This week 264 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 38 were first timers and 43 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

A special well done to the Pace C25K group who graduated this week. You were all brilliant and we hope you continue to join us at Antrim parkrun.

We had 2 milestone runners this week completing their 50th parkruns – Rome Riley-Dobbin who has completed 40 of her 50 at Antrim and Nigel Seymour who has completed 19 of his 50 at Antrim. Well done to you both.

A final reminder that we are off for the next 3 weeks and will return on Saturday 12th May.

The event was made possible by a Pace takeover of the volunteer roles in conjunction with our Dof Ed volunteers:

Sarah BARROW • Paul O'KANE • Kerri THROWER • Heather CHESTNUTT • Karl THROWER • Paula HENNESSY • Paul MALLON • Norman MAWHINNEY • Timothy MCEVOY • Karen GILL • Liam DEAN • Julie MCQUILLAN • Diane LYNN • Tanya SMITH • Hazel MCDOWELL • Katie WILLIAMS • Nathan DAVIDSON

Antrim parkrun Event number 217 7th April 2018

In near perfect running conditions 254 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers and an amazing 42 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

Milestone runners this week were John Calderwood who completed his 50th parkrun with 43 of those at Antrim and also Joanne Hodge who completed her 100th run on only her second appearance at Antrim. Well done both you and keep an eye on your emails for instructions on how to claim your milestone t-shirts – there is a bit of a backlog so you may need to be patient.

A big thank you to Kevin McAteer who generously donated a number of umbrellas for the volunteers which I’m sure we will put to good use on the wet mornings.

Next week Pace will be taking over the volunteering in conjunction with a couple of our Duke of Edinburgh volunteers and after that we are off for 3 weeks before we return on Saturday May 12th for a County Antrim Harrier takeover.

Hope to see you all next week.

Antrim parkrun team.
