Antrim parkrun’s 8th birthday (It’s not about the run)

 

When I started parkrunning just over 8 years ago, I remember someone saying to me "parkrun.. it's not about the run". At the time I thought, what are they talking about, of course its about the run.. why else would I be here?  Then in  September 2013,  Antrim parkrun started, I volunteered for the first time and I loved it. I kept coming back each week, sometimes to run, sometimes to volunteer.

 

Now I get it... "parkrun... it's not about the run"! It is so much more, it's about our parkrun community & oh my goodness I appreciate it more than ever after the last 18 months.

 

What a community we have... yesterday Antrim parkrunners raised nearly £700.00 for Lough Neagh Rescue, spreading the parkrun love into another vital part of our community in Antrim.

Thank you all for being part of this amazing community and long may it continue.... #loveparkrun

Event 300 – 15th February 2020

Antrim parkrun - 15th February 2020 #300thEvent

Happy 300th to Antrim parkrun. It is lovely to see how much the event has grown during those 300 events . When Antrim parkrun started 70 - 120 would have been the normal participants and now most weeks there are 200-300. The weather didn't deter 183 who ran, walked and jogged our course. Not the nicest of mornings to enjoy and appreciate our course but we hope the 5 taking part in their first ever parkrun (Ryan Keating, Jenny Patterson, Alan McCall, Nick Ryles and Lindsay Bolton) will come back again next week. We welcomed 7 visitors to Antrim and special shout out to Alastair Dunlop from Glasgow who landed at Belfast International airport at 8.50am and managed to get to our event on time and also to Alice Doherty visiting us from Manchester but who is originally from Bellaghy.

Whilst we had no official parkrun milestones yesterday Sean McKenna did run his 150th parkrun and Storm Denis didn't slow everyone down as 14 achieved new PB's. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing, that is all I can say about yesterday's volunteers. You all stood in the pouring rain and wind and made my last Run Director occasion at Antrim go smoothly. Keep up the good work. Thanks Paul MALLON • Norman MAWHINNEY • Mairead MCCANN • Glenn ADAIR • Nuala MCKAY • Anna McKEE • Martin SMALL • Katie WILLIAMS • Nathan DAVIDSON • Nigel MCFARLAND • Aimee LOWRY • Natalie ROBERTS

See you all soon

Antrim parkrun Event number 294 1st January 2020

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more” – H.Jackson Brown Jr.

I felt this was an appropriate quote this week because we all often under estimate the joy of volunteering and I would on behalf of Antrim parkrun like to thank those of you that sacrifice their run to ensure we have an event every week.

Anyway to the stats for this week. We were joined by a record 391 runners, joggers and walkers this week many of whom were completing the now traditional NYD double. 36 were first timers and 45 recorded new Personal Best and representatives of 35 different clubs took part. Also amazingly considering the numbers all finish tokens were returned so thank you.

On the milestone front John Moore, Toni McCaig, Maread O’Neill and Mark Stevenson reached the 50 mark. Ronan Lavery, Gemma Malone and Heather Chestnutt reached the big 100. Very well done to you all and look out for the email telling you how to claim your t-shirt.

Back to volunteering. You may have noticed that the legend that is Norman our volunteer coordinator is away at the moment so I’m on a mission in his absence to fill the volunteer roster for January. This will take the pressure off him when he returns so if you can help out please take a look at the future roster on our web page and send us an email or comment below. We have a couple of slots on the 18th and 4 roles available on the 25th. Also very happy to take names for February and beyond.

See you all soon,
Ricky.
