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. If you would like to help out please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harrogate/volunteer/for more information or talk to anyone in a yellow vest on parkrun day and then email us at email@example.com to get involved.
