St Anne’s parkrun # 292 – 27/07/2019 Run Report

Well the first thing that went our way was the weather.

This was the 3rd time that we had a Raheny Shamrock "takeover" day and after the deluge that hit us last year, it was great to see the sunshine this year. The main purpose of the takeover is that all the volunteers are provided by our local athletics club, Raheny Shamrock AC and the regular volunteers get to take the day off and maybe get a run in themselves.  parkrun is very much a volunteer event and can be a little harder to resource during the holiday period.

As such it was great to be able to turn up on Saturday morning knowing that there were over 50 volunteers to arrive before 9:15 in the morning.

While it was the 3rd day in conjunction with the Shamrocks, there was a slightly sombre tone. It was the 2nd anniversary of the passing of Johnny Fennel, a runner who would be well known to most of the Shamrocks and someone who was regularly involved in parkrun. With this as a backdrop there were a number of things that magically happened on the day. 476 people participated in the run, an incredible 93 earned PBs on the day, including fellow RD Colm O'Toole, everyone was silent of the briefing (which was a first) but more amazingly no-one headed to the start line before the briefing was finished. Hopefully the briefing left everyone with a couple of thoughts - enjoy life and your running and remember those that have passed on for the things that they enjoyed. Remember them when they were happy.

We had a number of people celebrating their 50th parkrun - Fran O'Reilly, Raimunda Vasconcelos Siqueira, Eve Horgan and Tom O'Regan. Congratulations to you all.

We had visitors from across the globe, Ray  from Cairns, Peter, Julie, Chloe and Sophie Hartley Green who visited from Swansea, Steven Swan from Bristol, Brian Moore from Hampshire plus a sprinkling from other parkruns in Ireland. We hope you all enjoyed your run in St. Annes and look forward to your return.

Micheael Lindon grabbed the coveted #98 token and the prize that went with it.

Speaking of prizes, we had a large number of spot prizes donated to us for the day and our great thanks go to those who donated. Thank you to Pat Hooper, Christy Reilly, Val Hand, Brian Kelly and Nora Byrne from the Shamrocks, Sean Reid from Ignite Gym, Connor Jennings from Zurich Insurance and Helen Carr from The O'Brien Press. Congratulations to all those who went home with these prizes, a nice treat for a Saturday morning. As if parkrun wasn't treat enough.

AND it was pacer Saturday too, which probably helped the PBs that were hard earned.

As always, it was a pleasure to be your Run Director for the day. I really enjoyed myself and I hope you did too. I couldn't have done it without the team of volunteers I had helping me so a massive thank you to them.

See you all, same time, same place on 3rd August.

Keep running

St Anne’s parkrun # 274 – 02/03/2019

Before you run tomorrow let's take a minute to reflect on last week.

The roster was full from the Thursday evening so off we went.

The biggest relief was that it was dry, it always makes for a more enjoyable run, I'm sure you'd agree.

The biggest news of the day was that the launch of Park Walk, a 6 week initiative to entice many to join in parkrun, was launched. Jamie, Louise and Conor were on hand to welcome all of those who were taking that first step, with Louise and Conor acting as co-ordinators throughout the event.

Celebrations aplenty were taking place with Colm (one of the latest recruits to the core team) and Rachel O'Toole jointly celebrating their 100th parkrun. Joining them on this milestone was Declan Boyle. Congratulations guys on reaching this great milestone.

We welcomed Steve Beddoe from Bakewell parkrun visited our parkrun in between some serious concerts in the Olympia Theatre and promptly scooped the legendary #98 token.

Celebrity watch was in full flow for some of our female runners and they were not disappointed when Virgin One's weatherman Deric Ó hArtagáin burst into our world at the last minute, fitting in some photographs both before and after the run, with a bit more time to chat after the run. Even managing to fit in a bit of filming while the runners assembled for the start.

After siren start the rest was poetry in motion. The volunteers, who we are always grateful for did their thing and 547 people completed the course and got their results - after the team managed to catch a bit of refreshment in the ever welcoming Olives Room café.

See you all in the morning, don't forget your barcode and don't duck out of the funnel before getting your position token which you will not bring home.

The stats are below

St Anne’s parkrun Event #215 – 01/01/2018

2 for 1, get it here, 2 for 1, one off chance, today only, last time this year.

In the middle of storms Dylan and Eleanor we got to experience our own perfect storm. The traditional New Years Day double header, 9.30 in St Anne's park and 11.00 in Father Collins park blew into 2018 with 292 people in St Annes and then 244 people in Father Collins.

Eager as people were to get the year off to a great running start, the first people arrived before 9.00 while the set up was taking place. The new year atmosphere continued to build as participants flooded towards the briefing point. There were parkruns from all over the country represented. In no particular order Tralee, Ardgillan, Donabate, River Valley, Ardgillan and Malahide were represented. We also had a number of first timers - both to St Annes and to parkrun - so we want to extend a massive welcome to all those who are now parkrunners.

Congratulations to Ailish Cassidy who recorded her 50th parkrun. Thank you also to the fabulous volunteers who have brought parkrun into another year. As we always recognise, the success of parkrun is dependent on the ongoing contributions of their own time that volunteers give, week after week. It will always be appreciated and never taken for granted.

On a personal note I would like to thank everyone for the warm congratulations given to me while volunteering for the 100th time. And thank you to all the members of the core team who help keep the run going. It is not every day that I would be comfortable standing in the middle of a public park wearing a pink boa, but for some reason it felt right on New Years Day.

Our 215th run took off at 9.30 and a number of people headed off on a journey that would end up being a 5k run, a 10k run with a 5k drive and for some a 15k run by running to Father Collins park for 11.00. I know there were a number of people who got through the first 5k and were drawn by the lure of Olives Cafe, fresh coffee and the smell of baked scones. The rest of us headed to Father Collins park for round 2.

Did I mention that Ardgillan parkrun were here.

So ended the St Annes leg of the double and I leave you with the only rule of parkrun. DON'T FORGET YOUR BARCODE. No barcode means no time on that day.

The stats for the day are below, so congratulations to the 54 first timers and 22 PBs.Not a bad start to the year.

See you next Saturday
