To avoid your parkrun day getting spoiled, please do not park within 100m of the traffic lights at the entrance to Seán Moore Park on Beach Road as you are at risk of getting clamped.
The GAA car park is also out of bounds for parkrunners so while Beach car parks may be a bit further away, they remain a good alternative if you are looking for parking.
Runners coming back from the 1st loop of Sean Moore park and heading out into the headwind towards our turning point on Irishtown hill. It was a tad windy this morning but one of our visitors still nearly managed to break the course record. Well done John, next time you are down and its less windy that record is definitely yours!
Caroline and her team of 15 volunteers made it possible for 128 people to run, jog and walk around our course. We had 27 were first timers, some of which who are in town for the match between Ireland and the All Blacks later this evening (COYBIG!) and of those returning 22 recorded new PBs. Representatives of 16 different running and triathlon clubs took park. We suspect that token number 118 went off to watch the rugby later also as we were missing it, we promise a free run next week if you return the token please and thanks as we re-use the tokens every week!
See you next week for more parkrunfun! The roster is already half filled but if you want to know what its like to be one of the high viz heroes contact us and we will slot you in :)!
Traveling to Poolbeg parkrun by car? The the best place to park is on Strand road or in one of the Sandymount Strand car parks. Please do not use the parking in the GAA club and consider residents when you are parking.
If you live close why not walk / bike / run to the start as a warmup!
