Hay Lodge parkrun is cancelled on 2020-10-31 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Northgate (Not)parkrun #1 11th April 2020.

There was a great turnout for the first running of notparkrun at Northgate in Peebles.  The sun shone on the runners and volunteers alike adding to the happy atmosphere.

The Run Director was Penelope Penguin who headed up a very able set of volunteers who sang and cheered on the runners from start to finish. P1240236 (2)P1240264 (2)

The first finisher was Rosa the Troll in what was a very impressive time of 55 minutes and 18 seconds.

This was also an Easter special and the Easter Egg hunt was won by Bertie McBear who looked somewhat less than impressed by his good fortune.  We think he was expecting a real golden egg.

A great day for all rounded off with coffee and bacon rolls.  Hoping to see you all at the next event.

A message from the core team

A note to all Hay Lodge parkrunners

All parkrun events are suspended until at least April – to be honest, it looks like June / July will be a good result.

Thankyou for your support.  We hope you’ve enjoyed your parkrun experience to date and will be back when we return.  A few pics below to "jog" your memories.

Event #63 14th March 2020

It was a great way to finish before the inevitable suspension of events.  Peebles Tuesday Cubs + parents were fantastic volunteers – keen, vocal and supportive.  Thanks to Morag (Akela) and her team for organising the group of Cubs and parents and the cakes…..

Event #62 7th March 2020

Thanks to all the walkers, joggers and runners who turned up and celebrated International Women’s Day.  For the first time we had more registered female participants than male participants.

It was a great atmosphere with a mix of groups.  The Tri-Athlon training group in the Borders for the weekend, hence no barcodes for the first four finishers.  Thanks to Jo Cunliffe and her Runnagades Fitness Group who “buddied” some first-time female participants and the family groups with lots of Mums, Dads, Daughters and Sons.  It was great to see you all.

Event #61 29th February 2020

After two weeks of storms and flooding we finally got going again.  A brief hail shower before the start didn’t put anybody off and it turned out to be a lovely morning with a good turnout.

This week 100 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 13 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

David Carter Brown led them home with Gillian Car the first female finisher – well done to both.

For the first time ever we set the course up in reverse. We avoided the grass sections which were saturated but the key parts were all there.  Some participants enjoyed the three short sharp uphill sections followed by long smooth downhill laps but some thought is was bit hard.  The overall view was that we should do it again on a special occasion – and we will!

Don’t forget that this coming Saturday (7th March) we’re celebrating International Women’s Day and we want to encourage as many women and girls as possible to take part.  Everyone is welcome but if you’re a regular attender bring a female relative, friend or colleague.

Women and girls make up well over 50% of registered parkrunners but many find it hard to get started.  To help with this, local running group “Runnagades Running Fitness” will be there on Saturday to buddy up with anyone who wants a pal to go round the course with.  It doesn’t matter what speed you do just come along and enjoy the scenery and the chat (before, after and during the walk or run).

This weeks event was made possible by 13 volunteers:

Ian NIMMO • Sheena TURNER • Fiona NICOL • Archie CAMERON • Martin KELSO • Audrey AITKEN • Sharon COWLE • Neil CHRISTIE • Deirdre CAMERON • Debbie KELSO • Jennifer WATSON • Lynne POPLEY • Donald MACLEOD

Come and see us if you’d like to volunteer.
