Results of the 5k parkruns in Cork - Sat 27th Jan 2024

Results of the 5k parkruns around the county on Saturday 27th Jan 2024. Approximately 1061 runners and walkers took part in the 10 events in Co Cork.

Report... The 27th of January was the first Saturday of the new year where it wasn't raining or there wasn't ice and conditions were pretty much ideal for a 5k parkun. It was about 8 deg C for most of the county so it's wasn't too cold either.

Over 1000 runners and walkers took part in the 10 events this week and there was a notable surge in Cork City. I presume this has something to do with the Operation Transformation TV programme but the mild dry conditions probably helped as well.

Glen River... There was a big jump in numbers this week going from 64 last week to 136 this week. Well done to Michael Naughton who completed his 100th 5k parkrun! 

Michael's first parkrun was at Glen River back on the 13th of July 2019 and 98 of the parkruns have been at the Glen. The remaining two were at Tramore Valley Park. He also has 134 volunteer credits to his name.

Bere Island... Well done to Mags O'Neill who completed her 100th 5k parkrun today! 

Mags has completed 84 of the 100 parkruns on Bere Island with a further 12 at Glengarriff. Mag's first 5k parkrun was on Bere Island back on the 4th of November 2017.

Tramore Valley Park... Well done to Dympna Murphy who joins the century club as well! Dympna has most of her 100 parkruns pretty evenly balanced between three events... 36 at Tramore Valley Park, 35 at Ballincollig and 28 at Glen River. There is also one lone parkrun up in Athlone. 

Dympna's first parkrun was at Tramore Valley Park back on the 24th of October 2015.

Glengarriff... Two runners joined the 100 club today in Glengarriff. Marie O' Mahony and James O' Mahony. 

Marie has completed 81 parkruns at Glengarriff with 8 in Macroom. Marie's first 5k parkrun was at Wycombe Rye in the UK back on the 8th of June 2013.

James has completed 83 at Glengarriff with 8 in Macroom. His first 5k parkrun was at Macroom back on the 18th of May 2013.

If I missed anyone who passed a notable milestone like 100, 200, 250 or above parkruns then let me know.
