A sparkly snow scene met our parkrun participants in Dolgellau this morning. With so many parkrun events being cancelled due to the weather it was touch and go as to weather the route would be too icy. However, the morning brought above freezing temperatures so it was decided that we would go ahead, with caution to the runners as to the obvious hazards!

Once again our volunteers outnumbered our participants, which is a testament to those who give up their time so generously, even when the lure of a warm bed was an attractive option this morning! Thank you all so much for supporting your community and visitors to our area.

It was a little warmer this week, but also a bit more dampness in the air.

20 runners made it to the start line - 4 PB's . Male and female first finishers, and couple, Tomos Roberts and Elliw Haf.  Mike Pollard also got a PB. Arthur Stockford also got a PB, whilst his younger brother Eric claimed his 10th junior run. Well done all!!

On the volunteer side we were again really lucky, and hugely grateful. Our tailwalker had been on crutches during the week, and did an amazing job, and completed the course (no mean feat, thank you Sian). We also had a guest Volunteer Steve Hobbs, who isn't registered with parkrun who saved the day at the last minute and was barcode scanner for the first time this week too. Thank you all!

As our lovely volunteer Alex said today - with the pre-briefing entertainment, maybe people no longer come for the amazing coffee in town after parkrun, maybe they come for the terrible jokes and stay for the coffee. Look out for Alex nearer to Christmas running her 50th parkrun in a TuTu!

Hope we see you next week - the long range forecast suggests it might be a little whiter next week, if it's true!

A little chillier than the week before, when we were 243% bigger than the week before, so did get a mention in the statistics. Also, apparently, we're well known in Milton Keynes parkrun as some of our regular runners, the Stockfords, were down there.

Anyway, the weather didn't phase our amazing volunteers, although there were some very chilly fingers on the buttons! Thank you all, and for those of you who are migrating South now, see you in February!

And our runners, well, there were a few icy blasts ratting down the Mawddach Estuary. Didn't stop our runners though. Six of them managed to get their legs moving fast enough to get a PB. Well done Ruth APPLETON, Richard BARRATT,  Gerald COOPER,  Lesley POLLARD,  Ian LONGBOTTOM and Melanie BARRATT. Also, well done to all the runners who matched their PB's certainly locals Owen and Sioned did - Gwych!

Summary results, and a link to the detailed results beneath.

We also worked out, in the warm, with coffee, that the 13th January 2018 will be our 100th run. Looking forward to it already!

Here's to a few crisp winter days! See you soon!

After being the smallest parkrun in the UK last week, it is quite possible that this week we might be the biggest percentage increase in participation. Every cloud having a silver lining and all that, we could be in dispatches two weeks in a row!! If you like numbers, it's worth knowing about this page.

It was a little chilly and a little damp, so all the volunteers and runners, as usual made 9am on a Saturday a great place to be, whatever the weather.

Of the 24 runners, well done all, and we noticed on the finish line, there were a lot of people really pushing themselves this week. Three runners managed a PB, so an extra well done to Jack PICKETT, Darren PICKETT and local runner, Gwion ROBERTS. A results summary, and link to detailed results are beneath.

Those of you who paid attention at the run briefing, of course you all did, are now able to tell the difference between a Crocodile and an Alligator - don't forget, you never know when it might be useful!

Without our amazing team of volunteers parkrun wouldn't happen, a huge Thank You / Dioch yn Fawr to all / pawb.

See you all soon!

Run report 91

We can safely say that this week's Dolgellau parkrun represented the true spirit and ethos of what parkrun is about for communities. Our volunteers outnumbered our runners by 50% but we were all glad that we made the effort to turn out. The volunteers enabled the runners to enjoy their weekly social run and the runners gave the volunteers that sense of doing something worthwhile for their community. There were smiles all round and runners feeling very pleased with their high finishing places! Well done to all who came out on a cold November Saturday morning to support our (little!) parkrun.
