parkrun 354 9th October

We've enjoyed some lovely weather so far this month, and this Saturday was no exception. There was nothing untoward to report after the early course inspection, apart from  increasing amounts of sweet chestnuts on the ground!

As ever, a massive thank you to the 26 volunteers who gave their time to enable the event to go ahead.  If you've never seen parkrun from the perspective of a volunteer, please do give it a go once or twice a year.  It's a lot of fun, you'll be hugely appreciated and it'll make the job of filling the roster week in and week out much easier.  A special shout out to Martin BELL, who doesn't even currently live in the UK, but who spends hours each week making sure we have enough volunteers to put the event on safely.

There were plenty of 'firsts' today.  A total of 38 runners took part at Clumber for the first time.  Here they are getting the lowdown from Mark MANLEY at the briefing for new runners.

Attending his first ever parkrun, and cajoled into volunteering by Barry MERCER, Josh  was somewhat bemused by it all, but nevertheless did a great job on barcode scanning duty.

Also enjoying his first parkrun, Adam CLARKE joined his wife Natalie for her second run at Clumber, having both flown all the way from Alabama to be with us.

It was all the 'C's in the first three this week, with Craig CARTER, Craig WOLSTENHOLME and Callum McBREARTY all finishing in under 19:00 minutes.

Don't forget that we'll be having a Halloween themed fancy dress at the end of the month.  Also, if you want to take part in the fantastic Worksop Halloween Half Marathon,  which passes through Clumber Park, get your entry in as soon as possible as it's nearly sold out.

parkrun 353 2nd October

Welcome back my friends
To the show that never ends.
We're so glad you could attend!
Come and walk! Come and jog! Come and run!

Another dry yet damp Saturday at the National Trust Clumber Park saw us run parkrun No.353.  As our Run Director Mark mentioned in the briefing Clumber Park is a multi-terrain course in a natural environment which may mean puddles, twiggs and chestnuts on the floor or even falling form the trees!!!

The weather has changed from our normal sun drenched parkrun as we approach autumn and the holiday season passes.  We still had 225 runners supported by 24 fantastic voluteers.  Why not put your name down to volunteer?  We have lots of roles on a Saturday morning and you will be given lots of help and support, just like our finish token volunteers Allan and Jane...

IMG_8818

Our first three runners this week were Richard, James and Callum who all beat the 20minute barrier...

IMG_8819

This was the first time we used the Volunteer barcode scanning and timing apps is colder weather and not perfect conditions.  We noticed a couple of little glitches and learnt a lot, this may mean a few changes in Central Bark over coffee whilst processing the results but the timings are all good even though your number / token may have changed...

Kate Thronloe, Marshal 3, celebrated her 50th...time volunteering today and lots of runner congratulated her on the way round, thank you Kate!  Niamh is also another volunteering stalwart who helped with barcode scanning today.

See you next week and don't forget to start planning your Halloween Fancy Dress!!!

We welcomed 284 people to the National Trust's Clumber Park this morning to our 351st parkrun.  Mark was todays Run Director who was joined by 28 volunteers...

There were 40 first timers to today along with some visitors too.  One lovely lady from Leeds made sure to say a special 'Thank You' to all todays volunteers, this is always nice to hear.  We always have lots of fun as a volunteer team, why not put your name down for October and give it a try; just look how happy Molly is in the background!!!

parkrun 350 28th August

Today we welcomed 301 runners and 26 fantastic volunteers to Clumber Park on a perfect late summer's morning.  The course was in great condition, which enabled 46 runners to record a new PB.

Looking perfect in pink, volunteers Nidge, Lee-Anne and Sam have had their birthdays this week (obviously they're not triplets). Rather than go out partying, they all celebrated by joining their many friends at parkrun.
IMG_20210828_084030

Some impressive times were recorded, with George ROWLAND passing the post as the first finisher for the second week running in 16:49.  Not far behind was Ben HARRIS, who was aiming for a sub 17:00 and achieved this by recording a time of 16:56.  Ben holds the record for the most first finishes at Clumber, and has topped the results table a whopping 62 times.  Tom Borrowdale returned to Clumber for the 8th time out of his 129 parkruns and set a new PB of 17:30.  In another fantastic time of 19:58,  Anna was once again the first lady to finish, having been so for 50 out of her 62 parkruns!

Laura ROBINSON has completed 223 parkruns the length and breadth of the country. Today she celebrated her 100th different location with her run at Clumber.  I'm sure this was her favourite!

We were also joined today by another prolific parkrun tourist who ran at our first event at Clumber in 2013.  Dave John WILLIAMSON is a veteran of parkrun, having completed 567 events, often as a pacer and has also gained over 450 volunteer credits.  Although he's run at many different events, he was, of course, very complimentary about Clumber!

Congratulations to Kula DYSON - it was easy to guess how many runs she was celebrating today.

IMG-20210828-WA0003

Please make a note that we have cancelled two events at the end of September, due to other large events being held in the park.  The Festival of Food and Drink takes place on the weekend of the 18th and 19th September, followed by Race for Life Pretty Muddy, 3k, 5k and 10k on the 25th and 26th.

Second week back at Clumber Park and it felt like a normal sunny parkrun Saturday...

The volunteers arrived nice and early, taking advantage of the voluteers car park which everyone has respected so well, thank you. Nia Arthur arrived with 'River' who was keen to register attendance at the volunteer hut!
River

After the briefings Run Director Mark got the start off on time (as usual!!!) only for Andrew Beastall to return 18:15 later to cross the new finish line first this week.
Winner

If you have not attended our new look parkrun yet we have moved the finish to the otherside of the path to allow for more space for the finish funnel and barcode/app scanners.
Funnel

Whilst we cannot mention milestones in the briefing we can add them to the run report and there were a few this week. Most noticeable, mainly because of his balloons, was Paul Wilde who completed his 250th parkrun today, congratulations Paul. Ian Gibson also hit a milestone today hitting 100! Two other firsts also worth mentioning were Anna Shipman who completed her first parkrun today as did Eleanor Blackwell aged 6yrs old (Ian's granddaughter!!!)
Paul Wilde

We are looking for volunteers for next week so please let us know if you can help out. Sam and Allan both volunteered for the first time this week and enjoyed it that much they have put their names down for next week too!. See you then...

parkrun 345 24th July

We're back!

After a pause of 71 weeks we finally got back together and did a parkrun. The weather was perfect and the course was absolutely beautiful.

We had a few changes to the course and procedures as we follow the Covid framework. I'd like to say a big thank you to the vast majority who followed the guidelines, gave respect to fellow parkrun participants and to the volunteers. It is important that we follow the guidelines to ensure we can continue to hold our event.

First back today was Liam Vandamme with a time of 17:05, well done on an excellent time Liam. Id also like to mention a couple of local juniors, Anna who came in 6th at 19:25 and Euan who had a PB at 21:08. Euan has halved his time since he started coming to parkrun, a big well done to you both.

Unfortunately under the current guidelines we aren't able to mention Milestones, Birthdays or Visitors at the briefing but if you send them into us on email or our facebook page we can give you a mention here!

Today was Sarah Pearson's 100th parkrun. Imagine getting to 99 and then having to wait 71 weeks! Sarah celebrated by running around with some very large balloons

6EECDB44-8483-4EBD-BA7F-64310C19148E

Today marked a milestone for our very own Steve Hazelhurst. It was Steves 25th volunteer session for which we are really grateful. It was also Fiona Gibsons birthday which she kindly spent with us sorting the unscanable barcodes, thank you and Happy Birthday Fiona.

Richard Thomson came along today to celebrate his retirement. After 31 years with the Fire Service he has hung up his hose and decided to take it easy, here he is with his very proud Son James and his friend Mick Parrot.

A really big thank you to all of our volunteers this week, they are the Priceless People in Pink, we couldn't do this without you. We really appreciate the way you all embraced the changes and the new technology. Volunteering is so rewarding and lots of fun, if you can help us out in the coming weeks please drop us an email or message us on facebook.

Id like to thank Sally for all her hard work as Event Director. Very few people see the work that goes on behind the scenes to bring back these events, Sally has been central to the successful return this week and broke her holiday to come back to make sure I didn't tell any jokes in the briefing! Its also great for us to welcome Richard Hind and Lee-Anne Manley as new Run Directors in the core team, you'll get to meet them both over the next few weeks.

And finally.... Mark Crossley is Run Director next week and needs Volunteers! here he is explaining the new Volunteer App to Fred, one our favourite regulars. In return Fred gave Mark some advice on hair styling! Mark is looking forward to seeing you all next week, lets hope he manages to sort out the PA system before then!

Thanks for coming back this week, it was a blast!
