25th January 2020- a Day for Celebration

#130 saw a great turn out at Fairview parkrun. We were lucky to have a celebration - Deirdre Sheehan celebrated her 50th parkrun at Fairview parkrun. This was our first offical celebration of a milestone at Fairview parkrun. Deirdre had a great run for her 50th pakrun and was in great company for this special milestone, Along with Deirdre we had 151 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 38 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests. We had some park run tourist who completed event #130 of those who made themselves known we had Jamie from Yorkshire, Ben from Devon, David from Gladstone parkrun in London , John from Swords and Pat from Griffen parkrun. We all hope you had a good event at Fairview parkrun and hopefully we might see you again soon. We love to meet visitors and parkrun tourists at our event so please don't be shy and come and meet us at 9.15 at the first timers tree. Of the 151  participants that completed Fairview parkrun we had representatives of 7 different clubs taking part. The first three male finishers were Torben Dahl 19.39, Chris McGiveney 20.17 and Alan O Flynn 20.33. The first three female finshers were - Elizabeth Smyth 23.49, Niamg Shea, and Julia Bosslet 26.00.

Fairview parkrun Event number 126 28th December 2019- One Small Change

Fairview parkrun
Event number 126
28th December 2019- One Small Change

At the last event of 2019 we took a few moments to think about making one small change. In terms of parkrun that could be to volunteer one in ten, or to make an effort to say hello to somebody at the start line or finish line. This one small change could be the beginning of a new parkrun friendship!! We could all take a moment to encourage ourselves or others to walk , jog or run at a parkrun event. Or when we are completing the course to say a friendly word to our fellow participants or volunteers on the day. At event #126 we had 61 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 12 were first timers and 7 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different clubs took part. We had some lovely visitors at parkrun - Cathy and Tim from Northamptonshire (thanks for volunteering Tim !!), Anthony from Greece, Mark from Sydney and Mike, Joanne and Adam from Humber - East Yorkshire.

As always event 126 was made possible by 13 volunteers many thanks for the following for giving up participation at Fairview parkrun and helping to make #126 possible- Shane ROE • Darragh SHIELDS • Tim SAUNDERS • Muriel WEEKES • Leonie WEEKES • Ailish LALLY • Muriel Philomena WEEKES • Tom MCKIERNAN • Eugene BENNETT • Mary RUSSELL • Joyce MURRAY • Oliver POWER • Fiona SUNDERLAND. Please see our furture roster at each event or facebook message or email fairview@parkrun.com if you would like to volunteer in 2020.

Event #126 full results and a complete event history can be found on the Fairview parkrun Results Page.

Please bring with you your hard copy of your barcode to #127, your 2020 one small change mindset and clothing to suit the weather :) please come for 9.15 to the first timers tree if you are new to Fairview parkrun and 9.30 for the start of event #127
