  1. ............as are a number on here, and even that is a waste of time and energy. Behind it all is a feeling of deep sadness that we , as counrty, have fallen so far.
  2. 4th December - Biggest UK parkruns: Bushy Park (900), Southampton (654), Poole (512), Heaton Park (487), Cardiff (469), York (463), Cannon Hill (457), Coventry (448), Clapham Common (436), Endcliffe (435),
  3. The total wipe-out last weekhad a lingering effect on this weekends turnout in bitter, windy and cold conditions. Sheffield & Rotherham parkrun attendances for 4th & 5th December 2021. 63 - Graves-Juniors, 48 - Hillsborough Juniors, 2nd lowest ever 26 - Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park -Juniors, 2nd lowest ever Total = 137 94 - Concord. Lowest since 2019 435 - Endcliffe 104 - Graves . Lowest since 2014 266 - Hillsborough. Lowest since 2018 213 - Millhouses, 2nd lowest ever 61 - Castle. Lowest since 2019 Total = 1,567 170 - Rother Valley, Lowest since 2018 72 - Clifton Park, Lowest since 2019 Total = 242 Overall Total = 1,552 parkrun statsgeek group Andrew Tup The weather was far from perfect for December’s first parkrun this year, but it was a significant improvement on last week! As well as records relating to the increase in attendance, the big news in the Yorkshire and the Humber region was the announcement of the closure of Storthes Hall parkrun. 58/61 events took place across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Of the current regular series the only cancellation was Horton Park. Total attendance was 8709, an increase of 7369 (550%) over last week. York had the largest attendance this week with 463; the smallest was at Frickley Country (44). Of the 12 events that took place both weeks, 10 saw an increase in attendance and, somewhat surprisingly, two were lower. This is another week for a number of records: - 2nd highest increase in attendance ever (record of 7455 on 10 Mar 2018); only third instance of 7000+ - Greatest percentage increase in attendance. (Previous record 451% on 2 Feb 2013; only three previous instances above 300%.) New records were set for the number of events with attendances below 100, 120, 150 & 200: - under 100: 22 events (previous record 19 on 4 occasions, most recent 14/12/19) - under 120: 30 events (previous 27 on 26/10/19) - under 150: 38 events (previous 36 on 23/11/19) - under 200: 45 events (previous 42 on 14/12/19) The rolling weekly regional average of 12005 over the last two years represents a decrease of 1.2% when compared with the previous year (12150).
  4. Sheffield and Rotherham parkruns were all cancelled. Yorkshire parkruns - collect them all! Andrew Tup · tlSnai8mh148i9re9658490 · Storm Arwen wreaked havoc across the country and certainly across the Yorkshire and the Humber region, bringing winds of 50mph+ and snow and ice to most areas. All parkrunners should be grateful to the Run Directors who have difficult decisions to make in these situations, whether to cancel and disappoint many or to go ahead knowing there are potential safety risks. 12/62 events took place across the Yorkshire and Humber region. This was one of those weeks when it’s easier to list the events that went ahead: Beverley Westwood, Cusworth Hall, Frickley Country, Goole, Heslington, Pontefract, Roundhay, Sandall Park, Scunthorpe, Sewerby, The Cinder Track and York. Total attendance was 1340, a decrease of 10017 (88.2%) over last week. York had the largest attendance this week with 266; the smallest was at Frickley Country (37). All 12 events that took place saw a lower attendance than last week. (I can’t recall this happening previously.) Given all the above, it is certainly a week for record collectors. Take your pick from the following: - Fewest events since 3 March 2018 ( - Lowest region attendance since 25 Dec 2013 (1219); lowest on a Saturday since 23 March 2013 (617) - Largest absolute decrease in region attendance. Previously 2 Feb 2019 (9322) - Largest percentage decrease. Previously 3 Mar 2018 (83.7%; 10332 to 1684). Other than these there has only been one other drop of over 80% which was in 2009 when Woodhouse Moor was the only parkrun. - Cusworth Hall (42 events) and Heslington (123) had their lowest ever attendances. Three other venues had comparatively low attendances: Pontefract (lowest since 13/12/14, attendance 94), Scunthorpe (13/06/15, 126), Sewerby (13/07/13, 46) The rolling weekly regional average of 12028* over the last two years represents a decrease of 0.97% when compared with the previous year (12146). *For an explanation of how this is calculated see the note posted on 24 July 2021.
  5. Yorkshire parkruns - collect them all! Andrew Tup This week in the Yorkshire and the Humber region, there were two new attendance records. No prizes for guessing that both were at the two newest events: Roberts Park (294) and The Cinder Track (144). 59/62 events took place across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Total attendance was 11357, a decrease of 230 (2.0%) over last week. Huddersfield took bragging rights for the largest attendance this week with 580; the smallest was at Bowling Park (38). Of the events that also took place last week, 27 saw an increase in attendance, 31 saw a decrease and one, Humber Bridge (110), was the same. Events that had the same attendance were: Roundhay and Sandall Park both had 245, Penistone and The Cinder Track had 144 and Armley, Dalby Forest and Selby all had 114. Of the 63 events that have taken place across Yorkshire and the Humber, only one, Millhouses, has never had an attendance below 200. Their lowest attendance of 207 took place on 31 July 2021. The rolling weekly regional average of 12245* over the last two years represents an increase of 0.58% when compared with the previous year (12175). Biggest UK parkruns this week: Bushy Park (1034), Southampton (737), Cardiff (687), Poole (676), Cannon Hill (650), Chelmsford Central (592), Huddersfield (580), Clapham Common (534), Endcliffe (519), Nonsuch (515), 5 people joined the volunteer 250 club - 1 from Sheffield and Rotherham. Sheffield & Rotherham parkrun attendances for 20th & 21st November 2021. 112 - Graves-Juniors 108 - Hillsborough Juniors 41 - Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park -Juniors Total = 261 109 - Concord 519 - Endcliffe 196 - Graves 421 - Hillsborough 293 - Millhouses 127 - Castle Total = 1,665 318 - Rother Valley 89 - Clifton Park Total = 407 Overall Total = 2,333
  6. Which of the two lists of figures has the more impact? Which of the two examples get 3 time as much as the other? The power of the press.

  8. Yorkshire parkruns - collect them all! Andrew Tup · I suppose the biggest news across the Yorkshire and the Humber region was the return – after a four week absence – of the event at Normanby Hall. 59/62 events took place across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Other than the three events that haven’t returned since parkrun restarted in July, there weren’t any cancellations. The only occasions on which more events took place across the region were on 25 January and 8 February 2020 (60 events each). There have also been only two other occasions when 59 events took place (4 January and 1 February 2020). Total attendance was 11587, an increase of 263 (2.3%) over last week. Huddersfield and York continue to trade places for the largest attendance. This week the largest attendance – by one - was at York (574); the smallest was at Horton Park (35). Of the events that also took place last week, 20 saw an increase in attendance, 33 saw a decrease and one, Selby (93), was the same. As with last week, there were a number of ‘doubles’: Beverley Westwood and Graves both had attendances of 214, Cleethorpes and Skipton had 150, Bramley and Dalby Forest had 138, Millfield and Rotherham had 114, Cross Flatts and Potternewton had 97 and Cliffe Castle and Northallerton both had 74. The rolling weekly regional average of 12257* over the last two years represents an increase of 0.68% when compared with the previous year (12174).
  9. You post 3219 had some realism and analysis to it and garnered some thoughtful responses. It didn't take you long to retreat to this (above) rubbish that resorts to the literary equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and saying blah, blah, blah. This is what passes for debate with most Brexiteers.
  10. This make me so mad. Details details details, consequences, consequences, consequences, blah , blah, blah. Just get Brexit done! The majority of Brexiteers did't care about how it would be done and what the results would be . The majority of Brexiteers didn't care about Northern Ireland or Fisheries or any of a whole host of details and consequences. Just get Brexit done! - It didn't mean anything. Just a gut reaction to foreigners, to them against us, to being conservative with a very small 'c'. Close your eyes and it will be alright in the end. We are already more isolation and have a littler Briton as a result.
  11. Just what was the "democratic choice the British people made"? We were sold a pig in a poke and Brexit meant as many different things as there were voters. Many chose to vote for an extra £93 million for the NHS. Many chose to vote to stop people coming across the channel in small boats. As a result the Government were able to select the type of Brixit that suited them. We are now paying the penalty for that selection. I don't want to be pedantic but seeing as you started it.......... Just for completeness you need 50%+1 , of the people who vote, to win a binary referendum. ;0)
  12. Sheffield & Rotherham parkrun attendances for 6th & 7th November 2021. 97 - Graves-Juniors 85 - Hillsborough Juniors 42 - Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park -Juniors Total = 224 115 - Concord 489 - Endcliffe 191 - Graves 428 - Hillsborough 282 - Millhouses 91 - Castle Total = 1,596 258 - Rother Valley 100 - Clifton Park Total = 358 Overall Total = 2,178
  13. Too true. Theresa May got in a pickle because it became obvious that Brexit was a massive mistake and we were in an impossible situation in the negotiations. She is has her integrity and honesty in tact. But the Tory party only care about winning and being having power. They will get rid of anyone who has no chance of delivering that, ask Maggie! Honesty and integrity fall victim of that overriding pursuit in the Tory Party. They say you can fool some of the people all of the time and fool all of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. Thats not true of our democratic system. I just hope that they cannot fool 50% +1 of the people all of the time.
  14. A total strawman. History is not being rewritten its being remembered in all its ugly truth. Its the gloryfying of the practitioners of slavery that is being rethought, a more honest reflection should be shown. As for the royal family.......... do you really want to go there. What is the basis of their wealth?
  15. Yorkshire parkruns - collect them all! Andrew Tup Oh deer! Well that sumion at Normanby Hall. As for the rest of the Yorkshire and the Humber region, read on. 54/62 events took place across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Of the current regular events, as well as Normanby Hall, events were cancelled at Conyngham Hall, Penistone, Wakefield Thornes and Wetherby. Total attendance was 11324, an increase of 1395 (14.0%) over last week. The largest attendance was at Huddersfield (560); the smallest was at Horton Park (41). Of the events that also took place last week, 37 saw an increase in attendance, 13 saw a decrease and one, Goole (140), was the same. This was almost a complete reversal of the increases/decrease seen last week. There were plenty of ‘doubles’: Rother Valley and Rothwell both had attendances of 258, Cleethorpes and Temple Newsam had 164, Bramley and Halifax had 124, Concord and Cross Flatts had 113, Rotherham and The Cinder Track had 100, Cliffe Castle and Selby had 93 and Bowling Park and Potternewton both had 74. It seems remarkable that of the 16 weeks since the return of parkrun at the end of July, 14 weeks have seen cumulative attendances for the region in the small range of 10610-11956. The rolling weekly regional average of 12237* over the last two years represents an increase of 0.34% when compared with the previous year (12195).
