Who doesn’t love parkrun?
Who doesn’t love poring over maps and statistics?
Who isn’t fascinated to see where Tyne Bridge Harriers have been in the world?
The map shows the location of each of the world’s 897 parkruns. As new parkruns are added so these will be added to the TBH parkrun map. A TBH badge marks those parkruns where a club member has ran. Clicking onto the badge will bring up a pop-up information box telling you the date of that parkrun’s inaugural run, the date when a TBH first visited the parkrun and the name(s) of the first TBH.
In addition, the pop-up box will identify the fastest male and female TBH at each parkrun together with their times and the name of the member with the highest age grade together with the age grade.*
The map will be updated after the consolidated club parkrun statistics become available each weekend. Anyone who ‘claims’ a new parkrun for TBH will see their endeavours rewarded by the appearance of the TBH badge and their glory acknowledged in the parkrun round-up feature on the website.
As of now, TBH have participated in 240 out of the 437 parkruns in the UK and 272 out of 897 global parkruns. That’s 55% and 30.39% respectively. We’re not seeking world domination (yet) but wouldn’t it be great to turn as many red pins as we can into TBH badges? Christmas and New Year means food, drink and extra parkruns and, as many of us will be travelling away from the North East, the festive season provides an excellent opportunity to seek out those, as yet, unconquered parkruns. As you would expect, no virgin parkruns remain in the North East but, in the UK and beyond, there are still plenty of parkruns to choose from.
Please note the club reserves the right to dish out special praise and kudos to the first TBH to put in an appearance at the Chelyabinsk parkrun…especially if it’s during the winter.
* Not all of the information has been added to the pop-up boxes yet. We’re currently about halfway there!
