Dare we say it, the summer really seemed to arrive at Dolgellau parkrun this week bringing with it many happy faces. Locals could be overheard trying to persuade parkrun tourists that it's always this sunny in Dolgellau.....Well, that may not quite be the case but we certainly made the most of it this weekend! Last week we trialled the PB bell, which was rung with pride a few times this week. This week however we thought we would open up one of our pop up marketing banners from parkrun HQ, which caused some consternation amongst the volunteers, some of whom made many attempts to pop it down until eventually it was back in the bag. Phew!
10 out of 36 runners were first timers to Dolgellau parkrun, we hope we will see you all again soon! 7 people achieved PB's, well done to you all. Over 2000 different people have now taken part in our little parkrun and no doubt that number will go up with the summer visitors.
A huge thank you as always to our amazing volunteers who turn out every week. If you are keen to lend a hand one Saturday please do get in touch, no experience necessary!
