Great Dunmow parkrun is cancelled on 2021-06-26 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

EVENT CANCELLED
I'm sorry to say, after a detailed course inspection earlier today with the Core Team we need to cancel tomorrow's 21st December park run. The course is too wet, is unsafe, as you can see the river is dangerously high and it would damage the ground far too much.

Sorry folks, I did inspect it carefully as you can see!! Merry Christmas to all of you.

Event #84 – 23rd Novemeber 2019

IMG_0779 PR 84

So not one of the nicest mornings in respect of the weather on Saturday and at one point I did wonder just how many runners we would get?  After a late cry for help, you came good and we had a flurry of volunteers; thank you. It really was a late call this week and I cannot stress enough that without the help of our volunteers we simply cannot put on the event.

So for those of you who did volunteer, you are wonderful. We did have some newcomers to volunteering too so well done, thank you and hopefully others will follow and realise what fun it is.

A very warm welcome also to our newcomers to parkrun. I hope you enjoyed it, apart from the mud, and you will be back for more. Welcome also to our Tourists who visited us this week from Steyning in Sussex and Great Cornard.

So it was a bit of a muddy one. With the relentless rain we have had recently there are now parts of the course that are getting muddy. The core team will keep an eye on this and advise if we need to make any changes to the course through the week on the facebook page.

Chris & Mandy Lines celebrated their 50th  parkrun on Saturday, well done to both of you and thank you for the cakes enjoyed by the muddy runners at the finish. Chris and Mandy have done 47 of their 50 parkrun's at Great Dunmow and in addition to their magic 50. both have volunteered 12 times each.

Szabina Nemeth also celebrated her 50th parkun. Szabina has run all 50 at Great Dunmow and again in doing so has volunteered 20 times also.

This week 52 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 1 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers:

Darren WOMACK • Thomas WILTON • Alec LODGE • Sandra PAVITT • Glenda JACKSON • Elizabeth BELLINGER • Linda PLEDGER • Susan ANDERSON • David MCMILLAN • Matt WEBSTER • Rachael ANDERSON • David HURST • Caroline BARKER • Matthew GIBSON • Vicki NORMAN • Pete NORMAN • Edward BREEZE • Nicola WITTMAN • Doris SIMS • John SIMS • David WILLIAMS • Susan LUCAS • Robert LUCAS

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Great Dunmow parkrun Results Page.

Rachael is your Run Director on Saturday, let's get that roster full.

See you soo

Event #83 – 16th November 2019

Finally a dry day! Well no rain at least. The ground certainly wasn't dry but runners seemed to heed the pre-run advice of trail shoes or taking it steadily in very slippery conditions, and 3 people recorded PBs so well done to you!

We frequently have challenges getting sufficient volunteers from week to week, which places a heavy reliance on the core team to fulfil roles, and depriving them of an opportunity to be able to run themselves, so do please contact us if you can help. Many roles can be combined to allow those who want a run to still run, and for faster finishers, a finish area role can be done once you've crossed the finish line. All volunteer roles are easy to do (full training is given), and you might even enjoy it!

Off the back of the above, I wanted to single out Eileen Jolly for particular thanks this week. Eileen volunteered to help set up the course even though she wasn't staying to take part in the run itself. This is the kind of selflessness which makes parkrun so special.

68 people ran, jogged or walked the course; 12 of whom were new to our parkrun. Despite the muddy conditions, we hope you enjoyed yourselves and hope so see you back soon.

Full results and a complete event history can be found on the Great Dunmow parkrun Results Page.
