Run Report #8 13-04-19 and #9 20-04-19

As a family of regular parkrunners who make the long journey from the New Forest in Hampshire to Abersoch several times a year to visit Grandma and Poppa, we were very excited to see Hafan Pwllheli join the parkrun family this spring, and judging by the significant number of visitors from far and wide we were not alone. Hafan Pwllheli did not disappoint and we were treated to two very different experiences in a fabulous setting!


Run #8 welcomed 66 (a new attendance record) runners, joggers and walkers on a bright morning but with a chilly wind coming off the sea. It was low tide so there was plenty of hard sand and some shingle, although sadly the previous tide had washed up a significant number of barrel jelly fish so these were a slightly unusual obstacle for those of us not used to running their parkrun on the beach.  Thankfully there was some respite from the cold headwind after the turnaround point and conditions on the wide hard sand were pretty good for breaking records.


First home was junior Freddie Roden in a time of 19.58 setting both a new course record and the record for the highest age grade (72.62%). First lady home was Helen Roden in a time of 24.27 – I assume they are related, what a talented family!  There were 48 first timers of which 4 were doing their first ever parkrun, and 6 recorded new PBs. There were a whopping 11 age category records set – Freddie Roden JM11-14, Imogen Wharton JW11-14, Ross Williams SM20-24, Georgina Morris SW20-24, Aiden O Donnell VM35-39, James Adney VM40-44, Steven Walker VM 50-54, Tony Taylor VM55-59, Helen Roden VW45-49, Wendi Evans VW55-59, and Margaret Fitzgerald VW 80-84.


Run #9 - what a difference a week makes, high tide, the highest one of the month, meant that there was just a small strip of soft sand at the top of the beach for everyone to squeeze into. On what promised to be one of the hottest Easter Saturday’s on record 135 parkrunners, more than double the previous week’s record, braved the energy sapping soft sand in the glorious sunshine. First home was Shaun Ashworth in 21.39 and first lady junior Milly Lever in 26.39.


Neil Sumner joined the 100 Club and juniors William Bradley and Henry Whitehill joined the 10 Club. Of the 100 first timers, 6 completed their first ever parkrun and there were 3 well deserved PBs. Another 5 new age category records were set – Theo Burfield JM15-17, Milly Lever JW15-17, Jenny Ellis Logan SW30-34, Janet Bywater VW50-54 and Heather Thisleton VW65-69.


A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped out both weeks, without their generous support parkrun would not be possible. If you are local or if you are supporting family and friends please consider volunteering in the future.


Whilst this course is not particularly suited to the PB hunter and is very variable depending on the state of the tide and the weather conditions, you can’t beat the views across the bay and you will be warmly welcomed at the sailing club for tea, cake or cooked breakfast afterwards.


What a lovely end to our holiday in Pen Llyn, sitting on the terrace in the sunshine and eating ‘cake by the ocean’

See you again in August.

Jo Murphy
