Killarney parkrun #210 – 13th July 2019

The final parkrun at Muckross saw our 3rd highest attendance of 133 people who ran, jogged or walked our two lap, undulating course for the last time. We welcomed 57 first timers and representatives of 16 different clubs took part. Special praise goes to the group from Malahide who left Dublin at 5am this morning to help celebrate our last Muckross run!

Congratulations to the 15 who recorded new Personal Bests and to Tim Long of An Riocht AC who led the field home for the 17th time pulling Shane O'Callaghan and Josh Moore to new PB's in 2nd and 3rd place.
Tim is seen below leading from the start with Ray Smith alongside him:
