Aberystwyth parkrun is cancelled on 2021-05-22 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Student Takeover Week

A sunny morning with blue skies greeted our parkrunners and student volunteers - the calm before Storm Ciara! It was great to see so many runners, 154 being the 3rd highest attendance, and the highest attendance of a non-Bank Holiday weekend! Thanks to the students for coping with the numbers and doing a great job.

Chilly and windy but a great turnout!

Well done to everyone who took part on this blustery morning. Away from the wind it wasn't that cold, and the first signs of Spring were in evidence with snowdrops and crocuses in the park. Despite the wind, 20 people somehow managed to get PBs! It was lovely to see a few new faces, and we all hope that the visitor who slipped and fell on one of the corners is OK (her family were spectating so she had people to look after her, and luckily Nurse Eli was running right behind her - thanks Eli!). Congratulations to Heather who celebrated her 50th parkrun.

Also, Anita Worthing volunteered for her 300th time (wow!). Given that Aberystwyth parkrun has been running since 2012, this means she averages about 37.5 volunteers a year. It's official she holds the age graded course record for running, but it's also pretty clear to us she holds the record for most frequent volunteer. Thanks!

The first Saturday of the decade!

Perfect conditions greeted a good crowd of parkrunners keen to get the new year off to a good start with some cool fresh air and a bit of exercise. We had runners, joggers, walkers, buggies, dogs, new faces, and many familiar faces. The newest face was baby Dorothea in her buggy - watching from the sidelines for now with mum Lina, but it won't be long before they join the runners again!
