12th October Event number 261

Hi All,

We are Definitely entering the wet season now.

 

Just one more week on the grass, and then on the 26th October , we will be changing to A new winter course.

 

We will go into more details next week, but we feel it will be a better course than last winter. Less confusing, and certainly wont be as congested.

 

Well done to everybody that took part last weekend, and thank you for coming to Harlow.

This week 198 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 15 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 26 volunteers:

Those who have completed your 50th or 100th should get your emails very soon, where you can order your Free T-Shirt. ( when you order, it does say a price, but once you go to the next section, it will give you the discount making it free. You then just pay for Postage)

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.

 

As you may know by now we also like to acknowledge unofficial milestones too so say your 50th volunteer or 150th parkrun. Just because you don't get a t-shirt doesn't mean it's still not a fantastic achievement, so let us know.

Upcoming date: 9th November will be our 5th Anniversary run and we would love to celebrate differently. Instead of standing around in the rain and cold giving out prizes we thought we would hire somewhere and make an evening of it. Several people said they would be able to come so we have booked The Link for 7.30pm on that evening and we have a DJ so all ready to go. If you would like to donate £3 per person to help towards the proceedings it would be gratefully received. To do so follow the below link, thanks.

5th October 2019 event no. 260

Hi All,

As we at Harlow parkrun approach our 5th Birthday, last week also saw the 15th Birthday of parkrun Itself.

On Saturday 2nd October 2004, Thirteen runners and five volunteers turned up to Bushy Park in Teddington , London for a Free, Timed 5k run.

Little did they know what they had started!

#parkrun13

1st Event at Bushy park in 2004.....where it all began!

 

In 2006, weekly attendances were reaching close to 300., Paul Sinton-Hewitt ( parkrun founder) agreed the demand was there to start a 2nd  event , and on 6th January 2007, The Wimbledon Common Time Trial Launched.

By the end of 2007, There were 7 events in Total including Brighton, Leeds and Zimbabwe.

In 2008 Events were spreading even more, so UK Time Trials (UKTT) changed its name to become parkrun.

Now In 2019, Over 6 million people are registered, more than 4 million different people  have completed a combined total of 53.8 million parkruns across 21 different countries.

It's an amazing success story, an i'm sure like me, you are all so grateful for what we have today, but it is all made possible by each and everybody that takes part. We all have our own reasons for turning up each Saturday morning, but one things for sure, Ever since I did my very first parkrun, my life changed for the better ,and it is a real joy to share my Saturday mornings with so many wonderful people.

Now, onto our most recent parkrun........

This week 210 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 25 were first timers and 31 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.

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

Hi All,

Well yesterday was a blustery day of Winnie the Pooh proportions! But well done everyone who came along.

This week 241 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 17 were first timers and 39 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 35 volunteers:

Roy STEVEN • Spencer BROOKS • John GILLESPIE • Ryan CLARK • Alan WELLBELOVE • Steve WRIGHT • Martin ELVEN • Miguel LUQUE • Sara COOMBE • Holly DAVIS • Sharon DEAN • Darren RAUTENBACH • Joshua CHINN • Chris GREY • Lex ELLINGTON • Mick MADDAMS • Will DEFOE • Kevin SMITH • Robin DEFOE • Jason FOX • Denise GIGG • Tom FREEMAN • Tracie COOK • Brenda FREEMAN • Martin MITCHELL • Selina MORGAN • Ben SHARROCK • Laura PRIME • Ian MORRISON • Gary DEAN • Joseph SARKODIE • Richard FRYER • John ALLUM • Robert FOXLEY • Lee WOOD

Unfortunately, some of our lovely runners have been taking our tokens as souvenirs.  Please do not take your token home with you, it costs us quite a lot of money to replace them so please hand them in at the end of your race, even if you haven't got your barcode with you.  Thank you.
