Rising Sun parkrun Event Number 200 11th September 2021

What a beautiful morning to celebrate our 200th run, it was lovely to see so many of you join us whether that be as a park runner, a volunteer or a spectator. Thank you to the many visitors who took the time to tell us how friendly our volunteers are, we know that we have the best volunteers and it makes us very proud, but it is nice to hear it from visitors to our fabulous parkrun. If you would like to volunteer, drop us a message at risingsun@parkrun.com
This morning we welcomed 60 first timers with us and 36 of our park runners bagged themselves a PB. Congratulations to Michael McAuley and Andy Duguid on their 100th parkrun and Karen Hulme on her 350th parkrun, great achievement guys.
Well done to Philippa Lilly who received a tub of celebrations chocolates for being our 200th runner. Philippa ran today pushing her beautiful daughter Robin in her buggy. It’s a double celebration for them as today just happens to be Robin’s 1st birthday. Happy Birthday Robin, we hope that you all have a great day celebrating.
Good luck to those of you doing the Great North Run tomorrow, we look forward to seeing all of the t-shirts next week.
Have a great week and we’ll see you next Saturday

Rising Sun parkrun Event number 198 28th August 2021

So it was a fantastic morning again up at the Rising Sun country park and it was great seeing all you're smiling faces as the sun was finally out this morning too..... (just for a change...lol)
Congratulations to Janice Charlton on achieving her 100th parkrun today a little while longer than planned lol but its there now.....
Thanks again to all our amazing volunteers, whom without we wouldn't be able to operate every week. So it's a massive thank you to them for all their time that they give every week to enable us to run safely.
Lastly from me, can we please remind everyone that if you use the car park in ASDA, to please please use the footpath up to the visitors centre, and not walk along the road as its just not wide enough for cars and runner alike.
Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday and we hope to see you all next weekend.

Rising Sun parkrun 196 14 August 2021.

Good afternoon parkrunners. Thank you for your patience - the results weren't straightforward this week.
What a glorious morning - the sun came out and stayed out.
328 people ran, 'jeffed' or walked their way around our beautiful route. 48 of them achieved PB's. Well done.
We also had 55 first timers to Rising Sun, lots of tourists and 22 of the first timers, were newbies to parkrun. It was a pleasure to welcome you all.
Unfortunately we are unable to do the various shout outs in the pre run briefing that we did pre covid. The briefing has to kept to under two minutes as part of the risk assessment. We can though shout about them in this summary.
Congratulations to Leanne Whitley, Ian Plant and Andrew Heide who all completed their 50th parkrun. And a HUGE shout out to the phenomenal Reg Checkley, who completed his 300th parkrun today. Awesome.
Lastly, thank you to the amazing volunteers - parkrun cannot run without volunteers. If everyone volunteered once per every 15 parkruns, we would be overwhelmed with helpers. It's good to give back!!
We are looking forward to welcoming you back again sometime soon.
We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen: Elizabeth BAKER, Michael BELL, Abbie BOXSHALL, Mark BOXSHALL, Donna BROGAN, Cathryn CLARK, Claire DADSWELL, Michael DAY, Chris GIBBS, Sean HODGSON, Lyndsey LEITCH, Matthew LEITCH, Alison LENNOX, Stephanie MCCORMACK, Joanne MCENTEE, Donna MCEWAN, David MILLIGAN, Vera O'HAGAN, Emily PARKER, Niki PARKER, Mark PEARSON, Judith PLANT, Michael SALISBURY, Sue THOMPSON, Will THOMPSON, Craig USHER, Rachel WAITE

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.
