Aberystwyth Parkrun #346 – March 16th

This week 97 people braved the blustery grey morning to run, jog and walk 5k.

This included 6 first timers, and 10 park run/walk/joggers recorded new Personal Bests. This saw our PB Bell get some serious ringing throughout the morning, starting with a ring for a sub-25 finish from Ethan Jarvis, and finishing with a ring for a sub 1h10 finish from Gordon Land - both excellent achievements. Also this was Rob Clarke's final UK Parkrun before emigrating to the USA - apparently there is no Parkrun in Seattle (yet).

Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.

Student Takeover Day!

A huge THANK YOU to the students who took over the volunteering roles at Saturday's parkrun which enabled more of the regulars to run it. Everything went smoothly, the weather was perfect, and we had a great turnout of 109 runners despite our neighbours, Llanerchaeron parkrun, having their first birthday and drawing record crowds. Congratulations Llanerchaeron! Our PB bell is proving very popular with anyone who is (quite rightly) proud of their run, and indeed there were a good few PBs on Saturday - maybe ringing the bell is an added incentive?

Hardy parkrunners battle Storm Erik!

It was a very windy parkrun on Saturday 9th February but a few runners managed to get PBs - fortunately we had a new PB bell to help them celebrate, though everyone who ran deserved to ring the bell under those conditions! The park was showing a bit of spring colour with white snowdrops and purple and yellow crocuses. We had a few visitors from cancelled parkruns, and some tourists who had stayed overnight in one of the seafront hotels so hadn't had much sleep with the waves crashing on the prom during the storm. Welcome to all tourists, visitors and first-timers, and many thanks to all the lovely volunteers who made it all happen.
