Southampton parkrun #292 – 13th January 2018

by Nic Woollard


For those of us in our parkrun community with long memories from their childhood, there used to be a programme on BBC1 called Record Breakers. For a long while, it was hosted by a gentleman by the name of Roy Castle with twins Ross and Norris McWhirter. More latterly, it was presented by Cheryl Baker (she of Bucks Fizz fame) and Kriss Akabusi. It showcased a wide variety of attempts from people trying to get their achievement into the Guinness Book of Records.

Saturday's event #292 was our own Record Breaker in many different ways. Run #291 the previous weekend was tantalisingly close to an attendance record with 1067 people joining us on the Common. This week, we absolutely blew that number out of the water with 1134 parkrunners packing The Flats out for the mass start. Fortunately, the efficiency of our set up, finish tokens, funnel and token scanning volunteers meant that we were able to cope well with our ever burgeoning number. Helping with our motivation and bringing a smile to everyone's faces was the excellent music of the Tuba Libres band.
As you know, parkrun consists of a 5k run, run/walk or walk, whichever way you choose to complete it. Many of us aim to beat our bests each week, however, a quick Google has revealed a small series of quirky records, some of which are listed below.

Backwards Running: Brian Godsey from the USA ran a 5k in 2008 looking over his shoulder and in reverse in an astounding time of 19:31:89. Many of us can only dream of running this fast going forward the right way around the course!

Fancy Dress Running: In 2014, Adam Togami, also from the USA, ran a 5K race in 23:25:00 seconds. He was dressed as a penguin and to make it even more surreal, he kept juggling three tennis balls throughout the run.

Most runners at a 5k event: 86,549 people competed in an event organised by the Visakhapatnam District Olympic Association (India), in Visakhapatnam, India, on 23 June 2013. It makes you wonder if they had barcodes or were chip timed. If it was the former, I would have to take pity on the manual timers and the barcode scanners!

Most runners linked to complete a 5k race: The most runners linked to complete a 5k race is 179 and was achieved by The Charlotte Running Club (USA) in Huntersville, North Carolina, USA, on 13 December 2014. All participants were tethered together for the complete race. Can you imagine the chaos that would bring if we tried our record attempt one Saturday!

Talking of records, Alan RUSHTON ran a superb 23:50:00 at our event on Saturday. What is even more remarkable, is that Alan lowered the record in the VM75-79 age category at the same time.
Finally, Congratulations go to Laura MCKENZIE (including baby bump) on reaching the 250 Club today, Other notable milestones achieved included, Emily LLOYD, joining the 10 Club. Moving into the 50 club with their red shirts are: John COSGROVE, Mag KUSHNER, Darren MOORE and Joe SHELLEY on joining the 50 Club. Hitting the century of runs this week were Jason HAMPTON, Nicholas MYERS (in a most excellent model spitfire costume), Julian RATHKE, Simon TAPP, Harper TOWNS and Inez WALKER. Although not quite hitting the mark for her green shirt just yet, Alice YATES moved on to her 200th parkrun.

Southampton parkrun #291 – 6th January 2018

by Jill White

New Year and a new start


The numbers attending Gareth JONES'S first timer briefing this morning was surely an indication that it was going to be a busy, busy morning at Southampton parkrun today. We were not disappointed! A staggering 1067 people ran, jogged and walked brought in by tail walkers Mike and Tina MILLS. An army of marshals kept everyone in order and ensured that the runners were cheered, encouraged and warned of any hazards, and that the funnel moved as quickly as possible whilst the scanners worked hard to process the finish tokens. Back at the café, another army thawed out sorting and putting all those little tokens back in order ready for next week. Our grateful thanks go to all of them. Let's not forget Event and Run Director John GRANT along with Rachel who directed today's event.
Whilst it was not quite a record attendance today it was impressive that so many turned up on such a cold morning. Numbers were no doubt boosted by the cancellation of Winchester and Eastleigh parkruns due to their courses being just too muddy and wet to use and we are always pleased to welcome our near neighbours. We are certainly fortunate that our course is pretty weather proof - only ice and snow will prevent Southampton from going ahead (other than planned closures due to other events) but it is always worth looking at the website/Facebook if you have any doubts.

Today's run was the third this week - 225 Southampton parkrunners battled round Netley Abbey and the Common in the annual New Year's Day double (another 21 came from other nearby runs). For others it was their first run. There were 62 brand new first time runners and a further 48 on their 2nd or 3rd runs. Included in these were new runners Ruth and Jim HODDER on their second runs. They were encouraged into coming along by their son, Steve from Winchester parkrun, and were pleased just to get around on New Years Day but this week both of them posted a faster time along with 17 other 2nd/3rd time runners. Well done to all of them and we hope that you are motivated to come along again and again. We can't always guarantee a PB but we can guarantee a warm welcome and a great run. There were 76 PBs in total today.

At the other end of the scale, there were some 'old hands' running today lead by Sarah ALDRIDGE from Winchester who notched up her 435th run. There were 7 runners in the 300+ run bracket. For those runners who have just started this may seem daunting and unattainable but it is possible, just come along week by week and make new friends, the occasional PB and feel a lot better for it and you will get there. Chasing Sarah's high target were some milestone runners - Dean JONES and Aiman ZETANI reached their 150th, Rachael GOLDSTRAW ran her 100th, Glenn PRAGNELL, Tony CUMMINGS, James GAVIN ran their 50th. Chris LOTERY also ran his 50th and this is probably more impressive as it was his 17th birthday; it is brilliant that he chose to get up early on his birthday and run 5k in the cold! If I could even remember my 17th birthday, I am sure I didn't even think of doing that! 6% of the runners were under 18 today and 6% were 60+. This shows the breadth of age of runners here today. Special mention must go to Alan RUSHTON who lowered the VM 75-79 record by almost 4 minutes to 24.06. I understand it may not be possible to run every week but I did notice from the results Drew COSTELLO who notched up his first run at Southampton today. This was only his second ever parkrun - his first was in 2014 in Dunedin, NZ. This surely must be the furthest parkrun from Southampton and we welcome him here and hope he will not leave it quite so long until his next run.

Commiserations go to the runner who hurt her back today whilst high-fiving a fellow parkrunner!
So, whatever your reasons for running/volunteering today - New Year resolutions, post-Christmas weight shedding, training or otherwise, we hope you will come back next week and run again and also come to the Hawthorns for a post run coffee and get to know some new parkrunners.

Happy New Year and Happy Running

Southampton parkrun #290 – 1st January 2018

by Gareth Jones

New Year's Day is traditionally a time for reflecting on the year just completed, and looking ahead to the one just beginning, so here goes. Southampton parkrun started 2017 with our largest ever NYD attendance of 552 (but see below), and a JM15-17 course record for Zakariya MAHAMED. Others who set new age category records later in the year were Rosemary ARMSTRONG (VW75-79), Mary COLLETT (VW70-74), Claudia LANCE JONES (JW15-17), Rebecca MOORE (SW25-29), Peter POND (VM 75-79) and Cath WHEELER (VW55-59). Well done, all of you!

Once the hangovers have cleared, New Year resolutions always bring good attendances, and 2017 was no exception, with several January and February events topping the 900 mark. This was good preparation for another surge in the spring, inspired by the Southampton Half Marathon, when our resources were stretched to the limit by four successive four-digit attendances, peaking at a record 1074 on 13 May. Fortunately, Event Director John GRANT and his expert team of Run Directors had seen this coming, and their preparations ensured that the volunteers and the funnel coped admirably with the crowds,

Many of our runners qualified for white, red and black parkrun club T-shirts in 2017, and a select few acquired the green one that denotes particularly obsessive dedication, but nobody did it in quite such style as John himself, accompanied (to his evident surprise) by the Southampton Ukulele Jam. Congratulations to all of you, and good luck in your quest for the next one.

After a brief spell on our summer course, we had to return to our 2-lap winter course when work started on improving the play area, denying us access to the path alongside it. By the end of October, this work was complete, and we were able to return to our summer course, This was enhanced, courtesy of the Council, by a new gravel path replacing the Cowherds turn, thus giving us a grass-free all-year course for the first time. After a little trial and error (remember the Bellemoor squiggle?) and a lot of work with the surveyor's wheel, we came up with an improved version of this course, which avoids lapping and crossing, and which finishes on the larger and (slightly) drier side of The Flats. It is a little unfortunate that runners meet the choke point at the bridge so early, but effective marshalling and Ian KINGSWELL's red and white tape have prevented anyone drowning (so far). The other slight disadvantage is that fast and slow runners use The Flats in opposite directions at one stage, but if everyone keeps to their right then collisions can be avoided.

The statistics at the bottom of this page are awe-inspiring. For instance, the total distance travelled by our parkrunners since we started represents a journey to the Moon, round the far side, and back home again. No doubt each of those 28,315 PBs gave their owners enormous satisfaction, but the two that most impressed me in 2017 were those by Khalid ELKHEREIJI, improving his best time from 20:25 to 19:46 and then again to 19:36. Good, but not outstanding, you might think. Well, Khalid is one of several visually impaired athletes we have, who run with a guide, and under those circumstances, times like that are amazing.

Others who impressed me in 2017 were Sheila FOX and Trevor HILLIER, for their consistent appearances at or near the top of the age-graded table, and non-runners but almost permanent volunteers Barbara COGMAN and Sue WILSON, whose immense contributions to Southampton parkrun are greatly appreciated.

Enough of the past: what happened today? Despite the drizzly weather, an amazing total of 886 runners decided to start 2018 as they meant to continue, by keeping fit and having some fun. Richard WALDRON declared his intentions by finishing first, a feat he managed seven times in 2017, while Valeria SESTO, an occasional visitor from Lymington Woodside parkrun, was first woman home. Many runners, including myself, took advantage of the later start to enjoy some extra time under the duvet, whereas others arrived with the healthy glow and thick coating of mud that indicated a brave or possibly foolhardy NYD double. Flynn DODKIN qualified for the 10 Club, while John HARRINGTON, Susan and Stephen MADDOCKS and Ryan WILSON joined the 50 Club, and Vivien ALEXANDER, Darren PALMER and Chris SELFE joined the 100 Club. Other milestones were passed by Adam WILLS (150th parkrun) and Paul TONGS (200th), while someone else whose name escapes me chalked up his 350th [ed: Congratulations Gareth]. Today's RD Rob KELLY tells me that today was his 250th Southampton parkrun, whereas the website thinks he has done 251; whoever has got their sums right, he is by a fair distance the first of us to achieve this target.

What about 2018? It is easy to extrapolate the figures, and to predict that we will soon be back to 1000+ attendances, perhaps in late spring, or even this month if the weather is on our side. I can see Mahamed MAHAMED, or possibly one of his brothers, shaving a few more seconds off his course record, though Lorna RUSSELL's 16:40 looks set for a long life: it is over four years since any woman came within half a minute of it. Age category course records will continue to fall, but the trend is now for the juniors and veterans to do this, while the senior categories seem largely to have peaked. A whole bunch of people will qualify for club T-shirts, with Rachel GRANT, who does so much behind the scenes to help John with the parkrun administration, leading the way into the 250 Club.

And what would I like to happen in 2018? A long period getting the best out of our new course would be very welcome, with as few cancellations and moves to route B as possible. Personally, after 10 weeks out with an infected leg, I would love to get back to my current respectability target of two times PB. It would be nice to widen our volunteer base, for instance with a few willing to take over all or part of course set-up on the occasions when I'm unavailable. Finally, the Council have always been good to us, so perhaps they could encourage more visitors to the Common by renaming our recommended parking places: Downhill Lane and Resting Place Road would sound so much more inviting!

Southampton parkrun #289 – 30th December 2017

by Roger Bradley


On a Thursday we are all scraping ice off our cars while the rest of the country came to a stop because of a few inches of snow. Forty eight hours later and the west wind doth blow and by the time runners had crossed the line the temperature is well into the 40s and by the afternoon into the 50s. It may have been warm but the rain and snow around the country did mean that a few parkrun events had to be called off because of waterlogged courses. But not Southampton, which apart from a few puddles on the gravel parts of the course, was reasonably dry. Just do not tread on the grass.

A big thank you to Ian Kingswell from the Council who has been busy before each parkrun over the festive period to clear the route of debris and ensure that it is safe for runners. We really do appreciate all he does behind the scenes each week that enables us to use the beautiful common whatever the weather!

Fifteen seconds between the top four finishers with Matt EDMUNDS of Hasting Runners crossing the line first in 17.05 with Hardley runner, Tim ANETTS just four seconds behind. Hannah KNAPTON of Winchester and District AC led the ladies home in 21st place with a time of 19.12 followed by Emily TRUMPELMANN, 20.09 in 36th place.

Two runners celebrated their 100th parkrun; Christine HORSBURCH with a time of 33.10 and not too far behind was Mark HALFORD, 33.31. Three runners gained the 50 mark on the day, Peter ROBBINS, Hanna WOOD and Ian GRASMEDER with five runners running who had passed 250. Do you have 300 plus parkruns in you? Also three running on Saturday are well on their way to clocking up 350 with Gareth JONES on 349, thus reaching his next time he runs.

As, Southampton parkrun now has a resident signer every week, Ian GRASMEDER has asked runners to encourage any deaf runners that they know of to come along on a Saturday morning as they will be well looked after.

Always, very evident on the common, are members of two local running clubs, Itchen Spitfires of Woolston and Lordshill Road Runners from the western part of Southampton, both providing many of the volunteers week after week. One this week from LHRR was Julie LAVINGTON of Shirley who stood by the bridge over the stream on the path leading to Coronation Cross roads. This has now become an important volunteer spot as the mass of runners, 600+ this week make their way up hill. Volunteering for the first time was Itchen Spitfires member, Perry SEYMOUR of Sholing while his wife Lindy was going to finish the morning running her 992nd kilometre of her 1000 kilometre challenge.

No Sue at Coronation Cross Roads this week but her three substitutes, Sarah SHERMAN and Andrew LOTERY with his daughter Lizzy were well in evidence with their clapping and cheering as runners passed by. Michelle NEARS of Lordswood and another LHRR member has completed the Great South Run twice and ran her first half marathon last month and feels that running parkrun has helped her to lose weight. John STANLEY of Otterbourne is becoming a regular parkrunner. Although mostly having run at Winchester he prefers driving down to Southampton and is completing his 47th this week.

More and more dogs are bringing their owners along for the run among them were Steve JOHNSON and Steve NOTON.

Southampton parkrun #288 – 25th December 2017

by Jill White

Ho-ho-ho and off we go!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS to one and all from everyone at Southampton parkrun!


Whilst it was a little damp, it was wonderful to see 585 runners on the Common on Christmas morning. Before 9am, however, a small army of elves had been out and set the course up - no magic involved, just a dedicated bunch of volunteers and our massive thanks go out to them. Also thanks to the cheery marshals and musicians who helped the runners on their merry ways. See below for a list of Santa's little helpers this week.

There was a delightful array of Santas, reindeer, penguins, elves and the odd turkey amongst the many runners and it was a really colourful sight to behold as the parkrun 'snake' meandered around the Common. week - old Isabel (who worked hard giving out tokens at the finish funnel) to grannies and grandpas. Laura McKENZIE brought along most of her family; her father Paul O'LOUGHLIN volunteered whilst her brother Paul O'LOUGHLIN from Burgess parkrun enjoyed his first run at Southampton (dressed probably unwisely in full Santa kit). The first Santa home was William BRYAN in 6th place with a PB so obviously the extra clothing helped him!

Everyone was in good spirits and eager to make room for their Christmas lunches. Many were content to run in family groups whilst many were still looking for that elusive PB. Did your letter to Santa requesting a PB work? Obviously 41 of our runners asked Santa nicely enough.

There were lots of milestones today - our very own RD Rob KELLY (who celebrated his 250 last Christmas Day) clocked up his 300th run (and also his 200th at Southampton, impressive stats Rob), Elaine WINTER, Tim HART and Eddie BULPIT (200), Sue SLEATH (150), Sue MASSEY (100) and Becky PETLEY (100 with a PB as forecast!), Alex COOPER, Michael CARTER and Simon HILLIARD (50). Well done to everyone.

So, over the two Christmas runs, 1267 people ran - amazing! In a hurry to get the turkey in the oven today was Richard WALDRON who was first over the line on both days. Special mention must go today to Annie MANN (JW11-14) who ran an impressive PB of 19.26 and achieved the highest age-grade this week (85.59%).

One more parkrun left in 2017! Your last chance for a PB this year? Do join us on Saturday 30th or better still, volunteer this week and end the year on a high.
Have a joyful week.
