26/10/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #215 The wettest one ever..?

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 215
26th October 2019

Well I think it is fair to say that what with the appalling weather and an important World Cup Rugby match, many of you decided to give your parkrun a miss this week! Attendance was much lower than usual.

This week 131 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 7 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

Serious kudos must go to our first timers this week, who could quite easily have waited until a drier day to embark on their parkrun journey!

I managed to complete the course with my children who were the only Under 11s here this week which seemed strange. So despite us finishing at the back of the field, the girls were first and second in their age category! So hats off to them for completing it and thank you to all the kind volunteers who lent us gloves, brollies, dogs and support to get them around!!

The event was made possible by 24 volunteers who were just amazing today:

Sarah PRICE • David STARKIE • Katy BROOME • Carole EVANS • Graeme ANDERSON • Ann CHADWICK • Rosie CHADWICK • Lauren CHADWICK • Heather MORGAN • David FISH • Tony COLCLOUGH • Paul SCURRELL • Elizabeth COLCLOUGH • Rachael SHEPHERD • Ian BELL • Stella HOLLOWAY • Sue HODGETTS • Katie HODGETTS • Steve REDDING • Debbie REDDING • Jules MONTAGUE • Hendrik BUZINK • Andy WESTON • Daniel TIMMINS

Thank you to them all, your effort really was appreciated by every single parkrunner.

CONGRATULATIONS to the following parkrunners who reached milestones: Katherine IVINS, Vanessa HUGHES and Stephen GOMERSALL all completed their 50th parkruns this week. Well done all!

More rugby (and rain is forecast) for this weekend but I look forward to seeing those of you who can join us!

19/10/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #214 A view from tourist Sarah Ashby

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 214
19th October 2019

Thank you to Sarah ASHBY who visited us on Saturday for writing this week's fabulous run report!

Saturday is parkrun day and this week was no exception! Travelling from Bristol to the West Midlands for a day at the Safari park with children and friends, it was Wyre Forest’s turn this week. My husband isn’t a fan of getting up too early, but recently getting into parkrun and if I bribe him with breakfast and coffee after, he doesn’t usually take much persuading. So off we set for an early start, with our excited three year old in tow... she spends most Fridays asking “when can we parkrun mummy?” ! She didn’t join us in the buggy as usual this time but played in the mud with friends whilst we ran – which she was equally as happy with!

Wyre Forest event number 214 was great fun. The parkrun weather fairies were kind to us, despite it being slightly squidgy under foot and the forest was truly beautiful with its autumnal vibe. What struck me from the moment we arrived is how happy people were to be there and it was cheerful faces all around from the core team as we were greeted warmly by the Run Director. Huge thanks to the 21 volunteers named below who gave up their time to make today’s run possible, it really is appreciated by all us parkrunners.

Kim HOOD • Mark REAVES • Andrew GARLICK • Carole EVANS • Lisa GARLICK • Aran MOORE • Emma MORGAN • Jo MATHEWS • Rachael SHEPHERD • David ALLISTON • Ruth ALLISTON • Stuart BIRD • Sarah ASHBY • Pauline SMITH • Paul NEWRICK • Katherine EVANS • Steve REDDING • Debbie REDDING • Jules MONTAGUE • Deana KIMBER • Henry NEWALL

It was time for the all important run brief and welcoming tourists from as far as Australia, impressive! A few announcements, then it was 3,2,1... GO! I’d been warned the previous week by a fellow parkrunner at my home parkrun “I hope you like hills...”, but I must admit that I hadn’t quite appreciated just how hilly it would be – especially that cheeky uphill finish which just seemed to go on and on! At almost 32 weeks pregnant, it was rather different to my usual flat home parkrun – but needless to say, I still absolutely loved it! There’s something just so lovely about running through the beautiful colours of the forest and squishy trails underfoot, so despite the ups this really is a lovely parkrun and I’m chuffed I managed to run the whole lot.

Today saw 237 of us runners, joggers and walkers taking on this great course. 40 of these celebrated with a lovely little PB, and 32 people in total did this gem of a parkrun for the first time. 8 of these were completely new to parkrun - welcome to the first parkrun of the rest of your life! We hope you enjoyed it as much as the rest of us do. A huge well done also goes to Christopher Hancox and Melanie Parker who completed their 50th milestone run today, and Carole Hender and Ian Bell who completed their 100th – congratulations!

Saturday mornings always make me smile. What resonates with me every single week is that parkrun is many things to many people. And Wyre Forest you were no exception. There were walkers, buggies, dogs, children, running clubs represented, cheery marshals cheering us on, you name it. There’s something so therapeutic about a forest parkrun, we really enjoyed the course. Thank you for putting on such a fab event and another Saturday morning well spent. We’ll be sure to visit again when we’re in the area!
