Gorey parkrun No. 57 Run Report

The results have been processed and are available at: http://www.parkrun.ie/gorey/results/latestresults/ If you have any issues with your result, please let us know at goreyoffice@parkrun.com

Due to heavy overnight rain, he had some flooding on the course this morning. Thanks to a bit of swift brushwork by some of our volunteer elves, enough water was cleared to allow the run to go ahead. However, due to the flooding, we had to redeploy our regular photographer to puddle watch duties, so we wont have any photos today.

We had a good crowd of 46 participants and 12 volunteers turned out on damp, breezy morning to take part in Gorey parkrun, including 11 first timers, it is always great to see new faces.

Running conditions were tricky,resulting in only 2 participants recording personal best times.

A big thanks to all our volunteers who did a great job this morning, with them there would be no parkrun.  Next week's volunteer roster is looking very sparse at the moment so if you, or non-running family members, can afford a couple of hour to help out, please let us know at goreyoffice@parkrun.com. All volunteer roles are very easy and straight forward, you will be told all that you need to know before hand and there are always other experienced volunteers to help you out if you run into problems. Volunteering may seem daunting, but it is really very simple and rewarding.

Next weekend sees the first Gorey parkrun of 2018. So time to brush the dust from your runners, retrieve your running gear from the back of the cupboard and start your New Year Resolution as you mean to go on. We look forward to seeing all our regular and new participants out at Gorey Town Park next Saturday.

Well done folks, great work by everyone. #loveparkrun
