Lots of volunteers will be needed for this, in particular we're trying to get a parkrun team together to staff the RacePack distribution tent starting after parkrun ends. If you'd like to do this please register with BM volunteers and also mail prestonparkoffice@parkrun.com so that we can make sure you are with our team rather than being allocated elsewhere, BM won't necessarily know that this is the job you're going for unless you're on the list that we send in!

Marathon Talk are organising a Magic Mile event to get as many people as possible to run a mile between 24Aug and 8 Sept.

Local events are at Hove Park on 7th Sept at 10.15am and Lewes on 5 Sept at 7 pm.

The intention is for anyone to run 1 mile as fast as possible, for fun, just do it as fast as you can and  log it on line where it will be by some magical means converted to an age related percentage and an average to see if the boys or girls are best!?

Sign up and log you result on the Marathon Talk Website.

If you want to hear more, listen to the excellent Marathon Talk podcast with Martin Yelling and Tom Williams, they will do an update each week on events and in September the results.

On August 24th we are having a stall at PrestFest, the Friends of Preston Park’s summer party from 11 – 5 to publicise our parkrun.

I’ll be there all afternoon, if anyone could help for half an hour or an hour it would be appreciated to give me a break/ some back up; please mail prestonparkoffice@parkrun.com to ‘book’ your slot.

If you have a parkrun T shirt please wear it or otherwise any running related shirt.

Thanks

John

 

Sam Brighouse / Boston Remembrance run

Reposted from a Brighton group runs post by Marc Bonaldi -

To all my friends please share this page if you can as a favour to me

2 marathons – 2 tragedies – 2 days

On the 14th April at 11.45 Sam Harper Brighouse tragically collapsed and died after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest in Grand Avenue, Hove whilst running in the Brighton Marathon

On the 15th April at 2.50pm two bombs were set off killing three people and injuring over 170 more in the Boston Marathon.

What should have been one of the greatest achievements of their lives has left the running community stunned at the sad news of both tragedies. The marathons are a time for everyone to enjoy and to raise money for their chosen charities.

As a mark of respect and remembrance to Sam and all of those involved in the Boston Marathon it has been decided to get everyone to meet up

PLACE TO MEET
We will to meet on the Hove Lawns opposite Grand Avenue.

TIME
Meeting at 11.30am on Sunday April 28th.

At 11.45am we will hold a minutes silence after which we will do a gentle jog or walk of 2.6 miles to Black Rock and 2.6 miles back to Hove lawns.

This is not a race and this is open to everyone that would like to show their respects to come and join the running community.

Thank you for sharing this in advance.
