Event 38 Report

Evenin' all!

Another good crowd and good vibes galore this Saturday. We managed to avoid the rain and conditions were great for a good run, calm and cool.

Philip Cohen was first male finisher for the second time on our course. First female was visitor Maeve Walsh, congrats!

This week 52 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by these 10 epic volunteers:we want to welcome Cliodhna to the event, we really appreciate your help and are so happy to be able to help you work toward your Gaisce award.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Tolka Valley parkrun Results Page.

There was a bit of confusion in the funnel on Saturday due to people finishing before they had completed 5km, please don't come through the finish line/funnel if you haven't completed the 5km, you can walk, run, jog the course or do all three but only come through the end if you have completed the full 5km please, it just makes everyone's Saturday morning a little more chill.

That's the craic,

Look forward to seeing you all Saturday for another great event.

Thanks

Debbie
