Canons Park parkrun is cancelled on 2021-01-23 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Canons Park Event #183

We had a great parkrun day with 135 people completing the 5k course, part of which was still flooded, but that did not stop 19 people recording Personal Bests.
We had 17 first timers to Canons Park parkrun, of whom 9 were completely new to parkrun. There were quite a few people participating for the second or third time which was great to see.













The event would not have been possible without all the following hi-vis heroes – a great big thank you to each and every one of you.

The event was made possible by 21 volunteers:

Bev Thoma • Andrew Mayall • Peter David Thomson• Hsiang-Ju Lin • Nathan Powell • Kyie Hillingshead • Shama Meghjee-Caine • Alisha Sidik • Andrew Southerland-Kirby • Hannah Fatema Meghjee-Caine • David Merrigan • Tom Brady • David Brown • Nikhil Shah • Arti Patel • Deri Ansher • Tahera Kassam • Rachael Serbos • Siobhan Wilby • Sam Wilby • Jack Wilby

Run Report #180

On the 22nd of February, 137 parkrunners took up the challenge of Canons Park 5k. There was a diversion coming out of the spinney, due to unsafe conditions. This slightly longer route didn't stop 8 people getting PB's.
Jenny Storer completed her 25th volunteering point today, congratulations to her.
The first male was Michael MILLER.
The first female was Zahra BASSIRI.
A big thanks to all the volunteers, who without the event would not have been possible.

Canons Park #178

Canons Park parkrun Event number 178 8th February 2020 On the calm Saturday morning before the storm, Canons Park saw 186 park runners, walkers, joggers.14 of the park runners were tourists from South London, Birmingham, New Castle and many more.7 of them, were new to parkrun. Welcome to parkrun family, I hope you enjoyed it and hope to see you next Saturday. The puddles and mud didn’t stop 27 of you getting PB’s. We also celebrated Wendy and Hugo’s birthday. Hope you both had a nice birthday. Out of 186, there were 75 females. I mention this because parkrun are encouraging us to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) as research shows that, across the world, women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun. Despite the fact that females make 54% of registrations, they are less likely than men to take part in parkrun and to continue participating. To help change this, parkrun are organising a global female-focused parkrun celebration in conjunction with #ThisGirlCan campaign on Saturday 7th March, the day before IWD. We would like all our participants to encourage women and girls you know to attend our event on Saturday 7th March, whether it is to run, jog, walk, volunteer or just attend and have a cup of tea/coffee with us. There will of course be CAKE to mark the event. It would be great to see more women volunteers round the course and at the finish line. If you would like to volunteer on 7th March, please get in touch. Please note this is not an exclusive event for women; men and boys are very welcome too. #IWDparkrun #thisgirlcan The event was made possible by 20 volunteers: Mark MULVENNA • Sam WHITE • Brian MCGRORY • Nathan POWELL • David BROWN • Sakina SIDIK • Kyie HOLLINGSHEAD • Wendy MULVENNA • Shama MEGHJEE-CAINE • Elizabeth ABRAHAMS • Eva KRAMER • George LEACH • Alisha SIDIK • Anne CHENG • Tony MEAGER • Anthony SINDOLE • Deri ANSHER • Tanya KEENE • Elliot LAWFORD • Ashish MEPANI Run Director, Sakina Sidik.
