The Parkrun Thread

What Copper says is factually correct. How we all interpreted it is another story!

Congrats mate - hope the T-shirt is runner fit

No kids GAA this morning so might trot around the one at Sports Ireland campus. It’s a right good track - international cross country course.

A lovely park. If ye didnt try to pull a fast one on opposition teams by telling them to park a mile away ye’d be almost likeable.

I was motoring along at leisurely 7:30 pace this morning, this young lad overtook me with 1k to go and muttered something, he had all the gear, i didn’t like the look of him and decided stalk him and to bide my time for the last 400m, I upped the gears to 5:00 and went past him like a rocket, I could hear him cursing “ffs” I’m an auld lad now in the 45-49 category, what a feeling, he made a go of it but there was no catching me, take that you British bastard

Fellow parkrunners, is there anywhere on the parkrun site that confirms what locations are having events on St Stephen’s Day? Usual Saturday events should be taking place on 23rd but there are often additional Christmas Day &/or Stephen’s Day events put on. I’m trying to find one for the 26th without having to click into individual event Facebook pages. Can’t find anything on official parkrun site.

I think goal mile have 26th wrapped up?

Ah yes, didn’t think of that. Although that’s a Christmas Day event out my way in St Anne’s. I’ve clicked around & you can go into the volunteer roster section at each location on the Parkrun site & see upcoming event dates. Plenty of additional New Year’s Day runs but haven’t found any 25/26 December. Might have to lace up this Saturday instead in my €300 aluminous green carbon plated runners to duel with a few aul wans.

Their Facebook pages probably the best. Gorey doing one on Xmas Day.

The goal miles appear to be incentivising GAA clubs to run them.
