Here comes the summer sun………

Another glorious week of warm dry running, apart from the rain that came down yesterday while I was out! not complaining about that though.

On Strava we now have 142 runners, 85 ladies and 57 gents. Although after the registration window closes this will only be open to full members of the group.
So far we have a total of 2281 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1236 and the men have 1045.
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 52382.7kms and climbed 509129 meters, logging 6709 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1960.7km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 22500m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1236.7km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 14665 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 8 people who fall into this group.
#PRRparkrun
On Parkrun we now have 66 runners, between us we have clocked up 1620 runs. That’s 8100kms, 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.
