FIFTEEN THIRTY SEVEN!!!!!!!!
It has taken 78 parkruns but today saw a new fastest time at Penrhyn, a record that was made on 27/08/2016! A huge congratulations to Dan Nash on his 2nd appearance at Penrhyn on breaking the record by 10 seconds and becoming only the 3rd superhuman to beat 16 minutes on this beautiful course, especially with conditions today being a bit wet!
Event 168 had 201 participants with 31 1st timers (including 11 on their 1st parkrun) & 45 new PBs! Today’s most experienced parkrunner was Peter Morgan on his 252nd - well done! Finisher 168 for Event 168 was Emyr Edwards in 33:01 on his 51st parkrun. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part
As already mentioned, Fastest finisher was Dan Nash followed Matthew Roberts in 16:09 and Owen Roberts in 17:36, Fastest for the ladies was Abi Beath in 21:00, Llio Evans in 21:21 and Rhi Willmot in 3rd with 23:36. Fastest male junior was Sam Gunning (JM11-14) in 21:21 (must have been a photo finish with 2nd lady for time!) and Anwen Hockley was the fastest female junior in 23:48
A big thank you to the 15 volunteers this morning for helping the run to take place - please email in or message if you would like to have a go at volunteering - you get a lovely purple shirt after 25 volunteer sessions if that will sway you! Even writing the run reports counts.......
