Penrose parkrun Event # 243 16th November 2019

Well it was a fairly wet and damp day and we stayed off the field as it is still so boggy. Despite that, the turnout was pretty reasonable. We had two runners, Jo Davis and Susan Evans, who both ran their 100th parkrun. Well done to both. It was also the Birthday of Susan Evan's son, William Evans. He also ran.

Penrose parkrun – Event number 241 26th October 2019

This week were lucky enough to have a run report from visiting Seaton parkrun Event Director Carol.

As event director back in Seaton it is a real treat to get the opportunity to do some parkrun tourism. Arriving in pouring rain and high winds I wondered if anyone would be aim the car park, especially as there was some other sporting event on this morning! But I should never doubt parkrunners and especially hardy, dedicated parkrun volunteers. I was welcomed immediately by the team who had already been busy setting up.

An impressive 125 parkrunners completed the out and back course in the torrid conditions including ghosts, skeletons, mummies and pumpkins in honour of Halloween. Visitors came from Devon, Fulham, Kingston, Oxfordshire and, taking the prize for the furthest distance by a very long way, Australia.

The young RD, Jess, gave all of us tourists a lovely welcome as well as just the one first timer. Hopefully she will still get the parkrun bug and be back for more next week. We were then off running into the driving rain alongside the river but, even in the rain, it was very picturesque with the splendid autumnal trees along the route.

Recovering from injury I jogged along at the back with my dog chatting  to some of the other parkrunners. Meanwhile up at the front the first to finish was Benjamin Noad from Highgate in a PB of 16:52. He also topped the age grade table. First female finisher was Ruby Orchard celebrating her 50th parkrun in some style and finishing in 18:43.

The 14 high vis volunteers deserve massive praise for cheering us all on as well as doing all the set up and clear up in constant rain. Big thanks too for the spooky oranges and chocolates at the finish. A real treat.
