Event 224 – 08/06/2019

Saturday 8 June 2019 might have been one of those mornings where people had looked out the window and chosen a lie in instead of parkrun. It was a grey rainy day, but this did not put off the 140 park runners, only a few less than normal, who came along to Penrhyn parkrun, event number 224. 23 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part. There were parkrun visitors from Cardiff, Yorkshire, Manchester and Ireland. No milestones were recorded.

A big shout out to the following 16 volunteers who made this event possible: Julia PHILLIPS • Sally LONGMAN • Simon LONGMAN • Chris WILLIAMS-BUGGY • Eden POTTER • Ed WRIGHT • Claire BISHOP • Laura MCKENZIE • Pradeep KUMARA • Megan BASTOCK • Charles DAVIS • Charlotte WILLIAMS • Anita KENDRICK • Sarah MARSH • Thomas WILLIAMS • Adanna OMAKA

By the time the run started the rain seemed to have eased off somewhat creating quite comfortable conditions for everyone who ran, jogged or walked the course. The support from the volunteers and other spectators was as fantastic as ever from start to finish. The only change from the norm today was that barcodes were scanned in the shelter of the small tearoom at the end.

Penrhyn parkrun Event number 222 25th May 2019 – Tales from the tourists

The alarm went off at 5.30am on Saturday morning, after the initial thought of ‘this is madness its earlier than when we go to work’ somehow it was so much easier to find the motivation to get out of bed for it was parkrunday and we were off on adventures. 

 Our destination of choice this week was the stunning Penryhn parkrun a two hour drive from our home run of Telford, taking in the glorious North Wales coastline on the way. 

 Arriving just before 8.30am we made our way up towards the castle, Paul was volunteering as tail walker as he has run the course before, but Penryhn was a new course to me and a tick off on the personal challenge list to run all parkrun events in North and mid Wales.

 As the runners gathered for the start it appeared that many were visiting the area for the bank holiday weekend and taking advantage of trying a new venue whilst 18 runners also arrived barcode in hand for their very first parkrun, welcome to the family. 

 Penrhyn Castle is set in stunning National Trust grounds with views out to sea and into Snowdonia. The course takes full advantage of the scenery starting with two clockwise undulating loops around the grounds. Each of the big loops is about a mile long before the last mile is broken down into two smaller clockwise loops finishing back at the castle. 

 Certainly one of the most picturesque parkruns that we have run and it is definitely on the list to revisit when hopefully we will have enough time to sample the highly recommended flapjack in the café.

 Last but by no means least a massive ‘Thank you marshall’ goes to all the volunteers without whom parkrun could not go ahead. 

This week 225 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 51 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 19 volunteers:

Ann D'ALBUQUERQUE • John D'ALBUQUERQUE • Paul MUSGROVE • Juliana BERGEL • Louise BASTOCK • Chris WILLIAMS-BUGGY • Margaret OLIVER • Jo ALEXANDER • Megan BASTOCK • Philippa ROGERS • Hefina EVANS • Rob PERRY • Huw BASTOCK • Bethan ROGERS • Alwyn OLIVER • Gareth ROGERS • Thomas WILLIAMS • Esther GAO • Adanna OMAKA

Brownies at Penrhyn and milestone celebrations! 6.4.19

First, and most importantly, thank you to all our lovely volunteers this week – you're all amazing and park run couldn’t run (excuse the pun) without you! This week, our lovely volunteers were: Tony Lister, Eurwyn Edwards, Iain Lettice, Gwion Davies, Emyr Jones, Jennifer M Charlton, Sharon Prichard, Hayley MacDonald-Jones, Joseph Charlton, Ffion Norris, Heather Jones, Megan MacDonald-Jones, Hefina Evans, Angie Laing, Clive Wycherly and Maija Giddings.

There were some special guests at Park Run this week: Nant Ffrancon Brownies came along to complete their sports badge! They’ve been working up to it all term and 14 girls ran, jogged, skipped, giggled and walked the course to get their badge. Out mascot Brownie teddy bear even came along, although his legs were a little too short to run, so the girls helped carry him. The fastest Brownie got a great time of 36 minutes, her personal best!

Along with the Brownies, there were 197 runners this week, 40 of whom were first timers – welcome to park run all of you. There were a whopping 25 personal bests this week! Keep it up folks, great job.

It was also a double celebration for Gregor and Finlay Perry, with Gregor celebrating his 50th parkrun and Finlay celebrating his 100th.  Gregor also managed to get in the top twenty finishers for the first time with a PB of 23.05, what a way to celebrate!!  Mum Shona marked the occassion with lots and lots of CAKE to share including an amazing multi-layer Salted Caramel Cake.  Megan also brought a cake which matched her brand new purple volunteer top.  Nom nom nom!!  We hope there's more milestones soon!
