PBs

We had a handful of PBs today, not surprising as conditions were pretty much perfect – 7 in total. Well done to Vicky FABBRI, Nikki STOPFORD, William MCKEEVER, Alex PICKERING, David SINDEN, Paul WHELPTON and Richard CRAVEN. Congratulations!

Volunteers

Many thanks go out to all the volunteers who helped in another fine example of organisation! We’re always open for suggestions to improve the organisation of Hackney Marshes parkrun so please don’t be afraid to share any ideas you may have. 

As always, parkrun relies on the generosity of it’s runners to give up their time to volunteer.  The more people who volunteer the more we can spread the workload to make it a better morning for everyone. You can volunteer by sending an e-mail to hackney-marsheshelpers@parkrun.com

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.
