It would appear that a poor weather forecast (there was a lot of rain around Yorkshire just before 9am) and the start of the school summer holidays resulted in a significant reduction in parkrun attendance this weekend.
There were 44/46 parkruns in the Yorkshire & Humber region. Cancellations were at Sheffield Hallam (second week in a row; this time for Pride event) and York (races).
Total attendance was 7685, a decrease of 1872 (19.6%) from the previous week. This is the lowest attendance across the region since 17 March (5330).
Of the 41 events that took place both weeks, three (Cleethorpes, Fountains Abbey and Heslington) saw an increase in attendance and 38 had a decrease.
Heslington had the largest increase nationally (112), Brighouse the largest national decrease (269) and Doncaster was the national median (182). (Thanks to Elliott Line for those.)
Armley and Skipton both had attendances of 142; Brighouse and Nostell both had 162.
Out of 10625 parkruns over the region’s history, 9999 have had an attendance of 467 or fewer.
The average weekly attendance over the last 12 months has increased by 8% (8479 to 9151). The mean attendance per parkrun per week over the history of parkrun for the region is 199.2 (this has fallen since last week - by 0.1); the median is 159.

Good evening Yorkshire & Humber region parkrun geeks (et al). There are some belting stats towards the bottom of this week’s summary as well as all the usual stuff.
There were 46/46 parkruns in the Yorkshire & Humber region (first full complement since launch of Armley).
Total attendance was 10716, an increase of 3031 (39.4%) from the previous week.
Of the 44 events that took place both weeks, 39 saw an increase in attendance, four had a decrease and one (Sheffield Castle (55)) was the same.
In a week of ‘doubles’, Normanby Hall and Rother Valley both had attendances of 282, Hillsborough and Wakefield Thornes 269, Brighouse and Doncaster 246, Armley and Skipton 210 (second consecutive week these two venues have been identical), Cross Flatts and Selby 121, and Concord and Horton Park 79.
Harrogate had its 100,000th ever runner today (seventh Y&H parkrun to achieve this): Rachel Johnson (350th position).
Out of 10672 parkruns over the region’s history, 5336 have had an attendance of 159 or fewer; the same number 160 and above!
6666 parkruns have had an attendance of 203 or fewer; 7777 have had an attendance of 254 or fewer.
The average weekly attendance over the last 12 months has increased by 8% (8494 to 919. The mean attendance per parkrun per week over the history of parkrun for the region is 199.3; the median is 159.5.

Almost perfect weather for parkrunning at the start of Autumn.
There were 44/47 parkruns in the Yorkshire & Humber region (cancellations at Catterick, Heslington (second consecutive week) and Temple Newsam).
Of 44 runs completed both last week and this, 18 had higher attendances and 26 were lower.
Total attendance was 10317, a decrease of 898 (8.0%) from the previous week.
Doncaster (356) had a record attendance for its fifth birthday.
There were 238 runners for Rother Valley’s 238th event.
There were 531 runners at both Huddersfield and York, 171 at Dalby Forest and Nostell and 76 at both Concord and Wetherby.
The average weekly attendance over the last 12 months has increased by 8% (8671 to 9394). The mean attendance per parkrun per week over the history of parkrun for the region is 200.4; the median is 161.

Looking forward to the new route at Graves parkrun. I think they're trailing it tonight, not sure when they'll fully roll it out though. Won't miss the bottleneck on that narrow path by the 'lake'!

Those first 2 corners come close to the start.
Reversing the new route may be an option?

Someone on Facebook (who did the recce run) was suggesting moving the start further down the main path, so starting closer to the lakes. By the time it gets to the sharp bend that goes downhill behind the cafe, it will hopefully have thined out by then?

So maybe that's a solution, I don't know; am sure whatever they come up with it'll be an improvement!

Stat of the week - parkrun barcode number 5 Million has been issued.
There has been some shenanigans over a false profile getting it*. Therefore, HQ have withdrawn the profile and re-issued it to a bone-fide applicant.


*Below is a link to the podcast "with me now".
A good listen with lots of parkrun debate including Runny McRunface (*see above), prison parkruns, the place of the faster runner in parkrun and much more.

parkrun Peniston ?
There is a try out run from the Skate Park at 8:30 on 13th October to guage local interest. Details are sketchy at the moment but the Trans Pennine Trail is tipped as the probable route.

A less than clement forecast and cool conditions for parkrun’s 14th birthday saw a lower attendance than has been recently experienced.
There were 47/47 parkruns in the Yorkshire & Humber region (first full complement since launch of Cliffe Castle).
Of 46 runs completed both last week and this, seven had higher attendances and 39 were lower.
Total attendance was 9474, a decrease of 1957 (17.1%) from the previous week.
Total attendance was the lowest since the start of the school summer holidays and the second lowest since Easter. It was, however, still marginally above the 12 month average.
There were 165 runners at both Nostell and Skipton, 134 at Cleethorpes and Dalby Forest and 55 at Middleton Woods and Sheffield Castle.
The average weekly attendance over the last 12 months has increased by 8% (8725 to 9413). The mean attendance per parkrun per week over the history of parkrun for the region is 200.7; the median is 161.
