Tamar Trails parkrun,Event number 149, 7th September

Saturday was another beautiful day at the trails and this week, numbers post summer holidays dropped off a little bit but still 103 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers, and three were brand new to parkrun, we had a surprisingly high number of unknown athletes this week with 15 people forgetting the golden role of #dfyb.

We had 14 new Personal Bests today, congratulations to all of you, but a special mention goes to Allanah Welsh, who was the 13th to record a PB today and in doing so brought up the 3000th pb ran at the trails. I think I may get close to mine again when we near the 10,000 figure!

Representatives of 13 different clubs took part this week including first ever representatives of:

Malvern Joggers:         Suzie Lane

Perth Road Runners:     David Stokoe

I also spotted amongst our many visitors a lady sporting a running top from Sarum Sisters of Salisbury A club my niece ran with for a long time before moving out of the area, sorry I didn’t get chance to say hi and I hope you and all our other visitors enjoyed your visit.

Today we celebrated a 100 milestone. Congratulations to one of our regular runners Di Luckhurst who has run 89 of her 100 runs here at Tamar Trails. We have a number of our regular runners now up into the 90’s for total parkruns, so If I am allowed to use the other “R” word, the race is on to see who achieves the milestone next.

Our First finisher today was an unknown athlete, it’s actually the seventh time this has happened. Our First female finisher was Sharon Daw for the second time in her ten runs here, Sharon also recorded a pb for the fourth consecutive time here, well done Sharon great achievement.

The event was made possible by 19 volunteers but a special thank you to our RD who risked missing her sons football match to ensure todays run went ahead, hope you made it in time Sarah!!

Event number 148,31st August 2019

This week 124 people ran, jogged and walked the course and just before the start I had the pleasure of chatting to a tourist from Richmond, John, who was telling me his home course was a little flatter than ours and a good pb course, he was “looking forward” to the challenge of the hill and looking to take in another SW run the following Saturday. John it was a pleasure to meet you and chat about all things parkrun. I hope you enjoy the more” undulating” courses in our part of the country.

Today two of our ladies recorded their milestone 50th runs, not sure why it’s a milestone when it’s a 5k?  but kilometrestone definitely doesn’t sound right, but natural inquisitiveness aside, huge congratulations to Sally Copson Ball who has run all 50 of her parkruns here at the trails and also to Ann Williams who has run 46 of her 50 runs here.

For the second week running our first finishers shared the same surname, following (literally) in the footsteps of the aptly named Swifts of last week, a big well done to Dan Nash and Jenny Nash our first finishers today. Dan was a first timer and Jenny bagged herself a new PB to go with her second time as first finisher.

A few stats for those who like them!!

  • Highest age grading today was 82.84% by Jenny Nash
  • Highest number of runs completed was 248 by Ian Baggott
  • Best Represented age category was VM50-54 with 12
  • Best Represented club was Tamar Trail Runners

One last mention to Sam Angel a first timer here, for attempting to encourage me and a few others up the hill, alas despite his best efforts and coercion my PB gets ever older!! But great to see his enthusiasm and interaction with other runners.

17th August Event 147 Who’s faster than Ronnie?

Work and the M5 conspired to keep me away from the trails this week, fortunately I managed to divert off the M5 in time to attend Longrun Meadow in Taunton to get my weekly parkrun fix, thank you to the team there for rescuing a stranded parkrunner!! luckily this didn’t coincide with a rather important family parkrun milestone due next week or I could have been in a spot of bother. Longrun Meadow whilst an enjoyable friendly and well-run event, for me, any other parkrun no matter how good, just isn’t quite the same as the trails as we are lucky to run in such a beautiful setting. This week 110 lucky people ran, jogged and walked the course, including Esteban Perez from Spain and from slightly closer to home Ken Summers who recorded his 150th parkrun for a slightly “arbitrary” milestone. Well done Ken great achievement.

John Windemer and Christopher Matthews celebrated an official milestone run this week, both clocking up their 50th parkruns. Congratulations to both of you

This Saturday we had 27 were first timers and 6 people brand new to the parkrun family. Of our 110 runners 13 recorded new Personal Bests.  Well done to you all

Representatives of 17 different clubs took part including the first ever representative of Michelles running club & Chandlers ford community running group. Welcome to Jane Roach and Divya Jogai, hope you both enjoyed your visit, we also had ten representatives of Erme Valley Harriers who I suspect may have been supporting Ken on his 150th run.

This weeks first finishers were both from Erme Valley Harriers , congrats to Sam Swift and Jaine Swift. Our most experienced parkrunner this week was Andrew Trigg of… you guessed it… Erme Valley Harriers. The best age grading of the week went to Andrew Houghton of Tavistock ac with 75.05%

and finally in answer to the opening question, not me as  Ronnie as well as being pretty quick to a 147 has also recorded a 18.08 parkrun...   pretty impressive

The event was made possible by 17 volunteers: Kathryn WEAVER-GORE • Richard CHOROSZEWSKI • Roger HEWITT • Adrian BROWN • Joanne PAGE • Paul R WILLIAMS • Sandra COLLOBY • Mike COLLOBY • Ivor EARL • Jon COUPLAND • Nick DAVIES • Bridie KENT • Wendy WALTERS • Rodger KENT • Trevor PIPER • Charlotte CARVELL • Helena WOODBRIDGE-HARRIS
