It was a fabulous morning at Newbridge House with the sun shining and temperatures a little warmer than for the previous weeks. Thanks to all the volunteers. We really appreciated having a full roster and it's great when we welcome new volunteers as most seem to really enjoy doing it. If you would like to volunteer next week or for any parkrun please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our facebook page or sign up at one of the runs.
Congratulations to all 133 who completed the 5k and well done to the 35 of you who achieved a personal best. It was great to see we had lots of walkers this week and we welcome runners & walkers of all abilities.

Next Saturday falls on the 1st of April so for the day that's in it we're going to set up the course in reverse. The start will be at the finish and the finish will be at the start with the 5k in between run the opposite way to normal. We're not joking !
On Sunday 2nd April we will have a stand at the Donabate Community College Spring Fair from 2pm to 5pm. We will be there promoting parkrun so please come along and say hello.
Hope to see you all again next Saturday at 9.30 and don't forget your barcode.
