It’s a long way to Tipperary….. but that’s not 100km

And we all thought it was going to get quieter as we start to get to the summer, then along come Cosmeston relays and Vicky’s monster 100km dash. Never seem someone so determined to get the longest run stat back!

Been a bit of a clear up tonight on Strava which will be finished next week as people finish doing their disclaimers and joining as registered runners.

Each member has to be set and and registered with Welsh Athletics once their fees are transferred and I think Vicky will be doing a bit of catching up while she rests her legs this week (See loves it really). We have over 45 names so far set up on Welsh Athletics with more being set up everyday, we did get a tweet mention as we had so many members set up in the first weekend!! We will be a strong club soon.

With a bit of reminding we have 142 runners registered with the disclaimer and a few more regulars still to complete their forms, remember that we will not be able to let you run with the groups unless you have completed the disclaimer, it’s free, online and easy to do so come on. Of the 141, 85 have said that they wish to be registered with Welsh Athletics and that’s amazing.  Remember to be a full member you need to attend our planned runs throughout the year.

The affiliation BBQ is this weekend, so last shout out for the tickets, adults just a fiver each and kids under 12 are free!! We would love to see all those that watch the page join in too or at least support it by buying a raffle ticket, some great prizes on there. (I’ll be back to promoting the Christmas doo after weekend so be ready:))

On with the stats….

On Strava we now have 142 runners, 85 ladies and 57 gents.
So far we have a total of 2453 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1323 and the men have 1130.
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 55723.8kms and climbed 544888 meters, logging 7236 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 2066.8km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 24044m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1349.3km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 16231 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 66 runners, between us we have clocked up 1631 runs. That’s 8155kms, 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.
