Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number #284 – Saturday 6th October

run fair wimpole

Hello Wimpolians and visitors!

What a Saturday we had!! We had estimated starting at 9.15am but we had not counted on the rain and it was distinclty chilly!! I ran the course at 730am and got soaking wet and only now I stopped shivering.
Thank you to all the clubs who turned up with their flags, vests and banter. We had great feedback.

The run saw Brian O'Connor finish first in a speedy 17:52, first Male Junior was Lucas Blackwell in 20:35 and Carla Brown was the first lady in 21:08. First Female Junior was Emily Talbot in 22:27. Great running!!

Our pacers did a sterling job - if you fancy pacing do let us know, it is fun and very rewarding if you hit your time and pull others along to reach new PBs.

As ever our thanks go to the marshalls without whom Parkrun would not exist. Please try and volunteer, if you are unsure ask the Run Director, he/she will be happy to explain what is required.

Harry is in the directing operations next Saturday so you could not be in better hands.

Have a great week and happy running

Debs and James

Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number 283 – 22nd September 2018

Another glorious week at Wimpole when we welcomed 333 of you to one of the most beautiful parkruns in the country. Of those 333 people 29 were first timers and 58 recorded new Personal Bests.
Of those 58, 6 had already completed 50 parkruns and they were: David Spurge, Wis Wang-Koh, Abigail Martin, Simon Forbes, Tina Hamilton and John Shepherd. For those of you who haven't had a PB for years (like me!) at least aim for best time this year on Saturday!
 
Representatives of 29 different clubs took part. Please remember to wear your club vests on Sat 6th Oct - all will be out in force!
 
To run our parkrun this week we needed 30 volunteers - we are looking quite healthy for this week and next, but if you've been the lucky winner of Volunteer Bingo, or would simply like to give something back, we'd love to hear from you for future weeks.
 
Our headlines today were that Brian O' Connor led the field hold in 17:26, and our fastest female was Sophia Hodges who finished in 21:49. Our fastest male junior was Lucas Blackwell (15-17), who crossed the line in 20:29 and our fastest female junior was Sophie Kerswell - congratulations to everyone!
 
Onto our significant runs and this week we had one 50th runner; Joanna Jones and one junior claiming their 10th who was Isabella Jackson. I'm going to sneak in a quick mention to one of our regular runners, Rob Moir who managed to complete his 250 at Milton this week. Fantastic running!
 
Next week, 29th, James is in the hot seat. Wimpole have a bit of an event on, so there will be stores and the chance to make a few purchases. Due to that we will be on our winter course for one week only - so the chance to get a speedy 5k in with perfect conditions and no hill, so you could possibly bag that elusive PB.
 
Until next week ...

Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number 282 – 15th September 2018

It was a glorious morning on Saturday for a parkrun. This week 352 people ran, jogged and walked the course. We had 46 first timers and out of those 15 completed their first ever parkrun with the rest being tourists. We'd love to see those 15 make it back next week for run number 2. It was also a glorious morning for a PB, not too warm, not too cold, in other words, perfect running conditions. 51 of you recorded new Personal Bests and our shout outs this week are going to all of you who got a pb after already completing 50 runs. They are:
Tina Hamilton, Alma Piotrowicz, Chris Potter, Amy Steele and David Nugent. Brilliant running.
 
We had 30 volunteers this week; as ever, we are very grateful. Please do think about stepping up and volunteering next week - and if you've not opted in to our volunteer emails, please do follow the link on your results and opt in, then you'll know when we're desperate; and you don't have to wait until you win volunteer bingo :-).
 
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page. However, our headlines this week were that Adam Howlett was first over the finish line in a time of 17:25. Our first lady was Emma Bailey who was 5th overall and finished in 19:12. Our fastest male junior was William Howling (15-17) who was just behind Emma, finished in 7th place with a time of 19:24. Finally, our fastest female junior was Emily Talbot (11-14) who crossed the line in 21:44.
 
Tina Hamilton completed her 50th parkrun this week with a PB! John Shepherd also completed his 50th too - congratulations to both.
 
We'll be having a Running Fair at Wimpole on the 6th Oct, if you belong to a club, please dig out your club vest for that morning. Don't worry, our parkrun will happen as usual.
 
Until next week ...

Wimpole Estate park run: Event number 281 – 8th September 2018

It was wonderful to see so many of you being active on the course on Saturday - 350 in total. Unfortunately, due to having to re-route around the cows and other such wildlife, our course was slightly short this week - our apologies for that and we are working on a solution if we have to cut any corners in the future.
 
Out of the 350 of you - 33 were first timers to Wimple. Of those, 12 of you completed your first ever parkrun, so welcome along to the family!
 
With a slightly short course 125 of you achieved a PB! Far too many to mention by name, and the course for the non dog runners was about 4.9 km, so please do bear that in mind when aiming for that elusive goal.
 
The Wimpole magic only happens with volunteers and being a rare breed farm and a single lap course, we do need a lot of you! A huge thank you to the 32 vols this week. Please do join in the volunteering side of things too. Your parkrun needs you! Our volunteer bingo winners this week were Alistair Feming, Matt Bassford, Maura Screaton, Melanie Fleming and Heather Lawrence - if any of you are out there and reading this, then we would love to hear from you!
 
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page. However, our headlines were that the field was led home by an Unknown male (please #DFYB). Our fastest female was Carla Brown, who led the ladies home in 18:22 and 5th place overall. Our fastest male junior was Daniel Davey (15-17) who was 20th overall and crossed the line in 20:28 and our fastest female junior was Emily Talbot (11 - 14), who finished in 21:10 - Excellent running by all!
 
We had several significant runs this week, namely: David Nugent and Martyn Fisher who both completed their 100th, and Hannah Muncey who completed her 50th in proper style with a PB to boot.
 
A future date for your diary on 6th October we will be having a running fair at Wimple, which will just be an informal chance for you to find out about local running groups that are available for you to join in you wish to take your running any further.
 
Until next week ....
