What a difference a week makes - warm, sunny, no bad jokes!

Well done to all our runners, and walkers this week, and a big thank you to all our volunteers.

Be aware that next weekend is Ras y Gader (Cader Idris Mountain Race) so it may well be busier in town, and access to the main square and up the Cader Road will be restricted.

Run report number 167

After last week, it had to be a bit warmer, and it was. Though it was bitterly cold with a dusting of snow on the summits.

Fortunately we have now got some heavy duty cones that are more wind resistant - and mounted with a Welsh Flag - made very kindly by one of our volunteers, thanks Kev!!

A fabulous turn out of runners, who all did very well, whether they ran, jogged or walked the course - there were some mighty quick juniors on the course, seeming to pace their parents to PB's!! Thank you to Alex and Mark for wearing new and old Apricot's T's respectively - very useful to be able to compare them side by side, or in TH Roberts, back to back!!

Thank you to all our volunteers, and a huge congratulations to Christine, one of our stalwarts right from the beginning in Dolgellau for completing her 100th run volunteering!

Next week must be warmer, mustn't it?

Run Report Number 166

Last week we appeared in dispatches (here) with a record attendance. This week we may sneek in again with the 91% reduction in attendance.

It was a little blustery in places, and maybe a little damp. One runner mentioned they were off home for their winter breakfast of porridge and coffee in front of the fire. I wonder if they could see the snow falling on Cader Idris from there!

To be fair, even the marshals were trying to hide (thanks Elly for the picture). That didn't stop 15 hardy runners from completing the course - well done, the consensus from our volunteers is that it was the coldest one of the year so far.

Every week we are very grateful to our volunteers, and this week was an exceptional effort from everyone. Diolch yn fawr iawn!

Fingers crossed for better weather this coming week, especially as one of our volunteers will be celebrating their 100th volunteering session! Hope to see you all again soon, in slightly warmer, drier conditions.

Easter DPR 1

Who could imagine that our little parkrun in Dolgellau could beat it's own PB by 52? Today we welcomed 174 participants to 2 glorious sunbaked laps on the Dolgellau parkrun route. This is our biggest number ever, beating our previous record of 122 at the Easter Saturday parkrun in 2017.

Although there was a bit of a squeeze at the start, it all went remarkably smoothly, which is in no doubt all down to our amazing group of volunteers who came out to help. We hope those who participated had a wonderful run and to those who helped, a huge thank you for your time, enthusiasm and calmness in the face of an unusually large crowd. Our heroes in hi-vis are amazing!

Easter DPR 2

Wishing you all a fantastic Easter and Bank Holiday weekend.
