Event 211….. A Lovely Sunny Morning!

Event No. 211, 28th May 2022

It was a beautiful sunny morning as we parked up at Erddig House and made our way through the maze of cobbled courtyards to the start/finish area in front of the impressive house with a superb view of the rolling Welsh countryside stretching out in front. We were met by RD Lynn and the setup team and made to feel very welcome. Wife Lesley was doing Finish Token Support while I was Tailwalker along with Erddig regular Billy Brown.
After a clear and concise First Timers Welcome then RD’s briefing from Lynn, we were off. This is a brilliant course, wending its way through a woodlands loop before dropping down a steepish hill to a lovely river valley for a bigger “frying pan” loop. This of course meant coming back up the hill - which was obviously steeper on the way back!! - to finish in front of the house. Being Tailwalker meant I could relax, chat and enjoy the scenery on the way round, supported all the way by an enthusiastic team of marshals.
This week 190 people ran, jogged or walked the course. There were 61 first time visitors to Erddig, of whom 6 were doing their first ever parkrun. These came from all over the UK and even from Australia and the USA! Representatives of 23 different clubs took part, with the largest contingent (15) from Victoria Park RC, Warrington. There were 21 pb’s set, including by the First Finisher Paul Jones in 16.56. First Lady Finisher was Laura Sears in 21.00. Milestones were achieved by 3 runners, Chris Purviss with 25 parkruns, Nick Paxton with 50 parkruns and Sam Darby with 100 parkruns. Well done all.
Obviously, without volunteers there would be no parkrun and today’s hi-viz heroes making it happen were: Amanda Bailey, Billy Brown, David Brown, Nigel Cliff, Sharon Crowley, Alexandra Edwards, Alison Edwards, Lucy Edwards, Michael Edwards, Dylan Ellis-Jones, Sion Ellis-Jones, David Hall, Henry Jones, Fleur Leslie, Judah Leslie, Rachel Nickerson, Rosie Nickerson, Ellen Parzer, Lynn Shearer, Deborah Short, Bill Smith, Lesley Smith, John Tipping, Joan Walker, Philip Walker, Barbara Ward, Carol Wild, Neil Wild.
 I would definitely recommend this as a “must do” parkrun. Very friendly and well-organised, great location and a terrific course. We’ll be back!!

 

Thanks to Bill Smith from Blackpool or this weeks report :)

Erddig 6th Birthday Parkrun Celebration

The day dawned bright and dry to celebrate the 6th birthday of the start of Erddig Parkrun – 14th May 2016 – for me that was my first ever parkrun and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to run again on the same date!

Although there weren’t quite as many as back in 2016, there was still a good crowd including several tourists including some who came to get their ‘E’ in the alphabet challenge.  Also need to mention the hen party – here to celebrate with Jenny (or is it Jennie?) who was celebrating her upcoming wedding – all 11 were wearing a variety of outfits – including bike helmets or devils horns as she had met her future husband at the Tour de France which has the tradition of ‘El Diablo’ chasing some of the riders during the race.  The extra layers certainly didn’t slow Jenny and some of the others down at all – hope you all enjoyed your special run at this special occasion too.

As normal, a big shout out to all the volunteers – a clear run briefing from Jacqui and then our countdown starter was Alex, who was also part of the core team back in 2016 and did a great job of also timing today too!  The first mile into the words was definitely less muddy than usual, although I did manage to find the odd patch! All around the course there were many smiling volunteers cheering us on our way, encouraging us as we ran and walked our way round – was great to see one family who started with their daughter in the buggy but then were walking together at her pace as she also walked part of the way back – that’s all a part of being in the parkrun family – everyone doing parkrun their way.

At the end, it being a birthday, there just had to be cake and cookies – a good variety for us all to choose from – thanks to everyone who brought them along – greatly appreciated by us all.

This week saw 28 PB’s, including first over the line, Jack Pickett, as well as 33 first timers – hope you all enjoyed it – see you soon either here or at another parkrun – keep up the running!

Special mention to Carl Topham who was either 50 or his 50th Parkrun.
Thank you to Libby Cole for the cookies, thank you to Liz Price Jones for the coffee cake. Thank you to Fiona Boyce for the run report.

 

Cancellation 16/04/2022

We have had to cancel this weeks parkrun as the National Trust are expecting Erddig to be busy over the weekend. This could create a problem with parking.
