Run Report from Run Director 21st June 2014

On a fine glorious morning I was privileged to be Run Director of Tymon parkruns 2nd Event. It was indeed a very easy task as Aisling , your Event Director and her team ran around doing all the hard work. All i had to do was show up!!!! Not so easy however for Aisling when a certain someone mentioning no names (Avril) dropped the Finish Tokens onto a large pile on the floor - just as our 1st runner was completing his first lap!! I really should't have laughed!! However with a calm composed demeanor Avril with her band of merry women - soon had the situation under control and the Finish Tokens were quickly back in order again. Oh to see what goes on behind the scenes!!

After a pre run briefing the runners and walkers were off leaded on his bike by the dashing Rob!! Who wouldn't want to run with him in front of you!!! I very nearly set of myself!!
First Male across he line was Liam MOLLOY (VM35-39) of Brothers Pearse AC in 16:46. Then Brendan O'CALLAGHAN was second over the line in 17:51. Followed in by James CROWLEY of Tallaght AC, third over the line in 18:21.
First Lady home was Camilla TUFFY of Dundrum South Dublin Athletic Club (38th overall) over the line in 23:51. Followed in by Karen HOPKINS second (39th overall) over the line in 24:02. and then Eimear KILLEEN was third (41st overall) over the line in 24:05.
