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

 

New parking restrictions

Please be advised that new parking restrictions will apply on the small crescent-shaped parking area near the exit from Alexandra Palace station. This will be on days when Spurs are playing at home, and is connected with the shuttle bus service to the new stadium. It appears that the temporary restriction will apply throughout the day, so you may risk a penalty if you park in the coned area. Just a warning!

 

Ally Pally parkrun CANCELLED – 2nd February 2019

Please be advised that we inspected the course at dusk today and have decided to cancel the run on Saturday 2nd February due to snow and ice on all our courses (main and alternatives) making it unsafe for parkrunners and volunteers. Apologies for any inconvenience caused but the health and safety of parkrunners and volunteers must come first. Please forward this message onto anyone who is thinking of coming to avoid disappointment.

Our plan is to return next week 9th February (weather permitting)!
