Has Winter finally run its course at Temple Newsam parkrun?

Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 266
7th April 2018

A lovely spring morning finally greeted us on Saturday! Hopefully the endless laps of a snow-laden route B or the worry of how many layers we will need to fend off the elements are now a distant memory (although the rain did put in a cameo appearance towards the end).

Well done to Melvin Burton on his 400th parkrun. Billy Moffat also clocked up his 50th. Well done also to Sharon Butterfield on being parkrunner of the month.  Many thanks to Danny Kelly for all the pictures this week.

This week 161 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 26 volunteers:

Martin HORBURY • Ronnie BRAY • Anna MILBURN • Paul ADAMSON • Stuart GALL • Gillian LAMBERT • Shirley PARKER • Daniel KELLY • Mark CASEY • Andrew ELLIS • Tony OWEN • Katy PAGE • Andy DARBY • Melissa KELLY • Clare COOPER • Sharon BUTTERFIELD • Louie HAYES • Gary ELLERBY • Wendy HIGGINS • Rob HARBOURNE • Suzanne HARBOURNE • Daniel HORN • Kyle HARBOURNE • Georgie COOPER • David I'ANSON • Kai MCHALE

This week we had a Valentine's Day themed event hosted by Crossgates Harriers who provided volunteers, cakes and goodie bags for the runners.

In rather damp and cold conditions, 184 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 22 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

Ian Stewart ran his 50th this week and Lynn Parsons hit double figures. Well done both of you!

Simon Ratcliffe knocked over 40 seconds off his PB to cross the line at 27:39. Grenville Jensen (VM65-69) shaved a few seconds off his previous best to come in at an impressive 22:17, giving him the highest age graded performance of the week. Great performances guys!

The event was made possible 39 volunteers:

John Paul STUTTARD • Melvyn BURTON • Michael MURPHY • Ronnie BRAY • Gillian HALL • Graham WILSON • Julie SMITH • Alan SMITH • Moira LENAGHAN • Terry MIDGLEY • Richard WHITEHOUSE • Gillian LAMBERT • Bradley CLARKE • Louise CLARKE • Lynn PARSONS • James CLARKE • Julie WILSON • Angela WILD • Andrew HARGREAVES • Paul WRAY • Andy DARBY • Katherine FENTON • Richard ELLIS • Loz DARBY • Michael KERSHAW • Maxine OLBISON • Andrew HARVEY • Janine LEE • Michelle COSTELLO • Claire MALTAS • Rob HARBOURNE • Suzanne HARBOURNE • Sue CRABTREE • Daniel HORN • Sarah WHITEHOUSE • Kyle HARBOURNE • Hannah LONG • Stephen FLANAGAN • Kate HOLDEN

Massive thanks go to Crossgates Harriers for the successful takeover and to everyone who helped out. Volunteers are the real star performers at parkrun. As Andy said in his briefing, please consider a volunteering role at some point soon if you haven't recently. If everyone takes a turn we would have such healthy numbers every week. It's great fun, and you can find a role that suits you.

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

All the best

This week was a very special parkrun. Yes, we hit 5 years old and also celebrated Ronnie's 250th run. Well done Ronnie, it's been an eventful 5 years; thanks for starting everything off here and for all your hard work, time and dedication over the years to help keep the show running week in week out. It was great to see such a large turnout of faces, old and new, to say hi to Ronnie and celebrate the occasion, despite the rather testing weather conditions.

During these last 5 years we've seen 6,600 participants completing 40,779 parkruns covering a total distance of 203,895 km, and 6,868 new Personal Bests.

This week 236 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 38 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part, including a bumper turnout from Leeds and Bradford Triathlon Club, who probably felt like they'd also done a swim leg as well!

Let's not forget we also had milestone 50th runs from Graham Bowden and Claudja Coyne this week. Well done both of you!

We must give special thanks to the 26 volunteers who braved the freezing cold and rain to ensure everything ran smoothly on Route A:

Dave John WILLIAMSON • Paul DURKIN • Rhianna Kate ROSE • Ronnie BRAY • Judy LANKESTER • Gillian LAMBERT • Shaun LOFTUS • Andrew ELLIS • Emma RICHARDSON • Malcolm LAVERY • Stacey GOODYEAR • Alan WALSH • Marina DOBBS • Teresa GRANNER • Stephen MILNER • Andy DARBY • Richard ELLIS • David HUDSON • Loz DARBY • Mr Sam CUSSEN • Paula WATSON • Daniel HORN • Laura COYLE • Sarah WHITEHOUSE • Kyle HARBOURNE • Rosie WILLIAMS

There were some delightful baked goods on offer for runners by way of celebration. Can I thank the baker of the flapjacks which I particularly enjoyed!

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

See you all again next week as we start the countdown to Ronnie's 500th.......

Temple Newsam Parkrun Report 27th January

Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 257
27th January 2018

A welcome return for Route A this week, albeit in cold and partly muddy conditions. In total 178 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 25 were first timers. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

This week 24 runners recorded new Personal Bests. Young George Precious (11-14) has been a regular at Temple Newsam over the last year or so and it was great to see his persistence paying off, knocking a few precious (sorry!) seconds off his previous best to come in at 28:24. Well done George, and keep up the good work! Annette McTaggart, obviously keen to stay in the headlines after her 50th run recently, took 40 seconds off her best to come in just under the 29 minute mark. Paul Wray inched a bit closer to the magic 20 minute mark, coming in second (behind Terry Midgley) with 20:07. Just behind in 3rd place, Stefan Jensen ran his 4th PB in succession (20:13). Well done everyone, some great running there!

Many thanks to the 20 volunteers who braved the cold and damp to help out and lift our flagging spirits this week:

Ronnie BRAY • Ronnie Sam BRAY • Helen FENTON • Claire WHITWELL • Stuart GALL • Moira LENAGHAN • Gillian LAMBERT • Bradley CLARKE • Alan WALSH • Ian MAUDSLEY • Andy DARBY • Loz DARBY • Mr Sam CUSSEN • Linda HSIAO HICK • Daniel HORN • Sarah WHITEHOUSE • Kyle HARBOURNE • Amy RUSSELL • Stephen FLANAGAN • Lucy RUSSELL

Ronnie was RD and reminded everyone of our impending 5th Birthday event this Saturday. He'll also be celebrating his 250th run. Ronnie started up the parkrun here and alongside Gill Lambert and Ronnie Jnr is integral to its ongoing success. Be sure to make it down to this one! Yes, there will be cake but any further baked donations will be gratefully received. We are also looking for a few more volunteers.

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

Hope to see you all again this Saturday.
