Fun and games and of course BBQs

Another great week in the land of PRR finalised with a fantastic get together and BBQ. It was great to see everyone there and we hope you all enjoyed. Many thanks to everyone who helped get organised and thanks for everyone who bought raffle tickets and came to the evening.
We have a few new names on the stats this week, so welcome to Lee Parpworth, Mark Passmore, Kate Jones.
On Strava we now have 141 runners, 83 ladies and 58 gents.
So far we have a total of 2539 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1369 and the men have 1170.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 27 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 57677.6kms and climbed 566927 meters, logging 7553 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 2085.6km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 24297m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1405.8km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 16902 meters for the ladies.
The longest run to date goes to Vicky Mead with a distance of 101.2km, longest male run to date is Tim Petterson with a distance of 72.
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 8 people who fall into this group.
#PRRparkrun
On Parkrun we now have 69 runners, between us we have clocked up 1759 runs. That’s 8795kms, 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 6 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.

#PRRontour
