    It seems to get longer with each lap. Kilkenny is a great parkrun but it's tough, that hill 3 times is killer! My dad and sister ran it this morning too.

    Second week of the Den Haag park run took place this morning around Zuiderpark for those who like coffee shops & sexy windows!!!

    At Kilkenny there are 164 in the official results but easily well over 200 there. Those without barcodes were advised not to enter the funnel at the finish. Very well organised I must say.

    That's not normal parkrun policy, they want the numbers of parkrunners recorded even if they don't have barcodes.

    Seems very odd alright. Getting a position token was always a good way to know roughly what time you had.

    All the Dublin parkruns seems to be starting on the 25th? Its kind of ridiculous that its taking so long to get parkrun going again. Such a safe healthy outdoors activity. When you can have pints in a pub and watch a game in croke park on the same day.

    What are the nearest parkruns to Dublin which are open? Trim, Navan, Naas, Russborough.

    Russborough is off next Saturday, some other group have use of the grounds.

    Most look like they're starting back on the 25th in Dublin but some haven't made a decision yet and of course, they'll all need to volunteers to start back. After 19 months with no parkrun, people may have found new interests to do on a Saturday morning so time will tell..

    With the change in government guidelines we are delighted to announce that all 5k parkrun events can reopen across Ireland from Saturday 25 September.

    Some good news :)

    Great to be back. Spent the whole run trying to slow my pace a bit. The crowd really drags you along with them compared to running alone

    I did St Anne's this morning, was ran very well even hand in hand with the bigger market which I was thinking could be an issue.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,567 ✭✭✭ Lazare


    Similar in Corkagh, there's a new market set up at the Start/Finish area. I had the same thoughts, but it worked out really well. All the stall holders had their cars and vans out of there by 9.


    So great to be back.

    Post pandemic PB for me today, and not a huge distance off my course PB from that event from 6 years ago. Giving me visions of being able to get close to that again.

    Great to be back, tymons new route is a bit up and down with the double buggy!

    Another new route? How many routes have they had now? At least 4 I think.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,453 ✭✭✭ crisco10


    Yeah think there's works on in the park.

    I was counting, think it was my 5th routing up there? But could be 4..



  • Moderators, Regional East Moderators Posts: 23,061 Mod ✭✭✭✭ GLaDOS


    Delighted to do my 2nd parkrun, 18 months after the first!

    Cake, and grief counseling, will be available at the conclusion of the test



  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 15,683 Mod ✭✭✭✭ adrian522


    Probably 5 given that the previous route has been run both forwards and backwards.

    Does anyone know if the virtual volunteer app doesn't work with certain phones? I was trying to use it Saturday but the camera is very zoomed in when I go into the app and won't read the barcodes.. I tried zooming out obviously and checked the settings but can't see anything obvious. Its a Huawei phone.

    No idea, tbh. I was timekeeping at the weekend. Did you scan your own barcode in first, to turn it into 'virtual volunteer' mode? Even on flight mode it does eat away at the battery. I was testing it then yesterday as a scanner with my own wristband at an awkward angle, seems to be a knack to it.

    It was too zoomed in to even scan my own. And then holding it far away it just wouldn't focus. Camera works perfectly outside of the app. Bizarre.

    I've only ran Tymon 6 times, on 4 different routes. Mile 2 might stop folk coming back to it until the works are finished 😀 fair paly to RayCun and the rest of the volunteers. Very well run given the new course and challenges #snotrockets

    There is a confirmed problem with the app and Huawei phones which results in the camera going nuts.


    parkrun HQ know about it, but if you have the motivation it wouldn't do any harm to email them so they can see how many people are having issues with it.
