The lost run reports #23 aka parkrun #7

Please don`t despair,it isn`t all bad news

If you go for a run to New Brighton,there are fantastic views

I am fully stocked with baked beans and the odd Jaffa cake

So being socially distant I don`t have to fake

We will run,jog or walk together again soon

Probably without the famously moustachioed David Boon

Be patient,wash your hands,wear your masks and look after yourselves

It`ll be Christmas soon,I need to find some elves

We could put them by the funnel

We`d need an Olympian in charge of them?

Seb Coe? Geoff Capes? Oh no! Definitely Sally Gunnell.


This week`s historical run report is the last one from August 2015.It was a roasting hot morning in Birkenhead and we had 214 of you lovely people taking part.

Oh.while I remember. Apparently some parkruns are taking this #notparkrun thing very seriously and there is a league table of participants. I just wanted to stress that 1,we are not taking it seriously at all and 2, Although our position is around mid table league 1 we are not in danger of relegation.Or for none football fans,we`ve got 14 points after 12 rounds of Eurovision song contest voting with 7 countries below us. Or for non Eurovision get the message.


Our first finisher (male) this week was Alex McBain of Wirral AC, a first timer who ran 16:24! Next was the first appearance of our most achieved first place person,Phil Langan of Wirral AC who ran 16:42 and to complete a first timer first three,Connor McArdle of West End Runners, ran 16:45! Wonder if he works in a pet shop?

Our first finisher (female) was Emily Kearney,another first timer,again from Wirral AC (There`s a pattern developing here) in 18:08(6th)! Followed by Sarah Kearney of Wirral AC and a first timer in 18:23(7th) and Hannah Durrant of Wirral AC and yes, a first timer who ran 20:46(30th). A first timer sweep of both top 3`s!


Today`s historical time and date is 16:24/1624 or time to go home as I like to say Monday to Friday.The 1st submarine was publicly tested on the Thames in London for King James 1, there was lots of seizing and conquering of places going on around the world but on a more conciliatory note, King Bethlen Gabor and Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand 2 signed the treaty of Vienna,then went out for a curry,a few pints and an anim


A big woohoo and lots of congratulations to all our first timers on the day,we hope you enjoyed your Birkenhead parkrun experience,whether it was your first parkrun evs or you were visiting us to find out what all the fuss was about our wonderful park.We hope you`ve been back loads since,

The lost run reports #22 aka parkrun #5

Another lovely day in the Birkenhead tropics

On this August day

The squirrels were still wondering just who we were

But were fairly happy and out to play

Just over 200 of you on our 5th parkrun

Stu`s shorts legend was in its infancy

(Cue 10 minutes gap while I think of a rhyme for infancy)


Stu`s shorts legend had just taken its first step

And there was no sign in the finish funnel

Of Johnny Depp.


Hello and welcome to the latest historical run report ,this week number 5,our fifth ever parkrun from August 15th 2018.It was August,it was a lovely day and 203 of you took part.


Our first finisher(male) was Joe Boden of Wallasey AC with a new pb of 16:59,just ahead of Mark Hulmston,also with a pb of 17:07 and Richard Davies of Wirral AC,again with a pb, this one was 17:14! Congratulations from the future to all of them!

Our first finisher(female) was Sarah Roberts of Ellesmere Port RC, a first timer with us who ran 18:12 (8th). Then it was Krystina Martindale of Wirral AC,also a first timer. Krystina ran 20:01 (19th) and Katie Bagley in 21:10 (34th)


Today`s historical time and date was 18:12,or just coming up to a quarter past 6. The 1812 overture wasn`t written in 1812.It was written in 1880 and Tchaikovsky didn`t like it. The first Spanish constitution was enacted and Canadian war heroine Laura Secord walked 32km to warn British troops of a surprise American attack at the Battle of Beaver Dams. There is no record of her Garmin time or if she put it on Strava (other watch options probably weren`t available at the time)

The lost run reports #21 aka parkrun #4

It was the very early days of Birkenhead parkrun

When T`pau were still only 1980`s powerpopsters

And not James Hurley`s middle name

Oh that nickname will always remain

No pink wellies had been worn on our grass finish funnel

And I`d not even thought to mention Sally Gunnell

Stu`s shorts were still just an item of functional summer sportswear

It was a Shenton of a date,the 8th of the 8th,back in 2015

It seems so long ago but it wasn`t a dream.


Hello and welcome to the second series(!) of historical run reports.

Previously on historical run reports - Er,there were historical run reports covering parkrun 48-67.Anyway this time,its parkrun numbers 4,5,7,13,14,45 and 46! I know, calm yourselves with a biscuit.

After the last report was in freezing November,we were warm as a central heating convention on this August day,176 of you joined us and the narrow grass finish funnel was in place.


Our first finisher (male) was Andrew Gawne in a time of 17:04,followed by first timers Ashley Crawford in 17:13 and David Brockway of Wirral AC in 17:32.

Current Leicester City and England footballer James Maddison was in 4th.Or it was James from Victoria Park Harriers and Tower Hamlets AC,one of them.

Our first finisher (female) was first timer Maggie Cooper of Wirral AC in 20:02 (16th),then Katie Bagley with a pb of 20:53 (27th) and Caroline Hall of Wirral AC in 21:35 (38th).


Today`s random historical date was 20:02,or slightly after 8. The world cup was held in South Korea and Japan,Mount Nyiragongo Volcano erupted in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Switzerland joined the United Nations for an undisclosed fee.


Congratulations to all our first timers,indeed everyone who was there that day as everyone was still very new to it all. We hope you enjoyed your very first parkrun with us,whether it was your first ever parkrun or you were visiting us for the first time.

Our amazing first timers were James Da Costa,Helen Sweeney,Paul Howarth,Dan Lodge,Andy Bush,Alex Cowen,Beth Hallsworth,Matthew Cowen,Charlie Cockram, Christopher Green,Rachel Doyle,Catherine McNee,Jennifer Davies,Debra Gallivan, Teoman Forshaw,Sarah Briscoe,Andy Stewart,Duncan Redpath,Claire Marsden, Samuel Forshaw,Rukiye Forshaw,Richard Bargh,Roy Morris,Helen Simpson,Amy Chalmers,Freya Brabrook,Paul Cunningham,Sara Morris,Steve Cowen,James Maddison,Sue Rimmer,Rachel Salem,Emily Jacques,Paula Cowen,Michele Alty, Carol Bannon,Michael Stone,Keith Brand,Ethan Brady-Jones,Raul Mur,Sean Dyer,Caitlin Chapman,Jo-Anne Harrison,Kayleigh Salem,Paul Collins,Lornsa Quigley,Louise Marsden,James Chapman,Joseph Chalmers,Maggie Cooper,Russell Jacques,Keith Wood,David Nalder,Claire M Williams,Ian Reid,Kevin Charleston,Michael Brockway, Andrea Brabrook,Daniel Kelly,David Brockway,Robin Kingsbury,Paul Chapman,Ashley Crawford.

The Brian Shenton “Shenton” Database


So here it is. You didn`t ask for it and I know some people will be thinking what? why? how? really? Woof? (Thanks Marvin!) All the Shentons in one place.Worked on it along with the historical run reports which I hope you`ve enjoyed.

First though,a few words from the man himself!

"A few years ago,after parkrun, I was chatting about an alternative to chasing elusive PB`s. The time of 23:45 came to mind,followed by 23:23 ,then I was told about the Fibonacci sequence so 23:58 came into play. I tried to run these times but they proved as elusive as a pb!

Chatting about these times on a dm group on twitter,others threw their respective times into the pot,28:28,30:30 etc. Somebody in the group gave them the title of a "Shenton", Then to my surprise Jon unleashed the term into the parkrun run reports. "Shentons" can apply to any race,distance or training run although they`re yet to be ratified by the UKA. My all time favourite  was run by a #teamgreen friend,Alison....a 50 mile ultra in a time of 11:11:11! The recent 5k record of 12:35 was so close to a "Shenton",he`ll just have to go out and try again!

Cheers and enjoying your running.

Brian err what`s my name?"


Thanks Brian!

A few facts for you - Our first Shenton was Al Currie with his 20:20 at our first ever parkrun and Jackie Harwood with a 34:34,ran our most up to date one at our last parkrun.

The most Shentons and surely worthy of a place in the inevitable Shenton Hall of Fame, take a bow Nick Laing with 7 just ahead of Stephen Lllewellyn and Mark Wilmshurst on 6 with Brian Seal and Alex Holland on 5.The Shenton of Shenton,Brian has 3.

Helen Stansfield  and Carola Robinson have 3 Shentons.

Beckie Waterton has the biggest gap between Shentons,running them at parkrun 2 and 235.

If you've spread your Shentons over several different times, you can have a look below,count them up and let me know if you've got multiple ones.I`ll add you to this bit.

On the core team volunteer front,Mike Green leads the way with 3 ,not very closely followed by Stu Rickers,Gemma Cloney and Jon Rumley with 1.None for Steve,James, Ultan,Ruth,John or Steve.

Unfortunately,no dog Shentons have been counted.Sorry woofs.

The lost run reports #20 aka run report #68

I`ve never been a lyrical gangster

And my flow has never been busted

However I do like the odd egg custard

Hang on,that`s off to a bad start

You can if you want call it a custard tart

Oh this isn`t the cake report,this is in the wrong place

Time for a u turn to save face

Parkrun,sorry parkrun 68,the weather was getting colder

But we had 223 runners,none from Colorado,specifically Boulder.

We only had 16 volunteers though,a very low total

That`s a statistical fact,not anecdotal

When we are back,we`ll need a lot lot more

Have a think about that,the chance to don the hi vis

Its easy,we`re very friendly

And you might get to meet Stephen Hendry*


*Can`t be guaranteed but seriously we will need more volunteers in the Sally Gunnell finish funnel especially.As for the the availability of Scottish snooker players,we`ll try.


Hello and welcome to this week`s run report from the past. Next week we`ll be going even farther back into the past but for now or even then this report covers Saturday November 12th 2016.A cold frosty morning with everyone layered up.


Our first finisher (male) was again Andy McQue of Stoke AC who was 13 seconds quicker than last week, running a time of 16:48. Then it was Andrew Patterson in 17:12 and Richard Webster of Wallasey AC in 18:30.

Our first finisher (female) was Hanna Tarver of Wirral AC ,a first timer,in 18:58 (6th), then Emily Gray of Liverpool Harriers in 19:09(8th) and Zoe Pearse of Wallasey AC with a new pb of 20:28! (24th)


Today`s random historical date was 17:12,or just coming up to quarter past 5.It was all going off in Sweden on Feb 29th when they decided to have a Feb 30th in a move to abolish the Swedish calendar for a return to the old style....No,me neither. Also,in May Maximilian Emanuel of Bavaria successfully applied for and was honoured as the "Sovereign of Netherlands".

Don`t get that type of knowledge at Bushy.


Congratulations to all our first timers who joined us on this day in history. We hope you enjoyed your first ever parkrun or your first ever visit to our lovely parkrun and have been back many times since,

Our fantastic first timers were Hanna Tarver,Rachel Corless,Edward Reid,Ben Edwards,Ryan Davies,Tarla Schiller,Amne Tyson,Millie Elliott-Brown,Sarah Brunsdon, Ben Harper,Nikki Hodge,Paul Gray,Alan Todd,Byron Parish,Miriam Collister,Colette O`Halloren,Warren McNally,Louis Atkinson,Joanne Edwards,Paul Musgrove,Charles Tatham,Nicola Cracknell,Wendy Spice.

We`ll have a ball.

The lost run reports #18 aka parkrun #66

We`re almost in November in our time travelling run report tour

More warmer coats,scarfs and thermal baselayers to the fore

But for one volunteer legend the time to cover his legs will never arrive

I know that,I don`t need to surmise

His legs have been noted in space by Nasa

But not on the TV cricket by Nasser.

Which is a surprise when there`s a lack of wickets

As my phone autocorrect changes his name to tickets.

With hundreds of parkrunners and some mad volunteers he can cope

But he`d love to see,in the finish funnel, the one and only Pope*

He`s never been mentioned in song by Bono,the Edge and the others from U2

He`s our very own #shortsforstu


*The Port Vale one,not the fella who lives in the Vatican city.


Hello and welcome to this week`s historical run report. We`ve reached Saturday 29th October 2016 when it was more than likely a bit cold.


Our first finisher(male) this week was Louis Gorman of West Cheshire AC in 18:23 ,then Richard Webster of Wallasey AC in 18:49 and Thomas Carroll who ran a pb of 19:03!

Our first finisher (female) was Emily Gray of Liverpool Harriers & AC, a first timer who ran 19:38(4th),then Helen Newman who ran a pb of 20:57 (19th) and first timers Lauren Watchorn in 20:58(20th) and Carys Watchorn in 20:59(21st).

Today`s top 3 finisher time/date from history is Thomas Carroll`s 19:03 (or three minutes past 7). The FA Cup final this year was Bury 6 Derby 0. VAR has gone back in time and disallowed all 6 of Bury`s goals and given Derby 1 so Bury 0 Derby 1. Apologies to Brian Shenton for that.


Congratulations to all our first timers who joined us on this day! Whether you were doing your first ever parkrun or were visiting us for the first time,we hope you had a great time and have been back many times since.

The lost run reports #17 aka #parkrun 65

Before we get started this week I very rarely get requests but I was having a run down the park this morning with the pink welly lady aka Gemma C and we saw lots of parkrunners including our event director Steve who asked to be included in the run report.Seeing as he`s the boss,I am happy to oblige.Mollie the dog was soooooo ashamed.

So here`s a pre poem poem.


It was very hot down the park this morning

And whilst waiting for the on time challenged Gemma to arrive I wish there`d been a nearby awning

We saw lots of familiar faces including Steve,Jess and the legend that is Mollie

Also,2 running and 2 cycling from the Chalmers family.

We saw Jay and Hayley and lots from the run in Wirral group

We had a chat by the finish funnel and discussed a framework

But didn`t see Michael Buerk.


Enough of that malarkey.


The historical run reports haven`t got many to go

We`re now well into October,nearly 4 years ago

We had nearly 300 runners on that cold,freezing morn

But none possessed a French horn

There was no sign of Wogan,McColgan or even Hulk Hogan

Nor even Jamie Carragher aka Carra

Although could the unknown 2nd placed runner be Mo Farah?



Hello! Hope you are well! Good to see so many familiar faces in the park this morning. Loads of space to run and the car free roads are very nice indeed.Today`s historical run report is from Saturday 22nd October 2016. There`ll be three more of these,possibly 4 as my first one showed all the sophistication and quality of an England middle order batsman ,then a best of the run report feature,then a week later who knows? I might just put some repeats on, let me know if you`ve got any ideas.


Our first finisher (male) this week was Andrew Gawne in a time of 16:53,next was Mr Unknown then Jay "New job" Walker of Wallasey Ac in 17:53 and Bryan Stevenson of Wallasey AC in 18:04. Mike "Jolene" Green of volunteer fame was next in 18:20

Our first finisher (female) was Bryony Seed in 21:57(37th) then Elaine Opara of Wallasey AC in 22:01 (39th) and Eve Duret of West Cheshire AC in 22:17 (42nd)


Today`s top 3 finisher time/date from history feature is Eve Duret`s 22:17. Hmm, according to this,Tranmere Rovers win the Premier League,Port Vale the Europa League and Derby County the Champions League whilst Liverpool and Everton languish in League 2. Time travel eh?


Congratulations to all the first timers who joined us on this day! Whether it was your first time evs or you were visiting us for the first time, we hoped you had a great time and you`ve been to loads of parkruns since.Shout out to Merseyside`s number 1 bus driver,Dave Moore!

The lost run reports #16 aka parkrun 64

`Twas parkrun number 64

Better than any that had gone before

It had time travel,aliens and ghosts that went "BOO!"

Oh no,my mistake, that was an episode I saw of Doctor Who.

Who? Doctor Who. Who? Who? Doctor Who,oh I give up!

Thankfully(depending on your opinion,you may think otherwise) not

Although we had a no show from NFL wide receiver Cooper Kupp

We had 268 of you through the funnel,not one was Terry Wogan

And no sign of either McColgan.


Hello! Good morning,afternoon or evening! Hope you are well! 140 days since our last parkrun but I`m not counting. Keep the faith! We`ll be back and hopefully the mandatory bringing of cakes for the volunteers will be something we can all get behind! No fruit ones though. And I`m not even kidding. Today`s parkrun is from Saturday 15th October 2016. It was cold with a slight rain, a fine rain which etc etc.


Our first finisher (male) was Phil Langan of Wirral AC in 16:27,then Peter Bird of Wallasey AC in 17:28 and Mike Green,Mike Green,Mike Green,Mike Greeeeeeeen of Wallasey AC and slightly more importantly,our core team joint,assistant,deputy,wotsit event director person thing.He ran a time of 18:08.

Our first finisher (female) was Amelia Ratcliff with a new pb of 19:56! (15th) Followed by Helen Stansfield of Wallasey AC with a Shenton of 21:21 (27th) and Vicky Kehoe of Wallasey AC in 22:14 (39th)

Today`s top 3 finisher time/date from history feature (which got rave reviews last week....well one clever person liked it) is Mike Green`s 18:08.What happened in 1808 or nearly 10 past 6? There was a Rum rebellion ("albeit short lived"),the only successful armed takeover of the government in Australia! On a lighter note,the 1st practical typewriter was finished by the an Italian,Pellegrini Turri. So the next few words typed are dedicated to him.

He also invented carbon paper as well.Respect.

That`s enough knowledge for now.Onto the amazing first timers from this day. Congratulations to all of you who came and did their first parkrun with us,whether it was your first parkrun evs or if you were visiting us for the first time.We hope you`ve had a great time at parkrun ever since!

The lost run reports #15 aka parkrun #63

We`re getting deeper into October now

Our numbers are beginning to rise

Popularity beckons I can only surmise

I know for sure,we`ve never had an appearance from Denise Wise

Or given away a prize

Oh there was that bottle for someone reaching a numbers milestone

NO!! NO!! That was strictly under the table

Or a made up fable

The subject is quickly changed by a commotion in the finish funnel

Could it be ? Could it be ? No,even going back in time there`s still no Sally Gunnell.


Hello! Good morning! Today`s parkrun is going back in time to Saturday October 8th 2016 when given the usual climatic conditions in Birkenhead at that time of year,I`m guessing it would`ve been wet but mild. We had 274 runners and 19 volunteers which is 14.42 of you per volunteer. Stat.


Our first finisher (male) was Phil Langan of Wirral AC in 16:18,then Andy McQue of Stoke AC with a new pb of 16:27 and David Brockway of Wirral AC with a pb of 16:34.

Our first finisher (female) was Lisa Grantham of Pensby Runners in a time of 19:43 (21st),then Carola Robinson of Mersey Tri in 22:10 (56th) and Zara White of Wirral AC in 22:20 (61st)

Today`s top 3 finisher time/date from history thing (new feature!) is 16:18. So what amazing thing happened in 1618? Fans of the dredger,you are in for a treat. Captain John Gilbert patented the first dredger in Britain this month!

Can`t say you haven't enriched your knowledge today.


Congratulations to everyone who was a first timer on this day. We hope you had a great morning whether it was your first parkrun evs or it was your first time visiting our wonderful park. We hope you've had loads of brilliant parkruns since!

Our first timers on this day were Stephen Waite,Keira Dunning,Polly Dunning,Matthew Lee,Craig Rowan,Owen Clarke,Diane Ennis,Werner Zimmermann,Kim Atkinson,Andy Egerton,Isaac Rimmer,Conrad Haynes,Cathy Earps,Ian Hilton,Joanne Cook,William Mansell,Philip Leighton,Connel Murphy,Nadine Murphy,Emma Beasor,Tom Euers,Ian Fulton,Jack Fryatt,Naomi Gallichan,Suzanne Symonds,Michael Delafield,Danny Woodworth,Debi Loveland,Margaret Catlow,David Klonowski,Rob Grantham,Richard Smith,Scott Eves,Keith Clarke,Stewart Foster,Hayley McNicholas,Ruth Pritchard,Stuart Blackburn,Anna Watkin,Stephen Watkin,Phil Dorr

It was the first parkrun today for our top snapper

Of photos that is,many of runners and people in hi vis,all looking dapper

Of runners giving their all around the park

And of unsuspecting volunteers and their bestsides

And also dogs about to bark
