Event 273 – 1 August 2020

Great to be seeing a consistent turnout of runners and walkers, since we started back on 4th July. Numbers are consistently just above or below the 100 mark, which is particularly good for the winter stint. With the first run back, being almost triple that of the same time last year, everyone must be very keen - keep it going folk!

As there was no newsletter last week, I would like to acknowledge the achievement of Rebecca O'Sullivan, for completing 200 runs on 25th July. Pretty amazing milestone, when you're only 8!

Congratulations also to the Lawlor family, for clocking up 150 between them (Lucy100 /Adam50) and well done to Paige. Though I can't say congratulations on your first Park Run, as you have done it so many times already, with Mum.

Thanks to all our lovely volunteers, have a great week everyone and see you Saturday.

Keep running,

Kate
