This week saw Lucan Harriers take over Griffeen parkrun and organise the race and carry out all the volunteer roles. It was a huge success with the sun shining and 197 people joining us to run, jog or walk the free 5k route. Of them 37 were members of Lucan Harriers Athletics Club and 27 members volunteering including the pacers and tail walkers. There was also refreshments for after the race with the Club members spending Friday night baking and they put on a real spread. First home for Lucan Harriers and second overall was Alex O’Brien in 18.06 followed in 8th place by Will Byrne. First and second ladies home were both from Lucan Harriers with Breda Smyth finishing in 21.19 followed by Anne Whelan in 23.24. It was a wonderful morning and showcased all that is good with the Club.
