Aberystwyth parkrun 383, 30th November 2019

 

It was a bright and crisp morning for Aberystwyth's 383rd parkrun, with frost on the ground and one icy patch that required a bit of care, some cones and an extra marshall... the first truly wintery parkrun of the season.

This week 102 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 1 was a first timer, and 4 were new to Aberystwyth. 19 people this morning recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

The first male finisher was Owain SCHIAVONE who was running his 50th parkrun, and the first female finisher was Eloise STRADLING. Congratulations!

This week the finish line team were joined by a new volunteer funnel manager, Max, who might need a little more training in the role.

Event 379, in the rain again!

Only 62 runners this morning, due in part to the horrendous weather forecast (which turned out not as bad as expected), the Rugby World Cup Final, and the University Harriers' charity 5k race at 10:30. Congratulations to the parkrunners who then went on to do the charity 5k! Well done to all the runners who braved the rain, and special thanks to the volunteers who were all dressed for the occasion in waterproofs.

Bright and breezy!

It's a quiet time of year for Aberystwyth, with the peak of the holiday season over, and most of the students not back yet, so it was lovely to have a visitor from High Wycombe! A lot of our regulars were racing this weekend too, with the Abersoch half marathon and the Trailfest happening on the Saturday. Best of luck to our runners heading down to race in Swansea on Sunday! For the 101 runners who ran at this, our 373rd Aberystwyth parkrun, the weather was warm and sunny but there was a strong breeze which made the going a bit tough, so well done all!
