Run Report Event #147

Ballincollig parkrun
Event number 147
13th April 2019

On what was a dry but cold and windy morning 301 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 64 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers led by the RD Paula:

Colette RYAN • Derek COSTELLO • Denise MURPHY • Maretta BRENNAN • Kevin KELLY • Paula MULCAHY • Diarmuid BOWE • Daniela MORGENSTERN • Michael SCANNELL • Mark MULCAHY • Martin LYNCH • Julie O SULLIVAN • Aine MURPHY • Robert HOWE • Colette CULVER • Graham MEIKLE • Jessica SANDERSON • Jane MOFFATT • Shane O ROURKE • Linda HOGAN • Nevil SCOTT • Kevin MCDAID • Sinéad TWOMEY

While we had no new run club or new volunteer club members there was one very special lady running this morning. Congratulations to Maire O'Sullivan who decided to join us on the morning of her wedding. Congratulations to Maire and may she and her husband-to-be have many years of happiness together. Maire teamed up with her sisters Noelle and Sinéad for this morning's parkrun. Sinéad was home from California for this special occasion - the wedding not the parkrun :-)
