Erris parkrun Event number 13 – 14th May 2016

The sunshine and the beautiful scenery around Cross Lake and views of Inis Gluaire, the final resting place of the Children of Lir, provided the idyllic location for Erris parkrun on Saturday morning last.  This week there were 30 participants, of whom 3 were first timers and 9 recorded new Personal Bests. We welcomed Colm Sheehy and Norma O’Connor  from Tralee parkrun and Nora Monaghan Feeney from Knocknacarra parkrun for their first event in Erris.  We hope you enjoyed your experience and that we will see you back again at some stage in the future.

A massive thank you to all our volunteers and especially our Run Director Gerry Keane who looked after proceedings this week. We desperately need volunteers next week (and every week) to keep parkrun going so we are asking people who have yet to volunteer to come forward please!!!!

A reminder to everyone to bring their barcode with them each Saturday – No barcode, no results. Alternatively you can bring a spare and leave it on file at the finish line so you can retrieve it to have it scanned!

Looking forward to seeing you all next Saturday morning and in the meantime I hope you make the most of the sunshine!!

Colm SHEEHY  of Born To Run, was first over the line in 21:12 in his first appearance at Erris parkrun.

Erris parkrun – Event number 8. 9th April 2016

Saturday 9th April started as a cold frosty morning but by the time parkrun started at Cross Lake the sun was shining and the cold was gone. Numbers of participants were noticeably reduced due to the participation of a number of regular parkrunners in the Connemara half and full marathons and congratulations are extended to those runners who braved the horrendous weather conditions in Connemara.

We welcomed a new parkrunner this weekend, Mary Nicoll, who was the first woman over the line on Saturday while 8 others recorded new Personal Bests. While we like to see progression we wish to stress that parkrun is not a race and we welcome joggers and walkers to take part and get active each Saturday morning for the health benefits that accrue and also to enjoy the social element which is so important in parkrun. Families are especially encourage to complete the course together.

Male placings:
Garrett O'MALLEY was first over the line in 22:26 - first time in 7 appearances. Well done
George GERAGHTY was second over the line in 25:47.
Michael ODONNELL was third over the line in 26:19.

Female placings:
Mary NICOLL (was first (4th overall) over the line in 26:42 - first appearance.
Sarah MCGUIRE was second (5th overall) over the line in 27:09 - was first to finish once before.
Edel WALSH was third (6th overall) over the line in 29:30

A special word of thanks to our volunteers and we are appealing to parkrunners who have yet to volunteer to put their names forward in the coming weeks.

Weather is up -  see you all Saturday!
