Flaxmere parkrun Run Report, Event #81, 1st May, 2021

Flaxmere parkrun Event number #81, 1st May 2021

Kindly written by Nikola Bass

This year autumn has bought some very settled weather, however this week saw the first major frost of the year. Saturday dawned fresh with the perfect temperature for a run – cool but warmer than expected following the earlier frosts – and bringing with it new hopes and aspirations for our next parkrun.

Congratulations Darren and Louis on completing your 50 parkruns milestones!

This week 57 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom there were 6 first timers. As John Bingham said ‘The miracle is not that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.’ Just showing up is a win as we all make our own way around the fabulous Flaxmere Park track with the brown and red autumn leaves disappearing underfoot. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part today.

Well done to the eight park runners who recorded a personal best this week. An extra special congratulations to Darren & Louis on both achieving your 50th parkrun milestones – what an incredible achievement. Something for us newer park runners to aim for. Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Flaxmere parkrun Results Page.

The event was made possible by 9 volunteers and we thank them for their time today – Nneka OKONTA, Martin O'SULLIVAN, Andrew JONES, Keith VINCENT, Richard MILLS, Melissa THORBURN, Amber THORBURN, Jeffrey DOOLAN and Nikola BASS. You all make these run’s possible – thank you. Flaxmere parkrun started on 15th June 2019, which means our second birthday run is fast approaching – keep an eye out for details coming for how we will celebrate in the coming weeks. Since beginning in 2019 919 participants have completed 4,679 parkruns covering a total distance of 23,395 km, including 830 new Personal Bests. A total of 134 individuals have volunteered 683 times.

Congratulations Gail on your 50th parkrun milestone

Congratulations Gail on your 50th parkrun milestone

 

It was such a perfect autumn morning for our 80th Flaxmere parkrun on Saturday.  Clear and crisp with the promise of a day of sunshine ahead.  It’s hard to think of a happier way to start the day (and the long weekend) than 5 kilometres of walking or running in the local park with friends.

A special shout out to the 13 walkers and runners who were first timers at the parkrun on Saturday.  Great work getting out there and we look forward to many more adventures in the park with you all.

As always, thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers who make the event possible - Nneka OKONTA • Richard MILLS • Wendy APPERLEY • Cameron APPERLEY • Melissa THORBURN • Amber THORBURN • Gretchen STONE • James RAINGER • Nikola BASS.  Special thanks to James Rainger for the impromptu haka in lieu of a bell at the 4 km mark.

Well done to all of you clever people who recorded a personal best time this week.  Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Flaxmere parkrun Results Page.

Very much looking forward to seeing you all again next Saturday.  And finally, here’s some running motivation to enjoy.

Sometimes you need to run (or walk); To grab your trainers, your vest; To leave the emails, the text; What’s been before, What’s happening next; Sometimes you need the pavement; The park, the drizzle, the rain; The sweat, the mud; The wind and the pain; Sometimes you need to run; Not for a purpose or a goal; But for the sound of your steps; Re-charging your soul.

Nga mihi

We had a beautiful karakia to start our Flaxmere parkrun this morning.  Forty nine lucky people took part, with 3 first timers and 8 recorded new personal bests. The weather was cloudy and crisp, a perfect day for a run and walk.  Well done to everyone who clocked up the five kilometres in the park that we love, it was so much fun as always.

Special thanks to our nine volunteers who made the event possible -

Joce JONES • Andrew JONES • Peter YOUNG • Melissa THORBURN • Erin BRADLEY • Gretchen STONE • Nicki YOUNG • Ngaire BARNARD • Jeffrey DOOLAN

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

And finally a history lesson and a poem.

Flaxmere parkrun started on 15th June 2019. Since then 875 participants have completed 4,311 parkruns covering a total distance of 21,555 km. A total of 123 individuals have volunteered 618 times.

And poetry in honour of the colder temperatures this morning and to inspire us to keep getting out of bed these autumn mornings:

People Who Go Running

can be recognised in various ways;

but don’t worry, they’ll tell you. They’re forever

synchronising their complicated watches,

or shopping for expensive trainers that

a physio said would be good for their arches.

. . .

They’ll come home from long runs in winter

and breathe joy into the cold air, morning

fizzing through their veins and sweat settling

on their skin like a beginning, like glory.

(Joe Caldwell)

 

Flaxmere parkrun, Event #73, 27th February 2021

This week 41 people ran, jogged and walked the course at Flaxmere parkrun welcoming Cadence Morgan to the J10 club for completing her 10th parkrun at Flaxmere. It’s always great to see our youngest parkrunners out there having fun with the rest of us but boy it can be hard work trying to keep up with them. Celebrating too was Philip Shambrook (aka Dr Phil now). Philip completed his Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD) in December after studying at La Trobe University in Bendigo, Australia. Since he will be unable to attend a graduation ceremony in Australia he and Louise decided to have their own graduation ceremony with friends, in places that have special meaning for them. The first event for the day was Flaxmere parkrun where, resplendent in the full official academic regalia for La Trobe University (yes that does include the hat) and accompanied by several other parkrunners dressed as wizards, wannabe wizards or just having fun, Dr Phil walked around the course.

Also joining the fun were four first timers to Flaxmere parkrun and six others who recorded new personal bests. Congratulations to those who went better than they have done before, and welcome to those who joined us for the first time this week. Briefing is an important part of parkrun run each and every week. It's then that we as a parkrun community can welcome people to parkrun who have never parkrun before, and also greet parkrunners visiting us from around New Zealand (and the world once we can travel again). It also gives us an opportunity to celebrate individual milestones for the number of parkruns completed or the number of times volunteered. It's not always the 'same old, same old' each week. Avoid FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) and be at parkrun in time for the briefing at 07:50 every week.
Our event this week was made possible by these eight volunteers who were resplendent in their hi-vis vests: Michael John LEARY • Michaela MINNIE • Philip SHAMBROOK • Gail HUSSEY • Melissa THORBURN • Amber THORBURN • Julie WILLIAMS • Philip MCKAY. A biiiiiiig thank you to you all for giving up your time so that others can parkrun.  We need volunteers every week so that we can parkrun. Please do take a look at the Future Roster and see which of the vacant roles you would like to fill in the weeks ahead and let the event team know.

 

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Flaxmere parkrun Results Page. There are a few people edging towards milestones. If you're one of them please make sure to let the Run Director know so that we can all celebrate your achievement.

Run report for Saturday 6th February 2021,

Written by Erin Bradley

Happy Waitangi Day to everybody who attended today’s #70 Flaxmere parkrun. We did it – we made it through 5k on a fresh Saturday morning... one way or another. Some for their first time with us- there were 9 participants including 3 runners in the top 10, and one for the 100th time. A massive congratulations on the black tutu, Richard MILLS, black is a lovely slimming colour!

Congratulations on completing your 100th parkrun Richard

Congratulations on completing your 100th parkrun Richard

Everyone is always welcome at New Zealand’s Active Park of the Year on New Zealand’s best day of the year, parkrun Saturday. It was a cooler start than expected for this event, but as usual, even in a cooler morning,

Hastings is always guaranteed to put on a good show. We had a total of 63 competitors complete the run – I say competitor loosely, as I am in no way competing with anyone else, rather with myself to make it to the end with my heart rate having been sped up somewhat. There were a lot of speedies today – Walter SOMERVILLE whipped around in 18:03 with Scott WHITLEY from Fielding Moa Harriers hot on his heels with a new PB of 19:15. Just a head’s up – I’ve put my name down for photographer for the 13th Feb run… I don’t claim to have any particular talent but I am looking forward to catching a magic shot of you mid-step, in the zone, making your way around the course. I’m following in some seriously skilled shoes, as the one thing I enjoy most each week is spotting myself among the high-quality, high-res pics. I’m yet to see a bad photo of anyone!!

The event was made possible by 10 volunteers: Joce JONES • Andrew JONES • Melissa THORBURN • Amber THORBURN • Erin BRADLEY • Olaf HIRCZY • Nick JOHNSON • Ngaire BARNARD • Jeffrey DOOLAN • Liz MYLES

Run Report #69 Flaxmere

Another Saturday & another great reason to jump out of bed - parkrun. I love the sense of involvement and achievement it gives me before 9.00am on a Saturday morning and sets me up lovely for the rest of the weekend. I'm still trying to get the rest of the family to share my love of parkrun. I do have a commitment from my son to come at least once a month - so it's a start!

The temperature that welcomed the 52 runners, joggers and walkers this morning was cooler than that experienced in the bay earlier this week and proved to be optimum conditions for 16 of our participants who achieved personal bests, well done to all of you.

We were reminded in this morning's briefing on the parkrun milestones, for which you receive a t-shirt once you complete 50, 100 or 250 parkruns or 25 volunteer roles. And from looking through the results I can see quite a few parkrunners are getting close to these, which is a great achievement.  You can only achieve these milestones if you scan your barcode so unfortunately four participants did miss out today. Remember - don't forget your barcode! Your barcode also allows you to participate in 33 parkruns throughout New Zealand and over 2000 worldwide. Whenever we plan a trip away now I always look to see if we can tie it up with a parkrun and have been lucky enough to take part in 5 other events so far with more planned for this year. You can find all the different events via the Parkrun website. This week we welcomed 2 visitors from different parkruns Glen Wallis from Porirua and Steve Franklin from our neighbour Anderson Park. We hope you enjoyed your trip to Flaxmere.

This week we congratulated Jeff Doolan as he became a member of the 25 Volunteer Club, a huge achievement, it's always nice to pass Jeff ringing his bell as you complete your final lap and look forward to seeing him sporting his new purple t-shirt soon.  Volunteers are an integral part of our weekly parkrun and can't take part without them. If you'd like to volunteer, please visit the volunteer page on the Flaxmere parkrun page. This week’s event was made possible by 8 volunteers; Lois Dawson-Mikaere, Jeffrey Doolan, Michael Leary, Eileen Mills, Richard Mills, Lisa Pohatu, Peter Straghan & Julie Williams.

This week 52 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 2 were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 8 volunteers:

Michael John LEARY • Peter STRAGHAN • Eileen MILLS • Richard MILLS • Julie WILLIAMS • Lisa POHATU • Lois DAWSON-MIKAERE • Jeffrey DOOLAN

Flaxmere parkrun Event #67 16 Jan 21

Many thanks to Nneka Okonta for this terrific Run Report.

Another glorious day in the bay and this week 66 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 4 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 7 different clubs took part.

Of the 14 first timers, seven people recorded their very first official parkrun. Congratulations and welcome again to the parkrun family and hope to see you again soon: Cathy BELL, Crystal HAEREWA, Edith LANDER, Hannah FOLEY, Leoni TURI, Lucy MCKAY, and Song SIM. Special mention to Cathy who managed the whole 5km on her walker, an awesome effort. A little bird told me that back at the Flaxmere parkrun launch Patsy KARENA completed the 5km with a walker as well. That’s the awesome Flaxmere spirit right there. Leoni and Crystal have attended several times previously with Hastings councillor and uber parkrun supporter Henare NGAERA O'KEEFE who was being interviewed by NZ on air. Look out for that footage coming soon! Hannah also gets a special mention because I love parkrunning families and she attended with her brother.

Once you have recorded your first official parkrun, you can start chasing personal bests (only if you want to). Congratulations to Andrew MCCLUNIE, Jackie WATTS, Mareiana TE AHURU, and Robert TOMLINSON who all recorded personal bests today.

There were no milestones today, but three of our local Flaxmere parkrunners are coming up to 100 very soon! Allan MACHAKAIRE is on 95 parkruns, Run Director Richard MILLS is on 98 parkruns, and Cameron APPERLEY is on 99 parkruns. Another little bird tells me that Cam will be combining his parkrun milestone with some parkrun tourism, so advance congratulations Cam! Also included in the 'soon to reach a milestone' is one of our many terrific volunteers. Jeff Doolan is only a couple of volunteer roles of reaching his 25 volunteer milestone. Jef doesn't parkrun but comes out and volunteers. You'll usually see him at the 4 km marker with his bell cheering you on. Many thanks Jeff. We can't do this event every week without you and all the other volunteers.

Today’s parkrun tourists included Gerry SMITH from Kapiti Coast; Julie BARRETT, Graeme BARRETT, and Susan MENDS from Anderson all returning to parkrun after a wee break; Mason COKER and Tim COKER from Lower Hutt; and Tom WOUTERSEN starting his parkrun journey with a parkrun tourism following on from University of Waikato last week.

Two Flaxmere parkrun run directors Louise and Philip SHAMBROOK were touring to Gisborne last weekend and wrote the run report (if you haven’t seen it, you can read about their adventure here https://www.facebook.com/Gisborneparkrun/posts/2801057180156931 ). Louise and Phil were chasing their NENDY (Nearest Event Not Done Yet) as part of a parkrun tourism challenge. There are lots of other parkrun challenges that you can do locally and I’m putting it out there that I’m trying for the ‘Groundhog Day’ challenge next week – that means getting the same time at the same parkrun course two weeks in a row. I’m not sure I’ve got the ability to pace myself that well, I might have to rely on Phil WHYMAN and Steve CLARK both turning up next week! A nice long term challenge is stopwatch bingo, trying to tick off all the seconds in your result time, e.g. if your finish time was 45:34 then you would have ticked ‘34’ on your stopwatch bingo.

Or you can see how many different volunteer badges you can get like the nine hi-vis volunteer heroes who made the event possible: Alan BARNARD, Andrew JONES, Erin BRADLEY, Gretchen STONE, Jeffrey DOOLAN, Nneka OKONTA, Olaf HIRCZY, Philip MCKAY, and Philip SHAMBROOK. Much appreciated and it is a lot of fun volunteering, full training given so no need to be nervous. You can see the Future Roster and the roles that need filling on the Future Roster page on the website. If you want to join the volunteer crew pop your name on the list at parkrun, email the friendly team at flaxmere@parkrun.com, or send a message to the Flaxmere parkrun Facebook page.

Flaxmere parkrun report Event 66

It was a beautiful cool morning at Flaxmere park, and we were lucky that the rain held off for people to aim for some personal bests.
FB_IMG_1610228188859

This week 61 people ran, jogged, and walked the course and 9 recorded new Personal Bests and 12 First timers. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part.

Well done for the following first timers to Flaxmere parkrun (some being first time visitors from other parkrun events),

David PARKER, Paul COLGRAVE, Michelle PARKER, David TOMLINSON, Fiona HALL, Emily TOMLINSON, Jackie TOMLINSON, Sophie TOMLINSON, Winston HAEREWA, David HEENEY, Tessa TOMLINSON, Liam EASTWOOD

The one thing I admire about parkrun in Flaxmere (and my guess is parkrun everywhere) is the comradeship of everyone participating. Everyone who passes you gives some encouraging words as they pass by that its contagious and you cannot help but return the favour to other people.

I have never found running easy, and I often enjoy chatting with people from all walks of life, listening to their running journey and their pits and peaks. For the gifted few running comes easy, but for the majority they have remained consistent with their approach and overtime (and many kms) they come to a point where running is enjoyable instead of a chore. I am yet to get to that point, but for the time being I am happy being amongst a group of people with similar mindsets and every week aim to get a little bit fitter and learn to love running a little bit more.

As always, we thank the following volunteers for their time and enthusiasm to ensure Flaxmere parkrun runs smoothly
Nneka OKONTA • Michael EASTWOOD • Kelly EASTWOOD • Melissa THORBURN • Lisa POHATU • Ngaire BARNARD • Jeffrey DOOLAN • Jo REYNGOUD • Trish GARDNER ORR • Joy GRAHAM
I would encourage more people to get involved with this awesome event and set your own goals and milestones to achieve. I once read on a billboard, slow or fast, 5km is still 5km.

Grab a beverage, a treat, and take a seat to take time out to read our double Festive parkrun reports. You've earned it!

Flaxmere parkrun event #62 Christmas parkrunday, 25th December 2020

Run Report, written by Erin BRADLEY

Merry Christmas everyone! Here's hoping you had a good day.
Many completed today's parkrun, and their times they did slay!
With the 62nd Flaxmere parkrun completed, there was some festive
sightings to report!
A tree on a head, a Christmas batman, and elves (of a sort)
The sun was shining, as usual, and all through the park
the people were running, and for some their first ever start.
The tinsel lady, the fella from Porirua,
the '250' guys and some a little slower,
All making their way round NZ's best Park (did you hear?!)
Out on Christmas morning, the best run-day of the year.
With shout's of "Merry Christmas" from our park neighbours too
pushing us to the finish line, when we make it, we shout "Phew!"
Once completed, off home to continue our Christmas Day,
And know we will return tomorrow - its parkrun Saturday!

Flaxmere parkrun event #63 Boxing parkrunday, 26th December 2020

Run Report, written by Richard MILLS

Its not hard to be enthusiastic about parkrun. It’s our tribe, the people we understand and who understand us. You might be the hare who scampers around in 17 minutes or the turtle in an hour and 7 minutes and yet know that each and every one of us is as valid as anyone else. Well done to each and everyone that turned up at 8am on Boxing Day morning.

20201226_075712 20201226_080058

Phil Whyman turned up at the start, at start time today thinking that he might avoid the black tutu that signified 100 runs. A cunning planbut the run director Melissa saw through the subterfuge,  and delayed the start to make sure Phil was suitably attired. Well done mate and I look forward to joining you in that club sometime early next year.

20201226_075934

Congratulations Phil WHYMAN on your 100th parkrun

Like yesterday we had one of our visitors ticking off the milestone of completing all of the New Zealand parkrun’s at Flaxmere. There are 32 in total from Invercargill in the south to Whangarei in the north so Wendy's done a heat of traveling. That’s typical of parkrun in giving us aims and aspirations, whether that’s a free t-shirt for completing 25 volunteer roles; 50, 100 or 250 runs or just the opportunity to turn up and get some exercise on a perfect summer Saturday morning in Hawke's Bay.

20201226_084225

Congratulations Wendy HARE for completing all New Zealand events, finishing with Flaxmere parkrun.

Our little park is in excellent condition, with shade across the track for the majority of its path. Flaxmere park was voted New Zealand’s best active park for 2020 and we are proud to be a part of the accolade.
Thanks for sharing your time and energy with us this weekend. Massive thanks to the volunteers who gave up their time so that we could hold two events back-to-back this weekend.  Thanks to the volunteers who have already offered to help so that we can repeat the fun on New Year's Day and the day after. We do still have a coup[le of volunteer roles looking for names for next weekend and for the following weeks. Please have a look at the vacant roles and let us know which one and when you would like to fill. We look forward to seeing you on New Years morning at Flaxmere parkrun to start 2021 in a most suitable manner, then repeat the experience on Saturday, and every Saturday ever after..

On Boxing Day 51 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 5 were first timers and 4 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.

The Boxing Day event was made possible by 8 volunteers:

Flaxmere parkrun event # 61 19 December 2020

Hello all I hope the Christmas season is treating you all well as we build up to our double header for  Christmas Day and Boxing Day at Flaxmere parkrun.
It was a beautiful day to get in, parkrun 5km and have your early exercise all completed before the day's heat kicked in. Remember the only thing better than doing parkrun is bringing along a friend to parkrun especially considering all the Christmas goodies we will all no doubt enjoy over this period. Congratulations to all our parkrunners who also have other events on at the moment and may find it harder to fit parkrun in as well but I’m sure you will be back soon stronger than ever
Until next time parkrunners, remember at parkrun it’s all about being there. Five km is 5km no matter how long it takes. Take care, have a great holiday season if you are not running on Christmas Day, or Boxing Day at Flaxmere parkrun. Live it up and bring on 2021
