Last Saturday morning saw 284 parkrunners (19 first timers) complete the course. 68 PB’s were achieved with the help of the pacers (one while trying not to be caught by the 35 minute pacer).
We had Karl Mitchell complete his 50th parkrun as well as volunteering to brief first-timers/tourists beforehand. That really is bringing out the true spirit of parkrun and we couldn't have the event without the volunteers!

Congratulations to our regular parkrunners (Paddy Mc Donnell; Paul Foy and Philip Slattery) who completed the Donadea 50 km last weekend (and the only acceptable reason to miss parkrun). They came prepared with their well earned bling from the day!
Thanks to all our volunteers as parkrun doesn’t run without you!
