Event #13

Our first parkrun in June saw 97 runners hit Naas racecourse track on a humid summer morning. Trevor Mc Cormack of Portlaoise AC, making a first appearance at Naas parkrun, was first over the line in 17.52. Mark Glynn, our first junior home followed in 2nd place. Mark also came 3rd in the All - Ireland 800 metres last weekend. Well done Mark. Sharon Grant, also of Portlaoise AC, was our 1st lady home in 19.18. Sharon now holds the women's record. Great running Sharon. We hope to see you again soon. This week saw thirty runners record new PB's. A fantastic achievement by all.
Thanks again to Gerry Halton from Naas AC for another wonderful warm up and friendly advice.
We would like to thank this weeks volunteers for all their help this morning - Roseanna Nolan, Patrick Morgan, Leonard Jacob, Kevin Halpin, Siobhan Coughlin and Rosalyn Tamming. A special mention to our photographer/ runner Stephen Dagg for taking the photos. Check out Naas parkrun website to view photos.
As you know parkrun is a free community event that can only be maintained with the help of volunteers. If you would like to help out in anyway please email us at naashelpers@parkrun.com.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we hope to see you all next week.
