First PARKRUN Tralee 2015

St.Brendan's AC had a  part in making history when the Female winner of the first ever PARKRUN in Tralee was our club member Ursula Barrett. She also has the honour of being the female record holder (at least for one week).
Inaugural Parkrun Tralee took place on Saturday, 24 January.  
Tralee is the 5th location for this type of event in Munster. 

Quick instruction how this works:
1. register on-line (need DOB & email address) HERE, it's free
2. print your barcode (best if you can laminate after printing), keep with you at the run
3. come to the starting line (few minutes earlier if you a first timer to get briefing) - you don't need to register or show your barcode
4. start running/jogging/walking when you hear whistle - 3 laps of Tralee park, clockwise.
5. at the finish line you will get small token/badge with barcode (this is linked to time)
6. hand over token and your own barcode for scanning - this will get your name attached to time. If you don't have your own barcode, your name will not appear on official results page.

150 people made an effort in the first week and it was a broad mixture of runners and walkers in all ages and abilities.
Well done to all St.Brendan's AC members who took part in first event and we will keep monitoring progress over the next week and months with monthly updates:  Ursula Barrett, Joe O'Brien, Catherine Burke, Chris O'Shea, Cathy Quilter, Caroline Harrington-Stack, Shannon Quill, Yvonne Quill, Artur Nowak
