52 parkrunners recorded new Personal Bests. Stormont has a new Age grade course record! Emer McKee 91.25%! Happy Days!
Our regular Claire not only hit the 50 milestone but also recorded Personal Best!
Susan who is our regular parkrunner and volunteer completed her 150th parkrun!
Congratulations! Thank you for a cake and boxes of chocolates, it helps to have something to refuel after crossing the finish line.
As about refueling, as usual there was a healthier option available: the oranges brought to you by Trevor, and can you believe that he does it every week!
And while talking about a parkrun menu, a coffee stall was fully operational this week. Welcome back Max! Thank you to all the helpers who brought water and the cups last week.

New Years Day Double 2018

This New Years day it is possible to run 2 parkruns (both counting). This is the only time in the year where it is permissible to do this. We have teamed up with Waterworks & Ormeau parkrun to coordinate different start times and make it possible for runners to achieve a 'double' should you wish to attempt it.

Stormont parkrun will start at the normal time of 9:30am on Monday 1st Jan 2018. Waterworks & Ormeau will start @ 11am. This will give runners enough time to get to Waterworks or Ormeau

Please like and share to spread the word!!!!
