The Blackrock A.C Fit4Life group, established in July 2013, took part in their inaugural group run in Marlay Park on August 31, 2013. Ten of the group turned up on a nice autumnal Saturday morning to take part in weekly 5km Parkrun along with 400 others. For the majority of the group, it was their first ever 5km. First home from the group was Patricia Forde followed by Pat Nolan, Lynne Walsh, Catherine McCabe, Eithne Linnane, Stephanie McDonnell, Yvonne O’Friel, Carmel Flaherty, Kathleen Wolfe and Marguerite Slyne. Well done all!
