Wepre parkrun #77 28th October 2017

We are delighted to report that we have now been able to purchase an AED for Wepre Park, and Wepre. It was made possible by generous donations from our regular parkrunners, Deeside Athletic Club and public donations through Tesco in Mold.

This lifesaving piece of equipment is kept in the visitor centre. We hope that we, nor any other user of the park,  will never need it , but it is comforting to know it there, it is portable and could be delivered to any part of the course within minutes. Thank you everyone who has made this possible.

On a lovely autumn morning we enjoyed an excellent turnout of 171 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 22 volunteers:

 

Nicola KAY • Andrew BARNARD • Robert DAVIES • Rob MACKEY • Ann BROUGHTON • Becks BROWN • Mia BROUGHTON • Joanne WHITEHEAD • Claire KITCHEN • Trudi PARRY • Lucy INGHAM • Milo BROUGHTON • Gavin BROUGHTON • Maria PIERCY • Karl FORMSTONE • Zak HYNES • Keith THOMAS • Scott FORMSTONE • Jen BOWDEN • Teigan SEPHTON • Danny CHAMBERS • Nathan LOW

Wepre parkrun # 66 12th August 2017

A bit quieter this week with only 107 but there are lots of people on holiday I guess. But an important week as we saw several milestones.

  • Katy Baugh was first lady to finish, in her 50th parkrun!
  • Billy Copp, one of our real stalwarts ran his 50th parkrun too.
  • And we celebrated our 2000th individual finisher; Lucy Coughlan running her 4th parkrun and her 1st at Wepre took the honour!

Hope to see big turn-out next week for the Sport UK Special Event. We have not one but two local athletes who will be tail-walking as part of the national event. We look forward to welcoming Luke Jones and his sister Jade to Wepre parkrun! It’s going to be a fantastic event! Don’t miss out! We will need lots of volunteers too, if you fancy helping out at this big event please contact us via the website or Facebook.

Event #65 05/08/17 – It’s all about the PB’s!

This week 130 people ran, jogged and walked Wepre parkrun including 30 first timers but more about them next week!

36 people recorded Personal Bests, bringing the total number of PB’s since we started Wepre parkrun in May 2016 to 2001! The 2000th PB went to Melissa Romero-Edwards.

I love seeing people get PB’s! Whoever you are, regardless of whether you are first finisher or keeping the tail-walker company, a PB shows you are trying, and getting better! And it should never be under-valued and it’s lovely to see how everyone cheers the PBs. Congratulations to everyone who has contributed to that total by putting in the effort and joining in the fun that is Wepre parkrun.

As usual we had fantastic support from 18 volunteers, some regulars and some new faces. Thank you all, there is no parkrun without you.

Interesting running today with three men having a great battle for the first three finishes.

Jez Brown and Phil Pumford, both of Buckley RC recording an identical time of 18.27, with Jez just inches ahead in a sprint finish. Julian Ayres of Trismart was third in 19:37. Jez was one of the first course record holders setting a time of 18.27 in Event #3.

The first three ladies finished very close too!

Marith VAN DEN WITTENBOER was first in 26:42 with Julie BRACE immediately behind her in 26:48. Ali GREGORY was third in 27:06. Marith and Julie both got PB’s, and Ali is a first-timer.

It is great to see the walkers there too, gradually getting quicker, with many of them now running much of the course.

Well done all you.

Rob (Event Director)
