The Freezing One – run report 643, 30 November 2019

By Dave Lingwood (who happens to be our 2000th unique volunteer - thanks, Dave!). 

Sub freezing temperatures and treacherous ice were not enough to dissuade 472 hearty and headstrong runners from getting their parkrun fix at Woodhouse Moor on Saturday morning.

Gathering at the start, with the temperature hitting -2, Anne was on fine form as she belted out a ‘Good Morning’ to all assembled. After the usual housekeeping, attention turned to milestones. Congratulations to Amar Bhatti, who completed his 200th parkrun and Kerry PLAYLE who celebrated reaching her ton. Well done finally to Ria REMBACKEN and Susie WEEKES, who both completed their 50th parkrun. Lastly, there was a big round of applause for the 5K Your Way Move Against Cancer team, looking resplendent in their blue t-shirts, raising awareness of the work they do in supporting those affected by cancer through the benefits of physical activity. Well done to the 5K team and thank you again for coming down in such numbers. 

With the feel good vibes at a high and the cold subsiding (sort of!), we were off. As a tourist visiting from York, I was excited to have an opportunity to explore the park. Setting off for the first lap, I really enjoyed the constantly changing scenery, sharp bends and corners. Running around the perimeter of the park and close to the edge of the grounds also afforded the chance to have a ‘nosey’ at the Hyde Park neighbourhood, something you cannot say for a lot of other parkruns! Halfway through the first lap, it became clear that some parts of the course were quite icy. A big thank you to the alert volunteer heroes in these areas who, in addition to standing in the freezing cold with cheerful smiles, were kind enough to point out and cordon off the most treacherous parts of the course for approaching runners. Your intervention certainly avoided quite a few ‘Bambi on ice’ moments, for me definitely!

Completing the second and third lap with more confidence, and even feeling slightly less freezing, I enjoyed crossing the line nearly as much as the course itself. Overall, a great location, a wonderfully friendly volunteer team and great organization, I definitely enjoyed my first visit to Leeds’ longest running parkrun. Thank you, and see you soon hopefully!

Many congratulations to all the participants including the following: 

Sam ROBINS – First Male Finisher (17:19)

Anna STOCKS – First Female Finisher (20:12) with a new PB too!

Lee INGHAM – Best Age Grading (77.85%) on his 2nd ever parkrun.

George KAINYEK - Most Experienced Parkrunner, amazingly completing his 547th parkrun.

For the benefit of the statistically inclined we welcomed 55 first time visitors from different parkruns, and runners from clubs in Aberystwyth, Bingley, East London, Farsley, Harrogate, Horsforth, Hyde Park, Jarrow, Morpeth, Penistone, Presteigne, Ripon, Saltwell and York. Congratulations to the 57parkrunners who all smashed their PBs, an amazing achievement given the challenging conditions.  You are all amazing.

We finally welcomed 19 first ever parkrunners to Woodhouse. Well done to Sophia LUBIECKI, Daniel HOPLEY, Stephen CORCORAN, Sammy GIBSON, Joe BARBER, Joseph KUO, Ralph PORTER, Alex NEWSOME, Lewis BURTON, Laura JENKINS, Anna WILCOCK, Katharine MAY, Jacob RICHES, Rachel HODGSON, Jo BAXTER, Jane PRUST, Stephen PRUST, Isaac JACKSON and Will JACKSON. Congratulations to you all and welcome to the parkrun family. If you can make it today on such a cold day, next time will be a breeze I’m sure!
Don't forget, the first Saturday of the month is Pacer Saturday, if you want to pace, or want to be paced to a specific time, let us know. Also, the Wrangthorn Runners will be offering their usual warm coffee and cakey hospitality over at the church afterwards. And, if you have old trainers you no longer want, please bring them this week, they'll go to prisoners in Zimbabwe, men, women and, sadly, children.

Our parkrun wouldn’t have been possible without our wonderful volunteers who dedicated their time and effort to ensuring the event went as smoothly as ever. Thank you to the following awesome volunteers who braved the cold:

500 for Nicola! Run report 641, 16 November 2019

We had a happy celebration and sad news this week. A week after seven-year-old Poppy Forwood joined the 100 Club, her mum Nicola ran her 500th, in neon! She was joined by neon-clad friends and colleagues from all over the country.

Sadly we reported the death of Sue Smith. Sue,  a Hyde Park Harrier, who had run 228 parkruns, most of them with us, passed away on Friday. Sue had been ill for some time, but was always cheerful and fun, we'll miss her.

Just 50 parkruns behind Nicola is Adam Moger, who ran his 450th, Jason Newell joined the 250 Club, Barrie Hopson ran his 200th, Alys Griffiths 150, Peter Garrod and Nicole Woodward joined the 100 Club and James Nicholson, Sandra Warren, Marcus Sharpe and Jane Ryan ran their 50ths.

It was another record-breaker for Andrea Barras, who broke the VW70-74 age category record with her time of 25.52, an amazing 86.08%.

And a big thank you to international students from Leeds University who volunteered with us this week.

Celebrations and bananas! Run report 640, 9 November 2019

Little did she know that when she crossed the start line at the first ever Leeds (now Woodhouse Moor) 12 years ago, Jaz Kaur Bangerh would run another 499. At the time, she wasn't even that keen on running!

Since then, she's made so many friends and now works for parkrun as Head of HR and Volunteer Management, oh and she runs too! She wanted to say thank you to her fellow parkrunners and volunteers, but instead of cake, she gave us healthy bananas, and wrote a personal message on all 400. Now THAT's a thank you - and thank you, Jaz!

It was also a milestone for Poppy Forwood, who celebrated her seventh birthday last week. Poppy ran her 100th - and chalked up a PB, she even brought cake! Her mum Nicola will be running her 500th on Saturday.

Thank you also to volunteers came to publicise the Northern Man Festival, which is taking place at the Playhouse on November 16. It's themed 'What is a Man' and is about men's health - loneliness, talking with health information. There's a play about men's health, a panel discussion, stalls and activities.

If you're a qualified first aider and can run with one of our first aid bags, let us know, we'd love to have you on the team, and of course you will get a volunteer credit.

Celebrating our centenarian marshal – run report 683, 26 October 2019

We were saddened to hear the news that Anne Ambler, who often helped marshal with Peter Yates, has passed away, just a couple of months after her 100th birthday. She certainly holds the record for being our oldest marshal. Thanks to Peter for sharing her poem with us, she did love parkrun!

Well done to those who braved torrential rain and impromptu water features this week, and many thanks to our hardy volunteers who arrived early and left late to make sure we could all parkrun. There were more smiles than frowns as you splashed down the finish straight.

We had a message from Paul Tranter that he'd be running his 350th with us at his home parkrun come rain or shine. It turned out it was rain, so well done, Paul, lovely to see you!

Saturday also saw the launch of 5k Your Way, a support group for those living with and beyond cancer. They'll be joining us the last Saturday of each month.

Next week, the first Saturday of the month, there's an open invitation from Wrangthorn g Runners to join them over at the church afterwards for coffee and cake.

637 parkruns, 501 unique first finishers. Run report 19 Aug 2019

Before Saturday, we had recorded 499 different first finishers, female and male. This week Clara Horswell and Joe Gebbie tipped us over to 501 as first timers and first female and male finishers.

For the stats fans among us, that means every couple of weeks or so, someone who's never finished first before at Woodhouse Moor does so.  On the other hand, Treena Johnson, our age graded record holder, has finished first 42 times and Matthew Akpan 40 times.If you want to see the full list of first finishers, it's here (see if you can spot Ali Brownlee!)  As we all know, though, parkrun is always a run, jog or walk and never a race. We'll celebrate with you whether you're first or further down the field!

We had a few milestones this week, Bartosz Lewandowski ran his 250th, which just happened to be his 150th at Woodhouse Moor, Claudia Bauer and Andy Best ran their 200th and Phil Fisher his 150th. There were six new members of the 100 Club, Gabriel Kilner, Caroline Crossley, Anny Chui, Eleanor Morden, Dominic Makohin and Andrew Furber. Natalie Falshaw, Louise Gilbert and Kevin Lally ran their 50ths.
