Event #294

A great turnout of 130 runners considering the wet weather - perhaps there was nothing better to do on a rainy Bank Holiday weekend! Anyway, spirits were high and several milestones were achieved: Rachel's 50th parkrun, Jane's 200th parkrun, and Julia Davies' completion of running every parkrun in Wales - congratulations all! Maybe it was the cakes that drew the crowds......

Event #291 – Spring at last!

After seemingly endless weeks of floods, storms, ice and snow, AT LAST it felt like Spring this morning - pleasantly warm with a light breeze, still a lot of puddles around but not actually raining! This makes life so much easier for the volunteers, but most of the runners worked up a sweat in the warmth, having become accustomed to dressing for sub-zero temperatures lately.  Well done to all our runners, and a big welcome to all the visitors and first-timers.

Event #288 Rain again!

Despite the cold, wet and gusty conditions 80 hardy people completed the 5k route with smiles on their faces. There was a hint of Spring in the air with snowdrops, colourful crocuses and even a couple of daffodils in the park! The grass, however, was a sea of mud after all the rain, and the ducks think the "ponds" are permanent and have taken up residence. Huge thanks to the volunteers, and to the Rugby Club for their coffee and baps!
