Weekend Round Up 2nd/3rd Dec

A 'not-so brief' recap from the weekend.

The holidays are coming!  

December started with a handful of runners at a range of parkruns. Kev and Ceri ran at Llanishen Park, Andy & Craig took the short trip to Tremorfa, Meg & Joey ran at Trelai, whereas Ian B, Rob L and Phil B went to Cardiff parkrun along with Harry W & Lucy who used it as a warm up for the Cross Country after lunch.

Aislin & Jack also decided on a pre race parkrun and took on the Somerdale Pavilion course - known to parkrun fans as the Curly Wurly. Dan continued his alphabet challenge with a “U” at University Parks parkrun in Oxford & then travelled back to Bristol to race.

Mark went to Evesham for the first time and finished second, as Rob B ran at New Earswick, York, in one of a reduced number of northern parkruns owing to snowy conditions. Rob is the first club member to do that parkrun. Alec & Helen couldn’t run so had a snowy walk instead whilst Karen was at Quakers Walk in Devizes.

Morwenna enjoyed another warm one at Kawana  to make it her 10th run there.

The third Gwent League fixture of the year took place in Blaise Castle and a balmy 1°c and fog greeted the runners on Saturday afternoon. Despite this, conditions were better than last year which was like running in a wind tunnel.

Susannah, Emily, Aislin, Lucy, Armanda & Hannah ran in the ladies race. The men’s race saw Harry W, Harry T, Matt T, Dan L, Hwyel, Phil R & Jack competing.

The next race will be in February in Margam Park.

Over on the continent, the weather conditions in Valencia were great for Delyth who was out there seeing if she could beat her PB again this year. A cool start made for almost ideal temperatures.

Although she might not have made the BBC footage, Del ran an incredible 3:11:18 to make it three marathon PBs in a year and to also put her in contention for a Welsh Masters marathon place.

Next weekend sees the San Dom Christmas party and Pudding Plod!!
