#96 – New Year’s Day 2018

01 January 2018, by Sue Fitton

Happy New Year 2018 from Stratford-upon-Avon parkrun!

This morning, 329 runners and several more volunteers ignored their hangovers to gather at the Stratford Rec just before 9am. After several weeks recently when the weather had thwarted three weather-related attempts to hold an event, including two day's previously, the flood waters had receded just enough to allow a New Year’s Day parkrun to go ahead. Mind you, this did lead to a slightly strange warning in the pre-brief – “all under 11s please stick with an adult or the swans may eat you!”

The chilly but dry conditions resulted in some speedy times, and everyone was done within 45 minutes. The fast times may have also been encouraged by those who were keen to head up the road to Leamington to “do the double”, around 140 people did this, including the Run Director who was spotted abandoning his blue vest and racing to his car as soon as the last runners/joggers were home! This did lead to some angst for the car park marshals, however, who were trying to ensure that no parkrunners were squashed by the mass car exodus! Bertie, however, wasn’t fazed by this:

An assortment of outfits graced the course including tutus and New Year Headbands – very festive. 22 people started the New Year with a new PB – congratulations! 102 runners were at Stratford for the first time, including 9 people running their first ever parkruns – welcome, and we hope to see you all again soon.

The following milestones were also celebrated today:
Samuel YOUNG was running his 10th Parkrun and Annabelle GREENWAY, Jennifer MCCORMICK and John CHERRY were running their 50th. Natalie DELLAR ran her 200th before heading off to Leamington for her 201st.

parkrun #95 Alison’s Long Goodbye

Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you until we meet again.

In what is probably the most drawn-out goodbyes known to man, this is it.

Saturday was my final parkrun at Stratford-upon-Avon (November 11 was my last as a run director) after 15 months of being back in the UK.

On Friday I head back to New Zealand with my family (stupidly booked a Friday flight, which means spending parkrunday in the air).

In my 15 months of running at Stratford there have been five different courses:

  • The original that started near the tramway bridge
  •  The regatta and river festival alternative (3 and 3/4 laps)
  • The current start by the tennis courts but where we ran around the trees opposite the theatre
  • The course that cut across in front of the trees because we were asked to not run around them anymore
  •  The new boat club footpath course.

 

DSC_0284

This Pudding,-Tourist, Graham Lane, was doing his 50th

There have been two consecutive cancellations.

Prior to my arrival there was just one cancellation due to flooded paths, though we were on floodwatch last winter (and the river path flooded on the Sunday, which was good timing).

This past year I've run at 20 other parkrun courses, but it's home that has been the best for me.

Cake, coffee, friendly volunteers, dog biscuits if you run with a four-legged friend, the riverside path, views of Holy Trinity and the theatre.

The only thing I'd add from those I've visited is a Gruffalo statue and some ancient ruins.

To save you from stalking my parkrun profile to find out where I've been here is a helpful list: Amagerstrandpark (Copenhagen), Arrow Valley (will be there tomorrow for a final UK parkrun), Banbury, Bushy, Conkers, Evesham, Fountains Abbey, Grangemoor, Jersey (day trip from Birmingham airport), Kingsway (Gloucester), Leamington, Poole, Portobello, Queen Elizabeth, Rugby, Sherwood Pines, Upton House, Valentines, Wyre Forest, Yeovil Montacute.

And yes, you may notice they are in alphabetical order and I am missing a few letters. If only I'd thought about that in January and not August!

So what next? This is not goodbye to parkrun, merely an a bientot to Stratford.

I am returning to Rotorua, New Zealand, to Puarenga parkrun - a parkrun I started in June last year. It is the only parkrun in the world that runs through geothermal activity - keep to the path!

If you ever come to New Zealand on holiday and want to include a parkrun then you must make it Puarenga.

I can't promise you cake and coffee at the finish, but instead can show you Kiwi hospitality.

My alphabet challenge is hampered by there being only 18 parkruns in the country, though with two more starting in February I can at least knock off D (Dunedin), H (Hamilton Lake), I (Invercargill, a new parkrun), M (Millwater) and T (Taupo).

For O and Z I will have to travel to Oz , which has a nice ring to it!

As for N? I ran Norwich at Christmas last year as my sister lives there - she ran on Saturday too but forgot her barcode.

Thank you to everyone at Stratford for making me feel welcome when I first arrived and to the core team for being an awesome bunch.

I will be taking back lots of ideas on how to make Puarenga parkrun a great parkrun. And I will be back, I just don't know when.

There are two Christmas Day parkruns near to Stratford if you want to run off some of your mince pies.

Coventry parkrun is at 9am and Arrow Valley is at 10am.

There will be parkrun as normal next Saturday and then on New Year's Day you can run two.

Stratford-upon-Avon is at 9am and Leamington is at 10.30am. This is the only day of the year where you can run two UK parkruns on the same day and have them counted on your profile.

Parkrun #93 – Hilary’s story

 

Hello, Natalie here - I remember when tail walking last year chatting to a lovely lady who was just starting out at parkrun, and was worried she would be holding up her daughter as they were supposed to be going to the supermarket. This lady has now become a bit of an uber tourist visting many different parkruns with daughter Alison (one of our RDs) but as we all know there is no place like home and as a team we are so pleased to see Hilary Fraser doing her 50th run this weekend :-) she has kindly taken the time to write this weeks run report:

In the beginning, at my first parkrun I completed it in 55:48.

This weekend is a double celebration as it's my 68th birthday (on Sunday) and I also reached my 50th milestone run. This week I finished in 43:24 which I think is amazing.

When i got up this morning I was thinking that it was a big weekend, I've waited a long time for it to happen.

It was freezing cold but I still wanted to do it.

DSC_0162

I just wanted to get on with it. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it, even though I've finished 49 others. Finishing 49 doesn't mean as much to me as 50.

There have been weeks where I've not felt like running but I've still done it because I wanted to get to the end. I've enjoyed the company along the way.

Hilary1

If someone had suggested this would be me 18 months ago I wouldn't believe them. Even when I walked my first lap the first time I came along I never believed I could finish all three.

I've learned that I'm determined enough to do it.

Hilary2

Having people congratulate me on their way around today as they passed me meant a lot to me.

The second lap is my hardest as I can feel myself slow down. I see people pass me and I want to keep up but I feel like I'm going slower.

This week Alison (my daughter) got me to the finish. After she finished she ran back to find me – I was still by the river.

alisonandhil

As I'm coming into the funnel I tell myself to be like Mo Farah and sprint to the end. I wish I had that speed for the rest of the 5km!

Hilary3

If I can do it anyone can do it. Age is inconsequential. You've got to want to do it from inside and then it doesn't matter.

Hilary Fraser

[Thank you Hilary, Happy Birthday and well done - we look forward to celebrating your 100th with you!]

BOGOF #91 and #92

Stratford parkrun No. 92 was a dreary old day...probably the worst weather we've had yet for the actual run...grey, cold, persistent icy drizzle. We had some tourists from Melbourne...heaven knows what they made of it (though they did say the welcome they received was very warm). We also had a new photographer. Charlotte Williams was volunteering for the first time and took some fabulous photos...which perfectly captured just how grim Saturday 18th was! Thanks Charlotte and please do come back and take some more photos for us...perhaps when it's a little brighter.

Alison's mug.

Stratford parkrun number 91 was a sad day for the core team as we said goodbye to one of our Run Directors we temporarily borrowed for a year from Puarenga, New Zealand. Alison King, who was your RD last week, has contributed a lot to Stratford parkrun over the last year including, my favourite, donating statues of various animals holding fruit for our quiz night raffle. She has encouraged her mum, Hilary, to join our parkrun community and we hope she will continue with us even when Alison has flown back to NZ. Alison also took part in the Boston and London marathons this year raising money in memory of her father. Alison's last stint also tied in nicely with our RD Christmas dinner where she was presented with a fabulous mug and calendar to remember us all by.
The core team would like to thank Alison for all her hard work and wish her, husband Casey and son Axel all the best on their journey home to New Zealand and hopefully we can collect enough tea and cake donations to fly the core team out to see her by 2050!

parkrun #90- Seeing the parkrun From Both Sides.

 

 

I ran the parkrun this Saturday.

I don't often get to say this but this weekend I ran. It was a pb for me too, not the time I wanted but a pb no less. You see I've promised myself if I can get my parkrun time under 30 minutes I can buy those Sonos Speakers that I've been wanting for ages (Other speakers are available!). 1: 32 quicker and I could have been shopping right now. Oh well I will get it next time, which with my current shift patten will be the 23rd of December!

DSCN5752 Stratford parkrun

How to encourage runners to volunteer had some of the core team stumped.

I am one of those not so lucky ones who, due work, can't do the parkrun every week and longs for her 50th top (I'm going to bring a MASSIVE cake on my 50th). I'm at 43 runs so far so I think by the end of 2018 I should have it.

If I gave up this volunteering lark then I would have Sonos speakers, a 50 shirt and a belly full of cake by now. I have run directed at Stratford almost twice as many times as I have been able to run, may be I have my priorities wrong.......

But I haven't, parkrun needs people like me (getting my own trumpet out to blow), the other members of the core team and the 429 different volunteers we've had since Stratford parkrun was set up. If it wasn't for this dedicated bunch of people who will forgo a handful of runs a year, so others can run safely, parkrun wouldn't happen.
DSCN5757 Stratford parkrun

 

Once I had a week where volunteers were at a minimum and I had enough to marshal the course and that was it. Luckily when I said the run today couldn't be timed we had volunteers step forward- I mean what is a parkrun without that well done, heres your time text eh?

 

DSCN5756 Stratford parkrun

 

So I nearly lost my run this Saturday but the RD Natalie was very strict with me, I wasn't allowed to step in and volunteer, I had to run as it doesn't happen often and I thank her for that. But she still was begging for volunteers up until the last moment. I know how she feels, if you don't have a full roster by Thursday at the latest it starts getting stressful because you are worried about run safety foremost, niceties like tea, cakes and times come second to safety.

 

DSCN5759 Stratford parkrun

 

So numbers,

Since we have started at Stratford, out of the 4993 different runners who have ran the course 8.5% of them have volunteered with us at some point, many of that percentage volunteering more than once.

 

2787 people have registered Stratford as their home parkrun, we only need 0.9% of them to volunteer every week to have a successful parkrun and support their home run.

 

In the last month we have had to fill 135 volunteering slots and in one month we have only had 85 different people volunteer so we are relying on the same dedicated people.
DSCN5700 Stratford parkrun

So whats loosing one or two runs a year and cheering from the marshal points instead?

Once its done you will have a lovely clear conscience and will be able to run lighter- it has been proved somewhere that volunteering does give you a PB.

 

DSCN5702 Stratford parkrun

One last thing before I go, three questions-

Firstly ask yourself- How many times have I volunteered in the last year?

Next Saturday ask the person next to you- How many times have you volunteered in the last year?

Finally do the answers make you feel part of the parkrun family?
IMG_2600

Common Factor in all these volunteers pictures? Theyre all smiling- must be a happy thing to do!
