64 runners attend six different venues over weekend

The first weekend of 2024 saw lighter winds and brighter skies for the parkrun outings as sixty – four Springers made an appearance at six different venues.

The clearer sky meant a hard frost, and several of the parkruns were cancelled, with many others only going ahead after last minute inspections,

Portrush even provided a short but squally shower, just to remind everyone that it is January. Six personal bests were claimed as Adrian Finlay, Deborah McPhee, Alan White, Alison Duncan, Ingrid Hamilton and Shirley McGaffin started 2024 as they mean to go on.

“THANK YOU!” to all the volunteers who give so freely of their time each Saturday to make Parkrun happen, we really appreciate everything that you do.
