Event number 24th March 2018

Not sweltering today but thank goodness it was warmer than the last few weeks. We shared the lake this morning with 60+ anglers competing in a carp match with a top prize of £2000 so our runners took care to tiptoe past and not frighten the fish!

Many congratulations to Jackie Lockyer and Chantal Harp who both completed their 50th parkruns and to Colin Bates who completed his 100th run and came in as the first unassisted runner - a great performance. We also had a load of PBs, so well done to everybody.

An inspiration to us all was Alan Littlejohns walk round the lake. Returning after a serious illness he completed with a huge smile on his face! Great to see you back on the course Alan.

Next week is the Easter parkrun - donations of mini eggs and spot prizes very welcome. Please give to run director James Marshall on the day and tell him what you want your prize awarding for.

Many thanks to all the brilliant volunteers today - without them parkrun doesn't happen so if you can volunteer please email us at tamarlakeshelpers@parkrun.com There are some vacancies for next week, have a look at: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/tamarlakes/futureroster/

Event 179 17th March

A busy morning in the freezing cold with a bitter wind but it didn't snow until we had finished! It was the final week of the Couch to 5K programme. Ian Blythe kindly did a dynamic warmup across the bridge from Cornwall to Devon and back to prepare our runners. A big congratulations to those who have participated and done so well over the last 10 weeks. We look forward to seeing you all as parkrunners over the weeks to come! If you didn't get your certificate come and see Andree, the RD, next Saturday. A big thank you to all the pacers too.

It was also 'National Sleep In' day but our hardy park runners didn't take advantage and turned up in their pyjamas and little Jake our Marshal won the Ovaltine! It was also wonderful to see Alan Littlejohn back at parkrun in his onesie!

Don't forget to submit photos to the Millbrook Beds Facebook site for a chance to win a mattress.

Event 178 10th March 2018

It was good to be back after last weeks cancellation for snow. I was surprised to still see a little bit of snow when I went round early doors to do the course check so we definitely made the right decision.

A stiff headwind on the home stretch made conditions a little tricky but it was fabulous to see our C25K groups going from strength to strength. A good turnout too considering the forecast and it was lovely to see so many of you.

Tourist season appears to have started and we will be relying on our volunteers to make things go smoothly over the Easter break. We'll be instituting Car Park volunteers to help pre-run. This means that you can get a volunteer in and still do your run so its a win-win situation for all. There are also other volunteer roles that mean you can run. Pre-event set, Course check (you can run twice!), Post-event takedown. If you fancy any of these roles or any of the other roles please email : tamarlakeshelpers@parkrun.com

CANCELLATION – MARCH 3rd 2018

James very kindly went up to the lake today in his Land Rover Defender. The approach roads are treacherous and the car park sheet ice. Alongside that the course itself is frozen, icy and drifted snow. James had to go on the grass to navigate his way around.

This made our decision very easy. Please let as many people know as you can so that no one tries to navigate the lanes in the morning. Just way too dangerous.

Event #177 24th February, 2018

 

Another beautiful day in the sunshine, but goodness me was it cold. The water pipes were frozen, limiting the availability of teas and coffees but still great support for the cakes!

Don't forget next week the Frog Hopper Cafe will be open for the summer, however, we must take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Steve Carter for turning up most Saturdays to provide the pop up cafe. I am sure that you will all agree that it is a really sociable part of our event to be able to talk to fellow runners over a hot drink and a piece of cake, once the running is done.

This week 101 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 11 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part.
