Evening everyone, been a busy week so just some basic stats.
Although we cant forget about the amazing success of our runners who completed the London marathon this week. Well done to Chris Chambost, Trudy Perry, Darpan Singh, Angela South and we think Rebecca Broomfield did it to although I couldn’t find you on the app if you did. In that heat to finish was the best results but the times were amazing too.
ok on with the stats. We have a few returning names and one new name so welcome Sophie Owen to the stats lists.
On Strava we now have 123 runners, 71 ladies and 52 gents.
So far we have a total of 1347 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 731 and the men have 616.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 32 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 32973.2kms and climbed 312420 meters, logging 3995 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1275.1km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 14223m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 784.2km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 7531 meters for the ladies.
The longest run to date goes to Tim Petterson with a distance of 72km, longest female run to date is Jo Marshall with a distance of 71.5.
Within the club we have the womblers, at the moment these are runners who are not the fast pace racers and tend to run shorter distances, as these generally get drowned by the high rollers I am creating your own set of stats.
At the moment I have classed womblers as runners who pace at more than 06:30 min / K, and run less than 10km maximum on a single run, we have 9 people who fall into this group.
On Parkrun we now have 56 runners, between us we have clocked up 1509 runs. That’s 7545kms, pretty impressive. To be included in this stat you need to set you club as Pontyclun Road Runners.
Within Parkrun there are milestones for runners and we have a few runners with these, so far we have 4 runners who have completed over 100 runs, and 7 runners who have completed over 50 runs
If you are getting close to one of these milestones let everyone know as we all love to be there to support each other for these.
This week, we have completed 1771.8kms and climbed 17153 meters
The furthest distance goes to Shawn Murtough with 54.3km and for the ladies Trudy Perry has run 45.1km
Our mountain goat goes to Catherine Powell with 556 meters, for the men Matthew Aherne has climbed 544 meters.
Our longest single distance goes to Darpan Singh with 44.1 km, for the ladies Trudy Perry has run 43 km.
We have a few challenges running this year, a distance for every one to have as a goal at 500 km, 1000 km, 1000 miles, 1500 miles and 2500 miles. I have also given us a group challenge to complete 100,000 kms during the year.
So far 23 are on track to complete the 500 km challenge, 21 for the 1000 km, 13 for the 1000 Miles, 8 for the 1500 Miles and 1 for the ultimate 2500 Miles Challenge. You can track your name below.
