Event 376 – 18/05/19

It was a pleasant spring day for the 321 runners who completed the summer course and there was no shortage of volunteers as people were saving themselves for the Crouch End 10k the following day. There were 39 running for the first time at ally pally, and 43 people achieved a PB.

First home were Thomas Burden 18.11, Sam Peach 18.14 and an unknown runner .

The fastest women all came in almost together,  at positions 58-60, Amira Kohler 24.06, Alice Victor 24.10 and Fiona Carr 24.17.

Fastest juniors were Ben Redland, Zac Paul and Olivier Mudry.

Best age grades were Mike Hurford, Ben Redland and David Dugdale.

Some of us enjoyed a coffee from Daniel's van, but this proved to be the last one. Unfortunately, following the trial run, Daniel concluded that it was not financially viable to attend on a regular basis, although we are hoping that he will return as a one-off for our anniversary in December.

Please note the cancellation dates of 6th July and 17th August when there will be other events going on in the park.

Well done to all those who completed their events at Crouch End.

EVENT CANCELLATIONS – 6th July and 17th August 2019

Please be advised that there will be NO Ally Pally parkrun on Saturday 6th July 2019. This is due to the construction of the Soap Box Race course which will be held in the park that weekend.

There will also be NO Ally Pally parkrun on Saturday 17th August 2019. The Great Fete will be held on the same day therefore we will be unable to hold parkrun that day.

Please let your fellow parkrunners, family, friends and colleagues know to avoid disappointment. You may want to give another local parkrun a go (Finsbury Park, Hampstead Heath, Highbury Fields e.t.c.) or try one further afield like new event Sunny Hill in Hendon.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Event 375 – 11/05/2019

A heavy rain shower at the start failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the 364 runners taking part, particularly those celebrating special milestones:- Beau and Marc Wilson (50 and 200 respectively), Rodger Thompstone (250) and Ian Windle (100). Congratulations to them.

It was a very close finish with William Griffiths just holding off Gareth Creagh and Ed Boden.

First women home were Laura Wilson, Natalie Shoham and Caroline White.

First juniors were Charlie Johnston, Monte Watson, Janak Subberwal and Eric Beale.

Best age grades (as usual!) were Helen Mayer, Caroline White and Mike Hurford.

Daniel's coffee van proved popular, and we are hoping that this will be a regular feature, but this depends on him doing enough business to make it worthwhile so please don't forget to bring your pocket money!



Avoiding showers

The London Marathon weekend is always a strange one for London parkruns. Many of our regular runners are saving there legs for the 26 and some odd change miles thay will be running tomorrow. However we also have a lot of visitors to town for the weekend who want to stretch their legs and get a tourist tick in there parkrun challenges box. So judging how busy we will be can be difficult. This mornings threat of the last of the April showers did keep a few people away so it turned out to be a nice turnout today with 329 parkrunners braving the possible soaking which as it happens did not occur, so all good here.

This week 329 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 56 were first timers and 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 22 volunteers:

Catherine EDEAM • Caroline WHITE • Rodger THOMPSTONE • Janet SMITH • Maria VERNAZZA • Michelle VAN DER KNAAP • Shay KOHLER • Michelle BRISTER • Theo GATWARD • Ed TYTHERLEIGH • Robert DENTON • Lewis HATFULL • Shane LANGAN • Mike HURFORD • Nye AIDEN CHAUHAN • Henry VAN DER KNAAP • Stephanie BURNS • Anne THOMPSTONE • Andreas REINER • Ruth MOULTON • Amanda CERNY • Ella CERNY
