Penrose parkrun #260 7th March 2020

Today was International Women's Day at parkrun and Penrose was fully manned by a wonderful team of ladies. Not only just our normal volunteering positions, but as it was the first Saturday in the month we had a whole team of lady pacers led by the legend that is Emma Stepto with the 18 minute pacer vest. Emma was followed by Kirsty Medlock pacing 25 minutes, Becky Hughes pacing 27 minutes, Jan Watson pacing 30 minutes, Morwenna Bennett pacing 32 minutes, Stacey Hocking pacing 35 minutes and the wonderful Jane Pett complete with buggy pacing 37 minutes. Thank you to the  rest of amazing volunteers, it's people just like you who make parkrun happen.

Thanks to Active Cornwall we had some lovely pink pedometers to give away, if you didn't have one and want one I have 15 left over, just ask for yours next week

Penrose parkrun#258 – 22nd February 2020

After a horrible drizzly start while I was putting out the signs, things brightened up a bit for the runners and it was almost perfect running conditions in the end, in fact the first two men home both  did PB's today.  We had a smattering of first timers and several tourists today.

We had Alan Jones completing his 250th parkrun today, well done to Alan.  We also had Adam Williams and Alistair Miller completing their 50th, both running PB's in the process and our Tail Walker today, Matt Johns, completing his 50th too.

Unfortunately we suffered a technical problem and lost all the results from one of the barcode scanners.  This resulted in a few emails and detective work to fill in a few of the blanks, hopefully everyone has got their times in and correct by now.

A big thank you to all today's volunteers, especially Charlie Johns, one of our youngest ever Tail Walkers, completing his first parkrun today!!  All today's stats are below.  See you again in a couple of weeks.

Penrose Cancellation 15th February 2020

Hi all you lovely parkrunners. I'm really sorry but with the weather warnings and gusts forecast at 70mph, it's just too dangerous to run through Penrose on Saturday. Craig and I don't take this decision lightly, we don't want to disappoint anyone but a falling branch from 30 feet up, driven by that wind is seriously going to ruin someone's weekend. The most important thing is that we take care and are all fit to parkrun another day.

 

Penrose parkrun #257 8th February 2020

Penrose parkrun number 257
8th February 2020

This morning was the calm before Storm Ciara as the sun shone on the 309 people who ran, jogged and walked the Penrose course today. A special shout out to Helen Webb who celebrated her 50th parkrun – well done Helen and welcome to the red t shirt club!

Slightly less calm were myself and Kate Leyshon,  who were shadowing the Penrose Run Director role, in preparation for launching a new event at Penryn later this year. We came along with other members of our core team – Rod, Jeremy and Andrew.

Despite having volunteered at various parkruns over 30 times, I am amazed at how much is involved in being a Run Director. Don’t let that calm exterior fool you – there is a lot of multi-tasking and troubleshooting going on under the surface. Thank you to Craig and Di, joint event directors at Penrose, for taking us under your wings and showing us how things are done. We are now fledgling experts in everything from funnel duckers to results processing.

Kate did the first timers’ briefing and we had 51 today, along with some tourists. We also saw 52 personal bests so the sunshine obviously had a motivational effect. We had representatives of 21 different clubs taking part.

Today’s event was made possible, as always, by our great volunteers:

Carol Ann GRANT • Alan JONES • Lyn JONES • Jeremy BOOKER • Stephen LOWE • Timothea CARDELL • Diane WARREN • Catherine , LEYSHON • Craig TONKIN • Deborah PEARCE • Oliver TONKIN • Rod ALLDAY • Karen PARKER • Rik KERSLAKE • Beverly BRIAN • Lisa ROTHERY • Karen CROY • Andrew PYE

The Penryn team will be back in April to do a complete ‘takeover’ at Penrose and finish our training. So if you could remember to bring your barcode, listen to the briefing, stay in the finish funnel and not walk off with one of the finish tokens, you will help keep us calm and happy! See you all again soon.

International Womens Day

Parkrun research tells us that women are much less likely to participate in parkrun, and we are taking steps to change that. As part of these efforts parkrun are organising a global female-focused parkrun celebration on Saturday 7 March 2020, the day before International Women’s Day.

In England this will support the This Girl Can campaign created by our partner Sport England.

Penrose are joining parkruns worldwide in a celebration of female participation on this day. We will be

  • Encouraging existing parkrunners to bring along a female friend, family member or a work colleague, especially one who has never been to parkrun before
  • Sharing out plans with local organisations, including the media
  • Encouraging everyone to dress in purple (our chosen colour for the day)
  • Fillingl your volunteer roster with as many women and girls as possible
  • Mentioning the day in the pre-event briefing, and encourage everyone to do a big cheer
  • Takeing lots of photos celebrating female participation, using the special IWD parkrun selfie frames and hashtag #IWDparkrun

We hope you will be able to come and join us !!

Penrose parkrun #255 – 25th January 2020

After a soggy start today was perfect running weather as 303 people tackled Penrose parkrun.  There were a few first timers and a few tourists today with James Johns earning his 50 parkrun t-shirt and Rosie Kelly her 10th.  Well done to everyone who ran today.

Thanks go to today's volunteers, especially Derrick Frantz who stepped into the fray at the last minute. And well done to the timers and finish token volunteers for coping with a couple of 'twice through the funnel' dramas.  A reminder to everyone, please never go through our finish funnel more than once, it causes a minor headache and is so easily avoidable!!

See you all in a couple of weeks.  Today's stats are below.

Penrose parkrun 11th January 2020

The organisers of the soon to be Penryn parkrun came to join us today to see how its all done and so we had an abundance of volunteers today. Just as well as 271 people who took part came in thick and fast ! We don't know who won because the lady who was first home choose not to scan her barcode but it was nice to see a lady winner !

We had 17 first timers to penrose including Andrew Patterson, Martyn Prouse and Verity Bridger.

Unfortunately the cafe is closed for a month so we headed up to Sainsbury's to process the results and our delegation from Penryn learnt all about the joys of token sorting !

Thank-you to everyone who helped ! It couldn't happen without you!!
