    Story

    Parkrun is a series of 5km runs held on Saturday mornings all over the world. There are 27 parkruns in Northern Ireland (28 if you count Magilligan but it has a somewhat restricted participation!).

    Since getting started with a running buggy nearly 6 months ago, Ben and I have made it round Castlewellan, Citypark and Kilbroney. So, for a bit of fun, we have now decided to try to run all 27 parkruns on Saturday mornings over the next 6 months. We hope to enjoy the craic, do our bit of awareness-raising and, hopefully, raise a few pounds along the way to help Ben's fantastic school (Donard School, Banbridge) to purchase a treadmill for the pupils.

      It appears we have done it!! 27 parkruns completed and I was delighted to finish at Falls Park, where the support and welcome was absolutely superb. The generosity of so many friends, as well as people I didn't even know before this challenge, has been totally mind blowing. I'm really excited that I'll be able to give such an incredible total to Ben's fabulous school so that they can get a treadmill to further enrich the school experience. Thank you all for the support, x

      Well, I am as blown away with the donations and support we have had as I was nearly blown off the Peace Bridge in Derry yesterday!! Thank you so much to everyone who has encouraged and helped us throughout this challenge, it is hard to believe we are down to the final run next week. The penultimate was Derry City, which was lovely even though it was a bit damp & blowy!
