parkrun

1st August 2018 - My parkrun Journey 2018 9so far) by Stuart Barton

My parkrun journey 2018






I never went out on New Year's I was in bed just after hearing Big Ben strike Midnight!

So here's my year so far parkrun style.

Monday 1st Jan 2018 at 09:00
Castle Park Bishops Stortford 26:25 mostly grass.
I met a friend form Ware Joggers at the car park, we had not arranged to meet. Always nice to meet a friend at parkrun. She decided to run her second of the day with me as well so off we went to Chelmsford Central 27:59 loads of people a mix of tarmac and grass.

Saturday 6th Jan 2018.
Ally Pally 28:46 Hilly is all I remember they were doing the winter course.

Saturday 13th Jan 2018.
Fritton Lake 27:00 a beautiful run around the lake some mad people were having a morning swim when I arrived, Then off to Southwold for beer tasting.

Saturday 20th Jan 2018.
My home run of Wanstead Flats 26:59 always a favourite of mine.

Saturday 27th Jan 2018.
Walthamstow 27:01 not enough ELR do this come on guys its local and can be fast.

Saturday 3rd Feb 2018
Finsbury Park 25:53 just down the A406 or easy by tube all tarmac a little hilly.

Saturday 10th Feb 2018.
Colchester Castle 26:41 very hilly, the day we did this the paths were frozen so they changed it a little as down by the river was slippery.

Saturday 17th Feb 2018.
Hockley Woods 27:28 truly stunning this morning, the mist was rolling through the woods as we ran around, A steep hill towards the end.

Saturday 24th Feb 2018.
Kesgrave 25:31 my first ever parkrun was here, I drove JW and Fi and we met my nephew. Mostly grass the last 1K is in the woods followed by a sprint (lol) to the finish line.

Saturday 3rd March 2018.
Upton Court 33:04 the day of the snow not many events on today but JH SD and myself made the trip. Nice views of Windsor Castle, mainly grass, can be muddy.

Saturday 10th March 2018.
Burnham-on-Crouch 26:37 a new tourist is born welcome to the club Janet Bywater.

Saturday 17th March 2018. Queen Elizabeth 30:00 not a great start to the day as someone decided to drive into my car at 06:00 in the morning. No time to hang around so swapped numbers and KH SD and JW and I drove down south, A very hilly run with really sticky mud.

Saturday 24th March 2018.
25:56 Clacton Seafront. I like runs along the prom but this one was 3 loops with a steep hill, will be a good summer one I think.

Saturday 31st March 2018.
Hackney 25:14 my car was in for a service so Maya picked me up and we did Hackney nice flat course. Always meet someone from ELR here.

Saturday 7th April 2018.
Haverhill in 27:19. A very muddy run around football pitches, 3 laps as well, Good thing about this is my best mate lives a couple of miles away so a hot shower and a big breakfast was guaranteed.

Saturday 14th April 2018.
Felixtstowe 24:48 I was staying in Ipswich so I wanted to finish Suffolk off. A very flat run along the sea front this will be a PB course for lots of people. KH did this with me she was going to do Ipswich but a run by the seaside changed her mind.

Saturday 21st April 2018.
South Woodham Ferrers (ferrets) 26:13 FI and myself ran this, this was a nice run along the sea wall. Slight wardrobe malfunction for me and a blister for Fi, also the funniest service in a cafe ever.

Saturday 28th April 2018.
Jersey 26:05. A very early start and a flight from Southend JW FI KH and Bernard had a great day, loads of walking afterwards exploring the island, before heading home to medal night.

Saturday 5th May 2018.
Harwich 27:07 my first camping trip of the year, I met Fi and SS here, another run along the seafront.

Saturday 12th may 2018.
Alness 26:42 the only parkrun I have ever stopped halfway to take photos, truly stunning. Scotland if you get the weather is just amazing.

Saturday 19th May 2018.
Mersea Island 26:39 another one near the sea, JW fi and myself ran this. I would recommend this one as the whole island is worth exploring.

Saturday 26th May 2018.
Vogrie 26;51 what can be said about getting up at 00:00 picking up JW and Fi then driving for 7.5 hours, a quick stop at the Angel of the North, another stop at the border then 30 mins kip in the car park before the run, Then the drive home.

Saturday 2nd June 2018.
Zary, Poland in 27:11 the end of the alphabet challenge JW SD Fi and myself had a great weekend in Poland and Berlin, the highlight must be the David Hasselhoff museum.

Saturday 9th June 2018.
Westmill 59:48 another camping trip, I tail walked this one with a guy who only did one lap and smoked 2 fags as he walked around. Very hilly course a little gem in my opinion with a great breakfast place for afterwards.

Saturday 16th June 2018.
Great Dunmow 26:06 A pretty little park just up past Stansted Essex keeps getting new parkruns will I ever get them all done?

Saturday 30th June 2018.
Victoria Dock 25:10 PB course written all over this one, it had the benefit of its very own cable car as well. Remember to check that it’s on before you go as it seems to be called off a lot because of other events at the dock.

Saturday 7th July 2018.
Colney Lane 26:53 in the ground of Norwich UNI, loved this one I bumped into a guy I have not seen in years.

Saturday 21st July 2018.
Holkham 26:15 another in Norfolk absolutely stunning, set in the grounds of Holkham Hall.

Saturday 28th July 2018.
Southwark 26:16 I picked local as I was off to volunteer on free cycle London, 3 laps in a great park, I have driven past here so many times but never ventured in.

Saturday 2nd June - Parkrun Tourists complete the alphabet challenge

ELR travellers Stuart Barton, Fiona Critchley, Shaun DeSena and Jonathan Wooldridge have been travelling the globe to compete their parkrun alphabet challenge. Today this has been completed with a final trip to Zary in Poland. Furthermore the challenge has been taken to a whole new level by Fiona who has the ELR club record on each of the events in her alphabet. This is a fantastic and unique achievement.



Travelling to eight countries, spanning three continents the globe trotters have gone to some extreme lengths of endurance, some might say of stupidity, to get to the events eg weekends away, holidays, honeymoon, and 18 hr road trips.

Whilst parkrun tourism is becoming ever more popular, and with Andrew Howard conducting much of his tourism by bike, it wont be long before this pioneering group of four grows; but will he make it all the way to Zary on two wheels?

parkrun

East London Runners participate in local parkruns, mainly at Wanstead Flats, Valentines Park, Hackney Marshes and Walthamstow. ELR athletes also occasionally report back from some of the dozens of parkrun events elsewhere in London or the UK.


Because parkrun is 5k, the events are ideal for beginner runners wishing to build up to the distance of around 5 miles required to run regularly with ELR. Since parkrun is weekly and takes place early in the day (Saturday at 9am), the events are ideal for maintaining fitness without being a pressure on time. Finally, because parkrun is not tied to any club, the events are a chance to tap into a running community outside of ELR.


The parkrun website provides a wealth of information about the parkrun family and includes weekly results, together with a wealth of statistics derived from them.


Long-term parkrunners are awarded with "50", "100" and "250" t-shirts on completing that number of events. The prestigious "250" t-shirt was claimed in July 2016 by Scott McMillan who completed the majority of his runs at Finsbury Park and Wanstead Flats before joining ELR.
