No Barcode No Time

Please note from this Saturday. No barcode - No time. We have been known in certain circumstances to manually put in barcodes. But our volunteers spend enough time processing results without the time it takes to manually put in barcodes. So from now on No barcode - No time - No exceptions. We also do not accept barcodes on mobile phones. It may seem harsh but I'm only looking after our volunteers.

 

LBD

Well our LBD (Laminating Barcode Day) has gotten off to a good start. If you would like to get your barcode laminated then please bring, after the run, an A4 sheet with your barcode clearly printed next Saturday and the fallowing few Saturdays to Insomnia Cafe in Dunnes Stores shopping centre, Gorey. Please do not pre-cut your A4 barcode page as it makes it very difficult to laminate.

 

Thank You

Thank You! You have completely turned it around. We have enough volunteers!!! Gorey parkrun survives another week. We, the core team, received a newsletter from parkrun reporting how difficult this time of year is to recruit volunteers. So I'm sorry for being so dramatic but when panic mode sets in lol I have to act. So as Event Director I personally thank you.

 

*** URGENT APPEAL ***

We have a shortfall of volunteers for Saturday. If we don't fill them then we can't go ahead. Please don't let this happen. We've worked too hard to let this fail. We need a scanner. We need someone to hand out finish tokens. We really need four marshals. If we get these, then we're sorted. Your parkrun needs you.

Thanks
Elaine

 

Zero to 5k

Hi everyone. When I started up parkrun in Gorey it was partly for selfish reasons. I wanted to meet people with similar interests A-and somewhere I could run. Well I'm back to running after a year of injury from a broken ankle. I've finally been given the all clear. So I did my first 5k with Gorey parkrun last Saturday. I was chuffed with my time 39:49. How's about that??

 

Photos for our 25th parkrun

Please go to our Facebook page to see our photos from our 25th event. Little did we think that we would be on number 25!!! Thanks to Ciara Jone for filling in for John O'Conor as photographer. Here's to the core group who over the last 25 weeks have made this parkrun the enjoyable well run event that it is. Don't take our word for it. Type gorey parkrun into your web browser and see for yourself. Thank you and Here's to the next 25..

 

This could be your lucky day

You lucky lucky lucky people. Imagine it! Saturday morning, the sun is shining (hopefully). The ground is dry underfoot and there you are, dressed in your hi-vis..... bib volunteering for your very own Gorey parkrun. Bliss!!

If you want to have that feeling. Then hop over to our Facebook page and put your name down to volunteer.

Go on, you know you want to

 

Many thanks

I'd like to thank everyone who came along to the pub quiz last night. We really appreciate your support. I would particularly like to thank our core team who worked tirelessly for our parkrun. Adele John Gareth Tamsin and our new members Suzanne Stuart and Angus. Our quiz master on the night Roisin and her able assistant Kevin. All of the above mentioned are the people who volunteer on Saturday too. We really need to widen the net of people who can step in when members of the core team are unavailable. So please give our volunteers a big thumbs up for all their hard work. Thank you guys

 

Tea / Coffee = Chat = friends

From now our after run meeting place, to do the results and photos, will be in Insomnia coffee shop in the Dunnes Stores shopping centre. There's plenty of parking. So see you there!
