An impressive 70 people recorded new Personal Bests – congratulations to you all, but particularly to Henry Miller who came home in 1st position shaving 26 seconds from his previous PB.
With a number of visitors coming to participate in the Brighton 10km and Marathon we saw runners from over 27 different clubs including South Devon AC in Paignton, Ranelagh Harriers in Richmond, Leighton Fun Runners, Birmingham University and Cornelly Striders in Bridgend, South Wales.

Brighton and Hove parkrun # 596

I think I chose the wrong week to be the Run Director with Claire!! Last week we had glorious weather and this week we got a wet, soggy morning but it didn't deter 453 people turning up!!

It was lovely to meet some of the 17 first timers before the run started and there were lots of questions regarding when to scan your barcode and how the times are worked out. I hope we managed to answer your questions. The weather didn't stop 66 of you getting PB's (including the first 3 home) this week – that works out as nearly 15% of you running faster than ever before!!.

Milestones this week were achieved by Andy Paterson from Arena 80 AC who has now completed 250 parkruns, Paul Smith who has now completed 100 parkruns and Rebecca Smith, Ali Willmore from Hove Hornets and Stephen King from Brighton & Hove FrontRunners all of whom have now completed 50 parkruns. Tigerliliy Baldwin and Oliver Barrows both achieved their 10th runs as juniors, with Oliver getting a new PB too. Well done to all of you!! Next week it looks like there could be 5 more milestones so if you'd like a mention during the run briefing please see the Run Director.

The first three home were Timmy Gedin from Arena 80 AC in 16.19, James Oliver from Brighton & Hove City AC in 17.22 and Matthew Berridge from Brighton Phoenix AC in 17.43 – well done guys, especially since you ALL got new PB's!! The first three women home were Sophie Coleman from Brighton Phoenix who came 10th in 18.55, Emily Budd from Brighton Phoenix who came 38th in 21.12 and Lorraine Hale from Arena 80 AC who came 45th in 21.45 – well done ladies!! Last but not least I'd like to mention the first 3 juniors home. Daniel Simpkin from Brighton Phoenix came 6th in 18.26, Leon Beale came 8th in 18.53 and Alex Thorn came 73rd in 22.47 – brilliant running!

39 people were unknown – either you forgot your barcode or haven't yet registered. It's free to register and means that you can work your way towards your free milestone shirts. Even if you don't have your barcode please collect a finish token – otherwise it messes up the results and takes the volunteers longer to get the results out! Please also remember to stay in line once over the finish line.

Last but not least I'd like to thank all the volunteers, without whom we wouldn't be able to go ahead each week:

Alison Porges, Amy Hausdoerfer, Andrew Brooks, Angela L Robinson, Ben Clifford, Brian Russell, Calum Salmons, Charlie Berlanga, Claire Giles, Derek Raven, Finlay Derry, Freya Mainprize, Ian Highland, Jane Roweth, John P Doherty, Kian Doyle, Llewellyn Curtis, Louis Maurice, Marina Bullivant, Mark Halls, Michael Howard, Paula Chessell, Peter Harwood, Phil Dixon, Richard Chessell, Rick Evans, Ronan Doyle, Ruth Farnell, Sam Harwood, Sarah Ann Hamilton, Sophia Hunnisett, Tegan Schafer, Toby Simpkin, Tracy Caroline Eaton, Valerie Poole.

Hope to see you all next week.

Sunny parkrun no 595, 23 Feb 2019

Today was one of those glorious spring mornings that make you glad to be alive.  When I left home in Steyning (about 7:30am) it was 4 degrees and very foggy, it felt really damp and cold and I worried that I hadn’t put enough layers on. But by the time I got past the Adur Valley and on the road to Hove Park, the sun was breaking through, the fog had lifted and the temperature had rocketed up to 9 degrees. And so began our morning at Hove Park. It was spectacular with many runners out in shorts and T-shirts. It’s not the kind of weather you expect on the 23rdof February but we weren’t complaining. Caroline spotted a tree creeper under the eaves of the toilet block and the woodpecker was busily hammering away in one of the tall trees near the finish. Daffs and crocuses are out, the sun shone and it was SO bright and sunny in the café after the run that we struggled to see the screen on the laptop while processing the results. What a good thing to complain about.

The run went smoothly with Caroline giving the pre-run briefing in a timely manner so we could have a prompt start. We had lots of visitors (partly because of Brighton Half Marathon the following day) including a lovely couple from London who will, I hope, come and run with us again when they are down this way (they visit Brighton regularly). I didn’t get their names (but from looking at the results I think I worked out she was Diane Sharrier, from Valentine’s parkrun) - she started running parkrun last summer and so far has only done her home parkrun in London. Her partner runs too but has yet to sign up officially to parkrun so I tried my best to persuade him to get himself a barcode. He says he’s not a runner really but I explained that you don’t have to be a ‘real’ runner to take part in parkrun, and everyone is welcome regardless of speed or fitness.

We had no really big milestones today apart from Junior Oliver Barrows reaching his 10th run. Well done Oliver. Lisa Atkins also reached her 200thrun (sadly there is no T-shirt for 200 but that’s a great achievement Lisa). However next week Steve Scott reaches 300 runs (no T-shirt), Andy Paterson will reach 250, and Yian Solomon of Lancing Eagles, Alli Willmore of Hove Hornets and Stephen King of Brighton and Hove FrontRunners will all reach 50 runs. Hopefully we’ll see you all next week.

Our first lady finisher today was the very speedy visitor, Heather Noone from Woodbridge Shufflers RRC. It was also her first ever parkrun and she followed that by coming a very respectable 6th female finisher in Sunday’s Brighton Half Marathon (1:22:28).

This week’s event was made possible by 49 volunteers:

John P DOHERTY • Mark HALLS • Nigel SARJUDEEN • Caroline WOOD • Mark STEPHENSON • Steve WOOD • Peter GOLTON • Susie LLEWELYN • Sean GIBSON • David KEMP • Tracy Caroline EATON • Gareth WHITE • Joan LENNON • Peter JOHNSTONE • Steve WALKER • Michael HOWARD • Claire GILES • Julie MCGUINNESS • Brian RUSSELL • Colin KNIGHT • Kevin WALKER • David MASKELL • Michelle BLACKWELL • Rosanna RAVEN • Carol KENNEDY • Kevin DAY • Georgie ANDERSON • Carmel O'MALLEY • Kayleigh MOAKES • Sarah BURNETT • Richard CHESSELL • Shawn BUCK • Toby SIMPKIN • Chris COULL • Lisa ELBOURNE • Harry RANSLEY • Clare EVERETT • Debbie SAINT • Jessamy HIBBERD • Guy TIPTON • Ben BROOKE-TAYLOR • Simeon MILES • Matthew KING • Leigh SANDERS • Mike MILLER • Ed RICHARDSON • Calum SALMONS • Llewellyn CURTIS • Tegan SCHAFER

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Brighton & Hove parkrun Results Page.

This week 400 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 52 were first timers and 49 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 30 different clubs took part.

The female record is held by Caroline HOYTE who recorded a time of 16:43 on 30th May 2009 (event number 84).
The male record is held by Charlie Maxwell GRICE who recorded a time of 14:25 on 25th November 2017 (event number 528).
The Age Grade course record is held by Karen BOWLER who recorded 94.00% (20:51) on 20th August 2011 (event number 200).

Brighton & Hove parkrun started on 3rd November 2007. Since then 19,390 participants have completed 192,056 parkruns covering a total distance of 960,280 km, including 32,168 new Personal Bests. A total of 1,608 individuals have volunteered 13,451 times.

Event number 591

26th January 2019

New Year’s Day resolutions are still flying high and we continued to see great numbers at this week’s run. A glorious 412 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers. Despite pretty damp and chilly conditions, 55 people recorded new Personal Bests including Emma Navesey, who was the first woman home shaving a further 14 seconds off her time to achieve an extremely impressive 18:21.

Congratulations also go to Dave Dunstall who completed the course in 18:48 taking just 2 seconds off his PB but racing home with an age-rating of 83.16%. Representatives of 35 different clubs took part and we welcomed Sarah Lloyd from Wakefield Triathlon Club, David Lewis from Newport Harriers and Rebecca Dunnell from the inimitable Mornington Chasers – a running club created in 1986 by post-office workers in the sorting office in Camden!

The event was made possible by 32 volunteers who are all worth their weight in gold. Without them, the run would simply not take place! Please take time to thank at least one marshal next week, particularly some of the younger marshals who are volunteering to complete their Duke of Edinburgh award. They would really appreciate it!

Thank you to John P DOHERTY • Neil WALFORD • Kevin BUSH • Mark STEPHENSON • Bernadette KIRRANE • Tracy Caroline EATON • Joan LENNON • Peter HARWOOD • Karen CLINTON • Ian WILDING • Brian RUSSELL • Michelle BLACKWELL • Kian DOYLE • Ronan DOYLE • Carol KENNEDY • Kevin DAY • Amy HAUSDOERFER • Linus TURNER • Toby SIMPKIN • Charlie BERLANGA • Leo BERLANGA • Daniel PORGES • Finlay DERRY • Sam HARWOOD • Julie ZHU • Yao HU • Freya MAINPRIZE • Katie HOFFELNER • Louis MAURICE • Ben CLIFFORD • Llewellyn CURTIS • Tegan SCHAFER

Without wanting to sound too ‘health and safety’, given that a large number of people are currently suffering with coughs and colds, could we please ask that if you need to ‘get rid of some excess mucus’, (i.e. spit!) on the way round the course, can you please, please, PLEASE step onto the grass to do so. In the last couple of weeks, there have been a number of near-misses, including myself trying to dodge flying spit with the runner being completely unaware. Thank you!

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Brighton & Hove parkrun Results Page.

The female record is held by Caroline HOYTE who recorded a time of 16:43 on 30th May 2009 (event number 84). The male record is held by Charlie Maxwell GRICE who recorded a time of 14:25 on 25th November 2017 (event number 528). The Age Grade course record is held by Karen BOWLER who recorded 94.00% (20:51) on 20th August 2011 (event number 200).

Have a good week running and remember to dig out hats and gloves for next week’s run – it’s going to be chilly.

Brighton and Hove parkrun # 590

 

Blimey, what a chilly morning, made more unpleasant by the 'seaside drizzle'. Even so, 444 of you turned up to run or walk (New Year's resolutions?), alongside our dedicated band of volunteers, including the trusty Duke of Edinburgh gang.

The first three home were Ian Leitch in 15.27, Todd Leckie in 16.02 and Andrew McCaskill in 16:40 – well done guys. The first three women home were Jenny Thorne in 20.24 (a new PB too!), Lucy May Richardson in 20.35 and Katie Louise Wright in 20.39 – well done ladies!!

Out of 444 participants, 17 of you were first timers and 47 got PB's (that's nearly 11% of you running faster than ever before!!).

No-one owned up to any milestones on the day, so here they are. Natalia Borg and James Turner both ran their 50th and Hugo Hayward, Junior male, achieved his 10th run. You'll be able to order your milestone shirts via your parkrun profile shortly.

32 people were unknown – either you forgot your barcode or haven't yet registered. It's free to register and means that you can work your way towards your free milestone shirts. Even if you don't have your barcode please collect a finish token – otherwise it messes up the results and takes the volunteers longer to get the results out!

Speaking of which, I'd like to thank all the volunteers, without whom we wouldn't be able to go ahead each week:

Alison PORGES, Amy HAUSDOERFER, Ann EKE, Anne BALDWIN, Ben CLIFFORD, Caroline WOOD, Corin TICKTIN-SMITH, David Joseph SIMMONS, Dorian COTTAM,  Finlay DERRY, Freya MAINPRIZE, Helen STAFFORD, John ADAM, John ARCHER, Jon BINNEY, Julie ZHU, Linus TURNER, Lisa ELBOURNE, Llewellyn CURTIS, Louis MAURICE,Mark STEPHENSON, Martha SACREE, Michele SILVESTER, Mike BALDWIN, Paul STRATTON, Ronan DOYLE, Rosanna RAVEN, Ruaridh STAFFORD, Tegan SCHAFER, Toby SIMPKIN, Tracy Caroline EATON and Yao HU

Look forward to seeing you all next week.

Brighton & Hove parkrun
Event number 585
22nd December 2018

Congratulations to all 330 runners and walkers who made the sensible decision to enjoy some fresh air and good company in Hove Park this morning and thereby avoid the Christmas chaos in Churchill Square. We welcomed 15 new runners this week, including Lindsay Middleton-Scarr, a veteran parkrun tourist who has visited over 47 different parkruns in total.

Conditions were ideal for running this morning and 34 runners recorded new Personal Bests – a tenth of our running community. Of particular mention is Ben Roden (15-17 category) – Ben completed his 117th run in an impressive time of 22:17 but has also volunteered 47 times – thank you Ben and well done!

Indeed, volunteers were in extremely short supply with almost all of the core team calling on friends and family to ensure that the run could take place. Enormous Christmas thanks therefore go to:

Austen HUNTER  •  Bernadette HECHT  •  Bernadette KIRRANE  •  Carol KENNEDY  •  Cathy FALL  •  Freya MAINPRIZE  •  Henry COPPARD  •  Jennifer HU  •  Julie ZHU  •  Karen CLINTON  •  Katie HOFFELNER  •  Keavey DOYLE  •  Kian DOYLE  •  Lorelei CLINTON  •  Michael HOWARD  •  Peter GOLTON  •  Richard CHESSELL  •  Roger FOORD  •  Ronan DOYLE  •  Rosanna RAVEN  •  Ruby Marsh WILSON  •  Shawn BUCK  •  Susie LLEWELYN  •  Toby SIMPKIN  •  Tracy Caroline EATON  •  Yao HU

There are a number of extra runs taking place over the Christmas period. Please click on this link for full details. Do check the start times as not all runs are at 9am.

Brighton and Hove parkrun # 572 – 22nd September 2018

A Milestone-tastic week and a long standing record broken!!

395 people took part running, jogging or walking on what was a grey, dreary and slightly drizzly day (although given the weather later on Saturday I think we got off lightly). Eight of you were running your very first parkrun – so welcome to the parkrun family - whilst 28 were doing their first run at Brighton and Hove.

There were several milestones this week – doing her 10th run was Kitty Summerfield, doing their 50th runs were Jason Best and David Buist, doing his 100th run was Lewis Rawlinson, doing their 150th runs were Amanda Garman and me (Alison Porges), doing their 200th runs were my hubby (Simon Porges), Dee O'Hare and Simon Belser and last but not least, doing his 300th run was Neil Barnard. Well done everyone – I look forward to seeing some new milestone shirts soon.

A special mention goes to Paul Whelpton in the 65-69 age category who, with a time of 18mins 47secs, beat the existing age grade record of 19mins 00secs, which has stood for 8 years! His age grading for this time was a whopping 90.15% (most of us can only dream of this) and he also got a new PB! Fantastic effort Paul!!

The first in today were Todd Leckie (16.51), Ash Dorrington (17.19) and Russ Mullen (17.36). The first junior home in 5th place was Daniel Simpkin, who has got a new PB two weeks running!! The first three females were Georgie Anderson (21.24), Tara Shanahan (21.54) and Charlotte Boden (22.10). Well done to you all.

There were 41 unknown runners this week. So remember, if you want your time and name on the results page, please register at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ , print out your barcode and don't forget to bring it each week. It's all totally free!

As ever, parkrun can't function without the volunteers. A huge thanks this week goes to:

Alison PORGES, Allan KNOX, Ben BROOKE-TAYLOR, Brian RUSSELL, Carol KENNEDY, Claire GILES, Cliff EVANS, Daniel GENT, Daniel PORGES, David Joseph SIMMONS, Dorian COTTAM, Eddie LYMER, Eddie MEEGAN, Euan HANNA, Frank SERAD, Freya MAINPRIZE, Geoff MANNS, George WALLACE, Helen Louise BUXTON, Helen PIERPOINT, Henry COPPARD, Henry MILLER, Isobel MACKENZIE, Jamie DOYLE, John ELBOURNE, John P DOHERTY, Jon MAXFIELD, Keavey DOYLE, Lisa ELBOURNE, Lorraine SIMMONS, Michael HOWARD, Monty JACKSON, Oliver BRYANT, Paul MARLEY, Richard A CARTER, Rick EVANS, Ronan DOYLE, Sarah KEHOE, Sarah SILBERSTON, Sophie POWELL, Stacey DAY and Toby SIMPKIN

B&H parkrun no 565, Saturday 4th August 2018

Once again the sun shone on Brighton and Hove parkrun, and also today on Brighton Pride which welcomed visitors from far and wide to our sunny corner of the country. As a result we had a few more attendees than has been the norm of late, with the third highest number of runners attending (477) since early February.  We had 81 people joining our parkrun for the first time, drawn from all over the UK as well as the local area. With Hove Prom and Preston Park parkruns being cancelled because of Pride we expected to be inundated but were glad the numbers stayed manageable, under the magic figure of 500. Visitors included George Mills from Harrogate, Paul and Alexander Keeler from Bushy Park, Martha Lovatt from Glasgow, Neil Anderson and his daughter Eileen from Falkirk, Libertine Bringas from Ally Pally , Richard Chisem from Hillsborough, Roxanne Zarpak from Kent, Ian Damen and Kate Eperon from Bromley, Sue Taylor from Conwy and many many others. Thanks for trying us out and I hope you all enjoyed your weekend on the south coast with all it has to offer. 

We had our usual lovely band of volunteers helping today and I would like to extend a special thanks to our visitors (mentioned above) Neil Anderson and his daughter Eileen who were visiting all the way from Falkirk. Eileen is a junior and, while not having run at a parkrun since 2016, she has an impressive pedigree as a volunteer, with 57 volunteering stints under her belt compared to only 12 runs. She was so helpful and competent as Volunteer Co-ordinator with David  (one of our regular VCs) and she also got stuck into handing out finish tokens. Dad (Neil) has logged 114 parkruns in total covering 42 different courses, and has volunteered 34 times. He ran at our parkrun and then took on the role of barcode scanning. What lovely people to have helping out today! And a big thanks to all our volunteers this morning.

We had a few milestone runs today – Neil Pearson completed his 300thrun,  Toby Kircher and Simon Gaiser each completed their 100thrun, and Jo Sharrocks and Daniel Hunter each completed their 50th run. Well done and I hope you manage to keep on running to your next milestone. Another couple of little celebrations today were birthdays to which we raised a glass – Nigel Sarjudeen’s birthday is on Sunday and the lovely Claire Giles (our Facebook expert!) celebrated hers during the week. Happy birthday to both of them and to anyone else who may have had a birthday too.

Till next time and keep cool

Joan

28th July 2018

Congratulations first of all this week must go to our glorious volunteers. The number of hands which were raised at the briefing in response to ‘Put your hand up if you have volunteered this year’ was really encouraging – thanks to you all. If you are reluctant to sacrifice your run (and I quite understand why!), please remember that there are LOTS of tasks that need to be done which also allow you to run: event set-up, pacing and token sorting. Please email brightonhelpers@parkrun.com and say which task you would like to do.

Despite the start of the summer holidays, we had a healthy 366 people running, jogging and walking the course, although a few hangovers meant PBs were not the order of the day for some parkrunners! We welcomed 36 first timers including Michael Robson from the wonderfully named Lonely Goat Running Club and visitors from Musselburgh, Prestwich, Rugby and Northampton. 30 runners recorded new Personal Bests: Chris Morgan knocked another few seconds of his recent PB to achieve 20:01 – well done!

Landmark runs were celebrated by Simon Battle (250), Joan Lennon (200) and Peter Johnstone (200), Matthew Sale (100), Toby Buckle (100) and Julia Alcock (50) -  congratulations to you all!

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers including John P DOHERTY • Cheryl COSTELLO • Karen CLINTON • Brian RUSSELL • Graeme POULTON • Kian DOYLE • Rosanna RAVEN • David WOOLMER • Helen STAFFORD • Brendan SPELLMAN • Simon PORGES • Alison PORGES • Keavey DOYLE • Derek RAVEN • James CORNFORD • Katherine PERRIN • Eddie MEEGAN • Betsy BROOKS • Euan HANNA • George WALLACE • Frank SERADI • Daniel GENT • Isobel MACKENZIE
