Normanby Hall parkrun event 109 28 December 2019

As we start  2020 I would like to take part of this run report in asking you to consider the benefits you will gain from volunteering within parkrun not to mention the benefits parkrun community will gain.

We all are probably aware of the benefits of an active lifestyle and that parkrun is an ideal source of this benefit.  While everyone benefits from a boost in physical health, it is believed by some that long-term volunteers have longer lives, less disease, and better overall health. Some research has shown that people who volunteer may be at lower risk of dementia. When you invest the time and energy to volunteer, you are investing in yourself just as much as in the causes you support. Volunteering and freely giving your time, energy, and resources to people and causes around the world can create change on a global scale. It is incredible to think that one person’s efforts can change the life of someone else somewhere in the world. However, the best part, and often overlooked, is that volunteering is just plain fun.

If you are ready to make friends, maybe improve your mental and physical health, and maybe develop new skills along the way, try volunteering. You can change your life and the lives of others when you do.    Don’t overlook the benefits of volunteering.   Embrace them!

Volunteering at your parkrun does not necessarily mean no parkrunning that week. Several of our volunteers volunteer and run on the same day. Having said that it should be possible to get your run in any time and any day of the week so fitting in a volunteer shift should be easy for all parkrunners. Many of our volunteers volunteer about once every 8 to 10 weeks and consequently this act only disrupts their parkrun  about once in every eight or ten weeks.

You can see an event's future volunteer roster via the specific future roster page. To get in touch with the event directly, just send an email to normanbyhallhelpers@parkrun.comWhy not ask to volunteer - whatever your capabilities you can do it.

This week on 28 December there were 645 parkruns take place in the UK and 146955 crossed the finish lines.  Worldwide there were 1610 parkruns with 265641 finishers.

254 participants crossed the finish line at Normanby, of whom 52 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

 A total of 356 individuals have volunteered to date at Normanby 2,495 times.

The event was made possible by our 23 volunteers this week:

Lindsay O'CONNOR • Brian WEAVER • Debbie FRARY • Emma FOWLER • Aaron LONGCAKE • Joy SHIPLEY • Helen DRAYTON • Graham SIMPKIN • Megan DRAYTON • Anthony MORRIS • Helen STANNARD • Lesley NICOL • Janet LONGCAKE • Jackie MCMAHON • Jacky SHELLEY • John MCMAHON • Martin DRINKWATER • Mark WHITING • Paul STANNARD • Lisa PALMER • Barry JACKSON • Emma PEARCE • Madeline BOULGER

Whilst the runners are out this is how the timekeepers amuse themself until the runners return.

We had a large family reunion at parkrun this week. The Day family. Most of this family had flown from their local home nest and now take part at other parkruns. They all re-united at this morning's event.

Normanby Hall parkrun 6th October

Christine Fowler enthusiastically volunteered for the first time this morning. Her first attempt at running was doing the couch to 5K course, where unfortunately she fell and hit her face on the pavement breaking her front teeth. Since then her husband thought he better join her in her runs as she was not to be trusted. She has completed 5 parkruns getting speedier each time, telling us shes feeling much healthier. Lovely to have you join our parkrun family and thank you for the pictures today.

Big thank you to all our soggy but smiling volunteers. We look forward to seeing you again next week.
