BECKTON PARK RUN 14/03/20

Hi, great turnout this morning which had an few more runners than usual (61 in total) - which there was no major incidents which was our 411th park run.
Unfortunately this could be our last park run for a while depending on the coronavirus implications.
Weather was dry and quite pleasant but the course is still a bit soggy in places.
There was a few visitors today which also had a couple of first timers to the park run family.

 

Run report 29/2/20

Just 30 braves souls faced the rain at Beckton today and became part of history by taking part in the first ever parkruns on this date. Unsurprisingly given the boggy conditions underfoot no pb's were achieved today, but we were happy to welcome all our visitors with 12 of you visiting for the first time. It was especially nice to welcome the Wimbledon Windmilers who stayed and enjoyed a hot drink with us.Thanks as always to all the volunteers who gave up their time on a very wet morning we couldn't do it without you. If you would like to volunteer in the future please speak to us on a Saturday or email Beckton office.
Have a good week all.

Beckton Park Run 408, 22/2/20

Another good run on a windy day. Pretty muddy after Storms Ciara and Dennis. Still, 5 PBs and 20 first timers to Beckton, including 7 from the Baker family, and 2 first ever Park Runners. Well done everyone! And happy birthday Sherry!

BECKTON PARK RUN 01-02-20

hi everyone,

another fantastic parkrun today with 52 runners on a sunny but slightly chilly day - had a couple of parkrun tourists today which was great.
apparently results will be slightly delayed as there are technical issues with their website-results downloaded which may take a while for them to be published.

A great shout to all our regular volunteers for another outstanding job this morning.

regards.

 

Beckton Parkrun number 403

Well done to all 61 runners who came out on a cold, crisp but sunny morning, including a good number of 19 newcomers to Beckton which we always seem to get - notably the 'Burgess on Tour' group from south London - and 4 PBs.

As usual, thanks to all our volunteers who make this thing sing - fortunately a plentiful supply of you today. Special thanks to Keeley, our 'guest' Tail Walker. As always we can use more! It gives our regular volunteers a chance to run more often.

We have International Women's Day coming up on 7 March, so watch this space for ways we will be supporting this event.

Take care and see you next week.

Parkrun number 401

It was a lovely bright sunny morning at Beckton today, well done to the 64 of you who came out for the first run of 2020. A nice way for Dave to start his 64th birthday celebrations.
Congratulations to the two of you who achieved PB's in the mud although it wasn't actually that back today and congratulations also go to Sherry who completed her 150 run today.
Our thanks as always go to those who gave up their time to volunteer without you we wouldn't be able to run the events so we are very grateful. If you would like to volunteer in the future please speak to one of the RD's or email the Beckton Office remember parkrun recommends that you volunteer at least 3 times throughout the year and we always appreciate the help.
A very Happy New Year to you all.

Beckton Park Run 14/12/2019 Event 397

Soggy underfoot but otherwise fairly mild for mid-December. Well done to the 48 who turned up - with visitors from Billericay, Cambridge, Cassiobury and Huntingdon. So a total of 18 first-timers to Beckton (over a third of the runners!) - but no PBs in these conditions!

4 runners were on their first ever Park Run, and one of them was Paul Ojo who just pipped Philip Whitehouse to the line in an exciting finish. Well done Paul!

Congratulations also to Allyson Johnson who completed her 250th Park Run - quite an achievement! Thanks for the celebratory cakes Allyson!

As we approach Christmas we will do the draw for a London Marathon place next week. And we also plan to run on Christmas Day, so check Facebook and other announcements.

Have a great week!

Beckton ParkRun 392 – 09/11/2019

So this was the first run of the 'post-Lindsay Russell' era. A hard act to follow, both on the running and the scanning duties! We'll miss him and Vicky.

At 8 o'clock the weather was foggy and cold and I doubted we would get many takers. But by 9 the sun had broken through and overhead conditions were much more pleasant (underfoot was a different story, with some slippery patches due to rain and fallen leaves). So we had 49 runners, with 4 PBs - well done to you all.

Thanks especially to Amanda who celebrated her 100th run by bringing lots of fairy cakes - appropriately decorated with black '100' shirt motifs. (I had to be careful not to put 'blackshirts' there ;-))

Thanks as always to our faithful volunteers - this event couldn't continue without you guys. If anyone else wants to help out in any way please speak to John Wise or one of the other RDs - there's plenty of jobs to do each week, large and small.

See you next time and have a great week.

Colin

 

BECKTON PARK RUN 2/11/19

Hi all,

This morning was a very wet and windy parkrun hence the slightly low turnout but still had 43 runners which there was 10 first timers today and 1 PB - well done to all those runners today.
Had an coffee and cake morning afterwards as an sad farewell to two of our regular park runners (Lindsay Russell and Vicky Park) who are both moving further away so will not be able to attend our parkrun in the future but had an great send off.

 

Run report 19th October 2019

A lovey bright sunny morning at Beckton today and although quiet hopefully you all had a good day.
We had seven runners visiting for the first time and 3 people achieving a personnel best time, well done all of you.
Today we said goodbye to two of our regular runner/volunteers Sirpa is retiring to Finland and Katherine is returning to her home town in Worcester for a while but will return to see us all I'm sure. Good luck both of you in your new ventures in life.
Next week see's The Rotary Club's crocus planting project where they will be planting crocus and snowdrops as well as hopefully participating in the run first. We look forward to see a bright colourful park in the spring.
Have a good week all.
