Well done to all 388 of you who got out of bed put your trainers on and ran, walked and jogged Belton House parkrun! and the bonus for the volunteers was, it was a beautiful day.

Well done all! 38 tourists visited including runners from the Sweatshop Running Community, Beeston AC, Team Anstey, Vegan runners, Hardley Runners and Skegness and District runners Club, 36 recorded new Personal Bests and representatives of 23 different clubs took part.

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!

We had parkrunners touring from Sheffield and all the way from Munich. We met a great crew from the core volunteer group of Market Harborough parkrun, who helped to clear down the course along with our regular high viz heroes. Thank you guys.
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.
