Felixstowe parkrun is cancelled on 2020-10-31 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Felixstowe parkrun #101 Run Report

This week we had the spectacular Caroline STAFFORD as the RD, with a team of 21 other volunteers for our palindromic parkrun number 101. It looks like this was our last parkrun for a bit due to the Coronavirus that is spreading everywhere (for updates please click here for the main post by parkrun HQ), but we do hope to see you all again soon.

We hope that Alan GARNHAM, Andrew KERRY, Logan KERRY and Zoe MARJORAM enjoyed completing their first ever parkrun with us, and when things get back to normal we hope to see you again. Our milestone runner this week was Ronald CLARK who completed his 50th parkrun - well done!

Our first male finisher was Jonathan GLANFIELD who completed his 19th parkrun in 17:43.
Our first female finisher was Alice HEATHER-HAYES in 20:05, completing her 32nd parkrun. Alice also had the highest Age Grade today with a score of 79.09%.

This week's picked out stats are...

  • We had 116 male parkrunners and 91 female parkrunners complete the course.
  • At our 101st event, Hayley DOWN was the person to be the 101st one to get back to the timekeepers.
  • The average age was approximately 46 years old, with 45-49 being the most popular age group.
  • We were joined by two people called Sharon this week: Sharon HAYFIELD and Sharon TAYLOR.
  • The combined distance this week was 1,070km which takes you all the way from Felixstowe to Oslo, Norway and gives you enough km left to complete Tøyen parkrun.
  • This week's second of choice is 11, and the following parkruns completed the course on the 11th second of the minute:
    Dan WILSON-BROWN
    (21:11), Paul STONE (23:11), Angela PORTER (28:11) and Anita YOUNG
  • This was our joint 60th most attended parkrun since we began in April 2018.
  • This week the tokens were sorted back into order by Ethel MATTHEWS and Ruth WARNER, of which both have done this 22 times now - that's a lot of sorting!

I hope to see you all again at parkrun soon, it seems weird that we won't have one for at least a few weeks. We ask that people take the cancellations seriously and don't all meet up to complete the course at 9am on Saturdays. To quote Sarah FITCH (and repeated in the comments on Facebook by Sue WILKINSON): "Share the love, not the virus."

We at the core team wish everyone well and look forward to doing a parkrun again in the future. I've very nearly been writing the Run Reports at Felixstowe for a year now, having just done the 49th Run Report for you all - and I've enjoyed looking at the stats and all your names. See you soon!

We thank our RD this week Liz CLARK and her team of volunteers who sent you all on your way to complete Felixstowe parkrun for our final event in the double figures!

Felixstowe parkrun #97 – Valentines Theme

This week saw RD Steven ALDER take the reigns for today's Felixstowe parkrun. The core team were keeping an eye on Storm Dennis as Saturday approached, being aware quite a lot of parkruns across the country were cancelling. Meanwhile, Steven prepared for the Valentines themed parkrun with some 'interesting' poems (although let's be thankful he didn't read any out at the briefing). We even had some heart sweets and balloons. The storm held off for long enough for the parkrun to take place, although we had to be careful of the shingle on the course. Has anyone found the runaway balloon yet?
