Carrickfergus parkrun – Event #174 – 22nd July ’17

This week 124 people smiled, waved, jumped, walked, jogged and run the course at Carrickfergus parkrun. There were 14 first timers and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Well done to all of you!  Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.

Special congratulations today for Scott Smiley (JM 15-17) on completion of his 10th parkrun and Beth Mullan (JW11-14), first female finisher today and Mark Kitchen on completion of their 50th parkruns.

The event was made possible by 10 volunteers: Marian MACH • Roger IRWIN • Michael HAMER • Laura LAVERTY • William JENKINS • Karen MAGILL • Helen CLARKE • Julie MARSHALL • Kathryn HEGARTY • Vivien DAVIDSON

Finally if you're thinking it's time you volunteered then it probably is. parkrun relies on its runners and friends & family. If everyone takes their turn then you'll not have to volunteer more than 1 out of every 10 parkruns.. You will be made very welcome, given the necessary training and a whole  'parkrun extra' experience.
