Loads of visitors today at Poolbeg parkrun, including ones from the park where parkrun started: Bushy . We also had people from Fareham, Lisburn and a few other parkruns from both the UK and Ireland, with a crew from ‘The King and I’ joining us as well for their morning run. And we had a visit from the guy (or girl) above who then spectated from a safe place up one of the palm trees.
In total we had 167 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, made possible by 12 high viz heroes. 29 of you were first timers and of those returning 34 recorded new PBs. Well done to all of you! Representatives of 17 different running and triathlon clubs took part. We lost token 90 so if it went home with you in error please bring it back next week!
The roster for next week is looking fuller than those in recent weeks already, but if you happen to do the large parkrun (aka the Womens Mini Marathon) with 30.000 others next Sunday why not help us out on Saturday and spare the legs!
