Bodelwyddan #14

What a beautiful day it was at Bodelwyddan this weekend, another great turn out and welcome to some new volunteers we appreciate your help and not forgetting our regulars too.

It really is amazing to see how people progress over the weeks, special mention to the individuals from a local GP surgery who are achieving new pb's and are so supportive, if you would like help with a staff running group during the week let Eva know. Also well done to the many first timers to parkrun, welcome - we hope you'll continue your journey.

The new finish and diversion will stay in place until after Xmas.

3 – That’s the magic number

It was Bodelwyddan parkrun #13 on 17th November, what could go wrong? Well actually only a small hiccup but it one of three things that stood out this weekend.

1) Many thanks to our trainee Run Directors Sarah and David who helped to set out the course, it was a good thing they were there as went doing our course check and set up we found that the back boundary wall was down and a large area fenced off. After some discussion and checking of alternative routes we had to divert back along the path instead of going through gate 2, many apologies that the course would have been a little short and this will be remeasured before Saturday to ensure we have an alternative route.

2) There was a fantastic atmosphere this weekend and so many people staying to encourage everyone through to the end, great to see so many people from Denbigh Harriers, Abergele Harriers and Chorlton Runners amongst many clubs. We also had visitors from afar a field as Cornwall!

3) We popped up to the cafe after the run so Sarah and David could upload the results and ensure the volunteers got their thank you email, we were a bit stunned and really appreciate the very kind gesture that some of our parkrunners had paid for our drinks. Thank you so much it made our day!

Finding our feet!

It's amazing that we've already done 3 events after what seemed like a lifetime waiting for everything to be ready, huge thanks firstly to everyone who has helped with the organisation of the event including staff from Bodelwyddan Castle, our parkrun ambassador Rob, Prestatyn Running Club, all the people that donated money so we could buy a defib, Rhyl Runners and of course all the volunteers that give up their time so the event can go ahead.

The first 3 events have been fantastic, as I walk the route early in the morning setting out the signs (with my family helping) it's great to look over the North Wales coast and spot the deer in the woods.

We are very lucky to be able to use the grounds but please can everyone share that no dogs are allowed on the course as this is Castle and Hotel requirements and also to protect the livestock and animals on the course. I don't like turning people away, but I will to ensure the event can keep running, thanks for your understanding.

It was pointed out to me yesterday that the first finishers from the 3 events are a stats dream, 17:17 for event 1, 19:19 for event 2 and 18:18 for event 3!

Thanks everyone for running, perfect preparation for Cross Country!
