Run Report #170 8th February 2020 – It’s good to be back (again!)

Well done to all 105 runners and 18 volunteers who braved Woodside parkrun this morning!

With the impending arrival of Stom Ciara we were pleased to have sunshine and a warmer start than usual in anticipation of the highest winds for the last 7 years expected later today.

We were glad to welcome all our new runners and tourists today from Cardiff, Moors Valley, Oxford, Southampton and, of course, Lymington!

And to the results..

Run Report#168 11th January 2020

Well done! to all 131 runners who braved the wet at times, and in places, slippery / muddy conditions. A special thank you to the volunteers for turning out and enthusiastically cheering and encouraging the runners on such a grey day. So many smiles and happy faces despite everything. Thank you to Liz for co-ordinating them.

First person home today was Alastair Pickburn (19:30); the first female was Chloe Woolf (21:03) and the first junior was Matthew Vickery (20:05). Tracey Phillips (78:09%) was the highest age graded person. There were also 8 personal bests. Great stuff!

Welcome to the tourists, who came from as far afield as Wincanton, and to the 22 First Timers, we hope to see you all again soon.

Not good conditions for standing and chatting to people post run. However, it was lovely to overhear a long standing volunteer, Bette, talking about the Mary Rose with Brenda Bumstead, who was one of the people new to Lymington Parkrun. Bette remembered being able to watch it being raised on the television, whilst Brenda was one of the divers involved in ensuring it was raised intact. Fascinating.

RUN REPORT 167 – 4th January 2019

After two Saturday cancellations because of a waterlogged and unsafe course, it was good to be able to hold our first parkrun of 2020. 128 runners and walkers found the going soft in places but welcomed the newly cleared paths around the ornamental park. Thank you to the groundsman and his staff for doing a great job.

Peter Doughty was first home once again in a time of 18.50, with Phil Brown second, 31 seconds later and Richard Penn third in 19.25. Junior Matthew Vickery maintained his impressive form by finishing in fourth place, just a second outside the 20 minute barrier, a great achievement in the conditions. It was good to see Val Sesto back at Woodside and first female to finish in a time of 20.33. Lou Frost recorded yet another PB, breaking the 23 minute barrier for the first time, and there were 9 other PBs this week.

Among the 22 first-time visitors to Woodside, we saw a fair number of participants completing their first parkrun as part of a New Year resolution to get fitter, and we were delighted to welcome them and encourage their efforts.

After a two week lay-off, the volunteer roster was looking rather empty, and the usual seasonal bugs also took their toll, but, as usual, everyone rallied round and responded to our volunteer coordinator’s appeal to enable us to stage the event. A big thank you to Liz Sanders for assembling the following loyal stalwarts:
Hannah STORM • Lisa MCGINNIS • Douglas WOOD • Darren PRICE • Tony MILES • Nigel SMITH • Peter HARWOOD • Azara STORM CHITTOCK • Nigel MUSSETT • Bette KEEPING • Melanie SNOOK • Liz SANDERS • Leslie LOADER • Jackie EGGLETON • Rafferty STORM-SMITH • Les MCCULLEY • Frances MOORE

Run Report # 166 -25th December 2019

What an amazing way to start Christmas with 216 runners and 18 volunteers with so many friends and relatives as well. Some amazing fancy dress and in spite of the wet and frosty conditions we still had 14 new Personal Bests.

In amongst those 14 Personal Bests was a very special one; our long suffering LIZ SANDERS who has stepped up to the mark so many times as Volunteer Coordinator - a total of 26 times(!) and who ran a very respectable 35 minutes 10 seconds - maybe she can hit under 30 minutes in 2020? Congratulations!

The spirit was amazing this morning and reminded me of all that is so good about parkun and it's contribution to community health and wellbeing.
