Happy New Year!

Dear Malling parkrun family!

With it being the last day of 2020 we thought we’d get in touch to wish you, your friends and family the very healthiest and happiest 2021 possible!

It goes without saying 2020 won’t go down in history as one of the better years although as ever, from great adversity... can come great things and despite the bad we discovered a new sense of community and appreciation for the simple things.

With luck and a following wind, we could be back park running, jogging and walking in just a few months. In the meantime there’s (not)parkrun where Kent is leading the way in national results table and the new 8 week #parkrunresolution initiative (starting Jan 4th) which aims to help us all make positive improvements to our health and well-being.
To finish off, some personal thoughts from the core team:

ED Tracy:

“Well, I'd never thought I'd go 9 months without rocking up at a parkrun somewhere. I'm sure many of you have thought the same.

Not living locally to the lakes, as a family we have been running around Medway which has meant not seeing you, our parkrun community, out on your runs.

It felt very strange to start with not having to get up early on a Saturday but has now become the norm. Not sure how we'll cope when we start back again!!!!

We will be back one day and when it does I can't wait to reconnect with my "parkrun family".

I hope you are all keeping yourselves fit and healthy and I hope to see you soon.”

 

ED Darran:

“I still recall my last parkrun back in March where I met up with other Kent region ambassadors at Canterbury. It was a typically cold and wet run and after we huddled in the University coffee shop with a sense of foreboding about the inevitable lockdown, which of course came soon after.

It’s all been a bit of a blur since then with great ups (second grandson born under lockdown) and great downs - loosing my dad to COVID just before Christmas.

While under the “rule of six” I created a facebook group to encourage local runners to organise ad-hoc micro events. Sadly going into Tier 4 pulled the rug out from under it, although I would still urge anyone feeling lonely or just in need of a fresh pair of ears to reach out.

I’ve bumped into a few familiar faces over the last 9 months and each time it’s like meeting a long-lost friend even if the only connection was just that hour on a Saturday morning! That’s the magic of parkrun I guess and also what I miss the most."

 

RD Will:

"Probably like many of you I've kept up the running, finding new routes and running with one other friend as permitted with the Covid rules.

I've missed much more than the running, I've missed the joy of volunteering, the buzz of scanning and saying "well done" to each person.

It looks like with the vaccine on the horizon that better days will come and I'm really looking forwards to seeing everyone again. I have now found a route around Hollingbourne that is exactly 5k, and if I give myself the briefing before I set off then I can at least pretend that I've done a parkrun whilst logging it as "not a parkrun".

See you in 2021."

 

From everyone at Malling parkrun, we hope you have the best New Year celebration you can!

 

Coronavirus Cancellations

As we're sure everyone will be aware of by now, all parkrun UK events are cancelled for at least the next two weeks.

Beyond that, Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council have cancelled all organised events within their parks until further notice, which will sadly include us too.

As you'll also see, hear and read on parkrun social feeds, we're actively discouraging people from running around the Country Park (or any other parkrun location) at 9am on Saturdays while we are closed. To do so goes against all current advice to avoid social groups and risks both prolonging the shutdown and bringing the parkrun name into disrepute. Please do not do this.

In the meantime try to safe and healthy while keeping an eye out for each other.

Just like at the end of old James Bond films.... Malling parkrun will return!

 

 

Event #217 – Ciara calling!

Saturday was quite literally the calm-before-the-storm and an amazing 375 people came down to Leybourne Lakes Country Park to enjoy a spot of splashy parkrun fun before storm Ciara hit. Not so lucky for many junior parkrun events on Sunday that had no choice but to cancel faced with storm force winds.

An amazing 63 of you got a PB and we had 22 people attending for the first time! Well done to Andrew Theedom and Ali Farrall who were our first male and female finishers and we hope whatever time you achieved, it was somewhere near to what you were hoping for :)

We've lots of brilliant photos this week (thanks to Paul Taylor) on our google album but here's a small taster...

Here's some parkrun magic: two people who'd never met before Saturday..

Gill Rogers - My 50th parkrun

Two years ago I didn’t run at all and had no intention of running despite my husband Geoff and other family members trying to persuade me to, that was until I saw that Malling parkrun were going to start a ‘parkwalk to parkrun’ course of 12 weeks starting on 28 April 2018.

image0

I was nearly put off the whole idea as I saw my doctor about a week before the course started and mentioned that I was going to start running to improve fitness and the doctor responded saying “you shouldn’t even think of starting to run at your age” I was flabbergasted, but decided to give it a go anyway.

Darran was leading the course and he explained that for the first week we would alternate running and walking around the 5K course and each week we would gradually increase the amount we ran and reduce the amount we walked with the aim of running the whole 5K by week 12.

On 14th July I successfully ran the whole 5K and the feeling of achievement was fantastic, I was hooked!

Since then I’ve tried to get to parkrun most weeks and about a year ago I decided to join Larkfield AC running club - they provide great support for beginners and it means I now get two runs per week with great company. Last October I even ran the Larkfield 10K.

It seems unbelievable that I’ve just clocked up 50 parkruns - I’m proud of what I’ve achieved, but I wouldn’t have even got started running if it hadn’t been for parkrun.

Very well done Gill.. and also Roger for supporting her and PJ for taking Gill on through an intermediate running course (and for being a brilliant volunteer at Manor Park junior parkrun!)

JEM_1478

Also, congratulations to a gaggle of juniors on reaching their 10th runs - Evan Brown, Tawana Chikopa and Lauren Tree.

NOT FORGETTING... Jilly Drayton (the smiley volunteer just before the turn for start/finish) and Silver DofE Josie Rathbone both achieving their 25th week of volunteering.

Sad goodbyes to Paige Harper on completing her 13 week bronze DofE award.

Last, but not least, thank you to all our amazing volunteers!

A quick reminder...
Could we please remind everyone that having finished, they try to keep the path clear for other finishers? We appreciate there are a lot of you and there is limited space but if we could encourage you to keep to one side this will reduce the risk of collision! We also need to leave enough room for other park users :)

March 7th – #IWDparkrun

International Women's Day occurs on Sunday 8th March 2020, so to celebrate this we are following parkrun UK and organising a global female-focused parkrun celebration on Saturday 7 March 2020, the day before International Women’s Day.

AAAAAAA

International Women's Day parkrun #IWD

In the UK, #IWDparkrun will be supported by This Girl Can, a campaign created by our partner Sport England.

Research tells us that women are sometimes less likely to participate in parkrun, and so we hope special events like this will help encourage everyone to take part.

Kent Sport will be joining us to hand out free "This Girl Can" T-shirts!

So go and grab that reluctant friend or family member and suggest they give it a try! Here's a handy blog post from parkrun UK that will walk them through everything they need to know about how to parkrun :-)

 

Event #214 – Another busy one

With the second week of Tonbridge parkrun being cancelled due to a waterlogged course, we weren't quite as busy as the previous week (a new record at over 500) but at 460 it still meant all the volunteers were very busy. The wet and windy weather moved away leaving Saturday to be a bright and chilly morning - perfect for running if a little moist under foot.

Lots of great photos this week (thank you Paul Taylor!) starting with mid-pack at the start...

..and then watching as you all headed towards the meadow for the first time...

..this time running past the meadow itself..

..and just out the other side heading towards Diver's corner. Aptly named because - guess what?

JEM_0879

..and finally, here's a random view from the finish funnel..

JEM_0984

Worth noting that this week we had 76 people visiting us for the first time, of which 31 were doing their first ever parkrun. An incredible 71 of you got a PB. So very well done if that was you!

Lastly, a big shout out to DofE volunteers Liam and Jacob who completed their 13 week stint with us. We wish you well and hope you come back and see us in the future.

..and finally - Can you help?
We're looking for one or two super enthusiastic people to become co-event directors at our 'lil sister event. There are no set requirements in terms of experience or background, so if you fancy a new challenge for the new year this could be right up your street. If you know someone you think would be suitable, please let them know!

Event #212 – Happy 2020!

Worth saying again.... Happy 2020 everyone!

Another amazingly busy event last week with 352 enjoying the rather splendid conditions - a slight chill but no wind and some sunshine at times. Perfect weather for running and according to the results, 23 of you achieved a PB :-)

Here's a small sample of this week's photos (thanks Paul!).. For the whole album just click on the image below to hyperjump over to our new 2020 photo album:

JEM_0225-COLLAGE

With it being the start of a new year etc. super stats-man Neal has sent some stats for the top all-time Malling attendances. No surprise perhaps that Mr Blount is reigning supreme at No.1 which probably makes him a very shiny gold level obsessive - well done Neal!

Sadly now with Christmas and New Year fading into the distant memory - like a bad curry, we say 'goodbye' to being able to do more parkruns in two weeks than you can shake a stick at. Sad times.

Being January the big question now is when does the snow and ice start! Keep your fingers x'd but please do always check for cancellations before setting out. If your first choice event is cancelled also check your second choice before shooting off. During the pre-Xmas flooding we had people turning up from a cancelled Maidstone only to discover we were cancelled too.

Milestones

We had a number of official and unofficial milestones this week:

Phil Ladbrook (100)
Steven Barratt (50)
Louise Hammond (100)
Evelyn Eldridge (150)
Robbie Eldridge (150)

Well done all of you!

Barcodes

A quick reminder that following an unfortunate incident where our barcode box blew over and deposited it's contents in the mud, we no longer hold spare barcodes. This accords with the HQ position that it's much better for runners to have their barcode, and hence ICE info, on their person rather than locked away in a box. With that in mind it might be a great time to upgrade your sweaty dog-eared scrimp of paper with a lovely new barcode product and help keep parkrun free?

..and finally

We'd love to say a big thank you to everyone who ran, walked, jogged or staggered with us last year and also to the many un-sung heroes who made it all possible. Here's to 2020 - let's do it all again!!

Event #210 – Christmas Day 2019

36AB9079-0C22-47F9-A1FA-E3D9E04DC73D_1_105_c
Our first ever Christmas Day parkrun event here at Malling so we were a little uncertain as to how many people might turn out... we figured probably about 100 but instead a whopping 324 of you chose to visit the scenic (and now slightly less damp) Leybourne Lakes Country Park! As if by the magic of Christmas the weather was sunny and mild and we're sure this played it's part in the hight turnout :)

We had LOTS of Christmas themed hats, jumpers etc but thanks to local running group Beginneers2Runners, we also had a bunch of Santa suits for our volunteers. Here's a sample, but there are many more in our google photo album..
DB99CA42-B342-460F-A23D-E55FDBC5AEED_1_105_c-COLLAGEIf all that wasn't enough Wilhelmina bought along her accordion to serenade us with Christmassy music!

Andy Brooks (100)
Kimberly Springhall (100)
Stuart Penney (100)
Rob Johnson (200)
David Brooker (200)
Rachel Turney (300)

Sadly because of the cancellation last weekend, Brian Martin didn't make his 100th as planned. Never mind, his family were still over from California and will hopefully still be here on Saturday!

We had a strong showing from our little-sister event Manor Park Junior parkrun and it was really great to see them all! On a related note, Manor Park ED Laura is stepping down at the end of the year and we're looking for one or two people to share the role as Co-event directors. This is a rare opportunity to get involved behind the scenes at parkrun with a chance to build upon the amazing foundation that Laura and her team have created. Full training and support would be provided; if you or someone you know might be interested they can get in touch for a quick chat about what's involved.

..and finally
We'd like to say a big thanks to everyone that has volunteered through the course of 2019 and especially those who gave up their Christmas Day morning. Thanks also to those who bought us chocolates, mince pies and even some wine - totally unexpected and very naughty!

We're still in need of a few more volunteers so please do consider it - or drag along an unsuspecting relative?

New Years Day
Remember, we're NOT on for NYD, however you may spot some of us doing doubles at nearby events :-)

Event #206

Our apologies, the run reports have been a bit thin on the ground recently which is mostly because co-ED Darran has been off galavanting around the country doing tourist and ambassador type things! Sadly we didn't get any photo's this week  - if you have any please feel free to upload and share!!

According to ours stats guru Neal... last week we reached a total of 7500 unique runners having taken part since 2015 and should pass 200,000km this coming weekend!

You may be aware we had a medical emergency last weekend - a runner complained of being feint headed with a racing pulse at the finish. After showing no signs of improvement after several minutes the decision was taken to transfer to a warm car and then to call an ambulance. It turns out to have been quite a serious cardiac related event and the person in question was kept in hospital for testing although we're very pleased to learn they have now been discharged.

You will be pleased to know we take your safety very seriously with most of the core team having been on an AED/CPR course. You may have seen that every week we have a backpack containing first aid kit and defibrillator sat next to our "medi bike" which is ready to go at all times. But this is where our parkrun community comes in and is why we often ask for additional volunteer marshals - so that in the unlikely event that someone needs help out on the course, we get notified by radio as quickly as possible. We'd like to thank all those people who've marshalled for us this year and hope that many more will consider giving it a go from time to time in the future!

If you are a first aider or have medical training and wish to make yourselves known to the volunteer team please feel free to do so - it's always reassuring to know that extra help is close at hand should it be needed :-)

Coming Up!
This coming Saturday is the last of the Month so that means Malling 5K Your Way and Pacer Week!

Christmas parkrun!
We're still looking for a couple more marshals so please get in touch if you or perhaps a family member fancies it!

On a related note... if you are expecting to get some new running gear over Christmas or in the sales and have any old (but still useable) kit to get rid of, how about donating it? ED Darran recently visited the parkrun held at Feltham Young Offenders Institute where they are often very short of suitable athletic clothing for the boys. If you have anything suitable to donate please bring it along clean and bagged up we'll pass it on.

This Saturday, being the last in the month, is both pacer week and 5K Your Way! We have a number of different pacing options for you from 30-something down.

Volunteer Vacancies

As you may know we've been looking for future Run Directors to join the team. Please do give this some thought as this is your event and we need to make sure we have new talent in the pipeline for when we get old and crusty!

On a related subject our sister event, Manor Park junior parkrun, is looking for an Event Director (or a couple of Co-Event Directors) - if you might be interested please email jo.frazer-wise@parkrun.com to find out more.

Last, but not least, we're still after Christmas Day volunteers - we need your help to make this happen!
