Planes, Trains and automobiles…. Well Swimming, cycling and horses!

Another amazing week in the land of PRR we had relays, races, iron men, and horses. Lots of first places and lots of new runs for people.
I must say a huge congratulations to Miguel Sutcliffe for his mamouth Iron man effort over the weekend, also huge kudos to Cath Powell, Adam Payne, Gethin Edwards and Neil Jones in challenging a beating a few of those horses. Anything else? oh yes Cottrell Park relays with two sets of medal for PRR runners in what was a pretty brutal circuit but a great experience for everyone who took part (See the photo as there were just too many to name)
 For the mixed team

 This is the most casual over the finish line shot ever 🙂

 Overall winners and for the Over 40’s!

And on with the stats….
On Strava we now have 142 runners, 85 ladies and 57 gents. This week is the second bumper week of the year with over 100 runners on the road.
So far we have a total of 2007 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1091 and the men have 916.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 26 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 47091.1kms and climbed 455325 meters, logging 5919 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1738km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 20255m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1100.7km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 12711 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 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.
#PRRontour A few tourists out there in the heat last week and once again we have enjoyed seeing the route from afar, also some of the holiday snaps too so keep them coming.

#PRRhugs another week of hugs all round with the team work and support that is heart of PRR.
