It was a busy river bridge at the first Carrickfergus parkrun of 2018 with hockey, football and 118 parkrunners - not forgetting the volunteers to whom we are hugely grateful for maintaining their stationary position on such a cold morning!
This week we had 20 first timers including 7 of you doing your very first parkrun. Well done on taking that important first step and we look forward to seeing you back soon. Well done also to 7 of you who started of your parkrun year with new Personal Bests. Congratulations to Chris Pollard who completed his 50th parkrun this morning.
Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.
