Heslington parkrun #104 – International Women’s Day

Heslington parkrun no. 104: International Women's Day with #ThisGirlCan

International Women's Day is not only about celebrating the achievements of women, but also looking at what we can do personally to help improve gender balance at work, in sport, everywhere. Why not invite your female friends and colleagues to join in the next parkrun?

The current holder of the 268 Mile Montane Spine Race record is 35-year-old Jasmin Paris, and at the other end of the distance spectrum this year in February Charlotte Arter broke the female parkrun record (which she held) at Cardiff, setting the new record of 15:49.

This week 205 women ran, jogged, and walked Heslington parkrun. At least 12 of the pacers were women this week covering 20-35minutes. Our run director Clare Stones was volunteering for the 25th time and Emily Baines was the first female home with a time of 18:22.

As well as all the great things women were doing today, we were also joined by 265 men in the chilly March sunshine, including James Chiverton who achieved his 50th Parkrun, and a special guest appearance from Andrew Lane, a tourist from Norwich who was one of the first parkrunners at the original parkrun in Bushy Park. Jack Eggington was our first male home with a PB of 16.24.

Thanks are due to all of the volunteers of all genders, without whom parkrun couldn't happen, and extra thanks for the cake which helped fuel my cycle ride home!

Would like to give a special mention to Amanda Cooper who was our first ever Sign Language support volunteer at Heslington, she did an amazing job of showing how our parkrun encourages everyone to take part. Thank you Amanda.

This week 470 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 68 were first timers and 100 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 34 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 49 volunteers:

Emma SIMMONS • Geoff MARCHMENT • Hollis LANSFORD • Georgina WESTON • Eleanor EASTWOOD • Rob HUNT • Amanda COOPER • Chris COOPER • Celia MAUGHAN • Paul EASTWOOD • James CARTER • Hayley JACKSON • Clare CHAPPELL • Graham ROBERTSON • Rob WHITE • Ian HARGREAVES • William HARGREAVES • Nick BOYD • Kate BOYD • Sally POLKEY • Nick SHIPLEY • Shona GILLEGHAN • Abigail EASTWOOD • Jordan HOWE • Emily BAINES • Louise BARCLAY JOHNSON • Helen GRAINGER • Jackie MITCHELL • Leigh SHIPLEY • Jonny WISE • Amy IREDALE-MITCHELL • Clare STONES • Hayley DUMONT • Spike CHAPPELL • Helena SENIOR • Angela EKERS • Kevin THOMAS • Emma GILMORE • Debbie FALGATE • Julie LINLEY • Lesley KNEVITT • Sarah GALLAGHER • Jon DAKEYNE • Valda BARNETT • Daniel BUTCHER • Joseph DAVIES • Tasmin SARAI • Amy CARTON • Lucas SHIPLEY

 

Heslington Run Report Event #102

If 23mph winds are your thing then Saturday was a real treat as 330 runners, joggers and walkers were propelled, blasted and wafted all over Lakeside Way.
The rain did stay away though - perhaps to the disappointment of Heslington first-timer Albie Gray, representing Great Britain Underwater Hockey (I'm intrigued!).

The squally conditions did not stop James White as he breezed home in 16:59, 54 seconds ahead of the second finisher, while Georgina Weston was first lady.

Georgina was 'taking it easy' by pacing 20 minutes, and she used that reserve of energy to go out and win the Snake Lane 10 mile race in Pocklington in one hour and two minutes on Sunday.

Very well done Georgina, and congratulations to everyone who wound their way around Snake Lane from everyone at Hes.

Back to parkrun and the mind boggles at the combined figure of 1,016 parkruns that Chris Jones and Liz Jones of Hyde Park Harriers have completed after finishing on Saturday.

There were also milestones for Kevin Thomas, reaching his 50th parkrun, while Tom Kingscott clocked his 200th.

Finally, as I write this, the forecast for next weekend is snow joke so don't forget your ice skates, or your barcode.

Heslington parkrun report #98 by Clare Stones

Friday night and the nerves were kicking in......

Tomorrow was parkrun !!! But no ordinary parkrun for me.

Saturday 25th January 2020 and the 98th Heslington parkrun.

Everything was ready and charged, weather checked, roster checked, volunteer instructions sent out, facebook message sent and the important vest ready to wear… tomorrow was my FIRST ever day as “Run Director” all by myself … gulp!

Double alarms set.. I didn’t want to lie in and let anyone down.

By 8.30am all was calm and set up with the help of Jordan Howe, and we were on the cycle track ready for the masses, course checked by the lovely Kate Boyd, Rob Hunt ready on car park duty and volunteers starting to arrive.

Do you know what … I didn’t need to be so nervous as the Heslington parkrun family were there to help and everyone down at Heslington is so supportive.

It was a bit on the cold side for volunteers but perfect running conditions and the adrenaline of the event kept me warm.

Then onto reading my run director report and setting off the runners, joggers and walkers… wow what a feeling, watching everyone on their merry way! Absolutely loved it.

Loved every minute of the being run director and looking forward to my next time, next week I will enjoy being one of the runners for a change.

This week 474 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 52 were first timers and 102 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 40 different clubs took part.

First male home was James McCall bagging himself a PB, first female home was course regular Georgina Weston and first junior home was Jack Slocombe.

A very happy 16th birthday to Ben Gilroy who celebrated by getting himself a PB.

Congratulations to David Galsworthy for his 100th parkrun and also to Glenn Atkinson and Amy Iredale-Mitchell on their 50th parkrun.

The event was made possible by 40 fabulous volunteers who helped make it possible for parkrun to go ahead, a huge thank you to you all for giving up your time and supporting me through the event. Each and every one of you play such an important role in giving the best parkrun experience and you are all awesome.

Saturday 2nd November 2019

Warning: The following tale of unpredictably sunny weather, cheering volunteers and happy, friendly runners may scar you for life. You may feel compelled to join a parkrun! Read on - if you dare!!!!

Saturday morning and a crisp autumn day, leaves turning golden, blue sky - what an amazing day to meet for the 87th Heslington parkrun. With tourists from as far afield as Lewes, Leicester, Worthing, York among other distant places, 260 adults, children, babies and dogs gathered at the starting point raring to go. After a brief introduction from Andy, our run director, and cheers and applause for tourists, first timers and volunteers, we were ready and on the count of ‘5, 4, 3, go’ we were off!

Heslington course is a mixture of track, brick road (but not a yellow brick road so no need for clicky high heels) and, following recent weather, water splashes with attendant white and black swans. It’s an out-and-back course, so you get to see the swans twice and they get the opportunity to sneer at you twice.

And now, first of all, thanks to our volunteers these included:
John CHERRY, Nicola CLEMENTS, Tony COOPER, Sarah DUNNE, Helen GRAINGER, Helen GRANGER, Don GUNN, Amanda HARRISON, Kevin HIND, Jordan HOWE, Sharon LYNN, Andrew & Toby MCMORRIS, Matthew PAGE, Rich RENTON, Nick SHIPLEY, Emma SIMMONS, Jack SLOCOMBE, David SPILLETT, Kevin THOMAS, Karen VAN DER ZEE, Sally WADE, Stephen & Claire WILSON and Jonny WISE
Cheers and a round of applause for your support. We couldn’t have a parkrun without your help.

Celebrating special occasions today were:
Chris Harrison, Ruth Stafford, Abbie Robinson and Elliot Wheeler all completed their 50th parkrun (thanks for the cake and sweets, Chris!). Paul Beal and Andy Braun completed their 100th and Steve Smowton completed his 250th parkrun.

#Drumroll and another round of applause!
A round of applause too to all those celebrating their very first parkrun, you know who you are and should be proud of your achievement. Hope to see you all again next week!

And now for the results.
Male placings:
First past the post in a time of 16:01 was Jordan Howe. He was followed by Rob Byers in 16:07 and Alexander Aldridge with a new PB came in third place with a time of 17:17.

Female placings:
Della Hatfield came in first woman in a time of 19:37, a new PB. She was followed by Katie Wise in a time of 19:40 and Catrin Donnelly who came in third with a time of 20:49.

More milestones:
Today there were 27 first timers. Nice to meet you all. This means that you have all gained a personal best time for this course.
And a further 40 people gained new PBs.

Well done to all of you.

And now a word of encouragement - please don’t think you have to be another Mo Farrah to join us. This week we had people of all paces and, whatever your speed or ability, you are welcome to join us. You will never be the last person in, we have a tail walker who takes that position. For most of us parkrun is not about racing and winning, but a warm and welcoming social event with a run or walk thrown in for good measure. So come along and try us out!

You might even like to join our band of happy volunteers - there are plenty of opportunities to help out and we are always pleased to see new recruits. Just take a look at our parkrun web page and send us an email at heslingtonhelpers@parkrun.com if you would like to take part as a volunteer. See you next Saturday!

 

Saturday 26th October 2019 – event number 86 – Wet ‘n Wild

Wow, #86 was a soggy, wet, puddly parkrun.
There was an especially massive puddle at the foot of our little hill leading to lakeside way.
At least everyone knew about it on arrival.
It was so big Andrew Heather picked up lifeguard duty before funnel managing.
Twice the runners had to go through it, I swear it was worth taking into account the tides.
Lakeside Way had its share of water but nothing as bad as that thankfully.

It was great to see all of the Yorkshire marathon and 10 mile runners looking pretty in pink.
Some great performances too, considering the exertions of the week before.
This weeks first finisher, park-running in (I kid you not) swimming shorts, was fourth in the 10 mile last Sunday. Well done Jordan Howe!
This weeks first lady and 20 minute pacer, Georgina Weston, was on the podium as 2nd lady in the 10 mile race. Well done!

A few of us retired to The Blackbull on the Hull Road to dry off and get some breakfast.
We do this most weeks to do the results and sort the tokens, so if you fancy joining us please do, the breakfast is very good!

Thankfully the forecast looks better for next week, so fingers crossed for a dry one!

This week 220 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 30 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 29 volunteers:
Dave John WILLIAMSON • David MUCKERSIE • Stephen WILSON • Georgina WESTON • Kevin HIND • Amy DYMOND • Emma MUCKERSIE • Celia MAUGHAN • Adrian GUNN • Nick BOYD • Zahra WHITE • Andrew HEATHER • Isaac WHITE • Shazma WHITE • Nick SHIPLEY • Don GUNN • Jordan HOWE • Dave ROBERTSON • David O'CONNOR • Helen GRAINGER • Iain COOPER • Katie WISE • Richard FREEMAN • Lucy HART • Jack SLOCOMBE • Angela EKERS • Emma GILMORE • Lesley KNEVITT • Inna STROGONOVA

Saturday 19th October 2019 – event number 85

It was Yorkshire Marathon and 10 mile eve, many of the usuals Heslington Parkrunners were resting and preparing for the day ahead, though many were still running and volunteering. Jordan Howe and Georgine Weston told me they were taking it easy in preparation for tomorrow; they still managed sub 18 and 20 respectively, which to me isn’t taking it easy!!

329 of us ran, jogged and walked round the course. Of these 66 were first timers and amazing 69 managed a personal best and Heslington had representatives from over 46 different clubs. There was also the usual mix of dogs and prams. I was super impressed by the woman who was running pushing a double buggy she was super fast.

The weather held off for us and though a slight chill it didn’t rain, which is always a positive.

Today we were all able to partake due to the fabulous 37 hi-viz volunteers who make it all possible for us, this week they were,
Vivianne Fraser, Helen Reevell, Jeffrey Woolhouse, Stephen Wilson, Claire Watson, Georgina Weston, Kevin Hind, Emma Reich, Mark Maloney, Eleanor Eastwood, David Watson, Matthew Wilcock, Ewan Kirk, Paul Eastwood, Abbie Eastwood, Graham Robertson, Emily Asquith-Fox, Nick Shipley, Neil Gregory, Jordan Howe, Vikki Thomas, Jake Stephens, James Cann, Helen Grainger, Teresa Huntley, Iain Cooper, Jackie Mitchell, • Jane Wilcock, Lucy Hart, • Claire Wilson, Jack Slocombe, Steve Wright, Kevin Thomas, Maureen Issott, Christy Foley, Lesley Knevitt, Karina Strogonova.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Heslington parkrun Results Page.

A huge well done to all the Heslington Parkrunners who finished both the marathon and the 10 miler on Sunday, the weather was very kind to you in the morning, but my heart did sink when it stared to run after lunch, saw a few of you out on the course you all looked amazing.

The male record is held by Matthew GRIEVE who recorded a time of 15:34 on 16th June 2018 (event number 20).
The female record is held by Emma WAUDBY who recorded a time of 16:51 on 17th November 2018 (event number 40).

Run report #84 – the one with the 3rd highest attendance

Perhaps an unexpected late arrival of some dry weather was the start to Heslington's 84th parkrun and my first visit here.
I arrived relatively early with just a few people around but soon it became clear it was going to be a very popular event and compared with many locations in the county a reassuringly flat course, although hearing the word “cobbles” did have me worried for a moment but the paved section was perfectly pleasant to run on and not a concern at all. Soon there were hundreds of parkrunners around and all looked after today by run director Sharon LYNN, who warmly welcomed us and started off today’s parkrun.
-
Even though parkrun UK recently celebrated its 15th anniversary it continues to grow from strength to strength with 29 brand new to parkrun taking part here today. Tourists visited from all over the country but with nearby York parkrun cancelled, because of the races, first time tourist numbers were rocketed to 87 with many others revisiting leading to an overall parkrun population today of 571, the third highest and very close to a new attendance record.
-
The event would not however have been possible though without 44 wonderful volunteers: Charley BAYLEY, Damian BAKER, Kate BOYD, Jen BREWIN, Stephen CLARKE, Iain COOPER, Paul EASTWOOD, Ian FAIRLAMB, Christy FOLEY, Pauline FOOT, Louise GARDNER, Grace GASGARTH, Lucy GASGARTH, Adrian GUNN, Don GUNN, Spencer HALL, Lucy HART, Andrew HEATHER, Jordan HOWE, Rob HUNT, Ewan KIRK, Lesley KNEVITT, Robin LAVIN, Sam LYNN, Sharon LYNN, Harry LYNN, Andrew MCMORRIS, Michael PEMBERTON, Sylvia PEMBERTON, Graham ROBERTSON, Ste ROBSON, Ruth ROBSON, Nick SHIPLEY, Leigh SHIPLEY, Jack SLOCOMBE, Ashley SMITH, Richard WALKER, Peter WHELAN, Ian WHITE, Rob WHITE, Dylan WILSON, Stephen WILSON, Claire WILSON and Andrew WOODHOUSE.
Thank-you to you all and if you are reading this and want to get involved in future weeks then all details can be found at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/heslington/futureroster/. There many different roles to choose from.
-
Conditions were good today other than navigating around the standing water along the main out and back section and with 11 supporting pacers it perhaps helped towards today’s 101 personal bests. First male finisher was Jordan HOWE in an incredible time of 15:59, his 19th time first across the line and on such a memorable day for distance running. First female finisher was Katie WISE in a speedy time of 19:14 (her 15th time in this position). Top age grade performance was Gill BOYNTON with an impressive 86.02% and Tom DERRY was today’s quickest junior runner with a new PB of 18:10.
In addition a new age category record was set in the VW80-84 age category record by Jeannie E. SNELLING finishing in 42:21.
Congratulations to all of the above but also to everyone who came along today and completed the course whatever your finish times.
Full results can be found at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/heslington/results/latestresults/.
-
Today there were 6 official milestones achieved. Junior Imogen CLEGG completed her 10th parkrun, regular runner Surya THAPA completed his 50th parkrun along with Neil TIMMS and York regulars Nick RUSSELL & Philip HARRIS. Finally local visitor Jonathan STEARNE completed his 250th parkrun. Congratulations to you all and hopefully you believe to receive your T-shirts in the not too distant future.
-
Finally after a coffee in the York Sport Village I said my farewells and headed into the city on a bus service that had kindly waited until we had all completed our parkruns! A great day and a great parkrun!
Damian BAKER, a tourist from Daventry, signing off.

 

Run Report #83 – parkruns 15th Birthday

What a wonderful parkrun that was; the mist, sun and autumnal temperatures made for the perfect start to our Saturday morning. There was a hopeful buzz at the start line as friends new and familiar were mingling and chatting away. Soon came the pre-run briefing, some grateful words to our volunteers and a cheer or three for the milestones and tourists. We were expecting our 3,2,1 and you’re off but Andy had a surprise in store...

Leeds Building Society have partnered with parkrun to create the #BigCommunityRelay; 15 gold batons have made their way to parkruns across the country with the aim of getting parkrunners to take them far and wide. I proudly accepted the spectacular baton and ran a sparkling PB in it’s honour. The baton will make it’s way to Castle Howard parkrun next Saturday as I manage a spot of local tourism with friends. I can’t wait to see the distance that the baton travels over the coming weeks.

But today is not only about a gold baton, it’s about a very special birthday parkrun. 15 years ago Paul Sinton-Hewitt and his pals rocked up at Bushy Park for their first time trial with little idea of what was to come. Fast forward to 2019 and millions of people across the world have taken part in parkrun in some form or other. Thank you Paul for giving us all the gift of parkrun; walkers, runners and volunteers alike have benefited hugely from your
small spark of an idea all that time ago.

This week 362 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 58 were first timers and 83 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 38 different clubs took part. The event was made possible by 33 volunteers:

Mandy CLARKE • Helen REEVELL • Sarah HARVEY • Robin LAVIN • Andrew MCMORRIS • Stephen WILSON • Emma SIMMONS • Richard WALKER • Katherine TYACK-GRANT • Peter WHELAN • Sharon LYNN • Eleanor EASTWOOD • Rob HUNT •

Run Report #82 – By James Cann

I'm pretty sure we just said goodbye to the summer.

What was a temperate week continued into Saturday morning as 307 parkrunners enjoyed 20-degree heat and glorious sunshine at Heslington.

Providing a balmy boost for some, begetting a sweaty slogfest for others, either way we'll miss the sun when it's gone and, with a two-week enforced break now on the cards, we can only hope and pray for an Indian summer.

Also moving on - temporarily at least - is a veteran of 33 runs here and 164 in total, Dan Eastwood. University beckons for the young man who signed off on his current hot streak on Lakeside Way with an impressive sixth-placed finish amid strong competition.

We all wish you the very best Dan and look forward to seeing you back at Heslington once you've finished tearing up the numerous parkruns in Leeds!

Stephen Maddison celebrated his first first-finisher finish, just squeezing past Georgina Weston - second overall for the first time - and seasoned pace-setter Jordan Howe.

Across the representatives of 30 different clubs, we welcomed tourists from London, the Wirral, Cardiff and Dorset and, in such fine conditions, 47 new personal bests were set.

We hope to see as many of you as possible again on October 5. The Met Office promises light rain and a moderate breeze...

Last day of summer? Run report for event #79

Can you believe it’s the last day of August and also the last day of summer? How times flies by. Today 287 courageous participants enjoy warm temperatures but are tested by a sneaky wind creeping up on us challenging our progress but at times providing a much appreciated boost.

I find it so heart warming witnessing the young and the old walk, jog or run the 5 kilometers of Heslington parkrun, some attend for the sheer enjoyment of meeting other people whilst some are keen to get the much heralded PB (personal best). Whatever the reason everyone is made so welcome and looked after by the cheerful and supportive volunteers led this week by our lovely Race Director Ellie Eastwood.

We were also joined today by members of Kitchen for Everyone - York (KEY) who provide meals and support to the homeless and vulnerable people in our area and our generous runners donated sleeping bags, deodorants and wet wipes to this great cause.

Today we celebrate a number of milestones. Becky Horsley (one of our juniors) ran her 10th parkrun. Nick Shipley (one of our regular pacers) celebrated his 50th time volunteering and his wife, Leigh Shipley, celebrated her 50th parkrun. Emma Newman also celebrated her 50th parkrun as did Nicola Brown. Fabulous achievements by all, well done!

This week 287 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 43 were first timers and 39 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 36 volunteers:
