We had a little bit of a scramble this week to find enough volunteers, but right at the last minute we had every space filled and one extra special addition to our ordinary roster!!
The Wnion was burbling away more full than it has been for a good few months - worth thinking that there were probably a good few Salmon slipping upstream whilst parkrun was on!!
We had two volunteers that aren't registered with parkrun (yet) - Kim Brett, and Richard Turner - so whilst they're not down beneath, they were very definitely there and making parkrun go smoothly.
If you want to register, you can follow this link https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ and register - this allow us to add you to the roster, or for you to receive a time when you run... okay Kim?
For those that want to receive emails about when we're looking for e-mails you can follow the advice from parkrun.
Finding out about Dolgellau parkrun volunteering opportunities couldn't be easier. Simply open a recent parkrun newsletter, results email or volunteer email, click on 'manage my profile', then 'email options', then select the events you'd like to hear from and click 'save opt-in events list'. You will then receive regular emails from those events letting you know all about their volunteering opportunities.
The one extra volunteer, also was helping things go smoothly. Nia has become a big sister recently, and whilst Dad and Baby Aran were hanging out in the car, Nia gave the biggest 3,2,1 GO! she could muster with Mum's help...those who have been around Dolgellau parkrun for a while know that Mum, Aran and Nia were regular one lappers at Dolgellau right up before Aran arrived, so a huge CONGRATULATIONS/Llongyfarchiadau to all of the Hobbs from all at Dolgellau parkrun - even TImmy Trumpet was out tooting!!
As regularly happens we had a lot of first timers in Dolgellau, as we as a couple of runners brand new to parkrun. A fair smattering of PB's through all the results suggests that the slightly cooler weather was helping a few runners. Also seeing a few runners back after injury was lovely. We really do appreciate that all the runners out have their own goals, and it is really lovely to see you all enjoy (maybe afterwards) the beautiful Marian Trail with parkrun on Saturday morning.
Well done to everyone running - you are all amazing!!
See you soon!
