There will be NO Naas parkrun on Christmas day.
The beautiful blue skies of the past week were nowhere to be seen this morning but our runners still had a tough run as temperatures hadn't dropped! Despite the heat, 21 of our runners achieved a PB - well done to you all!
First across the line this morning was Ashton Farrell of Naas AC with a brilliant time of 17:43 followed by Aaron Browne of Lakeshore Striders in 17:57. Our first lady to complete the course this morning was Marie Keane with a great time of 21:44! Our first junior to finish this morning was Billy Kelly, who ran an amazing race and achieved a time of 24:25 - well done Billy, keep up the great work!
Thanks to this weeks volunteers - Ann Fitzgerald and Aidan Nulty who took some fantastic photos!
Unforeseen circumstances have scheduled an unplanned two week break for Naas parkrun - we will be back in action on Saturday August 16th! In the meantime however, why not try out some of our neighbouring parkruns - Waterstown Park, Tymon or Griffeen!
As you know parkrun is only sustainable with the help of volunteers - we really need everyone's help to keep this event going. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know when you are available to help out with this fantastic, free, community event!
See you on the 16th AUGUST!
A little bit of rain did nothing to dampen our parkrunners' spirits or energy levels this morning - 16 new PB's recorded and some very exciting finishes!
Feidhlim O'Dubhlaing was first across the finish line with a great time of 17:37 - a new PB, followed by Daniel Courtney. Aimee McGrath was our first lady today and also achieved a new PB. Jack Fitzgerald was our first junior across the line in a great time of 19:28.

What a gorgeous morning it was for our parkrunners - it's such a beautiful sight to see all the colourful t-shirts running around the track with the blue sky as a backdrop! Well done to everyone getting up early on a Saturday morning to fit a run into their busy schedules.
It was great to welcome Ashton Farrell back to parkrun this week who was first to finish and also achieved a personal best with a great time of 16:53. Amy McGrath was our first female and first junior to cross the line today - great running! 14 of our runners recorded PB's this morning - a great performance by everyone!
