The sun was shining on St. Anne's parkrun for Event #102. We welcomed visitors from Holland, South Africa and the UK to the undisputed best parkrun in the world. The immensely good looking field of runners was led home by Wesley O'Brien, followed by a further 271 runners. Leading the ladies was Kate O'Neill (3rd overall), while our pacers Kieran Martin (20 mins) and Damien Martin (25 mins) led a number of runners to their goals. Paul Grant finished in the highly coveted 98th place. 

Congratulations to Aine Kelly and Elma Keane on reaching their 50th parkrun - what an achievement - well done ladies.

We always need volunteers - there are many regular runners who have not volunteered yet. The event's continued success depends on you stepping forward to help out, so please do. If everyone volunteered at least once per year, we would have a full roster every week many times over!

One final note: please do not take the plastic tokens home - we need them!

This week there were 272 runners, of whom 29 were first timers and 65 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different athletics clubs took part.

This week's full results can be found here.

Until next time, keep on running!

Hi parkrunners

A new dawn on 28th February in St. Annes Park allowed me to make my debut as Run Director and all nerves were blown away by
- bright sunshine
- a team of 15 amazing volunteers, who I could not have done without and
- 293 athletes who took on the course
A massive thank you to all 308 of you.

Congratulations to Bernie O'Donoghue Hynes who completed her 50th parkrun today.
Thank you to the Bank of Ireland runners, led by Conor Patton, for visiting our run today and well done on taking our "token 98" in the form of Paul Murray and also to the parkrun Personal Best Group.

St Anne’s parkrun – Event number 70 21st February 2015

Hi all,

We had a great field of 266 runners, who braved the cold and windy day to make this weekend's parkrun.
We also had a great team of volunteers who helped make the day run smoothly.
Another great thing is that we did not lose any of our tokens.

One apology to make, that we did not acknowledge Keith Fleming who completed his 50th Parkrun last Saturday. Congratulations Keith.
