Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 14th December 2019 Run Report

Team Chaos were reunited this morning, and...everything went really smoothly. Seriously, apart from the mild panic I had when I couldn’t find the mic for the PA system (Run Directors - please do NOT ‘hide’ the PA mic in the inside pocket of the carry-bag, some of us get flustered easier than others) and not being able to remember if the tourists we had were from Hertfordshire or Herefordshire (it was the latter, I think, pretty sure…) the whole morning flowed like a peaceful river.

The course had a little more debris than usual thanks to the wind, and there was a bit more clag around the back from the rain, but it was canny enough for ten new PB’s to be scored. We had eleven first timers, including our visitors from HEREFORDshire, and we hope you all had a cracking time and will come back and visit us again, you’re always welcome.

Of course, an event is only as successful as the people who help make it happen, so a HUGE shout out of thanks to my team this morning, and Happy Birthday to Timekeeper Howie, it just can’t happen without you lot:

Joanne LUCKING • Richard WEYMES • Jane MORTON • Paul RAFFERTY • Seamus KELLEHER • Oscar MITCHELL • Ben MITCHELL • Howard BUCKINGHAM • Steven BRADY • Lisa NAPIER • Haydn WEYMES • John GREEN • Sarah BECK • Marzena MARZEC • Simon ALLEN • Victoria LANCASTER • Simon HEAL • Sharon CARR • Gary MARTIN • Mark LANCASTER • Joseph GREEN

Want to see your name up there? Want to give something back to the parkrun community? Wonderful! Just check the roster here - https://www.parkrun.org.uk/prudhoeriverside/futureroster/ - and drop an email with your barcode number and prefered role to prudhoeriversidehelpders@parkrun.com. Nothing is too complicated and we’ll brief you on how everything works. You can also keep an eye on our facebook page and offer to volunteer there - https://www.facebook.com/prudhoeriversideparkrun/

Numbers still seem to be down a bit, and we get that Christmas is hurtling towards us, and the party season is in full swing, but you do not want to miss next week! Why? Well, it’s our Christmas special parkrun! Festive dress is heartily encouraged, hopefully there’ll be a plethora of Santas, Elves, Krampus, Yule Cats, and other seasonal costumes on the course. Uhm...I’ll probably not be there myself, as I’m a bit last minute with things this year. Who, knows, that might encourage you to turn up!

Right, that’s it for now, I’m going to get something to eat, give the flat a quick tidy, crack open a bottle of red, put A Muppets Christmas Carol on, and get the decorations up! Have a great weekend everyone! #dfybc

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 7th December 2019 Run Report

Warmer climes than last week were about this morning, but the season must have many of you in its thrall. It thankfully didn’t stop ninety five of you from joining in with our monthly pacer week. And pacing is NOT easy, I was 35 minute pacer this week, and the theory of running seven minute kilometers is MUCH easier than in practice!
Anyway, nine of you scored new PB’s, including fellow pacer Billy Maitland, who was desperately trying to swap his bib at the start and just cruised around in his usual laid back style. Six of you took on our course for the first time, and we hope you come back soon for another go.
Billy and I were joined by these other hi-viz heroes, and the event just couldn’t go ahead without them:

Joanne LUCKING • Graham YATES • Richard WEYMES • Mel REED • Paul RAFFERTY • Ben MITCHELL • Jean CALLENDER • Peter MCMULLON • Jo PAGE • Richard HESLOP • Haydn WEYMES • Janine CALKIN • Claire DAVIES • Joanne EDWARDS • Billy MAITLAND • Marzena MARZEC • Victoria LANCASTER • Simon HEAL • Paul TAIT • Pam RAFFERTY • Sharon CARR • Frances FEWSTER • Robin BERKLEY

Want to give something really special this Christmas? Then volunteer! It gives a nice warm feeling inside. Just check the roster here - https://www.parkrun.org.uk/prudhoeriverside/futureroster/ - and drop an email to prudhoeriverside@parkrun.com with your barcode number and role preference. Nothing is too difficult and full training is given. Plus, I’M Run Director next week, so you just know it’ll be fun! Seriously though, we really do rely on volunteers, parkrun just can’t happen without them, they’re even more important than the runners. I mean, we love them too, but...y’know…
I’m going to sign off before I dig myself an even bigger hole. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 30 November 2019 Run Report

We thought the weather might scupper our parkrun this Saturday, as events around the north east fell victim to the plummeting temperatures, but we hit lucky. Our 147 parkrunners were greeted by some very crisp leaves underfoot, and a beautiful sunny morning. Layers were definitely the order of the day!

Unfortunately we weren’t so lucky with our scanning files, as one of them corrupted, meaning we were unable to access the results from it. RD Paul has decided to correct the results manually, rather than giving everyone a 59:59 result. I’m sure everyone will want to thank Paul for giving up his time to do this.

So, if you ran this Saturday and had your barcode scanned, but haven’t had a result email/text and please email prudhoeriverside@parkrun.com with your approximate time, full name and barcode number. If you know your finish position, even better! The deadline to email in is 9pm Monday, so please get in touch before then if you want to be in this week’s results.

Of those of you who made the first cut of the results, 15 were first timers and 17 recorded new Personal Bests. Well done all! We also welcomed representatives of 18 different clubs, and visitors from Conwy, N Wales. Thanks for turning out on such a brisk morning!

This week we had four milestone runs – congratulations go to Claire Philips and Stephen Briscoe who completed their 100th, and Robert Emson and Gael Phillips who completed their 50th parkruns this week.

Finally, our thanks, as always, to our fantastic volunteers for standing out in freezing temperatures cheering everyone over the line:

Joanne LUCKING • Mel REED • Jane MORTON • Paul RAFFERTY • Lesley HINDMARSH • Danny GILHOLME • Paul ROBINSON • Tony BROWN • Richard HESLOP • Karen WARD • Jennifer BURN • Billy MAITLAND • Anne JONES • Simon ALLEN • Louise ALLEN • Simon HEAL • Gillian TAIT • Paul TAIT • Robin BERKLEY

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun 23 November 2019 Run Report

As today’s Run Director, I’m (unofficially) declaring this morning the muddiest Prudhoe Riverside parkrun since our records began. The puddles on the main path were more akin to water jumps, and made for a challenging 5k for the 69 of you who ran, jogged and walked the course this morning. Nine of you were first timers at Prudhoe Riverside, including two who woke up this morning, looked at the weather and thought ‘Perfect conditions for my first ever parkrun!’

We don’t usually mention the names of those who get a PB, as there are usually too many of you, but today is an exception. Most of you settled for getting round without falling over, so congratulations go to Louise Allen, the only person to improve on a previous time! I’m sure normal service will resume next Saturday, assuming it’s stopped raining by then...

The event was made possible by 18 fantastic, volunteers who were in fine voice, despite the conditions. Our thanks go to:

Joanne LUCKING • Lalage BROWN • Richard WEYMES • Alison HABEBI • Mel REED • Jane MORTON • Paul RAFFERTY • Katharine RUSSELL • Donna MAUGHAN • Helen BOADEN • Richard HESLOP • Janine CALKIN • Rachael TURNBULL • Nicola MACLEAN • Simon ALLEN • Simon HEAL • Sharon CARR • Robin BERKLEY

New Years Day at Prudhoe Riverside

It's that time of year again. We have declared our festive parkruns.

As usual we are having Christmas Day off, however we will be on, on New Years Day for the 4th consecutive year.

This year we have had a chat with our closest neighbours again at Blackhill and Hexham who are both holding their runs at 09:00 giving you plenty of time to get to Prudhoe Riverside parkrun for 10:30am if you fancy the double.

Holly would be grateful for any volunteers. Get in early with your requests to prudhoeriverside@parkrun.com
