We were out on the course early this morning, we had checked the course on Friday but we were worried that if it froze overnight it could be tricky. But it was OK, a bit of frost on the exposed sections but nothing to worry about.
It was not the most exciting morning for weather, cold (2 degrees approx), overcast with a bit of breeze. And at 8.45 the rain started and kept going throughout the run! So it was very impressive that 136 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.
We had 18 volunteers there. They deserved a huge thank you for today, it was cold out there, but they kept themselves warm by clapping and cheering when they could.
We are looking forward to next weekend already. By next week in excess of 11,000 parkruns will have been completed at Wepre! That’s 55,000 Km, nearly seven time round Wales!
See you next week.
