It was a wet one today, just like the test event 2 years ago. It doesn't seem like that long ago, yet it feels like its been going forever!

The success of our 100 parkruns is down to the people: the runners, walkers, RDs, dog walkers, regular volunteers, just-once-or-twice volunteers, spectators and DofE volunteers - thanks to everyone who makes our parkrun so friendly.

The event was made possible by 24 volunteers, including Jenny from Wimpole Hall near Cambridge. Jenny was visiting her mum and regularly volunteers at her local park run and decided to do the same here. What a great thing to do, thank you Jenny.

IMG_3514IMG_3510

Madelaine and Emma were also two volunteers today that we're going to see a lot more of over the next 3 mths. They're doing their Duke of Edinburgh award and will be volunteering on a regular basis. Maybe that's something some other people would like to try? You can volunteer occasionally or on a regular basis, it's a good social thing to do and if you're an injured runner it keeps you in touch with your friends at Parkrun. Just e mail Rob on normanbyhallhelpers@parkrun.com.

We like to celebrate our volunteers and also those from other organisations that are doing their bit.

Sarah works for N. Lincs council and workers there have committed to doing 10,000 steps a day through October to raise money for Lindsey Lodge Hospice. As she said park run is a great, enjoyable way to get her steps done.

Finally we've had lots of emphasis today on the volunteers but there were 282 hard working runners, one of whom Mike Coult was running his 50th park run whilst his wife Sue volunteered.

Well done Mike

Normanby Hall parkrun – #98 – 12 October 2019

I always like a a parkrun where a local running club uses our PR as a goal for a few of their new club members to achieve 5K. Today was such a day. Walk Jog Run prepared for and sent into the arena of Normanby Hall parkrun these brave souls. I sensed the achievement not only of the runners completing the event but The Club for helping the runners to achieve. Why do I like such a parkrun? - They gave me a piece of cake of course!

IMG_4558 (1)

It was a perfect running day - No significant wind, dry and overcast. As the Autumnal mornings get darker and it becomes more difficult to fight off the duvet a good running morning makes it all so worthwhile.

This week we had a family from the proposed pr at Barton volunteering and checking our procedures out ready for when they get underway some time in the future. We welcome them back at any time with their gang of volunteers to learn and take away as we did, when Normanby Hall pr were preparing to set up, two years ago learning from Scunthorpe pr.

It was nice to be greeted this week by one runner who latched onto myself who was acting as a pacer last week. She greeted me in friendship this week, much to my relief, as I am sure a case for verbal bullying could have been suggested for my pacing technique. It would be wrong for me not to say well done to Laura Fielding for achieving a PB this week - keep it up  as all of you 41 who achieved a PB this week.

  This week 240 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers.

The event was made possible by 24 volunteers:

Sue ZERGI • Brian WEAVER • Debbie FRARY • Mark BAINES • Elizabeth HACKNEY • Helen DRAYTON • Megan DRAYTON • Emma BUSBY • Mark LONERGAN • Helen STANNARD • Derek LONGDEN • Lesley NICOL • Aaron CHEESEMAN • Amaya MIAH • Jackie MCMAHON • John MCMAHON • Christine FOWLER • Ben LONERGAN • Susan V COULT • Paul STANNARD • Andrew HAYWOOD • Emma HAYWOOD • Jacob HAYWOOD • Tobias HAYWOOD

Please, please volunteer once in a while so our regular volunteers get the opportunity to take part and also make the event even easier to keep alive. Volunteering is so easy, as I can do it, and it is so rewarding. Please e-mail in the first instance normanbyhallhelpers@parkrun.com.

Normanby Hall parkrun Event #97 – 5th October 2019

Apologies for the delay in sending out this weeks run report, I had a little 13.1 mile jaunt with the 'hedgehogs' this morning at the fabulous Normanby Hall, now after I've had a nap and recovered I've had some time to put 'finger to keyboard'!

Yesterday was our October 'Chase the Pacer' day.  Did you Chase, or were you being Chased?  Thank you to all those runners who volunteered to be Pacers, and if you Chased them well done to you particularly if you were one of the 71 runners who secured a Personal Best time, that number of runners is just amazing, well done to you all.

This week 285 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 29 were first timers Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.  We had visitors this week from the Lake District, Dave Bayliff who runs with Walney Wind Cheetahs and whom normally does his parkruns in Barrow.  I had the pleasure of chatting Dave who told me he'd completed 103 different parkruns as well as volunteering on numerous occasions.  I'm sure he'll list Normanby Hal as one of his favourites, eh Dave?   We also had two visitors from Sittingbourne in Kent, Ian Bates doing hios 85th parkrun and Marlena Moutinho doing her 69th parkrun, visiting Normanby Hall for the first time.  They'd come to the area to play roller hockey!  Sounds a bit dangerous to me, but they both commented how much they'd enjoyed our parkrun venue.

Some milestones were achieved this week, Pam Steadman completed her 50th parkrun, Freddie Roberts in Junior 10 category completed his 10th parkrun in a new PB time, and not least was 5 year old Rory Offler completed his 10th parkrun.  Here's Rory enjoying his moment of glory...

First male place this week was taken by Andrew Humphries from Airecentre Pacers RC in 17.45, followed by local boys Sam Blackburn in 18.47 and Matt Isle in 18.48, a hare's breath between them!  First lady this week was Emily Richardson in 21.03 followed by Daisy Bell and Millie Weaver in a tie for 2nd place in 22.37.

The event was made possible this week by 41 fabulous volunteers and pacers:

Simon GRIFFIN • Lindsay O'CONNOR • Sue ZERGI • Andrew WEAVER • Brian WEAVER • Mark CHESMAN • Roz SMITH • Kerry JACKSON • Robert TAYLOR • Rob MARSHALL • Karen WICKENS • Rebecca URRY • Andrew FERGUSON • Sarah FREEAR • Caroline BAINES • Bonnie WILSON • Sarah MITCHELL • Helen LONGCAKE • Steve SHARP • Aaron LONGCAKE • Andrew BROWNE • Neil ROWBOTHAM • Isla LONGCAKE • Sheila KERR • Debbie BROWN • Jonathan WELLER • Anthony MORRIS • Victoria PLAYFORD • Helen STANNARD • Derek LONGDEN • Jackie MCMAHON • John MCMAHON • Sarah GREEN • Anthony FLEET • Martin DRINKWATER • Susan V COULT • Paul STANNARD • Timothy JONES • Daniel JOHNSON • Barry JACKSON • Jayne BOOTH

The event can not go ahead without the required number of volunteers.  It is an arduous task completing the volunteer roster every week, often volunteers have to pull out at last minute for good reason, and appeals then need to go out for replacement volunteers.  If more people would volunteer the job of filling our volunteer roster each week would be so much easier.  Thank you to those runners who put their names on the white board this week, offering to volunteer in upcoming weeks.  Yes, it's that easy!  Put your name on the board with your barcode and preferred date, and a preferred role, if you wish.  Or, you can send an e-mail to normanbyhallhelpers@parkrun.com.

That's all folks, final day of World Athletics now beckons me.  Only 6 days to go to your next parkrun, see you all next Saturday.

Happy running,

Rob

The cafe proved hard to find today as the door to enter it was at the back of the hall and it didn't open until 9.30 so next week when you want a coffee remember to look round the back if the front doors aren't open.

My apologies that the volunteers have not had a mention by name this week but the software had a bit of a glitch. You know who you are and we really appreciate what you do. You will still be credited with the volunteer episode and thank you, thank you so much.
