Event #266

Parkrun UK started 13 years ago with 13 runners in Bushy Park, London, and has grown into a global phenomenon. Aberystwyth parkrun is 5 years old and was the 4th parkrun to start in Wales - now there are 23 parkruns in Wales and 2 more starting in the next couple of weeks! However we had our own landmark event this Saturday: we had our first VI (Visually Impaired) runner and guide. They did very well and enjoyed themselves, demonstrating that there are no barriers to participation in parkrun. Well done both.

A very wet parkrun!

Only one word to describe this event - WET! It started pouring with rain from the time of setting up, and was an absolute deluge for most of it, but actually dried up just before the final finishers! Well done to all volunteers and runners for braving those conditions.

Aberystwyth parkrun’s 5th Anniversary

It seems almost unbelievable that 5 years have gone by since the first Aberystwyth parkun. Back in 2012 when it all started, we were getting 20 - 30 runners a week and never imagined how big it would grow, how many friendships would be made, and how many people would get the running bug and go on to compete in proper races!

In this anniversary event, the weather was perfect, several people brought cakes, and we had an exceptional age span of runners from under 10 years old to over 80! Well done to all those who ran, and a big welcome to all our visitors and first-timers.
