Nobles parkrun ‘Star Wars Day’ Event #74 – 4th May 2019

Not a bad way to say goodbye to Nobles for the next five weeks......with a dry event lol
How different could the weather have been compared to this time last week.

On a personal note I reached the 100 mark of having volunteer on a 100 separate occasions / events......and someone who will remain unnamed subtly let you for Kirby! :-)
Embarassed but proud

Our Star Wars event signalled, for us, the start of TT as we politely hand the area back to the racers for five weeks. It was good to see so many of you taking the theme fully on board and dressed to impress

We even say the return of Paul Moulton, who came to see us at the start - filming a nice little interview to help us promote our event even more on MTV (please see the embarrassing link on our Facebook page)

We got the opportunity to celebrate last weeks London Marathon with a couple of the courageous finishers who brought along their 'bling'.....pictured below is regular Brian Butler, finishing well inside a sub 4hr on the day and only just missing out on a PB this week on his return to parkrun....well done Brian and all those finishers

A massively important reminder was given before yesterdays start, and I repeat now...…...we move to Conrhenny next week, Saturday May 11th! Please let as manay people know as possible, especially those first timers who have yet to attend their first event.

Conrhenny - alternative route

The above map should help remind those that attended last year during Manx Gp of its whereabouts....
To assist those without ease of access, and to minimise the impact on the car park area, we would like to offer some simple form of 'take a fellow runner' scheme. For those without an available lift please give us a shout out on Facebook and we hope those regulars attending can swing by the Grandstand and fill a car seat. Obviously this is not guaranteed but will help.

One final shout out goes to Lisa Whorrall and Helen Bedford who are taking part in the following event on 11th May (next Saturday)
The fifth Run for the 96 5k allows participants to register and run as a virtual race, meaning you can complete this as part of our next event

Well done ladies....another group medal photo I think!

Enjoy your weekend and see you at the plantation on Saturday
