Walsall parkrun taken over by the ARC!! – Event 318 (7 April 2018)

My running club (Aldridge Running Club) had offered to do a Walsall parkrun takeover, part of the reason being to promote their 10km, 5km and children’s races on Sunday 10th June (more details below).

untitled

An incredible 33 runners volunteered, with Anne Kelsall as Run Director.
As the time ticked closer to the run starting, the heavens opened, and this continued throughout the run, and promptly stopped at 10:10 straight after the finish.

As the 9am approached, runners and volunteers had to leave the shelters and move to the start line.
Dave Ellis and I were timekeepers today – being used to timekeeping at Perry Hall where we average 120 runners, would this be a whole different ball game with 400 runners?
untitled

By the time the first finisher came in, approximately 16 and half minutes after Anne’s whistle started the run, it’s fair to say that all volunteers and runners were absolutely soaked through by the rain. The runners started coming in thick and fast – maybe two by two as we wished that we had an ARC for shelter!!! This of course didn’t spoil the atmosphere, it never does at parkrun – the rain never matters, it keeps the runners cool and the volunteers get extra thank you and kudos from the very appreciative runners.

One of the things I really enjoy about being a timekeeper is that you get to see the runner’s senses of achievement as they cross that finish line. For some, they have pushed themselves all the way around and they have nothing left to almost cross the line, whilst for others, they come across the line smiling, waving and chatting – either way, everyone has completed a 5km early on a Saturday morning to set themselves up for the weekend nicely.

There was a special group of runners today who all probably had the biggest of all the smiles this morning. They were the runners who had been part of Jog Walsall Couch to 5K group. They have been working hard, starting from being walkers to today graduating to run their first ever official 5km. Well done to you all – each and every one of you achieved today, hopefully this is just the start of your running and parkrun journey.
untitled

There was an incredible 389 runners, it would be amazing to see some parkrunners at the Aldridge 10km / 5km race in June. It’s a very friendly, event and with the children’s races too, it’s certainly family friendly too. Some further details can be seen below and a link to enter is here.
