Erddig parkrun Event number 84 20th January 2018

This week was a very wet week but appeared to have been enjoyed by all 197 people ran, jogged and walked the course.  There was definitely lots of mud, one young child had a lovely pair of white trainers, really sorry mum but they were not so white at the end. But he certainly appeared to have enjoyed the mud....  Visitors were from Tewksbury and Poole this week, it was lovely to welcome then and really hoped that the rain and mud did not put them off.

We now have several young people who are taking part volunteering as part of their Welsh BACC or DoE so please encourage them, as it is not always easy doing the volunteering through the rain and ice....

A massive congratulations to Evie EVANS on reaching the 10 club, well done.

There were 26 were first timers and 33 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.  30 new people signed up this week and we really look forward to welcoming you.

Erddig run report #event 82: 6 January 2018

With parkrun getting the go ahead for Saturday, I breathed a sigh of relief. With a full to bursting rota of volunteers, I would've hated to have to cancel another one, especially the first one for 2018.  The journey to Erddig was one of those mornings where it just didn't seem to get light and by the time we arrived we seriously were considering head torches!  Fortunately the dark clouds made way for slightly lighter ones and we could actually see the parkland over Erddig.  Big thank you to the National Trust rangers who removed enough of the tree across the track to enable you all to navigate the route safely.

This week 179 awesome people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 28 were first timers and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.  Numbers were down this week probably due to the North Wales Cross Country Championships being held at the Rhug Estate!  29 First Timers, fantastic and awesome effort put in by all of you.  Welcome to Erddig and hope to see you all next week.  The conditions were not the best with the ever present mud so kudos to the 11 of you who achieved a personal best.  They were Steve HARRISON, Elaine SARGENT, Nadine PILKINGTON, Angharad JETLEY, Keith WILLIAMS, Dylan JONES, Nathan GALLEY, Joshua PHILLIPS, Jennifer PAINE, Caz CAFFREY, and Lauren TOMKINSON.  Well done to all of you.

The event was made possible by 20 volunteers and I thank each and everyone of you for your efforts on Saturday.  Every participant received lots of encouragement, support and cheers from 1st over the line to Rob our Tail Walker who was last over the line.  Thank you for being the best team out there :)

Alexandra EDWARDS • Henry KNEW • Philip WALKER • Rachel FLEMING • Barbara WARD • Gillian BREEZE • Sarah BARKER • Rachel NICKERSON • Rob PARKIN • Michael EDWARDS • Michael CANTWELL • Lily ROBERTS • Sandra JONES • Sharon MARRIOTT • Jacqui LINCOLN • Samantha WILLIAMS • Vicky BOLTON • Pip BOLTON • Martyn LINCOLN • Rowland BARKER

The Festive parkrun #event 81 23 December 2017

After a two week enforced break it was good to be back at parkrun although the early morning alarm was a bit of a shock to the system.  No parkrun at Erddig on Christmas Day or New Year's Day so this was our Christmassy parkrun.  The word was out, fancy dress or christmas jumpers and hopefully silly hats and dressed up dogs. And you did not disappoint.  The dogs were more excited than anyone put together!

The day started with Erddig looking beautiful and quite ethereal with a low mist hugging the ground, but pretty soon the sun came out and created something magical around the course.  Many thanks to Sam for some amazing photos and if anyone else has any photos of the event, please feel free to post them to the flickr group or facebook group page.  We really would love to see them.

This week 244 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 35 were first timers and 36 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.  We also had tourists from Bath, Bristol, Derby, Leeds, Leicester, and Stockport. Thanks for coming guys, glad you enjoyed our gorgeous parkrun and super friendly volunteers, of which there were 19.  Many thanks and Merry Christmas to these amazing people who made the day the best.

Richard Stuart WESTWOOD • Laura Jayne WESTWOOD • Alexandra EDWARDS • Henry KNEW • Helen RICHARDSON • Rachael BENNION • Cerys WILLIAMS • Sarah BARKER • Lily ROBERTS • Sandra JONES • Jacqui LINCOLN • Samantha WILLIAMS • John TIPPING • Karon STACE-ROBERTS • Vicky BOLTON • Pip BOLTON • Tony CAPSTICK • Martyn LINCOLN • Rowland BARKER

But someone else made the day fun particularly for the many children taking part, and that was the incomparable Liz Evans who came as The Grinch and stayed in character from the briefing to the end of her run.  Thank you so much Liz, everyone loved you xxx

Matt WILLIS jogged home in first position (he makes it look so easy!) and wasn't far off beating the course record .... again.

Eden O'DEA was the first female across the line, congratulations Eden, amazing run :)

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Erddig parkrun Results Page.

Both Annabel BULLEN  and Joseph HANCOCK became new members of the 10 run club. Congratulations guys, that is a great achievement. We also had Dan JONES and Phil ALSTEAD become new members of the 50 run club.  Again Congratulations guys, that is an amazing achievement. Hopefully you'll all receive your t-shirts super quickly.

As volunteers we love making sure parkrun happens every week. Circumstances sometimes mean we have to close but every week we thoroughly enjoy seeing you all have a great time doing the event and making friends on and off the course.  This Saturday was no exception, it was a very special day and the photos capture the amazing atmosphere created by everyone. Runners, walkers, joggers, children, young adults, adults, volunteers and last but not least, those wonderful dogs who enjoy it as much as we do.  If you feel you can help with volunteering, please get in touch.  We have great need for volunteers to fill the rota starting with next week and into the New Year.  It's great fun and you'll be shown what to do.  Contact us at erddighelpers@parkrun.com

Erddig parkrun run report: event 80 2 December 2017

Saturday's parkrun was one of the smiliest parkruns I can ever remember. It was such a great feeling and I had a great time cheering you all on. It was an amazing day with milestones earned and very happy tourists along with our usuals who turn out every week whatever the weather.  The course was well muddy (standard) so the after event catering provided by the parlour was more than welcome.

So who were our milestone heroes?

Congratulations to Dylan HERNANDEZ and Harry CAPSTICK who both became new members of the 10 club.  Well done, a fantastic achievement.

Congratulations to Angharad JETLEY and Pete CREWE who both became new members of the 50 club. Awesome effort and we are all very proud of you both :)
