This week 86 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 7 different clubs took part.
This week was the beginning of our 6 week parkwalk series where we are making a special effort to get the people of Carlow out walking. It was amazing to see 40 walkers this morning on the track. I think we had more than 40 dogs and and we may employ a special dog marshall for all the first time barkwalkers.
A big shout out to our tourists from Mayo, Stratford in the UK, France and Johannesburg!
The event was made possible by 10 volunteers:
Christopher DAVEY • Gerard CUDDIHY • Clare CUDDIHY • Lisa KENNEDY • Deborah DINEEN • Claire MAHON • Lisa DOOLEY • Michael MOORE • Peter PUDAITE • Catherine FARRELL
