What a gorgeous, bright morning we had at Stewart parkrun- one of our scanner machines wasn't feeling too bright and had a little malfunction. If you have not been included in the results please email stewartoffice@parkrun.com with your position / time and your barcode number and we will add you in. All times and positions are correct.

We welcomed lots of visitors today - I hope you enjoyed Stewart parkrun and the great community spirit, it would be lovely to see you again in the future.

A massive shout out to the amazing team of volunteers. Maybe you had a little 'dance' as you passed the music station or a high five before the slight incline! We rely on volunteers to ensure the event goes ahead - there are plenty of spaces on the roster over the coming weeks so please get in touch if you would like to join us.
It was lovely to see how many people thanked our volunteers during and after the run - it really does make us feel all warm and fluffy inside to know how much they are appriciated.

The Ali Brownlee 5k run takes place on Sunday 1 July - as a reminder the closing date to register is this Monday 25 June.

Looking ahead - Stewart parkrun celebrates its 6th birthday on Saturday 7 July - the dress up theme this year is books. Maybe you have always wanted to be Harry Potter, The BFG, Where's Wally, Alice in wonderland..... It would be fabulous if you could join us to celebrate, there may even be cake!

Perfect running conditions this morning - I love running in the rain. In weather like that its probably better to run than to marshal. Our volunteers are a hardy lot though and they turned out in force to make sure the run went ahead. It was also great to see so many of you trying new tasks as volunteers this morning. Respect is due!!

With visitors from Redcar and Albert parkruns and plenty of first timers our runners set off across the park. We had some great milestones today with James STRICKLAND (10), Martin HUGHES (50), Edward HAZLETON (50), Tammy RASMUSSEN (50), Alison TAPPER (100), Chris LLOYD (200) and Brian LAVERICK (200). Congratulations to you all on your amazing milestones - looking forward to seeing you model your new t-shirts soon.

Of course we will be back to do it all over again next week. Sarah is in charge of the event on Saturday so if you are able to help her and volunteer please let us know. Its always great to see some new faces.

Hello Stewart park runners

A fantastic turn out this morning and the rain held off for us!

My first time as run director and as with most things in my life, nothing goes without drama!
One of our runners took a tumble (I didn't expect to be running this morning but it all adds to my step count!). A huge thank you to everyone who stopped, took on dog minding duties, carried her to the buggy and helped out. Charli hope you make a speedy recovery and we see you back at Parkrun soon.
This is one of the things I really love about Stewart Park runners and volunteers - team work.

We had some brilliant milestone celebrations this morning:
Isobel Coe (junior) ran her 10th run, Pauline Campbell completed 50 runs and Alex Chung completed his 350th run aged 81 - congratulations to you all.

A HUGE shout out to our volunteers and pacers, thank you all so much for coming forward to help - the run would not go ahead without you.
Please could everyone take a look at the future rosters and get in touch if you are able to help out. If everyone volunteered just 2-3 times a year we would have full rota's and not have us panicking mid / late week.

That is it from me - I maybe run director again in the future (if they will have me back he he).

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you next week

Sarah

P.s Did I mention it would be great if everyone put their name forward to volunteer one week?

Another cracking morning. It was great to see so many first timers at Stewart Park in the sunshine. We also had visitors from far and wide including runners from Birmingham, Hartlepool, Peterlee, York, Kings Lynn and as far away as Albert Park. We hope you enjoyed our amazing parkrun.

Firstly everyone at Stewart parkrun would like to wish NYMAC Runners Joanna BAMLETT and Rob MOORE the best of luck with their wedding tomorrow. It was great to see that they and other family members chose to enjoy the parkrun to relieve any pre-wedding tension before the big day. I hope you have a fabulous time tomorrow and a happy and long life together.

Sharon HUSBAND was also celebrating her birthday today and decided to join us at parkrun. Thanks for coming and have a great day. Go easy on the Prosecco as you've got Northallerton 10K tomorrow!!!

Sorry if I scared anyone with the reports of a large dog on the loose within the park prior to the start. I wasn't made aware of any incidents with the dog and hopefully it and its owner were reunited.

I have a reputation as a Run Director of losing something every time I am at the helm and this week was no exception. Runners who crossed the line in positions 180 and 181 failed to hand in their finish tokens. If you have them please e-mail us and we will arrange return of the tokens so we have them ready for next week, otherwise I am going to be in serious trouble with Ruth and Sam (the Bosses).

Talk of next week reminds me that its Pacer Week on Saturday 2nd June 2018. We welcome pacers of all speeds so if you fancy a crack at it let us know and we will add you to the list. The more the merrier and you may help someone get a PB.

Finally I'd just like to say a massive thank you to all of the volunteers who turned up to help out at the parkrun this morning. Honestly without you we wouldn't be able to go ahead so your assistance is really appreciated. I know its a big sacrifice not to run but everyone appreciates your help. If you are free to volunteer on any future weeks please let me know and I will add you to the roster.

This week 323 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 31 were first timers and 60 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.

What better way to start a sunny Bank Holiday Weekend than enjoying Stewart parkrun. Lots of you came to join us and support this amazing event. We had visitors from Leamington Spa and Reading. I hope you enjoyed your time in the North East - the weather is always this good. There were also some fab milestones from 8 year old Oliver JONES completing his 10th parkrun to 19 year old Jessica SIMPSON celebrating her 150th (thanks for the cake and flapjack).

As usual I would like to say a massive thank you to all of our volunteers. We had a full team of marshals on the course which meant nobody got lost. Its also a great boost for all the runners to see friendly faces of encouragement at various points around the course. Can I say a particular big thank you to Roger who wasn't able to stay for the parkrun but was there bright and early to help set up before he had to leave. If you are able to help out next week let us know.

The first weekend of the month also means its Pacer Week at Stewart parkrun. Thanks to all those who paced to perfection (some more perfect than others) this week. If anyone fancies a go next time we encourage pacers of all speeds - the only condition is that you run with a bib and a smile.

Whilst sorting the tokens at the finish I noticed we are missing token number 253. We had quite a few first timers with us this week who may not be familiar with the process or maybe someone just forgot to scan. Honestly you are not I trouble but it would be great if you could get it back to us for next week. Let us know via Facebook or email at stewartoffice@parkrun.com.
