This week tourists Stephanie RUEFF and Richard BARCLAY joined us from the running club Tailenders, Oxford
Tailenders is a running club for bellringers. An increasing number of ringers have been inspired by parkrun to take up middle-distance running, including many who would not previously have imagined they could run 5 kilometrers! Fantastic, well done Tailenders. We loved the Tshirts and the salute, hope to see you again soon.

Important message
Please remember Belton House National Trust host parkrun. Belton House do not open until 09:30 and bring in a very small number of staff to facilitate parkrun. Toilets open approximately 08:30 and we kindly ask you to remember to please take a tinkle before leaving the house!
All volunteers regardless of whether parkrun or National Trust should not be shouted at if facilities have not yet opened, all volunteers regardless of being parkrun or National Trust should be shown respect and kindness, this also goes for other parkland users, we share the parkland we do not own the parkland.

That's all for now folks, don't forget there is no parkrun this Saturday 10th August and we return on the 17th August.
See you all next parkrunday

20190720-DSC_0454
We had a great week with 365 people running, jogging and walking the course. 43 were first timers and we have to wonder whether the terrific BBC documentary Kelly Holmes – The Power of Parkrun (yes, we know ‘parkrun’ is lower case – blame the Beeb!) broadcast on Monday 16th July as part of the Our Lives season encouraged more of you to come and experience it for yourselves? For whatever reason you came along, thank you!
20190720-DSC_9766
As always, a massive debt of gratitude is owed to our fabulous volunteers, our hi-viz heroes, without whom, we couldn’t do this. If you’d like to volunteer, we’d be delighted – full training is given and there are even roles that allow you to get your credit and still run too! Please contact us on Belton House parkrun Facebook page or Messenger, or email parkrun@beltonhouse.com

The event was made possible by 32 volunteers:
Brendon BUCKLEY, Casper CARLEY, David CROMBIE, Mary CROSS, Anne-Marie DAVISON, Frances DUFFREE, Paul DUFFREE, David ELDRIDGE, Suzanne ELLIOTT, Claire FRITZ, Claire GRANT, Harry HULSE, Claire LANE, Sam LEWSEY, Abigail LEWSEY, Fraser MARSHALL, Olivia MARSHALL, Jo PARKES, Shaun PARKES, Matt RANDS, Thomas RICE, Mark RICE, Mollie RICE, Martin RODELL, Rori RODELL, Andrew SELBY, George SELBY, Andrew SELBY, Claire SELBY, John SOUTHERN, Elaine WORSTER, Roger WORSTER

60 of you achieved new personal bests, which is fabulous! Do make sure that you ring the PB bell which is kept on the table next to the green hut at the finish line, and let everyone know your achievement!

We had lots of clubs touring and gaining a 'B' in the parkrun alphabet including, Christian Vision for Men, Fernwood running club, Rushcliffe AC, Lymm Runners and Coventry Pearl Hyde A.C. Thanks for coming, and we look forward to seeing you all again.

We had two people join the 50th milestone club this week Lizzie BANKS and Peter YELLUP.
Two juniors this week competed their 10th ,milestone Oscar GUILD and Liam LOWES
Well done evryone and we look forward to seeing you in your 50th Tshirts, which by the way are back! :-)

I was run director this week (Fraser Marshall),having shadowed Gordon Geach the previous week, this week I did it solo, which is good practice for when I becomes one of the RDs at Wyndham junior parkrun, watch this space for more info – Wyndham junior parkrun Event Directors Kate Marshall and Edina Burns will update us as soon as there’s definitive news).

“The one thing you learn the first time you RD alone, is how much you don’t know, and how much there is to keep in your head at all times. Nothing terrible happened, it’s just lots of little things you think, ‘Oh, I should have done *that* first, then *that*!’ or suddenly thinking ‘How do you actually turn the walkie-talkies on – normally they’re just handed to you already on…’ I doubt any of the runners noticed anything much, but I did. It’s obviously a case of being something that will get smoother with more practice.
“Doing the briefings was fine and the run itself went well because the team knows what it’s doing and many of our volunteers are very experienced, but doing the results is quite nerve racking as there’s so many people waiting expectantly for their times and so much that can go wrong!

“We did have a couple of things happen that made processing the results a bit more challenging, one relating to tokens, another to someone going through the funnel twice, (known as funnel ducking!) so being clicked twice on the stopwatches, plus the usual issues with barcodes not scanning etc. Fortunately, a couple of visiting RDs from Newark, Claire and Adam Grant were on hand to help figure out what to do, so we got them done in reasonable time, and I never got too concerned!

“All in all, it was good fun, and I’ll look forward to doing it again soon!”
Thank you for joining us at parkrun. parkrun is for everyone, regardless of age or ability. You can run, jog or walk, and you’ll never come last because that’s someone’s actual job! So if you haven’t made it yet, come down and discover why parkrun changes people’s lives for the better. We look forward to meeting you very soon!
Thanks Fraser, we are thrilled you 'enjoyed' it and we think you rocked being RD :-)

The Grantham Running Club takeover provided a perfect opportunity for me to take the mantle of Run Director, this was great training readying me for the start-up of junior parkrun which will take place in Wyndham Park this autumn. With regular park run attendee & fellow Run Director Andrew Pask assisting me, the event went relatively smoothly, with only the weather choosing to not play ball. Rain however was not going to stop the 44 volunteers, who were mostly members of GRC from ensuring that the event was a great success, with people commenting on how much they enjoyed having pacers to assist them in trying to obtain their PB’s and that the marshals were a great encouragement. I would like to take this opportunity to thanks everyone for their help and patience in assisting me to be Run Director this week and a huge thank you to the GRC members who volunteered and also brought some wonderful cake for us to enjoy afterwards! I look forward to seeing you more at future parkrun events.

Parkrun fun in the sun! and this little lady was certainly enjoying herself and she had not forgotten her barcode :-)
We didn't need the arc! Maybe some armbands for effect... but thankfully Belton House parkrun delivered a soggy free run, walk or jog, without the need for flotation devices, for a grand total of 437 of you this week :-) Awesome!

Talking of our high-viz heroes, they were again absolutely brilliant in their varied undertakings. There was some lovely feedback from you spritely lot, about the enthusiastic and supportive marshals out on the course - it is a fantastic community, as this feedback shows; runners and volunteers supporting and appreciating each other alike.

Some may have described it more like dancing in the rain opposed to running, walking or jogging with the rain coming down and the kids enjoying a good splash in the puddles and 299 of you didn't disagree, after looking through Shaun's (regular photographer) photo album everyone was beaming even if wet through!
Well done to all who walked, ran, jogged and danced in the rain
There where also 26 volunteers who enabled parkrun to take place, we think you are all superstars past present and future volunteers but this week is parkrun UK volunteer week so a special shout out to all of you that support parkrun as you all know it couldn't happen without you. We do say parkrun is powered by cake but more so powered by volunteers!!
This week I took a slow plod round taking photo's and chatting to the volunteers and parkrunners, some I knew some I didn't but all where happy to chat and answer two particular questions
1, why do you parkrun and 2, why do you volunteer?
The answers to both where mostly because of the sense of well being completing parkrun and the community feel, the physical and mental health aspect was also raised. We even had two parkrunners that had been prescribed parkrun and come along to last weeks GP event and returned on Saturday. This is excellent to hear :-)

It was lovely to hear that all thought we where a most friendly parkrun, and that should be recognised as it is the parkeunners and volunteers that create that wonderful atmosphere.
Lots of volunteers said they felt they should give back and help as they are regular runners, some having a regime where they run 4 and volunteer 1 and lots of other variation and some of our volunteers only volunteer! We have a couple of people who do this David Crombie who is a regular timekeeper and always there ready to count everyone in and Elaine Worster who is normally on marshal point 1 as you go down the drive and turn left, however this week Elaine was on the last marshal point by the house, the reason for this is Elaine had had an operation on her foot but still turned out to volunteer the following day! Thank you Elaine and David you are both the best and we always look forward to Elaine's cowbells and cheering as we go round and Davids cheeky smile as you go through the funnel :) A couple of other mentions are Gordon Geach, Event Director and regular Run Director, Clare Lane and Richard Hall roster co-coordinators.
All three giving up many hours of their week, every week since Belton House parkrun started (November 2015) to ensure the event goes smoothly every week. Thank you all.
I would love to mention each and every volunteer but we maybe here all night! the next photo is of Simon Hartley who has been doing some volunteering due to injury recently and Dona Hall showing off the purple volunteer Tee shirt and so she should, Dona is another one of regular supporters and an ambassador for for certified parkrun practise scheme.

Today 415 of us came together to celebrate parkrun pledge day on the 1st birthday of the ground breaking health initiative that is parkrun practice. This partnership launched by the Royal College of General Practitioners encourages GPs across the UK to link with their local parkruns to raise awareness of the health and social benefits of an active lifestyle, and to ‘prescribe’ physical activity as an alternative to medication. Not only is regular exercise good for keeping fit but it can contribute to reducing blood pressure, managing our weight and even reduce diabetes. You even get a workout when volunteering – tail walkers get to do the whole 5k and the marshals enjoy a fabulous walk to their marshalling points and then get to exercise their lungs with all that cheering! parkrun is also great for mental wellbeing, just being involved makes you feel part of the community.

The parkrun pledge asked for 1,000 GPs and their staff to sign up to attend parkruns across the UK today. The target was smashed with nearly 2,000 attending nationally. We were delighted to welcome GPs and staff from some of our local parkrun practices: Sleaford Medical Group, Colstwerworth Medical Practice and Caythorpe & Ancaster Medical Practice pictured below. Thank you for attending it was great to see you and keep prescribing parkrun!
For any GPs reading this who would be interested in becoming a parkrun practice there is a link on the RCGPs website.
