PARKRUN ON TV!! On Friday 21st March, 7pm, the RTE Nationwide tv programme included a feature on Marlay parkrun. Anne Cassin and her team were along to film all the runners and volunteers, and get an insight into the amazing community phenomenon that is parkrun. Once you see this video you'll really see that parkrun is indeed for everyone. Enjoy.
