It has been what should have been a busy running week, but with all the cancelled runs we are all a bit disappointed. But in true spirit most got out there anyway and did a few miles to keeps the stats up.
On Strava we now have 141 runners, 85 ladies and 56 gents. Not all so active though, so if you are one of the 9 that have not got out there yet, now is the time to get moving. A few new names on the stats, so welcome to Lisa Evans, Danielle Roberts and Andrew Walker, new names and old ones too.
So far we have a total of 980 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 523 and the men have 457.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 37 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 22685.2kms and climbed 218553 meters, logging 2878 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 904.4km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 10509m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 622.2km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 6015 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 15 people who fall into this group.
On Parkrun we now have 55 runners, between us we have clocked up 1460 runs. That’s 7300kms, 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 supprt each other for these.
