Carlow Town parkrun Event number 30 19th May 2018

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
