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!
