New Years Day parkrun 9am

Hello Clare Castle parkrunners

As it was so popular last year, we are hoping to do our New Year's Day parkrun at 9am. This should allow you to do the Haverhill or Great Conard parkrun after.

We are doing this as long as we can get enough volunteers, so if you're not running/walking but would still like to take part, please drop us an email at clarecastle@parkrun.com.

Kind regards,

Clare Castle parkrun

COMPETITION TIME

Colchester Stampede 10k  is coming up on 19th May at Colchester Zoo. As a local parkrun, they would like to offer us 2 free entries for a couple of your regular runners. To be in with a chance to get a free place at this great run all you have to do is write your name on the paper which can be found at the scanning tent after our next parkrun. Names will be drawn out of a hat on the following parkrun at the beginning. If you are not there we will contact you so please ensure you leave your email address or number if you are not likely to be there again before the race. 

 

The run is also looking for marshals, if anyone is interested please let me know. We get £25 towards our parkrun for equipment per marshal, pretty decent.

Next week TRI SUDBURY return to take over, they were fantastic on the last one so really looking forward to having them back, cow bells and all. If you are interested in joining them please come along and take the chance to talk to the awesome team this Saturday.

What a great way to start the year and work off the excess christmas indulgences. If you are interested in volunteering please do let us know. All abilities of course welcome.

Hope to see lots of you there

 

Clare Castle parkrun Event number 56 10th November 2018

What a B-E-A-Utiful day to run! Glad to see so many here again and several new faces. I am pleased to report we had no incidents today ..however, that is not surprising as our regular runner James is inadvertently taking a holiday from sports...GET WELL soon James.

We are also excited to announce that we are partly responsible for winning Suffolks Most Active Town Award this year and further still we were allocated £2000 as an award from Leeds Building Society to fix the finish funnel path. What an awesome week!!!!

You are all responsible for this success. Special thanks again to our trustees for their part in this.

Clare Castle parkrun Event number 50 29th September 2018

Thank you all for coming along today to run, walk or volunteer. Today was a very special parkrun as we were celebrating our 1 year and our 50th Clare Castle parkrun. I would like to personally take the time to say a very special thank you to our team of core volunteers who without hesitation have been here to support and ensure the run goes ahead each week.

Our park trustees have been particularly generous personally giving up their time every week to ensure our community can enjoy our local free parkrun, and with the help and complete guidance of Geoffrey Bray we can proudly say we have been sponsored by Leeds Building Society to get the finish funnel resurfaced.

In addition, thank you so much for all the cakes and balloons, I think we can all agree the cake made by Emma Hastings and family was incredible!!! A further thanks to the Railway Cafe who accommodate us and our often muddy trainers every week, and further still generously provided us with some of the delicious sweet treats for todays event.

Of course there is also you guys, the participants who show up each week ready to run, it has been incredible to watch and see every individuals effort and goals being achieved. With that in mind I am going to mention a few that have stood out this year, Charlie Minette and his brother Harry. You will all know who we mean as we have all felt the sinking feeling as these incredible children lap us along with the father James who also volunteers when possible. Charlie currently holds the junior age grade record at an incredible 20:57 seconds. Further to this the Hopkin Brothers (Chay and Ben) who are always in the top 10 and show us how effortless those speeds are supposed to look. Our current female record is held by Hannah Irwin at 18:00 and our Male record holder is Chris Darling with a not so modest 16:10…no pressure. We recognize its not just about speed here though, many personal journeys have been met and we a particular proud everyone who joins us each week. Well done guys.

Now lets smash the next 50 parkruns and aim for some more PBS and milestones.
