Event #159

Saturday morning was another fine cold winters day that saw 349 people (second largest attendance at Castletown parkrun ) toe the line for event #159. We welcomed 39 first timers and only one tourist (that made themselves known to me) Nick Di Mascio, all the way from Perth, Australia.

Well done to the 44 of you that achieved personal bests and congratulations to our 5 regulars who reached  milestones, Sean Heneghan and Paul Foy on 100 runs, and Sarah Griffin and Simon Corbett on 50 runs and Emily Roache who completed the junior 10 milestone. don't forget to claim your milestone tee shirts guys.

As always , special thanks to all the amazing volunteers (28 this week) who make this event happen, especially our own "lock hards", the car park crew .Thanks also to Oran Hayes, one of our transition year volunteers on completing his required number of weeks for his Gaisce award, all our TY volunteers have been a great help since October, thank you all.

For anyone who would be interested in being a  visually impaired guide at parkrun there will be a training session after parkrun on the 2nd of Feb'.

Thats it for this report, see you all on Saturday,

John O'Lone.
