Event Report No: 24 – 06.08.2022 By Shireen Walker

I was back in my home county of Yorkshire for the weekend, staying in Routh. I’ve done all of the parkruns around my hometown of Hull, and the lovely Sewerby, so when I realised I could get to North Yorkshire Water Park within an hour and complete my compass challenge (one parkrun containing each point of the compass; Eastleigh, Southampton and Beverley Westwood being my others) there was only one place to go.

NYWP already had all my favourite ingredients; it’s easy to find, has lots of free parking, not one but two cafes and friendly volunteers. Tony, who led the first timers’ greeting split his talk into two; firstly an explanation of the route for the 72 tourists and then continuing with an explanation of how parkrun works for the 18 first timers (welcome to parkrun!) This is a great idea, especially as nearly 50% of the 194 people who walked, jogged and ran today were new to NYWP.

The route itself is two clockwise laps on gravelly paths of the large water sports lake. A simple enough route, although Tony told us that some people do try to go through the car park on their second lap.

After the last few weeks of sweaty running in 23C+ temperatures down south (my home run is Rushmoor in Hampshire), this morning’s 13C start was a surprise and a real pleasure. Although it got warmer after we started, there was plenty of cool shade in the wooded areas. I spoke to a few runners on the way around and ran most of the course with Rachel McCracken from Newcastle and her little dog Ollie. I’d driven past her and her partner running earlier, after spotting her 250 t-shirt (a real achievement as she works most Saturdays) she told me they were training for Berlin – best of luck!

First-timers Gareth Cooke from Barnsley AC and Hannah Mainprize of Scarborough AC were the First Finishers. Thirty-three people got new PBs, including another Scarborough AC runner, Mark Colling, who also had the highest age grade (82.4%). Well done to you all.

There were no new t-shirt runs this week, but Ali Raw and Sharon Reason both ran their ice-cream (99th) parkrun – good luck with that 100th! The most experienced parkrunners today were South Leeds Lakers tourists John and Joanna Cassells on 430 and 428 parkruns respectively, they have also volunteered over 200 times each.

I’d heard good things about NYWP and it didn’t disappoint, I could easily come back and spend a day there. The main café is great, but my tip, if it’s super busy and you only want a coffee and a snack is to head to the Snack Shack by the Climbing Wall and Zipline at the other lake (at the other side of the first car park) which appears to specialise in waffles. By writing this report I also completed the volunteer tourist challenge (volunteer at 10 different parkrun locations). parkrun couldn’t happen without volunteers and there are lots of volunteer roles you can fill and still do run. Thanks go to this week’s high-viz heroes

A big shoutout to Lynda Welch from Slimming World in Cayton & Seamer, not only has she completed her 2nd parkrun she also encouraged one of her members, Brenda Simpson to give it a go. She has completed her first parkrun. Hopefully we will see more Slimming World members joining our community. Remember parkrun is just a run, it is a jog or a walk.

When I woke up this morning at 6am it looked like it was going to be a cloudy humid day, how wrong one can be. Again, the sun was shining, and there was very little breeze. Not ideal conditions for the runners’, not too bad for the walkers. Hopefully they all enjoyed the event.

This week 164 people walked, jogged and ran, the two laps of North Yorkshire Water Park, of whom 65 were First Timers, 4 completed their first ever parkrun and 24 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives from over 25 different clubs took part. It is great to see that there are quite a few participants who have started parkruns in the last few months and have now made it part of their Saturday morning routine. Well done to each one of you that took part!

Congratulations to Robin Clark and Kathryn Evans on completing his 25th parkrun, welcome to the 25 Club. I did notice that Christopher Phillips will be completing 100th parkrun next week. Hopefully he will be celebrating that milestone with us.

A special mention to First Timers at a parkrun; Caden & Ethan Jones, George Harrison, Monica Francis. We must mention a group of participants from the Drighlington Dynamos Running Club, who travelled here today from Leeds.

This was the #20 North Yorkshire Water Park parkrun, and it was a hot one! We had intermittent sunshine with a slight (but very much welcomed) breeze. A glorious start to a summer weekend in July.
