Results of the Ballintotis 4 mile road race - Wed 17th Apr 2019

There was a huge turn out of 1240 runners for this years Ballintotis 4 mile road race, a new record!

I had noticed that the race notice that I put up a few weeks back seemed to be getting a lot of hits but I certainly didn't expect the numbers on the night to be anywhere like 1200 plus.

Medals.... The organisers had purchased 1200 medals for all finishers as it was 10th anniversary of event. As more than 1200 showed up, some people did not get a medal.

The organisers would like to apologise to the people who did not get a medal but if they send their race number, name and address to johncashman100 AT gmail DOT com

The medal will be posted as soon as possible.  Circa: 3 weeks

Race... As for the race, it looks like a clean sweep for the East Cork AC men with them taking the top three places. Fiona Santry of East Cork AC also retained her title.

It's a really good event & superbly organised as well. Knew there was a big crowd there but things ran as smoothly as ever. Well done to all involved.
