Great race, well organised and wonderful support from the local community. Only gripe would be charging people 3 euro for a burger afterwards when they had already forked out 15 euro to enter. But then athletes shouldn't be eating burgers I suppose! :) Well done to all.

Super race. Real chance of a PB for most runners here, i would think. Stewarding excellent. Testing headwind at times on the outward 3 miles to Timoleague, but the flat course more than compensated. In reference to the first comment, i think some runners weren't aware that the complimentary food for runners was actually inside the hotel, abd boy was it good ! - in past where the guys were cooking the burgers. I remember the same thing happened last year. I personally told at least 10 people who couldn't find the post-race food, where to go. Needs addressing for next year. I remember same thing happened to me last year. Well done to all. Great night in Courtmac.

Smashing race, lovely course with a great atmosphere along the route and especially at the finish and hotel afterwards. Chip timing an extra bonus this year. A start mat and an on time start too, unlike my last race, the Cork city half. Only small gripe would be: why mark a 10k race in miles only? Make it a 6 miler in that case. Looking forward to next year already.

Just a note on the mile markers..

It's pretty standard for all races to use mile markers rather than km markers regardless of what the distance is. The vast majority of people use minutes per mile to judge their pace and using mile markers allows people to judge how they are doing.

5k and 10k are standard race distances all over the country and they nearly all use mile markers. People can compare their respective 5k and 10k times whereas a 3 mile or 6 mile race would be seen to be a bit odd.

What about those lunatics who went in to the sea afterwards, nut cases :)
Would love to see the photos as well, if they are about,
