05 Jan Weekend Roundup 4-5 January 2020

A great action shot of Bethan Apglyn gets the Blue and Yellow 2020 off to a cracking start, courtesy of the Nos Galan Facebook page. This Mountain Ash 5k race has an amazing history, and is run every year on New Year’s Eve, with Elite, Young Athlete and Fun Run sections. There are pretty hot qualifying times for the Elite races, but 5 of our members made the cut. Bethan was first home for our women, finishing 27th in a great time of 21:06.  She was followed home by Louise Hunt (42nd/22:16) and Lisa Cleary (52nd/23:04). In the Men’s Race (won in a superb 14:15 by Kris Jones) we had Andy Pearce (77th/18:43) and David Brown (121st/19:56).  Full results can be found here, and we grabbed a couple more snaps from the night. The ‘mystery runner’ wearing Lisa’s banana bobble is none other than Welsh International Dewi Griffiths….

Louise and Lisa weren’t finished with the ‘New Year celebrations’, however, as they were up very early the next morning for a bit of Double parkrun action over in West Wales. In Lisa’s words….

“Great start to 2020 (after running fastest 5k of last year at Nos Galan) and enjoying seeing New Year in, early start for 2 hour drive to Haverfordwest parkrun, then onto Milford Waterfront then 2 hr 20 drive home 🙄  Box ticked for 2 more Welsh parkruns”.

But they weren’t the only nutters doing the double…..Mandy Barrington, Bev Warburton and Abyd Quinn Aziz completed a Grangemoor / Tredegar House (Newport) double.

Up in Scotland, Clem and Janice took on the Glasgow double of Pollok Park and Linwood….here’s Janice’s account….

“A great start to 2020, so far. Saw in the bells with 8 of our fabulous neighbours, then up in time to tackle my first ever New Year’s Day double parkrun. First to Pollok, along with 468 others and quite a few 4 legged friends. It was pretty busy! Got the hilly one out of the way, then over to Paisley for Linwood’s flatter course. Only 386 of us for that one. Really enjoyed doing back to back 5Ks – it’s only taken me 11 years!”

And the Chairman’s Challenge #20in20 to get as many P&Ders into the 20 to 21 minute zone for 5k, OR achieve a 20 sec 5k PB, got a real kickstart by Paul McGilvray up in York, where Paul completed two parkruns in 20:27 and 20:58…top work, fella!

On Saturday we had more parkrun action, with a spectacular turnout of P&Ders at Cosmeston Lakes both running and volunteering…indeed, the number of finishers was a whopping 305, true testimony to the hard work put in by Event Director Lyn Evans and his core team. And yes we know it’s not a race, but it’s quite gratifying to see how many Penarth and Dinas names are already occupying the Age Category Records list…take a bow Ian, Kevin, Brian, Malcolm, Cath and Lisa!

Brian Law joined Paul McGilvray in the #20in20 club, with an excellent 20:52, and he was nearly joined by a fast-finishing Clem “Och Aye the Noo” Clement, one place back in 21:08. Lovely to catch up with Clem and Janice who were back in Penarth for the weekend……

Now you might recall a mention in last week’s Roundup of Anthony Bannon taking part in the Castlewellan Trail Race in Northern Ireland, where Anthony hails from originally. The Chairman’s wife Bridie was born in Belfast, and when she got wind of the fact that Anthony (who also used to be her Dentist!) was home for Christmas she put in a cheeky request for the local delicacy that is Ormo potato bread. Well the boy did good, and actually handed over (halfway through his warmdown!) a pack of the wondrous bread to a startled Simon Williamson, who had just finished his marshaling stint at Cosmeston Lakes. And very nice it was too, Anthony…..
