It was a rainy start at #worthingparkrun number 202 as the pre-event set up team (pictured above) took shelter (somehow) from the rain.

This week 328 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 36 were first timers and 47 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 39 different clubs took part.

This week Claire Wallace (pictured below) and Ian Foster celebrated their 50th run milestone - congratulations to you both.

A huge congratulations also to Michael Rix; while he has run 380 - yes 380 parkruns! Today Michael celebrated his 100th Worthing parkrun.  An amazing commitment Michael, congratulations.

Now, we often shine a spotlight on our amazing volunteers in the parkrun report, and today, there is no doubt that we need to celebrate the contribution made this morning by Freddie (aged 11) and Bertie (aged 9).  Their energy, passion, enthusiasm and sheer joy at being involved in the event, is a reminder to us all that parkrun is not just about the running.  Thank you Freddie & Bertie, you were simply amazing today.

And our final thoughts for this week are with Uncle RamJam, never be intimidated by the shirt, it's the taking part that counts!

It was a tad drizzly at worthing parkrun #199 this morning but great to see 378 people run, jog or walk the course. This morning 39 of you were new to Worthing parkrun, with 18 complete first-timers to parkrun; welcome to the parkrun tribe. And 54 of you recorded new Personal Bests today; congratulations.

Some special shout out’s for this morning;

  • David CURTIS, congratulations on your 100th parkrun
  • Nick CHAMBERS, congratulations on your 50th parkrun

Wear your black and red t-shirts with pride.

Our weekly volunteer focus is on the role of the number checker. The number checker is responsible for recording (but not correcting) discrepancies that may arise between the timer and the numbers given out. Throughout the run, they record data between the Timekeeper and Finish Token volunteers. It's a key role that helps the results processing each week. If you want a role that keeps you moving while volunteering, then give number checking a go!

As a gentle reminder, all parkrun events operate under the COVID-19 Framework; all of us, both volunteers and runners, have a role in ensuring some simple and basic etiquette. Let's talk about spitting; participants should not spit anywhere on the course, and that includes the funnel folks.

Next week is our 200th parkrun; this is your chance to get creative. We know how much you all love a spot of dressing up. For our 200th parkrun, the fancy dress theme is 'How Worthing Parkrun Makes Me Feel'. We will have cameras at the ready.

Enjoy your week folks.

This week 458 people ran, jogged, or walked the course, of whom 54 were new to Worthing parkrun with 25 of you complete first-timers - welcome to the parkrun tribe! There has obviously been lots of training going on in the last few weeks, as today 77 new PB's were recorded - you guys are on fire !!

This week, a few newbies got a bit confused at the finish, a big plea, if you are new to worthing parkrun, please do take the time to attend the first-timers briefing, it might take seconds off your finish time.

A special shoutout to some 50 'Milestoners', firstly, Andrea FALLEN (pictured above), along with Ben Duncan & Caroline ALLEN.  Congratulations all of you, wear your Red T-Shirt with pride!

In addition, a HUGE shout-out today for Michael JONES who is now in the 250 club! WOW

In other news, here at Worthing parkrun HQ, we are a little obsessed with numbers.  Did you know that since we started (Jun 2016) 11,016 participants have run, jogged, or walked the course?  Since that date, we have had 757 volunteers; if you have never volunteered before come and give it a go, it really is a rewarding thing to do, it's also quite good fun!  This week's volunteer focus is on timekeeping.

The Timekeeper is responsible for recording the finish time of all the participants at the event, all you need is to download the parkrun app and have a keen eye. There are always 2 of you doing the job, so never worry that you 'might get it wrong. If you fancy having a go, please do let us know at worthing@parkrun.com.  This week our Timekeeping Team was Chris MCALEES & Amanda de RIDDER. - great job guys, Thank You!
