Volunteering - get involved with your parkrun!

Your parkrun depends on you volunteering 3 times a year. If you'd like to be included on our volunteer mailing list, please drop us an email - Hackney-MarshesHelpers@parkrun.com. We are still looking for volunteers to fill vacant positions in December and we welcome hearing from you if you are able to help.

Race 49 – May 21st, 2011 – RACE REPORT

Record attendance!

 

A bright sunny Saturday morning brought out the crowds at Hackney Marshes on Saturday. A field of 75 runners lined up to take part, well above our usual attendance levels and great news for our little local parkrun, which is not so little any more! A grant total of 33 first timers took part – FANTASTIC!

Pam and a fab team of volunteers got the crowd out running and did a spectacular job in processing a few more runners than usual, considering that we were a few hands short (sorry Pam!) 

 

The Results

 

Joseph DALE of London Fields Triathlon, a first timer and this week’s winner in a time of 16:53. Hot on his heels was Richard EDMONDS of Serpentine in a time of 17:07. Andrew FINN of London Fields Triathlon placed third in a time of 17:18.

 

Holly GILBERT of Victoria Park Harriers had her tenth win in a time of 19:11 for the 10th time. Holly beat Kate MALCOLM who came in just over a minute later in 20:12. Joanna ALBERT, also of Victoria Park Harriers placed third in a time of 20:20.

 

In today's Age Graded competition, Richard EDMONDS recorded a very impressive performance of 80.33%

 

The new course is performing well, flat, 26 runners recorded PBs, bringing the total number since the Hackney Marshes started to 418. In this time, 501 runners from 59 different clubs have completed the race 1564 times covering a distance of 7820 kilometers.

 

Party time next week AND the week after….

 

Next week on the 28th of May, we have our first birthday - so what better reason to celebrate than that!  At our year anniversary event, we will be announcing the winners of this year’s points competition and recognising the achievements of a couple of other individuals. SO - bring cake and lets party!

 

ALSO – double celebration. On the 04 June is the run free event!! http://bit.ly/j2dS1Con . So invite you friends, family and colleagues to join the run... there will be an informal picnic afterwards too so bring some goodies and a picnic blanket

 

SO, hope to see you next Saturday, bake a cake or something else yummy to share, bring a rug and we look forward to celebrating with you then.

 

See you and have a great week.

Race 47 – May 7th, 2011 – RACE REPORT

This week saw 30 runners brave the imminent downpours to try out the new course and new start/finish area. Thanks to the ever wonderful volunteers, we managed to get the new course pegged out and marshalled in plenty of time.

 

First off, apologies to those runners who gathered at the old start location - we managed to scoop up most of you before the start of the event and point you in the right direction towards the Hackney Marshes Centre. I know that a few of you who came close to 9am missed us, but good on you for running the old course anyway and we look forward to seeing you at the new start soon.

 

The low-down on the new course

 

The start consists of a 100m dash on grass, before popping through a gap in the hedge and on to the main marshes path. The route continues along a tree-lined, leafy (and sometimes very buggy!) tarmac path in an anticlockwise direction around the marshes. The course then opens up onto the main marsh, before passing the old changing sheds (and our old starting point), before joining the Lea Navigation Channel path towards the turnaround point, our friendly marshal Tim and the half way mark. Runners then complete a u-turn, some more efficiently than others, before following the same route back for 2.5km to the Hackney Marshes Centre and the finish line.

 

The results

 

The first face to peek around the hedges and bound towards the finish was the consistently impressive Bertie POWELL of Woodford Green AC who won in a time of 16:50. That makes a tidy dozen wins for Bertie at Hackney Marshes, so well done! In his first 5k of the season and first run at Hackney Marshes, Robin JONES took second by 30 seconds recording 17:20. Robin is also one of our local Sweatshop reps, so good job and thanks for the vouchers! Neil COOK of Victoria Park Harriers, who was also a first timer, placed third in a time of 17:46.

 

Elin SKAGERBERG stormed home as the first woman in a time of 18:57. This was her second win and due to the torrential downpour, her barcode did not read. So thanks for getting in touch after the event to claim your well deserved position! Linda INGRAM from Victoria Park Harriers was the second woman home in a time of 23:14, and she recorded a new PB in the process. Dorothea GARTLAND placed third in a time of 23:48.

 

The verdict?

 

Considering the downpour that unleashed its’ fury after about 10 minutes of running, 14 runners recorded PBs – the new course is proving to be fast and accurate, the only challenge is navigating the turnaround point at half way – we are working on how we can make this better for you. The feedback was great; considering there were lots of soggy runners: the new course cuts out the desolate east marshes, some runners prefer the certainty of a ‘there and back’ course, others commented that they preferred not knowing how far they had run, and people said that it was great to see others running on the course.

 

Until next Saturday, have a great week and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

 

The Event Team

(Robb, Pam and Erica)
