Fortunately our crack team of volunteers were up to the job and even arranged a glimmer (ok only a glimmer) of sunshine ready for 323 of you to get your three laps in.

We had a chat with the parkrun weather fairy mid run and after a moist start she came through and the sun was shining by time we headed off to Café Marconi to uuurm... not process the results cause I'd forgotten a vital cable....oops (but never mind we got them done later before heading out to watch the UCI Womens race in glorious sunshine)

Speaking of bike and all things bike racing it was a pleasure to welcome Chris Boradman to Harrogate parkrun. Great to see him get his parkrun fix before heading to town to talk on the telly (ps don't forget your barcode next time - he's the unknown in p113 in case you were wondering)

Harrogate parkrun #402 run report

Well it was certainly a busy morning. We had 487 runners and walkers. Many pacers, visitors and and first timers. Weather conditions some what perfect.

There were a number of PB's. One in particular was our lovely Janet Jarvis who bagged her 100th run combined with a PB. Thank you to the many pacers who offered on the morning to help make this happen. Janet shared this experience with cake, family and friends. We are happy to report, her birthday celebrations for the week are active and definitely not what you would expect of many people in their 70's. Well done Janet!

More superb Harrogate runners bagged a mile stone run. Congratulations to Ben PEARCE on your 10th and Lee Roberts on your 50th run.

We had a fantastic photographer today who managed to snap some brilliant pictures: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPryTiudu36OiVoddZR4jtw8GtWtW0LkyGvutCd-H05SEcaqerFQTrt2QIynJb4Pg?key=Q1V5eGFNMkh1MGVkVUs0U2ZERGx3aXRNN1VjaER3

A big thank you to the stunning team of volunteers who managed quite a number of things that morning. Fences to work round, altered starts and a football pitch. Thank you to those who helped the young man who hurt his knee, searched for a lost phone and jumped on to help scan and keep the funnel moving. The good news is, all was well. On a similar note, we were short of some volunteers for bar code scanning in particular. We appreciate all the lovely people who have since offered to help. parkrun is run by volunteers and they are all heroes, be that hero!

Next weekend is the big UCI. We are planning to go ahead. After chats with the various parties we see no reason to not. However, do check the Facebook page as we will post updates on there Saturday morning. We would suggest not driving as it may be busy.

That's it from me, see you all again soon

Harrogate parkrun #401 Run report

Well, it was another beautiful morning on the Stray made all the more beautiful by seeing 463 of you out on the start line. God, nothing makes me happier than seeing you parkrunners with your excited little parkrun faces. And what a way to start with little James perched on this Run Director’s shoulders to blow the starting whistle (good whistle action, there, James. Maybe a little more practice needed, but a solid first effort. 9/10 from me…).

Now, can you believe this? We had 90 personal records broken today – an incredible number of personal bests. Well done, sausages, you’ve earned yourselves an extra cup of tea for that effort. Add to that number the 30 first timers who lined up for their three laps. Thanks for coming and we really hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we enjoyed meeting you. Before we move on to the roll call of milestones, birthdays and general outpourings of love and adorations, there’s time for a quick hello to our visitors from Sutton (population of 204,525 squeezed into 16.93sq miles, if you’re taking notes) and from Tasmania. Lovely to have you with us and welcome to God’s Own County.

Sarah Lofthouse celebrated her 50th parkrun with getting herself a brand new personal best. She’s from Nidd Valley, you know, which is scientifically proven to be the best running club in town (sorry, Ted). There were huge celebrations too for Sue Simpson (also Nidd Valley #justsaying) who marked her 250th parkrun. Sue was really worried that I’d use the run briefing to remind people that she once got locked in toilets on the Stray before parkrun a couple of years ago. So I won’t mention the fact she got locked in the lav. When it comes to Sue being locked in the lav, everyone here at parkrun HQ would appreciate it if you could keep it to yourself. Thanks very much.

While we are singing people’s praises from the rooftops, we’ve got to take the time to sing a very happy birthday to Mabel Stoner who celebrated her sixth birthday with three laps of the Stray. Also marking his birthday, Mark Shelton may be approaching the age where birthdays are less of a cause for celebration, but there were still some cheers for Mark before he went home for his 38 birthday bumps.

Thanks very much – as ever – to the wonderful volunteers who keep the event humming and turned out again this week. Special thanks go to this week's tail walker, Neil Ramshaw, who took his 200th spin round the Stray today. A great achievement, I think!
