Run report number 146

With the festive season drawing closer and the weather being pretty wet and wild we weren't sure how many folk would head out to Dolgellau parkrun this morning. However, 26 runners braved the head wind and took part in our 146th parkrun. Well done to all who joined in, including 5 first timers to Dolgellau parkrun!

Thank you as ever to our volunteers who give their time so generously to allow parkrun to happen every week. If you haven't volunteered before but would like to give it a go we would love to hear from you.

Here's some further details of the results today.....

Run Report number 145

Although it has been a stormy week, this morning broke a bit better.

Again we had a large number of first timers, both to parkrun, and to Dolgellau. Absolutely terrific to welcome you all.

The PB bell was ringing loud again, with lots of people getting PB's (although the summary results beneath only record 3 PB's this doesn't show when a first timer at Dolgellau also gets an all time parkrun PB!) Congratulations to all that were chasing a time, and well done to all the runners and walkers who take part.

A special Thank You to Roger from Aberystwyth who came up with his wife Pauline to volunteer (after a Christmas party last night)- he has also donated a larger size tailwalkers vest for the colder months so that everyone can have a orange hi-viz that fits over layers. Diolch yn Fawr Roger!

Summary results beneath and a link to detailed results too.

See you all soon.

Run Report number 144

It may have been one gross parkrun for us, but it didn't stop the PB bell from ringing out loud today.

There were at least 4 people who were at the parkrun this morning who are in the process of setting up new parkruns, so it was lovely to make introductions and hope that the parkrun community will keep growing!

We had a nice jacket left with us today - if anyone would like to claim it, or knows who it belongs to please drop us a message and we'll make sure it gets to its owner.

Well done to all the runners taking part today, and a huge thank you to our volunteers.

Can't quite believe the next parkrunday is in December! Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Run Report number 143

This week Gerald was Run Director, and as much as we all joke about RD's being different to one another (competitive), it really is just banter. Gerald stepped in at short notice and made sure that parkun went ahead. Thank you ever so much. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

Gerald sent a few notes, and some of these can't be verified. As yet, we have no letters of no confidence - but we hope if you read this via Social Media you'll comment in support of Gerald!!

Gerald said:

Today’s parkrun at Dolgellau was a truly international affair with runners from as far away as Australia and Spain along with tourists from Preston, Coventry and Liverpool as well as the usual mix of local runners. There were a few late arrivals with the road works on the bridge catching a few people out.

Elliw Haf was not only the first runner home but possibly the first ever female runner to finish first outright.(not sure if that makes sense).

Tom Roberts was the first male.

The run director due to the issues above may be in trouble as all 45 runners were encouraged to send in letters of no confidence. When asked if he felt under pressure he responded by saying he believed his obligatory joke may have saved him although judging by the response not everyone was in agreement.

Gerald also extended a huge vote of thanks to Lisa, his wife for helping process the results!

The summary results are here, with a link to detailed results.

A massive well done to all the runners, and a massive thank you to the volunteers. You're all brilliant!

Run Report 142

It may have been colder, and there were a fair few other events on in the area, so, there were fewer runners on the Marian at 9am this Saturday. But, the spirit continued on as strong as ever.

There were a fair few runners from the local Min y Don outdoor centre, supporting Nia who has managed a fair few single laps, but this weekend was the time to finish the full 5km. Da iawn Nia, finishing in under an hour (with a good pee break!!!) and ahead of your Mum and Brother was fabulous. Llongyfarchiadau mawr!

Well done to all the runners, whether your first run, a PB, your 343rd run or anywhere in between. Fantastic to see you all out enjoying the course!

Diolch yn fawr, a big thanks to all the volunteers, it can't happen without you!

See you all again soon!
