Harlow parkrun #293 – 18 September 2021

Hello,

What a busy week it was!

193 people ran, jogged and walked our fab course, of whom 12 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

We had a bit of a struggle to fill all of our volunteer roles this week but we go there in the end and I would like to say thanks to the 25 people who helped out:

Roy STEVEN • John GILLESPIE • Colin MOODY • Steve WRIGHT • Sara COOMBE • Claire COOTES • Sharon DEAN • Dax RUST • Lisa TYE • Lee WEBBER • Sandra WEBBER • Tegan WEBBER • Denise GIGG • Tom FREEMAN • Tracie COOK • Brenda FREEMAN • Graham BURTON • Martin MITCHELL • Judith GAY • Yasmin GREGORY • Gary DEAN • Mike BECK • John ALLUM • Aussie BULLMAN • Lesley PERRY

It can be a little stressful worrying all week if you will be able to hold the event so, if you are able to assist, please do let us know as soon as possible.

We had a runner who took a fall this week and I would like to thank the people who stepped forward to help out to make sure the runner was ok. Thankfully he was fine after a little cleaning and patching up.

There was also a bit of a delay with results processing as I am just getting used to it all again after such a long time off so thanks for bearing with me :-)

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

I am handing over to Lee now and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Take care, Tracie x

Harlow parkrun #292 -11th September 2021

Hi everyone,

How happy was I to be back as your Run Director for event #292? It's been a long time coming but you guys made it worth the wait.

200 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 17 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

It was also the first time I got to process the results after our volunteers used their own phones to capture times and barcode/token details. Everything went smoothly which was a huge relief for me. We also had the lovely Tegan Webber completing her 50th run with her dad, Lee. Well done, Tegan!

The event was made possible by 29 volunteers and as always we are so grateful for their support. The 29 people were:

Susan MALONEY • Vicky CALVER • Roy STEVEN • Paulene GALOPPI • John GILLESPIE • Colin MOODY • Jenny HOLLAND • Alan WELLBELOVE • Sara COOMBE • Luella DIXON • Abigail KITSON • Lee WEBBER • Darren SMITH • Tom FREEMAN • Tracie COOK • David JOHNSON • Brenda FREEMAN • Graham BURTON • Judith GAY • David MCEWEN • Ronald PEACOCK • Kim CASHIN • Tom CASHIN • John ALLUM • Amanda MARTIN-HOSE • Eliza-May MARTIN-HOSE • Aussie BULLMAN • Lillie-Rose MARTIN-HOSE • Eva-Louise MARTIN-HOSE.

If you can help with a volunteering role this week please do let us know.

I will be your RD again this week and I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

Enjoy the rest of the week :-)

Harlow parkrun Event #287

7th August, 2021

Hello parkrunners. It was a very interesting parkrunday wouldn't you say? But if there's one thing we know, it's that parkrunners and volunteers aren't put off by all forms of weather that gets thrown at us in this country!! The community still comes together to fulfill the event every Saturday come what May, June, November or January.

Janet Burton definitely hasn't been put off, as she completed her 100th parkrun today. Thank-you for the large bag of celebratory sweets that were shared out to others.

We had 27 volunteers this week all here at their proper times ready to fill the roles they put their names down for. Without them there would not have been a Event #287. How about a round of applause for each & every one of them:  John ALLUMRachel BAYLISSStewart BROWNAussie BULLMANSara COOMBEBobby DRAPEREmma ELVENBrenda FREEMANTom FREEMANPaulene GALOPPIJudith GAYJohn GILLESPIEDavid JOHNSONRobin Peter LOZEAUSusan MALONEYMillie MCGOVERNPeter MILLSDonna MILTONPat O'FLAHERTYDavina SMITHRyan SMITHRoy STEVENLisa TYELee WEBBERAlan WELLBELOVEGlen WILSONSteve WRIGHT.

As next weekend is the start of the football season, how about everyone wearing a football team shirt(you can beg, steal or borrow one if you don't have one!)?

Thank-you for reading this & we will see you again next week to do it all over again. All the best, Robin Lozeau, Run Director for 7  &  14 August, 2021

#285 Harlow parkrun Returns

Event number 285
24th July 2021

Hello , I do hope yourselves and your families have kept as well as can be throughout the past 16 months.

Isn't it great to be back!

70 Saturday mornings we have been away, we have all been getting ourselves into new routines, But you cant beat a Saturday morning at parkrun can you!

This week 181 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 27 were first timers and 13 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

We have been working hard behind the scenes to get things sorted out, and with the changes we are learning to adapt and hope the Saturday morning experience is still as enjoyable as before. Changing to the volunteer app was a bit daunting, but i have to say that i was quite pleased with how it went, and was impressed with the time it saved when it came to processing results.

May I take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers this week, I hope you enjoyed helping out. Your efforts are really appreciated by us all.

The event was made possible by 28 volunteers:

Peter MILLS • Colin BAKER • Robin Peter LOZEAU • Thomas PENKETH • John GILLESPIE • Jim MARTIN • Alan WELLBELOVE • Sharon WRIGHT • Steve WRIGHT • Sara COOMBE • Nadeem GHANI • Lizzie WHITBY • Millie MCGOVERN • Kelly BURGESS • Harriet PENKETH • Lisa TYE • Lee WEBBER • Sandra WEBBER • Robin DEFOE • Tom FREEMAN • Tracie COOK • Brenda FREEMAN • Martin MITCHELL • Steve PAGE • Ryan SMITH • Judith GAY • John ALLUM • Karen DAVIES

  We will be relying on you all to have a go at helping out, so Please let us know if you can help by sending an email to harlowoffice@parkrun.com and we will add you to the roster

If lots of you download the 'parkrun Virtual Volunteer' app, you can 'jump in' after your run, scan a few people, followed by our QR code, and you would automatically added to the roster for doing so. It would help keep the queues down, and would help us to get the results done even quicker.

We do have other jobs where you can help AND run/walk. Set up, close down , scan .....and for those that finish fairly near the front of the pack, Funnel manager.

For those of you that took part, we hope you enjoyed the course, but most importantly, felt the course was clearly sign posted , and that you were never far from help if you needed it.

With regards to making our results run smoothly, the key thing to remember is as follows:-

If you pass our timekeepers.....you WILL be timed.....in which case...you MUST then take a finish token to make sure the watches and tokens stay 'in sync'. (If you realise after you have been timed that you haven't done all 3 laps, or you went back for somebody and accidentally crossed the line a second time, or haven't got a barcode....Please STILL TAKE A TOKEN. It sounds strange, but that is far easier to sort out. Just speak to your Run Director and they will do their best to amend the results. If you do not have a barcode, you wont get a result that day, but still take the finish token to keep everything 'in sync' , but then pop the token into a scanners bucket on your way past, no need to queue)

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

Thank you for making my Saturday morning such a joy.

I hope to see you all again next week.

Lee Webber

Hello Everybody.

It was nice to get out and about in the Town park Saturday morning. With all the goings on in the world at the moment, things are all a bit up in the air, so a bit of Normality was a refreshing change.

Thank you all so much for your help in making sure the results were easy for me this week. I really didn't mean to sound like I was moaning, but just wanted to get across how the system works, and what we can all do to keep the results as accurate as possible. When they don't work out correctly, it plays on my mind and I don't like letting anybody down.

This week 250 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 45 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 30 volunteers:

Susan MALONEY • Robin Peter LOZEAU • Vicky CALVER • Roy STEVEN • Paulene GALOPPI • John GILLESPIE • Colin MOODY • Andrew KITSON • Jenny HOLLAND • Steve WRIGHT • Abigail KITSON • Lewis WOODROW • Tony RUSSELL • Lee WEBBER • Sharon BROOKS • Emily WEBBER • Robin DEFOE • Denise GIGG • David JOHNSON • Martin MITCHELL • Michelle BURNAGE • Michael SCHMITT • Tony HARMAN • Glenda FYFE • Ros GOFF • Geoff PRESTON • Pauline PRESTON • Aussie BULLMAN • Karen ZWETSLOOT • Graham CHIPPETT

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

This week we had 3 more Milestones .....

First of all, We had Colin Baker and Dave Nicholas who completed their 50th parkrun,

We also had Matt Margetts celebrating his 100th parkrun. He tried to show up last minute to avoid any attention, but Our people made sure His arrival didn't go un-noticed, so he got a SECOND shout out !!!!

Congratulations Guys.

Please remember to let us know if you have a Milestone run coming up so we can give you a Mention in our Brief.

I'm sure you are now aware that we have been told by parkrun HQ that we have to cancel our event until at least the end of March. I would ask you all , Please DO NOT just turn up and run on Saturday at 9am. Regardless of opinions, we have to respect the experts advice, and avoid contact with others during this time. Hopefully, if we all follow the advice, then things will be able to return to normal as soon as possible. Steve has suggested we all do our own 5k run from our own house , maybe wear your parkrun shirts , then you could write a post onto our Facebook page telling us how it went, and maybe add a picture. Things will definitely feel strange for us all, but I hope you will all keep up a good fitness routine, and I look forward to seeing you all again, Fit and well , at our next event. We will try to keep you up to date with any developments as we get more information from HQ.
