Wimbledon Common parkrun report: event 427 February 21 2015

 

Second to none

 

If anyone has managed to personify Wimbledon Common parkrun when the going is squelchy, it's Alex Berry. Running at our parkrun for the first time, Alex took a dive in the mud, sprung back on his feet, and still finished in 18:50, just four seconds behind the first-placed man. At the finish his previously pristine yellow shirt, and most of his kit, was liberally covered in mud, but he was beaming from ear to ear as he emerged from the funnel. Clearly this was a man who'd enjoyed his run on the Common! 427 CS(1)

Mud, what mud?

 

This week's top three speedy heroes and heroines are: James Butler (VM35-39) 18:46, Alex Berry (SM 25-29) Ful-On Tri 18:50, Adam Harwood (SM30-34) Hercules Wimbledon AC 19:06, Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54) 21:54, Amelia Ashton-Jones (VW35-39) 22:35, Isabella Busa (JW15-17) Kingston AC and Polytechnic Harriers 22:50

In the percentage game this week first lady home Lucy Woolhouse almost nudged 80 with a rating of 79.53, Dieter Schlegel achieved 77.21 and eighth-placed man Richard Evans 73.74.

Amazingly there were 15 PBs so well done all of you, especially two more-seasoned parkrunners: Alison Good, with a time of 25:48 after 48 runs and Chris Sinfield, 28:16 after 117 runs. All Chris's parkruns have been at Wimbledon Common - another man who doesn't mind the mud. Congratulations to landmark achievers Hugh Lenon on completing 100 parkruns and David Hall on reaching 150.

 

Brighter forecasts coming

 

As Charles mentioned from the bench, we've some new scribes joining our small but enthusiastic report-writing team. Hopefully, as one of my fellow scribblers sagely suggested, this should give us more time to flex our creativity. I shall endeavour to exercise my originality, as well as my legs and lungs, and write about something other than the weather. In the meantime, it wasn't half muddy again! I started parkrun, and running of any kind, in February 2008 and looking back over the first five years or so, I swear it never rained on a Saturday morning. Then it seemed to rain every time we assembled at the bench. Now the norm appears to be a good downpour on Friday so we have a dry run with plenty of mud underfoot come Saturday. Volunteering at the funnel, watching all the runners finish, I've noticed a definite correlation between how muddy and wet it is, and how many happy faces there are. Maybe the wet conditions take away the pressure of trying to achieve a good time, or perhaps we just like it that way! Anyway, the crocuses are poking their heads above the ground so there may be faster, dryer running ahead. parkrun 427 003

Happy feet

MUDDY, SHOELESS, WORLD RECORD, GOAT, St. VALENTINE'S DAY and the DEFRIBRILLATOR

After a couple of weeks of relatively dry conditions the mud was back for this Valentine’s Day parkrun.  As a result there were very few PBs for those that have run more than occasionally, but congratulations to Millie Good, James Chappell and (mother and son?) Carol and Robbie Searle who all managed PBs and have run at Wimbledon Common at least 25 times.

I presume conditions were better in the North East as an eight-year-old girl from Stockton-on-Tees ran Middlesbrough’s Stewart Park’s parkrun in just 20 minutes and 30 seconds, this is thought to be a world record for her age.  Gabrielle Hall’s time beats that set by a girl in Holland by 12 seconds.  Unfortunately her time does not count as an “official” world record as the course has not been accurately measured.  Gabrielle, who thinks she could have gone even faster, said, “I’m proud and very happy.  My dream is to be an Olympic runner.”

There seemed to be quite a race to be the next member of the “100 Club” Charlie Hellings joining only 7 seconds before Sharnie Clifford. Both are members of parkrun families, Charlie’s parents, Geraldine and James have run 195 and 138 times respectively.  Sharnie is that latest of the Clifford clan to reach this marvellous milestone, with Brianna (101 runs), Cullen (102), Rob (104) and Fionn (also on 104).  There should be a large parcel arriving at Clifford Towers sometime in the early summer with 5 black T-shirts.

Liam O’Hare, one of our regular volunteers managed his 50th parkrun, finishing the run wearing only one shoe and carrying the other.  Not sure where on the course the mud got the better of his right shoe, but he carried on and finished in a very respectable 21:28, is this a record for a one trainer finish?

According to the volunteer roster this week’s tail runner was Kevin Dendy, but it really should have read the Dendy/Peever family, as Kevin walked the course with Patricia while pushing their son, Jasper, round in his buggy.  Sadly two days after Saturdays run (walk in their case) they moved down to Cheltenham.  I presume they realised it would be their last Wimbledon parkrun for quite some time so they took it slowly, to enjoy the Common air, and managed to complete the course in just over an hour.  I think everyone at Wimbledon wishes them all the very best of luck in their new home and with the arrival of number two in the near future.

As many of you know we are in the process of applying for a grant from the British heart Foundation towards the cost of a defibrillator which would be accessible both for Wimbledon Common parkrun and the local community using the Common. As part of the application we need to have a nominated advisor to participate in the application process.

The nominated advisor should be someone who can oversee the management and maintenance of the defibrillator and be on hand to answer any questions. It is stressed that the nominate advisor doesn't need to undertake personally all of the responsibilities listed below and some or all would be delegated. The responsibilities of the nominated advisor are:

1. Ensure that the local NHS ambulance service is aware that there is a defibrillator in this location and that it is registered on their system.

2. Make sure that there is an effective process with the ambulance service for activating the defibrillator if it is needed in an emergency.

3. Advise on the purchase of other equipment such as cabinets and replacement batteries and pads relating to the defibrillator.

4. Be confident that the appropriate numbers of individuals have received training or defibrillator familiarisation.

5. Ensure the defibrillator is regularly checked and appropriately maintained according to the manufacturer's guidance.

6. Record and monitor use of the defibrillator and provide feedback to the people involved in the rescue and the local NHS ambulance service.

7. Be responsible for making sure that the memory card in the defibrillator is analysed each time it is used, either by the local NHS ambulance service or other appropriate organisations.

8. Ensure resuscitation attempts, training and maintenance of the defibrillator are properly documented.

9. Ensure that a debriefing and support are available to anyone involved in a resuscitation attempt and that they know it is available and how to access it.

10. Have access to medical advice, should it be required.

11. Ensure that it's clear who is responsible for which elements of use and maintenance of the defibrillator and that those individuals understand their roles.

If you would like to assist or learn more please get in touch with the event director, Charles Lawrie by email wimbledonoffice@parkrun.com or on Saturdays at parkrun. Charles would also like to get in touch with the gentleman with whom he spoke last year about acquiring a defibrillator.

This week sees us enter a New (Chinese) Year, leaving behind us the year of the Horse to be replaced by the year of the Goat.  Wishing you all a very “Gung How Fat Choy!”

Wimbledon Common park run, event number 425, 7 February 2015

 

The ice rink melteth, Harwood's good, Woolhouse wins and Jayne abstains

 

“Icy wind begone, this is not your domain

In the sky a bird was heard to cry

Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds

Belied the deathly silence that lay all around”

 

Well, spring hasn’t exactly sprung, but your correspondent could swear the ice that almost took his legs away by King’s Mere at the northern extreme of our course on the first lap had melted to muddy puddle by the time he struggled round on the second and last circuit. Nevertheless, a lack of sustained rain made the course somewhat less treacherous than in the past couple of months, which was reflected in 46 personal bests and, anecdotally, a goodly number of seasonal highs too.

425 GG (241)
Adam Harwood (SM30-34, pictured) of Hercules Wimbledon AC was first over the line in 18:34 – this was Adam’s first snaffling of that honour in 71 appearances. Nick McKay (VM35-39) of Wimbledon Windmilers was next in 18:52 and the unattached Gavin Doig (SM25-29) was third in 19:02 – Gavin’s been first to finish once before.

In what looks to be a very competitive men’s points competition this year, our old friend and former event director Ian Higgins (Thames Hare & Hounds) sits atop the woodpile with 1,753 of our handcrafted, finely minted olde Englishe points. Peter Metcalf (Wimbledon Windmilers) has 1,731; and fresh from cycling the seven seas, Richard Evans (Hercules Wimbledon AC) has 1,727.

425 GG (272)
As for the women, the unattached Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54, pictured) was first (26th overall) in 21:16 – her 24th premium position in 191 appearances. Isabella Busa (JW15-17) of Kingston AC and Polytechnic Harriers was the next lady over the line (44th overall) in 22:27. And Sarah Goodwin (VW35-39) of Wimbledon Windmilers, was third (63rd overall) in 23:16.

Lucy also tops the annual points compy, with 1,792 points so far. Sarah is second on 1,765. And Kylie Corso (unattached) has 1,673 pts.

And guess what... Lucy Woolhouse topped the age gradings with 81.90%, from Liam O’Hare (VM65-69), with 79.13% for the time 21:24 (27th overall), and James Wallace (VM55-59), with 76.70% for the time 20:23 (15th overall).

To some notable milestones, achieved and to come. Sue Rothwell, Geraldine Hellings and Hugh Woolhouse are all six parkruns away from the magic 200 mark. Geraldine, incidentally, ran a fantastic 1:42:28 (chip time 1:40:52) the next day in the Wokingham Half Marathon, a 74 per cent age-graded time, which put her seventh in her age category – that after a 73 per cent age-graded time here at the common. While I’m on the subject, there were half marathon PBs in the same event for Charles Hampden-Smith, Charles Lawrie and Sophie Toomey. Well done to all of you.

Edward Nelson, Steve Elson and Paul Busa, all ran their 100th parkruns on Saturday. Great achievement. Charlie Hellings, Hugh Lenon and Sharnie Clifford are all poised on 99. The aforementioned Liam O’Hare completed his 49th. Well done and, er, ‘hey’, to Chloe Hay (JW15-17) who ran her tenth parkrun on Saturday and qualifies for a white t-shirt of pride.

Most of this week’s PBs were set by those with a handful of runs at the common under their belts, which isn’t to say they’re no good of course. A special mention, again, to the breathtaking Christopher Cull (JM10), who took his PB here down to 25:12 from 25:43, set two weeks ago, which in its turn was his first-ever time under 26 minutes – this was his 44th parkrun. Watch this space! Saxon Sherwin must have found some great Angles to run this week, dipping under 22 minutes for the first time for 21:48. And Barnaby Cauwood set his second PB of the year, with 28:16; his first run in March last year was 37:23, so that’s some improvement. It can be done, people.

May I say in passing thanks to the estimable Jayne Pooley, who has written a number of these reports in the past year or so, but is now retiring to write her first novel: boy meets girl, girl meets boy, girl beats boy over 5k, romance ends in recrimination. Seriously, Jayne now finds it hard to make the time to put fingers to word processor. We’ll miss your entertaining entries, Jayne, and thanks again. Anyone else who’d like to get involved should speak to event director Charles Lawrie.

This week there were 306 runners, of whom 39 were first-timers and 46 recorded new PBs. Representatives of 17 different athletics clubs took part.

Wimbledon Common parkrun started on 6 January 2007, and since then 11,823 different runners, including participants from 502 athletics clubs, have completed 85,456 runs covering a total distance of 427,280 km, and there have been 15,278 new PBSs.

The women's record is held by Justina Heslop, who ran in a time of 16:33 on 17 March 2012, event number 271. The men's record is held by Chris Parr, who ran in a time of 15:04 on 23 April 2011, event number 224.

The age grade course record is held by Jane Davies, who recorded 92.99% for the time 21:24 on 29 January 2011, event number 212.

Our True Colours

Ok, now I understand that this is not ground breaking stuff – it’s our parkrun report after all, not “A Brief History of Time” by Stephan Hawking.  However, have you ever noticed how colour crops up in our use of everyday language?  It is constant in our use of expressions, metaphors, colourful phrases and even our colour superstitions are endless and unavoidable.  So, welcome once more to my hopefully colourful report, after all, running is never black and white.

The first colour of Saturday was white as snow flurries daintily dusted Wimbledon Common, unfortunately Charles Lawrie had not come over all Banksy on us with his red spray paint so there were no signs of a massacre in the snow, just good old, fiendish to spot flour. Conditions were obvs, trail shoes or spikes de riguer.

The icy blast may have reduced our numbers, only 224 hardy folk, but there were certainly enough vocal cords available to give Pete Mulholland a hearty cheer as he was welcomed into the Wimbledon parkrun Hall of Fame.  Personally I thought P.M. was pretty famous in these parts before this new and much deserved honour was bestowed upon him, but what do I know? He graciously received the plaudits before casually asking “Where’s the red carpet then?”  That’s not too bad Pete, often your one liners are far more technicolour than that!

 

424 SW (11)

Pete Mulholland Joins The Hall Of Fame

As I followed the runners to the start I noted a myriad of other colours, red noses, pink cheeks and blue legs to name but a few.  Of course the running clobber is rather bright these days too, just check out any new trail shoes to validate this.  My husband reminded me this week that when he played rugby at school, they were always told on match days that they could wear any colour rugger boots they liked as long as they were black, oh how times have changed.

424 SW (179)

1st Man Home Gavin Doig

So to those all important race stats:  Our race winner was Gavin Doig, unattached, in 19.31 and he wore predominantly orange.  This colour denotes energy, liveliness and motivation among other things, seems appropriate Gavin.  Tom Levi came 2nd in a PB time of 19.36, he donned blue denoting “Cool running.”  Our 3rd and 4th places went to two very promising youngsters.  Luke Knight 3rd in 19.41 with an age grading of 73.67% followed closely by Sam Barker in 19.49, age grade 73.17%.  These guys are in the JM11-14 age category so I would be tempted to say “Watch this space” – F.Y.I – Luke orange and Sam red.

 

 

424 SW (199)

1st Lady Lisa Thomas

Our red hot ladies this week were Lisa Thomas, the 1st lady in 20.32, followed by fellow Hercules Gina Galbraith in 20.42.  Both sported yellow, think Aussie sport success and Brazilian football – sometimes!  Windmiler Julia Donovan finished 3rd in 20.51 and wore red, white and black, this colour combination denotes utter splendidness, enough said.

Men's placings: Gavin Doig was first over the line in 19:31 - first time in 53 appearances, Tom Levi was in second place in a time of 19:36 and Luke Knight was third in 19:41.

Current standing in the Men's annual points competition: Ian Higgins leads the way on 1453 points, closely followed by Peter Metcalf with 1446 points, with Richard Evans in third place with 1434 points.

Women's placings: Lisa Thomas was first (13th overall) over the line in 20:32 - 34th time in 177 appearances, Gina Galbraith was second (14th overall) in 20:42 - has been first to finish on 7 previous occasions and Julia Donovan was third (15th overall) in a time of 20:51 - has been first to finish on 3 previous occasions.

Current standing in the Women's annual points competition: Lisa Thomas on 1499 points leads the way with Lucy Woolhouse only 7 points behind with  1492 points and Sarah Goodwin in third place on 1467 points.

The following runners recorded the best Age Grade scores: Lisa Thomas (VW50-54) was graded 80.68% for the time 20:32 (13th overall). Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54) was graded 79.89% for the time 21:48 (26th overall). Simon Bodle (VM50-54) was graded 74.21% for the time 20:02 (6th overall).

This week there were 224 runners, of whom 30 were first timers and 17 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different athletics clubs took part.

Wimbledon Common parkrun started on 6th January 2007, and since then 11,784 different runners, including participants from 502 athletics clubs, have completed 85,150 runs covering a total distance of 425,750 km, and there have been 15,232 new Personal Bests.

The women's record is held by Justina Heslop who ran in a time of 00:16:33 on 2012-03-17 (event number 271). The men's record is held by Chris Parr who ran in a time of 00:15:04 on 2011-04-23 (event number 224).

Jayne explains to Richard that she just wants a new kitchen for Christmas!

 

Alas all good things must come to an end and we bid a fond farewell to fellow scribe Jayne Pooley’s writing skills (NOT JAYNE, JUST HER PEN.)  Jayne is standing down due to the pressure of work commitments.  We will greatly miss her enthusiastic reporting on all things muddy, the Great British Bake Off (my personal favourite), her compassionate words for all those who become trapped under their duvets on Saturday mornings and so much more.  Thanks a million for all your hard work last year Jayne.  Who else could have cracked the mind trap known as Flickr, a tougher conundrum than the Enigma code.  Come back and write any time you like in the future, you will always be most welcome.

Oh, one final colour note to ponder, the winter blues busting Six Nations kicks off at the weekend so choose wisely, white,  Scottish blue, French blue, green, red or azure and get cheering!

 

 

 

Wimbledon Common parkrun weekly report – Event 423 – 24 January 2015

Q: What’s brown and sticky?

A: The conventional answer is, of course, a stick.

However, as I trudged/skidded/swam through the mud on the Common this week and applied a liberal layer of the brown stuff to my person, I considered that the answer could easily be ‘a Wimbledon Common parkrunner’. The overall stickiness was further compounded by perennial miscreant, Robert Beeby, who decided that the free sample of high-protein yoghurt that he had been given after the run would be improved by flicking it at people. A number of female parkrun regulars were hit – we were not amused.

 

Today’s mudfest was particularly special for Sophie Toomey, who ran her 150th (despite being completely oblivious of the fact that this was a milestone run until race director Charles announced it to the world in his usual pre-race banter).  And this wasn’t the only surprise announcement: Tessa Kelly was pleasantly surprised to be awarded the Sweatshop prize – congratulations Tessa and have fun choosing your new pair of running shoes. New shoes are always great, but free shoes are even better!

423 LR (12)

Diminutive Windmiler Bronwyn Mayo also celebrated her 50th run. Unfortunately for us, this will be Bronwyn’s last parkrun on Wimbledon Common (at least for a while) as she is moving to Woking. Our loss is Woking parkrun’s gain – we wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you at future Windmiler events.

 

In the men's placings, Peter J Collins (VM40-44) of Hercules Wimbledon AC, was first over the line in 18:57. This is Peter’s second win in 152 appearances. Two unattached runners took the other spots on the virtual podium: David Nelson (SM30-34) was second in 19:00 and Arran Mornin (SM20-24) third in 19:12.

Current standing in the Men's annual points competition:

  • Peter Metcalf (Wimbledon Windmilers) 1157 pts.
  • Ian Higgins (Thames Hare & Hounds) 1153 pts.
  • Sebastian Vons (Wimbledon Windmilers) 1150 pts.

 

Annie Tosh triumphed in the women’s race without even running, after betting husband Phil that Ruth Wallace (SW30-34) of Thames Hare & Hounds, would be first over the line. I forget who Phil had picked for the men’s race, but I believe his chosen runner didn’t even show up on the day. There seemed to be some disagreement among the Toshes over what the prize would actually entail, although Annie also has a reputation for predicting winners when it comes to the gee gees, so Phil really should know better.

 

Back to the real event, Ruth was indeed first woman to cross the muddy congealed flour mess that counts as the finish line (15th overall) in 20:08. This is Ruth’s 24th win in 31 appearances, so you could say the odds were stacked in Annie’s favour this time. Lisa Thomas (VW45-49) of Hercules Wimbledon AC has been first to finish 33 times, but had to settle for second (25th overall) on this occasion, with a time of 20:48. Another regular to the top spot, having been first to finish on 23 previous occasions, Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54; unattached) was third (40th overall) over the line in 21:35.

Current standing in the Women's annual points competition:

  • Lisa Thomas (Hercules Wimbledon AC) 1199 pts.
  • Lucy Woolhouse (Unattached) 1195 pts.
  • Sarah Goodwin (Wimbledon Windmilers) 1175 pts.

 

423 LR (183)

Today's performance also gave Lucy the best age grade score, with an impressive 80.69%. Other notable age grade scores were recorded by Lisa Thomas (79.65%) and Simon Bodle (VM50-54) who was graded 74.71% for the time 19:54 (9th overall).
