Event number 130
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. Well done one and all.
