Castletown parkrun 201

Winter is coming, so if you are running or volunteering ensure you bring appropriate gloves and footwear!

This most recent parkrun started bright and frosty we had 234 parkrunners with tourists from as far away as South Africa and as close as Malahide join us. In total we had had 12 first-timers and 9 tourists. We hope to see you all again!

This week saw a few milestones:


Jenny Smyth (who vounteered on the day to do pre-event set up)


Dee Kearns - I am not sure everyone made it into the picture



Castletown regular Thomas Lawlor marked event 201 with his 100th parkrun.


Congratulations to you all!

This week was pacer week and it has been noted that there was 44 PB’s so well done to the pacers who may have assisted in parkrunners achieving their PBs.

Once again thanks to all the volunteers who give up their time to ensure we can carry out a safe events every week!

We hope you enjoyed our parkrun and hope to see you all again.
