Event 339 – High tide, high numbers and high fives.

It was a frosty start this morning but that didn’t stop us beating the previous attendance record as 438 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 47 recorded new Personal Bests.

The parks team looked after us once again, spreading salt at an extra slippery spot. The resident swans kept a watchful eye on us too whilst high tides and strong winds had deposited generous amounts of debris along the promenade.

Regular volunteers Dave, Jo and Elaine did an excellent inspection and clearance job after I completely failed to locate the large green mass and our Run Director Bob Gear also did a fantastic job, getting everyone off on time and then our results out before lunch too. High fives to them and to all of our volunteers this week.

High fives too for Joshua Holland, Bradlee Mcintosh and Karen Berry, celebrating milestones today. Joshua was celebrating his 10th parkrun, having also run quite a few times at the Maldon prom junior event that takes place every Sunday. Bradlee has done a few of his 50 runs outside of Essex, whilst Karen has completed all of her 250 runs at Maldon Prom and is, I believe, the first person to have done this.

I hope that we will see you all again very soon.

After last week’s record breaking attendance we wondered if we would get near or indeed break it again this week. And whilst we didn’t break it, we did go over 400 for the third time! But thanks to the magnificent volunteer team the day went smoothly.

Thank you volunteers!

As I said before, we broke our attendance record, something that was mirrored up and down the country. More and more people are finding parkrun which is marvellous!

And we also had some milestones to celebrate; Emma Frankish and James Newman ran their 50th parkruns and Peter Banks ran his 100th. Well done!

Event #336-1st January and welcome 2020

This weeks run report is courtesy of tourist Sarah Orley

New Years Day, or bonus parkrun day as 393 of us decided it was at Maldon Prom, is an opportunity to get together with like minded people and have fun while running, walking or skipping and completing 5km in the lovely Essex outdoors.
It was a dynamic mix of people on the prom today, some dressed in newly acquired neon Lycra, perhaps new trainers, milestone T-shirt’s or their favourite comfy exercise clothes. I think I even spotted a few fancy dress items! hopefully not left over from the previous evenings shenanigans.
The diversity extended to the parkrun experience within the field. We had 9 brand new parkrunners gaining a time which they can use to challenge themselves next time if they wish, 3 runners who have each completed more than 400 parkrun’s, tourists from far afield and locals who run exclusively at Maldon Prom. Well done Steve Macdonald on completing 250 runs today.
Best of all by far were the volunteers who made it all possible, You we thank the most xx
Being New Years Day, parkrun HQ allow us to take part in 2 parkrun’s. The Essex teams work together to stagger start times so that this is possible. I headed off to South Woodham Ferrers which had a record attendance and others went off to Chelmsford which again attracted record numbers. I was particularly impressed with some of Maldon Proms brand new parkrunners who have already completed a second!
Can’t wait to see you all again soon.

This week 393 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 84 were first timers and 40 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 44 different clubs took part.

Event #335 – 28th December and it’s farewell to 2019

A mild but foggy morning at our beloved prom this morning for our last parkrun of 2019.
Lovely to see so many in attendance this morning and not a Santa hat in sight!!!!!!!

I was super happy to be running my 50th run this morning. Complete with a shiny big balloon friend and fellow parkrun runner Rebecca surprised me with this morning.
Elliott was also celebrating an unofficial 50th volunteering stint and Kaytie her 30th go at volunteering as fabulous timekeeper! (Thank you to the lovely Sue for the unofficial mention in the briefing too!) Another reason we love parkrun so much, it’s great for me to be able to take part and have my kiddos by my side and joining in with me in the whole parkrun scene.
As always, we came armed with wonderful cakes for our volunteers courtesy of my Kaytie.

Half Were red with 50 and half were black with 100 for her bestie Immy who was celebrating her amazing 100 parkrun milestone! Well done Imogen!

Other milestones included Isabella Wallace, Emma Roberts and Pat Rhodes.

As well as a few tourists from Devon, Bristol, Singapore, Grimsby and more!

I asked to write this weeks report as I will be signing off for a few weeks as my family prepare for my daughter Kaytie to undergo major spinal surgery. I can honestly say parkrun has changed our lives and we can’t wait to make our come back!!!!!! So it just leaves me to say well done to all that took part today.... we WILL see you all again soooooooooon!!!!
