Results of the Cork BHAA 'Harvey Norman' 5 Mile Road Race - Wed 17th June 2009
This was the first local road race after the Cork City Marathon on what was a fine summers evening. It looks like there was a huge turnout, perhaps as a result of the influx of Marathon relay runners trying out another race?? Update...There were 460 runners in this race! I know people keep saying the numbers are big but getting 460 runners for what is only just a 5 mile road race is pretty amazing. If you look back a few years or look at other races throughout the country, a race of this type would normally attract about 150 entrants.
The full results are now available HERE
