Gorey parkrun No.54 Run Report

The results have been processed and are available at: http://www.parkrun.ie/gorey/results/latestresults/

30 participants and 13 volunteers turned out on a bitterly cold morning to take part in Gorey parkrun this morning, including 5 first timers. It was possible for us to go ahead thanks to Gorey Municipal Council who kindly gritted the footpaths of Gorey Town Park to prevent any frost from forming.

Despite the cold, running conditions were perfect. This was reflected in the results which saw 9 of the 30 participants record personal best times. I suspect that the cold spurred people on to get it done as quickly as possible so that they could get back into the warm.

Our volunteers did a great job as ever. At least those of us that ran were able to keep warm, but our poor volunteers were stood out in the cold for the best part of an hour. I hope you are having a well earned hot drink to warm up. Thanks to every one of you, I've said it before and I'll say it again, you truly are the life blood of parkrun.

Hopefully the weather gods will be smiling on us and we with have a lovely bright, sunny, warm morning for next weekend's Gorey parkrun and that we will see all of you out at Gorey Town Park.

Well done folks, great work by everyone. #loveparkrun
