It’s hot out there…

It’s definitely getting warmer so remember to hydrate, so important cant say it enough times. But that also means that the occasional beer to cool down become part of the training plan 😉 Not going to be a long talkie bit before the stats as it’s too warm to sit in front of my PC. Great to see another 2000km week last week so people are getting out there.

On Strava we now have 142 runners, 85 ladies and 57 gents.
Welcome to a few new names for the stats Helen Gentle, Jacqui Williams, Katie Watts, Sam Clarkstone and Annie Ginwalla.

So far we have a total of 1907 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1037 and the men have 870.
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 44984.9kms and climbed 429914 meters, logging 5610 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1666.6km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 18760m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1048km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 11367 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.
#PRRparkrun
On Parkrun we now have 60 runners, between us we have clocked up 1458 runs. That’s 7290kms, 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 3 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.
With Ponty cancelled this week a few managed to get out and about, Cardiff was busy with 805 runners but Stephen Cale, Dan Powell and Jordan Griffiths were there. On the Riverfront in Newport Kerry Rockey represented us there, Chris Chambost was a Newport, Mike Donnelly in Maesteg, we had a good crowd at Porthcawl with Rhyddian John, David Sansom, Hywel Evans and Paul Griffiths all there. There was fun in Barry Island with Paul Kehl there and we hope you enjoyed the Hill (Twice), Paul Chamberlain was at Grangemoor and Gethin Edwards was further afied in Rogiet finishing in seconds place. Well done to everyone who managed to be out there this week. If you didn’t get a mention and were out there, make sure you have Pontyclun Road Runners as you club on Parkrun. If you fancy joining the rest for one of these speak to one of the many who do, someone will run with you on your first run if you need it, it’s great fun.

#PRRontour Been great to see some more of Amanda and Steve’s photos from their tour and a few other getting away from home over Wales and a little further away.
