The morning of parkrun event 142 started off overcast but dry with 198 parkrunners partaking in this event. Thanks to our 25 volunteers including pacers that helped you achieve PB’s this week.
Congratulation’s to all the Castletown parkrunners who volunteered over the past year. We received a certificate of appreciation in ‘recognition of the difference made to the lives of the people in Celbridge’ by Celbridge Council at their volunteer evening on Saturday, September 8th. We are delighted to be able to share this award which such a great group of people and you should all be very proud of encouraging and facilitating others to be active. parkrun would not exist without the contribution of its volunteers every week.
There has been an amazing response to the DCM bag drop from our facebook appeal with 5 people volunteering for the early shift and 11 for the not so early shift. Thanks again everyone that has put their names forward.
Thank you to our VI guide Eleanor and Grainne it was great to see you back with us again this week. If you know of anyone with a visual impairment who would like to participate at Castletown parkrun please get in touch us as we have a few parkrunners who have trained as VI guides.
We got a chance to catch up with our parkrunners who won tickets to the All Ireland Camogie championship who reported to have enjoyed their day out in Croke Park.
Finally, remember that next week is European Week of Sport (Sept 22 through to the 30th) with its key message being #Be Active. Castletown parkrun is one of 125 registered events nationwide. I would try to encourage you all to invite and friend, colleague, or family member to come along to parkrun that weekend
See you all next week as I’ll be joining you all at the start line.
