Himmel parkrun virtual coffee event #5 – this Saturday, August 1st

20200625_060713

Hi parkrunners! We sure do miss you! Himmel park is lovely and green, with people slowly returning to enjoy the space it has to offer. But, every Saturday has a parkrun shaped hole in our beloved park! This week we are back once again to connect via Zoom coffee, after your morning workout.

It's going to be a hot and humid one this weekend, so remember our friendly guidance on heat safety if you are planning to work out on your own outdoors. Be sure to be especially vigilant if wearing a mask, and remember to take water breaks and catch your breath when you can. Enjoy your fitness routine, and stay safe!

Several parkrunners have tried (not)parkrun lately - have you? Why not give it a go? You can register a time on any 5k route you choose, anytime throughout the week, by logging in to your parkrun account and clicking the "(not)parkrun" button. It's that easy! Hope to see your name on the (not)parkrun results board soon!

Have a nice week parkrunners, and we hope you can join us this Saturday at 9am for a coffee and chat on Zoom.

Himmel parkun virtual coffee – Saturday July 4, 9AM

20200624_165231

Himmel Park is as beautiful as ever, with lush grass and amazing shade. Many of us have been enjoying it separately as we do our weekly workouts! If you happen to be trying a 5k in the park, why not try (not)parkrun? (not)parkrun can be accessed from your parkrun account and allows you to record your virtual 5k time once per week - run it anytime, anywhere, and post your time! You can then visit the (not)parkrun results table to see how you, and other Himmel parkruners, did this week. Check it out here: https://www.parkrun.us/himmel/results/notparkrun/.

Your Himmel parkrun family would like to wish you a happy 4th, and hope to "see" you this Saturday on Zoom! We will meet at the same parkrun Zoom time (9AM), with the same parkrun password - "don't forget your _______."

Thank Alan!

He found this documentary on the "Western States 100" which was just released for free on YouTube for the first time and thought that it might help our fellow parkrunners get through this time.

Hi All here is a fun idea if you want to be inspired for a virtual parkrun while we are all social distancing.

Run the himmel parkrun strava segment (as long as the park is clear and you can keep your distance).

you need a gps watch or a gps enabled smartphone and the free "Strava" app

see the course and results here:

TRAC is here to help!

Dear Tucson Running Community,

During this time of great uncertainty and change, some local runners have been thinking through ways to support and connect our community. After a series of remote meetings, we came up with TRAC, the Tucson Runner Aid Community. TRAC is a mutual aid group for runners and their families in the Tucson and metropolitan areas as we all face the unprecedented challenges of the COVID19 Pandemic.

Tucson runners have already done the hard work of building community over many years, and we know that strong communities are what will get us all through this safely! TRAC aims to provide support, information, assistance, and rapid response to anyone in our running community, along with their families.

Ways TRAC can help:

Information: We will serve as a hub for accurate, up-to-date, and vetted info

Errands: for essential items such groceries or prescriptions or pet food

Connectivity: combating isolation using FaceTime, Zoom, or phone calls for:

  • happy hours & coffee hours
  • game nights
  • runner-specific classes and webinars

Funds: we are developing a small community fund where people in our community can donate if they wish, or request emergency financial support for essentials

Business: we will support runner-owned businesses and businesses that support runners by serving as a bulletin board for announcements from these local businesses

How can I reach TRAC?

You can reach us to ask for support, offer an idea, or join the coordination team. Please reach out via:

Email: email the team at

TRACtucson@gmail.com

Facebook: search “TRAC (Tucson Runner Aid Community)”. You will be asked to answer 2 brief questions in order to join. Note: we are trying to keep this to runners and their families, just so we don't build something too big to function!

This is a community effort and a work in progress. Strong communities make us safer and healthier, we will do everything we can to support one another through this challenging time.

Sincerely,

TRAC

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update March 12th – HIMMEL PARKRUN IS CANCELLED THROUGH THE END OF MARCH

To everyone in the Himmel parkrun community - we would like to thank you for joining our event, and for sticking with us since our very first parkrun in November of 2018.   It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of Himmel parkrun for the rest of the month.  I understand that this will be disappointing, due to the limited impact that COVID-19 is currently having on our community in Tucson; however the safety of all participants is always our top priority.  This decision has been made by parkrun's global headquarters for ALL parkrun events in the following countries, effective immediately:

Denmark
Finland
France
Germany
Ireland
Italy
Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Sweden
USA

At the present time, we are anticipating Himmel parkrun will resume

SATURDAY APRIL 4TH AT OUR SPRING/ SUMMER START TIME OF 7AM.

Further updates will be posted here, and shared with you via email or text (if you are opted in to parkrun communications) as soon as more information becomes available.

Thank you again for being part of our parkrun community!   Have a nice break, and stay well - we look forward to seeing you all again in April!

With best wishes,

Your Himmel parkrun Event Team

Malcolm, David, Alicia, & Lisa
