Falkirk parkrun is cancelled on 4 April 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Run Report – Event 424

Well done to everyone who was part of our parkrun at the weekend. The weather was certainly interesting making it quite the challenge for both runners and volunteers. Even so 185 people turned up to run and 22 of you managed personal bests at the same time.

Thanks to our top volunteering team, many of whom were from Lindsays who also support the Cross Country event that was taking part in Callendar Park.

We have another takeover weekend coming up at the end of March when Linlithgow Athletics Club will be supplying both volunteers and pacers for the event. Before that we'll be celebrating Women's Day on March 7th when the event will be run by, and all roles filled by, women. If you fancy volunteering that weekend or any others, please email falkirk@parkrun.com

Run Report – Braes Blazers

Run report 30/11/19

It was a very chilly, still and beautifully sunny St Andrew’s Day that greeted the regulars, first timers and Braes Blazers Netball Club volunteers this morning. The frost covered trees in Callendar Park looked resplendent in the winter sun.

Two milestones were reached this weekend. Linda Thomson, also a member of Braes Blazers, who ran her 50th parkrun as tailwalker and Malcolm Paul who ran his 100th. Congratulations to both!
17 first timers were welcomed to Falkirk too, hope you enjoyed it.

Braes Blazers netballers thoroughly enjoyed volunteering at parkrun this morning and the sub-zero temperatures did not chill enthusiasm! Holly’s World Challenge cupcakes were a very welcome treat too. If anyone would like to try netball come along and find the Blazers at Braes High School on Monday nights, 7:30-9:00pm (see Braes Blazers Netball Club fb page for details)

Thank you for having us! We might even come back to volunteer again sometime.

Thank you … you are all amazing!

May I start today by saying a heartfelt thank you to all todays marshals and parkrunners who made Falkirk parkrun today such a success … both our regulars and our visitors who today hailed from as far afield as Linlithgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Wales, the Netherlands and Australia! You are all amazing!!!

Today, we were lucky enough to celebrate some fantastic milestones and I would like to thank the 14 registered parkrunners who made Falkirk their first ever parkrun - I know there were more of you first timers as two of the cutest parkrunners we’ve ever had (twins who have just celebrated their 4th birthday) do not appear in the results. First timers, I truly hope that you enjoyed your experience today and that this will not be your last parkrun.

And my sincere congratulations go to the 40 park runners who celebrated a new PB! Go you!!!

Other milestones this weekend saw Claire Leishman run her 50th, Andrew Grant and Karen Davidson run their 100th and Marty Blair, Gordon Hobbs and Gordon Muircroft (yes, I may not have made the announcement before you started but I spotted you in the results) run their 150th! Fantastic!! Congratulations to you all!!!
