Invercargill parkrun Event number 166 14th August 2021

I was a bit nervous early this morning listening to the hail thinking about what it will be like at parkrun, but thankfully the weather was kind to us, and the sun even made an appearance.  There were 76 park runners, walkers, and joggers who made their way around the course today, seven were first timers to Invercargill parkrun.

parkrun is made possible by our amazing volunteers who each week help to guide us around the course, ensure that our times are taken, our positions and times are recorded against our names, that nobody comes last as the tail walker always walks at the back and of course, and that there is photo evidence that we actually did do parkrun. This week our hi vis heroes were

Michelle Carter, Riley Ferguson, Melanie Ryding, Ruth Prattley, Tobias Prattley, Marcia Ferguson, Liz Henry, Amy Iversen, Grant Baker, Cheryl Dahms, Regan Prattley, Bruce Hartley, Amiee Withington and Aria Ferguson.

We always need people to volunteer, it is a great way to give back to parkrun, cheer on your fellow runners and walkers and you get a free coffee. Just email invercargill@parkrun.com to put yourself down as a volunteer one week.

Congratulations to our first placer Aidan McAra who also got a PB today of 17:20. Also to our first female home was Debbie Telfer for a time of 24:49.

Five people received PBs today, they were: Aidan McAra, Pippa Brown, Donald Wang, Mitchell Powell, and Victoria Powell.

We had one overseas visitor to our parkrun today, Gilly Cross, who is visiting from London. This was Gillys first parkrun in 18 months due to the UK being in lockdown. It was also her 50th Parkrun today so congratulations to Gilly and what a great feeling it must have been to be running in parkrun again.

Gilly

Smile of the day also goes to Denise Hare. Denise has had a few enforced weeks off parkrun, but yesterday was given the all clear to return. Lovely to have you back at parkrun Denise.  It was very emotional at the finish line!  We are so proud of you for completing parkrun today!!

Event number 165
7th August 2021

Kim Hartley foreword: Nau mai Haere Mai Welcome to Invercargill’s Parkrun report.
What crazy weather today, it felt like four seasons in one Parkrun!
52 hearty souls took part today and I heard a mutter as we walked and talked our way around the course that maybe being a runner wasn’t a bad idea as they were back and dry before the worst of the weather!!!

Out on the course, we had blue sky, followed by rain, and then hail. A bit like life you never know what to expect and like life we had a group of us a cheer squad to help us through. It was such a pleasure to share this morning with good company laugh and walk. Another feature of today’s parkrun was listening and watching as the park is waking up for spring, such a stirring of our souls to hear the birds in full song. It is the magic of our parkrun to be able to share this magnificent park every Saturday.

A big thank you to the Parks Department of Invercargill City Council, the new path is a real pleasure to run and walk on. We appreciate all that you do to make our parkrun run so smoothly, including sweeping our start line for us.

To the volunteers,  Aria FERGUSON  •  Bradley LEONARD  •  Brendon CORBETT  •  Jared STUART  •  Karen LEADLEY  •  Katrina MCGILLAN  •  Kylie BONIFACE  •  Leon HARTNETT  •  Marcia FERGUSON  •  Mary MARSHALL  •  Melanie RYDING  •  Peter BIGGERSTAFF  •  Regan PRATTLEY  •  Riley FERGUSON  •  Ruth PRATTLEY  •  Sarah BIGGERSTAFF  •  Vicki SHAW

thank you for all your support today, it was great to see all your smiling faces on the course, no matter the weather, you always bring the sunshine.
until next week,
Haere rā, keep warm and safe whānau.

Our first finishers today were: Corvin O'ROURKE and Helen STEWART - congrats to you both.

Considering the weather conditions today, the following people managed their personal beats! Great job guys! received_342468370855960

TheWeather Slab

After a forecast suggesting a fine but cloudy morning, it was a surprise to be setting up for parkrun this morning in misty and reasonably wet conditions.  It was wonderful to see all the parkrunners who joined us despite the weather!

We are here every week, and it definitely helps the volunteers knowing that we have many other parkrunners, walkers and joggers with us on the course.

This week 95 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 5 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:

Liz HENRY • Alexandra HENRY • Amy IVERSEN • Aimee WITHINGTON • Cindy MULROONEY • Sandra SWENSSON • Craig SWENSSON • Cheryl DAHMS • Robyn SMITH • Barry SMITH • Brendon CORBETT • Kim HARTLEY • Melanie RYDING • Helen BRUNNER • Cam NELSON • Mackenzie VAUGHAN

The volunteer board is looking quite bare.  Can you help us out?

Invercargill parkrun Event number 163 24th July 2021

It was one very cold morning when it warmed up not long after parkrun finished. There were 101 parkrunners and 20 volunteers in attendance braving the conditions this morning. It was my first parkrun in New Zealand that starts at 9am, which only happens during NZST, otherwise I have done an international parkrun in England where all their parkruns start at 9am. Having accomplished this new feat of collecting the letter ‘I’ for the first letter of this parkrun name is a great achievement towards the alphabet challenge. The 8 marshals on the course is a great asset to this course as I was not sure on what the course layout was like until the run started. 

 

As it was a 10 minute walk from where I was staying, it was a great advantage on getting to parkrun early. Coming from the Wellington region was a big change to come to the deep south after spending less than 24 hours here. When I was last here 16 years ago, there have been some changes to the areas that I navigated today. Although this parkrun isn’t the most southern parkrun worldwide (correct me if I am wrong on this), it was an impressive achievement to have done a parkrun in the Southland region here in New Zealand. There has been talks of Gore parkrun commencing or had been consulted, but sadly the course was flooded and is in the progress of being repaired. Hopefully there will be some great news on the start date soon. 

 

There were 11 first timers to the course. 4 of whom did their parkrun here for the very first time and hope to see you again anytime soon. They are as follows: Rex LIU, Emma TODD, Jenny LIU and Joy WO. The rest were tourists from Wellington, Christchurch and Tauranga. This is most likely the first parkrun that I have participated in which has no unknown athlete recorded towards the results. So big congratulations to everyone. 9 personal bests were recorded and no parkrun milestones were achieved today. 

 

Our volunteers are the biggest heroes at every parkrun. The event was run by first time run director Kim HARTLEY. The other volunteers who were out there helping out are as follows: Kylie BONIFACE, Jason CHAN, Brendon CORBETT, Joanne FUKUDA, Bruce HARTLEY, Liz HENRY, Ross HENRY, Rowena HOWE, Dan JOE, Margaret JOHNSTONE, Karen LEADLEY, Bradley LEONARD, Tom MCSORILEY, Cindy MULROONEY, Blake PRATTLEY, Jayden PRATTLEY, Liam PRATTLEY, Ruth PRATTLEY and Melanie RYDING.

 

The tour pack that consists of the Runs with a Barcode book arrived at this parkrun by Stephe Crowther from Tauranga parkrun and now someone has the duties to pass it to a parkrun where the book hasn’t been yet. We are looking forward to seeing where this book ends up next Saturday on the last day of July. School holidays are ending this week and we are approaching the new month soon and also it means that winter is almost over. Time flies very quickly. Photo below of event director Liz Henry and Stephe Crowther of the book. 

DSC09529

As this book is mostly going to head north (Invercargill being the most southern parkrun in New Zealand), we are sure that the next person who now has the book is going to keep passing the baton onwards. 

 

It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves today. You all deserve a nice weekend and enjoy it while it lasts before we repeat our parkrun schedules again next Saturday.

 

Many Thanks,

Dan Joe

We ran a slightly different course this week because of some scheduled tree felling in the park. We are usually lucky to have good trails to run on, but the detour had us running on grass for some of the second km.  It made for a slightly different feel today!

Thanks to everyone for embracing the course detour this week.  We should be back to the usual course next week, but will update via Facebook during the week if this is to change.

Word from the course:

Mackenzie Henry:  "Even though parkrun involves getting up early when you might not want to its worth coming to.  Today I was barcode scanner and I think it is probably one of my favourite volunteer roles.  I liked welcoming people to the finish line and seeing position they got.  I liked saying "wow Token 54 well done!"

Reasons I like parkrun:  It is good to get you fit, and people cheer you on a lot.  I like the hot chocolate at The Cheeky Llama Cafe afterwards too!

What to do when it feels tough? : When its tough, don't tell yourself to try harder, tell yourself to try easier, and relax."

Mackenzie was one of 13 children on the course volunteering today.

Invercargill parkrun Event number 161 10th July 2021

When we were setting up for parkrun this week, the wind was a little concerning.  We went cones light on the course, worried they might get blown away.  But actually as the sun rose the wind did drop.

Despite the cooler winter temperatures it was a great morning to celebrate the end of our winter challenge!

We welcomed MrWhippy to finish line, and celebrated our Winter Challenge with ice creams.  It was a great way to celebrate the success of a weekly 5km effort.

Welcome to the 50 club Brooke!

Recently when talking to an Auckland parkrunner they remarked that they were constantly amazed when our Invercargill parkrunners turned up to run in Auckland during the winter with t-shirts or singlets on, then when they saw that we had a -2 degree event a few weeks ago, and Brooke was running in a singlet, they realised why the 8-12 degree temperature was fine for a singlet!

I am going to shine a light on our founder and greatest supporter of Invercargill parkrun. I know that she will be a little bit shy of the spot light, even so credit is warranted, so sorry not sorry!
What is a super hero? well according to Stan Lee: A superhero is a person who does heroic deeds and has the ability to do them in a way that a normal person couldn’t. So in order to be a superhero, you need a power that is more exceptional than any power a normal human being could possess, and you need to use that power to accomplish good deeds!
This is an adept description of our Event Director, Liz Henry, what is her super power? The ability to bring people together in friendship, laughter and fun together every weekend for parkrun. Her passion and tenacity to bring this event to Invercargill, and make it work was the reason she was first nominated for and then last night won the title for Southland Sports Award for Administrator of the Year - Liz Henry.  We salute you for your passion, and dedication to our parkrun whanau. So a hearty congratulations to you Liz Henry from your volunteers, runners, walkers, woggers and joggers from people and the dogs of parkrun. You accomplish good deeds every week and are so community minded. It was great to see this acknowledged by the judges. You are our true super hero!

On a side note, it was awesome to see everyone dressed up for the event. It took a moment to recognise people out of sportswear!
Have a great week.

76 participants and 18 volunteers braved the -2 temperature this morning to take part in Invercargill Parkrun’s 158th event. Although the sun could be seen the temperature only got to 1 degree by the time we finished. I am sure all the hot chocolates and coffees were appreciated post parkrun.
