All parkruns cancelled

parkrun UK have now cancelled all parkruns until the end of March and it is also expected to continue until the end of April. The update from HQ is pasted below.

Rest assured as soon as this is all over we will be back up and running and welcoming you all back.

Notice of cancellation

We’re writing to let you know that, in line with public health advice, we have taken the decision to close all parkrun events across the United Kingdom with immediate effect. Initially, this closure will be in place until the end of March, however this is largely to bring all parkrun countries into the same time frame and we very much expect closures to continue through April at least.

Going forward we will update parkrunners regularly and aim to communicate important information as soon as is appropriate.

We know that this message may be a difficult one for you to receive, and many people will be wondering what to do without their regular weekly catch-up. Please rest assured that we are working hard to develop our strategy so that we are able to support the health and happiness of parkrunners around the world during this difficult time.

Remaining active is incredibly important, and we are working on ways to encourage and support that, however please do not arrange group gatherings at your parkrun venues whilst parkrun events are suspended.

Thanks for your continued support, and please know that the parkrun family is there for you.

Kind regards,

 

Event number 119 – 14th March 2020

This week's run report is not about running its about people.

It was lovely to see so many people still coming out to parkrun today.WhatsApp Image 2020-03-14 at 12.03.32


We had some milestones this week! Faith completed her 10th parkrun and last week, regular tailwalker John Jarvis did his 100th but didn't realise so we celebrated this week.

We also met tourists from Louth, Newark and Wales.

Our amazing Volunteer Coordinator, Rob,  would like me to remind you that we are always looking for new volunteers. Email normanbyhall@parkrun.com if you want to give it a go.

Also, please remember that our SwapBoxes are in the courtyard every Saturday Morning. You don't have to swap - feel free to leave your old kit or just grab something cool. You might even find an old race t-shirt you missed out on

If we don't see you for a while, stay safe and watch out for each other.

We know that parkrun is a run not a race but we have to mention first finisher today David Robinson.

He had a great run and finished only 10 seconds away from the course record, in 15:55. Its his first ever sub16 parkrun and he also claimed a new Age Category Record for VM35-39. Well Done David!

Normanby Hall Park Run #116

Having had a couple of weeks off due to the wind and the damage from fallen trees it was great to be back. 196 runners, 24 volunteers and quite a few spectators braved the weather to turn out. There was a brief flurry of rain before the start but the run itself was only made difficult by the cross wind at the tractor turn and a small amount of mud on course. We noticed some very dirty legs at the finish and suspect people headed straight for the shower when they got home. By the time we finished though it was a lovely day.

IMG_4473

 There were 16 first timer runners today, 3 first time volunteers, and representatives of 16 different clubs took part. A testimony to the variety and inclusivity of Park Run.

You may have noticed something different out on course today - the marshals were a vision in pink. It was the first airing of our new vests and very smart they looked too. If you haven't volunteered before and think you'd look good in pink why not give it a try? It's really enjoyable and gives you a good feeling too.

21 recorded new Personal Bests! Well done to all of you. That's quite something given the weather conditions

NEXT WEEK WE CELEBRATE JOHN'S 100TH - not his birthday (as suggested by Rory) but the 100th time he has volunteered. Quite an achievement

Normanby Hall parkrun, #113, 25th January 2020

The going could have been classed as 'good to soft' this morning, perfect running conditions, with only one faller, we hope young Isaac has recovered after his ankle twist.  This week 312 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 44 were first timers and 64 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.  Results were posted in double quick time this morning which is always great for the volunteers carrying out that task as it means they get more time to sit and chat with parkrunners and eat cake!  But, the speed of results processing is thanks to both you the parkrunners and the volunteers.  Runners for ensuring that they follow finishing protocol by staying in order, always taking a finish token, and only crossing the line once.  The volunteers for recording a time for every runner crossing the line once and ensuring that everyone takes a finish token and have their tokens scanned.  Well done everyone!.  Only one minor blip today, our finish token #158 has taken a vacation!  If you're the one who inadvertently released it to the world, please reign it in and bring it home next week, it's needed every week, no rest days allowed unfortunately!

It was a bit of 'doggy' themed day today with a first at Normanby Hall parkrun, a couch to 5k graduation day for Cannicross doggies and their handlers from the The Dog and Running Company....

IMG_2501

Here we see coach Sarah (centre) with 'graduates' Claire & Cedar, Mel & Rowan, Liz & Winnie and Emma & Dudley.  Well done everyone, we hope you loved the day, and so did your handlers.

A milestone today was achieved by Nicole Williams who celebrated her 50th parkrun at Normanby Hall with friends....

IMG_2502

Here's Nicole (2nd right) with other Normanby Hall regulars Jacky, Bev, Helen and Helen.  Well done Nicole, next one 100!

Today we had some international tourists at Normanby Hall, Burca and Yigit from Istanbul, Turkey, both completing their very first parkrun at Normanby Hall...

Bravo, fantastik koşmak Burca ve Yigit!

Thankyou to you all for giving up your parkrun so that others can still parkrun.  Can everyone reading please consider whether you've given enough back to parkrun for all the free events that you've taken part in.  We need volunteers every week and it shouldn't be the same core of volunteers who turn up week in week out to make your parkrun possible.  Please give a little back, just drop us an e-mail at normanbyhall@parkrun.com with your barcode number to be included on the volunteer roster.  We promise you you'll love it just as much as taking part in the run.

Have a great weekend everyone, see you all next week at Normanby Hall parkrun.
