Christine WENHAM (above) said "Sore knees today but what a beautiful day and lovely run! Thanks to everyone who volunteered so we could get our fix"

So thank you to:

Gillian TYLER • Nigel GARDNER • David MORE • Mark WALLACE • Sarah PRICE • Annette MORE • Alison FLETCHER • Neil CRABBE • Andrew GARLICK • Carole EVANS • Lenka MOORE • Aran MOORE • Matt KIMBER • Amy SMITH • Lindsay TILLSLEY • John FRANCIS • Steve KIMBER • Gavin MILLICHIP • Tim SCARBOROUGH • Debbie TURNER • Caz SMITH • Dylan TURNER • Debbie JACKSON • Charlie SMITH • William SMITH • Mark SHELDON • Sarah BOWLES • Sarah PUGH

A huge CONGRATULATIONS must go to William RICHARDSON yet again for lowering his own Course Record by another few seconds to make it 15:35!! This time also saw him claim the overall Age Graded Course Record for Wyre Forest parkrun with a percentage of 83.64. Absolutely astounding pace - this is 5.01 minutes per mile!!! Which is why we didn't get any photographs of Will in action I'm afraid..!

And well done to Philip JONES who completed his milestone 50th parkrun with us this week. Great commitment Phil.

We were also joined by over 35 members and supporters of Cleobury Mortimer Running Club who completed the parkrun as part of their club's event calendar and championship. Thank you to them all for their continued support of Wyre Forest parkrun and for staying to cheer everyone at the finish line!

CMRC at parkrun

Ellen POWELL remarked that "Wyre Forest parkrun has the best finish line supporters. Are they cheering because you've just ran a parkrun or because you're still alive at the top of heart attack hill"!! Both Ellen! We think everyone deserves a big cheer for their efforts.

And Bryony POYNER said "Fantastic finish line support today - thank you all!"

Thank you for all your lovely comments this week!

It was a very chilly run this week so thanks to all those amazing volunteers once again.

 

DSC_1807

 

So where do I start with this week's run report? We had several important milestones and three big birthdays to celebrate this week. Cake, balloons and fancy dress were in abundance!

 

I think we should start with our oldest EVER parkrunner - the local (Wolverley) legend that is Lindsay B PULLEY. Lindsay turned 80 this Saturday and despite partying the night before with his Cleobury Running Club friends, he and several of them turned up (some more bleary eyed than others) to join Lindsay and his son Nick (home parkrun Rushcliffe) on his 225th parkrun.

DSC_1901

 

Lindsay is of course very well known in the local running community as the man who founded Amazing Feet Running Club (Kidderminster) and has then ran for Dudley Kingswinford and Midland Masters AC before recently joining CMRC.

At 80, Lindsay becomes an Age Category Record holder at Wyre Forest with his time of 35:24. He was just jogging so he will no doubt beat his own record when he next tries!

At the other end of the age scale we also celebrated Adam SCURRELL's 16th Birthday! And Adam was also running his 100th parkrun - a milestone he shared with mum MICHELLE (Shelly)! I said it was a busy week....! Congratulations Adam and Shelly (of Tri Energy) and thank you for all the volunteering you do too.

Matthew BAILEY was also running his 100th parkrun this week - he joined Lindsay and his CMRC club mates to complete his milestone in a more leisurely fashion than usual (Matt is no stranger to the P001 token!) and thanks to wife ROWAN we all enjoyed some delicious cakes afterwards! Congratulations Matt.

Next up was another Wyre Forest regular Tony COLCLOUGH (aka Frosty) of the Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers - he was also running his 100th parkrun and his club mates carried on their usual tradition with a themed parkrun - this week FLAMINGOES!

Congratulations also to junior Daniel WALLIS who completed his 10th parkrun, Jemima SHELDON and Mark SHELDON who ran their 50th parkruns and our lovely Debbie HYRONS (token sorter extraordinaire!) who also ran her 50th parkrun as volunteer sign collector.

We also wished a Happy 65th Birthday to camera shy Chris HANCOX!

I really hope I haven't missed anyone!

 

And finally - I couldn't resist sharing this photograph! Titled "When you manage to beat the course record holder over 100m dressed as a flamingo"! Thank you Mark WALLACE for this classic moment and to photographer Gav MILLICHIP for capturing it perfectly!

DSC_1812

 

It's going to be hard to top all these celebrations but I'm sure you'll all help us try as we celebrate Christmas this week with our usual festive fancy dress parkrun. We will bring cakes and music, we just need you to bring the fun! Oh and your barcodes too of course!

See you there
Andie

06/10/2018 Wyre forest parkrun #160 National parkrun day: A day for heroes

 

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 160
6th October 2018

This week on 'National parkrun day' 150 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 23 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.

The weather was pretty frightful this morning, cold with heavy rain and numbers were unsurprisingly down on usual. But even so a handful of brave souls turned up to complete their first ever parkrun! Well done all:

Dominic WILDE, Reuben SABEL, Lachlan WILTON, Eloise PARMENTER-POYNER, Eartha KRUFT WELTON, Raymond PRICKETT

Special congratulations to Neil JARVIS on your 50th parkrun today.

Yes, today marked 14 years since Paul Sinton-Hewitt and his 12 parkrun pioneers ran the first Bushy Park 5k time trial, what we now know as parkrun. Since then those 13 have grown to over 5 million registered parkrunners worldwide. And for the record, that includes the awesome 3,556 of you that have registered Wyre Forest as your home run.

Untitled

So today it seems fitting to reflect on a couple of our own parkrunners - at different points in their parkrun journeys.

We heard about Raymond PRICKETT from RD Graeme during the briefing and his journey to his debut parkrun. Ray suffered a heart attack a year ago. He had smoked heavily for 50 years, not really looked after himself and his heart attack resulted in lifesaving triple heart bypass surgery. Ray has now got himself much fitter and today ran his first ever parkrun! What an inspiration. Hopefully Ray will become a regular at Wyre Forest.

Untitled
Photo: Ray before his first parkrun

Another parkrun success story is my CMRC club mate Ben PARKES. Ben ran his first parkrun exactly a year ago. On that day it took him 36:06 but he was hooked and came back the following week, and the week after that...you know how it goes! In early 2018 Ben joined us at Cleobury Mortimer Running Club and continued to chip away at his parkrun time (and on one occasion running the course 3 times as a long run with a parkrun PB in the middle!)

This week he asked his club mates to help to get him another PB - which would take him to under 26 minutes and therefore mean he had taken 10 minutes off his original finish time in a year. It was a big ask (he'd need to take another 30 seconds off a PB he set just last week!) but I am proud to report that he did it this morning finishing in a time of 25:48! I hear that his pacing team were pretty tough with him so extra well done to you Ben, a true parkrun success story.

And of course we can not forget our super volunteers, the real heroes today. It was tough running in it but these guys were stood still in the downpour. We are incredibly grateful to you all:

Nigel GARDNER • Phil DOLPHIN • Shirley THOMAS • Mark WALLACE • Helen RUTHERFORD • Andrea FORD • Jake GOOD • Alison MACDONALD • Neil CRABBE • Katy BROOME • Graeme ANDERSON • Tom ANDERSON • Lindsay TILLSLEY • John FRANCIS • Vicki KELLY • Robin LAMBE • Luisa TURNER • Rachael SHEPHERD • David ALLISTON • Ruth ALLISTON • Graham GOOD • Maria MIHAJLOVIC • Sasha GUEST • Daren JACKSON • Pauline SMITH • Caz SMITH • Charlie SMITH • Debbie REDDING • Patrick YARRANTON-GREEN

Untitled

Without volunteers, there is no Wyre Forest parkrun so please don't forget to do your bit. It may seem scary or you may not want to miss your run but all the roles are super easy and some jobs can be done before and after so you get to run too! Get in touch at wyreforesthelpers@parkrun.com, thank you.

Don't forget that we will be celebrating Halloween on October 27th with our spooky spectacular themed run so start thinking about those costumes now!

Thanks for reading, happy running,
Andie

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 155
1st September 2018

As summer turns to autumn, we are very lucky in that we are still experiencing some lovely weather, and it was a beautiful morning in the forest! 25 lovely volunteers turned up to facilitate this mornings run. Please give thanks to:

Ian DENNIS • Kim HOOD • Richard FAIN • Mark WALLACE • Philip SHELDON • Andrew T DAVIES • Joanne WATSON • Jake GOOD • Mark REAVES • Neil CRABBE • Katy BROOME • Carole EVANS • Stephen MOORE • Graeme ANDERSON • Tom ANDERSON • Emma PAINE • Steve KIMBER • Gavin MILLICHIP • Jacqui WINTER • Graham GOOD • Daren JACKSON • Wayne GRIFFIN • Pauline SMITH • Lloyd WRIGHT • Christopher HANCOX • Florence HOWARD

Wfpr 1.9.18

This is what our funnel volunteers get up to while you are out running!

Mark Reeves is one of our regular volunteers, but he failed to mention to us on Saturday that he was actually celebrating a milestone achievement! Mark has volunteered 25 times now, making him eligible for one of the much coveted purple parkrun t-shirts! So extra thanks goes out to Mark - your volunteering is much appreciated by us all.

We also had two running milestones being celebrated this week too. Firstly, we had Steven Smith; Steven was celebrating his 100th parkrun! What an achievement - well done! Then we had Mike Parker; Mike was celebrating his 50th parkrun. Huge well done to both of you - we hope to see you both when you are celebrating your next milestone parkrun.

It was also an extra special week this week as we welcomed a special visitor to Wyre Forest parkrun. Taekwondo athlete, Maddison Moore, from Team GB, joined us in the forest and she also volunteered! Maddison tail walked at our event which was also her first ever parkrun. Thank you so much for visiting us Maddison! We also learnt that Maddison's aunty, Helen Rutherford, is one of our parkrunners, so maybe Maddison will come back and visit us again, and run with 'aunty Helen' as we all now know her!

Wfpr 1.9.18

I shall now hand over to the far more capable, 11 year old Florence Howard, for the rest of todays run report!

Today was my second run of freedom now I'm 11. I can finally leave my mum far behind. Although today I didn't take on that opportunity!! I find it easier running with someone who has a similar pace. So definitely not my mum!!! (Sorry!) I did my current P.B a long time ago with my best friend, Eva, and whenever I wanted to stop she would be running and it would motivate you to keep running and achieve your best. Most of the time now in my mind I just have to imagine her running next to me. It's definitely encouraging when there is so many people around you cheering you on! Marshalls are always calling you on to keep going. What's inspiring is when other runners cheer you on too! This makes you feel great! When you come up Cardiac Hill you can hear everyone cheering you on! I don't know whether this is just me or relatable but when you run up that hill and you feel like you can't go on anymore and when you all of sudden hear cheering it definitely feels amazing like you've achieved something for the first time (if it is or if its not). For a few seconds you almost don't care what time you get as you go through the funnel. After that you just can't wait for those results! That email/ text, you just want to come quickly really badly as if your waiting for Christmas. Thank You to the Run Director, Marshalls and all the other Volunteers that make these parkruns possible.

Thank you Florence! What a fabulous run report! And if anyone else would like to write a run report for us, please get in touch.

This week 207 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 40 were first timers and 38 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part. Well done to you all, but especially our first timers; we hope to see you again soon. Two of the people celebrating PBs were Matthew Bailey and Chris Foster, both from Cleobury Mortimer Running Club. These two incredibly quick runners ran the whole course together, and crossed the line at the exact same moment to take positions 1 and 2. Well done to you both!

See you all soon!

See you all next week!

And we thanked Lisa BAILEY for volunteering on 50 separate occasions and said a sad farewell to Ann WEBBER who heads back home to Australia very soon (via Europe). We will miss you Ann and hope you come back and visit us in the future.

The Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers are in charge of proceedings this weekend and they have a theme - panto! You may remember that we had to cancel back in December due to heavy snowfall so we had to postpone the Hashers volunteer takeover until this weekend. But I know that we will all get in to the spirit of things regardless. Oh yes we will....!

See you on Saturday!
