our other pacers this morning. We receive lots of positive feedback about our pacers, if you would like to volunteer as a pacer please let us know. Also if you have a particular target time in mind and would welcome a pacer to assist you in achieving this, please let us know and we will see what we can do.

We had loads of volunteers this week and each and every one deserve a huge thank you for their continued support. We always welcome volunteers so if you would like to help just let us know.

If we did have to write your finish place on your hand this morning, we appreciate your co-operation and just to let you know that we are on the case to get more finish tokens.

We hope that you all enjoyed your time with us this morning and we look forward to seeing you again.

Thanks
Sue RD

What an amazing morning at the Rising Sun parkrun, with over 860 runners with family and friends enjoying the gorgeous winter sun and the start of the New Year..

Rising Sun parkrun Event number 134 5th January 2019

Another huge attendance today at Rising Sun parkrun today (466) which is our 3rd highest ever gathering of you lovely people. It just shows how big the NYD parkrun really was!

Do any of you have a parkrun New Year's Resolution? If so, please share in the comments below :) If not, why not make one? Maybe to turn up to a certain amount, to volunteer every 10th run or to aim for a certain time.

Again, all the best from us at Rising Sun parkrun to Andy Waite and Rachael Williams for their wedding today. And again, well done to Emily K for her 100th parkrun with us and Tony Hopkins for volunteering with us 50 times.

Let's hope the weather holds again next week (jinxed it now haven't I...) and we'll see you all then!

Cheers
Aidan (Run Director)

 

Rising Sun parkrun Event number 132 29th December 2018

So it might have been a little windy and that was nothing to do with the Christmas Dinner.....
We hope that you have had a fantastic Christmas and are all looking forward to the New Year.
We had an awesome amount of volunteers this morning and even more runners turn up to run around the park, and run some of those chocolates off..lol
Massive well done to Sheila Hardwick on reaching her 50th parkrun today.
We are still a few volunteers short for New Years day so any help would be grateful.
Have a fantastic New Years Eve and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
