Virtual Event #56 – 1st May “May be warm next week !”

MLM 010521

This weeks opening pictures come from Michelle Lamarre who once again captured some spectacular shots of the sun rising over Heybridge on Saturday morning from the first of her two Virtual parkrun's. It was nice to see you and a few other familiar faces however fleetingly in the Prom just a little bit later on.

This Weeks PB's

It's hearty congratulations to Beryl Munro whose new PB of 46:06 was achieved on the day after her 80th Birthday :-) . Well done Beryl and Many Happy Returns too. You deserve some well earned Birthday Cake after that run !

There were also PB's for Patrick Hinchliffe in a time of 34:26 and Claire McAulay who power walked round with a time of 54:00.

Well Done All :-)

The Week in Pictures

We have one other picture to share this week from Gabrielle Boland.

"A beautiful start to my day, the rabbits were cheering but you were all missing, we will run together again. Thanks to the virtual results hot desk team, you all rock :-) "

This week's results table can be found below, along with all the various comments from your respective Virtual parkrun's.

With hopefully the imminent return of proper parkrun this may be my last stint at the "Virtual parkrun Hot Desk" (as Gabi refers to it), so before I go, I would just like to say Thank You, to all of you who have taken part in Virtual parkrun over the last year, and a bit, and to all who have shared their stories and pictures along the way.

Together you have kept the Maldon Prom parkrun spirit alive through what has been some truly extraordinary circumstances.

I'll handover to Bob now who will be back next week.

So until then Stay Safe and Well.

Joscelyn McInnes Not too upset with this time as I actually did the
parkrun route not just up or down Marsh road with the wind behind me
Kate Priest Thanks as always, parkrun team! Took it easy today as
have had a cold, had my 1st jab and also had a pint of beer before
Kevin Lagan Another enjoyable jog. Great to see so many fellow park
runners out and enjoying the Prom.
Lesley Hyland Lovely sunny day with solar powered Nell :-)
Lisa Burgess Thanks to Tracy for helping me get under 30mins. Really happy with this and a great start to
the bank holiday weekend :-)
Michelle Lamarre I prefer running before 9am but the company at 9am is way
Neal Beaumont Another breezy day, so a slow afternoon run round
Burnham's parkrun route.
Patrick Hinchliffe Colder than November, but the morning had a certain
apricity about it.
Philip Page Fuelled by the Adnams Brewery the night before......

are back running together I might get down to 24 minutes again
Tracy Page Great way to start the weekend :-)

Virtual Event #55 – 24th April 2021 “Finally Getting Warm”


I was unable to make it down the Prom this weekend, but from the Pictures sent in from Michelle, Siobhan and Lisa it looks like there was a good few runners out enjoying a socially distanced run, walk or jog it the park.

The weather was warm where I was and it looks like you all too enjoyed a nice day in Maldon and the surrounding area too. Hopefully that chilly wind of the last few weeks has gone for a while. :-)

This Weeks PB's

There was another PB for Neils Walter this week who shaved a further 17 seconds off his time from last week. Well done Niels, sub-20 must be a target now ;-) !

The Week in Pictures

Once again we have some fabulous picture contributions to share this week. Thank you all for each and every one of these.

Name Comment
6 weeks to go!! :-)
Barbara Hammond Slow one today nursing a sore rib. Lovely morning though
and heard first cuckoo of the season
Beryl Munro Thank you Team for your dedication on compiling our

ready for 5 June.
Craig Burgess Recovering from a cold, lovely run in the sun!
Fiona Griffiths Part of walking a marathon this weekend. Beautiful
Gabrielle Boland What a glorious day, thanks so much to this weeks

the weather than processing the results. You're all stars :-)
Gary Poole Lovely morning down the Prom - almost warm enough for
short sleeves. But not quite...
Gordon McAulay On Holiday this Saturday so this time was my Thursday
Soul Runners run down to Beeliegh Falls and back.
Joscelyn McInnes not a bad time after a 4 mile run along the sea wall to
hollywell point as a warm up!!
Julie Bennett Lovely run across Beeleigh Falls to make a change
Kate Priest Thanks parkrun team!
Kevin Lagan Slower than last week but absolutely lovely round the
Lisa Burgess Lovely run in the sun.
Trying to get under 30 mins, maybe I'll do this next week :-)
Michelle Lamarre Lots of parkrunning today :-)
Neal Beaumont Twas a bright, sunny
Saturday morning, with a fresh northeasterly wind blowing. So Joscelyn and I
jogged slowly out of Burnham, along the seawall to Holliwell point, admiring
the fleet of 16 Optimists, who were really going for it out on the water:
some impressive yound sailors out there. We then headed up the track to Marsh
Road to start our parkruns back to Burnham. Thanks, as always, to the Maldon
Niels Walter Another great run from Niels' this week , he's so looking
forward to doing a live park run and meeting you all ( Siobhan )
Philip Page All worth it for the chat with friends, coffee and
Siobhan Humm A wonderful run this morning, thanks all for keeping us
going not long now hopefully
Stacy Hember Lovely day. Tried to run the route but it got really busy
so had to finish the run outside of the park.
Steve Carter Used my Weds run as couldn't get out today. Enjoyed this.
Tracy Page Did it for the teacake
Victoria Poole Another lovely sunny morning, thank you parkrun team
Yvonne McAulay Thanks team

Virtual event #54 17th April 2021

Another fabulous week for running, walking and timing a 5K.

The park is looking lovely and the weather too. Congratulations to Niels Walter (picture below, crossing the virtual line as virtual first finisher this week) and to Patrick Hinchcliffe for their PB's this week and to all of the 41 finishers.




Quite a few of you chose to run the parkrun course and to wear milestone T's. To me at least it felt almost as good as an actual parkrun and I continue to remain cautiously optimistic that we will be back in 7 weeks.

The Event Directors and the core team volunteers have been looking at an alternate route to avoid the potential congestion on the first lap and hope that this and new measures set out in the parkrun framework will help everyone feel it is safe for us to return.

Thank you for sending some pictures in. I managed to capture one of the resident swans and a few runners too.



Stay safe everyone.
