Run Report – Event Number 221 – 25th June 2022

Four of the top-ten finishers in Saturday’s Clacton Seafront parkrun
had cause for celebration after setting impressive new PBs.

Ronan Edwards (second), Nigel Smith (sixth), Francis Turner (eighth)
and Jamie Williams (ninth) all clocked new best times – and it turned
out to be a day of double delight for Ronan.

Not only did his time of 19:05 set a new benchmark, he was also
running in his 50th parkrun. No mean feat for this talented JM15-17
runner.

Clacton Seafront Runner Nigel was taking part in his seventh parkrun
and managed a new PB of 21:34, while Francis, in his third parkrun,
reached the finish funnel in 22:01.

Wells City Harriers’ Jamie, another up-and-coming runner, this time
from the JM11-14 category, finished a couple of seconds behind in
22:03.

As for the rest of the top ten, the consistent Mark Jasper was first
finisher once again, this time in another impressive time of 18:07.
Flynn Eyre was third with an excellent sub-20 time of 19:46, while
dad James followed him home in 20:34.

Isaac Moore, who recently clocked up his 100th parkrun, was fifth in
21:32 while another young gun, Jonathan Lower, was seventh in
21:51.

With Francis eighth and Jamie ninth, William Haining completed the
top ten in 22:06, and also bagged himself an age grade record as well.

There were 11 other PBs, in addition to the four already mentioned,
with Carl Fenton-Jones (18th ) delighted to finish in 23:17.
Graham Underwood (24th ) stopped the clock in exactly 24 minutes
while Tracy Lee managed a new best of 26:08.
Lola Barnes was 63rd in 28:23 and Rick Robinson (65th ) celebrated his
tenth parkrun with a new best of 29:15.

Clacton Seafront parkrun – Event number 219 – 11th June 2022 | Back to the standard route, but the sun meant not a standard day!

We continue to enjoy good weather on our coastline and this Saturday's parkrun was no different as we arrived ready for setup on Saturday our only concern was would it be too warm .... we are runners after all and are never happy, it's too cold, too warm, too windy any excuse for why we didn't get a PB ;-)

parkrunSun-clactonseafront

Warm weather aside this week 123 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 17 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.

Regular first finisher Mark JASPER of Great Bentley RC put in a great performance only 10 seconds outside of his PB I like to think on a cooler day that performance would have earned him a PB.

Our first female finisher was another Clacton regular Vicky MOORE.

A super effort from Ian SHEPHERD who was just behind her earning a new PB of 23:08 someone I know who has been working hard to improve this year so it is good to see hard work paying off.

As well as Ian well done to the other 16 people who recorded PBs on our course.

Run Report – Event 218 – 4 June 2022

It was a beautiful sunny morning on Clacton Seafront, but extremely windy for our Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend parkrun. Due to the events taking place on the Greensward, we were back on our original course from 2016, starting by the Beach Diner café.

 

We had asked parkrunners to come dressed in something red, white or blue and it was amazing to see so many people dressed for the occasion. The promise of post run treats clearly enticed a few more people to join us, as 150 people ran, walked or jogged the course.

Run Report – Event 217 – 28th May 2022

Clacton Seafront parkrun regular Harry Swinbourne had cause for a double celebration after a blistering performance on Saturday.

280156297_741063040651734_5473398715016311523_n

First and foremost, the Great Bentley runner achieved the holy grail of a fantastic new personal best, clocking an impressive time of 18:08.

It comfortably eclipsed his previous overall best of 18:48, set at Harwich, and the 18:53 he managed at Clacton just before Christmas.

Just for good measure, Harry was also first through the finish funnel for the first time, having come second on five previous occasions.

Harry was pushed all the way by Bentley clubmate Mark Jasper, who should also be proud of another excellent time of 18:10.

Michael Garry, from Oxford City AC, made his second appearance at Clacton and came third in a PB of 19:12. It was more than two minutes quicker than on his previous visit, in 2019.

Henry Morrison, running in his 350th parkrun, was fourth in 19:37 and Ashley Ranson fifth in 19:43.

The sixth-place finisher was unknown but the rest of the top ten comprised Daniel Patience (20:27), James Eyre (20:28), Richard Woolterton (20:45) and Rob Evans (20:59).

In addition, Richard and Rob (with an impressive 368 parkruns to his name) also had the distinction of achieving PBs.

The same can be said of 18th placed Simon Cann, in 23:03, and Tom Ryan-Smith, in 23:09.

There were 13 other PBs, with Ian Shepherd clocking 23:13, Dave Hirst 23:43, Andrew Robinson 24:02, Stephen Hughes 24:15, Andy Stirrup 25:26, Kieran Bone 26:08, Jane Ludlow 27:24, Grace Lamb 31:50, Lynne Farlie 33:25, Megan Hazelwood 33:29, Luke Nesbitt 33:46, Tamzin Webb 34:24 and Alan Platt 43:35. Well done all.

Saturday’s event was number 217 and 129 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers at Clacton.

Top-ten finishers Henry and Daniel were two of them and they were joined in the club by Harry Peek (14th in 21:52), Barry Smith (26th in 23:39), Linda Baxter (41st in 26:03), David Flavell (47th in 26:15), Daniel Keil (66th in 29:06), Leann Steer (77th in 31:32), Andrew Steer (83rd in 31:57), Robert Eves (98th in 36:28), Steve Box (104th in 37:02), Helen Wilding (114th in 42:29), Liz Griggs (115th in 42:30), Carrie Mann (120th in 44:38), Lesley Hyland (122nd in 51:02) and Barbara Hobbs (123rd in 51:09).

Representatives of 19 different clubs took part and, in terms of other significant milestones, Clacton Seafront Runner John Forrest notched up his 100th parkrun.

Saturday’s event was made possible by 21 volunteers - Steven Keam, Andy Rutson-Edwards, Anne Herbert, Chris Maloney, Lorraine Grindrod, Mark Grindrod, Mel Willsmore, Nigel Butcher, Bee Harris, Matt Plummer, Sam Plummer, Gill Cushway, Lydia Camilleri, Daniel Casey, Mark Jasper, Mick Dodge, Jeffrey Burrett, Rosalind Tracey, Rob Thompson, Felix Hirst and Rick Robinson.

Thank you Matt for todays run report.

As mentioned at the run briefing Saturday, I can confirm that we will have a CHANGE OF VENUE  for next weeks 4th June parkrun.  We will meet at the Beach Diner and as it is the first run of the month, we will be running the reverse route, so we will run along the lower prom up the slope onto the upper prom.  The Core Team would love to celebrate the Jubilee and so if you are able to wear Red, White and Blue, maybe a tiara some flags or something it would be lovely to see and celebrate with you all, fingers crossed for the weather.

Please give yourselves extra time to get to parkrun as the area may be busier than usual as the Mad About Theatre will be setting up their stalls and stands along the Greensward.

Mark and myself will now hand over to your Run Director Mel and your Volunteer Co-ordinator Julie.  Have a great week.
