Event #182, 6 July 2019.

Event 182 of castletown was a mixed bag particularly weather wise. It was dry but look like the skys could open at any moment.

We had tourist from as close as Lucan and as far away as Canada.

176 of ye decided that regardless of it the sky's opened or not that you were parkrunning. This included 16 first timers and 24 people were rewarded with PB's for coming out

Shortly after 9.30 ye set off to get your parkrun fix. It must have been a fast course as the first 3 finishers all ran pb's.


Castletown regualar Michael Comer was first finsher in a photo finish with tourist Joe McCracken. Marc Augustin made up the first 3 men. Above is a photo of the first two. Marc was AWOL when I went to take the photo.


Cliodhna Carthy was first lady over the line for the 2nd week in a row. Patricia Mcloughlin and Caroline McCarthy made up the top 3 ladies. In a rare treat I did manage to capture all 3 of them for a photo.

On the milestone side of things we have one barkwalker doing their 100th parkrun. Well done to Chino picture here with the 2 humans that he looks after. Think this photo sums up what parkrun is all about.

Thats all for this week see ye all on Saturday for Event #183
