  1. Sheffield & Rotherham parkrun attendances for 15th & 16th February 2020. 121 - Concord 199 - Graves Graves-Juniors, Cancelled - Windy and part of the course under water. 444 - Hillsborough 316 - Millhouses 92 - Castle 572 - Hallam Total = 1,744 282 - Rother Valley 230 - Clifton Park, New Attendance Record, +56 Total = 512 Overall Total = 2,256
  2. Andrew Burgess-Tupling So last week all Yorkshire & Humber region parkruns were completed before the storm hit in the afternoon. This week, there were a number of cancellations, principally as a result of damage suffered last weekend, but also in anticipation of Storm Dennis this Saturday. There were 50/60 parkruns in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Cancellations were at Brighouse, Castle Howard, Centre Vale, Fountains Abbey, Goole, New Earswick, Normanby Hall, Penistone, Storthes Hall and Wetherby. Of 50 events completed both last week and this, 12 had higher attendances and 30 were lower. Total attendance was 12387, a decrease of 4118 (25.0%) from the previous week. Bowling Park & Catterick both had attendances of 201, Barnsley & Sewerby had 177 and Humber Bridge & Nostell had 124. Niche stat: The attendance of 572 at Sheffield Hallam means that the only attendance figure between 10-627 never recorded for any parkrun in the region is 538. The average weekly attendance over the last 12 months has increased by 24.8% (10347 to 12909). The mean attendance per parkrun per week over the history of parkrun for the region is 212.4; the median is 172. NB Doncaster parkrun has now changed its name to Sandall Park. Given that the location is the same, all records for Doncaster are transferred to the new name.
  3. I agree. But they have been dishonest in everything but word. The intimation is that there would be free trade. Call it spin or lying (as the less sophisticated will say). Its what, most, politicians do and why we need to examine every single word they say or the simpler solution, don't trust a word they say. What we don't need is apologists covering for them. It make you seem as bad as them.
  4. Its not rocket science - "Make it cheaper and they will buy". My evidence is 5p/10p plastic bags at supermarkets. Simplistic it may be but in the end how effective has it been? Allow the enthusiastics to bite the bullet and pay for their preferance but the vast majority will vote with their wallets. But, Boris and the Conservatives have made this pathetic, empty ecological gesture . They may have a 'green wash' effect on the 2025 General election, heaven help us if it does. I'm not holding my breath - its worked before and will, probably, work again.
  5. Sheffield & Rotherham parkrun attendances for 1st & 2nd February 2020. 147 - Concord 291 - Graves Graves-Juniors, Cancelled, Amber warning = High Winds 508 - Hillsborough, 9th Highest Attendance 393 - Millhouses 79 - Castle 669 - Hallam Total = 2,087 433 - Rother Valley 136 - Clifton Park Total = 569 Overall Total = 2,656 Hallam News includes - ". . . . Fair warning for the Stars and Stripes themed parkrun on 22nd Feb in commemoration of the Mi Amigo crash 76 years ago, and a request for some parkrunners to step up and volunteer to help park rangers ready our new route pre the launch of Endcliffe parkrun in due course. . . . ." https://www.parkrun.org.uk/sheffieldhallam/news/
  6. Straight question straight answer = Because they can cut our bodies open and fix bits that are going wrong. Pretty awsome in my book. Is that really what you were asking? - (passive agressive)

  9. ‎Andrew Burgess-Tupling‎ to Yorkshire parkruns - collect them all! Cool, but clear weather helped contribute to a full complement of events in the Yorkshire & Humber region, including an inaugural! There were 60/60 parkruns in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Bowling Park was added to the list. Of 51 events completed both last week and this, 20 had higher attendances and 31 were lower. Total attendance was 17613, an increase of 2252 (14.7%) from the previous week. The cumulative attendance for the region was just 135 short of the record set two weeks ago.

  10. The point is that a straight, white, male cannot have a credible opinion about any subject involving minorities . Unless its totally supportive of said minorities. Ask Laurence Fox. This fact is the reason that a significant minority of the country voted for Brexit.
  11. Sheffield Hallams run report, probably, the longest run report ever with the usual stuff plus 70 photo's and additional paragraphs on:- (readers are encouraged to dip in to read the para's that tickle their fancy!) Early arrivals at the Sheffield Hallam parkrun ball Animal Magic Respect everyone's right to participate in parkrun in their own way Underway (including 2-way running in the first 1k) Duke of Edinburgh volunteers Welcoming Millhouses parkrun Refugees Celebrity sightings International parkrun News Random shout outs (my favourite) Statsgeek treats Mi Amigo crash anniversary https://www.parkrun.org.uk/sheffieldhallam/news/2020/01/18/469-wowsers-all-happening-today-four-funnel-finish-millhouses-refugees-and-much-much-more/?fbclid=IwAR3yjK0PoEHGwdanSNeyY-E80_GTgqO9RPIfgDnI91BykH_EQ84hFHsSIYg .....but still no mention of when Hallam becomes Endcliffe.
  12. I'm a republican. I would gladly be rid of the lot of them. However, these two don't rule any of us in any way. As part of the Aristocracy they don't 'rule' anyone. We had a civil war to sort that out a long time ago.
  13. Andrew Burgess-Tupling There were fewer parkrun events in the Yorkshire & Humber region this week, and consequently fewer parkrunners. However, those that did attend still did so in historically high numbers. There were 51/59 parkruns in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Cancellations (mainly weather related) were at Bradford, Castle Howard, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Millhouses, New Earswick, Oakwell Hall and Skipton. Of 50 events completed both last week and this, 24 had higher attendances, 24 were lower and two (Dalby Forest (237) and Wetherby (117)) were the same.
