Results of the Cork BHAA 'Cork to Cobh' 15 Mile Road Race...Sun 4th Oct 2009
Conditions for this race was almost ideal.....nice and cool for the start, bright but not sunny with a very gentle breeze. It was only after the 2 hour mark that the clouds began to part and the slower runners got some warm sunshine to contend with. As for numbers in the race, I hear that it was somewhere around the 800 mark which if true, is a jump up from last year's 673 finishers. How long before they break the 1,000 mark?? In 2 or 3 years time??? Looking back to 2002, they got just 242 finishers. That's a big difference in just 7 years.
Results......the results can be found HERE.
Here are the top 10...
1 S Ciobanu (AIBP) 76:43; 2 S Bralitis (West Waterford) 76:58; 3 B MacMahon (Clonliffe) 77:43; 4 D O’Callaghan (HSE) 82:34; 5 R Zakis (West Waterford) 83:18; 6 D Kerins (West Limerick) 84:01; 7 C O’Connell (UCC, M45) 84:28; 8 M Boyle (unatt) 85:49; 9 D O’Leary (St Finbarrs) 86:46; 10 V Neumerzhitskiy (AIBP, M40) 87:49.
