Worthing parkrun Event #130 5th January 2019

I’m going to start with our volunteers this week because, as we know, each week is only ever made possible by our volunteers. So, it’s always nice when, as Run Director, someone comes up to you to say thank you (it happens a lot) - but even nicer when they say how great our volunteers are (that happens a lot too, because they are all great). This week though, I thought I would just share one conversation I had with a runner who wanted to thank James MILLEN for his on course support in his capacity as a marshal. They said he was “brilliant and encouraging every runner”. I guess as a veteran of over 100 parkruns himself, I’m sure James knows how important that ‘on course’ encouragement can be to all runners.

Thanks also to Val SMITH who stepped in to carry out the First Timers Briefing this week, before taking part in her 78th parkrun and then finishing the day with a spot of Token Sorting.

We had a total of 31 volunteers this week, so our thanks goes to all of the following for making the event possible.

James MILLEN • Lisa PIPER • Hugh STEVENAGE • Helen DOOTSON • Debbie BIRCH • Craig HARDWICK • Benjamin CHAMBERS • Trudi RYAN • Lee SPICER-HOWARD • Sarah PALMER • Chris MCALEES • Rebecca JEWITT • Lana CHRISTMAS • Simon OWEN • Drew HAMMERSLEY • Daisy BASHFORD • Stuart BAULK • Val SMITH • Mike BELTON • Crispin JEWITT • Sarah ENGLAND • Nicholas MAY • Lucy MAY • Lorna DENNISON-WILKINS • David HENDERSON • Biff BAKER • Keith ASHALL • James COLCOMBE • Alex BROADHURST • Caroline WEBB • Leo CHRISTMAS

Our 2nd event of 2019 saw 487 people run, jog and walk the course. There were 57 First Timers, of whom 36 were taking part in their very first parkrun, 70 people achieved Personal Bests and representatives from 32 different clubs took part.

There were personal milestones for Phil TURNER who joins the parkrun 50 Club, while Steve MOLLOY and Rachel HARTNETT both clocked up their 100th parkrun – Congratulations to you all.

We were delighted to welcome Ken Willo to the Worthing volunteer 50 bobble hat club! Thank you Ken for volunteering so many times at Worthing parkrun and of course for the beginners programme you have put together too for us.

parkrun can only happen each week thanks to the volunteers who give up their time to make it happen - everyone involved with Worthing parkrun is a volunteer from our two Event Directors Matt & Duncan to all of our core team and the many people who give up their time each Saturday. Please consider volunteering every so often at Worthing parkrun in 2019 to keep it going.
