Roll up roll up for the greatest show on earth!!! oh yes its parkrun day well no it’s not really it’s the night of parkrun day but never the less it is still Saturday which means it is not Monday tomorrow which means no work yayayay (apologies to the people who do have to work Sundays I feel your pain)

Today was and still is the 13th of October so I was wondering at around 9.00am this morning why oh why was there a huge yellow/orange thing beating down onto Valentines park which of course was lovely but wow it was warm not what I expect for October. The only thing that worries me is when it is nice weather for so long there is always a bite in the tail and I really really really do not like the cold brrrrrrrrrrr and then wet and cold I am shivering just typing it…

As said above it was warm but 244 wonderful people arrived today and I hope had a great walk jog run around Valentines park all in aid of doing a parkrun, we had a wonderful 9 brand new contestants arrive today for the first go at parkrun well done all of you. This was topped up by 11 first time Tourists!! Thank you all for coming we do hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Added to that 25 people broke their personal best barrier and got their legs to go faster than ever before!! Amazing super effort by everyone.

11 great Tourists came for their first run at Valentines today I am certain it was enjoyed by all. Brian Adams home parkrun is St Andrews in Scotland so was quite a trip  down south, Jo Michael seemed to make the trip the other way from plymbridge park run in Plymouth so a northern route, Katie Haines and Gary Evans came to visit from Hertfordshire home run is normally Tring.  With the other wonderful tourists coming from more local runs like Wanstead flats , Barking. Mile end. Thanks you all for coming and it goes without saying I am sure there were other tourists today but have ran at Valentines before so thank you also for making the effort to revisit.

Christmas 2018 and New Year’s Day 2019

If you fancy a bit of a challenge to start the New Year with, why not give the traditional Wanstead Flats and Valentines double parkrun a go?

Our friends at Wanstead Flats will be holding an additional event at 9 o'clock on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, and there will also be an additional event later on at Valentines, at 10 o'clock. Both events will count as an official parkrun, bringing you 2 closer to your next milestone T-shirt! If you fancy an extra challenge (and know the way!), you could even run between the two events as well!

We can't guarantee that the car parks within Valentines Park will be open on New Year's Day, so please factor that into your planning if you'll be driving.

Here's how the whole festive period is shaping up locally:

Saturday, December 22, 2018
Valentines parkrun is going ahead as usual, at 9 o'clock.

Christmas Day (Tuesday, December 25)
Barking parkrun (just down the road from us) will be holding an additional event at 9 o'clock. There will not be an event at Valentines.

Saturday, December 29
A normal day for us at Valentines, with the run starting at 9 o'clock

New Year's Day (Tuesday, January 1, 2019)
Wanstead Flats parkrun, starting at 9 o'clock.
Valentines parkrun, starting at 10 o'clock.

Saturday, January 5
Again, business as usual for us at Valentines, with the run starting at 9 o'clock.

 

A special announcement!

This Saturday (6th October) is going to be a special occasion, as we'll be celebrating "International parkrun Day" with a visit from one of our sponsors. Here's their announcement:

We've got a special event happening at our @ilfordparkrun this Saturday. Vitality UK will be at Valentines parkrun handing goodies to celebrate our 14th birthday & the launch of their new Park Life advert, so make sure you head down so you don't miss out!

VALENTINES PARKRUN #401

Image and video hosting by TinyPic" alt="" />

Well hello and welcome to another Valentines parkrun run report coming to you semi live from the bottom of the Fish pond lake in the wonderful park that is named Valentines.
To use an old catchphrase “Didn’t they do well” as it seems 39 people achieved the magical PB badge of honour, plus an amazing 15 people turned up today for the first ever parkrun wohoo !!!!!
Lots of tourist and visitors .let’s be honest a great day all round.

Although it was balmy 8 centigrade at 9am for the start seems no one really minded as not many woolly hats yet!! It’s coming through its really coming brrrrrrrrr..
This week 270 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 30 were first timers and 39 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.
A wonderful 19 parkrun volunteers offered there services today which is of course wonderful to see. I do hope we all said at least one thank you and a huge smile :)

3 Andy PHELPS 19:04 VM55-59 81.29 % M Headington RRC First Timer!

 

Adam first time at Valentines with a great time under 17 minutes I suppose if you’re going to come and have a go why not run around in under 17 minutes and look at the scenery afterward :) . Simon comes home in a great sub 19 minutes with Andy coming in third again another first timer at Valentines..

 

 

TOP 3 LADIES

43 Rabia PIPERDY-ALLOO 23:54 VW40-44 64.37 % F 1 PB stays at 00:22:14

66 Isabelle WOKOMA 25:20 JW15-17 60.39 % F 3 PB stays at 00:25:01

 

Is always great to see new names pop up in the top 3 and today was no exception, Rabia taking first place for the ladies I think looking at her stats this is Rabia first time the top female at Valentines superb effort. Clara one of our junior runners comes home 2nd only 16 seconds outside her PB. Isabelle another junior runner comes home 3rd she hit a new PB last week with 25:01 now just outside that but a third place is a welcome addition too I hope. Amazing effort from all three.

15 brave souls took on parkrun for the first time and have to honest here it was a bit chilly so may have been very very very easy to slip back under the duvet (I almost did but the cat leapt on me!!!!!)

Great to see 3 juniors having a first time go only downside to that is those young people get quicker and quicker each week meaning more people who will pass me with ease.

39 !!!! 39 !!! 39!!!! Of you all beat your PB wow wow and wow… if I wasn’t running myself I would have thought that someone had changed the course and made it downhill all the way!! What a terrific effort by all..

What is nice to see is the number of runner on their 2nd outing breaking their personal best from the original effort (it’s great when you know what way to go isn’t it J

As always we like to pick a couple of people out to see their name in lights well at least written in the run report as a special mention.

Alison Sale 25.38 Smashing another 20 seconds from her own PB, now sometimes I do see Alison running at parkrun this week I did not she was gone into the distance and I thought I was doing quite well.. sighhh J well done Alison great stuff.

Ronnie Waller 38.03 Knocking 33 seconds from a previous PB set back in early August what a great effort can I have some of whatever you have been eating drinking please as it seems to be working.. Terrific effort.

Naomi Lawrence 29.00 Last three times at Valentines a PB each and every time showing amazing form and great effort but next time just shuffle your feet 10 millimetres forward at start and you will break into the 28 minute bracket for sure.

Abhijit Jadhav 24.56 What an amazing effort last PB set back in August 2017 now just over 1 year on breaks into the 24 minute bracket at Valentines wohoop whoop whoop…

(of course I jest I will be wrapped up like a tortoise getting ready for hibernation).

Valentines parkrun # 399 – 15/09/2018

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic" alt="" />

 

 

Hi and welcome to the latest Valentines run report brought to you from the grounds of Valentines park Ilford Essex.

With it being the middle of September we cannot complain at all about the weather at all as yesterday was rather nice yet again.

This week 276 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 21 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

So as you read this report how did you do? Is your name up in lights or was it just one of those days, need not fret there is always next week and let’s be honest who wants to set a PB at event number 399!! Event number 400 is much better.

Onto the report far too much rambling from me going on.
