Scorchio!!!

Blue sky, lots of shorts, even on the volunteers. Costa de Dol did not disappoint!

A busy weekend for local events in Dolgellau, The David Smithies fun day, Trail Marathon Wales and good weather! Is there a better place to be, we think not!

The run briefing included a mention of the Great Get Together, something that we feel that parkrun does every weekend at 9am on a Saturday. A huge thanks to Alison for the vegan biscuits and amazing cake.

Well, it was damp! That was it though, the forecast for way more of the wet stuff to fall, so we escaped it, mildly.

This week has been a tough week to fill the volunteer roster -so a huge DIOLCH / THANK YOU.

Now, our amazing runners.

We had a lot of tourists this week. And some really significant runs too!

Run Report number 68

We've had a warm start to June in Dolgellau and thankfully on Saturday we had a dry parkrun despite showers earlier in the morning. This week Dolgellau parkrun was joined by runners from 16 different clubs, including a runner from Sidmouth in Devon! We love seeing so many people from all across the country and sometimes even other countries coming to enjoy our friendly, local parkrun.

There was a big shout out to the volunteers this week who continue to make Dolgellau parkrun happen. In such a small community it can be challenging to recruit volunteers every week and sometimes our volunteers like to have a go at the run too! If you or anyone you know would like to have a go at volunteering with us, please get in touch. We always make it fun and everyone is welcome. No particular skills are needed just the willingness to have a go.

Here's a little more on the results from parkrun this week.....Congratulations to those 7 new PB's!

After a warm and thundery night, the Saturday morning did at least stay dry. Though the warmth of the day before made running pretty hard.

Fantastic to see so many visitors on the start, and also so many local runners. Well done to everyone taking part - with one Birthday runner, declining a chorus of Happy Birthday. A special mention in the run report for Deb KOJS - PENBLWYDD HAPUS!!

Our first finisher, and local runner Owen ROBERTS getting a bit of help from course record holder Russ on the way to a PB. PB's too for Lisa BARDELL, Damian BARDELL, Mandy SZNOBER. Very warm for PB's Llongyfarchiadau / Congratulations to all.

Possibly a first for us too with Paula Sky Tunnadine, joining us for the first time and executing her trademark cartwheel finish!

As always, parkrun doesn't happen without our fantastic volunteers. Diolch pawb, Thank you all.

Hope to see you next week!
