It was a delight to honour Sarah Lewis, pictured above, reaching her 50th parkrun. Congratulations to Rachel Boyd on achieving her 50th milestone also.

Active4Run10   Our event was made possible by our volunteers this week, with a third from local club ActiveRun volunteering for the first time. Their feedback emphasised a will to join us again (it was very enjoyable!), and mirrored the results of parkrun's biggest survey exploring the health and benefits of parkrun. A major insight revealed that volunteering had a bigger impact on health and wellbeing than just running or walking. Keen to volunteer in the future and reap the benefits? Please email us: hovepromenadehelpers@parkrun.com

Many thanks for your contribution this week:

Hove Promenade parkrun #212 – 5th October 2019

The one with the new friends from Down Under, parkrun turns 15, the milestone runners, why "everybody needs good neighbours", the reluctant hen, the Run Director forgets all about the pacers and we find out what incredible event our parkrun Event Ambassador Val went to today!

Screenshot 2019-10-05 at 14.37.33

 

Oops

3-2-1-GO! Barely have these words left my lips before the thought enters my head, "what did I forget to say?" There's always something I seem to miss and today it was the pacers! So let me correct that straight away and say thank you to all of our pacers right now:

Jim, Mark, Nigel, Charlie, Marc, Cheryl & Laura

 

Visitors & First Timers

We were blessed with visitors from all over parkrun World today. Aside from our good friends at RunPals, there were also runners from Yakky Trotters (complete with LOUD cheer squad), Leicestershire, Scotland, Widnes and Wellington, New Zealand. We also had two visitors from Queensland, Australia - from the same event - Kawana parkrun but strangely, neither Sarah, nor David knew the other was coming! There were a few bemused looks between the two for sure!

10 of you chose to start your parkrun journey today with your first ever event - and will now forever share your parkrun birthday with parkrun itself which turned 15 years old today! So, Mark, Kym, Rupert, Andrew, Ruth, Lisa, Kat, Hector, Helen and Carol - you're in esteemed company and welcome to the parkrun family! Kat was down with her hen party and seemed to be "encouraged" to take part! Let's hope today wasn't your last!

Volunteers

Thanks as ever to the volunteers who made the event possible today, not just on the day, but throughout the week. As autumn takes a hold, we are at the mercy sometimes of the elements, and on Tuesday, the Prom was covered in pebbles thrown over by the stormy weather. Enter Glen and David who dusted down the brooms and cleared the entire length of the course meaning we ran as normal today - thank you both!

Milestones

Checking the previous results, it seemed we had just the one milestone today - our Prom clearer extraordinaire David SPENCER who clocked up run number 100 today. Mingling amongst the finishers I spotted Jan PREST and congratulated him too on the achievement of 100 runs. "Really?" he replied! Hopefully this was a nice surprise for him! A big well done too to Emma WHITWORTH who completed her 50th parkrun with us today! Emma has run at a number of locations but most of her runs have taken place at GreenWay parkrun on the outskirts of Sydney, New South Wales.

 

The scores on the doors...

This week 404 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 51 were first timers and 57 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 41 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 33 volunteers.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Hove Promenade parkrun Results Page.

The male record is held by Robbie FITZGIBBON who recorded a time of 14:31 on 9th December 2017 (event number 120).
The female record is held by Maisie TRAFFORD who recorded a time of 17:13 on 7th September 2019 (event number 208).
The Age Grade course record is held by Sue GARNER who recorded 92.65% (24:02) on 9th September 2017 (event number 108).

Hove Promenade parkrun started on 11th July 2015. Since then 11,759 participants have completed 56,905 parkruns covering a total distance of 284,525 km, including 9,183 new Personal Bests. A total of 1,004 individuals have volunteered 6,258 times.

 And so we start the journey into parkrun's 16th year! Who could have thought that one man's idea, 13 runners and the promise of a post run coffee could lead to so much. And parkrun continues to grow and make such a difference. Just north of the Prom, at Downview Prison, the first female only UK prison parkrun was launched. Our Event Ambassador, Val Gates was one of the lucky ones to see the difference that parkrun is making to individuals and communities alike. Enjoy your parkrun birthday folks and as you check your results over a cup of tea, remember one small fact - we'll never be this small again!

‘Since Easter Saturday, I've been on a parkrun tour, that I fittingly named jamesparkruntour 2019, taking in 20 Stages in total, including Brighton, Hove, Clacton, Devon, Hertfordshire & London.Today was the penultimate stage, with the final stage in Kingston, London next weekend, although I'm looking forward returning to my home parkrun at Cassiobury Park Watford, I'm already excitingly planning the 2020 tour of 20 Stages fittingly’

Thanks for joining us James and we hope we make it on your 2020 tour as well.
