This week there were 46 runners, of whom 5 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different athletics clubs took part. Well done all. We saw the return of Davey Byrne today after a couple of months of secret training and it work out well for him as he stormed home in an impressive time of 16:52. Thomas Clarke popped over from St. Anne’s parkrun to finish in 18:09, which I think was a PB for him? Cecile OLLAGNIER continues her 100% record of first finishes, that 7 out of 7 for her, there’s no stopping her !!
