EVENT CANCELLED 15th FEBRUARY 2020

After keeping an eye on the weather all week the Core Team have made the decision to cancel tomorrows event.

We know there will be some disappointed people but we have to think of the safety of our runners, walkers and volunteers. Our signs will not withstand the potential 50 mph winds!

Thank you to everyone who had volunteered for tomorrow you may now have a well deserved lie in.

We look forward to seeing you all next week when hopefully this windy weather has blown away!

We do have spaces on the roster for next week and Sarah will be very grateful if those could be filled as soon as possible :)

Kind regards

Barnstaple Core Team

 

Event 355 9th November 2019

What a soggy event we had on Saturday. I think it was one of the wettest events we have ever had. Thank you to each and every hardcore person who came along to take part or support those taking part. This week 139 people splished, splashed, ran, jogged and fast walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers (you really do deserve a medal for coming out today) and 13 recorded new Personal Bests (you were all in rush to get home and dry). Representatives of 16 different clubs took part. We had visitors from Combe Martin, Exeter and Marlow.

We were fortunate to be overtaken by a huge team from Brannams Medical Centre who provided 14 of the High Viz Heros names below plus several others who just came along to help and support. Thank you very much for your help and support.

Barnstaple parkrun run report
By Karl Johnson
Home parkrun: Pontypridd

So we were fortunate that today’s parkrun was taking place. With so many cancellations across the South West and Wales - this little welsh tourist was fortunate to miss all the weather related issues!
Staying in the lovely Ruda Holiday park on Croyde - the closest parkrun was Woolacombe - but not risking it a sensible decision to head inland was best..

Lovely warm welcome from run director Shelly greeted myself - my travel buddie Chris and 67 parkrunners.... low attendance today due to some small rugby match?? I dunno what’s wrong with people, why would you miss a parkrun???
Anyway less said about the rugby the better....

Warm welcomes extended to new parkrunners and all visitors/tourists.
2 and 3/4 figure of eight loops awaited the runners in a rather wet and boggy course. There was no escaping the various puddles and lake (photos to follow) on the route. The wind howled as you run down the riverside and the rain fell for a short while but it didn’t put anyone Of these hardcore parkrunners off.

This week 67 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 15 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:

Chris DENT • Nikki EATHERINGTON • Iain HINDES • Shelly WILLIAMS • Donna MARRIOTT • Lorrie WOOLGAR • Barbara NICOL • Alan NICOL • Julie WILKINS • Hana WILKINS • Sarah SIMPSON • Karl JOHNSON • Paul FLEMING • Shaun HARBORD • Jeff CREBBIN • Joe CREBBIN •

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Barnstaple parkrun Results Page.

With massive thanks to all the volunteers for making this event possible today.

Until we meet again
Happy parkrunning

Karl
