Run report 86

Although it was a little overcast and changeable this morning, there was a real buzz in the air for tonight Petzl Night Trail in Coed y Brenin.

The weather held off apart from a light shower. But, it was also a little warmer than expected too, so there were some warm runners by the second lap!

Well done to all our runners today, a special mention to Nathan GREEN, Peter BAILEY, Meirion JONES, Helen BURTON, Robert CARR, Deb LEITH and Sharron JEPSON all of whom ran PB's today.

A huge thank you to all our volunteers - fantastic to see you all, and have your support on parkrun's 13th Birthday!

This week's event was tail walked by a visiting volunteer Andy Doughty, many thanks to you. Do remember that if you or someone enyou know is planning to do Dolgellau parkrun as a parkrun tourist and a volunteering role appeals - please do get in touch.

However, we had some more first timers, and first time at parkrun. For those wondering how to register, the link is here - remember it's free, and works at any parkrun!

Well done to all our runners, especially Beth BRADLEY, Michele BIDONI and Marwan MIRZA who all recorded PB's.

Also, a huge, huge thank you to all our volunteers, some squeezing in support in their own holidays, before work, or before dashing off to Trailffest - your support of Dolgellau parkrun is greatly appreciated - Diolch yn fawr iawn

Run report 83

The volunteers arrived for this weeks parkrun expecting it to be cold, but it soon warmed up, and for the first time in September we had a dry parkrun. Well, dry in that there was no rain falling from the sky - didn't stop muddy legs from the puddles on the course though!

We've had the first package of new equipment from parkrun, so Katie, as Run Director was wearing a new blue and white vest, Zoe was sporting the fetching orange Tail Walker vest, and the other volunteers had fresh new Hi Viz.

All the participants did very well - 5 with new PB's - Gary Wyn DAVIES, Linzi COOPER, Helen JONES, Kaz OWEN and Joe BURKE - Gwych! Great!

Hopefully, we should have a few new bits for next weeks parkrun - and maybe a few pictures too!

Thank you ever so much to all the volunteers who scrambled at the last moment to make it happy! Diolch yn fawr iawn!

It didn't take long to decide that we'd try and add a few words to this report.

dank foggy humid misty muggy rainy slippery  soaked sodden soggy stormy drenched dripping drizzling moistened pouring raining saturate saturated soaking sopping soused teeming aqueous clammy dewy showery slimy slushy soppy teary water-logged watery wringing-wet

It was a little wet in places!

That didn't stop some hardy runners turning out, and actually helped some teachers make it to the start line. We had, as usual a lot of parkrun tourists, including a good contingent of Lliswerry Runners. Lovely to see you all out running.

A massive Happy Birthday to Rhian Pryer-Smith! Penblywdd Hapus i ti!

As well as a huge clap for every runner out on the course today - parkrun can't happen without your support - a well done to the following runners who all managed a PB despite the conditions.

Owen ROBERTS, Katie COLE, Peter CHAPMAN, Annmarie DALEY, Michael GRIFFITH, Peter BAILEY, Michael Andrew HODSON - Gwych!!

We can't put parkrun on without our amazing volunteers. We were joined by some tourist volunteers - from Dalby and Aberystwyth parkrun. THANK YOU to you all. A special mention to Pauline and Roger Bennett from Aberystwyth - your support as volunteers given your recent challenges is much appreciated.

We look forward to welcoming you all again soon, even if it is this time next year!

See you soon!
