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:

Harrogate parkrun #394 Run Report

Well we managed to dodge the showers and we had perfect running conditions for this weeks run. The Stray is slowly getting back to normal with more of the temporary fencing having gone.

As ever it's a huge thank you to all of this weeks volunteers who made the parkrun magic happen you're all stars.

It was great to see so many of you arrive by bike. This was especially useful for the buggy runner who had a flat tyre half way round and was helped by a park-running cyclist who happened to have a pump on his bike stopping on lap two for a pit stop :-)

Harrogate parkrun Run Report #392

It was great to arrive at the Stray this week and see that most of the temporary fencing had come down and things were getting back to normal. So it was one one quick lap to measure the course and on with the run.

Conditions were near perfect dry, warm and not much breeze.

We had a brilliant team of volunteers this week with some perfect pacing by Sam 'to the second' Fugill. We did have a few problems with the scanners not loving the sunshine so thanks to the extra volunteers who stepped in to scan on the app too it really helped.

Here are a few more pics from this weeks run:

Harrogate parkrun Run Report #390

This bumper double run report is mostly thanks to one of our volunteers, I have been pretty busy of late and when offered I snapped it up on the spot. He also tuck the time to note some local runs that folks maybe interested in doing? They are later on so do scroll down. As an FYI quite a few core volunteers are running at endure24 over at Leeds. We might be doubling back to set up parkrun and then head off back to Leeds. There are some lovely people in for volunteering this coming week and it looks to be a great morning, thank you hi-viz heroes. Furthermore your patience is gratefully received as the results may not be as quick.

Hurrah! Summertime has officially arrived and with it, faultless conditions
for 411 parkrunners.   
Among them were 43 visitors and 20 ran for the very first time. 

What wonderful volunteers we had. There was cheering, there was scanning, there was time clicking and pacing. Each and everyone who helped was amazing. Special thanks to those who who tried out new roles for the first time. Thank you so much for your help! Sometimes everything just comes together beautifully. Perfect set of results, beautiful volunteers and fantastic runners :D

Our most far-flung visitor from Crawley, Glenn Mitchell, made the trip worthwhile by coming home first, with Tom Borrowdale of the Harriers second and Patrick Craig
from Harrogate Tri Club finishing third with a new PB. James Annan came from
Settle to take the top age graded spot.

Sharon Hardcastle, celebrated her 70 mile ultra along Hadrian's Wall by being the first lady home. Yes some of our runners enjoy the long haul runs ( just over 5km :) ) a few of our regular volunteers do and on the quiet but its nice to celebrate all the same. Charlotte Gibson and Rosalyn Moore finished second and third.


100 club runners included Franz Sevenich -who made his anniversary parkrun last
by tail walking, and Ben Johnson. Michael Rogers and Neil Kerby join the
queue for the red 50 shirts.

Meanwhile, the junior 10 club now includes
Jacob Bullivant, Henry Beagley and most notably, Emily Harris-Jones who has
thrown herself so enthusiastically into the parkrun way that she even ran in
the inaugural woman's parkrun team at the Knaresborough Bedrace.

Harrogate parkrun Run Report #389

It's safe to say that so far this month, hot June hasn't touched the heat other than humidity. After a week of wet weather, it was a relief that parkrun was dry from the ground up and firm underfoot. Not least for one bride to be and her bridesmaids, who
sneaked in a quick 5K before hot-footing to her wedding preparations or more hen do fun. Its important to have priorities and to some, it is running :D

With such fine running conditions, 417 parkrunners completed the course. Among the 28 newcomers to parkrun there were 20 visitors enjoying Harrogate's course for the first time. Now there were a few PB's this week and well done if it was you. Equally, if your like me and giving it your all or just enjoying the course, I haven't had a PB for years and its still a great achievement to me just to run o walk. So here's to all of the majority who don't get PB's and love it all the same. Also a big cheer to our superb volunteers. Thank you!

David Wilson of the Thames Hare and Hounds took a minor diversion to overshoot lap three to corner 1 and back, yet still managed to finish first. Robert Smith of the Harrogate Harriers finished
behind him by a mere second, with George Fisher third. 

Four years and one small person arriving since she last achieved this feat,
Rosalyn Moore was first lady home, with Rachel Forrest and Angela Baker
Charleton finishing second and third. 
Sticking it to Old Father Time, Quentin Harding and Yvonne Alys Skelton
managed age-graded scores that would be the envy of many runners half their
age.

Five runners joined the Fifty Club, so congratulations to Jennifer
Carne, Cathy Lawson, Louise Street, Nicky Whittaker and Catherine Taylor
joining the queue for the coveted red shirts.  Among the junior runners,
Dominic Jackson completed his tenth parkrun, so expect the white shirt to
arrive soon. 
Special congratulations to six year-old Macauley Halliday on completing the
exclusive pushchair to parkrun  training course. His dad, Paul, has been a
Harrogate parkrun regular from its inception, latterly pushing Macauley
round from a few months old in all conditions until finally, Halliday Jr
managed his first one on two legs. Before you know it, he'll be accumulating
shirts like nobody's business. Everyone had a wonderful day of running with milestones, PB's and just good clean healthy fun.

Can't settle for just parkrun in your running life? Why not support your local
races. Shorter races are perfect for summer
and there are still entry places available for the following events.
Besides, some of the best races are the runs you enter at the last minute
with low expectations, so dive in and go beyond what you think you can run!

Harrogate parkrun Run Report #388

This week saw us follow our regular route around the Stray -much to the dismay  of a few people who were hoping that the still-present fencing signalled the running of a reverse course - sorry to disappoint!

The weather was just about on our side: there was a persistent fine drizzle but being such a hardy bunch, well-used to everything the Stray weather gremlins throw at us, we weren’t about to let that put a dampener on proceedings.

We had a great turnout which included visitors from Scunthorpe and its not so near neighbour Melbourne – it was lovely to welcome you to Harrogate and we hope you enjoyed your visit. We were also joined by some first timers  – fantastic to have you with us at the start of your parkrun journey and we hope to see you again very soon. Also amongst the pack were a number of Bed Race participants taking the opportunity to have a warm-up run in preparation for the madness and mayhem later in the day.

So here is this week’s parkrun in numbers:

Event number 388 was completed by 451 participants, of whom 31 were 1st  time visitors and 18 were completely new 2 parkrun, amongst them 34 people bagging a PB, all of whom were supported by 23 fabulous hi-vis heroes, 3 of those helping 4 the 1st time, 1 other also volunteering at the Bed Race, and producing 1 new milestone member, of the 50 Club with high 5's  going 2  JAMIE NOBLE. Thanks a 1,000,000 2 each and every 1 of you 4 making the fun happen.

Enjoy the rest of the week and see you all again soon.

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? 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.

Harrogate parkrun run report #387

With Goldilocks weather conditions today, not too hot and not too cold! Harrogate and Nidderdale Scouts joined the run with a parkrun take over.

As always at these events it is the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that hits you first and today was no exception.

As it is the start of national volunteer week it was great to join forces with two great movements that draw their strength from the volunteers it recruits.

Many of our young runners and volunteers experienced the parkrun for the very first time whilst others in our group were seasoned runners. So, a huge thank you to all volunteers both here at parkrun and in the wider community.

Some comments from our first-time scouting runners today. “It was awesome.” “I have never run that far before in my life!” I never knew so many people ran” So maybe some long term converts in the making.
If you are interested in volunteering for scouting as a leader or you have a skill that you could offer as a one off evening for a group then please contact me on cc@nys.org.uk.

We would like to thank the parkrun team for allowing us to come along.
