Full Ponty challenge extended and the addition of a new stat - the v-index!

Full Ponty challenge

Back in April a new parkrun started in Bala, Wales, and it was officially named as Pont y Bala. This update includes the Bala parkrun in the Full Ponty challenge that so many people love :)

v-index stat

The p-index generated a lot of interest - and quite a bit of confusion, when it was first introduced, so the v-index doubles the fun :) Instead of having to do some parkrun tourism to improve your p-index, the v-index focuses on different volunteering roles.

This was first mentioned by Mel in Episode 158 of the parkrun adventurers podcast - check it out!

It’s all very simple, it is the number of different volunteering roles, v, that you have done at least v times each.

Many thanks to Pete Johns from Melbourne who wrote the initial code to add this based on the p-index, and created a pull-request in GitHub so we could included it - Nice one!

How do I get all of this great stuff?

If you have already installed the extension it should update soon - typically we have found it takes a few days for Chrome and Firefox to auto-update, but it should do so eventually. If you haven’t yet joined the fun you can get it from one of the links below. :
