Run report #207 East Coast Park 09.06.2018

Firstly, as always, a big thank you to this weeks fantastic volunteer team:

Bert DE BACKKER, Arnaud DE HERRYPON, Eddie FAWCETT, Krys FOO, John HARVIE, Graeme HESPE, Ian JEFFCOCK

who made Event #207 of East Coast Park possible, our last event aged three. Yes, can you believe that next week we will be turning four? We would love to celebrate in style but as things stand we haven't yet got a cake-baker. If you would like to make a cake, please do contact us at eastcoastparkhelpers@parkrun.com.

This week we had 54 runners, 11 PB's, and 15 East Coast Park first timers, 5 of whom Event #207 was their very first parkrun. Welcome!

Simon Cariss completed his 50th run and junior Tilly Brereton completed her 10th which she celebrated by running an 83 second personal best. The most parkrunned runner on the day was our own Nick Wilson (267) alongside five other 100 club members including Gil Madrid running his first parkrun at East Coast Park since joining the prestigious club last week at a very wet Bishan park.

Alongside Tilly, ten others achieved new PBs. Well done:

Ria GUZMAN 33:56

Tilly BRERETON 28:42
Satnam DANG 28:36

Volunteering
Volunteering is part of parkrun. We would love to see new faces helping out. We still need more volunteers to step forward for our next events so please consider helping us out in order to make East Coast Park parkrun a success. Everyone who volunteers gets a terrific buzz from being part of an instant team working like clockwork to bring a parkrun to life. Volunteering is a great way to meet fellow parkrunners. There are two ways to indicate your intention to volunteer in coming weeks. First, you can approach any of our volunteers with orange bibs at the start/finish area and we will write down your details in our register. Alternatively, you can check out the https://www.parkrun.sg/Eastcoastpark/futureroster/ on the East Coast Park parkrun website and then send an email to Eastcoastparkoffice@parkrun.com with the dates you can help out and any preference you have for a volunteering role.

Sharing East Coast Park with Friends
Runners, walkers, dogs, and cyclists all share the marvellous paths at East Coast Park and surrounds. Ensure you stay to the left and be courteous to other users of this beautiful park.

Water
A reminder that there are no water fountains at East Coast Park in close vicinity to the start. Please bring your own water bottle to store at the meeting point which can be refilled at the toilet block or bring some change to use the vending machine there.

PLEASE Bring Your PRINTED Barcode: NO barcode = NO result = NO EXCEPTIONS.
Please bring PRINTED barcodes only as unfortunately barcodes on mobile phones cannot always be scanned so will not be accepted. Printed barcodes are used at all our events to record your result.

Five IMPORTANT things to tell potential first timers among your friends:
1. Register and print off a barcode a day or two before your first event. No barcode unfortunately means no time will be recorded.
2. Stick to the left of the path during the event and be mindful of other path users.
3. All parkrunners volunteer. Parkrun relies on volunteers to stage each event.
4. Have fun. You are only competing against yourself. Everyone's a winner at parkrun.
5. ... and don't forget to bring your PRINTED barcode !!

Look forward to seeing you all at Event #208 our fourth anniversary celebration!

 

Run report #206 East Coast Park 02.06.2018

Well, an extra big thank you to the 9 volunteers - Dickon ADDIS, John HARVIE, Stuart MCINTOSH, Warren MITCHELL, David PILGRIM, Muhamad RIZAL, Aidan STEEMAN, Mandy STEWART, Nick WILSON - who turned up this morning to host Event #206 despite the tropical storm raging!

There was a short 15 minutes delay to proceedings whilst Race Director Dave - volunteering for the 25th time, thank you Dave for all the hard work that you have put into organising parkrun, we are sure you will remember this one! - assessed the course for safety before flagging off the participants.

Such was the weather that only 26 parkrunners completed the course - that’s our lowest turn out since 2014 BUT almost as big as the turnouts at the other two parkruns in Singapore put together.

Well done to Thys Moreau, clearly a fan of wet weather, who shot off like a rocket and was rewarded with a 32 second PB in a time of 18:07 - the only parkrunner to get a PB on the day!

And a standing ovation for young Elin Harvie, Chris Phillips, Eva Simmons and Tom Brookshaw all of whom completed their first ever parkrun. What a morning to start your parkrun journey! These four were joined by a handful of hardy tourists from the UK and Australia also running the course for the first time.

Now, in two weeks time we will be celebrating our fourth anniversary at East Coast Park. And as all of those that have been with us for the last few years, know, anniversary does not just mean the usual recipe of parkrunning and fun…but also cake! Only one problem - we don't yet have a cake-baker. If any of you East Coast Park parkrunners would like to make us one for the celebrations contact us now at: eastcoastparkhelpers@parkrun.com
