Wow, just wow! It’s nearly 2 years ago that a group of us came together on a Friday night in the GAA club to get a briefing before the first ever Poolbeg parkrun. None of us knew what to really expect but were hoping for people to show the next day.
100 parkruns later we had our 2nd highest attendance in Poolbeg today. Thanks to all of you for showing up each week, volunteering and being supportive! And make sure to join us for our 2nd birthday in a months time!
We had loads of regulars and visitors today leading to a grand total of 231 people who ran, jogged and walked the course. We had 44 first timers and 37 of those returning recorded new PBs. Representatives of 19 different running and triathlon clubs took part.
Our friends from the Sanctuary Runners made it back to Poolbeg to join us today which was great to see. No matter where you end up there will be a parkrun near you to welcome you guys!
We had visitors from the UK and to top it all we had a very special price of art to mark the occasion! Thanks to all.
The volunteer roster was hard to fill for this week, the holiday period means that loads of people are away so if you haven’t volunteered yet and are around this is your chance!!! We need a minimum of 12 each week and many thanks to the 17 in total that made today possible! See you all next week!!!
