Still got some summer sun….

Another shout out to the one or two members that have not completed their online disclaimers and membership forms, if you have not done a membership online then you are not up to date with your disclaimer. If you have done it you would have had an email reply confirming you have submitted, if you didn’t then you didn’t complete the form fully.

We have had a few family and visitors running with us over the last few week, great for you to join us and share the fun. To support this we will be creating a paper signature system for tourists and visitors to run at the weekly runs as a one off. Should be out in the next week or so ready for September.

On Strava we now have 127 runners, 75 ladies and 52 gents.
So far we have a total of 2792 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1507 and the men have 1285.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 25 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 72179.8kms and climbed 660795 meters, logging 8601 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 2472.7km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 28318m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1696.2km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 21291 meters for the ladies.
The longest run to date goes to Vicky Mead with a distance of 101.2km, longest male run to date is Tim Petterson with a distance of 72.
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.
Womblers are runners who pace at more than 06:30 min / K, and run less than 10km maximum on a single run, we have 3 people who fall into this group.

#PRRparkrun
On Parkrun we now have 73 runners, between us we have clocked up 1989 runs. That’s 9945kms, 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 5 runners who have completed over 100 runs, and 6 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.Matthew Ahearne and Adrian Davies let us know your plans so we can celebrate your up-coming milestones with you.
A few park run tourists last week with Jamie Vanstone and Steve Cale running Cardiff, Christina Roberts running Swansea Bay (One of my favourites), As bit further afield, Gethin Edwards and Catherine Powell running Milano Nord and to close off Stephen Paskell and Rashmi Singh running Aberdare.

#PRRontour Still lots of fabulous pictures coming in from around the globe..
