(Or Erddig parkrun Event #129 )

This week was a dry and pleasant day with another huge turnout with 314 runners taking part!

This week we decided to trial the reverse route again, hoping to get more of an idea as to whether it would be an improvement on the original route. For the second time we had very equal feedback in this love-hate story. All arguments, opinions and ideas are currently under review before a decision is made on a permanent change of route. However, please remember that we are looking to change the route for safety reasons and not to make it faster! Remember - it’s not a race!

The Run Directors appreciate all our runners understanding whilst we use you as guinea pigs during these tests!

And now, the amazing stats:

This week 314 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 55 were first timers and 49 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

And finally, please don’t forget that this fantastic event was only made possible by 21 unbelievably gorgeous volunteers:

Michael CLARKE • Alexandra EDWARDS • Elizabeth FEATHERSTONE • Rachel FLEMING • Fynn NOBLE • Rachel NICKERSON • Lily ROBERTS • Sandra JONES • Rebecca JONES • Peter NORMAN • Peter HOWELL • Nathan EVANS • Vicky BOLTON • Pip BOLTON • John DONE • Nigel SMITH • Siôn MEREDITH • Joan WALKER • Rosie NICKERSON • Julie ROWLANDSON • Charlotte MCGRADY

 

Erddig parkrun Event number 128 29th Dec

Wow, what a fantastic parkrun for our last of 2018.  we had a parkrun takeover by the Whitchurch Whippets and what a turn out.  Well done to you all and welcome back at anytime.  Thank you Fiona for sorting the team and for Ali, stepping in as Run director.  Also to Dean as a running photographer.  The rest of you are too many to mention but you were all great!    Also we had one of our largest fields as well....

Today also saw us reversing the course and using our alternative route....  This certainly was interesting and caused a lot of discussions!  Thank you for all your feedback so far but please do email us if you want to comment further, we are reading all the comments and emails regarding this.  The most difficult area was the finish area as it was difficult to keep the front of the house clear for returning runners to continue around the top wood.

Welcome to 10 club for Niamh BENNION and Joseph KNOX.  Also welcome to the 50 club for Daniel COLE.
