This week 122 people ran, jogged and walked the course at Carrickfergus. As well as parkrunners from Cheltenham and Kent there were 9 first timers. Well done to Junior parkrunner Lucy Carter from Kent, third female finisher today and one of the 27 parkrunners who recorded new Personal Bests. Great job all the first timers and the PB'ers.
Representatives of 8 different clubs took part. One of our regular club runners, Graeme O'Hara, celebrated his 100th parkrun today. Well done Graeme and thank you to all your friends for the delicious cake in Cafe Pi after parkrun.
'Loved all the fancy dressers today - can someone please disclose the identity of this runner? I just couldn't figure out who they were. Great costumes everyone - parkFUN for everyone!
