Results of the Cork BHAA 5km 'Cross Country Challenge' - Sun 13th Jan 2008
The heavy rain on the Saturday made sure that this BHAA 5km Cross Country race was going to be very wet and soft underfoot. And so it turned out to be with some very slippy sections in Beaumont Park, especially at the sharp corners where the ground got cut up. As the course was made of 3 laps of a large loop circuit, the ground got worse as time went on. There was one particular bad spot about half way around the loop where the ground was very steep and muddy. It was very difficult to get a good grip and run this almost felt like you would be faster going up on all fours ;o)

The full results are now available on the Cork BHAA website. The link is HERE.

The Cork BHAA also have a set of photos up on the on this LINK.

Additional Note...It was announced at the race that the BHAA ' St.Vincent's ' 5km race in Knocknaheeny on the 16th of March has been cancelled.
