Skipton parkrun #233 13th January 2018

Another chilly morning in the park for the runners, walkers and volunteers. Well done everyone for getting out when staying in bed might have seemed the warmer option.

Congratulations to Gerardo Iannaccone (50 runs) and Hannah Jackson (10 runs) on your milestone runs.

Apologies if anyone trod in a present from one of our four-legged friends near the start and a very big thank you to the marshals who moved the sizeable remnants in time for the first runners coming round for the first time!

Stat for the day: This was the first time we've attracted over 200 runners and walkers in consecutive weeks, having had 207 last week. Can we get the hattrick next week?

Many congratulations to local stalwart John Hinchcliffe who completed his 100th parkrun this week; all of which have been at Skipton. There's a few people approaching 100 runs and 50 runs so we look forward to congratulating them. Please can friends & family tip us the wink when you know someone is there and achieving a 'milestone'.

16th December, Skipton parkrun cancelled

Sorry everybody, Skipton parkrun on 16th December is cancelled.

Inspections of the park Friday 15th found many patches of very slippery areas on the paths and especially on the downhill sections and on the corners / turns in the course. Whilst the ice is not as thick as last week, the extent is greater and the ice is less visible to either grit or avoid. Given that the temperature will fall over night the situation can only worsen.

The decision to cancel has not been taken lightly (it is only the second time that we have) but we do need to be mindful of the demands on volunteers and that it is better for people to miss a run when conditions are unpredictable rather than risk problems.

Upcoming Skipton parkruns (weather willing!)

  • Saturday 23rd December 9:00
  • Monday 25th December 9:30
  • Saturday 30th December 9:00
  • Monday 1st January 9:00 plus 10:30 at Pendle (see http://www.parkrun.org.uk/pendle/)
