May the 4th be with you! That was certainly the case for our 187 participants this morning who were treated by a course baking in fresh sunshine! It was a bit of a scramble to get our volunteer roster completed but in the end we got there and 14 volunteers made it possible for Poolbeg parkrun no 89 to go ahead.
We had visitors from Norway volunteering on our famous/notorious hill, a visitor from South Africa who joined us for his 50th parkrun and ran a PB at that (well done Unis!!!) and the same could be said for TV3 weatherman Deric who also ran a PB. In fact we had a grand total of 40 PBs today as well as 28 first timers! Representatives of 14 different running and triathlon clubs took part.
Next week’s volunteer roster is looking good already, which is nice after the scrambles of the last week. Even if you do DIL at 4.15 come down to run or support as we also will pay some extra attention to mental health week.
Enjoy your long weekend and see you next week!
