Cancelled 11/01/2020

Saturday’s parkrun 11/01/2020 is cancelled at the park’s request due to gales and high winds forecast from 7am. They are closing the woodland section due to the danger from falling trees and branches.

 

Normanby Hall parkrun # 111 – 4 January 2020

Well, as was expected, todays parkrun was a more calm event with approximately half the numbers taking part from that of New Years Day.

It was nice to see so many first timers this week. I hope the parkrun today was not too challenging. Rest assured it only gets easier.

This week 343 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 46 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 25 volunteers:

Brian WEAVER • Matthew SYLVESTER • Robert TAYLOR • Rob MARSHALL • Sarah FREEAR • Helen LONGCAKE • Karen TAYLOR • Aaron LONGCAKE • Abigail SYLVESTER • Helen DRAYTON • Megan DRAYTON • Rory LONGCAKE • Jack SYLVESTER • Debbie BROWN • John JARVIS • Jackie MCMAHON • John MCMAHON • Eleanor ROGERSON • Martin DRINKWATER • Ben LONERGAN • Susan V COULT • Paul STANNARD • Stacy MCMAHON • Emma PEARCE • Madeline BOULGER

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Normanby Hall parkrun Results Page.

The male record is held by William STRANGEWAY who recorded a time of 15:45 on 12th January 2019 (event number 62).
The female record is held by Abigail SCALES who recorded a time of 19:16 on 2nd November 2019 (event number 101).
The Age Grade course record is held by Caroline WHEELHOUSE who recorded 93.64% (20:26) on 7th July 2018 (event number 34).

Normanby Hall parkrun started on 4th November 2017. Since then 4,988 participants have completed 27,453 parkruns covering a total distance of 137,265 km, including 5,841 new Personal Bests. A total of 359 individuals have volunteered 2,553 times.

I wonder if anyone has a desire to improve their time in completing parkrun. Whilst the parkrun would never be classified as a race parkrun is all about improving our wellbeing. For many  their wellbeing is improved if they are able to zip round the course at a faster pace. So how could this be achieved?

1) If you are a newcomer to running then just turning up each Saturday morning and doing your best at an even pace - no sprints and no recovery slow downs - just the same level pace you can achieve all the way round. This will lead to improved times.

2) If your parkrun result times have become similar week after week and you are unable to get out on other days for a run or walk why not try this  plan for two weeks out of every three parkruns. - When you arrive out of the narrow woodland path onto the main park road near the walled garden and Marshal point 2 run faster than your normal parkrun pace (briskly but at an even pace) until you reach Marshal Point 5. At this point instantly drop to a recovery run (slightly slower than your normal parkrun pace) until you reach The Tractor Turn, Marshall Point 7. Return to your brisk pace back to Marshal Point 6 before returning to your recovery run. As you pass the Hall door return to the brisk pace until you reach the turn in front of the main gate into Normanby village and Marshall Point 3. Return to your recovery pace to the finish line.

3) If you can find time to get out midweek apply the same principle as (2) That is - find and plan a relatively flat 5K route for yourself and break it up into a warm up section of 1.5K followed by 3 brisk sections of 0.5K alternating with 2 recovery sections of 0.5K before a final 1K steady to the end. These distances do not have to be precise as you will need to base it on memorable landmarks from one week to the next. The key is basically to intersperse effort with recovery.

Happy parkrunning.

See you Saturday.

 

Normanby Hall parkrun #110 01/01/2020

Happy New Year!

We were definitely a bit busier than last year: 741 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 225 were first timers and 71 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 74 different clubs took part! It was also 8 people's first time doing any parkrun. We promise its not usually as hectic!

It looks like North Lincolnshire is the place to run because Normanby was the 34th biggest event in the world today and Scunthorpe was 9th! Out of 825 events this is quite impressive!

It was great to see loads of first timers and tourists from Wythenshawe, Kettering, Hull, Mablethorpe, Lincoln, Boston and even New Zealand!

NEW YEAR'S DAY - we expect to be very busy as one of the only parkrun doubles, with Scunthorpe, in the area so please arrive in good time in case there's a queue to get into the car park. We WILL START AT 9AM otherwise it has a knock on effect for parkrunners wanting to get to Scunthorpe in time for the double.

All that's left is you wish you all a very Merry Christmas from all the team at Normanby Hall parkrun.

Normanby Hall Park tun #107 14th Dec

You can tell we're close to the shortest day when the Run Director is arriving at Normanby Hall with a view like this

However it was dry (in the sky if not underfoot) and we had the added festivities of the Christmas market along the drive. The large puddle in the woods near the tractor turn meant a small change to the course but no one got lost and all seemed to enjoy the event with many staying afterwards for the mince pies they had earned.

This week 176 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Many got into the festive spirit with hats, bells, appropriately attired dogs etc.
