Perfect Running Conditions – Event #14

Our 87 runners enjoyed perfect running conditions at Naas Racecourse this morning! This was reflected in the high number of PB's this week - 48 in total, what an achievement! First across the line BREAKING THE COURSE RECORD was David Keenan from Newbridge AC with an amazing time of 16:19 - we'll be expecting lots of challengers for this time over the summer ;). Amy McGrath was our first lady across the line with a PB of 21:10. Our first two juniors across the line Mark Glynn and Jack Fitzgerald also recorded PB's this week - fantastic running guys.
Gerry Halton from Naas AC was on hand this morning for a great warm-up and some very helpful running tips for our all our parkrunners! Thanks a million Gerry and best of luck to you and all other Naas AC athletes taking place in the Kildare Masters taking place in Celbridge later today.
We'd also like to thank all our volunteers this week - Catherine Barry, Claire Craughwell and Cathy McVicker. Over the summer months we'd appreciate all help with our volunteer roster to keep the event running smoothly - please email us at if you could spare an hour of your time on a Saturday morning!
Naas parkrun reached a very important milestone this week - we now have over a thousand runners registered at our event - great accomplishment in such a short space of time! Keep spreading the word!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and looking forward to seeing you all again next Saturday!
