Another week already, its been a quiet week for me but so many people out there have been very busy.
The big 1! well the big 100. We did it, 100 people recorded their runs on Strava this week.
Not quite there for the 2000km in a week but so close now. This week we did 1914km another amazing week for PRR. A record number of runners again logging on Strava, 100 runners making the effort this week with another 4 new runners.
The Cardiff half is till growing, now at 74 runners and a few more to come yet. #teamPRR
Back to the stats for this week.
I would like to welcome the new Strava runners to the fold, Kerry Roberts, Rhian Collier, Jo Beazer, Adam Thomas. We would like to welcome you all.
Our long haul runner on the road this week is Paul Binning running 74.7 km for the men and for the women Catherine Davis gets it again this week with 57.4 km.
But who are our kings and queens this week, well i did wonder how someone who has had such a good average dropped so low this week, then i remember when i saw the distance, for me Adam Payne is the King this week with his tremendous trail run on the weekend. Sorry Paul but you did get the distance and a mention. For the ladies, well I am going to break from the tradition of this being someone from the stats, after all this is about the effort that people put it to running not just the stats, so my Queen of the week is Kelly Preece, it was doing that long run on Sunday that sealed it, maybe you bit off a bit more than expected but you did it, well done.
We rattled up an amazing 1914.2 km logging doing 277 runs this week.
Our billy goat again this week was Adam Payne climbing 1451 m, well after the trail run i’m not surprised. Between us we climbed 17080 m.
Speedster of the week was Chris Medcalf 4:44 m/km, well done Chris.
For the sub 6:30s….
Great to see some of those numbers coming up for the sub 6:30s and I think a few of you may have moved into the masses.
Run forest run, well I bet Adam Payne wasn’t expecting this but you lead the sub 6:30s, closely followed by Vicky, Linda and Darpan very close behind.
