Results & photos of the Cork BHAA Novartis 5k race...Wed 3rd Aug 2016
Weather conditions were dry and overcast for this years Cork BHAA Novartis 5k road race on Wednesday the 3rd of August 2016. A total of 392 runners took part which is a 27% drop on the 2015 numbers.
At the front of the field, Mark Hanrahan had a huge lead over the rest of the field even after just two miles. It was pretty obvious at the two mile mark that it was more of a time trial for Mark than it being a race. You can look at the results and the times but it's only when you see Mark pass and then you stand and wait for the next person to pass that you see how huge the gap was.
