Birthday celebrations with love in the air and future plans

Valentines day and love was in the air along Porthcawl seafront , a fine dry sunny day with dry light wind welcomed the 191 runners preparing for the start of our 98th parkrun . All the runners and volunteers joined in wishing Happy birthday to Pauline Sheldrick , one of our regular runners who always tries her hardest and runs with a smile , she has volunteered on several occasions when she was q unable to run . This was a special birthday for Pauline and her family were here , either running or cheering her on , hope you had a great day Pauline . It was also Joanne Hegarty birthday and she ran with a large group of friends and family before a birthday breakfast celebration. These are the things that make parkrun so much fun for us all , runners and volunteers .
Matt Wells led the field home in a time of 17:11 , while Neath Harriers Lucy Harland was first female in 19:31 on her first visit to Porthcawl.
We have our 100th run in 2 weeks time on 28th Feb and are hoping our top 10 attendees and volunteers over the last 2 years will be at the start for a special celebration photo shoot . Since it's the day before St David's Day ,it will be Welsh themed run or run in Red for Wales .
As usual many thanks to all our willing volunteers who make our regular tuns possible and all the runners who make it all worthwhile. Keep running and enjoy yourselves , come back soon
