Parkrun #289 FINAL PARKRUN OF 2019 28/12/19

Another wonderfully mild morning at Carrick parkrun at which 104 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests (wayhay! Well done). Representatives of 10 different clubs took part. We even had visitors from Holland and New York (we hope you enjoyed our course!).

The event was made possible by 11 volunteers:

Maggie HUNTER • Carol DOWNEY • Lynda SHANNON • Marian MACH • Linda WALLACE • Jane CORDNER • Karen MAGILL • Charley WRAY • Holly MCGOWAN • Maria KIRKPATRICK • Audrey HOY

As always we are looking for new volunteers to do their part, why not make volunteering at parkrun one of your New Year's resolutions (one you intend to keep though, eh?), as, if we don't get enough volunteers there is no parkrun. We'd love to see some new faces try it out, it's not difficult and there's always craic to be had. Join us on the dark side!

Speaking of New Year, there will be no parkun at Carrick on New Year's Day; however there are still plenty of opportunities to complete a parkrun (Valley perhaps), or complete a double if you're feeling really daring (Waterworks is a bit later on...just sayin'),

Whatever you do, we hope you have a wonderful New Year and wish you all the best for the coming year.
