A big shout out for the amazing Volunteers

Temple Newsam parkrun Number 254 6th January 2018

This week was all about the volunteers and we had an abundance of them due to the Crossgates Harriers helping out. This enabled us to have a load of volunteering pacers ranging from 20mins to 40mins plus a few run buddies. So a huge thank you goes out to the volunteers for giving up their usual parkrun to help others to run theirs. If everyone volunteered just 3 times a year we would have a full roster each week enabling us to have a smooth running of parkrun and also the satisfaction of volunteering is amazing. So please check the future roster each week and if you can help put your name forward at templenewsamhelpers@parkrun.com. It’s a great team at Temple Newsam parkrun who will help you out if you’ve not done it before. Plus volunteer 25 times and you get a lovely purple parkrun volunteer tee shirt.

This weeks amazing volunteers who made this event happen were :Paul ADAMSON, Chris ADAMSON, Ronnie BRAY, Joe BUTLER, Matty CAMPBELL, Alison CARSON, Bradley CLARKE, Louise CLARKE, Richard COOPER, Sue CRABTREE, Andy DARBY, Loz DARBY, Andrew ELLIS, Helen FENTON, Stuart GALL, Stacey GOODYEAR, Rob HARBOURNE, Suzanne HARBOURNE, Kyle HARBOURNE, Kimberly HARVEY, Leigh HARVEY, Daniel HORN, Graham HOY, Daniel JOHNSON, Mya KHAN, Gillian LAMBERT, Shaun LOFTUS, Claire MALTAS, Ian MAUDSLEY, Chris MEADLEY, David MELLOR, Lynn PARSONS, John ROBSON, Lucy RUSSELL, Jonathan RUSSELL, Anna SHARROTT, John Paul STUTTARD, Andrew WARRENDER, Richard WHITEHOUSE, Sarah WHITEHOUSE, Angela WILD, Adele WILSON, Paul WRAY

Pacers

So on with the results. The pacers must have helped you parkrunners out as 19 of you smashed your PB’s Stefan Jensen, James Drury, Paul Hudson, Warren Dennison, Melissa Kelly, Neil Kennedy, Kate Holden, Dom Thomas, Noah Burton, Lucy Andrews, Pete Andrews, Maurice Swinburn, Alice Swinburn, Rose Butterfield, Oliver Bowden, Sarah Dempsey, Jonathan Dempsey, Sajid Ali and Janet Mujtaba. Well done all. Same again next week?

We had 36 first timers this week and 14 of them were new to parkrun altogether so I hope you enjoyed it and you’ll be back next week for more parkrun fun? A personal mention to Peter Norton who stayed just in front of me to get a sub 25 run. He was visiting from York with his wife for the first time and seemed to be enjoying the flatness of Temple Newsam parkrun compared to York... honestly

Terry Midgley was first over the line in a time of 18:27 which was his 50th first place at TN so well done T and Jenny Garden was the first female over the line in 21:40.

There were a few milestones this week so welcome to the 50 club Grenville Jensen and Beverley Firth. Bev was also the 3rd female over the finish line so did it in style. Joining the 10 club was Luke Thomas so well done young man.

A full list of results can be found on the Temple Newsam parkrun Results Page.

Well done all and hope to see you again at Temple Newsam parkrun

Leigh Harvey ( your 25 min Pacer ) and the rest of the TN team.

 

Bumper turnout for New Year’s parkrun

Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 253
1st January 2018

This week a huge 424 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 114 were first timers. Over half took advantage of the later start time to put in a double shift, running earlier parkruns at various other local venues. Some even ran between them too. All very impressive! Whether you stick to your resolutions or not, we hope to see many of you again throughout the year.

42 people recorded new Personal Bests and representatives of 61 different clubs took part (I know any report writer worth their salt would actually check whether these are records in themselves!).

The event was made possible by 24 selfless volunteers:

David MELLOR • Rhianna Kate ROSE • Ronnie BRAY • Ronnie Sam BRAY • Helen FENTON • Louise TURNER • Stuart GALL • Judy LANKESTER • Gillian LAMBERT • Joanne LOFTUS • Shaun LOFTUS • Kate CRONSHAW • Bradley CLARKE • Richard COOPER • Clary ELLIOTT • Neil TESSYMAN • Emie DARBY • Clare COOPER • Loz DARBY • Pete ANDREWS • Claire KENNY • Daniel HORN • Kyle HARBOURNE • Georgie COOPER

Thanks to all volunteers for sacrificing your lie-ins to help this special parkrun go ahead.

Ciaran Forde finished first, seemingly still fresh after finishing first at Woodhouse Moor earlier in the morning. Impressive stuff!

Phil Hutchinson, Emma Harrop, Jennifer Pickett, Lucy Andrews and Pete Andrews all clocked up their 50th and Lindsey Gibson her 100th. Well done everyone.

Full results and a complete event history can be found on the Temple Newsam parkrun Results Page.

Happy New Year everyone!

Walking, jogging and running in the air

It was a very colourful festive themed takeover by Kippax Harriers this week. Amongst the 177 participants we were honoured to have Elves, Santas and Snowmen all taking time out from their busy schedules to join us.

We returned to a muddy Route A with a locked gate for runners to contend with. This one-off steeple chase element probably accounts for just 9 PBs this week. Kate Winstanley ran under 27 minutes for the first time. Neil Pimblott ran his 3rd PB on the bounce. Helen Evans hit the 25 minute mark on her 10th run. Mark Raffaelli, Becca Hattrell and Harry Trapps clocked up their 50th runs. Judy Lankester and Fiona Robins ran their 100th. Well done everyone!

The event was made possible by 33 volunteers: Linda DURKIN • Paul DURKIN • Ronnie BRAY • Sue LAKIN • Terry MIDGLEY • John Anthony MESSENGER • Ian STOREY • Helen COWLEY • Judy LANKESTER • Gillian LAMBERT • Les KITCHING • Andrew BURNS • Craig WORLEY • Grace BURNS • Melanie BLACK • Clare COPLEY • Sandra SEED • Rowan VERITY • Lindsay GEORGOPOULOS • Lisa VERITY • Eleanor HUNTER • Helen LILLYWHITE • Sharon BUTTERFIELD • Alan DAVY • Colm O'HARA • Cheryl STANTON • Mark GEORGE • Daniel HORN • Kyle HARBOURNE • Graham HOY • Helen FIRTH • Carolyn DAVY • Danny MANN

Thanks to Kippax for hosting a great event and providing the post-run treats. Some pictures from today's event can be found on the Kippax Harriers website here. Thanks to Mark George for those.

We are on next Saturday and you can also join us on New Year's Day at 10.30am. A full list of Xmas and New Year's Day parkruns can be found here.

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year from all at Team TN.

250 up for Temple Newsam

Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 250
16th December 2017

This week 125 people ran, jogged and walked the course in very chilly temperatures helping to mark our 250th parkrun at TN (do we each get a t-shirt?!). Of these hardy souls we had 13 first timers this week. The weather meant another outing on Route B which was very reminiscent (for me at least) of wintery school cross-country runs around the playing field. Clearly the flatter off-road route suits some people with 15 new Personal Bests this week: just don't get used to it!

Angela Precious and Chris Adamson ran their 50th runs this week. Well done both!

The event was made possible by 20 volunteers:

Ronnie BRAY • Matthew HICK • Scott LEACH • Moira LENAGHAN • Gillian LAMBERT • Katelyn LONGFELLOW • Olivia HICK • Stephen MILNER • Tillie CLARK • Olivia HARVEY • Andy DARBY • Richard JOHNSON • Sharon BUTTERFIELD • Loz DARBY • Linda HSIAO HICK • Suzanne HARBOURNE • Daniel HORN • Kyle HARBOURNE • Lucy RUSSELL • Jonathan RUSSELL

Once again we were struggling for volunteers and had to rely on regular names to step in. A number of helpers also turned up early in the freezing cold to mark out the course - including Terry Midgely and Ian Maudsley who also still managed to finish first and second respectively. A massive thanks to everyone who helped out. If you are looking for some New Year's resolutions you could consider a few volunteering stints to help us out next year.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Temple Newsam parkrun Results Page.

If you want your festive parkrun fix you will have to look elsewhere on Xmas Day but we are running on New Year's Day.

There were some great pictures taken this week by Scott Leach - thanks Scott.

Hopefully we will see you all again for a full-on festive fun run hosted by Kippax Harriers tomorrow- wearing of Xmas themed gear is positively encouraged.
