20181124 - ParkRun - 0004

It was cold and miserable this morning, the rain held off until the 40th minute, then the clouds burst and down came the rain! A troop of 141 enthusiastic people popped down to run, jog and walk the course. We welcomed 2 brand spanking new first timers to parkrun and we had 8 visitors from other parkruns (Killerton, Ashton Court, Bedfont Lakes,). The conditions were perfect for 17 runners who achieved new Personal Bests.

I was delighted to welcome the Claire Crook to Chippenham, she is the Event Director from Bedfont Lakes parkrun.  It is always nice to get visitors from other parkruns but even more special when it is the ED!

20181124 - ParkRun - 0295

Congratulations to Andrew Craven, who despite his best efforts to remain under the radar with his 50th parkrun milestone was dobbed in by his better half! She arrived just before the start forcing him to take the balloons and identifying him as the mysterious ‘Andy M’. Andrew began running parkrun in March 17 and has completed 32 of the 50 here at Chippenham.

We will also hold another event on New Years Day at 10:30, there are other events that are being held earlier (Melksham and Southwick) this will give you the opportunity to do two parkruns in one day!

We have a brand new and shiny Run Director – step forward Pete Campbell. Pete and his boys (Luke and Ollie) have been running here at Chippenham since April 2014. When our regular course setter-uppers Julia and Giles are defecting (I mean touring!) at other parkruns Pete, Luke and Ollie step in to set up the course for us. Pete did a marvellous job today in his first stint as RD, I am sure you will see more of him over the winter months.

What a bumper week we had this week 227 people popped down to run, jog and walk the course. We welcomed 11 first timers to world of parkrun and we welcomed 15 visitors from other parkruns such as Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Nonsuch, Plymouth, Worcester and Chipping Sodbury.

Many thanks to Calne SMaRTT runnning and Triathlon team for providing the pacers today. I am fairly sure they were responsible for 35 runners smashing their previous times and recording new personal bests.

Congratulations to Helen Stevens (middle of photo below) for achieving her 50th parkrun milestone. Helen started running here in September 2014 and has completed 47 of the 50 runs here at Chippenham.

20181103 - ParkRun - 0006

Today we held the uncancelled-cancelled parkrun! There are a few days every year when we are either unable to use the park or we have to share the park. We had originally planned to cancel, however the Rotary Club of Chippenham kindly allowed us to share the park with them whilst they were setting up for the Annual Chippenham Fireworks Display. In order for the Rotary Club to set up their stalls we had to move the start back to the original start position on the main path from the town.

We had expected a drop in numbers because a few regulars were taking the opportunity of a cancelled (uncancelled) parkrun to travel and do some tourism at other parkruns. However, 169 people turned up to run, jog and walk the course. We welcomed 6 first timers to world of parkrun and we welcomed 15 visitors from other parkruns such as Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Nonsuch, Plymouth, Worcester and Chipping Sodbury. 20 runners smashed their previous times and recorded new personal bests.

Congratulations to Ethan Amphlett for completing his 10th milestone parkrun. He has completed all 10 of the runs here at Chippenham.

Many thanks to all of the lovely 23 people who stepped forward to volunteer this week;

Vicky COOPER • Pete CAMPBELL • Dave SOWERBY-WILLIAMS • Ollie CAMPBELL • Neil ADDISON • Andrew NICHOLSON • Jeff KIRK • Joanne GWILLIAM • Richard CLACK • Daniel BEAN • Julie BEAN • Jules PEARSON • Darren COX • Heath GWILLIAM • Noah SMITH • Rita LINDSAY • Beau GWILLIAM • Nigel SHIRES • Stephanie BRAZIER • Lucy BRAZIER • Joseph COX • John BELCHER • Ben HARRIS

20181006 - ParkRun - 0004

Today was International parkrun Day and parkrun celebrated its 14th birthday and its 5 millionth registered parkrunner this week.

It was cold, it was wet and it was a miserable start to the day, it wasn’t too bad as we were setting up, then it started to spit, then drizzle. I delivered my quickest pre run brief ever to the 152 brave souls who vacated their warm comfortable beds early to have the pleasure of running, jogging and walking round the park. Then came the rain – the relentless rain and there was no escaping it. 19 soggy wet runners achieved PBs to ensure they could get home to the warm and dry as soon as possible. We welcomed 5 first timers to parkrun and 13 visitors from other parkruns.

First up this week I must thank the wonderful volunteers who braved the conditions and got soaked through for the privilege of doing so. A special mention must be given to John Belcher for taking this weeks photos in the rain. The others that we are grateful to are;

Chris HUNT • Ollie CAMPBELL • Neil ADDISON • Andrew NICHOLSON • Gary IBBOTSON • Jeff KIRK • Elizabeth BARNETT • Neil BENTLEY • Travis ARCHER • Selby ARCHER • Julia MADDOCKS • Giles ARCHER • Debbie WILLIAMS • Valerie LIGHT • Ian MOORE • Julie BEAN • Nicola LOWTHER • Jules PEARSON • Julia MANNERING • Becky O'BRIEN • Jinnette SMITH • Zachary SMITH • Noah SMITH • Rita LINDSAY • Beren WALKER • Dougal CAMPBELL • John BELCHER • Nicola JOHNSON • Julia COOK • Catherine HARRIS • Ben HARRIS

Congratulations to Mark Briggs for achieving his 100th parkrun milestone. Mark started running here in April 2014 and has completed 80 of those 100 runs here at Chippenham.
