Event number 408 – 14th March 2020

Redcar parkrun
Event number 408
14th March 2020

Hello, its now time for your run report from a tourist from Hull for EVENT 408 14th March 2020.

The following people are the most important, because without them the 151 people would not have taken part in Redcar parkrun.

Neil ALLISON Doug ARBON John BUCKTON Elaine BUNTING Brian CHINNOCK Paul CLEASBY Sarah COATES Kay DANIELS Amanda DEWSE Christine DIXON Ronald FLETCHER Lesley GIBSON David GINGELL Stewart HART Stephen MADDISON Joan MARSAY Pippa MIDDLEMAS Phil MILES Bob ONEILL Justin SHAW Simon SMITH Echo TREWHITT John WALSHAW Ian WELCH Graham SMITH Tony COATES Connor VARLEY

Now for a few stats.

The total no of volunteer duties carried out by the above 2,980. 151 Runners, 27 Volunteers is a ratio of 1 Volunteer per 6.29 Runners.

Brian CHINNOCK - 156 runs at Redcar out of a total of 205 parkruns has completed an amazing total of 507 total volunteer roles including 19 different roles with a staggering 329 Pre-event Setups and 62 as Run Director.

This week first across the post was Tom DANBY in a time of 16:42, Paul is a member of New Marske Harriers AC and has run 48 out of his total of 81 runs at Redcar.

Tom was followed by Isaac MYER in a PB time of 18:05, James NEWTON followed 83 seconds behind in 19:28.

We have to go to finish token 5 to Molly SHAW to find the first female from Lonely Goat RC in a time of 19:53. Dawn SULLEY was the second female in a time of 21:45. In 21st place came Louise DANBY, in a time of 22:53.

The main stats are as follows: -

151 Runners

85 Males

64 Female

2 Unknowns

29 PB’s obtained

6 Visitors

Milestone runs Andrew Kirkham (200) Douglas Wilson (200) Leanne Brayfield (150)

Upcoming milestones Jennifer Lowery (49) and Catherine Tawse (48)

Now to Highlight just 3 of the people who took part.

Most runs Complete was Eddie MEEHAN with a total of 545 with 7 done a Redcar, Eddie has run at 21 different parkruns as far afield as Singapore and has the V25 shirt with a total of 42 total volunteer roles.

Diane HALL a regular at Redcar completing 298 out of her 361 here, also amassing a total of 51 different parkruns all in the UK and has the V25 shirt with a total of 191 total volunteer roles.

Position Token 100 take us to Michelle Dale who normally runs at Darlington South Park, she has completed 8 different parkruns this year and is now entitled to join the Tourist Group and wear the Cow Cowl, and has the V25 shirt with a total of 33 total volunteer roles.

In the first 50 of today runners only 11 of them have the coveted V25 T-shirt. So, remember the names at the top and ask anyone of the them how to volunteer and what is involved, like setting the course out, First Timers briefing, sitting down after the event in the Bowls club with a cuppa and sorting out the tokens, somebody has to do it so that they are already for next week.

As a first timer to you lovely park where the parkrun takes place with quite a few twists and turns. The course is very well marshalled, unfortunately there was a considerably amount of chit-chat going on whilst the important RD briefing was being carried out. There is loads of parking, at the adjacent College.

If you see somebody struggling ask them if they are alright, and offer them encouragement.

Slight rant over with the main message is VOLUNTEER at some time and give the VOLUNTEERS a chance to run

A932592

Will definitely pop in again when UP North and see the park in all its glory with the flowers out.

As you have all heard by now we are having to cancel parkrun for the next two weeks, don't worry we will be back as soon as we can.

Take care

Mandy, Nat and Brian.

Event number 407
7th March 2020

What a fantastic turn out for International Women's Day, there was a wave of purples and pinks floating around the park. 49% of the runners were women. A huge thank you goes to Redcar Sisters Running group who did a fantastic take over this weekend, I wonder who will do the next take over? It was great to see the pacer event take place again and we are hoping to start doing this on a more regular basis now we have our new pacer bibs.

Congratulations Erik Petterson on 300th parkrun and congratulations from us all to you and Vicky celebrating your 30th wedding anniversary. Clive Thornton also ran his 200th parkrun along with Kelly Brearly on her 50th.

Just recently we have been having runners take home the tokens given out at the end, so please make sure you don't take it home. It does cause us problems in the timing department and also only cross the finish just the once PLEASE!

The corona virus is becoming wide spread now and in certain countries, the parkrun HQ  have made decision to cancel certain events due to the high volume of people taking part. We've been informed that they are closely monitoring the situation in the UK and will let us know if events may have to be cancelled. Let's hope not and remember to get those hands washed.

Anyway its nearly the weekend so we will see you you all Saturday bye, for now, the Admin

29th February 2020

Yet another Saturday where we dodged a storm with Gorge arriving on Saturday afternoon so although it was a cold one we missed the worst of the weather.

Countdown has begun to #IWD and our first purple pacer event we coincidentally is also the chosen colour for #IWD so we'd love to see lots of you sporting purple if possible (who's got a volunteering shirt?) The Sister's R Doing It are doing a parkrun takeover in celebration of the event and we have the following people pacing:

23 - Matthew Proudman
25 - Andy Richardson
28 - Tracy Atkinson
30 - Marie Christie
32 - Nikki Meeks
35- Andrea Sparkles
38- Julie Gill
40 - Kelly Brierley
45 - Adrienne Woods

Still need a 20 minute pacer

Continuing the women theme Milestones this week are all noughty with Emma LLOYD completing her 100th, Lisa CHAPMAN completing no 200 and Helen TYREMAN running number 300 well done ladies.

Now Bri loves his stats and he's been looking at the split between women and men and this week we had 78 women to 100 men with an 71/81 split the week before and 91/48 on the 14th Feb and 80/68 on the 8th Feb so come on girls #thisgirlcan let's turn those tables this week and March into the new month in full force. #IWD and #Thisgirlcan supported by Sport England is all about bringing along your girlfriend, aunt, niece, if fact any girl, lady, women you know who maybe wants to join in but for whatever reason hasn't yet to let them see what a fabulous bunch we all are down at Locke Park and #parkrun and with a selfie frame to capture their morning and CAKES what's not to love. I can't promise sunshine but I can promise a warm welcome to all

Like to thank Dave Playforth and Sheila for visiting us on Saturday, helping with pre-event set up and donating for cakes this Saturday.
