IF YOU HAVE FINISH TOKEN 102 PLEASE EMAIL OR PM US

Welcome and well done to all 27 first timers today including two ladies who nordic walked! Clearly a day for PB's with 26 of you achieving one. Special note to Val who equalled hers last week and then cracked it this week, also our C25K graduates who are continuing to improve with a number of PBs today.

We welcomed several parkrun tourists including those from Eden/Llanhydrock, Exmouth, Reading & Wokingham. Some benefiting from camping overnight (SW Lakes Trust site) on the finish line! Hope you enjoyed the course and then refreshments afterwards in the Froghopper cafe.

Belated congrats to Jason Price who did his 100th run last week and Luke G who was on 101 today! I also missed Zachary Slade last week on his 10th.

Many thanks to the 9 volunteers Hayley JOLLOW • Andree CARTER • Jeremy JOLLOW • Stephen CARTER • Andrew GEEN • Simon DOWNING • Graham KEAT • Emma ISHERWOOD • David BATES who made it all possible.

Event number 232,16th March 2019

Phew! what a windy day for a parkrun. Serious wind resistance training on some sections, so all participants did extremely well to a) turn up

b) get round in the 50mph gusts!

A strong gust of wind lifted the box with the personal barcodes off  the table and into the brambles - hopefully all were collected and many thanks to Alan and Ellen for sorting them out. Please check just in case your went missing.

Even in today's conditions there were a number of PBs and a word of consolation for Val who actually equalled her PB despite the conditions- next week Val!! Well done also to the people who graduated from their C25K last week and ran on their own this time. parkrun is addictive I'm afraid.  We had a number of parkrun tourists who didn't get to see Tamar Lakes at its best but we hope to welcome you back again soon! Waves and white horses on the lake are not the norm.  Apparently even the safety boat had broken its moorings and will have to be rescued! At least it wasn't raining.

The event was made possible by 10 wind resistant heroic volunteers: Stuart SHARP • Michelle SHARP • Rachael POMEROY • Stephanie COOK • Tracy DONNELLY • Tasha REEVES • Phillip NORTH • Ellen HALL • Alan MAYNARD • Andree CARTER. Thanks to them all, parkrun would not exist without you.

Happy New Year to all our runners and walkers. What a fabulous morning - dry at last, minimal wind and even a scrap of blue in the sky!! We had a record turn out (as did Bideford & Barnstaple parkrun's today) with lots of people visiting us from across the country, Bristol (first finisher), Harrow (first Lady), Southampton, and locals from Tamar Trails, Seaton and many more, even Canada. Congratulations to those who did the double - Bideford at 09.00 and Tamar Lakes at 10.30ish (toilet queue to blame!) Thankfully everyone arrived in good time and safely.

This week 215 people (207 was our previous record) went round the course, of whom 73 were first timers and 22 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 29 different clubs took part.

Thank you for all your kind comments too, we know we are very lucky to have a one lap, scenic course and look forward to welcoming visitors back again in the future. parkrun is not possible without the brilliant team of today's volunteers so many thanks to them Belinda WALKER • Robert WALKER • Pauline GEEN • Rowan DURRANT • Anita RAYER • Jane BUNNING • Carl KEENAN • Debbie STOKES • Dylan RUDLING • Graham KEAT • Phillip • Andree CARTER.

Event number 218, 15th December 2018

Despite the lure of Christmas shopping, a fantastic 71 runners/walkers turned up on yet another cold, grey, windy, miserable morning! Thankfully the heavy rain held off until the very end.

We had 9 first timers and some parkrun tourists from Barrow running club, nr Loughborough and 10 people recorded new Personal Bests - well done! Lovely to see some of you back with your dogs again. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

A big thank you to the volunteers who braced themselves against the weather Paul BUNNING • Stephen CARTER • Alan LITTLEJOHNS • Clare LAKE • Lesley TAYLOR • Paul KINSMAN • Jane WALTER • Adam LOVEJOY • William • Andree CARTER.  We only need a finish token volunteer for 22 December (Christmas fancy dress please!) but all positions are available 29 December and several 1 January 2019. Please email in to volunteer - tamarlakeshelps@parkrun.com
