Event 465 – 13th November 2021

What a beautiful morning it was to run around Colwick Park for our 465th parkrun.

465 - encouraging

Our fantastic team of volunteers did a great job, starting with a bit of cross-training on the Parkrun app for those of us tackling a new role:

  • One of the younger members of the team learning how to scan the bar codes:

Event 464 – 6th November 2021

At event 464 we welcomed 238 parkunners to Colwick parkrun. 27 of those were 'first timers at Colwick' and four were brand new to parkrun. Welcome to our world - Sam, Elliott, Joe and Tara.


During the pre-event briefing we let everyone know that Christmas jumper parkrunday will be on 18th December... that we won't be running on Christmas Day... and that we will be running at 9am on New Year's Day.

Maureen (who did our Event Day Course Check today) has already confirmed that she'll be volunteering on New Year's Day with her hot water bottle so do please consider joining her. We have six people on the roster already and it's a great way to see in the New Year!


Other lovely snippets this morning... a family who missed out on their 'Race of Life' due to COVID did their 5k with us instead spurred on by numerous supporters...


We reunited a set of car keys with their rightful owner before setting everyone off this morning. The owner was so grateful that he waited until Phil - finder of the keys - had crossed the finish line to shake his hand and thank him personally. How lovely is that!


We were delighted to have six tail walkers plus Iris's new guide dog Ruby doing her first parkrun...


It was lovely to see some familiar faces from the early years back with us this morning including the always glamorous Param...


And our lovely mate Alison, Event Director of Beeston parkrun, gave us the thumbs up on tour...


We welcomed nine people into the new 25 Club. Congratulations to Jonny, Ian, Dominic, Richard, Natasha, Mary, Tara and Liza & Alison (pictured). Alan (pictured) ran his 100th parkrun too. Congratulations to you all.

In this week's parkrun bingo volunteer game Helen went low with a guess of 178... and Tony went hight with a guess of 240 and everyone else went in between. So Tony takes the win.

Once again a smorgasbord of parkrun joy!

The only damper on the morning was an email we received later saying that one of our participants had verbally abused him en route. We have been here for 10+ years and have rarely had any issues with other park users during that time. We have sent our apologies but please let us know if you witnessed anything, thank you. We really do want to exist in harmony.

Back to the positive stuff...
