A generation parkrun – run report 598, 19 Jan 2019

Just to show parkrun is for any age, three generations of the Sadler family, aged seven to nearly 67, plus the dog (no age given!) completed our parkrun this week, five of them for the first time! Evidently they'll be back!

Well done to Isabella Hull, who celebrated her 100th with a PB, yours was our only milestone this week.

Thanks to you all for bearing with us as we trialled a new finish funnel and scanner approach, we're still working on it, so thanks for your feedback.

February 2 is our 600th, we'll be heading across to Wrangthorn Church afterwards, where they have offered to host our celebration and provide hot drinks and cake, let us know if you plan to join us, so we can make sure we have enough cake! It'll be an informal gathering, so just come along and enjoy yourselves!

A record-breaking week! Run report 597 12 Jan 2019

We had a record-breaking turn-out this week, 721 of you joined us - though we suspect many of you came to support George Webster, who was being filmed by Sky TV. George, who first came to parkrun five years ago when he was just 13, and immediately loved it, is now one of our parkrun ambassadors. The programme, made in partnership with Vitality, one of our sponsors, is one of a series featuring parkrunners. Thanks to all who supported him, the programme will be aired in April.

We're hoping many of you will help us celebrate our 600th parkrun on February 2 in our usual parkrun fashion - with cake. We'll be heading over to Wrangthorn Church after our parkrun where there will be cake, cake and more cake along with warm drinks and a warm welcome.

This week, Ai-Lyn Tan ran her 300th, Pamela Tranter her 250th, Dylan Williams his 150th and Daniel Wright his 100th. There were three new members of the 50 Club, Hilary Rees celebrated with a PB, Paul Scantlebury and Paul Dickens also ran their 50ths. Bhumika Patel earned her junior 10 Club tee-shirt.

721 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 106 were first timers and 81 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 47 different clubs took part.

Start as you mean to go on! Run report 596, 5 Jan 2019

It looked like we had a lot of new year resolutions to parkrun this week! There were just short of 600, with 78 joining us for the first time - and some coming along as they have done every week for a few years!

Well done to Amanda and David Birkby and Steve O'Hara who ran their 400ths at Woodhouse Moor, they have run many more at 439, 440 and 445 respectively. It'll be 2020 before they can claim their blue 500 tee-shirts, though! Ian Rosser ran his 250th, Jim Rowland his 200th, Jane Oughton her 150th and Andy Webster his 100th. At just five years old, Sam Edwards became one of our youngest ever 50 Club members. Lisa Gye and Paul Tapper also ran their 50ths. Joe Carr earned his junior 10 tee-shirt.

Next week as part of Vitality’s parkrun sponsorship, they have commissioned Sky and Diagonal View to make a series of films.  The films will feature parkrunners and their respective stories as well as the positive benefits both in mind and body that regular community exercise promotes. That means they will be filming our parkrun and possibly you if you are coming along. If you don’t want to be featured for any reason please make a member of the crew aware of this and they will avoid filming you during the day and you will not be featured.

And look out for more details on our 600 celebrations on February 2, which is Groundhog Day!

Happy new year, parkrunners! Were you one of our 598 runners on New Year's Day? Did you go on to a second one? It looks like the new favourite destination is Armley, less than two miles away, with 194 of you going there, many running in between! 116 went to Temple Newsam and one went to Selby, though I don't think they ran!

As always, we had a dedicated bunch of volunteers who were in a deserted park at 8.15am to set up. Thank you to them, we couldn't parkrun without our volunteers.

We're coming up for our 600th in February - how do YOU want to celebrate? (Other than with a PB!)

See you Saturday, we have pacers to help you get that PB!
