Well done to all concerned. Good flat route and lots of support on the way was a help. Definite a PB course. Lovely cuppa afterwards made a trip to Youghal very enjoyable. Will be back

Hi - congrats to Youghal on a very well organized 5K. My first Youghal AC 5K. great crowd and conditions were great for it.Fab spread in the hall afterwards too!!

I have a question about the people at the finish line handing out brown envelopes.... anybody know what these were for? envelopes were also being handed out to a few runners in the hall afterwards at refreshments.
Just curious - never seen this at a race before!

Please note the brown envelopes were spot prizes.

The envelopes were spot prizes. I got one for the first time every, although I was almost last so it was a nice touch, A great run, good craic in the centre afterwards as well.

Well done to Youghal AC for putting on a very well run race last night!

Great support for the race and it was nice to be able to run through the town on closed streets.

Well worth the trip down from Cork, see ye next year !

Clock was definitely out, I crossed the line thinking I had a pb only to find out there was at least 5 seconds of a difference from the clock time to my result time

Tks for the spot prize as the other runner said. For us non speedies who can get ignored at the best of times it was a lovely touch from Youghal AC. As a club I often admire ye as your club seems very united.
