Record numbers at Ballincollig 5k parkrun...Sat 10th Sept 2016

A record 385 people turned out for this weeks 5k parkrun in Ballincollig Regional Park. This is in complete contrast to the previous week with the rain and the record low. A large part of this increase no doubt came from the ongoing publicity in association with the Operation Transformation TV programme. Without it, I would guess that the numbers might have been around the 220-240 mark?

I wonder were there any issues with car parking or with the extra numbers on the course?

Another great parkrun this morning, fabulous weather compared to last week. Ample parking at LIDL utilized by participants It's available every week. Plenty of room for everybody on the course, runners and walkers alike. Lots of finish tokens taken home by accident, if they could be returned that would be great since they're needed every week :-)
