Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number 307 – 9th March 2019

If you want a great idea of our run this week, please do check the video that we posted on Saturday courtesy of Caroline Baker. So these are just the headlines!
 
We had 408 people taking part, 46 first timers people and 26 Pbs. Well done if that was you!
 
We needed 40 volunteers to put this week's run on (higher number due to pacers). Please do step forward if you can help Clarke fill the roster for this week.
 
We had a few significant runs. Patrick Gosling completed his 250th, Nicki Cartwright, Charlotte Dyer and Brian Shand all completed their 100. Trevor Morgan, Russel Valiant and Paul Stafford all completed their 50 and Amelie Dryer and Freddie De la Sayette completed their 10th! Congratulations!
 
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page. Our first male over the line this week was unfortunately unknown, so please do remember your barcodes. Our fastest female was Sophia Hodges in 22:46. Our fastest male junior was Robbie Andrews (11-14) who finished in 20:04 and our fastest female junior was Emma Sarginson (15-17) who finished in 25:33.
 
Until next week,
Happy parkrunning,

Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number 306 – 2nd March 2019

We thought it was fabulous to be back on the hill and apparently, you agreed with us! Even with the Cambridge half the following day we had our largest field for a while with 396 of you taking part! Out of those 396, 37 were first timers with 9 runners completing their first ever parkrun. 40 recorded new Personal Bests and our PB shout outs are going to: James Thompson - who completed his 250th! and to Alfie and Henry Pipe who both managed to clock pbs at the weekend. It must have been a happy Pipe household on Saturday with only 17 seconds between them!
 
The event was made possible by 39 volunteers. Volunteers are the life blood of parkrun and we value each and everyone of you. Many thanks for your support - and there are always extra positions for those of you that haven't been tempted yet. It is worth reminding people that we are all volunteers - and all giving up our run to enable the parkrun to happen. Please do join us!
 
As mentioned we did have some significant runs this weekend too with James Thompson completing his 250th - Thanks for all the treats! Dean Rilley completed his 100th and Christine Downham, Damon Rainsford and Wayne McCulloch all completed their 50th runs. Excellent running all.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page.
However, our headlines were that Paul Begley led the field home in 18:22, and our fastest female was Fiona Tideswell who finished in 21:31. On to our juniors and our fastest male junior was Alfie Pipe (11-14) in 19:45 and our fastest female junior was Etta Salam-Browne (11-14) who finished in 24:24.
 
We will be back on the hill this weekend, and we will have a paced run again. We'd love to see as many of you there as possible.
 
Until Saturday ...

Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number 303 – 9th February 2019

It was one of those weeks when Southerners were probably best advised to stay at home and not travel and Northerners needed their big coat! However, that didn't stop 321 people heading out in gale force winds to tackle our winter course with a head wind!
 
Unbelievably, we had 4 folk who picked the windiest parkrun ever as their first - we can confidently say it will be easier for you next week; and thanks for coming along.
 
Against the wind we also had 11 who completed a PB, to be honest were not sure what you've been doing the rest of the time; unless there was part of the course when you were simply blown along?? Congratulations if you were one of those lucky 11.
 
As ever we were extremely grateful to our volunteers. If you haven't volunteered yet - please do get involved. The more people that do, the more sustainable our event becomes (and some of our regulars would really like to run - you could make that happen!) Clarke is being a volunteer co-ordinator for the first time this week - he'd love your support!
 
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page. However, I need to give a big shout out to Brian O'Connor. He crossed the line in 19:06 (which was slower than usual to be honest, due to the wind) but this was his 50th first finisher at Wimpole! Congratulations Brian!
 
Our first lady also had a tremendous run - Rachel Leah, came in 3rd place overall, with a time of 20:16, and that was also her 100th parkrun - welcome to the black T shirt wearing gang, Rachel.
 
Onto our juniors and our fastest male junior was Lucas Blackwell (15 - 17) in 21:07 and our fastest female junior was Emily Talbot (11-14), who was 2nd lady overall and finished in 21:52. Definitely two to watch for the future!
 
We had several significant runs this weekend. Mark Burrows, Iain Curran and Rachel Leah all entered the 100 club, and Anthony Smith entered the 50 club - Well done to all.
 
Until next week ...
Happy parkrunning....

It was a chilly one and we had a rather curious first finisher in our midst too! Thanks for all your help with parking and change of route course; it all meant that we were safely able to go ahead and run on what turned out to be a glorious morning. (Our course was also deliberately slightly longer ... to prevent those false PBs! although 13 of you still managed to secure one!)
 
We had 333 mad people, who pulled themselves out of bed as they couldn't resist the temptation of a Wimpole sausage roll! We also had seven people who picked Saturday as their first ever parkrun, we have no idea why, but it was marvellous to meet you and we hope you enjoyed your snowy jaunt around our beautiful course.
 
We needed 25 volunteers; thank you to those who offered. I also promised the return of Volunteer Bingo - so our numbers this week were 11, 63, 67, 180 and 216. if you finished in those positions and match our guidelines we'd 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 Maka led the field home and crossed the line in 19:01, just stealing the victory from Tom Beach who finished in 19:03. Zoe MacDonald was our first lady home, with a time of 20:30. Our fastest male junior was Luca McGrath (11-14) with a time of 20:54 and 10th place overall. Our fastest female junior was Sophie Kerswell (11-14) who finished in 26:23. Excellent running one and all!
 
We had a few significant runs ... Wendy Johnson, Amelie Kirchgaessner, Liz O' Donovan and Samuel Lucas, take a bow for joining the 100 club; Will Hallybone and Daryl Brooke do the same for joining the 50 club and Maxim Humphrey your shout out is for becoming our newest member of the junior 10 club (that's 50K you've run!)
 
Until next week ...
 
Happy parkrunning,

Wimpole Estate parkrun: Event number 301 – 26th January 2019

IMG_3477

Well better late than never ... I thought I'd best get last week's parkrun report written before we started with this week's run!

We had several folk who were celebrating key runs. No 250s (although we have some coming up!) no 100s (but hopefully several tomorrow) but we did have 2 50s! Well done to Sophia Hodges and Robert King! (selfie board attached!)

So, last Saturday 349 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 38 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Please join us again next week!

The sprint for the cafe and the sausage rolls was lead by Ben Veitch in 19:14; our first female was Tansy Challis who was 4th overall and finished in 19:59. Our fastest male junior was Robbie Andrews (11-14) who was 11th and finished in 20:30 with our fastest female junior being Emily Talbot (11-14) who finished in 21:07. Excellent running by all!

The event was made possible by 27 volunteers; please remember to thank them as you pass them on the course etc. They have given up their run to enable you to have yours. On that note, we've taken a deliberate break from volunteer bingo - but it will return in the morning!

Until then ...

Happy parkrunning,

Debs & James
