Event #177 Saturday February 15th 2020

Waiting for Dennis

The threat of storm Dennis didn’t stop 123 people joining us for our 177th parkrun run from the memorial gardens in Ottershaw.

The Mimosa tree was covered in small yellow flowers and was a burst of colour as you entered the car park.

We had 19 first timers join us many who regularly do nearby events that had been cancelled.

Despite the conditions Chris Dyson ran a speedy 18:14 and Alex Slotwinska 22:40 to finish 1st male and female home.

4 other runners achieved pb’s Christina Donova-Rossa, Jonathon Otter, Ed Freeman and William Rutherford

We couldn't do Homewood parkrun without our volunteers, so if you don't do so already please consider helping out now and again, just ask anyone in high-viz and we can put you down on the volunteer list, there are plenty of jobs, and they are all fairly straight forward, but vital, to the running of the event, some of which you can do and still run.

First male this week was Andy MCEWAN on 20:12, and first female, Karen BRYANT of Guildford & Godalming AC on 22:58.

International Women’s Day parkrun, 7th March, 2020

At Homewood parkrun, we are delighted to be one of the parkruns participating in the celebration of International Women’s Day, also supported by This Girl Can – which you may have seen on social media.

Of course everyone is welcome at parkrun – always!

But the figures and research show that women are less likely to take part in parkrun. Despite the fact that females make 54% of registrations, they are less likely than men to take part in parkrun and to continue participating. International Women’s Day #IWDparkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate.

There are many barriers that hold people back – as #ThisGirlCan has been highlighting.

So we invite you all to come along on 7th March 2020 for a parkrun celebrating female participation. Please do talk to the women and girls that you know about how great parkrun is, support them to overcome any worries that they have and come along, have fun and come and enjoy the friendly tea/coffee/cake in the cafe afterwards. Bring your mum, your mate, your sister, your daughter......
