First Buncrana park walk


First Buncrana park walk

This week we had a fantastic turnout of sixty participants and were delighted to welcome 24  walkers today for our inaugural park walk. Participants will have noticed the new specially designed markings on the course, kindly designed and made by Siobhan Kavanagh, one of our local volunteers, stencils with parkrun logos showing kilometre markings. Jason and Siobhan were helped in setting up the course by Elizabeth McDaid and Trina Mhic Donaill who accurately measured the distances. 60 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 24 were first timers and 9 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part.We had a great intro with Siobhan Quinn doing a warm up, and we were delighted to have music at the event,  with a boombox provided by our friend Marie Clare Hassett. We are planning to have music every week from now on so get your dancing feet on!

The event was made possible by 10 volunteers:

Jason LE MASURIER • Liz LE MASURIER • Eugenie CAVANAGH • Elizabeth MC DAID • Gloria MC GINLEY • Breege COLLINS • Michael COLLINS • Stephen DIGGIN • Alison BARDINI • Siobhan QUINN

Today’s full results and a complete event history can be found on the Buncrana parkrun Results Page.

Marathon // Europe // Germany // October

10/11/2020 // Munich, Germany // $91.00


The cityscape of the home of Munich Marathon is characterized by centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The Bavarian capital is known for the annual Oktoberfest and it’s sportiness. In the old town on the central Marienplatz there are landmarks such as the neo-Gothic New Town Hall, whose popular carillon plays melodies and stories from the 16th century.

The city of München Marathon is a natural habitat of Mediterranean-style street cafes, highbrow art and high-tech industry, Germany’s unofficial southern capital is a flourishing success story that revels in its own contradictions. If you’re looking for Alpine clichés, they’re all here, but the Bavarian metropolis has many an unexpected sides to be discovered.

With that being said, the Munich Marathon is the place to be!!

Whoever has competed in one of the editions of München Marathon knows that tingling sensation. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible; only subsiding when the starter’s pistol finally sounds and your sightseeing tour through Munich starts right away.
