Event number 250!

It's actually not that often that we get a soggy parkrun, but when we do we really do! Hopefully it was a nice refreshing change to being too warm this week.

Well done to all of our 82 participants today. We really weren't expecting as many with the way the weather was looking. But you all well and truly earned your breakfast this morning. It's always good to see new faces every week. Today we had visitors from outside the region today, including Worcester, London, Barnsley, Penrith, Cambridge and our furthest from Australia.

Huge thanks again to our amazing volunteers this morning. Congratulations to Shona Gillespie who joined the 25 volunteer club this morning. Shona is hopefully going to be joining our Run Director team shortly, so keep an eye out for her debut. ;)

As parkrun looks to a more sustainable future, you'll have seen us encouraging more use of the virtual volunteer app. We appreciate that not everyone has a smart phone, but if you're one of those people that has an old one lying around in a drawer somewhere we'd love it if you'd consider donating it to our event. Some older phones may not be compatible, so it's worth a check first. There's further information about the app in this news item: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/gibside/news/2018/07/30/theres-an-app-for-that/

Virtual volunteer
So, the bit I know you've all been waiting for - some stats!
  • Over our first 250 events we've seen 2092 people register with parkrun and listing Gibside as their home event, including 296 in the last 12 months.
  • 3761 people have completed 17215 parkruns at Gibside. That's over 86,000km - more than twice around the world!
  • 556 people have volunteered on 3081 occasions.  So at an average of an hour each, that's more than 128 solid days of volunteering, more than the gestation period of a lion!
If that's not enough for you, here's a sexy little chart showing the demographic of our registered parkrunners.

Both our male and female course records have also been broken this year. Callum Hanson with a speedy 16:24 and Danielle Smythe with a very impressive 18:46. Yes, even up those hills!

Thanks to everyone who has supported us by running, jogging, walking or volunteering so far. Here's to the next 250!

In Case of Emergency

If you haven't printed out a barcode for while, you may not have one with your emergency contact details on. If you're not sure if your emergency contact details are up to date, please take a moment to review your profile. Simply sign into your account at the link below and click on 'update'.

Barcodes, apricot and donations

Not spent all your Christmas money in the January sales? How about purchasing a shiny new plastic barcode from our official supplier https://parkrun-barcode.com.
From as little as £3.96 you can get a credit card sized robust barcode that won't disintegrate in soggy sweaty pockets. Prices include delivery, so they really are a bargain. The wrist bands are also handy for popping on if you go for a run alone as they have your emergency contact details on too.

If you've got a bit more Christmas money, what about some parkrun apricot? Sales of these products helps to secure the future of the free milestone t-shirts. https://parkrun.shop

Don't want more stuff? What about making a small donation to your local event? Initial start up funding provides us with all the kit we need, but over time things get worn out or used (first aid kit) and need replacing. Simply visit the 'about us' section of the event website you want to donate to. All donations go directly to the event. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/gibside/aboutus/

Gibside parkrun Event number 153 1st July 2017

Didn't the parkrun weather fairy do us proud? Optimum conditions for 14 of you to manage a PB this morning.

Great to see the ladies from This Girl Can at Gibside today. Keep an eye for them doing a volunteer take over with us in September. Also congratulations to Tracy Bowers on completing her 100th parkrun with us this morning. She had the timekeepers a little worried with her entourage crossing the finish line!

Tail Walking

From parkrun's Chief Operating Officer, Tom Williams

"By now you are likely to be aware that we recently changed the title of one of our volunteer roles, as Tail Runner became Tail Walker. You’ll also be aware that over the last year or so we have begun proactively encouraging less-active people to engage with our events, in line with our mission statement: “A healthier, happier planet.”

Our own insight shows us that by far the most common reason for someone registering and not participating is that they don't feel capable of running 5k. However, since the earliest days of parkrun we have encouraged walkers at all our events and aimed to make them feel welcome.

For example, when we started Woodhouse Moor parkrun in October 2007, my friend Tess walked round the course in 58 minutes, supported by another friend of mine who walked with her as a volunteer that day. We also created the strap-line “Walk it, jog it, run it”.

In recent times we felt that not only was the term “tail runner” becoming less accurate, as more participants were walking at our events, it was also discouraging the least confident people from registering. This was discussed in depth with Chrissie Wellington (as our Global Lead for Health & Wellbeing) and the participation team, as well as Ambassadors and EDs. Those discussions led to the change of title.

It is our hope that this change will encourage some of those who would benefit most from increased socially-focused physical activity to take part in our events. We also hope that it will amplify the message across all of parkrun that walkers are always welcome.

Importantly, the role is unchanged. As previously the tail runners walked where appropriate, tail walkers are of course permitted to run where appropriate. We do expect a slight upturn in walking participants, however we do not foresee any significant impact on volunteer teams."

Gibside parkrun Event number 133 28th January 2017

Gibside parkrunners you did me proud this week by jumping into action to help a fellow parkrunner. His mum has confirmed that he is feeling much better and should be back running with us next week. Whilst our emergency procedure went to plan, it did make me wonder how many of our parkrunners were carrying ID with emergency contact information.

When was the last time you updated your profile? To do this you can click on the 'manage my profile' button in your results email or thanks for volunteering email. Or you can log in to your profile with your athlete ID here: https://www.parkrun.com/signin/

If you haven't done so already, how about checking out the range of products available from our authorised parkrun barcode supplier.
