A gorgeous but crisp and fresh morning on the estate today which saw 225 people run, jog or walk the course. We welcomed 26 first timers and 40 peeps recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 25 different clubs took part too. A special Stormont welcome to our visitors from Manchester and beyond
So pleased to see so many junior runners on the course today, they all did fantastically well.

Celebrating the real heroes of parkrun... the volunteers!
The core team
Stormont parkrun happens largely because of our fantastic volunteers, who are almost all regular runners like you. The weekly team of volunteers are led by a small group of parkrun enthusiasts who form what we call the 'core team': They make sure the event is setup and packed away each week, the results published, the tokens resorted, event reports written and so much more.
parkrun is entirely organised by volunteers so please do get in touch with us if you would like to get involved as a volunteer, we are always on the look out for some new faces - it is great fun and we will only put you in a role that you are comfortable with.
