Clonakilty parkrun hits the 100 mark...

On Saturday the 23rd of January 2016, the Clonakilty parkrun was held for the 100th time. The very first 5k parkrun was held in Clonakilty on the 1st of February 2014. As you can see from the chart above, the numbers have been roughly between 20 and 50 each week. In fact, the average is 34.6.

To date, some 839 people have taken part in this parkrun. The highest number taking part in one event was 100 on the 26th of September 2015. Of the six parkruns in Co.Cork, only the one in Macroom is older.

None of this would be possible of course if it wasn't for the small army of volunteers who keep the show on the road.
