Name Comment
Lovely early morning run,weather was good too!
Amanda hudson So great seeing so many park runners out this morning.Thanks for spurring us on
Andy Byrom Nice to run the usual normal Maldon parkrun course this morning with my eldest daughter and her other half. Lots of other like minded people doing the same and wishing
each other a good morning! Proud to be a member of such a great bunch
Clare Moyce I actually done my first 4mile run today in virtual parkrun, and I really enjoyed it too! :-)
Craig Burgess A walk with Phil to Papermill this morning to meet the girls!
Drew Symons Getting better
Elaine Vaughan Lovely walk at the beautiful Prom. Fabulous to see so many parkrunners out.
Fiona Griffiths The joys of half term.... Back under 30
Gabrielle Boland A beautiful sunrise and a very smug feeling today's virtual parkrun is done for me. A big thank you to the team on the results hot desk,you all do a wonderful job for
all of us :-)
Gordon McAulay Flu Round
Ian Lucas Nice run to try out the new trainers
John Buchanan Thanks again to the organisers for getting me out of the doldrums and into my trainers this morning! No excuses for my slow run other
than I am carrying some extra weight just now!
Julia Bawden Great to see so many out running in the Prom this morning.Thanks Maldon PR team :)
Julie Bennett And she ran right up to the top of the hill...and she ran back down again...and realised it was more like 7km than 5km!
Kate Priest Thanks again, parkrun team! After a 4am start today to drive to the Lake District, today's parkrun wasn't speedy, but was a very pretty and scenic walk, full of
interesting animals!!! (see photos!)
Kirsty Davies We took a new route today now that everything is getting muddy. We still ended up at the horses for a final photo before Jonty leaves his Mum and heads to live with
another foal for the winter. It's going to be odd to find something else to have a photo with after a run.
Lee Brace Drowned rat midweek
Lisa Burgess Not quite a PB but Sub 30 so I'm really happy with this :-)
Lisa Campbell Nice run round the prom. Nice to see familiar faces
Michelle Lamarre so happy being lapped by so many parkrunners today.
Neal BEAUMONT Yuk: a terrible time! My worst, by far, for over a year (and back then, I'd just come out of Addenbrooke's Hospital). My only excuse today: a very breezy day in
Burnham. Oh well ..... here's to being quicker next week! Thanks to our Maldon Parkrun friends.
Nicola Martin Happy with todays run.
Paul Dobson Great conditions this morning!
Philip Page Walking again as I'm visiting Injuryville again!
Siobhan Humm Absolutely awesome to see fellow park runners on our run this morning,including the wonderful vcore team ,well done all .thanks so much for all you
do every week . Hopefully Claire will put her time in this week and make it her first official parkrun x
Steve Carter Good to get out, didn't push it, struggling to feel it atm.
Sue M Smith Haven't run the full course in ages, I've missed it!
Tracy Page Blew away the cobwebs!
Victoria Symo s Ouch. Still needs some work!

Virtual parkrun 27

event 27







Thanks to Michelle for her collage of photos from her run at The Prom yesterday.

38 of you submitted results for the 27th edition of our virtual parkrun, well done all of you for getting out there!

Hope to 'see' some more of you next week!

Here are your results and comments.

1 Neal BEAUMONT 00:23:15 Another lunch time jog round Burnham parkrun route. A fresh westerly made it a
bit of a slog along the quay towards the marina (again), and a few spots of rain
added to the invigorating feel. Well done to Joscelyn, who was showing great
sprinting form from just by the skate board park to the finish (shoulders back,
head up, nice straight back, good powerful arms, great knee lift, and no over-
striding: excellent!). Thanks, thanks, and more thanks, to our Maldon Parkrun
2 Bob Priest 00:24:04
3 Geoffrey REDDIN 00:24:44
4 Philip Page 00:24:53 That was hard work!
5 Dave Ferris 00:25:17
6 Tim Huxtable 00:25:38 Solid Run well done to all those who went out today keep it going and hopefully
it won't be too long until we all back together on Saturday mornings
7 Kate priest 00:26:29 An agonising, excruciating, frustrating ONE SECOND off my PB from 6 years
go!!!! Feeling good though! Thanks as always parkrun team x
8 Stacy Hember 00:26:47
9 Kevin Lagan 00:27:31 Ran with an injury. Big mistake
10 Lisa Burgess 00:28:08 PB! A PB for me today ..... knocking 1min 13seconds off my old one. Can't
believe This!! :-)
11 Jan Hutchinson 00:28:25 Bright but chilly one today.
12 Kimberley Harding 00:28:54 good to be back out on a Saturday morning again!
13 Craig Burgess 00:28:57 On the treadmill in the gym!
14 Kerry Harding 00:29:07
15 Jacki MUNDY 00:29:39

33 Alison HUGHES 00:38:56 My best time so far on this route, knocked over 3 minutes off from the last time
I ran this route! Chuffed!
34 Colin Matthews 00:51:19
35 Jane Matthews 00:51:19
36 James Skillern 00:53:27 Meeting friends and followed by chocolate and cake, what better
37 Elaine Vaughan 00:59:52 Chilly, but picturesque walk at the Prom with great parkfaffing afterwards!
38 Michelle Lamarre 00:59:53 It was so fresh today that a post run heated scone was required. As lovely as
always to be out on a Saturday with likeminded people though.


Virtual Event #26 – 3rd October 2020 “Wet, Wet, Wet @ The Prom”

We would all be "Living in a World of Make Believe" and "Wishing we were Lucky" if we thought Marti Pellow and the gang were at the Prom this Saturday.

Unfortunately the only Wet, Wet, Wet Scotsman to be found was myself along with a few other hearty souls who braved the weather which can best be described as Dreich !

In the end a total of 23 Virtual parkrunners registered a Run, Walk or Jog which I think was partly down to the Weather and also because there is another significant Virtual Event in the Calendar for this weekend.

Good Luck to all taking part in the Virtual London Marathon.

This Weeks PB's
Unsurprisingly no one managed to register a PB this week but despite the rain Kate Priest came close with a time only 14 seconds off her all time PB set 6 years ago.

That's a PB time that's going to fall sooner or later when better weather prevails.

We Love a Photo :-)
Pictures contributions this week come from Gabi, Michelle and Kate whose Secret to Success is either her new Mystical Levitate Running Shoes or..... Beer !

I'll let you all decide on that one !


"I have attached my levitating photos !!  New shoes"

"I have attached my levitating photos !! New shoes"

 "With a beer of the same name to match !"

"With a beer of the same name to match !"

"PB - Coming Soon !"

Virtual Event #26 - Results
This week's results table can be found below, along with all the various comments from your respective Virtual parkruns.

This marks the end of my two week stint and hopefully the end to the recent run of atrocious weather that seems to have followed me around.

Bob's back next weekend with hopefully a bit of sun in tow.

Rest assured I'll be back in a couple of months, just in time for Blizzard Season !

Stay Safe and Well

What a wet one today!
Barbara Hammond Wet one this morning
Elaine Vaughan A very soggy but chatty walk around the Prom with friends. Last one for Emma before she heads back to university.
Fiona Griffiths The weather wasn't as bad as I feared it would be. Although, if it wasn't for parkrun, I wouldn't have bothered. Thank you organisers!
Gabrielle Boland A soggy morning, but it's always sunny in my heart at Maldon Prom parkrun, virtual or in the flesh. Thanks for keeping us connected :-)
Geoffrey Reddin Wet (very)
Gordon McAulay Wet under foot !
Ian Lucas That was damp!
Jacki Mundy Soggy one but glad I went
Jeremy Mundy Bit wet
Julia Bawden Very quiet in Prom Park today - lots of puddles though!
Kate Priest This run was for Tracker and my mum.
Lisa Burgess Came home looking like a drowned rat but happy with this, maybe another sub 30 is on the cards!!
Michelle Lamarre Happy 16th anniversary to parkrun! On days like today I would not venture out to the park if it were not for parkrun spirit. Thank you Gordon for your weather magic. Now kindly move along please.
Neal Beaumont A lovely mid-morning jog round the Burnham course. A very slight, refreshing shower, with a light southerly breeze: perfect! Thanks to the Maldon team.
Nicola Salisbury Nice wet and rainy jog
Patrick Hinchliffe 3rd fastest 5k
