Despite the bad weather, four intrepid Goodgymers, Lowri, Nic, Welsh Dave and Martin turned out at Trelai Park this morning to help test the route for a new Parkrun. After the initial Parkrun welcome and instructions, it was a prompt start at 9.00 a.m. with the route taking in three and a half laps around the park. Luckily, the weather stayed dry and not too windy for the time of the run, although the park fields were absolutely waterlogged, along with some of the path. So, it was wet feet time again. Great training for some trail running later this year. Some twenty-five to thirty minutes later we were all finished, and went through the process of picking up our time chips, and having these recorded.

Then it was home time. Dave said he was going home to cook breakfast, leaving the rest of us feeling hungry. All in all, a lovely run, and one to look forward to.
