Congratulations to everyone who got a milestone today including Lorraine Baker with her 250th parkrun and Cindy Gosling with her 50th parkrun. To Claire Emptage, Harry Frost, and Scott Girling, welcome to the 25 Club!

We’d also like to congratulate Gordon McAuley on our core team for completing parkrun bingo, and Bradlee McIntosh for turning up to run parkrun today on his wedding day!

It was a rather hot morning down at the prom today so I am sure we were all grateful for the mild breeze. I hope everyone kept cool and looked after themselves in the heat and I wish everybody a very cool, relaxing weekend. Take care when you’re out there on your runs! Thank you once again to the Maldon Promenade Zoo for providing water to the runners.

event #400 – 6 August 2022 – a somewhat arbitrary number

400 is not a parkrun milestone and there was some debate amongst the RDs on if/how we should recognise our 400th event.  In the end we settled on inviting everyone to wear their milestone t's and there was a great selection of milestone t’s on show.

20220806_093914(1)I decided to wear my V100 back to front so it was visible under my RD vest.  I'm looking forward to seeing a few V250's start to appear as I know that a few of our regular volunteers are getting close to joining that club now.  Congratulations to Julia Wortley and Andrew Wiffin for joining the v25 club.

A few more people joined running milestone clubs this week. Congratulations to Andrew, Ellen, Joanne, Louis, Philip and Tabitha on your 25th parkrun, to Angela for joining the 50 club, Elaine on joining the 100 club and Nicholas on your 250th parkrun.

Event#397 16 July 2022 – Feeling hot, hot hot

This week 230 people ran, jogged and walked our course around a rather toasty warm prom park.

15 first timers braved the heat and even more impressively and 23 recorded new Personal Bests. I mostly found shady places to lurk and be amazed by each and every one of you.

The event was made possible by 29 superheroes volunteers:

Sue M SMITH • Bob GEAR • Elaine VAUGHAN • John BUCHANAN • Alison HUGHES • David STOKES • Wayne HARGREAVES • Olivia SINDEN • Frederick BAKER • Jill MCKINNELL • Janet SIMS • Joy FRENCH • Michelle LAMARRE • Gabrielle BOLAND • Andrew WIFFIN • James SKILLERN • Alison FLIGHT • Hannah FLIGHT • George BOOTH • Colin FLIGHT • Joanne DENNIS • Elaine FERRIS • Eloise MCCLELLAN • Dean WHITTAKER • Emma ROBERTS • Teresa MITCHELL • Andrew MCGREGOR • Dave FERRIS • Clare MOYCE

We were lucky to have not just one BUT 3 offers to tailwalk today.  

Not all superheroes wear capes.....

tailwalkersDon’t they look great on route to their positions with a course marshal they found on the way!  

Janet had a technical glitch at the start but didn’t let it get her down.

jillWe were also very grateful to tourist Wayne Hargreaves who visited us for the first time AND offered to help us with our set up, getting to the park super early too.  I wanted to get a picture of Wayne by our pop up sign but as is usually the case, I got distracted talking and forgot.

and Gabi?  Gabi was just doing her thing in the shade

THANK YOU ALL!

I know that I KEEP banging on about letting us know if you can help in the next few weeks.  I make no apology.  It is so helpful to have a good looking roster at the start of the week.  PLEASE, PLEASE let us know if you can help out.  

Just before the runbrief today I was happy to be handed a (neatly written) note at the start, alerting me to some parkrunners celebrating milestones and a couple more shout outs from the crowd too.   I hope I've not missed anyone...

Clare Jennings, Nick Watt, Martin Sergeant, Sam Cox, James Wright, Craig Butterworth, Steven Birch and Tom Miller

 Well done to you all.

Until next time, it’s a goodbye from me and

Maldon Prom parkrun portable AED Appeal

 

DA838B64-53DF-41B4-A657-A645B5E8ED38

In 2016 we raised funds for an automatic external defibrillator (AED) which sits proudly on the toilet block at the Prom. It is a mandatory requirement for every parkrun in UK to have direct access to an AED, and last year at the Denmark V Finland match at the European Championships it was highlighted how vital quick intervention is.  The quicker an AED can be deployed in an emergency the greater the chance of survival.

The core team feel that purchasing our own portable AED will reduce the amount of time taken to access it in an emergency, which could prove crucial. 

Therefore we would like to fundraise again to purchase this vital piece of equipment.

The anticipated price is approximately £1,000 and we're appealing to our wonderful parkrun community to help us get there. There is absolutely no obligation on anybody to contribute to this but we know that a lot of you will want to. We did it before, and we are hopeful we can do it again. 

We are able to accept donations here https://www.parkrun.org.uk/maldonprom/aboutus/ via a paypal payment through our website and clicking on the button saying “Donate to parkrun” – this money goes directly to us.

If this has made you want to find out more about sudden cardiac arrest and defibrillators, here are some links.

Here's some information on defibrillators from the British Heart Foundation: https://www.bhf.org.uk/how-you-can-help/how-to-save-a-life/defibrillators

If you're interested in learning lifesaving skills the Resuscitation Council (UK) has produced an app and an online interactive video featuring a series of lifesaving scenarios to work through: https://www.resus.org.uk/apps/lifesaver/

Here is a video on How to Use a Defibrillator (AED) - First Aid Training - St John Ambulance

Thank you for your continued support.
