Land’s End parkrun #16 07/03/2020

Course record smashed today!!  Our previous record was 17.48 but Pete le Grice took over two minutes off that time by finishing in 15.37!  The second runner was just coming onto the loop when Pete had completed nearly two laps.  He then set his sights on catching and overtaking any runners before he went into the finish which he successfully did of all bar the second place!

P3079897

We had some early birds from Bromley turn up as they took the only bus from Penzance which would get them to parkrun on time - the 6.30am arriving at 7.30am!  They then had a walk to Porthcurno in order to get the bus back to Penzance and then the train to St Austell as they were staying at the YHA at Eden.

Mother and son, Sandra and Sam Treleven, have been planning this event for a while as they both wanted to complete their 100th parkrun together.  Well done to both of them! Mike Kestle from Newquay kept very quiet the fact that this was his 200th parkrun but his friends let the cat out of the bag!

Today was also International Women's Day and Active Cornwall donated 100 pedometers and some t-shirts, which were all handed out to the runners whether male or female as they all took part.

A big thank you to the 16 volunteers who stood out in the icy cold conditions today.  At least the hailstones held off until we were packing away but there were some cold hands giving out tokens, timekeeping and scanning!

Well done to the 65 runners who were wind-assisted around the course today.  Sometimes a tail wind, other times resistance training!

Our tourist tail walker, Kieran Hughes, was taking part in his 100th different parkrun and 100th parkrun - that's some organising to find somewhere to go every week!

International Women’s Day – 7 March 2020

#IWDparkrun

Research across the world shows that women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun. In an effort to encourage more women and girls to participate, we are planning this female-focused parkrun which also supports the This Girl Can campaign.
What we’d really like, is for you to ask your female friends and family if they would like to take part in this special event, whether volunteering or running – perhaps you could help facilitate this for them by helping out with childcare that week or unburdening them from other ties that may prevent them from attending. Maybe offer a little encouragement and let them know that parkrun is for running, jogging or walking – it’s not a race, it’s fun!

Ideally we would like everyone to wear purple on that day.

The prize for commitment to parkrun goes to Vince and Claire Deritis who caught the sleeper train from London to Penzance, jumped in a taxi and took part in today's parkrun at Land's End!!!  They then walked to Sennen Cove, caught the bus back to the train station and went home again!  WOW!!

 

Our course record was broken yet again.  This time by Sam Swift in a time of 17.48.

We worked with the organisers of the Arc of Attrition 50 mile race from the Minack Theatre to ensure that both events could take place safely even though their race ran the opposite way along part of our parkrun course.  It was great to see the ultra runners cheering on the parkrunners and vice a versa!
