The 2011 John Buckley Sports 5 km road race in Cork City attracted a large entry on Tuesday evening and while the number has to be confirmed, it looks as if it is in the region of 700 runners.
The winner of the mens race was Mark Hanrahan in a time of 14:46, well ahead of his nearest rival Ryan Creech in 2nd place with 15:19. Just behind in 3rd place was former Cork City Marathon winner Michael Herlihy in 15:23.
In the ladies race, Lizzie Lee ran 16:48 to win as well as setting a new course record. Annette Quaid finished 2nd in 17:32 while Rhona Lynch finshed just behind in 3rd with 17:39.
Also taking part in the race was the Irish International racewalker Rob Heffernan who was using it as a training session . Rob is currently in training for the World Championships in Korea which is coming up in August / September.
