Prudhoe Riverside parkrun #166 –  01/02/20

Well, it was the first day after the official Brexit exit and... we're still here, as were 187 of you that came to our rather blustery course this morning.

We welcomed visitors from Norwich that were up for the match this afternoon. Our Run Director for the day did quip that he hoped the run was the highlight of the day, but I'm sure he was just joking... perhaps. We also had one of our local running club's recent Couch to 5k graduates running as they were unable to make the graduation run last week.

At least 2 of you celebrated your 50th parkrun today which is an amazing achievement in itself, but there were also 24 first timers and 22 of you recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.

Without our volunteers this would not be possible, and today was brought to you by the following 24 legends:

Joanne LUCKING • Graham YATES • Richard WEYMES • Mel REED • Philip HINDMARSH • Jason BROOKER • Jane MORTON • Maria HINDMARSH • Paul RAFFERTY • Michael BOADEN • Joanna MITCHELL • Ben MITCHELL • Peter MCMULLON • Karen PLUNKETT • Helen BOADEN • Steven BRADY • Paul REVILL • John GREEN • Anne JONES • Victoria LANCASTER • Simon HEAL • Andrew ATKINSON • Joseph GREEN • Frances FEWSTER

Thank you for your support as always and don’t forget should you wish to join their ranks, please send a message with your barcode number to - prudhoeriversidehelpers@parkrun.com

 

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun #165 –  25/01/20

Great turn out I hear down at the riverside parkrun this morning, and although I wasn’t in attendance, I did think of you all as I was snoozing in my lovely warm bed and then I felt a pang of guilt as I had actually intended to run – a very rare thing indeed as I much prefer to volunteer, however my alarm failed to wake me up (oh dear).

However you lovely lot did turn up, all 193 of you who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

We had Prudhoe Plodders C25K group doing their graduation run today, well done you should all be very proud of yourselves, fantastic achievement, keep up the great work.

Molly Paige was celebrating her 8th birthday so a big happy birthday to you and also her 10th parkrun – well done Molly!

We welcomed Claire Jennings from Widnes Wasps running club and also a visitor from Hartlepool, we hope you enjoyed our course and hope to see you again.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are up to and see you all again down at the riverside next week…. well I won’t as I shall be getting lost in the hills on the Pendle Way in a day (I really need to learn to sit on my hand next time someone says who wants my place as I can’t go!)

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun #164 – 18/01/20

Today Prudhoe Riverside welcomed a takeover by Red Kite Runners, they officially get together on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm meeting at Swalwell Juniors Football Club so if you are local then pop along to see them.  It was lovely to have you all and hope that you enjoyed your morning with us.

It was a tad cold and our volunteers were soon doing the dance of the frozen volunteer around the cones in the funnel area – would make good morris dancers!

However the cold snap did not deter 185 of you who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part, we hope to see you all again soon.

We had a birthday boy this morning too and only his second parkrun, thankfully he remembered to stop running and hand his token in this time…….happy birthday Jason Seymour!

We also had a visitor from Wreake Runners in Thurmaston (Leicester) – We have ways of finding our visitors even when you don’t shout out when I ask if we have any guests, Gavin Speed – your surname didn’t let you down as you bagged yourself a nice PB too, well done!

I know I waffle on about ‘funnel duckers’ (I do have to pronounce that ever so carefully) however this morning you were all so well behaved and we had no incidents what so ever! Thank you so much, makes my life so much easier when processing the results.

I just love volunteering – I must do getting up earlier on a weekend than I do during the week! It’s worth it to see so many of you enjoying our parkrun, getting out there and just doing it, and all our lovely volunteers who brave the cold every weekend to make parkrun happen, we really couldn’t do it without you so thank you everyone.

Prudhoe Riverside parkrun #163 – 11/01/20

What a windy morning it was today down on the riverside! I laid awake in the early hours of the morning listening to the wind trying to rip my roof off and wondering how many trees I would have to remove from the course when I did the check, or at the very worst I may have to cancel.  To my surprise there was almost an element of calmness along the course route, only having to kick the odd branch out of the way with help from Jennifer, that was until we got half way along the back of the Spetchells and we were almost knocked off our feet with the wind, who knew it was hiding around the bend! That should wake you all up I thought, certainly did us!

We saw 194 of you this morning run, jog and walk around the course, 27 of you were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests (so maybe the wind had relented around the back of the spetchells). Representatives of 19 different clubs also took part, thank you all for visiting us and hope to see you all again soon.

Can I politely ask you if you are only going to do 1 lap of the course NOT to come through the finish funnel, this really makes processing the results a challenge! We don’t want to deter you from doing 1 lap or the sprint finish, however please do not go through the finish area, this also applies to people who have already completed their run and go back to cheer on their friends, just move to the side and let them finish triumphantly and you can meet them at the end of the funnel area.

We had a visitor today from Tring Running Club in Hertfordshire, we hope you enjoyed our course.

One of our volunteers also had a birthday today, STEVE BRADY – a big birthday shout out to you (see you thought I had forgotten!). You will have passed him doing his little dance routine at Haydn’s disco corner, our stalwart trio of merry men.

This week’s event was made possible by 19 volunteers
