16/11/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #218 ‘Ollie from Eastbourne’s run report

Wyre Forest parkrun

Event number 218

16th November 2019

This week's run report is brought to us by tourist Ollie Miller - thank you Ollie! Take it away...

Jane, do you fancy a few days break in Hartlebury with Auntie and Uncle in November?”, I ask.

What a great idea. You have some leave to use up, we haven't see them for a while and most importantly, Brighton are not playing at home that weekend,” she replies.

Fantastic, I will message them and see if they're available.”

Great, perhaps we can do a local parkrun on the Saturday,”

I know just the one!!!!!”

Finally, after many years of trying and failing, I have encouraged my fine wife of one-year to do the Wyre Forest parkrun. “Now, don't go out too hard because there is a hill at the end,” I explain. Having done Wyre Forest a few times, I know all about the Hill. I remember a volunteer advising me about the Hill on my very first Wyre Forest trip back in the glorious summer of 2017.

The Hill can't be that bad,” replies Jane.

Just wait and see!”. We arrive early, at 8:30, to do a quick course – or hill – check. Jane knows what she is up against in the final 500m. We are not big parkrun tourists, we are members of a local running group called the Polegate Plodders in Eastbourne, East Sussex. They regularly organise trips to nearby parkruns but we like the familiarity of the Eastbourne parkrun.

Anyway, back to Wyre Forest. First, can we just say how everyone was so welcoming and friendly; the openness and friendliness made this such a pleasurable morning and thank you to the locals who informed us that the hill is called “Cardiac Hill”.. Secondly, we were really impressed by the Run Director and Volunteer Coordinator Graeme ANDERSON. His speech was fantastic, thanking every volunteer in turn. This is definitely something we are going to suggest to Team Eastbourne.

David E LEWIS from Halesowen A and CC came home first in a time of 20 minutes 5 seconds. Just under thirty seconds later was the first lady home, Alison McEWING  in a time of 20 minutes 33 seconds. Alison runs for Erme Valley Harriers and was a first timer at today's event. Overall, there were 12 First Timers to parkrun in general and 30 First Timers to Wyre Forest parkrun. 242 parkrunners jogged, ran or walked the course, of which 30 recorded Personal Bests. Well done to you all.

MVIMG_20191116_090618

There were three athletes who recorded significant milestones – Chris DEARNLEY, Lisa BIGGS and Christa MAWHINNEY all participated in their 50th parkrun. Don't forget to order your milestone t-shirts online. As well as Jane and I from Eastbourne, there were also visitors from Chichester (also down south), London and most impressively South Africa.

For us, it is back to the flat terrain of Eastbourne next week before we have small tourists trips to Hastings and Finsbury Park, London at the end of November and beginning of December. We are already looking at our diaries next year for another trip to Wyre Forest. We better hit the South Downs for some practice so we are ready for Cardiac Hill.

Great report thank you Ollie!

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!

Meindert BOUMA, Will LEE, Michael PUGH, Stephanie JONES, Felicity HARVEY, Andrew TURLEY, Christopher PERRY, Stephanie GOLDS

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!

21/09/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #210

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 210
21st September 2019

At times parkrun can be a surprisingly small community and it can be interesting to see how fast news can travel. I have mentioned in the past when writing up these run reports that there are a number of parkrunners out there with a keen interest in statistics who are bound to notice when anomalies crop up. Today was such an event.

After the results were posted it didn't take long for one of the results to stand out, specifically that of a lady in the 100-104 age bracket who had run the course in 25:35  giving her an age grading of 790.81%. Just in case the gradings don't mean much to the casual reader consider that anything above 100% would be a record breaking achievement.

After a little investigation (thanks Mark) it transpired that a parkrunner had registered his dog, presumably using dog years for the age. We therefore had to delete the entry from the results and would like to remind everyone that while dogs are welcome at our parkrun only humans age 4 and up can register to log a time.

Moving on from that as always we'd like to welcome all of our first time parkrunners:

Robin GREENWOOD • Mark KNIGHT • Adam BOWLES • Edward DUNN • Donni MACKENZIE • Caroline HALLOWELL • Tom MEES • Tony BOWLES • Kerry SHERWOOD • Dylan BEARD • Jamie CLARK

Congratulations also to our milestone runners:

50 parkruns: Adrian FORD (PB!) and James CHAPMAN

100 parkruns: Geoff MUTTON

Parkrun cannot happen without a weekly team of volunteers who give up their time to allow parkrun to be a safe and free event.

Please volunteer especially if you have not done so yet. There is loads of support and various roles that need to be filled each week with some allowing you to run and volunteer on the same event,so please do volunteer- it’s putting something back. The future rosters are available to view, along with a role description and how to contact the team on our web page.

One special volunteer is Lindsay Tillsley. Today Lindsay was awarded Volunteer of the Year Award. Many thanks for all your time. A well deserved award.

Looking forward to seeing you next week for another parkrun in the beautiful Wyre Forest.
