Greenwich parkrun is cancelled on 2021-05-22 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Greenwich (not)parkrun week #47 3 May – 9 May 2021

Week 47th of (not)parkrun and our regular (not)parkrunners are really ramping up the kilometres (this run report writer included) – potentially in an effort to reach those (not)milestones? – 33 runners hit 87 (not)parkruns between them. That’s fewer runners but more runs than the previous week.

Included in those 87 runs were two from Jason Dixon, which took him past the 50 (not)parkrun mark, and Sally Dorrell’s three runs made her the 10th member of Greenwich’s 100 club. A shout-out is also due to Gavin Hose who reached the 100 milestone a few weeks ago. How many more will be able to claim their virtual T-shirt’s before parkrun’s return?

In Eltham Juniors news, the return of Junior parkrun for the under-10s has slowed numbers at (not)Junior parkrun with Riley Craske logging a lone (not)junior parkrun this week, but 67 others joined him on sunny Sunday morning for the 205th event. That included 12 new faces running their maiden Junior parkrun, and an amazing 21 PBs – well done all!

(not)parkrun report – week #46 26 April – 2 May 2021

As we look forward to the potential re-start of parkrun events, this week we had the excellent news that our friends at Eltham Junior Parkrun were able to put on their first in-person event for a year!

24 volunteers helped 55 junior parkrunners complete the course – which included eleven first timers and 22 personal bests. Well done to everyone who took part! (Junior parkrunners can still also log their (not)parkruns – well done to Rile Craske who was out three times last week and has now completed 138 runs in total).

Meanwhile, older runners have to wait a bit longer for their events to restart – but in the meantime, 37 runners were out on their local pavements and parks to complete 85 (not)parkruns.

It was another seven-day-streak for Sarah Payne, who at the end of this week, had completed 319 (not)parkruns – but had already logged more by the time I started writing this!

Personal Bests

  • John Payne set a new PB of 28.23 on the quickest of his five runs this week. Currently on 94 (not)parkruns – can John get another PB before he reaches 100?
  • Ross Tremain improved his PB to 22.26 after 74 (not)parkruns, including 3 this week. This is faster than his in-person PB – will we be seeing a new PB from Ross when he returns to Avery Hill Park?
  • We also saw new PBs from regular volunteer Martin Hance (on his eighth run) and event director Colin Armstrong (on his seventh run).

(not)milestones

It was a bumper week for (not)milestones this week:

Alison Sheldon (3 runs this week) and Wole Odele (6 runs this week) became the second and third Greenwich runners to go past 150 (not)parkruns.

Sam Wheeler (4 runs this week) became the eighth runner to go past 100 Greenwich (not)parkruns.

We have plenty of people closing in milestones – so we can expect plenty more in the next few weeks.

Age Graded Leaderboard

Parkrun is a run, not a race – and the same is true of (not)parkrun. With that in mind, let’s celebrate this week’s highest age grading!

It is the same leaderboard as last week, with Karen, Alison and Sally all reclaiming their places. However, all three of them ran faster times this week, meaning the age-grades are all higher.

  1. Karen Elizabeth HANCOCK – Female - VW65-69 - 79.57% age grade (26:16)
  2. Alison SHELDON – Female - VW55-59 - 72.72% age grade (25:14)
  3. Sally DORRELL – Female - VW70-74 - 72.23% age grade (31:20)

Taking park in (not)parkrun

Taking part in (not)parkrun is really easy. Just run, walk or jog 5km, anywhere you like (even on a treadmill) on any day of the week, at any time. Then log the date and time of your (not)parkrun via your profile page. You can log one activity per day, and your fastest time of the week will be included in the weekly results table.

(not)parkrun report – week #45 19 April – 25 April 2021

As the date when events across the UK are due to reopen draws ever nearer, 37 (not)parkrunners tied up their laces and logged their virtual kms. 94 times were recorded, one of which was a PB for Rachel Norman. There were no First Timers but we are able to celebrate two milestones this week: 100 club for leaderboard regular, Alison Craske and 50 club for Amy Tremain. With a handful of you now within touching distance of a milestone, next week could be one to watch.

While we still await the official restart of Eltham Junior Parkrun, the virtual event has been a hive of activity this week with what is surely a record 20 juniors, completing 30 events. Naturally, Riley Craske continued his 7-day #runstreak and added a PB to boot, but 2 First Timers also joined in. 8 PBs were set which means the junior event is surely going to be a huge hit when it reopens in due course.

Greenwich (not)parkrun week #44 12 April – 18 April 2021

The 44th week of (not)parkrun and 34 runners ran 430km, making that 86 (not)parkruns between them. John Payne joined Sarah Payne and Wole Odele in logging 7 (not)parkruns each – repeat that feat for a second week in a row?

 

Not an official milestone, but Sarah Payne’s (not)parkruns last week took her over the 300 mark! No other milestones last week, but a number of runners right on the cusp of achieving various milestones, including someone who’s already managed to do so for week #45 – but that’s for next week’s report!

 

Over at Eltham Juniors, Edward Biscoe made his Eltham Juniors (not)parkrun debut, alongside Riley Craske’s 5(not)junior parkruns last week. We hope to see you back soon Edward!

(not)parkrun report – week #43 5 – 11 March

As we all got ready for a slight easing of the lockdown rules, 38 Greenwich parkrunners stuck to their (not)parkrunning routines for another week of running/jogging/walking 5k, completing 87 in total.

We didn’t have anyone reach a (not)milestone this week – however, at the end of the week, one runner was within touching distance of a very special milestone, which will be featured in next week’s report!

Over at Eltham Junior Parkrun, as we wait for confirmation of when in-person events can resume, Riley Craske has continued his prolific participation in (not)junior parkrun, adding 5 more runs this week. 

Personal Bests

5 runners reached new personal bests this week. 

Well done to Kerry Gallagher (59 runs in total), Karen Hancock (27 runs in total), Valerie Eames (3 runs in total), Alice Evans (3 runs in total) and Kate Evan-Jones (2 runs in total). 

Welcome to (not)parkrun

We had a first timer this week, Mike Berry. Mike first began parkrunning regularly at Greenwich since his first run in 2019 and had also volunteered on several occasions. It’s great to see him on our results page again!

Age Graded Leaderboard 

(not)parkrun is a run, not a race – and therefore each week, we like to look at the age-graded leaderboard (rather than the overall fastest times). 

It’s a strong leaderboard, with two PBs at the top of the list, as Kate Evan-Jones clocking a fantastic 80% age-grade, nudging ahead of another great run from Karen Elizabeth Hancock. Alison Sheldon also deserves a mention, as she ran six times last week and finished the week on 141 runs. 

  1. Kate EVAN-JONES – Female - VW60-64 - 80.00% age grade (24:15 - New PB!)
  2. Karen Elizabeth HANCOCK – Female - VW65-69 - 78.51% age grade (26:13 - New PB!)
  3. Alison SHELDON – Female - VW55-59 - 71.12% age grade (25:48)
