parkrunner profile – Mark Taylor

How did you get started at parkrun?
I started my parkrun journey in Harrogate about five years ago. I had not long completed the NHS couch-to-5k by myself and started running with a friend of mine who was doing parkrun; he suggested I come along as it was a good way of improving (after all, it is free, weekly & timed!) and I would know a few people there as well to chat to. The rest, as they say, is history. I have now run 100+ parkruns at 21 different parkrun locations across the country, plus volunteered on over 50 other occasions as well. Little did I anticipate in those early days that I would end up as one of the team of Run Directors, initially at Harrogate and now at Conyngham Hall.

What does parkrun mean to you?
parkrun has definitely contributed to my love of running but as the nature of that has changed over the years, so has my view of parkrun. It has gone from that initial, self-focussed ‘how to be a better runner’ to more of a community focus… in a running context. To me, first & foremost, people matter; so inevitably parkrun has become far more about the people and less about the running, although that is still a big part of it for me. It’s about friendships old & new, the parkrun & local communities and the positivity, openness and inclusivity of the whole thing. I still get inspired by the age range of people taking part, from the youngest of juniors up to those in their 70s+, all mixing and encouraging each other on… brilliant! And as a bonus, I get to visit other parkruns across the country when I can, enjoying the different nuances of character each one has. Oh and the coffee, I mustn’t forget the coffee!! Hmmmm coffee…..

Do you have a favourite volunteering role?
Aside from the expected RD answer, I find myself going back to Barcode Scanning quite a bit. I think it’s a privilege seeing such a variety of people when they’ve given it their all and finished; you can see the look of accomplishment in people’s eyes. Love it.

What did you do on Saturday instead of parkrun?
Apparently, there is a Saturday morning outside of parkrun. I didn’t believe it myself but have now found it to be true (not as good though)! I make sure I get at least a 5k run in, sometime, somewhere away from any parkrun course. I try to do so at 9am but the lure of the lie-in is strong in this one! I must admit to enjoying not having to get over St. Arbeck railway crossing before the red lights of the barrier start flashing, in time for Conyngham set up at 7:35-ish; I wasn’t always successful.

Do you have an amusing/odd/wonderful parkrun anecdote to relate?
You mean apart from being late for set up because I am stuck at St Arbeck crossing…? On only my 2nd occasion Run Directing at Harrogate, we had a record number of people (500+), followed by discovering the finishing tokens were out of sequence on the holder but having them put back in order very rapidly by Sean Brennan & others before the first runner appeared, followed by getting interviewed for the With Me Now podcast about parkrun, followed by stopwatch problems meaning an “interesting” set of downloads to put the results together from. I wouldn’t have managed it without the wonderful Sean, Caroline Rainbow and others. It was a real baptism of fire that day but, whilst being a near vertical learning curve, it was a great demonstration of the teamwork you find within any parkrun core team.

Do you have a favourite parkrun photo?
The favourite photo is from the inaugural Conyngham Hall parkrun, immediately prior to the 1st run brief & 1st start.

CHpr inaugural

A lot of work had been put in by so many people (especially Linda!) and to finally have our own parkrun up and running in Knaresborough was a very special moment.

The second is the “oh £$%*” moment when the tokens were found to be out of sequence..


The third is one of the founding principles of parkrun – a drink in the café afterwards with friends.



parkrunner profile – Donna Tucker

I started parkrun in 2013 having lost quite a bit of weight and wanting to start exercising without joining an intimidating, expensive gym. A friend took me along to Black Park parkrun near where I lived at the time and I was hooked from the very start. I stopped twice on my first, stopped once on my second and cried on my third when I did the whole course without stopping at all.

When I moved home, my nearest parkrun was the first thing I found and I went the day after relocating South to North, just for something relatively ‘normal’. I have met so many new friends through parkrun and I have kept in touch with them since being back in Harrogate. I love the parkrun community, the sense of togetherness and the support whether you are 1st or 101st.

I don’t volunteer often as I prefer to run but I have pledged this year to volunteer once a month. I like scanning and congratulating everyone but I love token sorting! It plays to my OCD!

My favourite parkrun moment was my 100th at Fountains Abbey when my Southern buddies came up to celebrate it with me. They drove up on the Friday night and drove straight back down afterwards. I really appreciated them making the effort just for me.

Saturday is parkrun day. It sets me up for the day. I’m so glad I started it, and so pleased I have been able to beat others to join in too.

And now we have international woman of intrigue, Joanne Welling. (In the valley behind Jo is the equator line.)


How did you get started at parkrun?

Between 1998-9 while living in Quito, Ecuador, I somehow managed to have 3 children in 2 years. I know some of you die-hard pram-pushers will call me soft, but with an Ecuadorian mountain-guide partner who was usually away scaling the Andes, it took me a good 14 years after becoming a mum to find the time to exercise. By then I was around 10 kilos overweight and on the verge of depression. The mantras from the Run Fat B!tch audiobook drove me to the park each morning after dropping 3 stroppy teens off at high-school for a 7.10am start. Then it was just me, the eucalyptus trees and my iPod: it doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop. At first, I shuffled along the sandy paths for 3 tunes max. Soon I could jog along to 5 tracks, then 7, then 9. Pounds dropped off and my head cleared (somewhat - I was still single mum to 3 teens at this point, remember); eventually 45 mins. of actual running plus 15 mins. stretching in the bright morning sunshine set me up for the day, kept me sane and became the keystone for that segment of my life.

What´s that you say?  It´s not an actual parkrun if there’s no RD, no official course, no barcode? Well, as far as I can tell, even now the nearest official parkrun route to Quito is a 14-hour flight + 3 connections away, so please pardon me the transgression. I´m guessing my first 250 runs came into the category of unchartered Freedom runs where I DID forget my barcode, but at least I was in an actual park! Thanks to Danny Baker´s podcast which I listened to avidly back then, I felt as much a part of the parkrun community as any one of you, though that didn’t stop my sister, Claire (a Roundhay Runner), from pulling my leg for being a total parkrun geek when I finally clocked my first - and fastest ever – official time of 28:13 in August of 2015.


What does parkrun mean to you?

As I´m only back in Yorkshire once in a while, it´s a chance to meet people in Knaresborough (near Mum’s) and Chapel Allerton (near Claire’s). Running has hoiked me back from obesity, depression and isolation so it´s heartening to run alongside other people with similar stories or struggles. While I’m still around during Lockdown, I’m running Nidd Gorge regularly for exercise and sanity. I love the woods, the water and the steep winding paths. Once I´m back in Quito, I’ll keep an eye on parkrun happenings through the email updates so I can blend back in seamlessly on my next UK visit.


Do you have a favourite volunteering role?

I love being the marshal across the bridge at Conyngham Hall. You have people coming at you from three different directions which is a little mad at times, but they all pass you six times, so you get a really good feel for how the morning’s run is treating everyone. Besides, you´re only having to tell them all to “Stay Left!” so your right arm gets a good workout, which takes care of my physiotherapy session for the day – win-win, innit?


What did you do on Saturday instead of parkrun?

TBH I´ve lost track of the days of the week during lockdown. I´m Staying Home with mum and my daughter, Tamia. We’ll often emerge for a late brekky and a board- or card-game at the weekend, having had a lie-in and catch up with news, friends and good books from the comfort of bed. We play backgammon for points on the doubling dice and the loser has to pay into a piggy bank for  As such, Mum says she can´t afford to have us here much longer, and I’m not currently able to travel back to Ecuador, so if anyone’s looking for a Lockdown room-mate, please get in touch!


Do you have an amusing/odd/wonderful parkrun anecdote to relate?

Tami´s twin sister, Zara, ran the 2nd ever Conyngham Hall parkrun with you all, but 2½ years previously, she had run against me at Preston Park in Brighton (where I was born and raised). It was a real case of ´the tortoise and the hare´. She bounded off on her long legs, with her hair streaming behind her looking every bit like the BFG crossing the countryside in few effortless strides. I sighed and just did my thing of putting one foot in front of another again and again and again. Whenever she stopped for a breather, I´d overtake her temporarily, which happened 3 or 4 times over the course. She was a couple of hundred metres behind me on the home-straight and had intended to sprint past and pip me at the post but came in a few sorry steps behind me. A real victory for middle-aged mums, I feel.


Do you have a favourite parkrun photo?

I have lots! This one captures my daughter Zara, her friend Fernanda, my sister Claire and my son Tom (aka The Visiting Ecuadorians) crossing the bridge at Conyngham Hall last July when I was marshalling (and accidentally set off the walkie-talkie alarm - sorry Mark!)

Fer Zara Claire and Tom

Next we have Claire and Zara getting ready to run in onesies to support Type 1 Diabetes Reseach, one of Claire´s passions.  When Zara was doing her BTEC at Harrogate High School, two things that were guaranteed to save her from becoming too homesick were sport and time with her lovely aunty Claire.


Then  International Womens´ Day at Conyngham Hall. Claire, Tami and I all ran, while mum volunteered as marshal. It was my first timed run since a slipped disc last summer, so I  was very happy to manage 5k perfectly OK that day.



Lastly, Jo has added a question of her own for you all.

What’s your wish for (CH) parkrun after the COVID-19 crisis ends?

I would like to get the crown* for Best Corona Improver, i.e. last parkrun time before lockdown divided by first parkrun time after lockdown on the same course, so as to give a % ratio. I´m aiming for 31:56 / 29:30, so 1916 seconds / 1770 = 108%.  I´m not sure how scientifically sound that maths is, but it appeals to my parkrun geekiness - and maybe to yours too? Anyone fancy a challenge?

* it does indeed need to be a crown not a medal nor any other kind of prize because crown in Spanish as spoken in Ecuador is…. you guessed it…. corona!


Non run report week 3 – missing the course

I should have been RD last Saturday. Since we started Conyngham Hall parkrun back in May last year, I have been looking forward to running the course in the Spring, and particularly getting back to the A course and running through the hedge at the bottom of muddy bank when the blossom is out.

Well that blossom is now out, the course is dry so we'd be back on the A course and beautiful though it was to run through it in social running isolation earlier this week, it made me sad that everyone and our visitors would not be experiencing it together.

Saturday dawned a gorgeous Spring morning and I could just picture the scene as we all arrived at the farm ruins. Blue sky, chit chat as we meet our friends and welcome people who are new. The feel of togetherness as we all walk to the start (back at the bottom of the slope since this is the A course). The thrill of the 'off' and the marvelling at the speedsters. Fewer trail shoes in evidence since not needed. The camaraderie of all as we support each other to complete the 5k, the pride at seeing those who have struggled and yet succeeded and cheering them across the finish line. Getting our barcodes scanned and thanking the volunteers.

The companionship of chatting afterwards, of collating all the kit. Of a troupe of us carrying it to the car of whoever is RD next week, then heading off to The Black Mulberry for some very welcome post parkrun park faff and results processing. The pleasure of an arriving coffee and the finger licking goodness of a gooey egg leaking out of a sandwich.

Putting order back in the world by sorting the tokens, watching the promenade outside the window along Waterside and feeling pride that this is our town, our parkrun, our community.

But it wasn't to be. The lost parkrun weeks continue, and while we all know that is has to be the case, and we don't want it any other way since we want to beat this virus, I do hope that it's not too long before we are gathering at the farm, exchanging news in person and hearing the hub-bub and laughter set among the backdrop of the running river and the singing birds.

Stay safe everyone, keep that distance, and savour the fact we can still get out and exercise in this beautiful place we call home.

Up next, we have the always cheery Ruth Mann (super RD, uber volunteer, current looker-after of the kit) responding to our request for parkrunner profiles

How did you get started at parkrun? 
September 2017 and Andy Deighton kept talking about this running event on the stray on a Saturday morning that anyone could do. I couldn't run the length of myself and decided to go along with Louise Buck and walk it. Persuaded Dave to join us too. Lou and I walked the first week and then started working up to running between two trees, then three trees until we could run a whole side of the square (magic moment!). At that point we joined Knaresborough striders for the 2018 'Zero to Hero' group and worked our way up to actually running the whole 5k!

What does parkrun mean to you?
It is a fabulous start to the weekend and something I very much look forward to every week come hail, snow or shine. I don't mind whether I am volunteering or running. It is a fantastic group of people all out to have fun and support each other. I love catching up with everyone and seeing just how much everyone improves week on week.

Do you have a favourite volunteering role?
I like all of the roles and am happy doing any of them. Funnel manager really satisfies the science geek in me that likes noting numbers and cross referencing, mind you.

What did you do on Saturday instead of parkrun?
Milly and I did a parkrun replacement around Nidd Gorge (no Dave as broken!). Missing parkrun, but at least we can still run.

Do you have an amusing/odd/wonderful parkrun anecdote to relate?
One Saturday morning, this eejit was run director and hadn't charged the laptop, the plug didn't work in the café, barcode scanning had a few glitches and after spending 2 hours sorting all the results out (with the fabulous Linda Dodsworth) sent the file to the test system and not the live one!  And we didn't get any breakfast either.........

Do you have a favourite parkrun photo?
I have two absolute favourite pictures. One is with Lizzie Medwell in a picture taken by Philip Bland. The smiles just show how good parkrun makes you feel! The other is a very proud Mummy moment when Shannon gave the briefing for the very first time in preparation for the young persons take over in the very near future, we hope.

parkrunner profile – Pete Noble

Pete was the first to reply to our request for info about all your lovely parkrun stories

How did you get started at parkrun?
Started at parkrun in May 2019 at the inaugural Conyngham Hall event. Had heard of parkrun, but due to other commitments (kids football etc..) on a Saturday morning had never been able to attend.
What does parkrun mean to you?
I love the community.  It is so nice to feel part of something bigger.  Volunteering is one of the best parts, along with the bacon butty in The Black Mulberry!  When we visited Wetherby recently, my son (James) commented that it felt weird not having a job!  Also like the little games you can play, like Alphabeteer etc. We go away in our caravan as often as we can and now the first question is where is the nearest parkrun and does it get us another letter.  We are all in our 30s (runs, not ages!) and we are hoping to get our 50 all on the same day.
Do you have a favourite volunteering role?
Favourite role is Pre-event setup.  So nice to be at Conyngham nice and early, hearing the birds etc.  Also nice to be able to spend 30 mins or so just chatting to my son as we walk round placing cones!  And you can still do the run!
What did you do on Saturday instead of parkrun?
Last Saturday we went to Swinsty to do a parkrun replacement.  Turns out most of North Yorkshire also thought that Swinsty would be quiet!  Ooops!
Do you have an amusing/odd/wonderful parkrun anecdote to relate?
When we did the Blackpool parkrun on New Year's Day, wearing our Striders vests, we were in the queue for scanning when a very nice lady asked us if we knew her daughter who lives in Knaresborough.  Turns out it was our very own Linda Dodsworth's mum!!  We also went to The Tees Barrage for a weekend and bumped into another RD, Ruth and Dave! Small world!!
Pete also sent in his favourite parkrun photo and asks us to guess where it is!

Non parkrun report #1 – the lost parkrunners

So an odd Saturday morning for us parkrunners. No parkrun. The need to socially distance. A feeling of loss. What did we do? [Note, this was before the stricter guidance came into force.]

parkrun UK put on a quiz at 9am, so some of us took part in that. An impressive 10/15 for Sarah Glover and an unimpressive 6/15 from parkrun obsessive Linda Dodsworth, obviously so much more to learn. Favourite question was:

Q: Who has the faster average finish time, parkrunners with the surname 'Trott', 'Quick' or 'Canter'?

A: At the end of this non run report...

parkrun say they plan to do something like this at 9am each Sat so follow parkrun UK on facebook and we'll also aim to share their updates as we see them.

Super RD Ruth Mann had the kit and 'staged' a parkrun in their back garden :-)


Note: Hubby Dave Sinton later went a run in Nidd Gorge. If you know Dave, you'll have to ask him what the result of that was...

Steve Dodsworth who managed to squeeze in parkrun 250 before the shut down, got his shirt during the week. He's currently trying to work out if he was the last person in the world to achieve the 250 milestone since he was Tail Walker and finished in a time of 1:06:07. He worked out Namibia and South Africa were the other countries outside the UK who could have a time later than him. 4 parkrun results checked manually for Namibia and no 250 milestones found for that day, then South Africa.... there are a lot of parkruns in South Africa.... too many to look through. He's since found out 166 parkrunners joined the 250 club that day worldwide, so all he has to do :-) is look at each of their times individually. Hmm, we'll ask for updates each week to see how his checking is getting on.


A big wave to those who let us know they went for runs. The Coopers put on their tops and ran from their doorstep with Chris acting as Tail Walker, getting in some volunteering too. The Dodsworths ran a 5k from their doorstep (they set off 4 mins apart to give that extra impetus to speedy times, we can report Linda got caught at the 4k point and Steve recorded a sub 23 min 5k which he was happy with). Moira McTague ran a solo run in Nidderdale, Joanne Welling ran the Nidd Gorge. Plenty of post non parkrun coffee and refreshments were had. A big thank you to all for choosing not to do a freedom run on our route, ourselves and parkrun UK greatly appreciate that.


Whilst we're not parkrunning, please can you opt in to receiving volunteer emails from us. We're going to do a series of profiles and stories during these non parkrun weeks and we'll be using the volunteer email list to send out requests. To opt-in

1. Find a (Conyngham Hall) results email

2. Click on 'Volunteer Opt-in' (big orange button about half way down the email)

3. Click on 'Yes subscribe me'  (If you're looking at a result from a different parkrun, at this point click on 'parkrun profile', then 'email options' and opt in/out to various parkruns.)

Thank you.

Lastly, keen to help out while parkrun is cancelled, our portable defib (provided by Knaresborough Lions and put in place by Restart Yorkshire) asked if they could be of any use elsewhere. They are currently allowing another unit to get serviced without loss of defib coverage so if your daily exercise takes you past Chain Lane Community Centre, please wave hello, or shout 'thank you volunteer!' as you go by, but maybe only if no-one will hear you :-)



That's all for now folks. Stay safe.

parkrun quiz answer: Trott





Any baby clothes for a good cause?

One of our regular volunteers over the last few months is returning to Ecuador where she has lived for the last 20 years. She wants to take back baby clothes for a family she knows over there who need any help we can give. If you have any baby clothes which are no longer required then please consider bringing them along either this Sat (14th) or next Sat (21st March). For age 1mth - 12mths, clean and in good condition, unisex or for a boy. Many thanks.


Conyngham Hall parkrun #39 – A series of unfortunate incidents……

International Women's Day parkrun started off as normal as any other parkrun. We had lots of parkrunners wearing purple in support of #IWDparkrun and our selfie frame was a great attraction. Sarah Gore definitely was the purpliest of purple runners!

purpliest SG

After our briefing we tried to fit all 150 walkers/joggers and runners into our selfie frame. Once photographed, we moved up to our start line and parkrun started without incident.


That is were the 'normal' parkrun ended and the series of unfortunate incidents started. One of our barcode scanners struggled with scanning, leaving a few glitches in our results. Anyway, with our excellent funnel manager and chief rogue result sorter-outer, Linda Dodsworth, on the case, we knew it would all be fine. Therefore, we welcomed home our first lady on #IWDparkrun, Amelie Aylesbury; and this girl most definitely can!

1st lady

Just to prove these blokes can too, Stephen Morland, Tom Kilmurray and James Wright were the first three runners home this weekend.

1st men

And not to be outdone, we captured the first barkrunner home too. Fantastic result on four little legs.


As our parkrunners continued to come home, our expert finish token volunteer, Shannon Sinton, noticed a few tokens issued in the wrong order and quickly informed the funnel manager

At the same time, a young man slipped on the gravel and cut his knee. Break out the first aid kit! After a little clean up and plaster application, super trooper George Preece continued and finished parkrun perfectly.

With the few issues around scanning and token mix up, the run director and funnel manager went to a quiet room to check through all results manually to make sure they were all accurate. Once completed, results were sent and laptop clicked shut. However, when no results appeared, it became obvious something was amiss. On checking, it turned out the run director had sent the results to a test system and not the live one! Cue second round of sorting out the glitches in the results and final correct posting to the live system. Oh, what a morning!

The stats:

This week 150 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 19 volunteers:

Lizzie MEDWELL • Thomas WATSON • Stephen MORRIS • Catherine MORLAND • Nicola CARTER • Linda DODSWORTH • Spike BROWNLEES • Jackie KNIGHT • Emma KILMURRAY • Ruth MANN • David SINTON • Shannon SINTON • Janet ECCLES • Sarah NOBLE • James NOBLE • Kathryn LARWOOD • Jackie REED • John DICKSON • Hilary WELLING

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Conyngham Hall parkrun Results Page.

The male record is held by Reece DALTON who recorded a time of 17:18 on 29th June 2019 (event number 6).
The female record is held by Sophie WOOD who recorded a time of 19:42 on 1st January 2020 (event number 31).
The Age Grade course record is held by Geoffrey HOWARD who recorded 80.81% (23:27) on 18th May 2019 (event number 1).

Conyngham Hall parkrun started on 18th May 2019. Since then 2,484 participants have completed 5,916 parkruns covering a total distance of 29,580 km, including 964 new Personal Bests. A total of 239 individuals have volunteered 814 times.

So you have got to the bottom of the stats then. After such as eventful parkrun, the run director thanks everyone for their patience in waiting for their results yesterday. At least we can be happy they are accurate!


Welcoming our visitors – event #38

One of the most heartening things about hosting a parkrun is providing a warm welcome to visitors from far and wide. Whether it’s parkrun tourists, world travellers or families visiting a local relative, there’s never a week when we’re not joined by some fine folk from a further afield. This week was no exception, as we welcomed participants from Avon Valley, Leigh-on-Sea, Huntingdon, Milton Keynes, Keighley, Barnsley, Scunthorpe, Walsall, Milnthorpe, Prestwich, Farsley, Skipton and York to name but a few!

Our lovely parkrunners head upwards on their second circuit

As a relatively ‘new’ parkrun, we’re also seeing lots of local folk coming along to try out our course for the first time – and this took a boost this week with the unfortunate postponement of the excellent Fountains Abbey parkrun, many of whose regulars joined us, along with a number from the flooded Wetherby event. As a result, nearly a third of our field were with us for the first time – amazing! We hope that you will return to visit us again in future!

Beneath the busy bridge, the River Nidd roared in appreciation!

Bringing some welcome 'sunshine' to our event were the 47 yellow vests of Nidd
Valley Road Runners, who had relocated from Wetherby to test themselves around our event on the edge of Knaresborough.

We were fortunate that a couple of days of respite from the recent storms had given the course a chance to dry out and whilst still far from perfect, it offered a chance for 34 parkrunners to improve on their previous times around the circuit – impressive stuff!

Whilst the first little glimpses of Storm Dennis began to show at 9am, it didn’t dampen spirits and everyone did well to cope with conditions which literally changed with each step. As for the ever-dampening finish area, the words of Paul Simon seem apt: “…you know, the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away…”

One-Five-Two... where are you?

One-Five-Two... where are you?

As 220 satisfied parkrunners headed home to shelter from the incoming storm, they did so having ticked off their walks, jogs and runs for the day and our fantastic team of volunteers adjourned to process results and count tokens. On that note, we do have one token currently missing… if you collected token 152, or perhaps picked it up around the site, please would you let us know and we will reunite it with its friends.

This week 220 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 63 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:

Thomas WATSON • Caroline DICKSON • Stephen MORLAND • Catherine MORLAND • Libby BRENNAN • Nicola CARTER • Alex GIBSON • Linda DODSWORTH • Suzy WOOD • Joanne WELLING • Jackie KNIGHT • Isaac MORLAND • Jackie REED • Spike BROWNLEES • Kevin MILLAR • Tamia AVILA • John DICKSON
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Conyngham Hall parkrun Results Page.
The male record is held by Reece DALTON who recorded a time of 17:18 on 29th June 2019 (event number 6).
The female record is held by Sophie WOOD who recorded a time of 19:42 on 1st January 2020 (event number 31).
The Age Grade course record is held by Geoffrey HOWARD who recorded 80.81% (23:27) on 18th May 2019 (event number 1).
Conyngham Hall parkrun started on 18th May 2019. Since then 2,452 participants have completed 5,766 parkruns covering a total distance of 28,830 km, including 930 new Personal Bests. A total of 237 individuals have volunteered 794 times.

So, you made it to the bottom. Maybe you really love statistics, in which case it won’t have escaped your attention that at our next event we should pass the 2,500 mark for participants and in the next few weeks we should smash past 30,000km!
