Event Number 174 – 05th October 2019

Belton House Parkrun
Event number 174
5th October 2019


The 174rd Belton parkrun was a very special day as it was parkrun’s 15th birthday. Fifteen years in which it has changed from being an exclusive event enjoyed by a small number of athletes, to an institution making a real difference to people from all walks of life from around the world! Every year, as more and more people realise that parkrun is for them, the average times get slower and slower and the number of people whose lives are transformed get bigger and bigger. So, a massive Happy Birthday to the wonderful phenomenon which is parkrun!

344 of us celebrated parkrun’s birthday by walking, jogging or running around the grounds of Belton House which were beautiful on this fine autumn morning with a fine dew catching the golden light and even a balloon taking off over the park as we puffed and panted our way around. For 13 people it was their first ever parkrun; I wonder how many of them will still be joining us at parkruns in 15 years’ time? For another 34 people it was their first trip to Belton parkrun; I hope that they were impressed as we are very proud of our home parkrun and want visitors to take good memories away with them.

An incredible 74 (SEVENTY FOUR!) people celebrated parkrun’s birthday by achieving a new PB; a massive well done to them. One of those achieving a PB was Nathan Martin who now has the right to wear a white t-shirt as today was also his tenth parkrun. Well done Nathan. Congratulations are also due to the three people who earned their black 100 t-shirts; they are Barbara Smith, Harry Ratcliffe and Matthew Ratcliffe. Harry and Matthew also decided to mark the occasion by volunteering as tail walkers.

Talking of volunteering, as usual there were a dedicated band of Hi-Viz heroes making sure that all of this could happen. This week massive thanks are due to P ABEY, Jayne BAVIN, Maria CARLEY, Alan CARLEY, David CROMBIE, Lesley DIX, Travis FEATHERSTONE, Ruth FEATHERSTONE, Harry HULSE, Ellis JACKSON, Grace JOHNSTON, Laura KETTLE, Claire LANE, Russell MAKSYMIW, Grace MARSHALL, Olivia MARSHALL, Kate MARSHALL, Fraser MARSHALL, Emily RATCLIFFE, Matthew RATCLIFFE, Harry RATCLIFFE, Amelia SHAW, Harry WAKERLEY, Jane WINTER, Roger WORSTER and Elaine WORSTER. We really couldn’t run this wonderful event without your support and are incredibly grateful for everything that you do.

Today’s highest age grading went to Jonathon Roberts with a creditable 86.21%. The first finisher was William Parkin who came home in a very nifty 16:29 which was also a new PB for him. First female finisher was Becky Roberts with a time of 18:27. Well done to all of you; what a fabulous way to celebrate parkrun’s 15th birthday celebrations.

There have now been 174 parkruns at Belton since it started on the 7th November 2015. The female record is held by Naomi Collier who recorded a time of 18:14 on 24th December 2016 (event number 51).

Event Number 173 – 28th September 2019

Belton House Parkrun
Event number 173
28th September 2019

The 173rd Belton parkrun was a sunny, slightly blustery day and perfect for running, jogging or walking the course at Belton house; no wonder 315 of us turned up to enjoy the autumn sunshine. We would like to say a big welcome to the 26 of you for whom this was your first ever visit to Belton Parkrun, especially if you were one of the 16 for whom it was your first parkrun ever. Well done, we hope that you come back soon. 42 parkrunners today achieved new personal bests, what a lovely way to start your weekend, congratulations.
Congratulations are also heartily deserved by Becky Rice who not only ran her 50th parkrun today but also got a new PB. She also wore a beautiful new t-shirt just to make sure that we all knew that she had got something to celebrate.

Belton House parkrun #173

Lorna Fox was also celebrating today as she ran her hundredth parkrun; what a fantastic achievement. Also celebrating was Alex McConnell, one of our junior parkrunners who today ran his 10th parkrun. Well done to the three of you, we hope that you all enjoyed the rest of the day.

Belton House parkrun #173

As we know, none of this would be possible without the amazing Hi-Viz heroes, thank you so much to each and every one of you, as without your hard work none of this would be possible. Today’s volunteers were P ABEY, Yvonne BUCKLEY, Edina BURNS, Amanda COWLING, Kyle COWLING, Paul DAVIS, Sam DODWELL, Stephanie DUNCAN, Gordon GEACH, Corin Megan Alice PROCTER, Rosalind SADLER, Amelia SHAW, ne GRAYSTON, Richard HALL, Harry HULSE, Ellis JACKSON, Michelle PARCZUK, Steve SKEATES, Harry WAKERLEY, Jane WINTER, Elaine WORSTER, Roger WORSTER, Kate YATES.
Today I was trying out a new volunteering role and got to put on the tail-walker vest. One of the things that I was looking forward to doing was properly thanking some of the marshals because usually I am too puffed to do more than give them a thumbs up as I whiz plod past. At the first post there was a very familiar face who gives us a cheery wave from that position nearly every week. Today I stopped long enough to find out that it was Elaine Worster, a name that I am already familiar with from seeing it on the volunteer roster. I also found out that she was extra proud this week as she is Becky Rice’s mum (who I mentioned earlier, running her 50th today). It was Elaine's 70th volunteering occasion today as well.

Elaine

I was also delighted to make the acquaintance of Ros Sadler, who had brought a friend along to shake tambourines at us all as we went past. Isn’t that a lovely thing to do?

Ros

I was then able to put a face to another name who I recognised from the volunteer page. Paul Davis was there with his dog Amber, and is currently taking a break from running while his knees recover. I think that Amber would rather have been running!

Paul

By the time I had stopped to talk to everyone I had to run for a bit to catch up with the last people, fortunately they were easy to spot due two of the youngsters in the group wearing their white 10 t-shirts. However, a little while after I caught up with them you can imagine my surprise when I realised that I had accidentally run past a pair of parkrunners who I had not realised had been overtaken by the family I was chasing; oh dear, that was definitely a tail-walker fail! Fortunately, things got a lot easier on the second lap as once the faster runners were out of the way it was possible to see where everybody was and I managed to behave like a proper tail-walker. Sadly, when I got to the end I realised that, because I was not wearing my usual parkrun clothes I had forgotten my barcode; what a clot, everyone knows that the first rule of parkrun is that you always bring your barcode!

What a good job Greg Southern didn’t forget his barcode as today he was first finisher with a time of 18:02 and an age graded score of 82:44%, which was today’s highest age graded score. First female home was Sue Morris with a time of 20:48.
There have now been 173 parkruns at Belton since it started on the 7th November 2015. The female record is held by Naomi Collier who recorded a time of 18:14 on 24th December 2016 (event number 51). The male record is held by Thomas Trimble who ran the course in a time of 14:54 on 16th February 2019 (event number 148). The Age Grade course record is held by Barbara Eveling who recorded 94.24% (25:44) on 21st April 2018 (event number 110). Since it started 8174 participants have completed 47,271 parkruns covering a total distance of 236,355 km, including 10,257 new Personal Bests.

Summer is still here and 389 of you enjoyed a walk, jog or run in the stunning parkland of Belton House and basked (a'hem got a bit sweaty) in the sunshine! While 31 volunteers did actually bask in the sunshine and ensured another smooth running event :-)
20190921-DSC_9377
Its a proven fact by seeing all those smiley faces on a Saturday morning and backed up by Shaun Parkes photo's (our regular resident photographer) how much you all enjoy your Saturday mornings, regardless of whether you are volunteering, running, walking, jogging or supporting you can feel the good vibes in the air as a community comes together supporting each other regardless of age, ability, speed or pace.
Big round of applause to all and lets celebrate the diversity of parkrun and all the good things it brings, sociability, community, friends, family, first aid for mental health and fitness.

Event 172 21Sep19
This weekend we where expecting more tourists than normal due to a 'little' event called Equinox 24 held at Belviour Castle, and we where not disappointed, we had 62 first timers to Belton House.

Big shout out to those becoming part of a milestone club, this includes Gina Woodward joining the 50th Club and Adam WASIOŁKA joining the 100th milestone Club.(Pictured above with his girlfriend Kamilla, also a keen runner) Congratulations on your achievements and looking forward to seeing you in your T-shirts and here's to the next milestone.

While looking at the results this week I noticed junior James JENKINSON running for the first time at the age of 10,and Helena CLARK (VW75-79) taking part for the first time at Belton House but has completed 12 parkruns. This just further shows the diversity of parkrun and absolutely anyone can do it, so if you are reading this and have any doubt, then but those doubts in the bin and come and get involved :-)

Event Number 171 – 14th September 2019

Belton House parkrun
Event Number 171
14th September 2019

What a lot of parkrun achievements there were on this glorious sunny day. There were a truly amazing 90 new PB’s. Just think about it, ninety people ran, jogged or walked around the Belton course faster than they have ever run, jogged or walked around it before; well done to them! Another amazing achievement was the 13 people who have never run a parkrun before and turned up for the very first time, we all remember how intimidating that first parkrun can be so hats off to them too! I hope that they enjoyed it and will be back again soon. We also welcomed 27 tourists making their first ever trip to Belton.
Another amazing achievement was the fact that a massive event involving 403 people walking, jogging and running around Belton was organised entirely by volunteers.
So thank you to P ABEY, Rebecca ANGEL, Brendon BUCKLEY, Yvonne BUCKLEY, Edina BURNS, Kyle COWLING, David CROMBIE, Paul DAVIS, Mark EDWARDS, David ELDRIDGE, Stephen FAY, Claire FRITZ, Gordon GEACH, Corinne GRAYSTON, Richard HALL, Harry HULSE, Jim MILLAR, Erin PASK, Freya PASK, Sara PASK, Mollie RICE, Becky RICE, Thomas RICE, Phil ROBERTS, Amelia SHAW, Jamie SHAW, Dale TOWNING, Harry WAKERLEY and Jane WINTER.
If you haven’t volunteered yet I can assure you will be given all of the help that you need to do what you need to and it gives you a completely different perspective on parkrun. Remember, without the volunteers parkrun couldn’t happen, so do consider doing your bit.

Talking of achievements, this week two more people joined the 50 club and will soon be sporting their fetching new T-shirts. They were Angela Harrison and Trevor Hammond(pictured above). Trevor also capped of his 50th with a new PB; a very creditable 23:41. Oliver Carrington is no doubt feeling very pleased with himself as he celebrated his first visit to Belton by being first finisher with a time of 16:26. This wasn’t Naomi Collier’s first visit as she already has the accolade of being the female record holder for Belton house. This week she didn’t quite equal her record breaking speed, but was nevertheless first female over the line with a time of 18:38.
All of these amazing achievement have got me thinking about all of my own parkrun achievements, and trying to decide which of them I am proudest of. Was it screwing up the courage to turn up for my first visit? Or maybe my fastest PB (which I have never been able to equal in the nearly two years since I set it). Or maybe some of my volunteering roles, all of which I have enjoyed very much indeed? On balance, however, I do not think that it is any of these things. Rather, I think that the thing that I am proudest of is introducing a member of my extended family to parkrun. From the moment I bullied persuaded them to come to their first run in March I have seen them set a series of faster and faster times, lose almost two stone in weight and become much fitter in general as they have made the most of the inspiration that parkrun provides. I would love to hear about which parkrun achievement you are proudest of.
There have now been 171 parkruns at Belton since it started on the 7th November 2015. The female record is held by Naomi Collier who recorded a time of 18:14 on 24th December 2016 (event number 51).

Since it started 8058 participants have completed 46,478 parkruns covering a total distance of 232,390 km, including 10.094 new Personal Bests.

We had a bumper week this week with 401 people running, jogging and walking the course. 62 were running at Belton for the first time and we look forward to seeing you again soon. 73 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. This means that of the entire field, a third were either running parkrun for the first time ever or achieving their best-ever time! Well done everyone!

Meanwhile, 10-year-old Oliver Atter was awarded his first milestone t-shirt for completing 10 parkruns – here’s to the next 10, Oliver!
Kate Marshall was the Run Director for the second week in a row. She updated runners that fundraising to commence a junior parkrun event for Grantham’s Wyndham Park has been successful, a team of Run Directors has been recruited and a group of volunteers are working hard behind the scenes on the start-up process. The Run Director team have been gaining lots of experience in volunteer roles at Belton and we hope to have the event up and running later in the year.

Belton House Parkun
Event number 168
24th August 2019

Phew; what a scorcher! Nevertheless, undeterred by the heat 410 people turned up to run, jog and walk around Belton for this week’s parkrun. For 65 of them this was their first visit to Belton Parkrun, and runners from an incredible 31 different running clubs came to the event. You would imagine that, given the sweltering conditions everyone would be taking it easy, but not so, as an amazing 59 people achieved a new PB! The first runner home this week was Philip Brook who came in with a new PB of 16:52. The first woman back was Megan Rowlands who was making her first visit to Belton and achieved a time of 22:19.

Several people achieved their milestones this week. First up is a double celebration as Susan Copping ran her 50th parkrun, while her son Jack Andrews ran his 10th; I bet there were great celebrations in their house! Rory Blackburn also reached his 50th milestone and three other youngsters achieved 10, these were Hannah Whitaker, Harriet Jackson and Luke Saunders. This week’s other milestone was Kathleen Jepson who has now run an amazing 100 parkruns (and who also found time to volunteer this week). A massive well done to all of you; we look forward to seeing you in your new t-shirts soon.

Another important milestone for 28 participants this week was their first parkrun ever. I vividly remember my first parkrun just over two years ago, feeling nervous and self-conscious and fully intending to walk some of the way around the course. In the event I didn’t feel that I could stop and walk as I ended up running around with a four-year-old and her dad. I felt that if she could run without stopping I should too; I went home and slept all afternoon and could barely walk on Sunday! I am so glad that I did not let this put me off. I have made so many friends through parkrun, and it also gave me the confidence to join a local running club. I sincerely hope that today’s first timers have also been bitten by the bug and get as much out of parkrun as I have; welcome to the parkrun family.

Kath Jepson, celebrated her 100th parkrun today.

You might wonder what all this practising is about, well it's the Wyndham junior parkrun team getting in some practice before it launches, sometime in the future. Yes all the funding is in place and the cogs are turning. Kate and Edina are the CO-ED's (Event Directors) and Sara amongst other are on the core team. Most of the core team will be at Belton House on the 7th Sept for some training(lovely things like how to cope with funnel duckers, dropped tokens to name a couple)/information from Richard Ruston-Litchfield (Belton House and Wyndham junior Ambassador) and yours truly Gordon Geach. A big thank-you once again to the National Trust for providing us with an office and data TV for the training.

Have a lovely weekend and week till next Saturday.

3 of you joined the 50th milestone club, Fran HANSFORD, Jane Winter and Mandy DALLORZO.
I couldn't find a photo of Mandy but that's maybe as she wasn't wearing one of many of her onsies that Mandy is famously known for!
Jane rocked up with homemade biscuits, which I can confirm where delishious, thanks Jane.
Looking forward to seeing you all in your milestone tshirts, which are now available again. I did see a few new ones being worn on Saturday :-)

We had tourists from Rayleigh RAT Runners,Manx Harriers, Harvel Hash House Harriers, Portishead Running Club, City of Salisbury A & RC and Defence Sports & Recreation. Thanks for coming, we hope you enjoyed the course and see you return again.

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
