Midleton voted best 5 mile race in Cork in 2016
The poll for the best 5 mile road race in Cork in 2016 closed recently and the winner was the Mdleton 5 mile held last May. It got nearly 42% of the total vote which shows how popular a race it was.
The Carrigaline 5 mile race was the runner up in second place with 15% while the East Ferry 5 mile finished in 3rd with 11.8%, just ahead of the Millstreet 5 mile in 4th pace with 11%.
The Midleton 5 mile which was held in May 2016 got a record 654 finishers. Some part of that surge in numbers was no doubt due to the fact that Midleton AC were recording their 50th anniversary.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.
