It just doesn't stop being lovely on a Saturday!!

After we, erm, forgot our PB a couple of weeks ago, our wonderful crochetastic volunteer, Christine delivered some neon bunting for the bell - yes, it did look a little like a bikini this weekend, but that's because we didn't want to block the banner for the upcoming Dolgellau 5 mile on the 28th July. Thank you for the bunting Christine!!!

This weekend was full of visitors, from Aberdeen, from all over the UK. Our volunteer tailwalker was joined by her Mum, who was our first (we think we've seen) Nordic Walker. In total 45 first timers in Dolgellau.

With a good few races on this weekend and next weekend, a few runners were taking it easy. But also, the heat making it pretty hard, that said 4 people got a PB. Well done to all those completing the course, absolutely brilliant to see you heading off. The volunteers were all wondering what theme tune would work for this weeks run, and with the amount of dust kicking up on the trail, the RD thought "Zulu" would be the most appropriate.

A huge thanks to all our volunteers, you're all fantastic. Also, Ash completed his 100th parkrun as a volunteer this weekend too.

Let's hope the weather holds for next weekend!

A link to detailed results is in the summary beneath.

The weather has been just the same - warm! A little more dust flying around at this weeks parkrun though! Dust and wedding dresses!

We had runners from Kirkcaldy, Belfast and Christchurch NZ - so Iwe'd like to reassure them that whilst we have had 2 stag parties at Dolgellau parkrun befiore, Gary in his wedding dress (!) was definitnely a first for us.

Well done to all the runners, whether you PB'd or were taking part for the first time, parkrun is the same distance for you all, though your challenges might all be different. You're all welcome.

A massive thank you to all the Volunteers who make the run such a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Diolch yb fawr, you're all fantastic.

There was a huge sigh of relief at parkrun this week as the missing PB bell was returned! A huge thank you to Frank from the Ship Hotel in town who saw it and collected it in for us to keep it safe. Big thanks to you Frank! There were plenty of visitors as always but this week we had 2 visiting volunteers, Mary and Pauline. Thank you so much to you both for you help and we hope you enjoyed your Dolgellau parkrun experience and come back to see us again soon. 20180630_090810

Post parkrun this week a few of the volunteers and runners had a fantastic time taking part in a rather different activity....knitting. Thanks Meg for providing the wool and as ever the entertainment! ;)

Run report number 122

There was a great vibe at parkrun this weekend, with blue skies and plenty of sunshine. 58 runners, joggers and walkers joined Dolgellau parkrun 26 of whom were brand new to the course. We had representatives from 17 different clubs, which is fantastic! It's always lovely to see the variety and colours of club t-shirts and vests at parkrun. We hope you all had a fantastic run and enjoyed the rest of your time here in sunny Meirionnydd!

There were 9 PB's on the course this week and the PB bell was rung accordingly. We are hoping the PB bell can be rung again next week but first we need to find it and wondered if anyone could help? It was accidently left at the Marian where it is located on the fence on Saturday morning. We have had a few people letting us know that they saw it there but no one has yet let us know that they have it..... If anyone can help us find the PB bell it would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Dolgellau park run 16/06/18
It was a big weekend of sport in the Dolgellau area this weekend. Just as the full marathon runners were setting off through the trees of Coed y Brenin, 36 runners, joggers and walkers set off on the Marian for Dolgellau's 121st parkrun.

Of the 36 participants there were 15 people who had never run at Dolgellau parkrun, some of whom were visiting Dolgellau to watch and support the Ladies Cycle race, starting from town on the Sunday. It's fantastic to see Dolgellau so busy and valued for the wonderful outdoors that it offers. We hope you will all come and run with us again!

A huge thank you as always to our amazing volunteers, we couldn't do it without you! Many thanks to volunteer Ben Wells who took photos of each participant this week, you can find these on our Flickr page http://www.parkrun.org.uk/dolgellau/photos/
