parkrun 316 7th September

Once again we were lucky to have a sunny morning in Clumber for our 316th parkrun.  We welcomed 26 volunteers, including some first timers and seven juniors, who all did a fantastic job.  At our volunteer briefing, we found out what had prompted each individual to offer to volunteer.  The answers were varied, and included:-

  • I love to be involved with a great event
  • My parents made me do it
  • I love to encourage others and offer support
  • I was dragged out by my wife
  • I feel guilty if I don't do my bit as I know the event can't take place without volunteers
  • I can't run at the moment, but helping out keeps me motivated
  • It helps with depression and gives me a reason to get out of bed
  • I promised myself that after 50 runs I'd make my 51st a volunteer role
  • I started as part of my D of E and am happy to keep volunteering
  • I used to bring my son and really enjoyed it, so kept coming along
  • I like to give something back and get my kids involved too

What was apparent, was that everyone really enjoyed volunteering and would recommend it to anyone.  If you feel inspired to give up your run once in a while to help out, don't forget to let us know  via email, Facebook or in person.

Our visitors today came from far and wide, including Australia and New Zealand.  Travis REVELL joined the 10 Club but unusually, no one else came forward with milestones, birthdays or anniversaries. We had a runner who identified himself as a 25.5 minute pacer for anyone who wanted to aim for that time.  He did manage to pace his friend Richard WARD to his PB in 25:13, but unfortunately forgot his own barcode so didn't get a recorded time!

Although parkrun briefings are largely similar at all events, in that they cover the main safety points of the parkrun code of conduct, each event covers matters specific to each location.  Each week we may have up to 70 or more runners who are visiting Clumber Park for the first time so it's important to give everyone the opportunity to listen to what's being said.  Please attend the briefing and stand quietly for a few of minutes to allow this to happen and only move to the start line when the RD has finished.

Andrew HEWITT undertook a 2.5 hour drive to join us from the North East this morning.  Straight after the run he was going along to the launch of the 'Run the Wall' event taking place at the Aurora Centre in Worksop, details of which were given at the briefing.  His friends organising the event had no idea he was travelling down, so no doubt there were smiles all round when he arrived.  To find out more about 'Run the Wall' and how the event is fundraising for the Aurora Centre, checkout their Facebook page.

Please remember that parkrun is a run and not a race and everyone is welcome to take part at whatever pace suits them.  There are no prizes for PB's, only personal pride and Strava kudos.  We ask slower runners to keep to their left to allow faster runners who might lap them to pass, but equally, faster runners should be prepared to slow down if necessary so they can safely overtake.  For obvious safety reasons, spectators and runners who have completed their run should also keep well clear of the finish funnel and take extra care when crossing the route or walking back to the car park against the direction of oncoming runners.  Here's Mel MCCLUSKIE finishing her 2nd parkrun and looking delighted at knocking a whopping 7 minutes off her time from last week.

Next week Clumber Runners have kindly offered to undertake all the volunteer roles. The Clumber Food and Drink Festival is also taking place, so allow additional time for the possibility of extra traffic in the park and #DFYB.  .

parkrun 314 24th August

What a schorcher!  This weekend was the hottest August Bank Holiday weekend on record and 299 runners, joggers and walkers enjoyed the summer sunshine in Clumber Park, with quite a few joining us from the weekend caravan rally. At the beginning of the week, the volunteer roster was looking very sparse, but Martin worked hard to encourage volunteers to come forward, and thankfully by the end of the week, all the slots were filled.  Here are the 23 'high viz heroes' who stepped up this week and we were especially pleased to welcome some first time volunteers to the team.

20190824_084914Every week, the volunteers have a quick briefing before the run starts.  We introduce ourselves, tell the group what our role is that day and for a bit of fun, everyone answers a 'special' question.  This week's theme was 'a memorable event in your life'.   The answers given caused both amusement and raised eyebrows and ranged from drinking with Prince Charles, to riding elephants in Thailand, sleeping in a brothel whilst on honeymoon, almost getting arrested, seeing a lion walking round a holiday compound and saving hedgehogs.  We certainly found out a few interesting (and surprising) facts about each other!  Don't forget that we ALWAYS need volunteers. so please check out the future roster to see where the gaps are and follow the email link to let us know where you'd like to be added.

Here are the SKELTON family who volunteered for the first time today and took on the role of tail walkers.  They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and commented on how interesting it was to see the event from "the other side" and promised to be back in the near future.

We had visitors from all over the country today, but visitors from Australia won the 'Tourist Top Trumps'.  We also had Christopher ROSS running with us and joining the 50 Club and Sarah AGAR joined the 100 Club.  We also had a couple of 'unofficial' milestones with Sven WARNER completing his 200th parkrun.  Sven kindly donated a voucher to the 200th runner, which was won by Lucy POWELL accompanied by Arthur on their first visit to Clumber. Here's Sven, followed by Lucy receiving her voucher from junior volunteer Brooke.

John PROFFITT completed his 77th parkrun and celebrated his 77th birthday on the same day.  I'm sure this double whammy was no amazing coincidence and has been many months in the planning.  Please don't try and orchestrate your 88th parkrun to fall on your 88th birthday John, or else we'll hardly see you over the next decade!

A date for your diaries is the Alzheimer's Society Memory Walk on Sunday 6th October in Clumber.  If anyone is willing to volunteer to help out on the day, the event organiser would be delighted to hear from you.  Further information can be found on the Alzheimer's Society website, where volunteers can also sign up.

parkrun 312 10th August

A worrying weather report never really materialised at Clumber Park today for the 312 parkrun; standing water and a few gusts of wind couldn't deter our 322 runners.

The volunteers enjoyed the sunshine before we started. Have you volunteered yet? Why not have a go?
