Hello parkrun athletes!!

A nice morning for running greeted 257 warriors at St Anne's on Saturday to begin the celebrations of the weekend of luuurrrvvveee!!!!!!
Was great to see so many new faces also with a good few first timers both running and volunteering.

A big BIG thank you to all the volunteers we had. This weeks heroes were:
Anna PRINGLE  •  Caroline FARRELLY  •  Carolyn BYRNE  •  Catherine LYNCH  •  Declan ROBINSON  •  Dermot COFFEY  •  Emer FANNING  •  Emer HICKEY  •  Helen REYNOLDS  •  Jamie PLUMMER  •  John O'CONNOR  •  Lorna DUFFY  •  Mark MCCOMISH  •  Padraig O FAININ  •  Richard O'CONNOR  •  Sue O'TOOLE

parkrun is now and will remain a free run with genuinly no obligation on anybody to contribute financially, but for those of you who would like to there is a donate button here

Any money raised will all go right back in to ensuring you continue to enjoy the great event that is St. Anne's parkrun, by maintaining electronic equipment and replacing the multitude of finish tokens that have, and continue to, go missing on a weekly basis.

All the facts and figures and stats and details of Saturday's run are listed below.

Thanks all for making it another great event and I'll see you at the start line next week :)
