Second Class from Corrigeenroe National School run a first class event!


The Second Class students of Corrigeenroe National School, Boyle, Co. Roscommon took over all of the volunteer roles at Lough Key parkrun on Saturday, 25 May. The children arrived early for a volunteer brief and took their marshal positions by 9.15am. The Finish Line team were ready to time keep, scan, give tokens and sort tokens.


Ryan McManus took on the role of Run Director. Ryan has completed over 10 parkruns himself, so he has plenty of experience for such a young man. Ryan gave an excellent briefing to the parkrunners, and it was reportedly the most well-organised briefing so far this year!


It was a resounding success all round, with plenty of compliments to the young volunteers from the 212 parkrunners on the morning. Lough Key parkrun has some new parkrun family members now, all raring to come back and volunteer again!
