Run report 230 – 11th January 2020

It was a BIG day at Stormont Estate.

The rumor was that the new running club is kicking off at the top of the hill. But it’s part of the parkrun code to share the park with other users so no bother to us. Everyone is welcome! Come and join us every Saturday at 9:30am, free, timed 5k run, jog, walk. Or try volunteering - great way to give back, have fun and meet new people.

                     Parkrun is for everyone.




People were saying that there was some excitement in the air but when we arrived in the morning all we could feel was WIND. And what a wind it was! Obviously in the wrong direction so 260 people who run had to put significantly more effort to keep moving forward. 14 PBs were recorded – what an achievement in this weather!

Lyn Sheldon, surrounded by her running buddies from Scrabo Striders, completed 150th parkrun.


Michael Osborne reached a 50th parkrun milestone. Congratulations!

We had visitors from Donegal and Wallace parkrun.

The event was made possible by a team of wonderful volunteers:
David RAINEY, Max MCROBERTS, Stephen HAMILTON. Aisling SPAIN, Linda INGRAM, Magda BERNATEK, Debi ALLEN, Gillian SADLIER, Mark HUNT.
