Event #10 – Summer’s finally arrived!

What a beautiful morning our 138 runners had at Naas parkrun this morning! How amazing did the Racecourse look with blue skies & bright colourful t-shirts running around the track?
Gerry Halton gave the runners a great warm-up before Eimear Hennessey, this week's Run Director, blew the start whistle! John Behan was our first runner across the line in 17:56, followed by Feidhlim O'Dubhlaing in 18:20 - a PB for Feidhlim! Mark Glynn was our first junior to finish this morning - he came in third position with a PB of 19:29 Tracy Jennings was our first lady across the line with a time of 20:18. There were 31 PB's in total this morning - a great achievement for our runners! Amy McGrath was our first female junior this morning to complete the 5k with a time of 22:28.
Thanks to today's volunteers for making the event such a success - Clare Craughwell, Ann Fitzgerald and Cathy McVicker! As you all know this fantastic free event is only sustainable with the help of volunteers - if you would like to help please email us at naashelpers@parkrun.com.
