Run report number 161

We can always tell the weather by how long runners stay around after they finish. People were around for a while today, so the dry weather, and crisp day was about for some social time around the finish.

Well done to all the runners that joined us, lovely to see some old friends, and new faces. Fantastic!

A huge thank you to all our volunteers, old hands and new joiners. A special thanks to Steffan Owen who joined us for his first run as tailwalker - an amazing come back so soon after life threatening battles with Leukaemia and bone marrow transplants. We'll see you soon, getting ready for your come back 10k in the summer.

See you all soon!

Run Report number 160

Possibly one of our wettest and windiest park runs ever didn’t deter 46 hardy runners including a large group from The Welland Valley Triathlon Club from completing the puddle filled course.

Well done everybody. We had our 7000th finisher, Robert Welsh and exceeded 3000 different runners. A particular thank you goes to the marshals for volunteering given the awful conditions.

Lets hope the weather is better next week. Could it be worse?

Run Report number 159

What a blustery morning, lots of streaming eyes as the cold wind made it hard to look down the first out, and second out. That didn't stop 33 runners including a first timer zip round the route. Of course some lashing rain just as the tailwalker finished was pretty cold too. Well done all!

A new volunteer Yvonne joined us this week, and did a fantastic job on timing, thanks Yvonne, and all our volunteers, it just doesn't happen without you all!

A special mention to Gerald and Lisa who have been long term volunteers at Dolgellau, who this week have been confirmed as event directors of the new parkrun Pont y Bala which starts on 13th April. Fantastic news, and whilst you'll be missed (and Betty) in Dolgellau, absolutely terrific to see parkrun thriving in the south of Snowdonia!

If you look carefully at the summary results, you'll see that the 4th finisher next week will be our 7000th finisher in Dolgellau, who will it be?? If we had 11 new runners, then we'd reach 3000 different runners and walkers who would have completed the course.

Fingers crossed for slightly better weather next week, and we'll be watching the milestones!

This time last year, the Beast from the East arrived. If you can't quite remember what it was like - well, it was so cold that even the cones needed a hat!

This year, it was a little bit warmer, and we had a whole lot more runners and joggers. In fact we're creeping ever closer to a milestone with 2976 different runners now having completed Dolgellau parkrun with barcodes. And 6,963 runs - so we might well hit both milestones at the same weekend!

Congratulations to every single finisher, you are all amazing. This weekend our first finisher was within 10 seconds of the course record, but didn't have a barcode with him, so the actual time isn't shown in the results.

We're still a little bit away from a round thousand milestone for volunteers, with 135 volunteers having completed 1528 volunteer occasions. Again, Dolgellau parkrun wouldn't happen without all the hours contributed by volunteers. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

This weekend there were a fair few requests as to how to get the volunteering opportunity emails. The webpage is here - but it's so simple, here it is:

How to Get involved

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.

Future roster

You can see an event's future volunteer roster via their specific future roster page. To get in touch with the event directly, just send an email to dolgellauhelpers@parkrun.com.

If you want to get involved, there is always full training, and support, if you're really unsure, shadowing one of our stalwarts is the easiest way to see how each role works.

Here's the summary results, with a link to the detailed results.

It was a warm and beautiful day in Dolgellau, and with the change over in half terms (between England and Wales schools) there were a fair few runners around enjoying the warmer weather - even a few vest tops were seen.

Well done to two of our volunteers - Jane, tailwalking completing her 50th run, and Eric (junior) completing his 25th volunteer roll. Enjoy your new t-shirts! As always a huge thank you to all our fabulous volunteers!

Congratulations to all the runners, joggers and walkers, it was lovely to enjoy parkrunday with you all.
