06/07/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #199 and we have a PB Bell!!

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 199
6th July 2019

It was a deceptively warm morning this week as  215 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 36 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

Well done to these fabulous first time parkrunners:

Adrian JONES, Rio BILL, Luke WORTHINGTON, Joshua GLAZE, Richard DUDLEY, Andrew GLAZE, Annette ROBINSON, Jodi LEEK, Richard BROOMFIELD, Jessica DAVIS, Chloe PALMER, Joanne TILL, Polly FISHER-EDWARDS, Megan WARD, Nick INSULL, Charlotte STELLING

Congratulations particularly to the group that joined us from Tri-Energy for their C25k Graduation Run.

We were thrilled to be donated a PB Bell by Mark WALLACE and it was great to hear it being rung! Here is Archie GOULDING celebrating his new Personal Best!

The event was made possible by 29 generous volunteers, who gave up their Saturday morning so that we could all take part:

Today was my 150th time as a parkrun volunteer and I also got to run for the 35th time by offering to write this run report. There are a few jobs that you can do to earn a run credit and volunteer credit for on the same day!:

  • Pre-event set-up (after training is given)
  • First Timers Briefing (we have notes so it's very easy!)
  • Tail Walker
  • Post Event Close Down
  • Run Report Writer

Writing the Run Report isn't difficult. We just like to hear about your parkrun from your perspective! Then we add in the facts and figures and upload it - voila! Simple.

As I'm writing the run report this week I wanted to say a special THANK YOU to all our volunteers who have given up their time as we approach our 200th run! Where has all that time gone?? We have had 593 different volunteers who have given up their time on 4,803 different occasions! So that covers many hours of marshaling, time keeping and scanning among other things!

Have you volunteered yet? If not, ask yourself - why not? If it's because you're not sure what it entails or you think it's too difficult please come and talk to one of our team and we can explain what happens, you could shadow someone for a little while after your run. There are roles to suit everyone and it really is very rewarding to give something back.

www.wyreforest@parkrun is the address to get involved!

My goal is to now try and run 50 parkruns before the end of the year (I'm definitely playing catch up!) and I couldn't do that with out a fabulous team of core volunteers, regulars and Run Directors who have enabled me to lighten the load this year. Big thank you to fellow RDs Jo WATSON, Graeme ANDERSON, Andy GARLICK, Neil CRABBE, Mark REAVES and David STARKIE in particular!

And finally, you all know by now that we are lucky enough to have a junior parkrun starting soon! Thank you so much to Shirley THOMAS and her team for getting it off the ground! Wyre Forest juniors will hold it's inaugural run on Sunday July 21st at 9am and all children 4-14 are welcome to attend so get them registered and barcodes printed ready! I attended the practice run and my girls really enjoyed it, it's going to be great fun!

So, it's our 200th parkrun this Saturday (already??!) and we have chosen a theme of SUMMER which should be easy for everyone to join in with. Keep it simple and wear your sunglasses or go all out and come in your best Hawaiian shirt and Bermuda shorts! We love to see what you come up with is as always.

See you next time all,

Andie

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

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

The unofficial 'Volunteer of the week' award must go to Lindsay TILLSLEY for offering to dispose of some dog droppings on behalf of a late runner!! That really is going above and beyond the call of duty Lindsay!

#wyreforestparkrun151218 #kidderminsterfoodbank #foodbank

Well done to Chloe RICHARDSON who this week broke the Age Category Record for SW25-29 - this record now stands at a staggeringly quick 18:29 but we are pretty sure that the awesome Chloe will improve on that in the future!

And Congratulations also to Bev KERNOHAN who completed her milestone 50th parkrun with us!

A huge thank you to everyone who donated items to our collection for Kidderminster Foodbank. Graeme ANDERSON delivered the items this week and of course they were very grateful! Every time we ask you to help a cause we are always overwhelmed by your generosity, its incredibly humbling. So once again - thank you all.

Now we have a couple of busy weeks coming up! This Saturday (15th December) we have several important milestones and birthdays being celebrated including the legend that is Lindsay PULLEY's 80th Birthday!! And then the following Saturday (22nd December) it is our Christmas themed run. So please can I ask everyone to arrive nice and early for the briefings on these dates and bring something warm to wear beforehand if necessary. We also impart any important course safety information during the briefing so it is important to listen every week regardless.

If anyone would like to bring cakes/biscuits etc. for the Christmas run then that would also be appreciated! Thank you!

Really looking forward to some fab celebrations over the next couple of weeks with you all! Until then, best wishes (and fingers crossed for NO snow!)

We are now well in to 'holiday season' and we are finding less people are coming forward to volunteer. The core team are being quite stretched and we like to run too now and again! If all of you could help out just once every few months we would easily cover the roster so if you haven't done so yet - email us and get your name on the rota please! We meet at 8.30am and are usually finished around 10am. The address is wyreforesthelpers@parkrun.com to do your bit to keep your parkrun going, thank you.

We celebrated some special milestones again this week. Volunteer Neil CRABBE was on duty for the 50th time (no tshirts for volunteering past 25 but thanks certainly is still given!) and Rachel ROBINSON and Eleaner WALL both ran their 50th parkruns. Super kudos must be given to Eleanor as she is only 9!! Very impressive. Well done also to young Megan GATES who completed her 10th milestone. Go get your free t-shirts all!

Next week one of our RDs Graeme ANDERSON and Heather MORGAN of the Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers will be celebrating their 100th parkrun together! As you know if you are a regular at the forest on a Saturday morning, the Hashers likes to celebrate their milestone runs with a bit of fancy dress and Graeme has chosen a special theme of 'red dresses'! Yes that's 'dresses' as in womenswear. Are you brave enough to join it? It should be an entertaining morning - see you there!

Wyre Forest #146 – melting those records!

Thank you to the awesome Pippa WHITE (visiting us from Queen Elizabeth parkrun) for this week's run report!

This report has to start with the fantastic achievement of William RICHARDSON setting a blistering new course record of 15:47 on what must be the hottest parkrun at Wyre Forest yet. The ground conditions were spectacular and his PB sits with the other 36 PBs. Well done to everyone on such a hot day.

Untitled
One to watch: Will Richardson

Well done also to the 30 first time parkrunners including those from TriEnergy graduating from couch to 5k and picking a difficult (ie not flat) first parkrun to complete in the temperatures that should have had us all basking lazily in the sun instead. 11 completed their second parkrun with 7 new PBs and in all 77 of the 217, or approximately 1/3rd were on 10 or fewer parkruns – how lovely to be part of this way to spend a Saturday morning and I wonder if these are more superlative records.

It was my first time at Wyre Forest but this is on my list to come and do again, if only to conquer the hills properly. Drawn to the area by a cool weather decision in cold early April to run the inaugural Cleobury Mortimer 10k on the Sunday, I persuaded my lovely host to show off her beautiful ‘local’ as a leg stretch before the event. For those reading and considering attending, it’s a super one lapper (my fav) with enough shade to be welcome on a hot day, cheerful volunteers and a most splendid café for breakfast and milkshake.

Any parkrun with milestone runs is also fantastic. Well done to juniors Bryn JENKINS and Jack LINNEY on their 10th parkruns. Sandra PEDERSEN completed her 100th and Steve KIMBER his 50th. https://flic.kr/p/K3NA9k May all your links go live soon.

Congratulations Sandra!

As well as the runners, thanks to those who put their name on the volunteer roster. This event happened because 28 people gave up time and energy to help. As I was, of course, running slowly to save my legs, here are a few pictures of those high viz heroes.

And he kept it quiet but...it seems that this week was Graeme ANDERSON's 25th parkrun as a volunteer so Graeme can now collect a purple t-shirt for his collection. Thank you Graeme - your time is always appreciated.

And finally - huge kudos to all the Tri Energy athletes who joined us to complete their RunFit graduation. The club is going from strength to strength and we can't wait to see more of their members joining us as regular parkrunners.

#wyreforestparkrun #125 #ianandcarole

 

Our 'parkrun stars' this week were Tri Energy members Ian BELL and Carole HENDER who both ran their 50th parkruns. We are told that their dog Jasper has 'only' done 45 parkruns so he made up for it by running back to cross the finish line with both his owners! We will let you off for crossing the finish line twice just once Jasper! Well done to you all and thank you for all your generosity when volunteering on many an occasion too.

Last Saturday I volunteered for the role of Run Director. Not a role I would normally volunteer for but one that I am really happy to have done. I would like to thank the core team for their help & assistance over the last couple of weeks as they trained me for the role & a big THANK YOU to Andie FORD for her advice & help.

After being terrified by doing the run brief with lots of announcements (only forgot one) the parkrun itself passed without incident. Timekeepers were spot on & I don't think there were any missed scans so thank you to you guys.

*The announcement I missed was for the parkrun on the 9th December which is a club take over by Wyre forest hash house harriers & their theme is panto. So expect a colourful & fun parkrun. *EDIT: check the weather reports - snow is forecast - sadly, we may have to cancel this :-(

Once again a thank you from me to all the volunteers & I will be RD'ing again.

Thanks - Mark.

16/10/2017 Wyre Forest parkrun #112 Gremlins in the system….

 

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 112
14th October 2017

This week 195 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 24 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

#Wyreforestparkrun112

We welcomed tourists from Wolverhampton, Worcester, Peterborough, Lancaster, Mile End and France!

Huge congratulations and bucket loads of kudos to the fabulous kids from TriEnergy who joined us this week - many of them doing their first 5k parkrun. It was great to see so many of them enjoying themselves which is exactly what it's all about!

And we wished 'Happy 50th Birthday' to the lovely Rachael SHEPHERD - a Wyre Forest regular runner and volunteer. Rachael was presented with a Wyre Forest parkrun apricot shirt for her birthday from friend Vanessa HUGHES. A perfect gift for a perfect occasion! Well done ladies.

The event was made possible by 31 volunteers:

Dave SMITH • Philip SHELDON • Phil WEBER • Anna WEBER • Andrea FORD • Andrew T DAVIES • Jake GOOD • Rowan BAILEY • Mark REAVES • Neil CRABBE • Adrian FORD • Andrew GARLICK • Carole EVANS • Martin BIGGS • Lisa GARLICK • Emma MORGAN • Heather MORGAN • Sandra PEDERSEN • Ozzy BESWICK • Dave BENNETT • Lindsay TILLSLEY • Charlotte BESWICK • Reiss SMITH • Sam HAWKSWELL • Jayne HILL • Ryan MORGAN • Ronald LYNES • Oliver MARSHALL • James PAYTON • Richard WESTWOOD • Sarah WESTWOOD

As you may have realised - we had a problem with one of our scanning units on Saturday. We are still unclear as to what went wrong but it seemed to have doubled up some runners and totally missed others... as a technophobe I can't work out what happened but hopefully it won't happen again as we've had to manually input all the missing results!

Needless to say that if you still haven't received your result - please get in touch with your (approximate if not sure) time/position and barcode number. We don't want you to lose a credit for your run so we will add it in for you. Thanks to everyone for your time and patience whilst we sorted this out.

On a personal note - we love to see our core team runners actually running at parkrun rather than volunteering so congratulations to Run Director Jo WATSON on being first female finisher this week! It doesn't matter where you finish in parkrun as long as you finish but Jo knocked over a minute off her PB so we are pretty proud of her!

#Wyreforestparkrun112

We had a lovely full roster this week which meant that Jo was able to run and it would be good if this could continue for the future. Please don't leave volunteering to the same people each week, we only ask you to do it now and again - if everyone did this our roster would be full weeks in advance and my job would be much easier.

If you know someone who is nervous about volunteering, what about bringing them along with you? It really is very simple (even when gremlins get in the scanners!) and we will make them feel very welcome.

#Wyreforestparkrun112

Some of you will have taken part in the Birmingham International marathon and the Great Birmingham Run (half marathon) on Sunday - we truly hope you all got the results you wanted! We were thrilled to hear that our Course Record holder William RICHARDSON finished in first place in the Great Birmingham Run and his sister Chloe was first female!! We are so pleased and proud - Congratulations from all your friends and parkrun family at Wyre Forest.

Finally - a couple of friendly reminders about under 11s and dogs! Under 11s MUST be within arms reach of an adult at all times - this means that if we check the results they will be next to an adult in the results too! We have the right to remove unaccompanied Under 11s from the results - clearly this is not something we want to do so please keep up with them or hold them back. Thank you.

And dogs must be kept under control at all times during the run - one dog per runner on a short leash. This also applies around the finish funnel area please where we have lots going on and lots of people tired and trying to get their breath back. Once you have finished your run it would help us if dogs were taken away from the finish funnel area where space is somewhat restricted and the volunteer team are concentrating on accurate results recording - I hope that makes sense.

And finally - a heads up! There have been a few parking tickets issued recently (including to some of our volunteers sadly). A valid parking ticket must be shown or you run the risk of getting a parking fine. The Forestry Commission really want you to support the forest and buy the discovery pass. It's £30 per year and you can put two registration numbers on it so it's a no brainer for regular runners. There are plans afoot to set up a 'customer service point' in the near future which will mean no queuing in the café to buy passes/trail maps etc. The sale of discovery passes and parking charges help pay for this and other developments in the forest.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wyre Forest parkrun Results Page.

So that's 99 parkruns completed in what seems like the blink of an eye and this Saturday we go in to treble figures. We couldn't pass by the opportunity for a little bit of 'extra' fun though so we are inviting those of you who like a silly challenge to pull on your pyjamas and get a 'PJ-PB'! And for those who have mentioned that you don't own any nightwear, you still have time to borrow some!

Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday for the pyjama party and "don't forget your barcode" of course.
