Clermont Waterfront parkrun – Event number 299 – 17th August 2019

This week at the Clermont Waterfront parkrun, we had an impressive total of 223 participants. Everyone from runners to walkers to joggers made their way along the beautiful 3.1 mile course through Hiawatha Park. This weekend we had a few members from the new Lake Sumter State College XC team  as well as other local high school and middle school athletes. As cross country races quickly approach, this could be the last time you see these speedy youngsters. Don’t forget to thank the volunteers who dedicated their weekend to helping parkrun put on this even. There were 87 first timers and new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.

Junior Adolfo Saucedo Flores ran to a blazing fast time on the off-road course with a 17:55. The soft sand and sharp turns makes this course very slow, but Flores managed to punch out a sub 18 result! Jeremy Arguelles was not far behind in second with an 18:01. Rounding out a competitive race was Alexander Croy coming in at 18:28.

Topping the female podium this weekend was Reagan Parks in 21:27. Sophia Wilson and Mackenzie Hill came in second and third with times of 22:01 and 22:51.

The event was made possible by 14 volunteers:

Laura STABLES • Terry FRENCH • Janice BADER • Kendyl CARDWELL • Toni RICHARDSON • Jim PICKERING • Daniel WHITEHOUSE • Cadence WHITEHOUSE • Ben STABLES • Anne BENINGHOF • Sandra FLORA • Antonio BARTOLOME • Sharon JOHNSON • Heike NEUMANN

Clermont Waterfront parkrun
Event number 298

This weekend’s Clermont Waterfront parkrun was a breath of fresh air, literally. A whopping 67 first timers lined up at the start line at Hiawatha Park on saturday. The newbies made up more than 30% of all total finishers, a fantastic statistic because it means that more people than ever are hearing about and participating in parkrun events. Thanks to the many runners, volunteers, and family members who continue to spread the word about parkrun Clermont. This week 195 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.

William Troupe was the first place overall finisher this weekend with a time of 17:29. He was followed by first time junior Nicholas Khan who ran a 17:49 to finish close behind Troupe in second. Jeremy Arguelles rounded out a solid top 3 with a time of 17:51. All three men were able to dip under 18, making for a very speedy day.

Reagan Parks was the first place female finishers in a time of 21:56.

Clermont Waterfront parkrun Event #295

It was time to hit the trails this weekend at the Clermont Waterfront parkrun. Due to another event on the bike path, Saturday’s run was held inside Lake Hiawatha Preserve. Under the cover of the trees, the parkrunners raced through the scenic loop on their way to great results. This week 135 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 46 were first timers and 10 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

John Brodie topped the podium this weekend with a time of 19:01, a very impressive result considering the off-road conditions. He was trailed close behind by Birhanu Van Der Riet. It was Van Der Riet’s first ever parkrun, not too bad of a way to kick off his first event! One incentive to come out to parkrun is that, as a new comer, any time is a personal best time (and who doesn’t love getting a PB?) Rob Hunt, visiting from overseas, rounded out the top three with a time of 19:16.

Junior Reagan Parks finished first on the female side this weekend with a time of 23:10. (She then was able to watch her father, Lake County Commissioner Sean Parks, complete his 50th parkrun!) Andrea Cameron and Andrea Seabrook finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Not only do they have the same first name, but these two speedy ladies are from the same U.K. club.  They were part of a large overseas visitors sector this week that set aside part of their vacation to engage in some parkrun tourism and help us accomplish another fantastic event.

A special thanks to the volunteers who make the weekly runs possible. Don’t forget to sign up as a volunteer when you can, they are what keep the Clermont parkrun up and running.  There are a variety of positions depending on what you can do. There are even some options if you don’t want to miss out on running, including pre-race set up, trail walkers, run report writer, and post even takedown.

Clermont Waterfront parkrun Event number 292 29th June 2019

The Clermont Waterfront parkrun course record title is in new hands!  Congratulations to overseas visitor Johnathan Glen, who blazed to a new course record of 15:22. Not deterred by the summertime weather, he smashed the previous time by 17 seconds. He recently finished his colligate career running for the University of New Mexico’s successful track and cross country program. “It was a lot different than being back home,” says Glen, “Traveling away from home is never easy but the whole experience was very fun.”   He executed his goals of getting the record and running an evenly paced race, “I near off even split it, so I was happy with it.” Glen is currently staring his training block in preparation for the Euro Cross Country Trials. We hope he will return soon to break his own course record (assuming the current record stands upon his return).

This week 148 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 13 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part. Even behind the first finisher, it was a close and exciting race for the ensuing places. Luis Trias and Cody Adkinson battled it out for 4th and 5th place with 19:03 and 19:05. The second and third place finishers were missing barcodes, but came in at very fast times. It’s safe to say that it was a speedy day on the men’s side this weekend.  Junior Brianna Heirs cruised to her second parkrun victory in a row with a time of 20:42, notching a new PB in the process. She was followed by fellow high school athletes Kendyl Cardwell and Reagan Parks with times of 21:59 and 22:39, respectively.  The event was made possible by 14 volunteers:  Kimberly GROGAN • Kendyl CARDWELL • Steven GONZALEZ • Sally SCHADE • Butch HOLT • Daniel WHITEHOUSE • Shelly LINDER • Glenn ROBERTSON • Dottie HARDING • Judy RICHARZ • Denise MONTGOMERY • Sandra FLORA • Ron MUELLER • Jack ROEDER  Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Clermont Waterfront parkrun Results Page.  The female record is held by Kate BAZELEY who recorded a time of 17:17 on 20th February 2016 (event number 124), and by Ani VELTCHEVA who also recorded a time of 17:17 on 18th March 2017 (event number 173).

Clermont Waterfront parkrun Event #287

25th May 2019

It was another great weekend at the Clermont waterfront parkrun with over 142 participants, 38 first timers, and 16 new personal bests.

Lots of overseas visitors, local running groups, schools, and local people looking for a good early-morning workout all contribute to the summertime’s high turnouts. One group that frequents parkrun regularly during the summer break is the East Ridge High School Cross Country team. “I encourage all my runners to come out as many times as they can in the summer. Its something they can look forward to each weekend in the summer and helps make sure they are capable of performing when it reaches the fall.  They’ve pretty much been coming out here since it started back in 2013. They really enjoy it, it’s very consistent, and there’s a lot of good runners for them to match up with,” says Coach Grant Mollett.

The first place male finisher this weekend was Jeremy Arguelles. “This was my return to parkrun after missing a few weeks and it was a good one,” said Jeremey. Despite the oppressive conditions, he said he “felt really strong during the run, and during the last mile too.” “I love this whole Clermont area I love the people in the area, and I like to push myself,”  he added. Second place was Kevin Grogan in a time of 18:49. Rounding out the top 3 was John Michael Batchelor in 19:12.

Cherise Cardwell snagged her first ever parkrun win this weekend, finishing with a time of 21:44. Second place was overseas visitor Catherine Batchelor in 22:32. The weather was a bit of a shock but she had a great time nonetheless; “It was good fun, but hard,” Catherine commented, “It was nice to have a flat route but the heat was difficult”. She will celebrate a great run and continue her vacation by spending the day at Magic Kingdom and Universal. These Orlando theme parks help attract the many European visitors that bring more numbers, new friends, and greater diversity to the Clermont waterfront parkrun.

Clermont Waterfront parkrun Event #286

18th May 2019
Summer is almost in full swing, and the Floridan runners can definitely feel it. Slogging through the thick wall of humidity and stifling heat can sometimes seem unbearable, but it is always be more enjoyable when you are accompanied by your favorite group of fellow park runners. As the summer heat continues, remember to wake up early to come out to parkrun! The 7:30 am start time ensures you can beat the heat (as best as possible) and still be back in time to spend the whole day at the beach. All, of course, with beautiful views of Lake Minneola and a flat, fast route. This week 85 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 6 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.
Jarrod Shoemaker and Ollie Garrod both dominated the rest of the field with their sub-17 times. Jarrod came out on top with an extremely impressive time of 16:33, followed close behind by Ollie in 16:53. Rounding out the top 3 was Matt Wilder in 20:15.
