Happy 3rd Birthday: parkrun #157 – - Lanhydrock – - 21-01-2017

Huge thanks to James White of Winchester parkrun for writing this week's excellent run report below.  We hope you'll be back for another visit again soon James.

Thank you as always to everyone who makes this brilliant, and increasingly popular, event take happen.  All the volunteers did a stellar job (especially the bakers)- thank you!  & several visitors to Lanhydrock were able to go home with a 'parkrun apricot' balloon at the end of the day.  See you all again soon - Alice, parkrun Run Director for 21-01-2017

 

Lanhydrock parkrun

Happy Birthday Lanhydrock parkrun! It was lovely to visit you on such a special occasion and meet the wonderful team of volunteers that make it all possible. In the past three years you have put on 157 parkruns and have seen a total of 21,294 finishers.  That is 106,470km run or 2 and two thirds times around the world! Simply phenomenal!

Today's birthday was celebrated by runners being encouraged to wear funny hats. As it was freezing most of the runners were wearing some form of headwear anyway but the most amusing for me was tail runner Eldred who was wearing a pink animal hat donated by one of his grandchildren (who thought it was hilarious!).

The first timers briefing was given by run director Alice and it was great to see so many first timers and tourists there. parkrun is really expanding and we are so fortunate to have do many available to us, and the partnership with the National Trust means there are some stunning venues, like Lanhydrock, to run at.

The run briefing and prize ceremony were also expertly delivered by Alice, who struggled to make herself heard over the cacophony of dogs who were clearly excited to get running!! It wasn't long before we were lined up and the 3,2,1 was given and we were off!!

Before running Lanhydrock I consulted friends who had run the course and the parkrun discussion forum and parkrun Tourist groups on Facebook to get advice as to what to expect. The key words were "hilly", "beautiful", "scenic" and "brutal" and it is hard to disagree with any of those!

Running down the initial hill it is hard not to stop and admire the beautiful house that sits in the grounds we were running in, but it wasn't long before the work started. The little hill that leads up into the woods from the house is just a taster of what is to come later.  On cresting the hill I found myself running downhill for what seemed like an eternity. Twisting through beautiful woodland, with snatches of views down into the valley. Running trails alongside fields before plunging downwards once more.

Eventually we reached the only flat section, which was alongside the idyllic River Fowey. I stopped to take some pictures but also to get my breath back before the push up the hill towards the finish.

As the road turned upwards I settled in to a steady pace, knowing that we had come down so far meant I was prepared for how far we had to go back up. Turning off of the road and into the fields I could almost see the finish, but the push up the final stretch of hill was too much and I, like so many others, resorted to walking it. We were soon back on a road up towards where we started and I got my legs going for one last push.

The stretch down the hill and into the finish was super quick and I crossed the line knackered but entirely satisfied! What a course and what a lovely group of people to run it with. Everyone was so supportive all the way round and it was amazing to see the number of kids flying round the course...definitely runners to look out for in future.

No birthday party is complete without cake and this was no exception. Loads to chose from at the finish...and I went for a lovely cherry cake.  Thank you to who ever made it! I headed up to the cafe and had a great cuppa and a bacon bap. I also had a long chat to fellow tourist Yvette, down from Taunton for the day. We unanimously agreed that it was a beautiful but tough course.

I am fortunate enough to have run 120 parkruns but I will long remember today as one of my favourites.  Thank you Lanhydrock you were EPIC!

parkrun #143 – - Lanhydrock – - 15 October 2016

The mist lifted and the cattle were shooed from the start straight in time for the 9am parkrun 'Go'.

 

191 (plus 17 volunteers) enjoyed the autumnal National Trust Lanhydrock estate at this week's parkrun.  With a covering of golden brown leaves, the course could have been slippery, but with the rain holding off until late morning, the going was pretty good and 41 parkrunners were rewarded with PBs.

 

This week's thank yous for being amazing and making it all happen go to:

#136 – - Lanhydrock parkrun – - 27 August 2016

I Am Team GB

The 27 August was the day to celebrate the success of Team GB at the Rio Olympics and also the achievements of parkrunners everywhere.  A few took on the Olympic-themed fancy dress challenge, with swimmers, cyclists and cross country riders marshaling the 5k route.  275 ran, walked and jogged their way to the finish line., including parkrunners from clubs far and wide.

Most of us will never be fast runners, will run ultra marathons, or take home trophies, but we are all winners at parkrun.  Every Saturday we celebrate the love of running, being outdoors, achieving our personal goals and meeting the bestest people we could ever hope to know.

Happy parkrunning everyone

 

The super fantastic volunteer team: Alice BARKER, Tom COLLINS, Carolyn GARLAND, Keith HILL, Paul JAMIESON, Mike KESTLE, Tim MCEVOY, Mary MULLARKEY, Stefan PALMER, Nicola RICHARDS, Steve RIVERS, Jenny SAUNTER, Nick SAVIN, Jo SHAW, Lesley TAPHOUSE, Nicola VOSPER

 

parkrun # 133 – - Lanhydrock – - 6 August 2016

Very nearly a record turnout, and over 5000 different runners have now completed the challenge that is Lanhydrock parkrun.  WELL DONE every single one of you, and thank you for making it the magnificent event it is.

 

Huge thanks to this week's volunteers.  None of it would happen without you.

 

Alan HULME  •  Alice BARKER  •  Alison COX  •  Ashton ROBINS  •  Clive COX  •  Darrell FULLER  •  Eldred HICKS  •  Hilary EASTLEY  •  Jeni ENDEAN  •  John LILLIS  •  Mary MULLARKEY  •  Mike SAUNDERS  •  Nicola RICHARDS  •  Pam SOLOMON  •  Rebekah FRANCE  •  Sally BOWDEN  •  Steve RIVERS  •  Tim MCEVOY

 

Conditions were dry and sunny once the mist had cleared this morning, so great for running, as proven by the brilliant turnout.  Several runners did miss the 9am start, which meant some also took a bit of a wrong turn as the marshals had moved from position once the tail runner had passed - maybe an earlier alarm call next time?!  Lots of praise for our parkrun though, with plenty of parkrun tourists visiting us for their holiday parkrun fix.  We hope you'll all be back again soon.  Thanks all - Alice, parkrun RD for 06-08-2016

I'm always impressed by the wave of people that surge forward for the new to Lanhydrock parkrun runners briefing every week - 43 this week! 11 of these were recording their first ever parkruns - what a course for that achievement. 4230 different runners have recorded times at Lanhydrock parkrun since we started in January 2014. Truly amazing.

The unimpressive soggy weather made conditions a bit more slippery than expected after the springtime lovliness we've had this week, but that didn't deter the runners or the fantastic plethora of volunteers. Special thanks to David Nancarrow for stepping in to tailrun at short notice. Kudos also goes to Matt Harrison and Louise Papworth, who chose Lanhydrock today for their 50th parkruns. Great achievement both!

Massive thank you to all the volunteers as always. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer at Lanhydrock parkrun, so please do. You don't have to be a runner to volunteer. A warm, fuzzy feeling from having done something good for others is guaranteed (although waterproofs, hats and gloves may be required at times). http://www.parkrun.org.uk/lanhydrock/futureroster/ We hope you'll give it a go as we're sure you'll love being a part of the team.

Have a great weekend & see you all again for another parkrunday soon.
Alice & the parkrun team.

parkrun #108 – - Lanhydrock – - 13 February 2016

Feeling the parkrun Valentines love

 

The park is very much wet, but parkrun does go on. Well done everyone who made it to the start line to brave the mud - you're all winners.  Massive thank you to the volunteers for making the event happen and for braving cold hands.  You are the superstars of parkrun.

 

With Lanhydrock Gardens re-opening today and the House opening from the 1 March, we will be sharing the park with more people again, and there will be more traffic around as National Trust staff and volunteers access the site.  So, please be careful and we'll try to keep the road down to the house as clear as possible for vehicles to get through.

 

Our little parkrun event goes from strength to strength, and we'll soon have had over 4,000 runners having run our challenging 5k. Well done and thank you to everyone who makes it happen. You're all brilliant!.

 

See you all again next week.

 

PS.  Apologies, this was supposed to go out last Saturday but the system crashed and I forgot to reload -- oops!  Which reminds me... #DFYB Don't Forget Your Barcode :)
