A Clonliffe Lark in the Park

The Clonliffe girls took in the St. Anne`s Parkrun this morning. There was a wonderful turnout of athletes all suitably attired in their Clonliffe club colours. All were having their first runs of the season so it was a most worthwhile outing with all putting in fine efforts.

“Star Baker” today was Sarah Bateson going sub 20 for the first time, 19.59, with another star performancer being Ella Cooley who ran almost a minute faster today than her fastest over this route in March going from 23.50 to 22.59! Special mention also of former Harrier Kate Hession back in the fold(?), Ale Hernandez back in her real home after her Summer in Madrid, Katie Halpin running her first race after injury for 2018 and the Special One Abbie Sheehy. Well done also the Newbies Lara, Naoise, Hollie, Amy and Amy.

As athletes were racing for their companies rather than club it`s not possible to spot who else from the club competed, but full results are on myrunresults.
