parkrun by Anest age 9 & 3/4

Croeso i report Parc rhedeg fi , gan Anest, 9 & 3/4 oed

This morning I went to parkrun and then I walked to the start line, but on the way I saw the leaves on the castle and they were red like a 50 T shirt. I looked towards the field and like usual the cows were there but they had a little company- there were sheep too . I got to top of the hill and saw a lot of visitors and they were wearing builders hats, so I went to ask why . I walked over but I was a bit shy so my mum asked if one person would come talk, so a boy with a cool yellow helmet came over and I asked 'why are you wearing builders helmets?' He said 'we are geologists and we are here to study the rocks and we felt like running today'. They were from Telford. I finally arrived at the start line (doggy start line) and my dog Nel started barking and all the dog started barking too! It was very noisy .

Finally Hayley said 'Go!' and we got to set off and run.  I saw Pauline running with her 50 balloons.  She was doing her 50th parkrun and my mum said as a joke 'happy birthday Pauline!' ( embarrassing!)  On the way round we splashed in lots of puddles and I looked at the trees and the leaves were brown, green and orange. On our second loop, in one part is was very muddy.  I had mud splashes up my legs, back and neck!  On the small loops I was going to brush my hand through the bushes but then I realised there were red berries, I thought for a second they were Rudolph noses hanging there!  In the end we went to the cafe and we saw Pauline with cakes and she let us have one.  yum.  We were on the way back to the car and mum forgot our dog and had to run back to get her!

Here's the grown up boring stuff....

Run Report Penrhyn Parkrun #144 30/09/2017

The rain was so heavy at times for Penrhyn Parkrun #144, the 154 finishers had to complete two large loops and two small loops of the castle and its new temporary moat today!

A big thank you to RD Emyr Jones and the team of volunteers for their efforts and cheers - Sally Longman as Music Marshall probably danced 5km today!

Not many visiting apricot shirts today but club vests spotted included Dulwhich runner Chris Vernon claiming this week’s joint most experienced parkrunner with Michael Finnie, both on 244 parkruns!
A total of 18 First timers made their way around the course and 22 parkrunners achieved a PB today in horrible conditions

Milestones mentions this week go to Jake Hind (JM10) who claimed the fastest Male Junior today on his tenth run and Megan Baker on her 50th! It would be remiss if me to not mention Eurwyn Edwards on his 25th volunteer session Last week and also thank you to everyone for the comments on my 100th parkrun - thanks RD Emyr for suitably embarrassing me and the centurion helmet, it may return as I believe there are two Penrhyn regulars on 99 runs!!!

This week saw Penrhyn Parkrun on BBC wales with the ‘Alfie’s Army’ programme which was filmed earlier in the summer.
A number of Penrhyn regulars will also be taking part for this weekend’s Cardiff Half marathon. The weather isn’t looking good but all the best to those who may be paddling rather than pounding the streets of Cardiff! Next Saturday also sees the Bangor 10k & half marathon take place with some parkrunners using the parkrun as a warm up beforehand and again good luck to those involved

Anyway, here are the placings:
Male placings:
An unknown runner was first.
Daragh REYNOLDS (SM20-24) of GOG Triathlon Club, was second over the line in 18:43 - has been first to finish on 2 previous occasions.
Robert FOX (SM20-24) of City of York AC, was third over the line in 19:31.
Female placings:
Jody PARKER (SW30-34) (Unattached) was first (28th overall) over the line in 22:53 - 4th time in 36 appearances.
Jenny WILLIAMSON (SW30-34) of Eryri Harriers, was second (29th overall) over the line in 23:10 - was first to finish once before.
Claire BISHOP (SW30-34) of Betsi Runaways, was third (42nd overall) over the line in 25:21.

Fastest Male Junior - Jake Hind - JM10-23.10
