Well done to all Parkrunners and volunteers involved at the weekend

Sunday saw the Slieve Gullion Ultra and Katherine Harkness completed the 63½ k distance in an amazing 6 hours 54 minutes in 3rd place and was also first female over the line. Another incredible achievement by the Dubs ultra queen.

Thanks, Fra
