18th May 2019 Event No. 240

Hi everyone,

Well done to all 259 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this week, of whom 32 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers and as always a huge thank you to them all:

David PAPWORTH • Roy STEVEN • John GILLESPIE • Steve WRIGHT • Sara COOMBE • Woody HUDSON • Alan POWERS • Gary MEAD • Debbie COOPER • Carmen BYFIELD • Rachel SHORE • Greg TYE • Mick MADDAMS • Lewis TERRELL • Tom FREEMAN • Lindsey PEARSON • Brenda FREEMAN • William HALL • Louise PEACOCK • Jessica HOPKINS • Rosemary SPARREY • Teresa WARREN • John ALLUM

The volunteer roster for the next few weeks is looking rather bare so please do consider helping out, especially if you haven't done so before. Please let us know if you can help harlowhelpers@parkrun.com and we will add you to the roster.  

Well this week there were no milestones to celebrate however, If you know you are running your 10th (for juniors only), 50th, 100th, 250th, 500th parkrun or even your 25th volunteering stint, please do let us know so we can give you the shout out you deserve. Providing cake to celebrate is not compulsory but very nice.

Talking of volunteers and milestones our very own John celebrated his 80th birthday and came along still to marshal.  Congrats again John, was lovely to be able to celebrate just a little.

Next to John in the 2nd picture is David.  David and his lovely wife Julie visited us from Bushy where parkrun first started.  It was lovely to meet and chat to them and David very kindly was our additional tail walker this week too.  They seemed to enjoy our challenging course and have now added H to their parkrun touristing efforts, well done! and thanks for coming along to see us.

Another apology for the dodgy scanning machines last week.  They are all charged and dry now so hopefully all will be well this time, but thank you all again for your patience.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Harlow parkrun Results Page.

The female record is held by Megan EVANS who recorded a time of 19:27 on 20th December 2014 (event number 7).
The male record is held by Afewerk ROSSOM who recorded a time of 15:49 on 21st July 2018 (event number 196).
The Age Grade course record is held by Megan EGGELING who recorded 86.57% (27:03) on 30th July 2016 (event number 93).

Handing over the reins to Robin for the next couple of weeks and I will be there running so see you next week.

Hello, and Thank you for taking the time to read my report.

We had yet another great attendance this week, and people are starting to get used to the hills again . A special mention to Davina Smith who managed to run up The pitch and putt hill for the first time, and did it on both laps too! Well done Davina!

We were joined by Steve from "Teens Unite " who are organising a running event to raise money for a very worthwhile cause. I hope plenty of you will be looking to sign up to their event .

27th April 2019 Event #237

Hi Everyone,

Well this week was a bit different to last week, wasn't it? It was so windy we had to move our scanning table after it went flying across the grass while we were setting up. We also had to put our finish tokens into one big basket after scanning them as there was no way we could secure our trusty trays that we usually sort them out into. That meant we just had to go over to Spurriers cafe in the park to have a cuppa and put them in back order for next week. A massive thanks goes to Lee, Sandra and Tegan Webber for their help with this.

So, this week 210 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 11 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.

The full results and a complete event history can be found on the Harlow parkrun Results Page.

The event was made possible by 30 volunteers:

Roy STEVEN • Spencer BROOKS • Terry RIDGE • John GILLESPIE • Andrew KITSON • Jenny HOLLAND • Alan WELLBELOVE • Ayshea PITE • Julie OSBORNE • Paul STEPHEN • Ethan HOOK • Lex ELLINGTON • Ben USHER • Mick MADDAMS • Lee WEBBER • Michael ROBEY • Sandra WEBBER • Tegan WEBBER • Denise GIGG • Tracie COOK • Natalie TAYLOR • Kim BURNS • Martin MITCHELL • William HALL • Warren CLARKE • Marc WITHAM • Michael SCHMITT • Richard FRYER • Ken ELDRIDGE • John ALLUM

As this week was pacer week, some of these volunteers were pacers. We had 5 pacers to begin with and another 2 stepped up on the day. Thanks to everyone for pacing - we really appreciate you helping our parkrunners to achieve their goals!!

As mentioned in the run briefing this week, we are introducing a "Bring Your Bling" feature which kicks off on Saturday 4th May and will continue on the first Saturday of every month. This is your chance to bring over and show us any medals you may have recently worked hard for. It doesn't matter what distance you've covered, if you've earned it, we want you to shout about it! We know not every event ends with a medal so show us your shirts if you've got one of these instead. We look forward to seeing them.

We are also now starting our preparations for the Harlow Carnival which is being held on Sunday 30th June (a bit earlier than usual) and we are looking for volunteers to come along in parkrun milestone shirts if you have them. Alternatively any of your sportswear will do, if you haven't got a parkrun shirt. If you would like to be involved and help us celebrate all things parkrun, whilst spreading the word in the community, we would love to have you on board so please come and have a word with one of us on the core team.

I think that's it from me for now. I hand over to Lee to be your Run Director next week and hope to see you out on the course.
