Gorey Parkrun participants and volunteers arrived in style to celebrate its second anniversary.

What a better way to mark the milestone than complete a 5km route around Gorey town park in fancy dress, followed by some refreshments and cake.

Event director Gareth Mitchell said they had a total of 85 people walk and run the route, with some visitors from Dublin and the Polish Runners Club Ireland.

The proceedings were made possible by the efforts of the volunteers. The hot drinks facilities were provided by the Ashdown Park Hotel.

Gareth said he would like to thank the Ashdown Park Hotel for the help and to Gorey Municipal District for allowing them to use the park for their weekly run.

Gorey Parkrun is free and open to everyone of all abilities. Register online at

The Gorey Parkrun group meet every Saturday morning at 9.30 a.m. in Gorey Town Park, weather permitting.
