Rutland Water parkrun – Event 110 – 6th January 2018

This week we saw 236 people run, jog and walk the course, of whom 54 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part. Although a few puddles along the way, it was rather good conditions for parkrun compared to prior weeks, anyone notice the unusual occurrence of the wind blowing away from the dam this week?!

We heard the devastating news of another parkrunner who had tragically passed away at Swindon parkrun on Saturday. The team were very quickly able to alert the family due to the ICE (In Case of Emergency) details on her bar-code. Please ensure your emergency information is up to date, by looking at the bar-code you bring to parkrun. You can update the information on the website, and reprint your bar-code at any time. You can also order a plastic card or official wristband from https://parkrun-barcode.com/

Rutland Water parkrun – New year Day special – 1st January 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2018 saw us breaking new ground at Rutland Water parkrun, with our first New Years Day special parkrun. The later start time meant that those up for a challenge could do two parkruns in one day. So, congratulations go to the 67 parkrunners who did Peterborough parkrun, then came to us. A special shout to Sean MCAULIFFE, who managed to come to us after doing Leicester Victoria parkrun! Hope you've all had a nice relaxing afternoon.

It was a little chilly for the run, but at least we had a little respite from Saturdays wind! Better conditions meant more personal bests, with 19 setting new fastest times. Well done all. We saw a lot of first timers too, with 76 people having their first go at Rutland Water. Maybe some visitors from Peterborough there, but if you were having your first go, or have a New Years Resolution to stay fit and have fun, we hope to see you back soon. :)

Welcome to parkrun, first timers:-

  • Ian SCANTLEBURY
  • Kate BOOTH
  • June BARTLETT
  • Gill MACDUFF
  • Nicola ISAAC
  • Robert CLARK
  • Chris RAYNER-COOK
  • Nick WALNE
  • Johnathon DRISCOLL
  • Cameron RAYNER-COOK
  • Samuel SCHOFIELD

Talking of resolutions, one nice one could be to volunteer a couple of times a year? If everyone who ran did this, we would be covered for every run :D
We're currently looking for marshals for the 13th January, so if you think you can help, please contact us via the Facebook Volunteer page, or send us a mail to rutlandwaterhelpers@parkrun.com. Hope to see you soon.

Thanks to everyone who brought delicious cakes along too. Just right on a chilly morning

Happy parkrunning,
Darren (Run Director of the day), and the Rutland Water parkrun team.

Tessa, our resident baker, kindly baked delicious mince pies and star shortbread for every parkrunner! Thank you to Morag for donating the Carol sheets for our marshals, and to everyone who brought their jingle bells, including Sarah Wells!

The local Oakham fire service were here to support parkrunners at the finish funnel! Well done to all the parkrunners who generously donated for the local food banks – we were able to fill three shopping trolleys! One of these went to the food bank in Coop, Oakham, and the other two went to the food banks in Tesco, Oakham.

Mark Ellis, blind from birth, completed the course without a tether; he was supported by a team of guides around him. We think this is the first time this has ever been achieved in the UK. A huge congratulations to Mark and all involved!
