Current course details and restrictions

Following some recent queries just to confirm we will be running on the revised course we have been using since December until the sea defence work is completed . This is likely to be until December 2018.
While using this course we cannot allow runners with buggies due to the nature of the course around Rest Bay Lifeguard station where it is unsafe with the number of runners who currently take part. This is regrettable but is in the interest of safety for all taking part. Also runners with dogs are not allowed to take part in Porthcawl parkrun.
The extra loop at Rest Bay does require extra work from our volunteer team to set up and marshal to ensure a safe run and we would appeal to anyone who is able to help any week in any capacity to contact us on porthcawlhelpers@parkrun.com.
You may be surprised how much fun it can be ! #volunteers #loveparkrun.
The current start and finish opposite the Pavilion does provide a great area for us all to get together.
We thank all runners and volunteers for their support and cooperation and hope we can all continue to enjoy our weekly meetings in the spirit we have built up over the last 5 years
