Running Numbers


Hi

We love sending out informative and sometimes amusing e mails to our runners. This one is very direct, for which we make no apologies, as it concerns safety. The funny ones will follow as we approach race day.
We want to make you aware that the deadline for transfer of places and any other alterations to the database has now gone. We now have a significant amount of work to ensure that your personalised running number and timing chip arrives with you a week or so before race day. Please do not ask us to transfer, as quite simply we are unable to do so. If you have moved house and not told us, it is your responsibility to visit your old address and retrieve your race pack.
Tempted to hand your runner number to someone else? If yes then read on.
You absolutely must not do this. As race directors we need to know who is out on the course. Any medical emergencies, and they do happen, means we need to contact next of kin who you made us aware of when entering the race. In a recent race, a runner thought it would be a good idea to give their mate their number to save a few quid. That runner became seriously ill and was taken to hospital and the ‘next of kin’ contacted. They travelled 100 plus miles to be by their bedside only to arrive and realise it was not their off spring, but their friend. True story, Don’t do it.
We hope you will respect this.

With just over a month to go, we really hope that your training is going well and you are looking forward to a fabulous race day.

 

All the best

Nicola and Neil

Security Advice

In view of the current increased security threat facing everyone in the UK, we have been provided sound advice by the police on how we can all stay safe. There is no need for anyone to be alarmed, we want everyone to enjoy the race as normal, but ask that you remain alert and vigilant.

Please report any unattended baggage or suspicious activity to an event marshal.

If using the baggage buses, you must show your runner number prior to handing the bag to our volunteers.

Don’t leave bags unattended or anywhere they could cause a security scare. And never agree to look after anyone else’s bags, no matter how plausible their story.
In an emergency, if you think there is an immediate risk, always call 999 and look around you for help from race marshals.

Remember, the chance of being caught in a terrorism incident is small. But if it happens – Run, Hide, Tell.

Great Grimsby interesting Facts

According to legend, Great Grimsby was founded in the ninth century by a Danish Viking. The name Grimsby is thought to have originated from the Grim’s by, or ‘Grim’s Village’, based on Grim – the Danish Viking thought to be the founder of the town.

Grimsby is today a thriving modern town offering excellent facilities for education, shopping, leisure and work.  Grimsby is undergoing a radical transformation as part of a 25-year vision for the town, including the recently completed £6million town centre regeneration project, key developments on the docks, and exciting leisure developments in the town centre and beyond.

Once the world’s largest fishing port, the town is now benefitting from the rise of the offshore renewable energy industry and is a European centre for food processing.

North East Lincolnshire in a nutshell

North East Lincolnshire – home to the UK’s largest port and the seafood capital of the country.  North East Lincolnshire covers 192 square kilometres and includes the port towns of Great Grimsby and Immingham, the resort town of Cleethorpes and the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The population is about 157,300 and there are about 70,000 households.

Chart-topper Ella Henderson, motorbike ace Guy Martin, Strictly Come Dancing’s Kevin and Joanne Clifton, Miranda star Patricia Hodge, elephant man John Hurt and Australia’s most-despised soap character, Mrs Nell Mangel, played by actress Vivean Gray, are all from the borough.

Legendary music producer and former fish factory worker Rod Temperton is from Cleethorpes. He wrote and produced many of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits including Rock With You, Off the Wall and Thriller.

Elton John’s 1974 track ‘Grimsby’ was written by Bernie Taupin about his time in the town as a teenager. One line reads: “Oh England you’re fair, but there’s none to compare with my Grimsby. Through nights of mad youth, I have loved every sluice in your harbour.”

North East Lincolnshire’s key business sectors are:  ports and logistics, food processing, energy and renewables, chemical and process, housing and development and the visitor economy.

Grimsby top facts

Grimsby Dock Tower was designed as hydraulic tower by James William Wild and he modelled it on the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena, Italy. It stands 61m (200ft) high and was completed on 27 March 1852.

A miniature version of the Port of Grimsby can be found at Legoland Windsor – it features the Dock Tower, Corporation Bridge and other local landmarks.

Grimsby and Immingham handle more cargo than any other port complex in the UK

Grimsby is at the forefront in serving the developing offshore wind energy industry. Our headline sponsor DONG Energy plus Centrica, RES Offshore, Siemens and E-on have all based their offshore operations and maintenance teams at the docks.

As a result of feedback from our runners and an operational de-brief of key team members we have made some slight changes to the course. The issues we needed to overcome were

Crowding outside of the town hall where the HQ is located and the start line was.

Potential to collide with bollards on the loop inside People’s Park

Limited park access for spectators during the race as we had to cordon off the full inner circle, save for a few crossing points.

Make it a more safe and enjoyable race for you.

As a result we have moved the start line just 300m away into Doughty Road. The route into the park is direct from the bandstand, so still great for runners and spectators alike.

Charity

Dear Runner

DSC00900You have done a wonderful thing without knowing! Your registration for the Dong Great Grimsby 10k this year means a donation of £1 has already been made to the Health Tree Foundation (HTF).

The HTF is the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation’s Trust dedicated charity. Operating within Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole hospitals, HTF grants wishes requested by families, patients and staff to enhance the Trust’s services.

Wishes can vary from specialist equipment, e.g. portable machines to locate veins to allow less painful insertion of needles during chemotherapy, to more comfortable waiting room chairs.

I am a consultant at Grimsby A&E where a number of wishes have been requested, including renovating the family room and courtyard. The family room is often where bad news is broken, and families gather to say their final goodbyes to loved ones, so we are determined to make this a more comfortable environment.

To help towards fundraising efforts, I will be pushing myself physically and mentally by running the London Marathon this April and then along with my colleague, Dr Oltunde Ashaolu, I’ll be running the Dong Great Grimsby 10k in July. Personally, I don’t know which will be more challenging, as Dr Ashaolu will probably need dragging across the finish line!

Dr Ashaolu and I would love nothing more than for you to consider raising funds for the A&E wishes – we are an incredibly dedicated team in the A&E department and we can’t tell you how much we would welcome your support!

If you’d like further information on joining our fundraising efforts, please email the HTF Community Champion, Lauren Alexander: lauren.alexander@nhs.net or call her on: 01472 874111 ex 1009. Lauren can also provide you with a HTF running vest, sponsorship forms and support with setting up an online giving page.

The Health Tree Foundation’s mantra is that small changes make big differences, and take it from me, they really do. Every wish granted will assist my team in delivering the very best care to the people in our communities, and it goes without saying that we will always be here for you and your families.

See you in July!
