Harrogate parkrun #406 Run Report

Like every Saturday morning the essential ingredients came together just before 9am to ensure another perfect parkrun.

We had great conditions – no breeze, it was very mild and even better following the current weather pattern of rain one day and then fine the next, parkrun luckily fell on a ‘fine’ day. With the UCI World cycling championships a distant memory the Stray was obstacle free which made setting up a doddle.

Thanks as always to our team of wonderful volunteers, without whom there would be no parkrun. A special mention to first-time visitor Gail Jazmik from Glossop who likes to volunteer on tour and so sorted the tokens for us – all 427 of them.

Congratulations go to another of this week’s helpers – regular Edward Green who has earned his purple tee for 25 separate volunteering stints.

Other milestone shoutouts go to: Junior Leah Purdie – Abbott who joins the 10 club, Ewa Scott the 50 Club, Philip Robinson earning his 100 tee and Simon Watson who is the latest member of the 250 club – well done to all of you.

In fact hi-fives to everyone who walked, jogged and ran this week, you all deserve a huge ‘well done’ - especially the 14 fabulous people who joined us for their very first parkrun and who we hope will be back soon for their next one.

That’s it for this week. See you all again on Saturday!

And now for the official bits:

Post run refreshments - Join us at Caffe Marconi (2 Princes Square) each week after parkrun to catch up, process the results, have a coffee and a good old chat. The food (oh my, the cakes..!) and drinks are great and Sarah and her team are huge fans of parkrun! It's good fun and you can even get your result early!

In Case of Emergency - Please double check that your emergency contact details are complete and up to date on your parkrun profile. You'll find a link to your profile on your weekly results email and newsletters or via this How can I access my profile / account? link. It only takes a few moments, put could really help us to help you if and when you most need it.

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…).

Image may contain: one or more people, crowd, tree, sky, grass, outdoor and nature

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.

Image may contain: 1 person, grass, outdoor and nature

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!

That’s your lot from me. Excellent running all round team and see you all next week. Have a wonderful week.

Harrogate parkrun #398 Run report

Was it going to be hit or miss ? That's what we were wondering when setting up on the Stray for Harrgate parkrun 398.

Yep it was pretty gloomy when Sir Keith did his measuring lap. Luckily we've got the parkrun weather fairy on speed dial and we had a word. So it was blue sky's all the way.

As ever we couldn't make the magic happen without our volunteers so a huge round of virtual applause for RD Louisa and her awesome team of volunteers.

Top work too by all 360 fantastic runners and walkers who all remembered that it's a run not a race and kept a smile on their face.

A special shout out too this lot from the area's premier running club :-) It was fabulous to see a big contingent of Team Striders making the most of Conyngham Hall being cancelled by running over from Knaresborough and then back again, awesome.

On a blustery morning Harrogate parkrun was a sea of black and gold. We were blessed to have one of our local clubs takeover all of the volunteer roles giving the core team a break. It was a massive turn out for the club with 52 members volunteering and many more running the course to give encouragement to other participants.

Nidd Valley provided a large number of pacer this weekend which we hope assisted in the 43 personal bests. At the end there was a table of goodies for everyone to enjoy which was well deserved for all those completing the course.

Nidd Valley Road Runner is a friendly club which was formed in 1984 they are affiliated to UK Athletics, the governing body for their sport in the UK. The club’s colours of gold and black were originally taken from those of Harrogate Town FC where the club was based in its early days. The training venue moved to Harrogate Railway AFC in Starbeck in 1991 with a growing membership attracting both experienced runners and first-timers from all around the Harrogate district and beyond. Today their headquarters are close to the town centre at Harrogate Hockey Club. For more details on the club to include training sessions click on this link to visit their website.

Harrogate parkrun saw visitors for near and far with visitors from Portsmouth, Boston Spa, Chapel Allerton, Wetherby, York and Sheffield just to name a few. We had 35 different clubs on the course this week and a massive 57 first timers.

We would like to remind participants that we share the stray with other users and we ask that you greet other users kindly. We do use a road on the stray which is access for home owners to drive down. We ask that this access is respected and not abused. We received a complaint from one of our neighbours that a parkrunner was abusive to a driver using the access road while driving to one of the houses. Please go around any vehicles using this access road as we do not have the right of way.

This week 444 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 57 were first timers and 43 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 35 different clubs took part.

We can’t host an event without volunteers and this week the event was made possible by 53 volunteers from Nidd Valley Road Runners:
