Cleobury Mortimer 10k Race

We have been asked to share information on an upcoming local race: Cleobury Mortimer 10k

"After the massive success of the first Cleobury Mortimer 10k we are back bigger and better this year and we hope you will all join us. Whether you are a serious runner looking to take on the challenge of Ron hill, or a fun runner who wants to soak up the atmosphere of a well supported race, or you may even like to dress up as a dragon. Just make sure you are on the starting line on July 7th for another great event. The event sold out last year so we have added 50 more places which are filling quickly! So don't miss out and get signed up before this sells out".

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

04/08/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun #151 Gav’s Run Report

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 151
4th August 2018

This week's run report is written by the man who is usually behind the camera - Gavin MILLICHIP.

Gav is an important member of our parkrun family as not only does he take most of our photographs, he has completed 50 stints as a volunteer today and ALSO completed his milestone 50th parkrun.

#Wyreforestparkrun
Photo: The man who's usually behind the camera, Gav MILLICHIP

Thank you so much for everything Gav, take it away:

It was another great park run Saturday, a little on the warm side but a much better weather extreme than the weather we had earlier in the year that caused multiple park run cancellations.

This week 221 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 49 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

Well done to Neil CRABBE who took charge of his first parkrun as Run Director, he oversaw the event & ran it to it`s usual high standard.

It was my 50th parkrun & also my 50th volunteer appearance, (doing the run report counts as one) so not all are as high profile or daunting as Neil`s Run Director role!!

#Wyreforestparkrun

There are several roles you can do as a volunteer and still get to run on the day, (course set up & token sorting for example). It`s really important to keep the volunteer roster looking healthy especially at this time of year when people are on holiday etc. Please have a look at the roster & see if you can help out, you still get the social aspect of the parkrun without the pain of cardiac hill, it`s a win win!

That said Cardiac Hill has lost a bit of it`s fear factor for me having gone up CMRC`S RON HILL during their recent 10k race, it`s painful!!! If you're into extreme pain and horrendous hills ask the Cleobury crew to take you on a run up it (not recommended)!

Well done to Mathew BAILEY & Richard FAIN who had great 'race' to the finish line, finishing in 1st and 2nd places and both recording new PB`S. To get a PB is impressive enough but to do so in the baking conditions of Saturday is amazing, well done to you both & all other runners who completed your parkrun. Having completed my 50th park run,(all at the Wyre) I`m going to try a few other local parkruns now, though I doubt very much though that neither the excellent course or the fantastic atmosphere at Wyre forest could ever be bettered.

Thank you to all involved with the Wyre Forest parkrun, all your hard work is very much appreciated!!!

Aw...thanks Gav! And thank you to you too as without our volunteers there would be no parkrun at all. Speaking of which....

This event was made possible by 28 marvellous volunteers:

Ian DENNIS • Nigel GARDNER • Lucy BROOKS • Frances GEDDIE • Andrea FORD • Neil CRABBE • Adrian FORD • David STARKIE • Duncan STARKIE • Carole EVANS • Lisa BIGGS • Martin BIGGS • Allyson MCCLUNG • Andy MORGAN • Gavin MILLICHIP • Rachael SHEPHERD • Molly MATHEWS • Ryan MORGAN • Daren JACKSON • Debbie HYRONS • Jeremy FERGUSON • Linda MALLINSON • Ben HOBSON • James PAYTON • Sarah BOWLES • Steve REDDING • Eleanor BOWLES • Hannah BOWLES

We hope you enjoyed your first parkrun and we will see you all again very soon.

Joining Gav for his milestone run this week were two lovely ladies... Sandra HOWARD was also running her 50th parkrun so now earns the famous red (free!) '50' tee-shirt and Natalie CARR (and friends from Bridgnorth Running Club) played tribute to our beautiful forest by dressing up like a tree for her 100th parkrun. Absolutely perfect. Well done all of you.

See you all next week!

25/11/2017 Wyre Forest parkrun #118 Awesome Andy volunteers for the 100th time

 

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 118
25th November 2017

This week 242 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 48 were first timers and 31 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

We welcomed tourists from Bournemouth, Yorkshire and Worcester this week. Lots of Worcester Black Pear Joggers were participating as part of their club championships - we hope the course proved a success for you all!

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers:

Nigel GARDNER • Mark WALLACE • Andrea FORD • Andrew T DAVIES • Lisa BAILEY • Mark REAVES • Adrian FORD • David STARKIE • Andrew GARLICK • Duncan STARKIE • Carole EVANS • Martin BIGGS • Lisa GARLICK • Andy MORGAN • Tom ANDERSON • Tina SMITH • Pete SMITH • John FRANCIS • Ian BELL • Pauline SMITH • Matt JACKSON • Debbie JACKSON • James PAYTON

We said a special 'thank you' to our awesome Andy GARLICK who this week volunteered for the 100th time! He is the first of our core team to reach this amazing milestone. There are no more official milestone clubs after 25 for volunteers (or free t-shirts!) but I still think this deserves a special mention. Without regular volunteers like Andy we really wouldn't have a parkrun - Andy was one of our founding members from Cleobury Mortimer Running Club and we are incredibly grateful to him for all the time he puts in.

And another important volunteer also reached an official milestone as Nigel GARDNER joined the Volunteer25 Club. thank you Nigel for all the time you give to help us out!

And Ruby THOMAS joined the Junior10 Club this week so will soon be sporting a special white 10 t-shirt! Well done Ruby!

Well done to this week's fantastic first timers!:

Ollie OLIVER, Tom BENTLEY, Sam BURR, Steve HINE, Edward WESTBURY, Nathan FITTER, Gary FITTER, Richard CANNON, Nina FINCH, Joseph HADLEY, Alex HADLEY, Katie PICKERSGILL, Mark PICKERSGILL, Eve HADLEY, Paul HADLEY, Alanie PARFITT

Some dates for your diary:
On December 9th the Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers (the drinking club with a running problem!) will be doing a full volunteer takeover! And they have a theme (of course!) which is 'Panto'. Oh no it isn't......Oh yes it is! Etc....! Sounds like brilliant fun so please join in!

Then on the following Saturday we will be collecting items to donate to Kidderminster Foodbank. Obviously this is a fabulous time of year for many of us but we mustn't forget that sadly, some families in the area are not so lucky.

foodbank

The sort of items that we'd appreciate are long life items - cans, jars, UHT milk, juice in cartons, tinned fruit, toiletries, washing powder etc. and it would also be nice to include some Christmas items where possible (sweets, chocolates, Christmas puddings etc.) A volunteer from the foodbank has offered to come and collect the items on that date (16th December) and to thank us - so lets make it a large collection! thanks all.

Saturday 23rd December will be our final parkrun before Christmas and a big celebration! So lets get those Santa suits, reindeer ankler headbands and tinsel garlands out and make it a sparkly spectacular! Cakes and mince pies are also very welcome!!

And of course as well as all that - Don't forget your Barcode!

Thank you all for continuing to support our wonderful parkrun and make it the amazing event that it is.

See you on Saturday!

Thank you to the very many of you who made donations this week towards the purchase of our own AED.

Unfortunately, Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in the UK. With the use of an AED (automated external defibrillator) within the first 3-5 minutes of someone's heart stopping their chances of survival are as high as 60% (compared to just 5%-7% after this timeframe). You can see why it is important that all 5k parkrun events have an AED unit on site at all times.

We are incredibly grateful to the generosity shown by you all and we can now purchase our AED. Once we have it we will need to of course be trained on its use and CPR. We know that we have many expert personnel within our parkrun community who can help us with this training and have already had some offers - so thank you! Once I know more about the time of this training we will open it up to core team volunteers first and then the wider parkrun family.

Once again - thank you all!

Next week we will hopefully be celebrating a milestone 100th parkrun as a volunteer for one of our core team - watch this space!

See you then
Andie
