We seem to be getting a very busy time and the races are starting to pile up and that’s always difficult to keep up with everything going on. But there is always those that stick out when they happen, so big up and much respect to Neil Jones on an amazing marathon time which most, well all, of us can only dream about.
Taken a little longer than I planned tonight following the cull, we have also lost all the Zero runners from the stats this week. So here we go.
Well two new names amongst the ones that have disappeared, Kathryn Rodgers and Sarah Palmer welcome to the stats list.
On Strava we now have 119 runners, 69 ladies and 50 gents.
So far we have a total of 1215 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 664 and the men have 551.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 34 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 30546.9kms and climbed 289350 meters, logging 3615 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1239.8km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 13743m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 742.2km and Kay Lawless is the highest climber so far with 7045 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.
On Parkrun we now have 56 runners, between us we have clocked up 1487 runs. That’s 7435kms, 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 support each other for these.
This week, we have completed 1623.6kms and climbed 14574 meters
The furthest distance goes to Neil Jones with 66km and for the ladies Catherine Davis has run 45.1km
Our mountain goat goes to Darren Pengelly with 1093 meters, for the ladies Kate Perna has climbed 745 meters.
Our longest single distance goes to Neil Jones with 41.9 km, for the ladies Sarah Passmore has run 21.5 km.
We have a few challenges running this year, a distance for every one to have as a goal at 500 km, 1000 km, 1000 miles, 1500 miles and 2500 miles. I have also given us a group challenge to complete 100,000 kms during the year.
So far 21 are on track to complete the 500 km challenge, 21 for the 1000 km, 13 for the 1000 Miles, 7 for the 1500 Miles and 1 for the ultimate 2500 Miles Challenge. You can track your name below.
We are on track to complete the 100,000km challenge with 29,831km completed with the target of 28,846km so far this year.
This week the womblers furthest distance goes to Natalie Kendrick-Doyle with 15.1km and our wombling mountain goat is Natalie Kendrick-Doyle with 69 meters. The longest single distance goes to Matthew Wilmington with 5.1 km.
