Plenty of potential in Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay, I'd have thought?

Signed up for a park run in Delamere and will use an app I found on the Google Play android app site called fastTxtPro.  It has a number of features but the one I like is "whenwillifinish".  Used it in a race the other weekend and it txt's (optional) your time quarter, half and three-quarter distance to whoever you choose and also gives them an idea when you will finish.  Great for friends and family who aren't running because it frees them up and gives them an idea when you will get in.  Distances show in miles and KM.  Worked OK in that race and I was in 1 minutes before it predicted.   Its free as well so that is good.

Do people really need to know how you are doing at a parkrun. 

I agree it's great when friends are trying to follow you doing. Marathon, but parkrun ? 

And where are they going to go ? The start and finish at Delamere is miles from nowhere ? And you're only going to be gone 25 minutes

The point was I used it see how it performed.  I would use it on half marathons but as I just downloaded it I thought I'd try it out.  Not a crime I assume.

Just mentioned it incase someone thought it was useful.  If not then my apologies and please ignore my comments.

It was just a comment that IMHO it was over kill for a parkrun, and the phone signal is rubbish there as well

Fair comment.  Agreed.  I know when I did the Chester half it would have been useful and probably good for other travelling as well.

We used the organisers provided app at the Paris marathon this year, and it was great for our kids to know where we were as they dived around spectating..

bit slippy in Delamere this morning, and wet under some of the big trees

Excellent.  Helps that they know what you are up to.  Was going to run Delamere today but had other things to do.  Looking forward to giving it a go again soon.

Did you get a decent time ?

Better than last week, but a couple of minutes off my pb 

See you next week !

There are two Parkruns under development for North West Wales at the moment, one using part of the Deganwy Dash route between Deganwy and Conwy and another in Bangor, there's a race on between the organisers to get theirs up an running first. I know the Conwy organisers are hoping to be up and running within the next few months and Abergele Harriers and Colwyn Bay Athletics Club are involved. Eirias Park was considered as a venue but it was thought that the muddy winter conditions there might put some of the runners off.

Sounds really good.  The Conwy one would suite me and the location is excellent too.  Its a bit further than Delamere from Mold but It would be a viable alternative.

Hope it goes well and look forward to running it.  Cheers.

Ellesmere Port has just started this week as another alternative.
