The press called today ‘Super Saturday’ and what a super Saturday it was as 242 of us completed this weeks parkrun on such a beautiful morning too. As it was the last Saturday before Christmas - many entered the spirit of Wyre Forest parkrun and dressed in suitable Christmas attire. Where else would you see a Christmas present running alongside Christmas trees and a Christmas pud? Even some of the dogs came dressed up. There were Santa’s and reindeer in a sea of red and green running through the wyre forest. One lucky child had their very own sleigh ride this morning!

As 242 of us ran around the forest we were cheered on by our wonderful volunteers. These are the people that make parkrun possible each week. So if you have not yet volunteered - make it a New Years resolution to give it a go. It’s easy and you are giving something back into parkrun. Two volunteers today gained their 25 volunteer badges. They were the wonderful Sandra PEDERSON cheering us on as we ran and the wonderful Debbie HYRONS who was issuing us with our finish tokens. Well done both and a huge THANK YOU TO YOU BOTH.

Some special marshal mentions this morning must go to the lovely girls at the 4K mark for singing jiggle bells so well as we passed them and to Mason the reindeer for encouraging us on before we ran up cardiac hill.

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.

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

24/11/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun #167 Will sets a new course record

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 167
24th November 2018

This week 185 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 18 were first timers and 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

#Wyreforestparkrun241118

Congratulations to our fab first timers:

Shaun GLOVER, Hattie JACKSON, Jo O'SHAUGHNESSY, Andrew GREEN, Hannah JORDAN, Laura KIRKPATRICK, Kirsty HARVEY

The event was made possible by 27 fantastic volunteers:

Vicky HONEYBOURNE • Mark WALLACE • Andrea FORD • Vicki HULME • Andrew GARLICK • Katy BROOME • Duncan STARKIE • Carole EVANS • Lisa GARLICK • Aran MOORE • Sandra PEDERSEN • Lindsay TILLSLEY • John FRANCIS • Deborah NEWBOULD • David FISH • Anthony NEWBOULD • Paul SCURRELL • Adam SCURRELL • Sharron JEPSON • Pauline SMITH • Gill JONES • Debbie HYRONS • Jeremy FERGUSON • Katherine EVANS • Kathleen BREAKWELL • Paul SKELLERN • Steve REDDING

#Wyreforestparkrun241118

Thank you as always to our volunteers, without them we have no parkrun!

Well, what a morning!! It's always exciting when we see that our course record holder Will RICHARDSON is running as we know that he will set a fast pace. Will came within 2 seconds of his CR last week and so we knew he'd be hungry to try and beat it this week.

For those that don't know, Will (of Birchfield Harriers) has been the Course Record holder at Wyre Forest since our inaugural run back in August 2015! Since then he has beaten it on 5 occasions and taken nearly 30 seconds off it.

#Wyreforestparkrun241118

And this weekend made that six times as he took another second off his previous best to mean that the new Course Record now stands at 15:46 - that's 5:04 min/mile pace which is pretty staggering from where I'm sitting!! It was also great to see the whole family running too as sister Chloe, mum Janette and Dad Paul (who got a PB!) also joined in the fun.

#Wyreforestparkrun241118

Well done Will - can't wait to see what you do next.

We also celebrated another course record holder. Ronald LYNES (of Kidderminster and Stourport Athletics Club) holds the age category record at Wyre Forest for VM75-79 (29:23!) and this week he completed his milestone 50th parkrun. Well done Ron!!

Now, a couple of our parkrunners completed their 100th parkruns and didn't tell us!!! But the results aren't so shy so CONGRATULATIONS to Peter CORNISH and Liz HINTON on your 100th parkruns!! I had to go back into the Flickr archives for your photos (sorry both!)

If you're celebrating a milestone - don't be shy and tell us so that we can give you the applause you deserve.

Looking forward to another fabulous event this Saturday, see you there and 'don't forget your barcodes!'

Welcome to the following first-time parkrunners who were all marvellous!:

Danny COATES, Steve COATES, Rachel LAMINE, William BLAKEMORE, Jo PARKER, Oliver BLAKEMORE, Jo UNWIN, Jason BLAKEMORE, Helen AKE

 

Congratulations to youngster Tegan SKELLERN who earned her milestone 10 t-shirt this week and to our awesome Annette MORE who ran her 100th parkrun! Annette told me that she only started running 4 years ago after husband David said she'd couldn't run to save her life! Annette has certainly turned the tables though as David is a fair way behind on 72 parkruns!

We also welcomed a rather awesome tourist this week. From Severn Bridge parkrun we were joined by Vic 'nskruff AINSWORTH who completed the course (and her 102nd parkrun) on crutches!! Anyone who has struggled up towards the finish line on Cardiac Hill will have nothing but respect for the determination this must have taken! Thanks for coming Vic, we hope you enjoyed your visit.

Wyre Forest parkrun #165 Sasha’s Run Report

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 165
10th November 2018

We have another guest run report writer this week, ten year old Sasha GUEST. You may remember her sister Aneka's run report from a few weeks ago... well this one is equally brilliant! Here's what Sasha has to say:

My name is Sasha Guest and I am 10 years old. This week I ran and got a time of 35.34 – not my best time but I had a stich. It is really freaky but my identical twin sister Aneka GUEST who was walking the Post Event Close Down with my mum, also got a stich at the same time!

My dad Keith GUEST got 35.41 but as Aneka mentioned in her earlier report, he keeps eating the Christmas cakes he has been making for Christmas and that is slowing him down. He said he got a bad time because he waited for me but I am not sure. Ha ha ha.

Peter CARTWRIGHT got another great time of 23.56. The Latte and croissants he always has after the run keep him going. We always go for breakfast afterwards in a big group.

Matt SUTTON you are definitely getting better. Do you think the sneaky extra run in the week is helping? Are you trying to beat anyone in particular!!!! He he he.

Sandra HOWARD well done at 38.17. Mum says she will try and keep up with you next week.

Gill JONES and Debbie HYRONS walked this week because they were doing a big run on Sunday – hope you both did well. Mum says your times are getting so good.

Jan LAW has just come back to parkrun and she decided to walk this time. I think she had too many clothes on as she was boiling as she crossed the line. She won’t do that next week when she runs.

Aneka Guest said it was good doing the Post Event Close Down as you start walking with the tail Walker which was Sharon JEPSON and as you get further you pick up lots of volunteers who are the Marshalls on route which makes it fun. I might do that one day.

See you next week.
Sasha Guest

Brilliant report thank you Sasha.

This week 227 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 43 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

27/11/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun #163 halloween spooky spectacular

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 163
27th October 2018

We have another guest run report writer this week - hurrah for the fabulous Imogen GUNSON for her account of our Halloween themed run: enjoy!

With a clear crisp morning for a forest run we arrived to what should be an excellent event, enhanced by many runners, walkers, canine friends and volunteers in some impressive Halloween fancy dress!

Halloween2018parkrun

A first timers welcome came from Neil CRABBE with much encouragement to the young first timer for their first finisher aspirations! With reminders that in my experience rather unusually it’s just one lap we gathered with the masses for Andie’s main briefing - foregoing the blue and white hi vis for a pumpkin I think we could still clearly spot her!

With clear to follow tracks we set off on the downhill, however just shy of a mile in a local discussing with their running partner that it was all uphill now have me something to look forward to - a stinker of a hill to finish, and he wasn’t joking I’d say!

Beautiful forestry surroundings are always a pleasure to run in, but I wonder how many courses can boast overhead zip wires, quite odd to look up mid run and find someone hovering above!

To keep with the fancy dress theme as we learnt from Facebook... the trick is remembering your barcode, the treat is parkrun :-)

In total 231 parkrunners walked, jogged or ran of whom a huge 50 achieved new PBs, well done all! Today’s milestones were achieved by Kevin LEWIS into the ’100 club’, Lee ASHTON, Helen ROSEWARNE and Sam MUSCUTT into the ’50 club’ and Hannah BOWLES into the ‘junior 10 club’ – I’m sure they’ll be looking forward to proudly wearing their respective black, red and white shirts before long.

Today we were joined by 13 first timers who hopefully enjoyed themselves so much they’ll return and maybe even catch the tourist bug, as I was one of 27 tourists today.

Final note always has to be a thank you to the hi-vis heroes of which we had 32 volunteers today, we really couldn’t enjoy our run without you!

20/10/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun #162 Aneka’s Run Report

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 162
20th October 2018

This week 231 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 27 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

Aneka GUEST was amongst the 231 finishers and I think her run report is one of the best ones we've ever had - hope you enjoy it too!!

My name is Aneka Guest and I am 10 years old. Today I helped my mum do the Post Close Down which means you pick up all the signs showing people which way to go and how many k's they have run. I don't run very often but my sister Sasha runs and today she ran in 32.46 minutes. My dad Keith GUEST could not catch her up and ran in 33.42. He will have to stop eating the Christmas cakes he keeps making if he wants to beat her!!!

Today we saw a sad incident. Eloise (who I know) and her cousin were running with their parents when a dog off a lead ran over to a dog on a lead. The dog off the lead then caused the cousin to fall over and hurt himself. The cousin is only about seven years old. He was crying. Anyway he managed to carry on running after a bit of support. Eloise PARMENTER managed to carry on running and got a time of 36.26 which I thought was good considering she was upset and had stopped for ages.

My uncle Tony JUDGE loves the parkrun but he has suffered a leg injury and has only just got back into it. He got a time of 31.48.

Lee ASHTON is doing his 50th run next week but quite a few of his friends won't be there because of the holidays. Lee's son Oscar ASHTON was running well too. Oscar ran with his grandmother. Three generations is so nice.

Peter CARTWRIGHT you are getting better all the time even though you eat a lot of cake. Will any of your friends catch you up. I think Lee Ashton is trying.

Jacqueline SUTTON, my mum loved running with you a few weeks ago because you got her a new PB. You always look nice when you are running.

Mum saw lots of friends from her cycle club - Gill JONES, Debbie HYRONS, Luan WALL and her daughter Eleanor WALL, Sandra HOWARD and her daughter Florence HOWARD. Mum says if anyone is interested they cycle on Wednesday mornings from 9.30 - 11.30 at Stourport Cycle Club. Also well done to Gill JONES and Debbie HYRONS for another P.B.

The people in red dresses looked great but not sure who they were ; maybe Cleobury Mortimer Running Club? (They were in fact the Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers celebrating Fiona STARKIE's 100th parkrun and Debbie JACKSON's 50th parkrun - well done girls! - Andie)

There was a big crowd walking with the Tail Walkers today which was quite good fun.

I hope you enjoyed my Run Report.

Aneka Guest

Well I certainly did - I was with my 9 year old and 7 year old daughters at the back of the parkrun today with Aneka and her Mum and enjoyed it immensely!!

Congratulations also to Terry (Tez) BLUNN who also ran his milestone 50th parkrun this week.

Just a reminder for you all that this Saturday coming (October 27th) is our Halloween themed parkrun so please dig out those costumes again. It's one of the highlights of the parkrun calendar here at Wyre Forest and we've seen some super scary sights over the last few years!

halloween parkrun1

And a kind reminder before I sign off that if you wish to receive an official time for your parkrun that you must bring your barcode. It is unfair to ask (or pressure) volunteers to add your result in afterwards. Once you have finished your parkrun we then have to process the results and adding numbers in manually takes up time (particularly when the parkrun results server is at capacity at 10am!) and can be a slow process. We want to get on with our weekend too. No one at Wyre Forest parkrun is paid, and we love doing what we do but all we ask is that you bring your official parkrun barcode to make things easy for us. Thank you.

29/09/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun – 100 club member Richard tells us about his parkrun addiction!

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 159
29th September 2018

Richard AMOS of Bridgnorth Running Club ran his 100th parkrun this week! And volunteered to write the Run Report too. It's a good one - but be warned, it may give you ideas!

Can anybody reading this remember Saturday mornings before parkrun? I struggle but I’m pretty sure they involved sleeping in and probably recovering from Friday night. Things certainly changed for me when I was introduced to parkrun.

 

My first parkrun was at Telford on the 22/08/15 good event, decent course, I really enjoyed it. My first at Wyre Forest was just my 4th parkrun and also happened to be your 4th event. WOW what a route, beautiful scenery an amazing downhill and that hill, oh that hill! I was hooked.

 

One thing I remember from that first run, there were fewer runners then, there seemed to be sections I was running on my own, the thought crossed my mind on more than few occasions “have I gone the wrong way?” But what a challenging course!

 

image001

Over the next 2 years I kept coming back, mixing it up with other local parkrun’s, my first taste of parkrun tourism. Joining Bridgnorth Running Club added other elements to my parkrun experience whether it was trying to set new PB’s, improve course best times or push other club members along! It also gave an opportunity to help others on their journey to parkrun through the club’s couch to 5k program.

Then this year my girlfriend took our parkrun addiction to a new level!
She decided “we needed to do more tourism, we need to get our cow-cowl, we need to complete the alphabet, we need to complete The Compass Challenge, The regionnaires for The West Midlands, stop watch bingo” and about a dozen more challenges.

 

So we planned our year ahead, we started fairly local, then moved further afield, our friends got involved, we always find somewhere for breakfast after. If we went away for a weekend, we tied into a parkrun, somebody’s birthday we did a parkrun, we booked a holiday to Copenhagen so obviously we did a parkrun, we went to Jersey just to parkrun “it’s the only J!”. parkrun-day was now starting at 6am and not 7:30am. We have a serious parkrun addiction!

 

It’s been an absolutely brilliant adventure! So, after 21 different parkrun’s this year, 44 in total. Only 1 hill compares to Wyre Forest and that’s Ashton Court which is basically 2.5k uphill an amazing 2.5k downhill, honourable mention to Ludlow as theirs is a bit of a bugger. Arrow Valley claim to have a “cardiac hill” if anybody finds it, please let me know!!

When there is a milestone for us to celebrate we always come back to Wyre Forest. In our group this year we’ve celebrated a few milestones we’ve had 100th’s, 50th’s, 25 volunteering with only one place to share these occasions and that’s Wyre Forest, it’s our home course, the best course, with an amazing core team, great cafe, fantastic marshals everything about it is brilliant and that’s why we always come back time and time again!

This week I was lucky enough to complete my 100th run with about 20 members of Bridgnorth Running Club, 2 of them they pretty much dragged me up the hill for my best time this year, bit off my PB but I’ll get there again one day! It was a double celebration as fellow BRC member Sharron RICHARDS completed her 50th run. The course was as testing as ever, the marshals were epic and encouraging as always, the breakfast and coffee were very well earned as were the cakes and glasses of Prosecco we bought with us!

Back to tourism next week but Wyre Forest parkrun you’re my favourite and I’ll be back again
I love it here!

-Richard

Congratulations also to junior Hannah LUPTON who completed her 10th parkrun
