Burnham and Highbridge parkrun #203 18.05.2019

Another great parkrun, with our second highest ever turnout of 428 participants.  The numbers were boosted by 107 First Timers (probably another record).  27 of these were doing their first ever parkrun,  the numbers are still growing. Hope you enjoyed the experience, and will come again.

There were loads of visitors, and we had our first coach load of 29 parkrun tourists from Les Croupiers Running club in Cardiff on their way to the Plymouth Half.  They even brought a cake to celebrate Helen Hubbacks 100th parkrun with us, which was greatly appreciated by the volunteers.

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun 201, 4th May 2019

Another successful Burnham and Highbridge parkrun and this week we celebrate two of our local parkrunners who successfully completed last week’s London Marathon. Sue Nicholls (65 parkruns) 192nd, 29:09 and Kevin Roche (76 parkruns) 228th in 30:57, both successfully completed the 26.2 miles last week, with Sue winning her age category in the process. Both Kevin and Sue are inspirations to our younger and seasoned runners and fully deserved their success from all their efforts last week.

2019-05-04 (306) 2019-05-04 (338)

It was also noticeable that a number of our parkrunners were also wearing London Marathon achievement t-shirts today. Congratulations to you all on your success last week and hopefully today provided respite to your legs.

Many of our run reports highlight the merits of our volunteers and today was no exception. One of stalwart volunteers this year has been Chloe Sutherland. Chloe has volunteered on a regular basis through the year, fulfilling all the volunteer duties to accomplish her volunteering section of her Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The reward for all her efforts was to act as Run Director and confidently deliver the pre-run brief to our 376 parkrunners. Chloe did a fantastic job and congratulations on achieving this element of your award. Today was my 100th parkrun at Burnham & Highbridge, but if any of you can volunteer at a future parkrun it would be greatly appreciated. To enrol, please contact burnhamandhighbridgehelpers@parkrun.com.

Our first runner home today was Jason Scott, completing the course in an impressive 17:46 (personal best), whilst Janie Swift was our first lady home in 21:06, 27th overall. Congratulations to everyone that participated today. We hope you all enjoyed today’s event.

Burnham And Highbridge parkrun # 200 25th April 2019

**200**

On the 20/06/2015 our first event was attended by 144 athletes supported by 17 volunteers, and from this tentative beginning we have travelled an incredible journey to reach our 200th event. All credit must go to the incredible people who turn out each week and volunteer through all weathers and conditions. 

On that note, Storm Hannah made her presence felt this morning with buffeting and forceful winds. Regardless of these trying conditions, which were really a battle to stay on your feet at times, an amazing number of athletes lined up at the start.

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun # 199 – 20/04/2019

Phew - wot a scorcher!

We're truly in the full-swing of the Easter now and the glorious weather coupled with a bank-holiday long weekend all came together today to produce a record-smashing attendance here at Burnham & Highbridge of 589  - that's an amazing 173 more than our previous best!
Whilst we were prepared for the expected holiday boost, this was way beyond our expectations and as you can appreciate with additional numbers comes additional work. Processing the results took a little longer than normal and we thank you for your patience. We also thank our amazing volunteers who stayed behind well after everyone else had left to crunch the numbers and get those all-important results emails out.

start easter

The course looked absolutely stunning today with the gorgeous spring sunshine and high tide only adding to the naturally stunning views along the river bank section.

boats

Running conditions today were almost perfect, albeit a little warmer than of late but a little sweat always make you feel like you earned that post parkrun treat right?

It was good to welcome so many of newcomers and Parkrun tourists of which a special mention must go to two amazing families:
The Stevens, who were represented by 3 generations including Anne who celebrated her 50th Birthday and nanny She, who at 73 was taking part for the first time today!
We also had a staggering 21 members of the Smith/Griffin Family - spanning 3 generations and made it here today from as far away as Australia - well done guys hope to see you next week ;-)

21 family

Making a welcome return today (and probably adding to the boost in numbers) were our ever popular pacers, providing a little boost and helping those chasing an elusive PB or just looking to run at a steady pace. Whilst it can prove a little tricky for the first few hundred metres until some "free-space" is found, tagging along with these indicators of estimated finish time are a great way of helping you achieve that goal.
