Killarney parkrun #209 – 06th July 2019

This week 67 people ran, jogged or walked the course, of whom 31 were first timers and representatives of 13 different clubs took part.

Well done to the 5 who recorded new Personal Bests and to James Daley from Tralee parkrun who led the field home for the 2nd time and to Rachel Cohen of Bull City Track Club, Durham, North Carolina who led the ladies home on her first ever parkrun. James has done 48 parkruns, all but 3 in Tralee, but set a new outright PB today being chased by one of Rachel's clubmates, Ryan Laytham, who has a parkrun PB of 16:53.

James also set the highest Age Grade score.

Congratulations to Mary Casey who broke her own W75 Record.

Congratulations also to Killarney stalwart Vincent Hussey who ran his 150th parkrun today and truly deserves a loyalty award having done them all in Killarney!
