There was a huge turnout for the inaugural Grant Thornton 5k in Cork City on Tuesday the 30th of June with 832 runners taking part. Considering it was the first year and the sheer number of other races on at the moment, that's an impressive number for a first outing.
The Grant Thornton 5k has been run in Dublin for the last few years and this was the first race outside the capital. It was organised by Athletics Ireland and most of the proceeds went towards their Junior High Performance Programme.
