Event #119, 8th April 2018.


It was another morning when the weather was not quite sure what it wanted to do. But once it was dry we where happy. To the people who reminded us that the 2nd lap sign was facing the wrong way, that was a plant to see if ye were all awake and congratulations ye all passed.

Overall 227 people ran the course. As soon as the runners set off I spotted Lee Van Haeften in the crowd and knew a fast pace was coming. Lee completed the course in 16:51. John Regan and Philip Doyle made up the first 3 men.

Breda Smyth, Sinead Graham and Sandra Mc Laughlin were the first 3 ladies home.

We took the opportunity to announce the parkrunner of the month for April. We had a  hard decision this month so we decided for the 2nd time it went to a fantastic family. Well Done to the Kiernan family. To find out more about them here is a link to the Q&A (April parkrunner of the month)

We also had 3 people enter the 50 Club Well done to Catherine Tuite, Liam Fennelly and Paul Hawkins. Paul was the only person I could catch to award his 50 cert.
We had William Moore on camera for us, to see his amazing photos check out out flickr page here

We have a few interest parkruns coming up in the next two months so keep your eyes.
