Them boots are made for swimming….

It’s been a very busy week this week, so many races going on and well across the sea.

Big congratulations and #PRRhugs to everyone out there this week great to see so many and people hitting and smashing their personal targets.

On Strava we now have 138 runners, 83 ladies and 55 gents two new names this week so welcome to Darren Pengelly and Christopher Wilson. We had an amazing 95 runners recording runs last week. Not all so active though, so if you are one of the 9 that have not got out there yet, now is the time to get moving. Vaughan Gibson you are not on our stats have you re invented yourself?? join the group and i’ll add your stats.
So far we have a total of 888 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 471 and the men have 417.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 39 you are all listed below, so well done and keep it up.
To date we have run 20777.6kms and climbed 197282 meters, logging 2615 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 869.2km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 9822m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 572km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 5354 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 15 people who fall into this group.
#PRRparkrun
On Parkrun we now have 54 runners, between us we have clocked up 1443 runs. That’s 7215kms, 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 supprt each other for these.
#PRRontour loads of people out there this week our distance star this week is Sophie Taylor completing the Barcelona Marathon in a new PB time, well done Sophie #PRRhugs
