Littlehampton Prom parkrun is cancelled on 11 April 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Littlehampton Prom parkrun Event number 47 14th March 2020

On a day where so many sporting events were cancelled in the UK, it was great that the weather decided that we would have a relatively warm and calm dry day to run at the Prom.

For me having the run today was a continuation of my journey from running at 19 stone for the first time in 30 years on 13th July 2019. Back then the prospect of running for me was never going to happen. But the constant “nagging” of my Park Run neighbours George Jones and Nick Bacon, persuaded me to come down and “run”. Since then the friends I have made through Park Run and the way I have been accepted (under various names!!) shows that for me the Park Run Community , especially at Littlehampton Prom, is second to none. Yesterday was my 32nd run and coming down every Saturday and meeting up with my Park Run family is the highlight of every week for me. Having lost over 3 stone with the help of Park Run is another added bonus

As always, everyone is made so welcome and the 146 runners of all abilities showed again what Park Run has to offer. Fun, exercise, friendship, community spirit, to name but a few

Thanks all

Jezza/Paul/ whatever you want to call me this week!

The One That Wont Happen Again Till 2048 – #45

Well that was touch and go on Saturday, another scare with the weather reports - the old will we, wont we debate again!  We did ............ obvs or we wouldn't be writing this!!

We were determined to go ahead if it was safe to do so, on such a momentous occasion.  The first Saturday in a Leap Year since parkrun began, and then not for a long time again.

The weather turned out not too bad, the forecasted storm, ended up being nothing more that a storm in a teacup!!  As soon as you all finished and went on your merry way, the sun came out, and was a lovely morning!

We had a milestone this week. we had 5 year old Flynn who celebrated his 10th parkrun.

We had tourists from Horsham Joggers come over to join us, and a chap from Nottingham.

Was great to see so many of you joining us this week, 102 in all, 21 first timers, so well done for braving the elements.  We had 8 PBs too, so not bad.

After concern about whether the prom would be cleared of stones and if the winds would cause any further problems, it was good to see so many runners setting off on their regular Saturday morning 5k run. The strong winds made it challenging with just 3PBs. Well done to Andrew Dennis, Michael Fisher and Mabel Cresswell.

There were tourists from Deal, Runnymede, Gosport, Rayleigh, and Wimbledon.

This week 123 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 31 were first timers. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

Littlehampton Prom parkrun Event number 43 8th February 2020

As we sat in wait for Storm Ciara, the weather Gods were kind to us this morning. The rain had stopped and a gentle wind made for near perfect running conditions for my first time as Run Director.

I was fortunate enough to have an amazing group of volunteers who are always very supportive and this made the whole event seem like a well managed machine.

We welcomed tourists from Portsmouth, Southampton, Milton Keynes and Hove Park and I hope they enjoyed running along the prom with us today.

As 9:00 drew closer, the prom began to fill up with you lovely bunch of runners and it was great to see the enthusiasm and friendly atmosphere in the build up to the run.
