Belton House parkrun
Event number 156
18th May 2019

After a drizzly and quite cool start to the morning, the rain held off long enough for 386 of you to
run, jog or walk our beautiful course at Belton House this week.
The first timers briefing was very well attended with 66 of you choosing Belton House as your venue
Included in these were the lovely Crowley family (pictured) who have now begun their
parkrun journey. We hope you enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing all of the first timers again
very soon!
A remarkable 76 of you (that’s 1 in 5 participants!) achieved new personal bests and we had
representatives from 27 different clubs attend this week. Well done everyone.
There were a lot of milestones to mention this week which was very exciting but also meant lots of
sweet treats and cake were shared around! Starting with the juniors, both Callum LEES and Cameron
SMITH-WOOD completed their 10 th parkrun today with Callum securing a new PB of 19:25. Great
achievement both of you.
Joining the 50th parkrun milestone this week was George CARLEY who was also a first timer for this
course. Alongside him, Samuel JEPSON-RIVERS and Eloisa SMITH also celebrated 50 runs and are
pictured upon completing the course. Well done to all of you, onwards and upwards.
Lorraine VINCE celebrated her 100th parkrun this week in a time of 37:00, well done! Lorraine is
pictured with friends.
Finally, a very special mention to a new arrival! Regular parkrunners and volunteers Martin
and Kirsty Carter welcomed the latest addition to their family last week. Mason Lewis Carter was
born on Sunday 12th May and no doubt we will be seeing them at the course in the coming weeks.
Congratulations all of you!

Just a reminder that Belton House parkrun is not on next Saturday 25th May so enjoy some touring!

We will see you again on the 1st June where, as per the report last week, we will be celebrating the
first anniversary of the parkrun practice initiative. This was launched by parkrun and the Royal
College of General Practitioners in June last year and the two organisations have teamed up to hold
a national GP parkrun pledge day. The aim is to get as many general practice staff as possible to
pledge in advance, to join thousands of walkers, runners and volunteers at parkrun events across the
UK on the same day.
Our certified parkrun practises are Sleaford Medical Group and Colsterworth Medical Practise but
employees of all GP practices are very much welcomed, whether you run, walk, jog or volunteer. We
would love to see as many of you as possible at Belton parkrun on the 01st June and hope to see the
pledge signed by many.
