parkrun Profile: Deerpark Carlanstown


Deerpark parkrun in Carlanstown Kells Co Meath is a small event, with a big community.  Event Director Tony Walsh explains the three lap ‘challenging’ course…


Coming along to Deerpark Carlanstown is a great way to start your Saturday morning and to see so many people communicating and improving their overall fitness is brilliant.


Although Deerpark Carlanstown is a challenging course, it provides some great views with a couple of small inclines, the most recognisable feature is the mound at the front which allows you to view the whole course.


As we don’t have huge numbers we consider ourselves a very friendly team with plenty of encouragement on the way round.




We are lucky that the community group ckcd (Carlanstown Kilbeg Community Development) attend every week and has offer tea, coffee and water to everyone.


One parkrunner started with us last December and hasn’t missed one since he has also became a parkrun tourist trying to complete every event in Ireland, he had a pb last week managing to knock more than six minutes from his original time!


Deerpark Carlanstown parkrun has had a great impact on the local community, the core group of parkrun volunteers has increased and parkrunners have now joined other groups as a result of attending parkrun, including the local GAA club and Local community group CKCD.
