parkrun 305 15th June

Today we had a silent silence, Ben signed for us and we made a movie! (oh and we also did a parkrun :) )

What a fantastic group this morning, the sun was shining and everyone was in great voice. Everyone Hey, Hey, Hey listened up as we met Ben Jones, Ben came to sign the welcome brief for us to help our deaf and hard of hearing runners. I was tempted to play the "what do rude words look like in sign?" game but apparently it was inappropriate so we didn't! (Martin)

We all made a movie as part of the thank you parkrun selfie campaign. (click on the photo below to watch the video)

We had lots of milestones this week, a number of 50s including the very shy postman Dave Keeling. We also had a couple of 100s too! Well done everyone on fantastic achievements.

We had visitors from Sheffield, Huddersfield, Grantham, Oldham and South Africa! We also had 56 first timers this week which is brilliant, welcome to our parkrun family.

A group of our Vegan Runner friends came to see us today, some local regulars but many from further afield, they were all super fast so to improve your time check out a vegan diet!

All finish tokens came back safe and sound so thank you for your help. Thanks to our fantastic volunteers for being so amazing, if you would like to try on a High Vis then head to our volunteer page and get your name down, there is genuinely no better feeling than helping once in. while.

 

Finally here's Ben saying how much he enjoyed Clumber parkrun and what a rather splendid chap the RD was this morning (again you need to click on the photo to watch the video) see you next week!

parkrun 304 8th June

Today Bailey was the run director, if you ever wondered what happens while you are battling through the wind and rain to try and get a PB here is a clue!

IMG_1758

Bailey's now running a campaign to be the permanent RD using the hash tag #bailey4rundirector. I don't know if he's got the credentials of a Michael Gove (i.e. taken illegal drugs) or Boris Johnston (who's gaffes have fuelled more than one series of "Have I Got News For You") but I'm sure he doesn't have a manifesto!!! If he doesn't get the job he'll still be available for Weddings, Funerals, Bar Mitzvahs, Divorce parties etc... all proceeds going to the Be More Bailey Charitable Foundation.

IMG_1776IMG_1754

As part of the briefing we also had a few words from Jago about how a group of 14 staff from the National Trust will be undertaking a 15km rough runner event next Saturday (15th June) to raise money for our conservation work at Clumber. Anyone wishing to find out more about this or sponsor them please see: Clumber Park Revitalised.

Barcode scanning today was all done by volunteer regulars "Team Gibson-Blackwell" who were aiming to get the youngest barcode scanner record.

Today we had visitors from Sheffield, Leeds and Cumbria (who I am sure are regular visitors!).

IMG_1763

First home was first timer Matthew Lawrie who normally runs and volunteers at Graves parkrun. Matthew didn't have his barcode with him at the finish line so we made him run back to the camping field to get it. You needed a warm down after all that effort! Remember always keep a spare barcode in your car, phone case and wallet etc....

Matthew was with his dad Ken who was celebrating his 60th birthday and Bailey led the rendition of "Happy Birthday" during the run brief. Also well done to juniors Cameron and Ryan for achieving their 10 run milestone.

Don't forget next week Ben is coming to sign the run brief, so if you know anyone who will benefit from having this interpreted please bring them along. Unfortunately it's not going to make Mark's jokes any funnier, Ben is not a magician!

parkrun 303 1st June

This week is National Volunteers' Week and today 21 parkrun high viz heroes stepped forward to carry out all the volunteer roles needed to ensure our parkrun ran smoothly and safely. We're always looking for help on a Saturday morning so please don't take it for granted that the roster will be overflowing with volunteers!  Martin has to work hard during the week to fill all the roles, so please consider making his job easier and giving back to your local event by dropping him an email at clumberparkhelpers@parkrun.com to offer your services.
20190601_085325Completing her 25th stint as a volunteer, Christine STEVENSON was giving out finish tokens this week.  She now joins the Volunteer club which recognises any volunteer who has volunteered on at least 25 different occasions and qualifies for her free purple milestone t-shirt. Thanks for all your help Christine.  Although not an official parkrun milestone, Jane GRANT notched up an impressive 100 volunteer weeks last week, but forgot to mention it, so we gave her a special clap and cheer today as a belated celebration.

Cameron ARTHUR arrived with a large balloon to celebrate his 10th run and also running at Clumber and joining the 50 Club today were Jo LUCAS and Matthew CLARRY,

20190601_092555Today, parkrun celebrated the first birthday of the hugely successful parkrun practice initiative by inviting GP's and practice staff to take part in their local parkrun. Nationally, more than 800 general practices have now signed up to be a ‘parkrun practice’; linking with their local parkrun event to promote the health and wellbeing of patients and staff, and create entire communities centred on wellness. We were joined by several GP's and staff from the Riverside Practice and Newgate Street.

20190601_094350Clumber Park parkrun 010619

The first three finishers today were Ben HARRIS (16:57), Gary CADMAN (17:10) and Lewis BANTON (17:24).  Try telling them 'it's a run, not a race'!

20190601_092757

First female home, was once again young Anna MADDOCKS (19:42).

20190601_093019

There were a couple of parking issues this morning so please respect the requests of the National Trust staff and park as directed by them.  Also, if you are one of the early finishers, please leave the event field SLOWLY and be mindful that some of the slower runners and other park users may be around.

In case you hadn't noticed, we took delivery of our new selfie frame today and it was certainly very popular with everyone.  Next week we have a 'guest' Run Director in charge of proceedings, so arrive in good time to park, remember the parkrun code of conduct and #DFYB

parkrun 302 25th May

It was a very sunny morning in Clumber this Saturday as we welcomed 316 runners, joggers, and walkers to our 302nd event. Of those, 54 were running at Clumber for the first time and Mark gave them a quick run through of the do's and don'ts before the main briefing.  If you would like a reminder of what to do on the day of the run, here's all you need to know from parkrun support.

20190525_085655We were very grateful to all 21 volunteers who made sure everything ran smoothly today.  The volunteers are always an enthusiastic bunch who take their roles seriously. Indeed, Nat felt so attached to her marshal's lanyard last week that she took it home with her, but luckily remembered to return it today. 

As we move into 'holiday season' we generally have lots of empty slots on the volunteer rosters  If you've never volunteered before, please consider foregoing your run occasionally and helping out.  Simply check out the future roster page on the website, then email Martin to let him know which gaps you're willing to fill.   Sometimes volunteers come early and do a 'Freedom Run' before the main event.  There's even an official place where you can record this so you don't miss out!

Ben HARRIS is a regular at Clumber and has been the first finisher on numerous occasions.  Today he led from the start and finished in a time of 16:46 - a whole 3 seconds off his PB! 20190525_090443

There were cakes to celebrate new Club members today as Eden BUTLER joined the 10 Club, Pat HIGGINS and Tim CAULTON joined the 50 Club and Darren DOBB joined the 100 Club.  Well done to all and hopefully you'll soon be proudly wearing your milestone t-shirts.

Don't forget that next Saturday is parkrun GP Pledge Day, so if you're a GP or practice staff, do come along and walk, jog or run with us, encourage your colleagues and patients to join in too and help to mark the first anniversary of the 'parkrun practice' initiative More than 900 general practices have now signed up to be a ‘parkrun practice’ - linking with their local parkrun events to promote the health and wellbeing of patients and staff.  We look forward to seeing you at Clumber on Saturday.

parkrun 301 18th May

Another dry morning at the National Trust's Clumber Park saw 326 people run our 301st parkrun.  Unfortunately the rain arrived at 10am but it didn't dampen the spirits of any of the runners or any of the fantastic 21 volunteers.

Before the run began a couple of pixies were seen in the volunteer hut retrieving their lost property from last week...

Clumber Park parkrun 180519

If you think you may have left something then please let us know, we even had a activity tracker handed in last week; quick, everyone check your wrist!!!

Clumber Park parkrun 180519

We were joined this morning by Bassetlaw Triathlon Club, most of whom have either ran or volunteered at Clumber parkrun.  They were talking to people about their event in August (http://www.bassetlawtriclub.co.uk/event/), a number of people were talking about entering a team where one person does the indoor pool swim (400m), another the bike ride (24km) and another the run (5km) - sounds like a great idea!!!

We had visitors from a far and wide this morning, Surrey, Kent and even Boston! (Lincs though, not Massachusetts!)

A couple of our regular runners were both celebrating their 100th parkrun today, Rosie and Jane - both brought cake!

Clumber Park parkrun 180519

Jane also brought cake for the volunteer hut and a gift for the 100th finisher.  The winner of that spot-prize was Andrew Bowmer who accepted it from one of our Funnel Managers today Bailey.

Clumber Park parkrun 180519

We have to mention our winner this week Ben, after the watches were synchronised and checked he finished this week in 16:48, the identical time that he finished last week!!!  10 out of 10 for consistency Ben!

Clumber Park parkrun 180519

We would also like to thank everyone for handing in all the position tokens again this week, we don't think it was anything at all to do with the two scary faces on the token sorting this week; anyone know which one is JJ ?

Clumber Park parkrun 180519

As always, if you would like to experience the fun from the other side of parkrun, and volunteer, then please let us know.  In our briefing session this morning we took a few minutes to close our eyes and listen to the calming and relaxing sounds from our surroundings...bliss!
