St. Anne’s parkrun Run Report #77 – 18/4/2015

A cool crisp sunny morning greeted 304 runners and walkers to St. Anne's parkrun for the 77th running of the event. The field was led home by David Byrne and Deirdre Byrne in the male and female categories respectively. Neil MacDermott took home (or more pertinently, did not take home) 98th spot this week. Special mention to Deirdre Byrne who was first lady home for the 20th time in her 20 appearances at St. Anne's - she also scanned barcodes afterwards.... Well done Deirdre.

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.

St Anne’s parkrun – Event #6 – Run Report

Once again, our sway over the weather gods proved critical in ensuring our runners stayed dry this Saturday. Long may our superpowers last! Our 6th event at St Annes drew 187 runners, some dusting off their boots after slogging through 26.2 Dublin City Marathon miles last Monday. This week saw Brian Christensen make his debut in the Run Director chair. Like a duck to water, Brian took to the role naturally and will be back in the hotseat for the event on 9th November and more in the future.

This week, the runners were led home by Martin MCKENNA (unattached) in 17:57, followed by Aidan JONES  (SM25-29) (Unattached) in 18:18, with John MCAULEY (Crusaders) rounding out the top three in a time of 18:26. The ladies were led home once again by Aoife BRADY of Sportsworld, in 19:51 - this was her third time as fastest finisher in her 3 appearances here at St Annes. Aileen HOOPER of Raheny Shamrocks AC, was second lady over the line in 22:23, and Jenny COLBERT (Unattached) in 23:06.

With 6 runs now under our belt at St Annes, it is time to have a look at the current overall standings in the annual points competitions. The ladies are leading the way here guys.... time to rally!

 

Eilis O BROIN (Unattached) 522 pts.
Jenny COLBERT (Unattached) 478 pts.
Emer FANNING (Unattached) 440 pts.

Brian CHRISTENSEN (Unattached) 485 pts.
Michael GYGAX (Raheny Shamrocks AC) 467 pts.
Jamie KENNY (Raheny Shamrocks AC) 454 pts.

Well done to all participants, and a special thanks to all of our volunteers. The volunteer roles are all easy-to-do tasks, and by helping out, you are ensuring that the run continues to go ahead on a weekly basis and continues to be a success! We need to keep building the roster of volunteers so that the same people aren't doing it week in, week out! Email stanneshelpers@parkrun.com to help.

We put some pictures on line that we take most weeks, but these are just casually taken on our phones. If you are a budding or expert photographer, we'd love to have you down to take some snaps, you'll get volunteer points and most importantly an enormous sense of well-being!

Our volunteer team this week was as follows:

Brian CHRISTENSEN  •  Colm KERNAN  •  Gemma KILLEEN  •  Jamie KILLEEN  •  Joan Mary HARRIS  •  Mark MCCOMISH  •  Mary PATTERSON  •  Peter O'TOOLE  •  Siobhan HOGAN  •  Susan HOLMGREN

We still see a lot of runners forgetting their barcodes, meaning they get an 'Unknown' time. Don't forget that barcode to record your PB!

This week there were 187 runners, of whom 62 were first timers and 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different athletics clubs took part.

Stannes parkrun started on 28th September 2013, and since then 606 different runners, including participants from 30 athletics clubs, have completed 1,165 runs covering a total distance of 5,825 km, and there have been 223 new Personal Bests.

St Anne’s parkrun – Event #3 – Run Report

186 runners participated in St. Anne's event #3 held yesterday, 12th October. The cooler weather and patchy drizzle at the start did little to dampen the spirits of this bunch of Saturday morning sportsters. As usual, following the safety briefing, the runners were off shortly after 9:30am on the fast, flat PB-encouraging course.

Kieran MARTIN (SM30-34) of Crusaders Athletic Club, was first over the line in 17:08. He was followed by Mark MURPHY (SM25-29) of Raheny Shamrocks AC, in 17:12 closely followed by Gerard MARTIN (SM30-34) (Unattached) in 17:13.

First lady home for the second week running was Aoife BRADY (SW30-34)  of Sportsworld, in 19:00. Aoife was followed by Marie BYRNE (VW35-39) of Clonliffe Harriers A.C., in 20:05 and Helen CARR (VW35-39) of Raheny Shamrocks AC, in 21:03.

Once again, we would like to remind runners not to take the finishing tokens home with them - please bring them along with your athlete barcode to get scanned after you have finished. These tokens are not for keeps!

Finally, we would like to thank all this week's volunteers, some of which were first timers, all doing a superb job to ensure the event ran smoothly -

Anita BANSAL  •  Amit BANSAL  •  Andrew BRADLEY  •  Antonia MARTIN  •  Brian MURTAGH  •  Catherine KILLEEN  •  Denis MURPHY  •  Eoin FEGAN  •  Jamie KILLEEN  •  Jamie PLUMMER  •  Susan HOLMGREN
