Ury Riverside parkrun is cancelled on 6 June 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Event number 19

The windy weather did not deter the 137 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this morning.

We had 28 were first timers and representatives of 22 different clubs but really must applaud the 29 recorded new Personal Bests in those tough conditions.

A big shout out to Carol from JSM who ran her 100th parkrun and provided us with banana bread, shortbread and some amazing fudge after the run. Also good to meet some new faces to Inverurie, we look forward to welcoming you back in brighter conditions!

We had a first this morning in that Gordon volunteered as photographer although he did say he struggled to find many smiley, happy faces! We look forward to seeing the photos later!

Today was event number 19 and we are not sure when we will be able to hit that 20 button! Due to the current Coronavirus situation we continue to receive full guidance from HQ and will keep everyone updated on FB about our position going forward. Thank you to everyone for their understanding and support in this.

As quoted by Davie Black on parkrun Friends Scotland FB site we “Can't begin to emphasise the importance of the commitment our volunteers are making today as we face some very concerning times right across the world. Huge nod our yellow fellows one and all. “

Ury Riverside parkrun #14 with Storm Ciara

Ury Riverside parkrun

Event number 14

8th February 2020

Another fab morning at Ury Riverside this weekend  and  the weather reasonably kind although the stiff wind not quite the Storm Ciara anticipated. Good numbers again this week  - 232 people ran, jogged and  walked the course, of whom 64 were first timers and 77 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.

Joining us this weekend were local parkrun Ambassadors Glen Chalmers and Steven Garden just  to make my third stint as RD even more nerve wracking ( only joking , Glen and Steven have been ace in helping us get established) . 

It’s always a privilege to be Run Director but there are so many things to remember as you can see from the graphic Glen sent me after the run. This week I covered most of what I needed to in the briefing but forgot to ask about the milestones and to make  matters  worse I completely forgot my good friend Greig Cruickshank was running his 50th and indeed had put up a spot prize for 50th position (won by Bill Whitcombe). Thanks Greig !

Despite the conditions we had a new female course record set by Nicola Gauld in a time  of 18.31, second only to Tom Roche.

We didn’t  lose any tokens this week which is great but we still had a few runners  missing their barcodes (see graphic above )....(says he who has forgotten his twice

Event number 13

1st February 2020

So this week  we were joined by  some of the team from Run Garioch 2020  and on a  chilly dry day 284 people ran, jogged and walked the course.  We had  89  who were first timers  some local and some from further afield  and 78 recorded new Personal Bests so well done to all those who have achieved this. And well done to all our first timers and hopefully we will see you back soon !

On the day the Run Garioch 2020 team along with Garioch the Mascot were on hand to cheer and high five the runners and distributed vouchers for discounted places at this years races on 29 March. We also had two spot prizes for free places and they were won by Iain CARNIE and Amber JOHNSTON. Enjoy the race guys !!

***  WE DO HOWEVER HAVE TWO TOKENS THAT HAVE ESCAPED FROM URY RIVERSIDE AND WE NEED THEM BACK PLEASE !!!****

*IF YOU HAVE TOKEN 55 OR 284 PLEASE GET IN TOUCH ASAP

We have a full Roster for 8th and 15th of February but are now looking for volunteers for the 22nd and 29th so please get in touch  if you‘d like to be part of  the team making this great parkrun happen. All the tasks are pretty straightforward and  there will be plenty of support and guidance.

Cara HAY was RD for the first time and welcomed everyone with the following poem -

Once the was a plodder who volunteered on the side

She got asked to be RD at Ury Riverside

She welcomed the crowds, the tourists and first timers

To her home parkrun in which she takes pride

 

She reminded the doggies to keep owners quite near

1 owner per doggie – the rules are quite clear

Under 11’s – the same rules apply

Keep your adults in check and make sure they’re nearby

 

She told runners to respect all using the route

Keep to the right and nae messing aboot

Her last parting message is one which is clear

A big thank you to all who volunteer

 

So good luck and enjoy, from all at Ury Riverside

This RD will probably no longer get to hide

And when the run is over and done

Inverurie Garden Centre provides a warm welcome to everyone.
