Penrose parkrun #218 – 18th May 2019

After a slightly damp start it turned out to be perfect parkrun weather this morning.  We had 231 runners with a handful of first timers and visitors from Leeds, Sheffield & Barnstaple amongst others, with the furthest travelled coming from Ireland.

There were a couple of milestone runs today with Richard Scoppie & Suzanne Williams both completing their 50th parkruns, well done to both of you.

Numpty of the day has to go to Diane Warren, our regular Run Director who turned up to volunteer today without even being on the roster.  She was a welcome addition though and we then sent her straight off to Plymouth wishing her all good luck for the Half Marathon tomorrow.

All that remains is to say well done to Chloe who almost correctly guessed the number of finishers today and a bit thank you to all today's volunteers who were Diane P, Diane W, Jo, Craig, Oliver, Chloe, Rik, Amelia, James, Jane, Max, Stacey, Marie, MIck, Katie & Jess.

See you all again soon. All today's stats are below.

Penrose parkrun #216 4th May 2019 Star wars day !!

For the first time at Penrose, our event fell on May the forth which meant only one thing, Star wars day!! Star wars fancy dress was the order of the day. The lovely sunshine brought out over 300 runners including visitors from Norfolk, Thailand and even Jacinta Scanlon from Canning river park run, Perth, Australia !
It was my first time as run director but my fabulous band of volenteers made the whole event run like clockwork and with the guidance of event director Yvonne Turner, I survived to tell the tail.

The first unassisted runner home was Jon Barnes who was running his first ever park run and he completed the course in 17:32 !

Thank you to everyone who took part and everyone who helped. I hope you all had fun !!

Penrose parkrun #215 – 27th April 2019

After a cold hailstorm before the start today it turned out ok in the end with a lot of first timers and a smattering of tourists making up the numbers.  We had visitors from Crawley, Manchester, Sheffield, Lancashire, Berkshire & the defunct Little Stoke amongst others.

Craig was shadowing me today before his first attempt at Run Director next week, please be kind to him and follow all the parkrun rules to the letter.  Please don't go through the finish funnel more than once and Under 11s, please stay with your adult runner.  As long as he doesn't pick up any of my bad habits he'll be fine, I'm sure Yvonne will see to that!!!

Here are the stats.  I'll see you again in a couple of weeks.

Penrose parkrun, Event number 214

What a glorious Easter Saturday at Penrose parkrun today.  The course was stunning as the carpet of bluebells have blossomed and the sun was shining through the trees which obviously boosted parkrunners as the first 5 across the line recorded personal bests with many more PB's to follow during the rest of the morning.

We had a whole host of local runners plus visitors from far and wide; across the border (Tavy and Ivybridge I believe), Kent, Leeds, Cheshire, Newcastle and Peterborough to name a few.  There were bunny ears a plenty and thanks to our parkrun volunteers we were lucky to have had a visit from the Easter Bunny with some sweet treats after.

Our regular 'guess the total of parkrunners' comp was won by today's co-RD Jess...who was one out with a guess of 356.  Well done Jess on a great job as run director AND winning this too!  Good work bunny!

Heres your stats, cheers and gone
