Our weekly roundup starts as usual with parkun. Gareth ticked Tullamore off his parkrun tour list finishing in (28:39). Closer to home Geraldine and Carmel were on the volunteer roster at Gorey while Justin and Donna gave a helping hand at Avondale.
Conor and Clara headed north with their four legged Canicross companions for round 3 of the All Ireland Dryland Mushing Championship. Well done to Conor and dog Ralph who finished in 1st place in their 5k race while Clara and dog Grouse took 3rd place in the womens 5k. Super performances!
Junior parkrun is back in it’s second event following the Christmas break. Huge well done to juvenile members Adam, Alfie, Baileigh, Ben, Beibhinn, Chloe, Evan, Fiadh, Harper, Hanna, Layla, Libby, Madison, Ruairi, Saoirse, Tristan & Tommy.
Big thanks to the essential volunteer roster this week of Alison, Slawek, Gian, Susan, Zydrune, Gareth, Donna, Justin, Carmel, Aoife & Geraldine. This great free event relies on new volunteers to keep it going so please do get in touch if you would like to offer to join in the fun!
Also on Sunday we were delighted to have three members represent the club at the Wicklow Masters Cross Country in Shanganagh park. Huge well done to Michael (24:40) and Tiernan (25:34) who took on the 6k course and to Denny (18:00) who won a silver medal for finishing 2nd in his age category in the 4k race. It is great to see the club competing in these events and thanks to the support/cheer crew on the day!
