Carrickfergus parkrun – Event #158 25th March 2017

Today's sunshine bought 140 of you to run, jog and walk the course. Amongst the 9  first timers were the Camp family from Leeds doing a spot of parkrun tourism. Well done to the 42 of you who recorded new Personal Bests. That must be a record number of PB's for Carrickfergus! We think these PB's were most definitely due to the fabulous encouragement from our youngest volunteer today Princess Maia! One of today's PB's was Charlie (JM10) who finished in a time of 21:42 - terrific running Charlie. As always thanks to the 13 wonderful volunteers who made this event happen. They are -

Gary DAVISON, Kathryn HEGARTY, Nicola IRVINE, Derek KANE, Susan KANE, Marian MACH, Karen MAGILL, David PATTERSON, Alyson SANGSTER, Gary SHIELDS, Andrew SMYTH, Rebecca TESTER, Simon TRIMBLE

If you or maybe a friend or family member who comes along to parkrun with you would like to volunteer please get in touch, via Facebook, email carrickfergushelpers@parkrun.com or give your name at the finish of next week's run. Thanks for the positive response we received today during our face-to-face appeal. See you all next week :)
