Restart set for 4th Dec 2021

If the NSW COVID-19 roadmap goes to plan, Newy is set to return on Saturday 4th December 2021.

That assumes we have filled all volunteer roles required to operate the event safely. If you'd like to volunteer simply email your barcode (if you have one), name and preferred role to: newy@parkrun.com.

We will post updates here if that date changes. Also check our Facebook page for regular updates and posts.

Happy running!

 

 

COVID Lockdown puts Newy on pause

NSW Health have announced a stay-at-home order on 5th August until 12.01am Friday 13th August for for Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Port Stephens, Singleton, Dungog, Muswellbrook and Cessnock.

This means that Newy and all other parkrun events in these LGAs will be cancelled for Saturday 7th August.

To lift the lockdown as soon as possible please do the right thing and comply, which means that (from 5pm today) everyone in these areas must stay at home unless it is for an essential reason; and no visitors in your home.

Please DO NOT ATTEND NEWY PARKRUN at the usual time. Go for a run/walk, but follow the outdoor exercise restrictions and avoid busy pedestrian zones.

For further updates on the Newy Event, follow the Newy Facebook page.

Check the NSW Health site for Newcastle regional information:
https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules

Stay safe!

 

We’re back from 20th Feb 2021!

COVID forced the temporary suspension of Newy parkrun in early March 2020, but almost a year later, we’re pleased to be recommencing our weekly event.

From 20th February 2021 (until further notice) Newy parkrun will be on every week at 8am. But there are a few significant changes.

Firstly, our start/finish area has moved 1km North, to share the Carrington off-lease zone. It’s a great open space that allows for our participants to socially distance before and after the event. This location is best described as the corner of Elizabeth and Young Streets, adjacent to the creek.

While the start/finish line has moved, the course footprint is much the same, with a slight modification to avoid two way traffic for a small section.

It’s important for contact tracing that all our participants check-in using the Service NSW QR code. There are multiple printed codes located around the start/finish are to allow parkrunners to check-in on arrival – or you can find the QR code on our Facebook page and check in before you leave home.

If you’re visiting or new to Newy parkrun, rock up by 7.50am to hear the first timers briefing.

We post regularly to our Facebook page, so check there for latest info.

Happy running!

 

2019 Christmas & NYD (1/1/20) Events

Once again (thanks to our committed event team!), Newy will be holding special events on Christmas Day in 2019 and New Year’s Day on 1st Jan 2020. This year these special days fall on a Wednesday, and both events will start at the normal time of 8:00am.

Are both events definitely going ahead?

It's very likely; however, we will only be able to proceed if we get enough volunteers to ensure both events can be managed safely. If you’re interested in volunteering on either event, we are taking volunteers now. Please email newy@parkrun.com with your barcode number, preferred role and which event you’re nominating for.

Christmas Day Info

BB will be your Run Director on Christmas Day. As a recently retired school teacher, planning is already underway. It will be a relaxed, family-friendly, social event. We encourage you to get into the festive spirit with Christmas attire and to bring your best carol-singing voice for the 12k's of Christmas and pre-run brief which kicks off at around 7:45am. We welcome regulars, newbies and visitors/tourists.

The party doesn’t stop at midnight! Danielle will be your Run Director so you can expect fun tunes when you cross the line and probably some dancing. The special New Year’s Day Event is typically quite popular, with well over 400 finishers last year. Many will be there to show off their non-hangover status and kickstart the year on the right foot… followed by the left. If you're super keen to reach a milestone, you can double-up at The Beaches parkrun which starts at 9.30am which leaves you plenty of time to get between parkruns without rushing.

The rules of delivery that will be enforced globally are:

  • No doubles allowed on Christmas Day (25th December)
  • Doubles allowed on New Year's Day (1st January), but no trebles.

Here’s a list of other local and Australian events are staging extra events:
http://www.parkrun.com.au/special-events/

It will be parkrun-as-usual on the Saturday's over the Christmas period, so the Newy parkrun event calendar will look like this:

  • Saturday 22nd December
  • Wednesday 25th December (Christmas Day special)
  • Saturday 28th December
  • Wednesday 1st January (New Year's Day special)
  • Saturday 4th January

Event #131 – Gold Shirt Spotted!

PIC: The Cochrane family, visiting from Bushy parkrun UK with run directors Maddy Herbert and Nic Marriage.

It was a big weekend of running in the Region of Runners this weekend and consequently numbers were down to 380 (still the largest in the land of 101 parkruns) but Newy lost none of its swagger.  The Beaches parkrun was launched and lots of folk were resting up for Sunday’s 6k and 12k Run Newcastle event.

Several runners achieved red shirt 50 status - our lead runner Benny Fuller in a PB (thanks in no small part to that pacing we were just talking about), Jill Condon - a smiling Strider, Haley Deacon and Trent Bonar (sorry we missed you Trent - we’ll make it up next week!!).

Meg Bailey became our first runner to complete 100 (of her 101 parkruns) at Newy and in honour of our new Lord Major became the first person to achieve Newy-tali status.

And one more first …. Steve Cochrane, who hails from the spiritual home of parkrunning at Bushy in the UK, became the first person ever to show up at Newy in the rare 250 shirt … this was his 272nd barcoded outing. He runs with the Stragglers but that he is not … in the VM50-54 age category clocking up a smart 20:39.

It was great to see lots of our parkrunnners extending themselves by stepping up to longer distances at Run Newcastle on Sundy. It was also nice that some of those who ended up on the podium on Sunday - took the opportunity to pace friends to PBs (I’m talking about Vlad Shatrov, Celia Sullohern and Nick Marriage).

PIC RIGHT: Congrats Jill on your 50 club membership!

See you all in Summer - and remember keep hydrated and put your hand up for volunteering one week soon.

PIC: Ben Fuller: starting with a red 50 shirt and finishing first with a PB!

Once again the colour ‘red' was the order of the day - though this time there were a few blokes wearing red dresses! It was “The Red Dress Run” - to raise awareness of the efforts to end HIV transmission in NSW by the end of decade.

A great festive atmosphere prevailed with some very enthusiastic volunteers and participants. There were even visitors from Holland!

Virginia Hardyman was acknowledged for her recent 50th (there we go … red again) though she was actually volunteer time-keeper for the day ….. how we love our volunteers (Hint! Hint! Please volunteer soon - it's easy and fun!! newyhelpers@parkrun.com).

Meg Bailey and Andrew Dodd clocked up their 100th parkrun each and were both there for the very first parkrun at Newy way back when. Just for the heck of it Doddy wore 11 different shirts over the 5km course represent various running clubs and events in and around “The Region of Runners”.

Talking of centuries last week the 100th parkrun in Australia was launched at Calamvale in Brisbane.  Start planning your parkrun tourism itinerary now by checking out the sensational video that showcases them all.

Event #129 – Totes Naked!


Balloons. Ribbons. Cards. Big smiles.

There must have been something special going on at Newy parkrun edition #129.  And it wasn’t just the 547 participants.

The purple FLASH ladies, often towards the back of the pack, with big smiles and big hearts always brighten up the faces and the attitudes of the parkrunnners around them. Flash. Ladies. Active. Strong. Healthier - and always with lots of purple and often with great backstories of determination in overcoming difficult situations and getting on top of weight loss with a healthy lifestyle which includes a weekly does of Saturday morning barcoding.

One of their own, Tracy Edwards, was joining the Red Club 50 brigade - but unbeknown to her and everyone else she was also announced as the inaugural Suncorp Bank parkrunner of the month winner.  This brought more than one tear to the eye.  Tracy has walked, run, paced, volunteered, encouraged and knocked more than 15 minutes off her PB. And to top it all off, the 80 year old, high-fiving Godfather of Running in Newcastle, gentleman Jim Beisty, and his good wife Sue gave Tracy a personalised congratulatory card …. and he almost kept up with her the whole way round Throsby Creek!

Adele Martin (a Regionnaire and an International parkrunner to boot) and Nick Marriage (the only parkrunner in the world with the surname of Marriage who has been the first finisher in an event, then quickly changed into a suit and had his girlfriend - only 3 minutes behind - accept a finish line Marriage/marriage proposal) were applauded for their 50th. Nick has also been the first finisher in 8 different parkruns with a PB of 16:37 - and loves Wooting.

 

To cap off the celebrations - on the day that parkrun Australia launched its 100th event at Calamvale (Brisbane) Lauretta Mellows got the three balloon salute for becoming a Black Shirt 100 Club Member. Lauretta loves Newy so much that she bought a place on course … right where one of those old woolsheds used to stand.

Event #127 – Super Pacing Saturday

In homage to the ‘Race that Stops a Nation’ this coming Tuesday, the parkrun that stops a suburb had Super Pacing Saturday with Pacers provided for 19, 20, 22.5, 25, 30, 32.5, 37.5 and 40 minutes to make it Super Pacing Saturday.  There were also super hot conditions to match and a sober reminder to all that in the coming months everyone will need to take the effort to remain hydrated throughout the morning. Despite the summer conditions some 56 PBs were recorded.

Kevin Sweeney was acknowledged for recently completing his 50th parkrun and Event Directors (ED) Penny and Simon Redhead and Ruth White were welcomed to the 50 Club by the other ED Scott White.  Results show that John Wiggers and David Archer snuck their 50th in also.

We are delighted that our sibling at Maitland celebrated their first birthday with 470 participants making it the largest parkrun - not only in the Region of Runners (5 more than us!) but in the country! Well done Maitland.

Event #116 – New Volunteer Day

It was one of those fantastic days for running at Newy parkrun this morning. The sky was cloudy, there wasn't too much wind and it wasn't too chilly. If ever there was a day for a PB to be had, it was today. Out of 371 runners we had 65 new PB's! Congrats to all and keep it up for next week!

The crew of newbie volunteers, weren't put off by the forecast weather (i.e that it was going to pour down) and instead all turned up with great big smiles ready to donate their time. A big thank you to these guys and they definitely ended up 42% more likely to say they were happy by the end of the morning.
