Run report number 116

Dare we say it, the summer really seemed to arrive at Dolgellau parkrun this week bringing with it many happy faces. Locals could be overheard trying to persuade parkrun tourists that it's always this sunny in Dolgellau.....Well, that may not quite be the case but we certainly made the most of it this weekend! Last week we trialled the PB bell, which was rung with pride a few times this week. This week however we thought we would open up one of our pop up marketing banners from parkrun HQ, which caused some consternation amongst the volunteers, some of whom made many attempts to pop it down until eventually it was back in the bag. Phew!

10 out of 36 runners were first timers to Dolgellau parkrun, we hope we will see you all again soon! 7 people achieved PB's, well done to you all. Over 2000 different people have now taken part in our little parkrun and no doubt that number will go up with the summer visitors.

A huge thank you as always to our amazing volunteers who turn out every week. If you are keen to lend a hand one Saturday please do get in touch, no experience necessary!

Bank Holiday weekend, dry and a little bit warmer? What better way to start the long weekend than a parkrun?

For those that don't know Dolgellau and Ludlow parkrun are exactly the same age. This weekend it was lovely to welcome Ludlow's founding Event Director, Peter Cartwright and his wife to Dolgellau. Lots of chats about similarities, and differences. One of them being defibrillators.

A year or more ago our ED Katie has been off doing talks to the Rotary Club of Mawddach , after much hard work on their side, this weekend we had our AED sparking on the side of Gwyndaf Evans show room. An absolutely amazing resource for our small community, especially in a place where there is so much sport, recreation and work traffic on the Marian. Lets hope we never have to use it! A huge thank you to all at the Rotary.

Ludlow raised much of their money from donations from runners. We at Dolgellau parkrun have pledged to donate as much as we can to the cause. At parkrun, the runs don't handle the money, it gets looked after centrally, with our name on it, so you can be sure that any donation only benefits the parkrun in Dolgellau.

You can donate to oarkrun, but clicking the donate button right in the middle of the About Us page. This can be either a one of donations, or a small regular donation. Anything is gratefully received and will be used to support Dolgellau parkrun.

Out on the course, there were loads of runners, young and old, some with 327 runs under their belts, and other completing their first parkrun. Some walking, some flying. some working towards 5km on a C2%k programme, some using parkrun as training for bigger events. It doesn't matter to us at all why or how you join us. We love seeing you all smiling and enjoying the course, working on your own goals. Some lucky runners were confident to ring the PB bell, some not so sure. Congratulations to those getting a PB, and well done to all of you. There is a link to the detailed results from the summary results beneath.

As always, parkrun can't happen without our volunteers, Diolch yn fawr pawb / Thank you all for your support.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend, and hope to welcome you back to Dolgellau soon.

This week we introduced a new addition to Dolgellau parkrun - the P.B bell! It was rung a couple of times to celebrate personal bests, with much applause from runners and volunteers. Feel free to give it a ring if you know you've achieved a PB for your run with us.

Well done to all 45 runners who ran, jogged and walked the course this week. We welcomed 14 first timers to the Dolgellau course, which is fantastic, we hope you come back and see us again soon!

A big thank you to our awesome volunteers who make Dolgellau parkrun the friendly, supportive event that it is. A special thanks this week to Ben Wells who took photos of each runner on the bridge. If you ran and would like to see your picture check out the link to our flickr photo account here.

What a difference a week makes - so many bare arms and legs for runners and volunteers this week!

The local Goldrush Trail race had drawn some tourists, and also with a 1pm start gave the volunteers a chance to go run this wonderful race.

This week saw 4 PB's well done to Wil STOCKFORD, Harri DAVIES, Gemma BIKE TRAILER and Eirian ARWYN. With the increase in temperature these are PB's to be especially proud of! From next week, if Ash can get it sorted in time, we hope to have a Ships Bell just after the finish tokens - so all you getting a PB can let everyone know about it!

A massive thanks to all our volunteers, young and old - Arthur, hope the knee is better soon!

Summary results are beneath with a link to the detailed results.

It was definitely Spring like on the Marian this morning, with our wonderful group of parkrun runners and volunteers all looking much more relaxed in the warm, dry weather. Clearly the good conditions encouraged some quick times with 12 people achieving personal bests today! Well done all!

Thank you to our 13 brilliant volunteers for helping today go smoothly. We are never quite sure how many runners we will get around Easter time so your additional help was much appreciated. Diolch yn fawr.
