22 Speed freaks ran around Valentines today faster than their legs have ever taken them before what an amazing effort by everyone considering the warm weather we have been having.

To give a few names in lights is always an imminence pleasure for me as I do hope when the person named reads it makes them feel the effort was totally worth it.

Ray Sparra EVERINGHAM 28:15.Now I do know that Ray has been really been stepping up the miles and the effort so now a brand spanking new PB is just what happens when you put the effort in.

Carol BROOME 21:32 Always near the top of the ladies and always near top of age graded results and 4 PB since May I think Carol likes the warmer weather sub 21:00 is due soon as its only getting warmer.

Dave BEARD 44.49 What a great effort by Dave last PB was back in September 2017 now he breaks into the 44 minute bracket blinking great effort let’s not forget Dave competes in the VM, 75-79 bracket!!!. Oh and BTW next run will be Daves 50th!

Hardeep KAUR 22:38 Last 3 visits to Valentines have resulted in a hat trick of PB superb effort.

Today as first time tourist-visitors we had a super entry of 13 great good looking wonderfully friendly may I even say some of the best human beings on planet Earth J ok maybe that’s a bit too far but huge thank you for coming if doing things like the Alphabet challenge enjoy the V J

Just to add I am sure there were more than 13 Tourists at Valentines but the way the parkrun website lists participants it is easier to see first time  entries  so if you did visit for a 2nd or 50th time please feel free to say Hello on our Facebook page oh and thanks so much for coming.

As a bit of fun it’s always nice to see where the first time visitors have come from or at least a top 3 on distance from Valentines, now please note this is in no way scientific or technically worked through i just take the persons normal run (the one they have done the most) and get a distance from that parkrun to Valentines. It’s only a bit of fun J

Today’s top 3 is a little different as we had 3 clear winners but they all came from the same location  so we will have a top 5 with a triple 1st place.

1, Ruth,Phoebe and Andrea Saxton.. Now these 3 lovely ladies came all the way from East London!! Now I hear you say east London isn’t that far as Ilford is considered by many to be part of East London. Sadly wrong East London J Ruth Phoebe and Andrea came from Nahoon parkrun which is located 8400 miles from Valentines in Nahoon South Africa!!!

2 Natalie Milstead  138 parkruns done and now the letter V collected at Valentines and only 536 miles from her home run in the great city of Aberdeen Scotland.

3 Christopher O`Donavan  Who made the journey from the west Chipping sodbury to be precise a distance of 145 miles. Most weeks this would have been a winner.

4. Cath Hunt 86 miles for Cath who came down the A1 from Peterborough parkrun for a visit thanks so much for making the journey.

5 Maria Blythe only just beating a few people who were all around the 20-25 mile mark  Maria came from Parshanger parkrun which is just around the 30 mile mark from Valentines. Once again thank you for coming.

Most of all thank you everyone who came to have a run,walk,jog around Valentines.

Valentines parkrun # 389 – 07/07/2018

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hello and welcome fellow parkrunners to run report #389 held at Valentines Park in the town of Ilford in the county Essex which roughly resides in the south east corner of England.
Now I only started the run report that way, just in case anyone thought we was in the middle of the Sahara Desert as wow weeeee it’s was a hot one let’s not mess around here the weather has been superb, but there are times when you think hmm just a few degrees less would be perfect especially at 9 am on a Saturday morning when running is the order of the day.
This week 218 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.
Numbers down a little on the last few weeks but still plus 200 lovely people turned up and strutted there stuff. With the numbers down slightly means the PB records where down a bit too but as you know in a dark way I kind of like that as it means a lot less work for yours truly :) Still 14 speed demons ripped the tarmac to shreds well done.

Wow it was like the first day of the school holidays it seems everyone was being a tourist today as 27 superstars came to Valentines for the first time. And what a great bunch of people they all seemed to be.
Just a few highlights I have noticed
Pauline Blake was the person today with the most parkruns at a massive 310!!! And a huge number of volunteer stats to her name as well a great parkrunner!
As some may know at times we do a little section to see who travelled the furthest to tourist for the first time at Valentines this week there is only 1 person to mention as she stomped it.

Weronika WODICZKO who normally runs at parkrun Kaliz in Poland which give or take a few shortcuts is 913 miles or 1400 Kilometres from Valentines Park. Now added to Weronika amazing stat we also had a volunteer Adrianna WODICZKO who of course I am not 100% certain may be a relation 
Oh btw when I looked up the Kaliz parkrun seems nearby there looks to be a great waterpark one to think of visiting in the future.

 

PERSONAL BESTS
Oh my gosh 36 of your speed freaks best your fastest ever time at Valentines yet again, I need to speak to our Run Directors to make sure we have not got some sections of the course that have been built like a video game with speed boost tarmac sections..Amazing effort everyone be very very proud of your efforts.

As always we like to pull a few names for the extra lights feature so please lots of extra applause for:-
Nancy PALUMBO 23.35 knocking a few more seconds off her PB and as a junior on her 10th run. 5 personal bests in 10 runs is a great effort.
Jeremy EVANS 23.16 only 6 runs at Valentines but last 3 in a row have all resulted in a brand new PB think the 22 minute bracket is soon to be entered.
Edward ELEY 7 runs at Valentines with 5 personal bests is a great effort and even better now broken into the 24 minute barrier awesome effort.
Mark ELIAS 83 parkruns all at Valentines now smashes into the 32 minute bracket what a great effort.

VOLUNTEERS
Tom BARTON, Steven BATEY, Phil BUTCHER, Marian ELIAS, Wendy EVERINGHAM, Manji GAMI, Mukhtiar Singh GILL, Stephen GILSON, Yasin GULAM, Andrew GWILLIAM, Celia HINE, Ed HOOKE, Pathrose LOUIS, Amita MORSE, Tarik QIREM, Djamal RAMOUL, Alison SALE, Adrianna WODICZKO

As always the above people deserve all the credit without these superstars we would all be wandering around the park not knowing how when why or what 
Thank you to one and all.

 
FOOTNOTE/CONCLUSION

 
Really hope everyone enjoyed their time at Valentines this week hope to see you all again next week with even more friends.
Please don’t forget to visit the Valentines café after your run for refreshments and chitter chatter of course.
I will mention here that it was noted that a few cars were sadly issued with parking tickets which is not a great thing but the Park does operate a pay to park and it is only £1.00 for 1 hour or £1.50 for 2 hours or all day for £3.50. There is of course a charge for reminder sms txt etc all can be found on the link below
Please note there is no pay by cash option at the park it is all based on the application from https://www.myringgo.co.uk/
Now with that official boring stuff done, Hope to see you all next week for more fun and frolics

All the best

Valentines parkrun # 387 – 23/06/2018 Run Report

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

Greetings fellow Valentine parkrunners, yes yes yes I know this report is late but it is here and it’s blinking excellent. (Of course I jest).

So let’s be very British and talk about the weather, Saturday even by 9am (great work Emil our RD for the day as it was a 9.00am start bang on time bravo) Well I do not know about you lot but wow I was hot hot hot and I don’t mean in a fast pace way, I was melting quicker than an ice cream stuffed inside a woolly jumper that had been left in the middle of the Sahara desert at noon!!!!I would like to say though as you can hopefully see in the pictures it was gorgeous.

This Saturday coming it looks like a lovely 19 c with some light cloud happy days :)

A great nice round number of 250 top sparkly participants arrived and took part today helped and assisted by 18 top class amazing wonderful good looking best personalities on the planet Hi Vis Legends also known as volunteers.
From these 250 heroes we had 13 (yep unlucky for some but not us) first time ever parkrun participants, added to this we had 15 really stunning in many many ways first time tourists Please find your names listed elseware in this report thanks for coming. I am sure there as always where more tourists who had come back for another visit as we are so popular at Valentines, as always though only the first timers get a name check, no real reason other than I do have a job and kids to feed and a cat to feed and more important my fingers would hurt from all the typing.

Now its complaint time !!! It was hot it was sticky it was tuff how did 47 of you wonderful people hit new personal bests!!! Oh my massive congrats, the complaint is just from me knowing I have to write up all your amazing feats of awesomeness!!!!

Valentines parkrun # 385 – 09/06/2018

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

 

Good evening/day fellow parkrun enthusiasts. Did you enjoy Saturdays run? Massive apologise for the run report being a little late but would you believe it I was held captive by 49 Squirrels who feel their contribution to the run reports is not being promoted enough!!! 57 bags of nuts and 18 hours later my family bribed my release :)

I have tried a slightly different format this week so if it looks rather messy I am sorry I will get it looking nice sooner or later.

Well onto the joys of the report.

Happy Birthday NHS 70 years and still as great as ever!!!!!!

Was great to see so many people from https://www.nelft.nhs.uk/ with Jacqui Van Rossum Executive Director - Integrated Care (London) supporting the NHS who was even kind enough to say a few words thank you

Cllr Debbie Kaur-Thiara the 54th Mayor of Redbridge who came and gave us a great speech and some kind words thank you.

Please take a look at our Facebook page  for some as always great pictures from this week’s event.

This week 259 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 29 were first timers and 44 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.
