Event number 128
11th January 2020- A breath of fresh air that brought the feeling of a New Year and new beginnings!!

There was a breath of fresh air (or for those who were present for event 128) a bit of a breeze Event 128 had a feeling of a New Year and new century! We were lucky to have 155 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 31 were first timers and 10 recorded new Personal Bests. We were graced with a selection of new faces of these were visitors from other parkruns as well as new participants to Fairview parkrun. 10 participants went home a little happier than most with new pbs (personal bests) Congratulations to  Sean BOYNE, Caitriona COSTELLOGeraldine CLEMENTSHannah JONESJennifer DUFFYEllen FLEMINGGrace FALLONEmer FALLONBabu PATEL, and Emma DUFFY. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part. Congratulations to our first male finisher who was Sean Boyne with a time of 19.21 and our first female finisher who was Caitriona Costello with a time of 23.14. This was a great achievement considering the windy weather!!
