Results & Photos of the Cork BHAA UCC 10k road race - Sun 3rd Apr 2016
The annual Cork BHAA UCC 10km road race was held on the usual Lee Road / Straight Road circuit on Sunday the 3rd of April 2016. Conditions for the race were pretty good with a small bit of sunshine at times. In fact, it was pretty lucky in that there was rain earlier in the morning and a heavy drizzle returned in the early afternoon.
This race consistently gets good numbers every year so it was always going to be interesting to see how it would hold up against previous years. In 2016, a total of 483 runners took part which was down 9.5% on the 2015 figure.
As you can see from the chart above, the UCC race used to get about 150 runners in the early 2000's before the running boom started in about 2006. The numbers have grown since then until they leveled off around 2012.
The one change this year was that the entry fee for non-reg runners went from €8 to €10. Did this have an impact? I'm be inclined to think it didn't. We'll have to wait until next year to see if this is a trend of just a blip.
