Event #201, 23 March 2019

Well what a difference a week makes! It was a beautiful spring morning at Figgate park a complete contrast to last weekend! Here's hoping we have seen the last of the wintery weather and its blue skies and sunshine from here on in!

This week 329 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 28 were first timers and 60 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 34 different clubs took part.

Volunteering at parkrun is a great way to give something back, meet new people and of course have fun. Each role is super easy and you will receive a full briefing before the start.

Our roster is looking a little on the empty side in the coming weeks, if you are able to help please email in with your barcode number to portobello@parkrun.com

Please note that Saturday 27th April is a junior takeover week, where the volunteer roles will be filled by our amazing under 18's.

Today's event was made possible by 21 volunteers:

Scott BALFOUR • Michael Stewart FULLERTON • Tracy-Ann AITON • Robert MAIN • Ciaron FORREST • Clare LEGGE • Laura PRENTICE • Wendy MALKIN • Lisa DRYBURGH • Ross J NICOL • Fiona NICOL • Laura PLUMB • Douglas FORRESTER • Dawn LAWSON • Claire Cakes MATHIESON • Margaret MALCOLM • Walter CARLTON • Dawn-Marie MERCER • Andrew STEWART PALENZUELA • Fraser MAY • David MILNE

The news that made me happy today was getting all our finish tokens back! Thank you!

The things that made me grumpy today were people entering the funnel after only completing two laps and then trying to funnel duck.
Please only enter the funnel if you have completed the full three laps and if you have entered the funnel by mistake please stay in until you have reached the end as both these things create issues for the Run Director when doing the results.

We also had an incident of someone urinating in the park again today. This is completely unacceptable and wont be tolerated at Portobello parkrun. If you are caught your time will be removed from the results.
Toilets are available at Aldi and Morrisons. Details of which can be found on our website.

Congratulations to Grant Bulloch who completed his 50th run today. Well done!

Event #199, 09 March 2019: In Memory of Liz Lynas

parkrun was always more than just a run in the park to Liz. She finished her first parkrun at Portobello on 30 April 2016 and her 100th at Porty on 1 December 2018. She touristed at Edinburgh, Livingston, Hay Lodge, Haga (Sweden), Ormeau, Vogrie, Strathclyde, Lochore Meadows, Dunfermline, Southwark (informally twinned with Porty and affectionately known as 'Southobello'!), St Andrews, Hasenheide (Germany) and Falkirk, rating each on their welcome to walkers and whether the toast was any good in the cafe. Liz loved toast! She also received a prize at Porty's second birthday for taking a massive chunk of time off her PB and last year for volunteering - she volunteered at parkrun or junior parkrun on 58 separate occasions.

Liz was also an excellent parkrun recruiter. She recruited lots of people who are now regulars at Porty, and I know on Saturday there were lots more first timers there only because they knew Liz - 64 of you had never done Porty before and we hope to see you again.

Volunteering
parkrun is only possible because of volunteers. This week's high-vis heroes were: Angela NICHOLSON • Angus CHANDLER • Christine CARLTON • Ciara WEBB • Clare LEGGE • Dan PERREGAUX • David LIMMER • David MILNE • Dawn-Marie MERCER • Elaine BERRI • Emma LOUGHEED • Fiona EADES • Fiona MCLAREN • Helen RALSTON • Ian A SMITH • Ian HALL • John CURREN • Katy SMILLIE • Lorraine SYME-SMITH • Michael GRANT • Rachel BISSET • Robert MAIN • Ross DOUGLAS • Samantha PATERSON

If you can help on a future week, please email portobello@parkrun.com with your barcode number. All the roles are straightforward and we will explain everything on the day.

Spring Planting
Please avoid trampling the bulbs that are beginning to shoot leaves near the finish area. There are signs asking you to avoid that area. We noted that folk are locking bikes to the fence which is fine, just walk along the fence line and the bulbs will be fine.

We've also had a request from the Friends of Figgate Park to avoid leaving jackets near the saplings in the 'Fruity Corner' (where the concrete planters are). There's a picture on our social media of this today.

Finally, use your parkrun to make connections with people. That's what Liz did. We have quite an incredible community of runners, joggers, walkers, and volunteers at Porty and we all have one thing in common - getting out and moving around for the benefit of each other on a Saturday morning. #loveparkrun, Liz did. We hope you are now at peace our wonderful friend.

 

Event #198, 2 March 2019: A Trimendous morning!

Spring seems to have almost sprung and we might (keep everything crossed!) have made it through our first winter without a weather related cancellations. Given that this time last year we were snowed up with the beast fae the east it was positively balmy running conditions this Saturday.

Most of this week's volunteers were from Hartree Jets triathlon squad. Thankfully everyone stayed out of the pond and the bikes remained locked to the fence! If you'd like to find out more about them they have a website http://www.jetstri.co.uk

Congratulations to David Gibson and Margaret Malcolm who joined the 50 runs club and Graeme Maley who ran his 100th. Run Director Ross Nicol put in a pre-wedding run before marrying fellow Porty parkrunner Fiona Bennie who was walked down the aisle by nephew David Gibson fresh from his 50th run. Congratulations to Ross and Fiona, it was a great day to be a part of!

This week we welcomed 57 first timers to Porty parkrun of which 15 were completely new to parkrun and others were visiting from parkruns including Brighton, Bangor, Dublin, Perth, Livingston and even as far afield as Edinburgh!

The observant among you will have noticed that we have moved the position of our barcode scanners so they are now on the right as you exit the finish funnel. This is because the area on the other side of the path has bulbs coming up and signs asking park users to keep off it.  Please avoid walking across the area, especially if you're locking your bike to the fence. On Saturday I noticed there was a tendency for the scanning queue to follow on from the finish funnel queue during "peak times". It doesn't matter what order we scan you in so please make 4 lines and ensure the end of the finish funnel can flow freely.

Next Saturday, 9th March, will be Liz Lynas' memorial parkrun. This was planned by Liz and whilst I'm sure the tissues may be required, it will ultimately be a celebration of her love of parkrun and in her words her "happy place".  If you have a milestone top please wear it as Liz worked so hard to get to her 100th run, or if you aren't there yet the parkrun apricot tops or something nice and bright would be great.  A number of people have asked about a collection for Liz and as we are not allowed to collect or handle cash at parkrun, a justgiving site has been set up to raise funds for Marie Curie who cared for Liz in her final few weeks https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/liz-lynas

This week 402 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 57 were first timers and 74 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 41 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 21 volunteers:

Joel ENOCH • Simon BARBER • Andrew SIMPSON • Siobhan SELLAR • Duncan BIRSE • Scott FINDLAY • Emma LOUGHEED • David TWEEDIE • Craig GOLDIE • Jennifer MCKENNA • Jennie SIMPSON • Rachel FAGAN • Sarah LAUCKNER • Shona BATHGATE • Isaac SIMPSON • Catherine DAVIDSON • Craig DALE • Rachel WARREN • Alice LOUDON • Ruben VILLALAIN • Jo PHILLIPS

Event #197, 23 February 2019

It was another dry, spring morning for parkrun. We had a few milestones to celebrate; Robin and Nicola Lockey and Will Pare all ran their 50th runs yesterday. Well done to all of them, and a very big thank you to Nicola and Robin for the post-run cakes and biscuits.

 

Very late on Friday evening, the Portobello team heard the sad news that one of our regular parkrunners, Liz Lynas, had passed away after a long illness. It seemed somehow right that it should happen when we’d have an opportunity to come together the very next morning. On behalf of myself and the core team, thank you to everyone who offered hugs, or condolences. It was very welcome yesterday.

 

There are other people at our event who know Liz better than me. And I know some of you reading this may not have known her. It’s amazing to me now to think that I only know Liz at all thanks to parkrun. I knew her a little from Portobello already, and when we were starting up Inverleith junior parkrun, Liz was one of a number of members of the Edinburgh and Portobello parkrun communities who committed to volunteering regularly to help us get the event established. It remains one of my all-time most rewarding parkrun moments to see Liz walk our Inverleith event with her son, Aidan, in April 2017. Aidan has a registered disability and parkrun HQ helped us record the result even though Aidan was older than the usual age limit.

 

For me, a lot of what makes parkrun so special is about connections. The connections between parkrun events, like the ones above that helped us get Inverleith started. People connecting with their families, and our friends - what Liz referred to as her parkrun family. Connecting with our local parks and greenspaces. Connecting with ourselves, our efforts to strive to do better than we have before, or reach the next milestone. Another parkrun moment we won’t forget easily was when Liz reached her 100 milestone, something she’d really pushed herself through her health issues to achieve. And yes, often, let’s be honest, connecting ourselves with coffee and cake after the event…. And Liz’s café banter was better than most.

 

Liz referred to parkrun as her happy place. It provided an opportunity each week to leave other stuff behind and enjoy coming together and connecting in all these ways. This is so much of what makes us human, and Liz did it with a smile on her face. Thank you Liz, for everything you brought to our parkrun family, we’re so lucky you were one of ours. There’ll be many times in the future when we’ll hear a laugh, or a smile will come to our face, and we’ll be reminded of you.

 

Thank you to all our volunteers, and all our runners for making Portobello parkrun the happy place it is. See you again next week.

 

This week 401 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 59 were first timers and 72 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 43 different clubs took part.

Today was a great parkrun, I was very happy to see that all tokens came back to us, thank you! What was pleasing was the stopwatch matched up with the tokens too.  A successful parkrun ran by volunteers who done amazing today, Thank you for all your hard work today. Thanks to - Lorraine SYME-SMITH • Ian A SMITH • Kathryn WESLEY • Andrew SIMPSON • Wendy MCFARLANE • Robert MAIN • Ciaron FORREST • Gary John O'NEILL • Holly MCCLUSKEY • Lisa DRYBURGH • John CURREN • Ross J NICOL • Nicola FIELDING • Ian THOMAS • Sarah LAUCKNER • Jane GARDNER • Mike TUCKER • Naomi SIMPSON • Siobhan GORRIE • Claire Cakes MATHIESON • Anne MOAR • Luca BASSO • Fraser MAY • David MILNE

Porty is a special event to many, and like I say on my pre run briefs "the highlight of our weeks" (to many) so it’s so important that we respect each other, no matter what our abilities, to ensure we have a great time.  An issue was brought to my attention regarding people shouting as they lap other parkrunners.  The rules of parkrun is very simple, we turn up, enjoy our morning run / jog / walk.  Listening to the Run Director is very important regarding the "run brief"  one part of the brief than has never changed since event number one, "Keep to the left of the path"  This is for health and safety reasons.  If you are at the front of the run, and are lapping a be respectful and a "keep left" prompt is acceptable if said clearly and respectively.  If we all keep to these rules, their shouldn't be an issue at all.

Toilets - There are none in the park, and it is unacceptable to urinate in the park, this is mentioned on a regular basis on social media and every week on either pre run briefs or first timers briefs.  Please if you see anyone doing this,  report this to the Run Director, we can deal with issues on the spot; offenders will be removed from the results if caught.

The last two paragraphs are not what I call a highlight of the week, these issues are so easily fixed if people would just play by the rules.  Earlier I called it "the perfect parkrun" unfortunately it wasn't so perfect, but it was close.

MILESTONE - SCOTT STABLES - 50 PARKRUNS!  Well done Scott!

I wish you all a happy week, see you next Saturday.

Ross.

Event #194, 2 February 2019

It was touch and go whether we would run this morning or not, but having been round the park twice and had a good chat about it we decided to go for it. Thanks to everyone who came along this morning, welcome to everyone who was at Porty or at parkrun for the first time, and massive kudos to our volunteers!

Event #193, 26 January 2019

Portobello parkrun, Edinburgh
Event number 193
26th January 2019

After a cold week over most of Scotland Friday came in with some mild weather. We organised this so everyone was more comfortable running in warmer conditions (you’re welcome!). 426 people ran, jogged and walked the Portobello parkrun, of whom 59 were first timers,  and 51 recorded new Personal Bests.

Speaking to some visiting parkrunners this morning, it’s becoming very clear the parkrun craze is bigger than ever, with most parkruns recording higher than normal attendances.  To the first timers over this month of January it been great to see everyone make positive changes to their lives; a lot of new year resolution diets may be out the window by now, but the active lifestyle of parkrun certainly is proving to be too good to give up.  We have a growing network of parkruns in the Edinburgh area, With us (Porty) Cramond, Vogrie, Meadowmill, Livingston, and soon to be Dunbar all offering you your parkrun fix! parkrun tourism is brilliant fun! Why not have a day out for a change of experience, it will keep you motivated, and keep the parkrun experience fresh.

Couple of Health and Safety points were brought to my attention. In the run brief we ask that any dogs running with you on the day is kept on a short leash, one dog per runner. Dogs should be kept to heel.

When leaving the park, if you are leaving via the parkrun course route, especially under the bridge area, please be cautious / courteous of the other parkrunners still completing parkrun.

If you are carrying a child you must walk, not run. Check the online guidance for more information.

Special thanks to Lorraine Syme Smith for knitting new barcode scanner jackets! They are very much appreciated, they look very smart too!

Event #192, 19 January 2019

Portobello parkrun, Edinburgh
Event number 192
19th January 2019

Well done to all our finishers this week and many thanks to our volunteers on what was a much milder morning than I expected following all the weather warnings!

During the week, we received not one but two new stopwatches through the post. The first is a straight replacement for the watch that broke two weeks ago causing Emma to have to manually enter the times. The second is a shiny new larger capacity stopwatch that can take nearly 2000 times. We used both today (because we had two timekeepers), and it was a good job we did, as I've still not managed to get the times off the larger capacity one. I'll be practicing later today in time for next week!

We also received a new 4th barcode scanner due to the increased number of finishers at recent events, but were unable to charge it before the run today. It will be in action from next week. Thanks to Keith for using the phone app instead, which worked a treat! Does anyone fancy knitting the new barcode scanner a little jumper to match the others? When they get cold they can be tempremental.

Today, due to the increased number of participants over previous weeks, we tried a new, longer funnel that curved to the right of where the normal one used to end. It was a good job we did as on two occasions during the morning, it filled to capacity. I'd like to thank everyone for heeding the funnel managers' advice by bunching up and staying in order. Thanks also to all the extra funnel managers!

We had a funnel ducker again today. Please can I remind you that if you enter the funnel, you MUST stay in the funnel until the end, and stay in order. If you don't, it makes processing the results much harder as the wrong click on the watch will be associated with people around or behind you. If you don't have a barcode with you, please still continue along the funnel to the end and return the token you are given to one of the blue buckets or a volunteer in high viz.

As you reach the end of the funnel, please hold your palm out so that the finish token volunteers can give you your finish token efficiently.

Please do not stop in the funnel to stop your watch, etc. as you cause a bottleneck for those finishing behind you. We want to avoid people having to queue across the line as their time will be artificially inflated!

Congratulations to Katie Dunlop on her 50th run and thank you for the treats at the end. Congratulations also to regular volunteer Ciaron Forrest, who joined the v25 club today.

All the tokens were returned this morning. Many thanks. If you'd like to help us with token sorting after the event, please come along to the cafe with us one week and we'll show you what to do.

A set of house keys was handed to me this morning. These were found at the Baileyfield Road entrance to the park during the Parkrun. They have been handed into Portobello Police Station on the High Street.
Thank you for not parking under the bridge or blocking the park entrance.
