parkrun report 503 – 14th March 2020 by Kevin TOMKINSON

Brueton parkrun
Event number 503
14th March 2020

Report
It’s been a few weekends since the last parkrun day and I hope you are all keeping safe until we meet again running laps round the park.

I was not at Brueton on this parkrun day as I visited Arrow Valley parkrun in Redditch, a 2 lap course like Brueton around a lake. I was in charge of the buggy again for this run and amazed myself with my result. 1. my time was a satisfying same minute as seconds (27:27) and 2. my finishing token was a nice round number (150) – little things please me.

This week there was 56 personal bests recorded.

Here is a list of the parkrunners who have completed over 50 parkruns who achieved a PB this week –

Matthew PRICE– 21:22 – 156 parkruns
Honglian WANG – 27:23 – 73 parkruns

First timers

22 first timers took part this week, for 12 of them this was their 1st parkrun – welcome to the parkrun family

parkrun report 502 – 7th March 2020 by Katie PRICE

Brueton parkrun
Event number 502
7th March 2020

Report
This week Brueton parkrun reached its 502 week, and the sun was shining for the
celebrations of International Women’s day.
I wasn’t there myself, so I joined Sherwood Pines parkrun, but I was keeping an eye on
Brueton so I could write this report.
We wanted to welcome Solihull Radio to Brueton (in the pictures), they came along, took
part then held their Saturday Sports Radio show talking to our very own Andy Lucas about
all things parkrun. I listened whilst watching the squirrels and the geese enjoying the
delights of Sherwood Forest and what a great job Andy did. You too can listen to the show
on;

parkruns everywhere were celebrating International Women’s Day, with many of us having a selfie with a new Selfie Frame, celebrating that women are strong everywhere no matter what their story or experiences are. Women are starting to become the highest percentage of participants in running these days. Back in the 80’s only 4% of the London Marathon were women. This year around 48% of those taking part are women including myself. I wonder if this is due to the great effects parkrun is having on women and running all over the world.

61 people chose to run Brueton for the first time this week, and a whopping 94 runners recorded a PB including Gary POLHILL one of our regular marshalls who took first place and a fantastic PB of 16.53. Well done Gary.

50 volunteers ensured everyone had a safe and fun event this week including John COOPER who comes every week. I tried to count how many weeks he has done, but gave up counting there were too many, but I know it is over 350. Thank you John my favourite hug provider.

A regular parkrunner Kevin TOMKINSON took part in his 400th parkrun yesterday at Stratford Upon Avon. Well done to Kevin and little boy Benjamin who is always with him wherever he chooses to run.

Brueton parkrun
Event number 501
29th February 2020

Report

After the [Lord] Mayors show[n up], not a bit of it! The 501st Brueton parkrun was just as eventful & definitely more sodden.

We had 501 brave souls who paddled, walked, jogged & ran the course. It really was a wet course with standing water across the path in a couple of places, not something we’ve experienced too often before I’d imagine.

We know the 29th Feb was a unique experience for parkrun, being the 1st time this date has fallen on a Saturday since inception, but for Brueton something else happened, we had 501 parkrunners at the 501st event. This is actually the 3rd time this has happened at Brueton, with event 401 in April 2018 & 401 parkrunners & also event 196 in April 2014, with 196 parkrunners. So in celebration of this here are some random numbers.

5 Random numbers
In 196th place was Ingrid ROCHELLE with a shiny new PB, well done!

We had 187 female parkrunners & in 187th place was Mike GIBBINS
We had 270 male parkrunners & in 270th place was Helena SMITH
We also had 44 who forgot their barcode #DFYB, so in 44th place was Mike MCDONALD

Random PB's

parkrun report – 22nd February 2020 by Helen PICKERING

Brueton parkrun
Event number 500
22nd February 2020

Report

This was a very special parkrun for all of us at Brueton. It was our 500th event, nearly 10 years after our first. On arrival, it was immediately obvious how many people had been able to wear blue as requested, to match the 500 parkrun shirt. It was a sea of blue!
We had an almost record-breaking 748 people who turned up for the occasion, running, jogging and walking the course.
The pre-event briefing was a bit different as the Mayor had come to watch and our esteemed Event Director Andrew LUCAS treated us to a bit of song, albeit with some reluctance! Brueton stalwart Sandra BOOT had rewritten the lyrics to the classic 500 Miles by The Proclaimers. Andy made a few changes to the lyrics and we simply had to share them in this run report:

Great job, both of you.
