Run report 205 – 27th July 2019

This week 247 people ran, jogged and walked the course, A fab Stormont welcome was given to our 34 first timers and a huge high-5 to the 27 peeps who recorded new PB's. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

We had visitors today from Devon, Cornwall, Lake District, Netherlands, Australia and Florida! Thanks for choosing Stormont parkrun...

Huge kudos to Matt from Lake District and Andrew from Australia who not only were visiting Stormont for the first time, but successfully completed their first ever parkrun!! We hope to see you back again soon!

Our American visitors were very impressed with the concept of parkrun - we just need to convince them to set up an event in Florida - spot of tourism for anyone?! lol IMG_0762Paula Robinson will be feeling kinda great (and possibly and rightly so - a bit smug) right about now as not only did she complete her 50th run but she also racked up a PB - well done Paula!

One of our juniors, Grace McCracken, completed her 10th parkrun - go Grace!

We at Stormont love our dogs... So here are a few snaps of some of our regulars... #barkrunselfies note to self, must get some snaps of actual runners next time... sorry!
