A bright, mild morning greeted 129 participants who ran, jogged and walked the 5km course. We welcomed 19 first timers and 16 participants recorded Personal Bests. Well done on setting a Personal Best on New Years Day. What a great way to start the year off!
Congratulations to some of our regulars who became Parkrun tourists in Copenhagen on New Year’s Day.
We started at the earlier time of 9am to facilitate people who wanted to complete two Parkruns on the same day; New Year’s Day being the only day of the year that we have this privilege. People attended Mungret, Ennis and Knocknacree Parkruns at 11am to get a great start to 2020!!
