Carrickfergus Parkrun 182 – 16th September 2017

In it's 182nd outing in Carrick this week, Parkrun was brought to you by Michael COLVILLE at North Rd, Nicola IRVINE writing on the soggy paper, Carol DOWNEY keeping you right & left at river bridge, Graeme O'HARA & Karen MCILROY keeping a record of your times, Gary SHIELDS in Shaftsbury Pk, Catherine STEELE handing out tokens, Karen MAGILL scanning those important barcodes, Ruth HAWKINS stepped in last minute to help on the 2nd scanner, as did Glen MCCABE who walked the tail along with our youngest volunteer Jamee PEART and Vivien DAVIDSON. Many thanks to all the volunteers for bringing us another successful run on a day that started out dry and crisp but changed to wet and cold.  In my first ever go as Race Director, I was very glad to have such a great roster of volunteers there to make my job so much easier.

Please remember to have a look at the future roster and volunteer if you can; it is said a lot, but it is fun, rewarding and can even earn you another tshirt. Without volunteers, Parkrun doesn't happen.

This week 135 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part.

Well done to all,  Especially to NEILL HARPER who today completed his 100th Parkrun, earning that highly sought after black tshirt; Many thanks for the very tasty and well decorated cake.  Also to ADAM KINGSTON who I missed at the start, but I see from the results has now completed 10 runs as a junior runner, very well done..
