Awards picture

Our anniversary is fast approaching, after our very first run on 9th June 2012 when we had 171 runners, we will soon be celebrating our 8th anniversary. In that time we have had another 410 events and in total 15,881 different barcodes have been scanned recording a total of 165,312 runs and 26,944 PB's.

Despite the lockdown we have decided to continue with tradition and have our annual awards ceremony; and we can now reveal all our finalists and their categories.

Thank you to everyone who has attended #Tilgreatparkrun over the last 12 months, we have been missing you all very much over the #lockdown as well as our regular parkrun fix. We hope you are all keeping well and we look forward to the day we meet again for some #LakeParkLake fun.

Tilgate parkrun 2017-18 awards nominees

It's awards season at Tilgate parkrun.

On 9th June 2018, we will be celebrating 6 wonderful years of parkrunning at Tilgate parkrun and what an amazing 6 years it has been. After last Saturday's run we have run a combined 577,270km on a Saturday morning that is equivalent to 1.5 times round the whole UK road network! We have scanned and welcomed 11,736 different people (barcodes) who have recorded 20,773 PB's and have ascended Chevron a heart stopping 102,215 times, that on its own is equivalent to 3,271 parkruns - what a journey!

In our 6th year, so far we have completed 25,666 runs, welcomed 4,510 runners (507 juniors), 1,555 of these runners have achieved at least 1 PB and we had 488 volunteer parkrun makers - what a great year!

Each year to mark our anniversary, we give out our annual awards and celebrate with cake and fancy dress. Our theme this year is Teddy Bears picnic and we'd love to see some fabulous fancy dress costumes, some yummy cake baking and everyone is invited to bring a picnic along after parkrun and enjoy the park - we have so far always enjoyed good weather on our birthday.  Please arrive by 0845 on Saturday 9th June to give time to issue the awards and for the run to start as close to 9am as possible.

We believe that everyone who participates at parkrun is already winning, so a big well done to everyone who has run, walked, jogged and volunteered over the last year with us and will join us in saluting some remarkable individuals who have stood out amongst us.

Outstanding achievement nominees

9th June 2018 will mark our 6th birthday and for the first time we will be celebrating our birthday on the actual anniversary of our first run back in 2012.  We had 171 runners on that day and were assisted by 25 volunteers - How we have grown!.

Each year we celebrate our birthday with our annual awards event, we have a fancy dress theme and we encourage our community to bring along cake/goodies for sharing on the day.

One of our awards is nominated by the Community of Tilgate parkrun

'Tilgate parkrun's Outstanding Achievement of the year award'

The award now in its third year is open to all parkrunners attending Tilgate parkrun whether they be runners or volunteers and with our attendances cresting 600 a week we are sure that there are some individuals amongst us, with an inspirational story or achievement that should be acknowledged.

We have created a survey for you to submit your nominations to us, you may submit more than 1 nomination and it is not necessary to nominate the same person multiple times. The survey comprises just 5 questions and shouldn't take too long to complete, but do try and make sure you capture the reason for your nomination clearly.

The closing date for nominations is Sunday 20th May, so have a think about those around you that have inspired / continue to inspire or have just been fantastic over the last 12 months and get nominating.

The Survey can be accessed with the link below

Once the deadline has been reached, the survey will be closed and the Tilgate parkrun management team will review the nominations received and will decide the overall winner.

A full list of nominees will be announced with the other award finalists at Tilgate parkrun on 2nd June during the pre-run brief.  The other awards this year are

Tilgate parkrun parkrunner of the year

Tilgate parkrun Junior parkrunner of the year

Tilgate parkrun Volunteer of the year

Tilgate parkrun performance of the year - Male

Tilgate parkrun performance of the year - Female

Our awards ceremony will be on 9th June before our run starting at 0845 am. So be sure to arrive earlier than normal on our Birthday - details of theme, fancy dress, cake baking, etc will follow shortly.  

Good luck to all our nominators and nominees and we very much look forward to receiving and reading your submissions and then the tough challenge of the selection process.
