Nobles parkrun Event #97 – 12th October 2019

Wow! Fame at last, after a brief conversation with Manx Radio, my soft Southern tones were heard over the airwaves on Mandate last Friday!
For those without a 'translate' button on their radio, it was a good bit of advertising for our little community event.....

https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/local-park-run-celebrates-2nd-birthday/

We also welcomed a few first timers this week.
We saw the introduction of our new 'finish tokens'.....hoorah, after losing some of our essential kit to finish token magpies we decided to replace them all....including the necessary sought after token #1 - brilliantly modelled below by Mr Brian Butler (is this the only chance he will get to hold the famed #1???) and won this week by a brilliant finish by Jon Mc Gowan

12-10 New token

We also met this little lovely first timer....Georgina Edwin-Reed, ably supported by Mum, Vickie

12-10 Edwin Reed

128 people ran this week, where last year we had 46 intrepid participants - show how far we have come in 2yrs

A timely reminder that its birthday week next week.
So please come along and see if we can break through the 140 barrier or beyond.
Please arrive by 8:45 as we plan to do our awards presentation before the start - so please get your votes in by PM to our Facebook page.
There will be cake......and please do dress up if the 'fancy dress' takes you lol

And don't forget your barcode

Nobles parkrun Event #96 – 5th October 2019

Before each Nobles parkrun sets off, we always show our appreciation for the volunteers who marshall and organise our weekly run around the park. A special thank you goes out to those helpers who came forward at the 11th hour this week. Without those good people giving up their time, Nobles parkrun cannot take place. Why not give it a try one week? No qualifications necessary, and it is guaranteed to give you a good feeling to start your weekend!

You may have noticed that there was a bit of rain on the IOM earlier in the week! The prospect of a slightly damp course didn't stop over 100 happy smiley runners turning up again this week. A good number of visitors and a few first timers too. Great feedback as always for our event - tell your friends and family, all ages and abilities are always welcome!

Special mention goes out to former IOM resident Shylet Sitima. Now a fully fledged Australian, Shylet always tries to take part in a parkrun wherever she travels. When organising a trip back to Europe, including to the IOM to see a friend, one of the first things she checked was if she could run Nobles parkrun. Oh, and I forgot to mention that she also ran the Berlin marathon last week! Well done Shylet, see you back at Nobles next time you are on the IOM!

5-10-19

A reminder that on Saturday 19th October we celebrate our 2nd Birthday! Put the date in your diaries, and please try to get along early that week as there will be a few prizes presented before we start the run. Did I mention that there will be cakes??

See you next week!

Well- this week was Lets Run isle of mans second takeover! Liz Partridge headed up the squad with many helpers from the Lets Run gang helping out!

Let’s Run Isle of Man is a local running community- not club! Just some like minded people of all running abilities coming together to enjoy (!?!) Running ! They were are our first set up meeting and we grown integral to each other’s communities! It’s fun, it’s free and it’s super inclusive! Find them on Facebook for more info- it will be one of the best decisions you make if you want to get out there for yourself!

The morning had perfect weather conditions with the sun showing itself and the rain staying away! The park has seen some rain recently so there were lots of muddy runners but what’s not to like about that!

As always, everyone brought their smiles and great energy to our lovely parkrun!

Another not so gentle reminder that we are '2' on 19th October, just over two weeks time, so please make sure you join us.
And keep your nominations coming in for Volunteer of the Year and Parkrunner of the Year......you also have just enough time to become the fastest male or female resident, the benchmark set very high at 16:28 and 19:13.

See you Saturday

Nobles parkrun Event #93 – 14th September 2019

Back from a two week sabbatical, and boy we had missed it - honestly.

14-9-19

But the weekend started with a bombshell - our 'driving force' wasn't in the best of health when she woke, so we lost our VC for the day, and my 'set-up' buddy - Ali.
Thanku Kerry for stepping in to allocate our hi-vis heroes

The next hiccup came when we discovered late Friday that the central footpath was being dug-up! So Saturday morning found us with an impromptu 'slight' route alteration.
Thanku Arnie and Len for early doors assistance. We hope the works will be complete by our next event - fingers crossed.

The final surprise - I got to run!!!!!!
With the assistance of Liz taking on RD and the rest of the volunteering roles filled, I got my chance to do my first parkrun for what seems like forever, and completed, after a struggle, my 97th parkrun - that 100 milestone is within touching distance lol...….and my knee remained in one piece.

We continue to see regular milestones, and this week proved no different with our very own Peter Duchars hitting his '50' milestone, along with visitor Joanna Zub. Well done both
Peter is pictured here with our new 'Milestone HiVis'

A couple of reminders / updates

On 19th October we celebrate our 2nd birthday, so our annual celebration changes our format slightly. We are looking to repeat our mini awards ceremony at 08:45, so this will push our first timers brief earlier to 08:35, and ask all volunteers to be prompt for 08:30.
As ever we ask for your input for a couple of the awards.
Fastest male and female resident will be awarded from our statistics, as will most improved parkrunner. But, we need you to vote for 'Volunteer of the Year' and 'Parkrunner of the Year' - please PM or email your votes, before Wednesday 16th October.
Donations of cakes etc welcome, and fancy dress will be applauded.

University duties also call so we are looking at willing volunteers to cover our event on Saturday 28th, we have a takeover weekend that week and popular local running group ' Lets Run Isle of Man' will be in charge, with Liz Partridge taking on the Run Director role. Lets Run members will be helping too and available to speak to if you want more information in regard to this extremely friendly group.

Look forward to seeing you on parkrunday - with my side kick fit and healthy
