#120 – 14th April 2018

Lydney parkrun
Event number 120
14th April 2018

This week 138 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 15 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.

This week was noticeably drier than recent weeks, hopefully this will continue and the boggy woods will begin to dry out. A big thank you to the parkrun fairy who added some woodchip to the very slippery bend at the start of the woods and did some other little jobs on the route.

This week we had 15 first timers, this was probably in part due to the cancellation of Newport Riverfront. As a result a couple of Lliswerry Runners came to try us out. I hope you enjoyed a bit of mud for a change. At least we could still offer them a river to run alongside. On a similar theme, we had a visitor from Lakeside Runners.

Pete Woodward took a break from his parkrun tourism this week and came to visit Lydney and chalked up another first finish, his 10th at Lydney. Pete has a serious parkrun addiction. He has run 338 times across in 154 locations. 144 in the UK, 3 in New Zealand, 2 in Poland and France and 1 in Denmark, Ireland and Italy.

Sarah Lauder was the first female finisher. She was a visitor from the cancelled Newport Riverfront.

25 people recorded personal bests. A big shout out to the entire Insall Family who all manged to improve their times. Mother and daughter Maria and Katrina Probert both had a good week. They are recent graduates of the Lydney 0-5k group. Well done to everyone else who achieved a PB this week.

I am not aware of any milestones this week.

There are some of our runners who are doing either London or Newport in the next two weeks. Good luck to all of them.

The event was made possible by 22 volunteers. Thank you to those who stepped up to volunteer, I am sure you all agree it is fun to do. Should you wish to volunteer, please keep an eye on this facebook page and add your name to the volunteer post when it comes out, or email Lydneyhelpers@parkrun.com.

#119 – 7th April 2018

Lydney parkrun
Event number 119
7th April 2018

So this week was a very quite one due to the Forest of Dean Spring half taking place. The event was rescheduled as a result of it being snowed off in March.

This week 66 people ran, jogged and walked the course, the 8th lowest attendance in 119 events. The Forest of Dean parkrun only just beat us in numbers, with 69 attendees.

Of the 66 people, 11 were first timers and 8 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different clubs took part. Visitors came from Welwyn Garden City, Isle of Wight, Haverfordwest, Haywards Heath and Austria.

Conditions this week were far better than the previous week, given the level of the River Lyd had dropped. There was less standing water around the lake, but the woods were definitely on the squelchy side.

Aron Asher made his debut at Lydney parkrun and finished in 6th place in exactly 23 minutes. Come back again Aron and see what you can do when it is a bit drier. Three other junior runners recorded personal bests, Xander MEDDINS, Dillon DE BURGH (taking an impressive 4 minutes off his previous best) and Thomas PHILLIPS. Well done to all of you.

We had one milestone this week Marysia FURLONG did her 50th run. 49 have been at Lydney and one at the Forest of Dean. Well done Marysia, I am not sure how long you will have to wait for your tshirt.

60,010km’s have been run on this course during official parkruns. How many more kilometers have been run unofficially? It is no wonder it is a little bit muddy in the woods.
Next week I anticipate numbers returning to more normal levels. If you wish to volunteer, please post on the facebook page, there are still plenty of volunteer slots available.
