Run report for 29th April

Wimpole Estate parkrun
Event number 218
29th April 2017
 
I thought I had better get around to last week's run report before tomorrow morning ... Sorry for the delay everyone!
 
So 403 people ran, jogged and walked the course last Saturday and we had 49 first timers and 71 new PBs!. All of this was possible as 31 of you either got up early, stayed late or gave up your run to volunteer - thank you very much!
 
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page, but the running scores on the doors were led by Paul VEITCH (VM45-49) who crossed the line in 18:45, on his fresh marathon legs!
Luke WILLIAMS (SM30-34) was second for the men (third overall) in 19:17 and Richard ZUBRIK (VM35-39) was third (4th overall) completing the run in 19:18.
 
Carla BROWN (SW30-34) was first (second overall) for the ladies crossing the finish line in 19:11. She was followed by Fiona TIDESWELL (VW40-44) in 21:00 and Jo EGGEMAN (SW30-34) in 22:16.
 
So far at Wimpole we have clocked up a total running distance of 249,910 km meaning that we will cross the 250 000 km this Saturday. Between us all we have also completed 49,982 parkruns, so as long as 18 of you turn up and run tomorrow we'll cross the 50,000 mark there too.
 
This data has been helped by Rebecca Howling and Simon Skinner who both completed their 100 run this week and also by Rebecca Howling and Chris Duffett who have now crossed a parkrun finish line 50 times!
 
The final good news ... only one more sleep 'til parkrun!
 

Run report for 22nd April 2017

Wimpole Estate parkrun
Event number 217
22nd April 2017

Unfortunately, we had a few mix-ups with the results this week, so some results may be slightly off. The core team and particularly Anya have spent more time then is reasonable to expect trying to resolve issues - so a huge THANK YOU goes to them.

This week 391 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 43 were first timers and 89 recorded new Personal Bests (we think ...) Representatives of 43 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 33 volunteers.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page.

Congratulations go to Oliver KIDD (SM20-24) for being first over the line in 18:07 with Grant Stefan CHAPMAN (VM40-44) of Royston Runners, coming in second at 18:13. Jake WATSON (SM20-24) of University of York AC, was third over the line in 18:32.

On to the girls - Emma BAILEY (VW40-44) of Canicross Cambridgeshire, was first (7th overall) over the line in 18:51, followed by our very own VC Fiona TIDESWELL (VW40-44) who was second female (21st overall) in 21:03. Lauren DAVISON (SW30-34) of Royston Runners, was third.

Congratulations go to Nicki Cartwright, Cassie Highland and Avice O'Connor for completing their 50s and to Mike Brettle and Philip Orme for gaining their membership to the 100 club.

Please remember that all of this is only possible with our wonderful vols ... do think about pitching it too!
Until next Saturday ...

This week’s run report – 15th April

This week's run report - number 216
15th April 2017

Wow, we are getting very popular with 447 people turning up to Wimpole parkrun! Of those 88 were first timers and 103 recorded new Personal Bests, about a quarter of you! Representatives of 42 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 33 volunteers.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page.
We had the unusual event of a new course record being set by an unknown runner (15:50) - not the week to forget your barcode! However, Brian O'CONNOR (VM35-39) was second over the line in 17:07 and Tim STREET (SM25-29) of Holmfirth Harriers AC, was third over the line in 18:12.

For the ladies, it looks as though Samantha JONES (SW30-34) of Stockport Harriers & AC, was doing a bit of tourism and was first (41st overall) over the line in 21:06. Charlotte HOSKINS (VW35-39) of Winchester and District AC, was second (52nd overall) over the line in 21:55 - again a wee Easter weekend visit, and Asia HAMDORFF (SW18-19) was third (67th overall) over the line in 22:49. Well done to all of you!

As we continue to grow week by week, please do sign up to receive our emails to ask for volunteers - we can't do it without you and we all have busy lives too!

Happy parkrunning - and DFYB : you never know, you might get a course record!

Cancellation – 25 February 2017

parkrun!

Doris has done a fair amount of damage on the Estate and there are at least three trees down on the course. There is not enough time for the forester and his colleagues to clear the course before tomorrow's run so we therefore have to cancel our event.

Thanks to all our volunteers who had been prepared to get out of bed just that little bit earlier in order to allow us to run. Huge thanks go to the estate staff and volunteers who give us our glorious venue in which to play.

If you're going to get your parkrun fix elsewhere this week, then please check the website to make sure that your chosen run is going ahead. We hope that we will be back next week and we'll keep you up to date here, on Facebook and on Twitter.

Richard
