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!

A special shout out to Peter Young of Lagan valley AC who reached the landmark of 50 parkruns this morning at our event.

Our first male finisher was an unknown athlete, the first time this has happened in 28 events! Our first female finisher was Aine Gosling (21:33). Overall we had 20 unknown athletes this morning. This is very disappointing given our constant reminders about participants bringing their barcodes. Please make life easier for the volunteers by ensuring that you have your barcode.

Well done to Rebecca McCann who became our first volunteer to reach the milestone of volunteering at Castlewellan on 25 occasions. Hopefully her well- earned and well-deserved t-shirt will be on its way from parkrun HQ.

Castlewellan parkrun – Event number 26 – 24th March 2018 – Run Director’s Report

This week 132 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 19 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part. This was slightly disappointing turnout as we had expected the clear blue skies and spring sunshine to tempt a few more out. Given the excellent numbers throughout the long and bitter winter, we had high hopes for today. Perhaps the busy weekend of races near and far goes some way to explaining our smallest turnout to date. Thanks to Natasha McCartan who kindly donated some delicious apples for the finishers – they were very well received. Connaire McVeigh, in his maiden parkrun and Pamela Bailey were our first male and female finishers today.

The event was made possible by 19 volunteers:
Bill CASH • Nicola MATHERS • Nicky MCKEAG • Joe MCCANN • Michelle MCCANN • Ronnie HORROX • Noel GALLAGHER • Aoife MCVEIGH • Rita DEVLIN • Fionnuala SIMONS • Niamh O'CONNELL • Ciara HARDY • Justin MORGAN • Martin RAWLINSON • Linda ROGAN • Ciara PICKERING • Dualta PICKERING • Clara ROGAN • Donal WARD
Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers, many of whom volunteer most weeks and sacrifice their own run to enable others to enjoy their run. Our Roster is full for 31 March, but we need volunteers for 7 April and the weeks that follow. To keep our parkrun sustainable, we all have to do our bit to help out and take a turn at volunteering. Please let us know if you can help out in April, particularly 21 April, when many of our stalwarts will be running Bushy Park, Teddington when they are in London for the Marathon on Sunday 22 April.
