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!
We were thrilled to welcome Sally O'Regan, a parkrun tourist from Roundshaw Downs parkrun in the UK - this was Sally's 96th parkrun and said it was an enjoyable course!
Gerry of course was on hand this morning for a super warm-up and tips for our runners - a big thanks and thumbs up from us all! We'd like to thank this weeks volunteers Daniel Prone, Niamh O'Reilly and Cathy McVicker and we'd also like to wish Daniel the best of luck in his Triathlon in Athlone this afternoon! Over the summer months we'd appreciate help with our volunteer roster to keep the event running smoothly - please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you could spare an hour of your time on a Saturday morning!
We hope all our parkrunners running in both Achill and Clontarf events today had a great run and we look forward to welcoming them back to the Racecourse next week!
See you all bright and early next week - keep up the training!
