"Published results seem about 30 seconds too slow. Hills were something else!! Well organised. Great setting for a race....Anonymous"

"Hi John. Great event, lovely course, great scenery, well organized, plenty of choc bars, drinks, fruit afterwards, lovely medals and T-shirts for all finisher's. One tough climb that lasted one mile but it was early in the race so did not bother me at all. The rest of the course was pretty flat with some small drags here and there. The finish was very well done with the right hand side of the road was closed off with tape and cones. I'm guessing a half a mile to the finish line so you had no obstructions in the way, runners warming down were kept well out of the way from the guys finishing their race which of course is always good. Over all, well worth the journey and the entry fee. Will hope to do this race for many years to come. Has to go down as one of my favourite events. Well done to all the organizer's and stewards for a wonderful half marathon.........Kind Regards, John Dunphy, Rising Sun AC"
"The official results are bizarre, they added 30 seconds to everyone's time. The race itself was great, and those hills are still as tough as ever. I know the entry fee is steep, but as long as they keep the race so well organised. I'll keep coming back....Thomas"
"Well organised, parked at Bantry and bused to start. The hills made for interesting pacing. Early start meant plenty of time for well desrved lunch and time to take in scenic drive/walk afterwards. Great day out!......Anonymous"
"It was a great race and well organised but it's very strange that the official results were so far out. I thought chip timing was suppose to be bang on.....Anonymous"
"My guess is there was a false start, then around 30sec later the race began. It was well organised with plenty of water stations and great support along the course. Well done keep up the good work.......N O'Mahony"
"Hi John. The team at Bayrun 08 have now gone back on the results and have changed the times for each athlete by 30 seconds. The new results of Bayrun 08 are now on www.bayrun.ie ,just click on results....John Dunphy, Rising Sun AC "
