Torbay Velopark parkrun #11 Run Report by James White visiting from Winchester

I am one of a growing number of parkrun tourists who seek to visit as many parkruns as possible all over the country.  I am based in Winchester but a family holiday in Brixham gave me an excellent opportunity to visit Torbay, one of the newest additions to the increasing number of Devon parkruns.

I arrived early and met a number of the volunteers who were extremely helpful and really enthusiastic about parkrun, something that is lovely to see in such a new community.  I also met some other tourists, one from Exeter Riverside and one from Cwmbran, both of whom were looking forward to trying Torbay for the first time.  In addition there were also tourists from Farnham, Leeds and Ipswich!

The first timers' briefings and run brief were both expertly delivered and we lined up on the start line raring to go, and with the briefest of countdowns we were off.

The first thing that struck me is how quick the first section is, with wide flat tarmac and sweeping curves it made for a swift start and I soon slipped into racing driver mode...looking for the quickest way into and out of the corners, drafting behind people on the windy sections, and overtaking and being overtaken on long straights.  It was a lot of fun and I recorded my fastest first 2 miles for some time!

We were directed off of the track and, as per the run brief, were guided onto the playing fields that accompany the sports centre.  It was here that it got a bit tricky for my road shows and I found myself slipping and sliding a little. The third mile was definitely my slowest but was pleased with my finish and my time, only a couple of seconds off of a 2017 best.

I was struck by how family orientated the run was and was pleased to see so many juniors running, and running so fast!

I really enjoyed my morning and would love to visit again in the future if I am ever down this way!

The morning was exceptionally well organised by the excellent team of volunteers.  This weeks hi-viz volunteer heroes were:

Alison FORD, Angus GLASS, Bridget WILLIAMS, Chad NELSON, Craig MCGUIRE, Eileen SEVERN, Fleur RICKLIN, Gary BRENTON, Huseyin KEMAL, Ian HAYWARD, Jill LIARDET, Joanne LEY, Julia GLASS, Kerry BELL, Martha NEAL, Ole DODWELL, Samantha FROGGATT, Sara Jane CROZIER, Sarah ADDIS, Shaun MCKERNAN, Simon GILBOY, Stephen WILBRAHAM, Steve HOOKINS, Steve MADDOCK and Tom WRIGHT

There were 12 unknown runners.  If you have yet to register, please do so and bring your barcode along next week! www.parkrun.org.uk/register/
