Am in tentative discussions regards arranging one. Am thinking out and back from Discovery centre towards Burry Port.

I know there are a good number of keen runners in the area so let me know if you would be interested in an undulating 5k followed by a slice of cake and a cup of tea on Saturday mornings here in Sunny Llanelli....

I would be more than willing to volunteer. We have the perfect facilities and I live 300m from the Discovery Centre

There is also the option of starting from the Leisure Centre and following the route used by the HBA Fusion 5k Summer Series?

Either way count me in.

I'd be up for it occasionally although I usually have childcare issues early Sat mornings. Would prefer a flat 5k though. How about start over that footbridge just east of the millennium center running east and back. That way people would get a flatter run which I think may be more popular, although I would enjoy both.

I'm game!

If running towards Burry Port the only undulations are the humps over the railway bridge?

Sounds good to me

I'm only coming if the serve coffee cake.

I didn't think had had any replies to this as hadn't recieved any emails.

 Happy now.

 I still like the start and finish at discovery centre idea, not that undulating apart from railway bridge as Kev said. Would be willing to compromise though...

I think this is a brilliant prospect regardless of where it is. The whole point of these Park runs is to have a regular meeting point and a way of measuring self performance, so if it includes a bump, a least it will be a regular "bump" over which we can self -asess.

Well done for thinking of it.

Very kind words thankyou Fran.

Just need to hear back from Parkrun HQ now and will hopefully get ball rolling

Hi Mattoo

Yep - I'd be interested in this. Ran some of the HBA series there this year and live locally. Count me in!

Am in process of filling in preliminary paperwork, is a team of volunteers to help with getting projuect of the ground initially I need. Have the possibility being raised in 3Ms running club tomorrow night but is there anyone out there willing to help me out or a member of Sospan,  Swansea Harriers etc who could get the idea out there and canvas for helpers and ultimately runners?

No good as an organiser - spend every available weekend away (daughter in Kent and will be having second baby in April), BUT will definitely participate every available weekend home.

Well I look forward to meeting you I hope

Hi Mattoo

I organise the Cardiff parkrun, so if I can help let me know. If you want the course measured I can do that for you.

Thanks Croups, am going to do necessary initial paperwork this week as have some spare time, will defo use your knowledge  soon tho I hope

Mattoo - whilst not a member of a club I would be able to volunteer very regularly - say every other Saturday although I'd like the odd run as well

Good luck - fingers crossed

Kind offer Croups.

I've thought for a while that Llanelli waterfront would be a good place for a Parkrun. Stuck out north of Ammanford, Cardiff Parkrun is a bit of a trek for me and whilst I wouldn't be able to do it every week, I would hope to support a Llanelli parkrun a lot more regularly.

Hope you are able to make this happen Mattoo

All very positive, cheers people. I hope so too
