Delamere parkrun number 360, 2nd October 2021

I’m excited to be doing the run report this week, as I’ve been a regular parkrun witness for some time now.  It was very quiet here in the forest during your lengthy hiatus, and it’s great that you’re back! 

I live in SQ1, where the start is. So the first thing I always witness is completion of the all-important course check.  Today, this was brilliantly done on wheels by Laurence Rudkin.  Then I spotted Marshal 3 and the Dog Start Marshal setting off down the path towards me on their way to their stations, and I quickly adopted my usual vantage point to continue my observations. 

The whole procedure is rather nutty.  As usual, the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed parkrunners (all with padded feet, like us!) hung around and chatted. Then the ones in purple (led by a chieftain - today it was Andy Martell) rounded them all up, released them, quickly built a pen to catch them when they came back, and then proceeded to let all 217 of them slip through this pen via holes at the far end.  This trapping policy is clearly flawed. Our cousins in town describe much better procedures that involve gates and food.

Saul and Susie (who live in SQ2 - the Bog of Doom) report that just after 9 o’clock the ones with dogs flew past, followed by the rest of the pack.  Those in the lead (constantly checking a band on their left wrists for some reason) were on turbo setting, and Saul and Susie had to break off from breakfast and hop out of the way pretty pronto.  My in-laws Seth and Samantha are lucky: they live in SQ5 - East Lakeside - so they’re only disturbed once as these parkrunners all steam past.  Sid and Spencer live in SQ4, near Charlie’s Point; as soon as they saw the terrier Alfie in position at 9am, they knew to keep out of the way.  In Sophie and Scott’s area (SQ7 - under Go Ape) the parkrunners are more spread out, so the interruptions to their to-ing and fro-ing are generally easier to navigate.  But Sam and Sindy and the sprogs have just moved to SQ4 (Gruffalo) and say that this morning it was pretty much a constant stream of happy parkrunners again - north then south - for nearly an hour!

We’re actually very happy for you all to use our home, and it was great to see various ages and scampering abilities out this morning, a bit like our scurry.  In spring/summer we’re all fairly relaxed and don’t mind scuttling off the path and out of the way.  But now it’s autumn, and we’re all very busy preparing for winter.  Our scatter-hoarding processes are in full swing, and we have to find ways of successfully handling these Saturday interruptions.  We often joke over a puddle about what you parkrunners would think if you suddenly had to step aside in the crisps and snacks aisle in the supermarket to make way for 300 or so of us lot charging through! 

One thing we always spot is the ‘tailwalker’, who never actually has a tail!  How they manage to balance is a grey area.  Their very important job is to ensure that all the parkrunners go back into the pen.  Today, this was ably done by Elizabeth Chantler.

My vantage point in SQ1 is on the home strait.  I counted you all in and I counted you all back, and this morning your pack included a visiting group from Wythenshawe (nice place – I have a second drey there), with one of their members - Owen - completing a very impressive run indeed.  Well done!  

It’s great to see you parkrunners enjoying a hop around the forest as much as we do.  Same time next week, I imagine!

This week 217 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 30 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 20 volunteers:
Laurence RUDKIN • Mark FLANAGAN • Steven GREGSON • Stephen DOUGHERTY • Elizabeth CHANTLER • Simon RICHARDS • Joanna CASE • A J HALFORD • Shaun LIGHTFOOT • Mark LIGHTFOOT • Charles TWISS • Andy MARTELL • Angela WRENCH • Oli WASHINGTON • Dawn APPLETON • Amy FARRINGTON • Noel FERGUSON • Nadine BAKER • John WALKLEY • Rosemary WASS

Delamere parkrun 322 – August 17th 2019

Saturday saw our 322nd parkrun with 304 runners turning out – so that’s a difference of 18. We still have never had the same number of runners as the run number. The closest we came was on September 8th last year when 278 runners made it to the 276th event.

 

We had only 9 first timers (with barcodes) one of whom was Segjii Kalenichyi who had come all the way from Kiev. There are no parkruns in Russia – yet. There was a trio of 100-run achievers, Luciana Fallows, Tina Denny and Jeff Hardman. Rebecca Permaine also ran her 50th run so you might have thought we’d have been awash with cakes – alas there were none.

 

We were a little late starting due to the surprise roadworks, but they will be gone by next week. Thank you for your attention during the run brief. It’s a necessary part of parkrun and we do try to keep it concise.

 

Strangely the summer holidays always see a dearth when it comes to volunteers – strange since we have no shortage of parkrunners! If you are a volunteer then spread the word – if you are not then please think about doing it at least once. If you run the course in under around 23 minutes then it’s possible to both run and volunteer as long as you let us know in advance.

 

This week we were grateful to our super volunteers: Rebecca BROADHURST, Joanna CASE, Mark FLANAGAN, Nicola GRACE, Chris GRIFFITHS, Eileen GRIFFITHS, A J HALFORD, Elizabeth HAMER, Grace HART, Catherine HILL, Nicola KIELY, Ian KING, Andy MARTELL, Les MAX, Eddy SMITH, Charles TWISS, Angela WRENCH.Nicola KIELY

Delamere parkrun #310, May 18th 2019


Another good morning for parkrun. The forest was looking great as always. Running conditions good too - cloudy, mild and no wind. It stayed dry too, which is always a bonus!

Our feathered friends were having quite a party in the mere as we passed by. I like to think they were offering their encouragement.

This morning’s announcements included a very Happy 12th Birthday to Eva PRICE, running her 47th parkrun today. Hope you have a great day.

Thanks went to Gareth BOYD for the Biscuits at the end, to help to promote his 24 hour Charity Run next week, around the walls in Chester, for the hospice of the Good Shepard. Good luck.

We had a massive 74 first time runners joining us today at Delamere, thank you for choosing to visit us, I hope you will be back again soon.

A couple of milestones to mention:

Matthew EDWARDS – gaining his 10-shirt. Well done.

And a BIG congratulations to Steve COLLIER, who was running his 300th. Our first home grown runner to reach this amazing total, I think!? Well done.

First to finish today was Craig CONNOR in 17.52

First Lady to finish was Claire THOMPSON in 21.45 Well done to you both.

Top of the Age Grade Rankings today was Catherine HILL with 77.46%

An honourable mention also to J15-17 runner, Luke HAMPSHIRE on his second place overall, with a very impressive 18.10 on his first visit to Delamere.

Finally I’ll mention Stacey TASKER who managed a PB on her 229th Run! Brilliant!

We had visitors from Cheltenham, Fylde, Stoke, Stone & the Wirral. Welcome to you all. Tourist Lucy Hampshire also wishes to thank the person who gave her £2 to park as she hadn’t realised there were parking charges.

A huge thank you as ever to all the volunteers who supported this event – we couldn’t do it without you!

See you again next week!

Delamere parkrun #304 March 30th 2019

Another great morning for a run through the forest – the volunteer team were treated to the accompaniment of a woodpecker as they hammered in the posts to set up the funnel.

10-run shirts today for Jack Heap and Miller Stevenson, and 100 up for Ian Hilditch – congratulations all three of you.

Random stat: Samantha Harry was our most experienced Delamere regular to get a PB, on her 158th run, nice work!

A warm welcome to tourists from as far as Ipswich, Stornaway, Bedford, Willesden, Nostell (near Wakefield) and Seaton Park (Devon), which pretty much covers all points of the compass.

The observant amongst you may have noticed the debut of our new token dispenser system which will hopefully ease the job of the finish token volunteer when it gets very busy.

Just a reminder if you are running with a dog, please keep it on a short lead for the duration of parkrun and start near the back of the field. This is guidance from head office and will reduce the risk of trip hazards for other runners and other users of the forest – we had a couple of instances today where this wasn’t followed, and one person fell.

As ever, we could not have a parkrun without our generous volunteers. There is always room for more, so why not give it a go? Here are today’s Hi-viz heroes

Delamere parkrun 298, 16th February 2019

Judging by the number of cars pouring into the car park at 8.40am (all carefully following the 15mph site rule, of course) our wonderful Delamere parkrun continues to be well-supported, with 400+ runners turning out for a lovely morning’s run/walk around the forest.

A few call-outs to Hannah Daniels earning her 10th shirt, Joseph and Charlie Larkin, and Matthew Scott getting 50s, and Keith Fairclough finally getting to his 100th shirt after a false start last week.

Congratulations to all from Run Sandymoor who either got a PB or ran Delamere for the first time – hope you enjoyed it and see you again soon!

This was the 298th parkrun at Delamere which means in 2 weeks’ time it will not only be our 300th but it is also our 6th birthday! We are encouraging fancy dress (anything goes) and cakes for this special event, celebrating over 76,000 runs, which could not have taken place without over 600 selfless people volunteering over 4000 times between them. Why would they do this?! Find out how much fun volunteering can be by emailing the Delamere office to join our happy gang!

Run Report – Event No. 226 16th September 2017

 

Definitely getting cooler in the forest now - with some of us hankering after that balmy Mediterranean weather.
However back to reality, at least it stayed dry this morning - if not a little wet underfoot in places.

We're ready for you!.....

No milestone shirts today, but looking at the numbers those t-shirt makers are going to be busy next week - watch this space!

Big welcome again to tourists, including Congleton, Conwy, Finsbury, Kingsbury Water, Perry Hall, Princes, Sheffield Hallam, St Andrews, Warrington, Wepre, Widnes & Wythenshawe....

...and especially Nicola Woods and Brian Black visiting from Australia. This is Nicola's 28th unique parkrun (she's never done the same one more than once!). Thank you for your kind comments and show of appreciation for our volunteers (seen here with serial volunteer Wendy Oakes):

Run Report – Event No. 225 9th September 2017

 

It doesn't happen very often at Delamere fortunately, but today was another of those very wet ones - rain falling for the duration of the run and plenty of puddles to dodge on the way round.

This did nothing to deter the 208 hardy souls who made it round the course, including 7 doing their first ever parkrun. At least you can console yourselves that it will only get better from now on - look forward to seeing you back again soon.

A big cheer went up for our volunteers at the pre-run announcements, and quite right too!
We are so grateful to those of you who give your time rain or shine to ensure this event can happen - thank you!!

Congratulations to Eve Lakin who joins the 50 Club today, and to Oscar Walton our latest member of the 10 Club.
Also a special shout to Geoff Fawkes making his 100th appearance at Delamere today.

Great to see another eclectic mix of tourists - this week including runners from Bushy, Cambridge, Congleton, Erddig, Ormskirk, Poole, Princes, Warrington, Wimpole Estate and Wormwood Scrubs. Welcome to you all.

Good luck to all parkrunners taking part in the North West Road Relays in Blackpool today, the Montane Trail Races here on Sunday, and any other events over the coming days.
See you all next week!

Run Report – Event No. 223 26th August 2017

 

Firstly, the inevitable Bank Holiday rain was nowhere to be seen - all 329 runners enjoyed a gorgeous sunny morning.

Secondly we had probably the most experienced field ever seen at Delamere with 3 members of the 250 Club, 36 from the 100 Club and 50 over 50s.

Among these you may have noticed serial runner Paul Smith visiting from Durham parkrun and acting as 30-minute pacer.
As well as having completed 338 parkruns, Paul has run at least 5k every day since January 2007, clocking up thousands of miles whilst raising money for charity.
Today he was celebrating his 3891st consecutive run - amazing!!

Also thanks to Ray O'Grady who was our 27-minute pacer today.

2 more t-shirts were won this week with Elizabeth Toombs and Keith Craig both joining the 100 club. Congratulations!

Thanks again to the rest of the volunteers for making it all possible and so enjoyable!

OK I'll come clean - this report is almost an exact copy of report #153 from March last year (click HERE if you're interested - lots of spooky similarities!).

Run Report – Event No. 199 25th February 2017

 

The impact of storm Doris could be seen in the forest this morning, with quite a few trees down and lots of debris.
Fortunately though the worst had passed and there was just a steady breeze pushing us along the lake shore.

306 of you (seen here milling at the start) completed the run today - well done all!

25th feb

Two new members of the 50 Club this week: Congratulations to Lauren Walker and Andy Haver.

Another big bunch of first timers again today – including Harry Norton who did his first parkrun at age 6.
He was concerned before the start that he was going to come first – not quite, but he did manage 272nd!
Stick at it – your day will come!!

Also welcome to our parkrun tourists – who this week included a small contingent from Shrewsbury parkrun.

Watch your speed!! No, not on the parkrun but a reminder that there’s a 15mph limit on the access road to the car parks. Please remember to observe this out of consideration for local residents and other forest users.

Huge thanks to our amazing volunteers!
And don’t forget – next week is our 200th event and also our 4th birthday. There’ll be cake (especially if you bring some!) and fancy dress and presentations. So get ready for some great party atmosphere – see you on Saturday!!
