Nobles parkrun Event #72 – 20th April 2019

This week 134 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 64 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.
Welcome back!

Well, its fair to say, we missed you all lol
We are so grateful that in such a short space of time with have such a great group that means a) we can disappear with absolutely no detriment to our little community event, and b) there are so many of you willing to step in, management team and runners alike
Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts.
Truly a parkrun family

2019 Crew

And what a weekend to return too, brilliant weather and an island over flowing with runners for the Easter Festival and Mountain Marathon.
It was great to see so many of you on Friday for the Port Erin 10k - you all done so well, as well as potting a few parkrun milestone t-shirts.

We were a little nervous come Saturday set up, as we were a little ring rusty from our absence - a few added nerves appeared when we noticed runners appearing from 8:20 onwards, definitely not an island trait, and these numbers grew steadily as 09:00 approached - as with last year we were about to benefit from the Festival too - reflected in nearly 50% first timers.

134 crossed the finish line, our second highest attendance, the highest this year.
Pleasing to see all shepherded safely across by tail walker Terry Bates, achieving his 50th milestone this week (a growing group)

parkrun UK made contact in our absence to say that we would soon be receiving some replacement kit, due to recent changes in sponsors - this is good news as we will see new tokens etc
One piece acquired by us went down a storm, our parkrun selfie frame. A great way to engage and promote Nobles as an event

We also tipped the 5000 runner mark, our 5000th runner being 92nd place John Cassells, accompanied by wife Joanna they came specially to complete Nobles in their efforts to run every event in the North West area - well done John.

5000th

Its a timely reminder too to let you know that we only have two more events at Nobles before we move for TT back to Conrhenny. We will be looking for a new volunteering position of 'car park marshal', as we know the parking at the plantation is minimal - this will be one of several volunteering roles that can give the chance for parkrunners to gain volunteer and run credit

See you Saturday guys n gals

Nobles parkrun Event #71 – 13th April 2019

Our 71st parkrun was upon us this weekend. It was bright, beautiful .....and utterly freezing!! The wind brought in some very cold temperatures but also a whole scutch of first timers and visitors 30 out of our 90 runners to be exact!

Our ever present matriarchs are still MIA (sunning themselves in Oz but we won’t mention it as we are all utterly jealous!!) so for one final week we had a ‘guest’ RD to fill Ian’s size 12.5 boots!

With all the first timers we still had many of our ever present runners with the first finisher Andrew Ronan securing a 3rd PB in a row and our lovely Mel Christian Running her 50th parkrun!! Mel has come such a long way - from her first run in a very respectable 34:10 to her current PB of 25:16!!! WOW!!

We are enjoying seeing some great younger runners joining us each week and the determination on their faces when they cross the line is nothing but inspiring! You can parkrun from the tender age of 4+ so the family can all get out and start the weekend off in a fresh and fun way.

As always, we encourage you to volunteer when you can, maybe have a routine of 5 runs then volunteer the next? Remember, 25 Marshal points gets you a snazzy T-shirt !!

Service resumes as normal next week with Ian and Ali back in charge. I’m sure they are so proud of how well parkrun has been run in their absence with our Charlie and Kerry holding down the fort and keeping things going like clockwork. Thanks so much guys!!

See you Saturday for a busy weekend of Easter running

Send in the clowns

Well the circus was in town this week and there was certainly no shortage of clowns dressed in yellow hi-vis vests volunteering for Nobles Parkrun number 70! The Ring master and temporary Run Director, Charlie, was very stressed, in fairness this job is in tents ha ha. Charlie whipped us all into shape and got us underway on time (following the usual show of appreciation for the guys in yellow). Special mention must go to Kerry the lion tamer, for getting all the clowns in place (I'll stop with the circus theme now).

The team were again up early again ensuring the course was set up, without the dodgy tape work from last week!!! In the sunshine the course does look fantastic! Ian and Ali, rest assured, the temporary team are doing a great job in your absence, however, we are all looking forward to being berated by Big Bird again soon.

Running conditions were brilliant, so good we even had one topless runner - thankfully he had a suitable physique. We may require prior notification of this sort of action in future as no doubt there would be a clamber from the local female population to volunteer (to be politically correct perhaps I should omit the word female)

We had a number of visitors this week from Edinburgh, Cumbria and Reading. My apologies as I didn't get the names of the visitors from Edinburgh and Cumbria. Of the three from Reading who arrived on the overnight boat, Ash and Tim overnight are takeing part in the RLT200 on sunday. Anisa, the third visitor, even ran with a broken shoulder well done all and we hope you had a great run

Parkrun 69 with 69 runners!!!

Bernie Ball stepped up to don the Race Director vest today, ably assisted by a small but dedicated team. Notable mention goes to Kerry who organised the volunteers (without the help of Charlie this week). Bernie showed her delegation skills by looking for a volunteer to write the run report - a task Brian Butler swiftly deflected to myself!

The volunteers were out early as usual to set the park up for today's run, a job they managed very well aside from some slightly dodgy tape work for the last corner! There is a core of volunteers who help week in week out, though we also rely on new people to come along and regular runners to take a turn every now and then.

Great running conditions today and Well Done to the 69 runners who took part in Noble's parkrun number 69. We had a good mix of regulars, first timers and visitors and all age groups were present. A trio of local race walkers: Jayne Farquhar, Rebecca Greatbatch and Sharon Cain switched to running for the day. 14 year old Finn Murphy from Peel ran very well and despite the fact that there was nobody close to his heels he put in an impressive sprint finish. Also impressive was Ian Duffers, who always gets round quickly despite pushing a pram!

Ian and Ali - if you are reading this you can rest assured that we are all coping well in your absence. Hope you are enjoying Australia. We actually had a visitor from Down Under today - Dr David Spindler who lives just South of Sydney. He was at parkrun with a friend from the IOM called Peter. I recognised Peter and thought maybe I had seen him at parkrun before. It was only when I asked his name did I realise that I had seen him on TV - he is of course Peter Kennaugh the Olympic and World Gold medal cyclist! David and Peter pictured below after completing today's run.

Run report 75

The weather was great, the sun was shining down on us, our numbers were up on last week, with 75 taking part.

Charlie did an excellent job as Run Director with his inspiring speech at the start! Short but sweet.

Today was all about the youngsters, we had Maddy P helping Charlie set everyone off, Sienna M helping with the tokens, after running one lap with her Grandad, Emma C was 12 yesterday and ran her 12th parkrun today. We also had Sam C finish 8th overall and new PB’s for Max H, Ryan W, Isaac Q and Joshua. It’s lovely to see so many youngsters running with their Mum’s or Dad’s and beating them!

We had a few runners not registered and coming in the top 5, make sure you register to make your runs count and start earning those T shirts!!

Safe travels to Ian and Ali as they spent the next 4 weeks in Australia.

Well done to everyone who took part today and many thanks to all our volunteers.
