The signs were ominous for this race....there were heavy showers all day and the sky above at 8pm had some very dark clouds. Yet it was bone dry as we started and it looked like as if we had got some of that East Cork luck as the rain held off. However, this was one race that was not organised by Ballycotton Running Promotions because just 15 minutes into the race, the heavens opened up. It was like something out of the Old Testament and Noah's flood as it poured down. I can honestly say that I never got so wet, so fast in a road race! Not that it slowed anyone down because wet or not, we were now more anxious than ever to finish ;o)
