Rising Sun parkrun Event number 194 31st July 2021

So that was a bit different from the recent weeks, but yet again thanks to the amazing volunteers we managed to have a safe and fantastic if not slightly soaked Rising Sun parkrun.
It was awesome to see so many first timers and most of them were still smiling at the end, if not slightly wetter than when they started, but thats parkrun for you, as long as you keep smiling we'll keep cheering you on, till you cross that finishing line... So massive well done to all you first timers today.
There were also some great new PB's today, even in the rain so to all of you that managed a PB today, great work and well done.
It was also fantastic to see Jenny & Hannah from 5K Your Way, also starting back up today, they do some amazing work around our local area, so it was really great to see the ladies back running/walking with us this morning.
Last thing from me this weekend, is a plea that we must remember the rules about spitting, it's not a good thing and especially in the finish area.... Enough said!!
Have a fantastic rest of the weekend and the team will look forward to seeing you all next week hopefully in slightly better weather..... lol

Rising Sun parkrun Event number 193 24th July 2021

It was fantastic to welcome you all back to Rising Sun parkrun this morning. Our eagerly long awaited return seemed to go quite smoothly and for that we must start our restart run report today with a number of thank you’s.

Thank you to NTC and RS management for allowing parkrun to continue to use our beautiful country park each Saturday.

Thank you to all of our awesome volunteers, without whom we just could not operate. A special thank you to those who stepped out of their comfort zone and tried a new role. If you would like to volunteer just drop us an email at risingsun@parkrun.com.

Thank you to all who took part this morning for following the guidelines, for parking at our allocated car park at Asda and for showing courtesy to other park users, we had some great feedback from them.

Apologies that we are currently unable to give pre-run shout outs for milestone runs as we have to keep our pre run chat very brief. We can say a huge well done to Gregg Davy on his 50th run and to Karen Turner and Louise Fabian on their 100th runs, well done to you all, you’ve waited a while for them.

Well done to Ali Bailey, our first finisher on our restart run, your Mam was in the right volunteer role to proudly hand you that number 1 token.

And finally, a special welcome to the newest member of our core team, the adorable Oscar Thompson. Will and Sue are regular volunteers/guide runners with us here and it was a delight to finally meet Oscar this morning, he is so cute in his high vis bib!

Rising Sun parkrun Event number 192 14th March 2020

So it was a wee bit chilly and windy, but at least the rain held off, this morning up at the Rising Sun country park.
Well done to all our runners who came out to run around the park and to all our visitor and first timers we hope that you all had a great time running with us this morning.
Please can I remind all runners that if you go though the timers at the end of the run to please collect a position token and then go to the scanners, as this has a knock on effect with processing the results, also can you remember to drop your position token in the container so that we have them for the following week if anyone has position token 191 please return it or just drop it into the token box next week.
On a positive note we were lucky enough to receive another parkrun Golden Baton this morning, which we have already passed on to two visiting runners to carry it on its journey across the country next weekend......
Have a fantastic weekend and hopefully we will see you all next week.

Rising Sun parkrun Event number 190 29th February 2020

What a lovely morning to enjoy our beautiful Rising Sun Country Park - we are privileged to have access to such a beautiful setting for our course.

Well done to our 290 runners and 36 volunteers who took part in the first ever parkrun to be held on 29th February - if you missed it you just have 28 years to wait for the next one - lol

Special thanks to Gosforth Social Running Club for their volunteer takeover and to our Core Team Member Sue Walton on achieving 150 volunteer credits.

Unfortunately we have received 3 separate complaints this morning that all have to be investigated and reported on. As a result can we please remind you of the following:

** We do not have priority over other park users. They have just as much right to use the park as we do and they do so each and every day of the week. Verbal abuse will not be tolerated! The safety and comfort of ALL park users is more important than a person's PB!

** parkrunners are allowed to run with 1 dog on a short lead - the dog MUST be kept on the lead throughout the run.

** If running with a dog and the dog does it's business, be a responsible dog owner and clean it up, do not leave it for someone else to step in it.

** As explained every week in the pre run brief, children under 11 must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.

Next week is our International Women's Day event in partnership with TGCR and we'd love to celebrate with as many of you as possible so why not bring a friend.

Have a good week
