As the summer continues it great to see the holiday snaps and the flag of PRR out there, I did bring back the sun for this weekend after the rain I hear you all had (I needed that where I was!!). Big hugs to all those who completed the Barry 10k and comment if you beat Iwan!! (Or got a new 10k pb, well done Tara Phillips)
On Strava we now have 145 runners, 83 ladies and 62 gents.
So far we have a total of 2729 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1465 and the men have 1264.
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 67218.4kms and climbed 613500 meters, logging 8184 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 2235km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 25901m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1524.1km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 18761 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.
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 7 people who fall into this group.
On Parkrun we now have 70 runners, between us we have clocked up 1772 runs. That’s 8860kms, 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 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.
With Ponty not running last week here is a little summary of where we all went…. Steve Cale visited Cardiff, Paul Griffiths was in Ashton Court, David Sansom was over in Billericay, Kerry Rockey went over to Bryn Bach for their 300th event, Paul Hehl, Mike Donnelly and Jonathan Mead went to Porthcawl, Matthew Ahearn and Dan Powell visited Penallta, Cheis Chambost and Sarah Passmore went down to Grangemoor. All in all lots of out and about.
#PRRontour The tours continue with lots of photos coming in of the holiday runs, please remember that if you are somewhere even hotter than here that you take plenty of water with you. Credit to Catherine Davies for the cover photo.
This week, we have completed 2218.9kms and climbed 22980 meters
The furthest distance goes to Paul Kehl with 60.1km and for the ladies Catherine Powell has run 52.8km
Our mountain goat goes to Catherine Powell with 842 meters, for the men Mark Hester has climbed 809 meters.

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 2000 miles. I have also given us a group challenge to complete 100,000 kms during the year.

I’ve added a new feature this week called living on the edge, you’ll get that next to you name if you have to run in the next week to stay on your current list 🙂
We are on track to complete the 100,000km challenge with 67,218km completed with the target of 59,615km so far this year.
