Midweek Update – 4th January 2019

.

Untitled

After all the excitment of the New Year's Day event on Tuesday, we're back to the regular parkrunday every Satruday @ 9am.  However there's the potential for a busier than normal parkrun this week, so if you're one of those thinking about joining us for the first time, please do, you'll hopefully love it, there will almost certainly be plenty of other first timers, and you can enjoy a well earned coffee at the cafe afterwards (please read on for a bit more information)!  If you're a regular at Shorne, please keep an eye out for those first timers, a friendly face pointing them in the right direction could make all the difference to their morning's experience.

The only possible issue tomorrow, is the remperature overnight, which is to drop to freezing, however as the weather has been dry we're hopeful any ice won't have any real impact on the event.

.

Volunteers

We have quite a few volunteer opportunities on Saturday, including timing, scanning, marshaling, plus helping out on finish tokens, taking photos or run report writer.

If you are able to help out this Saturday, or in future weeks, please drop us an email (shornewoodsoffice@parkrun.com) or come and find someone in hi-viz on Saturday.  You can find the roster for the next few weeks here

.

So if you are a first timer here are a few things to be aware of:

  • Firstly if you haven't registered yet, you can do so here, or if you've lost your barcode you can find details of how to retrieve is here
  • Whether you're new to parkrun / or it's your first time at Shorne Woods parkrun, firslty welcome, and secondly we have a new runners briefing at 8.55am.
  • Under 11's must be accompanied by an appropriate adult at all times.
  • Dogs are allowed, but only one per runner, and they need to be kept on a short lead.
  • DFYB! (don't forget your barcode!) no barcode, no result
  • We can't scan barcodes on a mobile phone, and the above rule of 'no barcode, no result' also applies here
  • Please give consideration to other runners & park users.
  • Only once through the finish funnel, go all the way through to the end, stay in order & don't forget to pick up a finish token.
  • Oh, and one more thing......enjoy!

If you have any questions not answered above, feel free to drop us an email (shornewoodsoffice@parkrun.com) or look out for someone in hi-viz on Saturday morning.

parkrun Podcasts:

If the week between parkrun seems to take forever to pass, as you long for your next hit of parkrunfun (or even if it flies by!) there are a couple of parkrun podcasts now available for you to enjoy, with the official parkrun podcast free weekly timed, along with the independent with me now, which for those who listened to the previous parkrun Show, is also brought to you by Nicola & Danny.

All feedback on the run reports, topics for future reports, or indeed letting us know you'd like to write it one week, gratefully received.

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow,

Jonathan

Shorne Woods parkrun – #299 – 8th December 2018

So it turns out the run report for the 1st December is a two parter!  As thanks to Ian Smith, from club Zero to Hero runners who had a club outing to Shorne on the 1st, he's kindly given us his take on the morning's event.

2018-12-01 001 012

Shorne Woods parkrun 1st December 2018.

As a club we occasionally have away days and this week Shorne Woods was the selected venue.

The weather was not ideal for heading out of the house. In fact the conditions were extremely wet and it was a hardy set of runners and even more determined volunteers who decided they should get some fresh air in a lovely country park.

There were 18 runners from “Zero to Hero runners” and an extra 2 (who are really with us but have parkrun club noted as “Orpington Road Runners”). We were also fortunate to bring some supporters and along with 4 people to volunteer, including a barcode scanner, funnel manager and a marshal (plus of course Ian writing this report!).

Parking is easy at Shorne Woods close to the start and near the cafe. Most car-shared and that helps with the Kent Country Parks parking charges. Getting out of the car on arrival proved difficult as the rain was falling heavily and keeping dry and warm for as long as possible did seem a good alternative.

A total of 177 runners gathered at the start line. I noted that this number was considerably lower than the average turn out (lowest turnout for nearly 9 months); but the consistent rain played its part in this. A number of umbrellas were out for the pre run briefing and warnings given for the potentially slippery bridges.

Then we were off – everyone accepted that they would end up very wet and receive a good splattering of mud. Saturday morning pace was easier for most but some took off seeking PB’s and a good finishing position.

It was my third visit to Shorne Woods and it does not seem like a three lap course to me as you run through the tree canopy and a winding path (mostly a good surface but the inevitable puddles in places). There is plenty to see on the route from the wood yard, playground and the encouraging Marshalls.

Outside of some of our group there were 5 first timers, brave to turn out in this weather. Hopefully they will now be hooked.

There were 8 unknowns; so they will remain unknown whether they had run a parkrun before here or elsewhere). The highest finishing “Unknown” was 7th.

Notable runs: There was one milestone achievement today – Pete Watson reaching his 50th run. He may not forget that in a while.

Doreen Abbot from our Zero to Heroes group managed a very impressive highest age related time improving the 75-79 age group best by almost 2 minutes.

I am not sure how, but in those weather conditions 19 of those who had run the course before gained PBs. Congratulations.

Those who finished early were now so wet they may as well cheer others over the finish line.

With the running out of the way it was now time to head to the Cafe. A reward for getting very wet this morning was bacon sandwiches etc and coffee. There was a very warm welcome in the cafe from the regulars and other tourists.

Thanks Ian for a great report, and hopefully your fourth visit to Shorne Woods will be slightly drier!  And so to to last week's event, which was in fact drier than the 1st December...

...Congratulations to Mericka & Pete on reaching a parkrun milestone, along with the 14 of you with a new PB, and of course all the girls from the U9/10s Gravesham Girls & Ladies Football Club for completing their sponsored run.

Pete has run 43 of  his parkruns at Shorne, with the remaining 7 coming at Brighton & Hove parkrun and Banstead Woods parkrun.  For Mericka, she's run 92 at Shorne, with the remaining 8 coming at 7 different events, including Plymvalley parkrunSt Albans parkrun, and a number of the local Kent parkruns.

PBs this week came from the following parkrunners:

Elizabeth Ann EATON, Eleanor CHISHOLM, Samantha STREVENS, Bryan RELF, Ieuan HILL, Joe LYONS, Ruby MERRIMAN, Dorothy CALLER, Rosemary MOORE, Mary WHITTAKER, Theo CORNWELL, Andrea CORNWELL, Will Cornwell CORNWELL, Bolaji OLATOYE

A huge thank you to all this week's volunteers for another cracking event, this week's superstars were:

Amanda Louise CROWLE  •  Andrew HARRIS  •  Andrew PATERNOSTER  •  Bernard PRESSMAN  •  Dawn GRANGER  •  Donna MARTIN  •  Emily MURRILL  •  Gary GROUTAGE  •  Geoffrey BAINS  •  Graham WRIGHT  •  Ian AUBORN  •  John CROCKFORD  •  Jonathan CROWLE  •  Julie ASPINALL  •  Keira HOPTON  •  Lesley WRIGHT  •  Maggie HARRIS  •  Peter GRANGER  •  Sian THOMAS  •  Susan Louise BEECHAM  •  Terry CADOGAN  •  Wendy CHATMAN

We've a fairly full roster for this parkrunday, although we do still need a Tail Walker, a barcode scanner & another marshal or two, photographer & run report writer are also up for grabs.

If you are able to help out this Saturday, or in future weeks, please drop us an email (shornewoodsoffice@parkrun.com) or come and find someone in hi-viz on Saturday.  You can find the roster for the next few weeks here

Change to the Finish Area

With the recent wet weather we've had to move the scanning / water table.  The scanning is now by the leap frog logs just before you get to the finish funnel, however don't worry if that means nothing to you - all will become clear in the morning!

The one point to note is that this is alongisde the course, so once you have been scanned pelase be considerate to your fellow parkrunners by looking before you step onto the path - thank you.

Christmas & New Year's Day

With Christmas closing in fast here are two important announcements, the first relating to Father Christmas visiting Shorne Woods Country Park, the second about extra opportunities to parkrun over the festive break!!!

The one casualty of the rain last week, was the postponement of pacers until this week (8th December) at the moment we only have two, so if you're able to join Ian & John in hopefully providing pacers this week (the forecast is looking good for the morning) then please drop us an email (shornewoodsoffice@parkrun.com).

Shorne Woods parkrun – #297 – 24th November 2018

Shorne Woods parkrun Run Report – 24.11.18

2018-11-24 001 009

So this week was a bit of a chilly, cloudy and slight wet parkrun but despite this many people still came along to run, jog and walk. Personally, I enjoy running in the winter more than the summer months, strange, yes I know. I find the run more interesting having to jump over puddles and attempt to avoid some of the mud. Plus, I don’t look quite so much like a tomato after.

2018-11-24 001 022

I would like to say a massive thank you to all the volunteers that wrapped up in all their layers to ensure that we could all run on Saturday. Some of them give up their own running time to make sure that the event still goes ahead for everyone else. It can’t be easy to stand out in the cold on a Saturday morning and still look so cheery and give lots of encouragement but they all did:

 

Annmarie ADAMS  •  Barbara OCKENDON  •  Bethan CARTER  •  Colin DINWOODIE  •  David REID  •  Dawn GRANGER  •  Eileen HUDSON  •  Emily MURRILL  •  Gary GROUTAGE  •  Jo BEADSWORTH  •  John WILLIAMS  •  Jonathan CROWLE  •  Joyce BELL  •  Karol TOMKINS  •  Lily NORMAN  •  Martin FLYNN  •  Peter GRANGER  •  Rebekah PASHLEY  •  Robert Norton SIBLEY  •  Sarah TERRY  •  Susan Louise BEECHAM  •  Terry CADOGAN

 

Annmarie

 

Thanks to Annmarie for this week's report, and also thank you & congratulations for volunteering for the 25th time, and in doing so earning her purple volunteer t-shirt!

2018-11-24 001 158

Milestones were also reached by Tara Nash, Peter Williams (who both completed their 50th parkrun) and Kevin Denny who made it to 100!

Tara has run all her parkruns at Shorne Woods, Peter has run at 6 different events, with most of his parkruns coming at Cannock Chase parkrun, while Kevin has run at 13 different events, including North Beach parkrun in South Africa (just before completing Comrades Marathon, a 90km adventure earlier this year!)

Congratulations to the three of them, as well as Annmarie.

Congratulations also goes to the 20 of you with a shiny new PB:

Bolaji OLATOYE, Ruby MERRIMAN, Bryan RELF, Theo CORNWELL, Narinder GILL, Paul MANTLE, Sue PIPER, Karen SPRINGHALL, Kimberly SPRINGHALL, Georgia MARSHALL, Will Cornwell CORNWELL, Declan DOREY, Mason RICKARD, Rosalind HOLDEN, David BAKER, Mary WHITTAKER, Nicola DUNN, Ieuan HILL, Richard CARTER, Elizabeth Ann EATON

Potential change around the Finish Area

With the recent wet weather there is a chance that we won't be able to use the finish area for scanning / gathering on.  We'll know for definite when we arrive at Shorne in the morning, so Dawn will let you know in the pre-run briefing tomorrow (so extra quiet please!)

If we do have to move the scanning, it'll be by the leap frog logs just before you get to the finish funnel, however don't worry if that means nothing to you - all will become clear in the morning!

Volunteers

2018-11-10 001 008

We've a fairly full roster for this parkrunday, although as it's pacers week it would be great to add to the 5 we already have.  In addition there's a marshal, funnel manager and photographer are also volunteer roles up for grabs.

If you are able to help out this Saturday, or in future weeks, please drop us an email (shornewoodsoffice@parkrun.com) or come and find someone in hi-viz on Saturday.  You can find the roster for the next few weeks here

Shorne Woods parkrun – #296 – 17th November 2018

2018-11-17 001 002

Yet again we were spoiled with good weather last Saturday, which helped 31 of you achieve a new PB, and for at least one more week meant we were still able to use the the finish green to gather after the run.  For those of you that haven't been with us over winter before, normally by now we've moved off the green (as it's turned into a bit of a bog) and are trying to make best use of the path at the back of the finish funnel, along with the barked area containing the leap frog stumps shortly before the finish (will we make it to December before switching...probably not now I've typed that!).

Back to those 31 of you with a new PB, congratulations to the following parkrunners:

Nicholas BANNAYI, Caroline WOOLDRIDGE, Michael OSBORNE, Paul WHITTAKER-MEASOR, Georgia MARSHALL, Kimberly SPRINGHALL, Charlotte FENTON, Robert KEEGAN, Richard SELLWOOD, Jack DOUSE, David BAKER, Kerry DINNING, Mary WHITTAKER, Michael FOURIE, Peter MOORE,

Robin HEEL, Dorothy CALLER, Karl EATON, Karen WOODHAMS, Ainsley VINALL, Julie ASPINALL, Gemma DAND, Caitlyn FOURIE, Wendy CHATMAN, Rebekkah HAGGAR, Lenore GROUTAGE, Michael CRONIN, Matthew READ, Lloyd QUINN, Enzo WATKINS, Liz HAMER

2018-11-17 001 042

Congratulations also goes to Ian TWAITS (in the long sleeve black top above) who completed his 50th parkrun, and was the solitary parkrunner reaching a parkrun milestone this week.  Ian has run 48 of his parkruns at Shorne Woods, with the other two coming at Rosliston parkrun & Dartford parkrun.

If you have a milestone you wish to celebrate with the parkrun community at Shorne, feel free to message us, or come and let us know when you arrive at Shorne on the Saturday.  We try and keep an eye when people are nearing parkrun milestones, however there's always a chance we may miss it, so please let us know so we can give you a well deserved mention.
