This week 81 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 12 were first timers and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part. Run Director Phil took charge of the event and was ably assisted by a host of wonderful volunteers (many of whom were resting the legs prior to the 40th DCM).
The event was made possible by 12 volunteers: Des REID • Alan FOLEY • Yvonne CLARKE • Rachel MARKEY • Maebh MONAHAN • Matthew TOBIN • Denise GREHAN • Aisling CONROY • Phil CLARKE • Maurice O'CONNELL • Liz O' DWYER • Pauline LALLY

Marathon weekend is always a fun one! There were a few nervous volunteers who were all set to toe the line on Sunday morning and plenty of runners who volunteered at the marathon or lined the streets to cheer the runners on. Marathon bag drop is now manned entirely by parkrun volunteers and this runner was delighted to see so many familiar faces when leaving my bag in! Every year there are more and more familiar faces lining out for the friendliest marathon in the world! Well done to all our amazing volunteers, supporters and runners!
