Guernsey parkrun is cancelled on 6 June 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Guernsey parkrun Event#198 -7 March 2020

On arrival the cheers from the volunteers were, "hooray no rain" and they were repaid for their efforts with 203 participants heading out on the course.

We were delighted, with today being a celebration of International Women's Day, to welcome around 15 young ladies from ladies college along with a few teachers who are all planning to join us at parkrun every week through March, it was lovely to see you all.

We also welcomed some first timers including at least one lady from Jersey, who thought our course was much tougher than theirs and I have to agree it is but we love it! First finishers were Steve Manklow and Lottie Smith, well done to you both.

Finally well done to all our participants and another big thank you to all our volunteers, see you all next week.

Guernsey parkrun Event #190 – 4 January 2020

58675A1B-69F3-405B-B458-648CC08F791B

A dry morning with only light winds greeted our runners for the first parkrun of 2020 and a good turnout of 191 which made for a busy course.

Well done to first finishers Richard Moore (SM30-34; 21:08) who was running with us for the first time, and to Lottie Smith (JW15-17; 22:51) In fact we had 21 first timers as well as 9 of you who managed to record a new PB, congratulations.

No running milestones to celebrate this week, but we do give our congratulations to Caroline Mauger who has clocked up 25 volunteering stints with us and earns the purple milestone shirt. If I’d known that earlier Caroline, I would have had you in the purple cape!

Maybe I’m easily pleased but there’s nothing like sorting all the finish tokens and finding them all there! We are now on Event #190 and since we started we have lost 48 tokens, making up replacements when needed from our back up supply. Once those have gone we will need to use some of our donated funds to buy a new set of tokens, but we can delay that for a bit longer as our loss rate seems to have gone right down! Thankfully our “please do not take your finish token home” messages are getting through!

The volunteer roster is looking pretty healthy for next week, with room for just two more marshals, however there’s plenty of space for 18 January and thereafter all weeks going forward, so if you would like to try volunteering please get in touch.

The Beach House Cafe remains closed until 23 January so another two weeks to go until we can enjoy a warming drink post parkrun!

Kirsten is in charge next week and we have our fingers crossed for decent weather once again.

parkrun Code of Conduct

Happy New Year to all our participants and volunteers!
We are expecting the course to be busy on Saturday, so here is a timely reminder of the parkrun Code of Conduct. Remember parkrun is a fun run, not a race and any pushing or shoving other runners or walkers is absolutely unacceptable. Please keep to the right hand side of the path to allow others to pass safely, thank you.

Guernsey parkrun Event #189 -28 December 2019

This week 186 people joined us on a lovely dry morning at Pembroke for our last parkrun of 2019.

It was very much a morning of celebrations. Mark Jeffreys and Diane Booth were both running their 100th parkrun and Jonathon Morris his 50th. Huge congratulations to you all and well done Mark for managing to run so well in the milestone cape. I didn't manage a run report last week so belated congratulations also to Cath Birnie for reaching the 100 milestone last week, Linda Nel for 50 and also Katie Smith and Fleur Harrison for J10, There are lots of people joining the milestone club now which is great.

Continuing on the theme of celebrations this week we had no fewer than four people running on their birthday. RD Nicki Watson, regular volunteers Mel Crocker and Warren Mauger, and also Simon Ingrouille. Happy birthday all !

We waved goodbye to Simon and Mary Hollyer-Hill as they take a well earned break after a very impressive 31 volunteers each at Guernsey parkrun this year but we are looking forward to welcoming them back after their trip......and they are on the roster already.

A number of our regular volunteers took the opportunity to run the final parkrun of the year. It would be wonderful if more people were able to volunteer to allow our core team to do this more often. A new years resolution perhaps?!

Well done to everyone who ran this week and to all who have joined us this year. Wishing everyone a very happy new year and lots more parkrun fun in 2020.
