Run report run no 102: 03/08/19

The parkrun family is a very special family, which is was clear in Poolbeg this week with a lot of regulars making up the 14 head strong volunteer team that made today’s event possible. With a lot of people away it was only late last night that we filled our roster and could breathe a sigh of relief that our event could go ahead safe and timed. Thanks a mil to our volunteer family!! It’s the circle of parkrun :)

This week we had 125 people who got their August Bank holiday weekend off to a flying start by rubbing, jogging and walking around our scenic course. We had 20 first timers with visitors from London, Cardiff and also from Navan in the Royal County! Hope you all enjoyed yourself, sorry about there being not a lot of sea breeze to cool you down! Despite the muggy weather 29 of those returning recorded new PBs and representatives of 7 different running and triathlon clubs took part.

Regular runner and plogger Ultan reaches his 50 parkrun milestone today and he did these parkruns in 7 different countries! Well done Ultan! And well done also to Ultans dog who reached the unofficial milestone of 25 runs today!
Next weeks volunteer roster is looking healthy already but we have a few more slots to fill so contact us if you are interested in helping making Poolbeg parkrun happen! Enjoy the long weekend!
