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

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

Run report #204 East Coast Park 19.05.2018

Firstly, a big thanks to all the volunteers who put on Event #204 of East Coast Park parkrun:

Martin Tay Huan Mui, Matthew Simon, Priscilla Chew, Ian Jeffock, Eng Eng Seah, Yogendra Yadav, Collin Xiaojun Wang, Pannirselvam S and Chin Chew without you we wouldn't have had an event!

This week although we only had a small crowd of 49 parkrunners, we had a large contingent of 18 tourists! Well done to this weeks improvers with new personal bests Beverly Paulis-Lukaszewski (27:33) and Mark Sheldon (27:46).

Unfortunately 7 runners of our finishers were without printed barcodes. Please remember to bring them next time as we'd love to see you appear in our results. If you are a forgetful type keep a spare under the insole of your shoe or in your phone case that way if if you forget you'll still have it with you!

Run report #203 East Coast Park 12.05.2018

Thanks to all the volunteers who put on Event #203 of East Coast Park parkrun:

Eddie Fawcett, Warren Mitchell, Scott Paintner, David Pilgrim, Alene Tan (who stepped in on the day), Collin Xiaojun Wang, Jonathan Woolham and last but not least Nick Wilson

your contribution to East Coast Park parkrun is really, really appreciated.

It was Nick's 26th time volunteering so Run Director Dave took the opportunity to present him with his (laminated) Volunteer Club T-shirt as a small token of gratitude for his special contribution to the event. Thank you Nick! We're so proud to have you at East Coast Park.

The good news for Nick is that the club milestone t-shirts are now back in stock! If you are entitled to a free club milestone t-shirt - which every parkrunner in Singapore is once having completed 50, 100, 250 or 500 parkruns or having volunteered 25 times - you should receive an email in the near future giving you instructions on how to claim your free t-shirt. parkrun have recently brought t-shirt production in-house and as a result have a backlog of t-shirts to distribute so please don't panic if this isn't immediate. You can find out more about this exciting news on this link: http://www.parkrun.com/news/

Now back on this week's running. Can you believe the number of PBs? We had an auspicious 88 runners in total and 18 ran the fastest they ever had at East Coast Park. Well done!

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 #202!

 

Run report #200 East Coast Park 21.04.2018

We had a lovely group of 63 parkrunners this morning at East Coast Park parkrun for what was a very sunny Event #200. This included four runners taking part in their first ever parkrun and tourists from the UK, Australia and South Africa. In fact, we also had our first ever volunteer from South Africa too - an extra big thank you to this week's Tailwalker, Filia Rockas all the way from Delta parkrun in Johannesburg!

Filia was joined in the volunteer team by Matt Simon, David Allan, Simon Cariss, Damaris Carlisle, Anna Helowicz, Charles Less and Scott Paintner. Thank you all!

Bishan parkrun launches
A big shout out to the team at Bishan parkrun, who successfully launched Singapore's third parkrun this morning. Of course being a first parkrun, the team had no idea how many to expect. Nor did the teams at West Coast Park or East Coast Park know how their turnouts would be affected either. Interestingly, there was quite an even split between the three parks - 65, 67, and 63 respectively!

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.
