Results Saturday 22 April 2017

Following the inaugural run on Saturday we identified a discrepancy in the recorded distance on a number of runners devices.

As a result we have re measured the course with a trundle wheel again and unfortunately we have confirmed the course was 75metres short

To protect the integrity of the results we have made the decision to amend the results from Saturday .

In effect we will add 1.5% increase in time to account for the 75 metre shortage – this is the standard methodology when accounting for discrepancies in distance.

The amendments to the results will be made in the next 24 hours .

We are really really sorry for this mistake (mortified in fact) .

Hopefully you can understand our decision to make the changes so we can ensure Merthyr parkrunners have the ability to achieve genuine PB’s in the future.

If you have any enquiries then please email us at

Thank you for your understanding

Hannah and the Merthyr parkrun team
