In search of a U…. Event 393

Visitor Katy Cleece enjoyed UCp this week with her family. She sent in this great run report.

 

We travelled to Upton Court parkrun from Lancashire en route to Lapland today. Upton Court was not the closest to our hotel, but the most tempting as one of only 3 U parkrun’s in the UK and only 25 minutes drive (plus helpful communication from the RD in advance). Parking was free and the sat nav took us straight to the car park. I’m guessing the U is a big pull for others too, as there were 41 people running their first Upton Court parkrun today, and 3 of those running their first ever parkrun- special welcome to Saad Rehman, Jocelyn O’Brien and Tirza Meinema, we hope this is the first of many! Well done to Adam Kurp on reaching his 50 milestone run today, and congratulations to the 22 runners who set a new PB!

We followed the other runners across the field to the start area. There we were greeted by the most friendly and enthusiastic first time briefer. Course explained we made our way to the start (past the pop up for a pic with the sign), and a lovely fellow tourist chatted to us.

The run is mostly on grass which is harder going than you realise, but actually the ground was firm and it was very achievable with a pram- we spotted another couple of pram runners along the course too. The first lap is slightly longer and takes in a second field section. Both laps, as you make your way down the tarmac path, Windsor Castle is visable ahead. Even on an overcast day we caught a good glimpse! Lots of planes can be seen too, being so close to Heathrow.

All the way round, fellow runners and volunteers chatted to us. The beauty of a smaller parkrun is that friendliness which Upton Court has in abundance! We didn’t stay to sample the cafe but we were welcomed to. Instead we tried out the playground (enthusiastic thumbs up from the kids). Then (thanks to the advice of a friendly tourist) we drove 10 minutes away to Windsor where we were lucky enough to see the changing of the guards and enjoy a cake and tea in a cafe.

This week at Upton Court 19 people volunteered so this event could go ahead. New volunteers are always welcome at parkrun, if you’d like to volunteer at another event please email the team.

Thanks

Katy

 

UCp #391 6th November 2021

In previous years UCp has often had to have a week off around Bonfire Night due to the Slough Fireworks and Bonfire taking place in the park. Not this year though, and 137 runners/walkers were able to enjoy the parkrun and post a time. We welcomed 3 brand new parkrunners  this week just starting out on their parkrun journey, and 20 first time visitors, many of whom would have been gaining a "U" for their Alphabet Challenge.

The event was made possible by 20 volunteers.

Bob HARDMAN • Christopher HUNT • Colin John ADAMS • Ja HANSRA • Michael Terence BALLARD • Matt SMITH • Mo ARIF • David SANDERS • Jasbir HAYER • Rajdeep HAYER • Helen BOLT • Mick GRIEVE • Ibraar HUSSAIN • Dawn ESTABROOK • Gurdip HANSRA • Avery SREEMANY • Jia BHATTEL • Kriti BOLLINA • Lois POTCHINSKY • Hannah ASHCROFT

all donned the hiviz vests and made sure the run went ahead safely and smoothly. Five of these were young adults who we hope will be regular volunteers for the next few months as part of their Duke Of Edinburgh challenges. Saying that though, we do still need others to volunteer too. The link to the webpage Volunteer Roster can be found here future roster | Upton Court parkrun

Finally on to this week's APTOTW (Aesthetically Pleasing Time Of the Week). One obvious candidate was very visible. Cris MAZZI clearly had his sights set on a PB of 20:20 (Geddit?!)

Have a good week, and see you next time.

Michael

UCp #383 11th September 2021

First of all, apologies if you had trouble parking when you arrived this week. I had no prior knowledge that the 11-plus exams were taking place on Saturday, and only realised when I myself was on my way to parkrun with all the Run Director kit. By then it was a bit late to post anything on Facebook and Twitter to warn anyone else. I understand though that the traffic chaos quietened down at about 8:45, and I noticed that we actually only had one person crossing the Start line after the Tailwalker had started.

This week we welcomed our largest field of parkrunners since the restart in July. 179 crossed the finish line. This is almost back to our usual numbers we were getting pre-Covid.

9 of these were brand new to parkrun. We've seen a few newcomers since the restart. Let's hope they keep returning for run number 2, 3, 4 etc....  45 of our runners this week were first time visitors. We are still getting quite a few visitors each week, I assume all trying to get their letter "U" for their parkrun alphabet challenge.

One such alphabeteer was Adam 'Tango' HOLLAND, who was first finisher today. Not only was he getting his letter "U", he also joined the Half Cowell Club (or Cow Club) meaning he has run at 50 different parkrun locations. It turns out that Adam is well known in running circles, having run hundreds of marathons and winning more than any other runner in Great Britain. He told me that his time of 16:53 today was below his normal marathon pace. Rob FOSTER, who came in 2nd place today, told me to look up his stats. Adam has run a marathon in 2:24:24!

This week's APTOTW (Aesthetically Pleasing Time Of The Week) non-award is shared between Simon ELLIOTT and Avneet KAUR for their palindromic 24:42 and 43:34 respectively.

As always, a massive THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers, without whom you wouldn't be able to participate in parkrun. This week's superstars were:

Alison BRECH  •  Avtar MOOKAR  •  Dawn ESTABROOK  •  Gurdip HANSRA  •  Ja HANSRA  •  Jasbir HAYER  •  Kim REES  •  Matt SMITH  •  Michael Terence BALLARD  •  Murray REES  •  Rajdeep HAYER  •  Robert Steven NUTTER  •  Sue ALLEN  •  Tav BANSAL  •  Tony CHANA  •  Victoria GIBSON

We always need volunteers. None of the tasks are difficult, and everyone who does it enjoys the experience. Both of our Timekeepers this week were using the parkrun Virtual Volunteer for their first time, and realised that it is really simple to use, especially as they were using their own phones.

See you next time

UCp #379 14th August 2021

We started near the main park gates this week due to an event being held at the Rugby Club. Despite the lack of toilets, refreshments and any indoor facility, 156 finishers enjoyed the occasion, a few even telling me it felt a bit like a festival atmosphere.

We welcomed 34 first time visitors, many getting their letter "U" towards their parkrun alphabet challenge, as well as 5 brand new to parkrun. We look forward to seeing them again soon.

THANK YOU to the 15 volunteers who made sure the event went smoothly. Some of the volunteers have not actually run a parkrun since the post-Lockown restart yet, but have given up their time to make sure others can run. It's now time for others to give up a run or two and help the volunteer team in future weeks. We have had a lot of good feedback from those who have used the parkrun Virtual Volunteer app so far. It is simple to use, and means it is really quick and easy for us to process the results each week.

This week's APTOTW (Aesthetically Pleasing Time Of The Week) I am awarding to Ben DAVIES for his nicely rising 23:45.

Next week we will be back to our usual start point near the Rugby Club.

See you soon.

Michael

 

And we’re back!

Upton Court parkrun
Event number 376
24th July 2021

Well, after 70 Saturdays with no parkrun, we were really glad to be back this week. Looking at the weather forecast last night, I was worried that we might be having to cancel the run at the last minute due to lightning and thunder. But, luckily for once (or many times in fact!), BBC weather was totally wrong again!

It was so nice to see so many happy faces, both on the runners and on the volunteers, as well as those who came to support friends and relatives. Everyone enjoyed running up between the wildflower beds, the volunteers liked using the parkrun Virtual Volunteer app for timing and barcode scanning, and it was nice to get a coffee and a bacon roll again in the Rugby Club.

May be an image of 7 people, people standing, flower and nature

We had 118 finishers today, and reading comments on the unofficial Run Directors Facebook page, it seems that many parkruns across England also had about 55-65% their normal expected turnout. This included 6 people who were brand new to parkrun and 7 first time visitors. Well done to the 13 who ran a PB.

A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who, despite raring to run again, were happy to wait one more week. I hope that many of the people who ran today will be offering to volunteer in the next few weeks. Email us at uptoncourt@parkrun.com if you would like to help out. The feedback on the parkrun Virtual Volunteer App was very positive. very quick and easy to use. It also meant it was quicker and easier for me to process the results.

Congratulations to Shane ATHUKORALA who ran his 50th parkrun today, earning his red milestone T-shirt 71 weeks after running his 49th parkrun. What an agonising wait!

One tradition we aim to continue is awarding a (non)prize for the APTOTW (Aesthetically Pleasing Time Of The Week). This week I award it to Harbhajan DHILLON for his double double time of 22:22. Today was also his (arbitrary) 300th parkrun.

If you like our Facebook page @uptoncourtparkrun you will be able to see the 140 great photos taken today by 2 of our volunteers Sue ALLEN and Sue HAYES.

Only 7 sleeps now until the next parkrunday.

See you then.

Back to normality

Upton Court parkrun
Event number 374
7th March 2020

This week 215 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 5 were brand new to parkrun, 55 were first time visitors and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 30 different clubs took part. It was nice to see numbers back to our normal expectations, especially after last week's disappointingly small crowd of only 108. Boosted numbers were partly due to a visiting contingent of about 20 pupils and staff from Gordon School near Woking, and also because quite a few localish parkruns were cancelled. Despite the ground conditions not being great, I don't think I had a single complaint about the mud and puddles, but instead a few comments from people who had enjoyed the course.

A few runners celebrated milestones this week. Young Jasmine Sinclair ran her 10th parkrun. Young Sneha Sreeram ran her 100th parkrun, all of which have been here at UCp. And a mention goes to one of our core team Run Directors, Jim Hayes, who ran his 200th parkrun. Well done all.

The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:

Ja HANSRA • Michael Terence BALLARD • Dennis BONNIE • Kim UPTON • Matt SMITH • James BATES • Christopher FOX • Matthew MOORE • Lucinda LONGSTER • Harry JACKSON-LOWE • Lisa EUDEN • Lisa DOIDGE • Zichen MA • Gurdip HANSRA • Molly YOUNG

And now for something serious. Yesterday, one of our marshals was seriously verbally abused by a runner who thought he wasn't being allowed to park near the Rugby Club. Maybe due to a misunderstanding with the directions being offered by the marshal, the runner shook his head, turned his car around and drove off. When he later walked down past the marshal, he subjected the marshal to a serious verbal tirade (including much swearing) claiming that he hadn't been allowed to park, whereas other people were being allowed. The marshal later wasn't able to specifically identify the runner, but the incident was reported by me to parkrun HQ as part of our usual results processing.

As he was not identifiable, it might be that he was a first time visitor, and that this will be his only visit here. However, we will not accept such behaviour from anyone, either at parkrun, in the Rugby Club or for that matter, in life generally. The point is is that parkrun is free, and only operates because of the generosity of people who willingly give up some time on a Saturday morning. No one should have to be subjected to such abuse. If you have anything to complain about, speak to the Run Director, who will try to sort out any issue. Such events can put people in the wrong frame of mind for the rest of the weekend, and could put them off ever volunteering again. It isn't nice, isn't acceptable, and won't be tolerated.

Let's hope such an incident doesn't happen again. If it was a regular, can we suggest that you try to arrive in good time for parkrun, not a couple of minutes before it is due to start.

Let's finish on something a bit more fun, the Aesthetically Pleasing Time Of The Week (APTOTW) non award. We had so many runners who recorded straight minutes that it was almost like it was a planned pacer day. Tom Atherden 20:00, Claire Pusey 21:00, Philip Carter 22:00, Scott Woodhouse 25:00, Alison Allen 28:00, Paramjit Bansal 29:00, Kenny McKinnon 39:00, Lucy Gardner 41:00 and Reahana Hawa 45:00 were our unofficial 'pacers'. I do like a palindromic time, and we had an abundance of those too: Sachiko Dixon 23:32, Zsolt Spirnyak 24:42, Jane Colbeck-McKinnon 25:52, Debbie Batchelor 32:23, Rajagopalan Venkataraman 40:04. But my winner is Mark Smith, who with his 33:33 achieved a nice time that was also palindromic.

See you next time.

Nice weather for…….geese!

Upton Court parkrun #373
29 February 2020

Today marked a piece of parkrun history as this was the first time that parkrun had coincided with a leap day. It was also the first time that it was possible to complete 5 parkruns in February. The next time you will be able to parkrun on 29th February will be in 2048.

However, another weekend brought with it another storm. This time it was the turn of Jorge. Upton Court proved yet again to be a safe haven for a number of displaced runners following the closure of numerous parkruns including Banbury, Bracknell, Guildford, Reading and Oxford. The conditions were some of the wettest and muddiest we have witnessed at Upton Court to the point that some geese had taken up residence on the course. It's worth noting that to the best of my knowledge Upon Court parkrun has never been cancelled due to the weather. The number of runners was well down on our average but the early heavy rain that Matt Smith had endured during course set up had actually eased by start time.

We welcomed two runners to the parkrun family: Bradley Wood and Gerry Mcnamara.

Stephanie Poulson and Stephanie Robert both achieved the 50 parkrun milestone.

Alexy Dury, whilst collecting the letter "U" as part of the alphabet challenge, also ran her 50th different parkrun (Half Cowell).

Only one person achieved a PB in the difficult conditions and so a special mention goes to Danielle Goodall for knocking over a minute off her previous record.The first man home was Lee Parker (19:29) and first lady was Kathryn Purcell (23:08), both were visitors and first time runners at Upton Court. Top age grading was achieved by Jon Kew (72% ) and Birgit Cunningham (69%). Aesthetically pleasing time of the week (APTOTW) was awarded to Robert Nutter for 29:00 dead as it matched today's date, as well as the overall average time for Upton Court parkrun after 373 runs..

Run Report #368 and Visitors collecting a “U”

Event #368  25th January 2020

It was 6°C and cloudy this morning on what was the last parkrun of January. It’s been a very busy month with lots of first timers joining us as part of their new year's resolutions, visitors arriving from other parkruns increasing their tourist quotient and even our regular parkrunners who have been going strong in what feels like a very long month. This was the 5th parkrun this month including the New Year's Day special event. A massive well done to everyone. You are awesome!

Today’s summary;

  • A total of 217 took part in parkrun this morning
  • 12 First Timers
  • 28 First Time Visitors
  • 20 achieved a Personal Best
  • 19 volunteered
  • Angela Ainsworth joined the 100 parkrun club
  • Tony Chana ran his 300th parkrun
  • David Raynor ran his 100th UCp and paid for 67 cups of tea and coffee to celebrate
  • David Pocklington wins APTOW (Aesthetically Pleasing Time of the Week) with 23:23

Visitors collecting a “U”

If you wondered why we get so many visitors at Upton Court parkrun, most of the time the visitors come here to collect their letter “U”. They are also fondly known as parkrun Tourists. Why is collecting a letter “U” so important? This is part of the Alphabet Challenge on the Running Challenges website and many parkrun enthusiasts up and down the country use the Running Challenges to add twists, turns and variation to their Saturday morning fix. There aren’t actually that many “U” parkruns to choose from, only a handful. Other "U" parkruns include Uckfield (East Sussex), Upton House (Poole, Dorset) and Ury Riverside (Aberdeenshire, Scotland).

The getting here…

We enjoy welcoming visitors at UCp and are delighted that they have chosen us to collect their “U”. Having done a fair few first timers briefings, I get to hear first hand of their journeys. I’m very often amazed hearing of their adventures getting here, usually along the lines of multiple train journeys, overnight coaches, long car drives and then when they arrive close to Slough they might make a mad dash for a local bus or call an Uber to make it here just in time! Phew! In my mind I’m thinking “my gosh, aren’t you tired? maybe you need a lie down?” But no, they are bright eyed, bushy tailed and raring to go!

Visitors come here with incredible energy, often hanging around after the parkrun for a coffee and chit chat, and sometimes we get volunteers for token sorting which is always nice. When the Run Director calls out “Do we have any visitors today?” and they shout out Liverpool! Nottingham! Aldershot! Watford! … we get to give them another warm welcome at the start line. Also not forgetting the ones from further afield, we’ve welcomed visitors from Australia, New Zealand and Singapore too.

Visitors' briefing

At the briefing we promise our visitors they are in for a real treat. We are a two-lap course, mind the gradual slope up the field, you’ll definitely feel it on the second lap but you get to skip the far field on the second time around. Our marshals will cheer and encourage you along at key turning points and there's no danger of getting lost on our course. We have wooden posts marking each Km for those counting up or counting down. We also have orange cones, try to keep the cones to your left, but we’ll forgive you if you forget because the regulars sometimes forget too! Once you’ve come through the finish funnel, head over to the Rugby Clubhouse for barcode scanning, hand in your finish tokens and grab a tea/coffee, sometimes there is cake too!

Oh yes! How to spot Windsor Castle? We tell our visitors they must not go home without seeing Windsor Castle… when you turn onto the concrete path at the top corner of the park (near the main car park), remember to look straight ahead and up, I can't stress this enough... look up up up! Windsor Castle looks exactly like it does on our parkrun website page. That’s the picture you want! Don't worry though, if you miss it on the first lap, you can catch it on the second lap, and if you miss it again on the second lap… you can catch on your way home to the car park…

In recent weeks, our visitors have embraced and enjoyed another great feature of our parkrun, open sky and exposure to ‘the elements’ - by this we mean our course could be good practise for a Tough Mudder challenge, there’s just been so much mud the last couple of months. At times, you could swim the top end of the far field. Our visitors don’t seem to mind our parkrun terrain at all and often comment at how civilised we are to take our shoes off before entering the clubhouse!

It was cold, but sunny.

Upton Court parkrun
Event number 367
18th January 2020

This week 184 people ran, jogged and walked the frosty but still muddy course, of whom 31 were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to all those who ran a milestone this week.  Sue Matthewman, Jafrullah Mohammad and Rajwinder Kaur all earned their red 50 parkrun T-shirts.   And Sreeram Thiagarajan and Dhananjay Papde both earned their black 100 parkrun T-shrts.

And congratulations to Riffat Mian-Hashim, who I am awarding this week's APTOTW to for her double double time of 44:44.

Can I remind you that the finish token you receive when you cross the finish line is not yours to keep.  We lost 5 this week, though we do know the whereabouts of 1 of them.  We seem to be losing a few each week, despite informing everyone in both the first-timers briefing and in the pre-run briefing to return the tokens.  We can only assume that it is people brand new to parkrun who are going home with them.  Please, if you see people at or near the finish line who may look like they are not sure what to do next after finishing their run, point them in the direction of the clubhouse.  It was suggested by a visitor this week that maybe we should do our scanning outside, nearer the finish line.  We really don't want to have to resort to this.

The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:

Sunita DAWETT • Claire BOYLES • Ja HANSRA • Michael Terence BALLARD • Robert Steven NUTTER • Matt SMITH • Christopher FOX • Anne MOGRABY • Lucinda LONGSTER • Caren HUNT • Stuart MONTGOMERY • Harry JACKSON-LOWE • Liza HIDE-SMITH • Zichen MA • Gurdip HANSRA • Erin OLIVER • Rishita RALLABANDI
