Parkrun #91

Run Report 31 st August 2019
Welcome to this week’s run report, on Saturday we said a windy goodbye to our temporary holiday
home up at the Conrhenny for this year, now that the Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT are over we
will be moving back to our usual location in Nobles Park.
Early morning set-up was thoroughly wet, windy and miserable for our intrepid volunteers, in fact
we were anxious to see if there would be any trees down after all the gales in the night!! but luckily
all was well and by the time we had prepared the course the rain had stopped, leaving the just wind
to nicely blow-dry us all.
One slight drawback of our events at Conrhenny is the lack of nearby toilets, which we think
accounts for Rachel’s stance in the photo, whereas Geoff, Paul, Neil, (and Monroe the dog) all have a
vast array of trees to choose from lol.

Although the racing action on the mountain course was completed we still had some motorcycling
related guests staying on to enjoy their last few days on the island, giving us a good sprinkling of
visitors and some first timers.
Considering it was one of those ‘peep around the curtains and scuttle back to bed’ mornings, (well
that’s how I felt anyway lol) 71 hardy souls still lined up for the start, we also had a full roster of our
amazing volunteers willing to stand out there in the elements to keep us organised and safe, we
cannot thank you enough for your dedication, the efforts of each and every one of you is greatly
appreciated.
If anyone would like to help out for future events please opt-in to receive volunteer emails on your
profile, we rely hugely on the help of our volunteers to keep the event running, and even if you can
only commit to do one every now and then it is still a great help, and remember, several volunteer
roles such as set-up, tail walker, results processor still enable you to run too, so you don’t have to
miss out on a run to help us out, and by the way results processing is not as scary as it sounds, full
training over tea/coffee and toast is available to anyone who fancies a go, just let us know.
This week also saw another milestone as Dominic Millard hit his 50 th parkrun, there are few people
more dedicated than Dominic when it comes to parkrun, he’s not only a regular runner, but when
we are at Conrhenny he also cycles about 5 miles, mostly uphill, and often in the rain, to get there,
runs a regular low 23 minute 5k, and then cycles home again afterwards, that is one tough and
dedicated guy, well done Dominic!!

See you all at Nobles Park next Saturday, as we steam towards our 100 th event in just a couple of
months time.

Nobles parkrun Event #78 – 1st June 2019 TT Week

Well I think this years TT is officially classed as a wash out thus far (I'm writing this from home, looking out my window at a white out!)

However, the wet stayed at bay long enough to great 89 of you to this weeks event, our first ever TT event.
We chose to theme the event around motorbikes (no surprise!) and put a charity spin on it by collecting for the Dan Kneen Fund. So our car park was a mix of cars and bikes this week, welcoming several course marshals to the party - clearly keeping them busy for the day.
I am so pleased to say that we collected £106.25 - thankyou one and all.

1-6 Dan Kneen

Pre run, regular Terry Bates donated a TT hat to the cause. So we offered the hat to the first junior finisher - who was Conrhenny first timer Corrie Bate.....well done Sir!

1-6 Hat winner

Its our last week at our temporary home next week, so we are hoping to say a fond farewell (until August) to this wonderful location, by trying for our biggest numbers there - can we top the tonne again???????

Heres a few pics to remind you that it doesn't always rain......lol

1-6 3

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.

Nobles parkrun Event #63 – 16th February 2019 Valentines Special

Morning had broken.....so we fixed it......and then went running!

Feb 16

Preparing the course in daylight for the first time this year made such a difference to our early set up team, not a head torch to be seen, as they prepared for a Valentines Event - both a feeling of Spring and love in the air.
Amazingly the weather also played its part by attending as a pair - mild and dry! The rain managed to stay away on its lonesome until at least an hour after we had packed up and gone for breakfast.
Hers a few of our smiling Valentine participants...

Feb 16 Valentines

It was another triple figure attendance with 100 of you smiling folks making it to this weeks start line in slightly breezy but otherwise sunny conditions, including 14 first timers and a sprinkling of parkrun tourists - covering Brighton, Stockport and Northwich. We also met up with friends Donna Middleton and Ian Howard, for our regulars they may remember this lovely couple being here last August at Conrhenny - completing the event then straight out to complete a half marathon, supporting the 401 Challenge. They returned to complete our 'original route', in better weather, and we hope to see them both back around TT.

Donna and Ian

Todays event also saw the ever smiling Peter Callin complete his 50th parkrun and achieve his '50' milestone t-shirt, joining our band of red t-shirt owners. Peter pictured below on his way to yet another sub 22 minute run...and still smiling.....well done Peter.

Peter Callin

A special thanks to our fantastic group of willing volunteers, who ensured everything ran safely and smoothly again for us, your help is always hugely appreciated - especially our 'Quayle' clan, both Geoff and Anthony bringing back our most 'remote' posts and signs after the event. I can confirm that Geoff, pictured below, is only removing the signs - the lamppost remains in situ..

Nobles parkrun Event #53 – 8th December 2018

Evening parkrun family

A bit of an exhausting week this week, especially waiting to see what the weather was going to do - heavy rain, high winds, we seem to have had it all during the week.
Thankfully the wind died down during set-up and the rain never showed - not until I got home at least and the results were processed.

At least we are as close as we can get to weather proof - for those with good memories you may recall that this time last year was our second cancellation, the 2nd in six weeks!
The picture below may help jog a few minds.....

9 Dec 2017

Look how chilly the volunteers are lol

This week was an improvement....

8th Dec 2018

The deterioration in the weather is a clear sign that 'winters coming', whilst those nursing a hangover is a clear sign that Christmas is just round the corner.
Those worse for wear volunteers will of course stay unnamed and therefore unshamed - all I will say is check out the volunteer list below and choose your favourite lol
One of the many positive results of the many planned Christmas works parties etc, especially on pay day weekend, is the numbers available to volunteer increase massively - next weeks roster is nearly full already
Thankyou all

For all the newly registered runners I thought it timely to post the parkrunners guide below, it reflects the pre run brief - but sorry, it wont be replacing my story telling pre-09.00

Parkrun Code

From the parkrun management team - it was great to see one of our original volunteers return this week after what seems a lengthy asbsence, and back in full flow over the coming weeks - welcome back John Guest

Less than two weeks till our festive fancy dress run - have you got your costume yet?
These guys below have - the motorcycle Santa run for Rebekah House took place just after we finished close down in pit lane, mince pies and coffee served to all - don't go getting any smart ideas!

Santa Run

See you Saturday

Nobles parkrun Event #27 – 12th May 2018

So its farewell for now........

Four weeks without our little event! Lets treat it as half term shall we?

I probably need the rest after the week we have endured. The park changed daily as the TT crews began to move in - erecting fences, road track, marquees etc. Three weeks before practice week - lets hope they get it right.
So after several dummy runs to get the distance within the area we could run, a few curt calls to get fencing opened etc, late Friday we were good to go.

With the addition of the Manx Rally behind the Grandstand, set up on Saturday morning was a slight challenge. Without access by car our posts, signs and gear was trolleyed round by hand - the quickest I have ever got to 10,000 steps lol. It took a little longer, but we got there in the end. Marshals allocated, first timers brief done - a few minutes late we eventually got under way.

Note to ones self - the devils in the detail. Due to the change to the finish, and a crucial sign missing, there was some confusion at the end for those finishing first. I sincerely pass on my apologies for those that ran slightly over the prescribed 5km yesterday, especially those visiting.

Thankyou to all those who took part in Turning Nobles Orange - a very colourful sight indeed, and a few pound raised to pass on to the Rob Vine Fund at the Hoggery tomorrow. Well done to those runners who done the double by heading down to do Prom Run after. Pictured here with a sunny Douglas back-drop is regular runner Dave Lawrie (warmly known as 'slow-Dave' by a shy and retiring friend) on his way to a PB. Not so slow now eh Dave!

C6DF508F-CCEC-44E4-82F9-1F0ADEE4B175

We officially return on Saturday 16th June 2018, what route we have will depend on what's left within Nobles and what state the park is in. But we are returning! Keep in touch with social media and let us know what you are up to, especially if you are doing some parkrun tourism or in the mix at TT - pics a plenty please.

Finally before I go and put my feet up for four weeks......I would like to thank every single one of you for helping make sure this event happens every week (almost). We now regularly see about 10% of our 700 registered runners every Saturday, with an average of 30% being first timers. And I cant thank those that volunteer enough, from the bottom of my heart your willingness to sacrifice an hour of your time on a Saturday never goes unnoticed or unappreciated - our little army of hi-vis heroes (young and far too old pictured below).

Orange

From me, Ali, Liz, Lynda, Tara, Charlie, Kerry and the team - thankyou for the last 7 months - and see you ALL in June

Nobles parkrun Event #17 – 3rd March 2018

Well, it would appear this island of ours is made of sterner stuff. With over 100 plus cancelled parkrun events this weekend in the north of the UK we stood firm (probably as we were frozen) and ensured the event went ahead. With the support of our core team and volunteers the route was checked through the week and again first thing Saturday morning, many thanks to Lee Worsfold, who ran the course prior to the start of the event - dealing with two small patches of ice in the lower park.

Snowy Nobles

Apologies to all 24 runners and our volunteers, as the pre run brief was done in record time due to the less than tropical temperatures - and the concerning colour Brian Butlers legs were going ;-)

Low numbers matched low temperatures - but all were smiling, as we get to see on a weekly basis........and as shown by our regular finish line smiler, Ali 'Wheres Your Barcode' Kirby.

Ali Kirby

Event plans are starting for Easter so look out for that, and we are currently looking for volunteers to take on the events late in April and May.....as we are sneaking off to hunt some sun. Its easy, supported and very rewarding......shout if you are interested.

Winter Route – from 16th December 2017

Morning

With recent poor weather and subsequent cancellations the core team has reassessed the route to help give us better protection from the elements and improve our chances to run each event.

The main change is to no longer use the grassed area of the 'dog walking section' but to utilise the tarmac paths within the unused car park adjacent to the field - following an 'S' pattern - this then joins the original route by the bowling green. We also have the ability to use the Granstand access paths during the Winter months - this assists avoiding areas of the top field that can suffer when water logged.

The new area is adequately signed and marshaled to ensure the safety of all.

We believe these small changes will also benefit the areas of the park to recover during the winter and help support the longevity of the event

The following link contains a map as a rough guide to the changes; https://www.strava.com/activities/1314540717

Thankyou for your continued support
