Worthing parkrun Event number 152 8th June 2019

408 runners and 29 volunteers helped us to celebrate our 3rd Birthday.

We acknowledged the contribution of the two guys, Matt Owen and Duncan Anderson, who were instrumental in making this wonderful event possible back in 2016. Duncan is pictured here at the pre run briefing.

One unwelcome guest at the party was the wind! As you can see from the information below, the strong westerly wind made going very tough on the outward leg of the course, so I bet everyone was pleased to see the marshal at the turn and feel the wind on their backs on the way home.

As a birthday treat we had a group from Run Things who supplied us with 8 pacers who were pacing different times between 22 and 38 minutes. Here they are pictured with their organiser Clare.

This week we were celebrating GP parkrun pledge day and were delighted to welcome along a great turn out from both Lime Tree surgery & St Lawrence surgery.

It was also lovely to have a representative from Victoria Road surgery marshalling on the course.

Because we think everyone who works in the NHS are superheroes & one of our runners suggested we have a themed event this week, we also had a good turnout of people dressed as superheroes!

Worthing parkrun #150 25th May 2019

Saturday 25th May saw Worthing parkrun host it's 150th event, this is only made possible by volunteer regularly giving their time (and not just on Saturday) and literally thousands of parkrunners coming to join us. No matter what your role at parkrun and whether this week was your first or 150th, we really appreciate you all.

Bank Holidays are always a risky in the UK when it comes to weather, but the sunshine arrived and gave all of our participants that extra challenge of running in the heat. However, everyone who crossed the finish line did so with a smile (including the canines), if quite sweaty. As we head into the Summer please remember to hydrate well and bring water for during or after your run.

We had some milestones this week; shout out to John who achieved our unique '50 volunteers' beanie hat. Just the right weather for wool headwear, hahaha. Thank you for the hours you've given.

John

Well done to Jez and Mark on reaching run milestones (Mark's family were well prepared for the photo opportunity, we love fun with numbers!). We look forward to a couple of photos in your new t-shirts.

In other news our male course record of 14.45 minutes, set by Tom Evans, was challenged and broken by Jake Wightman! Jake set a blistering pace and almost caught the finish funnel team offguard as he finished in 14.43 minutes. Not bad for his first time on the course........ Both Tom and Jake have represented TeamGB, and we can see why. We wonder if it's soon time for someone to challenge the female course record of 16.59 minutes set by Rebecca Moore.

Jake

Thank you to EVERYONE who volunteered at our event and thank you to all of our athletes and para-athletes for taking part (including the barkrunners!).

Our event on the 1st June will see a number of GP's join us for the 'parkrun pledge' and it's our 3rd Birthday on Saturday 8th June, see you there!

Worthing parkrun event no. 148 11th May 2019

As we move towards the summer months, as a seaside town, Worthing is preparing itself for a busy tourist season. As part of these preparations, there will be a number of disruptions along our normal route in the coming weeks/months, so please can we ask that everyone attends the pre-run briefing to ensure that we all remain safe.
