The road to parkrun returning…

May be an image of food, tree, grass and nature

...so if you haven't seen the news, following the publication of the Government's roadmap for exiting lockdown for England, parkrun have also puplished their plans for restarting junior and 5k parkruns (for England only).  As with the Government plans, parkrun dates for restarting are dependent on a number of factors, however you can find the full annoucement (including those all important dates here).

As and when parkrun provide any updates we'll share them on here, as well as our facebook page, however you can also find updates on the parkrun UK website, along with parkrun UK facebook page.

That's it for now, however if you're after something parkrun related to keep you going until June, you always have (not)parkrun where you can register your 5k runs on the parkrun website (full details here), a couple of parkrun podcasts, including the official parkrun podcast free weekly timed, along with the independent with me now, plus there's also lots of video content to be found on the parkrun youtube page.

Be More Barrie! Barrie Howes Memorial Run 6 October 2020

Please see the following message from Sharon, who is organising a memorial run for her friend, and regular parkrunner and parkrun volunteer, Barrie Howes, who sadly died following an accident earlier this year:

Be More Barrie! Barrie Howes Memorial Run 6 October 2020
 
"I am organising this virtual run in memory of a good friend of many years, Barrie, who sadly lost his life in an accident in July of this year.
 
Barrie was such an inspirational person and so full of life, so it is very hard to think of him not being here anymore. He overcame major heart surgery and went on to raise thousands of pounds over the years for the British Heart Foundation by trekking to Everest Base Camp and Machu Picchu to name just a few places.
 
He loved all the training to get fit enough to take part in the treks and as part of that got into running. He was a regular at his local parkrun at Shorne Woods Country Park along with his wife, Claire and their Westie, George supporting him and became very involved with the parkrun from token sorting to running as a pacer helping others to achieve the best run they could.
 
That was Barrie all over, always wanting to help others and even in death by donating his liver and kidneys he gave to others and improved the life of three people.
 
He was always up for a challenge and loved life, so to ‘Be More Barrie!’ is the best tribute to him.
 
This virtual event is to run or walk 5km on or around 6th October, which would’ve been Barrie’s 58th birthday.
 
There is a minimum donation of £10 to enter. Please email smbenton7@gmail.com if you would like to enter. Proof of your run/walk to then be sent to me after 6 October and in return you will receive a lovely soft enamel pin badge to wear with pride and with all proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation in Barrie’s memory. If you have something red to wear while doing the run, please wear that and send me a selfie as I am looking to create a collage of everyone in red for the British Heart Foundation.
 
Thank you!
 
Sharon"

The following parkrunners achieved a (not)parkrun PB:

Sorcha Clark (twice!), John Christopher Collins, Leigh Donovan, Oliver Harden (twice!), Alison Chapman, John WIlliams, Lawrence Aspinall, Julie Aspinall, Susan Holland, Tracy Chapman, Donna Reekie (twice!), Richard Palmer, Peter Granger, Maggie Harris, Sally Callaghan, Tony Downs, Becky Baxter, Ian Connelly, Hilary Jones.

Congratulations to all of you!

Of those listed above, Donna Reekie, has now got three PBs in three weeks, while Leigh Donovan and Susan Holland join Donna on three in three as they achieved PBs in the previous two weeks!

SW2

If you're new to (not)parkrun, you can find out everything you need to know here .  However just to clarify this isn't a replacement for parkrun, doesn't count towards any parkrun run counts, but is a bit of fun to keep us distracted while we wait for parkrun's return.

Look forward to seeing who makes it onto week 6's (not)parkrun results table.

Cheers

So last week was the start of (not)parkrun, and there were 35 Shorne Woods parkrunners who completed 45 (not)parkruns! So far this week there have been 15 parkrunners completing a (not)parkrun, which includes 4 first time (not)parkrunners, as well as 4 who have a new (not)parkrun PB!

Look forward to seeing more of you join the (not)parkrun results over the next few days.
