Event number 203
7th March 2020

Working with ‘this girl can’ parkrun celebrated international women’s day today, with focused encouragement on female participation both in running and volunteering, just taking part in parkrun on a Saturday. Dalby Forest has a really high level of female participation but we can always do more to encourage all runners, of any ability, gender or ethnicity and event director Emma did a fantastic brief about parkrun inclusivity!

This week 257 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 47 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

126 of those runners and 25 volunteers were women on the day (111 men ran), and we had 47 first timers, so the campaign was really worth while.

The event was made possible by 29 volunteers:

Marion BETS • Sharon HOUGHTON • Amanda WELBURN-SMITH • Julie BROOK-WALKER • Alison WILES • Nicola WISE • Dean WISE • Martyn WARWICK • Laura MOISEY-SMITH • Emma BINNERSLEY • G. Sydney YOUNGSON • Kelly JONES • Joss WEBSTER • Rob NEWTON • Sue THOMASON • Tilly WELBURN-SMITH • Albie N • Sue LAKIN • Nicky SCOTT • Lisa ADAMS • Lucy HINCHLIFFE • Gail DENNEY • Sophie DENNEY • Claire YATES • Rachel NEWTON • Demelza TRIFFITT • Carys YATES • Kaye JONES • Rosamond HAYNES

Run report by Abbie from York:

The one where we ran the first ever leap year parkrun.

This week I ran my 67th parkrun and this run report knocks up my 21st volunteer credit. Me and two of my running pals made the journey from York to enjoy Dalby Forest’s beautiful parkrun on the first ever leap year parkrun day - 29th February.

Storms Ciara, Dennis and Jorge have made running conditions a little difficult over the month of February and we saw many local parkrun cancellations this weekend due to flooding and winds. Thankfully the streams of Dalby weren’t torrents and the trees kept us sheltered from the gusts. The rain kept away for the majority of the run and we managed to enjoy mostly calm conditions.

So how can I describe Dalby Forest parkrun? The buzz at the beginning before the run was friendly as always, the run director had a very impressive bounding voice giving us the heads up about the course and giving shout outs to tourists and first timers. After setting off, the first 2km are mostly downhill through gravelly trails surrounded by trees, there’s a few small inclines and the second half is mostly flat. My favourite part is a small path through younger trees then over a bridge and past a stream. It’s an invigorating run through one of Yorkshire’s most beautiful settings, we are lucky that our local parkrun tourist spots from York include Dalby Forest, Fountains Abbey and Castle Howard.

There are some interesting Strava segments throughout the run; ‘Lions Tigers and Gruffalos’ being my favourite and I can totally relate to ‘The long drag back’ as that last 1-2km can feel much longer than it actually is! It’s always great to see a photographer at a parkrun and I love that he sits at the end waiting for the participants to climb that last little hill, seeing their faces of delight vs angst pass him by.

Thank you for letting us join your first ever leap day run, maybe see you all in 28 years when we get the joy of parkrunning on 29th February once a again.

Many thanks to Abbie!
