Another busy week in PRR land, from marathons, 10ks and of course the barrels!! Well done to everyone.
Don’t forget the vote is open for the committee so make sure if you have completed your disclaimer that you get your vote in.
On Strava we now have 134 runners, 78 ladies and 56 gents. Two new names on the stats this week, so welcome Dan Powell and Rachel Cale.
So far we have a total of 1724 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 943 and the men have 781.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 28 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 41037.4kms and climbed 386727 meters, logging 5067 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1512.8km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 16987m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 949km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 9469 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 7 people who fall into this group.
On Parkrun we now have 60 runners, between us we have clocked up 1565 runs. That’s 7825kms, 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.
