Run report number 134

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!

The light drizzle forecasted wasn't always light, and wasn't always drizzle, but this didn't stop Gerald run directing for the first time.

The 48 runners might have been a little wet when they finished, but that didn't stop the PB bell getting rung a fair few times! Well done to everyone who ran - a great way to start the weekend.

A huge thanks to all the volunteers who made parkrun happen this week - now, off to wash and dry some Hi-Viz ready for next week!

This weeks weather was a bit drier than last week and the Mawddach Trail had dried up a bit from last week. It has to be said that the joke this week was pretty poor - but for those volunteers who didn't quite get it... "I was told that icy was the easiest word to spell, I didn't believe it, but I've written it down, and now I see why."

Included in the 79 runners this week we were joined by the RD and his family from Cassiobury, as well as Ultra Trail Wales finishers Mike Pollard and Katie Cole.

The volunteers saw a welcome return of Bumper Treweeks and his son, and a huge Diolch, Thanks to Huw for sorting the finish tokens back ready for next week - you'll have to register now Huw!!

Next week see's Gerald take the role of RD for the first time, this will be under close support from Lisa his wife. So if you're able to help out and volunteer, offer a decent joke and help, Gerald and Lisa will be really grateful.

Have a great week!

August Bank Holiday weekend and Ultra Trail Wales weekend put a bit of a strain on our amazing volunteers, but between some being up at 2am and turning out at 8.30am and others being up at 8.30am and finishing at 2am both events delivered a special weekend of running right in the middle of Dolgellau.

Some heavy showers had made the course a bit slippy in places, but 110 runners were out in force, some supporting runners at UTW and others enjoying a brilliant start to the weekend.

A huge congratulations to all runners, fantastic to see so many runners out enjoying Dolgellau parkrun.

To all the volunteers - Diolch o galon y gyd, a thank you to all for making a massively special weekend of running in Dolgellau.

This week's parkrun saw a good handful of first timers, as well as many visitors who were running Dolgellau parkrun for the first time. It's always wonderful to see so many new faces through the summer season and to receive feedback that Dolgellau parkrun is a lovely course. Sadly there was no view of the mountain today but that didn't seem to dull the enthusiasm!

Well done to all those who ran, jogged and walked this week and of course a massive thank you to our wonderful volunteers, especially our 2 visiting volunteers Johanna and Paul. If you are planning to come to run with us and aren't local to the area we always welcome family and friends to come and join in the fun in a volunteering role, just drop us a line at dolgellauoffice@parkrun.com.
