This week’s parkrun of the week is the Llyn Llech Owain parkrun, which takes place every Saturday morning in Llyn Llech Owain, Gorslas. The event recently celebrated its 5-year anniversary on the 24th March, which marked the 264th time the event has taken place after being founded by Liz and Jack Tremlett back in 2013. Over 100 participants turned out for the 5-year anniversary celebrations, with 13 first time parkrunners and 15 new personal best times being recorded. In addition, on the 17th March the event celebrated National Sleep in Day with up to 70 participants running the 5k course in their pyjamas!
The Llyn Llech Owain parkrun course is run on a mixture of gravel, trail and tarmac paths and offers a scenic course for runners of all abilities. In addition, every Saturday morning there is a post-run coffee gathering at the Caffi ar y Llyn café, where runners, spectators and volunteers can socialise together.
