Sportsworld were out in force with 42 runners completing the race. the course is a mix of roads and park running with the section between mile 3 and 4 taking place in the scenic st annes park.
The race has it all, some down hill some climbing some sharp bends but most of all it has phenomenal support. all along the roads were people cheering and shouting encouragement. despite the rain, the atmosphere was fantastic and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed every step of the race.
There was huge support from Sportsworld, the voice of the legendary Dick.Hooper greeted us in the home straight, with Susan McGovern shouting encouragement.
The pace upfront was fast. two time winner Mark Christie was the overall winner, pulling away from Rio Olympian and local man Mick Clohisey in the last 500m in an exciting finish. first lady home was Barbara Cleary from Donore in impressive fashion from Catriona McKiernan.
The Sportsworld crew had some great performances. 42 runners completed the course led home by Conor McCarty in an excellent time of 2806 followed closely by Michael Cunningham. First lady home was Margaret Crowley followed closely by Naoise Waldron . Super to see so many people in the red and white running excellent times.
