What a glorious morning that was. Just cold enough to firm up the worst of the mud and blue sky all round. Perfect winter running conditions.

As ever it was a huge thanks to all of the volunteers.

Massive congrats to this weeks new run clubbers (Alex LESLIE, Chandra SHEKAR,  Francesca MURRAY,  James DOBSON &  Sarah KINSELLA in the 50 Club. Joseph HARRIS & Paul BLAXALL hit the 100 and David PHELAN ran his 250th parkrun. Well done all)

That's all for this week and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

Just a few reminders.....

Christmas and New Year

This year we will be running on both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. We will be running at 9.00 am on both days.

On New Year’s day you will have the option to “do the double” and register more than one parkrun. There are a number of possible double options from Harrogate (Conyngham Hall - 10:30 - 2.70 miles - Rothwell - 10:30 - 26.20 miles Temple Newsam - 10:30 - 23.04 miles Selby - 10:30 - 30.63 miles  Cliffe Castle - 10:30 - 26.42 miles Frickley Country - 10:30 - 36.55 miles Darlington South Park - 10:30 - 44.52 miles Albert - 10:30 - 46.85 miles Huddersfield - 10:30 - 47.08 miles Clitheroe Castle - 10:30 - 41.29 miles) please do bear in mind your journey time and time to scan your barcode if you are planning on going for a double we really don’t want to encourage people to rush between events.

The closest double option Conyngham Hall in Knaresborough at just 4.25 Kilometres from The Stray (perfect for running or cycling between the two especially as there are no buses running on New Year’s Day, though the trains will be operating).

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 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.

Barcodes - Is your printed barcode looking tired or not scanning easily? There are a range of tough and durable plastic parkrun barcode ID tags and parkrun wristbands available via http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/ These are the only UK authorised and professionally printed tags and feature the parkrun branding and logo, your athlete details and can also be personalised with your ICE (In Case of Emergency) telephone number and additional information including specific medical details. They come in a range of options and can be attached to a key ring, laces, and running vest zip or worn on a lanyard.

Volunteering -  It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday. Harrogate is no exception and without your kindness we would not be able to put on this wonderful free event.

Harrogate parkrun #410 Run Report

It was a lovely autumn morning as we set up the course - a bit damp underfoot (quite damp in places!) but dry overhead, breeze-free and pretty mild for the time of year. Perfect for parkrun we thought.

So we were somewhat perplexed at 8.50 when we noticed that there was hardly anyone about at all. At this point we began to wonder if last week's cancellation had caused confusion and whether the volunteers were going to be surplus to requirements!

Within the next few minutes, however, we were surrounded by 223 of you ready and raring to parkrun. Amongst them were 4 people taking part in their first event plus tourists from various place including Tunbridge Wells and Barnsley. It was great to have you all with us and hope you will join us again.

You can't have failed to spot someone running in suit. This was Darren West who, to celebrate his 100th run, decided to bring some formality to the occasion. But that was not all....he set himself a 'small' challenge. Starting from the back of the pack he committed himself to giving 50p to Children in Need for every runner he overtook - he finished in 32nd place - we'll let you work out how much he raised!

Also celebrating this week is junior Freya Parker who has earned her aubergine tee, having clocked up 25 separate volunteering stints - a fabulous achievement and a high-five also goes to Graham Smith, the newest member of the 50 club.

That's all for this week and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

Well it was a little damp as we set up this week

But we weren't about to let a little Yorkshire weather dampen the big day. Yep we had another parkrun wedding . Huge congratulations to KC ad Dougie who started their wedding day with three soggy laps of the Stray along with most of the wedding party.

As ever we couldn't do it without the volunteers who this week deserve an extra special thanks as conditions were truly atrocious.  Despite ths they were all smiles to the end !

Ok so the tea helped too ...

And that' about it.

Just 2 bits of housekeeping.

1) We did have reports of at least 2 runners running on the road. This is hugely disappointing. We say it almost every week in the run briefing and our permissions do not allow it. So it really is 100% not allowed. We will remove the results of anyone who can not comply with this.

2) We had a spot of bother with one scanner getting soggy this week if you are not on the results email in to harrogate@parkrun.com and we'll fix it.

Harrogate parkrun #407 Run report

Although I’ve been told it’s “not a thing”, I thought it would be fitting to mark the 50th time that I’ve pushed my little one (Hannah) around parkrun in a buggy, by volunteering to write this week’s run report. Hopefully it provides a little insight to the wonderful world of buggy running.

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, grass, sky, tree, outdoor and nature

Before Hannah came along I’d seen numerous buggy runners at parkrun and I’d always assumed that it really couldn’t be that much tougher than running solo. Although it is far more fun than I’d imagined it would be, it also brought obstacles that I’d not even considered.

Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor and nature

Not only do you have the more obvious issues to contend with - such as: headwinds, hills, mud, grass, pronounced tree roots to navigate, the general loss of the momentum of your arms that are now clinging on to the buggy, the extra weight of your precious cargo - you’re also contending with sleep deprivation and a pre-parkrun routine that needs to run to like clockwork in order to get to the start line for 9am. Not to mention the mid race risk of punctures.

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

When you add a buggy and a child to your parkrun preparations they go from just having to get yourself dressed and remembering your all-important barcode, to also remembering to pack the change bag, the rain cover/sun shade (you never know which will be needed), footmuff, coat, hat, toys and, of course, the buggy. All this in addition to making sure your child is changed, dressed and has had their pre-run feed. It’s a true parental team effort.

After 50 times of doing this routine we’ve just about nailed it, so this morning we were down at the Stray by 8:45am.

By the time the run briefing started at 9am we’d been joined by an impressive total of 340 runners – it was great to see that the group included at least 3 other buggy runners.

This week’s run briefing had quite a list of shout outs to cover. Firstly and most importantly was the thank you to the wonderful team of volunteers – without whom there would be no parkrun!

There was a massive shout out for Ellie and David who had chosen to do Harrogate parkrun with their strong contingent of friends to kick off their wedding day celebrations – many congratulations to you both.

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing, grass, outdoor and nature

There were some parkrun milestone announcements today too - well done to Paul Andrew for joining the 100 Club and congratulations to both Kevin Scott and Mitch Barnes on joining the 50 Club.

Then it was on to the main event. Weather conditions were actually pretty good, it wasn’t too cold, there was only a light breeze and there was only the occasional drop of rain in air. However, there was plenty of water and mud under foot! It’s definitely feels like it’s time to dust off those trail shoes - we were all slipping and sliding around corners 2 and 3. Thankfully I’d put the rain cover on the buggy as mud was flying everywhere but Hannah remained sound asleep and totally mud free – first rule of buggy running, the welfare of the passenger comes first!

Well done to everyone who walked, jogged and ran this week. Despite the muddy conditions, I counted 17 runners that achieved new Personal Bests today – kudos to you all. There was also 18 first time parkrunners this week – I hope you enjoyed your debut runs and will be coming back for many more.

I’ll finish up by saying a huge thank you to all the volunteers and fellow runners for your support and encouragement over these last 50 runs. Here’s to the next 50!

Just a few reminders.....

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!

What a weekend ! It all started with Super Saturday!

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)

That's it for now, just a few reminders.

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.

Barcodes - Is your printed barcode looking tired or not scanning easily?

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
