Run Report for the 12th Jan

Good morning everyone. Thanks to everyone who came through to run, walk, chat and volunteer, it was great to see everyone.

We had a few new faces and some visitors from Rugby, Hartlepool & South Shields.

We had a special guest from BBC Radio Tees who was speaking to some of our runners and organisers so remember to tune in on Monday and have a listen.

Remember next week we have Swift Tees taking over to fundraise for a new laptop, this is massively appreciated from the core team at Stewart's and all of the runners. Remember to say thanks as you pass any of the Marshalls next week.

Thanks to all of this week's volunteers.

Event #339

Stewart parkrun, Middlesbrough
Event number 339
5th January 2019

Well that was a busy morning. After a record breaking NYD parkrun we did it again. That was officially the busiest Stewart parkrun (not held on New Years Day) ever. It really is brilliant news that so many of you have chosen to get active in 2019 and support your local parkrun. Hopefully we will see you all again in the coming weeks.

You may have noticed a camera crew at the event today. The Tonight programme on ITV is focusing on the impact of stress and the different methods of managing it. It has been recognised that exercise and group activity is an effective method to reduce stress and boost well being. I am sure it will be interesting viewing - the show airs at 7.30pm on 31st January 2019. Look out for it.

Of course I have to thank our amazing volunteers who helped out today. Despite only having a few days to rally support, we had a great response to our appeals and had all our positions covered in no time at all. It really does make the Run Directors life a lot easier. It was also pacer week so a big shout out to those who donned the bibs and watches.

We had some great milestones today. Junior runner Harvey WHITE completed his 10th run today and it was lovely to see Carolyn OLLIS return after some time out to complete her 50th parkrun. Diane UMPLEBY achieved 50 runs today, with Fiona ROE and Charlotte HOWARD smashing their 100th parkruns. Nigel BELL ran his 200th with us today and Bill SIGSWORTH celebrated his 250th parkrun. Some amazing achievements - well done all!!!

This week 425 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 33 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 35 volunteers:

Nicola PEARSON • Alan GUY • John LEES • Sam SMETHURST • Sarah DONNELLY • Kenny SALKELD • Jon TAPPER • Michael MCCANN • Fred FORTH • William Anthony SIGSWORTH • Ruth MCMASTER LEES • Peter ROXBY • Alan MCGARRITY • Philip CAWOOD • Lucy TAPPER • Molly TAPPER • Alison TAPPER • Jen MILSOM • Leah DONNELLY • Ruby DONNELLY • Stephen O'HARA • Julian SPOOR • Rachel EMERY • Rob POYNTER • Amy THOMPSON • Kirsty CATTERSON • Philip SANDERSON • Alan BLACKWOOD • Alex STEADWARD • Jennifer O'CALLAGHAN • Lisa PATTISON • Andrew HARRIS • Mike STANLEY • Jamie RICHARDSON • Lucy RICHARDSON • Stephen O'HARA • Jason PATTISON • Dean McCormack • David JUKES

Good afternoon everyone,
Where do I begin with yesterdays parkrun?
As you may have noticed there was a little (well maybe a bit bigger than little) technical hitch with the timer, this resulted in initial panic from myself and thoughts of 'will anyone notice if I disappear?' to 'we've got this'. I am so proud of everyone who stepped up to offer help and support us.

Huge shout out to our amazing volunteers:
Alan GUY • Amy GALLILEE • Sandra MAIN • Lisa HENDRY • Sarah DONNELLY • Andrew Greg HENDRY • Diane JOHNSON • Kenny SALKELD • Glenn JOHNSON • Fred FORTH • Mark WATERS • James HENDRY • Leah DONNELLY • Ruby DONNELLY • Sean DONNELLY • Andy STEEDMAN • Sharon WATERS • Roger OLDROYD • Jan BALDWIN • Alan BLACKWOOD • Sue BRADLEY • Leanne WELDRAKE • Tammy RASMUSSEN • Andrew SIMPSON • Daniel George HENDRY • Jamie RICHARDSON • Lucy RICHARDSON and Andrew HENDRY

It was total team work which meant we were able to process the results. Thank you so much to everyone who gave times, the use of a watch, stepped in to volunteer and a personal thanks from me to Alan for keeping me calm and to Sam who spent hours manually adding every runner in order to get the results processed.
This highlighted to me what an amazing parkrun community we have.

A warm welcome to those taking part for the first time, it was great to see visitors from Milton Keynes, Gloucester, Darlington and Albert - look forward to seeing you in the future.

We had a lovely young man Marshal - Jamie is completing his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award and has chosen Stewart parkrun to volunteer over the next 3 months, be sure to give him a wave as you pass.

Onto this weeks milestones:
One of our junior runners James Findlay completed his 10th run
Lindsey Scott has ran her 50th parkrun
Rachel Emery celebrated her 100th run with some very tasty cake
Very well done to you all

We had Christmas music, dancing, singing and cheering from our fabulous marshals, speaking of the festive season - we really need help filling the volunteer rota over the coming weeks.
If you are able to help, including New Years day - please comment or email stewartoffice@parkrun.com.

Event #333

Stewart parkrun, Middlesbrough
Event number 333
1st December 2018

Morning all - I hope you have dried out. The bibs are in the wash and the tokens are on the radiator. Despite the rain we had a fabulous event this morning. There's a lot to say so I'll crack on.

Firstly as always I'd like to say a massive thank you to our volunteers. Despite the weather we had a full crew setting up, cheering runners on, pacing, scanning, timekeeping etc. We had some new volunteers joining us today who loved the experience. Ben BARKER is completing his Duke of Edinburgh award so you will see him regularly at parkrun over the next few months (with his Mum Jo). Ben was scanning today and will no doubt try his hand at all the jobs parkrun has to offer. It really is fun and a great way to meet people. Let us know if you are available to help in the coming weeks.

We had some great milestones today with junior parkrunner Daniel KNOWLES-SLACK completing his 10th run, Steven DODDS doing his 50th, Stephen O'HARA on his 150th and Lewis BOURNER completing his 200th run (thanks for the Mince Pies). We were also celebrating a 70th birthday with Dave GIBSON who was completing his 74th parkrun - what an amazing achievement. Have a great day!!!

You may have noticed two young ladies got a bit tied up this morning. Leah DONNELLY and Lucy TAPPER completed a three-legged parkrun today. From kind donations and through guessing the number of sweets in the jar the girls were able to raise £62.34 for Cancer Research and Alzheimer's Society with more money pledged. Thanks to everyone for their support and helping these great charities.

And finally a quick reminder that we are doing the 'Double' on New Years Day. We will be setting off at Stewart parkrun at 9am and heading to Albert Park for 1030am. Its a great way kick-start your running for 2019 and to blow away a few cobwebs too. See you there.

This week 308 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 18 were first timers and 38 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 34 volunteers:

Alan GUY • Sam SMETHURST • Fiona ROWLING • Kenny SALKELD • Jon TAPPER • Jacquie Ann KELLY • Joanna Stephanie BARKER • Fred FORTH • William Anthony SIGSWORTH • Philip James NICHOLS • David JUKES • Ruth MCMASTER LEES • Peter ROXBY • Jeff BOYLE • Dean MCCORMACK • Mark WATERS • Molly TAPPER • Alison TAPPER • Sean MICKLEWRIGHT • Stephen O'HARA • Sharon WATERS • Roger OLDROYD • Kirsty CATTERSON • Philip SANDERSON • Lindsey SCOTT • Sharon MCLOUGHLIN • Clay ROUNDTREE • Denise ROBERTS • Benjamin BARKER • Sarah JONES • Ian WATSON • Emma ARMSTRONG • Catherine SHUTT • Mike STANLEY • Stephen O'HARA
