Clonakilty parkrun on 23rd Feb 2019 Cancelled

The organisers of the 5k parkrun in Clonakilty have to cancel the event on the 23rd of February. It looks as if they are having trouble getting volunteers.

"Hey all really sorry about this but there will be no parkrun in Clonakilty this Saturday 23 February. We have no run director to take charge. We are really struggling to fill the run director role each week - while we have a core team they all lead busy lives and invariably cannot be available every weekend. We would ask anyone who would be willing to come onto the core team to raise their hands and let us know - it’s not a hard job and would only require the odd weekend here and there if we can get enough volunteers for the role - without this vital role being filled parkrun cannot take place & Clonakilty parkrun will not survive. Please spread the word as there will not be any notice posted on the gate on the morning. Thanks all & apologies again."

If you live in or near Clonakilty and you can help out, give the guys a shout.
