Paula gets PB in Parkrun 5k

Week-end results: Good to see the Park Run idea gaining strength in Ireland. Paula Prendergast took advantage of these relaxed low key events when she finished first woman and got a PB at Marlay Park in Dublin. Although the West does not have parks similar to city or major towns there seems to be no reason why this initiative could not be put to good use in Mayo. The open space areas of Beleek, Lough Lannagh, Westport House would seem to be ideal for these regular Sat morning turn up and run races. This link might give you a flavour of what they are like –
