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!

B77CEB19-B3F6-4DDA-9315-4D47750D676D

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.

Guernsey parkrun #186 – 30 November 2019

0AE10DD5-F289-42A6-A624-31AD91F33E9E

This week saw 117 participants, run,jog or walk the course, in rather chilly and windy conditions. First finishers this week were Jamie Ingrouille who is back into his running after his successful marathon in Jersey and Karen Franham, well done to both of you.

We welcomed 4 new timers and Alison Parry was the only runner to record a new PB, well done Alison.

The volunteer team were in good spirit despite the cold conditions and were cheered up by a couple of verses of songs by me (although they may have a different opinion) to keep us going.

Well done to all participants, and thank you to my volunteer team.

Here is first time volunteer Liz Arklie with the selfie frame!

Guernsey parkrun #185 – 23 November 2019

This week we switched over to our winter course and the words echoing around Guernsey's parkrun at Pembroke Bay, were mainly, yipee it's dry!

We were lucky to have 141 participants taking to the course this week including several visitors who we were delighted to welcome. James de Garis and Lottie Smith were our first finishers so well done to both of them. Also congratulations to Richard Morris who completed his 100th parkrun and then braved the sea for an after run swim, very brave.

Lastly a big thank you to all our volunteers, runners and walkers, well done and see you all next week.

Having left home at 7:30am in heavy rain we were pleased to arrive at the equipment box at the same time as a patch of blue sky!

Needless to say it didn’t last and the course set up team got rather wet in a heavy downpour.

However participants who were up for braving the weather were rewarded with a relatively dry spell, and despite a bit of a chill wind the conditions were much nicer than last week, especially for the volunteers!

On that subject, thanks to the team this week:

Lorna O'DONNELL • Julie LAWLOR • Karl BROUARD • Anthony O'DONNELL • Nigel HURFORD • Beth WRIGHT • Claire HACKNEY • Steven MARQUIS • Jenny WINTERFLOOD • Martin WRIGHT • Nicola KOYUPINAR • Emily WRIGHT • Simon HOLLYER-HILL • Mary HOLLYER HILL • Anna ROSSLER

Here are some of the team, sorry marshals, you missed the photo opportunity!

This week Jackie Mauger celebrated her 50th parkrun, so well come to the milestone club Jackie and we look forward to seeing you in your red shirt in weeks to come.

On the subject of milestones I have ordered some milestone capes (white/10, red/50, black/100, green/250 (you’ll get there eventually!) and purple/25 (volunteering milestone). These have been gifted to us by Skipton International Community Fund and we are very grateful for their support. The capes can be borrowed by any parkrunner who is completing their milestone with us, either for the run or for a photo opportunity!

Skipton have also provided funds to purchase a wireless portable PA system, which will hopefully save us having to shout through the loudhailer.

I have high hopes it will work well for our situation after being impressed last week when Soo Wellfair used her less powerful model for the first timers briefing with great success. Thanks to Linda Johansen for letting me know about the Skipton International Community Fund and of course to Skipton themselves for agreeing these purchases.

Turning to next week, we will be running our usual Halloween event and I encourage you all to come along in full costume or at least a nod to the occasion! We will have some treats for the children and I might even turn my hand to making some spooky Halloween cupcakes, time permitting!

Boo!

Boo!

We still have spaces on the roster for another marshal, funnel manager and someone to help Kate Tall with course set up. Please email us (guernsey@parkrun.com) if you can help.

Thanks Lorna O’Donnell

Guernsey parkrun Event #180 -12 October 2019

DC9A5B29-8BCA-4E57-81FB-4EE8F12916BF

Despite the drizzly and dull weather, we were still greeted with a warm and welcoming smile from Lorna the Event Director and Saturday’s Run Director. After our obligatory photo with the Guernsey parkrun flag we were given a very informative and jolly first timers briefing. We loved the hip speaker idea and will be looking to replicate at our event.

DC9715FC-4D8C-4BF9-925C-B5A7E61B4447

The course was a lovely one with stunning scenery. A little tight in places but this just added to the fun. We even found time to pose for selfies with the firing range and stray golf ball signs. The marshals on route were both welcoming and encouraging. We would certainly recommend this friendly event and the post run cafe was excellent too.

Before the run we were treated to some historical facts about the immediate area by a very friendly volunteer. We thought we would return the favour. Our event takes place in the 70 hectare Great Lines Heritage park, Gillingham, Kent. Part of the course takes you around the Royal Naval War Memorial situated at the top of the field and is dedicated to the memory of those sailors from Chatham-based ships who died during The Great War (1914-18) and World War 2 (1939-45), and who have no known grave. After the Second World War the memorial was extended by the addition of the outer wall, which forms a semi-circle on the side of the memorial away from the town to give protection against the wind. 10,112 names are commemorated on the fifty plaques on the extension.

Today we were merely 4 of the 193 participants who ran, jogged or walked the course. 23 (including us) were first timers and 44 amazing people achieved PB’s in those conditions. parkrun relies on the support from all the volunteers so if you haven't tried it yet, give it a go. Its fun and nothing to worry about.
We certain hope to be back sometime in the future.
