Father Collins parkrun - Event number 232 - 22nd February 2020
On a sunny but bitterly cold Saturday morning, 100 people ran, jogged and walked the course at Father Collins for parkrun number 232. This is a great turnout as the weather hasn’t been very pleasant the last couple of Saturdays but our numbers are still doing great so well done all.
7 of the participants were first timers so we hope that you will return very soon and a big well done to the 9 people who recorded new Personal Bests. There was also representatives of 14 different clubs who took part on the morning.
Each week, we are indebted to our volunteers who make it all happen for parkrun so a big thanks to our 11 volunteers: Feargal FITZPATRICK • Paddy RYAN • Austin KEEGAN • Witek LOCHOWSKI • Matthew TOBIN • Ide MULCAHY • Guus LEEUW • Sandra FOX • Martin LEONARD • Seetal KC • Oisin DE CONDUIN
Please remember that everyone can volunteer, and everyone should volunteer as its great fun and a great way to meet fellow parkrun people. And its not as difficult as some of you think, just ask some of the Run Directors!
The Aesthetically Pleasing Time of the Week goes to Lorraine Mackey who ran a personal best of 26:26 so well done on the personal best and the award.
Some of our Run Directors went travelling on a bit of parkrun tourism last Saturday as Rachel, Maebh and Matt headed to Tolka Valley parkrun for their 3rd birthday party and did their parkrun. Don’t forget everyone that there’s nine different parkruns within a 10k distance of Father Collins parkrun and all you need to do is to bring your running gear and of course your barcode.
