This week 213 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 60 were first timers and 44 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part. Many of our first timers today were from Ormeau Runners, including many of our fellow Ormeau parkrun stalwarts. We look forward to seeing you all back soon. Our first finisher today was William Laye from England who set his fastest ever parkrun time in his 188th outing (16:58)! Castlewellan must be a flat course! Wonderwall, on the lead bike, proffered words of wisdom and encouragement to the poor lad the whole way around! Aoife Cochrane was first female finisher (22:10). David Corrie completed his 10th event as a Junior 11-14 and recorded a PB! Martin Smith made the long trip from Portrush parkrun and has now completed all 25 events in Northern Ireland. Well done!
