Rushmoor parkrun #203 – 16th June 2018

Well, it was a lovely morning in our park and we arrived nice and early to set up. The course inspection was soon underway with our Run Director, Alex and DofE volunteer, Elliot setting off around our course in a pace I can but dream of! It was Elliot’s last day completing his DofE volunteering so congratulations to Elliot and we hope to see him back running/volunteering with us in the future.

Today, Hart Road Runners were also taking over Rushmoor parkrun and provided most of our 38 volunteers for this morning’s run.

It was soon time to get the run underway and 523 of us set off on the two lap course. The sun was out so it all made for a pleasant run with and of course, with cake at the finish there was all to run for.

You may have also recognized some familiar faces as many of our Hart Road Runner volunteers also run at Rushmoor and we thank you for giving up that run to volunteer with us. We hope you enjoyed your volunteering role and will be back with us soon.

Amongst them was a group of pacers so I hope they helped you on your run and for many of you achieving that all new PB! In fact, there were quite a few 126 new PB’s were recorded today (24% of those that ran))!

One of those was by our first finisher, Richard Lovejoy crossing the line in a very impressive time of 16:43.

There was also more to celebrate with quite a few milestone runs being completed this morning.

Firstly, our junior parkrunners completing their 10th run with us this morning were Alfi Griffiths, Isabella Bennett, Kieran Allen & Zara Fallaway with Isabella and Zara also achieving a new PB.

Running their 50th parkrun were Calum Rainier and John Jackson and Calum also achieving a new PB.

Joining the 100 club was Adrian Weston, Greg Allin and Ross Wallingford.

Well done to all of you and we look forward to seeing you in your new t-shirts soon.

We are sad to say we have had to cancel our parkrun on the 30th June. This of course gives you the option for that rare Saturday morning lie in or to go for a bit of tourism and visit another parkrun. We will post on our facebook event where we intend to visit soon.

Have a good week and we hope to see you back at Rushmoor for another parkrun on Saturday.

Inspirational quote for you to think about:

Running is the greatest metaphor for life because you get out of it what you put into it.

Here is also one to use on your friends who have not started yet!

The voice inside your head that say ‘you can’t do that’ is a liar!

Rushmoor parkrun #201 2nd June 2018

Saturday was a lovely day for a Parkrun. As Run Director I only had time for one lap when I did the course inspection and was envious that I couldn't run this week.
We had 493 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 45 were first timers and 65 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part. We had visitors from the lovely local Parkruns of Woodley and Guildford and much more excitingly from very far away: from Sydney, Australia and also near Wellington, New Zealand! I have been a tourist to two of those (guess which ones!) and would love to visit the other two.

We had SEVEN milestone runs - or as I prefer to think of them CAKE runs- this week:

Megan Packett with 10
Nigel Williams, Richard Hutchings and Isobal Smith on 50
Richard Howard, Chris Geoghegan and Richard Sherlock hit the 100 mark

Special congratulations to you all although everyone that gets up a Saturday morning and does parkrun always deserves congratulations.

The event was made possible by 26 very lovely volunteers:

Jenny LOMAS-PARAM • Chris MCWILLIAM • Angela AUSTIN • Alexander John RADFORD • Linda RADFORD • Tom BARTON • Elliot Matthew ALLIN • Deborah HEIGHES • Zoe BARTON • Simon COOPER • Paul HURFORD • Ian WHITE • William MARCHESELLI • Vanessa PINTO • Ben RAGGETT • Mark RANOLA • Heather MILLINGTON • James EWING • Eleanor BARTON • David WRIGHT • Catherine KENNEDY • Gaetan FIJAC • Oliver BENNETT • Matt BENNETT • Andrew GUDGE • Edward BARTON

And a big thank you to all of you who personally thank the volunteers for their time on the day; it is appreciated. Saturday's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Rushmoor parkrun Results Page. You can also sign up to volunteer for Rushmoor on that page. Remember, if you volunteer once a year, we will always be fine for marshalls etc.
