A 25 Milestone & Snow Flurries…Report #97

Conditions & Participants

While snow flurries were gently falling from the sky throughout our event, warm temperatures earlier in the week made it so that our course was not an ice rink. Our third bridge did freeze and was quite slick, so all participants were advised to walk upon crossing. This didn’t make for super fast times, but I think all enjoyed our 97th installment of parkrun. A total of 5 parkrunners came out to complete the course.

Results

This week we celebrated Adam reaching his 25 runs milestone. He first joined us in May of 2022 and has quickly racked up the milestone points. He is currently sixth on our first finishers list and holds a course PB of 23:44. Adam was our first finisher this week for his 25th run. We’re proud of his accomplishment and so happy to have him be part of the parkrun community.

Volunteer Call & Appreciation

Thanks to all of our volunteers who made this week’s parkrun possible - David, Karen Meredith, and Nancy. We’re particularly grateful to Karen for trying out volunteering for her first time. She jumped right in with our timekeeper role. If you’d like to volunteer at a future event, please email thirdcreekgreenway@parkrun.com. We can always use more volunteers and will make sure you find a role that’s fun for you. See our future volunteer roster or our spreadsheet to help us fill in our gaps. Feel free to check out the roster for one week away all the way through April. A core volunteer is expecting her first child in April and could especially use the help of others with taking on course setup. If you’ve never done course setup before and are interested in learning the ropes, email thirdcreekgreenway@parkrun.com and we can arrange training.

We had a total of 6 tourists, coming from Michigan and England. Welcome to Jason, Joanna, Michael, Owen, and Peter. It was great to have you all join us. Seventeen total participants completed the course.

Volunteer Call & Appreciation

Thanks to all of our volunteers who made this week’s parkrun possible - Meredith Hale, Caryn Hughes, Alex Snyder, Lauren Snyder, Jeanne Stokes, David Talmy, and Evelyn Talmy. We’d also like to give a special shout out to the partner of one of our parkrunners, who was kind enough to take and share her photos. Thank you!

Kudos also go to Lauren, who reached her junior volunteer milestone today by acting as a parkwalker. Lauren got back from fall break vacation early on Saturday morning, but told her mom she fancied a walk at parkrun. She came out, supported us in our parkwalk campaign, and earned her 10 volunteer instances milestone!

If you’d like to volunteer at a future event, please email thirdcreekgreenway@parkrun.com. We can always use more volunteers and will make sure you find a role that’s fun for you. Our required volunteer roles are run director, barcode scanner, timer, tail walker, and event day course check/set up.

If social media or photography are your thing, there’s also an opportunity to help out using your creative skills. See our future volunteer roster to help us fill in our gaps. We’re also trying out a new spreadsheet that you can enter your name in ahead of time to help us plan for events further in the future. Let us know what you think.

Next week's parkrun

We are back next week at 9am! Don’t forget to register and don’t forget your barcode . . .

Throughout October we’ll be participating in the global parkwalk campaign. While we strive to always be welcoming to walkers (there is absolutely no such thing as going too slow or holding us up), we’ll be highlighting walking at parkrun during the month of October in a few ways. When possible, we’ll have multiple tail walkers instead of just one. In addition, if you plan to walk at parkrun and want to promote the inclusivity of our event, you can ask to wear a park walker vest. While this campaign lasts only in October, we plan to continue to grow and change to be even more inclusive to walkers.

A 60 minute 5k is just as far as a 15 minute 5k

Since launching on October 26 2019, Third Creek Greenway parkrun has had 303 individual finishers and 54 individuals volunteering. Congratulations to Michael Backes on being our 300th finisher!

Newcomers and PBs…Report #77

Conditions & Participants

After many humid weekends, we got a reprieve this Saturday. Slightly cooler temperatures and a bit of a breeze aided with some fast times. This week we had thirteen parkrunners. Almost half of the field this week was composed of participants who had never run the TCG course, with six newcomers in total! It’s great to see so many new people finding parkrun. Of these newcomers, five participated in their first parkrun ever. We hope Rowan, Nate, Ron, Wallace, and Bryan enjoyed their experience. Thank you all for trying out parkrun. Several of our new parkrunners were coming from out of town, though only one was a true tourist. Chris came from London to vacation in the U.S. and see his brother, Rowan, who lives in Nashville. Both Rowan and Chris drove over from middle Tennessee to take part in our event. Nate also drove over from the Nashville area to test out his fitness before his cross-country season got started. Note that Nate arrived late, so his time in the results is not accurate (he ran the 5k in approximately 21 minutes). If you are visiting us from out of town, please feel free to email us ahead of time to ask for directions. We know the Safety City parking lot isn’t the easiest place to find.

Results

This week two of our parkrunners achieved personal bests. Congratulations to Brandon and Adam on their PBs! Brandon took 12 seconds off his previous best time and was our first finisher across the line for his first time. You can now find Brandon on our first finishers list. Adam had a stupendous run and chopped 2 minutes and 38 seconds off his previous best time. Well done!

On the women’s side, Rebecca was our first female finisher. Rebecca is working on recovering from foot surgery and it’s great to see her running again. According to her, this was the first time in a while that general fitness rather than her foot was holding her back. Congratulations on making progress. We can see it.

Thanks to all of our volunteers who made this week’s parkrun possible - Amanda Burnette, Meredith Hale, Nancy Henry, and Alexander Snyder. A special shout out goes to Nancy Henry for run directing for her very first time. She did an excellent job and also learned how to set up the course and process results. Anyone who has already done the other required volunteer roles can be a run director. Please let us know if you’d like to try it out.

Upcoming Events

In the coming month and a half, we have two slight changes to our regularly scheduled parkrun. Note that on August 27th, we will be cancelling parkrun to make way for the CrossKnox 15k. You can register for that event here. In addition, parkrunners could take this opportunity to try out one of the three parkruns in a 5-hour radius from us. These parkruns include the Northside Beltline parkrun (in Atlanta), the Joe Creason parkrun (in Louisville, KY), and the Little Sugar Creek Greenway parkrun (in Charlotte, NC).

On September 17 we also have a special parkrun planned with our friends at RunKnox. If you’re on Facebook, you can express your interest in that event here. Note that everyone is welcome to participate, whether you are connected with RunKnox, parkrun, or neither group.

Juneteenth… Report #70

For our 70th parkrun event, we celebrated Juneteenth with a quote from Angela Davis on the course - “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.” We hope this message helps encourage everyone to seek the change they need in the world.

This week we had a total of eleven participants. Of these, two were parkrun first timers. Welcome to Brandon Houston and Samantha Shea!

Welcome Brandon!

Event #67 was at the start of a very warm day in Knoxville - likely one of many to come over the summer.  The heat, however, did not stop 15 parkrunners joining us on the Third Creek Greenway parkrun.

We had three tourists and three first timers this morning.  Our first placed runner, Phillip Malloy joined us from the Durham NC parkrun.  It was an exciting race to the finish between Phillip and parkrun first timer Ben Fitzpatrick.  Phillip just finished first with a great time of 18.02. It is great to see folks pace and challenge each other.

Phillip and Ben both with fast times this morning.

Alexander Brooks returned today and managed to shave a whopping 36 seconds of his time, bringing him into the teens with a time of 19.24.

Kathryn Berry, visited us from England and was the first placed female today.  Impressively, today was her 291st parkrun.

Event #67 was obviously a morning for PBs with both Melissa Reagan and Verena Hadden getting PB's and finishing 5th and 6th respectively.

No parkrun next week 05/28/2022 due to all members of our core team being on vacation.   Do check out the KTC Expo if you are in town though.  https://ktc.org/events/expo-10k-and-5k/

Six of these parkrunners were tourists. We had the pleasure of having Euan Bowman, parkrun North America Territory Manager join us this morning for our parkrun. In addition we had two visitors from England - Colin Smith and Mary Johnson. Two other parkrunners were visiting us from Michigan’s Lillie parkrun - Charlotte Ezzo and Mahesh Sarode. Despite a late start due to a last second train, these two managed to catch up to our tail walker. A record number of trains went by during our parkrun this morning (three in total!). Finally, Anita Greyling of South Africa completed our course for the third time today.

Lindy Carroll also continues to progress and took a minute and 6 seconds off her time from last week. She even outsprinted Caryn, who is known for her fast finishes, in the final 100 meters! Last, but not least, Anita Greyling bettered her time by 30 seconds. Congrats to everyone on their progress.

Knoxville Marathon Weekend… Report #59

Knoxville got relatively lucky with the weather this weekend. It was sunny and windy with temperatures in the 40s at the start of parkrun. As the Knoxville Marathon will be taking place this weekend, the mild weather is particularly welcome. This past fall the marathon took place in very wet conditions. Two of our regular parkrunners came out today for a shakeout run before they race tomorrow. Good luck to Savannah and Martin as they complete the 13.1 and 26.2 courses respectively. Martin entertained us with a reverse sprint finish (aka, slo mo) that almost tripped up our timekeeper!

While we had no personal bests or milestones this weekend, all of our runners are putting in the work for these accomplishments in the future. In total we had seven participants. Note that Tricia unfortunately was kept from starting on time due to a train, so four to five minutes can be taken off her finish time. She took it all in stride. We were glad to have her back out for her third parkrun appearance.

David was our first finisher this week. This was his 12th time finishing first, earning him second place in our list of parkrunners with the most first finishes.

Return of International Women’s Day… Report #57

It occurred to me this morning setting up the course that the last parkrun in 2020 we had at Third Creek Greenway took place on International Women’s Day. Two years later, it’s good to finally celebrate this day again. Quite a few parkrunners came out in their purple milestone T-shirts to recognize the occasion. Chalk messages supporting women were also shared on the course. In the coming weeks, Third Creek Greenway will experience a new first. Next month will be the first time ever that Knoxville’s parkrun has taken place in April! After this, TCG parkrun will have finally taken place in every month of the year.

20220305_083420

For International Women’s Day we had a great group come out, including a few new women runners. A special welcome is due to Lisa Graves, David Green, Molly Green, and Melissa Reagan. The Greens also brought along their three children, who completed the course and cheered on their mom. Thanks to all for joining us and also to those who encouraged these first timers to try us out. In total, 13 individuals completed the course.

This week we had one parkrunner run a personal best. Diane took a minute and 19 seconds off her previous best and broke the 40-minute barrier with a time of 39:30. Lately Diane has taken every opportunity she has when not helping us out by tail walking to chip away at her time. Well done! This was Diane’s 22nd parkrun. Her 25 milestone is getting very close.

For the third week in a row, Martin Cordell was our first finisher! He’s been training for the Knoxville Marathon, which will be his first marathon. From his parkrun results, it seems his training is right on track. Martin is currently sixth on our list of parkrunners with the most first finishes. Today was his 17th parkrun.

A dedicated bunch… Run report #55

As has been standard for the start of 2022, this Saturday temperatures dipped back down to below freezing for parkrun’s 9am start! The cold temperatures seemed to keep all but the most dedicated parkrunners away this morning. We had four parkrunners take on the course - Martin, Nancy, Rebecca H., and Caryn. Martin was first across the line and came within 30 seconds of his PB last weekend despite not having Evan to run with. There were no PBs set today, but each of these parkrunners put in performances that will continue to keep them on track for their goals.

Martin is our first finisher

All of the parkrunners also chipped away at milestones. For those who may not know, one way parkrun encourages consistent exercise is through awarding “milestone” T-shirts after participants complete a certain number of runs or volunteer instances. Currently parkrunners can receive a T-shirt after completing or volunteering at 25, 50, 100, 250, or 500 (!)  parkruns. Junior participants - those under eighteen - are eligible for T-shirts after 10 participation or volunteer instances.

At today’s event, Martin completed his 15th parkrun. Nancy finished her 43rd parkrun and is now just seven parkruns away from her 50th milestone. When she reaches this mark, she’ll be our first homegrown 50 runs milestone recipient. In addition, we were excited to see Rebecca back for her fourth TCG parkrun and her fifth parkrun overall. Finally, Caryn completed her 40th parkrun today and her 11th volunteer instance. She’s just a few parkruns behind Nancy to reach the 50th milestone.
