Antrim parkrun Event number 224 30th June 2018

What a scorcher we had this week and I take my hat off to the 231 of you that ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 40 were first timers with visitors from New Jersey, New York, Manchester, Catterick and some of neighbouring parkruns. Despite the heat 27 of you recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to the C25K group from Run-Anon who graduated this week. We hope you enjoyed your run and we loved to see you back with us soon.

On the milestone front Isaac McCollum was our first finisher whilst recording a PB and completed his 10th run. Jonathan Porter completed his 50th, Nuala McKay completed her 100th and 2 of our run directors Shauna Gibson & Aidan O’Neill completed their 150th.

Finally a special thanks to Tania, Fionnuala and Ricky for providing the refreshments. I think with the weather we had the ice cold drinks went down well.

Antrim parkrun Event number 219 12th May 2018

What a cracking day we had for our return after a 3 week break. We had our second highest attendance with 303 of you running, jogging and walking are lovely course. An amazing 58 of you achieved PB’s and we had 50 first timers – well done to you all.

On the milestone front Daniel Johnston achieved a PB on his 10th parkrun, Frank Silo & Ann Marie McGarry completed their 50th and finally Robert Atkinson & Co Event Director Anne Smith reached their 100th. Well done to you all and we look forward to seeing you all in your new milestone t-shirts soon.

Whilst we were away the following also reached significant milstones;
50th – Christine Graham, Martin McIlwaine & Gary Kennedy.
150th – Kathy Fleming, Eddie Coughlan & Paul Mallon.
200th – David Conliffe.

One final thing to note is that we have now found out we cannot overturn next week’s cancellation and therefore there won’t be an Antrim event next week. We apologise for the confusion but this gives us all a chance to do some more parkrun tourism.

See you all on the 26th May.
