Erddig parkrun takeover by Whitchurch Triathlon Club Event number 122 17th November 2018

Wow, what an amazing morning.  Many thanks to Whitchurch Triathlon club which allowed our usual volunteers to either run or have a much deserved lie-in....  They did a brilliant job of supporting the 281 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 45 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

It was great to welcome runners from Chipping Sodbury, Bury St Edmunds, Reading, Birkenhead, Blackpool (a recent C25k finisher), Wepre and Chester - I really hope you all enjoyed the mud, leaves and route through Erddig NT.

A special well done to Rhiannon TANSLEY who made the 10 Club this week!  Also a massive well done to Nigel SMITH  and Cerys WILLIAMS who made the Volunteer Club (well done both on earning your purple shirt).

The event was made possible by 29 volunteers:

Tracey Linda WILSON • Bob WILSON • Alexandra EDWARDS • Gillian FOWLES • Libby DUDLESTON • Julie HUGHES • Nicholas HOLMES • Alison HOLMES • Malcolm SHONE • Andrea TURNER • Gareth OWEN • Samantha WILLIAMS • John DONE • Nigel SMITH • Joan WALKER • Stuart PINCHBECK • Colin JONES • Debbie DURRANT • Lee BATESON • Jane RANFORD • Steven BATESON • Nicola HUMPHREYS • Rachel BOOTHMAN • Charlotte MCGRADY • Joanna BROWN • Harry BROWN • Paul BROWN • Stuart BENSON • Andrew NICHOLSON

Running in historic locations research project

Dear Erddig parkrun community.
We have been asked for our help with a research project concerning running in historic places. This research project has been approved by parkrun research group and has also been sanctioned by Erddig National Trust. The help needed is to answer a few questions on a survey which should take about 5 minutes. We’ll let the researcher explain …

“my name is Aimee Turner and I am a runner, Architect and part-time student on the Conservation of the Historic Environment MA course at Birmingham City University.

The topic of my MA dissertation focuses on the growing trend of using historic locations to host running events and what opportunities this presents for improving people's well-being, access to visit heritage and future prospects for managing historic properties.”

The survey is here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/historicparkrun and you are under no obligation to complete it, and can withdraw at any time, you are free to omit answering any question should you so wish. Her deadline is 19th November.

Kind regards
Alex and Sarah
Co-event Directors.
