South Wales' HARDCORE double parkrunners

New Year's Day is a day where some parkruns change from their usual 9am start time, allowing some hardcore parkrunners the chance to run two in one day.  Some start at 8.30am, some keep their usual 9am slot, and some start late at 10.30am, allowing those who've celebrated hard on new year's eve a bit of a longer lie in!

In South Wales there was a number of options to do the 'double'

Here is a map of how many runners did the double and where they did them, the green runs are where runners did their first run and the blue is where they did the second.  

The thickness of the line indicates how many runner made the journey. i.e. more runners went from Cardiff to Barry than they did Cardiff to Penallta.

The numbers are explained further below.

Cardiff - 806

Bryn Bach - 247

Today number of runners at 10.30am events 

Barry Island - 616

Riverfront - 627
