Event #3….Hot, hot, hot!!

A blistering start to the morning saw more than 53 runners line-up on the start line for event number 3.  15 of these runners were doing the junior parkrun for their first time.  The hot weather saw a good few runners decide to just run one lap, but 11 ran new Personal Bests....well done!

Also, we had our first female first finisher, who was Bethan Palmer in a time of 9.08, and second was Rory Gravell, in 9.23.  Well done both of you!!

Thank you to all the volunteers and parents who give up their sunday lie-ins to bring the kids to the park to run!  You're what makes these events happen!

A fantastic first event!

The rain stopped this morning for long enough to set up in Carmarthen Park and welcome 65 eager runners to the start line!  A briefing and warm-up session was enjoyed by all before they gathered on the line.  A good turn out of the local junior athletes, Carmarthen Harriers, saw a strong lead taken early by 3 boys, who held their positions until the Finish line, with Frank Morgan first over the line.  The girls run was a close call with Daisy Thompson first over the line just one second ahead of the next girl!

A fantastic atmosphere wasn't dampened by the light rain that came in time to cool the runners down.  An overwhelming sense of community filled the park, and a huge thankyou goes out to every runner who took place and every marshall and volunteer who helped make this inaugural event a huge success.  Da Iawn!!
