Coburg parkrun # 244 – 07/12/2019

MILESTONE MAYHEM

Well... not mayhem, but super awesome efforts by a bunch of our fantastic regulars! Congratulations to:

  • Juliette FISHLOCK (JW10) on hitting her first BIG milestone, welcome to the 10 Club Juliette!
  • Elliott DENNY (JM10) and Murphy MCLACHLAN (SM30-34) on joining the 50 Club!

A healthy scattering of PBs today also - must be that amazing morning we all enjoyed.

There were a few enquiries regarding our Christmas and New Year's Day runs - they are both definitely on! Jingle bells indeed!

Although it would be great to get a few more volunteers in for those days, as they can be preeeeeetty busy!

Happy weekend all

No barcode, no result, no exceptions

This week's results include fifteen "Unknown" participants. This is because they forgot their barcode.

Printed barcodes are used at all parkrun events globally to record your results. Unfortunately, our barcode scanners can't scan mobile phone or smart watch screens . You can collect and print your barcode from parkrun.com. Alternatively, you can order your barcode on a laser engraved silicone wristband from Bent Logic. We are strict with regard to this policy as we process over 100,000 results every weekend and if we were to relax our approach it would increase the amount of work for our volunteers.

If you'd like to learn more about the history of the printed barcode at parkrun and why this policy is in place, take a listen to the special No barcode, no result, no exceptions episode of the excellent Free, Weekly, Timed podcast.

Thanks to this week's volunteers

Every parkrun event relies on volunteers and volunteering is a wonderful way to make friends, feel great and have fun. We're very grateful to everyone who's volunteered at Coburg parkrun in the past.

This weekend's community event was brought to you by ten wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Rhydian COWLEY, Hagen DITTMER, Fleur DOUY, Kathleen DULLAGHAN, Arden FRASER, Adam JENKINS, Michelle LOADER, Nicky MAXWELL, David NOLAN and Sharon TAYLOR.

If you'd like to help, please take a look at the Future Roster page and drop our volunteer co-ordinator an email with the date(s) on which you'd like to volunteer.

Children at parkrun

We want children to have an overwhelmingly positive experience at parkrun; participating because they want to, in a way they want to; and in a safe environment at all times. In general, at parkrun events, children aged 11 and over are free to participate as individuals in a similar way to adults. They are still children and we are committed to providing the safest possible environment for them to participate in, and we fully accept our duty of care over these individuals. It’s important to note however that the ultimate responsibility for their welfare remains with their parents or guardians.

Walking, jogging, or running

  • At our 5k Saturday events, children under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice at all times.
  • At junior parkrun Australia events children can run on their own from the age of 4 until the day before 15th birthday.
  • Under the age of 11 children must be accompanied to the start, and from the finish, of the event.
  • As with adults, children must always participate on foot. The only exception to this is that we do welcome wheelchair users where the course permits. In appropriate circumstances children may, if needed, be carried for short periods, however this must only be at a sensible walking pace and not running.

Can my child accompany me on their bicycle (bike, cycle) or scooter?

  • No, we believe that bicycles or scooters and runners do not mix. The risk of injury to runners and children is too high.

Volunteering

  • Children are a wonderful part of every parkrun community and we encourage them to volunteer.
  • Children under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice at all times.
  • Those aged 11 or over can volunteer without their parent or guardian, but should be within close proximity of a responsible adult volunteer. This is providing all parties are comfortable with this arrangement.

Additional Information

  • It is not permitted to run with a pram and a dog at the same time.
  • Running whilst carrying a child of any age (whether in a front or back baby-carrier/harness, in your arms, on your shoulders or piggyback) is not permitted during parkrun events, as it poses a substantial safety risk. Walking whilst carrying a baby or child is permitted as long as their safety and welfare is not compromised.
  • Children may be pushed around our events in a buggy however they should be dressed appropriately, comfortable, and secure at all times. They should also have reached a stage of physical development where they are able to withstand the rigours of course-specific conditions.

Coburg parkrun Facts and Figures

This week 136 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 18 were first timers and 22 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

Festive Season at Coburg parkrun

Hi Everyone,

Our Christmas morning and New Year's Day events have been very popular in recent years, and we're thrilled to confirm that we're holding events on both these days again this year. New Year's Day will be 8am, so you can even start your New Year in style with an official parkrun 10km double - check here for a list of events starting at 09:30: https://www.parkrun.com.au/special-events/ - Sunbury, Mullum Mullum and Darebin are the closest 09:30 events to us.

Hope to see you there!

 

Coburg parkrun # 240 – 09/11/2019

It was an unseasonably cool November morning but spirits were high as Andrew joined the 100 club and donned the black and red cape. Special thanks again to all the volunteers this week who made this event possible. If its been a while or you've never volunteered before, please do give it a go. It's great fun and much easier to have chat when you are not gasping for breathe during a run.
