Wimbledon Common parkrun Event number 435 18th April 2015

 

Their Cups Runneth Over (or under 20.00 minutes)

If you want to see some quality silverware where would you think to look?  Maybe the Tower of London, Hatton Garden (not the safety deposit boxes – obvs) the London Silver Vaults or quite possibly Tiffanys.  Well why not save yourself the bus fare and go instead to check out a more local exhibition.  Just head to the Wool House in Wimbledon, it is positively “bling-tastic,” a magpie haven absolutely burgeoning with shiny silvery cups!

All joshing aside (temporary ceasefire only) I would certainly like to say a massive congratulations to Lucy and Hugh Woolhouse (pictured below) on doing the double double ton together on Saturday.  On this occasion I shall not dwell on Lucy’s excellent running, if you need proof of this just check out the stats, they speak for themselves.  Rather I should like to make more of the fact that this splendid running duo are exceedingly good eggs, always the sort to pitch up and pitch in, qualities that more parkrunners would do well to emulate so thanks a million to you both. Ok, Ok, Hugh, you surely didn’t think I would really drop the ball on this one, just for the record, Lucy recorded a PB time of 19.52 on Saturday giving her a gobsmaking age grading of 87.67%, the highest on the day.

435 GG (19)

Other wonderful milestones reached were by Elisabeth Bingham and Paul Abraham who both joined the 100 club.  Paul is running well at the moment and narrowly missed out on a PB by 2 seconds, fingers crossed for next week Paul.

Dominic Ostrowski joins the 50 club showing remarkable loyalty to Wimbledon by completing 48 of those runs here.

The quintet who join the 10-tastic club this week are: Julia Behan, Beniamino Forchini, Flossie Gough, Jessie Whichelow and Aidan Watkins.

With course conditions turning from “Slippery Banana Skin” to just “Peachy” you would expect some decent times to be recorded at the weekend and the Wimbledon crowd did not disappoint with PBs zinging around like the ball bearing in a pinball machine.  Just check out the run times of Brianna Clifford on 108 runs, Richard Mellor of HWAC on 82, Duncan Watkins on 73, Andrew Lenon on 72, Gemma Brennan on 59, Christine McNeil on 59 and James Hawker of W.W. on 57.

 

Nepotism Corner

It is always cool to see a regular runner improving, and even more impressive to see a PB recorded by someone who has run this course no fewer than 261 times, Phil Tosh (pictured below) did exactly this on Saturday by recording a PB of 24.11. Oddly enough his last PB was recorded exactly a year ago to the weekend. He also ran a half marathon over in Connemara in Ireland recently and clocked up another PB over a very challenging course.  It was noted on this occasion that he sported a rather nifty Connacht rugby shirt, a blatant (and fraudulent) attempt to garner local support but it did the trick. April is clearly a form month for Mr Tosh so keep your eyes peeled to see if he gets the trip at Aintree next year!

Wimbledon Common Parkrun Weekly Report – Event no. 434 – 11th April 2015

I am very nervous. It is my first time. What will they think? I will at least do a PB. I may on the other hand Perform Badly but no-one will be the wiser. I worry about the weather and conditions underfoot but today they are dry and not slippery. I do not have to worry so much about where I am putting my feet. I can concentrate on writing my first report. But I do not know the runners, certainly not the fast ones as I try and beat 27 minutes.

I get there early to see what’s happening, who’s there. Is there anything to report? No inspiration. I do my run. Conditions are the best they have been this year – dry and fast – but overcast. To wit, there were 81 PB’s out of 363 runners. I do not know if this is a record but it seems pretty good to me.

After the race as Jayne (ex run-report writer) and I were recovering on the strategically placed park bench just beyond the finish line, she asked if I had any anecdotes for the report. Unfortunately it was not that sort of day. The rain came on; people did not want to hang around and chat. Today it was clinical. Arrive. Run. Return home. But satisfaction for many with a PB.

The highlights:

 

Male placings:

Joe Toomey (SM20-24) of Hercules Wimbledon AC, was comfortably first over the line in 17:06 - 4th time in 15 appearances.
Nick McKay (VM35-39) of Wimbledon Windmilers, was next in 17:50 - has been first to finish on 2 previous occasions. He has had a run (or should I say “series”?) of good performances recently.
Adam Harwood (SM30-34) of Hercules Wimbledon AC, was third in 17:56 – he has finished first once before.
434 CS(15)

Current standing in the Men's annual points competition:

Andrew Lenon (Unattached) 4120 pts.
Peter Alasdair Fergus Collins (Wimbledon Windmilers) 4115 pts.
Robin Hutchinson (Wimbledon Windmilers) 3848 pts.

The people and positions are unchanged in the points battle.

 

Female placings:

Charlotte Clover (JW15-17) of Newbury AC, was first (16th overall) over the line in 19:31 - third time in 4 appearances. Well done to this junior!
Sally Underhill (SW25-29) (Unattached) was second (19th overall) in 19:38.
Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54) (Unattached) came in third (37th overall) in 20:37 - has been first to finish on 25 previous occasions.
434 CS(127)

Current standing in the Women's annual points competition:

Lucy Woolhouse (Unattached) 4479 pts.
Sarah Goodwin (Wimbledon Windmilers) 4088 pts.
Danuta K Grabda (Unattached) 3997 pts.

The people and positions are unchanged in the points battle.

 

Best Age-grade scores:

Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54) was graded 84.48% for the time 20:37 (37th overall).
Charlotte Clover (JW15-17) was graded 79.42% for the time 19:31 (16th overall).
Anni Struthers (VW70-74) was graded 79.01% for the time 28:11 (249th overall).

 

Other less obvious highlights:

• Paul Abraham is on 99 runs. He’ll be there next week!

• John “Cruiser” Krause was the best age-graded male at 77.72% and was only one second outside his PB.
434 CS(130)

• The Woolhouse combo – Hugh and Lucy – both completed their 199th run. Next week will be a double century double, let’s hope!!

• Performance to note: Henry Silverstein (JM11-14) in 18:56 and 7th overall. Well done! What potential!

• Mike Brewer is 2 off 250 runs. Don’t rush; there is a delay on the tee shirts!

• Quite by coincidence today’s report writer was first in his age group – first time ever. There were only two in his age group and I leave it to you to work out which age group it was!!

Wimbledon Common parkrun : Event 433 : April 4 2015

433 RW (1)

 

A very Happy Easter to everyone, especially the 257 runners who remembered that the second day of the long weekend was in fact Saturday and therefore parkrunday!  The Easter Bunny duly dropped off a supply of chocolate eggs at the finish line which was a great incentive, even if they were supposed to be for the kids…

After some exceptional conditions in March where PBs fell all over the place, the course has resumed its usual muddy self – there were however still an impressive 21 PBs recorded.

 

Milestones

Well done to Alice Aitken-Davies who completed her 100th run and to junior Leonardo Forchini who completed his 10th run. And welcome to the 28 First-timers at Wimbledon, particularly the 17 runners who were discovering parkrun for the first time. The start of some fabulous journeys – remember a slower run now, just means more PBs in the future!

 

#DFYB – or pay the price!

21 people completed the run without registering their position. As a general rule if you have forgotten your barcode you are not allowed to register your time – although this week heralded the arrival of a new moneybox and the promise of the time recorders turning a blind eye in return for a suitable donation – folding it up is optional!

 

Sweatshop prize

430 GG (286)

Paul grabbing another PB!

 
The Sweatshop prize for March goes to a very deserving Paul Busa, who smashed over a minute from his PB, whilst setting three new best times in three consecutive weeks, on runs number 103, 104 and 105 at Wimbledon. A shiny new pair of boots awaits…

 

Volunteers

Remember that parkrun is free and relies on the hard work of a group of volunteers to keep going. Thanks this week to Andrew Rice, Bob Walsh, Carol McCormack, Charles Hampden-Smith, Charles Lawrie, Clare Turnbull, Colin Harris, David Hall,  David William Scrimshaw, Dominic Ostrowski, Hugh Woolhouse, Jaspal Dhalley, John Sabourin, Lisa Margaret Thomas, Paul Tibbs, Pete Mulholland, Peter Metcalf, Rose Woolhouse, Sally Jane Jones and Sebastian Vons.

There was no change at the top of the standings where the manifoldly monikered Peter Alasdair Fergus Collins clings onto top spot – so another outing for his yellow jersey next week!

Wimbledon Common Parkrun 432 28 March 2015

HAWAII FIVE-0

Two 50 stories take pride of place this week. The first is about Christopher Cull, still only in the JM 10 category. Christopher has now done 50 parkruns and 34 junior parkruns, a pretty amazing achievement on its own for one so young. His 50th parkrun was this week’s at Wimbledon, where he has done all but four of his senior parkruns. To cap that, Christopher managed to obtain a personal best this week going under 24 minutes for the first time on a far from perfect course and with an age grade of 74.37% was amongst the highest age grades, all carried off with great modesty. Well done, Christopher ! A future first place finish awaits. His family provided a delicious cake as well, much appreciated by many. Christopher is pictured in a fab 50 top below, and holding a special 50 balloon, being applauded before the run.

432 GD (33)

Moving on to the second 50 story, Lisa Thomas celebrated her 50th birthday this week. This particular report writer tends to bang on about age grades, possibly because his 50th birthday is well past; but with their imperfections they remain the best way of comparing runners. Lisa, along with Lucy Woolhouse, are two of an elite bunch of parkrun regulars who hit the 80% mark consistently. As a very rough guide a 70% means you are good enough to compete at county or regional level and an 80% at national level. Attaining an 80% grade is difficult even on a track or road; to do it on our parkrun even once is a great achievement. Apart from being an outstanding runner, notching up a huge number of first finishes, this week being no exception, Lisa is a great supporter of parkrun, doing the set up and helping in other ways. Lisa is also a hugely popular figure, deservedly, and looked suitably embarrassed when Happy Birthday was enthusiastically sung to her before the run. Ian Higgins led a chorus of the Hawaii Five-0 theme. Andrew Fickling harnessed his impressive voice to the task of advertising and giving out pieces of the fantastic cake which had been made for Lisa, after the run, which she is seen finishing below, cool, calm and collected.

432 GD (261)

And by way of interlude, Wimbledon Parkrun's very own synchronised running team :

Moving on to the results, with the course still muddy on parts of parkside and wet and muddy near the lake, amongst the men Nic Gould finished first in 17.45, followed by Richard McDowell in 18:02 and Nick McKay in 18:17, Nick deciding to let others take the glory after two in a row.

432 GD (222)
Amongst the ladies Lisa Thomas was first home in 20:17 ahead of friend an rival Gina Galbraith, who is on a comeback from injury, in 20:32 and Medena Knespl, visiting from the US and taking a break from triathlon competition in which she excels, in 20:46. A 1,2,3 for Hercules Wimbledon.

As regards the age grades, the normal ratings topping by Lucy Woolhouse and Lisa Thomas occurred again with 83.80% and 82.66% respectively and Simon Bodle with a very good run coming in with the third highest at 76.90%.

Notable PBs this week for Fionn Clifford on her 109th run at Wimbledon (110 overall), Alison Good on her 52nd parkrun at Wimbledon (53 overall), Christopher Cull, mentioned above and Alistair James Baker who, on his 4th run at Wimbledon but 52nd parkrun, got an overall PB. Great performances from all of them.

Wimbledon Common parkrun, event 431, 21 March 2015

 

 

Double centuries, 150s, half centuries and a plethora of PBs

 

“In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside four and twenty hours.”

So wrote that great depth measurement, Mark Twain. His words will certainly resonate with anyone who’s been out running in recent days; this week I had the strange experience of being bombarded with a cross between hail, snow and rain in the same short squall – it was all and none of those things: snorail, perhaps.

Nevertheless, there’s been sunshine and dry weather too and the time-honoured course at Wimbledon Common has largely dried out to become firmer underfoot and faster – and as a result there were no less than 100 personal bests this week from the 340 finishers, which is almost 30 per cent of you!

431 CS(12)
The first day of spring saw balloons and cake for Matthew Salisbury and Sue Rothwell, who both completed their 200th parkruns – for Matthew, all but three have come at Wimbledon; Sue has run only one parkrun other than ours. Well done to them, the new holders of the Collins Cup and the Lawrie Trophy respectively. Both are regular volunteers.

431 CS(76)
Norman Urquia, picctured above, is a bit more of a tourist, having run 118 times at Wimbledon but completed 12 other parkruns at least once. There was only one place he could be on Saturday, though, for his 150th parkrun. Norm’s been running well recently, taking his PB down to 19.44 here and to 19.37 at the far easier (!) Fulham Palace. When you consider his PB in 2011 was in excess of 24 minutes, you can tell he’s put in a lot of work. He’s also a regular volunteer and is one of the event directors at the Sunday morning Wimbledon Park Junior parkrun, which makes him an all-round good egg in anyone’s book; if you've ever helped out at the junior event will know that he adds a calm authority to proceedings. Nice one, Norm!

Another to pass a milestone this week was Mike Beale, who completed his 50th parkrun.

There were some notable PBs. Simon Woodley’s 19:39 was obtained in his 89th parkrun here (though he’s run faster at Dulwich). This 14-second PB was his second in consecutive weeks, made even more remarkable by the fact that he hadn’t run a PB here since June 2013. The husband and wife team of Dom and Liz Ostrowski made it a double PB weekend: Liz’s 24:55 was her first time under 25 minutes and, like Simon, her second PB in consecutive weeks. Dom went one better, running his third consecutive PB – he’s now moved down from a best of 25:52 two weeks ago to 24:48 this time.

The aptly named Millie Good, JW10, smashed her personal best this week by exactly a minute, posting an excellent 26:10 on her 39th Wimbledon parkrun, her 40th overall. I keep mentioning him, but he is rather good and he’s a fantastic advert for junior parkrun too – Christopher Cull (JM10), in his 49th parkrun, posted a Wimbledon Common best of 24:03 for a 74 per cent age grade. And for the second week running, Danuta K Grabda posted a new PB, this time 23:36, her first time under 24 minutes at this event.

And another double, this time in the Busa household: father Paul ran 20:45, a third PB in three weeks and his first sub-21 in 106 parkruns here; daughter Isabella (JW15-17) ran 21:53, a three-second best, achieved in 86 parkruns on the common. And a big ‘ding dong’ to Lesley Phillips, who set a new PB of 29:17, his first here in under 30 minutes – carry on, Lesley!

431 CS(56)
This week’s men’s event panned out as follows. Over the line first was Matt Gallagher (above, VM35-39) of Wimbledon Windmilers with a time of 17:36 – this was the fifth time Matt has clamed the number one token in 55 appearances. Next was Andy Robinson (VM45-49) of Thames Hare & Hounds in 17:42. Andy has been first to finish seven times. And taking the last podium position was the unattached Doug Morton (SM25-29) in 18:08. ‘Greenock’, as no one calls him, has also been first to finish seven times.

It’s tight at the top in the men’s annual points beano, but just holding on to pole position is, well, me... Peter Alasdair Fergus Collins of Wimbledon Windmilers with 3,309 hard-earned points. Not far behind, sadly for me, is Andrew Lenon (unattached) with 3,293 points. Taking bronze at the moment is Robin Hutchinson of Wimbledon Windmilers with 3,104 points. Incidentally, I was resigned to losing that lead this week and in honour of that totally drug-free and uncorrupt bicycle race that I believe starts in Yorkshire and ends both in France and in tears, I wore a yellow jersey (see pic below, sorry for the self-promotion) to go down with a degree of pride. I shall wear it again this week and hope Andrew will take up the mantle when he inevitably takes top position this coming week.
431 CS(89) 431 CS(24)
In the women’s event, first over the line was the excellent Ruth Wallace (above, right, SW30-34, 12th overall) of Thames Hare & Hounds in 19:09. This was her 25th first in 32 appearances. It must have been a great battle, because just behind her, Alexandra Brown (JW11-14, unattached, 13th overall) posted a time just two seconds slower, 19:11. And Alexandra’s remarkable time gave her the second best age grading of the day (see below). The very consistent and unattached Lucy Woolhouse (VW50-54) was next (37th overall) in 20:34 – she has been first to finish on 25 occasions. In the women's annual points competition, Lucy is top on 3,586 points, Sarah Goodwin (Wimbledon Windmilers) next on 3,502 and Danuta K Grabda (unattached) is third on 3,146 pts.

Lucy also tops this week’s age grade scores, with 84.68%. The aforementioned Alexandra Brown got 83.23% and the evenmoreaforementioned Andy Robinson was 82.67%.

Of the 340 runners, 25 were first timers. Representatives of 19 different athletics clubs took part. Wimbledon Common parkrun started on 6 January 2007, and since then 11,988 different runners, including participants from 507 athletics clubs, have completed 87,211 runs covering a total distance of 436,055 km, and there have been 15,574 new PBs.

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 gGrade course record is held by Jane Davies, who recorded 92.99% for the time 21:24 on 29 January 2011 (event number 212). Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimbledon Common parkrun results page.
