Event number 204 was The last Penrhyn parkrun of 2018 & had 212 participants making their way around the two big loops and two small loops of the castle grounds.
Event director Gwion was in charge today and a massive thank you to him and all the volunteers for making today possible. As you may be aware, there are a few new volunteer positions available in which can all help to get your purple Milestone volunteers shirt and can also mean you still get to run as well!
There were 53 first timers to Penrhyn this mornng including 11 1st time parkrunners. I noticed a few green 250 shirts as well as a rare blue 500 shirt which makes Simon Greenhill this week’s most experienced parkrunner with 565 (the equivalent of every Saturday for 11 years!!!!) Finisher 204 for Event 204 was Suzanne Villiers in 39.23
Fastest finishers today were Junior 15-17 Raif Serif in 17:35 (new pb), Jonathan Tyler in 17.59 (and a new pb and John Davies in 18:41. Fastest for the ladies were Sarah Pickering in 20:49, Tammy Lewis Jones in 21:48 and Helen Morgan in 23:51. Overall, 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.
There is no New Year Parkrun at Penrhyn but the hardcore amongst you can get your fix and do the double at Nant Y Pandy and Newborough Forest on New Year's Day!
