Event #383

Stewart parkrun, Middlesbrough
Event number 383
7th December 2019

This week showed the true spirit of parkrun. As some of you may have seen I was in a bit of a panic midweek about the state of the roster. But in true parkrun form the volunteers came flooding forward and made the event possible. I was overwhelmed with offers of help this week, with people even turning up on the day to offer their assistance. So thank you to everyone who dragged themselves out of bed and sacrificed their own runs so that others could enjoy parkrun. You really are high-vis (if there you managed to grab a vest) heroes. On that note the lovely Sarah is at the helm next week so let her know if you are available.

It was also pacer week this week. It was great to see them flying past us at map of the world with a gaggle of followers trying to keep up. Thanks to the pacers and well done if you managed to nail your time. We had 30 PB's set today so please feel free to take the credit and feel smug knowing that you may have assisted someone in achieving their goal.

We had 14 first timers today. I hope you all enjoyed your first parkrun and that you will be back with us very soon. We had visitors from Durham, London and all the way from Albert Park too. We hope you enjoyed visiting our beautiful historic park.

A special shout out to Ron HARRIS today as he completed his 50th parkrun. Ron is one of two runners in the 80-84 years age group who completed the course today. I think you'll agree that Rons achievement is truly inspirational and deserves to be applauded.

This week 205 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

Event #377

Well done to all 137 of you who ran/swam in the rain this morning, (and missed the Rugby!), good effort.
Congratulations Brian Laverick achieving 250 parkruns, Sharon Husband getting that 200 and Sean O'Rourke reaching 50. Superb achievements :-)

I would like to dedicate this report to our volunteers this morning, who had to withstand the rain, so all 137 of you could participate. I have just about dried out lol

A few external issues occurred separately with cars and windows this morning, meaning a couple of volunteers that were down couldn't help. This is totally understandable and I would like to thank Alan Guy & Kerri Muldowney for offering their time and efforts still.

Our amazing pre-setup team of Kenny Salkeld, Alan Guy & Billy Sigsworth were drenched as I arrived at 8.20, thank you guys, brilliant as always.
On barcode scanning I had my two superb children (biased I know!) Jess & Jacob, Jacob is only 7 yet he loves barcode scanning and manages well, just a note to those who shy away from this and Dan Mooney, stepping in after he had ran.
Our solo timekeeper, Susanne Davison, no pressure there Susanne lol who as she does each week did a sterling job, even with frozen fingers.
We had Isabelle Blackburn, doing her Duke of Edinburgh and handing out tokens for the first time today, another junior showing the seniors how it is done. She is even attempting backup timer next week!
Out on the course, in the heavy rain, supporting all the runners we had: Eddie Meehan, Phil Cawood, John Fearns, Sarah Davies, Linda & Billy Sigsworth, Ian & Susan Watson, Mike Peel, Kenny Salkeld and Alan McGarrity, with Richard Oliver having the task of tail walker, each one of them collecting the equipment for us. Thank you guys, especially in the conditions this morning, making it safe for us to go ahead. A vital part of parkrun, regardless of the weather.

You all help make what was a stressful start to my Saturday morning, end up good. Without you all, we wouldn't have the ability for Stewart parkrun to go ahead.
I'm now off to watch the Boro match, Why o Why?? Wish me luck :-)

See you next week,
Sam

7th September 2019

Hi everyone. Another great morning at Stewart Park. It certainly felt Autumnal so an even bigger thank you to the Marshals this week - especially those who were standing in the shade. A special shout out for the Sunday Lovelies - a bunch of ever diminishing ladies who volunteer on mass once a month. You're all awesome.

We had plenty of First Timers this morning including Joe SHUTT (Brother of Stewart parkrun regular Catherine). We also had visitors from Tees Barrage, Cambridge, Ashford and Shipley. We also had some serious parkrun tourists from Roundhay in Leeds. Nice to meet you all and we hope you enjoyed our event.

We also celebrated some unofficial milestones with Nico MOUISSIE completing his 200th run and Nicola PEARSON smashing run number 400. Amazing achievements. It was also lovely to see Emma FERGUSON celebrating her fundraising achievement of raising £475 for Running Down Dementia. A great achievement for an amazing cause. Also good luck to Emma's Sister-in-Law
Kayleigh from Manchester who will be completing a half marathon soon. Boosh!!

Ruth is at the helm next week so please let her know if you are able to help out. Good luck to all our runners doing events over the weekend. There is lots happening including the Great Tees 10K and of course the GNR. The very best of luck to everyone and please come back to Stewart parkrun fit and healthy next week.

Event #365

Stewart parkrun, Middlesbrough
Event number 365
3rd August 2019

Well after a few months not being at Stewart parkrun, I thought I'd gently introduce myself back into Run Director duties. The week leading up to the event had gone well with plenty of volunteers (big shout out to the Sunday Lovelies for their takeover). The run started brilliantly with plenty of smiling faces. Then as some of you may have seen a couple of our runners had a tumble, possibly due to the warm weather. Thankfully no serious injuries were sustained. What was noticeable though was how the parkrun spirit shone through in times of adversity. People rushed to help and also assist the volunteers with re-directing the runners. To all of those who showed their concern and supported those in distress - thank you. That truly is what parkrun is all about.

Saturday was also a momentous day for one of our core volunteers Alan GUY. After a full nights sleep Alan decided to use the smartphone app to assist with timekeeping. He did a sterling job despite all of the activity on the finish line. We have a smartphone app to use for timekeeping and scanning so if anyone fancies trying it out, download it and come and join the team.

As I said we had a full team of volunteers and also several pacers helping the runners achieve their goals. Thanks to all who helped out. We really couldn't put on the event without you. Ruth is back at the helm on Saturday so if you are able to assist please let us know.

We had plenty of visitors this week from far afield (and Tees Barrage), some of whom gave us great feedback about the event. We also had Cathryn RAMSDEN visiting our parkrun prior to her bridesmaid duties at a local wedding. We are so glad you managed to fit a parkrun in before the wedding Cathryn and hope the day went well.

One final mention goes to a regular junior parkrunner Ruby DONNELLY who managed to break the 30 minute barrier on Saturday. This was not only a significant running milestone but her Dad has promised to buy her a pair of Airpods if she achieved this. Well Sean the whole world knows about this now so get your hands in your pockets!!

This week 314 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 33 were first timers and 38 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 32 volunteers:

Barry MOODY • Alan GUY • Louise ARCHER • Mike KNOX • Kenny SALKELD • Catherine BOULT • Kenny DAWSON • Jon TAPPER • Michael MCCANN • Jacquie Ann KELLY • Fred FORTH • John FEARNS • Susanne DAVISON • Harry Alexandar FRYETT • Ruth MCMASTER LEES • Mark WATERS • Julian PINKNEY • Molly TAPPER • Alison TAPPER • Sharon HUSBAND • Kirsty CATTERSON • Sharon MCLOUGHLIN • Dan MOONEY • Diane UMPLEBY • Lisa DEVISON • Mike UMPLEBY • Teresa MURPHY • Catherine SHUTT • Mike STANLEY • Rachel SMITH • Lucy RICHARDSON • Sarah GOSWAMI

Event#364

Good afternoon, Stewart parkrunners.

I was mightily glad that the rain held off until the run was finished today! A massive thank you to all of the volunteers who turned out to make our event happen, many with umbrellas in hand "just in case." Even if the heavens had opened mid run, none of them would have abandoned their posts. A big thank you also to Michelle Shaw who stepped in to take over the volunteer coordinator role when she found out that I was having a very challenging week last week. And no, I haven't finished for the summer yet, thank you to those who asked. I am still in charge of 30 highly excited children until 3:15pm on Tuesday - wish me luck!

268 runners completed our parkrun this morning. We had a number of visitors from various places including New Zealand - I hope the Captain Cook connection provides a talking point back home! On a personal note, it was lovely to see Stuart McLay, a friend from primary school days, who has lived in various places overseas for many years but runs our parkrun when visiting Middlesbrough and follows our progress from afar. Another noteworthy event made me smile today - Sebastian Shaw completed his first ever 5k parkrun, accompanied by proud dad and regular parkrunner Andy. Not to be outdone, little sister Emilia completed around half of the course with her mum, RD and results processing legend Michelle. The photos on FB speak for themselves - well done!

Celebrating milestones today were Emily Green, who completed her 50th run and is now entitled to the prized red T-shirt, and David Turner who won't get a T-shirt for completing 200 runs but did receive a well deserved round of applause. I also noticed from the results that Fiona Rowling completed 200 runs today and Malcolm Kilner clocked up 300. I didn't know about these achievements in advance. Not everyone wants a shout out but if you are approaching a milestone and would like an acknowledgement of it please let us know in advance.

I had a lovely chat with Shelly Broadbent and Paul Christon this morning. Paul has been fundraising for two excellent causes, Mind and Macmillan. If you would like to find out more, please visit Just Giving to read Paul's story. Good luck to both Paul and Shelly in the coming weeks - hope to see you very soon at Stewart parkrun.

Congratulations to everyone who achieved a PB today, including Jacob Smethurst, who might have shaved off a few more seconds if he hadn't paused to give me a high five at the end of his first lap - thanks Jacob. Connor Sharp also finished his last Stewart parkrun for a while on a PB. Good luck in your new career, Connor.

Please remember, we are cancelled next week because the annual Cleveland Show will be taking place in the park. Hope to see you again in August.

Ruth

 

Event #363

Afternoon everyone - thanks for coming down today and taking part in our run.

Special thanks to you all for being patient whilst we got things going. The people raising awareness of blood stem cell donations were very pleased with how much interest and support was generated! If you didn't get time to partake this morning, we are informed that you can do it via website.

'Famous' folk in the announcements included our very own Alan Guy (551 volunteer stints across parkrun this morning) - Alan's part of our core team and we really appreciate his support every Saturday morning. Also clocking up milestones today were Toby Burley and Sean Donnelly, both joining the 50 club and Sarah Roe and David Gale who have now reached 100 runs. I can also see from the results that we had a Junior 10 - Joseph West and the unofficial milestones were Geoff Brown (150) and Phil Nicholls (200) - well done all of you!

You will have noticed the fairground in the park this morning, you all appear to have passed safely - thanks to Colin and Michael for taking control down on the back path and making sure no one was injured and thanks to the rest of our weekly heroes Sue BRADLEY, Robyn CAIRNEY, Susanne DAVISON, Fred FORTH, Emma FOXLEY, Alan GUY, Andy HUDSON, Keith HURST, Michael MCCANN, Ruth MCMASTER LEES, Eddie MEEHAN, Rob POYNTER, Lucy RICHARDSON, Frances ROUNDTREE, Clay ROUNDTREE, Kenny SALKELD, Michael SAVAGE, Colin SAVAGE, Michelle SHAW, Sebastian SHAW, Andrew SHAW, Andrew SIMPSON, Karen STRICKLAND, Roma TATE, Mark WARDMAN

Whatever you're doing for the remainder of the weekend, have a good one and we will see you all next week!

27th April 2019

Well here it is - the hotly anticipated Run Report. This week I wanted to focus on the small group of volunteers who get to the park extra early to set up the event. The runners will notice the signs and tape marking out the course and the finish area as they run, but all this is down to a small team of helpers who come week in week out to make sure the course looks good, is safe and easy to navigate. Whether its dark winter mornings, driving rain, snow or bright sunshine, the team are there every Saturday morning to set up. So next time you come to run Stewart parkrun please take notice of all the markers and acknowledge those that get out of bed a little earlier than others. Our core team includes Kenny, Alan, Fred and Roger. This week Andrew HARRIS and Lucy TAPPER were also setting up. So thanks guys - you're the best!!

I'd also like to thank all of our volunteers who are named below and made todays event happen. We really couldn't do it without you - you're all legends!! Its honestly great fun to be part of the support team so if anyone fancies trying their hand at one of the tasks let me know and we will add you to the roster for coming

As you may have noticed, there was more lycra than usual on display at Stewart parkrun this morning. That wasn't because of an 80's revival (although if you ask me lycra never went out of fashion) but it was the Destination Boro annual Superhero run. We saw several Batmen and BatGirls, Mario and Luigi and Spiderman to mention a few. I even saw Wonderdog (Catherine SHUTT)!! There were also cakes on sale with lots of cash raised for two great local charities - Zoes Place and Hope for holly. So thanks to all those who turned out and the many who donated to a great cause.

We had a canny few milestones to celebrate too. Junior runner Aiden COLMER celebrated his 10th parkrun with Claire HARTILL, Courtnay PEARSON, Francesca WHISKER Hannah JUKES and Jack McGARRITY running their 50th's. Michaela DOWNING smashed her 100th parkrun having started in 2012, fellow Run Director and thoroughly decent chap David JUKES did his 200th with Kenny DAWSON reaching the amazing 250 milestone. Well done to all and thanks for the cake!!

It was also our gorgeous Event Directors birthday today. Ruth will be in Harrogate sipping Gin and Tonics as I write this, having a thoroughly deserved break and pamper. Ruth (and the other ED who wont be named) work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure the event runs smoothly each week. One of their tasks is selecting, training and mentoring Run Directors so clearly they have their work cut out. Its a massive commitment and responsibility so thank you and enjoy your day. Back on the tools next week Ruth so enjoy the rest while it lasts.

It was also Kerri Muldowney and Lucy Bytheway's birthdays today. Both are massive supporters of Stewart parkrun with Lucy in particular there each week cheering all the runners on - Happy Birthday.

We had lots of first time parkrunners today and several regular parkrunners visiting our event for the first time. It was lovely to welcome runners from Northallerton, Albert Park, Finsbury Park and Bromley. We had some really nice feedback about our event. I hope you all enjoyed it and we hope to see you again soon.

Just a quick reminder that we are on next week and the 11th May 2019, but due to the BBC Big Weekend event there will be no Stewart parkrun on 18th and 25th May 2019 and 1st June 2019. Its a great opportunity to experience the other fab parkruns in the Teesside area but you all better come back on Saturday 8th June 2019 or there will be trouble :).

Finally I'd like to wish all those running tomorrow the very best of luck. A special shout out to those doing the London Marathon including Linda Sigsworth, Bill Sigsworth, Carolyn Gale, Trish Speedie, Sally Mendoza, Liz Swainston and Michael Burke. If I have missed you out apologies but best of luck. Enjoy the event and feel free to come and show off your medals and t-shirt and feel generally smug next week.

Event #354

Happy Easter everyone, hope you have had a day of eating chocolate and enjoying the glorious sunshine.

Thank you to our volunteers yesterday, it really does help as Run Director when there is a strong team backing you. The amazing team this week were Alan GUY • Joanna GLAZEBROOK • David CHARLESWORTH • Michelle SHAW • Sam SMETHURST • Paul SMETHURST • Andrew SHAW • Kenny SALKELD • Jon TAPPER • Mark POULTNEY • Fred FORTH • John FEARNS • Carole WELBURN • Carolyn GALE • Ruth MCMASTER LEES • Linda MCGARRITY • Roma TATE • Julian SPOOR • Jenny STANDEN • Ian WATSON • Sebastian SHAW • Lucy RICHARDSON.
Jon is in charge next week and tbh needs all the help he can get ;-) so if you are free to volunteer please drop us an email at stewart@parkrun.com. Thank you.

We celebrated one of youngster RD's 13th birthday this week, Lucy Tapper. Lucy was amazing as RD the other week and is always on hand when we need her. Happy Birthday Lucy, hope you have had a wonderful week. Another youngster I would like to mention is Sebastian Shaw. Sebastian is not 5 until mid May, yet he has got the volunteer bug already. His favourite job is token sorting and tidying the cones away after the run. He also gets Mum and Dad (Michelle & Andy) to the park on time now, they were regular latecomers! Both youngsters and the many others we have who help us at Stewart parkrun are absolute stars x

Welcome to all our first timers yesterday and visitors. We had 39 first timers and people visiting us from Blanford, Peterborough, Milton Keynes, Banbury, Tunbridge Wells, Durham, Walthamstow, Gunnersbury, Salisbury and sister parkrun Albert park. Hope you all enjoyed yourselves and visitors again soon. .

Well done to all 48 of you who achieved pb's and to Lipika Mondal gaining her 50th parkrun and Nicola Burns on her 150th parkrun. Keep up the fab work.

Onto a moan now I am afraid :-( parkrun rules state the following:
It is not permitted to participate with a pushchair and a dog at the same time. https://wiki.parkrun.com/index.php/Dogs_Policy The back paths are very tight at the park so to ensure all participants are safe we need to follow this guideline.
Also, Children under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice at all times https://wiki.parkrun.com/index.php/Children_at_parkrun This is a safeguarding issue and must be followed.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Please remember we are cancelled May 18th, 25th and June 1st due to the BBC's Big Weekend. Due to set up, the actual event and then close the week after. Take the time to do some parkrun tourism, but please come back to us the 8th June.

Enjoy your Bank Holiday Monday and I will see you all next week.

Event #353

Stewart parkrun, Middlesbrough
Event number 353
13th April 2019

Afternoon everyone. Well the park looked beautiful in the sunshine this morning but by the end of the event our marshals were shivering in the cold wind. When the conditions are harsh the marshals really come into their own - thanks to all of them. On the subject of marshals Mark POULTNEY was celebrating a 25 Volunteer Milestone. Its a great achievement and hopefully will be an inspiration for others to help out from time to time.

Firstly let me apologise to all those who had a panic on this morning when their names didn't feature in the results. I could go into the technicalities of what went wrong - but in short I made a cock up. Thankfully our joint Event Director Sam noticed my faux pas (the other one is off gallivanting in Paris) and assisted in rectifying them. Hopefully everyone now is in the results - if there are any outstanding issues please let me know. And don't worry Sam will take great pleasure in reminding me of my mistake for many weeks to come.

We had some visitors today from Northallerton, Catterick, Warrington, Plymouth, Cheltenham and Newark. We hope you enjoyed our 'South Middlesbrough' parkrun. The Milestones also came thick and fast this week with Junior parkrunners Alex HALLAM, Miles DAWSON and Harriet DAWSON celebrating their 10th runs. Ryan KARUNASEKERA completed his 50th and David CHARLESWORTH enjoyed his 100th run today. Sophie BENNISON did 150, Julie LOWRY and Michael CHUNG hit 200 and Tracy SMITH completed her 350th. Well done all.

Just a quick safety reminder to everyone. We do go through the parkrun rules at the beginning of each event but today we noticed that runners under the age of 11 were not accompanied by an adult. This is a safety issue and really puts the event team in a difficult position. We understand that adults want to run too and children might not want you to cramp their style but future breaches will result in unaccompanied junior runners being removed from the results. Thank you - rant over.

To all of you who are running at Hartlepool, York, Sheffield or anywhere else tomorrow - good luck and enjoy. See you all next week to do it all over again. Oh and don't forget if you're free to help out let us know - Sam's at the helm next week.

This week 367 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 28 were first timers and 64 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.
