#361 by Bryan Lewin

I’m starting this week’s report with a brief supplementary to last week’s – only because I felt the celebrations of the two octagenarians, in particular, deserved greater acknowledgement of their achievements. The “someone completing their 350th parkrun” was, of course, Bob Emmerson (VM85-89) and the “someone completing their 250th parkrun” was Alan Palmer (VM80-84). In addition to Anika (parkrun name) Trotman’s 100, last Saturday was also a milestone day for Peter Moor (200), Jennifer McFadden (150) plus Mary Battison, Michele Brocklebank and Nick Tam (all 50). Jens Walton and Lucy Henman both qualified for a 10 club T-shirt (awarded to junior runners, aged 17 and under, at the time of their 10th run).

And now on to Northampton parkrun #361 – on the 6th April 2019 – where 490 took part, ably assisted by the 32 volunteers (including Kathryn Hall and Kath Middleditch, who both ran in Sunday’s Manchester Marathon … and Kath’s 4 year old ‘High 5 Here’ Arthur … who didn’t).

A 200th parkrun milestone was celebrated by Stephen Johnson (VM65-69) – and, in an incredible coincidence, Stephen’s wife, Alison, finished as 200th female. This lovely couple usually run together – unless, as I jokingly say to them, they’ve had an argument! Paul McFadden and Jackie Coombs both notched up their 100 parkruns and Brighton fan Ralph Stahmann’s Saturday at least started on an upbeat note (by being able to claim his 25 volunteer T-shirt) - although Manchester City later clipped the Seagulls' wings in the FA Cup semi-final. And the guy who regularly marshals on the far corner was volunteering for the 100th time.

First finisher in a time better than 17.57, was I. Fogotmybarcode. First female was a first timer with us, in her seventy first run overall – Ellie Bates, from Chiltern Harriers AC, in 20.28.

We had 34 first-timers in total – 17 visitors having done a few parkruns previously elsewhere; these included Keith and Alison Flint (Redway Runners) and Steph Flint, Alice Barkell (Fleckney and District Running Club), David Stobbs (MK Lakeside Runners) and Simon Ingram (Marston Moretaine Runners). A goodly number from Opus Energy joined our ranks – organised, I suspect, by Gabby Deere – including debutant Sam Lapite, who chased round his former ON Chenecks team-mate, Calvin Budd, to record a highly respectable 19.57.

Impressive percentages on that ‘Age Grade’ column were registered by Andy Green (again), with 83.21%, and Sheila France (VW55-59), with 77.59%, in a PB of 24.19.

Once again, well over 10% of those taking part recorded PBs - there were 73 this week, so no chance of mentioning everyone. Amongst our younger athletes, Matthew Everett, Peter Van Eum, Finley Goldring, Jens Walton, Holly Reed, Stefan Kavanagh, Lucy Henman, Katie Enefer, Lily Bodkin, Tom Exley, Tom Halsey, Jack Spires and Lucy Dixon had deserved ‘New PB!’ against their names in the results. (Theo Haskins (JM11-14) ran a PB of 21.52 last week; he ran 21.52 this week). Our outstanding PB veteran performers included Fiona Crook, Richard Wain and Christine Gillies (all in the 70-74 age range). I’m always amazed by the number of those taking part who improve each week. For example … Dale Holmes – 7 parkruns, all PBs, 42.16 down to 34.44 and Vanessa Watson – 6 parkruns, all PBs, 38.31 down to 28.16. Since 24th November last year Mike Campbell has recorded 12 PBs in 15 parkruns reducing his time from 34.40 to 25.02 and Catherine Nichol’s three parkrun times are 31.05, 29.32 and 27.45! And if there was a more uplifting sight on Saturday than Carole James (WWC) coaxing, cajoling and coercing her mum, Catherine Hill (VW65-69), to knock two minutes off her previous PB, I didn’t see it.

Random mentions go to Katie Swan (VW35-39), who bravely recovered from Ladies’ Day at Aintree on Friday to make an appearance (Clare King – DNS), before embarking on more ‘socialising’ at a wedding later that day and at Wembley on Sunday to see her team, the 'Orns (Watford – the Hornets), win. Sarah Hayle was 361st in event #361 and three runners - James Mason, Lizzie Souter and Joe Hughes - virtually matched our ‘average run time’ of ‘00:28:42’. Ian Coote was 87th in his 87th parkrun. John Fuller (SM20-24) was 23rd male and 24th overall in his 25th parkrun. Hearty congratulations to Kate Smith (VW45-49) for yet another PB and Kate Smith (VW 65-69) for … just running at the same event as your namesake!

I did my marshalling bit (I whimped out of doing the Magic Mile – it seemed colder on that corner this week and I hadn’t thawed out!) and popped into the Good Loaf to enjoy warming refreshments with other parkrunners. A great start to the day!

#360 – by Mollie Smith

My first parkrun was completed in July 2017 in Market Harborough. Coming up to two years later, and Northampton parkrun event number 360 is my 87th parkrun. Northampton was my twelfth parkrun tourist spot. As a regular volunteer for both parkrun and junior parkrun, I’ve given myself the challenge of complete my 100th run and 100th volunteer role on the same day and if all goes to plan, this should work out to be 6th July.

So after an earlier wake up call, we arrive in Northampton and head to towards the hi viz hero’s. We make it to the first timers brief where we’re told the course involves one big lap and a smaller lap. According to the results, there were a total of 44 first timers at Northampton today - amazing!

A starting brief is conducted with numerous celebrations, including someone completing their 250th parkrun, someone completing their 350th parkrun and someone celebrating their 50th birthday. The countdown begins and we’re off. I begin running with my friends Leanne and Jess. Everyone seems nice, friendly and supportive. We spot the photographer and I go for the cheesy grin and jazz hands. After what seems like forever we crossed the finish line and are already looking forward to next week. Event number 360 saw 114 pbs; congratulations to everyone who ran the fantastic event today.

 

#357 by John Kilcoyne

Let’s start with some congratulations. Official members of the J10 club this weekend are James (who celebrated with a new pb) and Joshua. Sherrill, Tracey and Andy are now ready to claim the red 50 t-shirts, and Stephanie has earned a black 100 shirt. In addition, Robin completed the unofficial milestone of 200 parkruns. Well done to all. Happy birthday also to Patrick, celebrating his 17th birthday on Sunday and to Catherine Hickford, turning 40 on Monday.

Thank you to all the volunteers assisting Szabolcs as RD today.

Thank you also to two clubs, Northants Tri and Abington Park Joggers, who turned out in force to support and participate, many as pacers.
Helen and I joined you as tourists from Lincoln this weekend, together with visitors from Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, Birmingham, London and Kent. 22 participants were here for their first ever parkrun. Well done to you all at the start of your own parkrun journey.

Our own visit was for two purposes: our 20th location within the East Midlands region (currently 37 altogether, but the number keeps getting bigger) and to claim a North for our compass challenge. For anyone new to parkrun tourism, there are lots of combinations of locations to give a focus to running at different locations. Search for parkrun Running Challenges for a Chrome browser extension for many more suggestions including the alphabet challenge. As a tourist, you get to see the best of so many other towns and cities across this country and further afield- it is always the best that any community has to offer because parkrun is involved. I have loved every location I have been to with parkrun because of the variety of courses and the friendliness of everyone involved.

I must confess to a soft spot for urban parks because of the pride that get shown off. Northampton has a gem in the Racecourse- so many facilities for residents and visitors, the fabulous architecture within the park and the amazing range of buildings on all sides that parkrunners can appreciate. Add to that an (almost) flat terrain; we didn’t get pbs today, but Helen and I both ran our fastest times since New Year’s Day. Lincoln parkrun is also an urban park although smaller; we will be delighted to welcome you as visitors.
This week 542 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers and 80 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 29 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 37 volunteers:

Vicky ROBERTSON • Terry EGAN • Stavros CARAYANNIS • Leigh BARKER • Anne-Marie SANDOS • Rachel Helen CANHAM • Stephen HOLLOWAY • Tessa HOLLOWAY • Rosemary KENNEDY • Helen ANDREWS • Gemma YOUNG • Gerald BILLIS • Michelle LEWIS • Ralph STAHMANN • Szabolcs MATE • Bobby CHATTERJEE • Matt BUSHELL • Steve MARTIN • Sarah ASHCROFT • Ian BATES • Sue JEFFS • Sharon CONQUER • John KILCOYNE • Alan HALL • Claire THOMAS • Melissa WILDE • Ann WORTHY • Lynette HILL-PARK • Bec LAMBERT • Lee WADE • Julie FITZELL • Marie PASSMORE • Viv POOLE • Sam FREEMAN • Joanne HAYMAN • Debra WARD • Bethany CRESSEY

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Northampton parkrun Results Page.
The male record is held by Andrew BADDELEY who recorded a time of 14:52 on 16th April 2016 (event number 207).
The female record is held by Emily WAUGH who recorded a time of 17:14 on 8th July 2017 (event number 270).
The Age Grade course record is held by Angela COPSON who recorded 105.64% (20:24) on 25th April 2015 (event number 156).
Northampton parkrun started on 5th May 2012. Since then 13,510 participants have completed 118,595 parkruns covering a total distance of 592,975 km, including 21,431 new Personal Bests. A total of 1,141 individuals have volunteered 6,828 times.

# 356 by Bryan Lewin

After a weekend away, up North (and before a week away … seeking some sun!), I resumed marshalling at my usual spot for Northampton parkrun #356. Last week I was spectating at the English National Cross Country Championships at Harewood House, near Leeds (where my grandson was competing), but I managed to squeeze in a parkrun myself – at nearby Temple Newsam (‘undulating’ course, no chance of a PB!).

On my arrival at the Racecourse, it was therefore a pleasant surprise to bump into Noah Bennett, who ran in the same race as my grandson in the Championships and, according to the Chron, had “used his track pedigree to finish in a superb 14th position, only seconds away from a top 10 finish” (and, it might be noted, Noah’s sister, Alice, also produced an “outstanding performance” at the Championships).

Fresh from these endeavours, Noah was second overall finisher on Saturday with a new PB (only one other person has ever bettered his time of 16.56, in JM 11-14, at Northampton). Leading the 450 runners, walkers, pushers, pullers and joggers this week was Noah’s club mate Mark Hill, who weaved his way round in 16.29, and our first female finisher was Annette Golawska (who lopped 50 seconds off her previous best time to finish in 20.18). Andy Green was third home in 17.59 (the best performance ever in VM 55-59 at our parkrun) … although not quite a PB for Andy, which is still 17.43 (the best performance ever in VM 50-54 at our parkrun!). He later led all the way in the Magic Mile to clock 5.35.

Unsurprisingly Noah and Andy both achieved over 80% on the ‘Age Cat’ thingy – as did second female finisher Kate Bond (VW 55-59) for her 21.50. Nathan Lamb (JM 11-14), who was ninth overall with 19.08, ‘scored’ 79.97%

Amongst our fabulous 450, I could only spot one milestone – Dee Munro, completing her 50th (and I know there was a significant birthday, but not the lady’s identity – sorry). There were 44 first timers (30 doing their first ever parkruns), including a ‘car full’ from Stamford Striders – Caroline Robertson, Helen Schofield, Amy Hodgson and Janine Buck. Neil Currant – 87 in total - was at his 54th different parkrun and Tanya O’Neill, a parkrun tourist from Cardiff, obviously enjoyed her first timer experience here, taking advantage of our newly acquired parkrun photoframe to post on social media (and be the profile pic on our Facebook page)! Len Voralia notched up his 402nd parkrun (Bob did his 346th).

It might have been muddy for the touring Crayons, and others we normally see, at Watermeadows (Towcester) parkrun, but the dry, brighter weather conditions encouraged 64 athletes to register new PBs at the Racecourse. As always, its not possible to credit everyone, so only a few mentions … Amanda Stohrer (11 consecutive PBs since 8th December – from 38.29 to 34.35); Rachel Ilsley (knocking nearly four minutes off, from 33.29 to 29.47); Mark Warren (just three parkruns since October 2016 – 29.09, 27.04 then 24.01!); Jamie Clark (26 parkruns since April 2018, all at Northampton, 11 PBs, started with 30.47, now down to 25.19) … and our oldest/youngest PBers of the week - Mick Bond (VM 65-69) with 29.22 and Tallulah Havard (JW10) with 26.06.

Crayons_Watermeadows

It seems slightly unfair, to me, that you’re unlikely to be mentioned in a run report unless you’re a milestoner, PBer or whatever – so some completely random mentions. Sarah Kaced, a first timer, was position 356 in parkrun #356; Derek Finan was 312th in a time of 31.2 (well, 31.19 – a PB); Marie Fitzhugh was 433rd in 43.3 (well, 43.26); The average run time for our parkrun is 28.40 - Mike Tebbutt (28.39) and Sue Davis (28.44) were closest this week. And Tim Leah gets named and shamed for no barcode!

My stint on the corner was over; I joined tail walker Lynette and had an enjoyable chat about a couple of unexpected subjects (!) with a lovely group on our way back to the finish … then did the Magic Mile with another lovely group. Stirling Green - JM 11-14 - completing it in 6.21, following his earlier parkrun PB of 21.04.

#353 by Bryan Lewin

If you’ve taken part in the Northampton parkrun over the last couple of years, you will have probably seen the #fitfam group (and you'll definitely have heard Jane/Karen!!). The group is made up of family members; as they say "yes we’re all related, love spending time together and now run together". After completing their objective of doing ‘80 events for Dad's 80th birthday’ (between them) in his memory last year, they ambitiously targeted the 9th February 2019 Northampton parkrun to celebrate ‘Dad's 81st birthday’ with a few milestones. Last week's parkrun cancellations could have scuppered less resourceful individuals, but all was well in the end - five of the team achieved their 100 parkruns (Karen Clark, Jane Timmins, Sarah Dorey, Madeleine Wain and Dave Butler running - or hobbling! - round) and Matty Reid completed his 50th. I'll simply say that the group as a whole are a great advertisement for what parkrun is all about ... and that this was a truly fit and fitting tribute to a man who was obviously much-loved.

They weren't the only 'milestoners' among the 476 athletes who walked, jogged or ran Northampton parkrun #353 (a few notable absentees – six of the ‘Crayons’ went to Bicester, for example). Wendy Hammond, on her Racecourse debut (with 18 others), and the discreet R Wood (VW 60-64) clocked up their 100s - Christy Gillert and Sarah Bickers (along with her labradoodle running partner, Archie) each ticked the 50 box.

The aforementioned Wendy is a Vegan Runner – we had a group of ten Vegan Runners on Saturday, eight were first timers with us and three finished in the top eight. Amanda Salter brought along some Bushfield Joggers, Chris Jeanes was a first timer from Redway Runners and we had the usual smattering from local clubs.

 

There were, in fact, 27 ‘pure’ first timers, and, at the other end of the appearances scale, our 3rd place finisher, William Shippin, in his 357th and Len Voralia (his number 399!) have astonishingly both run more than Bob The Legend (343)! Despite the ‘blustery’ conditions, 61 athletes somehow managed a PB. It’s not possible to reference all of them (and apologies for significant omissions), but, in no particular order … Syreeta Fonso (7 runs at Northampton in the last 12 months – all PBs); Danny Clarke (five Northampton parkruns since October 2016, all PBs); Linda Kier (VW 65-69) (started this year; PB each time); Andrew David Ballantyne (4 PBs on the trot); Kieran Bodkin (three parkruns in 2019 – first was 35-50, this week’s was 24-58); Mike Campbell (from 37-24 in September 2018 to 26-42 – 11 PBs in 17 runs); George Pratt (from 33-48 to 26-42 in his second ever parkrun); Sam Freeman (8 PBs in last 11 parkruns); Liam Browne (five parkruns in 2019 – started with 51-00, now 42-36); Amanda Stohrer (8 runs since 15th December 2018 – all PBs). Very honourable mentions also to both Jens Walton (JM 11-14) with 22-57 and Claudia Terrell (JW 10) with 25-59. And, for family reasons (!), I must namecheck Andrew Myers, who smashed the 20-minute mark and lopped a chunk off his Killarney parkrun PB … Michael Burgess (VM 55-59), one of the Vegan Runner first timers, with 19-01 and 82.1%, was the only person to get over 80% on the ‘Age Cat’ thingy.

Last week’s cancellation meant we had no parkrun on Groundhog Day. But for a couple of people there might have been some feelings of déjà vu this week. Our first finisher, Andy Heather – with 18-01 - ran that exact time as first finisher on 23rd June last year. Centurion R Wood started her Northampton parkrunning in May 2016 with 30-04 … and, by design or accident, she was officially timed as 30-04 on Saturday! Well done everyone who took part. It was very cold and very windy, but as RD Alastair commented “… the runners all looked to be having fun” (!!?).

Northampton parkrun #353 only happened because of the 31 hi-vis hero volunteers. Please opt-in to the volunteer email if you'd like to join them and get involved!

Hopefully see you next week

#352 by Helen Rees

I’ve touristed to many places for parkrun, but this is the first time we’ve left the house at 6am to drive to the East Midlands to make it to the start line. We’re not completely unhinged though, I promise… we were visiting Northampton as part of a charity logistics mission, but it just so happened that I also needed a ‘North…’ parkrun to complete my Compass Challenge (a challenge where you can win an online ‘compass’ badge when you run parkrun events that have North, South, East and West in their titles), and I couldn’t NOT run a parkrun at all this weekend, as I’m trying to reach my 100th parkrun in my birthday month (May) so clearly this weekend’s journey was meant to be.

Just over a hundred miles and some good strong coffees later, we reached The Racecourse in plenty of time to get a coveted parking space, and I made my way across the park in the direction of some very smiley and welcoming hi-vis heroes, aka parkrun volunteers. Having met RD Matt, I was greeted enthusiastically by one of the marshals, Bryan, who just happens to know a friend of mine from home in Hampshire (our sons go to school together) and had noticed this friend-in-common connection as I had posted a comment in the event’s Facebook group during the week. Isn’t it an extraordinarily small world sometimes. But parkrun does that – it’s like extended family. Just brilliant. Obligatory selfie taken to send back to my friend to prove our small world coincidence, Bryan went off to take up his marshalling post in the far corner of the course, and the gathered runners (over 500 of us, Northampton is a popular and well-attended event) warmed up and made their way to the start. Lots of very friendly locals, words of encouragement, new acquaintances made and good friends sharing a Saturday morning together.

RD Matt briefed us all with the pre-parkrun announcements, and gave me a lovely shout-out for my touristing, Compass Challenge and this being my 25th volunteering duty (the product of which you’re reading right now…). He ended with “Thankyou for choosing us” before counting us down and sending us on our way of the 1-and-a-half-lap course. And that phrase stuck with me for the rest of the run. It reminded me of how parkrun has welcomed so many people, from all walks (or jogs, or runs) of life, of all ages and abilities, with dogs or children or buggies… all achieving great things, all taking part for the joy of taking part, at every level, up and down the country and around the world. Enjoying a common goal, completing 5k – at whatever speed or pace you can.

The Northampton course is great – all on tarmac paths, around the tree-lined park and relatively flat, except for a couple of inclines on the way around. There’s plenty of space for the 500+ runners to spread out and find a comfortable pace, and today there were pacer runners too, giving us a time to aim for, if we wished. I was happy to see the 30 minute pacer just ahead of me for most of the 5k (I will get sub-30 at some point this year, I promise…)

Lots of support from marshals and supporters around the course (thanks for the hi-fives, Bryan!) which is always a real boost, and at the end there were even more cheers of encouragement and support from volunteers and fellow runners alike. The

finish funnel is well-organised, with an orderly procession of finishers making their way to collect (and then scan) their finish tokens for the all-important results later.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Northampton; a very friendly, well-organised, well-supported parkrun with a lovely flat easily-navigable course. Thank you for the warm welcome and for reminding me of the value of the extended parkrun family. And to all the new runners starting their Saturday morning parkrun adventures at the moment, as well as the regulars – as Matt says – “Thank you for choosing us.”

I have been filming some of my recent parkruns on a GoPro, with timelapse footage, so that potential parkrun participants can see the various courses and terrains before they visit and get some idea of the variety of events. Here’s my GoPro timelapse from Northampton this morning: https://youtu.be/c_KJq4EN4EQ (and all the others I have uploaded are on the same playlist – do have a look).

This week 523 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 54 were first timers and 69 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 34 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 34 volunteers:

Alison POSTLETHWAITE • Mark Alan KENNEDY • Terry EGAN • Leigh BARKER • Bryan LEWIN • Helen REES • Gerald BILLIS • Michelle LEWIS • Trish LORIMER • Szabolcs MATE • Catriona DOYLE • Eric SYMONS • Vicky NICHOLAS • Matt BUSHELL • Craig RICHARDS • Sharon CONQUER • Lynett PILGRIM • Daniel GILLERT • Katherine MCFADIAN • David BUTLER • Elaine STARMER • Karen CLARK • Wayne CHALMERS • Paul ECCLES • Paul FRENCH • Julie FITZELL • Mark DEAN • Viv POOLE • Alfie STARMER • Joanne HAYMAN • Jamie CLARK • Chris BOHIN • Christine MCFADIAN • Tim LEAH

#351 by Lloyd Cross

Another Saturday, another fantastic parkrun, bring it up 351 events and counting at The Racecourse. The cold weather and the threat of ice wasn’t enough to deter 472 athletes, including 31 doing their first run here, of which 19 keen people were doing their first parkrun ever. We hope you enjoyed it and will still be doing it later in the year in kinder weather.

Despite my complaints, the cold weather obviously worked for a lot of you, a huge 61 athletes recorded a new personal best. This makes all my excuses about “conditions” a little harder to really commit to.

This week saw representatives of 30 different clubs take part, and visitors from across the country – including Fulham, Wimpole Estate, Woodley, Coventry and Linford Wood (yes that was me – had to name drop). I will certainly make a return after enjoying my visit and hope you will do the same!

What struck me on my first visit to Northampton first of all, was the sheer number of you! Coming from a parkrun that regularly gets under 200 participants it was great to see so many people, even better to see how well organized everything was, and even better still to experience the support everyone gave each other. The amount of cheer everyone gave as they jostled for position, and as they lapped each other later on was great.

Milestones this week for James Skinner on his 10th run, both Natasha Kington and Robyn Thorman on their 50th, and Jason Goss on his 100th. Unofficial kudos also go to Claire Dixon on her 150th.

This event was made possible by 29 hi-vis heroes, including our great photographer whose work is showcased on our Facebook page – see if you can spot yourself.

Thanks to: Alison POSTLETHWAITE • Ruksana WADE • Bryan LEWIN • Anne-Marie SANDOS • James CUSHING • Gerald BILLIS • Michelle LEWIS • Andy LACK • Szabolcs MATE • Kathryn HALL • Vicky NICHOLAS • Matt BUSHELL • Sharon LANTSBERY • Daniel GILLERT • David BUTLER • Lee BLENKINSOP • Jackie COOMBS • Lisa WHELAN • Sally FURNISS • Juliet SAVILL • Julia BRADNAM • Glen FURNISS • Julie FITZELL • Pieter JOHNSON • Lauren MERCER • Mark DEAN • Viv POOLE • Joanne HAYMAN • Laura WILLETTS

First male finisher was Zak Allen in a time of 17:56, a new pb! First female finisher was Francesca Elliott in a time of 23:20 on her first visit here. Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Northampton parkrun Results Page.

The male record is held by Andrew BADDELEY who recorded a time of 14:52 on 16th April 2016 (event number 207). The female record is held by Emily WAUGH who recorded a time of 17:14 on 8th July 2017 (event number 270).

The Age Grade course record is held by Angela COPSON who recorded 105.64% (20:24) on 25th April 2015 (event number 156).

Northampton parkrun started on 5th May 2012. Since then 13,249 participants have completed 115,694 parkruns covering a total distance of 578,470 km, including 20,977 new Personal Bests. A total of 1,112 individuals have volunteered 6,622 times.
