What an end to the week…. Affilated

Well apart from all the running that has been going on, what can I say? We are officially affiliated to Welsh Athletics. This means that if you want to register (and pay the fee) you can be an official athlete, YES any of us!! #PRRAffiliated
It is truly great news and something we have been working on for a while and we finally got there. I feel a new section coming in the stats……….
Our membership continues to grow and the stats still forget sometimes who is male and female, but hey ho we are all friends on here and what is gender??
Lots of great running over the weekend and I think it is safe to say we all enjoyed the Cardiff Epic although it was a little undulating. Even Neil enjoyed it, at least that’s what he said the the camera after winning the race by about 4 minutes!
OK on with the stats.
On Strava we now have 142 runners, 85 ladies and 57 gents.
So far we have a total of 2368 running weeks, these are a week where some one has been out at least once. The ladies have 1280 and the men have 1088.
We have a few persistent runners that make it out every week of the year, so far this year there are 27 you are all listed below, this is really impressive keeping this up, lets see if it will last past the holiday season.
To date we have run 53919kms and climbed 525060 meters, logging 6961 runs between us all.
The total distance champion for the year so far is Neil Jones with a total of 1981.5km, and the mountain goat crown for the year so far is Neil Jones with 22881m climbed.
For the ladies Catherine Powell has done 1296.8km and Catherine Powell is the highest climber so far with 15567 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 8 people who fall into this group.
#PRRparkrun
On Parkrun we now have 66 runners, between us we have clocked up 1631 runs. That’s 8155kms, 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.

#PRRhugs well this goes for everyone and there will be lots at the BBQ celebration 🙂
