Report

Title: You don’t have to sacrifice your run to be a high vis hero!

Is missing the chance to run what’s holding you back from volunteering? It shouldn’t. There are a number of roles that allow you to enjoy your weekly Parkrun fix and chalk up a volunteering stint. Writing the run report is one of them. Tail walkers are also credited with a run and a volunteer slot. If you’re speedy you could try a spot of bar code scanning during the peak finishing period which happens a few minutes after you’ve finished. Helping to set up before the start or clearing away afterwards is another option. Alternatively, you might fancy doing the first-timers briefing? There are plenty more I’m sure, just ask one of the core team next time you’re at Brueton or email Bruetonhelpers@parkrun.com.

Now I don’t want to lecture anyone. Volunteering is after all, voluntary. However, without our volunteers Parkrun couldn’t happen. If you’re a regular runner, I would urge you to do your bit just every once in a while.

Are you injured? If you can’t run, volunteering is a great way to enjoy the community of Parkrun and give a bit back.

Have you got a Sunday race coming up? You could marshal on the Saturday before or put yourself forward for another volunteer role.

I find being a marshal very satisfying. You get to cheer people on and see the full spectrum of parkrunners pushing themselves towards their individual goals. It is lovely to be thanked, whether that’s while you’re on the course, or afterwards if you can’t spare the breath.

As if satisfaction isn’t its own reward, you even get a snazzy purple t shirt when you’ve volunteered 25 times!

If reading this has whet your appetite to volunteer or caused a tinge of guilt, find out more on the links below. Go on, give it try!

64 is square of 8, the cube of 4 and the sixth power of 2. It is the smallest number with exactly seven divisors. It is the total number of squares on a chess board and featured in the title of the Beatles song ‘When I’m 64’. 37 runners in the 60-64 category ran today. In 37th place was Matthew Byatt, a first timer at Brueton, running his 5th Parkrun in exactly 21:00.

parkrun report – 27th April 2019 by Adam Hayes

Brueton parkrun
Event number 458
27th April 2019

Report

This week, 462 Parkrunners ran, walked and jogged off their Easter chocolates in the Brueton parkrun. The numbers were slightly down this week possibly because of the chilly weather or the London Marathon on the next day.

Storm Hannah struck Brueton Park, but there seem to be no Hannahs running this week; incidentally, the next storm to hit will be named Idris. The names alternate between male and female, and the letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z are deliberately omitted, as is customary in international storm naming conventions.

The only interesting fact about the event number 458 was a Ferrari model costing $230,000.

Awards were given for the most percentage improved over the last 18 months. Congratulations to:

· Ben Penton (junior male) 40.84%

· Anastasia Murrel (junior female) 21.37%

· Rakesh Bansal (male) 85.36%

· Rosalind Urquhart (female) 48.09%

5 Random numbers

It was event #458 and in 458th was Michelle Shepherd with 46:25.

In 46th was Peter Hopewell with 22:01

There were 44 volunteers and the runner closest to 44 minutes was the Brueton parkrun legend that is Margaret Smith with 44:12.

Margaret and Luna have completed 310 runs and in 310th was John Brooks with 30:26

It will be the 39th London Marathon on 28th April, and in 39th was Phil Carter with 21:35

The length of London Marathon is 26.21 miles long, which is the time Sophie Williams completed Brueton Parkrun in today

Event number 457

Report

T-shirts, trophies & an unexpected pleasure
This week’s run report was supposed to have been brought to you from Poole Parkrun but a
last-minute change of plan meant I had the unexpected pleasure of being able to run at
Brueton. The park looked splendid, bathed in bright morning sunshine, & it was so lovely to
be on home ground amongst the familiar faces of friends old & new. For this reluctant
runner (who I must admit is, at long last, gradually getting less reluctant) parkrun is as much
about chatting to people afterwards as it is about wheezing my way round the park.
Although I have ventured to run at a couple of other parkruns while on holiday, something is
certainly missing from the experience when I don’t get to have a good chinwag afterwards.

4 trophies were awarded on the morning, for the most PBs in the past 18 th months.
With some very impressive tallies, the winners are:

Christian Cappendell (junior)
Anastasia Murrell (junior)
Kerry-Ann Thompson
David Hayes

parkrun report – 13th April 2019 by Adam Hayes

Brueton parkrun
Event number 456
13th April 2019

Report
It was event #456 and 603 people ran, walked and jogged the Brueton parkrun course. The 85-89 Course Record was broken again by Margaret Smith with a record of 41:04 - well done Margaret!
It was a bright but chilly morning today and there were 109 PB's recorded. I looked on Wikipedia and the number 456 has more interesting facts other than bus routes. These include the Ferrari 456 and 456M were produced between 1992 and 2003; the year 456 was a leap year.
As well as parkrun, today I have been busy at Ackers Adventure Centre with scouts, which included kayaking, skiing and archery. So I definitely deserve a rest now!

Just a reminder that the Solihull Sixth Form College car park will be closed next week.

In 456th was Jo Abbotts with a time of 31:58.
There were 38 Volunteers and in 38th was Tom Anstiss, who was a first timer to Brueton with a time of 20:38.
