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!

Aberystwyth parkrun Event number 371 7th September 2019

This week's parkrun report is written by Paul and Rachel, visiting parkrunners from Scunthorpe. Paul and Rachel are regular visitors to our parkrun, and it was lovely to see them again and to accept their offer to write our report. Looking forward to seeing you both again in December.

This week’s Aberystwyth parkrun was the events 7th Anniversary!!!  The FIRST Aberystwyth  parkrun took place on 1st September 2012 with 41 runners & 8 volunteers. Were you at that 1st event and here today?

By my records then Helen WILLIAMS, Meinir MORGAN-THOMAS, Helen Sarah STRETCH, Dan FIELD, Kate WRIGHT & Edward LAND were at both events. There was a shout out at the start to others including a thank-you to Event Director Anita WORTHING. If I have missed anyone please don’t be cross!

There were scrummy cakes at the finish which were enjoyed by runners & volunteers alike.

This weeks parkrun was made possible by the efforts of the Hi-viz heroes:-

Thank you - Angela SELF • Brian GARROD • Daniel THOROGOOD • Elizabeth KENSLER • Helen Sarah STRETCH • James CRASKE • Jane THOROGOOD • Louise AMERY • Megan WILLIAMS • Mel HOPKINS • Moss INNS • Nicky HERRIOT • Paul RHODES • Phillip LOWTHER • Sue LEWIS • Susan EVANS

Remember – YOU can also volunteer to make this event happen in future weeks. PLEASE follow the link on the home page & make a difference.

Parkrun day or Saturday as normal folk call it dawned to reveal dry, bright and breezy conditions and a managable temperature for running. It was a nice change for the two of us to be able to walk across from Llanbadarn. Whilst we are not new to Aber parkrun it is always great to be back at what has to be one of the friendliest runs we have done. Even if we have driven over 220 miles to be with family this weekend it counts for the carbon footprint if we can walk to a parkrun???

 

THIS week 124 runners, joggers, walkers, completed the out and back plus 3 laps of Plascrug.

 

There were 16 first timers to the course, including 2 who chose this as their first ever parkrun. Welcome to parkrun -  Megan RODGERS and Tom MORRISSEY. Hope it is one you will remember. Don’t expect cake every week!!!

Visitors today included people from Bangor, Leamington Spa, Scunthorpe & Wycombe Forest amongst others. We hope you all enjoyed it and come back soon.

 

An incredible 21 of you recorded new Personal Bests. Congratulations one & all.
